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.

Looks fun but I'm not sure why you would include Estrid's Invocation . You only have one possible target for it. It is a good target but I think you would be better off with something like Fervor . My own experience with Mairsil has shown me how incredible haste is.

I've no list but there are some neat cats to include:

Qasali Pridemage , Leonin Warleader , Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist , Regal Caracal , Jazal Goldmane , Qasali Slingers , Temur Sabertooth , Brimaz, King of Oreskos , Felidar Sovereign , Nacatl War-Pride , Jareth, Leonine Titan and Fleecemane Lion .

I know some of these came in the deck or are really obvious but the seem to be among the better ones, i think.

Angelic Accord is nice but you are more of a sac deck than a lifegain deck so this requires the most work to get anything out of in your 4 drop slot.

Vindictive Vampire is the other I'd consider removing because while it fits perfectly there are other cards that do the same thing so you may not need the redundancy.

burferking I've used some untappers and have kept the ones I think are the best but I really think flicker effects work so much better than untapping and tutors for those flickers are better than untapping. Just my experience with it so far.

smackjack stuff like that is great.

I have a pretty good Mairsil, the Pretender deck, Should I Pretend This Or That?, but I'd like to make it jankier instead of more powerful.

I want to find more cards like Chaos Wand . That is either artifacts or creatures with weird activated abilities. The stranger the better.

Thanks for your thoughts.

bushido_man96 walkers tend to stick around for a bit in my meta and one of my friends recently fell in love with Zacama, Primal Calamity so it is actually my enchantments that haven't been doing so well, lol.

Since you mention control-combo I have to plug my favorite deck Should I Pretend This Or That?. It requires you to control the game on some level until you can pull the right pieces together to win. My version is toned down a bit but should be good for most metas.

There are some commanders that would like scapeshift if you want to play it. Lord Windgrace , Omnath, Locus of Rage , and The Gitrog Monster . All of which are strong decks, Gitrog can even be a competitive deck.

February 12, 2019 1:42 a.m.

Myr Moonvessel and Su-Chi , scry fall didn't show any others.

Depending on what exactly you are doing you might really like Sifter of Skulls and Pawn of Ulamog too.

I love Mairsil, the Pretender . He can be troublesome to get going because you really need to cage a flicker effect like AEtherling . Once that is out of the way though he turns into one of the hardest to kill commanders I've ever played or seen played. I usually don't kill people with commander damage like a normal voltron deck does but the option is there. Usually I combo off with him in some gross fashion like Tree of Perdition + Spikeshot Elder . Still I tend to think of the deck in a manner similar to voltron because of how commander reliant it is.

February 11, 2019 1:37 a.m.

There is a combo in this list

There might be a better way to go about it now but that one works.

For the commander I might go with either Hazoret the Fervent or Mina and Denn, Wildborn .

Hazoret wants an empty or almost empty hand and if you get Frenzy before you empty your hand you could still get an effect from those cards.

Wildborn is probably the stronger of these two. Frenzy says 'play' so you can play lands from your library but after the first one you would be stuck. Wildborn allows you to play 2 lands and get access to other green effects that play extra lands so the frenzy can go further each turn before you get stuck. You would also often have more mana this way to play more non-lands.

I'm not sure what other specific commander might work but another good effect would be the ability to get frenzy back from your graveyard. Either to play or hand. The ability to tutor it up is needed too.

Rings works with either monolith.

Well damn... I'll have to pay a little more attention to this kind of interaction then.

Soul of New Phyrexia or Avacyn, Angel of Hope are good ones for this. Other options are to bring them back to play with Starfield of Nyx which can also help win the game, Open the Vaults , Replenish if you have the $$, and Sun Titan for the cheaper ones.

Because everything is dying simultaneously all effects are still in place. So the Preserver sees the Butcher and says no.

I think it varies a lot based on the deck and the meta. However I start with around 10 answers in a deck at least 3 of which are board wipes. Often this turns out to be heavy handed and I reduce it but I do have Should I Pretend This Or That? which has 17 cards that are dedicated answers, I could easily say the number is a little higher than that even.

One of my friends runs a Zacama, Primal Calamity deck which has built in removal so he has more like 5 answers in the deck and then just tons and tons of mana generation...

bushido_man96 I definitely need to balance creature only reanimation with any permanent reanimation. I should have a meren around here somewhere though.

bushido_man96 Thanks! I'm half thinking I need to pick up 4 or so copies of thornbite... The card just seems to be good in a lot of places. Feldon would be great too.

I'm going to have to really revamp this deck...
