A Merman I Should Turn to Be

Commander / EDH Control Mono-Blue Pauper



Beware the Seasinger 's haunting melody!

This is a Pauper EDH deck designed to steal the largest threat and control the board. Pauper EDH, as you may or may not know, features an uncommon creature as the commander and has 99 commons filling out the rest of the deck. Our commander, Seasinger , requires two things to successfully operate: your opponents controlling islands and being able to reuse her ability. To achieve this the deck has myriad ways to convert lands and to untap permanents. It also features a swath of responses to keep the board manageable. To make sure we don't run out of steam a majority of the cards are cantrips/cyclers and the deck sports a small array of card draw as well.

The deck contains two combos currently:

The only real downside to the deck is its weakness to aggro. If you have any suggestions please leave them in the comments; I would like this to be as powerful as possible

I had the opportunity to try the deck out in a 5-player game last night. My opponents were using the following commanders:

The game was pretty tight. Zameck Guildmage was ramping out of control and making giant beaters so I used my resources to keep him from getting out of control. I was able to do a couple cool plays where I tapped my commander to steal his attacker, Ghostly Flicker it to untap it and keep it (new instance of the creature), untap my commander and steal another attacker, then block the remaining two with his creatures, killing them all.

Changeling Titan was a behemoth smashing people for near-lethal commander in one blow and the threat of taking it kept it from swinging at me. Late game after Changeling Titan and Orzhov Guildmage died I was able to do some more combat tricks to stop the Nyx Weaver 's assault on me and kill all of his creatures and then stole the Zameck Guildmage 's last beater afterwards to finish them both off. All in all a very fun game.
