Due to the banning of Paradox Engine, I will be substituting Sword of the Paruns . This may be temporary if I can find a better card that could function as an instant win. Sword is the only other option I can think of that will at least give me Infinite Mana.

Have you considered Sword of the Paruns as another uptapping effect similar to Umbral Mantle ?

Such an interesting deck concept lol. Magus of the coffees goes infinite with Sword of the Paruns also you can get another combo by adding Phyrexian Devourer with Necrotic Ooze + Triskelion + Phyrexian Devourer :)

Yes, as long as no players pay for Smothering Tithe , Sword of the Paruns and Smothering Tithe go infinite with Selvala. However, I don't feel that this is a good reason to play Sword of the Paruns , as Umbral Mantle serves the same purpose.

Bloom Tender with Umbral Mantle or Sword of the Paruns would be good in here. Basically lets you immediately combo off with sisay grab your Legacy Weapon or Chain Veil combo pieces to finish out the game. Just a potential combo piece in the deck.

Hi SP3CTR3_chelts,

I think I might try Gaddock Teeg ; it seems good against a lot of the cEDH meta. I'm just concerned with it preventing my own spells from being cast.

As for Seedcradle Witch , I don't think its combo with only Wirewood Channeler makes it good enough. I'd rather play Sword of the Paruns if I wanted a combo piece that also is good at reusing Selvala, and I cut that a while ago for being to slow and mana intensive.

Finally, as fun as Panglacial Wurm sounds, I enjoy being friends with the judges and players at my LGS, and would like to not give them this headache of an interaction. In addition, it would only work once before people knew how to deal with it, and the free scry whenever I search my library doesn't seem worth the card slot.

Thank you for your suggestions!

Ok! Sweet build so far! Let me see if I can hell you out. I am a fan of the title by the way.

So Naturally, Feldon’s ability focuses on a few things. They are:

1) it triggers ETBs and graveyard abilties

2) it is a “tap” ability


Keeping these three things in mind I would suggest the following, some of which may not suit your play-style, but alas! This is why they are suggestions!

Creatures like Inferno Titan , Godo, Bandit Warlord (only useful if you’re running equipments), Bloodfire Colossus , and Zealous Conscripts have value in entering or dying. The new Ilharg, the Raze-Boar may be of semi-interest to you even though he doesn’t have an ETB he is another tool that helps trigger ETBs like Feldon.

I think potentially the most key card you are missing is Sundial of the Infinite so you can keep the token copies that Feldon makes. Plus it’s an artifact you can try and recur since red can do that rather well. In regards to recursion I think you could mull over Goblin Welder and Scrap Mastery . They seen like they could work for you. Goblin Engineer from the soon to come out Modern horizons will be an auto-include for this deck too.

Krark-Clan Ironworks may be better for you than Phyrexian Altar . There would be no problems with running both but aince this deck is artifact heavy I’d recommend the former over the latter.

There is also Umbral Mantle , Thousand-Year Elixir , and Sword of the Paruns to help untap Feldon.

Anyway, this is not to say you dont already have some awesome stuff going on already! If you want my opinion on what to take out for some new stuff let me know. Id be happy to help.

There's also Sword of the Paruns , Umbral Mantle and Paradox Engine for more untap shenanigans! I also enjoy running good ol' Mana Flare to speed up games and set the world on fire. I'm always trying to get as much mana as possible in my mono-red decks.

Great deck! +1
