Maybeboard


Description

So, I recently acquired Eureka, and what a lovely card it is. I wanted to build an EDH deck around it, with the idea being that I stack my hand with fatties, then Eureka to out board advantage my opponents. However, I also didn't want it to be the only win-condition, so I included some other "cheats" like Show and Tell, with a heavy focus on dumping into the graveyard and bringing the fatties back with things like reanimate, Liliana, Death's Majesty, and Ever After, etc.

Updates

Added Liliana of the Veil as a cheap discard outlet.

Added Liliana, Death's Majesty as both a discard outlet and her #2 skill.

Added Worldspine Wurm - because big and legal?

"Added Liliana of the Veil as a cheap discard outlet."

This bit made me laugh. I know what you meant, but still..."cheap"

That aside, I really like the deck - do you have much of a problem with Damia eating removal? It seems you are fairly low on counterspells and protection, which I'd expect your opponents to take full advantage of...

Eureka is a sexy card, I like the deck. What do you do if someone stops the euerka before you can dump your hand?

This deck is super fun! I'm not very good at building EDH decks, but when I was playtesting yours, I noticed the bounce land(s) in there were just super slow. Since you have really good lands in here like Underground Sea, those fetch lands, maybe some duals instead of them, or perhaps Ancient Tomb? Other than that, really fun deck! Keep up the brewing.

@MrTom, hah, I see that now. Yeah, cheap/not cheap. Damia, has been occasionally taking some removal, but it hasn't been terrible in my play group so far. I probably could do with a few more "blocks" in there.

@Swamy, If that happens, or if I can't seem to stack my hand well enough, then I try to fall back on dumping the creatures in the graveyard and reviving them from there with things like Shallow Grave, Animate Dead, Ever After, etc.

@Spooky, I agree, the mana base can certainly be improved. I don't have a Tropical Island at the moment to complete the dual cycle, but I agree I should really take out the slow-lands and replace with non-tap stuff like Ancient Tomb or more fetches. Thanks for the tips.

If you're looking to make it more competitive, I would think about adding a combo or two. The easiest one that comes to mind is probably Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Triskelion. Then you could Eureka them into play or use something like Victimize after you throw them in the graveyard. You just need a sac outlet.

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed is super strong with any sac outlet, allowing you to get multiple triggers off of stuff like Rune-Scarred Demon and Terastodon.

For sac outlets I would recommend adding Greater Good and possibly Ashnod's Altar. You can also Eureka both of those into play.

Survival of the Fittest and/or Fauna Shaman also seem like they would be strong in your deck.
