Mistmeadow Witch Discussion
2 weeks ago
Eldrazi Displacer, Roon of the Hidden Realm, Mistmeadow Witch, Crystal Shard, Dissipation Field, AEther Adept, Reflector Mage, Man-o'-War, Tradewind Rider, Vedalken Mastermind, AEtherize, AEtherspouts, Evacuation, Cyclonic Rift, Devastation Tide, Deputy of Acquittals, and Brago, King Eternal are just a few suggestions.
Be wary of Eldrazi Displacer because he requires colorless mana to activate. Sounds like a cool idea with a bunch of ETB effects on your creatures so if your opponent is creature lite you will still be effective. Lavinia of the Tenth would be a cool general that would be obnoxious to go against. Especially against a deck that utilizes a bunch of mana dorks. Also good for the mirror match. Deadeye Navigator is a total must. I know someone else mentioned him, but if you do get him on the board he's so broken. Another idea would be to play Mimic Vat having recurring creatures of you or your opponents sounds legit.

xemnas731 yeah I also want to run t as stax, but as a sideboard, so I can adjust the deck according to the meta. Panharmonicon got tested a lot(as you can read in the updates if you will), but I cut it, because it is a bit of a win more card. At 4 cmc I want it to do something, but it really doesn't. Either I play it at an empty board where it does nothing, or I hold it in hand and play it on a board where I can blink. In this state I'd rather use me resources to protect what I have(eg. having mana open of a Ghostway) than doubling the stuff that already puts me ahead. In this current list this is a win more card. Battlesphere is too expensive for me. I thought about trying Displacer, but as I sometimes even lack the colorless mana for Thought-Knot Seer I don't think his ability being 1 mana cheaper than Mistmeadow Witch won't make it this much better. Lighthouse will come in as soon as I get my hand on one, as will Winding Canyons.
Ephara looks quite good, I will consider it for sure!

@NovoAevum: Yeah, I'd love to hear some tips from a Roon player(I guess that'd be his commander for a blink deck in these colors).
I had Mistmeadow Witch in the deck for a very long time, but I happened to cut her for Felidar Guardian. Having mana open for Mistmeadow witch truly is awesome since it makes you practically immune against most removal. However this deck in this no-stax version aims to be very quick in generating value, which means that I hardly ever have any mana open to use her. I can afford to lose some creatures much easier than the speed loss from not using mana. I had Leyline of Anticipation, Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir and Vedalken Orrery in the deck to compensate for that, but in the end it made the deck slower over all, so I cut them all for blink like Felidar Guardian.
Well of Ideas is cool and might go into my Braids deck, but is way to expensive for this deck, as is minds eye.
Whispersilk cloak was in there, but got cut for Open the Armory. It doesn't give haste and shroud sucks.
Thank you for your help as well. :)

+1 from the EDH Show your Deck.
Try Curse of the Swine instead of Polymorphist's Jest; it removes creatures permanently. I would keep in Narset Transcendent as it's just a really good Planeswalker. Same with Mistmeadow Witch; the blinking can be hugely advantageous.

My friend plays a blink GWU EDH precon deck so it's likely I'll ask him about some cards and perhaps have better suggestions for you at a later date. For now all I can suggest is Mistmeadow Witch. The blink doesn't happen until the end step and 4 is a bit expensive to do it but it can reoccur, plus isn't reliant on your commander getting damage across. Also she only costs 2 to play so there's that.
As for draw I can't suggest anything that helps with your mana cost really, I'd definitely put Rhystic Study in and take it out of the sideboard. It's cmc is quite expensive and it's a group hug but I play Well of Ideas in my mono blue. It adds good draw and additionally for you, it can be blinked. I also love Mind's Eye. Augury Owl is cool but there's probably better for you out there.
Whispersilk Cloak could also fit somewhere in the deck I feel.

I used to run a Ephara deck, recently changed it to a Brago deck for a change of pace. Faerie Artisans can get you more Ephara triggers and the copy ability can be fun. Mistmeadow Witch is a great way to get more flickers. Nevermaker is a great source of removal that basically steals a draw from your opponent. Stonehorn Dignitary is also great for stalling.
If you're looking for win cons, in my old Ephara deck, I often found it was easy to win with an indestructible 6/5 Commander with commander damage. Just slip in a Rogue's Passage. I also threw in an Inquisitor's Flail and Whirler Rogue, but the Rogue's Passage could easily replace one of your basic lands, Darksteel Citadel, or Faerie Conclave.
It's not budget, but Venser, the Sojourner is one of the best planeswalkers for EDH around and is perfect for a flicker deck. He's also another source for making Ephara unblockable.
Hope this helps.

Lemme first start off by saying I LOVE control decks. Not letting people resolve big threats pleases me yet I still love creatures with great utility (see Venser, Shaper Savant) and I'm trying to find a commander. I currently use Brago, King Eternal, but he actually gets hated out in my pod.... alot. I hardly find a time where I can cast him w/o him being killed then or the next turn. I also like infinite combos such as Deadeye Navigator + Peregrine Drake . So my question is, what commander sounds best to take his place? Here are 2 options I was mulling over:
Geist of Saint Traft: A cool card flavor wise but also power wise. His hexproof makes him hard to target and in a control deck he could be a powerful finisher I can use from the command zone. Sadly doesn't do much for combos.
Lavinia of the Tenth: Being pro red is good against one of my pods Land destruction Deretti deck so that's a plus. Also the detaining is good against so many creatures, especially when I can blink her with Mistmeadow Witch. Sadly she has no combo she's really a part of besides a soft board lock.
NOTE:There is ALSO the option of going mono blue. I just don't like how many cards I'll lose from my Brago deck by doing that, but it's also an option and with mono blue comes an easier landbase ( I don't have any fetches or shocks in brago).
All in all, I just REALLY don't wanna stay with Brago. People hate him and therefore hate me (mainly my brothers). Any help guys?

Hey, I like your deck. I have a similar "make the opponents punch each other to death"-deck with Vial Smasher and Sidar Kondo as the generals, and the political aspect is a lot of fun.
Anyway, from that experience I would like to suggest a couple of cards you may want to think about.
On the defensive side, Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker is an incredible rattlesnake. Dissipation Field is also OK, unless your meta has a lot of one-hit kills, in which case it can still convince them to save you for last. Less powerful but way more hilarious is Illusionist's Gambit.
If you want to play up the "please beat each other to death" angle, Fumiko the Lowblood, Grand Melee and since you're ramping so hard Avatar of Slaughter are all options to make things interesting quickly. Bitter Feud is also a flavourful card that doesn't risk harming you in any way and aids your opponents' demise.
If there's ever been a deck for it, this must be the one. Mercadia's Downfall will punish all of your opponents for those fancy lands you've been giving them, and you can play in on someone else's turn since it's attacking creatures and not yours. It's a one-time surprise, but I bet you most people will never have even heard of the card. Expanding on the theme, Sylvan Offering would work well both with this and with Gahiji.
Speaking of things being one-time, since you mention Treacherous Terrain as your main win condition, it might be nice to cast it multiple times. You have Archaeomancer and Eternal Witness already, but you could consider Izzet Chronarch, Mnemonic Wall and Anarchist for more castings. A more widely useful option is Greenwarden of Murasa. A more slow-and-steady plan could involve Charmbreaker Devils.
To cast it twice for more burst damage, you could include Riku of Two Reflections, who is also an all-round solid value guy, or cards like Dualcaster Mage or Meletis Charlatan. Again more funny than realistic, but these guys with Reins of Power can also let you make any two players' armies fight, with you and the defending player cooperating to have as many of both as possible killed.
I hope this gives you some ideas, at least. :)
