Tanks for sharing your point of view !

I've been too much rude with Thought Lash indeed. I'm so focussed on giving this card that I always forgot it make you win with Thassa's Oracle :p

Approach of the Second Sun is a very easy way to win (too much in my opinion) : Zedruu let you draw 3 or 4 cards per turn in average, so it's a 2 turn clock for your opponents. But I know our MotherGoat is very greedy in mana ressources, even more in Bad Gift archetype.

Good luck, and don't forget to spray joy with our MotherGoat !

Hi darksideownedu !

Your deck seems really cool. I'm not a big fan of Bad Gift Zedruu but I have to admit it's an archetype that works.

I don't know if you've already played the deck, but does cards like Glacial Fortress trigger all the time ? Personally I don't run this kind of land, but I have less basic land than you. Also, fetchland are incredible cards in a manabase. If you have money for, add Arid Mesa , Flooded Strand and Scalding Tarn to your deck.

For the deck itself, it seems very consistent. I honestly think Thought Lash is a bad card : it take in average 13 turn to mill 90 cards (counting the natural draw of the opponent) and 10 turns to get rid of 60 cards.

Also, I wonder why you run Witch Hunt . It seems not really synergistic with Zedruu's life gain and cards like Angel of Destiny or Aetherflux Reservoir .

Finally, medallion cards (like Sapphire Medallion ) seems really good, I will try them in my deck some game to see how strong they can be. I advise you to run Thought Vessel rather than Spellbook (no maximal hand size while ramping ? Amazing !). Pentad Prism and Sphere of the Suns are pretty good rock to give away.

I love your idea to run Angel of Destiny : that's a so good political card, I've never seen it used like this.

In a nutshell, I think it's a really cool deck to play, Zedruu's ability is what make me fall in love with her, so I love seeing how people exploit it. Have fun, and don't forget to spray joy with our MotherGoat !

Hi Robins_compass !

Thanks for your deck ! You made me discover many cards I didn't know about. I'm not a big fan of Bag Gift Zedruu, but it's an archetype I have that admit that exist. And your deck seem pretty good to do it.

I don't know if you've already played the deck, but does the number of land is ok ? 33 seems really weak (I would run 36-37). You also run "only" 7 cheap mana rock. Please let me know if I'm wrong with that.

For the deck itself, it seems very consistent. I honestly think Thought Lash is a bad card : it take in average 13 turn to mill 90 cards (counting the natural draw of the opponent) and 10 turns to get rid of 60 cards.

Also, I wonder why you run Upheaval . It seems not really synergistic with Zedruu's ability. However it's a very good card in blue deck (but I prefer Cyclonic Rift :p)

In a nutshell, I think it's a really cool deck to play, Zedruu's ability is what make me fall in love with her, so I love seeing how people exploit it. Have fun, and don't forget to spray joy with our MotherGoat !

I've already seen many way to win in magic, but never a deck wich force opponent to concede cause they're winning with slivers. +1 for this diabolic idea

Hi NetholonTheArchmage !

I will always be surprised how qualitative your decks are. Nice commander design, uncommon game plan, ... Everything made yours deck original and attractive. But that's all for the fan boy moment.

This deck is really interesting cause your game plan is basically doing ... nothing. You ramp to get a ton of mana, then, rather that playing huge creatures, you try to slow the game while drawing your library to win. In fact, I don't get what's the winning plan. Is it only with Helix Pinnacle ?

Also, while reading the decklist, I were surprised to see you don't run Life from the Loam . With the ton of effect like Llanowar Scout , it could be very effective. I'm also surprised you don't run some counter spell cards, or the great Cyclonic Rift , but being totally reactive don't seem to be the purpose of the deck.

I would also advice you to run Laboratory Maniac or Jace, Wielder of Mysteries , which combo off with Tunnel Vision , but I know it's not the way you win a game.

In a nutshell, I really like this deck, even if it's not the kind I would play (I'm not a swamp addict). Keep on to build those incredible and well constructed deck, and long life to our MotherGoat... Ho ! Turtle I mean

Hi HandsomeCowboy !

This is one of the most qualitative budget Zedruu deck I ever see. Many cards are good, even excellent. I think Shifting Loyalties are really too expensive, and maybe Switcheroo too.

Good budget cards I can recommend you are :

And for 2$ more:

Wild Research is my favorite card, it just allow you to access to 1/3 of your deck So, whatever your deck is just very effective for a budget deck, I am really impressed

Best of luck to you and spray joy with our MotherGoat

Hi Tedryg !

What a nice casual deck you've made. It seems to be the kind of deck you play with beginners or friends to enjoy the evening.

If you want to draw more cards an gain more life, you could run Alhammarret's Archive or Teferi's Ageless Insight . Combined with Teferi's Puzzle Box , you got a devastating draw engine.

If you want to go into something more competitive, you can run Walking Ballista to combo off with Heliod, Sun-Crowned

Best of luck to you, and don't forget to spread love with our MotherGoat

Hi Milliam_Shakespeare !

That's cool to see other players deck build zedruu deck, our favorite goat. Keep on this way ! I'm not a big fan of Bad Gift Zedruu but it's a kind of game plan that work. For this build, I would advice you to run Confusion in the Ranks in your deck, which is a good exchange card that will avoid you to spend mana or cards like Donate or Harmless Offering and put some spice in the game.

I don't think Thought Lash is a good card. For scale, it take 13 turns to mill 90 cards, and 10 turns to mill 60 cards. Quite long to kill your opponent.

Also, if you have 15$ to spend, Cyclonic Rift is an awesome card to get. It's not a very big synergy with the spirit of your deck, but it can definitely turn the situation around

Best of luck to you, and spread your gifts with love
