MTG Commander deck discussion: Mairsil the Pretender
« on: October 22, 2017, 07:01:05 PM »


I'm building a deck around the slow accumulation of semi-random abilities that eventually turn into engines. I like to think of it as playing Magic as a roguelike.

Do you have any pet cards that would be hilarious to see used here? I've got the obvious stuff that EDHRec and the common discussions would hit. I'm looking for the weird this time.

First thought? Shadowmoor & Eventide had Untap abilities, just pile on a bunch of tap & untap effects for the perfect amount of Commander randomness.

Second thought? Shauku Endbringer should be one of those tap effects, or just google Necrotic Ooze decks.

Would you die if you jumped from my perceived ego to your IQ? - Is 15secs of confirmation bias a goal post worth arguing for? - Ever asked a "victim" what they did to deserve it? - Are the words teen, SJW, & liberal synonyms? - "Only Sith deals in absolutes" contains a misspelled word.

Shauku is in, as is the best untapper (Hateflayer). I also run things like Morphling, Torchling, Aetherling...Necrotic Ooze decks are pretty much where I'm starting from.
