Purphoros wasn't fun me nor my opponents. You either win fast or get hated out by everyone else.
Nicol Bolas also didn't work for me. I'm not a big fan of the color combination and only ever used him with a haste enabler to seal the deal, but it never felt very satisfying.

May 30, 2015Scute Mob is also pretty good in my regular EDH Yisan deck, but idk if you can get to five lands consistently enough. A deathtouch blocker to flash in with Yisan is also nice to have (something like Deadly Recluse).Posted in: Variant Commander Decklists

Are you sure you need green in the deck? It seems like it could work as monoblue or maybe UR instead.
Red can still accellerate you (Simian Spirit Guide, Pyretic Ritual, Manamorphose for fixing) and gives you haste granters like Uncanny Speed. You can even run Through the Breach as a backup plan if you happen to draw a colossus.
May 27, 2015Interesting deck and really nice take on the commander.Posted in: Multiplayer Commander Decklists
I was thinking of making a morph deck myself and stumbled onto this thread. I have 8 EDH decks (Sygg, Jarad, Tajic, Brago, Purphoros, Intet, Yisan and a monoblack deck with several commander options) and this would be my ninth, but I have some questions for those who have played it:
1. How frustrating is the deck to play against? I play in a rather low-powered group and several of my decks are already frowned upon a lot (Brago being the major offender), even if I run very few counterspells\removal and play no infinite combos. It seems that the power level of the deck would be about right with some adjustments, but I do not want the deck to draw me additional hate.
2. Does the deck have enough win conditions? If the gameplan is to win with creature beats I think I'd play a couple more fatties (like Sagu Mauler even if it's boring) or something like Biomass Mutation, is there something I am missing?
3. My first instinct with Kruphix would be to play cards like Frontier Siege or Elemental Resonance that provide a sizeable amount of mana each turn, but I did not see them being run in any of the Kruphix decks I've checked. Are the cards suggested simply not good or what? (Mana Reflection and the expensive mana rocks would be way over my budget for the deck).
Apr 4, 2015Your decklist would help btw.Posted in: Commander (EDH)
Avenger of Zendikar is pretty good as a finisher. It's better than the baloths, but you can run both I guess.
Butcher of Malakir is not half bad either once you get a sacrifice outlet and any token generator\recurrable creature (like Bloodghast or Reassembling Skeleton).
Sheoldred and Terastodon are pretty good too.
If you're looking for big bodies to sac with Jarad, Sewer Nemesis is your guy. Haven't checked its price but shouldn't be that much, and it's really good in my build. Another one you might want is Phyrexian Devourer, since you can respond to the sacrifice trigger with other activations of the exile ability, and basically get an arbitrarily large fatty to fling at your enemies. I do not run it because I'd feel dirty to win that way, but I guess it works.
Non-creature finishers like Rise of the Dark Realms, Necromantic Selection, Worst Fears, Grave Betrayal also work.

I put Pact of Negation in. I'll try it for a while to see how I like it; I also have Tolaria West in the deck for some added situational synergy. I'm playing a fair share of ramp artifacts (and Tezzeret and Teferi for nasty untap tricks) so I hope that'll help too.
Sword of Vengeance doesn't seem that great. I have the swords in another deck which is a bit more tuned, and I'm trying to build Brago as a cheap fun deck for less competitive games. I think I might go with some auras instead (Heliod's Pilgrim is like 1/10000 of the cost of a Stoneforge lol), even though they are more susceptible to sweepers.
And you're probably right about the well.

Don't underestimate haste. Stealthsuit tbh looks fairly weak to me, and boots aren't even that expensive to warrant a "cheaper" alternative.
I am in the process of building my own Brago deck, and I was wondering how many slots in the deck should I devote to protecting my general. I currently have only two counterspells (Swan Song and Forbid), boots, greaves, Pentarch Ward and that's pretty much it. I'd play more, but it's so hard to find space for all the things I want to play in the deck.
Would you consider Pact of Negation? I have a copy lying there unused and was wondering if it could be good in the deck.
How many equipments should I run? Which ones? Keep in mind that Stoneforge is out of my budget so I have no means to fetch equipments. Also, how important are the swords for the deck?
Have you considered Well of Ideas? It looks like a good blink target, although a bit expensive.
Mar 25, 2015It really depends on which kind of deck you are playing.Posted in: Commander (EDH)
"Staple" cards might be Bloodghast, Blood Artist, Withered Wretch, Nezumi Graverobber, Dark Confidant if your curve is low enough, Reassembling Skeleton. In some decks, cards like Pack Rat, Nantuko Shade, Kiku, Night's Flower and Skirsdag High Priest are also viable.
