Bellairs on Emiel The Blessed One [Primer]

Looks fun!

Workhorse goes infinite with Emiel. Infinite ETB triggers. Infinite mana with Heartstone out.

Charming Prince is a neat card. You don't go infinite with it, but if you're against decks that permanently steals cards (Etali, Primal Storm, Xanathar, Guild Kingpin, etc) this can get them back. And if you have enough mana, you can bounce it repeatedly to save creatures from boardwipes.

Be careful with Yisharn, its ability prevents you from going infinite with Brood Monitor, since you have to sacrifice the eldrazi for mana.

You may want to consider adding some low mana ETB creatures for tempo. Right now Emiel is cheaper than most of your pay off creatures, so you're going Ramp -> Turn 3 Emiel -> Turn 4 Creature (4/5/6 drop) -> Turn 5 actually getting to activate Emiel for extra value. Wall of Blossoms, Elvish Visionary, Wall of Omens, etc are good chump blockers, replace themselves, and can accelerate you earlier than the big creatures that are targets for removal.

One thing I don't get is why Polyraptor is there, it's a good card but I don't see much synergy with Emiel?

I also have Heartstone for the Emiel and Workhorse combo if I don't have the ability to give him an additional +1+1 counters.

Gashillus that’s awesome! Congrats on what sounds like a great tournament! If you have a list of what you’re running, I’d love to take a look.

Good call on Workhorse, I ran that for a long time.

Another budget solution would be to lean into Village Bell-Ringer with mana dorks that tap for 4+ mana like Selvala, Heart of the Wilds, Circle of Dreams Druid, and Priest of Titania. Just a thought if you’re looking for budget combo win cons :)

so i use Workhorse in my grenzo deck and was thinking it may help not sure but it lets you turn 1 grenzo activation into being able to play your whole doomsday pile with kiki as second from the bottom

fun deck :) Some suggestions that could be good role players here are cards that put counters on creatures on ETB and similar, so Good-Fortune Unicorn , Renata, Called to the Hunt , Juniper Order Ranger and Felidar Retreat . And Crystalline Crawler and Workhorse would be excellent mana dorks ;)

also not sure if you want to go in that direction but some neat combo pieces would be the new Heliod, Kitchen Finks and Woodfall Primus.

You aren't running every unicorn, and yet you chose to run Revered Unicorn over some other choices? For shame.

Check out my unicorn deck that I made about two years ago if you want some ideas to make your unicorns reign supreme. Unicorns! (My EDH Masterpiece)

I've also just discovered that Workhorse does wonders with Emiel. (and a bit of +1/+1 counter support)
