Quote from HandsomeP »Despite the fact that the frame around Cascading Cataracts has a goldish hue, the card is in fact colorless and can be played with a colorless commander, correct?

Quote from ages ago »I had chosen Deathgreeter to replace Blood Artist because I didn't want to end up leeching the table while trying to combo with Gonti or Sepulchral Primordial instead. However, most of the combos involve a sacrifice outlet and I usually have one out anyway. This means I can just soften people up (particularly as a solution to lifegainers) from the Blood Artist triggers if I'm going for a different win condition, while helping enable a combat win condition and being a backup win condition itself.

Is Sheldon really complaining about a turn 5 Sorin which doesn't even kill a player by turn 7 and did nothing the rest of the game, which went to turn 14 with the guy targeted by Sorin still alive, and equate that to an arms race to knock the player with Sorin out of the game by turn 4?
Quote from JaishivaJai »Is Razaketh, the Foulblooded a better choice? I still like Vilis, Broker of Blood as a budget option substitute (Razaketh is $10-12 while vilis is about $1.) Razaketh has trample, which can't be ignored with 8 power. Vilis can get chump blocked out easily.
Quote from GloriousGoose »Officially got the primer tag.
Unfortunately it looks like the forum is going to be split so I'll look into maintaining a thread on Nexus as well when I'm not working all the time.
Quote from tarotplz »Praetor's Grasp felt a bit underwhelming, turns out stopping only one of many combos that could win the game on the spot was often not enough.
Quote from tarotplz »In my long quest to find ways to deal with Ground Seal & Co I'm considering testing Ugin, the Ineffable. Has anyone done any testing with him?
Also, Blast Zone should probably be in this deck, don't know why I didn't add it sooner.
Quote from GloriousGoose »36 lands is where I landed in my head, so it's nice to see others there, as well. It's not necessarily accurate or relevant for me since I run so many X spells and a commander with an activated ability that costs mana, but what's your curve at? Currently, excluding lands, I'm sitting at 3.21. Obviously Chainer is mana-intensive as well, so I think it's best to lean towards too much mana rather than not enough. I'm sure you recognize the power of a mana sink in the command zone.
Quote from GloriousGoose »As for games being few and far between, I hear you. I've played more Magic in a week than I have in months since I moved to a proper city. It's glorious.
Quote from lyonhaert »Seasoned Pyromancer is not worth $27 in EDH. I'll wait until it rotates out of Standard, I guess.
Quote from Tyler 7888 »I just want to know how competitive can Yawgmoth be?
Quote from Tears of Tomorrow (post EU) »He's as competitive as a monocolored deck can be in this format. I call him the best mono-black commander by a mile, but the lack of diverse answers to enemy strategies might hurt. But I really need to reiterate: what I feel holds him back is the color identity, NOT the abilities: those are perfectly viable in even 100% cEDH.
Quote from darrenhabib »I'd give him the perfect score of 5/7.
