All great points, but monowhite just lacks the consistency of the other colors.

Perhaps in casual to semi competitive metas you'll have a lot of success, but in cEDH, white is just terrible unless you're playing Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle or to a lesser extent Sram, Senior Edificer .

Very cool deck! Though not a cleric or demon, you might like Blood Speaker . Children of Korlis is a neat cleric that works nicely with Ravos, Doom Whisperer, Razaketh, and Vilis. The Children also have a fun place in the history of magic. Like the pentagram in the original art of Unholy Strength , Children of Korlis drew the ire of many parents for having the words "Sacrifice Children". Then there's the classic cleric combo: Daru Spiritualist + Shaman en-Kor , which allows you to gain an arbitrarily large amount of life with Starlit Sanctum. Toss in a Transmutation and you can use the Sanctum to take out an opponent with this combo. Other cards you might consider are Bishop of Binding , Blind Zealot , Custodi Soulcaller , Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle , and Heirloom Blade .

Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle and Chainer, Nightmare Adept . The absurdity I could produce would be horrifying.

Blazenitro Basalt + Mesmeric does indeed flip the library, but there are a couple reasons I have decided to pass on it for Seeker of Skybreak instead

Basalt does have a few benefits over Seeker though

  • Harder to remove permanent type
  • No summoning sickness, you can engage the combo right away
  • No colored mana cost requirement (this has never been an issue in this deck, but still worth noting)

If you want to play this deck, you could choose to run Basalt Monolith in place of Seeker, or you could run them both. I have opted to run just one, as the two piece library flipper combo is still going to be slower and harder to assemble than Hermit Druid by himself.

I'm not exactly sure how this would work out, but both Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle and Yomiji, Who Bars the Way might be decent aristocrats commanders.

Hissp on Commanders by Power Level [EDH Tier List]

Hi ShaperSavant,

I'm not sure if this is the best place for these discussions or somewhere on discord but...I have some additional thoughts on Mid Power commanders that should be moved up:

  1. Zndrsplt, Eye of Wisdom + Okaun, Eye of Chaos -- This deck Coinzzzzz made it to the final pod of a cEDH tournament as reported on reddit last week. It's a 1-card combo with Zndrsplt + Frenetic Efreet . Here's another list that adopts a Polymorph strategy: Zndrsplt & Okaun - Polydox Scepter (PRIMER).

  2. Llawan, Cephalid Empress -- Not sure if this slipped under the radar amidst the dust kicked up by the Paradox ban, but LLawan + Painter's Servant locks all opponents out of casting creatures, evening through Cavern of Souls , including Commanders. Can then assemble a Grindstone combo or perhaps Scepter combo. Here's a Scepter-less list I came across: Painter Llawan.

  3. Kambal, Consul of Allocation -- He's a must-answer stax piece for many cEDH lists in the command zone. A High-power list Kambal's tax collection **LCL Playoff** recently won a tournament/league as reported on reddit 2 weeks ago, with about a 50/50 cEDH/high-power composition. Here's a list with a very different approach (and cEDH staples! Kambal's Pact - Vilis, Broker of Blood.

  4. Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle -- I just really like this primer Worship's Reward - Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle; seems better than Sram to me.

Thanks for your consideration!

Took out Perpetual Timepiece from the sideboard and added Salvage Titan .

I'm actually surprised it took me long to make this substitution since the timepiece was for control and mill matchups and the titan is better in both cases.

As a bonus it's a recursive threat that can keep the deck's engine running (or smacking Karn) even against Karn, the Great Creator + Mycosynth Lattice unless they also have Ensnaring Bridge .

It also allows for some alternate win combos such as: Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle + Myr Retriever + Scrap Trawler + Cathodion +2x Salvage Titan +any egg.

With Teshar, retriever, trawler, cathodion and egg on the battlefield you cast the titan sacrificing cathodion, retriever and egg triggering Teshar, retriever cathodion and trawler. With Teshar you return the Cathodion to the battlefield, with the retriever you return a Titan to hand and with the trawler you return some eggs. With the mana from Cathodion you cast an egg returning the retriever then you can cast the Titan sacrificing the Titan on the battlefield, a retriever and the cathodion. With this plus some self-sacrificing eggs or creativity you can generate a lot of mana and draw your entire deck and win with Grinding Station and/or Spine of Ish Sah
