Fun deck! Other good ramp you might want to include in this deck could be Burgeoning, Carpet of Flowers, or Birds of Paradise. Great value cards to add, in my opinion, are Esper Sentinel and Mystic Remora. These would all help you lower the curve. I would consider cutting a few less-valuable dragons, the more costly enchantments, or perhaps Mirror of the Forebears since so many of your creatures are legendary.

So at this point I've managed to get in 500 games of Hullbreacher and Opposition Agent play in various decks and that's a large enough sample size to be pretty confident in the results of the data.

Hullbreacher already got banned but I'll start with some statistics for it. 503 game played with Hullbreacher included in at least one of the lists. 318 wins for Hullbreacher decks in that span, and with everything accounted for the card wound up with an expected win share percentage of + 6.6%. In other words, just adding that card alone to a deck would bump it's win share % up from 25% in a vacuum to over 31% in that same vacuum. Our database has some 5,000 total cEDH games tracked and logged at this point, and 10s of thousands of individual cards performance's tracked as well. This probably won't come as a shock, but Hullbreacher, of every single individual card we've ever tracked and tested posted the highest single card expected win share increase of any card in MTG's history. By a lot. More than double the increase in win share percentage from the next closest card with a minimum 500 game sample size. In our data set it's confirmed at this point to be the most dominant performing card in cEDH history. Not to surprising it wound up banned.

Astonishingly (or perhaps not) the number 2 card on the list in terms of expected win share contribution in a minimum sample size of 500 games in the entire 5000+ game data set we've collected is Opposition Agent. 500 games on the nose, 206 wins, and a final expected win share contribution of +3.1%. Until these 2 cards were printed we'd never had a single card post even a +3.0% expected win share contribution and we'd seen some dominant numbers from cards like Extract, Timetwister, Wheel of Fortune, Force of Will, Ashiok, Dream Render, Paradox Engine, Carpet of Flowers, Thassa's Oracle and Deathrite Shaman over +2.5%.

According to the data I've collected so far, Oppo Agent and Hullbreacher are the two most dominant cards ever printed for cEDH and by very significant margins. It wasn't even a contest, these two just performed heads and shoulders above every other card in the format.

Almost certainly this data set is not perfect or ideal, it's a mere 500ish game sample size compared to data we might have for a card in Legacy or Vintage that might have 10,000 or even 100,000 games of tracked data over several decades that can be easily found on the internet, so take these findings with a grain of salt would be my recommendation. I know since I've started posting more and more statistics based approaches to evaluating cards and decks in cEDH that more folks have been doing the same (hard to argue with the benefit of the results and those sweet extra wins here and there based off an analytics approach) and I'd be curious to see what kind of data others have collected about these 2 cards since their release. I think it's pretty unlikely our group wound up with an aberrant data set, but it's the kind of result that is so over the top and even a bit unexpected (seriously? THESE are the two best all time performing cards for cEDH?) that even I'm a bit skeptical looking at the results of the data collection.

We've had a fair amount of time to experiment with these 2 bad boys by now, so I'm curious about the results of any one else who tracks data like this and what their data set might say about the performance of these 2 cards in cEDH. If you've got some interesting results to share let us know how they've been performing in your games.

Picked up a Rhystic Study put it in over Manifold Insights. Also getting an Oko, Thief of Crowns, Carpet of Flowers, Neoform, and Eldritch Evolution soon. If anyone is still subscribed here, any recommendations on what to pull for them? Thanks!

I would do Chalice of the Void. Mine is Mirrodin, just fyi. For your Carpet of Flowers, borderless Oko, Thief of Crowns, and Eldritch Evolution. If you had an extra Neoform laying around you wanted to throw on there, I certainly wouldn't complain. Haha

I tried checking your binder, but I have a Chalice of the Void I would be willing to let go if you're interested. but I would need more than just the Carpet of Flowers for it, think we could work out something there?

Hey, yeah i will do nykthos for borderless Oko. I don't have anything else i am willing to trade unfortunately, but i would be willing to trade a little over value for your Carpet of Flowers. Maybe $38 ish if that would change your mind.

Hello, recently back to the site, got my trade binder updated finally, and I am really interested in picking up a Carpet of Flowers. I also want a Mystic Remora, Freed from the Real, and an Oko, Thief of Crowns. To be fair feel free to look through and ask about some other trade, i am hunting EDH staples and lands. Please take a look and see if we can make a deal. I'll apologize in advance, some of my cards are from Mystery Boosters, but i haven't updated the sets in my binder. When you inquire about a card i will most assuredly let you know what youre getting though. Thanks for your time!

Hey. I know you only have one, but would you be willing to take a quick look at my binder to see of you would be willing to trade anything for your Carpet of Flowers?
