Some quick notes:

-Drawpower and Tutoring are essential in this deck, they allow me to get to my heavy hitters, removal, and essentially whatever fits the current situation.

-The idea here is that I always get something more out of each card I play, whether it is generating advantage by copying something that generates it, removing multiple threats at once, or taking my opponent's spells and using them myself. There is a little generic muscle to force damage through as well.

-I am mindful of in-game politics, since I've built a reputation for myself with this deck in multiplayer. This is why cards like Teferi are not present.

-I update this periodically if you hadn't noticed this, so check it out every so often. I appreciate all feedback!

-This is a multiplayer build. After I get the cards I want to finish it, I will design a sideboard of sorts to swap into single player games so I don't get destroyed in them so easily by Generals like Rafiq and Uril. The fixes I intend to Acquire (mostly) in short order are the following:


+ 2 Old Duals (Underground Sea and Volcanic Island), -1x Island, Mountain

Alternative generals to consider:
-Crosis, the Purger
-Gwendlyn Di Corci
-Nicol Bolas (lol)
-Thraximundar

Sedris is good but if you don't like him, consider/try these.

Hmm, actually hadn't heard of Gwendlyn. I've thought about Thraximundar some too, as his ability can be really good. Gwendlyn has that nice annoyance factor though, may have to track down a copy...

Gwen is good. I like Thraximundar simple because he's easier to find. >.>

Wow... Gwen's really, really good.

I'd try her, actually, and just run Sedris. The Unearth-to-all-your-dudes is nice, but he's mana-intense in a deck that doesn't necessarily want to deal with that.

That would seem to be the best course, I agree. Getting a copy of Gwen may be difficult though...

Any other feedback on the deck guys?

Planeswalkers seem good in Grand Melee, but in Chaos they seem a little less helpful (Though a Nicol Bolas would look really, really good here).

-Sending a PM.

This thread is getting bumped so I can get some feedback on my train of thought for this deck before I hit Trollandtoad. As I mention in the original post, after I finish the Multiplayer version, I want to design a Single Player sideboard. Sadly, the Single Player build will likely be a deck utilizing infinite loops since that is the "meta" I am stuck dealing with. My hope is to make enough of them efficient enough to convince my friends to stop using them. I will take ideas on that as well as the cards I am looking to swap in the multiplayer version. Here is what I know is going into the single player version:

-Vendilion Clique
-Hinder
-Tunnel Vision
-Curiosity
-Cruel Edict
-Sorin Markov

And things that might go in:
-Doom Blade
-Sudden Death
-Invoke Prejudice
-In the Eye of Chaos
-Strip Mine
-Wasteland
-Crucible of Worlds
-Boomerang

After the multiplayer deck is completed, these thoughts will move to the main post.

Strip Mine and wasteland are auto-includes. Doom Blade too, probably. Moar Terminates = awesome.

Vendilion Clique is fine, but I wouldn't use Tunnel Vision just because of Vendilion. It's far too infrequent.

Sorin should be in the multiplayer version, too. He's just awesome.

Sorin is really good, I agree. The problem is in Multiplayer, he singles one person out, and will likely be gone before he can get another. He just caters to single player games so much better, but if I come across one, I'll try it in Multiplayer, since a life swing of 20-30 life is ridiculously awesome.
