Last_Laugh on copy amd theft cpmmander ideas

2 weeks ago

Marchesa, the Black Rose is definitely your best bet for theft. She turns any temporary theft effect (i.e. Act of Treason ) into permanent theft with a sac outlet thanks to her wording. You can also abuse cards like Aura Thief to steal enchantments or Zealous Conscripts to steal creatures, ult walkers, etc.

Hello! Sorry for the late reply, had some issue with my service provider.

So let's see, I think I've considered most of these already, they are all really cool ideas, the main issue is making deckspace for them. Do you see anything that sticks out to you as potential cuts? Aftershock has generally been really good, people don't see it coming and being able to hit a broken land if needed is really powerful.

  1. Sensei's Divining Top : the main issue here is $$, I actually bought a copy not too long ago, but I put into my Titania, Protector of Argoth deck as it's just way too good there to go anywhere else. Feel free to check it out, The Entmoot if you have any interest. When I feel I can justify buying another copy, of course I will highly consider it for this deck.

  2. Ignite the Future : THIS is interesting and I had not considered it. Nice little synergy you pointed out there with Top as well. Great tip! I'll definitely give it a try when I get the chance.

  3. Light Up the Stage : I like it, don't get me wrong, but do I like it more than a recurrent value generator like Treasure Map  Flip or Mimic Vat ? I don't think so.. Has it performed for you?

  4. Jeska's Will : You're right, this should probably have a slot. Again, what to cut, if I shave anymore from the goblin package I don't think it's worth running them anymore.

  5. Zealous Conscripts : Precisely not in here because it combos with Kiki a bit too easily! I'm just not a huge fan of infinite combos in EDH that are too easy to pull off, and I have so many ways to search for Kiki.

  6. Dockside Extortionist : You're right, this guy would be totally nuts, but it comes down to $$ and I'm kiiinda hoping on a reprint before I splurge, we'll see how long my patience lasts heheh.

  7. Homeward Path : Absolutely if I find a slot for the Humble Defector this would be so cool. Again, slots. But perhaps I should prioritize the defector more than I currently am, haven't really tried it out, should try to proxy it up, but you know, not much going on where I live unfortunately on the gaming side because of covid :/

  8. Outpost Siege : it's cool and I definitely considered it, but I think there are other value/ping options that are far better, though the utility of being able to choose is nice ofc. I think if I do find I need another ping-style card this will be the go-to.

Thanks for your thoughts and such a in-depth comment on my deck. Really useful and appreciated!

Edit: I was gonna edit my own comment but deleted your original one by mistake! Ooops! Also I did not realize that Confusion in the Ranks triggers in that matter and neither has anyone in my group ever noticed hahah! But I think this just makes the card even more interesting, so thank you for pointing it out.

Sensei's Divining Top - Good on it's own, but with Ugin Ineffable and Experimental Frenzy , you can draw your entire deck. Frenzy isn't an entirely serious suggestion, but worth noting if you were interested.

How has aftershock performed for you? Might add it in my list, been on the fence about it.

Ignite the Future - "Draw" that helps land drops, nice with top as you can put top on top of the deck then cast this to ensure you can cast at least one card off the top. Do note you have until the end of your next turn to cast the cards. Since mono red struggle with draw, I have found this useful and it has won me 2 games through flashback.

Light Up the Stage - Baby brother of above, works well in this deck moreso due to your damage output

Jeska's Will - Draw and ramp

Zealous Conscripts - Good on it's own, combo with Kiki

Dockside Extortionist - Value on it's own, synergy with the treasure map artifact/land, nice with Genesis chamber too

Side Note: Did you know confusion on the ranks triggers on itself when it ETB's, meaning, you must change it for an enchantment an opponent controls? So few people know that, but it has saved me given red's lack of enchantment removal

I noticed Humble Defector in your maybeboard, I think it should go in along with Homeward Path . Path is nice politics so you can give stuff back IF you wish from confusion. Moreover, it messes with people trying to reanimate your stuff/others, again, politics. It's meta dependent for sure. If you're into politics, then it's a great card to pass between 2 players.

+1 for a low to the ground synergistic deck. I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts on each idea.

Hey, good update. Nice Canopy Vista Expedition :)

You could increase the power level of your deck by adding Zealous Conscripts , Skullclamp and Mirror Entity . Conscripts is an infinite combo win condition with Kiki that creates infinite Conscripts with haste to attack each opponent. Skullclamp equipped to an Egg kills the Egg, you draw two cards and then cheat a creature onto the battlefield. Do all this for one mana to equip.

Entity is an Egg and it's ability can turn all creatures you control into Eggs. You can pay 0 mana for Entity to make all creatures 0/0 Eggs which means they all die to trigger Atla. The reason I suggest Entity is because you have several cards that can put a +1/+1 counter on a creature you control which is what you want with Entity. If a creature has a +1/+1 counter then when Entity makes it a 0/0 Egg it will not die because Entity doesn't remove +1/+1 counters it only changes the original base power/toughness of a creature. If Atla has a +1/+1 counter then Entity makes her a 0/0 Egg and the counter will make her a 1/1.

Sometimes big creatures get stunk in your hand and you don't have the ramp to cast them; having a way to cheat a creature from your hand onto the battlefield can be helpful. Court of Bounty can be repeatable draw with the monarch, repeatable ramp if you have a land in your hand or repeatable cheat creature from your hand onto the battlefield.

Hardhitta7 on Creatures to copy with Riku?

1 month ago

I’m putting together a Riku of Two Reflections deck and have a ton of clones but I’m looking for suggestions on fun creatures to copy?

I don’t wanna rely solely on my opponents having good stuff to copy.

I’ve got Acidic Slime , Avenger of Zendikar , Biovisionary , Mulldrifter , Solemn Simulacrum , and Zealous Conscripts so far.

Hey thanks dude!

Heat Shimmer seems like a solid include, currently my Dualcaster Mage goes inf with Living Death and a sac source, but Heat Shimmer would give me an other alternative to the Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker Zealous Conscripts combo, basically same result.

Thanks for the suggestion.
