Longtime player (~20 years), short time user of TappedOut. I only play EDH and Limited Formats, but I follow all formats.

EDH is by far my favorite format, in a casual way. My playgroup does not like infinite combos, we play with a house rule of no more than 5 cycles of a demonstrated loop per turn. This changes up my deck-building priorities and in my opinion opens up a lot of interesting interactions that wouldn't be worth it in a world of 5 turn games.

I have 12 total EDH decks, which I am slowly uploading. I want to do a good job with each, explaining card choices in detail and putting some thought into the aesthetics of the page.

@Polupus yeah, I need you to pull Words of Wind off. I need it badly.

I made some updates and added an update thread. Metamorphic Alteration made the cut - awesome suggestion, many thanks!

@Polupus I missed an important one.... Words of Wind is a card I’ve always found intriguing. I have seen it to incredible effect in a Simic Tatyova, Benthic Druid deck which functionally turns extra Exploration effect land drops into a free mass bounce spell. I’ve brainstormed ways to try to make it effective in Kami and have struggled with that simply because we don’t have easy fodder to make the effect asymmetrical.

If you find otherwise - let me know! I’m very curious!

Hello @piratesthatpwn!

Thanks for your interest in the deck! Glad to hear that you’re enjoying it. Probably the easiest cut for Force is Foil, they occupy the same slot but force is easier to free cast. It isn’t unreasonable to run both, you may even consider just cutting Counterspell or Arcane Denial.

Mana Drain for sure cut Counterspell or Arcane Denial, just strict upgrade!

For Glen Elendra Archmage the cut is tougher, you could consider cutting Venser, Shaper Savant, or something utility wise like Shimmer Myr.

For Snapcaster I would either cut Archaeomancer orTorrential Gearhulk

@Polupus hey thanks for the interest in my deck! I love Kami although my brewing time has been spent elsewhere recently. I have made a few changes that I need to update the list on. By far my largest change has been adding Expropriate in that I pulled out of a different list.

I love all of your suggestions, and I also love how Kami can be built in so many ways and there are so many powerful cards! Metamorphic Alteration is an insane one - I love it and I’m going to find room to double up on Kami while also removing a commander. Pure beauty!

Kederekt Leviathan has always been on my short list. I tend to favor instant speed board wipes as they enable me to play draw go which is my preference. But honestly the card is so powerful it makes me want to break that rule whenever I consider him!

Nexus of Fate is 100% on my add list after it rotates out of standard. Just tailor made for this deck couldn’t agree more!

That last suggestion is a spicy one, wow! I dig it, I don’t know if I can find the cuts for it but I love finding out about awesome random combos like that so thanks for the suggestions!
