Deck Description

This a community build, to let everyone get together and talk about which cards are a MUST in ALL or to MOST EDH decks.
I am going to throw in a couple cards for all colors, and lands as well, and provide a mini "WHY is this card good," description. and if you have any cards that you fit should be in this list, provide a comment of this card and "WHY this card is so good in EDH."
COLORS:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
RED:

--Bogardan Hellkite = Hellkite gets flashed into play, rips apart board positions, sometimes sending damage straight to the face, and then might even get a swing in!

-- Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker = Kiki-Jiki clones every turn and hastily too! He makes every creature we have literally twice as efficient.

-- Shattering Spree = can be used for mass artifact removel, I mean who doesnt like that!

-- Wildfire = has a nice symmetric effect, angering all of your opponents equally. It's good for getting rid of most creatures, and a few problematic lands as well.

-- Fork, Wild Ricochet and Reiterate, and Reverberate = Great copy effects if you want to get your opponents good!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
BLACK:

-- Demonic Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, Diabolic Tutor, and Beseech the Queen = Should be in every EDH deck that has black, for tutoring

--Cruel Tutor, Demonic Collusion, Grim Tutor = are also good tutors too!

-- Necropotence = great card draw engine!, but be careful, it could put a target on you, because everyone will be scared of all the cards you will be drawing!

-- Phyrexian Area = another great drawing engine!

-- Mutilate and Damnation = are certainly fantastic at destroying entire fields full of creatures.

-- Shriekmaw and Hero's Demise = great cheap removal

-- Liliana Vess and Sorin Markov = are both absolutely absurd sources of powerful reusable card advantage.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
GREEN:

--Sakura-Tribe Elder = Great cheap mana ramp creature!

-- Civic Wayfinder and Yavimaya Elder = alos great cheap mana ramp guys!

-- Eternal Witness = possibly my favorite green edh creature, or creature in general. brings back any card from your graveyard to your hand! thats FUCKING AWESOME!

-- Primal Command, Tooth and Nail, Worldly Tutor, & Sylvan Tutor = green tutor cards are always fun!

-- Life from the Loam = great recursion card!

-- Krosan Grip = greatest green artifact/enchantment removal
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
WHITE:


-- Yosei, the Morning Star = Sure go ahead and kill this guy, he benefits from dying :P

-- Akroma, Angel of Wrath = She just straight up OWNS!

-- Wrath of God, Day of Judgment, Rout, Austere Command, Armageddon = These are just some very great Board Sweeps

-- Swords to Plowshares, Condemn, Path to Exile = Fucking Sweet removal cards!
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
BLUE:

-- Counterspell, Force of Will, Spell Crumple, Flusterstorm = just a few of the great counter spells

-- Phyrexian Metamorph and Clone = Being able to do Whatever your opponent does always helps.

-- Ponder, Brainstorm = Helps your top deck, and card advantage!

in blue I like anything that provides extra turns, theres a ton(the newest one from AVR will be great in edh!). ANYTHING that clones a creature...ANYTHING, because it kills generals. clone, vesuvan doppelganger, phantasmal image, phyrexian metemorph...ect. i also like basalisk collar...its good in any deck. Lifelink and death touch AND affordable. its a winner. I dont have a lot of expertice in edh, just my blue deck( Kami of the Crescent Moon general)

would love any imput on any of my decks!
