Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon Discussion

I'm impressed by the number of -drops in here right now. Almost as many as the land count!

I'd take out some of the frivolous cards and focus on dragons, or permanents. Dragonspeaker Shaman and Dragonlord's Servant fit in. Bloom Tender nets you five mana with your commander out ;)

Even with a few more pieces of ramp like Fellwar Stone, Solemn Simulacrum, and/or Gilded Lotus; def get your land count up to at least 36. Reflecting Pool is cool. One or more of each basic would be good because Blood Moon exists

You have an underlying token theme that might be better served in another deck like Marath, Will of the Wild or Ghave, Guru of Spores. They may need to come out to help streamline your strategy. Unless your opponents are hilariously slow; Goblin Offensive isn't a good fit. Rampaging Baloths is better with a lot of lands or fetch lands. Assemble the Legion mmmaybe worth keeping if you add Triumph of the Hordes wink wink

All of your current instants could be counterspells. Quietus Spike is an old pet card of mine, but slow when most of the creatures are a high cmc already. Hostility is meant for spells like Lightning Bolt

Along with Triumph of the Hordes you have a one-shot win with your commander: Tainted Strike. Also Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon!!!

Above all have fun! Obviously some options I've offered are quite expensive. Build it how you want it. PEACE

mahdik The format isn't necessarily inherently casual, it's just a format that supports a wide variety of playstyles. The format was started by various competitive, casual, and middle-of-the-road players, with the goal of making an interesting alternative to EDH which allows people to play with nonlegendary commanders. While many commanders wouldn't mix well with things on a lower level of competitiveness (such as Magister Sphinx or Platinum Angel), that's true for a large amount of commanders. While a casual playgroup might find their abilities oppressive, a more competitive playgroup might enjoy the unique challenge and playstyle that these commanders encourage. The solution to imbalanced power levels lies in-playgroup, communicating and compromising with the people you play with in order to make sure that everyone is having fun. In the same way that things such as Rafiq of the Many and Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon are acceptable in normal EDH, despite usually demanding answers, commanders which encourage higher power levels are acceptable here.

Nice call on Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon the trio of haste, regeneration and infect on a flying 4/4 body is an outstanding and very playable finisher.

Overflowing Insight.... Yeah... That must just be an EDH spell like Clone Legion... Needs to be an instant!

Favorite is probably Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon. He's oozing awesome design, he's a finisher and is build aroundable. Best part is he's awesome enough that he doesn't even need a dedicated infect deck to be run... he'll finish games on his own!

Least favorite is that new blue one Overflowing Insight. I get that some cards are mythic for limited purposes but come on... its just not nearly as good as a lot of other expensive card draw.
