I've had a little confusion in regards to how would the following situation resolve:

1) I'm attacking with Teneb, the Harvester and another creature.

2) Teneb, the Harvester's attack goes through and reaches the player, but the other creature is blocked and dies during combat.

So my question is:

In this situation, is it possible to return the creature that died during combat with Teneb, the Harvester's ability?

Hi MagicalHacker!

This is an amazing deck, I'm really loving it so far.

What do you think of adding Riftsweeper or Pull from Eternity? It seems there's too much graveyard hate these days, so having one of these (or maybe even both) could be potentially game changing.

Also, if you had access to all EDH-legal cards regardless of their cost, would you have made any changes, apart from replacing some basics with dual-lands?

Thanks for the answers, precociousapprentice! I truly appreciate the effort you put into making this deck and maintaining insightful discussions.

I've got a few questions regarding the current list:

1) Sol Ring, since you've replaced some of the cards that could be substituted, what is the best candidate for it right now? Would it be Mind Stone or something else?

2) Can you elaborate on why you have included Twilight Prophet? Doesn't it go against the nature of the deck, where dropping such a big threat makes you a target? Also, since its effect is applied only while it's present on the battlefield, wouldn't it be very easy for the opponents to simply remove it immediately, making it gain almost no value?

It also shows cards to everybody before drawing them, revealing your strategy, which is crucial to winning with this deck.

3) What do you think of including Cruel Entertainment?

Just had a game with this deck with exactly the same build which has drastically increased my respect for it:

The entirety of the game I'd been struggling with mana and couldn't get any black (apart from Chromatic Lantern which got removed by a boardwipe as soon as I played it). I've basically played with only 4 mana total for around 12+ turns. None of my permanents had the chance to stick around long enough to do anything significant. I even Burning Wish'ed an Hour of Revelation at one point but it didn't do terribly much. One of the opponents got the monarch as well. The aforementioned opponent had ramped out of control, with lots of land and around 9 white creatures (angels/humans) of various strengths. He also had Shaman of Forgotten Ways out and was ready to activate it next turn. Since neither me nor anybody else had many (or any) creatures, he was 100% convinced he had won the game, as the other players were already starting to scoop. I was the only one to continue. I had some black, unplayable cards and a few fogs in my hand that had been stopping his advances, but nothing too meaningful. Then, the turn he is activating the shaman, I play Teferi's Protection , which, of course, saves me and puts him at 9 life. A little surprised, he ends the turn as he had somehow already managed to spend all his mana. Next, my turn comes, I activate Acidic Soil and win the game, as I still had around 32 life.

He was dumbfounded, but took the loss pretty well. This was one of the closest game I've ever had in magic, where winning with 4 lands and without black mana was actually possible versus an overwhelming opponent. This isn't my first win with this deck, but it's definitely the one I'll remember.

Returning to the discussion we've had regarding Sol Ring, since you've replaced some of the cards that could be substituted, what is the best candidate for it right now?

Great changes, by the way! It's amazing to see this deck becoming even more perfect as the time passes.
