SirFowler on Making Lazav work

12 hours ago

I'm trying to build a Lazav, the Multifarious deck and I want to make it work well, but I don't necessarily want to make it a combo deck. I already have plenty of combo decks and I feel like a lot of them play out the same. Make infinite mana and deal infinite damage with stuff like Torment of Hailfire/Exsanguinate. It works, but it gets old sometimes. I just want to keep it a voltron deck, but at the same time voltron isn't that great in commander so idk if I should go the combo route or not. Can anyone help? If it helps, my playgroup isn't really a competitive group, but at the same time they aren't strangers to competitive strategies from time to time.

Unlife on Lord Windgrace trouble figuring out ...

1 day ago

My own Lord Windgrace deck is a sort of toolbox, so it has a lot of interactions and synergies based around how effective and efficient my lands can be. Primarily I win through swinging with a bunch of creatures after dropping Craterhoof Behemoth, or occasionally ramping out everything and Exsanguinate the table. Shameless self promotion below:

One thing I might take out is Aetherflux Reservoir since it is the only source of life gain other than Exsanguinate, and your game plan dosen't seem to be all that focused on it.

A couple Add-ins would be, Fraying Sanity or Psychic Corrosion.

35 lands is also a lot, I suggest switching some of those out for another wheel effect such as Magus of the Wheel, or some more removal.

One last suggestion is to change out Mystic Remora for Rhystic Study

CannibalOranges on Zaxara's Xcellent Hydras

4 weeks ago

This deck is focused all around Zaxara, the Exemplary's triggered ability. Thus, maximizing X spells wherever possible.

Zaxara is an amazing commander that boasts not only an amazing triggered ability, but also the ability to tap for two mana. Using cards like Freed from the Real turn him into an infinite source of mana. Fortunately, since the deck is loaded with X spells, and hopefully enough card draw, there is no lack of ways to use that mana. Combine with Exsanguinate or Villainous Wealth to auto-win if not nearly so.

This is a deck I own in paper magic as well as play with Tabletop Simulator. I say this because you may feel that this deck is lacking a few specific cards that would really help this decklist, but I assure you those cards are not in here only because they were too expensive for me to purchase. Otherwise I'd add them. Doubling Season is a prime example. I made choices based upon card synergy with Zaxara, card power, and last but not least (in fact, most importantly) card cost. Already this deck cost nearly $200.00, but it could easily have cost far more. Please keep this in mind as you comment. If you have cards you suggest to add, consider how much that card would cost to add before (or while) you suggest it, as otherwise your commentary will not help with the building of this deck.

Thank you.

Hello Hayzay! I was playtesting your deck and I have some suggestions! Altar of Dementia a/o Exsanguinate a/o Torment of Hailfire to finish off your opponents!
