Cloudius on Yuriko, Oona's Successor

+1 I've a soft spot for Dimir and cause the mention of Brago, King Eternal caught my eye as he's my very 1st EDH commander. I'm also a big fancy of funky innovative builds!

Cavern Harpy seems like a nice fit in this deck, allowing repeated bounce at a cost of 1 life.

I recently made a creatureless Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign deck and thought some of the top of library manipulation spells could come in handy in your deck should you want to strengthen this area.

We Love Freebies! *Primer*

Commander / EDH Cloudius


Conch Horn an inexpensive mini Brainstorm.

Dimir Machinations an underused, under-rated card. It's versatile as you can use it on yourself to rearrange the top of your library, use it on your opponent to control his next few draws, or act as a tutor for your key 3 CMC combo pieces like Arcane Adaptation or Words of Wind.

Sensei's Divining Top is awesome too if you've the budget for it.

Hello! My suggestions: Linvala, Keeper of Silence - no need to explain, Ajani Steadfast to put counters especially on Herald of War, Angel of Invention - to boost your creatures, Stoneforge Masterwork and Inquisitor's Flail- to make your commander much stronger, Wrath of God, Day of Judgment - board wipes, Sensei's Divining Top - card draw.

Your deck includes a lot of ways to get infinite mana, but only 3, maybe 4, ways to use that infinite mana. We'd add some spells that would allow you to draw your deck with that kind of mana. Spells that come to mind are:

That brings us to the deck's ability to draw cards in general. It literally has no cards that allow for extra draw. To us, this seems a rather bad thing, considering that you're playing blue and you're relying on combo's (and the cards to tutor for them) to win. Then again, the deck does contain about twelve tutor cards, so maybe it works like this. Let's just say we would at the least recommend adding something like Rhystic Study, Sensei's Divining Top or Scroll Rack and maybe add some cheap instants/sorceries for draw like Ponder, Preordain or Brainstorm.

The final main problem; countering/removal. The deck doesn't have any, and you do need at least some. Not having any of it can be bad for a number of reasons. Just as examples, opposing players can steal Sen Triplets or cast a card like Stranglehold to prevent you from tutoring. There's many more creative ways to screw around with combo decks. Therefore, we would advise you to include at least some forms of removal/countering like Swords to Plowshares, Path to Exile, Swan Song, Counterspell, etc.

Well, we hope all this is useful to you and that we weren't being too preachy :) Good luck with the deck!

With kind regards,

Mr. and Mrs. NV_1980

Thanks for helping out! I put Herald of War in the list (not updated here yet). Sensei's Divining Top is looking sick! Don't know about the tokens for this build though, I like the big white stompy flavour ;)

I took the build to my LGS and had alot of fun, went 3/4! Will continue to tweak after more testing.

This deck is at a very good power level. It powerful while not being competitive so It should be about equal with what you can expect to find in bigger game stores. I would recommend adding: Sensei's Divining Top- Since you have so many play top card of deck this will help a lot in making it more predictable. Selvala, Explorer Returned - Its good mana ramp and card draw, this card is often underrated and with the other top library card/shuffle you can get more value from it. And lastly Tempt with Discovery If you tend to play in bigger groups. I find about half the people go for it. Note its land not basic land so It can let you get out the harder to get land.

Hi! Welcome to EDH. Nice deck. As for me I'd make some additions. Creatures: Herald of War (strongly recommended for Angels/Humans tribal), Burnished Hart (everyone needs additional lands), Angel of Invention (useful creature without a doubt), Reya Dawnbringer (mana cost is high but her ability is nice). Artifacts: Sensei's Divining Top (card advantage), Ashnod's Altar (one of the best mana rocks. But you need tons of creatures to sacrifice so I advice you to think about token generators. For example Elspeth, Sun's Champion or Gideon, Ally of Zendikar + Anointed Procession). Good luck!

I'd recommend more effects to try to control what you get with Vaevictus. Use Scroll Rack, Sylvan Library, and Sensei's Divining Top to control the top of your library, Garruk's Horde and other cards to look at it, and fetchlands, Evolving Wilds, and Terramorphic Expanse and other ways to shuffle your library if you don't like what's on top.

Newest infinite combo piece for commander probably. Play it with Sensei's Divining Top and Helm of Awakening for infinite draw until you draw Aetherflux Reservoir then use your storm count with sensei's divining top to wipe out your opponents.

That or if you have enough money on hand you can draw until you get Lion's Eye Diamond and Elixir of Immortality to generate infinite mana and life gain.
