You could look into Grenzo, Dungeon Warden. I want with this list: https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/grenzo-dungeon-warden-the-slot-machine-of-value-1/?cb=1547241190 It is tons of fun, because you have random elements, but also a lot of real game plan, h…

Essentially another Bloom Tender, just one more mana in the cost and more complex color requirements. Could still be interesting, at least in singleton formats.

Ajani vs Bolas Duel Deck. Ever since I am a Grixis man.
Exactly. Most of what combo players do is not building a board state – we usually have the worst board state at the table. What we build up is our hand – we need essentials in our hand to be able to Combo off, so that is what we are doing. We don’t jus…
/u/bboomslang on How important is the Gear to you for your corresponding commander deck? and how to find it?
Usually I only go for matching basic lands and sometimes specific arts of cards and sleeves in a matching color. But for my high end decks – Jhoira WC and Teferi – I went for matching boxes, too. But that was more because there are matching boxes for t…
Golos is played as 5c Hulk – the advantage over Thrasios and Tymna is getting red for more efficient Hulk Piles. Usually you win by hulking into Bomberman (Auriok Salvager and Goblin Engineer, fetching Lion‘s Eye Diamond), then using Golos as your outl…

I love your channel and you guys even more for this. Showing that spiky cEDH players can enjoy totally budget is great, but going for CQ decks is just golden. Mitch deserves every shout-out, as you guys deserve!
[The Spike Feeders] A $25 Love Letter to Commander’s Quarters (part 1) | The Spike Feeders Commander Gameplay | S4E1
It’s been like 3 months since our season 3 finale! We spent the summer lounging by the water, filming and editing a ton, and hitting MagicFest Vegas. Hard.
We figured we’d kick things off with a love letter to our favourite Budget EDH content in the entire world – The Commander’s Quarters. Mitch’s decks are powerful, and it’s totally reasonable to just straight up buy one. They’re cheaper than preconstructed decks and are laser focused on their theme.
Jim: $25 The Scarab God.
This deck is Jim’s favourite Commanders Quarters deck of all time. It pumps out the zambies like nobody’s business, has a nice tight curve, and has a surprising amount of action on turn 1.
Eliot: $25 Nezahal Voltron
I have to admit, when I first saw Nezahal spoiled I looked at it as a control finisher. Voltron was the last thing on my mind. Mitch saw a way to get in for beats, draw a ton of cards, and repeatedly bounce non-seacreature permanents and tied all these elements together in a surprisingly oppressive decklist.
Bill’s obsessed with this deck. It’s synergistic, combos at the drop of a hat, and is totally capable of keeping the board entirely clear. It’s the only budget deck he’s actually willing to play without us bugging him.
Maddy: $25 Feather, the Redeemed
Maddy bought the Feather and the Yawgmoth decks to bring to Vegas and lent Yawgmoth to Bill for this episode. She was really excited to play Feather, and after playing against it I can definitely see why. This deck just straight up kills people. It mitigates the lack of card advantage in Boros by ensuring that you don’t go down a card when you cast a spell, and takes advantage of card advantage and filtering on cards like [[Samut’s Sprint]] and [[Expedite]] to keep the pedal to the metal.
As always, this section contains spoilers! Go watch the episode before you keep reading.
8:14: When you’re playing Voltron, especially one as aggressive as Feather, when you choose to attack the first player you’re usually committing to attacking them until they’re dead. Jim was definitely the biggest threat at the table when Maddy chose to attack him, but did she make the right choice?
12:26: Maddy acknowledges it a little later in the episode, but she should likely be casting any instant speed action after blockers are declared so she gives minimal information to her opponents.
16:41: Maddy could have attacked Eliot and taken him out, and Bill would have let it happen. Was this the right choice?
18:50 Eliot discards to hand size, but Nezahal has a Spellbook effect stapled to it! As a result, we have terminated Eliot’s contract and are currently looking at applicants to replace him. Not actually, but man Nezahal has a lot of text. I think at this point if you told me it taps for green I’d believe you.
22:03: Maddy discards Double Cleave. This one’s more expensive than some of the other double strike enablers in the deck but it is easier to cast. Later on this is relevant because she’s got 2 white mana up and needs a double strike spell to kill Eliot.
Would you have made any different decisions than the ones we made in the episode? Let me know in the comments below!
Our First Ever Double Up
We’re trying something a little different for this episode. We were able to get a ton of content filmed over the summer, and for some games we had time to shuffle up and play a second game with the same decks! The second game is going to get declassified next week, but if you want to watch the games back-to-back, head over to our Patreon! We’ll be doing a few double ups this season, so you don’t want to miss them.
Make sure you check out www.spikefeeders.com/shop to pick up Spike Feeders merchandise! Our white and gold foil playmats are totally sold out right now (they were really popular in Vegas), but we should have more in stock early next week.
Yep, could totally see this in a Niv-Mizzet or Locust God deck in a casual setting. A bit durdly and cute, but looks fun.
Here’s the latest iteration of my take on Yarok.
State of the deck:
Big shake up!
Write-up rewrite in progress…
Apply stax to slow the table, then go infinite and win.
Yarok doubles up on punishing passives like Overburden and also accentuates parity breakers like Lotus Cobra and Amulet of Vigor . This forms a great backbone to support lines involving Root Maze or Orb of Dreams . Under such lines, all your lands effectively get doubled and we have ways to reconcile Overburden returning two lands to hand whenever a creature enters. Arboreal Grazer and Elvish Pioneer scale along with Overburden (with or without Yarok) to break parity along that line and add a tap clause for lands to further embellish Amulet of Vigor . Burgeoning helps maintain a faster pace than the table as well, given the unique texture of a ‘landless’ table.
With Yarok on the table Shrieking Drake + Cloud of Faeries yields infinite mana. With infinite mana, Shrieking Drake + Coiling Oracle or similar draws the deck and lets you win via Laboratory Maniac .
- With Yarok (UU): Cloud of Faeries + Coiling Oracle + Shrieking Drake , etc
- Without Yarok (UUB + draw): Spellseeker + Laboratory Maniac : Demonic Consultation
- Use Survival to put Cloud of Faeries + Dream Stalker + Coiling Oracle in the yard, reanimate Faeries and Stalker with Necromancy . Dream Stalker bounces Necromancy . Repeat for infinite mana, then switch to Stalker + Oracle.
The number of ‘incidental’ lines under Yarok that let you gain advantage is positively enormous. I’ll break those down soon… but they’re things like this:
- Grazer enters and creates 4 triggers. Let the two Overburden triggers resolve to return two lands, then let the two Arboreal Grazer triggers resolve to put them back into play. Each land will trigger Amulet of Vigor twice, so you’ll get 4 mana for a single Grazer etb.
- Dance of Many enters triggering twice and creates two copies of Risen Reef . All three Reefs see two elementals enter and each trigger is doubled so you get a total of 12 Risen Reef triggers for your investment.
- Cast Crop Rotation and grab a fetchland. Both Lotus Cobra and Tatyova, Benthic Druid double trigger for the fetch and the fetch target so your works out to 4 mana, 4 cards, and an untapped land at instant speed.
… on and on and on …
All these ‘combos’ are purely incidental, i.e., you’d never go looking for any of these card sequences, but they emerge along the way as you’re setting up the actual lines you want. All the extra cards and mana provide plenty of support to fight through opponent interaction, making it more likely for you to succeed where a more canonical, tighter-margined line would get otherwise disrupted.
I’d be interested in feedback of all kinds. Questions, critiques, suggestions, all thoughts welcome!
It is a solid big value Spell, either giving you what you need to refill or rebuild, or helping you to shape your GY for future Tasigur activations.
Hate is such a strong word 😉 – but yes, I am quite sure it would be able to handle Golos. And Yarok, who of course is the real Enemy.
That deck – I think I know that deck (and the others listed on that account 😉 ).
For me the Seasons Past lists from LabManiac Cameron is sweet, because it is very reactive and I think could easily be tailored to be without infinites – the main shell is just a really solid control shell. I mean, throw out IsoRev and some of the super high price stuff (or keep that in as proxies) and go for a [[Villaneaous Wealth]] WinCon by killing the table with opponents wincons from their libraries?
Or take Cameron’s own advice and switch to [[Palinchron]] and [[Phantasmal Image]] (or do as I did in my Muldrotha and go for [[Vorinclex]]).
Even non-infinite Vorinclex can power big Wealth casts and Tasigurs builtin recursion as well as the selective recursion spells in the list can help to cast that one multiple times, even through incidental graveyard hate (not that well through leylines or RIPs, but hey, green can take care of that easily).
for Slivers you also want Cavern of Souls, Sliver Hive and Path of Ancestry I think, because good solid 5C lands for creature tribal.
/u/bboomslang on Are there any BANT commanders outside of Derevi? Even something that approaches fringe?
There is an Estrid Chain Veil list floating around that is at least fringe viable, I think. Essentially trying the same as Teferi, just worse, but with more colors.
It is a bit of a sleeper card that needs the right shell, but Anje definitely could be that shell. Or Gerald. I love it in my Pauper Tortured Existence Toolbox Deck, even though it usually doesn‘t win – it would need a second card with the same or simi…
It is not legal because it is not yet released – it is coming with Eldraine in autumn. Essentially it is banned because it doesn‘t yet exist 😉
In good old Dr. Evil Fashion it is „one million“, of course.
