DangoDaikazoku Star Platinum

Hi my name is Cal, and just like the rest of you on this site I play Magic. My favorite formats are Modern and Commander. Most of my decks on this site are Modern decks and one of my favorite hobbies is to construct unconventional builds in an attempt to make them competitive in the Modern format. I either own or I am in the process of building all of the decks that appear on my profile below. If you have any questions or need help on a deck, I'd be more than happy to check it out so feel free to drop a comment on my wall. Cheers.

Said on Meren Homebrew...


If you can try to get a copy of Birthing Pod it works really well in terms of increasing value with Meren on the battlefield

Said on Spiders (G)...


I personally think your deck really needs some one drops, since Infiltration Lens is your only one drop in your deck. Since there are no 1 CMC spiders, might I recommend cheap ramp such as mana dorks like Elvish Mystic and Llanowar Elves? If that's too far off theme, then Utopia Sprawl would be my next suggestion, although I don't know what kind of budget you're planning on dropping on this deck.

I want to cry this Tajic is so lame. Mentor is just not that great, and why tf can't his ability prevent COMBAT damage?! That ability just feels so niche, I'm mad lol.

Jerkoid I wasn't entirely sure the sequencing could work like that so thank you for the clarification. I'll update my LabMan win category in the morning after my exam. Thank you! :)

I can see some interesting things coming out of it, especially if you run Sakashima the Impostor, but honestly it feels a bit underwhelming in EDH.

I swear the suspense about Tajic, or idk literally any good Boros commander is killing me. If they're waiting this long on spoiling Tajic he better be really good.

Since you plan on running mono-black devotion, I would recommend running a creature-base with a as a minimum in their mana costs, since Gray Merchant appears to be the only one in your deck who does. Some creatures that come to mind are Dauthi Slayer, Chittering Rats, Liliana's Specter, and Liliana's Shade. Another creature that benefits from black devotion in the pauper format worth considering is Marshmist Titan because he's easy to get out with enough devotion on the field. Hope this helps!

Might also be worth considering more two drop cards because your mana curve tells me that you need them. Maybe some draw power from Sign in Blood would be appropriate, but you can also add some removal like Chainer's Edict or Victim of Night.

Nah, I welcome this set with open arms. This new Lazav opened up a whole new realm of combos to me and I'm in love.

September 17, 2018 1:10 p.m.

zbluett since Lazav, the Multifarious will be used to copy Phage the Untouchable, Lazav would have already resolved, meaning he already exists as a permanent on the battlefield. By using his ability to copy Phage will not cause her ETB ability to trigger.

Suns_Champion I'm with you on that one laddy

September 17, 2018 11:02 a.m.

You use Necrotic Ooze who effectively shares both Pili-Pala and Palladium Myr's abilities when they are both in the graveyard, and the same goes for Grimgrin, Corpse-Born and Bloodline Keeper  Flip when they are in the graveyard as well. I explained step by step how the combos work in a comment above for reference. If you need any further clarifications please let me know, but I assure you the combos work with Necrotic Ooze as well as Lazav, the Multifarious as a copy of Ooze.

thom-le I was thinking about throwing in Arcanis the Omnipotent, but honestly Magus of the Bazaar seems to hold a lot more value in a deck like this. Thank you for your suggestion, I'll see if I can fit it in!

Said on 'A Man has ......


I like your list a lot, and your deck was one of the first decks I saw when I designed my own Lazav list so I took some inspiration from it. I do like the idea of using the Phyrexian Dreadnought and Vector Asp combo, but my list currently is not incorporating it due to the negative connotation my playgroup has with infect. For the sake of turning this deck into the combo heavy monstrosity I want it to be, I may have to throw those pieces in since really it's similar to the Phage win, but less expensive to pull off. I'm still trying to work out all the kinks in my list and make it more structured and consistent, but yeah I think I like your list so much because it's a little different from mine since mine is focusing on the infinite combo wins instead of the sneaky one shot win. This new Lazav is just so incredibly versatile.

September 15, 2018 3:44 p.m.

Palladium Myr + Pili-Pala + Walking Ballista : In this combo you have use Palladium Myr's tap ability to pay for Pili-Pala's untap ability to get one floating mana and repeat this process until you get infinite mana and spend that on Walking Ballista's ability and pay for infinite counters to ping everyone to death.

Bloodline Keeper + Grimgrin, Corpse-Born + Triskelion : this combo is a little different, but has a similar effect. Essentially you will tap Ooze to produce a Vampire token with Bloodline Keeper  Flip's ability, then sacrifice the token with Grimgrin, Corpse-Born's ability which places a +1/+1 counter on him and untaps him, and then you can repeat this process infinitely and then ping everyone to death with either Triskelion or Walking Ballista in the graveyard.

There are more combos that work similarly to produce this outcome, but these are the primary combos and the most straightforward to follow.

Megalomania No I haven't, but that's an excellent suggestion and it's definitely going in, thanks!

So my Lazav deck is coming along. I still need to fill some slots, likely with cantrips and such, as well as optimize my manabase too. I would really appreciate some feedback and suggestions to help improve this some more. I know there are cards with redundancies to others, but that's not a terrible thing really, unless of course I'm packing this deck with subpar options. I'm really just throwing things in that seem to combo well with Lazav and Ooze, so it has yet to become more structured until I'm looking at a solid base to work with. Let me know what you guys think! Thanks!

Lazav, the Necrotic Ooze

September 14, 2018 7:22 p.m.

Lazav, the Multifarious has grossly insane combo potential with redundancies to Necrotic Ooze packages as well as an interesting Invisible Stalker + Phage the Untouchable combo. You can also try to go a Laboratory Maniac route and effectively mill yourself, although it doesn't appear to be favorable compared to other things you can do with it. I'm working on drafting up a list right now, and if you all don't mind I can post it in here for review later. Regardless, I think it goes without saying that Lazav is incredibly versatile and I think he should be a somewhat high tier commander, maybe not tier one, but tier two or three seems reasonable.

Lazav, the Necrotic Ooze

Commander / EDH* DangoDaikazoku


Still needs work, AND a landbase, AND a description. I've really just been dumping Necrotic Ooze targets into the decklist for now and I will continue working on this some more a bit later. If you guys can think of any gross Ooze combos or anything that works well with Lazav please send them my way and bring them to my attention because I want this deck to be as combo heavy as I can possibly make it out to be.

September 14, 2018 11:46 a.m.

You can never have too many combos. I say if you can find a way to add those combos in with your current gameplan then go for that.

September 14, 2018 10:07 a.m.

I'm thinking that Vampiric Tutor could set up his surveil ETB trigger and I could pick up Necrotic Ooze that way. The Buried Alive package with Palladium Myr, Pili-Pala, and Walking Ballista can take care of the rest under ideal circumstances. I'm also thinking that I'll end up packing the deck with lots of self mill just to dump targets for ooze. With enough mill I could probably even go for a Laboratory Maniac win by copying him too. So much versatility with this guy!

September 13, 2018 9:12 p.m.

As much as I like the whole sneaky Phage wins with Lazav, you can probably pull off a gross Necrotic Ooze combo by copying ooze with Palladium Myr + Pili-Pala + Walking Ballista in the graveyard to generate infinite mana, infinite +1/+1 counters, and deal infinite damage. Correct me if I'm wrong, but hey man if this combo works I'm building it.
