Rhys the Redeemed EDH Deck
This Rhys the Reedemed EDH deck is well balanced with mana acceleration, draw, protection from combat damage, and token power. The strategy of this deck is to first mana ramp quickly using cards like Rampant Growth and Kodama’s Reach. Then I play token creatures using Planeswalkers, Sorcery spells and Enchantments like Elspeth, Knight-Errant and Luminarch Ascension. I then double my tokens using Rhys the Redeemed and power the tokens up using lands like Gavony Township and enchantments like Beastmaster Ascension.
I built this deck for multiplayer use with my friends but it does do very well playing 1v1 as well.
As you can see from the build there is not a large focus on creatures. My friends play a lot of creature destruction in their decks so I try to play spells that can consistently create tokens. I also have board wipe protection with cards like Spawning Pit and Worldspine Wurm.
The reason I like this deck so much is because it is a powerhouse. You can double your creatures every turn with Seedborn Muse. With Doubling Season, Parallel Lives, and Rings of Brighthearth you can more than Quadruple your token using Rhys the Redeemed’s ability. Now if you are Quadrupling all of these tokens with Cathars’ Crusade on the board you can make several big big creatures in one or two turns. Yes, this deck can sometimes be overkill but that is what makes it fun!
Someone asked earlier about why my deck list does not contain Dual Lands, Fetch Lands, Strip Mine, or Wasteland. To clarify I do not have these cards in my deck as they can easily add up to over $100+. My mana base has also been sufficient enough where it is not worth it for me to put these lands in my deck especially when I mostly play EDH casually.
