Enchantment

Whenever a creature enters the battlefield under your control, you may pay {{2,R}}. If you do, that creature deals damage equal to its power to target creature or player.

Electropotence Discussion

TypicalTimmy on How to build better decks

Also, try to find cards that can fulfill as many roles as possible.

For example, if you are running a Dragon deck, Scourge of Valkas functions as both a Dragon and a removal engine.

Another example is Eldrazi Monument . If you are looking for anthems and protection, this card does both.

It is important to also ask yourself what is the honest role of your Commander.

Some Commanders drive the deck. All 99 cards should focus around them being on the board and working toward an end goal. For instance, Zurgo Helmsmasher and Ruhan of the Fomori both want nothing more than to attack each and every turn. This means they are PERFECT Voltron Commanders. A deck should be focused on draw, equipment, protection, and ramp.

Yet, Syr Gwyn, Hero of Ashvale also works as a supremely powerful Voltron Commander as she can bypass equip costs and comes with two powerful combat tricks already tacked onto her. But she's also a solid Tribal Commander because she has a built in draw engine as well. This means a Syr Gwyn deck should strike a balance between equipment and Knight tribal. As a result, equipment that cares about tribal synergy is strong here, such as Dragon Throne of Tarkir and Stoneforge Masterwork .

Then we get to Lathliss, Dragon Queen . She wants as many Dragons hitting the battlefield as often as possible. For a deck running her, you may want to cut back on disruption and go more for pure assault. Ramp and draw take precedence over disruption and protection. For her, Scourge of Valkas , Dragon Tempest , Impact Tremors , Purphoros, God of the Forge , Warstorm Surge , Sarkhan the Masterless , Electropotence and Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle all slot in perfectly as disruption.

The #1 main thing you should focus on is understanding WHAT your Commander WANTS to do. Then ask yourself;

  • Does the deck function without them on the battlefield?
  • If no, layer in protection and ramp to keep them out.
  • If yes, layer in synergy and draw to keep your boardstate growing.

You can definitely make Omnath, Locus of Rage competitive. I have a friend who plays it.

Ramp is your best friend. And Sac Outlets are your best friend along with some wrath effects.

Purphoros, God of the Forge works wonders in the deck, especially along side the staples of Avenger of Zendikar and Rampaging Baloths .

Cards that you need to make the deck function better are Explore type effects: Oracle of Mul Daya , Azusa, Lost but Seeking , Exploration , Explore , Enter the Unknown , Journey of Discovery , Mina and Denn, Wildborn , Summer Bloom , Wayward Swordtooth ... These work to great effect in getting the most out of Omnath's triggered ability and might hinder your opponents' plans of sweeping the board.

Also, you should be running more lands than the usual EDH deck because you want to be able to keep playing lands.

Recursion is also what will assist in the control metas: Regrowth , Eternal Witness , Den Protector , Greenwarden of Murasa , Recollect , The Mending of Dominaria ... These will help you maintain use of the cards that get removed. Also it allows you to let your general go to Graveyard and get it back to cast it for regular CMC.

Some form of protection is necessary: Heroic Intervention , Ranger's Guile , Blossoming Defense , Lightning Greaves ...

As for sac outlets, you have a great one in Goblin Bombardment and Greater Good and also Ashnod's Altar and Phyrexian Altar .

You could also use some triggers upon a creature entering the battlefield: Electropotence , Impact Tremors , In the Web of War , Mana Echoes , Warstorm Surge , Purphoros, God of the Forge , Colossal Majesty , Elemental Bond ...

And of course you could use some of the staples: Sylvan Library , Krosan Grip , Constant Mists , Beast Within , Word of Seizing ...

As for some sweepers: Chandra's Ignition and Star of Extinction are good ones. Hour of Devastation does some work. Insurrection is usually a good game finisher.

The world is your "oyster" good sir! So have at it. And happy shuffling. Hope this helps.

What about Brawl to deal damage to your opponent's creatures and gain control of them because of Admiral Beckett Brass? You could do the same with cards such as Electropotence, Fall of the Hammer, Tail Slash, etc.

I agree that Scapeshift is unlikely to be the one you want, since it implies a very different deck.

What about Devastating Summons instead? Ramp to 10, cast Electropotence, then Devastating Summons, pay for two triggers, to 20 the opponent?

Here's a random idea: could this be the deck Aggressive Mining belongs in? Now that we have Splendid Reclamation and The Mending of Dominaria, could this work?

Flameshadow Conjuring, Electropotence and Minion Reflector can utilize the mana you save in casting costs.

You are correct. There is also Warstorm Surge and Electropotence that don't help the opponent, but they are far more mana-intensive.

enpc on EDH infect

Flesh / Blood is a dumb finisher. Eat a creature from a graveyard, buffing one of your infect creatures. Then deal direct damage with the creature. Because Blood specifies that the damage source is the the creature, not the spell, the infect carries through. Soul's Fire is the same thign at instant speed.

You can also do the same kind of thing with Chandra's Ignition and Electropotence.

Meglonoth with infect makes a hell of a defensive line. Meglonoth without infect also makes a hell of a defensive line.
