Livio's Blessing

Legendary Enchantment

Whenever you exile a creature, it's controller draws a card and you gain 1 life.


I'm not entirely certain, but Livio seems to want to be built around ETB effects. Exile your own creatures, then bring them back into one massive drop; For example, Luminate Primordial would be an incredibly strong blink creature. Sure your opponents gain a ton of life, but you remove their biggest threats permanently. Additionally, as he has Partner, you can add in for something such as Woodfall Primus or Terastodon . You could even use use Meteor Golem . If you run Selesnya, you're already in extremely strong ramp territory as green loves to ramp with creatures and white loves to make creatures. Suddenly your Itlimoc, Cradle of the Sun , Gaea's Cradle and Cryptolith Rite look astounding. Not to mention Circle of Dreams Druid and, if you use enchantments to protect yourself such as a Prison / Stax deck, Serra's Sanctum . There's also Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx , Nyxbloom Ancient and Mana Reflection .

Hone in the strategy with Trostani, Selesnya's Voice and similar life-gaining creatures such as Suture Priest , Soul Warden , Soul's Attendant , Angelic Chorus and Essence Warden for a massive gap between you and your opponents.

I mentioned prisons; Norn's Annex , Ghostly Prison and Ensnaring Bridge are obviously staples. There's more, but I'm tired and not feeling the best today.

Anyway, there ya go. A skeleton for a down and dirty Selesnya deck. Go have some fun with it.

Since you are going for extreme ramp and board presence, I'd recommend Partnering with Halana, Kessig Ranger so that when they enter you can pay and have removal-on-a-stick, too.

Kodama of the East Tree would be nice but that's a trap. You'll be outed as the archenemy at the table on Turn 0. Sure you get to cheat a bunch of things into play, but that doesn't help advance your wincon. I'd rather see Halana in the Command Zone for that removal option, so that the creatures we are playing around with can get through and finish the game off quickly. You're going creature-heavy, so use them.

DreadKhan on Run Hans! Run!

I feel like Acidic Slime having Deathtouch is pretty annoying for this deck. Qasali Slingers does a similar job and won't kill Hans if they fight. There isn't much else that jumps out at me that solves problems and won't kill Hans. Woodfall Primus is certainly big enough that losing Hans might be acceptable, and even if it dies, you get it back to block with.

Thanks for your suggestions! Primal Surge is an interesting card, but I don't think that it fits this deck that well. I'm running 17 non-permanent cards, so the chances of missing a permanent with it is constantly considerable. It also costs ten mana and this deck does not generate that mana easily or early in the game.

Magus of the Order can be interesting way of tutor certain creatures in specific moments or Woodfall Primus to combo. On the other side, I think that it's very slow and vulnerable, because we will use this ability on the next turn. I guess that Natural Order , the Magus of the Order's sorcery version, should work better. I'm including this spell in the maybeboard.

Thanks again!

Have you considered swapping Aerie Ouphes for something like Woodfall Primus (blow up everyone's lands) or Putrid Goblin (cheapest persist creature in your colors)?

Woodfall Primus to combo with Renata, Called to the Hunt

Undergrowth Champion because he is also very VERY resilient in this deck

Dense Foliage is great protection for your creatures, but you'd have to see if this card has will interfere with any creatures that "move" or have "graft" like abilities, be aware that this card is symmetrical with the whole board however and not just your side, in that case i'd recommend Asceticism

cards like Phyrexian Swarmlord , Spinebiter , and Putrefax sound right up your alley.

to help your creatures get through as well, consider Bellowing Tanglewurm

Just clarifying something. As I understand it (and I could be incorrect), if you use Dimir Doppelganger’s ability to turn it into one of the creatures you plan on exiling from your graveyard, I do not think any of the etb effects of those exiled cards will trigger. Since Dimir Doppelganger is already in play when it changes into a copy of the exiled creature, it’s not entering the battlefield. For this reason (if it’s correct), I’d recommend just going with the biggest brutes green has to offer instead of stuff like Sundering Titan or Woodfall Primus. Just go with Blightsteel Colossus or Titanoth Rex or the like. You could use Sundering Titan for its “when this creature...leaves the battlefield” part, at least I think so. Again, get confirmation on all this before readjusting anything. I’d hate to lead you astray simply because I don’t have as good a grasp on the rules as I should. Otherwise, this deck is clever and well built. +1

Vertical on Golgari Deathpriest Aristocrats

This looks like a pretty solid deck, I built a Mazirek deck and so far I think it's my strongest. There are a few things Your deck didn't have that mine does, but your deck seems to be built for the long game, while mine is built to have one explosive turn and pretty much win then and there.

This commander loves to sacrifice things, but he shouldn't be the only one in this deck. Effects like Zulaport Cutthroat are very powerful in aristocrat style decks, and Moldervine Reclamation can be good for drawing.

One of my favorite sacrifice outlets that I didn't see on your board was Altar of Dementia which lets you mill your opponents potentially out of the game, and provides you with a free place to sacrifice your vast army! And if any of your opponents like to use a lot of graveyard recursion, throw in a Tormod's Crypt for a free sacrifice trigger and some graveyard hate. There's also Priest of Forgotten Gods which forces opponents to sacrifice, lets you draw and gives you mana!

If you want to go down the path of forcing opponents to sacrifice their creatures, effects like Grave Pact and Dictate of Erebos are fantastic. If you want something that can attack, Butcher of Malakir will be your new best friend. another card that can easily shrink an opponent's army is Archfiend of Depravity . If you do go down this path, throwing in things like Kothophed, Soul Hoarder will let you draw tons of cards off of opponents sacrifices.

If you're consistently having trouble finding creatures that generate tokens, I'd suggest throwing in a Fiend Artisan who has a sacrifice and tutor effect in one. If you're running some recursion, Jarad's Orders is a fantastic way to grab the creatures you need.

Well now you've sacrificed a bunch of things and your creatures are huge but you have nothing to do with them, so what now? One of the simplest ways to win is by using Rogue's Passage or something similar to make your commander unblockable and swing for lethal damage. If you want to stay on theme, Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord lets you drain your opponents fo ra ton of health with your creatures for a fairly small amount of mana as well.

If you want any infinite combos, throw in any creature with persist along with a free sac outlet. Probably the one that would be the most devastating to your opponents would be Woodfall Primus , as it can even destroy lands. When you sacrifice a creature with persist, two abilities go onto the stack, Mazirek's counter ability and the Persist ability. Since they are both your effects, you can choose what order they happen in, and you can choose to have the creature reenter the battlefield with a -1/-1 counter, and then remove that counter, and then you can sacrifice it again to repeat the loop. Check with your playgroup before you use this, as some people don't like having infinite combos in their games.

I know that was a lot and I'm sorry, but this deck was super fun and I love talking about it!
