Bazaar Trader forget the artifact theme,

Act of Treason Threaten Dominus of Fealty Perplexing Chimera

Use the trader to turn your one-off steal spells into more permanent appropriation, and to throw those Bombshells at your opponent, might as well toss in a Rust Elemental too.

switcharoo is nice, as is Steel Golem Goblin Electromancer and Cloud Key , as are the counters (though Counterflux beats Double Negative six ways to Sunday. Seriously, what where they thinking when they printed that?)

I prefer Cyclonic Rift to Mizzium Mortars , but that's just me

mainboard Puca's Mischief

cut everything else ('specially those Urza lands)

And I took out Act of Treason , put in Treachery , Insurrection just costs too much to me, had melek in and didn't like the way it played. Goblin Electromancer just didn't help the deck all that much. It helped for maybe 1 or 2 turns and then the mana was irrelevant.

You need to re-read Electropotence - "Whenever a creature enters....", under the new rules, this means that Nightcrawler enters as a 0/0, it is not until its Bestow/activated ability triggers that it gets anything. I think you are limiting the format too much trying to use a more current block. It is EDH, not standard.

I do like some of your ideas from the current set, like Fated Return , that with Kresh on-field, would lend to some good recursion. But you need to focus on mass and spot removal after Kresh is on the field AND indestructible.

While Ratchet Bomb has been used to good service in some decks, in Kresh, any visible removal sources will be targeted immediately. You could replace Act of Treason with Anger and get ten times the boom for your few bucks. Clan Defiance - great addition! Creeping Corrosion you would be better with Diabolic Tutor . That gives you more fetch, and to replace the artifact killer Hull Breach .

I could go on, but I sound like I am being a bit too harsh in my observations. Maybe it's better if you check out my Kresh, it's got a 75-85% win ratio, I need to overhaul mine within the new block, but I am seriously considering moving to Kaervek the Merciless as a General I need the green in Mayael the Anima .

My deck as shown has already been rebuilt and I need to post V2. But your should be able to see it at Kresh Krasher . It's not so much the expensive cards I want you to see, but the mechanics. Kresh has a nasty habit of wanting to kill everything when he is indestructible. I had a game once, a six person pod. Once he hadDarksteel Plate , I let the destruction begin. Add what others were doing, since they could not reach him, he would up in one wheel at 60 points, and on that turn (something I have removed and putting back Overwhelming Stampede . 120 points of indestructible Trample, go ahead, DIE.

Whether your play group is a speed EDH or not is your biggest decision. Your closer to the speed of a standard deck, and you might get top-decked that way in EDH, a lot. The mana curve and tempo is critical, but not as much when you only have 60 to play with.

Hope this helps. Keep at it!

loosemagoose0 yes, I realised that haha. Bone Splinters has owned its place, it's pretty good considering that I almost always have some 1/1 or 0/1 token that it's just there; I will swap for something else though. Act of Treason is there to be a Slave of Bolas for only 3 mana, I don't think it's necessary to have it instant speed for an extra of one or two manas.

Vicious Shadows is one of the best red cards in edh and maybe the best 7 mana spell in the format. Swap Bone Splinters for it and swap Act of Treason with an instant speed creature steal like Act of Aggression or Grab the Reins or Word of Seizing .

emask Thanks! I actually got a burn deck that's built around using Act of Treason , Traitorous Blood , etc and then Fling ing them for extra damage/removal. I don't think that I want to necessarily add more of those cards here, though. I just want something to pump up Scourge of Skola Vale . Might choose to lose Mage Slayer for more burn though. shrug

RDW Creatures: : Pretty easy matchup, only way i lose is if I don't get my statistical draw kill spells; -4 Duress ; 3 Bile Blight , 1 Doom Blade .

Optional swap out = -3 Nightveil Specter , 3 Herald of Torment ; I like taking cards, so thank you for your Master of Waves / Bident of Thassa .

To the above RDW deck one of the side ins is suppose to be 2 Pack Rat as you see double Bile Blight . also, make sure you have 2 mana open at all times with desecration demon on the board, Act of Treason can ruin you finally overcoming the board state, devour flesh yourself, and whip that demon back in the next turn.
