    Treasury Thrull


    Upgrading from yesterday's damage trigger to today's attack trigger, but that mana cost is rough.

    Next time you complain about reprint policies, complain that this wasn't in the cat tribal precon for me.

    What they ought to do is remake karona except not terrible.


    I think you may have misspelled terrifying. Karona is terrifying. It's like 5-color command zone craterhoof.

    Do you think there will be a third commander anthology? If so, which decks would like to see reprinted?


    If they don't foil my zedruu, I'm rioting.

    Hey there,

    I love this deck. I recently built my own version of it (http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/master-pai-meis-one-inch-punch/?cb=1543334443) if you're interested in peeping my list. I'm so excited to start taking it out for a spin. There was an old Extended list by LSV that won with Brain Freeze / Mind's Desire and I've always wanted to port it over to EDH, and your deck was the perfect shell.

    I like your Arcbond combo, and I have a Boros deck that also wins with Arcbond. I thought I'd share my tech. There are two unique cards with a Pariah effect: Palisade Giant and Saving Grace. Both of these cards are different from Pariah, since they also absorb damage to permanents along with your life total. If you make a Palisade Giant or Saving Grace'd creature indestructible, you can cast Arcbond on it and then the next point of damage you take will be reflected out to all creatures. Pariah effect absorbs it back, then reflects it again, and again, and again. It forms a recursive loop that would draw the game, except your opponents take infinite damage so the loop ends when they die.

    Since Saving Grace has flash, it's very easy/possible to flash this combo in response to damage to win on the spot. Thought you'd like the idea to see if it fits in your setup. Cheers.

    Thanks for the inspiration!


    I'm sorry I missed this for like 2 months somehow.

    I like the Saving Grace tech, but I might have to technically classify it as too efficient. 3 cards and the condition that one of my creatures gets damaged is probably restrictive enough, but all 3 of those cards being instant speed combat tricks might be a little much. Going from Zedruu and 6 untapped lands to "gg, next game" off of someone attacking me feels pretty aggressive for my tastes.

    I see Thousand-Year Storm and Experimental Frenzy in your list. Those izzet cards have certainly caught my eye, storm and "you may look at the top card of your library" being some of my favorite text to see in magic.

    Hey man, first i gotta gratz you for the awesome deck, i got excited just by reading the idea. Now, i gotta make a sad question (for me): Do you think the overall theme of the deck could be achieved by cuting the most expensive cards? In other words, do you think a budget version of this deck would work? Im seriously thinking on buying it, mainly bc i love Zedruu, but unfortunately it is out of my price range. I was thinking on cuting some of the duo lands and most of the cards that cost more than $40 dollars (i live in brazil, mtg is really expensive here). Anyways, thanks for reading and cheers for the cool deck!


    Absolutely. And if you're playing with a bunch of basics and don't mind shuffling, Oath of Lieges is a sweet card here. I took a quick look at what's been in this deck since I made the thread here, and while some things like Vedalken Orrery or Rest in Peace are cards I think of as expensive, the only really big price tag that's been in the whole time is Time Spiral, and wouldn't you know it, they're about to print Emergency Powers which will almost certainly be a relatively attainable card shortly after set release. Almost no single card here is critically important, as long as you draw everyone into interesting things with Howling Mines, ramp to your interesting stuff with some mana rocks, and then play stupid permanents that throw off everyone else's plans, you should have a fun time. If you need inspiration for things to replace the cards you don't want to pay for, check the change log. There's a bunch of bulk cardboard in there that I've enjoyed profusely.

    High Tide


    What do you think the average number of times High Tide is cast is in turns where High Tide is cast?

    Myriad Landscape


    One of the nicer lands given to us by Commander specific products.

    Declare Dominance


    The flavor of this card implies that the target survives being blocked by everything, and I wonder how common that could actually be.

    There will be a 1 day hiatus tomorrow while I freeze to death in the snowy mountains.

    Oros, the Avenger


    I'm happy we haven't done this one before, just so I get to type Oros, the Avenger. Of the hit and they do something dragons, I think this one suffers least or close to least from the "no, don't die from commander damage, I want to keep hitting you!" effect.

    Diabolic Servitude


    4 mana reanimation is a fine rate, but this being a non-aura enchantment with multiple connected abilities, you can do weird things with it in really specific circumstances like you would with O-ring.

    Bringer of the Black Dawn


    Bringer of the color identity frustration. That applies to this whole cycle.

    It's mana-fixing that might Lava Axe someone.

    Do you think they stop at this one, or keep coming up with words that begin with "tr"?

    Trostani Discordant


    Getting new cards is fun. Somebody figure out for me where that last ability came from.
