My love for MtG comes from the challenge of brewing optimized Commander/EDH decks that are creative and flavorful. My main reason for sitting down and playing at the EDH table is to test my decks to further optimize and learn how to better brew consistent decks. Don't get me wrong, I love playing the game, but brewing is were my true passion lies.

Due to my personal passion for brewing, I have stumbled into a love for mono-colored decks. The challenges they present to a brewer are invigorating to take on and creating a mono-colored deck that can sit at a high-powered table is a rewarding accomplishment.

It's true that each color in magic has its weaknesses, but they also have their strengths. Being able to push the advantages of a pure colored deck to its limits while also mitigating its weaknesses is an exciting challenge.

Although I am sure I will build a multi-colored deck here and there, I am devoted to becoming a master of Mono-EDH.

I have thought about all of those cards except for Cauldron of Souls . Here are my thoughts.

  1. Bottled Cloister is decent card draw, but I have been playing this deck for awhile, and card advantage has not been an issue at all. I think it is clunkier than the other forms of draw I have in the deck as well.

  2. Priest of Urabrask and Worldgorger Dragon are combo dependent cards. They don't do too much by themselves which I try to avoid. My combo cards like Kiki, Cloudstone, etc., all fit within the theme and can be good if drawn alone.

  3. I used to run both Kyren Negotiations and Vigilante Justice in this deck when it was focused more on token generation. They are a little weaker in this decklist.

  4. Cauldron of Souls is a cool card! I think that it is way better in a deck that can sacrifice things easily. Other people aren't going to board wipe if they know what I can do, so I would be waiting for myself to do it. I would rather Feldon of the Third Path or even Mimic Vat instead.

  5. I have debated on and off about Goblin Engineer . It is a really synergistic card in this deck. Any ideas on what to sub it in for?
