Either donate Kill Switch or Unwinding Clock to a team mate, depending on how much they rely on artifacts themself.

Mana Vapors and Piracy keeps opponents out of the game. Donate an Isochron Scepter with Piracy to allow a team mate to use your mana on their turn. Artifact lands combine nicely with Unwinding Clock in this regard.

DrukenReaps on Need help with this lost ...

I dunno if Rayenous will make it viewable or even has the list still so I would start by looking over the following stolen from that forum and build from there.

KrazyCaley said "Rayenous has it.

There are multiple ways to do it, but they all involve variations on the same basic pattern.

Step 1 - Mindslaver + Academy Ruins lock.

Step 2 - Prevent your opponent and preferably also yourself from losing (since this procedure will take a long time) through the use of Platinum Angel or Abyssal Persecutor .

Step 3 - Donate a mechanism to your opponent whereby they can put cards they own into their deck. Rayenous used Research on an Isochron Scepter . My version of this deck used Death Wish (which works since our opponent can't lose the game while we have the Angel/Persecutor out), but Research is faster. Repeatedly have them add in cards until their entire collection is in the deck. Note that you will probably also need to Donate something that generates any color mana to your opponent as well.

Step 4 - Use Amulet of Quoz to convert their entire deck, which is now their entire collection, into their ante (true, we'd have to be playing with ante rules, which are now gone, but hey, that's the fun).

Step 5 - Blow up whatever thing you set up to prevent your opponent from losing.

Step 6 - Enjoy all your friend's Magic cards."

Now I don't foresee anyone agreeing to ante so you might leave that part out... Also a lot of people even in casual games will say that only a side board can be added in with wish cards and commander doesn't use a side board. So most people play with the idea that if you use wish cards you need to let them know ahead of time.

At this point I would be looking at a commander. Maybe? Could add in another color if you want... Parhaps use Lazav, Dimir Mastermind and mill their crazy sized library to the grave? Actually a better option might be The Mimeoplasm for the commander. Cards like Villainous Wealth would be great.

Great points! How about we explore a variety? Build a few versions?

I think the red one would be really fun, using some of the ideas already in that Kresh, Guru of Entropy deck and whatever else we can mastermind up.

seems like it has some pretty great potential. I love ClockworkSwordfish idea with Donate . Muldrotha could definitely be a fun commander there, though he's high cmc and doesn't have the . I wouldn't rule him out yet though. Oloro, Ageless Ascetic wins on flavour/synergy though.

And as for , I was already going to build the competitive version of my Ghave "Lord of Leaches" deck still focusing on Carnival of Souls . So, why don't I get that started and I'll invite you all to chime in? I already have a big card list for it and I can just compose the description to get the ideas thus far condensed and rolling.

Currently I feel the Aluren + Athreos, God of Passage is a great secondary focal point... I'm calling it "The Carousel" combo because

  1. the carousel is everyone's favourite ride at the carnival (flavour win!), and
  2. with one opponent low enough in life (from a Tree of Perdition for example), we can target them with Athreos triggers to cycle creatures battlefield to hand to battlefield, around and around triggering Carnival and all the other enter/exit the battlefield triggers.

It gets nuts when you think about having something like a Dark Prophecy out! Draw your deck and cast all your creatures... For free. I have a few other ideas with it.

What does everyone think?

Carnival of Souls is truly devastating with Donate .

Donate is pretty pricy but what about Quicksilver Fountain? It’s cruel and stays as long as they don’t have artifact removal

You can Donate to give them an island so islandwalk still works if you are playing a non-blue deck. If you just want creatures to get islandwalk, then use Piracy Charm.

Mulugruntz on Invincible?

Activated abilities of enchantments can still be activated. Can it be prevented?

Our permanents can still be exiled. Can it be prevented?

Can be made so that their costs require mana with Gloom.

Can destroy the opponent's artifacts and enchantments every turn (ours are indestructible) with Serenity.

May block players from casting/playing creatures/artifacts/enchantments/lands altogether by having Ward of Bones and putting some dummy creature tokens (with Phelddagrif, Dark Salvation or Varchild's War-Riders) on the opponent's battlefield, then making them enchantments (Enchanted Evening) + artifacts (Mycosynth Lattice) + land (??? may interfere with blood moon. Still doable by sacrificing all lands but one and giving that one to the opponent with Donate).

Beebles on Please have a seat

On the art of Donate there are Beebles sitting on the head of the annoyed wizard. Running that in this list would be a big flavor win towards your deck title: “Please have a seat!” ;)
