DreadKhan on Pattern Recognition #187 - Tuck

I don't think I've ever used Primal Command to just make something 'go away' that way. Lots of mana for the effect, but a funny trick to have up my sleeve.

Tucking is pretty nasty I find, and I've got an abiding interest in finding a way to make the land tuck of Plow Under relevant in Legacy, as it should be a brutal, game ending play for 5 mana, in a color that can hit that turn 3 reliably.

I noticed you had Prophet of Kruphix in your future section. Unfortunately, that card is banned in commander. Of course, if you are playing with friends in your own play group, you don't have to mind the ban list lol. If you want another big flashy fish boi, Pearl Lake Ancient is a pretty good one. Also, I feel like a deck like this could use more ramp, such as Explore or Explosive Vegetation or anything you prefer. Finally, some more all around great cards in green are Genesis Wave , Primal Command and Lurking Predators as well as Finale of Devastation , and The Great Henge if you aren't too concerned about a budget.

Heliod's Intervention seems like it could be really good. If you put more creatures in here Inscription of Abundance would be helpful Kenrith, the Returned King would be a decent mana sink Laquatus's Champion would be really useful. Orzhov Guildmage Primal Command

Practically any Golgari commander could work, but Belbe, Corrupted Observer from the new set was what came first because of her ability to generate mana "for free" once a turn with cards like Lim-Dul's Hex.

Basically, you would use tutor chains to go get Ugin's Nexus, and something along the lines of Krosan Grip. You'd blow up your own Ugin's Nexus, and then use Mirror of Fate to get it back from exile, and cards like Gaea's Blessing and Primal Command to get back your Mirror of Fate. You would make sure to only put cards on top that you wanted, and play enough draw spells to draw back the essential pieces, and the mana given for each new turn would take care of that. Incidentally, the Lim-Dul's Hex would eventually kill everyone else.

Oh I'm not saying you shouldn't have snapped it up.

You might think about tweaking it if you are planning to play it.

I would replace Sheer Drop, with 2x Declaration in Stone, and Oust, and Primal Command with 2x Exile
