Green Oozy Storm (phase 2)
Commander

21 Oct by WanderingTaoist

This is not a finished decklist... phase 3 will drop a refined 100 card list with lands.  These are cards I'm finding in my research that have high synergy with Aeve/Ooze/storm. This decklist can be taken different directions: more budget oriented, or more of an overall Ooze theme, or a little ...

Brago, Temporally Infinite
Commander

03 Jun by WanderingTaoist

This deck never dies.  I swear.  Unless you yolo and get mana screwed, you are likely to be the last player standing, and will probably win due to getting infinite turns.  That being said... This deck is purpose built, and is all/only about setting up for infinite turns via Brago flic...

Extus, Combo Overlord
Commander

08 May by ragnarok114

Update 5/2021: Removed Mountain/Plains/Swamp for Altar of Dementia, Cathartic Reunion and Valakut Awakening. The curve of the deck is fairly low and I flooded with too few cards in hand several games in a row. The extra sac outlet and mill were quite nice as well.  Welcome to the Society of the...

Osgir, the Reconstructor - Mill
Commander

18 Apr by ussgraf

Deck Summary This deck is primarily focused on mill, both self-mill and milling opponent's libraries.  For your starting hand you should be aiming to have a draw effect in hand and hopefully a mill card in hand as well, or two of either would be fine as well.  Additionally you'll want a ra...

Thrasios and Tymna - Efficient
Commander

17 Apr by ussgraf

Deck Summary These two partner commanders together are believed to be one of, if not the best commanders in the Commander format.  There's good reason behind this opinion, as these decks can be constructed to be extremely efficient, and the card draw available to the commanders will allow you t...

So, about papa. Main way to build around Parun is wheel archetype, meaning Windfall effects, about which Rule commitee whining so much. With Hullbreacher ban (sadface) it's not as broken as it was, but Narset, parter of veil remains, so it's still playable (for now, at least). Wincons. Your main tar...

Update 3/29/21: Took out Syr Konrad and Black Market for Vampiric Tutor and Feed the Swarm. Considered cutting Phyrexian Arena instead of Market. Syr Konrad is redundant to other pingers in the deck and the goal is to go infinite, not slowly chip opponents down; for that purpose his CMC is too high....
