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 or combo decks that require a certain level of setup. It took a long time but I found my all time favorite decks, Divine Decree and Should I Pretend This Or That?. These reflect me preferred way of playing pretty well, that is slow and steady until someone pokes the bear.

Mairsil, the Pretender tends towards combos but some of them are more like wicked interactions and are not infinite.

Spikeshot Elder // Hateflayer + Tree of Perdition + a way to reset Mairsil's toughness like AEtherling , this allows you to kill 1 player each turn.

Laboratory Maniac + Mirror-Mad Phantasm , empty library with a caged mirror mad and win.

And using Pestilent Souleater or Vector Asp with AEtherling is sneakier than most people realize.

Umezawa's Jitte is going to overperform in most games.

TypicalTimmy well Thantis grows rather quickly and will knock people out of the game in just 1 or 2 swings if I'm attacked that often. There are also several board wipes that don't touch planeswalkers and cards like Sandwurm Convergence , Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs , and Crawlspace . Honestly the deck is more about fun and progressing the game rather than sitting pretty like so many people do game after game after game... Every attack at a walker instead of my life total is a win as far as I'm concerned too.

So I should probably wait for the entire reveal of war of the spark to see potential upgrades but I'm impatient...

I'm building a superfriends deck with Thantis, the Warweaver at the head of it. SuperThantis is what I've put together and I was hoping for some suggestions on things that might be better.

I had a Karn, Silver Golem deck that was underestimated for a short time. Even 10-ish years ago there were dirty combos to play in it, lol. I did Darksteel Forge + Nevinyrral's Disk + Mycosynth Lattice several games in a row and since then I rarely get a game where I go unmolested for long. Doesn't matter what I play now but I deserve it, lol.

Huh, well first you have to drop a card and add your commander. The format requires a commander + 99.

I would definitely focus more on creatures than on sorceries/instants/anything else. Thromok the Insatiable lives and dies by whether or not you have a decent number of creatures. That said having theft effects would be a great way to feed him! Captivating Crew is a favorite of mine.

This page is great for seeing what the average deck plays along with him https://edhrec.com/commanders/thromok-the-insatiable

People also tend to average 36+ lands these days but having green can alleviate the need for more lands.

....So I was totally misreading Feather.... I was thinking the card that goes back to hand is the targeted creature, which really just doesn't make sense. Now I understand it is the instant/sorcery that was cast that goes back to hand... I'll throw together my own version and see what happens!

April 9, 2019 4:21 a.m.

Interesting idea. I would be ok with someone doing this as long as they say as much before the game.

I'm honestly not sure what to even think of Feather... It is such a weird ability but I'm really looking forward to what you do with her!

I play a roughly 75% Mairsil deck, Should I Pretend This Or That?, it is my favorite deck with a multitude of ways to win and do weird stuff. It is kinda hard to explain how weird he is without showing you... Yes you can do the normal well established combos, some of which are in my deck, and just win many games. Or you can run silly things like Chaos Wand . I also have a large list of things I've used and things I'm considering here MTG List: Mairsil Possibilities. On occasion I've searched for every grixis creature and artifact with a : on it... It is a rather massive search but it finds some neat things now and then.

I suppose most games with him start pretty linear. You want to try and draw extra cards or mill yourself asap. After that you hopefully have a good cage target that can flicker/bounce. From there however things really open up and you can just use whatever abilities you want.

I dunno if Rayenous will make it viewable or even has the list still so I would start by looking over the following stolen from that forum and build from there.

KrazyCaley said "Rayenous has it.

There are multiple ways to do it, but they all involve variations on the same basic pattern.

Step 1 - Mindslaver + Academy Ruins lock.

Step 2 - Prevent your opponent and preferably also yourself from losing (since this procedure will take a long time) through the use of Platinum Angel or Abyssal Persecutor .

Step 3 - Donate a mechanism to your opponent whereby they can put cards they own into their deck. Rayenous used Research on an Isochron Scepter . My version of this deck used Death Wish (which works since our opponent can't lose the game while we have the Angel/Persecutor out), but Research is faster. Repeatedly have them add in cards until their entire collection is in the deck. Note that you will probably also need to Donate something that generates any color mana to your opponent as well.

Step 4 - Use Amulet of Quoz to convert their entire deck, which is now their entire collection, into their ante (true, we'd have to be playing with ante rules, which are now gone, but hey, that's the fun).

Step 5 - Blow up whatever thing you set up to prevent your opponent from losing.

Step 6 - Enjoy all your friend's Magic cards."

Now I don't foresee anyone agreeing to ante so you might leave that part out... Also a lot of people even in casual games will say that only a side board can be added in with wish cards and commander doesn't use a side board. So most people play with the idea that if you use wish cards you need to let them know ahead of time.

At this point I would be looking at a commander. Maybe? Could add in another color if you want... Parhaps use Lazav, Dimir Mastermind and mill their crazy sized library to the grave? Actually a better option might be The Mimeoplasm for the commander. Cards like Villainous Wealth would be great.
