Voltron3030 Deckling

I enjoy the casual-competitive nature of Commander and the wide variety of cards one encounters. Plus, the home setting at either my house or a friend's is more conducive to beer drinking, which doesn't make me better at Magic, but it sure makes me enjoy myself.

Said on Olivia...

#1

Bloodchief Ascension is a super vampirey enchantment that I think would go well here, especially if you're trying to stay away from Exquisite Blood. I run Metallic Mimic in my Olivia deck to get a jump on the +1/+1 counters, but I honestly don't know if it's worth taking a slot from one of you're other nice cards here. Another vampire I have fun with, though he's not necessarily amazing, is Havengul Vampire. If he can keep ahead of your opponents' blockers, he can get out of hand and make opponents panic. But you're Olivia deck is much fancier than mine so again, I don't think he needs serious consideration, but he is fun.

+1 for throwing a mean vampire party though.

Cliffhaven Vampire also goes infinite with Exquisite Blood. I've gotten a few turn 4 or 5 wins with those two. I also think Boon Reflection and Alhammarret's Archive would both be good fits for this deck as they send your life total to triple digits and squash your opponents' hopes of coming back.

Said on Yasova has her ......

#3

I used to run a Surrak Dragonclaw deck and Yasova was a stand out card in that deck. I liked using her with Beastmaster Ascension. If you can get it triggered, she can steal much bigger things. The ascension buffs that creature for hitting it's owner too.

Said on Daretti & his ......

#4

That's a nasty decklist for sure. If you like combo-ing, you might consider Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient. If you run it with The Chain Veil, you can get three uses of Daretti a turn, even more if you can throw Voltaic Key and Clock of Omens into the mix. There's lots of other fun things to do with Kurkesh too.

Definitely would not be a bad inclusion. Hopefully I get one in the pre release.

Said on Lazav, Taken...

#6

Consuming Aberration gets huge in multi-player. Nighthowler and Bonehoard also work great on Lazav, especially multi-player. The best thing about him is that his name doesn't change when he changes so it still counts as commander damage even when he hits as an Ulamog or whatever. If mill-buff is something you like, there is also Trepanation Blade but I'm not as in love with that one myself.

Said on Zurgo, Facecrusher...

#7

Nice deck. Gratuitous Violence is in no way necessary for your deck but I find it very fun in beat down decks. If you're deck is drawing too much hate from coming out too fast and mean, there's Norn's Annex and Crawlspace. I also like Silent Arbiter but he doesn't mesh well with Assault Suit, and I would definitely keep the deck centered around getting specific equipment.

I don't think you need any of my pillow fort suggestions, though. It looks like you're coming out swinging so putting mana into protecting yourself is mana that could have been used buffing Zurgo.

A finely built Zurgo deck.

Said on Hydra wants to ......

#8

I've seen red green Hydra decks before but not with the commander you've chosen (I've mostly encountered Xenagos, God of Revels and Mina and Denn, Wildborn with hydras). I think it is a brilliant choice though. I must say it's a nice looking deck. I can't think of many suggestions other than things that make even more mana like Selvala, Heart of the Wilds, maybe Zendikar Resurgent. One of my favorite hydras is Hydra Omnivore; have you considered getting a Blade of Selves to pop on the omnivore and devour the entire table in a few swings?

Lab maniac is a fun way to win. Consider him with Prime Speaker Zegana and Deadeye Navigator (deadeye also pairs with your commander extremely well). If price is no object, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur is amazing. You've got notion thief and he is great for maniac decks, especially if you add Forced Fruition. And you've got Jace's archivist too, which is one of my favorite cards ever probably.

Overall though, I think you need a more creature heavy build to get the best chances of pooping zombies with Sidisi. Try to find creatures that have similar effects as your other spells. For instance, I ran a bunch of the creatures that let you dig land when they enter. If I get land out, better odds of milling creatures later and getting a zombie. If I just end up milling a dig creature, it makes a zombie at least, unlike a Rampant Growth. Or, instead of Reanimate, use Hell's Caretaker (super good in Sidisi decks). Kami of the Crescent Moon would probably be a good substitute for Dictate of Kruphix. I remember at one point my old Sidisi deck had 55 creature spells. But that's just how I ran my Sidisi deck. I've seen others that are more combo heavy and need specific non-creature spells that look more like what you have here. Obviously find what works for you and what you have fun playing.

I'll pick through my collection and see what I have that is on this list and I'll let you know next time I see you.
