Lilbrudder: I swear, the shells for each of your Sultai decks are exactly identical XD You get a +1, of course - as always, your decks impress.

Cards that I might add:

  • Glimpse of Nature (because playing Legacy Elves in commander is fun)

  • Exsanguinate (because even without X=infinity, you generate a LOT of mana)

  • Elvish Champion ('cuz most everyone plays green for ramp, at least around here)

  • Culling the Weak (should be obvious)

  • Trophy Mage (castable off of Aluren, and grabs the most important two artifacts in your deck: Cloudstone Curio for the combo, and Staff of Domination if you already have infinite mana)

  • Whir of Invention (tutors to battlefield are one heck of a drug, and it grabs almost all of your combo pieces though the triple blue can be harsh)

  • Earthcraft (you may not have enough basics, though...)

  • Hermit Druid (since you're already playing ALMOST zero basics, you could get away with sticking in another combo plan)

  • Concordant Crossroads (because the only thing better than Elves is Elves-with-haste)

  • possibly Immaculate Magistrate (although the 4CMC is a touch high, it gets absurd with all of the untap effects here and pumps out power like nothing else)

And finally, I would perhaps look at your Isochron Scepter-able cards in this deck. Although you theoretically have 12, most are bad things to put on Isochron Scepter (counterspells that need a target, Chain of Vapor can be copied to remove Isochron, etc). Of course, you can abuse the stack to still make the Paradox Engine combo work, but it means that Isochron is much less useful than usual outside the single combo.

Cards that I might cut: Lion's Eye Diamond (as far as I can tell, you don't have any particularly good ways to abuse it here), Yawgmoth's Will (I get what you're saying about recursion, but if you already have infinite mana it feels a bit win-more), Voltaic Key (what is that used for?), and Imperial Seal (if you're playing in paper, I just never consider the card worth the exorbitant $$$ cost).

Overall, though, the deck looks really good I really don't have much to add, haha.

Hey! I have a deck just like this that i've been tweaking around with for awhile, if you have the cards for it you should try it out! You probably have the cards because it's very budget friendly, and I bet a playset of Staff of Domination would work wonders for the old girl! This is the deck:

LeaPlath on ALL THE MANA!

But...Staff of Domination is only in MUD because it combos with Metalworker to generate infinite mana with 3 artifacts in hand.

TacticsElf on ALL THE MANA!

LeaPlath I use Tron because it's a theme within the deck- it's 12-Post Tron, for the maximum amount of mana. It's not meant to be really competitive, just a fun quirky deck idea I had. While I know Ancient Tomb and City of Traitors are efficient at getting more mana earlier- I like the idea of mashing 3 different archetypes.

Helix Pinnacle is in the side as a win-con because of the massive amounts of mana produced. Astral Cornucopia could be replaced by some other mana rock I suppose- that's why it's a work in progress!I have looked at a few MUD decks, and thats why I added Staff of Domination and have considered Metalworker.

I appreciate the input, though! Thanks!

Staff of Domination + Elvish Archdruid and 5 creatures on the field = infinite , infinite draws, infinite life, the ability to tap all your enemies creatures for an unblocked attack and the ability to untap all of your creatures after an attack.

MagicalHacker on Vial Smasher Stax?

1 week ago

Actually, I dont know that Vial Smasher makes that much sense for Stax, as she does best when you have nothing prohibiting you from casting spells. Especially since she seems to want you to cast one spell each turn! An instant/flash themed deck would be freaking sweet. Or taking lots of extra turns! (Or both...)

As for Kydele, I see her commonly used with Vial Smasher for the colors to tap for boatloads of mana with the black and red wheels. Presumably until you find a Staff of Domination effect to get infinite mana.

I don't really see any partners that would help stax, and i think that may be on purpose actually, since the RC/WotC might feel that stax, along with MLD and prison, are against the spirit of the format.
