Hi WarSpaniel! I will update the description to be more clear about CFE creatures. So, here you have Eternal Scourge, Misthollow Griffin and Squee, the Immortal, which are the CFE (Cast from Exile) creatures.

Any of these creatures goes infinity with Food Chain, example: here you have a little description of the combo. So you create infinite colored mana that can be used only to cast creatures (it's a restriction of Food Chain).

Maelstrom Wanderer itself is not an engine for infinite mana, it's an outlet that can be used once you have obtained infinite mana to search for one of the combos. You can cast it using the mana you generated, cascade twice, and then exile it to Food Chain and re-cast it.

The problem with Maelstrom Wanderer in a cEDH environment is its CMC, as 8 mana is not reasonable. If you are interested in seeing other commanders used with Food Chain you could search for Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath, or others UGx commander.

However, the true cEDH Food Chain Commander is The First Sliver, which have access to all five colours and is able to combo in the early turns. Others, such mine, are more midrange decks, which I like more :)

Yeah, I mean, cascade is sort of a tutor. You decide wether to cast the spell or not, so you can cast any spell in the deck in the order you want. Sadly, tutors in RUG are not that good, but I like the stax/hate package I can run here. That's not optimal in a pure cEDH meta, but it does a good job in high-level metas.

I think Ballista wouldn't fit here. It's a wasted cascade, and even with infine mana I would need a tutor for it.

P.s. I am thinking about removing Temur Sabertooth for Windfall. I like Curio more than Sabertooth :)

Thanks for your suggestion! But I didn't understand what you meant by mana outlet. Anyway, even without any CFE creature, Food Chain is ridicolous with Malestrom Wanderer, since it allows to cast it multiple times in the same turn. At the moment, the deck is really focused on it, most of the wins happens with Food Chain.

As regards Cloudstone Curio, I agree with you, it's redundant. I will consider removing either it or Temur Sabertooth.

Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy is a nice suggestion, I will find a spot to try it. Although casting Maelstrom Wanderer is certainly good, it's not the aim of this deck, as MW is mainly used to dig for combos.
