Thread Question:
What card describes you best as a deckbuilder and why? Not necessarily your favorite card, just the card that exemplifies your EDH life goals

Mine is pic related, I love to get huge value with low cmc spells, so wiping the board and reanimating my own stuff at the same time feels great

>thread question
One of my favorite EDH cards is Lurking Predators. It's very similar to Rhystic Study and the randomness leads to some very fun boards. Sometimes it's a do-nothing card but in 4 or more player games it can be incredible and when you've got some way to tutor or put creatures on top of your deck it's extremely fun.

I've made plays like Worldly Tutoring for Mystic Snake in response to the trigger and those are my favorite part of magic. Other times it is just a Timmy card that gives you free fatties.

If you don't want to just combo off, then I think a combo of lockdown and Voltron works. Get a bunch of enchants to hinder your opponents...prison effects, propaganda effects, Karmic Justice...

Then load up Zur with what >>54070305 mentions, and Ethereal Armor.

Oh yes, and Imprisoned in the Moon is amazing in Zur, especially on Commanders. My buddy played it on an opponent and the used Copy Enchantment to play it on me.

the goal of the deck is to make value plays and maybe win

I have a problem with deckbuilding I only can build either t1 decks or like 50% decks every time I try to build something in the middle it either comes out super shitty or just way too good.
I mostly play in the turn 4 combo metas playing stax and midrange decks or really bad build around me commanders for casual play
I just cant seem to get a good 75% list going that isnt just a net deck, never been a fan of net decking.
something like this list

Cocksuckers at wotc ignoring tradition really frustrates me. Having continuity and identifiable trends in the cards can give the game an extra je ne sais quoi instead of being a generic "fantasy game".

this card fits me well. Its a br staple for me but its also super secret tech that never once was a dead draw.

you look at it once, and thinks its really good.
look at it a second time, and think its really bad.
THEN you look at it a third time, you realize this can be devistating and can turn bad trades into good ones. add that with wither creatures and the new scorpion god, and you are looking at getting some draws on top of it.

quick question though, if a creature with the ability died and got reanimated in the same turn, would it still have the triggered ability?

it's different when they print cards in sets for other formats. in something like gatecrash, they couldn't just go full retard and print a really strong card with no drawbacks. they might have been thinking about EDH when they printed the card, but it's still not specifically made to sell packs to EDH players

however commander sets let them go full retard with their card designs, so you get stuff like prosh, oloro and jeleva which are just dumb, ez-mode cookie cutter commanders for people who just want the easiest way to win casual games with their 99 cards of mismashed unoptimized jank

meanwhile, building something like grimgrin actually forces you to think a bit. what's the best ratio of creatures to sac? do you need other sac outlets? should you run reanimation or just tokens? should you run zombie tribal effects? is it worth putting grimgrin at the helm of a UB goodstuff deck? and so on. it takes actual work to make someone like grimgrin to work, and it's all the more satisfying when it does.

There's a whole spectrum of viability in EDH and most people seem to forget that sometimes. And Adun isn't "viable in Craw Wurm meta", you misinterpreted that. With the analogy I meant to say that he isn't so useless that a very low powered deck would beat it. Adun is perfectly playable as a commander in a 75% meta if you make the right card choices, which is the point of the discussion: You don't need to resort to Prossh if you want to play Jund at all times.

If every time any poster wanted to voice an observation about a card or deck you though "Every card is "viable" in this format." no one would ever post in this general. You're resorting to scarecrowing and black on white comparisons. What do you want, a full Adun list? I could try and type up one as soon as I'm home, it would spark up more discussion.

So after playing my Hapatra deck a few times one guy started bitching about it using infinite combo's to win.
I'm a beginner at edh, so I didn't really make the deck with that in mind, I just found them while playing. I don't think the deck is even that good, 75% of it is shit I had lying around.
It's also quite obvious that everyone at the table should remove Hapatra asap, so that's on them. If I have Hapatra out and I'm able to cast cutthroat + blowfly infestation, tough shit.
It's just one guy that's being a dick, maybe I should call him out on the fact that he plays Krenko. Either he wins by turn 6, or bricks.

What does this even mean? "Viable in a 75% meta" is a nonsense phrase because it has no real qualitative data. I could easily build a brago stax deck, use it to lock down or remove everything my opponents have and swing in with storm crow for the win.

Does that mean that storm crow is viable in "75% metas"?

Like I said, it's edh. Everything is viable. You can only really get into a conversation about what's not viable when you are speaking about higher tiers of competitive play.

That being said, you can talk about what's good and what's not, and you can make it have meaning by comparing to existing cards. By this metric you can safely say that adun and storm crow aren't good.

Blightsteel or either Ulamog will do the job if you just wanna kill fools. I prefer original Ulamog because it's pretty tough to recover from even a single swing. Jin Gitaxias and Consecrated Sphinx will both draw you enough cards that you'd be hard pressed to lose, but they're pretty fragile comparatively. Akroma, Iona, and Avacyn are all resilient in their own way and make pretty good beatsticks if you're in charge of the game. Also consider maybe some of the Sword of X and Y cycle, I've found them to be reasonable ways to finish people off in the right deck.

Blightsteel is one of two ways:
>instant game-winning presence people hate more than anything
or
>instantly exiled, despite the insane combo required to set him up.

The best part about blightsteel is cloning him a bunch and instantly killing the table, but you wont be able to get haste on him unless you're incredibly lucky, particularly in esper, so you need to be counterspell backed if you're going to drop him.

Now, for artifact creatures, I like Inkwell Leviathan and Magister Sphinx, they're both ungodly powerful the second they come out and need to be answered quickly. Darksteel Colossus is blightsteel's brother with 1 cheaper CMC and no trample, though that's entirely up to you if you want to run it, particularly since it's less effective but gets less hate. Mycosynth Golem is awesome if you're planning on actually using creatures, because it'll often be very cost-effective and it'll let you play other things in your hand. Enigma Sphinx is also pretty neat because it cascades for 7, but the 3rd from the top clause after it dies is kind of... interesting. Memnarch is the man, always. Myr-battle sphere is backbreaking if you can flicker it, like I do in brago. Gemini Engine is really nifty if you can pump it, but esper control isn't fantastic at that. Steel hellkite is usually the go-to for just about anyone in any deck, but it might get you a lot of hate for running it. Silent arbiter is also a giant dick, particularly if you're running blightsteel.

There isn't too much exiling in my meta but it won't take long for them to catch on. Even with Swan Song I'll need 13 mana just to get him on the table before he can do anything. It's why I'm looking for an alternative.

Some of those are definitely interesting but might take some time to finish games if they're 4/x?

>> No.54076820

>>54076607
Well, Magister Sphinx is mandatory. Nuking your opponent's life is too good to ignore, and I'd also run tree of perdition if you can, because they're both fantastic together in multiplayer games. Inkwell Leviathan is a big stick that has island walk, and a lot of the decks you're going to want to beat down will run blue. Steel Hellkite is amazing if you're running a lot of rocks, because you can activate it's ability multiple times to clear the board, and zero cost things will instantly be destroyed. Those are probably your best bets out of what's listed just on their own.

A lot of the other things require particular set ups to be effective, and are less good in a vacuum. For example, Memnarch is disgusting if you have a glut of blue mana and/or sculpting steel, though I'm sure your familiar with it and Myr Battlesphere will alpha strike someone after flickering it 5 or 6 times, WITHOUT dealing combat damage. Gemini Engine is a bit more niche, more gruul/golgari, but it's fairly effective at what it does none the less.

As for blightsteel, cheat it out. If you're hardcasting it, you're doing it wrong. Kuldotha Forgemaster is usually the go-to card for cheating him out, but there are a ton of ways to get him on the field early. Mass polymorph is rather nifty if you run a lot of weenies because you can scoop them up, shit out a bunch of fatties from your deck, and cackle maniacally when your opponent doesn't understand what just hit them.

Now, if you want non-artifact game winners in esper colours, I'm particularly fond of Jin "the chin" Jan "the man" Gitaxias, depending on your control setup. Geth is also pretty powerful on his own if you manage to mill your opponent's goodstuff, and Havengul Lich is hilariously strong for what it does.

What's a good budget Commander to play in a semi competitive meta? People aren't throwing down Imperial seals and and the like but they still run pretty hard core decks like an Animar and karador.

I like pretty much any play style that isn't pillowfort or group hug and a deck that could build into other decks would be great, my budget is about $200 but I would prefer to only stay at around $150

>> No.54077557

With Animar and Karador you're not going to have much luck with Ruric Thar, which is what I usually recommend for friends on a budget, but you might get some use out of Lavinia of the Tenth, Brago, or Grand Arbiter Augustin IV. Maybe finding pieces that will work with all three.

There are no hard locks or anything, it's just a lot of removal, board wipes, draw, and counters. I make the game go long so by the time I'm ready to do some damage my opponents are often out of gas. They've used up and lost most of their cards and are either top decking or very low on resources. Their commanders have shown up and been killed a few times so they're prohibitively expensive to cast. I have a few discard spells like Mind Shatter/Twist to help make sure they can't really put up a fight later.

Once I'm in that position with a lot of cards in hand and a clear board, I move in. Just need something to finish the job more quickly and reliably. Using my Commander can work but it'd take a while and they have no built in protection. A Path to Exile or Pongify is all it'll take to set me back a few times and let them try to topdeck some answers, assuming I don't have multiple counters in hand. But a hexproof or indestructible creature to seal the deal would probably be a lot more useful

It's from the same era where lightning bolt was a common. Wizards wasn't afraid to print good cards, now they're too worried about "limited and standard environments" to print anything useful at lower than rare.

Take mind to how many colorless you run. In the case of Nin, you don't want to oversaturate your land count to colorless. Stick with 2 or 3 at most.

Also keep in mind of tap lands. Can you deck afford to slow down a turn? If not, try to limit yourself of tap lands to around 4 or 5. Go for taplands that naturally produce mana rather than stuff like Vivids (for more colored decks).

Yeah, and if the answer to one of those questions is obvious, why would you assume that was the question being asked? I was asking about what he actually plans to do after using Worldslayer, because that's the scenario that would prompt the question.

You have Scarab at all times, remember that. That's why I think a handful of lords and a Lazav-like everybody mills package would be nice. Unless of course everyone in your meta plays almost no creatures.

>>54083755
There used to be an anon around here with a Cromat spellslinger with all fuse/split cards, charms and multicolor spells suport.

I used to have a Child of Alara when dies/sac themed deck. It never took off because 5c manabases are giant clusterfucks.

Pic related, Worldslayer, etc.

She will never be good but you can make an impact if you focus on kneecapping your rivals. Her best wincon is Voltron, and ideally you make the board so fucking toxic that nothing else can stick. Managing to keep your hand ditched is important, and doing it while also getting good value is how to win.

Best of luck, you'll need it.

Still haven't seen a good follow-up plan for Hazoret and Worldslayer. There's a pretty significant chance she ends up becoming useless in a couple turns.

anyway i'm just about ready to kill myself with these fucking reanimator brews

literally "pick two" almost always

this brew is causing me a brain aneurysm. why can't it just work. i think i almost want to cut looters out entirely and just focus on cheating creatures straight into play from my hand or build my deck for hardcasting them. god fucking damnit

Yeah that's a terrible play.

Uba Mask, Omen Machine and Possesed Portal are the best things you can play with him as your general because you aren't hurt nearly as bad. Those artifacts are pretty good in mono red normally and synergize with Hazoret even more. It's definitely janky though.

well I mean Boros is Boros so being competitive at all is going to be tough.

Some pros and cons for flip avacyn
pro:
indestructible on a stick
flash
decent body
saves you from most boardwipes
can be repeated even if she dies for just a few extra mana each time.

cons
surprisingly bad for angel tribal whether or not she's the commander.
depending on how you want your deck to be (i.e voltron, creature swarm, etc) other commanders do it better.
her flip effect doesn't kill most things in edh by the time you'd probably flip her so it's kind of useless. not totally useless but for the most part you won't get too much value for it

>> No.54086653

Swinging into the red for 12 commander damage in the air is no joke and dropping a 6 damage board wipe is pretty slick too.
