I would keep 10 sources of land-ramp (i.e. Rampant Growth: getting lands into play is more reliable in the long run as people tend to blow the world up every 2-3 turns in my playgroup). Keep these at most 3 mana to ensure a Xenagos turn 4. After that, I'd look for 7-8 sources of card advantage (Sylvan Library comes to mind, also Harmonize and Mind's Eye). Then get 30-ish anythings that inherently have evasion (like trample: Giant Adephage or flying: Balefire Dragon) or big abilities like Terastodon and Bane of Progress. Fill the gaps with red/green removal such as Beast Within and Chaos Warp, some tutors (Fierce Empath, Worldly Tutor) and other utility (Asceticism). And you will be ready.

Some really nice interactions include Malignus and your cmd, as well as Savage Ventmaw+Aggravated Assault and your cmd.

A nice finisher is Blightsteel Colossus with Chandra's Ignition for when you need a very dead table immediately.

Those are my two cents, hope they were kinda helpful... Getting into single cards and trying to make 20 cuts or so is a bit too tedious for me :(

enpc on Sisay has the answers (Competitive Commander Deck)

the_earl_0f_grey: Land Tax isn't really that good here. Having green means that typically you'll be the ramp player. On top of that, you have very few ways to tutor into it and you don't want to waste things like Enlightened Tutor on Land Tax when you could use it to get Umbral Mantle which outright wins games. While it's cute playing parfait, most of the time you'd rather it be something else.

Honor-Worn Shaku falls into the same category as Land Tax. Occasionally it's ok, but most of the time it's just slow. A 3 cmc rock that only taps ofr colourless is too slow, and while you can potentially get some additional mana from it, cards like Talisman of Unity are better as they can help you ramp into Sisay.

Wynh: Quicksilver Amulet used to be in the deck but was cut in place of more ramp. Ultimately, having a solid ramp package is better off than relying on a few "cheat into play" cards as you will hit the ramp more conistently and ramp menas you have more mana for non-creature spells, or consecutive creature spells.

Blightsteel Colossus is ok in more relaxed metas, but here just runs into the issue that it's not tutorable and expensive to cast. While yes, it demands an answer, so do cards like Elesh Norn which have just as much impact on the game but come down 5 turns earlier and synergise better with the rest of the deck.

This deck is going to be put under changes in the near future, it will either become a general that is considered one of the more competitive mono blue commanders, Azami, Lady of Scrolls. Or I will be shifting this deck towards a Mass Polymorph deck.

Just placing these as lists of cards that I need/want to try out. The first one is just a list of cards that I wish to put into the deck to make it better no matter what route I take. (these will be cards that are going to be included very soon.)Sky Diamond, Whir of Invention, Snow-Covered Island, Coldsteel Heart, Buried Ruin, Chrome Mox, Dramatic reversal, Gush, Extraplanar Lens, Muddle the Mixture, Long-Term Plans, Frantic Search, Back to Basics, Merchant Scroll, Mystical Tutor.

This next list is the cards I would need to make it a Mass Polymorph deck. Mass Polymorph, Synthetic Destiny, Polymorph, Proteus Staff. Deadeye Navigator, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, Blightsteel Colossus, Palinchron, Tidespout Tyrant

And lastly the last list is if i pushed it towards a Azami, Lady of Scrolls deck. /note for azami I will have to up the mana rock count by 5+ thus also including Paradox EngineMind Over Matter, Aphetto Alchemist, Cursecatcher, Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip, Laboratory Maniac, Martyr of Frost, Sage of Epityr, Sea Scryer, Snapcaster Mage, Stonybrook Banneret, Trinket Mage, Vedalken AEthermage

This last list is cards that I wish to put into the deck when I clear up funds for this particular deck.Time Spiral, Scalding Tarn, Polluted Delta, Misty Rainforest, Flooded Strand, Cavern of Souls, Sensei's Divining Top, Mox Opal, Mox Diamond, Mana Vault, Mana Crypt, Grim Monolith, Mana Drain, Force of Will,

Casey4321, Love-in-Theory, Raging_Squiggle, or anyone else who's interested:

I was planning something on the more competitive side of the spectrum, albeit not quite the normal deck. Cloudstone Curio and Ancestral Statue shenanigans will be a major point of the deck.

I was thinking something pseudo-stormy. Mostly creatures with entirely colorless costs, and I could chain them for free if I stack the mana costs correctly. As in, I cast a 1-cost creature then 2-cost creature then a 3-cost creature, etc, and pay zero mana total (off of an Animar with only 1 counter). I.e. heavy value abuse to generate huge board states very fast. This is also really "cute" with Paradoxical Outcome.

There are also five viable infinite storm combos in those colors that I'm aware of: Cloudstone Curio+two creatures that are free with Animar; Cloudstone Curio+Aluren; Aluren+self bounce creature; Palinchron with Animar at 4 counters; or Ancestral Statue if Animar has 4 counters.

All of these also have the side effect of making Animar into a LARGE/LARGE, so I could win by giving Animar trample, or just playing Grapeshot or Aetherflux Reservoir or something. And of course if the combo doesn't go off, there's always a Blightsteel Colossus or Emrakul, the Promised End to close out the game :)

Are there any cards that you could think of that could help with this strategy? Primarily in giving Animar counters faster, cheap and strong creatures that happen to be colorless in cost, or giving me the draw that's required for a storm deck...

I've never tried building proper storm in EDH - several of you have far more experience in that arena than me. What's worked for you?

That Master Transmuter is definitely something I want and I couldn't help appreciate the out of the box way to do infect most decks use Green. I definitely see what you mean about the Blightsteel Colossus

I'm trying to get enough money for a box of MM3. I have various things in my binder, including lots of random foils, plus what you see here: 2x Cavern of Souls, Blightsteel Colossus (heavily played), Snapcaster Mage, Inkmoth Nexus (Japanese), Sylvan Library (Commander's Arsenal, foil), Island (Unhinged, foil), Elvish Piper (8th Ed, foil), 2x Reanimate (Tempest), and a bunch of other random stuff.

Make me an offer.
