Detholusin, the Anhedonist Overseer and the Synedrion of Witch-Maw

Waiting the new 4 colors commanders product, I submit a witch-maw [email protected] superfriends deck.

Playing this deck can be very techy,

The general plan to pilot this deck is:

  • You want to play mana rocks first,

  • Then a planeswalker or a pillowfort effect,

  • Followed by a wrath and/or an armageddon effect.

  • Ultimate your planeswalker on an empty board,

  • Make your opponents cringe.

The central piece of this deck is Rings of Brighthearth.

Here's the sequence for the combo Basalt Monolith + Rings of Brighthearth

You are in the same position as the beginning of the sequence, except you have one more mana in your mana pool.

Here's the sequence for Sensei's Divining Top and Rings of Brighthearth interaction:

Here's the sequence for the Codex Shredder + Rings of Brighthearth interaction:

  • With the two on the battlefield, use the second tap ability of Codex Shredder, targeting a card in your graveyard, Codex Shredder is in your graveyard (- in pool)

  • Copy the ability with Rings of Brighthearth, targeting your newly scrapped Codex Shredder in your graveyard (- in pool)

  • Let the copy resolves, you get back in your hand your newly scrapped Codex Shredder (- in pool)

  • Let the original ability resolves, you get back in your hand whatever card from your graveyard you've target (- in pool, one more card in hand)

  • Play your newly recovered Codex Shredder (- in pool, one more card in hand)

  • Rinse and repeat

Another favorite plan of this deck is to play Doubling Season then:

Or any of the following planeswalkers to land their Ultimate right off the bat:

Other planeswalkers have less crucial ultimate, but with the two tamiyo emblems and Sorin, Grim Nemesis out, you can do funny shenanigans like infinite power for your tokens, infinite life loss for your opponents, infinite life gain (for yourself), drawing your entire library, emptying the hands of your opponents, etc. by doing what I call the Ascendancy Sequence:

You can do the Ascendancy Sequence with any other planeswalker than Sorin, Lord of Innistrad you just have to change "+1 Sorin, Grim Nemesis" by "-X Sorin, Grim Nemesis targeting the other walker where x is the number of loyalty counter on Sorin, Grim Nemesis"

An example with Kaya, Ghost Assassin:

Any advice is welcome
