I haven't been playing with or against this commnader yet. But it's one that floats on my list too.

Without looking at cuts, I would seriously consider these cards:

Enough food for thought :-)

Good luck!

zrob: Thanks for the comment! In order:

1) Stranglehold is in there, no complaints so far ;)

2) Palinchron + Phantasmal Image : Nah, I'd have to have too many lands out (conflicting with this deck's focus on mana rocks), and the two halves don't do much on their own for my deck.

3) Merfolk Looter + Intruder Alarm : Yeah, this only works with my commander out, and doesn't do much outside of that combo.

4) ...yeah, I probably should have Copy Artifact in here. My only reluctance was that I can't tutor it with my artifact tutors.

5) Blood Moon / Magus of the Moon / Back to Basics : I've considered moving to a more basic-centric list and running these plus Ruination , but we'll see if I ever decide to do that for real...

Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help.

These colors can take great advantage of Protean Hulk and Reveillark with Flash . Not with infinite combos which you don't want to play, but as value creature engines. Creatures such as Karmic Guide , Phyrexian Delver , Body Double , Phyrexian Metamorph , Phantasmal Image can reanimate or copy Hulk or Lark. Viscera Seer and Carrion Feeder are one drop sac outlets; one CMC is helpful when you can only search for six CMC of creatures with Hulk.

For your budget there's five cards that I suggest you play whatever direction you choose to go (one you're already playing):

These five cards are amazing repeatable draw or ramp in multiplayer Commander. These colors are great for tutors. For your budget consider adding these cards:

Demonic Tutor , Eladamri's Call and Diabolic Intent are also excellent.

When you get to the phase to add lands and more ramp consider:

I think Talismans are better than Signets since you can use a Talisman to make mana the turn you play it without needing another mana or land. Consider Talisman of Progress , Talisman of Unity and Talisman of Dominance ? If you're planning on playing ABUR Duals, Shock lands, Battle lands or combination of these then consider adding Farseek and Nature's Lore ? These two drop land ramp spells are helpful to search for and put a dual land onto the battlefield.

Good luck with your deck.

if the copy is entering play as it is made however, (for example a card that says "create a token copy", or you play a Phantasmal Image ) then those will still get the ETB of Elite Arcanist , allowing them to use the 2nd ability as well.

Have you considered some of the following cards? What are your thoughts on them?

Stranglehold -> Helps slow down or stop other faster combo decks while we assemble our wincons
Palinchron + Phantasmal Image -> Another way to get infinite mana and loot out our whole deck. Palinchron is expensive mana wise though.
Merfolk Looter + Intruder Alarm -> This one I can see as not good due to Intruder alarm being possibly a dead card.
Copy Artifact -> Can copy Isochron Scepter, other useful stuff.
Blood Moon / Magus of the Moon / Back to Basics -> Could be useful in slowing opponents down.

How was GPLA?

Could someone please explain why the angel of glory's rise combo is better than the Muldrotha combo. They both take the same amount of slots so all you are doing is switching out Muldrotha, the Gravetide , Phantasmal Image , and Necromancy for Angel of Glory's Rise , Eternal Witness , and Auriok Salvagers . In both combos there is only 1 not totally dead card in Phantasmal Image and Eternal Witness , so why is one combo preferable to the others?

KANIGAMI Sure thing they’re a little hard to follow

For the first combo: - play Muldrotha - play Lion's Eye Diamond and crack it for Blue. - play Phantasmal Image from the grave yard having it come in as a copy of Muldrotha. As it enters the battlefield you have to sacrifice one off the Muldrotha’s because Of the legendary rule.Now you are left with just the clone and are able to play a new set of permanents from your graveyard. - play Lion's Eye Diamond and crack it for Black. - play Animate Dead from the graveyard targeting Muldrotha which returns her to the battlefield and the legendary rule makes you sacrifice again. This time we’re going to sacrifice the clone so we get to play a new set of permanents again. - repeat the steps over and over allowing for infinite mana of all three colors and infinite storm.

Combo 2: - Have Muldrotha in play - play Lion's Eye Diamond and crack it for Blue. - play Deadeye Navigator having it soulpair with Muldrotha. - spend one blue and a colorless to blink Muldrotha allowing for the new instance of Muldrotha to play a new set of permanents. - play Lion's Eye Diamond and crack it for Blue and use two to blink Muldrotha. Eventually you will have made infinite blue mana allowing you to sacrifice the diamond for any other color and thus infinite mana of those colors too.

If you have any more questions about the combos feel free to ask them!
