Lhurgyof Lich Lord of Maine

I live in the snowy state of Maine and I play EDH casually with my friends and local gamers. I make new decks and take old ones apart pretty often, so I try to keep my profile page full of only my current decks. If you like any of them, feel free to comment or +1. If you any suggestions or advice, I'd love to hear it.

My favorite color in MTG would probably be black. A close second would be blue. I've taken to myself as a control player, and I like cool combos (not infinite combos, but fun interactions, like Goblin Welder, Spine of Ish Sah, and Mindslaver). I don't much care for combo decks, but I won't get too upset if a combo ends a 2 hour long game. Sure, it's not the epic battle I hoped for, but at least I can play a new game.

I don't play competitively much. Sometimes I do drafts and pre-releases, but I have yet to play Standard, Legacy, Vintage, or even EDH in a competitive environment.

If you ever want advice on a deck, feel free to leave me a comment and I'll check it out; I like to think I give good suggestions.

I feel like Nettlevine Blight would be pretty decent in here.

Said on Tatyova Stax...


How do you feel about Invoke Prejudice? Seems like a pretty strong card for a stax deck.

+1, love the deck. I wish I had hopped on the chance to get a Tabernacle back when they were like $300.

seshiro_of_the_orochi's challenge:

Brimaz, Outcast of Orescos

Legendary Creature - Cat Soldier

Haste, First Strike

Whenever ~ attacks, you may exile a card from your graveyard. If the exiled card was a creature, create a 2/2 black cat zombie creature token tapped and attacking. Otherwise, gain 2 life.


I'm imagining a time spiral type of situation where instead of a hero of the Orescos, Brimaz was exiled from the clan and turned to nefarious deeds.

(sorry for no image, no access to magicseteditor at work).

I'll repeat SteelZephyr's challenge: Another scheme, this time one that's a major threat to the players, but rewards them if abandoned.

Said on 4. Hylian Hyjinx!...


Maybe Minamo, School at Water's Edge could be useful for untapping creatures if you don't want to use freed.

Said on The Dead Only ......


Thanks, PrideGreen. I haven't gotten any Ravnica yet, but I'll be on the lookout for a Plaguecrafter.

I do like Bane of Progress too, I just worry that having roughly 20% of the deck be artifacts and enchantments, it might hit some of my important stuff. Would Reclamation Sage be better?

Thanks for the input, ScrubbinBubl. I know there are better reanimator commanders out there, but I really liked Gyrus and thought it might be fun to build around him. Gray Merchant of Asphodel is indeed very strong, but in a tri-color deck it might not be the greatest. Priest of the Blood Rite I was looking into myself. Since the token it would make upon being reanimated would stick around.

As far as sac outlets go, I already have:

So I'm not sure if I necessarily need any more.

Thanks again for the input, folks.

Said on We All Need ......


Interesting take on Maelstrom Wanderer. I never really know what to suggest for chaos decks, because generally it seems the idea is to make things as interesting as possible as opposed to necessarily winning.

I guess as far as specifics go, I would drop your dork and sakura tribe elder for a Skyshroud Claim and maybe Nature's Lore. I fell like you'd get a lot more mileage out of those with all the nonbasics you have.

Is there any particular reason for Compulsive Research? I feel like Brainstorm would be much more efficient, and it sets up your top deck for when you cast your commander.

The Dead Only See in RGB

Commander / EDH* Lhurgyof


Just built a deck with Gyrus at the helm. It's pretty much an ETB self mill/reanimator deck focused on my commander.

There are so many cards I have that I want to include but don't really have room for. Let me know if I'm missing anything obvious.

October 6, 2018 4:04 a.m.

October 3, 2018 9:27 p.m.

Bottled Time


Embody (you may cast this card face down as a 2/2 colourless creature for . You may pay its mana cost at any time to exile it face up. Until end of turn, you may cast it from exile without paying its mana cost. If you don't, put it into your graveyard at the end of turn.)

Target player takes an extra turn after this one.

Since I got skipped: Make a legendary Pegasus

October 3, 2018 11:29 a.m.

Modern_Brews got skipped.

Aether-Spark Orb


Whenever a player casts an instant or sorcery spell, put a charge counter on Aether-spark Orb, then it deals damage to that player equal to the number of charge counters on it.

Zalgo, Scion of Ancient Truths

Legendary Creature - Demon Horror


If Zalgo would deal combat damage to an opponent, instead that player exiles that many cards from the top of their library.

Whenever a creature dies, it's controller exiles the top two cards of their library.

At the beginning of each player's upkeep, if they own 30 or more cards in exile, they lose the game.


Make a Legendary pegasus!

Totem Armor

Enchanted creature is an Atog in addition to it's other types

Sacrifice a Creature: Enchanted creature gets +3/+3 until end of turn.

Kind of a Pemmin's Aura type card, but requires saccing like Atog abilities.

Create an Atog that eats planeswalkers.

October 2, 2018 11:52 a.m.

Test of Humanity


Chose one:

  • Destroy target non-human creature. It can't be regenerated.

  • Target human creature gets +2/+2 and lifelink until end of turn.

Hopefully it's not too cryptic or subtle.

Why not create a non-basic wastes?

When ~ leaves the battlefield, exile all nightmare creature tokens you control.


I wanted to do a rare upgraded to a mythic as well:

Phyrexian Juggernaut

Artifact Creature - Horror Juggernaut

As an addition cost to cast ~, you may sacrifice any number of creatures. If you do, ~ costs less to cast, where X is the total power of creatures sacrificed this way.



(Phyrexian Dreadnought is the base card here)

Your challenge is to make a mono red counterspell that is good while not violating the color pie too much.

October 1, 2018 1:55 a.m.

Krenko, Goblin Schemer

Legendary Creature - Goblin Advisor

Flash, Trample

Krenko costs less to cast for each other creature that entered the battlefield this turn.
