Elbrus, the Binding Blade Discussion
1 week ago
YOUR DAY HAS ARRIVED! ♡♡♡
Honestly, have an open discussion with your group before the game about how you want to play, whether it be matching power levels or testing something janky. No one wants to sit down at the table, unpack and then lose turn 1. Have fun, and remember, it never hurts to ask.
Now...to work on the write up for my Phoebe deck....

Quest for the Holy Relic (and so Elbrus, the Binding Blade Flip) seems like a strange choice here. With only 16/60 cards being creatures, you're going to have to have drawn through about 1/3rd of your deck before you even come across the numbers to use the Quest. Even if you have a Puresteel Paladin out to help you draw cards, that feels really unlikely to do in a format as fast as modern.
The other card i'm concerned about is Sword of Vengeance - as you're only running 19 lands, it may take a long time to get enough mana to play it. It feels like there is probably better equipment than this that doesn't come with such a high cmc.

I think that last edit I'm gonna make to this deck us upgrading the mana base with off colored fetches. Maybe. I'm not a big fan of off-colored fetches just from a flavor perspective but I think the deck could use more mana fixing. I think it's hit a pretty good point where I just want to play it rather than brew more. I don't really know where it could go from here. I also think it strikes a good balance between being a Kadena deck and a Phage deck. I'll probably update the description at some point to reflect the changes the community has helped me make. Only other thing I'm thinking about is replacing Elbrus, the Binding Blade Flip for a more reliable finisher if I can't get it to work in real games. Probably with Beastmaster Ascension and have another way to win with morphs. Thank you to everyone for your suggestions and knowledge, you helped this deck reach it's full potential.

Neotrup is right, but also remember Commander is a casual format and you can negotiate with your playgroup. If you let them know what you're thinking of, they might agree that it's cool enough to allow (I had a friend make a deck with Elbrus, the Binding Blade Flip as commander once worth the flavor of it being a cult trying to release their master).
