Chalice of the Void Discussion

I am not talking about old reserved list cards - these are, ironically enough, much more difficult to fake. They were printed in an imperfect manner with numerous quirks and that takes a lot more skill to reproduce. Additionally, because these cards are super expensive, people are much more careful about fakes.
I am talking about expensive Modern staples. Innistrad Snapcaster Mage, Liliana of the Veil, WWK Jace, the Mind Sculptor, 8th edition Ensnaring Bridge or mirrodin Chalice of the Void, future sight Goyfs - these are the juicy targets for counterfiting.
They have the benefit of being easy to counterfit, but suffer from less sscrutiny.
Also, I am all for new countermeasures, as long as they are effective ones. The TSA is a prime example of security theater - security added for no real benefit. I think holograms on MTG cards are a form of security theater.

Hey ravhin9027. The win condition is simple: cast godo, search for helm of the host, and equip. At the beginning of your combat, you make a hasty token copy of godo that will not die from the legend rule. You attack a player and get another combat. The helms ability retriggers and you rinse and repeat until youve killed all your opponents.
Because that combo is 11 mana (6 for godo, 5 to equip), many of the slots are dedicated to getting us more mana like Seething Song and Treasonous Ogre, or to get double godo triggers. Double godo triggers will allow us to go off as such: Cast godo, tutor up Hammer of Nazahn. Then, play a copy spell on godo, such as Twinflame. The new copy comes into play and tutors up helm of the host, which will Au automatically equip to the original godo (go ahead and sac the new one to the legend rule since we dont care about it), and combo off.
Because our wincon is a bit disruptable and expensive, the rest of the slots are filled with high powered stax pieces such as Trinisphere, Chalice of the Void, and Blood Moon. These pieces are so powerful that they have made mono red dragons an actual thing in legacy. Sometimes a resolved chalice or blood moon spells games for certain opponents.
The deck flow is to ramp hard, set up stax along the way, and cast godo and win. You can goldfish as early as a turn 1 win, and as late as a turn 5 or 6 win.
The best card in the deck is Treasonous Ogre by far. If you pay 33 life, you can go off on the spot, assuming you havent already casted godo this game. That and Mana Crypt are your primary tutor targets off of Gamble.
This deck is specifically designed to be able to compete in extremely competitive cEDH 4 man pods composed with stuff like tazri food chain, partners combo, grixis storm, blood pod stax, selvala brostorm, and everything in between. This isnt a tier 1 deck (although theres truly no such thing as tiers in EDH), but I think it has enough juice to have more than a punchers chance in a cEDH pod. Hope that helps and let me know if you have any questions!

I used to only run 3 As nauseam and 2 copies of Serum Visions and 1 copy of Mystic Speculation. It worked slightly better in isolation of the rest of the deck, but it ultimately made Chalice of the Void, (Which I view as one of the better aspects of the deck,) that much worse.
That all being said, there are matchups, like Burn, where I usually side out 1 Ad Nauseam. (I should probably mention that in my description now I think about it.)
Thank you for the feedback.

This deck is evil, and I love it! Probably not my type of hate, I like land destruction in red a bit more, but I like this route too. Consider Catastrophe, in case 1 Armageddon wasn't enough, or maybe Chalice of the Void to hate out early aggro

I remember a deck I was mostly building/ trading for. It was a control deck in W/R where you wipe the board with Wrath of God and Lightning Helix, and use Blood Moon and Chalice of the Void to lock down spell casting. Your win con is usually ulting nahiri and fetching Emrakul, the Aeons Torn.
Think Skred red but with white in it. It definitely looked interesting.
Simply put, using nahiri as a toolbox and abusing the ult makes for a good control enabler.

Hey! I've been building something similar and just came across your deck, wich helped alot with the building of mine. I included Faithless Looting in my list, since i don't have Chalice of the Void in mine. Was thinking of cards like Greater Auramancy or Boros Charm in the siedeboard to protect the combo, and Vexing Shusher instead of Defense Grid. Is it worth it, or do you usually win to fast for opp being able to pay the extra mana?I'm still in the buildphase of mine, so havn't actually tested it, but just useing the "decktest" feature here, Faithless Looting seems really good in the deck.

I wish they could have gave Chalice of the Void new art, but oh well, a reprint is still appreciated even if its at mythic after all.
