Don't Blink, or You'll Miss It!

Commander / EDH GWU (Bant)


This deck is a new idea that I had; when I saw Chulane, Teller of Tales, I knew that I must make a deck with him as the general, but I had difficulty in finding a theme for such a deck, until I realized that there are many creatures in this game with abilities that trigger when they enter the battlefield, so I decided to make a deck that featured such creatures.

It will take far too long to explain why each creature is in this deck, but the majority of them have abilities that trigger when they enter the battlefield, although there are several who do not, whom I spell specifically explain. Seedborn Muse and Skyward Eye Prophets are in this deck because they are too good to not be in any deck that supports their colors. Drogskol Reaver and Horizon Chimera are in this deck because of their synergy with Laboratory Maniac, who is one of the alternate win conditions that this deck has. Roon of the Hidden Realm, Emiel the Blessed, and Mistmeadow Witch are in this deck to provide repeatable "flickering," and there is a benefit to the delayed returns that Roon and the witch provide; while Emiel's ability allows creature to avoid targeted destruction effects, it does not allow them to avoid mass destruction effects, but the witch's ability does. Biomancer's Familiar is in this deck to decrease the cost of the activated abilities of creatures who have such abilities, and Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy is in this deck for his synergy with Basalt Monolith, which provides infinite colorless mana, with which I can use Emiel's ability infinitely and "flicker" a creature as many times as I wish, which allows for insane effects; for example, I can use Cloudblazer's ability to draw every card in my deck, which will allow me to win the game if I have Laboratory Maniac on the battlefield; if I infinitely flicker Inquisitor Exarch, I can reduce all of my opponents to 0 life and win the game; I can infinitely flicker Craterhoof Behemoth to make my creatures infinitely powerful, which shall also win the game for me. Peregine drake also forms an infinite mana combo with Emiel, as well. Vizier of the Menagerie will allow me to cast any creatures whom I find with Brutalizer Exarch, and, if I execute one of the aforementioned infinite mana combos, I can summon every creature card in my deck, which would obviously be very good.

Since cards such as Torpor Orb, Hushwing Gryff, or Hushbringer will entirely ruin this deck's strategy, I do have some non-creature cards in this deck to handle such threats, but they are few in number, so I shall need to use them, wisely.

True Conviction, Mirari's Wake and Privileged Position are simply too good to not have in any deck that supports their colors, and Aura Shards, Conjurer's Closet, and Panharmonicon have obvious synergies with this deck, as well.

I wanted to put Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath in this deck, but I am not willing to spend too much money on him, and I also may possibly use End-Raze Forerunners instead of Craterhoof Behemoth, depending upon whether or not I wish to spend such a great amount of money. I also had originally wished to put Yasharn, Implacable Earth in this deck, but the fact that the cards that it finds go to the player's hand and not the battlefied make me disregard it in favor of both Wood Elves and Farhaven Elf.

What does everyone else think of this deck? Is it not an interesting idea?
