xaarvaxus Thanks! Great suggestions.

I have already removed Knight of the Reliquary.

And you're 100% right - Glowrider does not belong here. I'm not sure what I was thinking in keeping it.

As for Ant Queen & Soul of Theros, I am cutting both. I think my original plan that included them is long gone. On that note, I'll also be cutting Fleetfoot Panther. Wolfbriar Elemental is also getting the ax.

I am adding Beast Whisperer and considering Knight of Autumn.

Thanks for all of the suggestions.

No Primal Surge? This deck seems primed for it.

Almost all of your cuts will probably come from creatures and I think you should prioritize ones that don't have an ETB, ie: Ant Queen & Soul of Theros. I'd cut some of your 'bounce your own creature' ETB's, Fleetfoot Panther and Whitemane Lion just aren't exciting creatures and they usually aren't things you'll want to grab off Genesis Wave

Knight of the Reliquary doesn't have a lot of targets to fetch and won't get huge quick as the deck looks like it will be keeping land in play and not a lot will hit the graveyard other than via the Knight's own ability. Maybe cut your worst mana dork?

Glowrider seems a bit out of place here. Probably not bad if you do hit it but its not really a theme/focus of the deck. Gigantomancer is expensive and fragile. Luminarch Ascension also seems a bit misplaced as it feels more of a pillowfort card to me. Wolfbriar Elemental won't do anything early or off Genesis Wave so I'd cut it as well.

Beast Whisperer is important redundancy to go with Soul of the Harvest and Primordial Sage as this will probably be your most consistent form of card draw. Knight of Autumn seems like a good fit in here as well. Sorry to suggest new cards when you're looking to make cuts...

You also have more hubs that you could flag so that more people will come across your deck while searching; 'Selesnya', etc

SynergyBuild on Commanders by Power Level [EDH Tier List]

Aphoticate Jeleva is probably the best pure storm deck, but I am not a fan in tier 1, it is relatively consistent, yes, but I doubt that alone is what is cared about. I just think after playtesting the deck a lot, it falls to a lot of stax really hard, moreso than other combo decks, almost any stax hits it, from Null Rod, Thorn of Amethyst, Sphere of Resistance, Stony Silence, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Arcane Laboratory, Vryn Wingmare, Lodestone Golem, Armageddon, Static Orb, Stasis, Winter Orb, Rule of Law, Eidolon of Rhetoric, Notion Thief, Spirit of the Labyrinth, Ethersworn Canonist, Glowrider, Chains of Mephistopheles, Rest in Peace, Grafdigger's Cage, Leyline of the Void, Chalice of the Void, Trinisphere, Oppression, Bottomless Pit, Liliana of the Veil, etc.

Tons of hate hurts storm waay more than other decks, as they try to abuse the game the most, the game's anti-abusers hurt it the most in response.

@ShaperSavant Nice one^^,

In short: I never said I invented the concept of Derevi Stax but you wouldn't know that because you never even looked at the primer properly but that's okay I know it's better than the kids' copy primer!...

  • "Derevi is not a tier 1 strategy, so the title of your list would be misleading to players."

It's one of the better Stax decks out there together with blood pod and such. So in a sense, it's above all the other Stax decks even though Tiers are a mere illusion in this dataless CEDH world... and without that Data, you can only get to what you've done with your list and that's fine!!!

Also, I don't see tier 1 in the title anywhere so?

You're joking, right? These aren't necessary at all and have cute interactions sure but aren't fully game-breaking auto-inclusions for what this deck tries to do at all so let me correct you on that (doesn't border on incorrectness but rather borders on consistency with other aspects ;) ) ...


  • Counters/interaction at CMC 1 or less ...I can 50/50 agree on some of the counters and interactions but 70% of the time you won't be able to play them either because of certain Staxy cards this deck might use don't you think?... Anyhow yes, they can be of use sometimes but I don't agree the deck suffers without them all the time...

  • Bountiful Promenade (I Still strongly disagree that lands like these are better than pain lands as the condition of you dying from a Painland is far less likely than ending up in a 1v1 with Derevi after a while... Both are equally ridiculous scenarios yet I still favor pain above bond... (Horizon Canopy is on the want list as I said 3 times already so yeah thanks for reading that as well!)


  • Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist, We have a lot of Selvala, Heart of the Wilds's and Yisan, the Wanderer Bard's here and there and other Stax decks (+ many more) that run creatures combo like Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and others too. I don't see how you can claim it's casual as you have no clue what my few different meta plays... and I do have an entire sideboard if I go to other stores or know that the league I play in is filled with a certain playstyle... but yeah you definitely read my primer (press X to doubt)! Mirri is still a flex card with the amount of creature combo that might be out there...

  • Meekstone, Again I play in a huge league and people from all kinds of backgrounds with different playstyles join and try stuff so I am versatile and consistent (even with winning)... So if in a Multiplayer game or 2 headed giant game someone is a bit less invested into top-end Cedh and runs something than can bash trough (for example at the start of the pairings you might meet these decks as the first round is randomized) this still is handy regardless of the perfect world were your playing against only competitive EDH decks which do not always appear 100% on a tournament point of view as that is unpredictable, and it's plain stupid to claim a card makes the entire meta I play in casual... more than 100 people joined the league so far... Eventually, you face off against something you wouldn't expect... At the end you most of the time have a table filled with Cedh players going for first place and a table filled with the lower power decks and casuals as they never play as consistent... (Time limit we use is the same as any other official FNM or tournament so jank that would last dozens of hours isn't seen as much either, and when time is called you only get a 4-5 [don't remember exactly] turns starting at active player until someone ends it or they draw scoring last place of the pod with everyone who had a draw as well...)

  • Selvala, Explorer Returned, (I was testing her for a long while and I mostly test cards for a month or two before I decide to keep or ship, though I removed her before you even replied so????)


Seems like you don't know how this deck really works, apart from the "shaman" these cards create soft locks and aren't at all slow... soft locks become hard locks... having a variety of these creates consistency and bodies for Derevi triggers.


As it stands, I do not wish to be added if a condescending view is given upon a deck without first of all even looking at the primer and claiming 12 pages long (yes you didn't read it) isn't as good as the two blocks of text the other kids copypasta has... Secondly claiming things you have no idea about and calling things casual is pretty low and wrong if you don't know how Derevi Stax works that is okay, just don't claim things you are unsure about again!!! (this makes me respect you less as a person who decides what goes on the list though as it is purely biased based of what you say and like more in your unknown meta) ...

Even though I feel like showing only the one deck isn't the way to show people the true potential or ideas that might be out there if I may add that! As I like the variety you offer with Thrasios and Tymna for example... Although a lot of different meta exist which you don't seem to grasp at all yet for Stax that is... so again some meta might see more of this or that but on a league that's a season long were I made the top 3 last season with 2 fewer tournaments played than the first 2 I 'de say my consistency is huge...

(Weekly MP, 2HG and yes 1v1 is in it too and I play the Marchesa list on my tapped out but that's still only 1/3 of the way while more than 100 people joined and around 20-30 ish were consistently fighting for the top) (1v1 Uses MTGO 1v1 ban list and before that the duel so yea Derevi is banned there for good reason!)

Anyhow, I might test some of these cards, definitely not all of them that's for sure! but this deck is forever under construction and always worked on + added primer parts show up more consistently than Sigi updates any of his decks' xD... I'd say it surely gives a good viewpoint with it's added sideboard in the description on which ways you can go or want to go be it Cedh or just something high power but not casual at all...

Hey, I think Queen Marchesa is good with hatebears, opponent creature disruption. Drawing two cards a turn (draw step and end step) is very good for you when you have your opponents creatures locked down. White is one of the best colors in Commander for creature disruption. You could start with adding more cards that make it harder for your opponents to attack you since if your opponents can't attack you thus do combat damage to you, you don't lose the monarch. Ghostly Prison is great, but consider expanding on this effect?

Consider adding these cards:

Other hatebears/Stax to consider:

If you like these ideas I can further help you make cuts for some of these cards.

Good luck with your deck.

I actually work at the local game and hobby store, so I know I can pick up Carpet of Flowers and Winter Orb, because of your earliest suggestion, I did get my hands on a copy of Glowrider.

though I have not seen a Thorn of Amethyst cross my path.
