zume on Commander Suggestions!

Zur the Enchanter will always be one of my favorite commanders. Doomsday + Necropotence type build is how I play him. I also play food chain and Flash hulk. But my most fun decks I play are not really competitive.

The most fun decks I play are Boros Giant tribal. Win con being Godo and Helm of the Host . Also been playing with an mono blue shutdown deck with Llawan, Cephalid Empress + Painter's Servant . I also play Grindstone of course.

Hissp on Commanders by Power Level [EDH Tier List]

1 week ago

Hi ShaperSavant,

I'm not sure if this is the best place for these discussions or somewhere on discord but...I have some additional thoughts on Mid Power commanders that should be moved up:

  1. Zndrsplt, Eye of Wisdom + Okaun, Eye of Chaos -- This deck Coinzzzzz made it to the final pod of a cEDH tournament as reported on reddit last week. It's a 1-card combo with Zndrsplt + Frenetic Efreet . Here's another list that adopts a Polymorph strategy: Zndrsplt & Okaun - Polydox Scepter (PRIMER).

  2. Llawan, Cephalid Empress -- Not sure if this slipped under the radar amidst the dust kicked up by the Paradox ban, but LLawan + Painter's Servant locks all opponents out of casting creatures, evening through Cavern of Souls , including Commanders. Can then assemble a Grindstone combo or perhaps Scepter combo. Here's a Scepter-less list I came across: Painter Llawan.

  3. Kambal, Consul of Allocation -- He's a must-answer stax piece for many cEDH lists in the command zone. A High-power list Kambal's tax collection **LCL Playoff** recently won a tournament/league as reported on reddit 2 weeks ago, with about a 50/50 cEDH/high-power composition. Here's a list with a very different approach (and cEDH staples! Kambal's Pact - Vilis, Broker of Blood.

  4. Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle -- I just really like this primer Worship's Reward - Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle; seems better than Sram to me.

Thanks for your consideration!

Could put Traumatize in there as a combo piece with Fraying Sanity for a near instant win. Also Phenax, God of Deception and Eater of the Dead is also an instant win. Painter's Servant and Grindstone also work as a brilliant mill combo.

Gidgetimer on Choosing Piles with Lili

Off the top of my head, if you are on UR Painter and have:

Volcanic Island

Seat of the Synod

Mountain

Grim Monolith (untapped)

Grindstone (tapped to make it so that the untapped monolith isn't an immediate combo)

Painter's Servant

2x Goblin Welder

The piles of

Goblin Welder , Grim Monolith , Painter's Servant

Goblin Welder , Grindstone , lands

Make it so that you can combo off the next turn with either pile. The piles of

2x Goblin Welder , Grindstone

Painter's Servant , mana

Make it so that the earliest you can combo with known information is 2 turns away. The difference that the extra turn makes to lili's controller is huge.

Indeed, Grindstone and Painter's Servant are the main two that I am eyeing for the near future, possibly Isochron Scepter as well. Grafdigger's Cage and Scheming Symmetry are currently the first two on my list of cards to acquire.

So far the deck has been a lot of fun to play (so long as a legendary eldrazi isn't hiding in a library). It is especially fun to be able to resolve Fraying Sanity and Traumatize or a Fleet Swallower trigger, heh.

Hi guys, thanks for taking the time to look at the deck and even make suggestions.

I have considered Azusa, Lost but Seeking but in my meta, board wipes are abundant. That's why i favor Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip over other green commanders because of her +1 to help get me back in the game. (and deck-thinning whenever i re-cast her but people always laugh at that percentage)

Mox Diamond is a tough one, It is a great card but the -1 land for Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip makes me feel bad. I do have Ramunap Excavator but i tend to use him for emergencies to get my Eye of Ugin back in case it gets destroyed. Carpet of Flowers might have a place in this deck and my meta.

Ritual of Subdual and other stax pieces I tend to shy away from because of the immediate hate it generates. Granted a lot of people already hate me because they all know I play Eldrazi, so I might have to re-think my stance. For starters I had Null Rod , Collector Ouphe and Hall of Gemstone in mind.

Deserted Temple might be a shoe-in especially with Gaea's Cradle , you are right about Temple of the False God , Prismatic Vista will be taking a Forest spot soon.

God-Eternal Rhonas could be worth a shot, I do have some flex spots. Painter's Servant what a nasty card. The Grindstone combo does violate the LGS rules, but what i had in mind was to combo it with Lifeforce that and Ugin, the Spirit Dragon -X pops everyone's lands or if i feel like restarting the game I use it with All Is Dust .

I like where this deck is going, it feels really versatile for a Mono Green deck. I'll try to update it soon and get some games in for more data. Once again thanks for the help guys I really appreciate it.

SideBae on Nissa, Vastwood Seer/Eldrazi

Very solid build; I like it. Have you considered using Azusa, Lost but Seeking as your general? I feel like her ability is more important to have early access to than Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip's.

Have you considered Mox Diamond ? In conjunction with Ramunap Excavator , it's pretty great. I run the pair in my Tasigur, the Golden Fang deck. Carpet of Flowers is a good mana-source if your meta is like mine and always has a blue opponent.

Stax pieces are good. TheCardPool's suggestion of Ritual of Subdual is good, but I think, as it costs 6 mana to cast, it will usually come down a little too late to have much effect on the board. Root Maze and Manglehorn are good places to start; if your meta is blue-heavy, Choke is a busted card.

You have a couple lands that produce more than one mana. Deserted Temple is a pretty good way to squeeze extra value out of them. I think it would likely be better than Temple of the False God , which is a dead land the first few turns of a game.

I'm not sure, but I've a feeling God-Eternal Rhonas is worth an include. Finding him with Finale of Devastation if your Craterhoof Behemoth is somehow not sufficient is a good play, and just casting him from your hand is also perfectly acceptable.

Prismatic Vista is another fetch for this deck.

So, Painter's Servant has finally been unbanned in EDH. Naming 'Green' and casting Natural Order lets you grab an Eldrazi to the battlefield. Granted, it doesn't give a cast trigger, and Craterhoof Behemoth is likely still a better target, but it's worth having on your radar. Dramatic Entrance is a similar way to capitalize, along with the classing Grindstone combo. The Grindstone loop might violate your LGS's rules, but again -- keep it in mind.

Good luck, my man! I like the deck.

BMHKain on Some ideas for Cuts & ...

2 months ago

Uh... Bump? Apparently Bold does nothing; & the same with Italics...

I'm asking again as nobody seems to understand; & the few that do mock it.:

  1. Do you think Pierakor az Vinrenn D'rav deserves a spot on the 99/98? We already have a cEDH Commander Deck based on her, & she's Tier 3; which is where I'm starting; very young. If so, what would you suggest for better variants of the Instants/Sorceries I have now? If not, remember that Sunforger is also trash here. Same for how broken Panoptic Mirror is, & unbanning that would lead to infinite destruction (As long as it doesn't have & is Upkeep Friendly...); just remember we still have Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter

  2. Is Eldrazi Displacer worth keeping here? What about Legion's Initiative ? Just found out about a card in Boros' colors than cleanses you of Poison Counters. How about Leeches ?

  3. UPDATE: Grindstone & Painter's Servant = awesome. This is resolved; now I am thinking of making Dream Combos for Boros; There was one out there for Doomsday , but I wonder about the others...

  4. How does one make a Community Deck? I plan to make one for the few cEDH Boros Users in the subformat.

  5. For Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker & Village Bell-Ringer , how good is Generator Servant , or Catalyst Elemental good, or should I stay with the usual Phyrexian Altar & Ashnod's Altar ?

I'd really like your opinion on this; is any of this worth it?
