Ancient Animus is effectively removal.

Blackblade Reforged is wicked scary.

Captain Sisay is a must.

Champion's Helm is pretty badass- a second Swiftfoot Boots with a buff rather than haste.

Day of Destiny is not bad.

Heroes' Podium is much better.

In Bolas's Clutches may not be bad.

Depending on your mana situation, Kamahl's Druidic Vow might be insane.

Loyal Retainers could be cool.

Mox Amber is not a terrible mana rock.

Primevals' Glorious Rebirth is a whole lotta value.

Reki, the History of Kamigawa would draw so many cards.

Time of Need is a 2-mana tutor.

Urza's Ruinous Blast is a one-sided board wipe.

Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help.

Neato +1 from me

I really like the Honden cycle, Tatyova, Benthic Druid , Reki, the History of Kamigawa , Crackling Perimeter , and a lot of the new stuff like Guild Summit , Wilderness Reclamation and Plaza of Harmony

Nim Deathmantle seems out of place. It's because you're running a lot of boardwipes (so is everyone else); and hopefully you're going to have a lot of mana ?

No Tempt with Discovery ? It gets any land. I guess it's a little over costed unless you're in a big group game. I try to never give in to someone else's tempt ;)

What do you think about Bring to Light , Maelstrom Nexus , Maelstrom Archangel , Demonic Tutor , etc? They're not legendary but are good. Maybe Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder , Thrasios, Triton Hero and Azusa, Lost but Seeking to really drop some CA$H XD

Keep up the good work!

Captain Sisay, commonly the best hatebear deck in the format, being tier 1 in cEDH for good reason. Sisay can fetch hate of all kinds, and is a better combo enabler with Paradox Engine lines too.

Here is a list of good, fetchable hatebear targets with Sisay:




Card draw engines


All of the above is just what I remember off the top of my head, you can find tons of cool things to fetch!

gvazdaus, typically my wins look like a Heart Sliver + Basal Sliver + Gemhide Sliver/Manaweft Sliver + Sliver Queen infinite mana combo. My meta is Control Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign, Voltron Sram, Senior Edificer, and Goodstuff/Synergy Reki, the History of Kamigawa. The worst of it is that politically, my deck is very weak. My playgroup tends to go for me first, and it quickly becomes a game of Archenemy. Typically the best thing I can do is play a bunch of Slivers and attempt to combo out when the table least expects it. Usually it works a lot better than i'd expect until the Yennett player gets a CounterScepter online, then i'd just be hurtin.

Rarely do I ever swing wide though. In case you were wondering.

I got my opponent to scoop tonight, actually. Lol.

He was playing Green Stompy and I was playing a fixed NV.

I had out Caustic Crawler and Rampaging Baloths with a stack of 8 or 9 tokens. Those were literally my only creatures. He kept trying his best to play stuff, but I kept killing with removal. During the turn I had four lands enter, I took out his Yisan, the Wanderer Bard who had a Divinity Counter on it via That Which Was Taken. Really pissed him off super bad because he was up to Yisan's 4th use.

The next turn, when my lands all untapped, I played Crash of Rhino Beetles (The third creature I played all game, mind you) and he scooped, lmao.

I had been using Caustic Crawler to constantly kill off his Commander; Reki, the History of Kamigawa. He was getting MAAAAD, lmao.

Reki got Rekt

Saw this on the deckcycle list and thought I'd comment. I play Sisay as well, a tuned competitive Paradox Engine version: Captain Sisay's Engine Chain Extravaganza. Just so you have perspective of where my advice comes from.

I do strongly recommend adding Paradox Engine to the deck as you run some of the more expensive mana rocks already, and by adding in Mox Amber and/or Mox Opal you could tutor and cast most legendary cards in your deck in one impressive turn. The Immortal Sun could easily be replaced by Paradox Engine and this deck would be much, much stronger for it. Oh, you may also want to replace one of your colorless producing lands for Inventors' Fair as it would let you find your nonlegendary artifacts during the combo turn.

That said, some recommendations to speed it up:

Jolrael does not have an ability that would warrant ever needing it. Kamahl + mana does this just straight up better, so I can't think of a reason you'd tutor it out during a game over something else, so that slot could easily become Thalia, Guardian of Thraben which halts, at least temporarily, Food Chain, Storm, and Ad Nauseam decks pretty well.

Iona and Avacyn aren't super necessary when you have Elesh Norn. Elesh Norn + Kamahl kills off your opponents lands, so they won't have the mana to cast spells to destroy your creatures, so you could easily go without these (and if you have 9 mana to cast Avacyn or Iona, then you have 8-9 mana that could be spent killing opposing lands so they can't board wipe you).

Karametra, sadly, doesn't seem to do a whole lot in this list either. Sure, she ramps you hard but it's unnecessary since Paradox Engine is just that much better of an... engine.

Removing the aforementioned 3 cards opens up some slots. Mox Opal and Mox Amber could take 2 of those slots, and Selvala, Explorer Returned could take the last. The reason for this is because with Sisay and Paradox Engine out, Selvala + Thousand Year Elixir + Green Sun's Zenith will let you draw your opponents out while you win. You run 23 legendary cards, of which at least 5 of these will be on field (Sisay, Engine, Mox Opal and Amber, and Selvala herself). So you tutor and cast Dromoka, so no one can cast spells on your turn, and then begin drawing everyone cards because for every one card you cast, you draw 2 more. Sisay lets you tutor 18 legendary cards, and then you'll draw 36 cards on top of it, meaning you can't fizzle as you'll always have spells to play to untap via Paradox Engine. Once you've exhausted your library of cards, you simply cast Green Sun's Zenith, fail to find, it gets 'shuffled' in (it's the only card in your library now), and you just tap Selvala to reveal, get G, draw the GSZ, and repeat the process while everyone else will eventually deck out. If someone has Abundance or something, no big deal, you have Urza's Ruinous Blast to exile it then draw them out anyway lol.

Anyway, explaining the Selvala, Explorer combo takes a bit but it works pretty well (it's one of the primary win conditions in my own Sisay deck. I've also been toying around with Sisay + Engine + Reki, the History of Kamigawa, Cloudstone Curio, and Blind Obedience to win, though that one isn't really necessary. My backup win condition is Kamahl + Elesh Norn and I just turn the crazy mana production my deck does into murdering people's mana sources so they can't win, and then I beat them down with hard to answer hate bears.

Miren, the Moaning Well would be something you could tutor with Sisay when you're preparing to go off the following turn to get rid of Gaddock Teeg, Eidolon of Rhetoric, etc.. It could be slotted in pretty easily over Gavony Township which doesn't seem that useful here.

Hey if you need help speeding the deck up, Reki, the History of Kamigawa and Honor-Worn Shaku are pretty incredible cards thanks the all planeswalkers being legendary.
