Klancik Yea that card seems good

Ericj1222 I think a couple of bombs is a good idea. 11 cmc is pretty high, but I did consider that card myself as it would be a good reanimation target. Sacrificing it to Greater Good would be cool too. I use Lord of Extinction as one of my bombs coz its only 5 cmc and is generally at least 15 power (sometines a lot more so is awesome to sac with Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord ).

I have nothing against it, but just I find that win condition super boring and I wanted to do something different.

Generally when I do combos I want to doing something fun, i.e. Glimpse of Nature + Paradox Engine in Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury or Lord of Extinction + Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord in Meren of Clan Nel Toth. I don't like instant "I win" combos like Bloom Tender + Derevi, Empyrial Tactician + Deadeye Navigator that just arbitrarily end the game.


Lotuslaz1 on Jarad, To the Graveyard! (Help please)

Two trains of thought for b/g decks jarad especially.

1: kill using graveyard shinnanigans eventually outvaluing anything your opponent can do ie Fleshbag Marauder,Grave Pact,Reanimate,Living Death

2: grow your board with beaters that you can sac for more damage later Lord of Extinction,Doomgape,Worldspine Wurm

Trying to ineffectively do an infinate is counterproductive either focuse on that having Miki as ur general or try focusing on your plan for this deck.

darksilver, thanks for the input man!!! Mill has kinda been my guilty pleasure since I started playing, so I do want to include it here as much as possible. I'm thinking about scavenging some more from my (Built) Lazav EDH deck, haven't looked into yet, but maybe some of the artifacts, and convert that mainly to control/shapeshifter. I should probably tell you, budget is a big thing, lol, otherwise Font of Fertility and Font of Fortunes wouldn't be making an appearance, the money cards are just ones I've picked up along the way. I actually picked up two Ravenous Chupacabra tonight, and one of them definitely made the switch you were suggesting. I am going to be switching Ramunap Excavator from my (Built) Jarad EDH deck to this for sure, and throw in Burgeoning as well (what are your thoughts on that?). I like Llanowar Scout because it does let me play extra lands, but are you thinking I have too many of these instances? Like with Courser of Kruphix? Or is scout just too weak for that still? The reason I am playing Courser is twofold, he is an enchantment creature, and I tried to get as many permanents with multiple types in here so I would always be able to maximize my commander's ability, and he lets me play stuff out of my library just like Vizier of the Menagerie (which really gives me 3 places to play all told). Speaking of multiple types on permanents, that's the same logic behind Etherium Sculptor and Kruphix, God of Horizons, although secondary to multiple types is that the sculptor can make some of my artifacts free (and I think I will be adding more now, like Horn of Greed which I just got, and whatever milling I decide to do) and Kruphix can net me a lot of mana over time, which man, I know I have an artifact that has X mill in it... But... what do you think of those two still? I guess let me find the other stuff and then see... I need to get a few Perpetual Timepiece for like three or four decks, but as of now I don't have any. On that note, I think I might take out Mirror-Mad Phantasm because you are right about him milling me out, I just wanted to use him so bad; what do you think? I kinda like Death's Approach in here because more targeted removal without qualifiers is nice, it gets around indestructible, only costs one mana, and it's an enchantment so it gives me more options there. That all being said I think I am going to put in Fleshbag Marauder since I pulled him from a pack tonight (literally no shop has had a version of him the past week), and after that are you still not liking approach? Also, no Shriekmaw has I sadly. Your comment about lack of instant speed interaction does strike a chord within me... might look into throwing in Alchemist's Refuge, though my Kumena deck will be sorry to see it go, lol. I do believe I am going to find a way to fit in Secrets of the Dead, because my hand needs to have cards as well, probably, and that's so awesome I wish I had thought of it before. As for Cyclonic Rift, and Beast Within... I really didn't want to move away from the permanent theme (also... I do not own a Rift, please do not doubt my seriousness as a commander player, lol), but I might actually be adding something I picked up today in the $.50 bin, Realms Uncharted. After looking over this again with your words, and some new thoughts, in my mind these are the cards I'm for sure going to be pulling: Villainous Wealth and Shambling Shell, those are just the for sure ones though. I think I might invest more into the creatures... sigh, part of me wants to bring over my Lord of Extinction, but it makes Jarad really. Thanks again though!!! And have I changed your mind any? I do know you may want to wait until I have made more chnages, but seeing it through your eyes has helped a lot already.

Thanks Last_Laugh for the suggestions!! I've made a number of changes after checking out your stuff and think that my deck has improved. However, there's a couple cards I like a decent amount, but I'm not sure if I should play them. What do you think about the following?

Ghoulcaller Gisa I feel like she's a good option to move some cards like Merciless Executioner and etc. back to the graveyard while also filling up the board with some bodies. Also blowing up Lord of Extinction and potentially getting a bunch of zombies seems pretty funny.

Seed Guardian I just like this guy and thought he could be nifty

Bonds of Mortality seemed interesting but almost too situational

Reef Worm seems like it can get you a decent amount of value, but not sure if I should run it. Could also be a good target for Jarad/Ghoulcaller

Not sure if Windfall is worth running, I've tried to stay away from the instant and sorceries since they're tougher to get back into hand.

Not sure if I should use Commander's Sphere or Lotus Petal

Also, have you considered cards to protect your graveyard from removal like the Perpetual Timepiece or Elixir of Immortality?

I also want to include Siren Stormtamer but can't figure out what to replace.

LandG0 on Muldrotha's Madhouse - No Infinite

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!
