LiquidGaming yep you definitely play my type of decks. Right now I'm still trying to put some finishing touches on a Modern Protean Hulk list I've been working on. I also just finished making a Skill Borrower combo list which seems legitimately good The Gob Kabob... breaking things that shouldn't be broken, lol. I've always had an interest in Legacy Delver, but can't find anyone to play some Legacy with at my LGS. And yes I play a TON of EDH. Since you seem to like my type of decks I would recommend you take a look at Kruphix, God of Horizons control combos, at first this card seems SO CHILL, but whenever I walk into my LGS to play some EDH... Player on my left: "we need to kill John first", Next Player: "we already know that", Player on my right: " Goblin Guide for turn, John I'll attack you". It's funny since it's actually come to the point of them making decks just to deal with Kruphix, God of Horizons .

Have you considered Protean Hulk ? I know that there is a mono green line that uses mostly treefolk things you already have, plus you could use it just for value if you want.

I see that your maybeboard has additional reveillark and friends cards, but is missing Fiend Hunter . It infinite combos with a sac outlet and either sun titan or karmic guide. It can also be used as a way to permanently exile with a sac outlet by in response to your etb trigger you sacrifice it so its ltb trigger happens first.

I also highly suggest Boonweaver Giant + Pattern of Rebirth ( and Academy Rector to find pattern easier) and Protean Hulk since both can be used to get your entire combo on board.

I have a karador deck that uses these to great effect and is currently ranked 4 out of 30 some in my local league. The combo is written out in my deck description if you want to take a look.

Chhris on Mayael, the Master of Monsters

Hi! Love your list. Mayael is such a cool commander in that every list always looks so different. Yours definitely looks dope. I love a mean Mayael list +1.

There's honestly not much I would change. Awesome job getting a Sensei's Divining Top . I'm still trying to track one down. Also, Protean Hulk is not banned anymore, and you can use him to tutor those weenie cards that get sent to the bottom of the library with Mayael, like Selvala. Definitely recommend. I also recommend Chord of Calling . For instant speed, it's amazing. I always search for Avacyn, Angel of Hope .

Some new cards I've had great success with: Response / Resurgence and Wilderness Reclamation the first of which is great utility, and the second of which lets you play spells, AND then untap for a Mayael activation during your opponents turn. One card has been AMAZING for me: Chance for Glory . I understand it's not for everyone, but I run Platinum Angel and Exquisite Archangel effects and it works amazingly well. Here's my list for reference,Chapter 1: The Safari Zone {Primer} and I would of course appreciate any advice or uproots as well. Good luck with the deck!!

I could be wrong about how much some of the things I'm am going to list may effect your deck, but these are my thoughts on your list.

1) Cut the FETCHLANDS. Yes this seems like a bad idea at first, but as a three color deck with so much card draw in it already they don't provide much help with mana fixing. Okay, but then you say they thin the deck. Yeah they do, but they hurt all of your bottom deck manipulation making all of your Serum Visions , Opt , and Sleight of Hand even more mediocre than they already are.

2) Cut 1 Reveillark . I started my list with two, but I found with so much card selection I could always find a way prevent myself from drawing at least one and that's all you need in the library for the combo to work. Something to remember also is that since you have so many discard outlets drawing Reveillark will never be a problem for you. All you have to do is discard the one Reveillark in your deck and use Protean Hulk to find Viscera Seer and Body Double , Body Double enters as Protean Hulk , sac the new Protean Hulk (aka Body Double ), find Mogg Fanatic and another Body Double , have the new Body Double enter as a copy of Reveillark , and proceed to loop the Mogg Fanatic and Body Double for the win.

BTW, I recently finished building a Skill Borrower combo deck for modern if you wouldn't mind would you take a look at it and let me know what you think of it? The Gob Kabob

cEDH_TV on Valakut nauseam

Hi Deadalus19876. First question. Do you play Dota? Your name is a dota item.

Prismatic Omen and lest also include Realmwright . I did play them once in my original deck way back. Like 3 years ago. And I found it to be better to include more mountains and cut those two cards. For a simple reason. This deck only needs Valakut and then it's rock and rolling. If I cut mountains and add these two cards it becomes a 2 card combo. And if you wanna have 2 card combos then Flash + Protean Hulk is just better. Now sitting with Valakut and activating Thrasios isn't a 1 card combo. But it kinda is.

Mana Drain the answer is simple. 2 blue mana is a bit heavy. Sure I have a Pact of Negation . I guess mana drain is card you could include however so I will add it to the maybe board. Like it could be included for sure. Pyroblast is already inside that deck. But I guess I forgot Swan Song . In the video, I did mention why I don't play mana crypt. If I am to unlucky that coin flip will kill my combo. Sure you could play it and never cast it until you draw ad nauseaum. Personally, I dislike cards that function that way. That is the same thing with Dark Ritual . I am not a fan of consumable rituals. I kinda like permanent rituals like Carpet of Flowers . But I agree that dark ritual should be mentioned. Others might like it and I agree that you could play it. I will add it to my maybeboard.

I am going to be blunt: Its the idea you should netdeck. Not the exact deck recipe. This deck doesn't have to be built in this exact way. It is a very open deck. You can add more lands. Or even cut lands. You could add more artifacts and add Mox Opal . So if you believe in the idea, maybe you could build it in a way that you believe will function.

I believe this function. From experience. Also, I am not saying this is the best EDH deck ever. That isn't it.

I really like your list here, but there is definitely some good new cards that would fit well in this list. Rhythm of the Wild , Ilharg, the Raze-Boar , and Guardian Project all fit well in creature heavy decks. I would also suggest butting in some sacrifice utility to make sure Protean Hulk dies, best one I could suggest without effecting the list would be Miren, the Moaning Well or Diamond Valley , Altar of Bone (or any of the Altars, Birthing Pod . Really cool list, hope I was able to help.

Why is Flash Protean Hulk in this deck? Is it for value? I don't see a win combo with it. I don't see tutors for both cards. And I don't see other cards that synergise with Flash .
