Post 'em Players!

If you play on MTGO, how did you decks fair?

Only 3 of my decks survived the MTGO banlist. Karametra required no changes since there are no artifacts in the deck. Ashling exchanged Sensei's Divining Top for Scroll Rack; an even trade IMO.

But poor, poor Isamaru. He lost 6 cards; Mana Crypt, Sol Ring, Mana Vault, Sensei's Divining Top, Humility, and Mishra's Workshop. The fast mana was converted to Chrome Mox, Mox Opal, and Grim Monolith. Sensei's Divining Top became Sigarda's Aid (trying it out), Humility became Torpor Orb (probably the most important function of Humility - the other option is Cursed Totem), and Mishra's Workshop became City of Traitors (trying it out, but should be a fine match with the MLD in the deck). I also swapped a plains for Ancient Den because of Mox Opal. We will see how it goes.

>> No.53190333

Able to swap Opal for the Sol Rings in my Toshiro and Zegana deck. Toshi required a replacement for Entomb which didn't have a straight swap so I tagged in Phyrexian Obliterator for more rattlesnake. Just plugged a forest into Freyalise. Azami and Nekusar didn't make it.

So last thread I noticed I had some people asking for deck lists, sorry for not responding I was out.

Here is all three lists.

>Remove Riff Raff

>The Grass is Greener

>The Great Filter

Marchesa is my personal favorite and has had a lot of work done even before uploading it.

Sisters I am more relaxed since I need at least one "fun" deck.

Seer is a more recent creation, I have yet to play him enough to know what changes are to be made.

>> No.53192242

I'd probably do it as each different color combination, seeding by popularity on EDHrec, take out any general that has 0 decks. Partners would be taken out and judged separately. Then do a round robin with the winner of each bracket.

>> No.53192256

Meren, Breya, and Prossh are fun commanders that happen to be the best of their colors. Oloro is pubstump tier. Why don't we not omit certain data and look at the other Commanders in top 10 that aren't autist bait, like Atraxa, Hapatra, Nekusar, Gay Hugs, Kaalia, Saskia, etc.

Want further proof of this:

Foodchain is in less than half of the most braindead easy competitive deck in Commander.

She's not. She's strong as fuck, but look at the other high tier decks and realize that they do things like write scripts to check if they can go infinite based on board state Chain Veil Teferi, or calculate probabilities of their mulligan getting them the exact pieces they need Doomsday Zur.

>To be fair, anyone that's 100% competitive and tryhard is probably going to be playing Thrasios + Vial instead of Thrasios + Kydele

Also to be fair, the Partner cards, and the mechanic as a whole, tanked pretty damn hard with the majority of Commander players.

>> No.53192536


I don't think the Mechanic tanked so much as the creatures with the Mechanic tanked because of how underwhelming they are.

I guess that means Partner tanked by default, but still.

>> No.53192554

Yeah, with the majority of commander players. Except for in competitive because with 4 colors to tutor up whatever you need and an infinite mana sink you can win off Thrasios/whoever on T3.

>> No.53192618

Once people realized the design scheme for the Partner Commanders was generic good ability associated with the colors with an overcosted effect/body the mechanic as a whole was poo-poo'd. Maybe if they want to revisit it in the future they can do something to make the cards actually interesting on their own and interact with each other more synergistically, but I don't foresee it coming back or how they can fix that design issue as a whole.

He doesn't like where I'm going with my board, but there's not much he can do about it. He topdecks a tutor. He spends a minute looking through his deck, contemplating the options. He makes his choice and then taps out the rest of his mana for it.

Help me out, here, /edhg/, I feel like I'm just watching my deck do too little and die short of everyone else, which is typically a symptom of too little mana. I'm considering a remedy of 6 guild signets, but I'm not sure what to cut. Right now, I'm feeling:
>Eternity Vessel
>Shrine of Loyal Legions
>Electrostatic Pummeler
>Workshop Assistant
>Sigil of Distinction
>Runed Servitor
Am I selecting which cards to cut correctly, or can someone spot deader weight in my 99?

Pummeler isn't supported by your deck, it's basically useless.
Shrine of Loyal Legions doesn't fit because you don't have many white spells and not a whole lot of proliferate.
Eternity Vessel... doesn't do anything for you.

Runed Servitor does little for you, and Filigree familiar does its job better.

Sigil of distinction is eh, but you can keep it.

I actually did that. In fact I switch Bruce and Kraum on occation since the only changes needed are like 4 cards that grant double strike. I just like Bruse because he's an infinitely better 'support' partner and opens my deck up for more value.

Seriously, people need to see Partners as "main partner/supporting partner". I always see a common misconception that both partners need to be out for the deck to function. Not true. Hell, Vial Smasher is the supporting partner for Kydele--who you dont even need to play 90% of the time since the decks combos are centered around Kydele. Vial can kill one person with infinite X-spell of any type if the stars align.

Daru Spiritualist + Shaman en-Kor / Lightning Greaves + Ayli / Starlit Sanctum / Disciple of Griselbrand = Infinite Life

Heliod, Hanweir Militia Captain and Wsetvale Abby create cleric tokens, which go well with Battletide Alchemist and Rotlung Reanimator. However, Heliod could be too mana intensive.

Rotlung Reanimator + Conspiracy + Sac Outlet = Infinite Recursion. Since your commander is a sac outlet you might want to give this a try.

Urza's Incubator makes your clerics cheap. Urza's Incubator + Edgewalker makes many of your clerics free. It might not be worth it, so you should test with a proxy before buying it.

Monarch is a fun mechanic, so Custodi Lich might be worth an include.

You need more card draw. Some synergistic cards include Harvester of Souls and Dark Prophecy because you'll be sacrificing a lot of creatures.
For non-situational draw use Erebos, because he's on-flavor considering all the clerics.
Skull Clamp is essential. Definitely get it.

Just so you know, you can sac Fiend Hunter before its ETB trigger resolves, meaning the creature it exiles stays exiled forever.

Any budgetish options for Newzilek or something fun in temur(except animar)/bant? As for a theme pretty much anything goes, dragons, worms, cute traps, would prefer something not exactly dependant/focused around on the commander, but wouldn't be bad if it had overall synergy with it.

Don't cross the memes

>> No.53206653

I used to think that land destruction had no place in casual EDH... But now I realize I had a warped view of casual EDH. I used to think that cards like Sheoldred, Jitte, Ulamog, a few God enchantment creatures, etc all had no place in casual EDH.
Nowadays I realize that these things are fine for casual EDH, but with that realization I've also realized that Land Destruction should be fine as well. The truth is that if someone is playing mono red they not only can't take care of powerful enchantments but they have very few ways to take out creatures with over 7 toughness or indestructible creatures. So are you going to tell me that they should either A) get very lucky or B) willingly lose the game because they have no options?
No, neither of those choices are acceptable. The truth is that land destruction is the most powerful tool in Red's arsenal, not using it puts mono red players at a supreme disadvantage. If you feel like you're allowed to use supremely strong creatures "because they can be removed" or supremely strong enchantments "because they can be removed" then I feel that I'm allowed to use supremely strong land destruction "because you can run mana rocks".
And just as you say "Well you should run more removal!" I say "Well you should run more mana rocks!" and then you can say "Well I do but they aren't in my hand right now!" and I reply WITH THE EXACT SAME SENTIMENT towards removal.
So at the end of the day I say this; If the point of casual edh is still to win, which it obviously is if you're running $20 powerful praetors, then I'm going to do what I can to win, which is to keep you from being able to play those praetors.

Voltron is like the opposite of relaxed, you're going to punch one guy to death so that he can't play for another hour and then everyone else will have caught up in tempo to control you to durdletown

My problem with using him for relaxed games is that you typically want those to last a while and be drama free.

Rafiq voltron is the opposite of relaxing, he will likely kill one player really fast. Then everyone else in rapid succession unless he is stopped, in which case the game can last for much longer.
It's a race against the clock, you need to kill people as fast as possible before they can stop you, and other players won't know if you will kill them first or not, so they treat you as the biggest threat.
