GhostChieftain on Junk colors in EDH

I <3 Karador. Been playing him for about 7 years in one form or another and while he and muldrotha are quite similar, he has one huge boon that muldrotha does not and that is the ability to run the Reveillark and friends cards in here as well as Boonweaver Giant to put them all in play. Sure, karador wont get in play much, but when he does come in he will only cost wbg and will be able to bring back a combo piece or hatebear with any leftover mana you might have. As far as making it more aggro, I have been considering adding Craterhoof Behemoth and Finale of Devastation and between those and Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite your mana dorks can deal a lot of damage. Here is my current list if you want to check it out. As it currently stands, it can keep up with a lot of cEDH decks. Karador is great, and I will always advocate for his use.

Cool list...I'm curious what's your reasoning for having Boonweaver Giant ? Is there some sort of combo I'm missing?

I see that your maybeboard has additional reveillark and friends cards, but is missing Fiend Hunter . It infinite combos with a sac outlet and either sun titan or karmic guide. It can also be used as a way to permanently exile with a sac outlet by in response to your etb trigger you sacrifice it so its ltb trigger happens first.

I also highly suggest Boonweaver Giant + Pattern of Rebirth ( and Academy Rector to find pattern easier) and Protean Hulk since both can be used to get your entire combo on board.

I have a karador deck that uses these to great effect and is currently ranked 4 out of 30 some in my local league. The combo is written out in my deck description if you want to take a look.

Mot much for me to add. Every card I thought xhould be in here already is.

A few minor quibbles though.

I'd do Authority of the Consuls over Blind Obedience Curse of Bounty or One with Nature over Cultivate etc

Maybe Open the Vaults ?

Gift of Immortality is a must if you're going to have Boonweaver Giant - with any sac outlet they give you infinite enchantment etb triggers.

Why no Boonweaver Giant and Pattern of Rebirth ? You can use those as a second copy of Protean Hulk and more consistantly combo off.

I would also say you should get more sac outlets such as Viscera Seer and Carrion Feeder

Here is my list. I think it could give you some different ideas. +1 For using my favorite commander

I wrote out a long comment explaining and it some reason logged me out. I will not be typing it all out again as it is a lot lol.

Here is a primer that explains it pretty well, but it was written before Protean Hulk was made legal again. It can basically be used interchangeably with Boonweaver Giant and Pattern of Rebirth .

A cute 1-card combo of sorts you could add here is Boonweaver Giant .

Boonweaver can fetch up Pattern of Rebirth (a card I'd also suggest you include in here), sac him to get Karmic Guide which reanimates him and puts Pattern back on him.

Sac him again to get a Fiend Hunter to exile the Karmic Guide, sac the Hunter to bring back Boonweaver and Pattern again.

Sac Guide, then Boonweaver again for Reveillark to bring back Guide and Fiend Hunter.

From there you can sac Boonweaver to get any outlet and loop Guide/Lark infinitely.

Only adds 2 cards to your list, at least one of which I think you should be playing regardless.

If you changed up your list I'd recommend first updating it on here so people know what direction the deck is going :)

Glad my suggestions helped! As a rule of thumb I would keep Leyline of Anticipation in decks that aim to run control -counterspells, bounce, stax pieces and the like- that also wants to play their own things. That lets you keep up mana to counter opponents if you need to, or play stuff on an opponent's end step if you want to. The only things in your current list I could see being helpful to be cast on another person's turn are your ramp enchantments, some of the creatures, and maybe the sorceries.

Which brings me to a new list of recommendations. You may or may not find these are helpful for your current deck, or you may find these are a little out of budget for you. But, they are good cards so I'll recommend them anyways. If I were to only recommend 3-4 cards, it would be Karmic guide, Reveillark, Saffi Eriksdotter, and Greater Good or another sac outlet. The rest are, admittedly, a little bit on the pricey side.

Academy Rector A 4 mana creature, and when it dies you tutor for any enchantment and put it right onto the battlefield.

Enlightened Tutor Find an enchantment or artifact in your library and put it to the top, instant speed and one mana.

Saffi Eriksdotter 2 mana creature, sac it targeting a creature. When that creature dies this turn return it to the battlefield.

Karmic Guide + Reveillark and a sac outlet (I would recommend an enchantment for it like Greater Good , Martyr's Cause, or Fanatical Devotion because they are enchantments, or Phyrexian Altar / Ashnod's Altar for infinite mana) gives you a nasty combo of infinite ETB of power 2 or less creatures. Paired with Saffi it's just infinite ETBs given there is no Tormod's Crypt / Grafdigger's Cage effect on board.

Auramancer or Monk Idealist as another Hanna.

If you add in most of the cards above (must incl. Saffi, reveillark, karmic guide, and a sac outlet. It is MUCH easier if also incl. academy rector and/or enlightened tutor) then I'd suggest going with Boonweaver Giant + Pattern of Rebirth , Concordant Crossroads , and Craterhoof Behemoth

Dryad Arbor It's a land, that is also a creature. No you cannot tap it for mana the turn it comes in, but it is 0 mana to play. This can be used really creatively.

Maybe also a Cyclonic Rift and Rhystic Study just because they are both REALLY good.

Now, if you do consider adding in the cards above, then yes I would totally add in the Leyline. If you have it on board, say 10 mana, sac outlet and a creature, if you just put in the pattern at end step then combo off after they have a turn to use mana- absolutely worth it, as you basically can take two turns in a row without opponents untapping in between. But if you don't have explosive combo turns or controlling cards, it isn't worth it in my opinion.

It also looks like in this list you have a little bit too much white mana and not enough blue- are you finding that's the case when you play it?
