Maybe use Risen Reef and a decent number of elementals to continue the chain? If any combo pieces are elementals, Reef can be the glue that holds them all together.

Nature's Lore and Farseek could be Mana Crypt and Mox Diamond. Just sayin'.

Anyways, fun.

I'd definitely cut Temple, this deck seems too aggressive for it to be worthwhile. If you really want double-mana lands, try

Ancient Tomb if you have cash

Dwarven Ruins

Balduvian Trading Post(although it's really not a double mana land....)

Sandstone Needle

Other than that, maybe try going heavier into the Goblin theme. There are a lot of goblin token generators, and Goblin synergy is often better than straight token synergy.

Consider cutting Emrakul's Hatcher, Hanweir Garrison, Scampering Scorcher for things like Goblin Rabblemaster, Goblin Piledriver, and Goblin Trashmaster.

Additionally, lots of goblin synergy turns Shared Animosity into a win con. With Animosity or Marton, Breath of Fury becomes a straight win condition with enough tokens. Just slap it on your tokens and they'll get bigger with each swing.

Thanks guys! I now have enough fuel to do some brain bubbling.

(to be clear, I wasn't looking for anything in particular. Just stuff along the lines of reanimation)

October 22, 2020 10:33 a.m.

What good reanimation targets can I use? Also, any reanimation spells that you like for bonus points.

I'll be using Korvold as the commander.

I just need some... ideas to mull around in my head, so everything goes. Thanks in advance!

As someone who can't afford any one of the individual cards and therefore won't be buying the Lair, I have no qualms.

It's easy to have no qualms when it can't hurt you in any way.

I mean, my Xyris had ~$50 spent on it and it's currently about the scariest deck in my playgroup. However, it is a rather casual playgroup, so that might not be relevant. Best deck I see is half-finished Slivers.

Said on OVERplayed cards?...


MagicalHacker I'd run Mind Stone in any mono-color EDH deck as part of the initial pile of rocks(not in green of course). But in multicolor the cantrip clause really isn't worth it.

Optimator I don't know what other people have said, but Concentrate is just slow in EDH. There are better cards. Not bad, but there are a lot of things that I'd run over it.

October 21, 2020 9:56 a.m.

Oh! I missed the 'up to' clause. Not worth it.

Inquiry was mainly because it was 1 mana, which is pretty cheap.

Those were my thoughts on Memory. I've just been digging a little bit because the next cheapest wheels that I don't have are $3-5+, and I'm not excited about that pricetag.

October 20, 2020 5:04 p.m.

Thoughts on Burning Inquiry, Memory, Diminishing Returns as more budget-friendly wheels?

October 20, 2020 4:23 p.m.

Hmmm yes 4 $20+ cards for $60+ shipping. Obvious good product is obvious good product.

Decent value for anyone who doesn't have to pay $300 for shipping(minus extreme exaggeration), and it's especially good as it should reduce the price of the normal versions by a buck or two for a month or so.

It's sort of one of the first things cEDH players bring up when asked 'why is Wishclaw Talisman good'. Volatic Shenanigans are by far one of the best reasons to have Wishclaw, so any black-based artifact strat in EDH should automatically have Wishclaw. Especially because you're running Volatic anyways(there are so many good things to untap with it) and you'll also have sac outlets in all likelihood(it's black... in EDH).

TL;DR yes, it's a viable series of events and it is extremely powerful. It's also $2 for both cards.

October 20, 2020 4:10 p.m.

Problem is it's rarely worth it. It's cool, yes, and basically everyone wants it to be good. But it's the kind of effect where the difference between unplayable and a format breaking card is so small that there's no way to balance it with MtG mechanics.

At 5 mana it sucks. If you took off one mana at a time you'd see unplayable, unplayable, unplayable, unplayable, broken beyond belief.

October 16, 2020 11:25 p.m.

With both being theoretically , I'd say it's worth testing a list with both in it. Free interaction is at a premium in EDH.

October 15, 2020 10:24 a.m.

Oh shoot -- I didn't realize that clause was there. This deck doesn't work then.

Back to the drawing board.

October 15, 2020 10:23 a.m.

Said on What would you …...


After getting some tips here and from r/CompetitiveEDH, I think I'll mostly be proxying Consultation Kess and some Korvold variant and get some practice before coming back to this.

I think it's reasonable that I can shift directions and turn the list into some other 5-color commander, or I can brew some more in the future once I have cEDH experience.

October 14, 2020 6:08 p.m.

Well.... I'd say Anger of the Gods or Sweltering Suns..... but that doesn't quite work.

October 14, 2020 5:06 p.m.

Said on What would you …...


Well, I do need more experience. Might as well mess around a bit.

I'd still like to be able to use this gameplan, especially as I ordered a handful of cards for it, but most of the cards are at least low-end staples like Talismans and Swords/Path, so I'm not too worried if I end up scrapping it. I just liked Rocky and Bullwinkle.

October 14, 2020 4:38 p.m.

Well, if you have a Swamp it's 100% better. Without a swamp it's somehow worse.

October 14, 2020 4:31 p.m.

Said on What would you …...


I know, and I don't think the deck is all-out jank -- it's just not one of the accepted t1 decks. I thought I'd rather go with a silly theme than take some netdeck and play with it.
