Vial Smasher the Fierce Discussion

RedUndead40 on Most explosive ramp in Sultai?

Ooh. I am considering switching my commander to Vial Smasher the Fierce+Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix so Umbral Mantle could easily go infinite with just my commander. Thanks!

Quietman988: I'm fond of allies, but there's just one, small problem: No tribal decks (See OP).

xrex479: It's ok. :) I feel like Wheel decks are better with Vial Smasher the Fierce and Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix at the helm.

Bhaal666: I don't like voltron, and I find Progenitus to be better in the 99. I'm going to settle on Child, which suits my style. Not sure about Chaos though.

GS10 on Thop Thop Thump [Breya, Etherium Shaper EDH]

@Derpingotter, yes, Breya, Etherium Shaper was banned has a commander, just like Vial Smasher the Fierce only in 1v1 Commander, format in which she is understandably broken.

This deck was built with Multiplayer Commander in mind which is the only Commander format I personally care about. To play 1v1 I still prefer modern. In multiplayer the last ban announcement came last month after Aether Revolt had time to sink in, and no changes were made to the banlist which leads me to believe Breya is safe in the format, since the sets that would strengthen her the most were just released and evaluated in that announcement. In fact, I believe no bans are going to be announced with Amonkhet either, since the panel which decides the EDH banlist is very conservative about banning cards and nothing is too broken in the format right now. And the main reason these cards are broken in 1v1 Commander has more to due with the life total rule change that they've made recently, than with any broken strategy in particular, IMO, but that's a conversation for another topic.

Long story short, Breya is and will be safe from the multiplayer ban hammer and rightfully so. If you do like the list and want to build your own, you should be safe ;)

There are so many fun cards you could add here that work with Nekusar: Ob Nixilis Reignited, Forced Fruition, Otherworld Atlas, etc.

I understand you said you weren't trying to build around him as the main win con, but he's too much fun not to imo. Here's my Nekusar deck: Mindrazer No Chaser if you want to take a look.

Otherwise I might consider a different Grixis commander as there are a lot of great ones. The newest one I've done is a partner edh deck with Vial Smasher the Fierce and Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist that focuses on chaos, but it's also an awesome duo for control (might take mine that direction someday). My chaos deck is here: Random Acts of Randomness

Thrasios, Triton Hero + Vial Smasher the Fierce could be fun.

Omnath, Locus of Rage, The Gitrog Monster and Ob Nixilis, the Fallen as you said + Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest, Ashnod's Altar, Amulet of Vigor, Patron of the Moon, Meloku the Clouded Mirror, Trade Routes, Splendid Reclamation, possibly Worm Harvest definitely a few lands higher than a normal deck with some extra ramp of course, and some fetch lands even if it's just Evolving Wilds / Terramorphic Expanse and a few Panoramas for a budget build, and a few cycling lands like Lonely Sandbar or whatever. Possibly Crucible of Worlds and/or Life from the Loam for less budget builds.

That would be my take on where to start & hf

@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 :)

One suggestion a friend had was Deadeye Navigator and Palinchron. DeN can interact with Archaeomancer, Rune-Scarred Demon, etc which is fun. Thoughts?

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!
