I spend A lot of time on here.. Really too much. I don't have much else to do so MTG is a kind of obsession of mine. Been playing off and on since about 8th edition. I play EDH almost exclusively now. I've always been a combo player. It is just so satisfying to get a couple cards to work together to kill everyone at the table. However I also like it when everyone else gets to have fun so I tend to choose slower combos or combo decks that require a certain level of setup. It took a long time but I found my all time favorite decks, Divine Decree and Should I Pretend This Or That?. These reflect my preferred way of playing pretty well.

Below are my favorite and least favorite colors and color combinations ordered as

Mono // Allied // Enemy // Shard // Wedge // Sans-1

DemonDragonJ lol, I get asked this more than I ever would have expected. Back when I was playing Guild Wars 1 I misspelled a character name and I didn't notice until I had gotten to a point where renaming would have been more effort than I wanted to put in. I got in with a group of weirdos, as one does in GW, and they liked the name so it just kinda stuck. I've just kept reusing it since it is rather unique to me :)

TheBooman it could happen. I'll have to see what happens with the deck before I mess too much with a spendy land base :)

Oh, I love this idea... you might consider Secret Salvage, Remembrance, and Bloodbond March.

I honestly think you can cut some of the 35 rats. I've not played with them but I played with shadowborn apostles a lot. I found 24 of them to be fine. I don't see any reason why having 30-ish rats would be that much different than 35. If you don't like that idea then you'll have to make some really tough cuts and I really don't know what to suggest... Maybe Athreos, God of Passage as one of them? I know he is good but a meta can adapt to him easier than you'd think...

Hummm, Maybe I'll give a few of them a shot at some point if you are having decent results. I think I still prefer set numbers and ones that are just 0s when dead. None of this having to do math stuff :P

I guess if you can get the * powers into the grave before they hit mid to high numbers then they are ok. Up to you on that.

Sadly Nethroi hates * power. There might be some that work for him depending on the wording of the ability but the vast majority of * power effects work no matter what zone the creature is in. From Lord of extinctions gatherer rulings:

"The ability that defines Lord of Extinction’s power and toughness works in all zones, not just the battlefield. If Lord of Extinction is in your graveyard, it will count itself."

And that follows suit with a lot of them, if not all of them.

Otherwise your version looks really solid. Maybe Buried Alive over entomb for a higher volume of dead stuff to bring back? Mine is here Apex Of Druken if you have thoughts :)

Netherborn Altar is a bit silly. I'll definitely enjoy the card and think it will end up in most of my decks. I write about it here because I think this is where it has the weirdest potential.

First is the simple Hex Parasite interaction. Mairsil effectively costs 6 mana forever with these 2 working together and I lose no life. Not amazing. Won't even come up in most games. Potentially saves my bacon every now and then though by making Mairsil castable after he has real deathed 4 or 5 + times.

Silly interaction comes from the altar being in the cage. I'll need a way to kill Mairsil but it goes like this.

Murder goes on the stack, Netherbon Altar from cage on stack, Sacrifice Mairsil on stack.

Sacrifice resolves, Mairsil goes to command zone, Altar resolves Mairsil goes to hand, Murder has no target.

I'm NOT 100% sure about this interaction until all the official rulings are made. It should work because the Altar does not target the commander it simply specifies the commander. This interaction is not as strong as say AEtherling in response to murder but another layer of protection for Mairsil shenanigans is always great.

Creatures are much easier to deal with even in metas where people use land destruction like they really should. Having your commander bounced to hand every time you cast it because it is the scariest one at the table is immensely frustrating and your answers are maybe 3 or 4 cards in your deck at most...

I find Mairsil and Etrata to be pretty odd commanders. I haven't actually built the Etrata deck yet so that is just a rough up. Mairsil I've had for a long time now and the deck always finds something weird to do.

I was recently inspired to make a creature-less Proteus Staff deck. I haven't gotten very far, can't even decide on the commander... But such a restriction is sure to make an odd deck. I hope.

#12

I've not actually seen a Kess deck in the wild so I can't say what the power level of any of my suggestions will be but they are certainly not cEDH level.

First idea that always kinda interested me is Kess Tokens. It'll use Goblinslide, Release the Gremlins, Metallurgic Summonings, Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer, and more found here

Second idea is removal "tribal". Just every removal spell you can possibly include. One win-con might be Rise of the Dark Realms.

There seem like quite a few options if you take a look at the themes section on EDHrec. Her page.

The Druken Enraged is an old deck of mine that has a group of "protective" cards. Most or all of them in mainboard and maybe board should be close to what you want.

March 26, 2020 12:08 a.m.

Only 25-ish cards left to foil! Though some don't have foil variants so... either doing some peels or getting them altered.

With my commander discarding stuff I wonder if colorless reanimation is enough of a thing? I've got a few pieces... I'll try and find room for some more...

Sword of Light and Shadow, Workshop Assistant, Scrap Trawler, Myr Retriever, Metalwork Colossus, Junk Diver, Conqueror's Galleon  Flip, and Trading Post are all possibilities. Returning to hand is actually perfect for the commander's ability. Of course an empty hand is also good (luls) so maybe Null Brooch?
