i played a guy at my college who uses a variation of this deck, and trust me, the way he has it set up, there is more than one win condition. He uses cards like Intervention Pact and Pact of Negation along with Hive Mind to make it impossible for anyone but him to win almost 90% of the time

@charr: the whole point of the deck is to come in second. It's a super political masterpiece that keeps the game fun and fair

+1 coz it has a flying purple hippo, nd thats just awesome!

"the whole point of the deck is to come in second. It's a super political masterpiece that keeps the game fun and fair"

That's rather crafty. I like it. I always wondered how to use Phelddagrif, and this is a great idea. +1 for being a good sport too!

You need some stronger win cons such as infinite combos. You have temple bell, throw in some power eldrazi and Mind Over Matter or Enchanted Evening and Aura Thief

@donut62- the whole point of the deck is to come in second. Just keep things even and all.

September 26, 2011 1:01 p.m.

donut62 says... #9

Well my thinking was why come in 2nd when you can take 1st, no one can really do anything until its too late vs pheldagriff, and you have time to set up because your general and its colors arent much of a threat

September 26, 2011 1:13 p.m.

nsecord says... #10

If i wanted to win id play my Mimeoplasm or Thraximundar deck. I find I enjoy the politics of edh just as much as the winning. Felidar Sovereign is on the chopping block as it is

September 26, 2011 4:37 p.m.

I'm showing this to my friend this is an amazing Group Hug deck!! =3

September 28, 2011 1:39 p.m.

metalmagic says... #12

Phelddagrif is a beast. Sorry it's taken me so long to comment, but I'm here! I love these types of decks, as they are very fun in multiplayer. It looks like you have pretty much everything to be a great pal and peacekeeper, but have you considered Trade Secrets ? It might show bias, but someone would love you very much!

September 28, 2011 3:17 p.m.

Forlorn says... #13

first thing that came to mind was Tempting Wurm and for another propaganda like card have you considered Collective Restraint ?

Maybe Edric, Spymaster of Trest ?

Humility ?.. could be very fun/hilarious in this playing environment.

Mindslaver might be fun.. take control of their turn and use it against yourself?

Maybe a Time Reversal ?

Looks like loads fun, good job!1+

September 28, 2011 5:36 p.m.

Forlorn says... #14

sorry, didn't see the Time Reversal in there.

September 28, 2011 5:39 p.m.

I just got into Commander, and this looks like it would make for some fun games! Definitely +1. Also, could you check out my R/U Burning Vengeance deck and tell me what you think?

September 28, 2011 5:40 p.m.

Crippler55 says... #16

I too made a Group Hug deck cause their so much fun to play! I like how your deck has a lot of ways to protect other players creatures and the gain life is always good. My deck runs a bit more removal because not everyone likes it when I give out free stuff, but its not like I don't give them something in return.

Cards that I like to use are: Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer , Noble Benefactor , Soldevi Sentry , Tempting Wurm , Oblation , Pongify , Divine Intervention , Heartbeat of Spring , Hypergenesis , Reverse the Sands , Show and Tell , Helm of Awakening , and Howling Mine /Font of Mythos to name a few.

Oh and Phelddagrif is awesome!!!!!!!!

@ Cripple, some briliant cards there! u guys make me wana make a group hug deck :D wish i had vintage cards

September 29, 2011 1:13 a.m.

nsecord says... #18

@wetapthat: the best part of this is all the cards are super cheap! I already had a Wrath of God and all the planeswalkers and pretty much all the other cards are less than $1

would you mind checking out my deck?

I love it. Honestly I'd play this deck. It's beautiful. Maybe add planeswalker karn though. just because.

September 29, 2011 1:51 p.m.

Jimmeh92 says... #21

Sway of the Stars ? For when things just get too much to deal with xD. It's like having Time Reversal , only even more resetty, if that's a word xD

I love this concept! This kind of deck is definitely something that is more needed in the Commander format. I do think it would be fun to throw Humility in. +1 for aiming for second and being a good sport.

September 30, 2011 6:20 p.m.

Real fun deck, love how magic can be changed not just for competitive but for the overall fun that people can have.

I could use some advice on my deck though deck:within-fire-is-more-fire. Take your time and have fun :D

October 1, 2011 1:30 p.m.

Well, I love the deck, and I see many ways to win easily.The creatures are more then capable of taking the win. And Pheld makes it seem unnoticeable when the enemy takes damage. You can ping him for 4, give him 4 life back, and do that until he loses 20 from Commander.

This is my main standard deck. If you want, take a look at it.

I love this deck, so amazing. +1

Perhaps add Blazing Archon , Arboria , Aurification and/or Windborn Muse if you want even more isolation?

You are very welcome to comment on my deck:garden-of-ghave-looking-for-comments deck or if you want, any other EDH deck that I have :)

I think an Omen Machine could be a lot of fun in this deck. Then again, I do love chaos :P

wetapthat says... #34

What about Dual Nature ?every1 has double creatures :D i played this in a group game was quite funny

October 13, 2011 8:17 a.m.

This deck is HILARIOUS and looks like wicked fun to play. It's really affordable too compared to other EDH decks.

Here's my take on the Kaalia, precon deck. Hope you like it :)

Nice deck! Looks really fun to play especially in a large group. I think Show and Tell would fit nice in here. +1

This deck made me smile :D

Askani28 says... #43

Oooooooh Zedruu the Greathearted is very sad she can't join this Mass Hugging Extravaganza! She would have fit so nicely into this. +1 !!!

(I'm tempted to create a similar deck for normal casual format. I could group hug with plenty of Zedruu and Hippos! Oh and it would also need card:Lich's Mirror just to give it to a dying player with Zedruu's ability loll. Wow my friends would love me even more =)) Loll


Check out my game: QUEST MAGIC: The Mtg RPG!

shoeface33 says... #49

great deck man, love it :) +1

If you wanna spice things up a bit more, maybe try a card:Teferi's Puzzle Box this card is a card:Jace's Archivist effect but happens every turn, so so funny.

Also, Walking Archive just to get people churning through their decks even faster.Played a game where that happened once and it was CRAZY!!!!!

Im tempted to also suggest Terminus instead of either Wrath of God or Day of Judgement?!?!?!! as it removes everything, even indestructible stuff, and people get the chance to play their creatures again. It would put their generals on the bottom too so that may get a bit of hate.... Just an idea :)

(I have no idea why day of judgement has come up so weirdly btw lol)

Can you have a look at my deck? deck:dont-mess-with-a-tariel-edhThank you :)

so much fun !

January 26, 2013 8:47 p.m.

pretty awesome! ive been wanting to make Zedruu for forever and there are some great cards in here.

any reasoning for not using Howling Mine?

April 20, 2013 8:47 p.m.

oh and +1 ! haha

PooPlayer says... #53

love this deck! it's exactly what i've been looking for, i don't have an EDH deck and i'm not that into it beyond casual games so i want something fun to play that does silly things and not expensive to put together. nailed it here, +1 from me and i'm building it for sure!

Two things i'll add to mine though - Island Sanctuary - Mystic Decree trololol

August 12, 2013 8:24 p.m.

mntrooper says... #54

Some silliness could be had with Ice Cave , as well as Curse of the Swine , Or perhaps a Meekstone to keep those big mean creatures at bay. And dang it is hard to find cards that would go in here that other people haven't already suggested.

November 20, 2013 3:12 a.m.

Atsuma says... #55

it is more aggressive than i think this deck plans on being, but Bant Charm is honestly one of the greatest cards you can run for those colors. Cyclonic Rift or Evacuation could work as a great board clear that makes people less sad about losing stuff, and have interesting mechanics with enter play effects. Spike Weaver is pretty much fog on a stick, and can be incredibly easy to add +1/+1 sometimes, or even convince someone at the table to give it counters to keep the fogs going. Seedborn Muse is another card that could keep the love coming. Oblation is a great spot removal card that fits in line with this deck. Mikokoro, Center of the Sea , Howling Mine . and Otherworld Atlas could have some more interesting temple bell effects. Magus of the Vineyard and Rites of Flourishing could be some interesting group ramp options.

Definitely an interesting deck the i will probably borrow from when i throw together a pheldaggriff deck one day. if you can give Ramp, Reuse, Wreck a look over that would be really cool.

+1 for sure because looks like loads of fun and budget!

Mnemonic Nexus ?? +1 for this deck all day erry day!

My current EDH decks:
War (4 Horsemen EDH)
Pestilence (4 Horsemen EDH)
Death (4 Horsemen EDH)
Famine (4 Horsemen EDH)

And soon, some form of Group Hug like this. Thanks, mate!

October 21, 2014 10:05 a.m.

I love this deck! I think you might like my deck, Zedruu the Goatfarted (Chaos). It puts together group hug and chaos into a whirlpool of pain! No win cons, either, so that's fun. Used to run Transcendence, but, well, look at the deck and try to figure out why I pulled it.
