Trying to build a deck around old, weird, hateful enchantments and artifacts.

Right now I've got a short list of cards I want to run, but could use some suggestions and ideas to fill out the deck.

the short list...
Aether Flash
Aether Sting
Burning Sands
Manabarbs
Goblin Bomb
Dingus Staff
Ankh of Mishra
Faces of the Past
Lifeline
Vicious Shadows
Aether Storm
Frozen Aether
Dream Tides
Lifetap
Insight
Chill
Aura Flux
Sulfuric Vortex
Mindlock Orb

So far looking like blue and red, but I'll gladly go 3, 4, or 5 color for good cards. Thanks in advance for ideas and suggestions

Most of the enchants are 'unplayable' in commander Chill is a dead card unless you have other people playing red and it also affects you and most of your enchants are red. Insight is another dead card, Aura flux affects you too and if your opponents are not playing heavy enchants is also a dead card.


Aether storm, the card could read 8 life instead of 4 and still be irrelevant unless you have Angel of Jubilation

But, all that said, I think the first thing we need to know is 'what do you want to do'? How do you plan to win the game?

good points. I'm not dead set on most of the cards I've listed.

I think I would run Douse over Chill
Insight is in no way a dead card. green is second only to blue in my playgroup, and drawing cards for free is too good to pass up

as Wincon goes, I'm thinking something goofy like Aether Flash + Dingus Staff + Hunted Phantasm or Hunted Troll and some flicker effects. Throw in Burning Sands and Dingus Egg and it looks fun and funky

Take Varchild's war-riders or Hunted Dragon over Hunted Troll so you can stay in two colors. Or go black with Tainted Aether.

I run a fair number of those red punish cards in a Gisela, Blade of Goldnight deck.

On their own, the 1-2 damage effects don't really add up, but when combined with damage double and damage reduction/prevention for yourself it can get interesting.

Throw in cards like Gisela, Dictate of the Twin Gods, Furnace of Rath, Curse of Bloodletting.

Now Psychogenic Probe is easily does 8 damage every time a player shuffles.


Another option is to play R/B and use the cards like Everlasting Torment and Erebos to prevent life gain to make the damage 'stick'.
