EDH Deck Time: Thrasios + Eligeth

Eligeth seems like a commander I would enjoy, but where to find a good partner? There’s two other potential partners that have the word scry printed on them, so that does limit certain aspects quite a bit. Thrasios seems like the better one simply due to the extra color, although the activated ability of Thrasios has limited utilty with Eligeth, as the ramping aspect is more random than usual if you draw the first card instead of scry.

EDH Deck Time: Breeches and Kediss

Breeches, Brazen PlundererKediss, Emberclaw Familiar

So, hear me out: If you have both of these on the table, each time you deal combat damage to a player, that damage gets copied to other opponents as well by Kediss. But Breeches doesn’t require combat damage, any damage is enough. Also, Kediss states that the original source is also the source of the new damage. So, you can get three cards exiled in a three player game. Not that you can count that as three card advantage, since there is no way you can play all of them, but it will give you plenty of options.

EDH Deck Time: Brokkos

Recently I returned to the actual world of Commander after a hiatus of couple of years. After such a long time, what do you play? It’s sort of a special occasion and I also knew I wouldn’t be playing any more actively in the near future, so I knew I had to do something I would find especially enjoyable.

So, I went top-down. Well, most Commander decks are very much top-down with either the Commander itself or a tribal theme or something to similar to work down from. However, I decided to use a theme very specific to me: The art on my walls.

EDH Deck Time: Yarok Ninjas

Honestly, my reason to do this is that Seth mentioned this idea on Commander Clash couple of episodes ago and I’ve been thinking about this for a long time, so I decided to do this before Seth could. Not that there’s that much to do here, as most of this stuff just writes itself, although I bet my approach is somewhat different from what anyone else would have done.

EDH Deck Time: Big Game Hunt

For some reason Chevill, Bane of Monsters reminded me of Sir Hammerlock from Borderlands franchise, so why not build a deck around that? This is a continuation on this.

I don’t think Hammerlock would actually be black, but don’t tell anyone. He is a hunter, but he has (at least in the beginning) naturalist motivations, as he is interested in conservation more than killing. It just so happens that these attempts don’t quite go as planned and these rare creatures just happen end up as trophies on his wall. Later on, the character is depicted more as a hunter, who is interested in learning about these exotic creatures. His method just happens to be to pay someone to kill them.

EDH Deck Time – Karlov and his Nightmarish Cat

After my Nethroi and Umori combo I started to think about other potential companions. Lurrus of the Dream-Den seems like a very antithetical companion for EDH, so hypothetically what would one do with it?

There’s only two options for commander.

Ayli, Eternal PilgrimKarlov of the Ghost Council

Although they do pretty much the same thing, I decided to go with the latter.

EDH Deck Time: Borderlands (yes, the video game)

I was watching EDH and Chill, where they had a video game theme. What game would I use for such a purpose? I’ll probably make a series of this at some point, because games like Binding of Isaac and Dishonored (both of which I actually like more than the game I’m about to go into) would make interesting decks as well.

But, as I’ve been playing plenty of Borderlands 3 lately, Borderlands it is. But with a very specific view of the world.
