Gilver on Tetsuo Rageblade

haydensmith423 Looks nice!

I would cut Bloodthirster. It doesn't untap Tetsuo and is a wasted slot for 6 mana imo. You already have enough extra combat cards. Jin-Gitaxias, Progress Tyrant is also too expensive, yes the payoff is great but you would be better off to run something like Propaganda for more protection from go-wide decks, after all, you are not running lots of creatures and are going to be open for attackers. I am also not sure about Kaldra Compleat, sounds good on paper but has an high equipment cost and 7 CMC. You could slot in Blackblade Reforged, which can make him real strong.

Chandra's Ignition is a must-have card, can finish off opponnents when tetsuo has infect or you can end up gaining lots of life if he has lifelink.

Also have a look at Kediss, Emberclaw Familiar. Why not hurt the whole table if you are at it?

Another crucial card you are missing in this deck is Hammer of Nazahn. Not only does tetsuo gain indestructibe, but you ignore equipment costs. It is a huuuge advantage.

You can also go infinite with Sword of Hearth and Home if you have Akki Battle Squad out, it is a great equipment and one of the cheaper "Sword of X and Y" cards.

Inevitable Betrayal is also one of those suspend casts which you can cast for "free". It is a fun card so definitely include it if you find the space. Imagine stealing a Blightsteel Colossus from someone or an Eldrazi.

I am also not sure if Sword of Truth and Justice is a good idea to run in this deck. The card gives you protection from red, which makes it unable to be equiped with cards like Embercleave. The payoff is decent, can make tetsuo pretty beefy in the long run.

Finally, Jhoira, Ageless Innovator and Pact Weapon are nice to haves in this deck. Cheat out equipment and cheat death. Also maybe cut Solemn Simulacrum and slot in Sword of the Animist. You are playing an equipment deck so why not go for an equipment for ramp instead.

You can check out my list if you feel like it, would appreciate your opinion! I went for cheap equipments and try to win through commander damage and/or infect. Not really that much different from your list. If you have questions, feel free to hit me up :D.

Show and Tell or Flood of Tears serve as extra ways to cheat big things in. I also run Jin-Gitaxias, Progress Tyrant because two copies of Expropriate or extra turns is better than one.

Hey, To get back at your Addition from newer sets, there haven't been any great cEDH hate cards lately :'( Cards from Dominaria United that come to mind are not too great either and very specific.

Karn's Sylex : Disk but you need to put mana into it and is way too narrow...

Gerrard's Hourglass Pendant : Perhaps if you face a load of Edric turns or extra turn effect decks in your meta.

Shanna, Purifying Blade : A worse version of Tymna for bant as you need to spend mana on it... but it could be a decent drawing tool.

Other than that;

Jin-Gitaxias, Progress Tyrant is funny with rule of law effects.

Now for,

Anointed Peacekeeper ( Pithing Needle )

These cards are way too narrow in a cEDH meta stopping only one of your opponents isn't going to make the cut for me. They are generally great 1v1 cards but don't fit a multiplayer setting.

Abaques on New Sheoldred price speculation

A huge number of packs for Dominaria United are going to be opened. Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider is at around $28 right now and its a more powerful card in EDH compared to Sheoldred.

Jin-Gitaxias, Progress Tyrant is at about $10 right now though I would argue that Sheoldred is a better card in EDH in comparison.

I think that Sheoldred will end up somewhere in between, though I'm gonna guess a price of around $15 after a couple months. That could obviously change if it somehow fits into a good standard, pioneer or modern deck, but I'm a bit doubtful, she seems built for EDH. I think release weekend will probably be the best time to buy. Long term it could creep back up, but I don't think it'll hit $30-40 for a long time.

Its a very good EDH card, but there are a whole lot of those around and Sheoldred, the Apocalypse is really only great in a dedicated wheel deck, but it will also be a magnet for removal in those decks.

spaghettibeast on The archenemy

In terms of EDH, Sen Triplets seems good. Esper has a lot of options for turning yourself into the archenemy without even using the Triplets which also make everyone hate your deck. Other mean EDH decks I have experience are helmed by Crosis, the Purger, Jin-Gitaxias, Progress Tyrant (rated #1 for least fun among my play group), and Ephara, God of the Polis. Hope this helps. I have decks for all of these and will link them below.

Mortlocke on The Song of Phyresis

Sterling0528, it's funny that you mentioned Might of Old Krosa - the earlier iteration of this deck was very much like your Atraxa Infect deck. Did you also run Become Immense, Rancor, and Stonewood Invocation? I had a similar win rate to yours - my game plan was just "make infect creatures go brrrrr". I assure you it took a lot of trial and error to make this list to what it is today, thanks for the compliment. The deck has come far, but it's not quite "compleat" yet - I really hope Wizards beefs up Infect with some new creatures that are just absurd.

I really do enjoy scriptures but our discussion has made me revisit it. Also, when I did run Toxic Deluge in an earlier iteration Jin-Gitaxias, Progress Tyrant did not exist. Both spells have their strengths, but stand alone Deluge stands to be a bit stronger. I can also potentially "save" more of my own board state if I can get enough +1/+1 counters on creatures. I did use Phyresis in this deck and never found it a worthwhile inclusion - the -1/-1 counters for just infect is just sub-par. I keep an original print Grafted Exoskeleton in foil in my no-trade binder just in case I get the itch to experiment with it again but that itch hasn't come. I honestly think the future (aka WOTC) will provide the solutions I seek for this deck. My vision for Atraxa is so close I can feel it. With the recent narrative of the game shifting to Phyrexians it's only a matter of time.

Do you think Sheoldred will make a return as a new card? What do you think Elesh Norn's new card would do?
