DeinoStinkus on Choosing to go second

4 weeks ago

I would just to learn something about my opponents before I choose what land to play. For example, I could opt to play a Temple of Silence in tapped to secure some info if my opponents are a bit slow, or shock in a Watery Grave if they seem primed to win turn 2 with Protean Hulk reanimation.

Aside from Protean Hulk, you might want to consider the Boonweaver Combo (Boonweaver Giant + Pattern of Rebirth):

If you have either piece (and, in the Pattern's case, a disposable creature that you can enchant with it) and any sac outlet, you can fetch the remaining piece and go off:

  1. sac Boonweaver Giant enchanted with Pattern of Rebirth to get Karmic Guide, reanimate the Giant with the ETB trigger and enchant it with the Pattern again;

  2. sac the Giant again to get Felidar Guardian, flicker the Guide, reanimate the Giant again;

  3. sac the Giant one last time to get Reveillark.

Now that you have Guide, Felidar and Lark on the battlefield, you can sac them (make sure Lark is the last one to go) to get them all back and flicker Guide to get the Giant back. Now the sky is the limit and you can cheat every single creature from your library and/or graveyard into the battlefield and loop their ETB/death triggers to your heart's content: Acidic Slime to get rid of all of your opponents artifacts, enchantments and lands, Perilous Myr for infinite damage, and so on.

This combo can also be done with Protean Hulk, naturally. I like it because tutoring for or drawing into Blasting Station and Altar of Dementia is surprisingly hard in a Selesnya deck, so it's nice to be able to win with your other sac outlets.

I also like Gift of Immortality. It turns both Sun Titan and Boonweaver Giant into infinite sacrifice fodder and, like Saffi, gets extra value from your creatures' triggers when you're not going off.

Reveillark and friends combo. Not the most efficient combo, but it can be put fully into play via Boonweaver Giant or Protean Hulk and has enough redundancy that it is pretty hard to completely stop.

tcooke2 Protean Hulk is already in the list, and listed in the combo tutors. Felidar Guardian Combos with Karmic Guide, Reveillark, Animate Dead, Necromancy, and Dance of the Dead but those cards already have redundant combos in this list, and most cost less than 4. I'd consider it, but I'm not sure it's worth the slot.

Vivien, Monsters' Advocate

5 mana plus the requirement to play a creature in order to tutor for a creature whose cmc is limited by the first creature we play? That’s pretty bad as far as tutors, go. Besides we already have 13 tutors that aren’t Protean Hulk, all of which are better than Vivien. That’s more than enough I think.

Cryptic Trilobite, however, is an excellent combo piece with Ghave. I just haven’t done the math to decide how many combos he enables and whether or not he’s worth replacing one of the existing combo pieces

SteelSentry on What is the best commander ...

Fish hulk took a hit with the Flash ban; Oracle is still a viable win con, but I don't know how ubiquitous Protean Hulk is.

I don't know what audience you are targeting, do you want to cover cEDH with the most objectively powerful, or cover the archetypes that typically dominate more casual tables? In the latter case, I would cover commanders like Urza, Lord High Artificer, Muldrotha, the Gravetide, and The Gitrog Monster.

Wow i love this deck! I'm returning to MTG after a number of years and i've been looking for a commander to build around for the last few weeks - I think this is something for me. I like the idea of using pod and vannifar to build this deck around. Im thinking of including Protean Hulk for a Ezuri, Claw of Progress and Sage of Hours infinite turn combo, using Yasova's ability to steal creatures to sac with Vannifar/pod! Do you have any suggestions? thanks
