Misthollow Griffin Discussion

UPDATE: I need 23 cards cut for the strict amount of 100. However, this time around, there will be new rules exclusive to this deck for chopping:

1: Key pieces will not be cut regardless of Binary Speech or any kind of Tongue, verbal, physical, data, or some fourth way that doesn't exist. The Key pieces are:

  1. Riftsweeper
  2. Runic Repetition
  3. Pull from Eternity
  4. Squee, the Immortal , Misthollow Griffin , Eternal Scourge , & Food Chain
  5. Necropotence & Bag of Holding
  6. Torrent Elemental
  7. Void Maw
  8. Any card w/ Flashback that is especially great here.

2: I actually need some ideas for an Exile Based Doomsday Package; & all while keeping this balanced.

3: I actually wanted to revise the Landbase; Not for the 10/10/10 method, or the one I already presently have here, but from a way that I actually have not used at least twice now for Five Color.

4: I dunno if it'll work, but how does Animate Dead + Worldgorger Dragon work? Or is there a combo that fits this deck's purpose moreso; Exiling powerful cards just to bring them back through means of Exile Retrieval.

5: Not all the Flashback cards are good, I can acknowledge this for sure. So what aren't pulling their weight?

And that's it, actually. I'll add a Dragon, & a Maw after this post. I just need a combo for Worldgorger Dragon that complements this deck's themes, & the Doomsday Package centering on pure exile. Now I have one more job to do...

Yep, an "Exile Matters" Deck; though I think I went too far in this case. Stuff like Food Chain are in for stuff like Squee, the Immortal , Misthollow Griffin , & Eternal Scourge to fuel the mana, but I can't find enough stuff that exiles themselves to be reused. Basically, if the card says "Exile (Card Name with this Ability)" on the text, tell me why it needs to be there. Recently, Someone actually decided to use Manifest/Morph/Megamorph effects here for the sake of Inverter of Truth . I also have stuff like Eater of Days , & Leveler ; basically, stuff requiring ETB activations as drawbacks. Even worse, Riftsweeper is an ETB creature requiring this kind of ability; so stuff w/ "Creatures entering the battlefield don’t cause abilities to trigger." like Torpor Orb , Hushwing Gryff , & even Tocatli Honor Guard can't be used. Which is ironic as one theme of my Kykar, Wind's Fury Vorthos Deck is just doing anti-meta; so she can even say "NO" to ETB Triggers. I hope you can understand this BTW.

Recap:

  1. I need help finging more Cards that Self-Exiles itself to be used again.

  2. Awesome amounts of power, but it also negates everything else when using Anti ETB stuff like Torpor Orb & Hushwing Gryff . Any possible way I can still do ETB effects besides the ones that ends games for me VERY FAST, & prevent any opponent do the same?

Thanks for the help if you wish; I'm quite in a bind right now...

The first sliver is not only used as a sliver tribal commander. It is also the best cEDH food chain commander. You get out Food Chain and start casting/exiling/recasting Squee, the Immortal , Misthollow Griffin , or Eternal Scourge for infinite mana of all colors, then cast the first sliv from the command zone and exile it to food chain and cast it over and over again cascading into every nonland card in your deck. It is very spikey, but if you want your deck to he as good as you can get it, 5 color is the way to go with casting things from exile.

@bushido_man96: Don't get me wrong, the card kicks butt in a pinch. Although losing one life may not be so bad, basically having an Exiling Engine for spells means so few cards exist for this. But we've a problem w/ this as well; Riftsweeper is the only card in Simic's colors to use Exile Manipulation. Pull from Eternity is , Torrent Elemental wouldn't work as it only affects itself, Mirror of Fate is even worse as it's a worse Doomsday for 7 Exiled cards; but the rest of the library dies beyond death; Runic Repetition only works on Flashback spells, & Misthollow Griffin ? Not even what this deck wants. In such a case, this deck would need Void Maw ; but this isn't Sultai ; this is Simic.

Sorry for not limiting my post to 180 Unicode characters, but I was trying to do a supplemental explanation about this whole thing. Basically, all we have is Riftsweeper , but there are not enough stuff that can utilize exile retrieval as a target for that damned Elf Shaman. UNLESS... Unless I cut Rashmi for her, & find more effects that Exile themselves after use. THEN we can start cutting the quarks, & leptons; the smallest form of matter in our ethereal everything.

Apology No. 2 for going even further than before. Yeah, "Tell Obi-Wan: "I failed."" -Yoda after losing a fight with Darth Sidious

I'll contemplate Force of Will for now, until then, though, you literally made me want to do a deck focusing on Exile Retrieval; W/O Atraxa in the first place. Yep an actual Partners Commander Deck; but which two to use, I ponder...

Hey! The list is looking good! this is the version I made if you want to check it out for any ideas you have ---> Kool Aid, Triple Flavor I went with both the Flicker/Tribal themes, also running Food Chain + Squee, the Immortal / Misthollow Griffin / Eternal Scourge to then cast Omnath and repeat for infiiiinity damage, it is mostly jank, but if someone suits you or find anything you like, by any means:)

TPC on Big TT'ed Combo! (Turn 3 win) Thrasios Tymna [EDH]

1 month ago

Food Chain plus Misthollow Griffin or Eternal Scourge plus Aetherflux Reservoir or Walking Ballista is a consistent turn 3-4 combo. Mana is zero issue with this deck, as I can achieve infinite mana by T3, typically T4. So, I'd have the 3 card Food Chain package online as quickly as I would a Thrasios, Triton Hero plus Power Artifact or Mana Reflection plus Grim Monolith or Basalt Monolith 3 card Scry/draw, though Thrasios requires a 4th card to win. And so the FC combo is cheaper and more efficient. The other win cons are there to make drawing a win con with the Thrasios route more consistent should someone counter/exile one or two. Thrasios himself doesn't win the game, he needs something into which to dump that mana, he simply gets you to that something.

The rest of the deck is built around the slow game should I encounter a 4 man pod with lots of control, or if they know what's up and all gang up to hate on me haha. Though there are cards on my list to replace, such as Academy Rector plus Omniscience . Its just not consistent enough of a route to pursue. More Counter magic or creature removal could replace it, or a couple more big hitting creatures for when I go for the Dovescape long game.
