Form of the Dragon might be fun but risky!

Nice deck though! I love burn in edh! +1

Thanks, all helpful suggestions. I agree with the Mistveil Plains if I were basing my deck completely on Enduring Ideal, but that's a great idea, sometimes I draw Form of the Dragon and I have to wait them out.The last strategy you proposed seems amazing ( I love when no one can attack me ), which is why I should get Ensnaring Bridge and then use Peace of Mind. What do you think about Darksteel Reactor in an Atraxa, Preator's Voice EDH deck?

Enduring Ideal is probably about 10% more fun with Perplexing Chimera and Tel-Jilad Stylus. Just steal every spell they cast.

Alternatively, Enduring Ideal + Lunar Force + Mistveil Plains to counter every spell they cast.

Then, fetch Form of the Dragon + Archetype of Imagination and prevent all creatures from attacking you?

Or, instead of all that, just use Enduring Ideal to get Wound Reflection and Havoc Festival, and end the game.

If you just want to wait until they mill out, replace your Form of the Dragon with Peace of Mind and replace the New Benalia with Mistveil Plains. This way, if you draw a card you want, you discard it, put it on the bottom of your library, and then Ideal it up. Win by milling them out.

Or, combine Stony Silence with Mycosynth Lattice; nobody would be able to cast spells or activate abilities. If you had a Ghostly Prison, they can't attack you, either. Since nobody can do anything, win with anything that triggers on upkeep, like Darksteel Reactor.

That sounds pretty cool, I'll definitely use Enduring Ideal and Form of the Dragon. Sigil of the Empty Throne says 'Cast' and it's 5 mana. What if I splashed blue? Teferi's Moat?

I think mono- Pillowfort sounds like what you're looking for. Ghostly Prison, Gideon's Intervention, Runed Halo, and either Enduring Ideal fetching Form of the Dragon or Sigil of the Empty Throne to (eventually) win the game.

I have Solemnity in the sideboard and had considered it mainboard for the interaction with Phyrexian Unlife, I'm just weighing it up against removing Luminarch Ascension as it prevents the quest counters.

I'm a little nervous dropping to one win-condition (Form of the Dragon) against Surgical Extraction etc and other win conditions I've considered (Heliod, God of the Sun and Assemble the Legion) tend to not get through blockers.

Perhaps though game 1 is better suited to Phyrexian Unlife + Solemnity with the option to board in Luminarch Ascension or a second Form of the Dragon as the risk of losing all copies permanently is low enough.

Thanks for the suggestion.

I dont like it to much because of a few reasons:

  • Its a slow kill. I don't know if you are thinking about the loophole where you donate it with the CU on the stack and then refuse to pay it. This used to work but now it has been changed so that the player refusing to pay the CU get the library exiled.

  • It doesn't do anything if they have enchantment removal (where Illusions of Grandeur and Form of the Dragon does)

  • People seems to HATE getting their stuff exiled which may bring some hate which I would like to avoid :)

But thank you very much for the comment!!!!!!!! <3 Do you have experience with Zedruu yourself??
