CHALLENGE EDH - Voltron Knight of Black

Commander / EDH Aggro Casual Mono-Black Theme/Gimmick Voltron



You want to take your deck-building skills to the max? You want to play a deck where if you win with it, you basically are god to your play group?

This is a pure CHALLENGE build. The following requirements are:

  1. Get the Haakon, Stromgald Scourge out of the command zone with Command Beacon

  2. Once Haakon, Stromgald Scourge is in your hand, get him into the yard, with some form of discard

  3. Play Haakon, Stromgald Scourge from the yard and proceed to voltron him with equipment.

Win-Con: You have to win with Commander DmG, NOT INFECT or Massive Lifedrain to the table.

To be honest, if this ever wins a game, I'd be really surprised. Regardless, this is for purely fun purposes.

This build is free for all kinds of feedback, but still needs to stick with the core of the gimmick. Do tell in the comments below if you ever have been able to win with this kind of deck.


As it stands, out of the ten games I've played with this deck so far, I have yet to win any in any FFA EDH matches online.

But when I do que in with it, anyone I've fought has been very amused by the concept and does cause for fun games at the very least.

Isn't Necropotence extremely bad here? You get Haakon to hand, discard him, he's exiled, he end.

You are right, in most cases Necropotence is pure value xD I didn't take that into account, thank you for catching that.

The only argument is once he hits the field, you can proceed to abuse the enchantment, but before that it's a dead card. Well the deck needs draw, what would you suggest to replace Necropotence with?

Phyrexian Arena, Scroll Rack, Smuggler's Copter, Necrologia are better than Necropotence here

Why not Raven's Crime Targeting yourself to discard the commander?

Added Raven's Crime & Phyrexian Arena as two good additions to the deck.

@trixster87 I love the idea with the Chaos deck. I'm pretty sure this provides much fun within any FFA it's put into.
