TheBloopKing on Why Every Commander is Competitive

3 weeks ago

this is a very well made post. My personal suggestions

Every commander needs at least 8 mana rocks. Mana rocks serve a couple purposes depending on which ones you put in. Either they ramp you up mana like Hedron Archive or Mind Stone or they help you mana fix like Manalith. I run Signets simply because they do both. Also cards such as Ruby Medallion are relevant all around, including removing part of the first commander tax.

Decks should have at least a couple ways to add cards into your hands. You covered most of the blue ones such as Brainstorm

White Draw: Wall of Omens, Alms Collector, Mentor of the Meek, Aura Blast, Puresteel Paladin, and anything with "cycle on it"

Green Draw: Harmonize, Explore, Elvish Visionary, Soul's Majesty, Primordial Sage, Shamanic Revelation

Red Draw: Tormenting Voice, Wild Guess, Faithless Looting, Magmatic Insight, Cathartic Reunion, Wheel of Fate, Reforge the Soul, Expedite, and any of the guys that say "Discard a card, Draw a card"

Black Draw: Phyrexian Arena, Damnable Pact, Grim Haruspex, Sign in Blood, Ambition's Cost, Underworld Connections, Night's Whisper, Read the Bones, Harvester of Souls

Multi-coloured Draw: Abzan Charm, Shaman of the Great Hunt, Fathom Mage, Fevered Visions, Spiteful Visions, Painful Truths, Edric, Spymaster of Trest

Artifact Draw: Skullclamp, Staff of Nin, Mind's Eye, Mask of Memory, Howling Mine, Horn of Greed

I know I missed lots of draw but should give people an idea of what kind of draw you can access in the specific colours.

Hey there! Big fan of Ramos and I think you have a nice deck in the making! That being said, I’d advice to perhaps not run as many artifacts since they don’t add any counters to Ramos as the game goes on.

I’d also like to suggest a few cards that synergize with Ramos and remain within a nice budget. The first card is Abzan Charm since it acts as a Swiss Army knife, has 3 colors, and can instantly give Ramos 5 counters. The second card is Bring to Light, since it allows to you to search any creature, instant, or sorcery with at most 5 CMC depending on how many colors of mana you have at your disposal, and then just lets you cast that card for free, which potentially can also get Ramos to an immediate 5 counters. Third card is Release to the Wind since it allows to temporarily deal with your opponents’ problem cards, but also allows you to recycle cast effects, such as your Maelstrom Wanderer. Another card would be Rishkar's Expertise since you’ll likely draw many cards and then get to cast a spell with 5 or less CMC for free, which is insane. Last card is Overwhelming Stampede since you’ll double Ramos’ power and significantly boost any other creatures you control, grant them trample, and at least ensure that one player will be knocked out of the game.

If you read this far, I apologize for the giant paragraphs. Regardless of which direction you take your deck, good luck, have fun, and do you dude!

Hm, 2 massive boardwipes isn't enough to run this idea as I see it. Some cards i suggest running Abzan Charm, Boros Charm, Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Catastrophe... if you want to push that route.

This seems like a very interesting format. So the Entire deck and sideboard can't exceed 10 bucks? How do you handle cards that have a printing that is say .80c but a different printing that's .50c?

I would shift from Aura and go more heavy on Equipment so you could run Kemba, Kha Regent. More equipment also means you could run Vulshok Battlemaster. Equipment is also a safer bet because 1 Smother or the l i k e s, etc loses you all your aura's. Where as equipment has to be dealt with individualy with a few exceptions

Wow, very nice extensive explanations of all the cards in the deck, well done. It's however very hard to read because of the mass of text.

I suggest breaking up the sections with some pictures, wrapping the sections in spoiler tags or an accordion. Making each card name a mouseover producing a popup image of the card is helpful to compare the explanation of the card to the actual card. To do this you can wrap each card name in square brackets.

[[Abzan Charm]]

This makes the text of a card name blue making it stand out more when reading.


Docent of Perfection  Flip and Young Pyromancer seem out of place. I get that the strategy is casting charms and they create tokens, but I don't think you need them. Consider cutting them for some early game ramp that can help to make five colors: Fellwar Stone and Birds of Paradise?

Good luck with your deck.

Great deck! I'm also a big fan of abzan. Have you considered Abzan Charm. I would also recommend Curse of Predation just for the extra counters when you attack as well as some explore cards such as Deadeye Tracker.Cultivator of Blades is also just a great card in counter decks
