When Lazav, the Multifarious enters the battlefield, surveil 1. (Look at the top card of your library. You may put it into your graveyard.)
: Lazav, the Multifarious becomes a copy of target creature card in your graveyard with converted mana cost X, except its name is Lazav, the Multifarious, it's legendary in addition to its other types, and it has this ability.

Lazav, the Multifarious Discussion
1 day ago
I was playing Rankle, Master of Pranks, just resolved a Gray Merchant of Asphodel in a 5 player game for 16, so I was at 102 life. I swing in with Rankle, put all three options on the stack. My Phenax, God of Deception opponent mills himself in response, turns his Lazav, the Multifarious into a freshly milled Tree of Perdition, taps it to exchange its toughness with my life total, untaps it with Thousand-Year Elixir, and uses his commander's ability to mill me for 102, the Rankle trigger resolves, and I'm dead for drawing on an empty library.

I currently do not have a list, I'll have to upload it to TappedOut sometime this week.
Yes, Necrotic Ooze is used. Ooze is the best creature to go off, but the commander Lazav, the Multifarious allows you to go off more consistently and much faster than just Ooze. In fact, the requirements for t3 comboing is somehow getting Scholar in the yard and playing Lazav t2, as well as having Stinkweed Imp or Golgari Thug either in hand or in the top X cards of your deck, where X is calculated based on the number of creatures you have in hand and are in the top X cards of your deck. I haven't built the equation yet.
I think Vampiric Tutor would be a great upgrade, plus some fetches and whatnot.
The deck is literally capable to doing just about anything you want, from making infinite creatures to taking infinite turns to literally casting everything your opponents have in their decks just for fun.
I don't get to play it often, because it takes forever to combo off, but it always wins.

Ok, so I swapped Wall of Blood for Etrata, the Silencer, and included Final Parting. I think that should do the trick, and I shoved in some pillowfort stuff in too, like Silent Arbiter - that should be cool, right, keeping aggression off my back, and repeatable thanks to Lazav, the Multifarious ?

I'm trying to build a Lazav, the Multifarious deck and I want to make it work well, but I don't necessarily want to make it a combo deck. I already have plenty of combo decks and I feel like a lot of them play out the same. Make infinite mana and deal infinite damage with stuff like Torment of Hailfire/Exsanguinate. It works, but it gets old sometimes. I just want to keep it a voltron deck, but at the same time voltron isn't that great in commander so idk if I should go the combo route or not. Can anyone help? If it helps, my playgroup isn't really a competitive group, but at the same time they aren't strangers to competitive strategies from time to time.

Very cool deck! You might consider these: Biomancer's Familiar, Elite Arcanist, Lazav, the Multifarious, Helm of the Host, Wild Research, Gemstone Array, Soulfire Grand Master, Metallurgic Summonings, Dawn of Hope, Angel's Grace, Chance for Glory, Illusionist's Bracers, Crystalline Crawler, Crab Umbra, Ilysian Caryatid, Nin, the Pain Artist

I would say if your budget is low you’ll want to stick to 1-2 color decks since the mana base on 3+ colors can start to get expensive if you are trying to make the deck good.
That being said going with Neheb, Dreadhorde Champion is good with a red ramp sort of build that you could use for big red creatures, voltron, or burn strategies.
God-Eternal Kefnet would be good for spell slinging builds although I personally don’t know how the deck would win since I don’t play blue too much.
Lastly Lazav, the Multifarious is an interesting strategy with combining mil and making one big commander.
Just giving a general breakdown for stuff you can go with. I’d say from those three the best that you could upgrade later if you’d want to take it out of budget range is Kefnet.

So, I have 6 EDH decks, but one of them is really mediocre and I want to gut and replace it.
For reference, I have already built
Lazav, the Multifarious combo
Tuvasa the Sunlit enchantress control
Neheb, Dreadhorde Champion facepunc? IDK
God-Eternal Kefnet blue control
Sisay, Weatherlight Captain Legendary Box of Tools. LGBT 'cos rainbow. :)
And I don't particularly want to have duplicate strategies.
So, any recommendations as to what I should build? I have a rather low budget, but I can eventually pick up some more expensive pieces if they're necessary.
Also, my decks are mostly built the way they're built because it's an interesting playstyle or memes(Sisay and Neheb are much memier than the others).
Additionally, any recommendations for Neheb? He's easily the worst of the bunch, but I keep him 'cos my grandma likes to play minotaur decks.
Thanks in advance!
