I did a few updates to the deck in removing Inundate, Lightning Greaves (the shroud ability just doesn't go too well with all the pump lands I have in the deck) and Sakashima's Student and I put in Unstable Obelisk (I love this new artifact and it combos nicely with Academy Ruins), Fireshrieker and Clever Impersonator.
The deck is actually still doing pretty well in my meta taking into account that mono-U aggro is an archetype that doesn't get very much love from WOTC. ;D
I had a very fun game in a pod of 3 players last night where I was up against a Geth, Lord of the Vault mono-B and lots of artifacts deck and a classic Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind-draw lots of cards and finish by comboing out deck. Here's how the game went:
Geth, Lord of the Vault got away with a quick start, lots of mana rocks into big creatures and some removal. Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind tried to keep Geth, Lord of the Vault in check by destroying some of his artifacts with cards like Pillage, Shattering Spree or Shattering Pulse. All the while I tried to build up a boardstate with one or two lords and some pump lands.
Somewhere around turn 10-12 Geth, Lord of the Vault used his ability to steal a Consecrated Sphinx out of my graveyard. As Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind had played a Teferi's Puzzle Box a few turns earlier that would have given too much card advantage to Geth, Lord of the Vault, so I decided to play my Reweave on the Sphinx immediately. The spell resolved and Geth, Lord of the Vault started revealing cards from the top of his library. The third or fourth card was his first creature - Phage the Untouchable!!! Instant loss for Geth, Lord of the Vault 8D.
I then went on to play a Body Double on my Sphinx and win the game shortly after because of the huge card advantage I got from + .
I really recommend this deck to everyone who wants to surpise his fellow mtg-players with something different. So far every single time I've pulled out the deck it was a blast to play and people had to read the cards from a lot of spells in the deck (like Reweave, Soldevi Excavations or Notorious Throng), because they didn't know them.

Thanks for your comment Linkboy, but I don't think Xenograft would work that well in this deck because I am working with a a lot of different creature types like Merfolk (various lords), Elephant (Elephant Graveyard), Illusion (Lord of the Unreal), Griffin (Griffin Canyon), Sliver (Shifting Sliver and Galerider Sliver, and so on. So I don't think it would help that much if I gave all my creatures just one more creature type. I'd need something to make all my creatures all types, but alas, such a card doesn't exist in MtG as far as I know. :-)
November 18, 2014 5:58 a.m.
Pretty sure there's a combo for untapping that sucker repeatedly, just saying.
November 19, 2014 5:45 a.m.
Thanks dagan94, but Amoeboid Changeling is already in the deck. I know that there are some blue enchantments that enable me to untap the enchanted creature for or , don't remember their names now though.

Thanks for pointing it out, I din't think of this possibility. But I think a 4 card combo would be too much of a hassle, so I guess I have to wait until wizards print a new card that does something like ": All creatures you control become every creature type until end of turn."
November 19, 2014 4:44 p.m.
Especially with so little tutors in your colors, which brings up that Planar Portal may be a good addition.
November 19, 2014 5:28 p.m.
I'll put that into the Maybeboard for now, because I feel that it might be a tad too expensive. It costs 6 mana to cast AND 6 mana to activate to get one single card out of your library and I guess that more often than not it comes with a huge target attached to itself. My deck usually wants to get Mr. Ultimus out and beat face with him fast and furious, so Planar Portal could be too slow for it. In my previous games with the deck I've had so much raw card draw that I never felt the need for a lot of tutors, that's why I am also not running stuff like Merchant Scroll or Mystical Tutor. Thanks for suggesting the card!

If you want to test if your deck is pretty competitively viable you can check out some of Kozelek 's decks as well as my deck Clash of Wills; Braids, Conjurer Adept. Warning about Braids, she's aggro blue and is beyond evil.
November 21, 2014 12:28 p.m.
I'll try my deck against your Braids deck or one from Kozelek sometime soon. If your decks are made for 1vs1 games, I doubt that my decks will stand a good chance though. I usually build my decks for multiplayer purposes (pods of 4 or more people) and thus they usually are not good enough for competitive 1vs1. The only deck I have built more or less for a 1vs1 cutthroat environment only is a Sigarda, Host of Herons enchantress deck, which I still have to upload to tappedout.net. I had a look at your Clash of Wills; Braids, Conjurer Adept and can see that it is a well thought out and well oiled machine, nicely done!

Great deck idea with an awesome commander, I say Mistform Warchief for flavour and speed! :)
November 26, 2014 11:03 p.m.
I'll keep an eye on Mistform Warchief and put into the maybeboard for now, but it will surely be one of the first cards I try out when I have the chance to get my hands on a copy of this card. Thanks for the suggestion!
I am not so sure that Telepathy has a place in this deck, though. When someone plays this card against me I find it annyoing, but not threatening. I usually do not waste my resources to get it off the table. I feel that I can use the slot better than to play a card that will only show me my opponent's next draw. But thanks for suggesting it, Vexaethis.

Coat of Arms will make you bigger for every other creature on the field. On the one hand it makes them all +1/+1 as well, but your commander will be bigger.

Whelming Wave is pretty funny. It'll hit most everything but your general.
April 15, 2015 2:59 a.m.
@wisegreenbean: I've got Whelming Wave in my maybeboard for now because I just don't know what I might cut for it.
April 15, 2015 5:31 a.m.
deck update june 23rd, 2015:
Because of the rules change that commanders now cannot be tucked anymore I removed the tuck counterspells Spell Crumple and Hinder and added Muddle the Mixture and Dissolve instead.
Muddle the Mixture costs one mana less to play than any of the two spells I cut and it also lets me tutor for a lot of important cards in my deck like Cyclonic Rift, Snapcaster Mage or some of my lord creatures like Lord of Atlantis, Coralhelm Commander, Lord of the Unreal, Master of the Pearl Trident. The restriction that it can only counter instant or sorcery spells won't be too much of a drawback I hope.
June 23, 2015 3:52 a.m.
Shadow Sliver to give it shadow, maybe Diffusion Sliver if targeted removal is a thing.
Also check out prowl spells:
Knowledge Exploitation- prowl cost is cheap
Notorious Throng- extra turn could be game over
Thieves' Fortune- this kind of cantrip is good in any deck for
October 21, 2015 3:38 a.m.
Thanks for your comment electromancer.
Shadow Sliver is an interesting suggestion. I am going to test it instead of Shifting Sliver.
I will keep an eye on Thieves' Fortune and put this card into the maybeboard for now as I don't know at the moment what I should cut for it.
Knowledge Exploitation and Notorious Throng are already in the deck.
Diffusion Sliver feels not good enough for me as my opponents should usually be able to pay for the extra mana easily in a mana-heavy format that is EDH
October 22, 2015 3:48 a.m.
Nice deck, I'm trying to make one Mistform Ultimus myself. I just want to suggest Whelming Wave, because it is return most/all other creatures, except Mistform himself
March 21, 2017 12:51 a.m.
Thank you for the suggestion EDHTest. Whelming Wave is already in my maybeboard for this deck. It sure has some synergy with my Commander and I'd like to try it out someday, but I couldn't decide yet what I'd cut for it.
March 21, 2017 4:31 a.m.
Been looking for a deck with Mistform at the Helm for a while, and Im gonna try your build here ;D
has there been any updates latley? :D
May 26, 2017 7:41 p.m.
@psykopatmullvad: Thanks for the upvote! The deck's list here on tappedout is exactly the list as I play it at the moment. The last updates I did were to cut Arcanis the Omnipotent and Back from the Brink and add Thieves' Fortune and Submerge to the list instead. I am thinking about adding Treasure Cruise to the deck as well, but didn't decide on what to cut for it yet.
May 27, 2017 2:51 p.m.
Thanks for the reply! If i remember ill post how the deck fares in the future. Gonna take a while to grab all the cards and build it :D
May 28, 2017 3:45 a.m.
@psykopatmullvad: I'm looking forward to your feedback. If you want to save a few bucks when acquiring the cars then cut Mana Drain and Mutavault, those are nice to have but not absolutely necessary for the deck to work. Just play something like Dispel and another Island instead.
May 28, 2017 12:09 p.m.
@Tomahawk-Bang Ill cut the drain yea, but i own a Mutavault so that goes in there :D
