Quicksilver Amulet Discussion
1 day ago
I think you could tune this to run the high cmc angels. Quicksilver Amulet is great because it lets you keep up four mana for counters and then flash in an angel at their end step. Path of Discovery would work well with atraxa.

Hobo, I feel like I remember you talking about the quintessential Mayael strat of cheating dudes out with cards like the ever-typical Elvish Piper and Quicksilver Amulet? Maybe i'm confused (I've read a LOT of Mayael primers in my days). Personally, I run both because of how they simply fit in the deck's synergies. i don't run Lurking Predators, or even Defense of the Heart, at this point because they're easily removed, but i am going to be trying Hunting Grounds in the coming weeks simply because it's 2-cmc.
This subject does bring me to a question though: Is there a reliable win-con available if one were to run Defense of the Heart or Tooth and Nail entwined? What I mean is, if this were a Xenagos, God of Revels deck, I might go tutor the Kiki/Conscripts win-con, but since this is Naya and a considerably different build, is there a win-con featuring fatties? The best thing i can come up with -in my limited knowledge- is something like Ogre Battledriver+Avenger of Zendikar with T&N precombat, which isn't even a reliable win-con. I've tried tinkering around with Mayael's Aria, but for it to be a win-con you have to have something set up by your upkeep, which is a slow and vulnerable strategy.

Urza's Incubator doesn't quite get the cards for free, but it takes a decent chunk out of their cost.
Belbe's Portal puts creatures onto the field quickly.
Dragon Arch will hit a large number of dragons.
Herald's Horn reduces cost some while also drawing you dragons.

We like your deck! We'd recommend Urza's Incubator or cards like it to make your dino-casting a bit cheaper. Also we'd definitely recommend adding some more cheap-to-cast artifact mana rocks overall like the signets (Boros Signet, etc.) so that you have something to cast during the first few turns. Weathered Wayfarer, Burgeoning, Exploration or Land Tax might also be useful in this stage, should you have an of them. Another option would be to add some cheaters into your deck like Elvish Piper, Champion of Rhonas, Quicksilver Amulet, etc.
Hope this helps. Please let us know! Also, we'd appreciate your feedback on one of our EDH decks.

Sorry, I got busy with a lot of stuff after my vacation ended! Liking the new changes. I actually have been experimenting a bit with Etali, Primal Storm and have found some fun interactions, though I haven't completed my deck because I find it bothersome to keep bouncing some of the cards from decks I play way more often. So one thing that's really fun is Strionic Resonator with any mana rock that taps for two, let's say Sol Ring and Paradox Engine. Since Strionic Resonator's copy of Etali's ability is an exact copy (triggered ability and the ruling says the source of the copy is the same as the original), you can keep tapping the Sol Ring and Strionic Resonator to copy the copy until you can't cast spells off Etali's ability anymore (all players exiling a land).
I've been liking Sensei's Divining Top in the deck for controlling what I exile off the ability and being able to put it on top for a free cast and draw what I want if it's a land or something I want to cast later like a boardwipe.
Finally, I've been putting big fat Eldrazis on the list, along with Blightsteel Colossus with ways to cheat them out other than Etali's ability (Quicksilver Amulet, Planar Bridge, Sneak Attack) along with Warstorm Surge to blast people for tons of damage. Sarkhan's Unsealing is a sick include, I think I'll try it out! Other than that, I've had a lot of success with the haste enablers for all creatures in monored like Fervor, Hammer of Purphoros, Anger, and Urabrask the Hidden. This is all I've thought of in regards to the commander, hope some of the suggestions help!!
