My first EDH! Glissa!

Commander / EDH



This is my first ever EDH deck...all comments and suggestions are SUPER appreciated. I am missing much of the lands and utility cards that most EDH's run...mostly because I don't know of them. If you have any cards that would improve this deck, especially lands, please offer me a trade for them if I've got something you wanna get your hands on... I'd really appreciate it. Thanks! Is infect. =D

This looks to be pretty solid However I would suggest 16 each of your baisic lands and then fill the rest with your non baisic and fetch lands the more even the better and should help with consistency and you shouls also look at replacing the cards with more than two of the same mana symbols ex (GGG) unless you can add some mana accel to help with that issue

i would suggest adding a Mindslaver if you can get one, as using that with Glissa, the Traitor is a nasty combo that is hard to break out of if your opponent's creatures don't have first strike and power than 2.

Killroy, I have got a bit of mana accel, roughly 10 cards, iirc, and in the little testing I've done, multiple color mana hasn't been a problem. Perhaps that's because I'm already using so many basic land, but I'm only using 3 of each color triple mana. If it gets to be a notable problem, I'll look into it.

And Blackaddicus, that's a great suggestion, I will try to find one and find room for it!

I don't know how you feel about infinite mana combos but I'm fond of all the below. I'm not saying you should do this but if I were to build this deck I would likely do something to this effect. That way if the general is hated upon to much, you have a backup plan. Admittedly these additions would take a large chunk out of the deck.

Phyrexian Altar / Skirge Familiar , Spawning Pit , Parallel Lives . This gives you infinite creatures and mana if you can draw infinite cards. But I forgot the card that is letting you draw all those cards didn't I? Fecundity . And with those infinite cards you could then have infinite creatures. Zombie Infestation . And what to do with all these creatures being made? Well you could Carrion Feeder , Rite of Consumption . Have the feeder eat the zombie horde. But you may run out of cards, Elixir of Immortality to shuffle back in all the cards your discarding. How about just removing your opponents entire library? Bitter Ordeal . If all this sounds fun then you could add in Nether Traitor and a token generator, Gutter Grime . Another couple things you can do with all these creatures dying and mana is Blood Artist / Falkenrath Noble , Exsanguinate

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Hex Parasite would allow you to have undying creatures that are truly undying or the Unhallowed and Woodfall Primus . And the best part about most of these ideas is with the exception of the Primus they are all affordable and won't break your bank.

Wow that was alot for what I had intended to just be something real quick. Anyway +1, check out my myriad of EDH decks...some finished, some not, some a mess, at least one genius.

Glissa can be very dangerous with a Viridian Longbow , Kusari-Gama and other similar cards in hand

find a few sac outlets for artifacts.

Necrogen Spellbomb , Horizon Spellbomb and Nihil Spellbomb can be very useful. card:Executioner's Capsule can retrieve itself.

Meekstone can stall those big commanders

just a few ideas

Thanks a ton for all the comments and suggestions!

One thing of note, that Kusari-Gama doesn't work as awesome as you thought..I saw it a while back and thought the same thing, but the equipment does the damage, not the critter, so no infect....

Are there any cards that do that, but have the creature do the damage? So much infect, everywhere!

I knew. But it still counts as removal if it gets creatures into the grave and the damage is equal to the creatures power so you'd still be picking off quite a few creatures against weenies. Plus the pump ability is ther to make sure that your opponents have incentive to block... you could be really risky with it and have Worldslayer instead. it would provoke opponents to block you and fuel glissa's ability time and time again. The drawback isnt so problematic seeing as the commander is cheap and naturally does that artifact recursion thing.
