Four-Color EDH Concept

Commander / EDH


This is a deck concept for four colors, there are no commander available for this kind of deck yet, so it's not possible to create it yet, but so far this is what I've come up with for it.

This particular deck is all against black, it runs extremely powerful monsters to the point that with multiple out on the field it would be nearly impossible to choose which one to destroy or exile if worse came down to worse.

Some elements is an infinite mana loop with Grand Architect and Pili-Pala. Also used with Memnarch to take control of everything on the battlefield, accept for shrouded and hexproofed stuff. But I can take control of most things that give shrouded or hexproof, and in the case of hexproof, if I take what's giving something hexproof, I can then take the thing itself since it only protects against spells and abilities your opponent controls, which is now the person who originally controlled the hexproofed item.

Both Hexproof and Indestructible with emblems from Elspeth, Knight-Errant and Domri Rade. Other cards that help along this idea are Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Sigarda, Host of Herons, Linvala, Keeper of Silence, and Memnarch used in combinations with Darksteel Forge.

Some extra turns from Lighthouse Chronologist and Medomai the Ageless.

A little bit of board removal from Venser, the Sojourner and All Is Dust.

Also, after a late game changer after placing cards like Omniscience out, and Gilded Lotus , Pili-Pala and Grand Architect for an infinite mana loop without using land, I place down AEther Flash and then cast Realm Razer for a permanent exile of all lands, screwing any opponent over completely.

Also, if I include Melira, Sylvok Outcast in the deck, I can make my creatures almost impossible to remove, first with either Avacyn, Angel of Hope or Elspeth, Knight-Errant's emblem, I make my creatures indestructible, next using Domri Rade's emblem, I make them hexproof, then I also use Sigarda, Host of Herons so they can't be sacrificed, then using Melira, Sylvok Outcast they're immune to -1/-1 counters, so anything infect, or a card like Black Sun's Zenith, now the only thing left is cards like Final Judgement which exile all creatures, or Terminus which gives me the chance to get these creatures back if necessary.

Let me know what you think. +1 if you like it.

Also, I'm trying to create a commander concept for these colors and that compliments this deck, any suggestions on what it's abilities and costs would be would be great, I'm thinking some universal passive effect that helps my creatures or permanents, or some board wiping ability.

My Legal Commander for this deck is Child of Alara, my card I'd like to use and will try to convince my play group to allow me to use is Ink-Treader Nephilim.
