Lol no worries or bubbles burst, was that a old post? I don't remember it but you are correct, you'd need something like Anointed Procession or Panharmonicon to make up for the 2 mana being lost each cycle, I see that after doing some math my bad.

Hey, i just wanted to point something out to you.

I saw your comment about Mycosynth Lattice + Mana Echoes combos with breya.Well, i hate to burst your bubble but it actually doesn't.

You're not netting any mana each time you do it because you're letting breya go to the command zone, making her cost 2 more each time. You actually have to pump 4 into her each time you recast her (4 of each color-doesn't matter if mycosynth lattice is out, but still)

If you do the math, I'm pretty sure that's right. Yes you're netting more mana due to (mana echoes) each time you recast breya because there will be a 'leftover' thopter token from your previous breya cast, but you also end up always having to recast her by paying an additional 4, 4 of which wasn't created by mana echoes. So, that wouldn't make it infinite.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I did the math really quick just now and that's what I came up with.

I think it could work, though Vial Smasher the Fierce is better when built around and in duel commander where the random targeting doesn't get you too much aggro. Ravos, Soultender is good, definitely better in a deck fielding lots of creatures. For partners in these colors I personally like Tymna the Weaver and Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder for an aggro build.

I think in R/W/B you are going to have a hard time being competitive anyway. Alesha, Who Smiles at Death and Kaalia of the Vast are both popular pubstompers but they are pretty easy to disrupt since they rely heavily on the commander attacking. I like Tariel, Reckoner of Souls and Queen Marchesa personally for angel tribal, goodstuff and politics. The best part about a deck built around a mardu commander other than kaalia and alesha is that you are largely ignored so you get to play how you want to play and sneak in a few wins along the way.

I thought Skullclamp was scary enough in EDH, oy. Now it joins the ranks of The Chain Veil and Rings of Brighthearth.

Forgot to mention Mana Echoes also combos with Skullclamp. Altar of the Brood would be good too.

Said on Lyzolda combo help...


KingMathoro thanks for the suggestions! I think the deck came out pretty good, I'll throw out there for any others making something similar Isochron Scepter+Paradox Engine and Skirge Familiar using a red ritual on the scepter was another combo I found. The deck plays like a Teferi, Temporal Archmage combo deck but trades counterspells for reanimation

I think I would go with a healthy amount of artifact ramp and try to get him out turn 2 or 3. Dramatic Reversal on Isochron Scepter would be my preferred infinite combo I think. Basically loot your deck for a Mindmoil, Arjun, the Shifting Flame or maybe Laboratory Maniac?

Hey, I love the idea behind the deck! Here's what I'd suggest;

Scrap Mastery, Trash for Treasure and Goblin Welder are awesome since you have a sac outlet at commander.

Also I really enjoy Rakdos, Lord of Riots in this kind of deck.

Best of luck!

Mmm just thought of Rings of Brighthearth+Basalt Monolith+Gemstone Array that would work too.

Said on Lyzolda combo help...


Hi, I'm trying to brew a deck around Lyzolda, the Blood Witch. It's going to be largely board wipes, ramp and big spells I never get to play like Repay in Kind etc. I chose Lyzolda, the Blood Witch mainly because she sacs herself for 2 damage and a card I know there has to be a combo for that to finish the game up. So far I'm thinking artifact ramp, Paradox Engine and Rakdos, Lord of Riots but I was wondering if anyone has any other ways to abuse her I haven't thought of, maybe something with skirk familiar? Anyways any help is appreciated, thanks!

Hey, the deck looks good but while I agree with the guy above me about it being nice to see the COPs there are some strictly upgraded versions. Like Story Circle or the ones that cycle Rune of Protection: White etc. Just wanted to throw that out there, you could also just use Pariah since your general meshes well with it, just my 2 cents!

Lol in my experience people find group hug and chaos decks the most annoying actually. I hate playing Norin the Wary for example with Confusion in the Ranks, Grip of Chaos, Possibility Storm etc because it makes it so difficult to interact or plan I just scoop and find another game. Decks that run a ton of mana doublers also suck because turns start to take 10 minutes or more almost immediately. That's my experience, if you really want to make them hate playing commander go chaos or ramp.

Undead Alchemist is great with Phenax, God of Deception too. Intruder Alarm can be fun also :)
