Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder

Legendary Creature — Ogre Wizard

Trample

Whenever Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder deals combat damage to a player, as you cast spells from your hand this turn, they gain cascade. (When you cast the spell, exile cards from the top of your library until you exile a nonland card that costs less. You may cast it without paying its mana cost. Put the exiled cards on the bottom of your library in a random order.)

Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder Discussion

BMHKain on

@MindAblaze: As I was about to rebuild Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder from scratch, I will agree on the following:

  1. I do agree that some fat is underpowered in their own way. As I'm currently pondering this predicament, I'm starting low to see what abilities are truly underpowered in addition; thus deserving the Zweihander's Cleave .

  2. Just replaced them Rings w/ Whatever a Resonator is... .

  3. As for Stompy Aggro: Would I put Vanilla Fat in? I do like some consistency; (Glares Demonically at Hamletback Goliath .) but seriously, I may as well cut some while I'm on a case. For now though, I've stuff to do...

Mana Maelstrom

Land

: Add , , , or to your mana pool. Until the end of turn, pay 1 life for each spell you cast or copy or it becomes countered.

The convergence of energy spiraled in a whirl of danger and of ruin. I saw its power and wanted it for myself.


I was thinking of Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder and wanting a card that was somewhat balanced cascade or storm effects.

Let's have a Golgari-themed and golgari-colored counterspell! (be inspired by Veil of Summer and/or Withering Boon )

BMHKain on Atla Palani wants to be ...

Guys. Relax please; I already made my decision: It's unfortunate the Mirror Entity , +1/+1, & Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre combo is going to be something nearly on level to be a Turn 2 or later something I never planned (Sorry, Caerwyn.). Though the Thornbite Staff & Ashnod's Altar cards, among any similar that could do good still. Though Ad Infinitum is too much. That said, I've other things for now; any ideas for my direction? Oh, & I'm planning to update my Superfriends Deck, but I want to find some new cards for the deck nobody thought of. That, & I plan to change Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder to a 5 Color Chaos Commander; but who?

Finally, I wonder how to conform my manabase for each deck of mine; the Lands seem off-sync.

I apologize for all this. Thanks for the help; now how to make it? After all this, I wonder who should run my last CMDR Deck? I was thinking of someone from Throne of Eldraine, but who?

BMHKain on Recent updating as of Throne ...

1 month ago

I decided to post this as I had no text-based presence in some time now. I'll try my best to not to reference anything this time, & so on...

W/ Throne of Eldraine not only looking surprisingly good, even if I dunno how the Adventure Keyword works, There are several things I wanted to ask about in particular. Frankly, I wanted to start w/ Kenrith, the Returned King (Where is his card?!). Awesome that he is Prime Human Tribal Material as a 99 via Morophon, the Boundless under the Human Type. But I'm having mere hope he'd also make for a great Superfriends CMDR; but that became out of the question; my deck of such a type doesn't even run that many creatures; 3/5 Abilities Nullified; one of which ( BTW.) might help your opponents more.

Not as good as everyone said he was now, huh...

Not even the only part of this: The Royal Scions can Loot, give a creature +2/+0, Trample & First Strike, & Drawing 4 to burn any target equal to your current handsize. Crazy? Yes. "Where is our follow up to Will Kenrith ?" Uh... No. You'll have to deal w/ Rowan Kenrith as well sadly. As for her: Rowan, Fearless Sparkmage , Buff a creature by +3/+0 & gives First Strike? Awesome. Deal 1 to two creatures & they can't block? Awesome. &, they even seemed to taken a Number from (OK, now I want a third, actually decent Tibalt; unless he died during WAR) where they both take control of all enemy creatures, untap them, & they all have Haste; & it's kinda like a wincon, kinda? Fine, I'll give you Oko. Oko, Thief of Crowns is just, AWESOME. & some awesome abilities: Creating a Food Token, which when sac'd gives you 3 Life; just like any Video Game w/ Food as an item (Well, not all of them...). this Faerie Badass even can render your opponents Artifice & creatures to 3/3 Elks w/ no abilities. You can even barter for any of your opponents' Elks for one of your own. But you want to ruin your opponent's plans right? Then kill his Mana Rocks! Even Oko, the Trickster can buff a creature w/ 2 +1/+1 Counters, also, this guy can do a better impression of Gideon Jura (I guess that's why WotC killed him off; All of Gideon's Planeswalker Cards suck.) by becoming any creature, & he can't be damaged until the End of Turn, when he becomes himself again. But he will force a Hellstorm by making all your creatures Base Stat's 10/10, & get Trample each. They're initial abilities remain unchanged.

"But what about the new Garruk?!"

Irony? He finally makes an appearance. Garruk, Cursed Huntsman . While he won't get off the field as easily as the other Garruks, having 2 2/2 Wolves that buff all Garruk Walkers you control by one each when they die is epic. Killing a creature even allows Card Advantage. His Emblem can even give your creatures +3/+3 & Trample. This may not seem like much, until you realize, the more you keep using this Emblem again & again, you realize how much leftover damage can be forced onto your opponents. It's that BIG.

After all that is said & done, I actually was thinking of what hidden gems Post-WAR era Superfriends would be good w/… Any ideas until even now? I'm pondering as Spoilers for Throne of Eldraine is still in progress.

Alright, Time to get off the Superfriends Bandwagon, & I wanted to do some kind of deck similar to Mayael the Anima , Atla Palani, Nest Tender is my best bet; but I don't want to just put in stuff w/ a thematic element; Dinosaurs... & actually want him/her/dunno to actually be a better Mayael than she would ever be. I already know what stuff to harvest such eggs in Record Time. The question now is: How to make Atla Palani, Nest Tender better than Mayael at everything she could ever do?

So overall... I actually want some help yet again; I tried it myself; failed in spite of the effort, but at least did something. I hope one is glad about this. I'll just make some more cuts for some of my more recent stuff for now...

Final Question: Are you in? Taplands are forbidden from the Landbases BTW. Just a thought in case you can find a way to have a 1-Color Manabase, 2-Color Manabase or 3+ Color Manabases. This means Path of Ancestry & the 10 Tri-Lands are out.

I really might need your help yet again, I'll try & work on somethings though; just to prove I'm actually worth something. That, & I might actually change my Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder deck from 4 Colors to 5. Just leave that to me...

Are you okay w/ these terms? A lot, yes, But I'll have to force my efforts for Goat Tribal Anyway.

Thanks for reading; & I appreciate whatever help in the future.

Oh, & my apologies for the huge wall. I guess that's the kind of post I can only do... XL

(CAUTION: A Huge List of CMDRS dead ahead. If you can't comply, remember that I apologized for the huge wall.)

Well, I was just told how to do a Folder, but to choose what for decks is another thing entirely. Especially if such decks are either:

A: What Everyone Plays B: Are good, but have since been outdated by a year C: Are Tribal Leaders in a Specific Sense (No Morophon, the Boundless please.) D: Not Underdog CMDRs. E: Other.

Let's Just assume we use that cEDH Deck Tier List One-by-One; but w/ a new rule for Playtesting such decks so none of the cEDH Decks win out of overall ratios ~100% of the time; CHANNELFIREBALL-style. That said, From using the Tier List, I require the following CMDR Decks to not have cEDH Level Power, but are these:

Tier 0:

Thrasios, Triton Hero & Tymna the Weaver Partners

Tier 1:

Kess, Dissident Mage

Kraum, Ludevic's Opus

Najeela, the Blade-Blossom

The First Sliver (Not as a Sliver Tribe Leader)

The Gitrog Monster

Urza, Lord High Artificer

Vial Smasher the Fierce

Yisan, the Wanderer Bard

Zur the Enchanter

(NOTE: Unknown if Kraum, Ludevic's Opus & Vial Smasher the Fierce need to be Parters to be of this level.)

Tier 2:

Animar, Soul of Elements (Morph Decks not allowed.)

Baral, Chief of Compliance (Get your Counterspells Ready!)

Brago, King Eternal

Breya, Etherium Shaper

Circu, Dimir Lobotomist

Derevi, Empyrial Tactician

Edric, Spymaster of Trest

General Tazri (Mandatory Ally Tribe Leader)

Ghave, Guru of Spores

God-Eternal Kefnet

Godo, Bandit Warlord

Golos, Tireless Pilgrim

Grand Arbiter Augustin IV

Meren of Clan Nel Toth

Mizzix of the Izmagnus

Momir Vig, Simic Visionary

Narset, Enlightened Master

Niv-Mizzet, Parun

Niv-Mizzet Reborn

Oona, Queen of the Fae

Prime Speaker Vannifar

Prossh, Skyraider of Kher

Ramos, Dragon Engine

Rashmi, Eternities Crafter

Teferi, Temporal Archmage

The Mimeoplasm

Varolz, the Scar-Striped

Xantcha, Sleeper Agent

Yarok, the Desecrated

Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder

Tier 3: WIP

But, yeah, you get the picture, right? Since I can't find such decks on my own to put in such a folder for decks worth testing against your own. Rules are as follows though:

  1. It needs to be up to date, prior to the Iona, Shield of Emeria & Paradox Engine bans & Painter's Servant unbanning/CMDR 2019's release; or just not include any of those at all.

  2. Each deck must not be of cEDH-level power; just imagine how much hell I'd have to playthrough against something just to beat a Thrasios/Tymna Partners deck just to have my claim on this notion nullified.

  3. Decks must include CMDRs that are Popular, were Popular as well as Tribal Decks w/ Good Tribe Leaders (For example: The First Sliver & Sliver Queen do not fit this category where Sliver Overlord does fit the Sliver Tribe Leadership. Scion of the Ur-Dragon & The Ur-Dragon can both count as Dragon Tribe CMDRs. Atraxa, Praetors' Voice is actually a bad CMDR to use in Superfriends, but Shines in all Counter Life. Make good use of that instead of making a 4< Color Walkers Deck. The rulings go on...)

I know this is too much for now, but I'm making a folder for Playtesting w/ decks as everyone kept telling me to do so; now I want to hold my end of the Bargain. But I seriously need help from you to do this. If you can find any decks here to add to such a Folder, put it on the comments below.

(& no, It's not like it's a personal thing! Anyone is allowed to use it when it's finished!)

Wookie1342 on Permeating Mass and Yidris, Maelstrom ...

2 months ago

I need some help with this particular interaction. If I am attacked by Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder and block with my Permeating Mass , since blockers assign damage first (the the Mass "deals combat damage), does Yidris become a copy of Permeating Mass before he assigns damage? I am trying to determine exactly when Yidris would become a copy and if his trample & triggered ability would still resolve? I hope this makes sense and thanks in advance.

What I like about Jodah is that I also have a Jodah deck -- Jodah Has a Few Tricks Up His Sleeve -- that I think is kickass, but using the compare decks feature I see that there's a difference of ~55 cards. It's sweet that he facilitates such a wide variety of decks -- there's no single best way to build it. I run a much lower CMC list, there are some differences simply because I don't have the cards ( Avacyn, Angel of Hope , Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite , Emrakul, the Promised End , Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger ), and I see why you wouldn't want to play Omniscience and Show and Tell .

Anyways, here's a handful of the cards that I run and you don't that I've had good results with:

Stardragon on Cascading Merfolk

3 months ago

I started a Temur (G/R/U) Merfolk Deck with Cascade elements but there was so little cascade that it wasn't worth adding. So I thought that I would either scrap the idea or adding a forth color, and I didn't want to scrape the idea because i really like it, so i added black and made Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder my commander. While it has more cascade elements, it is now over all less competitive than I would like. So if any one has any ideas to make this more competitive please let me know. (Ik 4 and 5 color deck are more casual than competitive (Minus some deck builds) but im trying get it as competitive as possiable without going over my budget) My Budget is is no more than $1100 but but less would be better.
