Guile

Creature — Elemental Incarnation

Guile can't be blocked except by three or more creatures.

If a spell or ability you control would counter a spell, instead exile that spell and you may play that card without paying its mana cost.

When Guile is put into a graveyard from anywhere, shuffle it into its owner's library.

Other suggestion s would be not to run fetches in a mono-colored deck, and maybe I’m missing something but I can’t see how you are supposed to win, unless you want to swing with Guile .

Nice deck otherwise +1

How about Guile ?

Nice list! Seems really tight and refined overall!

Not zombies but when I ran Ertai I had the Guile + Dovescape combo and it worked really well. My deck was enchantments based, not zombie based. So I ran cards like Hatching Plans , Intruder Alarm and Opalescence .

Josu Vess, Lich Knight is a great late game zombie token generator. He actually just won me a game a few weeks ago paired up with Gempalm Polluter . Gray Merchant of Asphodel is a sweet zombie too if you’re running enough devotion.

Shout out to Shepherd of Rot possibly my favorite zombie card ever, and if it hasnt happened to you yet—get ready. He’s been the reason I’ve been the cause for many tied games!

i personally would up the wincons a bit.

you could Mass Polymorph / Polymorph / etc. into combo pieces like for example Palinchron or just some finishers like Blightsteel Colossus or Guile . Did you think of Docent of Perfection  Flip and Stormtide Leviathan ? They did great work for me.

Also artifact-ramp and while we're there you could also use scepter + dramatic reversal and Paradox Engine or some other ways to create infinite mana. Either way you need an Isochron Scepter . If you're going for the combo route, you might want to add tutors like Fabricate or Muddle the Mixture .

If your goal is to go for plain Drake spam, there's options for that too. Coat of Arms Door of Destinies the before mentioned leviathan, even Runechanter's Pike or Sphinx-Bone Wand .

Whatever you do, you'll want more Mana, to interact ( Extraplanar Lens Sapphire Medallion ) and your cantrips and card draw more at instant-speed, so you can react to what is happening. you are heavy into counterspells

Sounds like you're taking this apart, but what are your thoughts on Dovescape + Guile combo. Also, what are your feelings about Intruder Alarm ? Seems like that could work well with Ertai.

Also, I forgot to mention this, but Ethereal Usher is especially important since it fetches either half of the Guile / Dovescape combo.

THE reason to play Dovescape in EDH is the Guile lock, meaning you want enchantment tutors. You've picked an awkward commander to pair with Dovescape , though. If you want to build a UW enchantress deck, Taigam, unlike most other Monks of recent years, doesn't trigger off enchantments. Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest , Tuvasa the Sunlit , and Zur the Enchanter are better enchantment-themed commanders. I see token elements to the deck, as well. Consider Temmet, Vizier of Naktamun or Medomai the Ageless as a commander if you want to beat down. Finally, check out EDHREC. The themes tab at the top right of the main page will give you rec's for tokens, enchantress, pillowfort, whatever.

Killzun Thanks for the comments. I do like Unsubstantiate but I don't think it fits well with my deck. I think it takes up the slot of a spell that I want in the deck. This does absolutely work though. As for Rise from the Tides , I think that it suffers from the problem of not doing anything if there aren't spells in the GY. I personally play with folks who exile and shuffle GY's into libraries and this card will suffer from that. However, if you aren't seeing those things happening in your playgroup this card is great.

Lord_Europa thanks for the compliment! Guile is a great card. Since I do play some counterspell's it will absolutely be a bomb if it were out.

oliveoilonyaasscureshemorrhoid I took a look at your deck. Looks great. I think Noyan Dar can be built loads of ways that will work. Mine is absolutely not the end all be all. I just know that it does well and will win out of nowhere. I think the combo card you're looking for is Clockspinning . This absolutely does what you want. I have not play tested it but I know that Ender666666 has based on his deck They see me Roilin', I'm Shapin'....

Ender666666 I have not played it but my buddy does. So are you essentially just exiling one of your animated lands with Vanish into Memory to draw cards and then not discard lands since it just comes back as a land?
