Vial Smasher the Fierce Discussion

@Lilbrudder I put in a few more of the extra expensive rocks, plus Kiora's Follower, Ponder, and dropped a land. With thrasios' ability I can always dump the mana somewhere, but you do get flooded so I see what you're saying. Last night I was able to use Jace, Vryn's Prodigy Flip to filter away lands into gas. Loved it. What other cantrips do you suggest besides Brainstorm/Ponder etc?
It's funny and counterintuitive to drop the avg cmc with a commander like Vial Smasher the Fierce; but you don't need her on the field to win. Usually it's infinite mana into Thrasios, Triton Hero, or it takes too many turns in a row and people give up
Ad Nauseam and Necropotence are interesting. I do own multiple necro, but no naus. I initially left them out since I'm running so many lands that hurt me, along with a couple rocks. At the point you play them in the game: you're going for the gold! I'm scared I'll draw Ad Nauseam with like 13 life haha. Gitrog and another high cmc card would hafta come out for them. The wheels idea is cool too. A lot of ubrg players are doing it
@Hi_1m_R0b3rt thank you! Definitely earned yourself some upvotes on decks
@Sloppie I've had Aetherflux Reservoir on my mind for a while now. It's another card that if you don't drop as you're about to set up; it can dud late game. I'd like to try it though. What should I take out?
I'd seen your deck before, and I'm sure I'll be checking it out again :)

Really nice deck! I'm building something similar to this right now and I've been wondering how easy it could be to hit delirium with grim flayer. Can you do it consistently?
Also, have you thought about delve spells? Things like Tombstalker or Gurmag Angler ?They can hit the board as early as turn 4 with very little effort and they don't even have to resolve to deal tremendous amount of damage with Vial Smasher the Fierce. I also happen to play french commander and know that a 5/5 body is not something you can left unchecked either!

I don't think it fits my playstyle that well, I play goblin aggro in modern, but in edh I just don't like that type of deck. Currently I"m making a Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix/Vial Smasher the Fierce deck, if you want I'll post the decklist once it's made. Also, mono black control, how playing against something like that?

Terramorphic Expanse is in there because I haven't finished the mana base, as it is the last thing I do and I plan on adding in some basics too take out some of the dual color lands that come into play tapped.
Vial Smasher the Fierce works well with cascade because the first spell I want to cast each turn wants to be high costed. But as a whole he was iffy from the get go. So I will cut him.
Tasigur, the Golden Fang is good recursion and a cascade of 6 mana that I can cast for 1.
Sangromancer, Nath of the Gilt-Leaf and Waste Not are all in there to make the Wheel of Fortune type cards better and give me more value from using them. That's also why Burgeoning and Exploration are there. I play a wheel, draw 7 cards and then play 2 lands on my turn and third on an opponents.
Laboratory Maniac is in there because of my 7 wheel cards, plus all the cascading I should be doing. Almost every card I cast might be hitting for 1-2 more spells. I could easily burn through my deck relatively quickly.
I will have to do some research but I don't think that there are many Omnath, Locus of Mana type cards.

Do you realize you have no basic lands? If that's intentional, cool, but then take out Terramorphic Expanse and it's twin.
How does Bloom Tender work? If you have Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder out, and you tap it, do you get 4 mana- one of each color? Or 4 mana of one color? Or one mana of one of those 4 colors, as you choose?
I think we could look at cutting;Vial Smasher the Fierce, Tasigur, the Golden Fang, Sangromancer, Nath of the Gilt-Leaf, Laboratory Maniac (sideboard against mill/control), Horizon Chimera--> Mostly due to them either not helping your main goal of a big/bad Yidris, or not being worth their cost, and I'm sure we could find better picks for those slots.
Waste Not (You have very little discard outlets, same reasoning I got rid of Nath), instead of Dissipation Field run No Mercy, you have so many triggers for drawing cards- is Coastal Piracy worth it? I think we could cut this and a few more. Between Burgeoning and Exploration, I think you should cut both- just based off of looking at other decks here (everyone expects them to be great, and always ends up taking them out due to lack luster performance)- but at the very least, choose between the two.
Your enchantment list is gonna be hard to cut man, they all look sweet haha
I think an important thing to add would be some way to keep your mana throughout phases and steps... Omnath, Locus of Mana-ish, but with other colors haha

I'm incredibly indecisive when it comes to choosing a Commander or a Strategy. I've built several commander deck so far including Leovold, Emmissary of Trest, Breya, Etherium Shaper, Thassa, God of the Sea, and I'm currently playing Vial Smasher the Fierce and Thrasios, Triton Hero.
Although It's too soon to say how I feel about Vial Smasher and Thrasios, None of my previous commanders woooed me and quickly became boring. I want to have a backup plan/secondary deck in case Vial Smasher/Thrasios doesn't work out.
So your job is to tell me who your favorite commander is, why he/she/it is your favorite, and what are your favorite strategies/archtypes to build around and why.
Think of it as a sales pitch. Your the dealer and I'm the buyer lol
