Thada Adel, Acquisitor

Legendary Creature — Merfolk Rogue


Whenever Thada Adel, Acquisitor deals combat damage to a player, search that player's library for an artifact card and exile it. Then that player shuffles his or her library. Until end of turn, you may play that card.

ThatWeirdPerson - Boil was in the deck, and I originally had a lot more land destruction like that, but with the current EDH format, land specific destruction cards may be less useful than I expected. Stench of Evil and the like are also in the maybeboard, so if I get around to getting all the cards and can test it IRL, then we shall see. Sadly, Ral, Storm Conduit is the only current win condition in the game, if you get a permanent target and Radiate so for now it will stay unless the deck actually wins in another way.

legendofa - Thanks for the suggestions, and I like Crypt Angel so we shall see how that goes. There aren't a ton of creatures, but it does target specific colors and has protection so...who knows. Thada Adel, Acquisitor is an interesting idea and makes me wonder if I could leverage landwalking abilities in this deck way more to win games, so could end up being the only reliable win condition with the deck.

You already have most of the cards I was going to suggest... Painter's Servant helps a lot, but it's still very pricy. Crypt Angel might be worth considering. Landwalking creatures like Thada Adel, Acquisitor could also work.

Samothrace on Higure, the Still Here

3 months ago

Update: I have removed most of the infinite combos from the deck due to new house rules in my playgroup. While this deck was never scary fast it is very very reliable, with a creature tutor on the commander. To keep things centered on combat, I have removed Deadeye Navigator and Great Whale as well as Peregrine Drake.

I have swapped in Thada Adel, Acquisitor and Scourge of Fleets for Higure targets.

I have also put in a Drift of Phantasms as a means of tutoring for Arcane Adaptation

Stolen Identity and Thada Adel, Acquisitor would fit. Maybe Treasure Nabber .

I think you might be short on mana.

Not sure how important a turn 2 Grist is to you but Ebon Stronghold , Peat Bog , Hickory Woodlot and Havenwood Battleground could help. I use the Blue version as one of the few ways to get Thada Adel, Acquisitor out on turn two. Birds of Paradise and Gilded Goose would help as well.

Unlife on State of Mono-Colored Decks in …

1 year ago

Personal experience within my own playgroup? Mono-colored decks, any of them, can all be built very well even outside of cEDH. But, it may take some time to tune and refine them to that point. I've got Omnath, Locus of Mana , Torbran, Thane of Red Fell , Radiant, Archangel , Thada Adel, Acquisitor , and Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon , and they all play well with a variety of card draw, removal, ramp, etc. But, one of the best decks I play against is a God-Eternal Oketra deck. It can turn out an army of creatures incredibly quickly, almost always has a few cards in hands plus a nice suite of removal. I think that like any other EDH deck, mono-colored decks can almost always be adjusted and optimized and fiddled with to get a great end result, but it just take the time of playing with the deck to figure out what you need.
