Lol at the Pariah, Ephara combo. (^ . ^)

I think the thing I really love above everything else about this deck is the mana curve. It's just gorgeous. Well done man.

I didn't even notice that. I love it when a curve works out nicely, you see too many decks getting really weird mana curves.

I echo both sentiments, though I would like to say I dislike the use of Talrand. I think the spell count is just on the edge between enough and too little. Either Talrand will give you a fine army or he will remain an anemic 2/2 for 4. I could be wrong about this, but I felt I should express my concern. Otherwise a lovely deck my friend.

Talrand works really well to trigger Ephara. There's 16 spells with several that shuffle back in or can trigger more than once plus an easily bouncable Snapcaster. He's not going to be as strong as he is in a dedicated Talrand deck but he provides pretty great card advantage and added benefits to the slow control plan.

That makes sense, I'm glad to hear Talrand is on the useful side of things.

Have recently updated the deck through KTK/C14. This deck remains one of the strongest decks I've built and is still incredibly fun without being TOO overpowered.

No change log but updated list to final iteration. I will be retiring this deck to build a Noyan Dar EDH. This is by far the strongest deck I've ever played. Despite winning a significant number of games with it, I have never been targeted for playing this deck or had anyone groan or roll their eyes when I pull it out. Ephara is an amazing general for sheer power and subtle advantage that does not draw attention to itself until it's too late to stop her.

If Noyan Dar doesn't turn out the way I'm hoping he does, I'll be coming back to Ephara in a heartbeat.
