@Winterblast: Thanks for taking the time to take a look at the deck. Regarding your comments, I talked about Cryptolith Rite in the 'single card discussion' section of the deck description. Briefly, the card is okay but not good enough to make the cut. Creatures with summoning sickness can't tap for mana, so contrary to Earthcraft, it probably won't allow us to produce degenerate mana during the same turn you cast CRite. Also, Earthcraft usually produces more than one mana because of the mana doublers in the deck (e.g., Wild Growth) and we need untapped creatures for earthcraft and Chord of Calling.

I should have explained the role of Skyshroud Elf more in depth. It's not there just to avoid blood moon-type effects; it can do that, of course, but its primary role is to convert mana from cards like Gaea's Cradle, Earthcraft, etc., into mana we can use to cast our general and win cons. That's the reason I wrote that skyshroud should not be meta-dependent--I'm pretty confident that it's a must for this deck.

As you mentioned, however, there is a couple of enchantments and artifacts that can be somewhat problematic for creature-based decks (Humility is a very good example, so thanks for bringing that to my attention.) I've thought about that and the existence of those cards is one of the reason we have cards like Nature's Claim and Beast Within. Interestingly, none of the cards you mentioned will affect the the Purphoros storm kill as long as you can storm under such conditions, which is not that hard tbh. The really problematic cards are the ones that don't allow us to keep a bunch of tiny creatures on the board (e.g., Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite, Spreading Plague). But then again, we have multiple ways of answering those cards and win the game.

Lol well fair enough, I generally use Spreading Plague when I have Zurgo indestructible on others turns via Shielded by Faith, Darksteel Plate, Avacyn, Angel of Hope etc. But Tainted AEther fills a similar role without the backfire.

The reason I like Obliterate, Jokulhaups and Cataclysm is because Devastation doesn't take out the opponents mana rocks either so they could potentially comeback. I also use a fair amount of plainswalkers like Elspeth, Knight-Errant and Ajani, Caller of the Pride to seal the deal after a wrath which is a option. Anyways, best of luck!

dlamars Spreading Plague is really cool..... Until it's my opponents turn and they kill my Commander with it.Obliterate is a great board wipe for game ender but only as that. So I might put it in the deck. I usually like Devastation better because I can keep my mana rocks. But those wipes you mentioned are great options.

Maybe Spreading Plague? I also like Jokulhaups and Obliterate as a game ender.
