Ok, if you change your mind I have Ajani Unyielding, Ral Zarek, Garruk Wildspeaker, Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker and Sarkhan Unbroken which totals 34.50$. Which I am very interested in Ugin but understand you wanting to hold on to him.

Gideon, Champion of Justice

Tethys on Battle Nicol Bolas!

I got Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker out on the first turn of my first playtest. That alone deserves a +1

CinnaToastKrunch I agree about Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker being a solid fit in the deck. I want to get him! I think Intet, the Dreamer is a fun creature, but I haven't been able to get him going very consistently in my Animar deck.I have Meren in the deck because I originally had several sac-outlets, which allowed me to control how often things died. I also think that Mizzix of the Izmagnus and Meren of Clan Nel Toth work very well together. originally I had Ezuri, Claw of Progress in here as well to boost the experience counters. Now that you brought Meren up, I'm not sure that she(?) belongs in here afterall. However, it can be powerful recursion, and can bring back key creatures.I do like Mindswipe, I'll have to look at how it plays in this deck.

Do you see any other cards that might be a little weaker in this deck?

Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker is really good in this deck. I think Intet, the Dreamer would be beautiful in this deck also Dig Through Time. I'm really interested in your choice of using Meren! mind elaborating on it?

when it comes to counter spells I think Overwhelming Denial is good but maybe adding Mindswipe would also be good!

Austin_Smith_of_Cards on Thraximundar

Looks like tons of fun with plenty of interesting cards I've never seen before. Hex was a card I've always considered for EDH, so I have tons of respect for that inclusion.

That said, I'm not quite sure how the deck works. Does it durdle until you draw a big stompy creature and then make a splash on the board? Are you winning with commander damage through Thraximundar? I'm going to assume it's a goodstuff deck, and give a few suggestions.

Grave Titan is a hell of a beatstick and immediately makes his presence known when he hits the board. 10 power with no downside is incredible value, and he'll continue to churn out more zombie duders every time you swing in.

Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker is a titan of a card that blows up permanents, steals creatures, and god help your opponent who you point his ultimate at. Lots of fun within Grixis colors.

Tutor effects are crazy good with a 100-card singleton deck, so I recommend Sidisi, Undead Vizier as your tutor of choice. Because exploiting a creature has synergy with your commmander. Along those same lines, I suggest Diabolic Tutor.

As a budget way to ramp and fix your mana, I would run the three Signets in your colors; Dimir Signet, Rakdos Signet, and Izzet Signet. They're definitely EDH staple cards.

Phyrexian Arena is a card advantage engine with a downside so minimal it's not worth noticing (yay 40 starting life!).

Army of the Damned is a huge splashy effect that immediately draws out a boardwipe or opponents risk losing to your gigantic zombie horde. Also, it has flashback, so it takes two boardwipes to that's value.

Even if you don't choose to include Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker, symmetrical effects are so good in Commander I would run Dark Intimations anyway. Another decently powerful effect in your colors.

Happy brewing!
