Commander Mondays (11/11/2013): Edric, Spymaster of Trest

\NOTE: Yes, it's late. I know. Still trying to play catch up. I won't be doing 4 original EDH decks in one month again, because it's obvious I can't meet that sort of time table.

Hm... Blue, Green, and you get to draw cards as long as a creature deals damage to one of your opponents, you get to draw a card. So, this benefits your opponents in multiplayer matches too because they'll not want to attack you based on them getting to draw cards. Let's play on this a bit, because we could just sit back and have some fun with this...

This deck is really creature heavy, specifically when it comes to elves. Because Edric is an Elf, I figured we could do some green elf tribal. There is a lot more green than blue in this deck, so I reflected that in the land, and I added in both Evolving Wilds, Terramorphic Expanse, and even Misty Rainforest in order to make sure that blue source is reached.

As far as elf tribal goes, we have several creating green mana, and elves that affect other elves. Due to the green mana sources, I added in Omnath, Locus of mana just so that the mana has something to do and isn't wasted having the ability to make about 20 green mana and having no purpose for it.

The blue in this deck is mainly for unblockable creatures allowing you to deal combat damage to opponents which will get the card draw from Edric's ability.

Invisible Stalker  Elusive Krasis  Neurok Invisimancer
