Food Chain


Exile a creature you control: Add X mana of any one color to your mana pool, where X is the exiled creature's converted mana cost plus one. Spend this mana only to cast creature spells.

Demonic Consultation is a ballsy move to grab your Food Chain if you feel like being super risky :P

Well, Eldrazi processors are using the exile zone to fuel their abilities. Additionally, Delay is a seriously underrated counterspell. I have built the ProcEspers deck specifically for those interactions.

Cast from exile cards are normally used with Food Chain in legacy to combo off into infinite mana.

You can consider adding Demonic Consultation as well as Tainted Pact as a balls to the walls way of getting to your Food Chain ;D

Feel free to spam this page naturesnake420 I use this as a soundboard for testing my CSS pages haha.

Tainted Pact doesn't work with Uba Mask as it specifically says that it has to be exiled with Uba Mask in order to play it. I only use Tainted Pact with linear win cons, as it is a forbidden tutor for a reason. Usually in Prossh/Breya decks going for the Food Chain / Auriok Salvagers + Lion's Eye Diamond combo or Labman wins is where I would use the Pact.

Chains of Mephistopheles is great in stax and reanimation decks, not so great in control decks as usually we want asymmetrical value. In a different build I would say run it but not Lantern Control-esque builds.

Farycane on Yidris, Cascading Chaos

3 weeks ago

To be honest, I took it apart a while ago. It was fun most games, but people started to hating me out every time I played my chaos deck. I will rebuilt it soon (with changes, too) but maybe I won't tell the players that it is a Chaos deck. The worst game I had was an enchantment removal on my Possibility Storm while the Prosh player had a Food Chain out. Of course he won. That was the day I took the deck apart. Wasn't fun for me to be target #1 just because I randomize a few things.

The next deck may have more focus on Cascade and just a few Chaos elements in. I suggest not to play Grip of Chaos . Against many Decks it just takes too much time. Same for Thieves' Auction . People don't like it when something takes forever to do. ("Funny" sidenote: The same people often take 15min+ turns and don't win (in my playgroup))

The deck performed okayish. Even if it's Yidris as Commander, it's powerlevel is not even close to a strong or even competitive Deck. I often kicked player out with commander damage, bacause I couldn't do much more in a 15+ turn game. I would say it has a Winrate a little under 25% for 4 player games. But it can win.

I personally built this deck to make the games more funny. It worked quite often, til some players took it personal :D It's not built to perform very well (average cmc is >4, not enough ramp to cast things reliable. I will try to make this Deck better as soon as I rebuilt it. You may send your list, so I can get some new Ideas :D As mentioned, try to avoid cards that just take forever to resolve. Possibility Storm is good, because people get used to it and it isn't that slow to actually do it. At my playgroup in some games, it took longer to debate that the card takes too much time, than the card itself took time.

I hope you enjoy your chaos Deck! :)

multimedia to Food Chain i already thought about buying it but i have friends wich still play with precons so... yeah. But on the other hand at my lgs everybody has at least a stax or a combo deck so i think ill include it.

However im looking without a doubt to get my hands on skullclamp, the bushwackers, some of the tutors and the ramp you suggested so thanks for the help and the great suggestions!
