Thanks for your suggestion, DreadKhan! I wac considering Culling Ritual but I'm kind of on the fence about it. I know many people use it in high powered metas, but I always feel like I have the most dorks and cheap utility stuff on the board, and it would be hard to use Culling Ritual effectively. Although I admit, that it may be some confirmation bias on my part. The card was pretty much adopted as soon as it came out, and it's obviously very powerful. I'll run some more tests. Then again, I like how reliable and simple Damnation is, and if I were to add Culling Ritual, I'd probably have to cut it.

Have you considered Culling Ritual to ramp for big plays while clearing out opponent's small artifacts and dorks? It's a fun card in higher power metas, expect some groans if you hit someone sitting on treasures or clues. I also like extra STE effects like Dawntreader Elk or even Diligent Farmhand not sure if they are just too slow for a meta as competitive as yours. I find if I can get a STE out to power out Meren, it becomes potentially my rampiest deck, and this also generates XP.

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 :(

Swapped in 2 more Valentin, Dean of the Vein  Flip, 2 more Daemogoth Titan, and 2 more Poet's Quill; Swapped for Culling Ritual and Rushed Rebirth, and updated sidebar. Fielding one Witherbloom Apprentice, might replace him with something lifelink.

LMK if I should take out Moldervine Reclamation, Sanguine Indulgence, and Village Rites (and lands) to make it standard format... feel free to suggest replacements. currently feeling Village Rites -> Deadly Dispute, Sanguine Indulgence ->??? Moldervine Reclamation -> Poet's Quill Moldervine Reclamation -> Essence Infusion

Culling Ritual - I know its testing cut but how did it play out for you while it had it's stay? Seems like a super powerful ritual, but getting rid of all of your artifacts aside from trinisphere, tokens etc... what did you usually funnel that mana into? Tutoring some combo line, creating an aggressive boardstate?

Rushed Rebirth - Seems SUPER cool. I'm assuming yawgmoth is usually the target if possible.

Grim Hireling - Seems slow, I would love to know how it plays out. Keep us in the loop!

Smell Fear - How has it played for you? Assuming you profilerate, tell your snake to bite someone?
