I like to make fairly cheap decks that can still fare well against more expensive decks. My commander decks tend to work very well, and I like to make decks using cards that most people don't consider.

Also sorry for not responding IvyLeaguerCU I keep pressing "preview" but forgetting to send lol, I agree Walking Ballista is definitely on theme, but yes it is kind of a "win-more" card since by the time you can use it you already have a pretty good infinite combo, I will say though that I have been thinking of trying to improve the deck's pre-combo control, and the card could also work very well in that place, so I'll heavily think about it! Another great thing that the card does is let me slowly build up counters on Kraj, then for 2 mana I have the ability to drain them all and take out a big creature.

Thanks for the idea! I have also been thinking of making a more casual-friendly version of the deck, and the card would be a great addition there!

izzet4lyf That's a hilarious idea, I won't put it into this deck because it's meant to be fairly competitive for a budget, but I really want to put that kind of combo in another deck. Perhaps in a Momir Vig, Simic Visionary deck or a Atraxa, Praetors' Voice deck I could throw Kraj + those cards in there for a funny combo

That's a great idea UnleashedHavok, thanks! I've noticed that over time a lot of the cards in this deck have increased in price, so I'll just replace some of those

beets First of all, thanks for the support! I love that people like my take on group hug! As for the maybeboard, most of it isn't really that necessary for the deck (I don't even have the maybeboard), just options that people have suggested that ended up not making the cut either for being too expensive or not impactful enough.

I think cards like that could be thought of more like a group slug card rather than a group hug card, so I'm not necessarily sure if it fits in the deck for the group hug aspect. I will say however, that it would still introduce some interesting politics into the game and it could actually be an interesting option if you were low on resources and you needed somebody to pick a side with early game.

My suggestion is to put it in and see how it goes! I may have been the creator of the deck but I am by no means the be-all end-all decision maker on cards. It's a really interesting decision and I'd like to hear how it works - It would definitely make the game a lot more interesting since people know even less about what is going to happen.

If you're ever interested in the... darker side of politics, check out my other deck Your Best Evil Friend - EDH Tempting Deals. It's based on giving people just a little bit of resources in exchange for having them take damage. It's got a lot of really fun politics cards like Illicit Auction and Puppet's Verdict, but it still has just enough control options to make it viable as a standalone deck in a 1v1 situation. It's probably my other favourite deck aside from Phelddagrif and I just love the idea of grixis politics

Thanks chiri and catafalcoman! I hope you both enjoy the deck! I've found that the politics is a bit of a balancing act - You need to know when to give people things (for example with Fevered Visions) and when to take things away (for example with Cruel Ultimatum). If you balance well, the deck is extremely fun and rewarding to play.

Anyways, have fun! And if you do end up playing the deck, let me know how it goes. Thanks!
