"One-card wincons" to consider: Insurrection , Expropriate , Painful Quandary , Rise of the Dark Realms , Revel in Riches , Cut / Ribbons . Perhaps Clone Legion , Rite of Replication , Mogis, God of Slaughter , Hour of Promise , Blatant Thievery , Grave Betrayal , or Mind's Dilation .

The Chain Veil , Inexorable Tide , Contagion Clasp , and Contagion Engine maybe?

One thing to think about is getting Nicol Bolas flipped and maybe joined by the other planeswalkers and casting Obliterate , Jokulhaups , Devastation , or Decree of Annihilation . Almost guaranteed ultimates. Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God would be the best--proxy for now and include in first build?

Struyk Thanks bud! Actually got a couple out. Beast Within , Thran Dynamo , Sire of Stagnation (Thank you so much for pointing out it's colorless xD), Hadana's Climb  Flip, Journey to Eternity  Flip are out. Actually decided to keep Kruphix, God of Horizons , Sphinx's Revelation and Detention Sphere for the moment but probably i'll get them out too once I found something else to put.

I'll keep Mirari's Wake . Doubling my mana, in 5 color, help me so much! I don't get mana screwed if I play 2-3 spells in the same turn with this (as it can happens without]. Rakdos Charm is a personnal choice I guess. There's a lot of token deck in my playgroup, and it can one shot a player easily for 2 mana, which is good imo and it stop reanimate too! (YAY, RIP The Mimeoplasm and Meren of Clan Nel Toth ) Thought Vessel seems good to me too. Having a second Reliquary Tower is not bad I think.

I checked your deck and took a couple cards from you :) ( Despark , Ionize , Angrath's Rampage , Time Wipe and Knight of Autumn )

I'll stay tuned to your future upgrades :)

Take a look at my attempt

Work in progress still :) My goal is to play commander, draw many cheap control cards / counter cards and win by card advantage.

Drop all those enchantments, Sphinx's Revelation , Beast Within , Rakdos Charm , Thran Dynamo , Thought Vessel , Kruphix, God of Horizons and Sire of Stagnation ( colorless! )

Thanks for the input.

However, don't see how Sire of Stagnation is good here. I mean, playing something for 6 that doesn't instantly do something powerful seems a bit iffy to me.

He's good when he sticks, but that looks pretty hard to me.

Hey there everybody! I was playing a game of commander a little while back and just got hit by a wave of happiness when I thought about all the good times with the deck I was playing. I instantly wanted to share it! So here's my idea: post your favorite or most beloved deck here (it doesn't matter what format) and share why you love it! Maybe share a great memory too!

Here's mine:


*Primer* A Hellish Crusade [Edgy Specter Tribal]

Okay, so this is a specter tribal deck I created in January of 2019. I know it's recent, but I already have some great memories with this deck! I like this deck because it's unique and it allows me to play cards most people don't even know about. For example, one user who commented on my deck didn't know that Specter was a tribe in Magic! The deck is ridiculously fun, especially when you cast Kindred Charge and swing for 30-40 damage and your opponents just discard their hands! One of the reasons this deck resonates with me is that I've always enjoyed discard. I think the ability to get rid of threats before they happen is really cool and overall, I like graveyard shenanigans. (Looking at you Body Double ) My favorite memory with this deck was when I got 10, yes 10 Sire of Stagnation . How did I do this? Well the deck runs a lot of clones so that I can make copies of my specters (there are only 22 in the game right now). One of the cool things the deck can do is say: "Hey you have something really nice? Now I do too!" So my friend Gareth plays Sire of Stagnation , I play Dack's Duplicate , then I play Mirror Image targeting the duplicate. Now I have two sires, but wait there's more! I play Clone making another sire, then I cast Cackling Counterpart and pay flashback! That's FIVE Sire of Stagnation . Every time my opponent plays a land, I draw TEN CARDS!!!!! Then I cast Kindred Dominance choosing Eldrazi and BOOM 10 Sire of Stagnation !!!! I killed two of my opponents passed the turn. Turns out I'm not running Laboratory Maniac and my opponent played I land, milling me out. I may have lost, but that is easily one of the most fun games I've ever played! That's why I love this deck so much!

@[email protected]_only Glad that you like it. You COULD include All Is Dust is your sideboard, but seeing that you have around ANNIHILATOR 50, I don't think that is is necessary. And While World Breaker , Oblivion Sower and Sire of Stagnation are all powerful cards, they don't have the pure smashing power of Desolation Twin or Void Winnower and that is what im really looking for in my sideboard. I also don't need to include Sire of Stagnation because I have Kozilek, Butcher of Truth who automatically refill my hand regardless of how many cards I had in there prior. While I looked at Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger , Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre has more potential for any possible doomsday devices. Shuffling my graveyard into my library is just an added security feature(just in case. You'll never know what you'll com across). He also has Annihilator which is always a plus.

Love the deck! very similar to my old original zendikar block deck, but with a modern update.

not sure if this has been brought up or not, but All Is Dust is technically an eldrazi. coupled with It That Betrays , this can seriously cripple an opponent.

I think the sideboard for that old deck was 3 all is dust (redundancy against counter magic), 2 Emrakul, 2 Ulamog, 2 It that Betrays, and 2 Kosilek, and then a bunch of other smashers. with the newer eldrazi, World Breaker is a decent optional addition, as are Oblivion Sower , Sire of Stagnation (because if you don't need to spend mana, might as well get some card draw in there), and 1 Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger as additional removal
