I dunno why he has to be an enchantment creature, but OK.

Ziuss, the Enchanted

Legendary Enchantment Creature - Human Wizard

Ziuss, the Enchanted gets +1/+1 for each aura attached to it.

Each time that Ziuss becomes enchanted, select an option below that hasn't been selected previously. Ziuss gains that ability.

  • Flying
  • First Strike
  • Lifelink
  • Trample
  • Indestructible
  • Hexproof


I figure if we can make an enchantment that has "pick something that hasn't been picked before" (i.e. Demonic Pact ), why not an enchantment creature?

Queen of Curses ala Queen Marchesa (Long May She Reign) is a awesome commander who brings the Monarch mechanic into the deck. To accompany your previously mentioned subthemes you could utilize Curses - which are a typical sub-theme of the Queen 's. Since she is mardu, you can also include the previously mentioned Ballot Broker for your voting/politics cards. Speaking of which, if you choose the queen you will have 15 of the previously mentioned cards to choose from - mentioned below:

For wincons, you have some very exciting options in the form of Captive Audience , Generous Gift + Demonic Pact , and Approach of the Second Sun . And, if you were to ever be in a 1v1 scenario Overwhelming Splendor outright cripples your opponent's combat damage based strategies. So, what do you think?

Great brewing! Loving this particular brand of jank. I used to run similar combos with Daring Thief to gift terrible artifacts & enchantments like Nefarious Lich Forbidden Crypt Immortal Coil and Demonic Pact . It was tough to assemble but exciting to pull off.

Black probably has the best cards that punish opponents if you want to at least embrace the theme and have cards along those lines I would suggest a black, red, blue color wheel because you can also do things like Demonic Pact + Harmless Offering or Donate and there is the newer card Captive Audience to slap on opponents then add things like Tree of Perdition + Triskaidekaphobia some ideas to add to any deck to fit the theme and you can go grixis staxs to further control the board examples War's Toll , Frozen AEther , Archfiend of Depravity , Crawlspace , if you want to really make them cry Ward of Bones

If I use the first 3 options on Demonic Pact and then give it to my opponent with Harmless Offering will they still have all of the options or just the last one?

I've always been interested in Demonic Pact ... do you think somthing like Steel Golem would be good in a deck like this or more on the wishful thinking side? Either way neat brew +1
