Lord of Extinction Discussion

So after having a good look at your list I assume you want to avoid infinite combos, but you still need some finishers? I would suggest Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord + Lord of Extinction as a way to beat opponents down fast. I definitely wouldn't recommend Ad Nauseam with an av cmc of 3, and I don't love the exile part of Necropotence. How has Earthcraft been performing for you? I thought you might be a bit light on basics for it? Elephant Grass isn't great in my meta, but maybe it is for you. Also Avenger of Zendikar seems a bit lacking without Craterhoof Behemoth

I believe that the black cards are to appear later on the game, right? It seems that you prefer to make progress with green first. If it were the opposite i would recommend black cards that can take out adversary cards. But you dont seem to want to use black this way.

With which you gonna begin your game is always a hard decision, and not necessarily done by terms of color but strategy.

So black cards for later stages of the game:Corpsejack Menace, and Dark Impostor. A hell of a combination with your deck, i really would like to see it working.

Midrange black cards: Slitherhead, Lotleth Troll and Dreg Mangler.

And on maybeboard: Reaper of the Wilds, Lord of Extinction, The Gitrog Monster, and Canopy Cover.

Really awesome to think about this, the kind of strategy that may surprise you in a game. I believe i will plan a commander strategy based on this soon.

Hope it helped... Good luck!

Prime time is not edh legal and was banned many years ago. What about Fierce Empath. Certainly not as good as Sidisi but he looks like he can get many key creatures. Personally, I like to play Jarad with Lord of Extinction.

@Steaditup sewer nemesis is a great card, but I try not to have TOO many cards that's p/t relies on the graveyard (I already have Lord of Extinction, Golgari Grave-Troll, Bonehoard and Svogthos, the Restless Tomb). This means that I am not crippled if my or all graveyards are exiled. Thanks for the recommendation tho!

It depends on how competitive your meta is. In a competitive game, I think Sewer Nemesis and Lord of Extinction are too slow, but as part of a bigger, slightly clunkier combo with Jarad and similar power-matters cards they can be really sweet! Altar of Dementia and Lord of Extinction can basically kill someone by itself, so these combos can really pack a good "75% power level" punch!

What's Your opinion on running things like Sewer Nemesis or Lord of Extinction + Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord

I made a deck where this combo was one of the main win conditions and was thinking about putting it into a karador deck based on yours. Thanks!
