So I imagine you guys have already talked to death about Thassa's Oracle but I was wondering does it make Mairsil, the Pretender enough stronger to go up a tier? The line of play is the same as with Laboratory Maniac except that now you just win at the end of it.
Get Mirror-Mad Phantasm into hand or graveyard and play Mairsil.
Mairsil uses mirror's ability which dumps the entire library into the graveyard.
Narco brings itself back, Pay the unearth for fatestiticher, pay the for gravecrawler. Fate could untap a land for you if needed.
Sac all of them to play dread return on thassa's oracle. ETB resolves and you win.
It does seem pretty vulnerable and is definitely a win or bust combo. Needs to go off.
I guess Thassa probably brought into question any deck that used Maniac... Thoughts? I'm not a competitive player so I'm just wandering around in the dark here ;)

ZendikariWol I understand that each color has its strengths and weaknesses. What I don't understand is why White's weaknesses are fundimentally important parts of the game that each other color has access to.
Green has the best ramp, I would also argue that it has the second best card draw. It is tied to creatures and lands, but that is barely a drawback.
Red can draw card by discarding first, but red also has many 'temporary' card draw effects like Light Up the Stage . Red also has plenty of ramp through ritual effects.
Black can definitely draw cards and ramp, usually at the cost of paying life. But over the years magic has definitely proven that life is a very small price to pay.
Blue has the best card draw. Blue also has access some to ramp. Some of it is tied to artifacts like Grand Architect and Urza, Lord High Artificer . They also have effects that can untap permenents like Fatestitcher and even more if you count cards like Rewind . It's not the best ramp, but it is there.
And now white. White's best card draw spells are Dawn of Hope , Mesa Enchantress and Mentor of the Meek . Those are good cards, but must be built around. These cards probably shouldn't be in the same deck together. Knight of the White Orchid and Kor Cartographer are white's best ramp spells and they are not great.
This is why White is not doing well in commander.
The only reason anyone ever gives as to why White can't draw or ramp is 'Color Pie'. A few years ago, Red couldn't draw either except through rummaging. Then WOTC introduced Commune with Lava in Khans block (I believe this was the first effect of its kind, I could be wrong). It immediately opened up a new avenue for red to gain card advantage without breaking the color pie and has since been well supported. Red is still a very aggressive color that wants to win quickly, but they now have to tools to compte in longer formats like commander.
There is a way to allow white the tools to compete with the other colors that doesn't break the color pie. Again, I think Ugin, the Ineffable 's +1 ability feels very white and could be a route to fix this problem. And if WOTC still doesn't want to do that, then they need to give White more stax effects like Spirit of the Labyrinth .

Colonel_Kink In my own opinion, the most consistent way to combo isn't after interaction is used, but whilst it's being used. Respond with Flash-Hulk in response to the counter-war over Isochron Scepter .
Rarely does an entire board run out of answers, rather, they run out of specific answers or the resources to use them, like if they are tapped out.
Now, separate from simply discussing individual deck's ability to compete, many, many more factors come into play.
In total, I believe the core things a deck needs can be simplified to 3 things:
How well it is tuned to its meta.
How well the pilot is able to judge tells, evaluate board states, play politics, memorize cards, sequence plays, and mulligan properly.
How efficient in card quality the deck is.
The first simply means whether or not the deck is easily hated out and how well it can hate out other decks in the game. If you want to play a Shimmer Zur Storm list, you want to be able to know the metagame doesn't run a large package of anti-storm cards like Damping Sphere , or too much in the way of anti-creature. You also need to know roughly the styles of decks it will face, to run proper interaction, like do I run Delay against Food Chain or Flusterstorm against counter-wars and storm builds?
The second is the pilot's skills. Obviously skill takes a major role in wins, but in cEDH there is an incredible amount of ceiling that can be reached that many people don't realize. From playing poker, you can easily tell how much tells have to do with reading opponents' hands. Tells such as if an opponent often layers cards from low-cmc front to high-cmc back, if they read cards that they don't know, and you can use this extra information to really get better winrates.
Additionally, while most cEDH players can properly sequence turns, see detailed lines, and know most played cards, I still see veterans just miss things that seem relatively obvious, but I realize are shortcutted so often that they aren't. I went recently against an Emry, Lurker of the Loch artifact storm build, who milled a Fatestitcher and Lotus Petal when it entered on turn two. An opponent on Tana and Tymna Blood Pod dropped a Trinisphere , and when it got back to the Emry player they dropped Mirran Spy and had 2 mana left. I knew they had infinite mana, but they didn't realize it.
They thought because of Trinisphere they couldn't loop Lotus Petal , Emry, Lucker of the Loch, and Mirran Spy , but because Fatestitcher could come back to tap Trinisphere down, it could. They passed, and because of a Windfall from me, we saw they had a Stroke of Genius , Mental Misstep , and some more protective elements needed to win. They just didn't know how Trinisphere worked, and never remembered the 'untapped' clause.
The last is simply saying to run a good deck with good cards. Often this implies if you have the other two you can get to the point where you are effective in a game, with the interaction and well-tuned wincon of the first point, and can close out the game.

Doing a little Brewing with Mairsil, the Pretender because I love commanders that let you use cards that don't see a lot of play. I've definitely come across some interesting stuff.
I'd like to share some of the interactions and also inquire about what others are thinking as far as efficiency and fun, or any other combos/interactions not mentioned.
There are ways to get around the "only once per turn" wording. This is probably the most confusing piece of decks based on this Commander. The most obvious choice is Quicksilver Elemental , allowing you to pay to essential get a new instance of an ability. I am lead to believe that flickering Mairsil will also reset this rule. But if this is wrong or there is a way to make it more clear (OR OTHER WAYS TO DO IT) please share.
Skill Borrower can basically be a Mairsil Lite
Loot Effects are excellent because Mairsil doesn't care if the target are in hand or in graveyard.
6. Pack Rat can be used to create copies of Mairsil, which one will die, but it can be used to evade and get additional uses of abilities.
7. Vector Asp ...
10. The Chain Veil ? Could Grixis Superfriends be a thing with a combo here? If anything you get the ability without the drawback.
11.And this is the big one. Mirror-Mad Phantasm . So the wording here is different, "a card named..." means we won't replace the name with Mairsil, so we will rummage through our deck looking for another Phantasm, that isn't there. So we are able to put our entire library into the graveyard. From here we can use a combo based around Narcomoeba , Bloodghast Fatestitcher , Dread Return , Laboratory Maniac , and flashback Deep Analysis for the win. It's a little janky, but it is essentially a 2 card combo with a little support.
12.Aside from that, Necrotic Ooze would love all these activated abilities in the graveyard.
Again I'm looking to provide some clarity, for others and myself, on good ways to take this commander. If anything I've shared is wrong or there are better ways to do it, please let everyone know!
