Another way to win from the Worldgorger, animate dead combo is to add a Sunscorched Desert as a land which is an easy way to slip in a damage loop. Another that wasn't yet mentioned is Cut / Ribbons. Some cool combos here though that i haven't seen yet!

Hey, what's the budget you have to make upgrades? Anje can be good with lots of madness cards or only a few. The first thing to consider is do you want to go all in with madness or just play a few good cards with madness? All madness is faster, cheaper, but less flexible. Only a few cards with madness is slower, more expensive, but more flexible, more options for deck strategies.

Madness is what makes Anje unique and with like 40 madness cards you can loot through your library fast which can set up combos/reanimation. Anje + Glint-Horn Buccaneer + Shadow of the Grave can be a budget win condition with lots of cards with madness. The more expensive Worldgorger combo can use two different cards with madness as the win condition: Avacyn's Judgment and the more difficult to pull off Bloodhall Priest.

The problem with this strategy is most madness cards are horrible, but are needed to untap Anje to loot more. Lots of cards with madness is a cheaper way to upgrade the precon because all cards with madness are budget options and you technically don't have to include the expensive price Worldgorger combo.

Do you want to play the Worldgorger combo? It's very good with Anje as an enabler for infinite mana and the fact that two cards with madness can be win conditions is helpful with Anje as Commander. The combo is however not budget, it's expensive. You'll want minimum $20: $10 Worldgorger, $5 Animate, $5 Dance.

Necromancy at $12 is better than both Animate and Dance since it can be cast at instant speed, but it adds more price for upgrades. Emergence Zone can be used with Animate or Dance to combo at instant speed. Cut / Ribbons and Sunscorched Desert are other win conditions with Worldgorder combo that work fine without having madness. The combo can be played in either a madness heavy direction or non madness direction.

Another direction to consider for upgrades is non madness, only playing a few cards with madness that are good when you discard them with Anje. The reason to choose this direction is the majority of cards you play are playable by themselves, not relying on madness with Anje's discard. The Worldgorger combo is just as good with this direction and you can include many other win conditions. Buccaneer is fine too, but not a combo win however without lots of cards with madness. There's lots more options to choose with this direction, other combos you could play or reanimation strategies. This direction will most likely be more expensive for upgrades, but it will be more flexible.

When I have a better idea of what kind of deck you want to make then if you would like I can give more advice.

One of my new favorite ones is a bit of a set up perse, but it can be devastating. It technically can go under infinite lifegain and draw, but definitely infinite damage.

Tatyova, Benthic Druid with Baral, Chief of Compliance Mystic Sanctuary and Sunscorched Desert in play. Desert not so much, since you can draw into it. Ghostly Flicker being reduced by baral makes it 2 Mana, bouncing desert and sanctuary, having sanctuary pull flicker back to the top of the library, the draw trigger from tatyova on the stack from desert, and loop to do it again.

Hey, Worldgorger Dragon combo could replace Iona. Emergence Zone could replace Sanctuary. Reanimation is a good secondary strategy with Kaalia and reanimation is what enablers Worldgorger combo. Bogardan Hellkite can be a win condition with the Worldgorger combo and Kaalia can cheat Hellkite onto the battlefield. The Worldgorger combo would give you an alternative way to win the game which has synergy with Kaalia and strategies you want to play with Kaalia.

Cards to consider adding for Worldgorger combo:

Other cards to consider adding:

You could upgrade some threats with Vilis, Broker of Blood and Doom Whisperer.

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Seraph Sanctuary
  • Dragonskull Summit
  • Clifftop Retreat
  • Isolated Chapel
  • Iona, Shield of Emeria
  • Archfiend of Depravity
  • Ob Nixilis, Unshackled
  • Lord of the Void
  • Angelic Arbiter
  • Baneslayer Angel
  • Merciless Eviction
  • Duelist's Heritage
  • Strionic Resonator
  • Ghostway
  • Utter End

Good luck with your deck.

I'd drop Sunscorched Desert for Ramunap Ruins and Hordeling Outburst for Goblin Bushwhacker, then you can play a fast 8whack goblin deck!

Hi! Nice deck. Maybe add Sunscorched Desert?

Another easy/cheap card you can swap in to fit with the Worldgorger Combo for a wincon is Sunscorched Desert. I would also recommend considering adding Glint-Horn Buccaneer because he synergizes really well with Anje.

If you're interested, take a look at my own budget cEDH list We're All Mad Here (budget cEDH).
