Rapid Hybridization


Destroy target creature. It can't be regenerated. That creature's controller creates a 3/3 green Frog Lizard creature token.

I agree with your assessment, DreadKhan, but do you think those spells are preferred over Pongify and Rapid Hybridization in cEDH?

Would appreciate some feedback on my Aegar burn deck:

Thunder Dome

Commander / EDH Triton


At the moment it’s a bit hard finding cuts for cards. I want to add in Rapid Hybridization/Ravenform effects to provide bodies for drawing off of Aegar. If any cards seem lackluster I’d happily consider swapping them out!

Thanks for your comments Basshunter!

I will definitely consider Sudden Substitution; honestly I've not ever come across this card so didn't even know it existed. Steal Enchantment sounds interesting as well and is cheap to cast; also worth considering. Especially since the remainder of the deck is more focused on stealing opposing creatures. I considered adding Pongify/Rapid Hybridization before, but at the time felt I'd rather steal opposing creatures than destroy(/replace) them. Sure, the low casting cost of these spells is epic for what they do, but still ... I'll give it some more thought.

This deck has certainly seen its share of action. I've played it against my group of friends, and I've played it at my local shop; usually as part of a group of 4 players. At the shop, it lost more often compared to the win-loss rate amongst my friends, because I have less knowledge of what I'll be facing there. You're correct that the main reason for the losses are the lack of alternative win-conditions (though I should point out, that copying other stuff than Keiga has saved my ass a number of times too).

Thanks again for the feedback!

Hi NV_1980,

I klicked through some of your decks and this one got me. I generally like the idea of stealing stuff. And i never thought about copying Keiga, the Tide Star will give you a death trigger, thats sweet!

Here some ideas:

Did you play this deck some times? I think it could have a lack of impact. When a player loses, you lose his creatures aswell. You have to rebuilt and steal other stuff...Winning could be really hard with this deck and it is depending on your opponent. If you play against eldrazis, GREAT! But if you play vs token/land/control/...-decks, you dont have stuff to steal.

I think this deck needs a Plan B...but I dont have an idea yet

Personally I find 35 lands to be the minimum I like to run. Rogue's Passage and Reliquary Tower have always served me well but you could also just do 2 more basics.

Ezuri's Predation seems like a shoe in for this commander. Avenger of Zendikar would be good too. Biovisionary if you don't mind alt win-cons. Awaken the Woods and Arachnogenesis maybe?

I see a distinct lack of removal here, I like to run at least 10 removal cards. Otherwise you are kind of just at the mercy of your opponents. Ezuri's Predation that I already suggested can be one but here are some others- Aether Channeler, Perplexing Test, Beast Within, Rapid Hybridization, Reclamation Sage, Terastodon, Acidic Slime, Krosan Grip, Pongify, Return to Nature are all decent options. Some of these are good targets for making copies of too, which could get nutty with say Ezuri's Predation...

I think you could safely cut Raff, Weatherlight Stalwart or Balmor, Battlemage Captain, mostly because I don't think you're running enough of a volume on Instants and Sorceries to consistently. Since you're playing a very creature heavy strat, there are a variety of board protection effects you could run, depending on your budget:

The last 3 options aren't very budget, but Heroic Intervention and Akroma's Will are very helpful cards in EDH. If your play group is cool with it, you could always proxy them before purchasing.

Additionally you could add a couple more removal effects like:

The more you play the deck irl, the more you'll get a feel for what effects you like most and what synergizes well. Playing 5 colors as a new player is a bit ambitious, but kudos to you for taking it on. To make your play experience a bit easier, I'd recommend trying to make as many things in your deck be 1-2 colors as often as possible to reliably cast things.

Welcome to MtG and happy brewing!

Portent, Crawlspace, Web of Inertia, Dream Tides, War Tax, Glacial Chasm, Monastery Siege, Cryptic Command, Extract, Portcullis, Dissipation Field, Overburden, Archmage Ascension, Frozen Aether, Reins of Power, Rapid Hybridization, Siren's Call, Cyclonic Rift, Mission Briefing, Reality Shift, and Resculpt are just a few you could potentially use. You can very easily go creatureless if you want to. You just have to lean on different win conditions and use cards like Ward of Bones /etc.
