I have a Feldon deck that I'm trying to tune up. Recently trimmed some of the fat and got the land count up to something a bit more respectable(used to be at 33, super dodgy), but it's still not where I'd like it to be. Suggestions appreciated, the deck is my baby and I want to see it able to keep up a bit better in my metas.

Ok, Sylvan Library is oddly worded. Here's what happens.

During your draw step, you draw two extra cards. You then select 2 cards from among those that you have drawn this turn and put them back in any order, unless you pay 4 life a card to keep them.

Note: you can put back cards you didn't draw with Library but already drew this turn (say, from a Phyrexian Arena or Staff of Nin). This isn't super useful, but it's come up in my games before and been handy, so its worth you knowing about it.

Never thought about stax with gitrog I just play mine like golgari landfall. How does it work

>> No.56461709

>>56461582
Pretty well, for a casual circle. Stax is decently commander independent, though it works WELL with Gitrog (Since I can sac my lands and draw fresh, including potentially dredging back and replaying Dakmor) on the field I can do a lot of damage to the board even while the frog is dead. The big weakness is that I NEED either a crucible effect or Loam. It got a lot more comfortable with Ramunap, who can be found by a few extra tutors compared to Crucible and Loam (which basically needed unrestricted tutoring in black/green) and is a little easier to recur than crucible.

For being horrible jank normally, Tainted Aether is a fucking all-star. A lot of decks lose their mind when I've got forced-sac running and they can't gain +permanents from dropping creatures. But I'm drawing cards and if I really need to throw dudes down without losing my land I can feed Tainted to the Smokestack.

I'm not gonna lie and say it'll hold up to competitive pressure but it's a nice low-power execution of Stax principles.

Obviously you want lots of draw and a low curve so you can reliably play out your program. You don't want a lot of responses since a straight counterspell could really gum you up, so pick versatile counters like Cryptic and Mystic Confluence. You can't use anything hand based but that means you never have to discard. Of course you can't discard but that's neither here nor there. You want ruthless efficency rather than "Gotcha" effects since your hand is going to be revealed, removing any element of surprise.

While looting and self mill is nice, I have found in Kess that you want to be taking full advantage of her ability and casting each spell twice whenever possible. I would also conisder cutting torment of hailfire since you are not running the cabal coffers + urborg meme. Like Torment for 3 or 4 is nice but torment for 10 gets you the win basically.

Depending on how averse you are to taking extra turns as well, that could be an option for additions.

One is an outlet for infinite mana and also grinds card advantage (and has a fat butt, and doesn't care if it comes in tapped)
The other allows even more card advantage while not losing life to do so, and making use of the combat step in a format where the combat step isn't as utilized (cEDH).
Both together makes a deck that grinds CA better than devoted combo, maintains life totals to avoid getting aggro'd (rare but there), and can outgrow stax if piloted properly. Only things left to beat it are things that can race it.

So I'm looking at spending up to ~$150 on a new deck. Who do I pick?

I already have most of the mana base for Oona, so the remaining costs would be in artifact ramp and board wipes. I'm currently lacking Rakdos fixing for Marchesa. The deck may also require a few pricey creatures and reanimate spells, as well as some of the stronger red board wipes that can't legally be included in Oona. Kess I'm still looking into.

Both Marchesa and Kess would involve buying the wizard precon for parts.

Kess is really fun to play, but the deck sort of relies on its commander.

It works casually as a spellslinger deck and competitively as a storm deck.

So I've never played EDH before outside of borrowing a deck from someone a couple of times. I ordered the cards for a Scion of the Ur-Dragon deck, because I love dragons and tutors. Anyone who can give me any advice on how to play that deck properly? I imagine that in a multiplayer game, a deck like that which can kill a player instantly in an attack without much trouble is gonna cause people to focus me, or at least my general, a lot. Besides cards like Asceticism and Lightning Greaves, how do you play a deck like this politically? I don't think I can fool people into thinking I'm not a threat after the first time I use Moltensteel into Skithiryx stack shenanigans or whatever.

I enjoy playing Scion of the Ur-Dragon, but my version is one that doesn't care much for politics. I ramp into scion and start screwing with whoever else has the best boardstate as soon as possible.

You can run punisher dragons(Keiga the Tide Star and Destructor Dragon are my personal favorites) to screw with people removing your general. There's also Silumgar the Drifting Death to give him hexproof temporarily.

Scroll rack is a good card.

You need ways to recycle your dragons. One way is to run Wheel of Sun and Moon so you can keep turning Scion into the same dragons over and over.

Or, you can do what I do, which is run a bunch of reanimator spells, chief among them being Living Death, which wipes the board and brings all your big stompy dragons back to the field. If I have it in hand, I start searching in other peoples' end steps so that I have Dragonlord Dromoka, Bladewing the Risen, Dragonlord Kolaghan, and Dragonlord Atarka in the bin at the very least when it goes off. That way, I get Scion back to the board and all my dragons have haste and double strike, and nobody can cast anything on my turn.

There are other dragon-based combos to consider; Ophidian Eye + Niv-Mizzet the Firemind allows you to deal 40 damage to two players; usually enough to kill two players and set up Living Death for the next turn.

What would you be using to make Ulamog or your opponents creatures into Killbots?

...That said, if you do have a way to make your opponents creatures count as Killbots, you don't even need the betrayal effect, since it doesn't specify which side of the battlefield.

Thanks for the advice.

>>56479347

People actually run Hermit Druid decks? Yeah, I can see why that might draw some ire. I kinda thought those were more of a thought experiment.

>>56479523

That's definitely one way to go about it, though it seems like you'd rely on surviving for a long time that way, no?

>>56479541

The version I ended up building is, I guess, sort of cutthroat - due to normally playing Modern and Legacy, I already owned most of the big ticket items, so I just got stuff like the dragons, some reanimator spells like the Living Death you mentioned and Patriarch's Bidding, and various Commander-specific stuff. I also got some things like Collective Restraint to make people less willing to attack me, though I don't know how effective that's gonna be. To be honest, I absolutely suck at the social dynamics of multiplayer, so not doing too much of that is sort of appealing.

Question: Is Tabernacle any good in EDH, or do people just run it to show off their super-expensive decks? I already own it due to playing Lands in Legacy, but from what I've seen looking over some EDH games, people seem to tend to have far more lands than they do creatures, unless they're specifically running some token strategy. I figure that if it's a really good card that's just not being run due to price, then maybe I should put it in - but if it's just something people run to show off, there isn't any reason to really bother.

>> No.56479655

>>56479611

>> No.56479959

>>56479653
Tabernacle is playable, especially in stax decks that tax out their opponents' mana so that they can't pay the cost for Tabernacle.

Some commanders are good for politics. Scion is not. There are very few ways to avoid stepping on toes, and they don't advance your victory very well.

in the early turns, play just some ramp and removal spells, so your board isnt too scary, and you're controlling the board which helps everybody at the table feel more secure

then start doing the dragons, and never blow your whole hand. always play each turn with the thought in mind "what would i do next turn if they kill my commander or board wipe"

Discard their hand(nicol bolas, crosis the purger), destroy their lands(numot the devastator), wipe their board(balefire dragon), make it impossible for them to interact with you on your turn(dragonlord dromoka). Take away their precious mana rocks(hellkite tyrant) and use them to hardcast big meaty dragons.

Fill your board up super quickly by reanimating all the dragons you tutor up(teneb the harvester + bladewing the risen, animate dead / reanimate / necromancy) and just get obscene value(The Ur-dragon, Intet the Dreamer, utvara hellkite). Play cards that restrict opponents in how they attack you(crawlspace, ghostly prison / propaganda), in case the game goes long.

Also, you can protect your commander pretty easily. Clout of the Dominus, Lightning Greaves, Swiftfoot Boots, Aspect of the Dominus. Or, just run counterspells like, well, OG Counterspell, Negate, and Disallow.

Ramp spells help you fix your colors. Combined with a good mana base(focus primarily on g/x dual lands and fetches), you should be fine to cast whatever you want. Skyshroud Claim, Ranger's Path, Hunting Wilds, Farseek, and Nature's Lore are all good.

balance is the 3rd most played white card in vintage, after monastery mentor and swords to plowshares. it is played in 6.9% of vintage decks on mtgtop8 tournament results

card is incredibly broken, it is insanely easy to destroy the whole table in one huge blowout. in edh you can play a super low land count artifact deck that wins tons of games with land destruction + artifact mana, that deck can use cards like devastation, armageddon, and sunder to good effect. now think of how much better balance is compared to any of those cards. balance lets you wipe both permanents and hands from the whole table, leaving people with neither mana nor spells

if you can cast it with 3+ artifact mana in play and any form of incremental value in play or in hand, its very difficult to lose from that position, but even if your opponents rebuild there's no reason you cant return balance to your hand and cast it again, you have to think about that kind of thing when youre going to unban a card, its not just going to be played once per game

also balance is way, wayyyyy more suited to edh than to vintage

in edh you have multiple opponents, which instantly doubles or triples the value you get from it, and there are also more people playing creatures and more people ramping their land count

just imagine trying to beat balance from the perspective of a green creature overrun deck, absolutely impossible, with a 2 mana spell you cant counter they can get all your creatures, most of your lands, and also most of your hand, which means normal green ways of beating board wipes wont work, you wont have the mana to recur a lot from your yard, and you wont be able to keep a constant full hand of creatures to rebuild with because they made you discard them

there are few decks like that in vintage, that get hard countered by balance, generally because cards like balance exist in vintage

Foil peel alterer here. It's doable but keep in mind that the new arts on cards post 2015 are a little bigger than the ones from the previous blog, so you'll probably have some white border inside the actual card, which may look incredibly good or incredibly bad.
