Oloro, Ageless Ascetic Discussion

Another very cool gain and drain deck. This deck brought Authority of the Consuls to my attention, and I've added it to my own Orzhov gain and drain. Also putting a copy in the Esper Commander precon deck I'm tweaking with Oloro, Ageless Ascetic as general. Big +1!

Hello All!

I'm seeking the community's assistance for thoughts on how best to adjust to my current EDH meta. My LGS is rampant with various storm decks and while everyone usually has a good time, I think there is a collective consensus that it's getting dull to sit through match after match of Storm players taking ungodly long turns. So I am turning to the community to see what types of decks/cards you would recommend to combat this type of meta.

Right now one player runs 3 different storm decks:

Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip
Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge
Oloro, Ageless Ascetic (which is a Storm/Doomsday deck)

There are also at least two Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder decks running around too.

Yeah, no offense... You are not running Supreme Verdict/Wrath of God/Cyclonic Rift/etc. You would get WRECKED in almost any EDH group I play with. Child of Alara shenanigans, U/G control variants, and Tier 1's like Oloro, Ageless Ascetic would simply dominate you.

In the case I ever get to play Duel-Commander, like you do, I will totally consider the Kor Duelist, the Tempo and Boost is insane. Im my current meta though, we have a lifegainer Oloro, Ageless Ascetic, Animar, Soul of Elements and an Ezuri, Claw of Progress.

I, as of now, have no problems of getting the 8.5 into play and he usually stays there for quite some time and is only removed when someone is on the brink of dying to his damage. The main problem I' m currently facing is that my equipments (actually my whole artifact base) is destroyed over and over again, keeps being re-equipped to creatures that don't belong to me or my equipments just become creatures and thus fall off my beloved 8.5.

Anyway, I really do see your point and thank you for it, I just currently have other problems to deal with.

I don't understand what you mean by your mana alignment. I can't use the link but can you explain what it means?does having your commanders be Bruna, the Fading Light/Gisela, the Broken Blade to automatically get Brisela, Voice of Nightmares count as broken?

Also Oloro, Ageless Ascetic/Karlov of the Ghost Council sounds digusting

I've actually been thinking of some kind of artifact package, taking advantage of Silas Renn, Seeker Adept, and in that situation Expedition Map would be great and a strong encouragement to play some utility lands. I usually play this deck in a relatively stale playgroup, so we all know eachother's decks and there is no one running Homeward Paths apart from some of my own decks, that's why I didn't care much about some safeguard for it. It's just something I needed to point out if someone would pick up this deck's direction for themselves.

I've been thinking about Ashnod's Altar in this deck, but since I'm not comboing of with nothing in particular, it seemed a bit less relevant to me. The problem is that I run a lot of color restraining cards, and the colorless mana from the Altar might not prove that useful in most situations. I'd probably favour Phyrexian Altar over it, but with a bigger price tag and still not a huge upside, I'm tempted to keep postponing that inclusion. If there is some infinite sacrifice combo in the deck, yes, I would go for it, but again, that's not the deck's current build (which doesn't mean this is a better build, maybe the deck would benefit from that shift in strategy, but if I were to do that, I would have to start with the core of the deck and not the sac outlets alone)

The problem I feel this deck has is probably overcoming big life total discrepancies. I need to lower my life total actively on the early game, usually, but then if I face a deck like Oloro, Ageless Ascetic or Atraxa, Praetors' Voice, those decks gain tremendous ammounts of life and Marchesa can't live long enough to overcome that difference. On the other hand it seems harsh to include forms of life gain in the deck (I keep thinking of Wurmcoil Engine) since unless I'm already on the backfoot, lifegain actually hurts me. Maybe a Dethrone deck is just a poor choice in my particular playgroup and to make it work I need to make my deck generally worse in such a way that it's better prepared to answer lifegain than some other menaces (looking at Tainted Remedy, Erebos, God of the Dead and such), but I'm kinda reluctant to actively turn my deck into a sideboard lol

Anyway, that's enough rambling! Thanks a lot for your comment and suggestions. I'm glad you appreciated it!

Oloro, Ageless Ascetic for aggressive life gain and control. offers card draw, counters and some nice pillow fort type enchantments like Propaganda to keep your life total high. Paradox Haze gives you 4 life a turn. In no time you can "death star" people using Aetherflux Reservoir.
