    A while ago, I really noticed that I had a preference towards decks with little to no creatures. In an effort to expand my playstyle, I constructed an EDH based off the concept of Kiki-chord. After playing the deck over and over, I found myself charmed my ETB creatures and comboing folks out. After continuous changes, Ive landed on a five-color creature toolbox thats a blast to play. The base of the deck is , splashing and for win-cons and tutors. If you enjoy getting the most possible value out of the creatures youre playing, you will appreciate my list.

No Flameshadow Conjuring/Parallel Lives? With your other token out put this would just be another helper, especially if you get AEther Adept/Man-o'-War with your Conjurer's Closet to always propagate tokens with riku every turn. I have found this to be a very good combo with Acidic Slime or the bouncer before mentioned for control (or even with Craterhoof Behemoth). Now for the final suggestion Sundial of the Infinite, activate this during your end step while all your creatures tokens are on the stack to be exiled and you get to keep them all.

I also have a Riku deck, let me know what you think. Reflections Past and Future.

Why not Eerie Interlude over Ghostway, just in case there are some creatures you want to keep for the turn?

To RainbowInferno,

That is a good point. However in most cases, I'm just going to blink all of my creatures, since I'm using in as an anti-board wipe card. Also, Eerie Interlude is much cheaper, hehe.

Since you (quite rightly) fear Torpor Orb, perhaps you should run some stuff to remove it if you run into it? Krosan Grip, Return to Dust, Revoke Existence, Fade into Antiquity, Shattering Blow, Angelic Purge, Fate Forgotten, and more would all make good counters to a card that single-handedly hoses your deck. You probably also want some stuff to remove Hushwing Gryff since it too hurts you badly.

Another idea I just had, what about the artifact that gives the equipped creature myriad? With so many enter the battlefield triggers you could get off of that, it could be crazy.

How about Eldrich Evolution? :>

November 4, 2016 7:28 a.m.

GregariousG says... #7

Eldritch Evolution should 100% be in the deck. I have no clue what to cut though. Suggestions?

November 4, 2016 11:56 a.m.

EpicFreddi says... #8

I don't like Lyev Skyknight. I feel like it does to little in edh to be relevant. You need to flicker it every turn to get value out of it.

November 4, 2016 12:05 p.m.

GregariousG says... #9

I think your assessment is correct. E-EVOLVUTION seems better all the time. Thanks for the input.

Jormdaworm says... #10

Thanks for the excellent read and the thought process you went through to make this deck. I don't have anything to add however, as I haven't played edh ever and the high mana things seem silly to me still. :feign ignorance:

MagicalHacker says... #11

With only two black cards and a commander that doesn't have an ability that triggers when it enters and a theme of Birthing Pod and at least one partner with an etb ability, I think all signs are pointing to using Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder and Thrasios, Triton Hero as your commanders. To say that Bruse Tarl's ability isn't useful is to say that you will never be close to death and need lifelink, that opponents will never be close to death and die from double strike, and that you don't care to Birthing Pod him unto Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker.

I hope my words have begun to write a new chapter in the story of this deck.

January 24, 2017 9:33 a.m.

GregariousG says... #12

Thanks, Jormdaworm. Glad you enjoyed the read. MagicalHacker, I've thought about using Bruse Tarl//Thrasios as my commanders. It's just that Bruse isn't good. I know he gives double strike and lifelink, but I'd mostlikely to swing with a 2/2. I rather have the light black splash for Sidsi, which tutors and puts creatures into my graveyard. I know Reaper King isn't the most efficient commander for this deck, but he does the job. If there was a better Boros partner with an ETB, then I would consider cutting the black.

January 24, 2017 8:31 p.m.

MagicalHacker says... #13

What about the versatility with Birthing Pod effects?

January 24, 2017 9:05 p.m.

GregariousG says... #14

I still don't think that makes him good enough. Targets for poding into Kiki-Jiki has never been a problem with this deck.

LVL_666 says... #15

You spun a tale of woe that is deserving of a +1. As a Sliver Player I too sit and wait for a top tier Sliver to finally come along to be the commander that the hive mind deserves. From what I understand, Slivers are a "sometimes only" affair with Magic, as they tend to attract negative attention. However, I too can relate. Maybe the next cycle will grant you the commander you deserve.

acefalo says... #16

I'm brewing another ETB based EDH, and i find this deck really cool. My approach is a little different, but hey! EDH and flickering FTW!

I know you've got few enchantments, however, how about Academy Rector? It is tutorable with Recruiter of the Guard, it is sacrificable to Birthing Pod, bringing directly to the battlefield, let's says a Purphoros, God of the Forge as enchantment and another 5 mana creature like Karmic Guide or Reveillark and recurring something else from your graveyard or Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and recurring something else.

PS: I hate Torpor Orb too, but I have a playset in my Phyrexian Dreadnought deck

February 17, 2017 9:51 a.m.

TheDoctor_Y2K says... #17

This deck having a bounce mechanic, I'm slightly disappointed not to see Brago, King Eternal granted he is more flicker everything you have with ETB. Also, maybe Clone Legion and Into the Wilds

I'd love to buy this deck, it seems amazing but the unfortunate thing... over my budget.

Keep it up my dude!

JoltsOfEnergy says... #18

Really love the deck. Just seems a shame that you can't get more use out of your commander. If it's only good to potentially kill something in combination with Kiki-Jiki or Splinter Twin then it's really a waste. Have you considered Child of Alara? Could be a decent reset button in case your opponents out-pace you. Or maybe Horde of Notions? He has 3 relevant keywords and can brink back elementals like Mulldrifter and Reveillark. Plus with him you could consider adding cards like Shriekmaw, Tyrant of Discord, AEthersnipe and Avenger of Zendikar who all have very relevant ETB triggers. And maybe Maelstrom Wanderer who can help you get more things on the field and give everything haste.

February 20, 2017 2:09 p.m.

GregariousG says... #19

To JoltsOfEnergy,

I think your assessment of Horde of Notions is correct, even if it is just for Mulldrifter and Reveilark. Shriekmaw probably will be added in as well. I'm not sure what to cut though, probably Sin Collector as it is a meta dependent card.

dotytron says... #20

this is an awesome deck man i wish i had half the cards to make it work

my only suggestion would be to try some of the monument cards from amonkhet for some more creature etb benefits

April 20, 2017 2:15 p.m.

GregariousG says... #21

To dotytron,

Thanks! I always appreciate comments. These are the cards I'm looking to possibly add for Almond Cat, in order of importance:

    Cascading Cataracts

None of these cards have ETBs, but add a ton of utility. Of all the monuments, Hazoret's Monument has the most promise. I also want to add Angel of Sanctions, but might be just too cute to add to the deck.

April 21, 2017 9:56 a.m.

Vectoro says... #22

You might consider Ashes of the Fallen. Name Elementals, and Horde can return any creature in your deck. Though I can see how finding something to cut may prove difficult.

April 30, 2017 11:26 p.m.

quick question- what do you do in the face of Humility? I see close to no removal outside of anguished unmaking and c rift (outside of the creatures). Finally, no Conspiracy?

May 2, 2017 9:49 a.m.

Hidran says... #24

There aren't enough elementals to warrant the use of Horde of Notions. Just use Progenitus. It sums up quite nicely the five color good stuff fustercluck you have here.

GregariousG says... #25

To chaosumbreon87,

The same thing Superman does when he encounters kryptonite; dramatically scream, lay on the floor, and get wrecked.

your text here
Unlike kryptonite, not everyone and their mothers play Humility, Torpor Orb, or Hushwing Gryff. Here's the numbers according to EDHREC:That's not alot, in comparison to Wood Elves at 11931. If they have one of these silver bullets, then good on them. I do see you point that I could have more non-ETB removal.

To Hidran,

I can Birthing Pod HoN. HoN's ability does have some relevance.

To Vectoro,

That card is cool, but I don't think it is relevant enough to put in the deck. It's something to think about thhough.

Penthoplayer says... #26

If your budget allows, Survival of the Fittest is strictly better than Fauna Shaman.

May 31, 2017 6:25 p.m.

teslamon says... #27

Crib Swap is a great addition to the deck. Solid removal at worst, five mana recurible removal with HoN out because of changeling.

July 31, 2017 8:21 p.m.

In the past I would have recommended Conspiracy to make all your creatures targets for your commander.

However, leaks have blessed us with the knowledge that a strictly better alternative is in Ixalan that I suggest once it's available--Arcane Adaptation:

Magnivore says... #29

I think your average CMC is high for the number of lands you have. Hope do you combat an early Blood Moon (Magus) or Torpor Orb (Hushwing) effect?

October 4, 2017 8:27 a.m.

Penthoplayer says... #30

If you want another easy wincon, I'd like to show you Protean Hulk, Viscera Seer, and Saffi Eriksdotter. All three of these are good outside the combo, but with Karmic Guide and Reveilark, already in your deck, you get to tutor out to the field all creatures with CMC 6 or less, and put them on the field. Go further? Flash means all your ETBs are now potentially 2-mana instant.

October 4, 2017 10:11 a.m.

GregariousG says... #31

Thanks everyone for the comments and input. It's been awhile since I've been able to sit down, update the deck, and answer some questions.

To Penthoplayer,

    Originally, I was kinda against using Protean Hulk. However, this card and the cards that support it are just to silly not to play.

To Magnivore,

    My experience as a Tron player has taught me to fetch for a forest early if I see a red player. Torpor Orb-effects don't really bug me that much. Caustic Caterpillar is for Torpor Orb and I added some non-creature removal for Hushwing Gryff and Tocatli Honor Guard. These types of effects also hinder other players so I won't be the only one trying to remove them. However, your comment inspired me to lower my curve to a reasonable level

October 14, 2017 8:16 a.m.

halophilic says... #32

So....doesn't Ramos, Dragon Engine just become the default 5c commander or what?

October 23, 2017 12:28 p.m.

Because you don't have many elementals Ramos, Dragon Engine might be a better commander

October 24, 2017 3:42 p.m.

DBras says... #34

Maybe im missing something, but how do you trigger the slow lands? theres only two asics that i see. do they just come in tapped usually? just curious

December 2, 2017 8:01 a.m.

GregariousG says... #35

To DBras,

Yes, they usually come in tapped. I try to fetch for them first if my hand is slow. Canopy Vista and Cinder Glade are remnants from when the deck was slower. In all reality, I could get away with them just being Forests.I just never thought about changing them because it hasn't bitten me in the butt.....yet.
