raspberryfish25 my friend did prevent me from having a lot of lands by destroying Mirari's Wake and From Beyond Dark Depths was a first turn play and he forgot. My friend said he was stupid for forgetting, I couldn't blame him Phyrexian Rebirth is a (female dog) in the late game.

Eldrazi_lord Thing about cards like Dark Depths is your friend should see Merit Lage coming from a mile away unless you are in a position where you can create infinite mana. If that is the case, then shame on your friend for letting you get in that position.

First, this just looks fun! Second, I see you run Dark Depths why not a Thespian's Stage to get a faster Marit? I know you'd ultimately lose the original via legend rule, but I like to think the beefcake known as Marit, well worth it xD

I assume not using Dark Depths is a conscious choice?

WARNING: TL;DR comment ahead.

@king-saproling: I apologize for my impatience & seeming like a stalker, sir; no intent on this at all. Anyways, Still not sure what to cut from those 3 decks? Maybe I can help?

Deck 3: You stated it can go from Cold to Hot/Hot to Cold & Weiß-Versa on a whim. Should I revert back to that build; w/ only minor changes to further the performance?

Deck 2: SO sorry about my statements; Docent of Perfection  Flip & Hammerfist Giant is better than I thought. These 2 back in; but, I've some ideas: Why not keep Karma + Kormus Bell + Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth all in just the same? Sunforger is great, but not truly incredible in Sevinne, the Chronoclasm . Potential Cut there. Elsha of the Infinite is stated to be amazing as hell; look at her builds. Keep. While Mizzix of the Izmagnus is incredible, He'd rather his own dedicated build, like Sevinne already is in the works of one of his own kind; and we've Thousand-Year Storm already. Chopped. Other notable inclusions worth keeping:

Jaya Ballard , Comet Storm (Why...?), Banefire , Time Wipe (Actually, maybe Azorius isn't so bad.), Winds of Abandon (But exiling even your Opponent's Swamps? Better than Armageddon .), God-Eternal Kefnet (WHAT?! He's practically a staple here.), Fanning the Flames (An X-Burn w/ Buyback? Back in.), Counterspell , Swords to Plowshares , Enlightened Tutor (All three of these are awesome no matter what. Keep^3), Scour All Possibilities (Scrying & Drawing is a good 241 here), & Echo of Eons (This is a permanent keep as so few Timetwister effects don't exile themselves right away. Unless you want Day's Undoing or Time Reversal , this is as good as limits can allow.)

We're at 112 (113 if we count Time Wipe ). Maybe you could find better cuts from what I stated please? Thanks. One deck remains; Deck 1.

Omnath, Locus of Mana still at 33 Cards over, The deck has one purpose; Unify both & ; as all 5 Mana Colors each had the masterful Trinity of Magic, Science, & Technology, cares much less about their own. Huge Prejudice over flight, Impurities, Anything that only counts as a creature within limits, is fine; & they blatantly Hypocritically used all those "Non-Creatures for themselves, & got away w/ it. Even long before The Ur-Dragon 's birth, even now, -Affiliated individuals don't give a care.

I'd like it if you cut 33 cards from this deck as well, all while keeping the theme of Magic, Science & Technology/Nature Technology Equality theme in mind for a & Mana Deck, please.

Finally, I might think of doing Atemsis, All-Seeing one last time. But I'm replacing my Deck entirely. Does Solemnity ring a bell? I tried to find the right Partner Commanders (C16); only to find all 5 colors have this property I can work with. But, Any suggestions for a 5 Color Commander that might help well w/ the idea of No-Counters Allowed Gameplay?

Sorry this is too much; I've no intention of being forceful. That said, I did help w/ some of the cuts. Now, king-saproling: Do you want to make some cuts for the 3 decks above alongside me

1: Omnath #1 Magic, Science, & Technology Unity Matters' Deck (Nature + Technology Themed.)

2: Sevinne Mass Burn Wrath, Non-perm Matters, & Self Protection Deck

3: Arjun Deck in question; you stated a build of this at one point was very great; albeit below 100 at the time. Should I revert back to that build w/ minor improvements?

4: What 5 Color CMDR would help w/ cards w/ Age Counters , Undying Counters , Charge Counters & Similar , & even after-death itself Phyrexian Unlife + Repay in Kind + Solemnity . Any ideas? Karona says no... XP ; Wonder if they also reject Experience Tokens , or even Energy Counters... (: You Know...)

Sorry if this was too much; I was just asking for one more favor to cut to 100 for said decks; not add more in please... X/

bubba64 Thanks for taking the time to have a look at my deck :). I really enjoy hearing you talk about the certain cards in your own deck as it helps justify their purpose and shows me their use.

I totally agree with what you are saying about my own lands being 35 + Glacial Chasm and how this is too few. I am still in design phase and this is one of the things I really need to get up to 38 on.

I feel honored to have inspired your Dark Depths + Thespian's Stage combo and would also recommend Vampire Hexmage for this too. Seeing as Vampire Hexmage is a creature and Dark Depths is a land, Muldrotha lets you play both each turn, meaning you can replay Dark Depths and then replay Vampire Hexmage from your graveyard for turn, then sacrifice Vampire Hexmage to instantly remove all counters from Dark Depths . The Vampire Hexmage is also an instant response to enemy planeswalkers or creatures with +1/+1 counters on them.

Synreth Thanks for your feedback! I'm happy to hear that this idea inspired you to make your own interpretation! Both Altar of Dementia and Jace, Wielder of Mysteries are great suggestions that I heavily considered when putting this together. I agree that they both deserve a place in the deck, especially labman Jace. The problem is that I'm having a lot of trouble finding cards to cut. I agree that Sinister Concoction may not be the most efficient removal, but the key is that it's repeatable with Muldrotha and without it, I'm only running one other piece of creature removal in the deck. I'm gonna take some more time to look it over and hopefully find a place for both of them.

As for your own deck, I love the addition of Dark Depths and Thespian's Stage . That's a great combo that will be easy to find once the mill gets going. And it really only takes one slot since thespian's stage can replace any other land.

One piece of advice I can give you is I noticed that you cut down to 35 lands (excluding glacial chasm) and I think that's too few considering that we need to get to 6 mana in order for the deck to function at all, and we aren't running very much ramp. I've tested my version and I found that even with 37 lands I still have a hard time getting to 6 mana consistently.

Thanks again for weighing in, and I wish you success with your own build!
