Triumph of the Hordes Discussion

Why no Triumph of the Hordes? It's on-flavor for Ezuri, as he became corrupted by Phyrexia and the Horde triumphed. It's also an easy win in this deck.

There was a time that I was at 13 life. I had 3 cards in hand, and made myself the target of the table previously, and could win on my following turn. A friend, who I will call Sara just got a Craterhoof Behemoth AND Triumph of the Hordes out, on their turn, with 8ish creatures out, easily able to kill the table. This was the turn before mine, and I had basically no political power. A Korvold deck had the turn after mine, and seemed to be gripping his hand with all of the cards held together.
I'll call the Korvold player James. James told Sara to not swing at him this turn, or else he'd have to deal with her. She was initially like idc, I might give you another turn, because they had teamed up a bit before, and were on good terms. Assumedly he was just asking for an extra turn, however I knew Constant Mists was a popular card in those decks. I had to judge whether to play with the idea of pretending I had an answer and bluffing, or to attempt to force his possibility of having mists.
I decided I was gonna get tricky. Now I stated I can't win, Sara had me pinned, and shook hands. Then I told James I can't win, but because he was going to get another turn, I might as well make sure he wins, and I tap some mana to cast Swords to Plowshares on Sara's Phyrexian Revoker, which had named Squandered Resources. Now I had what I wanted. Just a few turns prior James said that Revoker stopped him from winning, and I knew there was a chance of him having a chance at winning, but this was a wheel and a few turns since, so I assumed he at least needed his turn. Additionally he cast a Splendid Resources since then, so I assumed he used it up.
As this was pre-combat, I had to force Sara to attempt to kill James and have James also have a fog, but this was my only chance.
Sara - I think you need to die now James.
James - No we had a deal!
Sara - No we didn't I said I might spare you a turn. Now you gotta go.
James - Trust me if you swing I will stop you.
Me - Wait you can stop over 100 infect? You have like 8 toughness, how much removal do you have?
Sara - Yeah I'm not scared, nice bluff (the table starts giggling which turns into laughter at James)
James - Screw it! Swing out, watch it.
And then, it happens, Constant Mists.
I got there, that swords to plowshares saved me from 100 trampling damage. I won the game next turn, with a fun little combo that involves Opalescence and Parallax Wave. It was a sweet game, and my favorite play to date.
What are your favorite plays? Any you made? Any deals? Any you've heard about or seen?

This looks like a lot of fun to pilot! What about Greater Good? When you have a bunch of tokens it can trigger Omnath’s second ability a bunch and keep your hand loaded to keep the train rolling. Also Triumph of the Hordes because infect is awesome and I’m a little bit mean haha. I have been considering building a Omnath, locus of rage deck so you’ve given me some good ideas +1 from me

Some good infect cards: Contagion Clasp, Contagion Engine, Grafted Exoskeleton, Phyrexian Juggernaut, Blightwidow, Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon (if you're not on a budget), Inkmoth Nexus, Corpse Cur, Core Prowler, Virulent Wound, and Crumbling Ashes.
I hope you have fun having no friends! ;]

Lands. I guess you could refer to my ramp category.
Spot removal and interaction. Imp's Mischief is awesome for mono black. I actually find Withering Boon really good. Black is really good at creature removal but what if that creature has a really good etb effect. That's where Withering Boon comes in.

- Oblivion Ring on battlefield
- Leonin Relic-Warder ETB targeting Oblivion Ring
- Resolve Leonin Relic-Warder ETB exiling Oblivion Ring
- Felidar Guardian ETB targeting Leonin Relic-Warder
- Resolve Felidar Guardian ETB exiling Leonin Relic-Warder and returning to battlefield
- Leonin Relic-Warder LTB is placed on the stack
- Leonin Relic-Warder ETB is placed on the stack targeting ? (I think as Active Player, you can choose the order LTB/ETB or ETB/LTB but could be wrong, for simplicity put it LTB/ETB, either way nothing to target with LRW, Oblivion Ring is still exiled until you resolve the LTB, but targets are selected when an ability is placed on the stack)
Yannik, Scavenging Sentinel should be fine because he delays the return of the LRW. The Yannik, Scavenging Sentinel also doesn't target, so you can choose what to exile on resolution so if something happens to LRW in the meantime, you can still exile another creature. The loop makes a large creature like an Inkmoth Nexus.
Oblivion Ring + Parallax Wave + Felidar Guardian will have the same trouble when the Oblivion Ring LTB/ETB enter the stack at the same time. But doesn't Parallax Wave + Felidar Guardian loop without the Oblivion Ring anyway? as long as you active Parallax Wave ability PRIOR to resolving the Felidar Guardian (and any 3 other creatures), then resolve the Felidar Guardian's ETB Exiling and returning Parallax Wave with 5 fade counters. Mentioning the Oblivion Ring just confuses it, I would remove that.
For infect beats, it is important to note that the primary Infect win-con is actually:
Lost Leonin + Arahbo, Roar of the World Eminence + Ajani, Caller of the Pride or Berserk or Duelist's Heritage (double strike). The other things you mention Grafted Exoskeleton/Triumph of the Hordes/Inkmoth Nexus are really secondary. Note: Triumph of the Hordes also turns ANY cat into a Lost Leonin + Eminence + Double strike for win.
I would get Ajani, Caller of the Pride back in, he's the best, not sure where he went. Hope this helps!

Whenever a creature deals combat damage to you, it's controller sacrifices it.
A stronger No Mercy, as this time it takes out Indestructible targets.
I am actually building an Oros, the Avenger "wraths matter" deck that is a voltron-pillowfort build.
In it, I have:
- 10+ ways to give Oros permanent deathtouch (equipment, auras, deathtouch counters, etc)
- Tutors to find my key pieces
- Pillowforts to slow aggression at me
- Reanimation so I can let him die in the grave, rather than pay the ever-increasing costs
- A total of 8 other wraths that don't affect Oros, such as Crux of Fate and Winds of Rath (deathtouch aura means he is protected)
- Ramp for days (10 manarocks)
- Powerful draw
It's all about keeping Oros out and blowing up the board every single turn. The extra wraths are for when he can't take out mono-white or partial-white creatures. Wincon is legit Commander damage. On a 6/6 vanilla body, that's 4 hits per person. So I have ways to give doublestrike and / or additional combat phases. Some, like Savage Beating do both. Savage Beating will actually win the game, similar to Triumph of the Hordes. 7cmc (5+2) = 24 Commander damage. Granted, it won't "win" the game, but it will knock someone out of the game. Kind of like Sorin Markov ;)
Having said all of this, I want you to build a card for a deck you are currently working on, and tell us about it :) Mine is private but once I finish it today I'll post in appropriate threads

Grafted Exoskeleton would work really well here. Karn's Bastion is pretty much a staple for any infect deck (Take that last part with a grain of salt). A good ol' Blightwidow or Cystbearer might be a nice addition. If you're willing to spend the money, a Blightsteel Colossus would be really nice. Tel-Jilad Fallen would work if you're playing against artifact decks. As for wincons, Triumph of the Hordes is a classic, but on a budget, Predatory Focus does the trick, too.
This deck looks pretty cool. I haven't seen many infect EDH decks so far, but this one looks decent. Good luck with it.
