Splice World [EDH]


The Tentacled One
This has to be my most extreme oddball concoction for the West Coast Commander League. To put it simply, we had the opportunity to gain a repeating bonus point for each turn in which we spliced a spell. So my plan was to build a deck that could not kill my opponents. No win condition at all. Infinite combo with some form of protection and then I'd just splice Everdream onto something every single turn for the rest of the game.

Because of the stipulation that presenting an infinite combo kill can invoke "hasty exterminatus" and cause me to exit the game, I had to ensure that my deck couldn't kill my opponents. Not even with commander damage. It turns out that blue/black/green, my favorite color combination, has a 0/0 legendary creature.

Ultimately, my use of Mindslaver and/or overloaded Cyclonic Rift with infinite recursion and countermagic backup was considered a "lockdown" and I was booted from the game anyway by the judge. But hey, it was fun anyway. Except for the last game, where I massively manadrowned and did nothing all game.
