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.

Hi there fellow creative deckbuilder. I really liked the ETB stealing and sacrifice outlets in your Yasova deck. I had fun with a stealing subtheme in my Deceiver of Form deck with Beguiler of Wills, Gilt-Leaf Archdruid, Lord of the Void, Keiga, the Tide Star, and Insurrection, though I'm still swapping cards around. You might be interested in it since it's a unique deck that most people haven't seen before, so do check it out and share any thoughts!

I think your deck needs Elvish Piper and Champion of Rhonas to cheat in those really expensive cards like Tidespout Tyrant so you can cast a spell after it comes in play.

Keiga, the Tide Star goes really good with Rite of Replication. Another cool combo with Keiga, the Tide Star is having it in the graveyard and Feldon of the Third Path in play. It gets better with Seedborn Muse allowing you to do it every turn.

You got Alot of really big spells I think you should consider more cheating of mana cost stuff like Quicksilver Amulet, Dragon Arch, Selvala's Stampede, Lure of Prey, Believe, and Hunting Grounds these are good for cheating of mana cost. Now for stealing of stuff. You need Zealous Conscripts and Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker combo because some of your tutors that get more then 1 creature. I'd throw in Splinter Twin too that works with Alot of things like Zealous Conscripts, Keiga, the Tide Star, Omnath, Locust of Rage and so on.

So Insurrection is a great way to win the game out of nowhere but it also doubles as removal giving you have the ways to do that. I really like Demonmail Hauberk and Grafted Wargear. But some times its good to be able to instantly sad Your Own stuff in response to someone else. Phyrexian Altar or Food Chain is good for that.

Molten Primordial, can be another good Insurrection if you have Rite of Replication too.

Bringer of the Black Dawn is a good one to cheat in.

Nice. Don't forget about Dread, and Vengeful Pharaoh, and Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts, and Aurification they are all like No Mercy

I think Kaervek the Merciless would be a solid choice.

@RazortoothMtg can we get a link to your deck when you have decided on a CMDR

All good I like this one cause it's an easy one haha so I'm posting all possible cards.

February 20, 2018 12:53 p.m.

Oh hey sorry @Spirit_Logan I've just been going off I have not been reading just posting

February 20, 2018 12:47 p.m.

Undead Alchemist and Fleet Swallower is cool. Darien, King of Kjeldor and Soul Warden is cool too. But if I had to stay in the Rakdos colors Master of Cruelties and Nether Traitor

I have a vision that seems pretty good I don't know your budget but here goes. You commander is gonna be unblocked 90 percent of the time. Rather then making him unblockable make him get blocked. Use him as a creature nuke. Grafted Exoskeleton, they will have to block or they will die to infect. I would run some extra turn stuff. Expropriate and Time Stretch. So you wait for your opponents to tap at least one of thier creatures to make your move. Then boom, CMDR attacks deals lots of damage and then you cast a spell to take an extra turn then boom more CMDR damage take an extra turn again. You get the point.

A card I would suggest. Fatestitcher, this is gonna be great you'll be able to untap you CMDR giving him hexproof back or tapping a creature to make him unblockable or untapping a creature an opponent controls suddenly making your CMDR able to be blocked and making him a nuke because he is equipped with Basilisk Collar.

So there's some really good resources out there and this site is one of the few. There's an app I'm using to help find cards I want it is called mtg fimilar it's only for Android and it's amazing. Download that app it will help tons. Also go to that site should help tons too.

Some random cards that might be good with your CMDR .

Kukemssa Pirates he will steal shit because your CMDR has to be blocked.

Infiltration Lens you'll draw so many cards.

Tideforce Elemental, like I said before, you might find it more useful to untap your opponents creatures, to take then out

Aboshan, Cephalid Emperor, this guy is great defense and other utility

Arbiter of the Ideal, with all the tap and untap stuff this is an easy include.

I'll have more for you another time just tag me.

That's a very nitch and it's just one example I know. But Dauthi Embrace has a weakness for it is a permanent and can be easily removed. And Alot of people do know about Dauthi Embrace but mostly no one knows about Spirit en-Dal and that card is harder to deal with unless you're up against a few wheel effects.

Basically yes all the other cards you mentioned are great cards but the biggest point I was making was. It's really hard to remove. Everyone has enchantment and artifact removal. But not everyone has a way to remove a card from your hand. Additionally rogues passage is 5 mana to do

Spirit en-Dal in a Saskia the Unyielding deck seems perfect.

I mean it's good in alot of builds this card with Serra Avatar or Malignus or Realm Seekers all seem really good

But of course wheels happen alot in CMDR but if that's not a thing in the game you're playing this card is great.

One of the worst things you can do that ruins the fun of CMDR is MLD (mass land destruction) the second worst is MHD (mass hand disruption) hints the reason Leovold got banned. So there is this card I have been testing and I really really like it. It's called. Spirit en-Dal, it's forecast ability is unstoppable because of MHD being looked down upon in CMDR. The card is like Constant Mist you just keep using it and it's really hard to deal with. Just my thoughts and I wanted to share this card with you guys. It's flying way under the radar. I think it's worth checking out and trying out
