Added! To open dicussion, I posted an updated version of the Nin list I've been working on TappedOut, so any thoughts? I wanna incorporate Inkwell Leviathan and/or Mercurial Chemister.

Here!

I'd actually leave Aftershock in there. Otherwise you don't have many options for spot removal.

 

What I would cut is Steam Augury, the things you have listed minus Aftershock, and Shimmer Myr.

 

Then add in Vedalken Orrery, Leyline of Anticipation, Rings of Brighthearth, Basalt Monolith, Clever Impersonator, Blasphemous Act, Deadeye Navigator + any creature you can blink that untaps more than two lands, this slot usually being Palinchron, and Capsize.

 

You don't seem to be someone that is Anti-Stupid Combo, but if I'm wrong, take DENChron out of that list.

 

But with Rings of Brighthearth and Basalt Monolith you have infinite colorless mana, which I'm sure you can put to tons of good use.

 

Orrery and Leyline are better Shimmer Myrs that are harder to get rid of.

 

Clever Impersonator is Phyrexian Metamorph 2.0

 

Capsize is just too good. Any infinite mana combo that makes blue (DENChron, Rings/Monolith/Lattice) basically means 'bounce everybody's board'.

 

Blasphemous Act takes any token strategy and kills it with fire.

Definitely joining this.

 

I've been playing Magic for three years and at the very beginning, I didn't have any aspirations as to actually build a Commander deck. But then, in 2012, Planechase came around again, and this guy was introduced:

 

101.jpg

 

Needless to say, I fell in love. He has everything I like in Magic. Aggressive, huge body, able to win quickly by himself (don't even get me started on the combos these colors allow), and Cascade is probably my favorite mechanic ever, so much value to be had. It feels awesome when you reveal something along the lines of Frost Titan and Balefire Dragon in your cascades.

My money isn't infinite, so I dropped Modern (the most played constructed format in my city) in order to work on this deck. Today, two years after I started building it, I own six decks (that are due to some updates still):

 

Maelstrom Wanderer

Rhys the Redeemed

Oloro, Ageless Ascetic

Prossh, Skyraider of Kher

Aurelia, the Warleader

Nekusar, the Mindrazer

 

Now, Commander (multiplayer) is my favorite format, because it attends all my needs as a player: It's good for a collector like me, it's very fun, allows for very silly things to happen, and allows for a huge amount of combos.

I'll try Basalt/Rings out, because they combo with Nin to force two players to deck out, but not DEN/Chron, as both of those cards are ones that are generally frowned upon in my playgroup.

And Rod's been added!

We really should schedule some multiplayer games for us on Cockatrice. My city's EDH playgroup is almost dead so I play very little.

 

Weekends are usually when more people are available. What do you guys think?

I'd appreciate that, particularly because from February-June of next year I'm going to be working in Hong Kong and thus will be away from my normal playgroup. It would also give me an excuse to test lists that I'm working on (as long as people are willing to play to a similar level of competitiveness).

With that said, timezones for people? I'm currently on EDT (GMT -4) but once I move I'll be on HKT (GMT +8}.

Added, Boing(?)!

Also, made some quick updates to Nin. I only realized now that Rings of Brighthearth are ~$10, which is a mite out of my budget for a card that's primarily going to be a combo piece. Did make the following changes, though:

- Argivian Restoration, Empyrial Plate, Faithless Looting
+ Clever Impersonator, Hellkite Tyrant, Swiftfoot Boots

Additions to consider still: Blasphemous Act, Inkwell Leviathan, Mercurial Chemister, Vedalken Orrery

Uhh, that works too. I'm not too familiar with how people's names change nowadays.

Anyways, how does Feldon play? I know a friend in my playgroup was interested in using him.

My build is pretty meh-ish since I didn't spend too much time on it, but it basically loots and wheels through your deck, finding pieces and uses Feldon as a value engine to get something from all the discarded stuff.

Added! How does Intet play, btw? Tried to make a fun thematic list for a long time but eventually just gave up.

Also, I'm thinking that if people want more discussion, maybe post up some decklists? It'd be nice to see where people think they could use some improvement. (:

Sure. Where'd you like us to start, and what needs to be tinkered with there?

I've worked quite a lot on the Wanderer deck, so it's pretty much perfect in the way I wanted it to be. But all the other decks are up for improvement. Maybe we can start with my Prossh deck, which is my favorite deck to play with bar Wanderer.

 

Quick description of the deck: The main win condition is Xenagos + Prossh, which is an OTK (have Xenagos in play, cast Prossh, get 6 tokens, sacrifice all of them so Prossh becomes 11/5, go to battle and have Xenagos make Prossh 22/16 with haste). I'm not running a lot of tutors in the deck (because I only own one copy of each, i.e. Worldly Tutor is in Wanderer, Demonic Tutor is in Nekusar), so the combo isn't always the only way to win. I also run Purphoros which is backbreaking in certain conditions and cards like Blood Artist, that care about creatures dying. Above-average amount of ramp and the staple spells on Jund colors and we have the deck.
