DoWell on Selvala's great journey

The Killer Queen [cEDH]

If there's anything specific I would suggest focusing on, it's the ramp. You need Sol Ring , Arbor Elf etc. Look at the 1 drop creatures, artifacts, and enchantment I have that produce mana.

Staff of Domination makes selvala go infinite with a creature that has 6 power.

Umbral Mantle make her infinite with a creature that has 5 power.

To make the deck efficient you need fast mana, big creature that are cheap. Just there to draw cards and ramp mana off of, like Phyrexian Dreadnought .

More things to draw cards like Rishkar's Expertise and Momentous Fall

More tutors like Shared Summons and Tooth and Nail

Look at Scryb Ranger , Quirion Ranger , and Great Oak Guardian they're great for spaming selvala's ability.

Regal Force and Temur Sabertooth are key. Especially sabertooth. With lots of (or infinite) mana you can spam a ton of abilities with him. Such as constantly casting regal to draw your library.

Also, Force of Vigor . Get it. Nothing is more satisfying than shutting people's turn 1 artifact ramp down before you even start your first turn. Literally ruins games.

Get you cmc way down. Bellow 3 or bust. It'll make your deck so much faster.

That's all I got. But go look at my selvala and give it some playtests. There are zero dead cards in that deck and it consistently runs like a machine. Everything serves it's purpose.

Would Great Oak Guardian work with Splinter Twin in addition to Kiki?

Fun stuff. Village Bell-Ringer and perhaps Great Oak Guardian may be of some interest to you as sort of another Intruder Alarm effect. Also, protection is key when playing this commander Spellskite and Sylvan Safekeeper have been mvps for me. You can check out my brew for some more ideas :) Great Oak Guardian cmc is a bit high for my tastes but I know some people like him for redundancy.

Nice Decklist, if you add cards like Intruder Alarm , Village Bell-Ringer , Sky Hussar & Great Oak Guardian you're going infinite with enough mana dorks.

Hey! Nice list! I have a few ideas from looking at it.

Happy gathering!

Craterhoof Behemoth , Finale of Devastation , Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite , and Great Oak Guardian can make for pretty nice finishers. Elesh is better with reanimation and actually works as an excellent hate piece if you can get it out early.

Chansamu:

Glad you love the deck, man! :D As for your flying problem, I can't say that I have one. My meta usually consists of fast combo decks that aim to win around turn 5-6 or heavy control and stax decks. The deck currently has the best possible suite for general creature control without compromising the combo and as an added side bonus Great Oak Guardian can also help if absolutely needed.

Furthermore, there are other precautions you can take, like the Thornweald Archer . You can also use Kraul Harpooner and Emerald Charm . Personally, I don't like the other guys cause they do nothing for the combo at hand.

As for the Hexproof, you have access to Lignify and Song of the Dryads which can be brought out via Genesis Hydra . However, this is only relevant when you're trying to wipe the field with a pesky Hexproof creature and you're trying to end with Shaman of Forgotten Ways .

If damage is that much of an issue you can still make some concessions for something like Spore Frog or Timbermare for killing blows or set up a Turbofrog with Eternal Witness / Skullwinder .

However, if your pod makes you the archenemy because you're playing Yeva Draw-Grow, you might not be in the right arena. This is a deck that should be matched with similarly strong decks that don't rely on damage/voltron-like strategies that can pummel this deck in archenemy-like situations. Though, I promise you this deck will still manage to pull through those situations if played correctly and patiently as is.

I hope this helps!
