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. Lincoln Commander League is every Wednesday at 6 P.M.

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

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.

I think they are fine in decks that contain a single color that they are. The rc decided when they made the format how color identity worked for deckbuilding and because of that people seem to really be against hybrid, but it could have been worded differently or an addendum for hybrid could have been added easily and very little difference overall would be made apart from blue decks needing to worry about Vexing Shushers more. That being said, I don't think they absolutely need to be allowed to work the way they normally do in other formats. It annoys me a bit that they don't, but it isn't a big issue in my eyes and I can just continue to play hybrid as I have no problem (only with both colors available to my deck).

I would say take out your secondary combo and add more draw

Are you planning on taking this to casual tables or to cutthroat competitive tables? I have different suggestions depending on that answer. Either way, Walking Ballista is something you should really consider.

I play dark rit in my EDH deck. It is suuuuper good in edh still, people just don't realize that until they play against competitive decks. The reason it is better than bog witch is that it only costs 1 mana and is instant speed whereas bog witch is a total of 4 mana has summoning sickness

Goryo's Vengeance Corpse Dance Makeshift Mannequin Shallow Grave Necromancy can all do it. Out of these, the only one I would actually suggest playing is Necromancy but not at all because it could reanimate ulamog

Tana, the Bloodsower & Tymna the Weaver. Just keep attacking to draw and drawing into more attackers so you get to timmy harder just by timmying in the first place. Foolproof. Tana&Tymmy

My suggestion would be to plan on not ever actually playing him. There are instant speed ways to reanimate him with the shuffle trigger on the stack, but they generally arent very good because they are either a bit narrow in use or force you to sac the reanimated creature at end step. You could use Rakdos, Lord of Riots or a bunch of mana rocks to cast ulamog, but that will dilute your strategy to a point where I wouldn't consider it worth it.

The best possible reanimate targets in your colors are Vilis, Broker of Blood and Razaketh, the Foulblooded. Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite is not far behind as a bit of a board wipe and a buff to your other creatures, but doesn't give card advantage like the others to help leverage the win. All 3 of these see play in reanimator decks in cEDH even. If you are looking for something spicy that isn't highly played though, Yosei, the Morning Star can be reanimated and used turn after turn as a lockdown piece if you are so inclined.

You technically do have 2 different 2 card combos that go "infinite". Both of the discard win cons plus Keen Sense draw and discard an unbound amount of cards and Kozilek makes it so you don't draw yourself out so you can keep going as long as someone is still alive.

Not saying you should take it out, because they all work well for the deck but just thought you should be aware

I see. I was thinking you were saying t1 win with hulk and was very confused as to how you were getting 5gggu(?) mana and casting hulk then neoform without just being able to win outright with fc combos regardless of hulk.

Hulk seems suspect here without flash imo.

"discarding Eldrazi Conscription and bringing it back with Nomad Mythmaker , and just smashing with a 56/54 lifelinking flampler with vigilance and double strike." To me this seems like a bit overkill and a bit mana intensive, but you do you. Uril storm seems like a cool idea but I think I would focus just on that rather than making uril big and keywordy, because he will get big regardless in an aura heavy build.

Important to note, don't play Reliquary Tower effects if you want the discard win cons.

Firebrand Archer Glint-Horn Buccaneer Brallin, Skyshark Rider  Flip can all act as win cons for you. Buccaroo and brallin can combo with Snake Umbra and Keen Sense as well to win on your end step if you get above 7 cards in hand and need to discard. Even archer combos with them, but not in a way that wins on the spot. I would also personally add in an eldrazi titan if you can so you can shuffle your graveyard and draw even more.

Yeah, this wall of text is a tad difficult to parse. The deck builder is a fantastic tool that gives some more details like avg cmc, your color and land distributions etc.
