Latest Decks as Commander

Stasis Discussion


3 weeks ago

I’m at a control player at heart (I knew I’m an awful person) so when I came across the decklist I was happy! First I’ll do some suggestions (I’m assuming you know about cards such as Demonic Tutor so I’m not going to mention cards like those). The first thing I noticed was that Professor Onyx was in the list, so why not make her an infinite combo with Chain of Smog. Another suggestion would be Toxic Deluge as it works especially well in this deck because of the commander’s ability. Finally, perhaps adding Stasis to really slow things down (once again I acknowledge I am a bad person).

Now for some cuts. The first cards that stood out to me were Ghostly Prison and Propaganda. I feel that these cards are weak for the power level you’re aiming for as the higher power level, the less combat damage matters. Another card would be Hero's Downfall. I’m not a huge fan of this card as it feels clunky. Maybe replace it with Deadly Rollick.

Those are a few suggestion! Take them or leave them.

Stasis that ought to wind people up.

Banding, great way of winding more people up.

I think the percentage of cards that you have in your deck that start loading up the graveyard may not be enough, but I need to play a couple of more test hands because I may have simply gotten bad draws. Stasis is a very interesting choice! I wish I had a Skullclamp in my collection to add to my deck. It fits in so well!

Guerric on Hatebears and the social contract

Generally the only things that universally violate the social contract are large quantities of mass land destruction and playing a cEDH deck in a non-cEDH pod. People will hate you for that. Most people aren't fan of "stax" effects either, such as Stasis and Winter Orb , since locking your lands down has a similar affect to MLD, albeit in the short term. People also generally hate mass discard strategies like Tinybones, Trinket Thief decks, because they want to at least have cards in their hands to play. People generally don't mind if you wipe their board, destroy their stuff, or play a strategic card that interferes with their gameplan (ex. playing Solemnity against a counters deck or Containment Priest against a Meren deck. That's just good play. People aren't also generally opposed to taxes or pillowfort strategies either- that's just a playstyle. Basically, if you reset an already long game by blowing up lands or keep people from doing anything at all on their turns as the main strategy of your deck, many players won't like it and will kill you early. People want to be able to play the game on their turns, and if they can't do much at all they'll be upset. If you just slow them down a little bit by taxing their attacks or shutting down particularly degenerate strategies, that's just fair play. As for things that depend on your table, that would be the gray category where infinite combos and Cyclonic Rift go.

In general, I think hatebears is fine in general if it doesn't devolve into stax, and the main things to avoid are mass land destruction and mass discard as major strategies for your deck.

Nice list! Got some inspiration from it for my own Karador deck. I dont think you need Gift of Immortality , Kaya's Ghostform and Swiftfoot Boots . Sure, your commander are central for your strategy, but the cost reduction does include commander tax, so it will always cost you 3 mana if you fill you yard efficiently. See my list for inspiration, Hermit Druid is a goddamn beast in a Karador list! Reduce your basic land count and include that guy for some serious self mill. I use 6 basics because i don't want it to be auto win, but feel free to go down to 1-2 basics to really abuse the hermit :). Eldritch Evolution targeting Karador (you can always recast him for 3) plays any creature with cmc 10 or lower from your deck. Yosei, the Morning Star with a sac outlet lets you Stasis  your opponent while tapping down all their stuff. Nethroi, Apex of Death can mutate from your graveyard, so as long as you mill that guy you have a way to play any amount of creatures with total power 10 from your graveyard any time you have Karador out :). Stitcher's Supplier is a great self mill card especially with a sac outlet.

Kismet , Frozen Aether , Smothering Tithe , and Stasis are non-negotiable imo.

Nice draft tho.
