I've played against him hundreds of times and still learn from games.
Whether it's Cube, commander, Vintage, or whatever I learn a lot from those games.

The real question is how partner commanders will be handled.
I've thought about it and gave each partner there own slot, when they are chosen they will get the partner that would best work for helping the chosen partner.
Hope that made sense
Nov 28, 2018Planning episode two tonight at 6:15 PST.Posted in: Commander (EDH)
Come down to
And we can make a deck together, hope to see you there
Had a lot of fun with episode one
Nov 28, 2018Posted in: Multiplayer Commander DecklistsQuote from trancer99 »I am a bit unsure on how something works, can you explain it for me?
Find Tezzeret, the seeker , minus him to find throne of geth. Bounce Tezz then sac throne to bring him to 5 and Aminatou to 3. Use Tezz to find The Chain veil and Activate. Now bounce tezz again and get Mana vault and tap it. Use tezz to untap vault and chain veil and repeat for infinite planeswalker activations. Find Sensei's divining top and check top 3. If a combo is on top take it, otherwise activate tezz and shuffle. Repeat
How does this make infinite activations? it looks like you would not have enough mana unless you are getting an extra 1 mana from a source I don't see.
I took apart the deck recently but here's how it works:
Tezzeret the Seeker [-2] getting Throne of Geth.
Aminatou [-1] on Tezzeret. Use Throne of Geth (can just sacrifice to itself if need be) to put Tezzeret on 5 loyalty. You can now get the The Chain Veil and still have Tezzeret remain in play. As long as you have the 4 to activate it, you can look to go infinite.
Activate the The Chain Veil with 4. Aminatou [-1] Tezzeret, and now he'll have two activation's. Tezzeret [-X] to search for Mana Vault/Sol Ring/Mana Crypt/Grim Monolith and tap for mana. Tezzeret [+1] to untap The Chain Veil and Mana Vault/Sol Ring/Mana Crypt/Grim Monolith to activate The Chain Veil again. Now you can Aminatou [-1] Tezzeret and he'll have 3 activation's. You just need to make sure you start searching for colored artifact sources so that you can recast Aminatou from the commander zone.
Nov 28, 2018Once I figure out the cuts I can work on adding lands or mana rocks as well. I don't think it needs too much of a change but likely at least some talismans as well. As far as twitch or youtube goes, I don't know, I started less than a week agoPosted in: Multiplayer Commander Decklists
Nov 28, 2018Posted in: Multiplayer Commander DecklistsQuote from benjameenbear »What's your audience like for your YouTube and Twitch channels?
Yeah, Niv is even more busted than I thought. I underestimated how much raw card advantage he can accrue over the course of a game, much less a turn cycle. He's awesome.
The audience will be very relaxed. Just joking and messing around while building for the random general. Then I edit it down for a smaller youtube video
Yeah I've had a lot of good interaction with Niv, personal favorites include a brainstorm and bazaar to kill someone's daretti in response to an obliterate
Nov 26, 2018I think those are a good start. I really want to try Thousand year elixer, treasonous ogre, and bloodcheif as well on top of those.Posted in: Multiplayer Commander Decklists
I have really enjoyed Niv in the deck so far. It's actually castable and the biggest threat (Notion theif) dies right away when I draw for the turn so that's also a perk. I know that as far as cuts go the combo pieces would be first to go and possible 1 reanimation spell since I would be more able to hard cast now thanks to Kydele. I can Niv "Bad Nezahal" but that still makes it pretty damn solid, especially since we can abuse it more than Nezahal with our own spells.
Also some self promotion:
I started a twitch channel in which I will brew EVERY commander in edh and post that on my youtube channel as well. If you love brewing as much as I do then I would love to see you there.
Nov 26, 2018Hey guys, I'm starting a new project for the commander deck builder in all of us. I want to make a video for EVERY legendary creature in which I brew a decklist. Here's the fun part, I want you to help.Posted in: Commander (EDH)
Follow the link to my twitch account and using some good old RNG we will make a decklist for a general today, maybe two, maybe three, who knows. I have no idea who will even come up or if they will even be good or not but the plan is to make a list for EVERY general possible, banned, partners, even some goofy ones eventually but this is a project to finally have a channel with decklists on every possible general. And to make it not biased and more interesting I want to do it with my chat.
First video on youtube
(An intro to the project)
Episode one has already been done and will be on my youtube channel soon.
Episode two to be filmed soon! People who brew with me get credit with the deck as well and you can have your name on a deck database for every commander.
Hope to see you soon
Nov 24, 2018Here's all the cards I'm considering for Kydele/SmasherPosted in: Multiplayer Commander Decklists
Wheel of fortune (1st Priority)
Timetwister (1st Priority)
Windfall (1st Priority)
Notion Theif (1st Priority)
Waste not (Also really good)
Teferi's puzzle box (Probably not)
Gilded lotus (Midrange goodness)
Emrakul, the promised end (Amazing finisher)
Bloodcheif ascension (Good with everything added)
Treasonous ogre (Great midrange and combo)
Kruphix, god of horizons (Ramp storage?)
Bring to light (Finds thief, reanimation, or wheels
Mana vault (Eh)
Villanous Wealth (It's cute)
Staff of domination (Combo piece)
Umbral mantle ( Combo piece)
Lightning greaves (Probably not)
Bloom Tender (Ramp)
Ulamog, the ceaseless hunger (Good when cast)
Regrowth (Eldrazi synergy)
Eternal witness (Same)
Treasure cruise (Weeee)
Sword of the paruns (Probably not)
Thousand-year elixer (Seems ideal with Kydele combo)
Nov 23, 2018Posted in: Multiplayer Commander DecklistsQuote from benjameenbear »I think the only thing I would be concerned with is Kydele's casting cost. 4 CMC for a do nothing spell on T3/T4 (maybe T2 depending on your hand) is a little bit of a stretch in my opinion, but I could be wrong. I will admit that once you can resolve her and protect her for a turn cycle that you can then Wheel your hand and go crazy with the amount of mana she can generate from chaining Wheels together. And you've mentioned the Can-trip layer too, which is good.
I really like the Cut // Ribbonss idea. 4 damage kills pretty much every relevant creature in cEDH. And having the Ribbons be an additional finisher with Kydele is just too good to pass up.
Totally didn't get that Vial Smasher looks at the TOTAL CMC of a spell. Killing someone with Logic Knot finally makes sense, since you can exile most of your 'yard to fuel a huge X spell and kill someone with Vial's trigger. Reading the card is tech!
I've generally observed that the only true Combo deck that is all-in on the Combo are Nauseam Storm decks and Flash Hulk decks. Every other archetype seems to have shifted to bringing in more control and card advantage elements. Of the two, I think that Flash Hulk is the more resilient of the two based on my limited experience.
Nearly all the cards are 3 mana or less so casting Kydele early isn't a concern, games, where I cast Thrasios on turn 1 or 2, are actually pretty bad since that means I don't have anything better to do. I figure I use her more as value when I set up for a wheel and dump a fatty on board. With theif/wheel I can use her for a massive Cut/Ribbons to kill everyone.
I've found that Worldgorger is decent but yes, not quite the level of Food chain, hulk, or Ad Naseum, so more reason to change that. I could always switch to Hulk but...I don't wanna so maybe Kydele is the way to go. It also lets me try out cards I normally wouldn't like Puzzle box, Waste Not, Kruphix?, and treasonous ogre. Plus Blood chief ascension works as a kill condition, works with smasher, and can gain us life back from reanimation. I think switching to midrange makes reanimator more focused rather than combo and that's always been the plan to begin with. Plus theif/Wheel is pretty much an instant win anyway, if you have 28 cards in hand and opponents have none it's hard to lose
