-6: Exile the top seven cards of your library. You may put any number of creature and/or land cards from among them onto the battlefield.
Xenagos, the Reveler Discussion
1 week ago
Well this wknds bulk playtest with Marisi showed some allstars. Gingerbrute was hilariously effective. Selvala's Stampede was unsurprisingly strong (just generically good). Sunforger of all things totally locked a game down in my favor. I wasn't seeing any need for mass-creature wipes to be honest, so I second not loving the Sunny Elspeth - the thing about this is that, in my meta, everyone else will be more desperate than me to get rid of all creatures, I prefer to use them as a resource: (I can just let my opponents do the sweeping for me & goad until someone is forced to wipe) the wipes that REALLY shined for me were the mass enchantment/artifact hate. I do LOVE your Elspeth, Knight-Errant suggestion, I now agree that it should windmill slap into my version of Marisi. Evasion + power & fast sweeper recovery or just an extra body are really nice to have on one walker. Actually will probably include Xenagos, the Reveler for some of those same reasons.

So here is the backstory:
Before Xenagos, the Reveler ascended to Godhood , he traveled the multiverse exploring the worlds to find the most indulgent of societies so that he might corrupt and sway them into destructive and hedonistic mania. Since he is a Planeswalker, he is able to draw power from worlds he visits. This is why characters such as Hautli are able to bring Dinosaurs into worlds such as Ravnica that don't have them. This will be the justification for why a Satyr God rose to power on Eldrain.
Silenos, God of Indulgence
Legendary Creature - Satyr God
Adamant - If at least three red mana was spent to cast this spell, gain control of target artifact, creature or Planeswalker with converted mana cost 3 or less. Untap it, it gains haste. You control it for as long as you control Silenos, God of Indulgence. If at least 3 green mana was spent to cast this spell, create three Food tokens. If both 3 red and 3 green mana was spent to cast this spell, creatures you control get +X/+X and trample until end of turn where X is equal to the amount of Food you control.
Sacrifice three Food and/or Creatures: Return Silenos, God of Indulgence from your graveyard to your hand.
"There are few things in life as pleasurable as food and sex. One of those is murder."
Make a NSFW MTG card. Mine definitely would be as it references sex. It can be subtle like this; A single word in the flavor text, or it can be a full on BDSM . Your choice.

ScionsStillLive, basically Heliod, God of the Sun proclaimed that he was superior to all other Gods. This helped fracture the Pantheon but not outright destroy it. The Gruul God went missing, and eventually Xenagos, the Reveler was able to cause so much chaos that he was worshipped and became Xenagos, God of Revels . Elspeth, Sun's Champion killed him, and something happened that caused Heliod to kill her in return.
She is now in the underworld and our return will pick up where her story left off.

noggynogworld, I'm currently testing Shamanic Revelation in place of Greater Good but after looking at Xenagos, the Reveler , I think he is right on the money with what I want to be doing. Makes a dude if I need a dude, or lets me refill my mana pool and do more stuff after I cast him. Seems solid, and I do love things that are more than 1 specific action. I'll slot that into testing. Also need to go through my mana base and make sure its covering my bases, since it currently isn't. Will do that today.

I'm really liking where your deck is at! I will say to throw in Mana Confluence and City of Brass to replace Darigaaz's Caldera and Survivors' Encampment because they have no funky clauses to activate them or make them work other than they deal 1 point of damage to you. Unless you're trying to keep the land base sort of budget.
As for Greater Good I feel that maybe it's alright at best, because you're not killing creatures that are big that often. I understand the value you can get from it. Kill Reyhan with it when she's big, transfer the counters over to Tana, draw a ton of cards etc. But if it only works when you can get value from it in that situation, I think it can be replaced with something that will give you value all the time, not some of the time. It's the reason I took it out of Kresh. I wasn't going to get the value I thought I would get most of the time. Maybe replace it with Xenagos, the Reveler if you're having trouble getting red mana?
I'm glad it's working out well for you though! Isn't the Vigor/BA combo funny? lol

Hey, since you upvoted my
Commander / EDH*
SCORE: 1 | 1 COMMENT | 47 VIEWS | IN 2 FOLDERS
deck, I wanted to let you know that I've been making revisions.
First and foremost, I removed Hazezon Tamar because he is too much money for a single card, his ability doesn't trigger right away, you can't ramp into him appropriately (Using stones means less tokens), and the tokens leave when he does.
I also removed the "Wincons" section, because I figure I am going to be generating a ton of hate from the other three players; If my creatures are constantly dying and my board is being wiped, creature-based win conditions mean nothing. So, instead I replaced them with boardstate protection to stop my guys from being blown off the face of the mat.
Lastly, I added in four sweepers myself, in the event I just need to reset the game and rebuild. Each of the sweepers will actually generate me value, such as Hour of Reckoning as it protects my creature tokens from being blown up.
I may consider dropping a few Superfriends, perhaps down to 4. I have the following ones for the following reasons:
- Ajani, Strength of the Pride : Tons of life and exiles the entire boardstate of everyone but me
- Domri, Chaos Bringer : Mana, mana, mana. Plus filtration if needed. The emblem is cool if he lives long enough to get it, too.
- Elspeth Tirel : Tokens, life and hate.
- Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury : Mana, light control, draw engine. I am mostly interested in her ability to generate free dorks.
- Huatli, Warrior Poet : Life. That's all she is in here for. The others are useful if need be, but I want her life ability.
- Xenagos, the Reveler : Mana out the ass and freecasting.
As you can see, there is a theme here: Mana & Life. Keeps the engines going.
If I drop any, it will be Freyalise and Huatli as they feel the weakest, being only viable for one option.
Ajani and Elspeth both generate mass amounts of life and have sweepers built in that give me advantage. They can also generate tokens, if need be.
Domri and Xenagos both offer me mana, give me tokens, and allow me to either filter the top four or merely play the top seven.
Frey and Hualti just give me a dork and some life. Frey can get me some serious draw if she sticks around, but Hualti is basically a one-trick pony.

@: LET'S BUMP IT UP 200 NOTCHES; Battle of Wits STYLE.
Two new Mu Yanling 's have been confirmed awhile back: Mu Yanling, Sky Dancer , & Mu Yanling, Celestial Wind . For Mu #1: if she makes it in, is she worth the re-add of Prismatic Omen for Infinite Draw? or is Mu Yanling, Celestial Wind decent enough? I, mean, one of the Elspeth's Ultimates gives your Creatures Flying as an Emblem; something Archetype of Imagination should be able to remove, though it's for another time.
1: Wrenn and Six : Recurring Lands to your Hand is great, one damage is okay, but giving your Nonpermanents (Instants & Sorceries) Retrace? AWESOME!
2: Xenagos, the Reveler : Lots of Tokens? No problem! You'll be netting a lot of ramp in the form of & Mana of any combination! a 2/2 Satyr w/ Haste is good too! Oh, & it's not like you'll need to use that Ultimate of his; it's completely optional!
3: Kiora, the Crashing Wave : Why did I cut her? She stops damage heading to & coming from any target. Does both Card advantage & Mana Ramp at one time; & the thought of a 9/9 every turn is just fearsome. Which would you give the Approval of, & Rejection of these three?
Heh. I just threw that in there as an alt. Solution in case the current Manabase might need minor improvement. Guess not... Ah well...
I ended up simply adding Mirari's Wake as a result of this. But I'd still like some thought on Night of Souls' Betrayal . Is it worth adding? I already have a list of Combos of Potential Consideration in my head as we speak; & one of the combos might include this...
I just wanted to bring these questions back up. Once I got them answered, then I'll leave the rest of the damn job to me; after all, The Mono- deck I'm planning has a Philosophy for WHY needs more Artifice (They're just fine w/ Enchantments though.), Flying Creatures ( Birds of Paradise much?), basically every point against WotC about & its conventional traits. I'll begin after I finish off my Morophon, the Boundless Human Tribal. Or, maybe my Exile Matters Deck... Who knows... Hyro… dorodorodoro…
(Okay, that part made no sense.)
