Arzais, also, Silence is a solid add if needed. I went with Teferi, Time Raveler instead when I considered the card. I wish Winds of Abandon was instant speed, but I prefer to have the mass removal over the singleton removal when it comes to having little removal in a deck.

Arzais on Omnath, A Song of Creation and Chaos

Today I swapped in Silence and Pact of Negation after playing 1v1 against a Niv-Mizzet, Parun combo deck. It seems my decks weakness is that it doesn't have a way to stop creature based super combos. These spells not only can be offensive on an opponents turn (silence on their upkeep) but can also be played defensively on my turn to ensure a flawless execution of the game plan!

I seem to recall NensouHiebara having an amazing knights list. Maybe you could give it a look?

I would reccomend dropping Silence and Icon of Ancestry, neither are very good.

Cloudblazer and Silence are both good choices. With Silence and Archaeomancer you can selectively lock people out of their turns.

Nice deck. :^)

Daedalus19876 on Toxic Relationship: Hapatra EDH [PRIMER]

berndibend: Two general reasons -- 1) I'm playing in less of a cEDH meta right now, so the artifact stax isn't as critical, and 2) I want to regain some of the former fun aspects of this deck that I feel I've been missing.

I haven't enjoyed this list as much as I could for the last few months, so I'm testing some changes. Archfiend of Ifnir + Generous Patron is a better combo for what I need than Squirrelcraft, I think, and I want to try Nature's Will as a combination Silence/Sword of Feast and Famine. Evolutionary Leap got very very silly with Liliana's Standard Bearer's printing, and is a good way to recover after a boardwipe. And I really want to find a slot for Harvest Season, dammit XD

Thanks for the feedback! I've deliberated a lot on whether or not to use Force of Will/Force of Negation, but I ultimately felt like I didn't have enough blue in the deck to consistently make use of their discounted costs. That's not to say I won't slot them in in the future though, so I'll keep them in mind. As for Swan Song, as great as the card is in most situations, giving my opponents a free flying chump blocker can be especially annoying in this deck with what it tries to do. I actually had it in the deck initially but eventually decided to swap it out for Silence as a pseudo counterspell and a combo enabler. Thanks for your help. :^)

SynergyBuild on Oko in cEDH settings

DeinoStinkus Honestly between that card (been tryna explain to people how stupid good it is, specifically the token part, the lands obviously make it an option, but the tokens make it great imo), Drannith Magistrate, Faeburrow Elder, Dovin's Veto, etc. I think white is simply going to change from the color you add for removal and a few hate pieces (Rest in Peace, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, etc.), now it will be a value color.

As is it already has a lot of new one-sided hate pieces, or draw engines like Mangara, the Diplomat (not saying it's a cEDH card, just pointing where white is heading), it already had Aven Mindcensor, Linvala, Keeper of Silence, Silence, etc.

Adding in Drannith Magistrate and friends from newer sets and you can see high-value hatebears that compete on a whole new scale than older ones, giving tons of new staples to the format, and warping deck archetypes. Magistrate was so good it made Kess, the list that with Consult and Flash decks all over the format (pre-ban), it was tiered as high as Najeela and TnT (Kenrith wasn't around) as one of the top 3 decks, but after it was slotted into every deck it really hurt Kess, despite being mostly an answer to commander-focused decks.

Value in cards like Smothering Tithe and Keeper of the Accord changes the game a lot too, giving white a powerful splash color for decks just looking to play the most powerful threats. These cards can do insane things, and feel like white's equivalent to Seedborn Muses, Rhystic Studys, etc. Now I feel like red's Dockside Extortionist, while busted, just doesn't give as much value outside of storm and combo, and red just doesn't feel like it has a great long game, and white does.

I think that because red has gotten Conspicuous Snoop it is getting much better combos and with Goblin Recruiter being a one-card, easy win it shows red is still finding interesting synergies, I'd actually say that Black, White, and Red are getting closer.

RambIe I think it is pretty interesting to look at each color like I did above and it seems you and your friend did, but as power creeps up and up, I think the net result is that each of the colors becomes more powerful, and the end is that a 5c or 4c pile (As is I doubt TnT would ever be phased out) becomes the best deck, as we continue to see pushed 5c generals and the decks get more insanely based on just whatever the best cards are rather than synergies.
