ZombieCat on Avacyn's Spirit Bomb |[Primer]|

Hiya ejoelgregory,

I have considered Smothering Tithe and personally, I feel that it's too slow for this build and my meta. It's relying on your opponent's for mana (1 mana per turn unless they have a draw engine, per opponent that doesn't pay) and I'd rather have Gilded Lotus since I can access 3 mana immediately. If my meta becomes more draw intensive then yes, Smothering Tithe would be an auto include.

Hi ZombieCat! Have you had considerations for Smothering Tithe ? I personally prefer it over Gilded Lotus . Either one as a lone source of ramp could possibly get a turn six Avacyn, but Smothering Tithe has the potential to get Avacyn out sooner. And if it doesn't, it slows down your opponents. Just a thought.

TCG-Player on Inclusive Rakdos Doesn't See Colour

Man, it really hurts me to see cards like Manalith and the Cluestones in commander. Also it seems to be common for decks to have way to little ramp (4 in this case). I would highly suggest running about 10 in every deck. In this deck, you might want to favor rocks that can help you cast Rakdos, Lord of Riots a turn early.
Cards that come to mind are:


There are also great colorless rocks, as well as rocks that don't help you cast Rakdos early, but that can give you big advanteges in the mid- to lategame. Please consider that you might not always be able to count on Rakdos's ability to cast your expensive creatures. If your commander gets stolen or permanently removed, you should have ways to not outright lose:

Hey Archwizard,

here we are, recieving a ban that hurts our deck quite a lot. I see that you changed your list into a storm based combo with Aetherflux + Paradoxical Outcome. My approach was shifitng more into control (see my List).

There are some cardchoices you are running I'm quite curious about. Gonna list them here:

Hey BS-T,

Thanks for your help. I've already added in, Hall of Heliod's Generosity . I'll probably keep in Homeward Path for now, as I haven't really played much at my LGS and have only seen a few decks.


Thanks again,

Hexaflexagon


Hey CasualCucumber,

Thanks for your comment. I don't like Mind's Eye because I feel it's too expensive for what it does, and I might be able to find better ways to draw cards consistently.

Thanks again,

Hexaflexagon


Hey K1ngMars,

Thanks for your comment. I agree with you, I'll be definitely be adding some more card draw. I already have Endless Atlas in the deck, and I'll consider Alhammarret's Archive . I like Alms Collector and Slate of Ancestry , so I'll be adding those if I can find space.

I see your point on Bontu's Monument , I'll take that out.

Thanks again,

Hexaflexagon


Hey enpc,

Thanks for your comment. My lifegain package is mainly for card draw, but I'll probably take most of it out for other cards. The only thing I would leave in would be Auriok Champion , The Soul Sisters, and Suture Priest . I'll probably also take out Dawn of Hope and Well of Lost Dreams , because they don't do much anymore.

Thanks again,

Hexaflexagon


Hey Nemesis,

Thanks for your comment. I agree with you and enpc, so I'll be taking out my lifegain package.

Thanks again,

Hexaflexagon

Nemesis on Angelhorde Invasion

I'm in agreement with enpc on the lifegain package - There really isn't much of a pay off here. If you want to keep it, I'd include a couple cards that would act as wincons to benefit off all the life gain like Aetherflux Reservoir or Felidar Sovereign .

As for other suggestions, I'd look at:

Emancipation Angel - angel, goes with your bounce sub-theme

Worn Powerstone - good colorless ramp

Gilded Lotus - good colored ramp

Mind's Eye - good card draw

Dusk - one part board wipe, one part brings back half your creatures.

Hedron Archive - more ramp with a side of card draw.
