Looks really solid and super fun. +1

You don’t think either Lightning Greaves or Swiftfoot Boots would be beneficial? Just seems like Lazav is such a key piece he’s gonna be getting targeted a ton.

Gravecrawler, Death Baron, Obelisk of Urd, Call to the Grave, Raving Dead, Zombie Master, Rite of Replication.

Runed Stalactite makes your boss a zombie for zombie bonuses.

Your zombies will die. Your boss can bring back zombies. You have to protect your boss in case of multiple exiles. Alexi's Cloak effectively counters whatever was going to kill him then gives him shroud. Neurok Stealthsuit can do the same. Swiftfoot Boots etc.

No Rest for the Wicked and Wail of the Nim protect from board wipes (mostly saving your boss so he has mana to bring back a couple creatures instead of being recast).

Does that planeswalker actually help?

Except it is way easier than you think.

A) bouncing is pretty easy to do in UB edh. Especially considering most edhs run either Unsummon or some other 'return' to hand spell or a card like Deadeye Navigator, which would exile her at instant speed.

B) Instant speed sacrifice cards do exist. Having her in the grave is much easier to return than in the library. Especially considering you have access to cards like Phyrexian Reclamation

C) Even if you don't use either of those, you can easily just send her back to the command zone as a replacement for the library trigger in edh if she's your general.

Yes, you have to set up a bit. But all her set up is pretty easy to do over all, especially considering Swiftfoot Boots would probably end up making it not matter when you cast her.

Not to mention Helm of the Host, Sakashima the Impostor and Lazav, the Multifarious will probably be played along side her.

I didn't say invincible, I said some edh players are going to cry.

Sun Titan already fills the same role Auriok Survivors would. I want to keep the amount of 6+cmc cards in the deck as low as possible.


Swiftfoot Boots, Champion's Helm, or Hammer of Nazahn. Keeping removal off of Balan is important.

With slower/land light opening hands, I'll likely burn the first tutor on Sword of the Animist.


This deck doesn't want Auras. They don't give Balan double strike and they don't play well with protection.

Spirits on Budget Rafiq of the Many - EDH $50

In your maybeboard I like:

Giltspire Avenger Exalted and can deter attackers, but 3 colors and $1+ makes sense to be a cut.

I would make room for Battlegrace Angel, has exalted and gives your Exalted Attacker lifelink. $0.56!

Cathedral of War was the land I was thinking about Friday, but it's $1.50! Can't include.

Sovereigns of Lost Alara is very powerful, tutors the exact aura you need for any situation, and probably makes them unblockable or lifelink in the process. With every strike it becomes lethal. $5 hard to account for but might be a way.

Rhox Charger is exalted and he has built in Trample, 3/3 Exalted for CMC4 isn't too bad for $0.25.

Stoic Angel would be an auto-include for me, especially with all of your guys making creatures come into play tapped. Swing with your Vigilance (Flying) Angel alone, and avoid any type of counter-strike from opponents. No going to find a better card for $0.50.

Grunn, the Lonely King is another option, he's CMC6 for 5/5 no Trample, but when he attacks, Stack his triggered ability, and then layer on all the Exalted, after the exalted get added, he doubles himself. If you have the kicker 3 a 10/10 for 9 is still ok. Needs a Rancor but he's pretty reasonable, especially with all the built in evasion effects.

Suprised you don't have Knotvine Paladin, he gets +1 from the Exalted ability, and stacks a second +1 for each "untapped" creature, which they all are, so doubles the Exalted when he attacks, another good finisher like Grunn, the Lonely King when evasion is available.

Cold-Eyed Selkie can draw some cards, since your not using blue much you don't have as much draw, since he's still works. Also if you can Exalted and Islandwalk someone, can repopulate your hand.

Swords to Plowshares is the best removal in Budget for $1.

Open the Armory is another Swiftfoot Boots, very important.

Farseek is good, can pull that Island for you.

Sigil of Valor is the exalted equipment because it doubles the Exalted effects!.

Behemoth Sledge is another (slightly worse) Loxodon Warhammer.

Simic Signet/Azorius Signet might be good for getting the as well.

Sigil of the Nayan Gods not bad, because if it useless, it has Cycling.

I'll continue further review later, off the top of my head,

Reciprocate generally bad, once it's hit your life it's too late, someone (situational) it will be good, but most creatures you NEED to remove aren't attacking, and if they are, the specifically have to attack you, and you have to choose to let them hit your life. Condemn is better because it can attack anyone, and doesn't have to connect to your life specifically.

Skarrg Goliath is too high CMC to be useful, and his bloodlust is also too high CMC.

More to come later, I used to have a Daxos of Meletis deck, so I have some ideas, but I utilized the quite a bit more. Fun Selesnya build. +1.

I wrote a ton and then realized I should probably ask what decks your playgroup plays, because idk if I should be recommending graveyard hate when your opponents might not utilize their graves. Another example would be a green deck ramping really fast, in which case I would maybe recommend something like Magus of the Balance or land destruction like Armageddon to screw over the ramp that they've focused on early in the game.

Maybe I'm not getting something here, but what is Transcendence doing here? How does it pull its weight in any way? If its just to stall when you get to critically low health, why not Resolute Archangel instead?

Etherwrought Page looks incredibly slow, especially for 4 mana. The life gain is super small, the damage is even smaller, and if you're using it for the filter ability, go with Search for Azcanta  Flip instead.

Necromancer's Covenant is decent lifegain + it hates a graveyard for you.

No Solemn Simulacrum? This deck probably needs all the ramp it can get.

Identity Crisis >>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Reap Intellect.

Darksteel Forge seems weird here, even if it does keep your commander alive (and I guess your mana rocks too, but I wouldn't deem those as needing protection at the point when you've got 9 mana that you can drop on the forge). I think I'd go with a protection equipment, like Darksteel Plate, and if not that then Lightning Greaves or Swiftfoot Boots.

No Austere Command? Its like Merciless Eviction but probably better.

I think I'd go Words of Waste over Words of Wind. Wind is just going to let them return a good ETB permanent to their hand, or a land if the game has gone late enough. Can't imagine it'll ever force something like a threatening creature or Planeswalker back to the hand. Not sure if I'd actually even recommend Words of Waste with your draw capabilities in this deck, but I'd definitely say get rid of Words of Wind.

Aura of Silence is solid all around. Its a nightmare for enchant/artifact decks, and otherwise its 3 mana sorcery speed to destroy an artifact/enchantment already on the field that can be cast preemptively.

Binding Grasp seems weird. Not sure what is good about it over something like Bribery or Acquire, and perhaps even Sower of Temptation in some ways (depends on how much removal that opponent runs, I suppose).

Praetor's Grasp seems really slow, and if you're looking to just rob them of a card, Sadistic Sacrament is nuts for that (especially for removing combos!). Life's Finale also doubles as a board wipe if that was your goal. If you really wanted to play the card yourself instead, then just go with Bribery, or put that good card that they have in your deck too, because paying 3 more mana for nearly any card seems S L O W.

Speaking of board wipes, your deck is pretty low on them. You've got single target removal like Darksteel Mutation but if you're up against 3 people, how much is that gonna help? I think I'd rather pay the 2 more mana for Wrath of God and all of its cousins.

Pulse of the Dross, how often does that come in handy? They're gonna reveal the 3 least important cards in their hand, and with such a slow deck I imagine you'll almost always have more cards in hand than most players.

Spellseeker is just good imo, I'd recommend it to nearly anyone running blue.

Depending on the decks you play against, Containment Priest can be an even better counterspell (against reanimation) that not only disrupts your opponents but also offers you a chump blocker.

You also don't seem to have a win-con, as I see the previous commenter mentioned, but perhaps your win-con could just be considered disrupting your opponents so much with your deck + your commander's ability that you drain them of all of their value, in which case you definitely need more protection for your commander than the Darksteel Forge and counterspells you're running.

Kaleo42 on Drawing Your Last Breath

So I notice your group's ban list is focused on the "feel bad" cards like game warping fatties and land destruction. This means your land is relatively safe and a deck focused on drawing cards can easily function on 34 or 35. I would build it with 33 but I see you want to get to a few select top end cards. I would cut these lands in order: Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep, Rakdos Carnarium, Izzet Boilerworks, Crosis's Catacombs, and Dimir Aqueduct.

High cost cards can be fun but it's important to balance their impact with the fact that drawing too many of them can stunt your game play. Cruel Ultimatum immediately jumps out at me as a fun card but ultimately lacking in the impact. Targeting a single player and being super heavy both in cmc and color requirements makes the risk to reward ratio not in your favor.

Jaya and Nicol Bolas both fall in a similar camp of cost outweighing their impact. Of the two a greater argument can be made for Jaya pumping out spells and drawing cards but that triple red is rough. Keep in mind the big goal here is to force draw absurd amounts of cards, each high cost and color intense spell you hit is a speed bump in that card drawing engine.

Dominus of Fealty and Thraximundar are a pretty high cost to invest into things that are off strategy. Nezahal, Primal Tide is in a similar boat but if your play group creates a need for a 7/7 uncounterable then it’s a fine inclusion. Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker is strategy adjacent but the slot can probably be put to better use. I also don’t like Guiltfeeder but I recognize that is likely do to my meta shaping my opinion of it.

Cards I would look at adding

Toxic Deluge over Flaying Tendrils for similar slot but higher power level.

Time Spiral over Time Reversal since it's lower cmc and much stronger.

Vampiric Tutor and maybe Imperial Seal would help smooth out the deck's performance.

Swiftfoot Boots are better than General's Kabuto.

Anvil of Bogardan I am surprised isn't already in here.

I would run Izzet Guildmage over Nivix Guildmage if you want the dual casting. I don't think you need the looting at that mana cost.

Waste Not does beautiful things with all the wheels on this bus. In the same vein Liliana's Caress and Megrim would be fun.

Memory Jar is another great wheel.

Psychosis Crawler is too on strategy not to include.

Sunder is great in decks like this but your group would probably ban it in a heartbeat based on your current ban list.

Reverberate, Twincast, and Dualcaster Mage can act as counterspells and double your wheels among other things.

You’re already fairly deep in artifacts so a mana rock ramp package would massively increase speed and consistency. Sol Ring, Mana Crypt, (maybe) Mana Vault, Rakdos Signet, Dimir Signet, Izzet Signet, Thought Vessel, Chrome Mox, and Mox Diamond.

Jace, the Mindsculptor, Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip, and if I am reading your meta correctly Ob Nixilis Reignited would be good walkers to include.

Vandalblast if your playgroup uses a healthy amount of artifact ramp.

Spell Pierce, Flusterstorm, Mana Drain, and Swan Song are the only counters I would recommend because I can see that’s not the direction you want to go too deep into.

Dark Ritual and Cabal Ritual are great at getting your pacing off on the right foot and Past in Flames could really tie it all together.

No Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots? Pretty sure if you don't add these your opponents are just gonna focus fire your Medomai before he can attack.

Also, as a flying creature, if you're playing a 4 player game, odds are not everyone is able to block your Medomai when he attacks, which makes the enchantments in your deck that make creatures unblockable a little redundant in my opinion.
