Tomik's Taxes

Commander / EDH Oldcrow80


Testing —April 14, 2019

I have decieded to remove kismet and hero of bladehold for Gideon Blackblade and Blackblade Reforged. As well as gift of estates for Brimaz. However these changes might be reverted if I don't feel like they work well.

I may have missed this, but it may be smart to add Tithe or Weathered Wayfarer for some more ramp. +1 btw

*ramp/card advantage

I’d take out Kismet ; it’s a redundant and overcosted effect. First, your already have Authority of the Consuls . Second, most of the time, by the time Kismet hits the board, the table will be done ramping, and it won’t matter whether or not someone misses a land drop, or plays a mana rock that does nothing when it hits(at least in cEDH).

Oops didn’t see that you already have weathered wayfarer.

I have been considering tithe for a while now honestly. Also Kismet saves my bacon in my personal playgroup far too often. However I can understand why I should consider removing it.

At least replace it with Imposing Sovereign , it’s more cost-efficient, albeit more narrow relative. Also add tithe. It’s great ramp and cars advantage for a color that has little of either.

I hate this deck, which probably means you're doing something right

Glowrider , Sanctum Prelate , Sphere of Resistance and if your feeling mean try Stony Silence with Null Rod because no one should be allowed to have fun.

Most of those cards were in the deck at some point (except nullrod and the prelate) however I am currently testing how well it works without taxing my own non creature spells. I will possibly re-add them later if this proves ineffective. But thank you for those suggestions!

Mindcrank would be so good with the second ability.
