Quote from FunkyDragon »Quote from spentbullets »Superfriends is fun. Any particular reason you're not running Sol Ring?Colorless mana isn't nearly as good in five color, and while it can be powerful early game, it's a pretty dead draw late game. I tried to limit the number of mana rocks, and the three I kept all produce any color and have another advantage (indestructible, fixes all my lands, or multiplies mana production with proliferate). At the end of the day, Sol Ring just gives me two colorless, which only helps if I already have the colors I need and doesn't help if I have excess mana.
Quote from Trifas »I recently build a similar deck with Sliver Queen + proliferation as commander. Your topic really helped both getting me excited for the deck and get ideas for it. Thanks for all the effort!
I'm really excited for what Commander 2014 will bring for the deck. Teferi seems a "must add".
Ob Nixilis didn't feel very useful for the deck's purpose. A 5/5 flier is always nice, but it is hard to get good advantage from the other abilities.
Freyalise feels like nice option. Though the deck can't really abuse from the ultimate, spamming mana dorks and getting free artifact/enchantment removal can't be bad.
Quote from akroma44 »Thought I would share my list. I really do like it quite a bit. I don't lean on the proliferate as much, and I have much more spot removal. Here we go:
I have played this deck and become so attached to some of these cards, so I feel my mind is clouded by memories.
Cards that I really want to add, but can't find cuts for (hopefully you handsome scholars can help me out here!):
Pernicious Deed -> Maelstrom Pulse? Wargate -> Praetor's Grasp? Collective Restraint -> Gideon Jura? Jace, the Mind Sculptor -> ??? Garruk, Apex Predator -> ??? Omniscience -> Mirari's Wake? Villainous Wealth -> Savor the Moment?
Quote from Hipster Mike »If you can afford it all 5 color decks should run 10 fetches, 10 shocks, and 10 ABU duals. I run those, 2 man lands(Creeping Tar Pit and Celestial Colonnade), and a few utility lands.
Quote from akroma44 »If you want a different un-restricted Gift of Estates effect (which I don't entirely recommend), Shard Convergence is probably much better for you.
LandTax + Scroll Rack = Awesome.
Quote from akroma44 »Tempt with Discovery could be an extremely powerful political tool
Quote from Jaytron »Planeswalkers do generate a ton of table aggro. Can 5c walkers stand against a whole table decently?
Quote from lanust »Hey, thanks for posting this. I had a lot of these cards laying around (namely the ABU duals and expensive walkers) so I decided to give it a shot. I really like the power this provides! Some games that Sliver Queen is a beast, some games she never sees play. There are SO many options, this deck really requires intimate knowledge of every card you're running. Nothing like casting a Wargate for 7 only to realize Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker costs 8 and you end up getting Aura Shards anyway!
I would suggest Replenish given the huge amount of enchantments this deck runs, plus all the hate that Doubling Season and Mirari's Wake will draw. The other option might be Open the Vaults (which I used a Mindslaver on an opponent who was foolish enough to flash-tease it at me during someone else's turn)
What are your thoughts on utility cards like Yawgmoth's will and Genesis wave?
I personally run a Boros charm because WOW look out for planar cleansing
Again thanks for taking the effort on this, I look forward to evolving with you.
