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.

[draft]Eligeth, Crossroads Augur
Thrasios, Triton Hero[/draft]

EDH Deck Time: Breeches and Kediss

[draft]Breeches, Brazen Plunderer
Kediss, Emberclaw Familiar[/draft]

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 – Karlov and his Nightmarish Cat

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

There’s only two options for commander.

[draft]Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim
Karlov of the Ghost Council[/draft]

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

EDH Deck Time: Nethroi + Umori

[draft]Nethroi, Apex of Death
Umori, the Collector[/draft]

Just making this more complicated for myself by including Umori in all this, but why not? The format is supposed to be about fun, right? Also, I don’t really play white, because of reasons (it’s my least favorite color, which lead me into not really investing in white cards, which has saved me a lot of money over the years), so this is going to be Golgari despite Nethroi’s color identity. I’m not going to stay away from free white sources, so technically you can cast Nethroi without mutating, but that is not the plan.

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.
