Ancient Craving Discussion
2 days ago
As your deck list is pretty big so I thought I would give you some ideas for cards to cut.
Akroma, Angel of Fury: good, but does not have a big enough effect for commander
Anger: you're only running 2 mountains
Duergar Hedge-Mage good card but again, you are only running 4 mountains and 6 plains
Fallen Angel: you don't really have a use for a sac engine.
Jayemdae Tome: Just not great
Wrecking Ball no need for land destruction and there is better creature removal
Ghostly Prison:fine cared but has no real reason to be in this deck
Vow of Duty: just run a removal spell
Earthquake, Evincar's Justice, Pyrohemia, Sulfurous Blast: The mardu colors are the king of board wipes, run something better. ie. Damnation, Toxic Deluge, Wrath of God, Chain Reaction, Phyrexian Rebirth, and Decree of Pain to name a few
Congregate: don't need the life gain. Unless of course you play lots of token decks
Liliana of the Dark Realms: you have 3 swamps
you have a good amount of good creature but because your commander relies on your hand here are some more card draw ideas:Ambition's Cost, Ancient Craving, Bloodgift Demon, Damnable Pact, Dragon Mage, Erebos, God of the Dead, Harvester of Souls, Necrologia, Night's Whisper, Ob Nixilis Reignited, Painful Truths, Sign in Blood, Skeletal Scrying, Underworld Connections, Wretched Confluence, and Read the Bones.
More additional combat phase spell would also greatly benefit you. World at War, Aurelia, the Warleader, Fury of the Horde, Hellkite Charger, Relentless Assault, Savage Beating, Scourge of the Throne, Seize the Day, Waves of Aggression
in case you haven't already you may want to check out https://edhrec.com/commanders/kaalia-of-the-vast for more card ideas.
Looks like a great start, hope my comments were helpful

Overall, I like the deck. Blood Baron of Vizkopa is one card you can take out. It seems a bit situational and in EDH it's unlikely that it will have the buff for long, if at all. Fate Forgotten is just a worse Forsake the Worldly, so that's an easy replacement. One problem I see in most first-time EDH lists is that people think "Oh, it's EDH so I can just shovel high manacost cards in the deck like Iv'e never heard of a curve!" You, thankfully, did not make that mistake. One thing I would add is more card draw. You could try Land Tax and Scroll Rack, or Wheel of Fortune but that's not very budget. Ambition's Cost and Ancient Craving are budget alternatives that work, and so are EDH staples Phyrexian Arena and Underworld Connections. Magus of the Wheel and Reforge the Soul are budget options for the wheel. To fit these in, try taking out Kindred Boon. Six mana to make one thing indestructible is not so good.

Hey NV_1980.First of all, thank you for commenting on my deck. I really appreciate the feedback.Secondly, this looks like an AWESOME deck. When I started in commander my first deck was a Daxos the Returned deck and I loved it but unfortunately couldn't stick with it.I do have a few suggestion, however. Looking over your list I noticed that you didn't have any board wipes. I don't know what your playgroup is like but I know in mine it's essential to run at least a few. A great one I found for a deck like this is Extinguish All Hope. The amount of card draw in the deck also seems a bit scarce. In my experience you should be aiming for about 5-10 cards that can draw you cards, so maybe adding some cards like Ancient Craving, Greed or Necropotence may help. Also, if you are going heavy on the stax theme, you might like to consider painful quandry and maybe even Nevermore. I hope that this helps. :D

I saw your forum post and thought I would offer my two cents because Daxos was my first commander ever! So let's take a look under the hood shall we?
I do think there could be more ramp because Daxos is always hungry for mana. There could also be more in the way of card draw as well. Which when I give recommendations you will some cards that will help with both categories.
So we will begin on in my opinion what should be cut. The following cards I believe should be cut: Necromancer's Covenant, Grave Peril, Seal of Doom, Skull of Orm, Tragic Arrogance, Marshal's Anthem, Nighthowler, Celestial Archon, Banshee of the Dread Choir, Planar Cleansing, Three Dreams, and Herald of the Host. These cards which I have played with before are very slow and sub optimal for locking down the board with a pillowfort strategy.
Now it should be noted that when I recommend cards, I recommend a lot because I like to give people options of what's out there. With that being said there are a few cards that I believe fall under the category of *Must Haves*, those being the following: Dictate of Erebos, Anointed Procession, Mirage Mirror, Phyrexian Arena, Day of Judgment, Ghostly Prison, Kismet, and Plea for Guidance. They do beautifully in a Daxos deck. Now for the other cards I believe would be beneficial(This is where we get lengthy lol): Curse of Disturbance, Nevermore, Darksteel Ingot, Commander's Sphere, Oblivion Ring, Coldsteel Heart, Heartstone, Authority of the Consuls, Darksteel Mutation, Flickering Ward, Grim Guardian, Erebos, God of the Dead, Greed, Kambal, Consul of Allocation, Hour of Revelation, Underworld Connections, Read the Bones, Anguished Unmaking, Utter End, Aegis of the Gods, Swords to Plowshares, Return to Dust, Relic of Progenitus, Whip of Erebos, Ancient Craving, Solemnity, Grand Abolisher, Eidolon of Rhetoric.
Those are my thoughts as of this moment. If you have questions about why I chose certain cards we can talk about it! Lastly as I alwasys say with recommendations; these are my thoughts based on my experience. By no means are they the end all be all for your deck. The point of Magic is that it's your deck and your choices for what you want to do. So please do keep that in mind!

Slaughter - seems good with extort stuff
Esper Panorama - more fetch lands!
Consuming Vapors - kill spell and life gain
Well of Lost Dreams - card draw!
I hope you get to enjoy the fun of finding hidden gems in all the cards you have sitting around! Let me know if you want to debate any cards!!!
