Black is my favorite color to play and edh is my favorite format. I tend to play with group of friends who play mostly modern, standard, and edh. Also other large multiplayer games. Ive been playing mtg since march 2014. My favorite set is zendikar and worldwake. I love the deck building and creativity part of magic more the the foils, full arts, and promo cards that get people excited. I have never been to a prerelease, promo, fnm, or tournament. I spend lots of time researching cards and trying to think of an interesting deck that no one has seen before, but thats impossible lol.

Hey!was really happy with your insight for the slivers idea, if you have the free time would you be willing to look at my shirei deck please? I have cards I don't own foiled in that list.

Yea it's a sweet combo if you add Lotus Cobra you end up with a bunch of 2/2 elementals

Well yes it does. You could also exchange this combo with an almost infinite damage combo. By switching out Amulet of Vigor with Ashnod's Altar

I would use edh rec and search Omnath, Locus of Rage to get a bunch of landfall ideas. And search Azusa lost but seeking too. But there's a card called Fastbond you might like. There is a combo with Zendikar's Roil + Amulet of Vigor + Perilous Forays, this is a perfect combo for putting all your lands into play. There's also so many other ways to get all your lands out using Zendikar's Roil and Perilous Forays

Zendikar's Roil + Perilous Forays + Amulet of Vigor this gets all your basic lands. Or you could just run New Frontiers

Ok here's another good suggestion. I had a player who played modern join CMDR in my metta and I noticed these players like instants and reactive stuff. So maybe Zurgo Helmsmasher that was his first cause you can run lots of instants and removals

Sounds like to me you want to build a Kaalia of the Vast deck

Said on "My" Top 10 ......


Ok so Josh and Jimmy from the command zone made an episode of top 10 black and top 10 green very recently. Here's the link to the episode, click here. I want to make a similar list with a twist, using only cards with cmc 6 or greater to make this list. (Excluding cards with X in it's cost, "X" doesn't count here). If this is successful I will do every mono color for cards 6 cmc or greater. Btw I'm not bashing the command zone at all I'm a huge fan. (This list will be budget as well) no cards over 20$ US dollars... maybe

So here goes "my" top 10 mono black edh cards with total cmc 6 or greater. With 1 being the best.

All the rest after the are honorable mentions

Every card mentioned above in the top ten are based off my gameplay exp in my kitchen table metta.

I want everyone's feed back on the order, and what cards you think should make the list, and cards I missed.

Also don't underestimate flying. Cards like Levitation and Wonder for evasion and Akroma's Memorial is another superb card for this.

Ok so here are a few suggestions. You take what you want from it

I dont think you need 40 lands. Go with 38 lands. Your CMDR will snag you a few good rocks and sol rings. Which brings me to my next suggestion. Find more cards like Fatestitcher cause will all the artifacts you'll be ramping with with Thada cards that un tap them are great here. So take a land out and put in Fatestitcher. Anther card I think is a bad fit is All Is Dust, this card reads screw everyone except the breya player or the bosh player. Stormtide Leviathan turns all lands into island in addition to thier other types. Auto include. There's a few more that do a similar thing. Can't think of them right now.

No ban because with other lands that do the same like Cabal Coffers and Gaea's Cradle, I don't see Serra's Sanctum getting banned. And since white is the worst ramp color (arguably red is worse) this land is important to its color. So go ahead invest, because this card will never get the hammer.
