so ive been usimg the play test to fight this against my Merry x-mas deck and boy does your deck fight back!

Armada Wurm + Mimic Vat gave me a run for my money with Trostani, Selesnya's Voice out. your deck was gaining 15 life a turn and producing so many damn wurms! I barely pulled out a win due to infect from Glistening Oil. so all and all i really like the deck and hope to keep seeing updates :)

Thanks for the suggestion, chadsansing. I don't know how heavy I want to go with Infect, because it would draw a lot more hate than Wither. I do think Glistening Oil is a really good addition to this deck.

Very cool Drana list.

Have you tested with Tainted Strike in addition to Glistening Oil? I also wonder if the other Lilies - particularly Liliana, Death's Majesty and Liliana, the Last Hope might be helpful additional recursion effects along with something like Dread Return or Phyrexian Reclamation. Maybe also see if Torment of Hailfire is any good?

Happy playing!

czarkingrex Thanks for your suggestions, i think another tutor and less reanimation is great. Also i will steal your Devoted Druid + Quillspike Combo, it just have to be fun :D

Carmasem Yeah you're right! I cutted the Infect Stuff besides Flesh-Eater Imp and Glistening Oil. The Imp alone is to heavy imo and Glistening Oil could help me start my combos.I added some Ramp Cards and thought about Harvest Season, seems good in a Token Deck but prbly to "late"

I thank you both for your Tips and Suggestions :)

Have you considered playing Whirlpool Warrior? He might be good for wheeling. Also, and I know it is a bit douchy Glistening Oil on Nekusar :)

Neotrup on Does Defang prevent the General's ...

No. A commander has to deal damage in order for it to count as commander damage. An important note is that the damage doesn't have to cause loss of life, so effects like Platinum Emperion, Worship, or Glistening Oil won't stop it from being commander damage, but things like Defang, Fog, or Spires of Orazca will.
