/u/bboomslang on How to Build a 5-Color Mana Base?

Well, that is what I do 😉 – usually I run basics of my core interaction colors. Like Golos, my removal is in Esper, it can handle Blood Moon, so I want those as basics to make sure I can still function under a blood moon or back to basics. The purely …

/u/bboomslang on How to Build a 5-Color Mana Base?

You look at the Distribution of colored pips – most 5c lists are actually 3 or 4c lists with splashes. For example my Golos Hulk list is Esper centered with a heavy green and only very small red splash. So no RG Duals or shocks and the fetches are cent…

/u/bboomslang on [MYB] You’re in Command

But Mulldrifter is mono-u and the spell is white, so making Mulldrifter your Commander instantly makes your Deck illegal and you are DQed 😉

I want to play that in my Niv deck. Please tell me it is UR. 🙂

Oversized reprints of commander staples that you can only use as coasters. It’s big!

/u/bboomslang on Elsha of the Infinite — alternatives to artifact storm?

My Elsha runs Helm combo – [[Helm of the Host]] on either [[Godo, Bandit Warlord]] or [[Aurelia, the War Leader]]. So I went with an equipment deck, running all the Jeskai tutors for equipments, including some nice equipments that can go on everybody f…

/u/bboomslang on What is the most valuable/expensive card currently in your collection that is NOT on the reserved list?

My Harper Promo Mana Crypt. But I would be more happy if it wasn‘t that expensive, because I would like more of them in other decks, too. But due to price, only my competitive decks get the treatment.

/u/bboomslang on What EDH pet theme have you tried and tried again to build but keep coming up short?

Helm of the Host is a neat addition from a while ago, because we now have two solid infinite combat combos.

that’s the key to my deck: it is trying to assemble the Godo+Helm or Aurelia+Helm combo. Balan doesn’t combo.

/u/bboomslang on What EDH pet theme have you tried and tried again to build but keep coming up short?

Well, [[Puresteel Paladin]] , [[Brass Squire]] and [[Auriok Windwalker]] give me that, too, allthough the Squire and the Windwalker sadly need to tap to do it. And [[Hammer of Nazahn]] does it even better. Balan has the problem, that he is greedy and g…

/u/bboomslang on What EDH pet theme have you tried and tried again to build but keep coming up short?

Nah, that would be Knight Tribal, not Equipment Wins. As said, I go for infinite combat combo, so Godo+Helm or Aurelia+Helm or Sword of FaF+Aggravated Assault. I really want to keep my sunforger package able to counter stuff, which requires blue. So it’s Kykar for now, or maybe Elsha – no mana accellaration from her, but card advantage from the top of your library, and more reactive play for equipment might make it worthwhile, allthough equip is hard to get instant speed reliably. So I am not that sure I actually would profit from her enough to make it worth to go up one mana in cost and lose the accellaration.

Another thing that Mardu loses, aside from counterspells for Sunforger, would be all the great artifact tutors in blue. Sure, white has it’s set of tutors, too, but Whirr of Invention and Reshape are just too good, as is Tezzeret the Seeker (he can give mana or tutor equipment, whatever is needed). Even if I don’t go for Helm all the time, Argentum Armor is something we like to find, too, and throwing it on a spirit can be fun, too 😉

I just feel that Mardu is inferior to Jeskai when it comes to artifact based themes.

/u/bboomslang on What EDH pet theme have you tried and tried again to build but keep coming up short?

[[Sunforger]] is so much more fun if it can also tutor up draw spells or counterspells, though – that’s why I love me some blue in my lists. UR and UW have so much fun instant speed stuff to sunforger up. [[Vanish into memory]] can be so spicy.

/u/bboomslang on What EDH pet theme have you tried and tried again to build but keep coming up short?

Equipment matters – I tried it a few times, but always it turned into bad voltron. The equip cost needs mana, but removal from opponents nullifies that. So you need more mana, keeping protection up. Add to that you are usually in some sans-green deck, …

/u/bboomslang on How would you "fix" your pet commander?

She doesn‘t really NEED fixing, but man would I love if Jhoira WC had Jeskai colors. Adding some taxing or Stax elements from white would make her so much better. Elsha comes very close, but that one Mana more in her costs is painful. Essentially I jus…

/u/bboomslang on Casual EDH for a cEDH player

I forfeit tutors completely and replace with digging power or draw power – that way the results are less of a given, but will still show up. You just need to up the count of Wincons, as you can‘t go straight for a single one. So in green you use all th…

/u/bboomslang on What dollar value card would you NOT want to risk shuffling in your deck?

I recently brought my full power Jhoira WC Deck and lend it out to one of our Pod. He was —very— careful 😉 – but no, no limit for me. If I had a Timetwister, it would be in that deck, price be damned. I usually buy beaten upwards when it comes to very…

I only ever got one of them, a bit sad about that, because I love them for double sleeved oathbreaker decks or single sleeved 75. But I can‘t find them anywhere anymore.

/u/bboomslang on Which new cards from ELD are good enough to fit in Urza?

Well, we are in cedh here and we should know about Blood Moon and especially Back to Basics, making our „strictly better“ islands very sad cards. If your deck needs time against fast combo, you go Stax and if you face greedy Hulk Combo lists, you go Ba…

Essentially another Bloom Tender, just one more mana in the cost and more complex color requirements. Could still be interesting, at least in singleton formats.
