Iron Maiden


At the beginning of each opponent's upkeep, Iron Maiden deals 1 damage to that player for each card more than four in his or her hand.

Ferth on Fog Draw EDH

I got to play a bunch this weekend! The deck performed well I've updated the list to match what I've currently got, my local shop was missing some singles.

Generous Gift moved back to the maybeboard but only cause I couldn't buy it this weekend.

I found that the deck worked quite well but I obviously couldn't close out games. I had a few scenarios where Selvala, Explorer Returned could repeat pretty much forever thanks to Sword of the Paruns or Umbral Mantle and Smothering Tithe + 4 players in the game. Flipping my commander till deck out was too painful to ever actually do so games ended with scooping.

The take away is that I need to be able to end games just to save everybody's sanity. More things like Felidar Sovereign and Psychosis Crawler are needed. Helix Pinnacle is a meme and I'll basically never pull it off. So here is the maybe board for actually finishing games.

Viseling Storm Seeker Black Vise Iron Maiden Sword of War and Peace

Some other cards that look interesting to me are Credit Voucher to help me find the above win conditions and Champions of Minas Tirith as another tax. I found that the deck was excellent at filling everybody's hands as expected.

Overabundance and Iron Maiden have never been reprinted, so I would like to see both of those cards reprinted, as well.

All ten lieges were reprinted in Double Masters 2, but those reprints did little to increase their availability, so I would like to see them reprinted in this set, as well, and, hopefully, with new artwork for all of them.

Another great suggestion; keep em coming SufferFromEDHD! I might actually include this instead of Iron Maiden as the last is less dependable a damage source.

Interesting list! I also have a mono blue Forcefeed deck and it’s been a fun strategy to try and pull off :) My main win cons there tend to be Iron Maiden, Viseling, or Black Vise. Are these something you might consider as well or do they go against the spirit of your deck?

Played a game at an LGS on Sunday. First time playing the deck. Only 4 players there and one had to leave early. Can't say the game was high quality. Faced a Yurlok and a Niv Mizzet. Niv player was new to EDH and pretty much net-decked and and then had a lot of difficulty tracking his triggers with Veyran, Voice of Duality and Harmonic Prodigy on the field. The deck had insane ways to control the board if I wanted to, but didn't want to ruin his experience as he's new. Still, was able to make some observations.

I knew the land count was low so I bumped that up to a more reasonable 36. Will have to observe how well that works since we have such high average CMC. Spawnbroker was a a dud. I have low power creatures in this list and couldn't swap for anything useful. Moderation seemed decent, but once you're over that hurdle of the first few turns, you really start to feel sluggish with its limitations. Planar Guide costs too much and is telegraphed. Ebony Owl Netsuke was cute against the Niv player and knocked him out, but was pretty lackluster. Iron Maiden fills this slot nicely.

Perplexing Chimera was game-warping. This card singlehandedly caused mayhem until people coordinated to get rid of it. Great card.

Additions: A land Djinn of Infinite Deceits Juxtapose Phantom Steed Order of Succession

Cuts: - Archaeomancer - Ebony Owl Netsuke - Paradoxical Outcome - Planar Guide - Spawnbroker

Collective Soul


Whenever a creature dies, tap all creatures. Then that creature's controller may put a creature card from a graveyard onto the battlefield under their control. This ability triggers only once each turn.

Tap all creatures you control: Exchange control over a creature you control and a creature an opponent controls. Any player may activate this ability, but only once each turn.

Make a card like Caltrops or Lightmine Field. A permanent (creature is ok too) that deals damage to attacking creatures.

Also, for above comment, you were beaten to the punch. Iron Maiden :)

KBK7101 Thanks, I just slotted it in. Looking at it when I was building the deck I completely forgot about its synergy with Viseling and Iron Maiden.
