EDH Deck Time – Updating Kadena

Morphs are a favored archetype of mine. I just love them. The imbalance of information is fun for me. Sure, that also has a downside as that often means that you are the target.

The problem is more with the 2-drops, but Guilds does give this deck some long game… and Dead Weight. Granted, it’s no Fatal Push, but cheap removal is extremely important in a deck like this, especially since you have no usable discard.
