Karador Dredge

Commander / EDH* Turgmenkisan


"Kaladesh" Update —Jan. 11, 2019

I'm trying out a few cards that recently piqued my interest during various games of limited and EDH.

Disciple of Bolas > Gonti, Lord of Luxury. I like that it doesn't require another creature to get its value, and it's a non-Human so it undies with Mikaeus.

Elixir of Immortality > Perpetual Timepiece. Despite being double the mana cost, timepiece actually does something proactive, so I like the idea of it going in this niche defensive slot. Additionally, there have been very few games where I've activated Elixir multiple times so the exile clause is less relevant than I initially expected.

Drakon562 there are a lot of powerful etb effects in this deck, so getting a blink at instant speed has more value. Additionally the 4 drop slot in the deck is a little anemic, so it helps fill the pod chain in a pinch.

Wow... this pile is deliciously evil! I have one question, why no Hunting Grounds?

I don't have enough consistent card draw for my hand to be full enough to want Hunting Grounds. Most of the card advantage generated by this deck either comes from the graveyard, reusing etb/deaths, or in the form of land draw via Life from the Loam. I do agree that it goes nicely with Survival of the Fittest, an active Skullclamp, and Greater Good, but if I have any of those out I already have a huge advantage. It is certainly powerful, but I think Hunting Grounds is a win-more in this style of deck.
