Hello and welcome.

Just from the top of my head, a few artifact creatures worth running:
Triskelion
Solemn Simulacrum
Scarecrone
Steel Hellkite

You may want some protection against graveyard hosers, cards like Witchbane Orb although I'm not sure many choices are available in those colors.

Then maybe play some more board wipes? You have some targeted removal, but I believe you need to go for the bigger guns. Stuff like Do or Die.

Thanks for the reply lumination,
I do run Witchbane Orb just for that reason and I too don't know other cards that could protect the graveyard.

At least I'm not that grave depending well I mean the deck can go without it I believe..

I didn't know the artifacts you have suggested I will think about them thanks.

More board wipes can be a good idea any ideas beside Do or Die?

I never play 1v1 EDH, so I can't be much of an assistance. I know that these two threads have a lot of good information:
viewtopic.php?f=16&t=11230
viewtopic.php?f=16&t=15890

As for 1v1, I'd start something like this: http://www.starcitygames.com/article/30 ... lissa.html and add 50 cards.

You can take Glissa along a lot of different paths. Basically your deck turns into:
-Voltron with good equipment. Seems good in 1v1.
-Eggs with Salvaging Station, incremental card advantage. Seems weak in 1v1.
-Bombs (my personal theory: recur high value artifacts that your opponents need to answer or lose)
-Combo (might have some overlap with "bombs")
-Stax (might have some overlap with "bombs"), if you're anti-social

The best advice I can give you is to focus on one of these paths. In 1v1 I think I'd run some combo with Phyrexian Altar, and some good hate like Jester's Cap, Torpor Orb, Hex Parasite.

Shabbaman thank you very much that is quite a lot of good information sources.
I took a fast glimpse at all of them, will read them all asap :)
though I saw that many of them went in a little different way indeed with the deck
and I'm missing a lot of expensive cards.
Thank you :D

You can get very far with cheap cards! Codex Shredder is one of the best cards in my deck, for instance. Just figure out what a card does, and look for a replacement that does something similar.

Have you actually played it yet? If so, how did it work? Did anything seem to over/under perform?

As I'm waiting for some cards and want to play at my local gathering place not yet, as I can't play there with proxies.

How many cards is "some"? If it's not many, or there are reasonable alternatives like Shabbaman suggested above, then you could probably get some games in, even if it's not with the "final" version. Often this will be enough to give you a feel for the deck, and whether it works the way you want.

A common pitfall for new players is buying cards that aren't fun or good or socially acceptable. I don't want to tell you how to play EDH, but if you have budget concerns and are contemplating a specific card, then a lot of people here want to give advice. For free, and in copious quantity (read: spam). And then it's better to ask about a handful of cards then a whole decklist. However, one of the fun things is to figure it out yourself ;)

@Sid the Chicken: way too many.. and I don't have time for going to MFN as its finals time for me.. :cry:

@Shabbaman: I agree on that did it with my Modern deck but well now I have a collection :P
got some help with the deck on tapped and thats why I've ordered what I think will be the best,
I've no experience in EDH but from the experience I have from modern it feels right, but yeah can't wait to try it out.. :roll:

I highly recommend Forbidden Orchard. Glissa loves small creatures that die.

Thanks that is a good suggestion, will try to get one after receiving all of the cards.
I like you version of the deck, but you for sure had bigger budget for it :P
Based on your experience what do you think about what I have here?
