Ad Nauseam Discussion

Hi! Great deck! Tough one for me!

What I like:

Your love of Ad Nauseam.

Good lord that curve is beauuuutiful.

Some suggestions to put in:

Noble Hierarch I'm sure you know about. Just an expensive upgrade :)

Protean Hulk could help fetch some of your combo creatures. Wacks your curve though.

Chromatic Lantern is necessary I feel for extra consistency.

And some to take out:

Avacyn's Pilgrim if you put in the Hierarch.

Carpet of Flowers may be here because you have a lot of blue player in the meta, but it seems like more of a sideboard card.

Otherwise... looks sweet. Hope some of this helps!

Storm in EDH is generally best achieved by casting an early Ad Nauseam drawing many cards ( having a low Cmc) and casting net positive mana rocks like Mana Crypt, Mox Diamond and the like. From there Paradox Engine and wheels can keep it going pretty well. One cool way to increase storm count is to play out your artifacts, cast Chain of Vapor and bounce them all, sacing lands, and then replay them.

Well, you can target Shaman with its own ability to get the triggers from Daru, or you could use Lightning Greaves to equip and unequip itself from Daru/Shaman, though you require another creature in play.

You could also sac the boosted creature to Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim, or Disciple of Griselbrand, you could also attack with the creature to kill a player and using Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper to gain life from that. You can then pour that into Aetherflux, Kuro, Pitlord, or Ad Nauseam

target Daru Spiritualist with Shaman en-Kor's ability infinite times to boost it's toughness to infinite then sac it to Miren, the Moaning Well/Diamond Valley. With infinte life, draw deck with Ad Nauseam and shot everyone with Aetherflux Reservoir. lol Not complicated at all right?

Any alternative for Fire Covenant?

Also, isnt Cyclonic Rift almost always a dead card early game primarily because it kind of attracts you to its overload cost? Any alternatives too in mind?

Lastly, any thoughts on Ad Nauseam?

Godhead_Initiated Leyline isn't as castable outside of your initial draw, but more importantly, this deck is running Ad Nauseam, which Leyline impacts a lot. So I'd rather be taking 3 less damage off of drawing my graveyard hate piece.

Only one issue with this concept: if you use Ad Nauseam to pick up the whole deck, you'll end up draining all your life. The card goes for converted mana cost, not just one life for every card. So Venser's journal won't save you.

So its a win condition of played right. You have Demonic Tutor and Vampiric Tutor so all you would need to add is Mystical Tutor and Dark Petition which are the cheap ones. If you have those in your deck you can plan to cast Ad Nauseam on turn 4 pretty much every game. You already have Aetherflux Reservoir and Sensei's Divining Top I would suggest adding Isochron Scepter and Dramatic Reversal and Laboratory Maniac as outlets to victory instead of Sanguine Bond and Exquisite Blood
