Saffi Eriksdotter Discussion

Don't let the artwork of a card stop you from playing it as your commander - just do an alter of the card. There are lots of websites/easy to use programs that let you create custom cards, so you can leverage these to create an existing card with alternate art. Then just print it out and sleeve it up (using a land or token as a backing to add rigidity to the card works great, especially combined with a double sleeve).
I have a custom art Saffi Eriksdotter which I run as my commander, but just have the real one sleeved up as well in case anybody wants to complain about proxies.
This means that rather than having the artwork be the only thing that holds you back, you can remove a limitation rather than working around it.

So.. I'm basically looking to reduce the strength of my current Karador deck to 75%-80% (or 8/10), as it's currently much too strong for the Meta I play in with my buddies. Perhaps make it more Toolbox or Graveyard focused (i.e. fill it up), and have more ways to win through combat rather than ONLY infinite combos (cEDH). Basically make it more fair and fun to play against (including for me lol).
My Deck List: My Tapped out Deck list link here https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/karador-edh-boonweaverhulk-combos/
Background: This is the first deck I ever built about 7 months ago (built 2 more since). However, the problem was I built it off of a cEDH deck (minus the expensive land base) and didn't realize how powerful it will be. I really don't need to fill up my graveyard either (i.e. Entomb Hulk, Boonweaver, etc works just fine). I'm basically looking to completely change my Karador format but I'm still relatively new to MTG (mostly played my buddies decks for the past 2 years).
The strategy of my deck is basically to combo out (go infinite) as fast as possible. My deck relies on a lot of the common Karador combo's pieces (I have many different possible combo's): Protean Hulk, Boonweaver Giant, Pattern of Rebirth, Karmic Guide, Reveillark, Saffi Eriksdotter, Loyal Retainers, Sun Titan, Acidic Slime, etc etc. Obviously, I'm planning on removing Hulk, Boonweaver + Pattern of Rebirth. I'll probably keep the Karmic Guide/Reveillark combo though.
I also run a strong tutor suite with Demonic Tutor, Enlightened Tutor, Worldly Tutor and other strong cards like Academy Rector and extensive hate bears Gaddok Teeg, etc etc - (I try to only use when in a bind). So it would make sense to remove these.
What happens when I play this deck in our Meta: is that I don't really interact with the board/players much, as I'm just trying to tutor and find my infinite combo's as quickly as possible. This tends to annoy some people as the game will have interactions between players all over and then all of a sudden - I combo out infinitely and win the game. So every game either comes down to A) Me winning.. or B) Each player focusing their attention on me to kill me as quickly as possible, which is understandable, as I can go infinite quite quickly. So you can see why I need to reduce this and try to make my deck more fun to play with for everyone (including myself).
About my Meta/Playgroup: We always play 4 way player EDH (sometimes even 6!). There are some pretty optimized and strong decks. I would say generally decks in our meta are optimized anywhere from 60% - 80% (or 6/10 - 8.5/10). Most decks are valued mostly under $700 (which is on the high end). Infinite combo's are not thought of highly, though there a few decks that run them but it's not their main/only win cons. Our games generally last anywhere from turn 10 - turn 13 - but some decks have gone off turn 4-6 and won. So it does vary but mostly, our games go longer.
My thoughts on how to reduce my decks power (adjust to my meta) and make it more fun below - : - Remove the most powerful tutors - Remove Protean Hulk + Boonweaver Giant/Pattern of Rebirth/Academy Rector and other infinite combos - Remove most of the hate bears - Add more dredge - Add more cards to win through combat (Craterhoof Behemoth) - Transition deck to a Karador Toolbox box deck (can win through combat) ?
Please let me know your thoughts any advice will be helpful! Feel free to include links to any Karador deck lists you think I might find useful. Sorry for the long post but looking forward to all feedback
Thanks guys! :) -Cory

I tinkered a bit with the idea of what if Hans Eriksson and Saffi Eriksdotter had Partner. As Rule Zero is an important part of the format, let's pretend this deck would be played in a group where it is allowed.

The deck is somewhat chaotic, but is held together by the powerhouse that is Sunforger. The Equipment makes a lot of the gameplan work and thus is very important card. I'd love to hear opinions on what I did here, and how I could streamline it a little more. I don't own the deck yet, but actually most of the cards are part of my collection, but are currently incorporated into multiple other decks.
Thanks a lot in advance for your comments, your feedback and your critique. Have a great day.

I wanted to make sure you knew that you couldn't get all viscera seer, melira and redcap all from protean hulk, it's 1 too many mana to pull at one time. With that being said, Saffi Eriksdotter could help you pull 2 sets of creatures. I've been brewing a hulk build and I'm experimenting with Slaughter Pact to get the combo started.

PhotogenicParasympathetic: The benefit of Sol Ring in a Baral, Chief of Compliance deck would be that it then helps cast your other mana rocks like Arcane Signet while leaving blue mana open for counterspells. I totally agree that it's less good, but I don't think it's bad.
RNR_Gaming: I have seen a few Saffi Eriksdotter lists that don't run Sol Ring becuase it doesn't accelerate her into play. But I would disagree with the logic, because Sol Ring helps to ramp into other parts of the combo as you've pointed out. I know a lot of Animar lists would take a mana elf over it though, since it doesn't trigger Animar, which I think is a legitimate call.
I would argue that the general rule is that Sol Ring fits into your deck and that the exception is that you shouldn't run it. But even the decks that do run it when it's not "needed" will see some value from.
