Iltimau, Wildform Master

Legendary Creature - Human Shaman Warrior

At the beginning of your upkeep, you may exile a creature card from your hand that shares one or more colors with Iltimau, Wildform Master. If you do, draw a card.

: As an additional cost, pay the mana cost of any creature you own in exile that shares one or more colors with Iltimau, Wildform Master. Until end of turn, Iltimau, Wildform Master becomes a copy of that creature.


The idea here is that you can exile a powerful creature, while having near-endless use of it if Iltimau is your Commander. You can also combo together some awesome creatures if you have a ton of mana open, as you can stack them together similarly to Scion of the Ur-Dragon while they sit on the stack.

For example, if you have enough mana open you can choose Aurelia, the Warleader and Glistener Elf , or even Giant Adephage and Skyhunter Skirmisher , which is just gross as hell.

I'm wondering how Dispel main has worked for you, otherwise your list seems pretty sound. One thing I would recommend though is a way to fit in an amount of Inkmoth Nexus . The Phyrexian butterfly proves useful on turn three and four when your opponent has eight or nine poison counters but has just removed your Glistener Elf .

Carry on brewing fellow Phyrexian.

Caerwyn, I absolutely adore your concept though - and this does balance out the strict awful that this card brings (to opponents). In modern this card will rarely get up to 9 time counters - tops it'll be 4 or 5, but at that point you should have Blighted Agent or Glistener Elf swing with a Might of Oaks or whatever for the win. Just for my own clarification - the CMC is still , and this card is still an Enchantment? Or has it crossed over into Mono-black Artifact territory? Seems like magic has been moving in that direction anyway.

I would personally swap Pollenbright Druid with Ichorclaw Myr and swap Cystbearer with Glistener Elf because it makes it like 10 times faster.

the perfect opening hand here is 2 Forest 1 Glistener Elf 2 Groundswell 1 Apostle's Blessing 1 Mutagenic Growth and you can win by turn 2, so take what I said about pulling the blessing for blue stuff, with a grain of salt. if Wild Defiance was here I'd absolutely run Distortion Strike though, but that does slow the game too a turn 3/4 win over a possible turn 2 win.

The only thing I check in peoples decks (99.99% of the time) are their lands. Lands are my favorite part of magic, so I'm very particular about them. I'd recommend you add the following lands to your deck: Overgrown Tomb , Woodland Cemetery , Nurturing Peatland , Blooming Marsh , Verdant Catacombs , and Twilight Mire . I would also consider adding cards like Giant Growth , because if hypothetically you attacked with Glistener Elf , and played Giant Growth on it your opponent would get 4 infect instead of 1 for only 1 mana more. Otherwise though, nice! Infect is a great ability to build a deck around. If you found any of my suggestions useful I would appreciate it if you upvote my deck: A Deal With the Devil [EDH]. Good Luck on your Deck, and Have a Nice Day
