Dralnu Control EDH deck

Basic idea of course being control the board as much as possible, set up certain combos:

Spell Crumple/ Hinder or Vessel of Endless Rest with Tunnel Vision will eliminate an opponent very quickly.

Sorin Markov takes an opponent down to 10 life. The remaining 10 life is normally pretty quick.

Any of the interactions with Deadeye Navigator are pretty hard to come back from as well.

Infinite Mana with a Blue Sun's Zenith allows me to deck an opponent at instant speed.

Interactions with Deadeye Navigator :

With Venser, Shaper Savant returns all my opponents' permanents to their hands and returns spells to their hands as well.

With Mulldrifter - draws 2 cards for 2 mana

With Rune-Scarred Demon - 2 mana reusable tutor

With Snapcaster Mage - flashback to lots of spells

With Mnemonic Wall/ Archaeomancer - return important instants or sorceries to hand.

With the above pairing and infinite mana, I can Boomerang all permanents to their owner's hands.

With Palinchron/Peregrine Drake- infinite mana

With Draining Whelk - Reusable 2 mana counter spell.

Other Interactions:

Ghostly Flicker is a game saver in many cases. Can be used in a number of ways including providing just enough mana to go infinite earlier than expected.

Archaeomancer/Mnemonic Wall + Palinchron/Peregrine Drake + Ghostly Flicker gives me infinite mana.

Palinchron with Phantasmal Image gives me infinite mana.

I know the mana base obviously needs work. That'll take some time to acquire the right cards.

Any help and suggestions are more than welcome though.


Updates Add

So i've taken this deck to a couple FNMs just for casual EDH play between matches and its done very well. It has the speed to take on decks 1 v 1 but thrives in multiplayer where I can sit back and wait to pull off my combo. Still need to work on the mana base, but that will take a bit of money and such. May add in a couple more mana rocks to help even it out a little.

Also added

Phantasmal Image and Consecrated Sphinx which replaced Isochron Scepter and Tamiyo, the Moon Sage . The scepter is great but I found that it was rare that it did anything productive. I never wanted to tutor for it as I always searched out combo pieces instead. And it was rare that I had the right tools in hand to play it out. Tamiyo had moments of greatness with vastly more moments of mediocrity. The sphinx and image are easily better in this deck.
