So looks like I am building Elsha next. How could I ignore such a spicy list? It even plays my favorite card in LED!
Aww, man, my favorite characters in MTG, Jhoira and Karn! I wish word would go back to story driven design. But then, I am playing cEDH, so I am used to utterly broken cards being played 😉

I from time to time pull out the original Theros block challenge decks – the Minotaur one is mostly a horde deck, the hydra and Xenagos ones are a bit more quirky. It works ok to get the feel of shuffling your cards and provides at least a little bit m…
Finally got Cloudspire to the table, went quite well – a bit on the fiddly side, but I can imagine to explore it more. And will definitely try to get more Too Many Bones in, but the only new there are the new expansions that came in. …
Hard pass. I LIKE to play with old bonkers cards. Banning based on price is dumb. This in no way is „the cEDH manifesto“ – it contradicts what cEDH is, and that is „playing to the max power within the restriction of EDH rules“. I might be fine with a „…
Make Lavinia your commander, go full speed! Add Knowledge Pool as an additional – better even! – lock and lose all your friends!
[[Concerted Effort]] could be good in this deck, because the power of your germs spread to all your creatures … (and big thumbs up on your deck idea)
Yes, this is basically a joke deck on the corona virus, but I also want to find a way to make it work.
Commander: [[Ephara, God of the Polis]]
No budget for the deck, but I’d prefer to keep individual cards below $20 each in most cases.
Currently wincons are Germ swarms, with a backup plan of [[Approach of the Second Sun]], or voltron in an emergency. I’m betting I need a few more anthems to keep my germs alive early.
Permanent flicker/blinks have been a little harder to find than creature, but I was hoping to avoid turning the equipment into creatures. Not totally excited for non-repeatable effects.
The card stealing can mostly be cut for better on theme cards, and copying cards can be reduced as needed too. Didn’t feel there were enough living weapons to produce enough germs.
(first of all sorry of i have some error in my spelling, inglish is not my best lenguage) soo after watching videos of mtg for years a moved to a city were i can finally play, i’m in a budget and want to build a equipment/tokens value deck, i’m thinking of going with alela or dalakos but i can’t decide witch one to use and don’t really know how to build the decks, if you have a list that i can see or some advice it would be great
No. I am right now in the process to get my full set of go Duals together. Lands are what helps you cast your spells. Buy them. They are good.
Yep, you loop Muldrotha, Phantasmal Image, Lion’s Eye Diamond and Animate Dead to make infinit mana.
That’s one important one in my Muldrotha deck, as the combo involves Phantasmal Image and Animated Dead and is based on one Muldrotha killing the other, so you can loop them from your graveyard. Get’s people by surprise quite often.
Does top-decking Dramatic Reversal and Walking Ballista with Isochron Scepter in hand count as mastery? 😉 I mean, it’s better to be lucky than good, right?
A real answer would be to actually play according to the tempo dictated by active stax pieces and managing your ressources correctly, so that you still have the answers and options ready you need, when you need them. A big thing people do wrong is overextending into active stax, be it Back to Basics, Winter Orb, Narset or even just the Thalias. You need to know what your deck can cough up when you are working under restricted mana and restricted draws, so you need to make sure you can actually play your outs the turn you need them.
/u/bboomslang on How many EDH decks do you currently have? (100% completed) How would you rank them weakest to strongest?
- Kenrith Elfball (5c) – cEDH, infinite mana into Kenrith for the win
- Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain (UR) – cEDH, artifact combo, stax, storm
- Teshar, Ancestor’s Apostle (W) – fringe cEDH, artifact combo, graveyard loops
- Lavinia, Azorius Renegade (UW) – fringe cEDH, very hateful bears, prison lock
- Grenzo Doomsday (BR) – fringe cEDH, Doomsday suicide combo
- Emry, Lurker of the Loch (U) – high power, artifact combo
- Muldrotha the Gravetide (BUG) – high power, infinite mana into Jarad for the win
- The Locust God (UR) – high power, wheels into hasty insects
- Kykar Helm (WUR) – mid power, equipments and vehicles matter, Godo/Aurelia Helm combo
- Grenzo Goblins (BR) – mid power, Grenzo as a combo slot machine
- Syr Konrad (B) – mid power, self-mill into table drain
- Saheeli (UR) – mid power, hidden commander Brudiclad, lots of token synergies
- Kadena, Slinking Sorcerer (BUG) – low power, spiced up precon
- Sliver Overlord (5c) – low power, all slivers, actual slivers (no combo, only aggro slivers and a super budget 5c manabase)
- Slimefoot the Stoaway (GB) – low power, Pauper EDH deck, so all cards in the 99 are commons, aristocrat style and even a dumb infinite token combo in there
Those are the ones I can pull out directly without having to sort through cards and pull cards from other decks, at least if people are ok with small amounts of proxies on the higher end decks (because owning one of each duals should be enough with the price they run at).
Only real exception is deck 5 (Grenzo Doomsday), as that is just a hilariously dumb combo deck that really is far too risky to spend actual mana on, so it runs proxies for all the expensive cards (I do own them, though, so could pull it togehter, too).
oona in mono blue or mono black as a solid wincon for infinit mana when I am not running artifact hate. Or Ashiok as general GY and tutor hate in mono blue or mono black.
Totally love you videos and really dig your style there with the cuts and commentary. Keep it up!
What’s more difficult doomsday piles or keeping track of Niv’s triggers ?? Thanks to u/nslover for the new logo! We post videos every Saturday if you’re interested in subscribing. BEST 2 COLOR COMMANDER IN CEDH submitted by /u/dylan414 …
Hmm – RG with Grumgully, Goblin Bombardement and Skuzzback Marauders and tons of red/green stax and creature tutors? Janky as hell, though, I assume.

Yeah, that indeed is a bit of a conundrum, Thassa‘s Oracle in a mono blue deck is much harder to pull off than in a deck with black or green. Or Flash – not really that great in mono blue, but quite nasty if you add green (hulk) or white (flash rector)…
Because I like to play multiplayer and having a commander and starting at 40 life and all the other stuff that makes commander what it is. I just think the black-white view of a banlist is less optimal for a format trying to cater to many different sit…
The longer the discussion goes, the more I think the only actual solution is the canlander way: skip a bandits and point cards so you can play them, but in a given point maximum, you are limited to what you can do. It is a much better balance of „playi…
The thing is though: if they spend enchantment removal on your wild growth, you might actually like that, as that’s one removal less to worry about. And if they strip mine your basic forest, that’s probably better than later on strip mining your cabal coffers.
I see it show up quite often in base-green cEDH decks lately, because it is just another cheap piece of ramp that can be dropped T1 or T2, where people usually won’t waste turns to remove it, so it helps you early turns. And mid game it is often just to inconsequential to remove over something else more threatening (like a Rhystic Studies or Smothering Tithe).
My Muldrotha list runs Null Rod and Collector Ouphe, so it keeps the number of artifacts low. It’s fine to have some of the card draw baubles disabled by Null Rod, but cutting off your own mana just feels bad, man.
