Hello all! Squiggle here. I've played Magic for a little while now, and started in Born of the Gods. People are usually surprised that I'm still technically a new player with the experience and how I play.

My first deck was the pre-built mill deck from Gatecrash(?). I enjoyed it a lot, but have since expanded my views and play styles.

I now mainly focus on playing commander (EDH), but I do still have 60 card casual decks. You can most commonly find me on the Q&A; area of the site.

I am technically a Rules Adviser, but officially not since the Rules Advisor test was taken down. Right now I'm working towards my L1 exam and eventually becoming an L1 judge, so if any questions arise, I will do my best to answer them! It'll help with my knowledge and experience for the exam. :)

Welcome to my profile, and as always, have good draws!

508.7. One card (Portal Mage) allows a player to reselect which player or planeswalker a creature is attacking

508.7c The reselected player or planeswalker must be an opponent of the attacking creature’s controller, or a planeswalker controlled by an opponent of the attacking creature’s controller.

It’s always worth checking the gatherer page for cards in question to see if additional rulings are there that might answer your question. From the gatherer page for Kheru Lich Lord:

9/20/2014 If a creature card returned to the battlefield with Kheru Lich Lord would leave the battlefield for any reason, it’s exiled instead. However, if that creature is already being exiled, then the replacement effect won’t apply. If the spell or ability that exiles it later returns it to the battlefield (as Suspension Field might, for example), the creature card will return to the battlefield as a new object with no relation to its previous existence. The effects from Kheru Lich Lord will no longer apply to it.

You’ll have 3. One original, two tokens.

I have a similar windgrace deck (love the cat bastard), but mine utilizes more snow-based lands in order to play cards like Glacial Crevasses (surprisingly good when your commander just reanimates the lands you sacrifice). Similarly, Sunstone works the same but with any snow land. Helps to keep Windgrace around a lot longer if people can't swing into him.

Forgot to add in Capsize and Venser, Shaper Savant as win cons with infinite mana and infinite bounce (in regards to Venser). Bouncing everyone right out of the game. Also Venser is a good "counter spell", much like Mystic Snake and Frilled Mystic.

I would add in some redundancies to the bouncing creatures. Man-o'-War, Dream Stalker, Kor Skyfisher, and Stonecloaker (especially good cause flash and also grave hate). Cloud of Faeries also does good work when comboing with Aluren and a bounce source.

Speaking of bounce sources, more redundancies! Words of Wind and Overburden (This card is important as it combos out with Shrieking Drake and is generally a strong card. You won't care about bouncing lands cause chulane will put it right back into play).

Now what to do with all the mana in the world you could want and all the casting you could want? Well, Aetherflux Reservoir and Brain Freeze come to mind. Also, Words of Wind doubles as a win con by bouncing everyone out of the game entirely. Similarly, Words of Wilding can give you as many bears as you want to swing with. These Word cards will help save that mandatory draw from Chulane as your deck empties out. (And on the chance your playgroup allows some UnCards, Crow Storm is quite the funny win con)

How are you gonna get these cards quickly and consistently though? A couple more draw engines wouldn't hurt. Beast Whisperer and Guardian Project are both strong when playing a "I must cast all the creatures" deck. Abundance and Rhystic Study aren't too bad either.

But, how to protect your stuff when you cast it? Prowling Serpopard should be in here to protect your creatures. He's a cat, he protec. Also, Gaddock Teeg strongly hates on any spell slinger deck.

Depending on your budget, Earthcraft should be in here. Otherwise, its budget, (but not nearly as good cousin) Cryptolith Rite could work too.

What is your budget per card?

Coffin Queen is a decent go-to card for instant speed reanimation, plus Ulamog stays around.

Hell's Caretaker is also an option.
