Okay, so I'm looking at making a cascade deck because I think it's a cool ability that leads to a lot of cool plays. The shell I'm starting with is actually the "Chaos Reigns" Planechase 2012 deck, and then adjusted accordingly.
Again, work in progress but it's what I've been trying to work with. I want to stay only 3 colors, but the more I look at it, the more I think I should keep the "all five colors" idea and not cut out on valuable cascading.
Something simple: all low cost so there really isn't anything that cannot be cascaded into, plus I love the idea of brainstorm ing, then puting a card or 2 I know I can get off of cascade back on top to be played for "free".
What are people's opinions? Should I go back to the 5-color deck for the extra cascade? Or are those spots readily fillable with other good cards I can use? I'd like any and all suggestions please!!
This is the first idea I had to build a commander deck. Using Horde of Notions as the Commander to keep bringing back Maelstrom Wanderer. :D Cascade twice for every 5 mana (1 of each) you have? Assuming a good sacrifice outlet of course. Or if you have 2 Wanderers you can just use the Legend rule to kill them off. XD
I'm both orderly and rational. I value control, information, and order. I love structure and hierarchy, and will actively use whatever power or knowledge I have to maintain it. At best, I am lawful and insightful; at worst, I am bureaucratic and tyrannical.
Note that both the Wanderer and the Elf are still on the stack (spells), and not on the battlefield, so you can't target them with the Flicker. Besides, blinking your Wanderer or any other creature with cascade wouldn't trigger cascade anyway. You have to cast the spell.
Pardon me if I'm completely wrong.
EDIT: Nevermind, someone already explained it when I wrote this message.
I had thought about EDH version of this, but my idea was to use progenitus because if I had maelstrom nexus out, I could cascade a 10 CMC spell, which would get me really cool stuff. I back away from that mostly because I have only a few people to play EDH with, but a lot of people to play casual with, plus I like having 3-4 of the "good" cascade cards and not 1 of each.
I guess I should go back to five-colored though. I do want more cascade, the manabase should actually be easier, and it opens me up to more fun shenanigans to cascade into.
OR now that I just thought of it, if I end up getting enough suggestions, I may just make it an EDH deck, then when I want to, play it regularly (not set the general aside) because this could pretty much always be a fun deck to play. I'll think it over.
