freakingShane: Glad you like it! Here's the answers:

  1. Chain of Vapor is unconditional removal: it removes any card that's preventing you from winning (stuff like Torpor Orb, Stony Silence, Null Rod, Linvala, Keeper of Silence, Arcane Laboratory, etc., etc. PLUS, it's also a mana trick, if you target your own Mana Crypt or Mana Vault or Mox Opal, or all three, you can really generate a lot of mana to fuel your combo.

  2. Dack Fayden is probably one of the weaker cards in the list, but Tezzeret is a lot worse. Dack's really here for his +1 ability, which is awesome. It dramatically improves your card quality in hand, it helps you find mana when you need, helps you ditch too many lands when you don't need it, and it puts combo pieces in the graveyard, where they're needed. If you can activate Dack's +1 for 2 or three turns, it's really very powerful. The only downside is that it's sometimes hard to get blockers for Dack, but if you can cast Breya that really solves that problem.

  3. Pull from Eternity is great if people are trying to exile your graveyard combo pieces. It's also great with Tainted Pact and sometimes Doomsday, Yawgmoth's Will, or Chrome Mox. Try it. I think you'll like it.

I really like this deck, man. It's super focused and well built, but I do have a three questions.

  1. What is the main reason for Chain of Vapor/how is it best used?
  2. Is Dack Fayden the better choice in this deck over Tezzeret the Seeker ? Is it a CMC thing, or overall usability?
  3. How often is Pull from Eternity really needed/used? I feel like that is meta dependent, of course, but I'm curious about it from your perspective.

Thanks in advance, and again, super nice deck!

Saw your video for this deck on YouTube. I think you did a great job with the deck construction, with keeping the cost low, and probably many players already having some of the newer cards. Sure, as you said, this deck could be upgraded for a fortune, but I think it'll work just fine in casual EDH. Only thing I'd like to say about it is, any of the Tezzeret planeswalker cards could work, either Daretti, and also Dack Fayden, if any player wanted to use a different one. But that's my opinion. Again, great work on a hard commander to work around!

Sorin, Grim Nemesis has a pretty powerful plus ability, but might just make people mad at you.

Garruk Wildspeaker has been really useful for me, I often find a place for him and Freyalise.

In the right deck Xenagos, the Reveler is preposterous. His mana production beside somebody like Prossh cant be understated. Again, it might only happen once, but if youre playing a reasonable number of tokens it can be hard to get at him.

Other than that, I would expect some of the ones already named to top the list; Tezzeret the Seeker , Dack Fayden, Liliana Vess and Liliana of the Dark Realms. Mono-Red Daretti is great, either leading the deck or in the right 99.

Because of the way that planeswalkers tend to die pretty quickly in a multiplayer game unless you are playing a superfriends strategy, where the fact that you have a lot of planeswalkers out helps them protect each other, I only play planeswalkers if I am happy with only activating one of their abilities that they can activate when they enter the battlefield.

In my 6 irl decks, the only one I play is Dack Fayden, who can Steal Artifact for 1 less mana and without an enchantment that can be gotten rid of to undo the steal.

Besides him, I am now looking at maybe adding Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip to my Medomai the Ageless control deck, probably adding Tezzeret the Seeker to my Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge aikido deck, and possibly adding Liliana, Death's Majesty to my Teneb, the Harvester necromancer deck.

Im looking towards doing something similar... Have you considered Dack Fayden?

Also, have you had any issues getting out treasure or using Revel in Riches to win with this?

Really nice deck!!

I would recommend Alchemist's Refuge, Aethersnatch, Gather Specimens, Insidious Will, Kefnet's Last Word, Confiscation Coup, and Dack Fayden. I played a deck similarly with Mizzix (It is now time to put on your 3-D glasses). You may also want to consider Ashnod's Altar and Phyrexian Altar to say opponents creatures after you steal them, or sac your own so they can't be manipulated.
