Jan 30, 2014I ran it in my Ruhan of the Fomori 1 v 1 deck. It was based around eliminating blockers and killing with General damage. Otherwise it doesn't do enough for me. I would much rather spend one more mana and use Echoing Truth.Posted in: Commander (EDH)

I was far from enthusiastic in my suggestion. Just the fact that Godo has an innate multiple attack phase ability means that the effect will trigger more then once.
I don't think I will run it honestly, I was just trying to find a reasonable use for the card in EDH.
Jan 21, 2014Posted in: Commander (EDH)Quote from CommanderZAnother "bad card doesn't fit into any existing deck". Perhaps he requires different deck? This guy surely has potential to mill fast, in a deck built around him.
If I want to mill in UB I'll use Oona, Queen of the Fae. I don't like filling my opponents graveyards overmuch.
Boring design. Easier ways to mill in EDH.
Jan 19, 2014Auto include in my blink decks but doesn't make the cut in any deck that isn't blink themed. Can be used with stick.Posted in: Commander (EDH)

6cc mana shenanigans VS 4cc indestructible card draw?
Between being an enchantment and potentially a creature being indestructible isn't going to help much in my meta.
Jan 7, 2014The ability to conditionally shut off one's draw can be useful.Posted in: Commander (EDH)
I have used it in 60 decks but never EDH. I agree that Zendruu would be a good fit.
Jan 6, 2014Posted in: Commander (EDH)Quote from BetweenWallsDo you consider 6 a multitude, or do people just gravitate toward hexproof in your area?
- Geist of Saint Traft
- Lazav, Dimir Mastermind
- Sigarda, Host of Herons
- Thrun, the Last Troll
- Uril, the Miststalker
- Zuo Ci, the Mocking Sage
I dislike hexproof as well, and think shroud should be utilized more than it is. My least favorite generals are those that do the same thing every game. Some of the usual suspects:
I guess I don't mind super consistent generals that aren't played as much. 1 game and put away? No big deal.
I think six in the last few years is too many. If you look at lists of generals newer ones tend to be more common.
In my small group we have Uril, Geist and Sigarda. That is enough that I see Hexproof generals every time I sit down.
- Geist of Saint Traft
Jan 5, 2014Posted in: Commander (EDH)Quote from Ryujin1. Seems like you are too attached to your board state. A good healthy game of commander has multiple wraths as sometimes everything just needs to die.
Also, if you are unable to recover when the board is wrathed you are in trouble; if you don't play them other people will.
2. All is Dust, Oblivion Ring, and Nevinyrral's Disk can be played in any deck. There are also multiple ways to sweep the board in every color.
3. Making flavor based decisions is fine, but it is silly to complain about your opponents' strategies if you refuse to play perfectly reasonable answers to them.
6 mana is very reasonable for what Eye of Doom does, and should be fine unless you are playing ultra-competitively.
1- Depends on the deck, some are board dependent, most aren't.
2- Oblivion Ring can be played in any deck? (It also targets)
3- I am complaining about Hexproof, I am not complaining about my opponents utilizing Hexproof. Do you see the difference? I think putting Hexproof on a multitude of legendary creatures was a bad decision.
I didn't say 6 was unreasonable just it is slow, particularly if you have to tutor for it. I certainly didn't dismiss the card.
Jan 5, 2014Shinriko posted a message on Gettin' the shaft again! Gettin' it in the eeeennnnd!!!Posted in: Commander (EDH)Quote from Skeptical MarioHere's my rule of thumb:
The worst card in any color cycle is the red one, unless another color has lifegain as its differentiating effect.
It's not absolute, but I'd bet at least 80% of cycles hold to this rule.
Martyr cycle claims an exception.
Martyr of Sands
Martyr of Ashes
Martyr of Frost
Martyr of Bones
Martyr of Spores
I bumped up Frost because of creature type.
Jan 5, 2014Posted in: Commander (EDH)
1-Because the deck I was running was heavily creature based.
2-I am running colors without a lot of sweepers.
3-Doesn't fit theme of deck.
And yes Eye of Doom is another answer, albeit one that costs 6 manna to use.
Jan 4, 2014The ones with built in Hexproof. At least Shroud effected the person playing the deck. Now I am forced to run Glaring Spotlight in decks that don't have enough sweep effects.Posted in: Commander (EDH)
I don't want to run super narrow cards like Glaring Spotlight.
Jan 2, 2014I actually ran it and it's brother in my Sekki, Seasons' Guide deck. Got a kill or two off of them and it became a running joke at the table that they were target #1 when they hit the table.Posted in: Commander (EDH)
