In making my Sygg, Tollfolk and Governor-Goddess Ephara Decks, I became very interested in turn-related effects, and that inspire this card, as well as Klothys, God of Destiny, who switches the way usually work, whereas most Gruul cards use green's might to accomplish red's free spirit, She uses Red's fury to express nature's law which green cares about.

Based on (Gerðr)[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ger%C3%B0r] in Kaldheim.


Khyrteh, Goddess of Polar Winter

Legendary Snow Creature - God

Protection from instants

You may cast Khyrteh, Goddess of Polar Winter

Whenever a player casts a spell at a time they couldn't cast a sorcery, that player loses 5 life.

At the beginning of your endstep, if you cast no spells this turn, search your library for a card, then shuffle your library and put that card on top of it and you gain 5 life.

2/10


This deck would use Eidolon of Rhetoric, Rule of Law, Curse of Exhaustion, Ethersworn Canonist, Oppression, Uba Mask, Tainted AEther, Desolation, Angelic Arbiter, Nullstone Gargoyle, and Painful Quandary effects to force my opponents to make difficult decisions. Bloodchief Ascension, Strionic Resonator, etc. would also give you more advantage from this ability.

Tax effects, like Thorn of Amethyst, Sphere of Resistance, Trinisphere, Lodestone Golem, Trinisphere, Nether Void, Glowrider, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Aura of Silence, Spelltithe Enforcer, Chancellor of the Annex and Feroz's Ban

Decree of Pain, Decree of Justice, Astral Drift, Death Pulse, Dirge of Dread, Eternal Dragon, Gempalm Avenger, Gempalm Polluter, Renewed Faith, Stir the Sands, Sunfire Balm and Abandoned Sarcophagus & Archfiend of Ifnir, also Oketra's Attendant, Undead Gladiator, Bloodsoaked Champion, Dread Wanderer, Nether Spirit, Nether Traitor, Reassembling Skeleton, Bloodghast, Angel of Sanctions,Anointer Priest, Sacred Cat, Dark Depths, Thespian's Stage, Shambling Vent, etc. to avoid 'casting' spells.

grand arbiter synergizes well... yeah...

I'm a stax player who got into the deck because of Death and Taxes, especially Mother of Runes, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben (Her printing got me into standard/formal play), Gaddock Teeg, and Iona, Shield of Emeria.

I really just made a card I wish existed...


I'd like to see another Kaldheim God!

Azeworai Thank you for the suggestions.

I have definitely considered before Dread Return and Unburial Rites , With this deck I don't usually have many creatures out at once, and I believe that Dread return's flashback may be too costly.

Glowrider and Vryn Wingmare seem very good, however I don't want to go too far into stax, and would rather have just enough to slow my enemies while I can build a decent board state.

I used to have Gonti, Lord of Luxury in this deck, however I felt it underperformed since a lot of the times I wouldn't get something so useful or maybe too expensive for how much mana I would have available, which is why I prefer Mindclaw Shaman , and Gray Merchant of Asphodel serves as another piece for the combo.

As for Gift of Immortality , Grand Coliseum , False Prophet and Sire Of Insanity are very likely being added. Thank you!

Taxes is always an enjoyable archetype. For one person at the table, at least.

For additional subjugation, I'd consider Glowrider and Vryn Wingmare

Dread Return and Unburial Rites can give the deck more reanimation, even when they are milled over.

Gift of Immortality actually goes infinite with Sun Titan and a sacrifice outlet, so that's something to consider.

You have the Reveillark + Karmic Guide loop implemented into the deck, along with Murderous Redcap as a finisher, but Gonti, Lord of Luxury can fulfill the same role of ending the game whilst having more utility on the early turns.

If budget is no concern, Yawgmoth, Thran Physician , Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker , and Smuggler's Copter are all fantastic.

For a deck with thirty-five lands, Temple of the False God seems slightly hopeful and inconsistent. You mentioned difficulty with coloured mana in the deck description, so Grand Coliseum could be fine.

False Prophet has always been one of the single strongest cards in my Alesha deck, so I would include it.

At last, Sire Of Insanity can lock down the entire game in your favor. It leaves your opponents out of solid answers for your board and leaves the way to triumph.

That is all, my liege.

For my own decklists on the archetype, here you are if you wish to peruse: Alesha, Grave Engine Within the Confines of Law

Fare thee well and rejoice in crushing them all.

Alright, the single most glaring issue here is that you're running Razaketh but you don't have a Razaketh package to win. Normally in competitive decks, Razaketh is used to instantly assemble a combo to win after coming into play, off of the neat tools Life and Lion's Eye Diamond . While its a fantastic combo, LED is some serious $$$, and Razaketh is going to enter and potato for you here. I'd cut it

Second, you're suffering from trying to run too many things. There's simply no reason to have Ghave + Raza + Hulk + saffi/titan + kiki combo. Blood Pod is primarily a stax deck, so its much better to hit your stride on controlling the table than try to race the other (faster) combo decks. It will also free up a lot of slots. You should slim it down to just kiki combo, and up stax pieces. Look at Root Maze and other cards that come down on turn 1/2 and will slow extremely fast decks. Manglehorn is 3 CMC but its stax stapled to removal so its extremely worth considering. You also need to up your hatebear count, because currently you aren't really slowing the combo decks like you need to, just disrupting their mana. Look at Leonin Arbiter Eidolon of Rhetoric Spirit of the Labyrinth Glowrider and ofc both Thalias.

Third, anything over 3 CMC you should cast a real critical eye towards. You're trying to hit the board fast and strangle other players out before they get a strong board presence. Having expensive CMC cards is a double whammy, you aren't playing them early, and if it was different card you COULD be playing that card instead. I'm really looking at Doubling Season Ghoulcaller Ghisa Chainer, Nightmare Adept

Next, cut out utility dorks you don't need. Goodbye Soul Warden Magus of the Wheel Loyal Retainers . If you want life run Serra Ascendant instead. You shouldn't be trying to refill your opponents hands while you're staxing them out with Magus (plus its costing you 5 mana you COULD be doing something else). Loyal Retainers is slow and a meme outside combos, run Life in its place if you are looking for more resurrection effects.

Fourth, add more removal. If you add a creature based piece of removal like Caustic Caterpillar or Qasali Pridemage , all your creature tutors CAN double as removal.

TL;DR pull out expensive beater shiz and add more stax! This is a stax deck!

I'd recommend the addition of Fleetfoot Panther , Kor Skyfisher , Ephara, God of the Polis , Whitemane Lion , and/or Stonecloaker . Glimpse of Nature is banned. Glowrider is a cheaper Thorn of Amethyst for budget and drawing cards. Land-based ramp tends to be more defended against removal such as Vandalblast and Austere Command , so Kodama's Reach and Cultivate would be a worthy inclusion. Chulane himself is a massive target on board, so Soul of the Harvest and Primordial Sage are worthy backups. Rest in Peace could be replaced with Remorseful Cleric , but that's personal preference.

honfrusterlaudo on brimaz stax

Hhehehehe your list is very nice! Just what brimaz should be doing in a commander deck. I think that u should run Crucible of Worlds , Strip Mine and Wasteland , just to have another way of stax, and because u r running land explosions and Lotus Field . In addition to that, Blast Zone and Darksteel Citadel just fit pretty well. I like to run Alms Collector and Glowrider while staxing with white too, but i just dont know what to remove to put them in. The Crucible of Worlds enters in the Gilded Lotus place.

Hi Kiyomei,

Very nice deck you got there. Please, allow me to give some input as a fellow cEDH player. First off, I see all stax cards in your deck there is but very few removals. Hence, I kindly would like to share some input on balancing the decks versatility.

I hope this was insightful to you. And no, I am not playing Derevi myself ;) But I do actually play a lot against it.

Cheers, Danda
