Thousand-Year Storm Discussion

Ender666666 Thanks for the feedback! I think that I might end up cutting Contingency Plan for the Serum Visions. Not sure what I should do for the others though. I guess keeping Pirate's Prize might be too much of a pipe dream to have, as the idea for it initially was a combo piece with Thousand-Year Storm - since when it gets cloned, it kinda pays for itself with the treasures generated and also gives me more options because it draws me cards.

Love this deck! I've been getting back into MTGO recently and threw together a budget list. I'll need to take some inspiration from yours! Really like Visions of Beyond! One suggestion I have, however, is Thousand-Year Storm. I've been loving playing it with all the cheap draw spells followed by a Huge Comet Storm/Frantic Search untapping! Another ballin' card is Ral, Storm Conduit. It really adds up in damage.

+1 Friend!

I'm glad and surprised that a few people have taken interest in the idea!

Yes I could add more cards to this list. However this is intended to be a collection of single-card win conditions playable in any deck of those colors within a semi-casual EDH group. I would only add a card to this list if I observed it in action (through the many good YouTube channels), read a few testimonials or game reports on forums, or have experienced the card in my own playgroup.

There are a great many more "win condition" cards, but those require dedicated strategies that not every deck has. Examples include

Massive amounts of mana for Exsanguinate or Comet Storm ,

Huge quantities of creatures dying for Blood Artist or Syr Konrad, the Grim ,

a deck and hand full of instant/sorcery for Thousand-Year Storm ,

etc...

If there's an interest in win conditions for common deck strategies (Big mana, Creature swarm, Spellslinger instant/sorcery, etc...) I might consider making a separate list.

WARNING: TL;DR comment ahead.

@king-saproling: I apologize for my impatience & seeming like a stalker, sir; no intent on this at all. Anyways, Still not sure what to cut from those 3 decks? Maybe I can help?

Deck 3: You stated it can go from Cold to Hot/Hot to Cold & Weiß-Versa on a whim. Should I revert back to that build; w/ only minor changes to further the performance?

Deck 2: SO sorry about my statements; Docent of Perfection  Flip & Hammerfist Giant is better than I thought. These 2 back in; but, I've some ideas: Why not keep Karma + Kormus Bell + Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth all in just the same? Sunforger is great, but not truly incredible in Sevinne, the Chronoclasm . Potential Cut there. Elsha of the Infinite is stated to be amazing as hell; look at her builds. Keep. While Mizzix of the Izmagnus is incredible, He'd rather his own dedicated build, like Sevinne already is in the works of one of his own kind; and we've Thousand-Year Storm already. Chopped. Other notable inclusions worth keeping:

Jaya Ballard , Comet Storm (Why...?), Banefire , Time Wipe (Actually, maybe Azorius isn't so bad.), Winds of Abandon (But exiling even your Opponent's Swamps? Better than Armageddon .), God-Eternal Kefnet (WHAT?! He's practically a staple here.), Fanning the Flames (An X-Burn w/ Buyback? Back in.), Counterspell , Swords to Plowshares , Enlightened Tutor (All three of these are awesome no matter what. Keep^3), Scour All Possibilities (Scrying & Drawing is a good 241 here), & Echo of Eons (This is a permanent keep as so few Timetwister effects don't exile themselves right away. Unless you want Day's Undoing or Time Reversal , this is as good as limits can allow.)

We're at 112 (113 if we count Time Wipe ). Maybe you could find better cuts from what I stated please? Thanks. One deck remains; Deck 1.

Omnath, Locus of Mana still at 33 Cards over, The deck has one purpose; Unify both & ; as all 5 Mana Colors each had the masterful Trinity of Magic, Science, & Technology, cares much less about their own. Huge Prejudice over flight, Impurities, Anything that only counts as a creature within limits, is fine; & they blatantly Hypocritically used all those "Non-Creatures for themselves, & got away w/ it. Even long before The Ur-Dragon 's birth, even now, -Affiliated individuals don't give a care.

I'd like it if you cut 33 cards from this deck as well, all while keeping the theme of Magic, Science & Technology/Nature Technology Equality theme in mind for a & Mana Deck, please.

Finally, I might think of doing Atemsis, All-Seeing one last time. But I'm replacing my Deck entirely. Does Solemnity ring a bell? I tried to find the right Partner Commanders (C16); only to find all 5 colors have this property I can work with. But, Any suggestions for a 5 Color Commander that might help well w/ the idea of No-Counters Allowed Gameplay?

Sorry this is too much; I've no intention of being forceful. That said, I did help w/ some of the cuts. Now, king-saproling: Do you want to make some cuts for the 3 decks above alongside me

1: Omnath #1 Magic, Science, & Technology Unity Matters' Deck (Nature + Technology Themed.)

2: Sevinne Mass Burn Wrath, Non-perm Matters, & Self Protection Deck

3: Arjun Deck in question; you stated a build of this at one point was very great; albeit below 100 at the time. Should I revert back to that build w/ minor improvements?

4: What 5 Color CMDR would help w/ cards w/ Age Counters , Undying Counters , Charge Counters & Similar , & even after-death itself Phyrexian Unlife + Repay in Kind + Solemnity . Any ideas? Karona says no... XP ; Wonder if they also reject Experience Tokens , or even Energy Counters... (: You Know...)

Sorry if this was too much; I was just asking for one more favor to cut to 100 for said decks; not add more in please... X/

The reason you play Kykar, Pyromancer and Ascendancy is to get more value out of casting instants/sorceries especially Kykar because Spirits can be ramp. The Spirits/Elementals and draw/discard are bonuses for every instant/sorcery you cast. Which is good because the more value you can get out of the cards you cast the better your deck will be and the more fun game play will be.

Sevinne is very lackluster because you can only copy one spell a turn and that spell has to be cast from your graveyard. These restrictions are terribly slow since most flashback costs are a lot of mana and there's not enough good flashback cards to matter. If you want to play a spell heavy theme which is called "Spellslinger" then you're better off playing instants that copy other spells you cast or your opponents cast: Expansion / Explosion , Narset's Reversal , Reverberate , Increasing Vengeance . These are better than relying on Sevinne and having spells in your graveyard as well as having a way to cast them from your graveyard.

Thousand-Year Storm gives you the effect you want with copying instants/sorceries you cast and it copies any one you cast from hand or graveyard not just the first one you cast from your graveyard. Thousand-Year also copies the spell you cast equal to the number of spells you cast before it during the turn. This effect is called "Storm" in Magic and it's one of the most powerful mechanics in Magic. Mind's Desire is an example of a powerful budget card with Storm.


In the Mystic Intellect precon Elsha of the Infinite is a better card and overall better Commander General than Sevinne. You can cast noncreature/nonland cards on the top of your library with Elsha this includes instants/sorceries. Can cast sorceries on the top of your library as instants which with Spellslinger is very good. Elsha has Prowess, she gets bigger until end of turn the more noncreature spells you cast each turn. She can be a threat to do Commander damage by playing the Spellslinger theme.

You could change the precon into a Spellslinger deck with Elsha as General. With Elsha you don't have the restriction of playing cards that have flashblack instead you can play the best instant/sorceries that Jeskai can offer which does include some cards with flashback. Being able to cast instant/sorceries from the top of your library is better and faster than what Sevinne does. Elsha doesn't want a lot of creatures because her ability can't be used with creature cards, but some creatures who give you value when you cast instants/sorceries are good. This is an example of a budget creature base with Elsha:

Elsha works with Planeswalkers because a Planeswalker is not a creature card. Ral, Storm Conduit and Narset, Parter of Veils are budget Planeswalkers who interact well with instants/sorceries. Ral's -2 loyalty ability can copy an instant/sorcery you cast and he combos with Expansion / Explosion and other instant/sorceries that copy. Elsha works with artifacts which is helpful because mana rocks can be used for ramp to play Elsha/Thousand-Year faster and then afterwards when cast they count toward Elsha's Prowess.
