Enchantment (2)

Sorcery (1)


my version of a Captain Sisay toolbox type deck. Because he can tutor for legendary creatures, my whole deck is a toolbox full of nifty combos and control/beat down.

Lets see if I can go through and list each card and what it is used for...

Academy Rector Good for getting out all of the mana doubles I run, also i can go fetch an O-ring or an Aura Shards for stuff against zur or artifact hate.

Acidic Slime JESUS PEOPLE, this card needs to be in every fucking green deck, dont question why, just take it up your ass and leave it!

Ancient Tomb general ramp, nobody cares about 2 life in EDH


Avacyn, Angel of Hope I usually aim to get this out every game.

Beast Within GREEN REMOVAL REPRESENT, GREEN REMOVAL IN DA HOUSE!!! (3/3 token is nothing)

Birds of Paradise Mana accel, cast sisay turn 3...

Brushland Because every duel colored land is wanted...

Chrome Mox Great accel, good card.

Command Tower Only one of the most played lands in EDH

Condemn 7 year old kid: (hehe, he said condom... hehe).. no but seriously, this card is AMAZING against generals.

Cultivate More ramp..

Defense of the Heart Ok, you have 3 creatures out? I put ulamog and kozilek into play... good game :)

Deserted Temple Fun with Gaea's Cradle

Dosan the Falling Leaf Control's worst nightmare...

Eiganjo Castle My creatures arent, well, mostly... LEGENDARY... duh, good card!

Eladamri's Call More tutor, usually for tech creatures

Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite (I have Kamahl, Fist of Krosa out), "Ok, I play Elesh Norn, tap Gaea's Cradle... destroy all of your lands, you are fucked, good game, bye bye, asta la vista, arigato, get lost..." you get the picture

Enlightened Tutor A nice EOT tutor, getting like Sol Ring if its in my opening hand, Rings of Brighthearth, Thousand-Year Elixir, just solid tutor, played in most EDH decks using white

Eternal Witness Only one of the most played green cards in EDH... AMAZING recursion.!

Explosive Vegetation Ramp...

Flagstones of Trokair A land I can tutor for with sisay, replaces itself... better then just a Plains

Forest YEA YEA, BASIC LANDS MOTHA FUCKA!!! I don't care what anyone says, basic lands are ESSENTIAL to any EDH deck (unless your running Hermit Druid, and in that case, you are a faggot and I would leave the table)

Gaddock Teeg Ohh, a combo players worst nightmare... shuts down most decks!

Gaea's Cradle Only the best land to ever be printed for sisay... it gets big fast and enables me to ramp out shit, LOTS OF shit, FAST

Genesis Wave Kinda a alt wincon, cast for 11 and watch their eyes open and shit dribble out of their scared assholes as iona, eldrazi, mana doubler and much others drop into play.

Green Sun's Zenith Go fetch Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger or other assorted green creature. Great card, must be played!

Hall of the Bandit Lord HASTE, HASTE, HASTE... I can't stress enough how awesome this card is... USE IT

Harmonize Card advantage, a must if I want to be competitive... I often play out my hand by turn 5-6 so its always good to replenish

Harrow Sac a land, get two... great card. Ya know, its like, sac the first baby that is fucking annoying and doesnt like you, get two more that are "daddies kids"... works the same way.... i... think?

Hokori, Dust Drinker Soft lock with Gaea's Cradle

Homeward Path FUCK Bribery... "Ok, so you want to get ulamog and put it into play?" "I cast homeword path..."

Horizon Canopy Duel lands of any type are always better then a basic!

Iona, Shield of Emeria (I cast Iona against mono color), "I tap 9 mana, I win the game..."

Kamahl, Fist of Krosa For assholes or zur, azami, and the like, or for people who are jerks. "I use his first ability with elesh norn on the battlefield, all your lands die... dodges flying chairs and books

Karmic Guide Ok, you want to kill Kozilek, Butcher of Truth? I play him again...

Kodama's Reach More ramp

Kor Haven Good against Rafiq of the Many decks... or just keeping beaters out of the way

Kozilek, Butcher of Truth Win condition. Thats all.

Lightning Greaves sisay searchs turn 2-4... cant target shit, gives stuff haste... one of the best artifacts in EDH

Linvala, Keeper of Silence Shits on dragons and other things... iona's little sister

Mana Crypt mana ramp, enables a turn 1 sisay play (this with Chrome Mox and land)

Mana Reflection mana doubler... good card, when this sticks, I win!

Mangara of Corondor Nice removal... of ANYTHING

Maze of Ith ok, you attack with infinite/infinite creature? I remove it from combat... you attack with Rafiq of the Many? I remove it from combat... dodges more chairs and books

Mindslaver You have Sorin Markov and a Sorin's Vengeance?? I play Mindslaver... good game:)

Mirari's Wake Mana doubler, +1/+1, whats not to like!

Mirror Gallery Enables Tolsimir Wolfblood and Helm/Shield/Sword to tap 1 and put a 4/4 out, to instantly become AMAZING... stops clone effects

Mistveil Plains graveyard recursion... so i can re-tutor with sisay!

Oblation Again, great for dealing with generals!!!

Oblivion Ring Well, only the most played white card of all time... ITS O-RING PEOPLE!!! DUH

Path to Exile Creature removal at instant speed... for W, pretty good IMO

Pattern of Rebirth (Playing control deck), "you want to remove

Dosan of the Falling Leaf??? Ok, I search my library and put insert large, broken creature here into play... effectivly works as a shroud/horsemanship type effect.

Petrified Field For getting back Gaea's Cradle from a Strip Mine/armaggedon type effect

Plains meh, not really my favorite... kinda useful... i have to include it because im playing white... (Hint Hint, THIS IS A RACIST COMMENT)

Primal Command very useful card. I love cards with two different effects. Usually tutor for something and bounce a creature

Reflecting Pool Mana...

Reya Dawnbringer Last resort usually. Or after a Wrath of Godlike effect

Rings of Brighthearth This card combos with no less then 23 cards in this deck... i can say it is needed

Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant Good against aggro...

Saffi Eriksdotter Keeps shit alive...

Sakura-Tribe Elder Ramp

Savannah duel land (yes, i have lots of cash on hand...)

Selesnya Signet Ramp

Sensei's Divining Top Prolly the most played card in EDH... ITS JUST THAT FUCKING GOOD

Serra Ascendant Loltz... I guess I start at over 30 life... gain 6 a turn? YES PLEASE!

Skyshroud Claim Possibly the best ramp in EDH

Sol Ring Again, clashes with Top for the most played card in EDH

Strip Mine Almost every deck plays this as well...

Sun Titan Good recursion of my tech creatures, or any legends...

Sunpetal Grove Duels are always better then basics

Survival of the Fittest If you play green, you play Survival of the Fittest... maybe one of the most broken cards ever. Especially with sisay!

Swords to Plowshares If you play white, you play this card. END OF FUCKING STORY

Sylvan Library Top on a stick... great card! Allows to draw 3 cards a turn if you feel like it, and is great in EDH (40 life bitches)

Temple Garden Rav pain lands, they are good.

Thousand-Year Elixir Great card, combos with a lot of stuff in my deck, multiple searches with sisay... lots of fun stuff with this card. Plus it gives activated abilities haste! YAY

Tolsimir Wolfblood Goes crazy with Mirror Gallery... pops out blockers against aggro... decent card.

Tooth and Nail Possibly one of the most broken cards ever played. It should really read, Pay 9, win the game...

Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre Great beater... once this hits, A LOT of people concede... works as target removal as well...

Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger This is a political card if anything. "I will not play Vorinclex if you do not hurt me..." is a common line in my play group!


Windswept Heath Gets Savannah... good fetch card.

Wooded Bastion Color fixer, what could be better?

Worldly Tutor Tutors for creatures. This card is good. Use it.

Yavimaya Hollow Completely broken with Sisay... I always tutor for it!

Hope this helped you understand what cards are in there for what...

I also need to take out a card, any suggestions?

Help or a +1 would be much appreciated.If not, leave a comment about what you dont like!

Far Wanderings is a nice card i discovered today. you might enjoy it.

September 3, 2012 4:28 a.m.

sweet... thanks man. any other cards you could think of?

September 3, 2012 4 p.m.

Epochalyptik says... #3

Skyshroud Claim finds both of your dual lands.

Thran Dynamo and Gilded Lotus are good mana rocks. I would drop the signet for one of them.

Vedalken Orrery .

September 5, 2012 12:38 a.m.

ok, mostly, im looking to ramp out sisay as fast as possible... thats why the signet is there. but for later game, i see what your saying. as for Vedalken Orrery , why?

September 5, 2012 12:56 a.m.

Epochalyptik says... #5

Because flashcasting is absurdly good in EDH.

Think about it. In response to something your opponent does, tutor a legend with Sisay and play it. Flash in something to block with. EOT your best creatures so your opponent can't wipe them before you attack. Always have mana open.

September 5, 2012 12:59 a.m.

ok, good idea... Skyshroud Claim goes in for Primal Surge ... any other cards i need to take out/add in... the Vedalken Orrery is going in... (and yes, i know theirs duplicates)

September 5, 2012 1:03 a.m.

ravengamer93 says... #7

Found another good one. Aluren since it appears you have quite a few 3 or less :)

Also I believe I finally perfected my EDH Saffi deck. can you Critique mine.

Saffi Sovereign EDH

ty and nice deck.

September 5, 2012 1:09 a.m.

yes, i will get to that tomorrow

September 5, 2012 1:13 a.m.

You know emerkrul is banned in EDH right?

September 11, 2012 12:27 a.m.

gheridarigaaz says... #10

I've found Untaidake, the Cloud Keeper to be incredibly useful. Maybe use the shrines from kamigawa, card:Honden of Life's Web and Honden of Cleansing Fire , for some incremental gain, Tolsimir Wolfblood for support, Isamaru, Hound of Konda for an early legend, Sigarda, Host of Herons to protect you from eldrazi, Time of Need as an extra tutor and to top it off you could use your legends as a mana source with Honor-Worn Shaku which would be devastating in conjunction with Vedalken Orrery and someting that granted vigilance like Concerted Effort ... or you could just abuse the hell outta cards like Quest for Renewal

September 11, 2012 5:46 a.m.

gheridarigaaz says... #11

Oh... and Mirror Gallery to protect your creatures from clone effects

September 11, 2012 5:54 a.m.

thx for the comments guys

@karden09, i had forgotten about emrakul being banned... ill either put in kozelek or ulamog... which one do you think?

@gheridarigaaz, no on the shrines, i dont need life gain what those spots can be served as either ramp or a wincon. Tolsimir Wolfblood came out because i found myself tutoring for other things besides it, but i might have to put it back in, we shall see. Isamaru, Hound of Konda has no place here, Sigarda, Host of Herons wasnt good enough to justify putting her in, although i will consider it again. maybe Time of Need , although i dont really need another tutor, that spot can be either ramp or utility... Honor-Worn Shaku is certainly an idea. and i think i will put in Mirror Gallery but what to take out??? that is the question... what to take out?

September 11, 2012 1:09 p.m.

karden09 says... #13

I always say Kozilek cause hes a draw engine, lower cost and better stats, but my friend is a fan of Ulamog cause with of the destroy perminet, indestructable, and without trample 2 extra power isnt gonna change much. my choice would be Kozilek, but its up to you.

September 11, 2012 2:21 p.m.

alright... ill do some asking around... thanks for the help!

September 11, 2012 2:48 p.m.

Not sure how you don't have Windswept Heath in here. You also only have 8 Forest s in the whole deck, so you might consider cutting Rofellos. Dosan the Falling Leaf doesn't really combo with Vedalken Orrery very well, I'd consider taking out one or the other. I would say the Myojins (Cleansing Fire and Life's Web) both have a lot of utility in being bale to search for a boardwipe (albeit a spendy one) and I love being able to just stock my hand with cool creatures and then just dump them on the board.

September 11, 2012 4:56 p.m.

gheridarigaaz says... #16

Karakas ...

September 11, 2012 7 p.m.

Karakas is banned...

lol, i forgot about Windswept Heath . Rofellos is in there for synergy with card:Gaea's Cradle but thats not a bad idea. Dosan the Falling Leaf goes out against control and i fetch him often. I had cut the myojins previously because of the cost when i can just get kozelek or ulamog (which one is better?)... but maybe ill put them in.

im also considering adding Mirror Gallery and Tolsimir Wolfblood and Honor-Worn Shaku in but dont know what to take out... any suggestions?

September 11, 2012 8:09 p.m.

I pretty much always find myself searching for Kozilek over Ulamog, mostly because the card advantage is always so dominant, but I run all four. The way I view it, a) EDH is a long game, so I don't ever really get tripped up by the mana cost, but b) you're also running a ton of ramp, and therefore it becomes much more feasible to play more heavily costed spells.

I would do away with things like Farseek and Sylvan Scrying for more solid ramp spells like Mana Reflection and Explosive Vegetation , being that Farseek is just a limiting Rampant Growth and Sylvan Scrying puts a single land in hand. Basically I advise on more impactful spells.

I run Tolsimir Wolfblood but have felt a few times that I should take him out simply because he's, again, not incredibly impactful, but he's such a sweet card that he usually stays. Mirror Gallery isn't in yet but I'm looking for a place for it. Have had really bad experiences with opponents running clone-control and also just clone abilities, and it would make Tolsimir Wolfblood a ton better.

Here's my list, deck:sisay-aint-scared, I would love to conitnue this debate though.

September 11, 2012 8:59 p.m.

well well well, kozilek is going in... the reason i had my early ramp is to get sisay out turn 3 so i can search turn 4... but i will consider adding Mana Reflection ... maybe take out both of the early ramp spells for Mana Reflection and Mirror Gallery ... what do you think?

September 11, 2012 11:27 p.m.

AslanCross says... #20

I once fought a Sisay at a tournament that ran Loyal Retainers to combo with Survival of the Fittest . That was a frightening deck.

September 14, 2012 8 p.m.

what does that combo do?

September 15, 2012 12:11 a.m.


September 15, 2012 9:40 p.m.

Ohthenoises says... #23

By the looks of it they would pitch a legend to hunt for something with Survival of the Fittest then swap that creature with Loyal Retainers .

September 21, 2012 7:43 a.m.

Ohthenoises says... #24

As far as the deck goes. Sword of Kaldra , Helm of Kaldra , and Shield of Kaldra are all common and IMO need to go on your acquire list.

Not sure if you are going for "combo" but there is a mini combo with Rings of Brighthearth and Basalt Monolith that gives you infinite colorless mana.

I would consider Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre to go with Kozilek, Butcher of Truth .

Terminus may be better that Condemn in some situations.

September 21, 2012 7:53 a.m.

Condemn is used to get rid of generals...

not going to use the infinite colorless combo, I hardly get the two cards out anyways.

Convince me on the legendary artifacts... maybe 1 goes in but 3??? Thats hard to justify. And if they did, what would come out???

Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre has been added...

September 23, 2012 11:22 p.m.

Ohthenoises says... #26

Shield of Kaldra is a tutorable Darksteel Plate . (Duh it's good.) Sword of Kaldra is just amazing in every way especially attached to a beater like Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre . (make people think twice about blocking.) Helm of Kaldra gives first strike trample AND haste. If the helm and the sword are on the creature you assign lethal damage during first strike phase then you trample over the rest. Creature gets exiled before it can hit back.

Best part is, if someone wipes the board. (Which they will.) the artifacts will survive cause they are ALL indestructible then you can just make the avatar token and lol as you now are the only one with a creature and it's a 9/9 first strike trample haste exile-on-hit creature for 1 mana after avboardwipe.

Oh did I mention that this is 100% tutorable? and with Mirror Gallery it's "pay 1 put a 4/4 creature out.

Birthing Pod seems lackluster here.

September 24, 2012 7:49 a.m.

yes, Birthing Pod i think is coming out!

as for those three artifacts, I do need more aggro and a way to finish off the game so I will test these!!!

Thx for the help man!!! I really appreciate it!

September 24, 2012 10:52 p.m.

Ohthenoises says... #29

Glad I could convince you. Really the only reason you would want Birthing Pod is for someone tucks your general. Not all that common. Plus you have Survival of the Fittest for that.

September 24, 2012 11:24 p.m.

zandl says... #30

-1 Forest , +1 Okina, Temple to the Grandfathers .

There's literally no reason to not.

And if your Commander's out and you need more Green, boom.

September 25, 2012 8:17 p.m.

yes yes yes zandl, you are so correct!


September 25, 2012 8:18 p.m.

zandl says... #32

Regarding Birthing Pod - Never underestimate the power of tutoring for and then putting a creature into play from your library.

September 25, 2012 8:22 p.m.

its taken out in place of the kaldera shit

September 25, 2012 10:28 p.m.

Long_Con says... #34

The Kaldra artifacts are awesome, did you end up acquiring them? I've had major fun with them. Eight-and-a-Half-Tails is pretty cool, he can take care of threats that little else can, if you have a few mana to spare. I would replace Mangara of Corondor with him. She's awesome as a Commander, but otherwise, she's an Oblivion Ring that can't be destroyed... sort of underwhelming.

October 26, 2012 8:12 a.m.

Cravv says... #35

This deck need alot more +1's. Few suggestions: Illusionist's Bracers, Grimoire of the Dead(works with reya), Fauna Shaman and Patron of the Orochi. i combo all those cards with elvish piper and search 2 creatures from deck to board every turn.. Maybe more if orochimaru is on board..

April 17, 2015 8:41 a.m.

Cravv says... #36

allso i have finished meny games with Dragon Throne of Tarkir. Give it to Avacyn, Angel of Hope and all your creatures gets +8/+8...

markbeloit says... #41

Would recommend Mother of Runes over Serra Ascendant. Both are creatures. Ascendant is great to get out turn 1, but feels like a dead draw for you later in the game. Mother, on the other hand, can be used throughout the game to protect your assets.

Also I would run Krosan Grip over Condemn, but that's a very meta dependent call. Where I play, lots of people play good artifacts/enchantments that need to die and few people play voltron. You do what's right for you.

July 9, 2016 2:08 p.m.

robertmweaver says... #42

Reki, the History of Kamigawa seems like a missing element with Sisay.

August 27, 2016 3:12 a.m.

Herrosix says... #43

"Karmic Guide Ok, you want to kill Kozilek, Butcher of Truth? I play him again..." Kozilek doesnt stay in grave. Canopy Vista, Reki, the History of Kamigawa, Surrak, the Hunt Caller since haste is hard to find in green.

Dragonlord Dromoka lets control and destruction players battle it out when its not your turn but stops your stuff from being effected, works great as replacement for dosan after it dies.

December 30, 2016 2:19 a.m.

jaiaisaiah says... #44

Why no Serra's Sanctum? True, it's not nearly as good as Gaea's Cradle, but you are running 8 enchantments and it is a land that can be fetched with Captain Sisay. Another example of a land like this (Even though, I know, it isn't as good as Serra's Sanctum or Gaea's Cradle) is Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. It may not look great, but trust me, it certainly is. you get lots of devotion from things like Eternal Witness, Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Acidic Slime, Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite, and Dosan the Falling Leaf, among other things. In fact (Even though it does cost 2 mana to activate) it might even be better than Serra's Sanctum in your deck, as you're only running 8 enchantments. Plus, both of these lands are legendary and can be fetched by Captain Sisay. That is really icing on the cake. One other legendary land you could consider (just for mana fixing, don't expect to use its second ability that much if at all) is Pendelhaven. Not nearly as good as any of the aforementioned lands, but hey! mana is mana.

Here's a good Sisay deck you can get some ideas from about how to make your deck better:Welcome to Paradise... oops I mean Paradox

April 29, 2017 6:19 p.m.

Kain078 says... #46

This Sisay deck doesn't live up to the full potential that it is able to. Sisay is a broken commander and if you know how to use her then she will scare everyone. I get hated at the table, but still win! I'm able to play my entire deck which is the deck mentioned in above comment on 2 - 3 for the win. Ive been able to on turn 1 before before anyone had anything on the board or even had their first turn.
