PartyJ on [S] Zedruu: Ascend.

Gorgeous alter!

I am playing a Zedruu deck too. I have to put my altered commander up there, but its extended and not even close to your version.

Did you consider these cards:

Monomanamaniac on Anowon - Rogue Tribal - $500 Budget

Great build overall. It's hard to think of what you should add or cut but i think your choices need to be cmc based. Your deck is currently sitting at 2.89, but if you can get it below 2.5 you'll be far more consistent. Stuff like Vanquisher's Banner and Coat of Arms are great, but they cost a lot and can bog down your turns. Keeper of Keys is another example of this, and a card I'm honestly a bit disappointed in. I wish it said beginning of combat because an upkeep trigger for monarch isn't very reliable. Knowledge Exploitation isn't really what i would be going for, even if it just costs its prowl cost it's not very exciting. If you really want to tutor for an instant or sorcery you should think of putting in Mystical Tutor , Merchant Scroll , Fabricate , Vampiric Tutor , or Demonic Tutor . You also seem to have a rather high concentration of equipment spells, might suggest removing a couple, maybe Bloodforged Battle-Axe for starters.

As for additions i might suggest some great rocks like Mana Crypt , Thought Vessel , or even Fellwar Stone . You could think of adding Changeling Outcast as a very cheap unblockable rogue. You could think about Drown in the Loch for that flexible removal. Then there's the ability to draw more cards with Bident of Thassa , or Reconnaissance Mission though you'd be flirting with that cmc issue again.

Besides that i can't think of much, and none of my suggestions takes budget into consideration. Seems like it's a very well put together list i don't think i could've put together a better one

Arcum Dagsson is a little pricey at $4 (USD), but from being able to fetch a Nevinyrral's Disk on endstep and untapping immediately with it, to putting Orbs of Warding into play in response to a Jaya's Immolating Inferno : this card's a superstar.

Grand Architect functions either as just an anthem to pump your team or a way to power out your artifacts--all at the low low price of 80 cents!

Thought Vessel , Mind Stone , Wayfarer's Bauble , Fellwar Stone , Sky Diamond , Burnished Hart , Dreamscape Artist , Myriad Landscape ... you could consider running any or all of those to improve/increase your ramp package.

I really like the concept! Keep tinkering!

Gattison on The Braided Noose (Gallowbraid Voltron EDH)

Metroid_Hybrid: Great advice, and I can't believe I forgot about Cabal Stronghold . =D

As far as Thought Vessel , I'm simply out of them for now. And Rite of Consumption is a great idea for a surprise finish, but it looks like I don't have any. I'll get one eventually.

Now for infect, well, good idea, but my playgroup doesn't really play any infect... like, at all. Which is too bad, but ce la vie.

I also checked out your deck and got a few more ideas from it, so thanks for stopping by!

I have a mean Mono-Black Voltron deck myself.. Mine is Commanded by Yargle, but most of the same rules apply..

First, the obligatory suggestion of Cabal Stronghold (and Cabal Coffers if budget allows)..

Secondly, most of your "Overkill" list (save for Ob Nixilis & Sorin) is pure chaff. None of it serves the goal of delivering lethal Commander-damage, whatsoever. I suggest you just drop them in favor of a mix of more "Reanimator" spells, a Thought Vessel , and even more draw...


You might be interested in Rite of Consumption in particular...

Something else to consider, is the subject of Infect ( Tainted Strike , Phyresis , & Grafted Exoskeleton )

Sorry if you've already answered this Q a million times, but there's no way I'm reading 66 pages of archived comments: what's up with your ramp package? Seems a little thin for what I'd expect. Arcane Signet , Wayfarer's Bauble , Thought Vessel , Fellwar Stone ... there are a million options to pick from these days.

Plainscycling is excellent and all, but raw card draw is usually enough to hit land drops. Above someone asked about Sram , of whom I know you're aware--really seems like he deserves a place.

Excellent brew you've got here, again my apologies for questions you've surely seen prior :)
