"One-card wincons" to consider: Insurrection , Expropriate , Painful Quandary , Rise of the Dark Realms , Revel in Riches , Cut / Ribbons . Perhaps Clone Legion , Rite of Replication , Mogis, God of Slaughter , Hour of Promise , Blatant Thievery , Grave Betrayal , or Mind's Dilation .

One thing to think about is getting Nicol Bolas flipped and maybe joined by the other planeswalkers and casting Obliterate , Jokulhaups , Devastation , or Decree of Annihilation . Almost guaranteed ultimates. Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God would be the best--proxy for now and include in first build?

BMHKain on A Primordial God needs your ...

I'm BUMPING this trash.

I now have a slate for my Tetzimoc, Primal Death deck, I still need help with my Kruphix, God of Horizons deck, as well as my Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder CHAOS deck as well. I even will Deckcycle Kruphix in case anyone cares. Also, the new Chandras from Core Set 2020 look awesome. Maybe a Semi-Competitive Burn Deck has hope after all? That said, I have one last thing to say in this comment. It's about the meter, but what's it for I'll mention after these decks are done. That said, I got a Superfriends deck to handle all on my own...

@Burg+1: O_o Damn. Should've known I didn't need a dork after all... & That Smokestack + Assemble the Legion combo might be good... Welp, I just got served right here. & I thank you for that. Really. Alright, I'll put in Combo 2 now. But, I still have to finish one certain deck (2 if you count Tetzimoc, Primal Death .). Well, thanks for helping, man. If you'll excuse me though, A Primordial God, & a Dino God of the Dead is still in the works; & I'll have to focus my attention from there. Thanks for talking though. :D

(If Infinity can exceed a limit... We are that limit...)

Kruphix, One who X-costs Infinity itself...

Commander / EDH* BMHKain


After canning my Ezuri, Claw of Progress deck, I decided to do a Take 2 on the othe Simic CMDR I wanted to make: Kruphix, God of Horizons . Last time, I was aiming to make an -cost Deck utilizing Infinite mana. With stuff that can make infinite amounts of this, & Infinite Card Draw, etc, I now leave it to you again to decide a Primordial's fate...

  1. Many say not all X-Cost cards are created equal. I actually agree on this. What X costs do you think is worth chopping? What to replace?

  2. Many infinite combos are all over; ranging to various Infinite Mana & Infinite Land Untaps, to Endless Draw, & other crazy schnanigans. What to keep, improve upon, or kill?

  3. I love Mana Doublers here. Mana Reflection , Doubling Cube , Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger ... Are there any others of note to put here?

  4. Is Rashmi, Eternities Crafter even worth adding? the cEDH community stated it can interract w/ exiled cards. How though, & is it worth it?

  5. Any misc. other cards worth replacing? Just asking to be sure.

  6. This deck is in mid-level power, even though the last time I did this, it was nearly 100% Competitiveness. How should I get back to that very calibur of power? & how's the Competitive Meter system doing? Has it been even worked on since last time I did Kruphix?

Well, thanks for the help thus far. Can't believe I'm getting close enough to doing a Sliver Tribe Deck; just a couple more though...

It's ironic I have standards w/ Morophon, the Boundless . Maybe I should place it somewhere else; I mean it's technically 5c; better make use w/ the whole damn Pie. That said, I'm still grinding out on what I still have to make though here. & yes, I'm making that Vorthos Deck after nobody was able to notice that simple thing. & I'm going to upgrade myself for damn sure. When all depends of how well my dad's car will be fixed (Hey, family is important too! Don't be a fool & have all the audacity to oppose them.) As for Morophon, I'll keep these rules in this post in case one still cares; you might as well do what you intended to do in the first place anyways:

  1. Popular tribes I will always say no to.

  2. If any Creature Type is missing even one color of the pie, it's out.

  3. Tribe Leaders for already existing 5c tribes means those tribes are out also.

  4. Eldrazi = (省略) OMITTED. The Tribe must have a good balance of all five colors, & one Eldrazi is meaningless.

  5. Be original! Think of a tribe that is underrated, & is good!

  6. Secondary Types are allowed, but remember to use a right balance of creatures of such design; this is why JoshLeeKwai was the first out in GameKnights Ep 27.

These are the regulations. I will except no exceptions to any of the 6 Tables of Morophon, Tribe Evaluator

But, for now, I still need help w/ Kruphix, & I'm working on both my Superfriends/Avengers, & cEDH Boros Deck as well; maybe I'll resume making my Pauper Deck if anyone wants to help its status to Turn 2 Wins. If anyone wants to help me out on that...

Especially for Kruphix, I'm trying to find pieces for a combo involving Ashnod's Altar for infinite ; though I guess cutting some things is also good, but I also have a mission from Kamigawa's Kami's as I advertently got myself into a mess where my infatuation towards a mere Gauge maybe my downfall. Thanks. Mono-. X/

That said, nobody's been helping me out on my Kruphix Infinite deck. Questions are in order.

  1. What X-Effects & other cards aren't pulling their weight?

  2. What cards could also do good here?

  3. Some combos here are awesome, but aside from the WIP Ashnod's Altar combo, what other combos would you suggest? I'm literally searching actual Simic Combos as a desperate tactic...

Well, that's all I'm doing for now. I'll do my own thing, & update other things in the meanwhile... Later.

dehli on Tezzeret, Master of the Brawl

2 months ago

I've been having a lot of fun with him! He's really powerful once he gets going. Mishra's Self-Replicator and Sai, Master Thopterist make him amazing. I think Hostage Taker is a great idea! I could exile an artifact or creature for two mana (as long as Tezzeret, Master of the Bridge is out). I think I'll also put in Tetzimoc, Primal Death for more creature based removal.

That's a good point about One with the Machine . So far, I've cast it for 5 with Gilded Lotus and 4 with Traxos, Scourge of Kroog , and the third time I kept it in my hand because I didn't have a good artifact on the field. I might swap it out for Jace, Ingenious Mind-Mage .

I'm still experimenting with it. Let me know if you decide to build it! I think focusing on creatures, artifacts, and planeswalkers is the way to go because of Tezzeret's affinity.

Well, Jace did get a Triumph after all. But even w/ (Finale of Promise), I still don't know if Sorin vs Nahiri will ever end in a way besides either or both dead on the spot.

Anyways, I'm trying to edit up two decks at the current time to achieve their Max Competitive status (Only 35%. -_-), & my Tetzimoc, Primal Death Deck is almost done as well; I just need 7 cuts; I'll handle this myself.

Despite this, nobody seems to be itching on my ( Ezuri, Claw of Progress +1/+1 Counter Deck.) & I'm going to have to ask AlwaysSleepy again to find more stuff for a Doomsday Package. I only have 3/5 bits confirmed. I just need 2 more; and/or a way to crack the pile open.

All that, set in stone, I'll have to wait on MORTAL ENGINES Vorthos for now... God be damned if Hazoret becomes an Eternal God... X/

BMHKain on Several Decks needing Help

Just updated the OP. I'll ask AlwaysSleepy one more time for the Doomsday pile; as I now realize, the Exile Zone thing is just asking too much. 3/5 cards in the pile are already shown. Though I wonder if anyone wanted to help w/ the other Deck still in the works of being Cut & Revised (The Deck). Also, Who to choose alongside Tana, the Bloodsower ? Akiri, Line-Slinger , or Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder ? From there, I'll start the Equip-Voltron Project. That said, I'm almost complete w/ the Tetzimoc, Primal Death , deck, & I'm liking it. But what to do w/ all other things mentioned earlier? Any ideas?

This is going to be a long one. So I'll have to make what I'm saying brief.

Yep, Ezuri, Claw of Progres. With a low Competitive Scale, 5 cards to cut, & potentially replacements; I wonder when WAR's Walkers are known for Static abilities more terrifying than mere Emblems, & that's in Uncommon alone; I'd like to get some cuts/replacings of actual cards. Something tells me, this can be better, but I dunno where to start w/ such Ascendancy... Any ideas would be great.

I am currently trying to make a Tetzimoc, Primal Death deck on my own, though even though I need no help, progress is EXCRUCIATINGLY SLOW, but do believe I can at least do that myself.

I also plan to make a Partners-Based Naya () Equipment-Voltron Deck. Tana, the Bloodsower is confirmed as Partner 番号1 (No. 1), & Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder as 番号2 (No. 2). I'm actually on a bind w/ this actually; but I wonder how to make this kind of deck Equip-Based, & Voltron/GoLion based.

Expect a lot of Equips; Why ol' Bruse is there, when he doesn't truly support the strictly Equip subtheme for Voltron I dunno...

1000% Spark Storm (EDH Superfriends Primer)

Commander / EDH* BMHKain


& yet again, I'm working on a Superfriends deck; even as I cancelled the whole primer idea...

Also, if anyone wanted to know the Doomsday Pile in ; I might as well get 2 specific of one of the following...

Tormenting Voice + Second Sunrise + Conjurer's Bauble + Lion's Eye Diamond + Grapeshot & Faithless Looting as the card to crack open the pile.

Yep; I might as well get 2 Lion's Eye Diamond .

All these decks still need help; & I'm still working on trying to make a LUDESIA themed Vorthos/Melvin Deck...

So, anymore ideas?
