VexenX on [[Primer]]-God of the Rising FULL Moon! Butts Up!!

1 day ago

Below are the Combos that I am adding to the Primer. Just because they are listed, does not mean that they are in my build, but that they COULD be in this deck. My list is not looking to combo out to win, but I do not disregard it as an option for others.

Gravecrawler + Phyrexian Altar +


Gravecrawler + Rooftop Storm + SACK OUTLET +

Gray Merchant of Asphodel + Rite of Replication: 60+ damage to each opponent and a lot of life.

Grave Titan + Ashnod's Altar + Nim Deathmantle = Infinite Zombies

Havengul Lich + Rooftop Storm = All Zombies in GY cost

Gempalm Polluter + Lord of the Undead, Volrath's Stronghold OR Unholy Grotto = The gift that keeps on giving!

Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth + Cabal Coffers = Ya, Just in case you didnt know.

If you run Cloudstone Curio:

Soldcastro: All three of those Enchantments have been game-winners for me. I am rarely upset drawing any of them! They also synergize well in this deck with The Scarab God.

I find that I have the opposite problem when it comes to hand size. I use our Commander's zombie making ability quite a bit, which keep your hand full because you are not spending the mana to cast stuff your hand as much.

Phyrexian Altar is on the way, and will be in the deck for Cemetery Reaper.

Hey, I'm not sure if it is possible to put the "based on so and so's deck" thing on a deck after it has been built. If I could I would pick your deck. If anyone knows a way to do that I would be interested in learning about it. The Aluren + Cloudstone Curio is a win condition in my deck that I have been toying with for over a year now. I found it here first and wanted to say thank you for that.

If you would please take a look at the cEDH monster you helped me build, it would mean a great deal to me. (I know shameless plug for my deck) I would really love your opinion on it though. I play in a different kind of meta with The Gitrog Monster combo, Zur the Enchanter doomsday, Captain Sisay paradox, Teferi, Temporal Archmage chainveil, and General Tazri foodchain decks. Highly competitive kind of thing.

This is my attempt to took what you did and make it something that can keep up with all of that: EzurggroTech

Thanks you so much for this!

IlPippero on Mono-B enters the battlefield

Thanks for the suggestions Funkydiscogod!Gatekeeper of Malakir feels great in this deck, I will surely try it. The same is true for Big Game HunterI played a lot a version of this deck using Skull Collector during the Mirroding - Kamigawa period, probably it works better than Cloudstone Curio in this deck; I'll have to play some games to compare the two.

I prefer Devour in Shadow over Victim of Night.

What about Gatekeeper of Malakir instead of Geth's Verdict? It's more mana expensive, but you can bounce it back.

Skull Collector might be a card to back up the Curio; allowing you to again get more ETB effects; but it does have the problem that if all other creatures get killed, he'll have to bounce himself. He gets bonus points because regeneration lets him survive many Modern removal spells.

It seems like Cloudstone Curio might have a combo with Priest of Urabrask, but that's a idea for another deck.

Since you have some self-discard, maybe Big Game Hunter instead of Nekrataal?

+1, although I may have already done so in the past (sorry, I'm forgetful)

You've got a very good deck here!

Has Spellskite been helpful to you? I used to run it, but found that it ended up turning out like this.

  1. I cast spellskite
  2. My opponent casts a removal spell on an important elf.
  3. I redirect to spellskite.
  4. I'm short a creature, and my opponent is short a removal.

Usually, it ends up becoming a 2 mana evoke creature with give one time hexproof.


Nettle sentinel is simply there, as stated by EWDijkstra, because it works very well with heritage druid, and is good with chord of calling. Sentinel is also used in a different elf deck, which runs cards such as Beck / Call (a modern legal of Glimpse of Nature, which got banned at the start of modern), Cloudstone Curio, and Elvish Visionary. The scenario in which nettle sentinel can basically end games is this;

Tap 3 sentinel for 3 mana (off heritage druid), cast Elvish Visionary. You leave 1 Green floating, and you draw a card. Because of Cloudstone Curio, if you have another visionary, you can return it to your hand.

Next, you cast another visionary. This time, you have 2 Green floating, and you use cloudstone curio to return visionary.

You can continue by using your nettles to cast the same 2 visionarys over and over, until you have a whole ton of mana, which can be placed into a spell such as Banefire, casting a Craterhoof Behemoth, activating an ezuri multiple times, etc.

Dont forget nettle also can be a vanilla 2/2 with pseudo vigilance (sometimes better than vigilance)

You may want to add Cloudstone Curio to help with your combos

I'm sitting here constantly wondering why Ancestral Statue would be helpful. Am I missing something?

If you wanted to bounce an enchantment Cloudstone Curio seems better.

LittleBlueHero on Gitrog Monster or Ishkanah, Grafwidow?

1 week ago

I built Ishkanah and have had a blast with her.

Benefit 1: No one at the table is ever overly intimidated by her. So I don't get teamed up on until my board becomes overly saturated with tokens and such.

Benefit 2: She can finish games. Not every commander has the ability to take someone out without attacking. It won't happen every game but it will be relevant more than you'd think.

I built her with a lot of self mill but I also tried to keep Enter the battlefield effects in mind rather than focus on spiders. If she enters the field enough times she builds her own army.

Panharmonicon, Cloudstone Curio, Erratic Portal are all all stars in any deck with a ETB commander... pair that with cards like Eternal Witness, Reclamation Sage and such and you have a nice annoying package that can come back from the yard too since you are golgari.

I do like hypnotoad but I love the Spider Queen.
