this deck is not Edh-Legal. You should cut Gifts Ungiven for Final Parting

I'm all about playing with my resources and trading them for whatever's best for me at the moment. "I'm prepared to make that sacrifice"

Dark Confidant - Playing with my life. It doesn't matter until it's 0, and even then a well-placed Phyrexian Unlife or Angel's Grace can save me.

Trading Post - I love artifacts, and I'll gladly re-purpose them for something else - then rebuild them. Every one of my resources can become another one at my whim.

Beacon of Tomorrows - When I run out of resources, this is how I get more. Out of card in my library? Infinitly loop this. Out of mana? Get another turn. Out of attacks? Same answer. This is how I close out my games once I've juiced them for every drop of power I can get.

Dream Salvage - My opponent has resources too. There's no way around that. But I can make a better use out of them then they can.

Gifts Ungiven - The illusion of choice is the cruelest punishment. You think you can choose what I get? Every choice is wrong.

Unburial Rites - The dead are my playthings. A fantastic piece of value, Rites can either give me 2 fantastic reanimator spells, or effectively a draw when you mill/discard it.

Counterspell - The classic. A universal answer that will keep your opponent off of doing anything that can disrupt you.

And this leaves my planeswalker. The only planeswalker that would fit these colors is Aminatou, the Fateshifter , but I would say that I identify more with Ashiok, Dream Render JA because it puts the opponents of of resources and can fuel yours.

FYI: Gifts Given is not EDH legal. If you meant Gifts Ungiven , that’s banned.

Gifts Ungiven can let you search for only 2 to bin. Much more consistent and with a BoP, can get a praetor out on turn 4.

The point about Prophet of Kruphix and Sylvan Primordial being “format warping” is more about the casual environments where everybody and their dog is copying, killing, stealing and reanimating them as soon as the hit the board. Powerful effects are desirable. For “cEDH” there are stronger things to be doing than fighting over a creature.

For me it’s a toss up between Recurring Nightmare and Gifts Ungiven . I would probably want Recurring Nightmare . That card is so fun.

Long post incoming

Firstly there are several cards which are currently banned that I think have no place on the banlist. Frankly I think that Sylvan Primordial , Prophet of Kruphix , and Paradox Engine are not in any way breaking the format. I hark back to Epochalyptik's previous posts in which he highlighted the RC's unwillingness to accept the fact that commander is more then just a causal format but also a competitive format.

If a group wishes implement a house ban on cards that are "moderately powerful" that's on them, I dont think the RC needs to ban those cards however.

As far as a card I would like to see unbanned, I think Iona, Shield of Emeria would be a fun card to have in the format, specifically I think it would make white much more playable in the EDH meta-game.

I think the big difference with Griselbrand that is different then the other cards mentioned, is that it is instant and free to use the ability (besides the negligible life loss) I think that unbanning this card would be a big mistake as it upon resolution effectively wins the game. In essence what Caerwyn said.

I think there's nothing wrong with making a respectful comment about what someone else thinks should be removed from the banlist. Calling someone out for not suggesting a card, being incorrect, and offering a fake, sarcastic, apology is rude however.

I agree that given that Intuition is legal, Gifts Ungiven which is a very similar card should also be allowed.

Sylvan Primordial is not that strong, given that Tooth and Nail is legal, and can win the game on the spot, I fail to see how Sylvan Primordial breaks the game or is on the same power level as other cards on the list.

Unbanning Tolarian Academy would make artifact decks incredibly powerful, and would be a big mistake for the format.

Instead of bringing something back from the banlist can we bring back the old tuck rule?

Regards, Dylan

Gifts Ungiven call me crazy but if we have a card like Intuition in the format, I don’t see why I can’t have my gifts.
