Painter's Servant + Grindstone can always get there, Basalt Monolith + Rings of Brighthearth +Outlet for infinite mana can do it too.

Parallax Wave + Opalescence +Etb-Creature goes infinite too.

Tons of easy infinite combos xD

Deck Update: 12/6/2019:

Took out Glasses of Urza for Illusionist's Bracers . Glasses are nice but the bracers allow me to use more abilities that interact with cards in the deck. King Crab for Talrand, Sky Summoner . King Crab is too expensive and the ability is nice but Talrand is just more useful in every stage of the game. The land swap for Merchant Scroll , Painter's Servant and Grindstone . 31 lands should be more than enough to power this deck. I added Merchant Scroll in order to allow me to fetch more utility or answers for things. Painter's Servant fits the theme behind the deck although Grindstone was really just put in for the cheeky win condition. Look at it as your big red button...

+1 my guy. @Your post

I wanted to second Necropotence , great combo, as well as the classic Painter's Servant / Grindstone .

Darkblast is probably playable.

Gravecrawler + Phyrexian Altar + Zombie... goes infinite.

Putrid Goblin / Lesser Masticore + Metallic Mimic + Sacrifice... also goes infinite... maybe this and Gravecrawler could push you into a soft Zombie Tribal subtheme?

Have you considered Living Death or Twilight's Call ?

Lifeline or Champion of Stray Souls are similar to a Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker build.

Phyrexian Reclamation is a great way to access your graveyard.

You could go crazy and try the Lich cards or maybe Forbidden Crypt .

Geth, Lord of the Vault

You really need more draw and to that end try Thought Gorger / Geier Reach Sanitarium / Null Profusion / Harvester of Souls

I would remove most of your milling artifacts to make room for some of the above, more draw, more removal, and 4-5 board wipes ( Boompile and Oblivion Stone effects are a must in monoblack). You have strong combos with Syr Konrad and I would focus on drawing/ tutoring into those while you control the board a bit more. With more interaction it'll be less of a glass cannon and more fun to play with and against.

Good luck!

Hi Feedlord117, Thank you for your comments.

Grindstone + Painter's Servant are not in the list because I am already running the Morality Shift combo, which is the same but with least cards needed and a bigger CMC.

Also, on its own, Painter's Servant is useless in this deck, I have no other synergy for switching the deck color. On the other hand Grindstone on his own is like a weak version of Altar of the Brood .

I still keep the idea in the back of my mind just in case one day I wanna try it.

Zur the Enchanter will always be one of my favorite commanders. Doomsday + Necropotence type build is how I play him. I also play food chain and Flash hulk. But my most fun decks I play are not really competitive.

The most fun decks I play are Boros Giant tribal. Win con being Godo and Helm of the Host . Also been playing with an mono blue shutdown deck with Llawan, Cephalid Empress + Painter's Servant . I also play Grindstone of course.

Hissp on Commanders by Power Level [EDH Tier List]

Hi ShaperSavant,

I'm not sure if this is the best place for these discussions or somewhere on discord but...I have some additional thoughts on Mid Power commanders that should be moved up:

  1. Zndrsplt, Eye of Wisdom + Okaun, Eye of Chaos -- This deck Coinzzzzz made it to the final pod of a cEDH tournament as reported on reddit last week. It's a 1-card combo with Zndrsplt + Frenetic Efreet . Here's another list that adopts a Polymorph strategy: Zndrsplt & Okaun - Polydox Scepter (PRIMER).

  2. Llawan, Cephalid Empress -- Not sure if this slipped under the radar amidst the dust kicked up by the Paradox ban, but LLawan + Painter's Servant locks all opponents out of casting creatures, evening through Cavern of Souls , including Commanders. Can then assemble a Grindstone combo or perhaps Scepter combo. Here's a Scepter-less list I came across: Painter Llawan.

  3. Kambal, Consul of Allocation -- He's a must-answer stax piece for many cEDH lists in the command zone. A High-power list Kambal's tax collection **LCL Playoff** recently won a tournament/league as reported on reddit 2 weeks ago, with about a 50/50 cEDH/high-power composition. Here's a list with a very different approach (and cEDH staples! Kambal's Pact - Vilis, Broker of Blood.

  4. Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle -- I just really like this primer Worship's Reward - Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle; seems better than Sram to me.

Thanks for your consideration!

Could put Traumatize in there as a combo piece with Fraying Sanity for a near instant win. Also Phenax, God of Deception and Eater of the Dead is also an instant win. Painter's Servant and Grindstone also work as a brilliant mill combo.

Gidgetimer on Choosing Piles with Lili

Off the top of my head, if you are on UR Painter and have:

Volcanic Island

Seat of the Synod


Grim Monolith (untapped)

Grindstone (tapped to make it so that the untapped monolith isn't an immediate combo)

Painter's Servant

2x Goblin Welder

The piles of

Goblin Welder , Grim Monolith , Painter's Servant

Goblin Welder , Grindstone , lands

Make it so that you can combo off the next turn with either pile. The piles of

2x Goblin Welder , Grindstone

Painter's Servant , mana

Make it so that the earliest you can combo with known information is 2 turns away. The difference that the extra turn makes to lili's controller is huge.
