Players can't draw cards.
At the beginning of each player's draw step, that player loses 3 life, searches his or her library for a card, puts it into his or her hand, then shuffles his or her library.
Is a "general opinion" supposed to be an opinion about a general or a opinion in general?
The non-black possibilities are endless!
I agree with ChiefBell about Maralen being an unwise decision if there is an Island on the board. Not to mention every color has spot removal staples for cmc 3 of less. The best answer is probably loading up on Tutors.
I need tutors that cost 2 or less that can find an ad nauseum. I own a Demonic Tutor , Vampiric Tutor , and Cruel Tutor . I also own a plethora of unplayable tutors such as Diabolic Tutor , Increasing Ambition and Demonic Collusion . I called them unplayable due to not wanting to flip into something with cmc 4 or more with ad nauseum.
So Maralen of the Mornsong isn't the best general, and that's actually a good thing. I recently joined an EDH league where you have to commit to a General but not a decklist. My answer is going to be Child of Alara . With the Exploding Baby I can play Malfegor666, Shadowborn Scion (with an expanded Demon list!), and this deck with other gems such as Mystical Tutor and Gitaxian Probe . Maybe even slide in a Silence and Orim's Chant for extra protection.
Yawgmoth's Will will get a spot even though it costs 3.
I need to find a Scroll Rack .
Also. Unless your playing French rules, EDH is a multiplayer format, so I don't see how you're going to be able to kill everyone with a Tendrils of Agony .
It's a cool concept and I really like the ideabut I don't see it coherently working against 3 other players who realise that Maralen is bad news if you allow her to combo off.
