Said on Price of the ......


That is a fair point WolfWitcher518. But, already own the Ulamogs and Kozileks and making a 13th commander deck atm seems like too many, especially one which has the Eldrazi titans.

As long as you have a good curve of legendary creatures, and you don't need to specifically pull anything with CMC 7 or higher, you shouldn't need any Sisay pumps and are better off with some protection (Counters/Greaves/etc).

If you find you do need some extra oomph, then I would recommend,

Blackblade Reforged: Cheap to get out with Sisay and makes her stupid big.

Primal Empathy: Decent budget option. It grows Sisay, and when she's already big you draw.

Evolutionary Escalation: Potentially terrible but a great political card. I've made good deals with this card and its just silly and fun to have on the field.

I have a shrine deck with Sisay, Weatherlight Captain at the helm. How do you think Jodah works or how has he been working for you as a commander?

Not a clue but nice to know there dropping. Still too high for me to purchase without a deck that wants them though.

I like it.

You may want to consider Bloodchief Ascension. It works great with mill and it combos with Mindcrank.

You may also want to consider some graveyard hate such as Tormod's Crypt in case you sit across from Muldrotha. Milling can incidentally turn a lot of decks on.

Always a fan of a rat deck, especially ones with not so obvious commanders.

Said on High-cost abilities...


Purphoros, God of the Forge: Not amazing but not bad. He's generally used for the ETB triggers.

Feldon of the Third Path: Similar vein. Worth it if your creature heavy or even if you have key features on creatures you want ETB's or an activation for.

Soul of New Phyrexia: Indestructible is nice.

Aggravated Assault: Great for Aggro, even better if it only costs 3.

Captivating Crew: Throw in a sac outlet and laugh.

Dawn of Hope: This I think could work with Zirda without any other life gain. Two mana for a 1/1 lifelink at instant speed is worth it, tack on 2 mana to draw a card whenever it attacks or blocks and its a must have.

Eldrazi Displacer: Don't know if Zirda reduces the waste cost but it can blink/save a creature for 1.

Endbringer: Same as above. Drawing for free is nice though.

Also, Zirda reduces equip costs. So you could have a pseudo voltron or just add swords. I didn't find or know of a planar effect on a creature though.

Your own post is self-gratification. I said that because you commented again on my thread after I said/did nothing. You also seem to comment on all the black rose decks with the main reason to please yourself. Not my fault you can't see this.

The 'learn English' or 'get a dictionary' argument is junior high idiocy which backs up my original point you are 14 yr. wold who needs to grow up.

Telling me to 'grow up' literally right after I told you is also pointless. It reminds me of 'you're a towel' retort from Towl-ee from South Park, so thank you for the chuckle.

Lastly, I'm not going to your deck lists or posts and causing BS. Just be a man and walk away. I deleted your first two posts after you threw a fit and I moved on until you kept posting. Sadly, it seems you can't. Please prove me wrong.

Said on Cards that hold ......


Grave Pact ninth edition is my favorite card. It was the first rare I ever pulled and it does everything a black card should. It rewards you for filling the yard and punishes opponents for doing so. It could only be better if it has 4 black pips instead of 3, not for devotion but because black magic is the best.

Hissing Miasma: I don't think this is the first card strictly with this effect but I do believe it is the first one that only hurt your opponents. I loved running this card. It was too flavorful thinking my opponents creatures may choke to death just to attack me.

Souls of the Faultless: Simple and effective. If you hit me you'll be hitting yourself and only helping me. This guy saved me in plenty of games and made Orzhov my favorite guild.

Slow Clap

Good job random 14 yr. old child. Your perceived abuse at not getting likes or re-comments has led you to trolling. I'm sorry you need constant self-gratification but it's not my job to give it to you and it's rude to demand it. Stop being butt hurt over literally nothing. Try to grow up. Just sayin.

I would prefer if it stopped them from string to be honest.

Who needs boardwipes to protect from attackers when there is Peacekeeper, Ensnaring Bridge, Sphere of Safety, and Meekstone?

July 31, 2020 4:12 p.m.

Arcades, the Strategist: Provides solid card draw with literal walls to protect your walkers (many of which can fly). I've seen some disgusting Superfriends builds with this guy specially buing in green to ramp to Karn Liberated and Ugin, the Spirit Dragon.

Lavinia, Azorius Renegade: Good stax commander. Slow down the board to a crawl and just get the emblem for every azorious planeswalker out there. I have a Lavinia stax deck with a Superfirends sub-theme (8 walkers) and it is not challenging to get their emblems.

Bonus, being in azorious colors for both commanders gives the best superfriends cards of them all with Oath of Teferi. Arcades just gets better with Doubling Season.

Said on Avacyn's bombs...


When someone mentioned Soulscour it made me think of Soul Snare. It works better with recursion but it can be a great deterrent. I've seen multiple players leave a troublesome planewalker alone because they don't want to lose one of the two creatures they could attack with.

It may be worth considering if your meta has a tough time making choices or committing.

Said on Avacyn's bombs...


I would cut:

Sensei's Divining Top: Good card but it doesn't ramp you or generate card advantage. You don't need top deck manipulation.

Mask of Avacyn: Either remove or replace with Swiftfoot Boots. It's just too much mana to equip.

Linvala, Keeper of Silence: Good stax card but unless your meta gives you problems with activated abilities that specifically stop your commander it should be cut.

Cards you may consider to swap out for others:

Catastrophe: You only have one mass land destruction. This is a good back up and modal. I would swap it out for End Hostilities.

Ghostly Prison: You don't have much protection outside of board wipes. If your meta has too many go-wides or aggro decks this is worth considering. I would swap for one of your 3 mana ramp cards since this should buy you time to ramp to your commander if you do slot it in.

Said on None...


Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas might be alright due to you running 14 artifacts. He just helps to get your ramp pieces and has the bonus of gaining you life late-gate which would help since I didn't see any cards that gained life other than Enter the God-Eternals.

You may also want to look at cards like Animate Dead and Dance of the Dead since I didn't notice any cards you were using to steal from your opponent's graveyards.

This deck looks really fun though. Best Bolas deck I've seen flavor-wise.

Said on Mono Red Tips ......


I would run Blood Moon. It doesn't get you ahead but helps to put mono-red on an even playing field. It's just the red version of Hall of Gemstone.

July 27, 2020 11:49 p.m.

I have. I also finally got a Rankle, Master of Pranks and have tried him out to 'eh' results. I need to play with Rankle some more to see if he's actually worth it but its hard to overcome the +2 life per turn.

I plan on tinkering on this deck some more after I pick up tinybones and the new lily planeswalker. Tiny bones will definitely make the 99, and at least a trial run as the commander.

July 27, 2020 9:37 p.m.

You could try Conjurer's Closet and Thassa, Deep-Dwelling to get repeatable bounce.

Also, Spark Double and silly things like Blade of Selves and Mirror Gallery if you don't mind jumping hoops or just pulling rabbits out of hats.

Edit: Never mind on the first two recs, just caught the mana requirement. Instead I would run Crystal Shard to bounce your own creature.

July 26, 2020 10:23 p.m. Edited.

Expanding on Timmy's card glare comment,

Try to either not use sleeves or specifically non-glare sleeves.

Best of luck with the videos.

Said on Commander ideas?...


I would recommend going through and looking at EDHREC's top commanders or through their top commanders of your preferred color/colors. See if anything pops out as particularly fun. Also, their random button is a good way to just find commanders you had no idea about.

In general though, I would recommend a commander that can be built a myriad of ways. Ergo, like aforementioned Marchesa. Marchessa The Black Rose can be built easily as a combo, theft, +1/+1 counters, and/or aggro. I personally built a Marchessa combo/aggro and its really fun.

The opposite is to stay away from linear commanders. Chulane, Teller of Tales looks initially good but all the builds end up 80% the same. The Arcum Dagsson I built ended up being a linear commander. I built a toolbox to be reactionary but most of the time it just makes sense to grab and assemble a lock out combo such as Mycosynth Lattice, Darksteel Forge, and Nevinyrral's Disk. He proved to not be fun when I played him as it was mostly the same (I would argue any commander that tutors will end up being too linear or too many tutors make a linear deck).
