Sedris, the Traitor King Discussion

TheDevicer on Need Help Finding A Commander ...

3 weeks ago

Ok, well take a look at my Kess Splinter Twin deck. I've been playing dedicated Splinter Twin combo with Sedris, the Traitor King for years. Basically myself and some other user came up with the same concept a few years back and that guy helped popularize the deck. Now Kess has drastically improved the deck.

This deck can be fast to combo out, but it's real strength lies in being able to push for the win through many different paths. You can end-step flash in Deceiver Exarch and combo out on your turn, you can reanimate your combo pieces, you can out value people with Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, or you can strip people's hands with a Wheel of Fortune effect with Notion Thief. In the end, this deck has to be respected.

Contrast that deck with my Mimeoplasm deck. This creation was limited by what I had on me while the other two have been in progress for years. The deck has an awful land base just because I had no really good picks left. The deck has a decent ramp package, efficient mill that doubles as draw, some amount of interaction, and some fatties as payoffs. It's not all that sophisticated but it has some nuance to it. The primary gameplan is to just cast ridiculously high-value cards until you're the last one standing. With Demonic Tutor, you could also combo with Seasons Past and Time Warp.

legendofa on Emrakul Commander???

Emrakul, the Aeons Torn isn't a bad choice as a single card, but you got two multicolor heavy sets with the Alara stuff, and Lorwyn can easily go multicolor. If you run Emrakul as your commander, you literally cannot use any cards from the Alara Reborn set--every card in it is multicolored, as a gimmick.

Since you did get the Eldrazi, I would suggest something like Mayael the Anima, who can cheat them out and has good ramp options, Sedris, the Traitor King to dump big stuff in the graveyard then unearth it out, before reshuffling if necessary, or maybe Thraximundar to play with Annihilator. With the sets you got, I think big Eldrazi should go in the deck, instead of leading it.

Thank you for your contribution! Ive actually never played or played against Dredge, so I will give those cards a try and see what happens. I actually play reanimator w/ Sedris, the Traitor King and its been a blast but Ive been playing the same deck for years and want to try something new. Cant seem to get away from my love for the graveyard though, and I prefer at minimum 3 colors for my commander just because I am never satisfied w/ only two.

Thanks again! It is much appreciated!

Not sure if my other comment made it on but if not here it goes. I recommend Teferi's Veil as he works well with Sedris, the Traitor King acting as another Sundial of the Infinite for attacking creatures.

I know others have suggested Deadeye Navigator, but it is difficult to overstate how good he is with Sedris and pretty much every ETB creature in existence like the primordials or Anathemancer... heh.

Nice deck +1

sado on Sedris, the King of Completely Broken Combos

If you don't mind, I would suggest adding a Phyrexian Delver to the deck and adding a Pestermite and a Deceiver Exarch. Also, a potential Splinter Twin. The idea is that you are using two new 2 card combos to the deck that are hard to interact with because of how fast they potentially can go off.

Buried Alive Combo: If you Buried Alive you can put Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Zealous Conscripts/Deceiver Exarch, and Phyrexian Delver into the graveyard and use a reanimation spell/a creature that reanimates or even Sedris, the Traitor King to bring back Phyrexian Delver, which brings back Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker which taps to clone Delver and the copy of Phyrexian Delver brings back Zealous Conscripts/Pestermite which untaps Kiki and then you go infinite and win. You lose life but win in the process.

Splinter Twin Combo:Pestermite/Deceiver Exarch/Zealous Conscripts+Splinter Twin="Infinite" creatures with haste. Pestermite/Deceiver Exarch cost less and have flash. This gives more opportunity to play on opponent's end step for a Kiki cast or a Splinter Twin enchant on of the two the next turn. Splinter Twin also works with Zealous Conscripts but costs 9 mana to pull off making it a harder combo to pull off.

Good luck out there fellow Sedris player

Sendaran on Bolas, the Archenemy

Here's a little list of suggestions:
- Crosis, the Purger is like Bolas's little brother.
- Sedris, the Traitor King, Sidisi, Undead Vizier and Taigam, Sidisi's Hand, a very Grixis flavored synergistic creature package.
- Prince of Thralls pure oppression incarnate.
- Archfiend of Depravity great for archenemy and multiplayer in general. Keeps the board easily manageable.
- Cauldron Dance a very powerful combat trick.
- Malfegor because demon dragon, among other things.
- Fists of the Demigod, Helm of the Ghastlord, Clout of the Dominus for flavorful buffs.
- Kederekt Parasite with Elder Mastery is one of the most evil things you can do.

I agree with Sedris, the Traitor King if you are worried you will be hated out of the game. Blink effects also get around the Unearth exile and also give you more etb triggers. cklise Thanks for showing me Teferi's Veil.
