antacidbrn on Using Cantrips...how many for non-control ...

Toolmaster, do you think Bloodbraid Elf makes sense at all? It starts a new chain of creatures. You are right that I am trying to do that and have not had the greatest amount of success.

Took this version to the National Championships at Cancon and went 3-4, so fairly happy with that.

Got some free wins with Blood Moon so that was good, and had some super close games, including paying 8 life with Sylvan Library to be able to draw and cast Vengevine and Bloodbraid Elf, which cascded into The Elderspell when my opponent had 4 Planeswalkers on the board (sadly The Elderspell got hit by Force of Will).

I personally wouldn't want to play without actual mechanics. Created mechanics would have to be learned, there's no rulings to settle disagreements, and no previous examples of what NOT to do (see Bloodbraid Elf ). Just a personal perspective.

Maybe add Oblivion Ring as a one or two of as just blanket removal against fringe cards. Also Veil of Summer in the sideboard might be useful against control. I don't like Domri that much, he seems slow and requires a lot of creatures or counter-magic from the other side to pay off in my opinion. Boros Charm and Atarka's Command are very aggressive cards that can be fantastic in zoo or burn, but this seems like it wants to play a slower and more reactive game, so you could swap them out for Collected Company / Chord of Calling and more creatures ( Elvish Reclaimer is a personal favorite, but you should probably go with some creatures from Death and Taxes lists). Otherwise, I like the plan of running either many lands (at least 24) and a few Arboreal Grazer type effects or dorks like Noble Hierarch and a slightly lower curve so you can just plan on dumping your hand and then spinning the wheel with Bloodbraid Elf and Throes of Chaos each turn. Cool deck, love Knight of the Reliquary , Throes of Chaos , and the idea of a true naya midrange deck!

Hold it, I changed my mind about Karona, False God . I'll try & revise this Yidris CHAOS Deck the way I intended it to be. Rules?

  1. Keep the Land Base as it is.

  2. Keep the Talismans, Rings, & Crypt for decent measure. I'll let you decide the fate of the rest of the Rocks.

  3. Aggravated Assault + Bear Umbra are in as they not only allow extra Combat, but this Bear, unlike the entire Bear Creature Type, untaps all your lands for additional Cascades.

  4. Same for Erebos, God of the Dead ; Havoc Festival might be too risky; but I got to gain life too you know.

  5. Hmmm... It seems this deck has a potential Draw Engine. I benefit from opponents discarding while I Draw, hell, Waste Not is awesome here too; likewise for Bone Miser .

  6. Chance Encounter + Frenetic Efreet WILL be a Wincon here, though I'd like several others; including a combo that for CHAOS terms, It's kinda GG if in my favor, but can cost me SEVERELY; almost to the point of a Loss; A True Battle of CHAOTICA.

  7. What Other Coin Flip Effects and/or Random effects would you put in? What other misc. CHAOS Effects would be good also?

  8. On theme w/ Cascade, what cards in Yidris' Colors might be good here, & has Cascade? ( Throes of Chaos , Kathari Remnant , Bloodbraid Elf , Deny Reality , Etherium-Horn Sorcerer & Maelstrom Wanderer are prime, but I dunno about Demonic Dread , Violent Outburst , Shardless Agent , & Bituminous Blast ... your thoughts would be good though...)

I'm at 100. This means I'll have to replace ALOT of stuff. I hope you're ready. I'll put some stuff back in, but I might need some help yet again; at least for the Wincons I described them as such...

Thank you for helping me out. :)
