DrukenReaps on Commanders with Tons or Activated ...

1 week ago

I know you don't want black but the first thing I have to suggest is Mairsil, the Pretender he doesn't have any activated abilities himself but play him once and he becomes an AEtherling . Then just keep paying and he gets more and more abilities from more and more things. He doesn't really have too many of the normal staples either or at least not the way I've built. Sol ring of course and some other mana things but my Should I Pretend This Or That? is fairly unique.

There are some other commanders that include black that fit the activated ability thing really well but I'll restrain myself... Marath, Will of the Wild is crazy powerful. Zacama, Primal Calamity leads to some great shenanigans though he is a little slow to get there. Phelddagrif is all huggy but fits in with the no black activated abilities thing.

Not sure if you are interested in walkers but Estrid, the Masked and the other walkers that can be commanders do use activated abilities... You should take a peak at them here

SirChris39 i don't like at all Olivia, Mobilized for War even if Olivia Voldaren is one of my favorite cards in the game, there's no point to make creatures hasty and +1/+1 if the goal of the deck is wordlgorger combo or dualcaster+twinflame combo, Ad Nauseam even if it is indeed one of the best cards in cEDH, i can't recommend it in a deck with so high cmc cost due to the madness cards we use to cycle then deck, it can turn very bad for us in terms of damange taken. Insidious Dreams that's a great card i will consider to add to my mainboard since it can be another Doomsday for just 1 more mana and some cards in hand, all without the doomsday backdraw of exiling every other card from both library and graeyard. The manabase isn't great since the deck aim is to be budget you haven't access to cards like Ancient Tomb and Badland but for sure i will cut 4 mountains and add 4 swamps since you need more black than red. not having access to Mana Crypt is the worst part of playing in budget, since you don't run solid mana acceleratos, you can't get Anje Falkenrath on turn 2 and that's really bad; some budget accelerators for turn 2 anje could be Blood Pet , Skirk Prospector , Jeweled Amulet , Simian Spirit Guide , Dark Ritual . Sadly, if you want to play cEDH on budget, you have to be prepared to hard loses since things like the diamond cycle and Everflowing Chalice are just too slow for the format. The main problem with a deck like anje madness combo is actually his game plan: you can't decide to play the worldgorger dragon combo in a casual way because it is just too good so you have to play it in a competitive way in order to match your opponet's power level because if you bring a combo deck like this against a casual group hug Phelddagrif player, the gameplay would be like a solitary of yourself doing your things with the opponent trying to interact with you in a suboptimal way and that's just not fun, either way, you can't sit at a cEDH table with a deck that is way too slow for the format because you will end up to be eaten by flash+hulk, isocron shepter+drammatic reversal, ad nauseam storm, teferi+chain veil. The solutions to this problem are actually 3 (if i don't forget others but idk): use proxy cards if you don't play sancioned events and if your playgroup allow them, invest some money buying cards and bringing your deck to the required power level or you can remove all the combos and play the deck just like a madness deck at a casual EDH table; i personally don't like this last option but can turn to be a fun archetype to build and play since you can use really strong and fun cards like Bone Miser , Waste Not with all the discard hatebears, Liliana Vess , Yawgmoth, Thran Physician and his son K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth or cards like Praetor's Grasp , Sheoldred, Whispering One and Gonti, Lord of Luxury for some "heavy black deck flavor" or you can even turn it to a full vampire madness tribal with Falkenrath Gorger ! If you want to stick to the good old one Worldgorger Dragon combo, pls don't do it in casual edh but try to tweak at best for cedh instead otherwise you will ruin some random player day without having fun at all, i can say that 100% . Hope i helped you is some way and happy brewing :D

ThielAthar Oh okay that makes perfect sense. I tried looking around for an answer to this but other places seemed to gloss over it too. The rest of it all makes sense and it's really cool!

I was making a build that just ran Devoted Druid + Vizier of Remedies + Suture Priest , but that build couldn't win at instant speed and either required Phelddagrif to be out already or enough mana to cast it ( only makes infinite green mana ). Your build is awesome.

McToters on Darien, King of Kjeldor

Ajani's Welcome and Soul's Attendant are new to me, so thanks! I think at least one of those will make it in. I think I used to run Soul Warden but the deck was different then so maybe it could find a home in here again. I am certainly familiar with Suture Priest as I ran that in my old Phelddagrif deck as part of a wincon with Storm Herd + Hive Mind . Super funny.

I would build Phelddagrif . It gives you 3 colors, and blue has some great group hug cards.

Hugging it out

That being said this list has been modified slightly as I took out all of its removal. I play a strict no win con-no removal group hug deck but it should give some good ideas.

Personally I like Phelddagrif . You won’t be laughing when I drop a New Frontiers !

Seriously thought, in my playgroup my happy hippo deck almost always places second. Which is pretty neat.
