Commander player since 2012, nerd since birth. I love building decks at all levels of strength from jank to competitive. Favorite colors are abzan, but I have a lot of experience building in any color. Fairly new to the competitive side of the format, but with the help of those in my new playgroup and those on this site I hope to soon be able to hold my own against any given deck.

I play at HobbyTown U.S.A. in Lincoln, NE. Commander night is every Wednesday at 6 P.M.

Bloodstone Circle is my baby and will be the focus of most of my questions for quite some time. I learned some aspects of css because I wanted to make my favorite deck look as cool as possible. In addition to that I have began to custom build my own oaken Nightvale themed deck box specifically for this deck.

Other interests include Pathfinder, wood carving, Borderlands, Elder Scrolls, Fiction podcasts, high fantasy books, training my dog, and whatever my wife says.

Said on Abzan combos...


SP3CTR3_chelts that is a good combo, but I will probably wait on that til I decide to run thrasios/tymna so I have an outlet for that mana. It doesn't do much for my deck to have infinite mana honestly.

I would take a look at all of the cards 4 cmc or greater individually if I were you, and ask myself "does this win me the game?" I would cut most of your walkers and your high cmc creatures except craterhoof and elesh norn.

Sid_the_sloth you are right, they really don't use it. I have no idea why he said it did. Either way, they are not quite what I want simply due to the fact that to actually utilize either of them well I would have to change my deck almost entirely. Thanks though!

Try to cut it as slim as you can and come back to me when you are only 4 or 5 over. If it doesn't directly strengthen your main plan and you are unsure about the card, just whindmill slam it into a nope pile

Aaaaaaayyyyy!!!! +1 for this gnarly deck! I am honestly super flattered. Keep an eye out on my original, because some changes are incoming for some extra speed.

Got mine for 20 not too long ago, so I was just basing it off that. My bad

Demonic Tutor is always a great purchase

Abzkaban Love the conspiracy combos. I wont ever run them in this deck, but conspiracy is such a fun card. As I assumed unfortunately, I may need to just try to get elesh norn beats in if my yard is unusable. I really appreciate you for coming up with so many options, even if they won't quite fit my strategy.

Gidgetimer I love squirrelcraft for the memes, but I don't have many basics left in deck and I am trying to get more fetches whenever I can so earthcraft is pretty dead and squirrel nest is too slow to be any good for me without earthcraft online. I like where your head is at though

Abzkaban I have been considering adding Natural Order for some time now ( crash328 Eldritch Evolution too). I think i will test them both out for a bit soon and see how it goes.

As far as Kaya's Ghostform goes, that is a hard pass from me. It is a cute combo for sure, but it is disruptable with a Relic of Progenitus , Deathrite Shaman , etc... I have enough graveyard combos as it is.

lifemtg Gnarly combo, but it still sends primus to the graveyard long enough for it to be exiled. Thanks for the input though!

Looking for some strong combos or locks in abzan colors that don't involve using the graveyard. I have plenty of graveyard combos in my deck and I am just looking for another way to win through graveyard hate.

Bonus points if it uses any cards I already have, especially if the combo can be Protean Hulk ed into.

I am not trying to rain on your parade here at all, but I would say you should just get the best infect creatures and ignore the rest. Running every infect creature you can will weaken the deck substantially. I would also say that tutors and extra card draw may be the way to go if you only do a few infect creatures and still want to win 9/10 times due to infect.

Flusterstorm gets better as the decks get more competitive. 100% worth if people are commonly playing inf combos and multiple spells per turn

June 11, 2019 9:57 a.m.

Psychotic Fury is great for this with your sunforger package. Card draw is hard to come by in boros and in my opinion useful cantrips are key to keeping tempo.

Other options along this thought process include Abeyance , Balduvian Rage , Expedite , Gorilla War Cry , and Hallowed Moonlight but I don't think they are quite as good here as psychotic fury.

I agree with edengstrom1... for the most part. In casual decks most things don't happen til turn 3 or after anyway, and it is some decent ramp in those decks. Everybody has a few copies, so why not run it if the group is casual? Where I disagree is that EDH isn't just a casual format. As decks get stronger and faster and more towards cEDH levels, you will see almost none of these two cards because you need to be doing something more impactful with 3 mana. Turn 3 against strong decks can be the last turn and you can't waste it on mediocre ramp.

I suppose the haste would be nice for the twin combo

How do you feel about Combat Celebrant ? combos with both kiki and twin

multimedia I actually will have to disagree with you here. I would say that yawg is almost an auto include in a scorpion god deck. Scorpion god will probably never be cEDH caliber commander but he is fun to build around, so I think a 4 drop sac outlet/card draw/-1 counter/proliferate machine is more than powerful enough in a 4 drop slot.

Yawg is a pretty cool general, but I would say he is an entirely different strategy than the scorpion god as the commander. I think a yawg deck would be aristocrats rather than -1/-1 counters

I meant demonic instead of diabolic :P Good catch
