Staff of Domination Discussion

Hi Psicraft

Thanks for the suggestions! I forgot to mention that I'm trying to keep this budget so I wont add singles above $25, meaning Staff of Domination , Survival of the Fittest , Gaea's Cradle , even Craterhoof Behemoth are out of budget (nor can I find them easily in my locale).

I did try Elvish Guidance in an earlier build but again, once a wipe hits, its no use. Might try it again. I suppose Crop Rotation is only for Cradle and Nykthos? If I dont run both these lands/ only Nykthos, is it still worth it? For now, I'm unable to find a Natural Order locally, but Eldritch Evolution seems to be doing the job, and also cheaper (real money wise).

Grothama, All-Devouring can act as a substitute Ghalta, Primal Hunger for the sake of Life's Legacy effects. I feel I have issues with early filtering. Would cards like Generous Patron , Oath of Nissa work?

Hey lonesentinel, You have put together a very nice deck. I would have some recommendations that you might like.

Asceticism is a realy good protection and works very well.

Staff of Domination a another combo-piece, for Prist of Titania or Elvish Archdruid, Marwyn… as infinitely mana, or/and infinitely darw to Psychosis Crawler

Argothian Elder , Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx , Elvish Guidance , Gaea's Cradle for a heavy mana

Natural Order , Chord of Calling , Summoner's Pact , Crop Rotation , Survival of the Fittest as tutor for combo creatures or lands

If your goal is to collect different combo pieces to reach your line, I would cut Great Oak Guardian and Grothama, All-Devouring out, because they do less for the goal or only once on ETB.

I am available for any questions,

best regards

I really like this deck, I've been thinking that Kydele has cEDH potential for a while. I have some suggestions to maybe help this deck be a little more competitive:

Marwyn is my favourite EDH deck and has been since she took over the commander spot from Ezuri. You can check out my Marwyn deck here: Marwyn EDH.

Cards i enjoy that you dont run are primarily:
Berserk doubles her mana gen and you dont need to sac if you dont attack. Also nice to play on other players greatures when they attack someone else than you.
Beast Whisperer , Primordial Sage , Soul of the Harvest and Guardian Project all helps you refill your hand. Important pieces for "snowballing".
Cloudstone Curio . With 2x cmc1 elfs you can add counters on Marwyn for only one mana. It also creates many "accidental" combos.
Staff of Domination and Umbral Mantle generates infinite mana with Marwyn.

1) It is always difficult to make this decision. I would say if you are happy with your deck compared to your playgroup there is no need to just chuck more money at it.

2) Artifact removal in green should not be a worry there are plenty cards to do so i would be more worried about creature removal, Song of the Dryads Acidic Slime & Beast Within are great removal versatile removal for mono green

3) Fyndhorn Elves Boreal Druid Beast Whisperer are solid druids and the first two help with ramp (5)

4) Elvish Harbinger Joraga Treespeaker Mul Daya Channelers Wirewood Channeler

6) Sword of the Paruns Umbral Mantle and Staff of Domination any of these combined with your commander when she as a few counters on her makes unlimited mana! (also will work with Wirewood Channeler , Elvish Archdruid and Priest of Titania )

Lhurgyof I feel like Lost in the Woods wouldn't be as strong as some other options since I have so few forests. I have not thought of it though and will have to play around with it. Sylvan Library , yeah :D I also think an Staff of Domination would go well

MagicalHacker on How many elves should be ...

Hey everyone!

I just built an elfball commander deck in a video on my YouTube channel, but I don't know if I have enough elves in it.

The deck currently has 20 elves, and some of those are elves like Priest of Titania that adds mana equal to the number of elves you have. These cards are in here to generate infinite mana with Staff of Domination , Sword of the Paruns , or Umbral Mantle , but the more I think about it, the more I'm wondering if I even have enough elves to really make this work...

So, if you are an experienced elfball player in commander, tell me what number of elves I really need to do this well!

enpc on White's issues in Commander

1 month ago

Tyrant-Thanatos: At the end of the day, commander is just one format, popular as it may be. And as it stands, there are no cards which are legal in commander only.

Small group of players is just that. We are talking about a cross section of players who want to play commander, in mono-white, generally casual based, who want to play without runnign a bunch of stax, who want to play white heavy (i.e. without a lot of artifact support).

As for advocating for colourless solutions to fix White's issues, there are already a lot of options. Between new cards like Endless Atlas , Arcane Encyclopedia as well as classics like Skullclamp (since white has no problem with tokens), Staff of Domination , Mind's Eye and others, there is sufficient draw. And on the topic of ramp, there are a lot of really good artifacts that can be run in any colour. And I haven't even touched on all of the white cards that integrate well with artifacts.

The cards already exist in this context, the issue is that generally the players that are complaining about the lack of ramp in white are also the players not running these cards, or not running them in the quantities that they should. And there is no remedy to bad deck building other than just getting better at it. But that doesn't mean WotC should just release a bunch of new cards to make up for a poorly built deck's inadequacies.

Not to mention, releasing good colourless cards just pushes the available card pool for everybody up, it doesn't actually affect the card advantage or ramp disparity.
