Gleeock on The meanest, most expensive deck ...

2 weeks ago

Captain Sisay + max stax + elf dorks & mox + MLD + a few key pieces. Don't even waste card slots on targeted removal, you combo out too quick (hence why I don't build this Sisay deck) but this is a deck that really turn 3's people when built right. If you NEED removal, Urza's Ruinous Blast can be tutored and tends to set people back. Just use Captain Sisay + rocks + Paradox Engine + tutor up 0 cost mox... start casting, tutoring, get card draw elf Selvala, Explorer Returned, get Dromoka, lock people out... grow your rocks until you draw into MLD. ETC...

Can you run the following more streamlined combo from Sisay Primer (Stax-Combo) (100% Competitive!)?

Cast Captain Sisay, pass the turn, or give it haste with Lightning Greaves or something.

Fetch Paradox Engine, cast it that same turn hopefully. Then pass the turn, or untap Captain Sisay by casting a spell.

Untapped Captain Sisay + Paradox Engine = Win:

Tap Sisay, Fetch Mox Amber, cast it, untapping Sisay.

Tap both, Floating , and finding Mox Opal, cast it, untapping the other mox and Sisay.

Tap both Mox, floating , and fetch Seton, Krosan Protector, then cast it.

Tap out for , fetch Dosan the Falling Leaf, and cast it, floating nothing. Untap.

Tap out for , fetch Bow of Nylea, and cast it, floating nothing. Untap.

Tap out for , fetch Bontu's Monument, cast it, floating nothing and untap.

Tap out for , fetch Mikaeus, the Lunarch, and cast it.

You now can drop Mikaeus, the Lunarch with no counters so it dies, Bow of Nylea it back into the deck, and fetch it out again, infinite times. Bontu's Monument will drain for win.

My main concern of the deck is the "competitive" tag. That tag would imply this deck is a fully optimized, competitive list, able to see play against the best decks of the format, and still have a decent winrate.

This list, from what I see, is not able to accomplish this.


I honestly do not know what this deck is trying to do, as there was not a primer for it, nor an explanation, but I will look and see, If I am wrong in my analysis, please correct me, and I will apologize promptly if I am mistaken entirely.


It looks like a Shadowborn Apostle deck, that is using the apostles to cheat out few choice demons, of which there are 7 total, out of them Demon of Death's Gate and Ravenous Demon  Flip are simply large beatsticks, and so are basically useless for a cEDH deck, Indulgent Tormentor is the same unless you team with an opponent, and Rune-Scarred Demon is a Demonic Tutor on a stick. Ob Nixilis, Unshackled is a big hate-on search, but the 10 life and sacrifice a creature should barely hurt a player unless they are paradox combo with Captain Sisay or Arcum Dagsson, and so they use a Swords to Plowshares on it or Pongify and then combo off. Harvester of Souls is decent card draw, and Razaketh, the Foulblooded is actual tutoring.

What can you tutor for or draw to win? Not much I am afraid you only have 6 removal spells, and they aren't very good for these colors, no Dismember or anything else really.

Without Mana Crypt, Mox Diamond, Mana Vault, Fellwar Stone, Mind Stone, Lotus Petal, or Chrome Mox type effects, you can't legitimately expect to pull a win with this deck at a competitve table, and your card draw is just horrendous.

At least I would suggest you do the courtesy of running your good tutors, Demonic Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, Imperial Seal and Grim Tutor (some decks don't need Grim Tutor), along with Necropotence for draw and Ad Nauseam + Angel's Grace for the draw your deck.


May I ask about you landbase?

Commonly, for a competitive deck, the usually 2-color landbase looks like:

Ancient Tomb and Gemstone Caverns (the extra ramp lands)

Scrubland and Godless Shrine (the fetchable duals in your colors)

Windswept Heath, Bloodstained Mire, Polluted Delta, Flooded Strand, Verdant Catacombs, Arid Mesa, and Marsh Flats (the 7 fetchlands in your colors.)

City of Brass, Mana Confluence, Caves of Koilos, Fetid Heath, Concealed Courtyard, Command Tower, Forbidden Orchard, Exotic Orchard, Reflecting Pool, Gemstone Caverns, and Tarnished Citadel (the 11 unfetchable duals in your colors)

Cavern of Souls and Phyrexian Tower (the useful utility lands of your deck)

1xPlains and 6xSwamp

This 31 card landbase is fully tuned and optimized for a competitive deck, why does yours not run the rest of the good fetches, and all of the good duals?


To be entirely honest, I don't think this is a bad deck, and don't want to offend you or your deck-building skills, but I would hope you drop the "competitive" tag or change the deck a lot, it is mis-leading as it is.

If you want any deck-building advice on how to make this deck competitive, I suggest heading on over to Why Every Commander is Competitive and learning from that resource I set up for new players to cEDH.

I still need some stuff cut for this deck:

Nahiri, the Harbinger

Toxic Deluge

Primevals' Glorious Rebirth

Merciless Eviction

Kiora, the Crashing Wave

Coalition Relic

Oath of Ajani

But I will NOT sacrifice:

Rowan Kenrith + Will Kenrith (Rowan can kill alongside Lightmine Field & her Emblem is Bonkers. Will Freezes huge threats & Further cheapens Planeswalker Costs.)

Cryptolith Rite (Tokens as Mana is BIG.)

Lightmine Field (Kills Attackers.)

Apocalypse + Teferi's Protection (A WIN-CON. X'P)

Sandwurm Convergence (Locks Flyers from attacking.)

Eldrazi Monument (Remember, Sliver Queen can make her own Brood.)

Narset Transcendent (She locks down opponents.)

Paradox Engine

Thran Temporal Gateway

Captain Sisay (This combo explodes.)

I hope all understand... Good luck!

Selling some stuff out of my collection, everything should be marked below TCG low as of today. Shipping is $0.50 in PWE at buyer's risk or $3 for tracking and insurance. If you are interested in multiple cards, if it's over $50 I will give a discount. Thanks for looking!

May I ask why you don't use the more streamlined combo?

Now to explain the actual combo, it is a quite simple combo, that takes one turn/tutor/cast after you fetch Paradox Engine from Captain Sisay and takes at the slowest 3 turns on a normal curve to win after turn 4. (you win by turn 6 then).

Cool, now here is the combo.

Cast Captain Sisay, pass the turn, or give it haste with Lightning Greaves or something.

Fetch Paradox Engine, cast it that same turn hopefully. Then pass the turn, or untap Captain Sisay by casting a spell.

Untapped Captain Sisay + Paradox Engine = Win:

Tap Sisay, Fetch Mox Amber, cast it, untapping Sisay.

Tap both, Floating , and finding Mox Opal, cast it, untapping the other mox and Sisay.

Tap both Mox, floating , and fetch Seton, Krosan Protector, then cast it.

Tap out for , fetch Dosan the Falling Leaf, and cast it, floating nothing. Untap.

Tap out for , fetch Bow of Nylea, and cast it, floating nothing. Untap.

Tap out for , fetch Bontu's Monument, cast it, floating nothing and untap.

Tap out for , fetch Mikaeus, the Lunarch, and cast it.

You now can drop Mikaeus, the Lunarch with no counters so it dies, Bow of Nylea it back into the deck, and fetch it out again, infinite times. Bontu's Monument will drain for win.

This takes up a lot less space than fetching Blasting Station from Inventors' Fair, and using Azusa, Lost but Seeking to get the land drops, and you don't need the mana to cast Dragonlord Dromoka with Dosan the Falling Leaf. It also doesn't rely on Reki, History of Kamigawa, so no need for infinite casts of Green Sun's Zenith. You don't need to rely on targetting with Bontu's Monument (as opposed to Blasting Station).

In total, the combo I suggest you use is a 9 card combo, but I will call it an 8 card combo as one is the commander. 8 cards is still a lot of dead draws, but normally Mox Amber, Mox Opal (if you have metalcraft), Dosan the Falling Leaf, and a few other cards in the combo aren't entirely dead.

Your current combo runs 14 dead cards, not including Captain Sisay for obvious reasons. (I didn't include Green Sun's Zenith either as it would be run regardless of the combo.) And the same thing is true about how you don't mind drawing a Mox Amber or whatever, but being able to drop 6 semi-dead cards makes the deck much more refined.
