Livio's Blessing

Legendary Enchantment

Whenever you exile a creature, it's controller draws a card and you gain 1 life.


I'm not entirely certain, but Livio seems to want to be built around ETB effects. Exile your own creatures, then bring them back into one massive drop; For example, Luminate Primordial would be an incredibly strong blink creature. Sure your opponents gain a ton of life, but you remove their biggest threats permanently. Additionally, as he has Partner, you can add in for something such as Woodfall Primus or Terastodon . You could even use use Meteor Golem . If you run Selesnya, you're already in extremely strong ramp territory as green loves to ramp with creatures and white loves to make creatures. Suddenly your Itlimoc, Cradle of the Sun , Gaea's Cradle and Cryptolith Rite look astounding. Not to mention Circle of Dreams Druid and, if you use enchantments to protect yourself such as a Prison / Stax deck, Serra's Sanctum . There's also Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx , Nyxbloom Ancient and Mana Reflection .

Hone in the strategy with Trostani, Selesnya's Voice and similar life-gaining creatures such as Suture Priest , Soul Warden , Soul's Attendant , Angelic Chorus and Essence Warden for a massive gap between you and your opponents.

I mentioned prisons; Norn's Annex , Ghostly Prison and Ensnaring Bridge are obviously staples. There's more, but I'm tired and not feeling the best today.

Anyway, there ya go. A skeleton for a down and dirty Selesnya deck. Go have some fun with it.

Since you are going for extreme ramp and board presence, I'd recommend Partnering with Halana, Kessig Ranger so that when they enter you can pay and have removal-on-a-stick, too.

Kodama of the East Tree would be nice but that's a trap. You'll be outed as the archenemy at the table on Turn 0. Sure you get to cheat a bunch of things into play, but that doesn't help advance your wincon. I'd rather see Halana in the Command Zone for that removal option, so that the creatures we are playing around with can get through and finish the game off quickly. You're going creature-heavy, so use them.

Elasar99 on Ghired: All Tokens Welcome!

5 months ago

No Parallel Lives on the deck?

One of the combos I played on my Ghired deck was Godo, Bandit Warlord and Helm of the Host . Godo can tutor the helm in order to create more tokens, and if you're able to equip Godo with it, it's game in 99% of the cases, since you get infinite combat phases and infinite Godo non legendary copies. Another option to go for infinite combat phases with the helm is Aurelia, the Warleader .

Another fun card to have in the deck is Luminate Primordial if you're able to make token copies of him and then populate them, getting to exile the most dangerous creatures opponents control.

Okay so he’s not a fatty per se but he’s sweet lmao. Stuff like Sheoldred, Whispering One Rune-Scarred Demon Luminate Primordial and then the general suite of board wipes (you’re in black and white you’ve got them all), a fair set of Counterspell s, and the entire Reanimate package.

Ancestral Statue gives you another creature that can bounce itself if you like. Luminate Primordial can deal with pesky commanders and you can bounce it with your other creatures to use it again. If you can squeeze it in, Cathars' Crusade is a great finisher.

TwelveOpossum on Odd Fate

Normally people between 36-40 lands, right? I'd say this one wants 38. Couple especially good ones: Myriad Landscape and Ash Barrens. If you're serious about the token theme, maybe also Westvale Abbey  Flip.

You might also consider these cheap spells: Preordain, Telling Time and Serum Visions. Truth or Tale also seems hilarious, especially with a little politicking.

I really like your choice of a bunch of modal cards (with odd mana costs, obviously) that can do a bunch of different things. I would add a couple more - Righteous Confluence is less popular than the blue and black ones but still pretty good (life sometimes matters a lot in Commander, this gains 15).

I STRONGLY suggest the Scry temples from Theros block. Temple of Silence, Temple of Deceit &Temple of Enlightenment all help you control the top of your deck and your colors. Isolated Watchtower is also pretty freakin good in your deck as green decks will often ramp, so it should often be live.

Some pretty good ones from EDHrec that contribute to your strategy: Prognostic Sphinx, Windreader Sphinx Angel of Serenity Luminate Primordial and especially Conundrum Sphinx Penance and Future Sight. Those last three, I really would try to find room for (holy damn, especially Penance).

Grave Betrayal, Entreat the Angels, Terminus, Overflowing Insight, are good bigbois that work (in different ways) with Yennett.

Then a couple general comments - you should probably try to include 2-3 sweeper effects and maybe 3-5 point removal (for a creature, I mean) effects, and a few effects that hit other permanent types (like Anguished Unmaking and Utter End). I think you'll probably want to include most of the cards I mention above that mention card draw, because it's REAL important to not get stuck on lands in EDH, and card draw's really a good way to avoid that.

A few cards that I think would be good cuts: Dowsing Dagger  Flip, maybe Anointed Procession depending (you probably would want 20-30 token effects to justify this), Aphetto Alchemist, Lich Lord of Unx also because it's expensive, Master Trinketeer which has an activated ability that's way too damn expensive, Retrofitter Foundry which again is way too expensive, Sram's Expertise is probably too low impact - Righteous Confluence would be a great replacement here, for example, Connive / Concoct and Discovery / Dispersal are both a lil underpowered too.

Those are some thoughts for now - looks real fun though, isn't this commander's complexity so nifty?
