Been playing MTG for a number of years off an on. Recently been enjoying playing EDH as the format reminds me of the old decks I used to build (single cards only). Building decks is my main enjoyment from playing magic, as well as using more complicated styles of play rather than just beatdowns. Always up for comments on my decks, and am interested in new and unique ways of playing, especially if it means defeating your opponent in a way they aren't expecting.

Here's the latest build, and I've gathered quite a few of the more useful cards from all the decks provided as well as any I could find on TappedOut. I'm sure that there are some hiding somewhere since there isn't a tag for "color hate" or something like that.

I'm curious if there are any strategies that stand out with the collection of cards. There does seem to be some control options, but they seem on the border of Iona, Shield of Emeria which makes the game not fun. Are there any other strategies that could possibly work, or is this theme destined to be not enjoyable by anyone at the table?

Delphen7 - that sounds a lot more cancerous than I am going for, but ChaosJester may be right that the format is inherently control based.

I'll take a look at the deck. I've found that the color changing keywords are pretty challenging to search because of all the color overlap with things like "white" giving you lots of token generation abilities etc, so any decks that have a list are helpful. If only there was a primer of all the cards...

I also agree that a win condition seems challenging. Commander damage is possible, and so are things like Radiate+Artificial Evolution+Ral, Storm Conduit, which should give a copy for every permanent on the battlefield dealing a lot of damage. I have a feelings that there are other ways to leverage the targeting situation, like maybe storm or something like that.

I've got 2 decks in development at the moment utilizing the abilities of color/land changing effects like Whim of Volrath. I'm wondering if this strategy is viable in magic since I've always been curious about the mechanic, it's been around a long time, and EDH seems like a good format to try something creative with it.

These are the 2 decks so far:

The Whim of Volrath

Color Fight Party

I'm tempted to try a 5 color option to capture white's color hate strategies as well like Northern Paladin or Justice.

No problem Kamerot, thanks for the suggestions. I actually had a few of these in the deck and pulled them out for some other options. Temur Sabertooth being one of them. I'll add them into the maybeboard since they do have some nice use cases. I'll def have to pick up a Kodama of the East Tree.

Feel free to link the deck since that sounds very much up my alley.

I hear that. Only way to get them through the day is burning off energy. Looking forward to your insights.

In your mono-green journey, have you come across any good nuggets for someone who is looking to fine tune an off-color mono-green deck? The plan is to stay away from any and all ramp while relying on off color strategies like direct damage, removal, recursion, and cheating creatures into play. Here's the deck:

ThatWeirdPerson - Boil was in the deck, and I originally had a lot more land destruction like that, but with the current EDH format, land specific destruction cards may be less useful than I expected. Stench of Evil and the like are also in the maybeboard, so if I get around to getting all the cards and can test it IRL, then we shall see. Sadly, Ral, Storm Conduit is the only current win condition in the game, if you get a permanent target and Radiate so for now it will stay unless the deck actually wins in another way.

legendofa - Thanks for the suggestions, and I like Crypt Angel so we shall see how that goes. There aren't a ton of creatures, but it does target specific colors and has protection so...who knows. Thada Adel, Acquisitor is an interesting idea and makes me wonder if I could leverage landwalking abilities in this deck way more to win games, so could end up being the only reliable win condition with the deck.

This deck is ridiculous. I was searching for discussions around Magical Hack, stumbled upon this deck and am now questioning my entire philosophy around deck building. Here I thought I was going out on a limb building a deck around color manipulation with:

and I find this beast. Any other mechanics that change the game that you've come across that are similar to this?

Wow, Hatred has increased in cost again? That's...unfortunate. There's also Endless Scream, which could get more utility since it is permanent.

Also there are these unblockable options too:

Dauthi Embrace

Access Tunnel

Rogue's Passage

Dauthi Trapper

If you wanted a recurring way to infect your commander, Glistening Oil could be a good option

Definitely should have a Hatred in here. That will easily one shot someone.
