    [EDH] Gaddock Teeg

    My new fun deck, largely inspired by the fact that every time I get deep into an interactive multiplayer game, some douche bag assembles his infinite combo, and then it's just over. Always a huge let-down. Gaddock Teeg is meant to prevent anybody from ever doing anything broken... because screw them.

    Some cards are better than others, but hopefully you kinda see what I'm trying to do here. So what am I missing?... other than artifacts, which I don't really want because I really want to find and play Null Rod.

    I really like the idea of this deck! Brooding Saurian, Aurification, Hallowed burial and Oblation are a good anti-shenanigans cards. Burial and oblation are kind of auto includes in any EDH deck with access to white. Mirari's wake might be good too.

    The problem with a lot of those cards is that they can't be played if Gaddock Teeg is out.

    I realized that, but they just seem so good any anti synergy can be ignored. Well maybe brooding saurian might not be worth it unless a lot of people play blue in your group. Miraris wake might be unnecessary with your low curve, but hallowed burial is kinda of the "oh shit!" button for when teeg has failed. Oblation is just awesome general hate.

    Cards are marked Defense (help you live longer because you becoming public enemy number one as people want to cast spells and can't), Answer (gets rid of troublesome permanents and can help with defense), Engine(helps you get more card advantage), and of course Hate (completely nullifying the remaining strategies that opponents can use to try to get around Gaddock Teeg).
    The strongest engines are Yisan, the Wanderer Bard (when you get to 5 counters and fetch Seedborn Muse things spiral out of control quickly),followed up by Survival of the Fittest/Fauna Shaman (they tutor hate, and can combo with Loyal Retainers ), and followed up by Argothian Enchantress/Mesa Enchantress/Eidolon of Blossoms/Verduran Enchantress. The deck is fun and does cool things but at the cost of becoming an easy target due to stopping very powerful spells people like to cast.

    Something I thought about. Congrats on executing this lovely strategy, a GW control is not seen everyday.
    Speaking of engine: have you given any thought to Rancor-Auratog-Femeref Enchantress "combo"? I know that it takes three slots, and I knw that the cards alone do very little, I'm just asking.

    Nice deck, indeed.

No, I'm not a moron who has no sense of real synergy - I'm just a guy who can play bad cards well, and I know what I'm doing, and that's the end of it.

    I have not realized that engine you mentioned. Rancor was in my original build of this deck and very playable but I cut it for more defense instead of beats. Other cards with rancor's resilience effect include Brilliant Halo , Cessation, and Spirit Loop. I feel Auratog is sub par because most of the time you do not want to sacrifice your own enchantments, and there will probably be times you do not have an enchantment to sacrifice. But it DOES make Oblivion Ring and Act of Authority much better by being permanent removal by sacrificing it when it triggers. Femeref Enchantress is the worst enchantress. Femeref's only sac outlet is Auratog. Relieing on your opponent to blow up your enchantments is bad especially if your deck doesn't have synergy with Open the Vults or Replenish. Auratog The other enchantress cards are strictly better, Eidolon of Blossoms is the forth enchantress card. If you are looking for recurring draw effects the deck currently has Broken Fall + any of the 4 enchantress card which is much easier to assemble and has more synergy with other cards in the deck.

    I am trying real hard to fit an Aven Mind Censor. Cannot cut a land due to low land count.
