I'm building yahenni commander right now, and could use some suggestions for space and cards to explore. If you have the time, do you think you could offer any suggestions?
Absolutely! I’ve been toying with a Yahenni decklist recently, so this is perfect!
Free counters for Yahenni on your turn, clears the way for them to get in for damage, and has no risk of making you sac our favorite aetherborn because of the vampire synergy!
For each creature your opponents control that dies, that’s three counters on Yahenni instead of one! Not to mention you get two counters for sacking your own creatures in addition to the indestructible grant.
This doesn’t have to be Damnation, it can be any number of black sweepers that Yahenni can survive by sacrificing a creature that’s going to die anyways. You’ll likely get a ton of counters on them from all the opponents’ dying creatures, and Yahenni will be left to get in there for potentially lethal Commander damage.
Yahenni has a built-in sac-outlet. Turn every sacrifice into three opposing creature deaths and three counters for the Undying Partisan! See also, Butcher of Malakir and Grave Pact.
Provides a near endless stream of tokens for Yahenni’s benefit and plays exceptionally well with Dictate of Erebos and similar cards.
welcome to this weekly deck tech! This week we come back to Standard for a very
exciting deck! To be honest, when Kaladesh came out I was hesitating between a
few decks and this one was in my final top 2; I opted with Storm Colossus, but
Panharmonicon is such a sweet card that is so much fun to play! Let’s dive into
it, you’ll understand just how awesome this deck is.
jukebox makes so that anytime a creature or artifact triggers because of an ETB
(enter the battlefield) effect, add another trigger. You might be thiking ‘’but
B-P, that doesn’t seem too strong’’ and you couldn’t be more wrong, you fool.
This deck abuses all those magnificient ETB effects to generate insane amount
of value! I’m very sad though that Reflector Mage just got banned since, even
by being pretty good in other decks, was absolutely NUTS in this deck! Imagine
bouncing 2 or 3 creatures for 3cmc and they can’t cast any of those back!
you have a magic music box that doubles your trigger, why not make sure you get
those sweet sweet triggers over & over again? Eldrazi Displacer makes this
deck pretty close to broken if you can get the ball rolling. A Displacer that’s
not dealt with right away will win you the game, for sure. Now it’s a bit less
broken since Reflector Mage is banned, but good lord was that a nice card
synergy. Also, you want lands that can produce colourless mana, so stuff like Holdout Settlement & Aether Hub are usually perfect since they’re versatile.
dis what makes the deck go over the top. Being a 3 card combo really helps. You
got a Displacer & a Panharmonicon on the board and you can go infinite with
it. Granted, you don’t have any X spells to burn your opponent, but you can
easily chain some spells to scour through your library and win from there; at
the very least you can keep all of your opponent’s stuff tapped at all time.
self explanatory; you get to bounce Thought-Knot Seer over & over again to
exile 2-3 cards from their hands each time. It gets absurd very fast and it’s
also a nice beater so, win-win!
The days of
Reflector Mage are over, sadly, but you still have access to this nice
temporary exile effect. The deck does go from 8 removal creatures to 4, so it hurts
quite a bit. I actually hope with all my heart that wotc unbans Reflector Mage
next update because this deck won’t be the same without it, at least not AS
good. Instead of Reflector Mage you can always play some Pilgrim’s Eye to keep
your mana steady and as a chump-blocker.
puppy always ehre to help! In this deck you can easily keep your life at a nice
place by gaining 2, 4 or even 6 life over & over & over…Also, if it
happens to die by chumping you get to draw a card so that’s always neat!
to robo-puppy, you get this magnificient value engine. If you have a couple of
Panharmonicon on the board and you’re able to blink this card a few times you
will out-value ANY opponent! Drawing TONS of cards and gaining you a butt-load
of life. This is one of my favourite cards from Kaladesh (just after
have one of my favourite cards from Aether Revolt (if not my favourite). While
the set was pretty underwhelming for my personaly preferences, Spire Patrol is
just soooo good tempo wise in my eyes. If only Reflector Mage was not banned in
standard we could see amazing plays such as Turn 3 : R. Mage, Turn 4 :
S. Patrol, Turn 5 : CBlazer; at that point your opponent is completely
tempo-ed out, especially if you got a Panharmonicon on the board. This card
just fits SO SO SO well in the deck, and if ONLY Reflector Mage was legal this
deck would be completely INSANE right now…
Go Big or
talked about this deck as a WU build, you can go wild if you wish and aim at a
5-colour deck. I personally think it’s less good since i twill often be less
constant and smooth, but to each their own. By playing 5 colours you can play
some Prophetic Prism or Servant of the Conduit to fix your mana and get some
more ETB effects. As a payoff, instead of Drowner of Hope, the deck will play
Noxious Gearhulk to kill all possible threats, as well as some Verdurous
Gearhulk to bash in for quite a lot of damage. Oh and you can play some
Combustile gearhulk & Cataclysmic Gearhulk, just because you can. While
5-colour deck is pretty fun, it’s a bit less consistant than the UW version
which puts out better result. It will be interesting to monitor the deck and
see how it does without Reflector Mage. I won’t lie, the banning hurt the deck,
quite a bit, but I don’t think the deck is dead because of it. Also, if you
play just for fun and don’t care about the bannings, this deck is exactly what
you need; it’s janky and is very very good!
have it! I hope you guys enjoyed this deck tech. If I missed anything, let me
know. I’ll see you guys next week for a Modern deck tech!
Everyone loves more mana. Being able to turn each little creature into a Birds of Paradise is pretty great by any standards. This of course goes best in creature token decks, but even if you’re just a little bit on theme, this can really help you boost your way into ramping really quick. Works best with some haste or even something like Thousand-year Elixir, but that goes without saying. Just a good enchantment overall, despite it’s reliance on having creatures on the board.
Spent all day last night playing EDH at my LGS so I toally whiffed on posting a card. Will post two tonight, this is ½!
The longer Magic the Gathering goes on, the more planeswalkers are going to be printed, it’s as simple as that. This little tutor may not be expensive price wise or mana cost wise, but it’s super useful to have when you need it.. Superfriends decks, particularly ones like Narset, Atraxa and others are more than happy to dig out whatever planeswalker they want. The more planeswalkers are made, the more useful this card will be, so as long as you’re running white and have multiple walkers to choose from, this card could always be considered when you need a silver bullet.
