Cromat and Friends

I love 5 color decks. I have ran several different version of Scion over the years, and with the recent addition of gods, felt that it was a good time to add a new build to the arsenal. I wanted to make use of gods and planeswalers, along with some other bonkers cards I never get to use in my 5c dragon builds. I have been asked why Cromat and not one of the other 5c guys, and I choose him because he is such a strong creature, and unlike Child of Alara, he doesnt destroy my planeswalkers if he dies. When it comes to the walkers I tried to go with ones that either generated tokes or created really good value. I also run some redundancy in this just to be sure to draw the ability.

    5 Color Super Friends with gods! Awesome. Keep us updated on how the deck plays out!

    That really looks like fun!
    However, considering that you are playing a lot of stuff that works well with tokens (Parallel Lives, Collective Blessing, Dictate of Heliod etc.), how about a different Commander? Sliver Queen would be perfect here, I think. Man, I love that card! ;-)
    Even though Cromat provides you with a different angle of attack.

      Sliver Queen is one of my all-time favorites as well. In fact, I will be rolling out my revamped 5 color EDH deck Tuesday night. I focus on the Blue/Green colors, a pinch of control, and a handful of my favorite slivers. If it works, I’ll be posting a decklist soon!

          lol. You sure did.

          My Slivers failed once again… Just not finding the best mix with my favorite tribe. :/

    I gave a lot of thought to running Sliver Queen, but all of Cromat’s activated abilities give him so much more value over SQ.

      Also, style points on going “old school” with Cromat as opposed to Scion or Child of Alara.
