At the beginning of your upkeep, sacrifice Contamination unless you sacrifice a creature.

If a land is tapped for mana, it produces (Black) instead of any other type and amount.

Trying to oppress your opponents and not running all the super strong oppression cards that Muldrotha can abuse? Where’s the Contamination? Where’s the Mana Vortex?!? You could be running Opposition Agent and Mindslicer. Make it a 2v1v1 and run Mindslaver! There are still a lot of options left to really be degenerate and oppress everyone.

I am so glad your changes are working! Mind telling us the opposing commanders you faced? I'm trying to get an understanding of your meta.

I know you love murdering dorks, but how often do opponents use artifact ramp to bypass Contamination? I know you have artifact removal but I'm curious. Or is more testing needed?

Profet93, GoldenGolgari, skeletonkey8: Okay, so!

I played some cEDH games with this yesterday. The deck worked wonderfully: I won 2 out of 3, and I should have won the 4th if it wasn't for a really dumb mistake -- I cracked Voidwalker to steal someone else's Earthcraft with my combo in hand, realized afterward that I had zero basics, and immediately died to a combo Voidwalker would have stopped. Welp.

Standard Bearer and Heroic are much better in a more casual format with lots of board wipes. CEDH doesn't have many of those, apart from Toxic Deluge (which Heroic doesn't even stop). Besides, my biggest concern in cEDH is stopping opposing combos rather than protecting my own board. I need to find ways to answer Thassa's Oracle, Ad Nauseam, and Underworld Breach.

I haven't drawn Fynn yet, but I'm optimistic. It's not hard to get 3 or 4 snakes, and then I can two-hit people to death. It's a good, solid wincon when I'm stuck under my own stax pieces.

I got to play both Trinisphere AND Contamination yesterday -- both separately AND in the same game (my poor, poor opponents). Both did wonders, and pretty much won singlehandedly. Note that Plumb the Forbidden does NOT non-bo with Trinisphere :) The copies aren't cast and are thus unaffected.

By and large, I'm very happy with the changes!

I agree with Profet93, i very excited to hear about your results with the stax pieces. Mostly Contamination =D

But what i have been going back and forth on asking is, how is Trinisphere treating you? Does it feel like too much with the low mana curve or that it non-bo's with Plumb the Forbidden. It seems crazy good here and a great extra piece of stax with Collector Ouphe and Culling Ritual to slow down greedy opponents

Profet93: Heya! With some testing, I can say the following:

Culling Ritual needs to go back in. It's just too good. I was scared off because it blows up most of my combo pieces, but I think I'll just have to sequence my play better ;)

Rushed Rebirth is bonkers here, honestly. Just amazing every time.

Grim Hireling has been awesome, he almost always makes his mana back immediately. I expect to get 6 Treasures per turn with him.

Smell Fear usually gives me an extra snake or two plus trading a snake for something. It's been decent so far!

I'm tuning this deck back into a proper cEDH form soon, so we'll see where it goes :) Contamination and a couple more stax pieces back in? Going a little closer to Poisonball.

skeletonkey8: Hmmm. Just too easy to counter with spot removal, honestly? And there's too much exiling removal around, and I don't run many sac outlets. I'm not sure it'll be as good as I wish it were. Still, could try it over Survival of the Fittest perhaps.

KrarkTheAngryBoi: I tested that years ago, actually. It just was WAY too slow, and wiped my snakes every turn, and eventually killed Hapatra, leaving me with nothing. I wasn't a huge fan. Midnight Banshee was better, but still got cut :(

Vessiliana, yes that is the case, but I usually only play Contamination as a defensive tool, especially against blue control decks that can shut this deck down.
