Oct 17, 2018Still working on my 2018 set reviews, but no major changes have been made to this deck list this year, still maintaining, and would love to hear if anyone has any suggestions / synergies that are working for them; but my build has been performing very well for a while now.Posted in: Multiplayer Commander Decklists
Oct 17, 2018So this deck has quickly become one of my absolute favorites. I would urge others to mimic voltron / combo decks when they can, its such a power deck strategy type.Posted in: Multiplayer Commander Decklists
I have begun work on a sister deck to this one, Enemies of Asgard, which is a deck built around Hela, the goddess of death. That post should be out in the next month or two. I am still cutting cards from my list.
Oct 7, 2018really surprised to see the cut of candelabra, power artifact, AND spellskite. All have proven very valueable to me over time. Has Shackles proven worth it?Posted in: Multiplayer Commander Decklists

I was happy to help, but good job working with the primer committee, addressing their feedback, and making sure to put in the legwork to get their approval. Let the record show, i was a deny vote a few times during the polishing processQuote from benjameenbear »BOOM. Primer tag awarded to the thread!
Ajacobik, if you ever check back in on the thread or MTGSalvation generally, I think you'll be proud of how the Primer has turned out!
Many thanks also go to LordRewind. Thanks for taking a look at some of the coding to help correct errors and help it look good for the approval process.
Sep 13, 2018Theme / Fun decks. Sure, I have my Teferi deck that I built to rek faces with, but what do i truly enjoy, and what decks do i never tire of? Mishra, Urza, and Thor. I am currently building a Hela deck to counter Thor, so i can say I have both the Brothers War, and Asgard and its enemies as the 4 decks i mostly play.Posted in: Commander (EDH)
its god damn beautiful
Sep 4, 2018Just saw i got a mention in the credits section. Much love BenBearBroPosted in: Multiplayer Commander Decklists
Aug 23, 2018I thought about running it in my blind seer deck as a great way to color hose people (just change the color of their first spell), but it was very mana consumptive to use, and as a mono color deck vs multi color decks, sometimes it didnt have the impact i wanted.Posted in: Commander (EDH)
Aug 22, 2018Had another game last weekend. Table was:Posted in: Multiplayer Commander Decklists
Blind Seer - Me.
Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire (Jund Goodstuff)
Trostani, Selesnya's Voice (Go wide token life gain)
Dragonlord Ojutai (not quite sure what his strategy was, seemed like a UW control deck).
I spent my early game controlling a fast ramping Vaevictis and trying to keep him off the table. Used Wrath of Merit Lage to delay him, then boxed him out HARD by eventually sticking back to basics. 10/10 would recommend. I protected myself for a long time with a bunch of pro red flying faeries. I am starting to think that there may be value in more pro-x fliers than pro-x ground troops. Leaning towards including cerulean wyvern - though i hate the 5cmc.
Game dragged for a while, Ojutai got killed by Trostani, who was looking strong until i hit a wash out, and blew away all white permanents (after vaevictis was already fairly under control). It straight up wrecked all my opponents. Followed it with a Will Breaker. Now THATS a card. Holy moley is he strong. I kept the table under control at that point with a fist full of counter magic and alpha striked Vaevictis with stolen cards. I then dropped Akroma's Memorial, and began the long haul of whittling down Trostani's life with commander damage. He scooped shortly after i established such strong control, and realized that he wasnt going to sneak a spell by to kill will breaker free his dudes. At some point, i also stuck invoke prejudice, and it made it really hard for the green mages to afford all their critters, even with their piles of mana, because it was so late in the game i could tap a small stack of lands to convert what little i had stolen in their upkeep.
I gotta say, the deck feels so weak, until you get a grasp on the game, then its surprisingly lethal. Didnt hurt that there was a lot of green in the game, and my deck is already tilted towards killing green, and i had an early game 1/1 flier pro red to prevent vaevictis from completely wrecking me.

TL;DR up front - Artifacts are weak and uninspiring. Honestly, the best card in the set from my perspective is likey Stolen Strategy, and its not great if you can afford superior enchantments.
- Zndrsplt, Eye of Wisdom - I am not super excited about this card, but it does provide another means of drawing cards for us. If you run a more chaotic Mishra and include Krark's Thumb, this could be a great card for you.
- Chakram Retriever - With the right mana dorks, this card could be very abusable in a storm variant. That said, at 5cmc its very expensive for a non artifact.
- Fumble - Meta specific, but my god is this strong against voltrons.
- Spellseeker - great card, though idk if it fits Mishra.
- Okaun, Eye of Chaos - Again, if you are going hard on chaos and rocking the thumb, this guy MIGHT work well in Mishra, but not without his partner.
- Stolen Strategy - oh man, this one has legs. We could steal an artifact and get value. Not consistent, but would be a great budget card for mishra!
- Thrilling Encore - Only really useful card I've seen in this set for Mishra, could help us recover from a board wipe. That said, not a trick i want to hold 5 mana for unless I am running a VERY creature heavy variant.
- Sentinel Tower - Frankly, the only card worthy of mention, and its really just useful in a storm / eggs mishra deck, and considering that we build up storm count via artifact cycling, its really not useful. Artifacts in general are a dud from this set.
- Last One Standing - 3 mana board wipe can be pretty damn clutch, even if 1 creature sneaks by. Most decks in my meta are go wide, and rarely have a single key creature.
Nothing to see here
Let me know if you think I missed a noteworthy card and why and i'll add it to this list!

I consider this very high praise. Thank you very much!Quote from benjameenbear »I'm not sure why this is the first time I'm seeing this decklist, but this is the most winning Vorthos deck of all time. If I could upvote it, I would. Well done!
Aug 14, 2018Posted in: Multiplayer Commander DecklistsQuote from BasedFuster »Question, what would be some good substitutes for the most expensive cards in this list such as Timetwister, Tabernacle, and power artifact? The most I'm willing to splurge for this deck right now is a Mana crypt and maybe grim monolith. I don't have Mox diamond either but I think I can either trade an extra city of traitors for it or get a Lotus petal to run instead.
If it helps focus the suggestions a bit, what cards could help tune this deck to better fight aggro strategies? I know they're probably not the most competitive strategies to fight but they are the most dominant locally.
Timetwister can be replaced to some degree by Windfall.
Power Artifact is a lot harder to replace, but instead maybe consider running additional 'sol' permanents since it is an alternative for creating mana for your chain veil combo.
Tabernacle CAN be replaced by Pendrell Mists, but its one of those cards that incredibly difficult to replace. If your objective is to reduce aggro amounts, alternatives like crawlspace might be more affordable / consistent. Or even something like Portcullis depending on your meta.
Can you describe what sorts of aggro decks you are facing? Are you seeing decks like krenko, where tokens are going wide, causing problems, or are you facing more voltron / single attacker decks that create a single game ending threat (Uril, Rafiq, Zur, Narset, etc).
Aug 14, 2018My apologies everyone, my office got crazy this month, and I took some time away from MTGSalv to focus on getting my project out the door on time. I am back now and I intend to catch up and post some updatesPosted in: Multiplayer Commander Decklists
Jun 22, 2018Dear god...creates tokens to defend us. Draws tons of cards...ult wins the game.Posted in: Multiplayer Commander Decklists
Best PW printed for Mishra...potentially to date...well, both Daretti are great too...but man, hes pretty awesome.
Jun 10, 2018What a ridiculously fun deck. Made some minor tweaks to my list. Dropped Volcanic Eruption, never seemed to work out to be useful when I needed it, added in back to basics in its place. I also want to work capsize into my 99. Did not miss the swords of x and y at all, the deck is a blast even without them. Hibernation straight up wins games in this deck, all star of my weekend.Posted in: Multiplayer Commander Decklists
What about a cute combo in the deck, and throwing in Mind over Matter and Temple Bell?
After thinking about it, a cute combo just seems like it would start to warp my build over time. My deck would slowly start to morph into a deck that is more about comboing and seeking out the combo then controlling colors or manipulating the game. No combo!
