DrukenReaps Kid In A Candy Shop

I spend A lot of time on here.. Really too much. I don't have much else to do so MTG is a kind of obsession of mine. Been playing off and on since about 8th edition. I play EDH almost exclusively now. I've always been a combo player. It is just so satisfying to get a couple cards to work together to kill everyone at the table. However I also like it when everyone else gets to have fun so I tend to choose slower combos. Combos that require some setup like Repercussion + Blasphemous Act. It took roughly a decade (writing this in 2017, in case I forget to update that) but I have found my perfect deck. I call it Divine Decree. This deck does precisely what I want to be doing when I play. Still I'm constantly tinkering and it is really more of the idea of pillow fort and comboing off that I find fun.

So I've settled on Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker to command my Shadowborn Apostles in this deck Reaps Pawns.

I want the deck to focus on making tons of tokens. So far I have Abhorrent Overlord, Ogre Slumlord, Pawn of Ulamog, Rotlung Reanimator, Sifter of Skulls, Open the Graves, and Desecrated Tomb.

If there are others I've missed or you have other thoughts for the deck I'd like to hear about it. Thanks.

Having played the deck some more I think I will be adding a reanimation sub-theme for the creatures. This will even out the colors somewhat and allow me to more easily abuse or retrieve the big threats like Avenger of Zendikar.

The Chain Veil any time you have 4 or more walkers or a walker in the command zone I would strongly recommend this card. Admittedly it has flown out of most people's budget which makes me sad...

Crypt Ghast in any mono or deck.

Blackerlotus13 I generally keep to cards under $10 but will stretch above that for certain effects. The amulet has been a wonderful card in the deck from the beginning and it might be a few days but I'll definitely take a look over your list.

phosphorous? Purphoros, God of the Forge?

Alesha, Who Smiles at Death is pretty good for this kind of idea. use creatures that when they etb they make tokens like Grave Titan or Ponyback Brigade. Thesquishy has a solid example of such a deck Alesha Re-animator.

This looks like it can really get going pretty fast. Since one of your thoughts on winning is to delay with constant mists until you get set up you might consider Glacial Chasm as a second version of it. The downsides are just a non-issue for my deck. Nissa, Vital Force has an awesome emblem that you can get to rather quickly too, possibly even the turn she comes out thanks to Forge of Heroes. Worm Harvest can be another win con if you need it. One game my opponents just didn't get rid of my graveyard and I just kept making worms even after board wipes I was the quickest to recover. It really is an undervalued card. I won't suggest any more because your deck does look pretty tight.

So I was just poking around another deck and the builder of it pointed out he could equip lands for to Kemba, Kha Regent or Valduk, Keeper of the Flame with Bludgeon Brawl and Mycosynth Lattice. Might be worth really thinking about that lattice. You do become more vulnerable to say Vandalblast though...

October 8, 2018 2:59 a.m.

Clearly I'm tired as you have many additional combats already...

October 8, 2018 2:44 a.m.

So I dunno if this would make your deck more viable or more jank... You could use Karn, Silver Golem or similar with Mycosynth Lattice (already in the deck) to animate any planeswalker. There is already a bit of an artifact theme here so you could try out animating one of the darettis or Tezzerets.

Since helm of the host copies at combat step infinite or many extra combats could work well:

Aggravated Assault is likely the best since you just put mana into it. I would say Najeela, the Blade-Blossom too but honestly she just wins once you start using her ability... extra turns work too of course.

Another way to animate your walkers is Enchanted Evening and Opalescence or even better Starfield of Nyx since it brings Doubling Season back to play.

I wish you luck with this hilarious deck!

apex457 lol, yeah anytime something would 'die' or be 'sacrificed' it goes to the graveyard. Provided no Rest in Peaces or similar... I don't think I'll go for betrayal. It would be really good here but I'm more interested in exiling anything that I would want to get control of. More Grave Pacts are always a possibility. Thanks for your thoughts.

Gadianten Thanks for your thoughts. I was running those three lifegain victory conditions in another deck but they are coming out of there since it has moved somewhat away from lifegain only cards. They could definitely find a way in here. Sometimes I completely miss the obvious...

Gift of Immortality would work great with another build I ran across today. It utilized ETBs to generate tokens like Captain of the Watch. It might be a better way to go and I already have some really good options for that style. I do want to play it this way for a bit first though.

DangoDaikazoku since you talking about having multiple lists and some non-competitive things you might consider approaching MagicalHacker. He has quite a few lists related to different strategies and more common things like draw.

x1214Tango everything you mention would be great additions. Urborg and the fetches are missing because of cost. I might pick them up in a few months, so far I've enjoyed the deck but not super excited about it so I dunno if I'm keeping it around or if I'm going to make a Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire instead. I really like the chaos Vaevictis brings. Land destruction especially in the form of Strip Mine should be pretty busted with Lord Windgrace. I'm just not a fan of land destruction. A few of the more fair pieces should probably make it in though... I'll try and take a look at your deck within a few days.

Grandmaster5327 I'm not sure I understand you. Those cards are in the deck and I am removing them. They preform very well mind you I just think they will be better else where.

I'm going to be removing the 'lifegain' specific cards from this deck because I'm making a lifegain/token deck and I would like to make room for more 'bleed' and 'pillow' cards. So the following will come out to make room for some of the recent suggestions and other things I've been looking at:

Sanguine Bond, Vona, Butcher of Magan, Alhammarret's Archive, Words of Worship, Vizkopa Guildmage, Venser's Journal, Exquisite Blood, Aetherflux Reservoir

I'm not sure about all the additions as of yet so it might be awhile before this change happens.

No combo?!?!? Guess I'll just leave... :(

I kid, mostly.

Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow is a sweet deck. I haven't gotten my own all together but I've got a list Yuriko Hidden Tiger and I've watched other people playing her and having a lot of fun. There are a couple ways to go with her. Big CMC with few ninjas or lower CMC with many ninjas are the extremes.

I'm going to start making my Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim token deck soon. Thanks for the ideas but I just really love her payoffs the most.

Thanks guys! So I've come down to Ramos, Dragon Engine, Ghave, Guru of Spores, or Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim.

Ramos, Dragon Engine would be a superfriends deck with a focus around making tokens. I've made superfriends before and noticed they really need something like tokens to defend them... And there are some bonkers token generators in the form of Liliana, the Last Hope and Elspeth, Sun's Champion among others. Plus I get all 5 colors here so any time a good token user or walker comes out I can just slide it into the deck.

Ghave, Guru of Spores is just a badass. He can easily go wide and tall, aggressive or aristocrats... If it is tokens he does it and in what are likely the best token colors.

Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim is easily one of the scariest commanders that I've played against. Once the deck is set with a decent life total you just don't get to have fun stuff. She doesn't produce tokens but she makes great use of them and missing green is a bit annoying for tokens but not the worst.

Those are my thoughts as of this time. I'm going to start just looking through my cards and see what I have. If you have thoughts that might push me towards one or the other feel free to share.

Thanks for all your ideas so far!

goodair I tend towards combos and aristocrat strategies over just attacking. That said I'm really looking more and more at Saskia...

So I miss having a token deck and I'm currently looking at the following to head such a deck: Ramos, Dragon Engine, Saskia the Unyielding, Lyzolda, the Blood Witch, Savra, Queen of the Golgari, or Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim

Looking to make something casual like my other decks and if you recommend another commander it must at least be .

I'm just kinda stuck on what I want to do with the deck right now... So maybe show off your own cool token decks please? Preferably something that might be a little less expected.

DangoDaikazoku I'm glad I didn't get around to completing the order of cards, Unlife could be fun to toy with.

Grandmaster5327 the chandra was placed kinda randomly because she does so much, it just so happens that when I play her the ability is usually the most useful... Glacial Chasm and Maze of Ith don't make mana but are strong pillow effects so that is why they fall under the pillow category rather than the mana one. Hope that reasoning makes sense to more than just me.

Glad you guys are liking the deck.
