Teferi's Moat Discussion

Probably start with 93 more cards, some of which should be Sun Titan, Replenish, Leyline of the Void, Open the Vaults, Teferi's Realm, Teferi's Moat, Standstill maybe. Lands would be solid too, although Scrubland might just get you there every time. :P

It does.

Attacks are declared against the team as a whole, and it's not until the Combat Damage step that the attacking team decides which opponent a creature deals its combat damage to.

Of note, the text from Sandwurm Convergence is actually used as an example in Rule 810.7c:

As the declare attackers step begins, the active team declares attackers. If an effect of an object controlled by a defending player prohibits a creature from attacking him or her, that creature can't attack the defending team. The active team has one combined attack, and that set of attacking creatures must be legal as a whole. See rule 508.1.

Example: One player in a Two-Headed Giant game controls Teferi's Moat, which says "As Teferi's Moat enters the battlefield, choose a color." and "Creatures of the chosen color without flying can't attack you." Creatures of the chosen color without flying can't attack that player's team.

Thanks though!

Nice deck. I like the Enchanted Evening synergy with Cleansing Meditation.

The only card I could think of that might be helpful would be Sphinx's Revelation but you already have ample card draw so, not really necessary.

Ooh, Teferi's Moat possibly too, to stay in line with your protection theme.

i prefer Teferi's Moat it's more or less the same thing, except i dont have to take out a loan from the bank to purchase it.

Alright, I'll make a list of pillowfort cards that you may want to consider. Remember that a pillow fort is not just about taxing people that attack you, it's also about making clear that it's to their disadvantage to spend their resources on you rather than someone else. Taxing is extremely effective early, but later in the game it becomes less relevant.

To counteract this, you can include some cards that demonstrate that when something happens to you, the one who did it has major repercussions (aka rattlesnakes). Take Aura Thief, Archon of Justice and Academy Rector, as well as your Karmic Justice as prime examples of this. Another good one is the white equivalent of grave pact: Martyr's Bond. Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker fulfils a similar role. Last but not least is Dissipation Field.

Then you also have true protection. Cards that specifically state that you cannot be harmed: Solitary Confinement is the best example, but you also have lite versions in Crawlspace and Teferi's Moat. Stormtide Leviathan can work too, but it's very expensive and colour heavy.

The last point I wish to make concerns Privileged Position and its interaction with Sterling Grove.

Overall, the list looks very nice! It's just that people now understand that taxing them is your way of earning time and that you should be considered as a potential big threat late in the game. So the best course of action is to take you out first. No pillow fort can handle a coalition of 3 other players just by taxing.

On a sidenote, how does the deck win???

Crawlspace Norn's Annex Teferi's Moat Blind Obedience Narset, Enlightened Master and Dissipation Field are all cards you could consider. I like the deck but just know that the planeswalker will be your only friends when you play this lol

GD Merfolk! I have a merfolk EDH with Sygg and I luvv it, but it just doesn't keep up with super aggro decks unfortunately. They aren't terrible in multi-player, but in heads up merfolk EDH can be very disappointing. Trust me, I've tried most notable cards in it and in every configuration. I highly recommend cards like Inundate, Wash Out, Teferi's Moat, AEtherize, Opposition. Also, True-Name Nemesis is almost a must! Still +1 from me because I've been there.
