Adanto, the First Fort Discussion
6 months ago
Hey, looks good nice Extraplanar Lens :)
Consider more lands? 29 lands is low for a 3.6 avg. CMC. This low amount of lands also needs a low avg. CMC, not more than 2.0 which will be difficult to achieve unless you cut a large amount of high CMC cards. Consider 36 lands?
Consider more flying? Flying is evasion that you want to be able to consistently with Odric give all your creatures including Odric to do Commander damage.
- Healer's Hawk
- Segovian Angel
- Aerial Responder
- Skyhunter Skirmisher
- Aven Sunstriker
- Angel of Invention
- Aven Mindcensor
- Selfless Spirit
- Remorseful Cleric
Odric can give your creatures indestructible which is powerful from sources such as Gideon Blackblade or Bastion Protector . Precinct Captain , Hero of Bladehold and Brimaz, King of Oreskos are creatures who can be repeatable sources of tokens. Legion's Landing Flip and Adanto, the First Fort is a good land with token strategies. Hour of Revelation is a powerful board wipe for mono white in multiplayer Commander.
Cards to consider cutting:
- Angelic Chorus
- Sphere of Safety
- Mass Calcify
- Angel of Glory's Rise
- Darien, King of Kjeldor
- Skyspear Cavalry
- Baird, Steward of Argive
- Dictate of Heliod
- Norn's Annex
- Ajani's Welcome
- High Ground
- Solemn Offering
- Deploy to the Front
- Sword of the Animist
- Chitinous Cloak
- Spear of Heliod
- Riot Control
- War Report
- Hopeful Eidolon

I would start with the EDHREC pages for enchantress and for mono-white. The big concessions you have to make with mono-white in commander are lack of card draw and ramp. For that reason, the first cards I would put in the deck are Smothering Tithe , Knight of the White Orchid , Boreas Charger , Myriad Landscape , Oreskos Explorer , Solemn Simulacrum , Wayfarer's Bauble , Tithe , Gift of Estates , Land Tax , Endless Atlas , and Alms Collector . Depending on your build, you may then want Sram, Senior Edificer , Emeria, The Sky Ruin , Well of Lost Dreams , Sword of Fire and Ice , Skullclamp , Adanto, the First Fort , and Sword of the Animist .

Hey, very nice beginning shell for a new potential archetype in upcoming Standard :) Pridemate, Resplendent, Lyra, Sunmare, Diamond, Shield and Sunscourge this is a good creature/lifegain base to build around.
Consider Legion's Landing Flip? One drop that makes a token with lifelink. When it flips into Adanto, the First Fort can start making lifelink tokens. Victory's Herald is surprisingly in Standard at the moment for two more months. It's a rare in the Welcome 2017 deck which is Standard legal.
Good luck with your deck.

I like it. I wanted to make a black and blue version with cards like Doomfall as well.
Have you tried Glimmer of Genius instead of Hieroglyphic Illumination? I appreciate the ability to cycle and actually use both cards in my grixis deck for standard, but you could be doing a little more that just drawing. The scry on glimmer really is worth it. And that would build energy for your Dynavolt towers.
You may also consider 2 copies of Field of Ruin and 2 copies of Arch of Orazca as well. Field of ruin destroys non basic lands, including things like Azcanta, the Sunken Ruin and Primal Wellspring Flip or Adanto, the First Fort. Its a very very well rounded card for standard. The Arch of Orazca just helps regain card advantage if you hit a stalling point.

@Flyboarg, I go back and forth on Yahenni. I could go for more three drops, but Yahenni just seems to conditional. Yes it potentially gets huge, and if I was doing the boardwipe deck I drafted up on paper I would probably have it as a playset. But when it comes down to it, a 2/2 that only buffs itself for three doesn't fit a go-wide strat. I already have a couple so I plan on leaving them in while I build, but I don't know if they make the final cut.
@Apex_killjoy02, Vamps is a lifegain deck. Even without my tokens, I have 12 ways to gain life. Having a champion refill my hand turn six after I played everything really helps to close out the game. Duskborne Skymarcher fills a very interesting role in the deck. It is surprisingly common to go turn 1: Legion's Landing Flip, turn 2 any two of Duskborne Skymarcher, Vicious Conquistador, Skymarcher Aspirant, turn three swing to flip LL into Adanto, the First Fort and play a four drop or two two drops, or heck even activating Adanto. I want to make sure I have enough one drops to make that consistently possible. Plus, if I have out a Legion Lieutenant or Sanctum Seeker, it's getting at least two damage in the air in every turn. Sometimes this deck, or decks like it, get into board stalls pretty quick and that flying chip damage really adds up. (I also have a bit of a soft spot for any art done by Seb McKinnon ever since my first attempt at competitive magic was a Debt to the Deathless deck)

Hey cool deck! I like it a lot, but I still would change something about it:
The Raptor Hatchling doesnt do too much, in my opinion.
I would replace it with something that helps you more, like Blood Sun, to protect yourself from annoying lands like Adanto, the First Fort or Azcanta, the Sunken Ruin. It also draws you a card, which is critical, since you lack thereof.
You could also play Ghalta, Primal Hunger as a finisher, since your Polyraptors lack trample.
Cool deck, I will definitely play this once Rivals of Ixalan releases

Thank you for commenting! I'm fairly new here (and to the game in general) so any suggestions are appreciated.
I wasn't sure whether to include Legion's Landing instead of Doomed Traveler because Doomed Traveler looks the same as 2 creatures due to its effect, but Maybe I should swap it out since Adanto, the First Fort is really nice.
Blood Baron of Vizkopa is interesting, but I don't think this deck will go over 30 life very often.
Draw cards is something I might need, so those two are definitely good suggestions.
