hey man :)
should you want to test your Cheeri0s against grixis control, give me a shout. I'd be delighted.
I'm on cockatrice, preferably, btw.

This discussion has been fielded a few times here before.
Basically, the Phyrexians have no way of infecting the eldrazi, their main way of taking over a plane, since their fleshy bodies are just manifestations of their consciousness. (Exception: when kozilek and ulamog were bound into their bodies because of bad writing)
Meaning that the eldrazi would likely just roflstomp the phyrexians and call it a day.

xmage is superior to cockatrice btw. It's got rules enforcement. It's very much like free mtgo

He was playing on a budget but it was so painful to watch.

Also, on the topic of grixis: I did a few games of Skred Red V.S. Grixis control just to test the matchup and I didn't really realize how many "must counter" spells I have in Skred from Grixis' perspective. Specifically Relic of Progenitus and Anger of the Gods.

To me the most satisfying thing is killing someone with the rack. Seeing the light drain from their eyes as I have them in complete resource denial.

I'm reasonably certain Twan was being sarcastic.

NarejED Feel free to let him know, I'm not an expert on the pair as I said.

So, a friend of mine is taking a stab at Thrassios + Vial Smasher but he wants to do the turns version, he's looking to make it competitive as possible but some pricy staples may be out of reach, feel free to suggest anything.
This pair and combo is a little out of my wheelhouse so anyone with some experience plz halp.

Setting a life total is loss of life/gain life as per the comprehensive rules. (loss/gain depends on the direction of the set)
118.5 If an effect sets a players life total to a specific number, the player gains or loses the necessary amount of life to end up with the new total.

I'd say more than T3 personally just because I've actually seen it in action.

sonnet666 Contamination packages usually involve some number of Reassembling Skeletons. Nantuko Husk in conjunction with Sorin Markov can easily read "kill target player" since you can just sac the skeleton a few times for lethal damage easily.
Contamination would be the best/easiest way for a mono B deck to hate out other decks. It seems a logical direction to take it since we can't really ramp into sorin TOO fast, there are options of course but BBB is a lot of color to come up with. I suppose T2 sorin isn't outside the realm of possibility but eh.
Also, keeping in mind that setting someones life total to 10, while not outright winning the game can put a cramp on someone looking to win via ad naus/necropotence.
I'm not saying sorin is bannable but he certainly isn't garbage is the only point I was trying to make.
I'm aware cmc restriction is meant as a loose guideline but SOOOO many cEDH players take it as a solid unbreakable rule. It happens quite a lot and It's a little frustrating.

My only point of contention is the avg cmc. There are some (rare) exapmples of decks that break the cmc restriction just based on reanimator/etc. I've always had this issue with cEDH people saying that cmc is a hard and fast, unbreakable, rule.
A quick and dirty example is Phyrexian Devourer and Triskelion for the NOoze combo. Both are 6 cmc and will bump your curve higher than they should since you are never casting them, simply using them in your grave.

Or just a 10/10 thing and just gib someone that way
Food for Contam > Contam > Husk > Sorin set 10 > Die > repeat previous 2 steps.

Sorin Markov is stronger than I think you all are considering.
We actually did a planeswalker commander at my LGS and he just ran roughshod over the field.
Set to 10 then Exsanguinate for 10 gg.

If there was any doubt about Sram Cheerios being a real deck check saffronolive's YouTube videos for much abrew.
Only losses were due to bad luck and removal.dec
February 13, 2017 10:14 a.m.
I think Sorin Markov could probably be way too powerful.
Set to 10 from the command zone repeatedly is pretty rough to deal with.
February 12, 2017 8:20 p.m.
I mean, to determine what to cut you've got to consider which is better, once that's established you can make the clear choice.
Opinions were given as to which was better because that's just step 1 in the cutting process.
The problem is people brought budget and sentiment into the discussion which isn't helpful. Op is obviously not on a budget since he's CUTTING one and Op is obviously not very attached. You can't make decisions on power level based on sentiment/cost

One point of contention. Edh isn't a casual format. Edh is a social format.
The difference is that you sit down and discuss what types of things you play before playing then try to work it out. That's social. Because casual means different things to different people just like fun
Also, I know some people with casual decks that involve 4 lotus and 4 of every Mox then paradoxical outcome and Tendrils. It's not legal in any format so it's casual.
That doesn't mean it doesn't win on T1 nearly 100% of the time.
Point is this: you should talk about deck choices with your toxic player. He's likely a super spike and wants to win because that's what he finds fun. If you aren't playing in a sanctioned event just ask him to conform to your level of play or you won't play with him as a group. Simple as that.
