Quote from zombee_hunt »Can you explain the doomsday lines in more detail. For example does there have to be certain cards in hand and how to accomplish teh combo then. Thanks.
Quote from DreadBeardSanta »So how do you play around necropotence if it exiles your discards
Quote from Blitz Reloaded »So guys, why you got the Ad Nauseam and friends package, and Doomsday, but not Necrologia?
Quote from MrCoupon »So is Ramunap Excavator pretty dope for this deck or naw?
Quote from ixtermanator »Hi, really enjoy this deck I was just wondering though. Why don't you run Manabond? I mean it's hardcore ramp, a discard outlet, and it's 1 green so it won't hurt when we hit it with Ad Nauseam.
Quote from GoldenCapitalist »So I see that you don't actually have a section in your primer for comparing Jarad to Meren! What would you say the main differences are between the two commanders, from your perspective?

razzliox, I'd love to hear your updates on the following from a competitive game play perspective, i.e. the following may work, and be very clear to explain in a goldfishing scenario, but may be more vulnerable to disruption:
1 - Dakmor Salvage to generate draw triggers with every flipped land
2 - When you hit Gaea's Blessing or Kozilek, immediately shuffle (there may be edges cases covered by the algorithm, but this works in practice)
3 - Repeat (there may be some edge cases that are covered more fully in your algorithm and proof, mazeTemporal) until draw trigger > number of cards in deck. I find in practice this takes about 5-6 loops to a shuffle trigger.
4 - Draw deck
5 - Discard Kozilek, shuffle into library, and draw so all remaining draw triggers are removed from stack (so we can play non-instants)
5 - Lotus petal, crack for one mana
6 - Discard four lands generating four draw triggers, discard Kozilek shuffling library. mazeTemporal, do you consider this the simplest base case for which you can show every possibility leads, in a finite number of steps, to drawing the entire library to repeat step 5? Of course you can do it with less discarded lands, but it seems in those cases you can only say that you can draw your library with arbitrarily close to 1 probability. For example, say you crack Lotus Petal, discard land (draw trigger), Kozilek shuffle, but the order of the library is not with the petal in the third slot, then you have to shuffle with the first dredge and repeat until petal is in third slot, which will get arbitrarily close to one, but in an infinite number of steps.
So, in the above, crack Petal, 4x land/draw triggers, Kozilek. If at least one land in top 2, then we increase our draw triggers and repeat. If Petal and Kozilek in top two, then bottom four are lands. Dredge, hitting two lands, draw the last two lands, shuffle, and then draw 4-card library with 4+ draw triggers on stack.
Quote from mazeTemporal »Oh, looks like you forgot Ash Barrens.
What is your opinion on Crystal Vein?
Quote from Welgo »Pretty interested in this lately. Willing to give a really dedicated response to Gaea's Blessing? I've been fond of the card for ages and seeing it here is honestly what caused me to invest in the deck during trades for other decks. Im inherently a UB player but since I was a kid, GB has been my favorite color combo aesthetically. Please help convince me to run this deck and help participate to its growth :]

Things i'm looking for in a Commander
-Allows me to play powerful blue cards
-Allows me to generate card advantage
+Bonus Points if it synergies well with artifacts
