EDIT I am noticing that I'm drawing too many Petitioners and that the deck does not solely rely on them. I removed (1) Persistent Petitioners and added (1) Rhystic Study .

I would increase number of Persistent Petitioners . Chance of drawing one seems low. Wouldn't want to lose just because you didn't draw one.

if only 1/4 of your deck is Persistent Petitioners , only 1/4 of your draws will be Persistent Petitioners . this means that on average, you won't see the 4 copies of it that you need for its effect, until you are 16 cards deep into your deck. that puts you at turn 9. if one gets blown up, you're lookin at turn 13 before you can use the effect again. and then you're just leaving yourself with no blockers.

i'd recommend looking into some multicolored spells. if a spell is both blue and white, your commander makes it cost 2 less.

if i'm being completely honest though, i'd actually not recommend playing mill at all. trying to mill through 3 opponents that each have 100 card decks is a nightmare, and you'd actually be helping any graveyard based strategies.

I have been working on a Persistent Petitioners Commander deck on here for a bit now. Even thought the card is allowed more then 1 of in a commander deck, the site will not let me set it off prototype because there are more than 1.

IS there anyway to change this?

I would toss in an Isochron Scepter and maybe a few more mana rocks so you can infinite untap Persistent Petitioners with your Dramatic Reversal if that's something you'd like. You also can make infinite mana with that and pay into things like Blue Sun's Zenith , Braingeyser , Explosion, Fascination , Prosperity , Skyscribing anything like that which is an entirely different direction but can still work well with your commander, which you can also run Electrodominance , Earthquake type cards and gives you more wincons. Not sure if any of that is helpful or if that's the direction you'd like to go with it.

What do you think is the right number of Persistent Petitioners ?

qzomak on Group Hug Adviser Mill

2 weeks ago

The idea started with gagging the power level of what a Persistent Petitioners should be. My play group largely consists of mostly highly tuned deck with power level around 8, so I want to build a deck that is able to survive and thrive in my group. But clearly a mill strategy is not that strong in EDH, so I went with a group hug mill route and play the politics. Since the difference in power at the beginning is so big, most players won't pay much attention to you. Plus mass card drawn is the most successful feel good strategy for group hug and with enchantments discouraging other player from targeting you and card draw in some way is just another to mill your opponents and with adviser mill to carry the deck in the final stretch of the race everything starting to take shape and form the basis of this deck. After play testing I realize I don’t need that many Persistent Petitioners because the best way to use petitioners is to hold it in your hand until in the last stretch when you see a opening or disrupt a player’s win con that has to do with the library therefore no need to cards like Bloodbond March , Wood Sage , Thrumming Stone etc. Instead I added counterspells for other’s win con disruption and my own jinky combo like Mindcrank Duskmantle Guildmage and Phyrexian Unlife Solemnity to increase my win percentage if I get to the final 1v1. This deck is ablt to get second play fairly consistantly and from time to time that mill strategy does work if game is longe. Overall I'm happy with what I got here and by sharing with the community helping ti get more feedback to improve and learn. Please work together and try to build the perfect Persistent Petitioners deck.
