Plot twist: I saw this deck just the other day. I kinda dismissed it because I assumed I'd be of little help. Guess I'll take another look.

Just saw your comment on PBRush's Atraxa build. If you wouldn't mind taking a look over at mine I'd appreciate it. f.r.i.e.n.d.s *S4:E9*. Cheers!

Varolz, the Scar-Striped is not great here, since you don't want to be exiling your graveyard. Twilight Drover is really slow. Mortivore is really nothing extraordinary, since you're sacrificing tokens.

Okay so I have a brew fairly similar to yours, except a few key factors:

1) include more creature removal. Works like a charm against opponents' commanders. Bogardan Hellkite, Spitebellows, Flametongue Kavu, and Firemaw Kavu are all good inclusions. On a related note, Meteor Golem deals with enchantments!

2) not enough land destruction. But that's more of an opinion.

3) you really don't have a lot of ways to get creatures in your graveyard. Try Smuggler's Copter, Tormenting Voice, Wild Guess, Daretti, Scrap Savant, Cathartic Reunion, and finally, Anvil of Bogardan.

Lastly and most importantly, I named mine after food. If you read the description it makes sense. Take a look-

Guess it refuses to link properly but anyway that was a garbage prototype I made 3-ish years ago.

Oof, edit on my last comment. I do have a draw deck. It is not that deck. It's actually this version of Oreo Fluff.

Okay so first Arixmethes, Slumbering Isle is pretty slow. Yeah he's a land at first, but you have to cast 5 spells while he's a land (which means you can't enchant him w/ auras).

Kefnet the Mindful isn't great, but I guess he's not outstandingly bad.

Krosan Restorer is kinda good ramp but Estrid's got most of that covered and overall Bear Umbra would probably suit you better. Same goes for Ley Weaver.

Masumaro, First to Live, comparable to Kefnet, is going to be restricted by the number of cards in your hand, and that's a max of 7. While a 14/14 is undeniably huge, it will probably draw hate and be removed very before you can enchant it.

Nezahal, Primal Tide is really just not good. I mean he give you no max hand size and he is recursive, kinda, but I don't think that's powerful enough to justify 7 mana.

Overbeing of Myth is a weaker Masumaro.

Prime Speaker Zegana requires you to have another large creature.

Psychosis Crawler will get you hated out of the game immediately.

Tishana, Voice of Thunder will draw you MAYBE 3 cards when it enters. It's only slightly better than Kefnet.

You have a lot of instants and sorceries. Too many counterspells, when your enchantments could deal with any permanents that get played.

Corrupted Conscience really isn't great here. Neither is Control Magic. Put a few enchantments on the guy you're controlling, someone destroys the control magic, and suddenly you're 100% screwed.

Mind Unbound is slow and costly, the only place I could ever see it being played effectively is in an Atraxa, Praetors' Voice deck. Thought Reflection is only slightly better.

There are a lot of cards at the higher end of your mana curve that are either not worth the mana cost or laughably not worth the mana cost. Also your draw synergies would be better devoted to their own deck (see my take on that idea Oreo Fluff). While this is a unique and interesting take on Estrid, it's slow and requires a steady draw engine to work, which requires a shitload of mana to work, which requires Estrid always being out to work, which requires, in the end, some degree of incompetence on your opponents' part. It's a great deck when left to its own devices all game, but that's just not how commander works.

I respect that almost hipster-like contrarianism. I love brewing with underrated commanders too, and using weird unique synergies. Glad to see somebody shares my passion. Have a good day and happy brewing!

Counterpoint, itachi45 (love the name btw), in my meta whenever I play infect, I just get hated out of the game in seconds. All it does is turn the eyes of the whole table onto me. Blighted Agent would be insane when the game gets to 1-on-1 but I think other creatures would probably bend better.

^^^ more lands.

Also you don't have a lot of good aura targets. Ajani's Chosen is great as a token producer and gives you the option of going wide. Card: Cephalid Constable is totally insane. Cold-Eyed Selkie is also pretty insane. Eidolon of Countless Battles get gigantic very quickly. Invisible Stalker is hexproof and unblockable, and need I say more? Kor Spiritdancer is a great draw engine and also gets very large, very quickly. Rafiq of the Many is a legendary voltron target, literally and metaphorically.

You're also missing some great enchantments and synergies. Argothian Enchantress, Herald of the Pantheon, Kestia, the Cultivator, Sigil of the Empty Throne, Propaganda, Aether Tunnel, Aqueous Form, Banishing Light, Bear Umbra, Ethereal Armor, Grasp of Fate, Mirari's Wake, Rhystic Study, Song of the Dryads, Spirit Mantle,

This looks... super weak. Am I missing something? Your commander feels super out of place, and there are much better colors for the deck you're trying to run.

Now that you mention it all I think they would do is give you a bunch of Chainer activations anyway.

October 8, 2018 3:08 p.m.

Okay first of all, the only thing that runs through my head when I read your deck's name is If you love me let me gooooooooooo and that is not a bad thing.

Anyhow I've got a really similar brew and I think you could take a few cues from it. Have you considered making your commander Meren of Clan Nel Toth and putting Mazirek in the 99?


Okay, the Whole Death Thing? Minor Setback.

In case of Leyline of Sanctity, I propose running either Arcades, the Strategist as an alternate wincon or some good enchantment removal.

Okay so if you'd like me to go into more detail that's fine by me, but for now I'll just drop a link to my brew. It's like this one but a lot more optimal.

If you get Etrata, the Silencer in your grave a few times and keep reanimating it, you could hit your opponent 3 times pretty easily. You wouldn't need to worry as much about fishing it out of your deck.

October 7, 2018 1:34 a.m.

Okay so just going through my list here, I can split it into a couple lists: counter producers, counter enhancers, and counter synergies.

Counter producers give +1/+1 counters to things. Among them are Anafenza, the Foremost, Bloodtracker, Chasm Skulker, Daghatar the Adamant, Dragonscale General, Drana, Liberator of Malakir, Hangarback Walker, Heroes' Bane, Managorger Hydra, Mikaeus, the Lunarch, Prime Speaker Zegana, Toothy, Imaginary Friend Citadel Siege, Curse of Predation, Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants, Cathars' Crusade, Echoes of the Kin Tree, and finally, arguably the best of this group, Ajani, Mentor of Heroes.

Counter enhancers increase the counters placed on things: Gilder Bairn, Pir, Imaginative Rascal, Vorel of the Hull Clade, Winding Constrictor, Doubling Season, Hardened Scales, Primal Vigor, and Solidarity of Heroes.

Finally, counter synergies, such as Abzan Battle Priest, Armorcraft Judge, Battlefront Krushok, Cenn's Tactician, Fathom Mage, Zameck Guildmage, Hindervines, Inspiring Call, and Bred for the Hunt.

Boy oh boy do I hope that's enough to get ya started. There you go.

You are wrong! Every deck has a name! Wrong, I say!!

1) Jace, Memory Adept.

2) Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker.

3) find an adequate amount of removal.

4) any protection for your commander.

October 5, 2018 2:09 p.m.

Silly me, I saw Gilder Bairn and I was like... wait doesn't another card do that? So yeah don't mind that I'm just stupid it's fine.
