Vergil_Redgrail on Selling Mayael the Anima EDH ...

1 week ago

As much as I hate to, I am selling my Mayael the Anima commander deck. While it is an EDH deck, if you purchase it, you are not obligated to keep it as one. You buy it, you do what you want with it. There is a lot of value here, and I need the money. If interested, inquire below. I am also selling a multitude of things in my binder. As long as it's not a piece for my Affinity deck, or Legacy Burn, you're welcome to make me an offer. Mayael For Sale

For what you're trying to do you might even like Mayael the Anima as a commander, which cheats out some real fatties.

Love seeing another Mayael the Anima deck and awesome job with the HP reference. So first act of business...ramp. With a deck that has such a high CMC, it needs more land/land producing cards. Overgrowth, Trace of Abundance, and Market Festival are cheap and effective.

Second, there are only 26 creatures in the deck that can be cheated in with Mayael the Anima. Nothing is worse than paying six land and having her effect to give you a dead draw.

Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre "cast" effect wont trigger as well. Unfortunately Mayael the Anima doesn't cast the creatures, however ETB effect will work such as Tyrant of Discord, Craterhoof Behemoth, and Terastodon are just a few examples.

And last but not least....your planeswalkers. With the reprinting of Domri Rade, you can pick one up for under five bucks. Arlinn Kord  Flip would also help with her haste ability and then after she flips, she can give everyone trample.

+1 from me and good luck!!

Awesome seeing another Mayael the Anima deck. A few pointers, Try to use more ramp. Green is the most versatile color when it comes to land advantage. Overgrowth, Fertile Ground, and Trace of Abundance are just some examples. Another walker you may want to add is Sarkhan Vol, he would do wonders in a deck like this. Here's my Mayael deck. He can not afford. Great success. +1 from me.

If you're interested, I have a prototype Mayael the Anima deck, Mayael the Poinsettia (Concept).

Animar is Certainly a great commander and can make eldarzi free with Ancestral Statue going infinite. Using something big like Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger or Walking Ballista which is ridiculous.

Trosani is more of a life-gain token thing. Pretty non-specific as to what the tokens are, as long as they're big. either stomp with your massive tokens, or win with something like Aetherflux Reservoir

Karador is a pretty solid abzan deck. Reanimator, some combos, and I mean you can make it angels or demons. Avacyn, Angel of Hope is a great addition that one bloom tender affords. She works in Trosani too.

Derevi is a combo/stax deck. one of the fastest stax commanders, and super efficient on cost as the game progresses. Hence why he's banned in 1v1s.

Kaalia is more of a gimmick commander, but the better angels and stuff the more powerful the deck is naturally. Although she's naturally crucial to getting stuff out, well her or Quicksilver Amulet. Without them the deck's crippled. It's like Mayael the Anima, the deck is really crippled without the commander in play.

This advice is for going full Human Tribal, so no soldiers and spirits.
