You can play lands just fine. You just need to be able to cantrip over them. If I built a deck as you describe, it would feature Lich, Lich's Mastery, Lich's Mirror, and Platinum Angel, because we will not end up life positive. I would choose an esper commander in order to have access to artifact tutors such as Treasure Mage and enchantment tutors such as Academy Rector, as well as recursion, lifelink/lifegain, powerful black tutors, and blink/flicker effects. Sharuum the Hegemon would be my commander of choice as we can flicker him to recur our combo pieces. I like your idea and look forward to seeing it develop.

Sharuum the Hegemon targets a clone artifact in the graveyard is an infinite loop.

Suppose you target Sculpting Steel in the graveyard, "as it enters" you choose to become a copy of Sharuum the Hegemon, on state-base-action you have to send one to the graveyard due to the legend rule; then trigger ability of Sharuum goes onto the stack, you can then return either Sculpting Steel or Sharuum the Hegemon back from the graveyard depends on which one you let it die. Repeat for infinite life lose from Disciple of the Vault

ChaosClaws Remember that Sharuum the Hegemon + Mirrorworks + Ashnod's Altar gives you infinite mana. After that you play Sensei's Divining Top, copy it. Tap the original one to draw a card, then tap the token one to draw the top that was put on top of the library -> you net 1 card from this process. Repeat to draw the entire deck with infinite colorless mana and do whatever you want.

I love the deck and have constructed most of it myself, and have been practicing piloting it. Remembering how many cards interact with each other is really fun although confusing. One combo I didn't understand was the mixed combo of Sharuum the Hegemon + Mirrorworks + Ashnod's Altar + Sensei's Divining Top. Don't you need to use Krark-Clan Ironworks instead of Ashnod's so you can sacrifice the top and renaimate it infinitely to get your draws? Lots of brainpower required to explain and play out these combos, just making sure it wasn't a type and the combo works differently. Thanks!

I suppose that I should not be surprised that Jace, the Mind Sculptor is being reprinted in this set, but I still would rather that WotC had reprinted another planeswalker; at least he shall be less expensive, now.

Another reprint of Baleful Strix is great, but I wish that it had been an uncommon, because it is a waste of a rare spot in this set, in my mind. On that subject, I do like how Sharuum the Hegemon has been downgraded to a rare for this set, since I believe that she was not sufficiently powerful to be a mythic rare.

The alternate artwork for Sword of War and Peace is awesome, but I would rather have had any of the other swords in its place; hopefully, they shall also be reprinted in this set.

Sculpting Steel is another very nice reprint; I had been hoping for a reprint of Phyrexian Metamorph, but this is very close to that.

I also very much like the reprint of Lux Cannon; I already have one in my Atraxa EDH deck, but this shall make it easier to obtain a foil copy, which would be very nice.

I was dragging out a game with my Sharuum the Hegemon deck because combo winning (I’ve since stripped the combos) always felt bad to me.
I asked the table “I have a game winning combo, do you all want me to end it?”
I’m at 17 life, but feeling good. There’s a Purphoros, God of the Forge deck.
The table agrees it’s time to end the game, so I tap completely out to get my combo going. The purphoros player plays Lightning Bolt + Price of Progress to lethal me for exactly 17 (I had 7 nonbasics in play). To this day, that game is the greatest and most satisfying loss I have ever suffered.

From experience: Try building a deck in your colors that does something your colors are absolutely not supposed to do.

For example, I love esper, but esper's de-facto playstyle is control -> I win combo. So I built a battlecruiser deck around Sharuum the Hegemon that only wins the game through combat. Obviously, being in esper, there's some cards you just can't get away from, but this gives the deck more of a "homey" feel (doing what you've come to love about the color combo), while still pursuing a very "alien" strategy.

Something like Olivia Voldaren control (typically more of U/W's thing), or Chainer, Nightmare Adept reanimator (while reanimator IS black, playing big creature decks is typically a G thing). You could also try Mogis, God of Slaughter stax, although that deck in particular is VERY likely to get you targetted, because it plays on a very high power level.

  1. Luckily I have 2 brothers that got me into MTG and I can play against.

  2. They play a variety of decks with one focused on playing combinations of the best creatures e.g. Kaalia of the Vast and Sheoldred, Whispering One. Whilst the other one plays only value and combo decks such as Lord Windgrace and Sharuum the Hegemon.

  3. The play that got me with Lord Windgrace was when my tribal Dragon deck actually had no way of damaging him through a Glacial Chasm. So I now always include either ways to negate damage prevention, land destruction or graveyard hate to stop the infinite looping through the graveyard.

  4. It is now a 50% chance instead of a 5% chance.

  5. An 8.
