The Arrangement Is That You Have No Hand

Commander / EDH* BUG (Sultai) Combo Control Discard


Playing a wheel card with Leovold, Emissary of Trest in play leaves all your opponents with one just card (sometimes none!). This leaves you in a great position to combo out in safety. Teferi's Puzzle Box is notable in that it creates a soft lock with Leovold - they draw normally first, then tuck their whole hand and draw nothing. Unless that one drawn card is a relevant instant (like removal), they have no opportunity to play anything. This deck is built more for fast combo than resilience; dump hands and go straight for Doomsday or Tainted Pact and Laboratory Maniac.

Wheels are, I feel, too good to ignore in any Leovold deck. Dorks and other fast mana are also great - the quicker you can dump opponent's hands, the fewer permanents they can play. What you do after that, though, is up to personal taste. Wanna battlecruise with goodstuff? Sounds fun. Elf tribal? You're in great colours for it. If fast combo isn't your thing, you have plenty of other options!

Doomsday Piles:

Predict, Laboratory Maniac, Gitaxian Probe, Unearth, Street Wraith

Gitaxian Probe, Ideas Unbound, Laboratory Maniac, Pact of Negation, Street Wraith

Otherwise, wheeling after Doomsday with Laboratory Maniac in play (you could use Doomsday to put Laboratory Maniac and a wheel on top if you need to) will usually give you the win.

Tainted Pact will also strip your whole deck (as long as it's completely singleton). Play it with Laboratory Maniac out and you've got a win whenever you draw next.


Updates Add

Added Tainted Pact, reworked the land so the deck is singleton for it. We'll see how having a backup combo piece plays.
