Re: Tasigur's Revenge: Razaketh Flash Hulk

That's correct. You could easily slot in Freed from the Real so that Incubation Druid or Bloom Tender goes infinite.

Tolsimir, Friend to Corpses

Agreed. Especially if you're adding in the Portal you should be able to trigger the Project repeatedly.

Tolsimir, Friend to Corpses

Thanks for chiming in! This list is a reflection of my wife's current decklist that she brewed all by herself, so there are definitely improvements that could be made. The Wanderer is a pretty good suggestion. Any others? I think an optimized list could look something like this (WIP): Commander 1x T...

Yarok, the Desecrated - ETB Value, Pod, & Infinite Mana

I think that's a pretty good idea. I particularly like Uro for Yarok. 6 life, 2 cards, and potentially two lands ETB is pretty solid. The list that I've been seriously tinkering with. I want it to be slightly Phyrexian themed, hence some of the card choices. I find Yarok to be pretty Phyrexian in te...

Tasigur's Revenge: Razaketh Flash Hulk

Once upon a time, I had a cEDH Tasigur deck that ran a Flash Hulk package. With the new cards that have been printed over the past year or so, I thought it would be good to update my list for what I would be running for Tasigur. Commander 1 Tasigur, the Golden Fang Mana Sources (17) 1 Mox Diamond 1x...

Sounds pretty solid, from what you've described. What removal options have you considered? Does Veil of Summer have a spot?

Re: Breya: My Mid-Range, High-Powered Memoir

Because I'm a compulsive deck builder lately, I've also brewed up a Golos list that plays basically all of my favorite cards, including Urza, Yawgmoth, Aminatou, Zacama, and Breya. Basically, it's a mashup of several lists I've played over the years. Commander 1x Golos, Tireless Pilgrim Mana Sources...

Re: Zacama, Primal Calamity - Big Mana, Big Draw...Everybody Fear the Dinosaur

I'm assuming that Nyxbloom Ancient makes the deck, hands down. It's such a gratuitously EDH card and it's phenomenal with Zacama. Also, since the deck has a decent amount of land ramp, have you considered adding in Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle along with Dryad of the Elysian Grove ? The Dryad adds m...

Tolsimir, Friend to Corpses

So! My wife has finally decided to branch out from her Kaalia deck (after 3 years of playing Kaalia) and she's decided to build out a Wolf deck. She's an NC State Aluni, where the mascot is a Wolf, and so she wanted to build a Selesnya Wolf deck. With some initial guidance, this is the list that she...

Re: Aminatou, the Fateshifter - The 8-year-old Planeswalker

Yup, Aminatou is super powerful. I think I'm actually going to be building my newly posted Breya list towards Aminatou instead, since I had such a delightful time playing her when I had her last built.

Excellent, analysis, btw.

Re: Yawgmoth, Father of Machines: Suicide Mono-Black Control

I think that with the sheer amount of permanents available to the deck that the Lotus will always have value. Often times, there is at least ONE enchantment that has 2-3 devotion to black on my battlefield and, oftentimes, it's more likely that I have 5-6 devotion. I think the Lotus is a winner for ...

Re: Kaalia Stax & Aggro

This set was VERY disappointing for Kaalia. There's only two cards that I'd really consider for this deck: Erebos's Intervention and Underworld Breach . However, these are two pretty good cards and I'm definitely interested to see how Breach plays out. Being able to recur Stax pieces and creatures i...

Set Review for Return to Theros Erebos, Bleak-Hearted - it's another draw engine in the deck that triggers on any creature dying, which happens a WHOLE lot in this deck.

Re: Thassa’s Oracle and the Case for Flash

Well, that's disappointing. I'm not sure why Flash and Tainted Pact have survived the ban list, as it seems that these are the two cards that are two top tier enablers for the most compact and efficient win lines in cEDH. It seems like cEDH is converging towards Tainted Pact and Fish Hulk lists now,...

I also brewed an alternative Aminatou list that synergizes between Urza and Yawgmoth agreeably. It's listed as List #2 in the OP. The synergies in the Aminatou Stax list I had (originally posted on MTGSalvation) made me realize that Aminatou is a beast of a Commander and makes it easy to accrue an a...

Re: Arcades, the Strategist: Wall-Ball Combo

Shrieking Drake is definitely a great adaptation since it helps Aluren go off faster and more consistently without needing Cloudstone Curio.

Bloom Tender got stupid expensive over time. I'm pretty confident that they'll reprint it at some point, so hang on?

Re: Ephara, God of the Polis

Thanks for the game reports, [mention]WizardMN[/mention]. One of my favorite things to read on these forums is game reports and I like your consistency in doing so.

Based on your list, I think that the Gearhulk could go. Archaeomancer is probably good enough for the job on the recursion element.
