Dealing with Kinnan

Commander (EDH) forum

Posted on March 8, 2021, 10:07 a.m. by Evry1sfavteddy

So i run Selvala, Heart of the Wilds as my cEDH deck. Ran into a Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy yesterday and it went off stupid fast, turn two to be exact. What's a good way to handle the deck in mono-green other than racing it?

Collector Ouphe and Null Rod type effect will shut off there artifact ramp which most those decks use along with mana dorks. Turn of the artifact ramp

I’d lean heavily into fight cards... but that’s more because I love that sort of removal. It might not actually be smart or fit your deck.

Force of Vigor can clear two combo pieces very efficiently.

Kinnan is my cEDH deck. So I’ll divulge lots of the strategies. You’ll want to stop the infinite mana, but there’s a lot of ways that it does infinite mana. Mainly, just 2 categories. Storm off with Tidespout Tyrant or Isochron Scepter / Lithoform Engine with Dramatic Reversal and mana positive mana rocks or do infinite untaps with Freed from the Real , Pemmin's Aura or Basalt Monolith . With the introduction out of the way, let’s talk interaction. The best would be Null Rod type effects. You can’t run Cursed Totem sadly given your commander. Cheap enchantment or artifact removal is also good. Heartwood Storyteller prevents them from storming off easily. So would Damping Sphere . Grafdigger's Cage could work. Although it is narrow, if the only infinite mana outlet they have is Kinnan, they won’t be able to use his ability. It also stops Chord, Finale, and Green Sun’s Zenith.

Its a commander dependent deck for the most part. Take out the commander or mess with their artifacts/activated abilities.

This article is nothing but treachery, lies, and deceit.
