Infernal Genesis

Enchantment

At the beginning of each player's upkeep, that player puts the top card of his or her library into his or her graveyard. He or she then puts X 1/1 black Minion creature tokens into play, where X is that card's converted mana cost.

Gleeock on Most chaotic deck

I am SO in love with this. Hardcore EDH players have a tendancy to make a "coin-flip chaos" deck though & just make a million flips until it is no longer chaos... So watch out for that. Some Max chaos cards: Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire , Etali, Primal Storm , Oath of Druids , Rampage of the Clans , Infernal Genesis , Endless Whispers (not a may ability) Uba Mask , Captive Audience , Thantis, the Warweaver , Overabundance , Hypergenesis , Painful Quandary , Ruric Thar, the Unbowed , The Great Aurora , Bolas's Citadel - if you don't try the topdeck nonsense... Several of these will achieve chaotic games in diverse ways: punish people for waiting to play, force them to play, force parity, or make random splash plays for your advantage. Of course, forcing unusual parity doesn't lend a hand to you winning, but that is not the point.

Infernal Genesis so fun, random, & someone always seems to miss the minion-drop & they "eat it"

Amazing deck and presentation! Looks really pleasurable to pilot. I love all the synergies you've built between Haakon and Elenda.

Here comes a few suggestions I've in mind :

+1 btw!

Very cool; building around Kazarov is on my ever-expanding EDH “To Do” list.

Plague Spitter and Ronin Cliffrider are conspicuously absent.

Maybe giving your opponents would be worth considering, with things like Genesis Chamber or Infernal Genesis .

Your creatures dying punishing your opponents is good but I feel you lack fuel for the stacks approach and your commander in general. With that in mind I have some token generators that might help with that: Abhorrent Overlord, Evangel of Heliod, Captain of the Watch, Cloudgoat Ranger, Geist-Honored Monk, Ghoulcaller Gisa, Grave Titan, Elspeth, Sun's Champion, Infernal Genesis, Leonin Warleader, Ophiomancer, Pawn of Ulamog, Secure the Wastes, Sengir Autocrat, Skirsdag High Priest. I have tried to choose creatures that were efficient in general and gain value with reanimation.

A couple of useful creatures to consider as well: Elenda, the Dusk Rose, Teysa, Orzhov Scion.

Neat ideal with the two faced deck.

cuelix on Sidar Kondo: give them toys ...

1 year ago

Hey gang, first thread here so please feel free to provide any constructive criticism! Haven't been active in a forum for quite some time..

Anyways, I'm contemplating sort of an odd strategy to utilize Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa as a general. I'm considering Vial Smasher the Fierce or Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist as his partner. Right now it seems like black brings more to the table for this particular strategy and I love b/w removal options but it's possible there are things I've overlooked in blue, and Ludevic insentivizes the kind of thing I'm going for and gives me access to Edric, Spymaster of Trest for total craziness!

The main strategy of this deck would be to give my opponents little 1/1 and 2/2 tokens to hit each other with providing evasion with Kondo, maybe turn up the heat with goad and goad-like effects while trying to deter combat damage directed to myself with cards like Ghostly Prison, Sphere of Safety, Crawlspace, Dictate of Erebos, Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs, Mystic Barrier. You get the picture!

Mob Rule, Insurrection, Army of the Damned and Massacre Wurm are possible win conditions and Overseer of the Damned, Blood Artist, Soul Warden, Vicious Shadows, and Revel in Riches benefit from a carnage of etb and death triggers. I can also benefit from the Commander 2017 curses so that's something to consider as well!

What I feel I need the most help with is cards that put tokens into the battlefield under an opponent(s) control. They're definitely a corner case and it's not entirely easy to do a search for them either seeing how the wording varies quite a bit for cards that do this!

Some I've found are:

I'd also love to hear some interesting synergies if someone comes up with any! This will definitely be a casual deck so no suggestion is too outside of the box, please feel free!

Thank you!

P.S. ooooooh! I just discovered Mogg Infestation!!
