Love it. +1 upvote from me.

As for card suggestions, have you considered Grid Monitor ? It's a similar effect to Steel Golem which I see you have included. Pyromancer's Swath is another great one and can just end the game for whichever poor soul you drop it on since they have to top deck a way to remove it and enchantments can be especially hard to remove. Mindmoil can be similarly difficult to deal with and can disrupt a lot of people's strategies. Additionally, as a piece of red ramp, Alpine Guide can be great because you get the land and your opponent gets nothing (and if they have mountains it gets really good).

Finally I just have to mention a pet card of mine, Mages' Contest . It's a red counterspell that no one sees coming and can lead to some fun games of chicken with your opponents (and gets really good in a deck like this where your opponents will likely have already lost a lot of life to your Blim, Comedic Genius , so even if they bid more life than you it can still leave them dangerously low if they play it wrong).

Hopefully those suggestions are helpful!

Mystic Reflection

This card seems pretty wild, being kind of a preemptive (and non-Disenchantable) Metamorphic Alteration. If you foretell it on one turn, it only takes one measly mana to use it in response to something on another turn. What kind of tricks can you think of using it for?

  • Grave Peril-esque pseudo-removal, turning an incoming commander (including Lord Windgrace) into a random 1/1 token. (Like being elk'd, you could cure this with flickering.)

  • Force someone to copy an unpleasant creature, like Steel Golem. Sadly, no Phage the Untouchables tho

  • Most obviously, use spells/abilities that bring in a lot of creatures in one go so that they all enter as a copy of something strong. One awkward thing here though is that an opponent could ursurp the reflection by getting in something of their own at instant speed. -inclusive commanders I can think of that qualify are Oona, Queen of the Fae and Nevinyrral, Urborg Tyrant, plus Tana, the Bloodsower & Nadier, Agent of the Duskenel with an appropriate partner. (Note that e.g. The Locust God is AFAIK underwhelming here since its triggers are separate; you'll only get a copy out of the first token.)

  • Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer could use it as an inexpensive (if somewhat risky) way of getting a token copy of something that his other tokens can then copy in turn.

  • Kind of narrow, but you could get extra value by having creatures with on-cast triggers like Mockery of Nature come in as a copy of something with an ETB trigger, getting you both triggers at the end of the day. (You could also do something like having a creature cast from your hand come into as a copy of a Dread Cacodemon to qualify for its ETB, but you could do the same with any creature card Clone variant.)

You might like these: Bone Miser, Avaricious Dragon, Bag of Holding, Endless Whispers, Pain Magnification, Memory Jar, Anvil of Bogardan, Ruby Leech, Andradite Leech, Steel Golem, Rust Elemental, Xathrid Demon, Vibrating Sphere, Colfenor's Plans

Also heads up Treacherous Blessing will get sacked as soon as you target it with Blim, but maybe you intend for that to happen? 3 cards for 3 is decent value after all.

TheGiftedBard on Picking the right precon

4 months ago


I’m fairly new to the game and new to edh, my apologizes if I’m not in the right section.

I’m currently looking at the precons and there’s a few I’d like to try but right now I think that getting just one is probably smarter in case I end up not liking the format.

In all the precon I looked at, these are the one that my lgs still have. I’m gonna list them one by one with a quick reason why I’m interested by them.

Commander - Devour for Power - The Mimeoplasm: I do like the idea of dumping stuff in my graveyard to basically make my commander into whatever I need for a particular situation, I recently bought a small collection with a Sheoldred, Whispering One, Mortivore, Golgari Grave-Troll, Lhurgoyf and Hermit Druid.

Commander - Political Puppet - Zedruu the Greathearted: The idea of casting curses on my opponents and giving them creatures to screw them over seems terribly funny and diabolical. Switching my Steel Golem for Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre would be a win for me even if I end up losing the game.

Commander 2015 - Call the Spirits - Daxos the Returned: Building an enchantment deck seemed fun and I also have cards like Sorin Markov with his -3 and cards line Debt to the Deathless or Exsanguinate in my collection for alternative way of winning the game.

Commander 2015 - Seize Control - Mizzix of the Izmagnus: It’s probably not the main goal of the deck but casting instant and sorcery with Talrand, Sky Summoner or Murmuring Mystic and having Crackling Drake on the board to swoop in with a bunch of flying drakes and birds on the board made me laugh.

Commander 2015 - Swell the Host - Ezuri, Claw of Progress: Ezuri just looked so badass and flooding the bord with a bunch of 2 and 1 power creatures and adding stuff like Craterhoof Behemoth and Beastmaster Ascension or using Triumph of the Hordes or even buffing them up with Ezuri + some proliferate triggers looked like sometimes that could be very scary for the table.

Sorry for the long post but There’s so many choices that I got lost and confused on what could be better a first deck.

Thanks for the help.

MagicMarc non-creature spell means any spell that isn't a creature, not any spell that isn't a permanent. As for the poster's question, lots of EDH decks hinge on a similar giving-opponents-bad-cards theme, so I would highly recommend checking out the EDHrec page for Zedruu the Greatherarted ( and the one for Blim, Comedic Genius, ( as those have a lot of great cards to consider for the deck. Strategy-wise, I would recommend approaching the deck not solely focusing on killing your opponent by giving them Nine Lives-esque effects, but instead on a more stax-esque playstyle of using cards like Steel Golem and Pyromancer's Swath in order to disrupt your opponent as much as possible.

I would definitely run Ashiok, Dream Render as it is amazing in your game plan. Other than that, maybe a Ghostly Prison type effect to slow the game down or Force of Negation as you have a lot of blue spells and sometimes countering one more thing can be vital. Maybe Midnight Oil or Steel Golem as some more donate cards. I love the overall look pf the deck, just needs a bit of fine-tuning.

Zedruu is always fun. It seems you’ve gone much nicer in terms of gifts than I went with my Zedruu, Giver of Chaos. Have you considered presents like Rust Elemental, Aggressive Mining or Steel Golem?

If you want to check out my Zedruu deck for some more inspiration, it’s based on giving out gifts and swapping permanents around the board, with 4 cards that are alternate wincon cards since Zedruu herself isn’t the best at winning games. (Laboratory Maniac/Jace, Wielder of Mysteries, Felidar Sovereign, Aetherflux Reservoir)
