oh damn, i really do like the look of Bonehoard and it's funny you mention Umbral Mantle because I was thinking about how i have 3 copies of it sitting in my collection doing nothing, and realised just how potent it would be in here. Thanks for the suggestions, I think I might make some necessary changes seeing as I recently learnt the exact ruling for cumulitive upkeep rendering my Glacial Chasm more annoying for me than it is for my opponents.

Bonehoard works great as a target for enchanting or as equipment to put on an untapper. Umbral Mantle can also pump+untap. I also like Grisly Spectacle for thematic instant speed removal.

The Commander's Quarter had a on a budget Phenax deck. This is a good list for a casual group. Here are some cards that I want to highlight from his list:
- Creatures/cards that scale with size of graveyards: Wight of Precinct Six , Mortivore , Nighthowler , and Bonehoard .
- Duskmantle Guildmage - This was the original combo piece with Mindcrank. You have Syr Konrad, but it is good to have another combo piece.
- Thousand-Year Elixir - This card doubled in price early this year. You have a bunch of low-drop defenders; this enables you to mill them the same turn they enter the battlefield with Phenax out.
- Tree of Perdition - If you manage to get this early, you can have its toughness to be > 30. That's a lot of cards to be milled!

Probably Ghoultree . You may also want to consider Mikaeus, the Unhallowed with your Woodfall Primus due to the undying and persist triggers counteracting each other for infinite. There is also Bonehoard that is a living weapon that functions just like Nighthowler .

Just ideas.

Kogarashi on Ezuri and 0/0

4 months ago

One exception would be a new zombie token made by the Amass ability. The way the ability works, the 0/0 token is created, then the counters from Amass are placed on it, so Ezuri would see a 0/0 enter the battlefield. The only reason the zombie token isn't also put into the graveyard is because state-based actions are not checked during the resolution of an ability, so by the time Amass is done and SBAs are checked, the zombie token already has its counters.

Same with Living Weapon creatures (like the token made by Bonehoard ). The 0/0 enters the battlefield, then the equipment is attached to it, keeping it from dying due to SBAs.

You seem to be running two copies of Voltaic Key ... I don't think that's allowed in EDH.

If you're playing Mono-Blue good stuff, I highly suggest Mystic Remora as a source of early card advantage.

I also suggest running Counterbalance in conjunction with Sensei's Divining Top and Jace, the Mind Sculptor .

Preordain is good in conjunction with Ponder .

Windfall is good, like your Timetwister with Narset, Parter of Veils .

Clever Impersonator , Stunt Double and Phyrexian Metamorph are better than Clone . You should consider them.

If you've got the budget for Timetwister , Invoke Prejudice is pretty stupid good.

I think Cyclonic Rift is better than Nevinyrral's Disk .

Deserted Temple has REALLY good interactions with Thawing Glaciers . You should consider running it. Also, I think a basic Island is better than Halimar Depths .

In mono-blue, you might want to consider Back to Basics .

If you're running Academy Ruins , I suggest Mindslaver . It's a... good combo.

I think Blast Zone is better than Powder Keg .

I don't think you should run Bonehoard , because your general counters the first equip activation.

If you want to run Ancestral Vision , I suggest As Foretold . As Foretold also has the added benefit of being able to cast a counter spell for free on each opponent's turn.

It depends on how much you feel you need to hold up counter magic, but I think Stroke of Genius is better than Mind Spring , if only because you can cast it on an opponent's end step.

Strip Mine is useful as a 1-of effect to take out The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale or other obnoxious lands. I don't think you need the Wasteland as well; you may have more luck with just a basic Island , especially if you choose to run Back to Basics .

Mana Maze is good in mono-blue decks, as is Sapphire Medallion .

Consecrated Sphinx is good as a value blue card. The card advantage is just nuts.

Dig Through Time and Treasure Cruise are great for late-game card draw.

Good luck with deck building!

Spirits on Glissa, Scrap Trawler $50 EDH

Hi RobsJourney,

Glissa, the Traitor was my first Budget Commander League deck.

I primarily built it, without infinite combos, to participate in this league.

I really enjoy the First Strike + Deathtouch, it's an amazing combination.

It was originally a Modular build, around Birthing Pod , then it slowly transitioned into a primarily deck, now I'm trying to move toward more drawing to be able to ramp lands out to have more consistency with Mind Slaver .

Because of the restriction on budget Mtggoldfish.com at $49.58, so it evolves and changes as the prices of cards shift.

Currently, it's core strengths:

Control, sometimes I control the creatures (effectively) of all 3 opponents at the same time. When I get an Executioner's Capsule lock it can be pretty fun.

Recursion, it's good, gets the Artifacts recurring and utilized properly can prosper

Weaknesses:

No infinite combo, most of my other Budget Commander League decks have build in infinite combos (eg. Brago, King Eternal , Alesha, Who Smiles at Death ) or one shot kills with damage / commander damage ( Heartless Hidetsugu , Animar, Soul of Elements ).

I found ramping into the 10 mana required to recur the Mind Slaver was too slow (1 hour time limit on Budget league games), so instead of just increasing ramp (through artifacts), I've increased the draw. ( Ohran Viper for example)

Damage output, was good at keeping creatures off the board, but didn't have enough offense to do 3 players x 40 damage in the 1 hour, plus I was mitigating other players ability to damage each other. This is what led to the addition of Bonehoard , Nighthowler cards. I lost Blood Artist due to it's price escalating, which sucked, it's key, but I've added Poison-Tip Archer , which is no Blood Artist but he also has Deathtouch and Reach, plus instead of 1 opponent, he hits all opponents.

Glissa, the Traitor is still one of my favorite commanders, she has her strengths, has her weaknesses, she doesn't overload on abilities like Infect (which she could), so I very much enjoy playing her. Golgari () doesn't have enough combos to play cEDH, but in a Budget league, she is an excellent deck.

I have been trying to more move towards Deathtouch as well wherever I can as well, since it kind of plays towards that.

I've been playing this deck for over 4+ years, and never dismantled, only changed as the ebs and flows of the prices increased. If she was $100, she could be much more lethal.
