Said on First EDH deck ......

#1

I'd suggest two things:

Write

Najeela, the Blade Blossom *CMDR*
in your decklist. This will highlight her as the commander in the deck's page.

Secondly, I'd suggest another card that let's you generate mana from the warriors created by Najeela, thus creating infinite combat steps: Song of Freyalise . Plus, if you haven't won already, you get a big buff on the third turn (even if not needed, I hope).

The link to your deck is broken, thus I couldn't see it, let me know if you fix it.

Anyways, since Angus Mackenzie is one of the most expensive commander legal legendary creatures around, you'd probably do better with a Kruphix, God of Horizons turbo fog build: fog on opponent's turns, attack with fatties on yours, that's the basic idea. Save a lot of money for one card and straight up build a complete competitive deck.

On the other hand, as suggested previously, if you like defenders, you might want to build Arcades, the Strategist with a lot of walls instead.

I would suggest Ezuri, Claw of Progress (even if a bit expensive himself). It has a clear game plan and usually has a good amount of interaction. It's a good way to learn magic in my opinion. Plus, he is an elf, even if slightly touched by phyrexia: not a scary monster, but in the middle... It could be a nice way to introduce her to magic lore while playing.

Another good one would be Sram, Senior Edificer Voltron with cheap equipments that let you draw lots of cards. Niche deck, but surprisingly fun and effective. Plus, he's a dwarf: there aren't may around magic, you know.

I'd suggest Aqueous Form as a cheaper unblockable aura than the ones you list here, good for a swap.

Unsubstantiate is a cool spell you might have missed.

Many of the spells suggested by multimedia are in fact very good, I won't reapeat them.

As a line of thought, I'd suggest you to take out minor one time effect cards for other cards that repeatedly give you that same effect.

Add more good instant speed interaction, like non-conditional counterspells, and bounce spells. Only keep tap all opponent's creatures effects.

I'd say that golgari sacrifice decks are pretty much similar in some way. I run a Meren of Clan Nel Toth deck which is a bit more about reanimation and automill, but still pretty similar to what you would run in yours. I guess you could try and swap out commanders if you have them in your deck (you should). Otherwise, tackling the problem could be done in many ways.

I'd say some good old reanimation effects to bring your commander back from the graveyard would go a long way: Animate Dead , Necromancy , Dance of the Dead , Ever After , Beacon of Unrest .

Another good strategy would be to ramp lands like crazy, even if a little less efficient: recur and sac many times Viridian Emissary , Solemn Simulacrum , Dawntreader Elk and similar.

One last way would be to protect Savra from removal: Blessing of Leeches , Lightning Greaves and such.

I meant that as of now, I do not have LabMan or Jace in the deck, so of I have Notion Thief and Forced Fruition on the field at the end of my turn, my opponents could try to play as many spells as possible to deck me out. I knew this was a problem at time of building, but I didn't care too much, as this made it a high risk high reward kind of deal, and I liked it. Adding LabMan, Jace and some wheels could be interesting.

Underworld Dreams is not a card for this kind of mill deck, but rather for a wheel deck. I wouldn't include it, the step from there to a Nekusar deck is dangerously close.

Crucible of Worlds is definitely a strong piece for lands matter decks and could come in handy, but I don't think it deserves a spot here. If you own one, give it a try, otherwise, I would not risk buying one for nothing.

Do not worry, for I have come.

Quotes apart, I have to admit I were tinkering around and I thought the same thing about LabMan and the new Jace, Wielder of Mysteries . Those would go as alternative wincons.

The Notion Thief combo with the wheels in your deck also works (in a reverse way) with Forced Fruition in mine: this means that, as of now, they could kill me. The twist is that if I time the Thief right, I'll draw a combo without risking death too much. I have been considering adding those two wheels for the same effect.

To fasten the win once Jace or LabMan is out, you could tap creatures to mill yourself.

Speaking of milling yourself, another fun combo comes from casting Living Death or Living End . A week ago I had a game where I stole Living Death with Gonti from one of my friend's deck, then milled myself for 2 turns and then cast it, while my opponent's graveyards where basically empty. Unexpectedly, I didn't win that game, but it was fun. As such I don't know if it's worth including.

I guess I'll have to wait my turn, tap one blue and Ponder on all these options a little bit. See ya!

May 15, 2019 4:58 a.m.

Where the hell are Naban, Dean of Iteration and Panharmonicon ?

Alongside Arcane Adaptation , I'd suggest also Xenograft for the same effect.

Lullmage Mentor is a must in a wizard deck, alongside Voidmage Prodigy for control purposes.

Izzet Chronarch , Salvager of Secrets and Archaeomancer rebuy your spells! Twice, with Panharmonicon and Naban !

Barrin, Master Wizard loves tokens, as you can sacrifice them to him and remove threats! Galecaster Colossus is maybe the strongest Wizard in tribal commander decks.

Beguiler of Wills loves of you have a high creature count.

Descendant of Soramaro almost lets you stack your deck on need.

Rayne, Academy Chancellor draws lots of cards.

Serendib Sorcerer saves you from tight spots and it's politic.

May 14, 2019 3:37 a.m.

I think it all depends on what you want your infinite loop to do. As previously stated, you generally need a minimum of 2 cards to create a loop, but that's useless if there's no triggered ability that continuously goes on the stack adding mana/doing damage/drawing cards/milling your opponents.

Thus, all infinite combos trying to pull off some of the aforementioned effects need at least 3 cards.

My commander suggestions and best best for highly combo intensive decks based on artifacts would be Sharuum the Hegemon , Breya, Etherium Shaper (which includes most of the Sharuum combos) and Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient .

Oh, I have built this deck months ago, but forgot to update it ever since.

I do not own this in paper, that's why. Anyways, I already own a deck with heavy hitters and janky big cards that focuses on cheating stuff:

Anyways, the mana base of this deck is pretty straightforward, but not nearly as efficient as it should. One way to improve this would be using Fetch lands, Tango lands, Shock lands and Bond lands. For further help with mana bases I highly recommend using http://manabasecrafter.com

#11

Oh yeah rshistorysmuf, I literally have an EDH deck that tries to do that as one of the wincons!

For it I used Gonti, Lord of Luxury , Hinder , Spell Crumple , Junktroller ... But there are many others!

May 10, 2019 6:07 a.m.

Yeah rshistorysmuf, I wanted to keep mill more consistent by introducing some fun combos, but I didn't include tutors because I don't want that much consistency against my friends.

In the past I've tried to keep the deck more symmetrical, but I've ended up swapping some of those inefficient effects with big one player take out cards.

Anyways, I'll take a look once more at your list, as it gave me interesting points to work on ;)

Between the three, I'd say the fairest general would be Kozilek, the Great Distortion , I would go with him. Although Eldrazi tribal is a viable option with him at the helm, I think you should take a look at another possible iteration of Eldrazi tribal with a Izzet general, Jhoira of the Ghitu , obviously without green (and land ramp, that is). If you're interested, take a look:

I run a mill deck with Phenax. Have you considered Notion Thief ? Again, if you like being equally evil, also Psychic Corrosion can be good.

Anyways, your deck concept, while interesting, seems a bit too slow and lucklaster to me, and has many interesting differences compared to mine. If you bother to take a look:

The description seems a bit confused here... Anyways, you got me thinking of Tunnel Vision . The inly difference is that, as previous users said, you are told what to do with the revealed cards.

If I name a card not present in my opponent's deck when playing Tunnel Vision I am basically wasting 6 mana for nothing.

Thanks for featuring me in!

Anyways, I'd say the swap of Sphinx's Tutelage for Hinder was a good idea overall.

Your graveyard interaction is much more present than mine, I will take inspiration from you and maybe make some changes to my decklist regarding Havengul Lich and The Scarab God .

The swap of Dread for No Mercy is something I'm planning to do too, as soon as some budget kicks in.

Absolutely do not even consider cutting out Mesmeric Orb , it's god level mill right there: people cannot choose to not untap permanents, unless they don't tap them in the first place. So to counter such a play, they'd have to destroy/counter it or else... Stop playing? The auto mill hits you too, but you should be fine. Same goes to a lesser extent to Dreamborn Muse .

Bitter Ordeal is a fun card, plus it's a one hit kill with Traumatize / Fleet Swallower . Definitely worth a try. Plus, it removes threats, or simply remove all the good cards from your opponents' decks... So evil.

Are you sure about Kozilek, Butcher of Truth ? You are not an attacking deck and overall may need huge amounts of mana to cast it. If you only care about reshuffling your graveyard, the are other options that only shuffle one graveyard (yours), listed in the section The Bane of Your Existence in my decklist.

One last thing: are your land drops consistent overall? If not, I'd consider going up to 36 lands.

Keep up the good work!
