Daedalus19876 on No Hand(lebars) - 1v1 Hazoret EDH

2 weeks ago

Hmmm. This deck is jank AF...but I'm always on board with jank!

cracks knuckles Let's get this show on the road.

You said you're having trouble finding your combo. The only unconditional tutor in red is Gamble, unless you want to play high-cost artifacts like Ring of Three Wishes or Planar Portal. But since your Bazaar Trader can do the same job, Goblin Matron can find him. If your playgroup plays the Wishes as first intended, you can also use Burning Wish to find a Harmless Offering from outside of the game.

This deck could happily embrace Vow of Lightning to keep Hazoret from whacking you. Confusion in the Ranks could also be a very good card here, since Hazoret the Fervent has haste and thus is a prime target to be stolen by everyone.

Have you considered Worldslayer to equip to Hazoret when you control her? You could also use some more removal (particularly Chaos Warp and Blasphemous Act) to remove those pesky Peacekeepers (which get in the way of your fun!).

As cute as Sword of the Ages is, I feel like Fling might fit your purposes better here. Also, Repercussion is a must when you can hit your opponents with cards like Nahiri's Wrath :D

What's with the fetches here? You don't have any library-manipulation effects and you're in mono-colors.

Deck looks entertainingly unique :) You certainly get my +1, lol.

I like Rebuff the Wicked, but the rest seem too niche.

I do think you need some way to find Near Death Experience. What do you do in the games where it begins 2/3rds of the way down your deck? If you don't want to play the broken tutors, thats understandable. Would you be opposed to things like Planar Portal and Ring of Three Wishes?

Oh, and you probably need Worship too.

Another good one is Planar Portal same thing as the bridge except to your hand. A tutor every turn.

Paradox Engine is a must have. It's almost always a win if you can get it down in a deck like this. As an addition, I'd actually recommend Endless One, and before you bully me out of existence, it's actually a great creature with so many infinite mana combos and practically nothing to spend it on. I'd take out Colossus of Akros for it, and Planar Portal for Paradox Engine or Planar Bridge.

DrLitebur on Best value cards to acquire ...

Panharmonicon and Paradox Engine have EDH value written all over them. The other card in that vein is Planar Bridge, which is an upgrade to the staple Planar Portal. I also think Lifecrafter's Bestiary is a good card to speculate on, because it is something G doesn't have a lot of (Scrying and Card drawing) and it will be pretty decent for both Standard and EDH. The final thing I got to say is I believe all the Expertise cards will be good, in both Standard and EDH (more so in Standard) because they are tempo plays (you can cast them and then cast something else and not lose your turn doing so) and they all so something pretty decent. The worst one(s) are the red one and the white one, but even they are not all that bad.

Paradox Engine is just way too beast. I just made an upgraded Sidisi storm with it:deck-large:new-sidisi-1 (Large decklink not working :( )

It's like there's nothing it doesn't make better. In here it's great because with it and Corpse Dance on Sidisi you get infinite mana, infinite storm, and infinite tutors. If you get off to a good enough start you can even tutor for it instead of Ad Nauseam. Think about that. It can be better than Ad Nauseam in ANT Sidisi. How ridiculous is that? (I suppose it's just AN Sidisi now that Aetherflux Reservoir is a thing, nut w/e.)

Watch it's gonna get banned and we'll have spent months coming up with these designs for nothing. That's gonna suck.

Anyway, I like your list quite a bit. I have no experience playing Kozilek so my insights probably won't be too detailed. As for not having not having Mishra's Workshop and stuff, why don't you just make a second deck and put them in? All the lists I've been submitting have been purely fantasy, and I'm sure NarejED hasn't built all of his. Just copy/paste the primer you wrote (which is excellent by the way) and add a note at the top that links back to the original. That's what I've been doing.

This might be a personal preference, but I'd also merge all your separate land categories into one. It's a little hard to read the way you have it, and you already go into detail about what all the lands do in the primer.

As for the deck itself, I'm just going to take issue with one card. Unwinding Clock seems really superfluous to me. I looked in your primer and you talked about using it with Null Brooch, Predator, Flagship, and Soul Conduit, but those all have been taken out, so really all you have that works well with it is Staff of Domination, Kuldotha Forgemaster, Coalition Relic, and sort of Grim/Basalt/ManaVault. Just six cards, three of which only give you mana, isn't really enough to warrant it anymore, IMO.

I also think Solemn might be a little slow here, and Oblivion Sower confuses me.

TronIsloveTronislife, I looked at your list too, and it also seems solid. You and Gigi run a lot of the same cards, so it's tricky to tell which one is "better." However I do think yours is running some cards that could be considered sup-prime, specifically:

Akroma's Memorial, Batterskull, Blinkmoth Urn (helps opponents), Darksteel Forge, Icy Manipulator, Mycosynth Lattice, Nevinyrral's Disk, Pacification Array, Planar Portal, Smokestack, Static Orb (seems like this is ONLY playable with Unwinding Clock), Tower of Fortunes, Cloudpost/Glimmerpost (basically taplands, replace with Wastes), Karn, Silver Golem, Silent Arbiter (won't bother many cEDH decks), Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger (he's mediocre without anhilator, and Eldrazi are the easiest thing for you to tutor), and Voltaic Construct.

A lot of these have high costs that, while you are able to pay, restrict how much you're able to do per turn. I know using Kuldotha Forgemaster to chain into Darksteel Citadel+Mycosynth Lattice+Nevinyrral's Disk, or Karn, Silver Golem+Voltaic Construct+Gilded Lotus is awesome and tempting, but when you start hardcasting them in a deck that's trying to win by turn 5, it gets a little less awesome, and chaining into Basalt Monolith+Rings of Brighthearth+Sensei's Divining Top or Staff of Domination+Metalworker gets the job done just as well with way less overhead.

Reminder: Never played Kozilek, my word is not gospel, don't quote any of this or be offended, your deck still looks like you put a lot of time / effort / quality into it.

Also I gotta vote for gigi in this case for that super detailed primer. That's really good to have on a sample decklist.

I'm actually considering Planar Bridge over Planar Portal. Tamiyo's Journal is too slow without other clue generators.

Mirror of Fate is awesome, I'll surely put it in! Thanks!

Perhaps consider Tamiyo's Journal over Planar Portal? Less expensive overall, grants more card draw, and doesn't require mana to tutor, leaving more mana up for counterspell shenanigans.

Also, Mirror of Fate to combo with Lab Maniac for another wincon. Activate the Mirror just before your draw step and choose to put 0 cards on top of your library. :)
