Sorry for taking so long to respond, I haven't checked back on here for a bit.

imoutogetyou I've been thinking of cutting Malfegor, but it has saved me a lot of times. I'll thinking about it though!

Barsan I mainly didn't include the tempt cards because my playgroup has become pretty stingy with them, so they never accept any of the offerings. I do like Tempt with Reflections a lot, but Tempt with Vengeance tends to cause a board stalemate and Tempt with Immortality tends to cause one of my opponents to get one of their game-ending creatures back.

Coward_Token Sygg, River Cutthroat is a great idea! My only concern is that it becomes fairly obvious what I am trying to do, since my main goal with this deck is to cause people to lose life while looking as unassuming as possible. The same goes for Bloodchief Ascension but to a higher degree. I like Curtains' Call a lot actually, and I might just replace Deadly Designs with it as Deadly Designs never seems to work well, however Force of Will is far, far outside of my budget range.

Chill_Casual I like where you are going with this! I personally like to keep Browbeat because it's more of a political card than anything; my opponents can choose to let me draw cards which makes the card draw a bit less intimidating, but evoke cards are definitely great with Vial Smasher. Smoke would be too annoying of a card for a deck like this, since it inhibits every player so they'd want to target/kill me to get rid of it. I've been trying to get my hands on a Blasphemous Act since it's obviously great in this deck, so thanks for the suggestions!

Storm Crow is so busted, if only it were legendary, but a fun legend is Sygg, River Cutthroat it looks like you have plenty of evasion and he triggers when your opponents hit other opponents.

Seeing as they also synergize with e.g. Vial Smasher, how about Sygg, River Cutthroat and/or Bloodchief Ascension? Dunno if they'll draw too much hate.

Sorry, Inkfathom Infiltrator and Sygg, River Cutthroat can't be in your deck, there out of your color identity since they contain black which is not in you're commanders converted mana cost. And I recommend Urza's Incubator, Kiora's Follower, Stonybrook Banneret, Enclave Cryptologist, Empress Galina, and Mirror of the Forebears

I have a Zada, Hedron Grinder that I keep at a pretty low power level.Also my first real EDH deck was Krenko, Mob Boss. I really love goblin tribal, but I am thinking of taking goblins a step further with a Sygg, River Cutthroat. Has anyone here done an EDH deck with sygg?

I currently have Edgar Markov, Breya, Meren, Kynaios and Tiro, and Mairsil sleeved up and ready to play. I'm thinking of taking Mairsil apart to build a dimir style midrange reanimator deck. I'm stuck between Sygg, River Cutthroat for easier control and more value from attacks, Nekusar, the Mindrazer to wheel into reanimation and to be annoying, and Taigam, Sidisi's Hand for filtering and targeted removal on a stick.

I start building one, then switch to another midway. So I'm left a huge pile of cards that do nothing together. SOS please send help.

I havent tried Sygg, River Cutthroat, but I doubt I will. There are much better ways of drawing cards and the two drop slot is very cluttered at the moment.

To help deal with removal, I will probably include Kopala, Warden of Waves over Prime Speaker Zegana. There is not much action in the three drop slot, and this fits the bill.

Also a few Mana Leaks and another Kopala in the board could help deal with decks running more sweepers and/or removal.

Thanks for the comments! Not sure what sideboard cards are the best in blue-green. Perhaps some input on that would be helpful!

I've had a lot of fun with Sygg, River Cutthroat - great card on the play turn 2, against any opponent who would like to fetch-shock.

Disappointed over Cursecatcher? ok. It's not like it's a game-changer or anything. But it's enough to push mass removal a turn back, sometimes even allowing your creatures to grow big enough to survive Pyroclasm/Anger of the Gods. How do you plan to deal with mass removal - there's no counterspells or anything in your deck?
