are you looking to make this better, more competitive, or just more fun?
If you want it better, I strongly suggest you go the + route. It's already a pretty competitive deck, and can be transitioned to edh pretty easily. A lot of players may scoff at you since they think you can kill only 1 player at a time, but by going BUG instead of GU, you should be able to fill out the rough edges of your deck.
Yes momir is good, but you have to consider he's essntially a 5cc tutor as your commander. Turn 5 you should be about to combo anyways. By adding black, you have access to the following combo pieces:
Demonic Tutor Tainted Pact Diabolic Intent Demonic Consultation VERY important, "B: get rid of your library"Dread Return combo'd with Narcomoeba and others for fun times! All reanimation spells are also a bonus. Think about it, you pitch your library, cast Reanimate , or better yet; Necromancy as an instant during your upkeep, return laboratory maniac to play, and laugh while you won turn 3.discard, discard, DISCARD,
So to recap:
Cut all non combo pieces, (lots of extra cards in there). Add in better countermagic, (free). Misdirection = Force of Will in this type of deckAdd in discard, (only a few 1cc spells like Thoughtseize . and anti counter cards like Boseiju, Who Shelters All Autumn's Veil Add in REANIMATION spells. This will help combo. In a pinch, remember if you can painter vs one opponent, reanimating THEIR graveyard critters may save you for an extra turn!Tutors are your friend! All edh combo decks need em.Expect to be booted from games when players realize your deck!
As a commander, you can run The Mimeoplasm , In the event you stall, or you're unable to get laboratory maniac from the yard, you can dupe it
This challenge is for two types of people: the Old Fogey that soothly misses the good olde days of Magic, before the mischievous age of Miracles, Infect, and Annihilator, and the Young whippersnapper that wants to know what the game was like when artifacts were brown.
For this challenge, well try out the Johnny-beloved format of Rainbow Stairwell.
What to do:
Post your deck here by Wednesday, August 20, at which time I shall take all submissions and have a tournament to determine the superlative one.
Banned List- Fie upon the miscreant to post hither a deck whereinsoever contains a card mentioned forthwith:
Good luck to all and may the best antiquarian win!
P.S. If anyone wants me to ping them when I post a new challenge so you don't miss out, let me know.
I'm pretty sure Spoils of the Vault would kill me every time, though. Demonic Consultation on the other hand, seems like a great card to add in, and I found it from looking up SotV, so thank you emask.
Unfortunately Demonic Consultation doesn't work because the spell has to be exiled with Jeleva :/
So, let's break it down.... in a vacuum. Or try to.
Force of Will , Jace, the Mind Sculptor , Stifle , Mental Misstep , Mana Drain , Time Walk , Ancestral Recall , Vendilion Clique , Snapcaster Mage , Brainstorm , Gush , Back to Basics , Mystical Tutor , Daze , True-Name Nemesis .
Contract from Below , Yawgmoth's Will , Demonic Tutor , Vampiric Tutor , Necropotence , Demonic Consultation , Dark Ritual , Dark Confidant , Thoughtseize , Yawgmoth's Bargain , Hymn to Tourach , Liliana of the Veil , Entomb , Sinkhole , Diabolic Edict , Imperial Seal , Cabal Therapy , Animate Dead , Reanimate , Exhume .
Suffice it to say that Black and Blue are busted as all hell.
Demonic Consultation is a good idea! But I haven't it xD, I try to get it thanks!
Btw, this deck actually isn't focus in autodecking, only Enter the Infinite has the power to secure win in this way 'cause a fast removal targeting Laboratory Maniac in right moment end with me unless I've all the fuxxing library in my mind (hand).
A few thoughts I had:
For the amount of spells this deck has I was surprised I didn't see Boseiju, Who Shelters All .
