My banding deck. Its using Avacyn, Angel of Hope right now but I'm actually working on converting it to Arahbo since his eminence ability would be pretty handy and green is a really useful color for the deck. I've considered trying out Naya as well but really its all just for funsies anyway since nobody around me even plays commander

It's like I want to build Meren, Titania, Ezuri Elfball, Newzuri, Patron, Feldon, Erebos, Hapetra, Bruna, Sydri, Kaalia, Sidisi/Damia reanimator, and Ayli all at once and I just don't have that kind of bank.

Wow no fucking shit. Play cards like bloodmoon and make them feel what its like to be controlled by red. Pack all your counterslots with pyroblast/reb and win with wincons like mycosynth and shatterstorm. If you wanted to get really cheeky you could win with grenzo, rogues passage, neheb, and aggrivated assault.

That's simply not true. Look at the Merfolk legends that give actual bonuses to Merfolk - Kopala, Kumena, UW Sygg.

Playing Thrasios as the commander of a Merfolk deck is like playing Vorel as the commander of a Merfolk deck. Yes, it's a Merfolk, but it doesn't give any Merfolk-specific bonuses - just giving random value.

Obviously Thrasios draws your deck with infinite mana, but if that's your main goal you shouldn't be filling your deck with Merfolk

>this merfolk isnt tribal because his ability isnt restricted to merfolk
Your arguement is akin to saying hes too good so he cant be tribal.

You pick a target to hit for 15 for Dinosaur and a target for 5 with Dragon. The one you kill for Dinosaur will deal it's power back to you, should you not die from the exchange, your life becomes 5 at the end of the turn.

>> No.57368003

Your life total becomes 15.
Then it becomes 5 at the end of your turn.
You can't be attacked by creatures without flying.
At the beginning of your upkeep, you get to choose which happens first: Form of the Dragon deals 5 damage to a creature or player, or Form of the Dinosaur deals 13 damage to something and it deals damage equal to its power back to you.
If you survive the turn, your life total becomes 5 again.

You might notice that you have a dangerously low life total from now on, so if your opponents engineer a situation where your only target left for Form of the Dinosaur is a 5 power or higher creature, you'll die.

Pulled a Necropotence from an Iconic Masters pack I received as a secret Santa present.

How do I use this in Gitrog Monster? I assume before the end step of the turn before me, I just play like 20-30 life to draw a shit ton of cards and into one of the “infinite” loops, then when I comes to discarding Dakmor Salavge that I Dredge Dakmor Salavage in response to the draw trigger caused by discarding it, which saves the land from Exile, correct? Or do I just need to remove it using enchantment removal before I go into a loop?

Just remember that even a "finished" deck continues to be a journey where you test out new packages, new cards, and consider new cards from new sets. Or just cards as you pick them up.

Not every idea has to be wildly unique and not every idea has to be fully functional, but there's a sweet spot in there that you'll find and love.

You are correct on how to save Dakmor Salvage from Necropotence's exile trigger. You are also correct in that you can just remove it. With older wordings it wasn't so obvious that the exile was a trigger thusly I leaned towards removal so I wouldn't have to argue that I can play around it ...

To land Skirge Familiar you can discard it and then respond to the trigger with Necromancy to drag it out of your grave. Same goes with Noxious Revival for other things you want to save from exile.

>when I comes to discarding Dakmor Salavge that I Dredge Dakmor Salavage in response to the draw trigger caused by discarding it, which saves the land from Exile, correct?
Yeah, I'm pretty sure that works. Necropotence is a triggered ability unlike e.g. Rest in Peace which is a replacement effect. Necropotence exile and Gitrog draw both trigger simultaneously when you discard a land, so stack the triggers to draw before exile and it should work. It might fuck with some loops though, I dunno I'm no Gitrog expert.

Sol Ring should be banned.

Now hear me out on this one. No, it isn't because of how strong it is. It's not that drawing it super early game gives you a pretty large head start.

No, Sol Ring should be banned because it limits creativity. 99.9% of decks run it. Only jank meme shit nobody plays has any reason to not use Sol Ring. Functionally, this means you are building a 98 card deck, rather than a 99 card deck. Because no matter what the fuck you're playing, Sol Ring is ALWAYS an include.
Mono color decks don't use it, so that's irrelevant. Sol Ring is the only card in the game that goes in EVERY deck, and for that reason it should not be legal.

Even if command tower were run in monocolored decks there's nothing wrong with cards that offer cheap mana IMO.

You know that one of the largest parts of it's ubiquity is it's price right? Crypt is a better card and would be in more decks if it was printed in every precon too. Same goes for lots of cards like Mana drain and more.

When you start using EDHREC stats you don't get to see what people would be playing if it wasn't for price, and you see stuff like counterspell being more popular than mana drain despite it's price.

So the question is, if Sol ring wasn't reprinted would you still want to ban it? Before the first commander decks were printed it was over $10 and pushing $15. By now it would be a $50 card at least without the reprint, and it would see as much play as mana crypt, who hit that price shortly after the EMA dip.

Are you pretending to be retarded? It's objectively the best card in the format, particularly if you're running anything that can tutor it, or colours that lack ramp.

>> No.57373341

I personally see nothing wrong with every deck being 98 cards + Sol Ring. Is it really limiting creativity when it's only one slot out of your entire 99? Hardly at all. It's just fuel to get things going. Every deck should have some amount of ramp, and Sol Ring is easy and affordable for every deck to run. There should be a standard ramp card for everyone to have access to. Most of the people who object to Sol Ring are spoiled by the ramp afforded to them either by green or by more expensive artifacts. Meanwhile colors with more problems with ramping, like W or R, get shit on by G unless they can shore up the difference with artifacts.

Let me break down a few things for you. It will always be removed. People will jump through elaborate hoops to remove it because everyone understands how strong it is.

While combo decks may use it, they're not who really wants it. Stax players want it because it's free. You can toss it down during your stax lock and create incremental advantage without paying mana. To be completely honest, Ashnods is way more likely to be in a "otk" deck than mana crypt.

And yes, I understand casual decks dont NEED crypt, but if they had it they would run it. If mana crypt was a dollar, every single deck would have it. Don't be stupid anon.

I tried. I won games consistently. Like 9 in a row. I expected an arms race to happen, or them to express SOME interest in how to stop me.

Know what happened? They basically threatened to all stop playing if I didn't play a different deck. I ended up having to sell my entire deck to keep the group together. They are maximum casual.

And then you can go to the next game quickly. It's almost like the fast game never happened.

>> No.57373814

It's statistically irrelevant. Sure, it happens, but you're implying two specific cards are in their opening hand AND they have a way to enable their wincon AND AND they aren't getting mana screwed by keeping a risky hand AND AND AND no one has a way to remove it. Yes it happens, no it doesn't happen very often for anyone to actually care about.

You're describing Storm, and storm isn't necessarily fast, and probably isn't something you're doing t3 unless you're more lucky than the previous poster. In fact, there's a $10k kess storm brew with abur duals in my meta that's hilarious at how inconsistent it is. Sure, he'll try to storm off, but if you let him, there's a 50/50 chance he's going to fizzle his attempt and immediately scoop. And that's a fully optimized cEDH deck.

Consistent decks you really need to worry about are stax decks. My stax/ramp deck is painfully consistent. My friend's stax deck has helm/rest in peace as a wincon, so it's even more consistent. But those decks rarely combo off quickly, and an explosive start is almost bad because it draws too much heat from lesser players, unless you have a lock piece in hand to shut out the table.

>> No.57373819

Do they run any answers or at least gun for the player in the lead? Or do they just continue durdling as if nothing is happening around them? If the latter, then they're too busying playing with themselves to think about the game as a whole. If the former, they need to be told what kinds of things to include in their decks so that they don't get ground into a fine pulp.

If your main game plan is getting a specific set of cards, you are playing solitaire, and guess what, a lot of competitive edh decks are like that, because the only fast way to win a game against 3 other players with 40 life each is through combo.

Other than that is what you said, stax, the unfun ultimatum, where no one plays mtg. If there are more than 1 guy playing stax, you might as well scoop and go to another table where people are willing to play mtg.

In the end, I can't find a scenario where people will just laugh with joy and begin a new game.

He talks about competitive but doesn't know shit about it. He thinks that you can only have an explosive hand with both mana crypt and sol ring, and that getting what you want is hard when you have like a dozen of ways to get the cards you want.

Without to mention that he thinks that stopping 3 other players is easy. In competitive games you are more worried about advancing your game than stopping others. You only carry enough removal to remove what your opponent has that can stop you.

>> No.57374234

You're STILL ignoring the rest of the post.

You don't understand what you're talking about, probably because you don't play in a competitive meta. Tutoring specific cards isn't solitaire, it's finding a wincon reasonably fast to end the game. Storm is literally playing solitare, you hit ad naus, draw a billion cards, and see if you can LED/Lotus Petal into a bunch of wheels, or refill your hand, then eventually hope you hit tendrils/mind's desire with enough mana to combo out, and that shit takes like 10 minutes because they need to play it out. Slapping out kiki-conscripts is fine. Would you get mad at a maelstrom wanderer deck with 97 lands and kiki-pestermite? If the answer is yes, you're more upset at the idea of combo than the concept you're describing.

Stax is actually incredibly fun to play against. The problem is when people set up a hard lock, then some faggot insists everyone play everything out, but the stax guy doesn't have a reliable wincon. If he tutors a reliable wincon, the staxlock is fine, the game is over quickly, and no one really cares. If his wincon is chip damage for a billion turns, like the game I lost against Zur due to commander damage, then you have a reasonable point. Stax isn't some mythical anti-fun thing, it's playing with symmetrical disadvantages against a deck designed to beat them. If the stax player can't break the lock, they aren't very good and have misplayed in the first place, which means someone else is going to win.

You need to stop taking magic so seriously, considering how bad you are at it.

>> No.57374288

Alright anon, put your money where your mouth is, because you don't know what you're talking about. In a real competitive game, everyone has removal. Everyone. If you aren't comboing off with counterspell back-up, you aren't comboing off at all.

Naw though.
Not him but there is plenty of nonblue shit you can do to protect combos, like veil of autumn, silence, and REB

>> No.57374461

Alright, I don't know that acronym.

Silence is top tier, I'll give you that, but you can counter silence if you're slick about it. You need to have the game in hand, and be able to win outright, while also having it in your hand, but it's good if your setup is there. I personally run one in my ghave deck.

Veil of Autumn is alright, but the protection is what makes it good. By preventing blue and black from targeting any of your spells, you're in pretty good shape, but there are a lot of artifacts that can stuff fuck up your day. Summary Dismissal still hits everything, as does cyclonic rift/nevrinyal's disk, but it's a pretty good card I'm going to consider running.

I'm surprised you didn't say Null Brooch. I used to just hold priority, activate null brooch when I'm out of gas, and laugh my way to the bank.

Solitaire =/= long plays
Solitaire means playing by yourself, storm decks are known for that, because they just take long ass turns where they just play by themselves and everyone just has to watch. But a lot of combo decks don't interact with other players, they just tutor what they need and try to combo off from there.

>Would you get mad at a maelstrom with 97 lands
I would be mad if my friend thought that a deck like that would be fun to play, either with or against. If he didn't want to play mtg, we could have said it instead. The problem isn't combo, it's playing a game where either you combo or scoop.

>> No.57374879

Null brooch and summary dismissal are too mana intensive for most competitive decks I have seen, I was just throwing out a bunch of really cheap answers, if start going expensive mana answers you can say shit like Lapse of certainty and more.

Also if someone counterspells your silence you are in a far better spot than if someone counterspells your own counter. Since then you still have the cards in hand that they would like to counter, and you know they have another counter in hand (or they tapped out and your free to go off barring force/pact)

Also there are a handful of silence clones now.

Not him, but it really depends on what kind of stax you want to build. You can build a sac, tap and tax deck, a discard stax deck, an wrath/mld stax , hatebears stax, etc.
It's important that you take advantage from destroying everything, recursion is one of the best ways to do that, this is why Meren works well as a stax commander.

If you are just using Meren with pact effects, it's more of a boardwipe deck than stax, this might be why you think that isn't really a stax deck, but you can turn it into a full-fledged stax deck by adding stax cards and more cards focused on recursion.

Depending on artifacts. I heard that Shu Yun eggs is pretty popular.
I would run Numot, because that's the only respectable choice. People might be cautious about it destroying lands, but hell, it's 6 mana and on swing 3 more to kill 2 lands.
People are more scared of the ability ans they don't pay attention to the costs or drawbacks, like with Memnarch being literal Hitler.
