  6. if your are willing to spend this much money. Doubling Season but you can go without it

  2. Fumigate
  3. Wall of Reverence (with that avatar i mentioned eariler you double your life every end step)

Thanks for the comments, guys.

I considered running Hypergenesis in the deck, NyanNijet, but with all the card draw I'm giving out, especially if one player had a Reliquary Tower or similar and the others didn't, it would push the game forward too fast. I never considered putting Hive Mind in. /;-)

Thanks for the comment, Toxic_Starfish. Yeah, a lot of people have forgotten (if they ever knew) that this is a game after all, and is meant to be fun, especially EDH. This deck is just a gentle reminder.

Thanks for the affectionate +1, fragarach97.

I don't know if you'd actually like to have me in your playgroup, Yesterday. I can't play this deck that often. Every day can't be Christmas or Christmas loses its magic. I get requested to play this deck more often that I am willing to play it, but pulling the hippo out once in a while is a lot of fun.

I'm looking forward to adding Fractured Identity from the Commander 2017 set when it's available. Oh the possibilities!!

A fun combo I run in my version of this deck is Hive Mind and Hypergenesis. It makes the game silly

Errast on Cards that ramp your opponents?

4 weeks ago

Cards I can think of right now:

(Technically giving Lands)

Those are all the cards I can think of, but I'm sure there are plenty more to choose from. Although if you want to get janky with it, throw in a Hive Mind and every ramp spell you can find.

Funkydiscogod on Pact not to die

So, Hive Mind might be a fun way to instant kill the opponent. Easily splashable. With that in play, you have 3 cards that are lethal, and another 7 cards that are potentially lethal. Once it's in play, it's not like they can stop you, you'll just copy their answer.

Scrambleverse + Eye of the Storm + Hive Mind= the stack gets fucked and everyone concedes because the stack is an absolute mess.

I built a similar deck and have found Hive Mind , Mindmoil, and Coat of Arms quite helpfull
