Commander Deck Tech: Elsha of the Infinite
This article brings an Elsha of the Infinite deck, one of the most fun and popular commanders, with an unusual budget strategy.
Analyzing the Commander
Elsha + Top + Cost ReducerThe most consistent combo in the deck depends solely on the Commander, Sensei's Divining Top, and some artifact cost reducer like Etherium Sculptor or Starnheim Courser, plus it is necessary to have something that gives you the victory; for that, we have Laboratory Maniac, but it is only needed when the combo is finished.
Combo condition:Elsha on the battlefield, a cost reducer and Sensei's Divining Top in hand and three available mana, one blue and the rest colorless. 1. Cast Sensei's Divining Top for zero mana. 2. Tap it to draw a card and place it on top of your library. 3. Cast it from the top with Elsha's ability 4. Tap it to draw a card and place it on top of your library. Repeat steps 3 and 4 until there are no more cards in the library, then cast the Maniac and activate Top again, with that, you will win the game. Substitutions If Elsha is costing so much mana that you don't have the means to cast her, there is the possibility of using Mystic Forge to replace Elsha, but it does not guarantee flash for your spells.
TwinCasterThis combo is very useful because at the same time it can win you the game when you have both pieces, it can also be used for other things when necessary.
Combo Condition:Dualcaster Mage and Twinflame/Heat Shimmer in hand, be in main phase 1, and have mana to cast the cards. 1. Cast the Twinflame/Heat Shimmer, targeting any legal creature, holding priority. 2. Cast Dualcaster Mage, copying the spell you cast, creating a copy of the spell. 3. With the copy of the spell, target Dualcaster. 4. With the Dualcaster copy, target the spell. 5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 until you have creatures with enough haste to kill your opponents. With that, you will have enough damage to kill your opponents in the combat phase, winning the game.
Analyzing the Deck's Packages
Ramps and Reducers
more than Sharuum, but don't let her know that,and all this to ensure even more consistency in finding the most important piece of the combo, Sensei's Divining Top, which can be found by Dizzy Spell, but in addition to the Top, there are key interactions that can be found by it. We also have Fabricate, Reshape, Goblin Engineer, Inventors' Fair and Whir of Invention which, in addition to finding the Top, can find the cost reducers, Trinket Mage, which finds the Top and Sol Ring, Tribute Mage and Muddle the Mixture who finds Etherium Sculptor, the lowest cost reducer on the deck and Twinflame, if you already have Dualcaster Mage in hand. And last but not least of the tutors, we have Solve the Equation, which can search for some critical interactions, and Twinflame or Heat Shimmer, if needed.
