This is a mono-blue EDH deck centered around theft spells and uses Thada Adel, Acquisitor as the commander. The primary game plan is to steal your opponents' good creatures and use it against them. Thada helps that along by allowing direct access to your opponents' artifact ramp and toolbox.

This deck has been one of my favorites to pilot. No two games ever end up the same since the deck plays completely different depending on your opponent. As a result, most of the time, this deck will automatically scale in power with your opponents. The more powerful their creatures and artifacts, the better your deck gets. It ends up punishing players for having too many answers once they start getting used against them.

Most of the time, I'll win through commander damage using my opponents' commanders. As a reminder, 21 commander damage from a single commander will kill a player, regardless whether it's your commander.


Updates Add

This deck is no longer built in paper and will not be updated any further. It's actually been dismantled for a long time and I just haven't gotten around to updating the page as you can see from the last update. I dismantled it because both my playgroup and I got bored with it. Games often resulted in the table afraid to play anything since they feared me stealing it, so every player suddenly played draw-go until someone comboed out or found a wincon that could win in one turn. It was incredibly frustrating and frustrating to play against.

That's not to say that I disliked the deck; it simply means that it didn't suit my playgroup at the time. I might rebuild it with better upgrades later in the future. Until then, I hope my decklist will help you build your own variants!
