Ertai, the Corrupted Discussion
2 months ago
Ill be honest here, but one of my loves is building weird decks around low tier commanders. Like one of my favorite commanders that Im running now is a token/enchantress/control deck using Ertai, the Corrupted. Or another Ive been loving is a boardwipe and kill spell heavy Mathas, Fiend Seeker.
The second I first learned about both cards, I was like "I gotta build this deck" cause the cards felt so out there and weird.

Combos/synergies for Treacherous Blessing ? EDHREC pointed out Korvold, Fae-Cursed King , Shattergang Brothers , Daxos the Returned & Cloudstone Curio , and I noticed Ertai, the Corrupted myself. Vraska, Golgari Queen & Doom Foretold works too. (Its native set obviously got several cards that can sacrifice it for profit as well.)

KayneMarco I have actually been pretty impressed with Ertai, the Corrupted . I rarely end up casting him, but having a counterspell in the command zone means I have to run far fewer protection spells in my deck and can focus more on developing the prison strategy.

You might like these: Intruder Alarm , Magewright's Stone , Nephalia Smuggler , Deadeye Navigator , Synod Sanctum , Sun Titan , Bastion Protector , Darksteel Plate , Shielded by Faith , Gift of Doom , Avacyn, Angel of Hope , Ertai, the Corrupted , Proteus Staff , Fatestitcher

The reason I chose Ertai, the Corrupted is because he was the best commander in the colors that wasn't Zur the Enchanter . Zur is likely a better commander, although not by much because all of the best lock pieces cost 4, but he has a huge negative reputation. Most games where a Zur player is involved turn into "kill the Zur player so the rest of us can play the game" and I don't really want my deck to draw the kind of hate before people even see the cards I play (that can wait until after I turn all the mono-red players mountains into plains). Ertai can also sacrifice enchantments so he lets me turn less than useful lock pieces into counterspells, and can also help protect a lock once I have it established.

Personally, I think Chromium is one of the better voltron commanders in edh. He’s got protection built right into him. Not including the fact he can’t be countered. I would leave him voltron. You just want to have ways of keeping your hand full and Necropotence is one of the best cards for that. Another big way to protect your entire board state would be to add Mycosynth Lattice to work with Padeem. If the lattice is out of your budget you could always use Memnarch to turn Padeem first and then any other non artifact you want to have protected. Could also use him to steal other ppls stuff as well. I also see you’re going with a control sub-theme as well. Linvala, Keeper of Silence would be a good fit for that. Another one to consider given all the token production you are capable of would be Ertai, the Corrupted giving you another way to counter stuff. The last thing I can think of is depending how consistent you want the deck to be, you are in the best colors for tutoring. Adding a few of those would give you more consistency.

Here are some of the cards my deck had that might help this deck
- Forgot the name of it, but the 6/6, 6 cmc Green Titan that lets you search for 2 lands and put them into play whenever green titan comes into play, an or when it attacks
Ertai Wizard and Ertai, the Corrupted are great counterspellers on creature aticks
Visara the Dreadful is a cheaper(cmc), better then Avatar of Woe.
Phage the Untouchable , is fun.
Platinum Angel is a colorless flying angel creature that makes it so that cant lose the game(A great way to cheat out Phage and not lose the game for doing so.)
Elvish Piper helps cheat out your creatures.
Dont forget your tutors.
Hell's Caretaker . Great way to cheat creatures into play.
