Been playing magic since 2009 and been on this site since then-ish. I play almost exclusively cEDH and am happy to help with any advice on decklists when I have the time to!

Hey man been checking out your Rafiq lists, I love Rafiq but found how frustrating it was trying to play Voltron in my locals, I wanted to take it in a different direction, I see a bunch of different list types, are you still enjoying the Bant Hammer version or are you moving more into Stax?

Hey just posted my 32ND deck (need to get all the others posted/updated). It's a more casual deck called It's historical!!. But I think I can upgrade it a lot, just not sure how it's gonna play. Last white/blue commandee deck I had was led by Hanna, and it wasn't very fun for me to pilot, even after revisions. Hoping this one will be (this is my least favorite color combination to play in limited games - but have won with w/v fliers before, but got jesiki fliers already and don't want same exact theme in two decks).

Thanks for the trade. I placed 2 of the cards into bant enchantress deck, along with Omniscience I picked up in another trade. With two "enchantress" draw cards in play. I hit omniscience with a Genesis Storm (commander cast count 2). With Bant Charm and Arcane Denial in my hand to stop my opponents attempts to blow it up and rift my board. Drawing 2 when I cast any enchantment, I then built my board up until I had lethal unblockables on the field. Two opponents scooped. Last opponent cast Reins of Power , so didn't win that turn. On his turn, He cast Niv miz and cast a wheel, I rifted his niv miz, he counters my rift, so I Capsize his niv miz. He then scooped as he couldn't kill me, or stop me from killing him.

adding rocks and the wipe makes a lot of sense actually. Can you add some stuff that draws you cards whenever you cast an artifact spell? And other stuff like sai, padeem, and Ethersworn canonist. Imo danitha and the exalted dude are too low impact for edh and should be cut for stuff that ramps or draws you cards.

I am too weirdtimes2004. Ill have to play around with what to cut for it, as i meant to put it in the maybe board and am at 105. Manifold insights, a counterspell, and hushwing will likely go. Still deciding on the last 2 cuts.

It would need force of will to keep it in check. That’s why legacy can get away with the broken cards and modern can’t handle them. Misstep is great but not enough on its own. Also, everyone running 4 missteps would be an extremely stale deckbuilding restriction.

Awesome Maggot_brainz! Please let me know how that package does. I've always liked it on paper but honestly didn't test it enough and had to make some cuts. I'm definitely interested in re-adding it in as its almost impossible to lose with it online barring some stuff like zur->grasp of fate or a chord of calling for gilded drake, etc.

sweet list man! I like the voltron theme with the swords, how about adding in more equipment? Fliers with flash will get you there half of the time with some decent buffs. Otherwise, I saw a list that did pretty well here. Overall, your list looks like a ton of fun and a creative take on UW :)

Hey! Always happy to find another rafiq enthusiast! In my expereince, voltron creates a 3v1 environment against casual lists and is too slow for cEDH. The flash rector list is pretty sweet, though i'll say its pretty experimental atm and hasn't been played beyond several dozen goldfishes. Stax versions have been slow and durdley, its hard to get there without a general like derevi when stax boardstates are easily answered by a patient cyclonic rift or a toxic deluge. The Bant hammer has been a very solid deck in a cEDH meta, I can usually pull at least 25% wins in a cEDH pod. Cold-Eyed Selkie is a helluv a card and very underrated in terms of raw draw power.

Anyways, if you ever have any questions I'm an open book! Thanks for checking out those lists, theres several more private ones that were failed experiments or deleted. It was a bit of an obsession at a point in my life.

<3 Maggot_brainz thanks for the kind words, fight on with our ninja way. Let me know how it goes for whoever pilots it! The hatebear package can be tweaked for the appropriate meta :)

As someone whos casted a lot of thoughtseizes in my day, I will respectfully disagree with that WizardOfTheNorthernCoast. Hatebear decks really want to be dropping a t1 Aether Vial for tempo and speed their threats out. While going t1 thoughtseize into t2 thalia/hate bear sounds like a good plan in theory, in practice it doesnt do enough to establish a clock against combo. From the other side of things, combo decks are extremely resilient. This is why decks like mardu pyromancer, which played 6-8 thoughtseize effects mb, have fallen out of favor in the meta game. Jund can do it because it has big creatures like goyf to establish a clock in addition to lots of 2 for 1s like liliana of the veil. Thalia isn’t a powerful enough threat to buy enough time to seize a win when you are playing mostly 2 and 3 power creatures for fair mana costs.

TL:DR: playing thoughtseize in a hatebear deck is a trap that combo/control players dont really care about

February 5, 2019 11:30 a.m.

I dont think you want to run thoughtseizes in a hate bear deck. You naturally have a slow clock and paying 2 for them through thalia seems like a losing strategy. Just playing thought knot seer checks all the boxes you want.

The link didn't work. Sorry about the double post!

I'd be interested in a version that runs simian spirit guides to power out t1 thalias and cat jesuses. Theres a huge difference between a t1 vs t2 thalia. I think thalia stompy was a hot thing for a min a few months back in some of the mtgo challenges.

EDIT: found the decklist I was talking aboutthalia eldrazi stompy
