Possiblehope on Progenitus EDH (Tips?)

Thanks for the input RakdosCult, I do agree based on my play testing that card draw was a decently large problem within the deck and even with big drops that draw cards, Kozilek, Butcher of Truth it was rather poor at keeping a hand.I really like the land suggestion, as of before today I never heard of it and it would be an easy mana fixer. In a previous version I had a few single mana dorks that after lots of play testing had little impact, so I am trying to scrape up some funds for some higher end ones, i.e Birds of Paradise and Noble Hierarch. I will try to pick up the land and the Rhystic Study but with my funds being focused on other purchases I will pick up Consecrated Sphinx at a later date. Thanks again for the input and I will keep this updated with the deck's advancements.

The deck is very promising. Progenitus is a little tricky to build because of his illusion of being able to get high cost creatures since he is literally 2 of every color. You mentioned you're fixing the curve one thing I would suggest is ramp. Add low cost mana dorks to the deck to help with the difficult mana and also, you need ways to produce all five colors. A great land to put in is Crystal Quarry. While yes you have to pay five to tap for it's second ability, but and very important but it gives you all five colors to your mana pool. The deck also needs some sort of draw power to make sure you're consistently getting the things you need. Consecrated Sphinx, and Rhystic Study work great for this kind of deck. Those are just my two cents, best of luck with the deck and I hope my suggestions were at least some help. Cheers.

I'm assuming a mix of removal and counters would be best? I'm imagining one or two enchantments like Oblivion Ring or Darksteel Mutation to disable some threats that have indestructible and some instants like Swords to Plowshares to deal with immediate threats (eg.Kaalia of the Vast or Consecrated Sphinx).

Is it more beneficial to run cards like Swords to Plowshares which is super low cost, but only targets creatures, or is it better to use cards like Counterspell which is slightly more cost and can only be used before the spell resolves, but can target anything?

Randsome: Show and Tell is there to primarily to cheat out Omniscience. However it has additional uses with Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur and Consecrated Sphinx. It turns unfortunate early draws into functional threats.

So I hada go making the deck, but no matter what I do it doesn't seem to mesh with me. I think that the deck is better suited to being a build around with Thrasios, Triton Hero at the head. So for now I'll keep my Damia the way she is, but wit ha few minor tweaks. I'm thinking of mainboarding Thrasios as part of the 99 for more card advantage, as well as replacing Consecrated Sphinx with Necropotence.

When I got back into the game ~5 years ago, I'd say my pet card was Engulfing Slagwurm. I'd jam a bunch of the big wurms in with mana dorks like Llanowar Elves, Fyndhorn Elves, Fyndhorn Elder, Greenweaver Druid, etc. I also loved Terra Stomper lol

Other pet cards when I was playing casual 60 card decks were Dark Ritual and Counterspell. I own like 20 of each now :P

These days I'm pretty much only playing edh. I like Bloodgift Demon as a budget evasive beater with card draw. Consecrated Sphinx is in 4/8 of my edh decks. Definitely one of my top favorite at the moment. The other decks don't run blue lol

Is there a reason people think Consecrated Sphinx is bad? It's obviously not good in fast combo decks, but in a slow, midrange/control deck like Tasigur, it is great. It has been fantastic for me, especially in tandem with Seedborn Muse.
