AlwaysSleepy on Oona: Queen of the Storm

This list was made more for combating the really fast or aggressive decks in the format or speed right under stax. For an idea of the meta this is designed for, take a look at decks like Jeleva Slim, Zur Doomsday, Food Chain Tazri, Breakfast Hulk, or Tana and Tymna Stax. Traditional control in EDH doesn't work nearly as well as 1v1 since holding down 3 players from going off is very difficult, and if you are slow, then someone is much more likely to find an opening and combo off to win before you get to do anything. Heavy removal against these decks is either blanked or often too slow if they have already set up, minus the efficient wipes like Deluge or Rolling Earthquake.

Hence, I built this list to be very fast and aggressive, trying to just end the game as quickly as possible. The storm capability of the deck is more what you do when you can't immediately find the infinite combo: storm off and look for it. If you want to add Fishtank, then by all means do so.

UB cannot really play a great stax game, which is a more viable control approach. There are 2 commanders which play a decent control game in the more "draw-go" sense: Rashmi and Tasigur, but that's because they recur cards for you and generate card advantage to offset the disadvantage of playing control. Trading 1 for 1 in EDH is not the best plan against other unfair combo decks since every time you stop 1 person 2 other people have an easier chance of going off (as opposed to 1v1, where it's a good strategy since you deplete only 1 person of resources).

Thanks for the response, Here's another question. Does this deck gain you a lot of hate? Like how often do you find people are hesitant to play with you? I love milling, I'm actually slightly afraid that I may alienate myself from play groups though.

Honestly modern is a format I want to get into, but one that I've barely played. Most my friends throw whatever they feel like into their decks so I look forward to something more restricted. I usually check if the cards are legal before cycling the deck. I'll have to rethink what cards to use for these slots. Thanks for the info.

Yahenni, Undying Partisan is powerful, especially with so many 1/1's, similarly with Ashnod's Altar. Nim Deathmantle is a must have in these kinds of decks. Swiftfoot Boots and Lightning Greaves are great with such a the big commander that wants to swing out. Whenever you run blood artist, consider Zulaport Cutthroat

Tk4890 on Reserved List?

My thoughts on your topic: Will you get enjoyment out of having these cards? Are you in a good enough financial place to feasibly not be strongly impacted by the loss of these cards due to any sort of disaster? Will you, or can you imagine yourself, regretting your decision to purchase these cards in the future? If you couldn't answer yes, yes, yes! to these questions (excepting of course, the last one, which should be no, no, no!), I would strongly reconsider purchasing them.

Alos, revised list cards cannot have functional reprints; to quote their official policy: "Reserved cards will never be printed again in a functionally identical form. A card is considered functionally identical to another card if it has the same card type, subtypes, abilities, mana cost, power, and toughness."Source: http://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/official-reprint-policy-2010-03-10 (Sorry, couldn't get the link to work)

wait no grafted exoskeleton, cavern of souls, or green suns zenith? Not too sure about your bold move with no land tax as i'm sure it can lead to a CATastrophe? also how/why do you only have 99 cards (at time of this post)

narshol: You might need more removal, then. I ran Molten Disaster for a while, which might help you :) You could also try something like Reality Shift if it's a problem, or more counterspells.

But honestly I'm willing to take 1 damage per card. I'm certain I can find removal before I die to it, heh.

Alright. I'd need this much then:

3x Inkmoth Nexus

2x Arcbound Ravager

3x Steel Overseer

2x Master of Etherium

1x Blood Moon (if you have any)

1x Blinkmoth Nexus

2x Etched Champion

1x Springleaf Drum

3x Spire of Industry (if you have any)

4x Galvanic Blast

2x Ghirapur Aether Grid (if you have any)

2x Ancient Grudge (if you have any)

2x Rest in Peace (if you have any)

2x Grafdigger's Cage (if you have any)

2x Whipflare (if you have any)

How much cash would you want for all this? Also, what's your entire list of cards you're looking for? I have a lot of stuff that's not listed.

Azergyzhoul Eater of the Dead is definitely Phenax's best friend if you've got Lightning Greaves handy and are ready to end the game. Consuming Aberration and Tree of Perdition can both rip out massive chunks of library and life alike. Duskmantle Guildmage can also edge people out quite well once the opening presents itself. Also sometimes the wincon is just their wincon with reanimation cards.

With Griselbrand's looting affect it may be advantageous to add in Expedite's over the Lightning Axe's. Even a Fury of the Horde combo could be sick in this deck...just a thought, probably too janky to work though...

This deck see as pretty cool and could get out of hand quickly. One thing I think this deck should have is more ways for Kresh the Bloodbraided to get through and more creature removal. I feel like this deck could kill you easily with commander damage.

Berniandthewhale Thanks! I'm glad you like it! It's crazy because it so far from the type of deck I usually play. I despise control, I'm an aggro guy but there's something I love about this deck. I don't play it really ever because it's 0 fun for the opp, but its really fun to think about

Redshadow09 on Everything Combos

seeking as a person that played Meren of clan Nel Toth deck right out of the box I loved her deck from the start and seeing what you have here I think its pretty solid and I like. But the one tiny thing that I wish I could see in this deck is token explosion and yes I see Nath of the Gilt-Leaf is in there and even though he is good I feel like I am not getting the amount of tokens that I want from him it requires my opponent to mill his hand to get creature but what is to say that I am going up someone that has anything BUT creatures. I genualy think if you agree with me to put in mycoloth + bloodspore thrinax + korozda guildmage and since you have Mazirek,kraul death priest the strategy works trust me I had over 50 Saprolings at a time each getting beefed up by one another with mazirek and bloodspore thrinax and Korozda. also having liliana the last hope would be an added bonus. Other than that great deck

Hey, cool deck idea! It looks like Souls of the Faultless might be a nice addition, especially with Athreos as your commander.

VraskaTheCursed on Priority regarding casting and activating ...

57 minutes ago

Your response was correct, and for the correct reason. Just a detail - the stack doesn't resolve, individual items on the stack resolve. Once the last item on the stack resolves (aka the first item to be put on the stack), then the active player gets priority. Anyways, it wouldn't matter either way, because if your opponent cast an instant like Dissenter's Deliverance (basically anything but split second spells like Krosan Grip), you could use Key to the City's activated ability once you got priority again, in response.

VraskaTheCursed on Ice Cauldron

The cauldron's first ability states that you can "cast that card as long as it remains exiled." Basically, this means that when you do decide to cast it, it goes on the stack and then into the graveyard as do all other spells you cast from your hand. Once it moves out of exile and onto the stack, you can't cast it with the cauldron anymore.

TL;DR: No, because once you cast the exiled spell once, it moves out of exile.

Hey fellow Omnath player!

Maybe consider the following: Azusa, Lost but Seeking, Lotus Cobra, Ramunap Excavator, Crucible of Worlds, Nissa, Vital Force, Greater Good, Perilous Forays, Burgeoning and Exploration. Just to name some options that'll perform well in this build. Here is my adaption of an Omnath build:

Id say in Rakdos colors, the most compact Nooze combo would be Necrotic Ooze+ Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Mogg Fanatic + any haste enabler (I'd probably run Angersince it is pretty easy to dump it with wheels and the likes). To be honest though, I don't know any other Nooze combo in Rakdos colors, but I am not sure it could get much more compact than this...

This one can be tutored by Buried Alive alone, and even without any haste outlet it could let you win the following turn (given no removal). Considering all the cards from the combo separately, Mogg Fanatic would not be dead since it allows you to cast your commander and you can cast it and then sac it to put it in the graveyard. Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breakeris never dead since it can always generate value from any ETB effect at least, but I am sure we can get value from it in this deck. Overall, I think this is the most compact/efficient Noze package available in BR.

Burlane421 on Spell Slingin'

just a couple of suggestions maybe good maybe not Bloodwater Entity can get your instants back to cast again and your not worried if they take it out. Hungry Flames takes a creature out and does damage to your opponent as well as triggering prowess and your alchemist and archers. love the deck +1 from me.

Check out Driving force which also happened to also be my first deck. I would drop to 22 or 23 lands because of how low most of your cards' mana cost is. I would consider getting 1 copy of Desert of the True and and one copy of Desert of the Fervent in place of a plains and mountain. The deck looks great

Liliana Vess would be a great addition. I actually need to update the deck a bit. I just tweaked it a bit and got the land count up to 37 from 33. 33 lands for a tri color heavy costing commander was just not cutting it.

ACDAMAN on ironwood anthem

+1, love the concept! I'd try using a few more creatures with higher toughness (like walls) in order to kill other creatures quicker.

A few ideas; Sultai Flayer; Indomitable Ancients; Meandering Towershell; Grizzled Leotau; and Wall of Junk (not sure if it's legal, but it works)

Tower Defense could also be a really fun card, essentially giving your creatures +5/+5 until end of turn for only 2 mana!
