Lord of Extinction Discussion

dude, what are your thoughts on a 1x of Lord of Extinction, especially paired with Thought Scour?

I see.

My original build of the deck involved filully milling myself, casting Haakon, Stromgald Scourge and a Gravecrawler from the yard and using those and the Vengevine that they triggered to fire up a flashbacked Dread Return that would return a Dread Defiler that could then throw giant nonsense like a Lord of Extinction from my graveyard to their head.

After a while I realized this was just a lot more fragile and took a lot more mana than just having a single card, so now I have more space to run answers to graveyard hate, so I run Exsanguinate and Moonglove Extract as wincons.

Also worth mentioning: Worm Harvest goes infinite with Phyrexian Altar and Groundskeeper if you have enough lands in the graveyard.

landofMordor on Best Guild for Midrange/Control? EDIT: ...

TheEDHKid, the answer depends on what you mean by "control". Do you want fair control, where it's a 1-for-1 trade, you Canceling their Lord of Extinction or whatever? Or are you the kinda person to Armageddon? Fair control is usually U, UW, UR, or UB. "Mean" control almost always has white in it, because white is annoying like that.

Let's assume you want "fair" control, since I don't know many new players who are just itching to Armageddon. Now we get to the "combo" portion of your desired deck. Are you talking infinite combos like Deadeye Navigator and Palinchron? Or just jank combos like Zada, Hedron Grinder and Rally the Righteous? I personally prefer the jank stuff myself, because it makes for more fun multiplayer games.

If that description sounds like you, then we're narrowing in on some good guilds. In my opinion, GU (Simic) is perfect for a new player. It's straightforward, but still presents some cool deck building challenges. Rashmi, Eternities Crafter has been awesome in a deck I built called Crafting Eternities (Budget) (she's super fun, without being broken). However, there are also fun decks to be built with UR, like Melek, Izzet Paragon where you just cast a lot of spells. Or UB could be fun, though that restricts you a bit more.

Hope this helps! Mention me in the comments if I can do anything else for you! Feel free to check out my user page if you're looking for EDH decklists.

Phenax, God of Deception is good if you want to mill. Lazav, Dimir Mastermind is good if you are milling and he is hard to get rid of also if people are playing big eldrazi he does trigger because they have to hit the graveyard then are shuffled in. Lord of Extinction is really good also he just gets big and you can pick him with your commander and you can get his power as counters. Looks like you like playing with other peoples cards how about Silent-Blade Oni and Talent of the Telepath? Check mine out and see what you think I bet youll find some stuff you like also upvote +1 =).

I have some recommendations for you:

I choose to run the above cards to have more control over my discard because there is nothing more frustrating than dredging Animate Dead into your graveyard and then drawing a huge creature you can't cast.

These are all great main targets for The Mimeoplasm.

Your build doesn't very many fatty to exile to put couters on The Mimeoplasm.

All three are better than compulsion IMHO.

Drawing cards will win you games.

There are more ideas of course but those are what comes to mind right away for me. I'm basing my recommendations off of my own build, check it out when you have some time. You may find something else you like that I didn't mention.

LVL_666, quite the conundrum you have here, haha. I can help much more on the design then on the cards to put in the deck. I don't have experience with Yidris, cascade (other than Bloodbraid Elf) or storm. Your design is very strong which makes me want to suggest to complete the design first :), but if you want people to see the design of your page then the deck needs to also be good as well as unique. I would first work on completing the deck and then finish the design of the page. Good luck with your research.

What kind of budget are going for? Right now the total cost is only $75. One suggestion for the deck is Lord of Extinction as it could get very big since it looks at all graveyards for the number of cards in them. Tarmogoyf also. The experience of mill is not very player friendly for multiplayer Commander matches. If you're milling yourself it's completely different, maybe that would be a better direction to go with mill using cards that can get you back other cards from your graveyard like Eternal Witness. Planeswalkers are very good hits off cascade because they're such value cards. Using Planeswalkers with storm however I don't know if that's a good fit.

I played around briefly with your page design incorporating more red as well as breaking up the use of black. I did this by using a red flaming skull image as the background of the decklist area it kind of mimics the movement of the Yidris artwork. I also made the right side area where the graphs, deck stats and revisions are a dark grey color. The red skull wallpaper is a skull with scary teeth, but it's front facing instead of from side like the black and white skull image. The juxtaposition of the two skulls brings an interesting dynamic to the design.

I found the black and white skull image your using doing a google image search with "alien skull wallpaper". I too couldn't find any other images of the skull or the creature's body. It's unfortunate, but fine, really. If you really want to commission more drawings of the creature from the original artist go ahead, but I think you can make other images for your design work. Here's the CSS I added with comments of what each rule is doing.

Here's the red skull wallpaper.

/*reduce the transparency of the background to zero of the top jumbotron*/
well-jumbotron { background:rgba(30, 30, 30, 0); }

/*make right side area where graphs, deck stats and revisions a dark grey color*/
.col-md-4 .col-lg-3 { background-color:rgba(119,119,119,0.17); }

/*make red skull wallpaper the background of the decklist area*/
.col-sm-9 .well:first-child {

/*hide the white horizontal line after the decklist*/
.col-sm-9 .well:first-child hr { display:none; }

Sakuma on Jarad Ooze Combo

Necromantic Selection and Life's Finale are definitely powerful effects, just the mana cost is a bit steep. Tooth and Nail is my big mana bomb of choice. Find Triskelion and Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and win the game on the spot at instant speed.

Wight of Precinct Six types of creatures were in the original build, but I have gravitated more towards different combination focuses. I don't find myself casting Jarad too often. Lord of Extinction is the only holdout from the earlier versions.
