Infiltrator's Magemark Discussion
6 months ago
I might suggest some cards like Aether Tunnel , Cloak of Mists or even Infiltrator's Magemark with that it seems like you're leaning towards an enchantment theme, which would make me consider cards like Eidolon of Blossoms , Enchantress's Presence , Verduran Enchantress . Pretty good deck! I like the idea of killing with commander damage!

What is Nekusar doing for you in this deck? I get that it pings in when your commander comes down, but this deck doesn't seem like it cares about normal damage. I also noticed you're running Splinter Twin, but I don't see any combo pieces to make it a secondary win con. I like what you've done with the Bestow creatures, since some of them provide both evasion and future sac fodder, although you might also want to consider Aether Tunnel , Tricks of the Trade , and Infiltrator's Magemark , along with some damage doublers like Furnace of Wrath. I would also check out EDHREC for some more Grixis and Lord of Tresserhorn staples. It's odd that this deck isn't running Signets or Vandalblast and is favoring narrow answers like Annul over Negate

They power up all enchanted creatures and they enchants a creature.
QuilavaUchiha its more the endless sea of green in the underworld in the greek mythology, where the people live afterlife when the were related to the gods. There they can live blessed and peacefully.

Nice deck, your construction reminds me of my first version which was more Enchantress-draw based. Keep in mind that in those days not all cards in your deck where available. You can find that deck over here: [Rafiq 1.0] Enchantress Draw
Enchantments and Auras
There are a few enchantments i'd like to mention which I tried in my decks aswell and did not make it to the final cut (or at least the deck how I play it nowadays).
Armadillo Cloak I used to run this and also Unflinching Courage but I dropped them because in my playgroup people tend to scoop when you strike them lethal so you don't get the advantage of the lifelink.
I think you should replace these cards with cards who give better 'unblockable' bonus for instance Infiltrator's Magemark or Spirit Mantle who have a low CMC. Or maybe Drake Umbra which cost more but also gives better bonus.
Further your creature base. I also have tried cards like Herald of the Pantheon but I rather use a general ramp card than an card that only affects your enchantments. Same for Kor Spiritdancer who only triggers on auras. I would consider Knight Exemplar and Umbra Mystic who both help protecting your Commander.
Also I am not a fan of the Legendary-Enchantment Creatures. Bestow cost are mainly too high to cast and I think there are better options available. But if you want to stick to that theme that's okay and then you might consider Thassa, God of the Sea.
I see no planeswalkers in your deck and Bant has a few which really juice this deck up. One I am allready playing myself and the other one is on my wants-list. I suggest to try Tamiyo, Field Researcher and Estrid, the Masked they can be smashing. And if you are adding planeswalkers Shalai, Voice of Plenty might be a nice add.
You really need to add this one: Hunter's Insight this is a crazy card drawer in your deck. And I like cards like: Vines of Vastwood, Invigorate and Might of the Nephilim for the surprise (aka lethal) hit. They are cheap to cast and speed up the game.
Well this is all for now. I might review your deck later again. Maybe you can review mine in the latest version: [Rafiq 2.0] To Serve & Protect [cEDH]

If you want more offense, I have two suggestions: unblockability and hexproof. Aether Tunnel and Infiltrator's Magemark are great. But what really takes the cake here is Spirit Mantle. It is unblockable, but also dodges creature abilities. For hexproof, I have three suggestions: Alpha Authority, Shielding Plax, and the best of the three, Canopy Cover.

I feel like Liliana's Caress and Megrim should be in here for the damage when you make your opponents discard by swinging and hitting with Bolas. Painful Quandary could also work as a buffer to any removal. Also, you could also give Nicol Bolas Grafted Exoskeleton or Phyresis to kill the enemy faster and Whispersilk Cloak or Infiltrator's Magemark to make him unblockable. Finally, Cruel Ultimatum should be in here for the sweet, sweet flavour.

Warpath251 thanks for the advice. Tricks of the Trade is actually one of the cards that I was planning to drop anyway in this deck, too expensive CMC for the bonus it gives. I like the scry-bonus with Aqueous Form but it lacks the pump-bonus which I really want in every Aura in the deck.
In fact I am considering Infiltrator's Magemark to fill this slot. Gives a +1/+1 bonus and makes Rafiq of the Many hard to block. It can be played under any creature to give the bonus which might be handy in combination with Umbra Mystic.
