Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle Discussion

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 .

- Basalt Monolith produces , and we have a hard time dumping that mana. Our curve is very low, and the only spells we run that include generic are Armageddon and Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle , as well as arguably the X cost creature tutors.
- Basalt Monolith will be taxed by Kataki, War's Wage
- Basalt doesn't untap itself after we use it outside of combo
- Seeker of Skybreak has a body, which means it can be pumped via Anafenza, the other Anafenza, or Elesh Norn
- Seeker is an elf, relevant for Elvish Archdruid and Priest of Titania
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 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:
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).
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.
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.
Thanks for your consideration!

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.
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
