Hey I really appreciate the suggestions on my Aminatou deck, if you want to help with the other deck that would be awesome. That idea you gave sounds like it would make a really fun deck.

Thanks, impropriety, this makes things a lot easier.

I made my first Modern deck a while back. It was a -1/-1 counters deck. Someone pointed out that Necrotic Ooze was the way to go for a more consistent combo, and he was right. I have a playable deck now. Thing is, how do I make it more consistent and fast?

Thanks, hope for some suggestions.

My IQ increased by 3000 points after seeing this.

Came here from your youtube channel, that Merciless Eviction was brutal. Just wanted to see what in God's name that pile of cards was meant to do.

So... this is coming from a hardcore blue mage who tries to abuse cards as much as possible.
I think you could have a pretty sweet chain reaction thing going on here. Ur-Dragon lets you get out permanents whenever a Dragon attacks, so maybe you could go for a weird aggro-y, storm-y, combo-y thing. I don't know. Just look at these cards and this game plan, tell me what you think.
The game plan would be to durdle for the early game, play dragons mid game, then late game, come out of nowhere with a lethal-damage chain reaction: Play permanents that draw based on you attacking, and creatures that give mana based on attacking. You would proceed to attack, get draw triggers from things like Edric, Spymaster of Trest, mana triggers from things like Savage Ventmaw, and an Ur-Dragon trigger. Play a permanent that gives extra combat phases, activate it. Repeat from the part where you attack. This list would inevitably have a few ways to go infinite (Savage Ventmaw + Aggravated Assault = good game), but that wouldn't happen a lot. Mainly you would just be attacking 3 times a turn for lethal damage from your commander alone.
I don't know your budget or playstyle, but those are my thoughts. I'd love to hear what you think!

Hi. I made a Ramos storm list for Competitive EDH, and it's a blast to pilot.
My friends just call it "Solitaire," because if you don't get screwed on draws, you end up playing by yourself on turn 2/3. Always fun. The purpose of the deck is to play Ad Nauseam as quickly as possible, draw 15 cards, storm off, and win.
Side note: If you think I should make a primer, please let me know.
Hope you check it out. Thanks.

You madlad, you actually went and did it. I'm u/UndyneUsesReddit, by the way, creator of the original post on r/cedh. I'll take this and tune it as much as possible. Thanks for the base deck. Once it's done, I'll link you to the deck in a reply on the Reddit post.

Hey, saw your comment on my profile. No problem for helping with the Aminatou build, a Scryfall search and 15 minutes can go a long way. What is this other deck you want suggestions for?

Hey, here's an idea. I don't mean to completely change your idea, and you don't have to do this if you don't want to, but here it is:
- Oona, Queen of the Fae in the command zone
- 45x Shadowborn Apostle
- 45x Swamp
- Magus of the Coffers
- Umbral Mantle
- razaketh, the foulblooded
Play Apostles until you get 8 of them. Sac 6 for Razaketh. Sac the other 2 for Magus of the Coffers and Umbral Mantle. Get infinite black mana, which you use to play Oona and use her ability to mill everyone out.
Also, in preview, razaketh's card link doesn't work, because it's showing up as being lowercase. He's an 8 mana demon that lets you sacrifice a creature and pay 2 life to tutor for a card and put it in your hand,

Hey 4doublexx, thanks for the feedback. Yes, the win condition is tazing people with Aetherflux Reservoir. As far as the cards you suggested, here's your irony for the day: Epic Experiment might be pretty good (41 instants/sorceries), and Empty the Warrens and Grapeshot aren't really necessary. Epic Experiment will probably hit 3 free spells for x=5, which is a fantastic mana sink if you ever activate Ramos. I was already thinking about cutting Final Fortune, and the experiment is probably taking its place. As for the silly fun cards, hit me the heckin' frick up. I'm all for it.

So the think that jumps out at me is there's 1 thing that can draw cards. This is an issue. A commander deck usually needs about 7-17 things that can draw cards, or you'll run out of hand and be left hoping to topdeck whatever you need at the moment. There are plenty of cards that work overtime, fitting the +1/+1 counter theme and drawing cards at the same time: - Fathom Mage - Bred for the Hunt - Armorcraft Judge - Bloodtracker - Implement of Ferocity - Inspiring Call - Lorescale Coatl, if you want to lean further into this whole draw thing - Mindless Automaton - Novijen Sages - Prime Speaker Zegana - Toothy, Imaginary Friend
These are all suggestions. I don't know what your budget or meta is. Good luck with the deck.

Hi. Looks like I posted after you on Commander Deck Help. The thought police will get me if I don't post card recommendations on your deck.
- I'm not sure what Teferi, Temporal Archmage is doing here. Maybe it has some hidden purpose or broken combo I just don't see, but if that's not the case, I would cut that for Proteus Staff.
Scrolling through the comments, it seems like you want to avoid Felidar Guardian. I think this deck would make a great Eldrazi- Hey, wait, hear me out. Aminatou gives topdeck control. She can also blink things. Her ultimate is garbage. All in all, not bad. I think you could take a nice little polymorph route on this. I like free Eldrazi. You should too. Just look through these cards, and tell me what you think.
- Mass Polymorph
- Proteus Staff
- Riptide Shapeshifter
- Synthetic Destiny
- Kozilek, Butcher of Truth
- Emrakul, the Promised End
- Void Winnower
- It That Betrays
- Blightsteel Colossus
- Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger
- Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre
...that would be your endgame. For the early and midgame:
- Noxious Gearhulk
- Meddling Mage, depending on your meta
- Champion of Wits
- Riverwise Augur
- Sawtooth Loon
- Bone Shredder
- Big Game Hunter
- Ravenous Chupacabra
- Lyev Skyknight
So, your gameplan would be to play Aminatou on T3, play creatures that kill things/draw cards when they enter, blink them with Aminatou repeatedly to kill opponent's things, draw into counterspells, and generally destroy their will to live. Once you have a comfortable lock, +1 Aminatou and put an eldrazi titan on top, polymorph a draw creature into it.

Hey. I've been a casual commander player for a while now (5 years? idk) and got into competitive EDH a few months ago. My first build for the format is a Ramos storm list that I have a lot of fun with. It's tough to complain about being able to play by yourself. Here's the list:

Hey, I was reading the deck archetype and tier descriptions and in none of them was storm ever mentioned. Thought this was weird, because there are 5 storm decks in tiers 1 and 1.5, with 3 of them in tier 1. I have a Ramos list, but since no description for what tier a storm deck would be placed in is given, I've got no idea where it's placed. Basically, I'm just asking if you could include storm in your tier descriptions and deck archetype descriptions. If you want to take a look at the Ramos list, here it is:
