Did a bit of Brainstorming last night

Potentially Temur Sabertooth might be good in my playgroup due to the amount of removal and ability to setup.

Rude Awakening + Temur Sabertooth + Eternal Witness + 11 mana == infinite mana and bounce/infinite ETB. Temur Sabertooth, plus any of my ETB or cast cards gives a lot of utility including extra draw, recurrence, removal, spot protection from removal.

I think this card is worth a shot with the amount of mana I have available most times. For the sake of theorycrafting we have to try it!! Who knows maybe if I wanted to go the jank route this would make Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger, Helix Pinnacle or Aetherflux Reservoir viable as a non-attack wincon. Testing needed,, wanted to vorinclex in my collection anyways.

For classic wincons,

For creatures, I feel like I could hold a sideboard of 15 fatties on me and swap them in and they would all feel equally viable. That said Kozilek, Butcher of Truth felt irreplaceable and thus is getting a perm mainboard. Prevents milling, draws cards, threat/wincon, resets my deck, nice with Life from the Loam.

Vorinclex like I've mentioned before accelerates the deck and give me more time. It's more of enabler than a combo piece itself. Potentially Defense of the Heart might work here too if I hadd him. It would also open up potentially a new archtype if I went with Aetherflux Reservoir + Temur Sabertooth.

As for the draw situation, we could build around it or just go with the classics.

Adding Guardian Project to the maybe board along with Beast Whisperer. They're not as "fast" as the other options, but guardian often times is a Harmonize or better and beast whisperer is tutorable draw!

Some classics are: Garruk, Primal Hunter which is a "5 mana draw spell", Shamanic Revelation is another Regal Force that works with tokens! Rishkar's Expertise is another garruk that has a ~70% chance to hit another spell. That percentile is potentially amazing due to the composition of the current deck.

On the fringe for: Zendikar Resurgent, vorinclex slowing down opponent's in that slot feels better as a mana doubler, and I could just play Guardian Project earlier if I was after the draw. This card feels like it's in a weird place. Might turn out to be just an expensive harmonize. Momentous Fall, I don't know how I feel about this yet. Generally it says, 4 mana sac a creature draw 2-6 cards. Feels like a card I would play when I'm ahead, not to get ahead. That said I could say the same for anything else that is not an etb draw, regal, or harmonize.

Next step I guess is to make a couple "Packages" and see how they fit the deck.

RNR_Gaming on Commander party?

So, I'm sure some of you have heard that theres going to be a casual commander event at scgcon and I'm assuming that the event is going to extend to most wpn stores. It's a casual event with factions and is suppose to have some sort of story component to go with it that's effected by in game choices.

Does anyone have any other info? Is this a team event? Just how casual is this suppose to be? - I'm assuming that part will be store dependent but are there going to be objectives? Are there prizes for doing certain things?

What type of deck should I play? (Would like opinions from the more casual minded - though keep in mind I'd still like to win or put up a good fight) My loving partner told me she is forbidding me from bringing my TNT 98% tier 0 deck (it's missing Timetwister and Imperial Seal - still it'd likely be a pub stomp so I've been mulling over playing Edric, Spymaster of Trest or Selvala, Explorer Returned both can get a tad degenerate if left alone but they both teeter in that tier 2.5 range depending on build; though I figure their benefits are for the most part symmetrical and the main challenge is breaking parity. Though I'm open to suggestions barring tribal I'd like to know as a casual which of those would tilt you less. Edric is a tempo turns build and selvala would be a twiddle build aimed at milling our opponents and looping Green Sun's Zenith I may include Aetherflux Reservoir because zapping people seems kinda casual but I'm not sure

I just want my promos but I don't want to ruin the gaming experience of players entering an event for the 1st time; especially if theres nothing up for grabs.

You could run some Threats still in line with your them:

Wurmcoil Engine

Kaldra Compleat

Karn, the Great Creator: I love this tool box card but it depends on how people feel about the 10 card sideboard, it isn't officially allowed exactly but cEDH may change that. you can fill the board (10 is generally the accepted number I have seen for the "side") with situationally useful artifacts.

The only other thing I would think of is maybe considering a bit more control like

Dovin's Veto

Render Silent

Counterflux

Swan Song

to give a bit more protection for your strats

Rakdos's Return is always funny but may or may not work here

Sevinne's Reclamation could give some recursion Academy Ruins and Trading Post Too

Aetherflux Reservoir and Time Sieve with Thopter Assembly if you want some combo wombo

Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast seems to fit the theme

I am not a fan of the wellsprings, they do fit the them somewhat but can seem dead at times.

I had a couple of others that were in mind but lost them, I will comment if I think of them

I'm surprised to see you're not running Tireless Provisioner or Aetherflux Reservoir. Provisioner is just bonkers with all the landfall triggers and Aetherflux because youre already running the bolas citadel+sensei's top combo so it gives you another wincon

Or were you not wanting to go with any typical combo stuff? Cause I noticed you arent running Dakmor Salvage either.

You miss some of the best and most onbvious inclusions here: Ghalta, Primal Hunger, The Great Henge, Dig Through Time and Treasure Cruise all reduce their own cost. You can cast them for cheap but still get a high cmc cascade trigger. Kodama of the East Tree is also bonkers in my Imoti, allowing you to put 25+ lands into play untapped in a single turn, that’s especially great with Nyxbloom Ancient or Zendikar Resurgent. Also if you get your hands on a copy of Palinchron or Great Whale, you should consider them. It’s a free cascade trigger or they even ramp with a mana doubler/tripler or lands like Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. Aetherflux Reservoir is a strong finisher, often giving 150+ life in a single turn. You could also easily reduce the amount of lands quite a bit if you include more ramp and card draw.

That should be enough for a first input

Hey thanks GreenHamma!

I tried this deck without any tutors except Rune-Scarred Demon and Razaketh, the Foulblooded, added some redundant pieces like Cruel Celebrant, and added more draw too. It still had a whiff rate I didn't like. So I'm shooting for a tuned 80%.

I did see Aetherflux Reservoir as a popular win condition. I've played it in other decks before so I thought I would try something different here. I think it fits in the same spot as Mortal Combat for me. What do you think about either of these? I kind of like having a free win card in the deck.

Carnival of Souls is too aggressive for me. I see how it is appealing but the downsides are costly.

Peer into the Abyss I had not even thought of here. It makes sense in the same way Ad Nauseam does but what's interesting is that 1/3 of the cards I would eventually discard at end of turn would be Shadowborn Apostles. So if there is a Immortal Servitude effect in hand that is bonkers! I might have to try this out to understand it better. Funny how I'm OK with this kind of half life risk but not Carnival of Souls. :D

I like the deck gave you an upvote. There are a couple questions I have...

  1. what level are you trying to be with this deck?

  2. what do you think about Aetherflux Reservoir, Carnival of Souls, Peer into the Abyss
