Glissa the Traitor - Armies of Cans

Commander / EDH BG (Golgari)


So this was my first commander deck and I have put a lot of improvements and eventually money into the deck.

It has gone through several iterations, first, it was a deathtouch deck with viridian longbow/thornbite staff, then it moved onto being an eggs deck that draw a lot of cards for a green-black deck. Now it is a Controlling Midrange deck base around playing and repeatedly replaying "Army in a Can" artifact creatures and such I would describe its archetype as "The Rock" but with artifacts.

I has a lot of redundancy in recursion with Glissa as well as mana making sac outlets to fuel further board presence (and prevent exile). Importantly it is not too reliant on the graveyard as it really just wants to recur a single powerful creature rather than using the graveyard as the main thrust of the deck.

Additionally, recent reprints have allowed me to access the power of Lands, being an artifact based deck allows me to play a large number of colourless utility lands.


Updates Add

Building a new deck and needed Damnation. Put in my favourite Massacre Wurm again, it was often a random win con. Cabal Coffers is kinda bad in a deck with 3 swamps even with Urbog, drawing it sucks. I'll try it in the new deck.

Soul-guide Lantern is more cycling grave hate seems good.
