The idea started with gagging the power level of what a Persistent Petitioners">Persistent Petitioners should be. My play group largely consists of mostly highly tuned deck with power level around 8, so I want to build a deck that is able to survive and thrive in my group. But clearly a mill strategy is not that strong in EDH, so I went with a group hug mill route and play the politics. Since the difference in power at the beginning is so big, most players won't pay much attention to you. Plus mass card drawn is the most successful feel good strategy for group hug and with enchantments discouraging other player from targeting you and card draw in some way is just another to mill your opponents and with adviser mill to carry the deck in the final stretch of the race everything starting to take shape and form the basis of this deck. After play testing I realize I don’t need that many Persistent Petitioners because the best way to use petitioners is to hold it in your hand until in the last stretch when you see a opening or disrupt a player’s win con that has to do with the library manipulation therefore no need for cards likeBloodbond March">Bloodbond March, Wood Sage">Wood Sage, Thrumming Stone">Thrumming Stoneetc. Instead I added counterspells for win con disruption and my own jinky combo likeMindcrank">Mindcrank : Duskmantle Guildmage">Duskmantle Guildmage andPhyrexian Unlife">Phyrexian Unlife: Solemnity">Solemnity to increase my win percentage if I get to the final 1v1. This deck is ablt to get second play fairly consistantly and from time to time that mill strategy does work if game is longer than 8 turns. Overall I'm happy with what I got here as a base. Please share your thoughts and ideas on how to build and improve. Mill has always been the unicorn strategy for EDH and having a card like Persistent Petitioners real invok the community's interests.Let's work together and try to build the perfect Persistent Petitioners deck.


Here is my take to get everyone started:

This is a group hug plus mill jinky deck. I have given many thought on what color combo and cammander to use for the Petitioners. The goal of this deck is to aim for second place and hopefully when we live long enough by the time it's the finally player the library of that player had been used low enough for us to steal a win from time to time.

so I have first decide the color identity of the deck should be 4 color (UWGB). Mainly UW for obvious reasons. To support this color as the General after a few revs I have seattle in the partner commanders of [card]Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix[/card] and Tymna the Weaver">Tymna the Weaver.

For the most of the game we are playing a don't look at me I am just spreading some love game so with Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix">Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix we can cash in on all those card draw.

Tymna the Weaver">Tymna the Weaver can help with even more card draw so they synergize very well. After after play testing it is very hard to keep both them on the table at the same time so our main goal is that have imediate value when anyone of them in played.

You may already be aware of this, but it wasn't mentioned in your posts that I saw... you can use Mirror Entity's ability to make all your creatures into Advisors (among other things), which means you can then tap all your dudes to use the Persistent Petitioner's second ability.
