Maybeboard


Hello everyone. I'm brewing this deck around on the least straightforward commanders I've created so far - Valki, God of Lies  . More importantly, though, I'm focusing on using the Tibalt side to push us through on the card draw and disrupt my opponents' strategies by stealing their stuff.

You'll notice a bit of a sacrifice theme going on here and that's because I'm trying to keep my opponents from making any considerable threats by either making them sacrifice with Dictate of Erebos or Plaguecrafter -like cards (Also going for a flavor-friendly strategy. It's not too crazy to think a devil would make his underlings throw themselves in front of an attack for him). I'm also going to have to defend Tibalt a lot so I need to get some value from my creatures dying as much as I can. I'm also including a number of mana ramp cards so I can get Tibalt out as soon as possible before the board gets a little too planeswalker unfriendly. Once I've done all we can with Tibalt (I'm assuming a max of 2 castings), Then I can focus on summoning Valki to disrupt and look at my opponents' hands as they will most likely be holding their best cards in the later game.

So this is what I have so far but if anyone has any recommendations just let me know! Valki's been pretty interesting to build around so I can't wait to see how it holds up in a game later this month.

Notable Combos:

Jokulhaups + Oblivion Sower + Tibalt, Cosmic Impostor

This is very hard to line up but if you cast Jokulhaups to get rid of all creatures (hopefully) and lands, Tibalt, Cosmic Impostor will be safe to use his ult to then exile all the fresh lands that just hit the graveyard. If you manage to have the mana, following it up by casting Oblivion Sower will then push every single land you destroyed and then exiled from a target opponent to your side of the field. It's a lot of work but if you can manage to pull it off, well... GG.

Tergrid, God of Fright + Wheel of Fate Or any kind of wheel effect. All your permanents are belong to us now.

Gameplay Notes:

The high costed Eldrazi are there as a last resort in case it is not feasible to cast Valki. They are beaters within a budget that I can use all that mana this deck generates to good use.

In the early game, if you don't drawn into lands/ramp. It's best to get Valki, God of Lies   as soon as possible to get a creature out and enable some sac'ing. Tibalt can later be cast by using Command Beacon 's effect.

Note to self - replace Mana Crypt and Dictate of Erebos for Everflowing Chalice and Fraying Omnipotence to scale power level down.
