Grand Abolisher Discussion
3 days ago
Oh right I omega derped with Zur the Enchanter, totally forgot about his 3cmc limit when I wrote that because it's usually not very relevant.
I assumed as much for your painlands which is why I didn't comment on them. As for Mana Echoes with Eldrazi Displacer, I glossed over that interaction but I definitely can see it work fairly well. It may still end up being a bit slow but as you said, you don't play in a competitive environment so that doesn't matter much.
If you're wanting Ramunap Excavator as a cheap cleric, I feel like you would still get more mileage out of replacing it with something else. If you play against Blue at all, you could take Grand Abolisher. It protects you from popping off while not being too irritating to play against in a less-competitive group.
Doing your own thing is totally fair though, have fun with the deck!

Very cool build, +1! =D
A few suggestions! Estrid's Invocation & Mirrormade could both be useful with quite a few of your Stax and Pillow Fort effects. Maybe Karn, the Great Creator, Grand Abolisher, Linvala, Keeper of Silence, & Flawless Maneuver or Unbreakable Formation as well. =)

Thanks for the suggestion Peoni!
I have thought of putting back in Neheb, the Eternal and Aggravated Assault into the deck. The problem I actually had with Helm of the Host (aside from the fact that it was most definitely boring) is that by itself it was such a clunky, bad card. It is part of a combo, but it's either a boring "you win" button or a clunky equipment. While Neheb and Aggravated Assault (as well as the Hellkite Charger you mentioned) are better than the helm by itself, I tend to like any combo pieces I have to be good on their own. Aggravated Assault and Hellkite Charger have too low of a floor for my liking and Neheb just didn't work when I tried playing him (as much as I really wanted Neheb to work).
My current list does have one combo- that would be Underworld Breach, wheel effects, and Smothering Tithe. This lets me draw my deck, play most of it, cast Teferi's Protection, and then pass the turn with a Grand Abolisher ready (then I just kill everyone by attacking). The reason I like this one..... is because all the cards were so good on their own the combo was unintentional- I didn't realize I had it until I came up with it in a game.
So while I currently don't plan on running any Aggravated Assault combos, it's still in the back of my mind to revisit at some point. I do want to make Neheb, the Eternal work, so we'll see. Thanks for the suggestion!

Hey, if you want to take the combo route, maybe you should start protect it. Grand Abolisher , Autumn's Veil, Veil of Summer are great for that. Grand Abolisher can be easily tutored and reanimated in your build, ao it´s awesome!

Thanks for the comments KuzcosPoison! Cut Vindicate for the Nature's Claim, and Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons for Mangara, the Diplomat. Also switched out Ready / Willing for Eladamri's Call which should help fetch either answers like Containment Priest, or finishers like Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite or Mirror Entity. Definitely considering Destiny Spinner, will see what playtesting shows. I think Alms Collector is a bit too off-track for this deck (expensive/3 power). Grand Abolisher is definitely a good one, but recent spikes have it out of my price range :/. Crawlspace isn't bad, but I'm less worried about being hit wide, and more worried about being hit high by one or two big bois. Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist is good, but no way of ensuring she doesn't get killed when she attacks as she is a 3/2.

Baral, Chief of Compliance, Glen Elendra Archmage, Hall of Heliod's Generosity, Thornbite Staff, Grand Arbiter Augustin IV, Grand Abolisher, Aven Mindcensor, Narset, Parter of Veils and Ashiok, Dream Render are some cards that immediately comes to mind. I would build this deck with the purpose to suffocate my opponents entierly. Ah and also Deafening Silence and Decree of Silence with Solemnity.
Just be aware, your playgroup might hate you after game one tho...

You're not running too much removal so you might get stuck if you're not able to draw into those things through tymna triggers. Also considering you're running hushwing type effects, relying on your etb triggers for removal seems a little shortsighted, maybe consider cutting one or two things for a Nature's Claim, and I would cut vindicate for Beast Within or Generous Gift since the instant speed is probably more worthwhile. Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons also seems a bit out of place since there's no real support for her, might be more worthwhile running something a little more useful over her, the new Mangara of Corondor works to either incentivise people to slow down with spells or draws you some cards, also Alms Collector even though he's 3 power I've seen do work if people are drawing multiple cards per turn, especially since there's not much card draw outside of your commanders. Depending on if there's lots of blue at your table, Destiny Spinner or Grand Abolisher might be worth looking at since your deck relies on your commanders pretty heavily to be able to do damage/draw cards. For protection against other big boardstates, something like Crawlspace or Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist could come in handy
