Here is my brand new EDH deck with Gwendlyn Di Corci as my general. There's no real theme; it's mostly just UBR good stuff with lots of cards that I like. I'd like it to have Hinder, Profane Command, the Swords, and Withered Wretch, but I don't have any to spare. Ditto on the hybrid lands. The Clout of the Dominus is a placeholder for Lightning Greaves.
Hey, nice general choice rant! I like to see some of the obscure generals getting some play, and this one is really cool. A 3/5 for 4cmc?!? With a good ability too? (and the art/flavor text is hilarious!) Sounds good to me.
If your going the ability abuse route, hit up Freed from the Real and Pemin's Aura. How good they are simply correleates with how good your manabase is, but all you need is a U or UU to punish opponents.
I love Liliana Vess in multiplayer, as well as Nicol Bolas Planeswalker, dunno if you have him. He's just so fun to play with.
Decree of Pain is pretty classic for any B goodstuff, or any black deck.
Fact of Fiction is a nice form of card draw, because not only is it efficient, in rare cases you can get a friend to give you a good split. that does PISS off the other members of the table though. Also, i personally think Trade Routes is an excellent multiplayer card draw card, you get a nice ally there.
If you really wanted to abuse CIPT abilitites, erratic portal and crystal shard are excellent, but dunno how much you want to commit to that.
Duplicant? Excellnt card, and you have a CIPT creature theme.
Thanks for the help, guys. A lot of the cards you mention I would use but they are in other decks or my Cube (Nicol Bolas, Liliana, Duplicant). I really like the idea of abusing untap with Gwendlyn and I'll look to incorporate those cards. Nice idea! I know I have the rings, elixir, and aura sitting around somewhere. Any suggestions for good creatures to untap? I thought of these:
Cruel Ultimatum and Coalition Relic can probably contribute to this deck. One time I lived the dream of turn 2 Signet, turn 3 Relic, turn 4 Ultimatum. It was too soon to recur a creature but I didn't really mind.
