Obzedat's Aid Discussion

Godless Shrine is a good land for fetch lands. I wouldn't keep Meteorite, IMO it isn't worth it's effects. Trade it for Thran Dynamo or similar cards.

Planar Cleansing is good and more thorough, but having an Armageddon and/or Wrath of God would have faster wipes, but they are more specific. That's your call.

It sucks, but Obzedat's Aid is no longer legal in EDH. Don't really have a good suggestion besides Oversold Cemetery which isn't really a good option for how this deck runs.

All in all I love this deck and super jealous it isn't mine haha

Yo, Ghirapur Orrery is a new card that refills your hand when it's empty.

Also, Tormenting Voice and Cathartic Reunion help sculpt your hand and graveyard. Same with any of the Wheel of Fortune effects like Reforge the Soul.

I'd probably remove Obzedat's Aid. It's awesome but it's a tad expensive. Akroma, Angel of Fury is 1000 flavor points, but ultimately just a beatstick, unless cast from hand to take advantage of the can't be countered clause. Or if cast from Morph. I'd replace both of these cards with draw spells

PookandPie, that is extraordinarily helpful. Thank you for providing cut suggestions as well.

I love the idea of Devoted Druid, and Explosive Vegetation may very well be what comes out for him. (I too have never been a very big fan of Font of Fertility, but I usually include a lot of ramp, and for this deck I decided against using many mana-rocks, in favor of more permanent acceleration. It turns out low-cmc options for this are actually limited, hence my inclusion of Into the North as well. This is very different than I'm used to, and may all be adjusted after further experimentation)

Karmic Guide and Reveillark, I have mixed feelings on. Having both together is fantastic, individually they are useful, and because of their ability to recur the other you don't have to wait for both pieces to use one of them. My hesitation is that their combo potential requires both of them, a sac outlet other than my commander, (of which I run few), and a 4th piece, though there are many that would fit that slot. As far as your substitution suggestions, I could see removing the Butcher. I am partial to Obzedat's Aid, however, as it can recur any combo piece, be it artifact, enchantment, or creature. That said, I may slot those two out and try Reveillark and Karmic Guide for a few games, and see their effectiveness.

I don't know why I didn't include Illusionist's Bracers. I must find a spot.

Again, thank you. I'll test these cards before making any changes here, but it is all much appreciated.

Reverse the Sands is another one of those life-swap cards that fits into this list; plus it moves around ALL players' life totals, which is great for multiplayer.

Angel's Grace keeps you alive long enough to win with Near-Death Experience, or some other wincon.

ad nauseum is another powerful card advantage tool that will drain your life down quickly. Classically paired with Phyrexian Unlife, of course.

Obzedat's Aid is an incredibly powerful tech card that has an incredible amount of versatility. Use it to bring back your wincon or combo piece.

Looks like a lot of fun, I run a similar affect with Kusari-Gama in my voltron deck either your creature goes unblocked or wipe their board, I think the Kusari-Gama could be decent here. I'd also suggest Obzedat's Aid to get Death Pits of Rath back if it hits the graveyard.

Cool list!

With all your lovely enchantments have to suggest Sigil of the Empty Throne, Starfield of Nyx, Mesa Enchantress, Silent Sentinel and Crystal Chimes. Maybe Obzedat's Aid too.

I also have a Boros enchantment deck and an Orzhov CiP creature deckthat may give you even more ideas too.

I run a few cards in my superfriends deck that might be helpful in that case, as I have a pretty aggressive playgroup that knows what walkers can do. I had to learn to be prepared to lose at least one walker if I couldn't create enough blockers.

Awakening Zone is a good semi-budget card that creates chumps. Since you have 5 color, Sliver Queen would be a good producer too. I finally managed to get my hands on a Bitterblossom and that's been a real help too, cuz flyers, I see you've got that there. Definitely consider throwing Obzedat's Aid in as there is nothing more exciting than bringing back Karn Liberated at a discount.

I also run Moonsilver Spear cuz it's fun to slap on an eldrazi spawn and start pumping out angels. But that's just me.
