Ultimate FC combo cEDH - The First Sliver

Commander / EDH


The First Sliver is now the best commander for Food Chain combo. He allows extra room for consistency and answers because the deck itself wins the game when Food Chain combo is assembled. No additional win-con cards that do nothing outside the combo are required. Fewer dead cards means more resilient, more consistent, and more card choices to switch for your own meta. RIP to General Tazri and Niv-Mizzet Reborn .

This version of deck list is more resilient because I like to have back-up plans: Noxious Revival , Riftsweeper , Pull from Eternity , Memory's Journey , Yawgmoth's Will .

The First Sliver also generate value on cast, oppose to Niv-Mizzet Reborn that 70% of the time fail to reveal a two-color card or General Tazri who gets a useless ally. The First Sliver can usually cascade into something usable: tutor, kill spell, draw, ramp...anything other than counter spells are net gain.

Win-con: Jace, Wielder of Mysteries : if you can empty the library. Alternatively, Timetwister / Memory's Journey + Noxious Revival + Foresight / Extract / Manipulate Fate loop to exile all lands and counter spells then cast all spells.

Timetwister + Memory's Journey or Timetwister / Memory's Journey + Noxious Revival can help you cast your deck infinitely many times, combined with Extract / Assassin's Trophy win you the game.


Updates Add

Swapped out sub-optimal tutors Diabolic Intent and Sterling Grove for Intuition and Sevinne's Reclamation for testing.

Intuition is aim for instant answer search as well as looking for the combo pieces. Search for Squee, the Immortal , Food Chain , and Sevinne's Reclamation wins on the spot, with high number of fetch lands this deck is running Sevinne's Reclamation can bring a land to offset the high cost casting from graveyard.

If cast-from-exile creatures are already in exile zone then find mana-positive permanents can be helpful.

In situation where Sevinne's Reclamation is not in the library search for the cheapest tutors or graveyard recursions with FC
