Glen Elendra Archmage Discussion

allanwlevy on Milldrotha (Muldrotha-Commander)

Huh, that's actually a really interesting combo I hadn't known about. I think it's very workable and cheaply costed, but with one catch. If you're going to run both this and Basalt Monolith + Mesmeric Orb , you're going to want a fair amount of artifact recursion. I put in two more pieces ( Buried Ruin and Rootwater Diver ) just to support the Orb combo. Creature-based combos are nice because they're easy to reanimate without Muldrotha, so definitely make sure you can reliably access your artifacts whether they're in the yard or not. Additionally, the more you focus on LabMan combos, the more important it is to protect those combos against spot removal and counters. If you get interrupted during that combo, you just lose. Good control pieces I've tried for this are Glen Elendra Archmage , Null Brooch , Spiketail Drakeling , and Sylvan Safekeeper .

You're very welcome! Hope your deck does well :)

Perhaps these options prove to be interesting for you:

Good luck and +1 :)

I have several suggestions for you, mostly budget friendly. I'll break it down by card function.

ETB's - Cloud of Faeries , Peregrine Drake , and Great Whale .

Draw - Beast Whisperer and Soul of the Harvest . This sort of card draw is amazing here, also consider Glimpse of Nature which is a bit more expensive but well worth it.

Board Protection - Draining Whelk , Heroic Intervention , and Glen Elendra Archmage .

Ramp - Sakura-Tribe Elder and Shaman of Forgotten Ways .

Bounce Enablers - Cloudstone Curio , Equilibrium , Temur Sabertooth , and Tidespout Tyrant . These enable you to re-use ETB/Cast effects.

Feel free to check out my list for ideas. Feedback, Upvotes, and/or Ideas on any of my decklists is appreciated. Animar, Gaea's Hemorrhoid

Hello @piratesthatpwn!

Thanks for your interest in the deck! Glad to hear that you’re enjoying it. Probably the easiest cut for Force is Foil, they occupy the same slot but force is easier to free cast. It isn’t unreasonable to run both, you may even consider just cutting Counterspell or Arcane Denial.

Mana Drain for sure cut Counterspell or Arcane Denial, just strict upgrade!

For Glen Elendra Archmage the cut is tougher, you could consider cutting Venser, Shaper Savant, or something utility wise like Shimmer Myr.

For Snapcaster I would either cut Archaeomancer orTorrential Gearhulk

@Polupus hey thanks for the interest in my deck! I love Kami although my brewing time has been spent elsewhere recently. I have made a few changes that I need to update the list on. By far my largest change has been adding Expropriate in that I pulled out of a different list.

I love all of your suggestions, and I also love how Kami can be built in so many ways and there are so many powerful cards! Metamorphic Alteration is an insane one - I love it and I’m going to find room to double up on Kami while also removing a commander. Pure beauty!

Kederekt Leviathan has always been on my short list. I tend to favor instant speed board wipes as they enable me to play draw go which is my preference. But honestly the card is so powerful it makes me want to break that rule whenever I consider him!

Nexus of Fate is 100% on my add list after it rotates out of standard. Just tailor made for this deck couldn’t agree more!

That last suggestion is a spicy one, wow! I dig it, I don’t know if I can find the cuts for it but I love finding out about awesome random combos like that so thanks for the suggestions!

Cuts: Both Darksteel and Blightsteel Colossus so you can keep more Annihilator.

Eldrazi Conscrption because no discount from Animar.

Fetilid for more efficient mana.

Balefire Dragon because Annihilator should keep the board pretty clear.

All 3 signets for mana ramp on creatures.

I'd also drop a few more high cmc creatures as well to help lower your curve.

Additions: Creature Ramp - Somberwald Sage, Shaman of Forgotten Ways, and Rishkar, Peema Renegade. Pir, Imaginative Rascal and Hardened Scales are kinda ramp here also.

I'd add Vizier of the Menagerie, it's pseudo draw and color fixing in one. Very powerful here.

Beastcaller Savant - Hastey mana dork that goes infinite like morph/eldrazi with Cloudstone Curio.

Stratus Dancer, Glen Elendra Archmage, and Heroic Intervention to protect your board.

Spellseeker to look up Glimpse of Nature, Cyclonic Rift, Heroic Intervention, etc. Doesn't need many targets when they're this good.

Haste enablers like Ogre Battledriver and Urabrask the Hidden

Hi there, I'm from the advertise your commander thread.

I used to have a Nin, the Pain Artist deck based on stealing and copying your opponents stuff. I always liked to win using your opponents cards, so its nice to see a deck with a similar theme.

I think your current build has a lot of room for optimization as there are many cards that have strictly or subjectively better counterparts. These are some suggestions for cards I would replace and what with:

I would probably drop the flicker subtheme you currently have because you dont run a lot of creatures and go down a few lands (37 should be fine) in favor of more draw (Rhystic Study & Mystic Remora are nice). Also, one of the good things about black is the access to tutors. By adding tutors you increase the consistency of your deck, as they effectively serve as an extra copy of all the other cards in your deck. Lim-Dul's Vault, Beseech the Queen and Dark Petition are some good relatively cheap ones. (If you want to invest a bit of money in it, Demonic Tutor and Vampiric Tutor are great.)

I hope this helps and good luck with deckbuilding!

PS. Dont forget to comment on the previously posted deck in the 'advertise your commander deck' thread. ;)

I need help making 1 cut so I can add Judith, the Scourge Diva when Ravnica Allegiance comes out. Granted this does add my first real infinite combo, which isn't really what I'm going for here. I have an infinite mana combo that is more incidental than anything and never got used as a combo due to lack of mana outlets.

4 card combo anyways. Judith, the Scourge Diva, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, Glen Elendra Archmage and any repeatable sac outlet. Sac Glen Elendra for days and ping your opponents to death.
