Miracle Wizard | You shall not pass! (LOTR Theme)

Commander / EDH Combo Control Flash Miracle RUW (Jeskai, America) Spellslinger Wizards


My first Commander build, tweaks and recs appreciated!

The Strat

The deck revolves around slinging big spells, resetting boards, and then suspending those big spells to be cast at a later time with Gandalf of the Secret Fire. Considering I built this deck to play in a non competitive pod, there won't be any blue counter cards in the deck, I would rather run polymorph esq cards in the deck to keep the board state fun.

Win Cons

The deck has several ways it can win. Sheer control of the board state and echoing big spells can get out of hand pretty quick, along with some head hunters like Velomachus Lorehold, Niv-Mizzet, Parun, and last but not least Torrential Gearhulk. These big three are the main win cons of the deck.


There are a lot of combos in the deck, the biggest being Niv-Mizzet, Parun and Curiosity together will net you two results, either you win the game or you will deck yourself out in one turn. Just remember not to get carried away and that Curiosity does say You MAY draw a card, you CAN stop the slippery slope of decking yourself.

Polymorphist's Jest and Anger of the Gods is another small combo to be noted. However I have debated dropping both of these cards to add in Reset and Reiterate to be combod with Lightning Bolt for infinite damage/mana. This combo also works with Lightning Helix in place of Lightning Bolt for just one extra Plains.

Soulfire Grand Master and any burn spells such as Olorin's Searing Light or Gandalf's Sanction.

There are TONS of Sensei's Divining Top combos. To name one: Sensei's Divining Top filters through your deck to stack any miracle such as Bonfire of the Damned. You then summon Soulfire Grand Master and pass turn. As long as there is a way for you to cast sorcery cards on their turn i.e Vedalken Orrery, Leyline of Anticipation, Wizards of Thay or Gandalf, Friend of the Shire, you can then (on your opponents turn) trigger Sensei's Divining Top to draw your first card on THEIR turn to trigger Bonfire of the Damned and watch all your friends mouths drop in awe.

The list of combos honestly goes on and on.

As I have mentioned above this is my first Commander/EDH deck I have ever built. I do have a strong history of building decks in other formats/TCGs, and I come from a competitive tournament based background. Any tips or recommendations/changes is very appreciated!

Thank you reader for the time you have taken to go over my hard work!


Updates Add

Starting to think I definitely have too many "Enter play tapped" lands. Or at least had some subpar options chosen. Not experiencing issues yet of being starved, so my land volume feels good, and I don't mind having the scry lands considering they work really well with the Miracles in the deck. Made a few small tweaks here and there to keep the mana as balanced as possible, still is gonna need some work. Any recommendations on Lands to drop and replacements for them is greatly appreciated!
