Mortal Combat


At the beginning of your upkeep, if twenty or more creature cards are in your graveyard, you win the game.

I love trying to make cards like Mortal Combat work; it can really get the juices flowing for finding other tech cards you may not see commonly to help the strategy; and that's also just fun to see.

I do think something like Commune with the Gods would be a great addition here.

That card doesn't stop players from winning the game. It stops players from losing the game.

So... cards like Felidar Sovereign and Mortal Combat still win that player the game. You cards checks for players losing the game. Not winning the game. So this card doesn't stop a player from winning with Thassa's Oracle. It does stop players from winning with mill and infect

Mortal Combat

Just kidding.

I was 9 or 10 years old playing Twisted Metal. That game was so much fun. There's also Skyrim that I keep going back to.

Aye, that card should be played - and it is so cool to see the nostalgia in peoples' eyes when cards like this hits the table :')

By the way, I don't remember, but have you ever considered Mortal Combat as a flavourful alternative wincon? I mean... that name! x)

This Commander absolutely screams Mortal Combat as an easy wincon

DrukenReaps on Irenicus' Experimental "Donations"

Acidarc safe was running creatures like Hypnotic Specter instead of Desecration Elemental. It gives a way to win regardless of the number of opponents but also feels lame and uninspired and doesn't really take advantage of donating them. Bouncing is a solid plan though. I was considering just more normal board wipes myself. Use something like Revel in Riches or Mortal Combat to win but I don't want to be overly reliant on just those either...

I haven't seen the cards and the lore match up this poorly since War of the Spark. The art is pretty good, though.

No 3 color Alternate win card. I feel cheated.

5 demons....a set where demons run crime families and only 5... and the two for my chosen color scheme too expensive manawise...why did you even bother wizards?

If you run monowhite angels or look to put your standard angel cards to work until autumn, don't sleep on Giada. Especially with MirrorBox.

Angel of Despair is gonna be good with Mortal Combat, Syr Konrad, the Grim and Wheel of Sun and Moon. Also makes Dimir self mill a thing when combined with Laboratory Maniac, Jace, Wielder of Mysteries and/or Thassa's Oracle.

Luxior doesn't specify that the planeswalker turned creature is Legendary. Does that mean I can have another planeswalker of the same name and type on the battlefield as long as Luxior is attached to the other?

ClockworkSwordfish on Rare commander build?

EDH as a format never especially enchanted me, so more often than not the only reason I'd design a deck is around an especially odd or challenging commander.

Blind Seer is an absolute house that nobody sees coming. He turns Flash Flood, Hydroblast and Blue Elemental Blast into to blow up any permanent, or basically a monoblue Vindicate. Douse can likewise counter spells at will. Messing with colours completely opens up a lot of old school hosers, especially those that freely blow up permanents in mono blue. You can see the list here: Colorblind.

Another one I'm fond of is the never-seen Iname, Death Aspect, who can rather uniquely dump 30 or 40 Spirits into your graveyard all at once. From there, Living Death, Lotleth Giant or Mortal Combat can seal the deal. More of a combo deck, it doesn't have as much variety, but I guarantee it's a commander you'll never see across from you at the table. FINISH HIM

On the challenging side of things, I'm a big fan of Haakon, Stromgald Scourge. Since you literally cannot play him from the command zone, the only ways to make him accessible are Command Beacon and the more recent Netherborn Altar. You have to really jump through some hoops to get him in your graveyard where he can finally be played, but having the hurdle before his funky ability can be abused is sort of a fun game-within-a-game.
