Hello KibaAlpha!

It has been a while, and i hope you're doing well. Reyhan has gotten allot of new tools recently, any to be considered?

Kutzil, Malamet Exemplar can net you up to 3 cards each "uninterrupted" combat steps. Bristly Bill, Spine Sower can go infinite mana with Crystalline Crawler with some setup and Railway Brawler - while not completely within your +1 strategy - can pack a punch.

Almios on Blessed Perfection [1.3/MOM] - Suggestions Wanted!

My suggestions are based on not spending an arm and a leg to make improvements but maybe a finger or toe.

At a quick glance the first comment I have is lands seem a little low. I personally lean towards 36 if the deck isn't mono colored.

I know they are a bit slower but I would suggest using the tri colored lands as you are already using fetches. These lands add some real good color fixing early on and if they do become dead in hand cycle them away. Spara's Headquarters, Zagoth Triome, Indatha Triome and Raffine's Tower. I would replace your lands that reference the opponent count to come in untapped.

A land that goes on theme is Mirrex since it can get you mites as the game drags on. A second land I recommend since your land base is so varied is Field of the Dead, the zombies can add up and are nice little chumps if need be.

With the above changes I would say Crucible of Worlds but if you find sometimes you struggle to have something to play Conduit of Worlds is an extra mana but has the ability to give you the chance to cast something when you might not have anything else to work with.

I would personally go full Praetor and run each variation if possible for the big flavor. The added benefit is each one of them is practically game warping, but be warned it can attract a lot of attention. The newest Vorinclex is probably the odd man out though since he only finds basic forests and Dominaria Sheoldred simply because of price. Added benefits of the new praetors is you can accelrate their saga. Realmbreaker, the Invasion Tree would then make a very nice inclusion if you go that way.

Cards to consider dumping for them from what I can at a first glance are Flesh-Eater Imp, Plague Stinger, Septic Rats and Slaughter Singer. I chose these because I don't feel once they hit the board they are something that people say "this needs to die".

Norn's Choirmaster is a recent card that gives your commander even more of a presence on the board.

On the sorcery since the only card that I don't like the look of is Nature's Lore, sure it is a cheap way to get you your colors especially if you have dual typed lands but if we are upping the land count I would switch it to a Skyshroud Claim since it can find you the same lands but untapped if the land can come in untapped for mana efficiency.

The biggest suggestion on the instant side would be to add Krosan Grip over Infectious Bite. Sure the bite is a form of removal and poison generation but I find having one of the best artifact/enchantment removals is the better option.

I understand the suggestion fromm KongMing as a strong one but I don't think it works the way he intended it Temporal Distortion does put counters on their lands but it removes ALL of them not just one so even if you proliferate it doesn't keep the lands tapped down longer unless you destroy your own enchantment.

Astral Cornucopia is nice with since you can keep building it but getting only one color out of it can be problematic at times. I suggest replacing with a Crystalline Crawler if you are find being a little off theme.

I would find a home for Chromatic Lantern, having one artifact to fix all of your mana problems is very nice especially when in more than two colors.

Overall there are a couple of other cards I would recommend to consider but unsure of an exact home without taking apart every step. Grafted Exoskeleton, Tainted Strike, if you go the praetor route Geth's Summons is a great reanimation spell of you have the corrupted. Yawgmoth's Vile Offering is also a very strong spell for reanimation and removal. Inexorable Tide should probably have a home somewhere, it is a bit high CMC but it gets the job done. As Foretold also helps a lot of mana problems, do keep in mind it can also be used off turns if you have instant speed spells.

Closest in flavor I think of off the top of my head. Crystalline Crawler any of the few ways to turn lifegain into plus 1 counters. And life gain aura. I think there are some that let your creature tap to gain life.

I don't know if you're in the market for any more infinite combos, but I actually came up with one earlier this week and I think you could try it out for size if you'd like.

It uses Throne of Geth and either Pentavus or Thopter Squadron to infinitely Proliferate. You need any artifact that can remove charge counters or 1/1 counters to add mana, such as Pentad Prism, Cryptic Trilobite, or Crystalline Crawler. The trilobite will give you infinite mana that you can spend on activated abilities and I'm sure you could win from there. The key piece is Dross Scorpion, which will untap your throne every time you sac an artifact creature. If you don't have the mana producers you can still Proliferate as many times as you have mana, which is a crazy good rate!

Is it a good combo? Probably not, seeing as it needs 4 pieces plus a board state that can take advantage of all the Proliferation, but I would love to see someone pull it off. I kind of live for jank lol.

Sephyrias on Best Commanders in EDH [Tier List] Part 1

Does Mairsil, the Pretender have the potential to go higher?

What are the best combo routes for him? Untap with Aphetto Alchemist or Cinderhaze Wretch? Walking Ballista/Triskelion/Crystalline Crawler/Endling +1/+1 counters?

What kind of card would be needed for him to go up a tier?

Tome of Legends , Urza's Saga , and Smothering Tithe are both powerful and synergistic, but are also expensive. If you are using the Osgir precon as a shell for the deck, Digsite Engineer and Bronze Guardian are both payoffs for having a ton of artifacts, as well as Darksteel Juggernaut . Walking Ballista , Triskelion , and Monoskelion are all good at converting counters into damage, and Fiery Emancipation seems like some great top end in order to make your stuff hit hard enough to kill. Other good counter payoffs include Triskelavus , Pentavus , and Crystalline Crawler .If you plan to sacrifice creatures a lot, then Blade of the Bloodchief can do a lot of work here too.
