Angus Mackenzie Discussion

I’m gonna offer some advice from experience. I run 5 color superfriends as well and the the cards I’m gonna suggest are are simply the best way to protect your walkers that I have found. They fog effects from:
- Knight-Captain of Eos combined with Elspeth, Sun's Champion
- Spike Weaver and
- Spore Flower with your Atraxa
- Dawnstrider is good as well if you’re able to untap her every turn and have enough card draw to pay for the ability.
- Circle of Despair ain’t really a full fog effect but it is if you have enough tokens to sac per turn.
- Angus Mackenzie not even gonna click this as a suggestion because he is out of most ppls price range but he and Seedborn Muse together is damn good as well.
All or most of these in the deck will vastly increase your win rate.

I run a similar style with my Derevi deck, though I use primarily enchantments instead of creatures for one simple reason - Creatures are usually easier to remove. But here's some cards that I'd recommend using if you're going for as much resource denial as possible:
Creatures: Seedborn Muse , Angus Mackenzie , Lavinia, Azorius Renegade , Sigarda, Host of Herons , Hokori, Dust Drinker , Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker , False Prophet , Baird, Steward of Argive , Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer , Melira, Sylvok Outcast I'd only recommend using Melira if you plan on having Phyrexian Unlife in the deck.
Enchantments: Pendrell Mists , Frozen AEther , Blind Obedience , Privileged Position , Greater Auramancy , Back to Basics , Land Equilibrium , Propaganda , War Tax , Collective Restraint , Teferi's Moat , Moat , Humility , Overwhelming Splendor , Leyline of Anticipation , Solemnity , Invoke Prejudice , Mana Reflection , Mechanized Production , Overburden , Rising Waters , Rule of Law , Wilderness Reclamation

While I've read all of your articles, I cannot recall if you've addressed this particular subject (whether directly or indirectly) in magic. Can you talk about the evolution of power in creatures? For example, Legends has creatures like Adun Oakenshield , Angus Mackenzie , and Axelrod Gunnarson (not to exclude the others). While Throne of Elderaine (a standard set) is producing a card called Kenrith, the Returned King which is a creature with much more utility than most. Deathrite Shaman is even (jokingly) considered to be a "planeswalker" for all intents and purposes because of the utility. While not creatures per se, Theros gave us the legendary artifacts that have multiple purposes such as Bow of Nylea . There are multiple patterns of cards that Wizards is pushing that seem to be more utility based than just brute power. If this makes sense, is it worth considering an article?

Yeah, I was thinking as much as anything that a Feather-style combat trick deck with Marisi would be fun. I would really get a kick out of declaring combat, then being left alone because everyone is too loaded up with defenders, then casting some dumb combat trick like Emerge Unscathed & never being countered. Feather would be great in that 99. My buddy busted out his Ghired precon and early-played Marisi in it this wknd. Almost blew an Angus Mackenzie deck apart goading it to no end :)

The link to your deck is broken, thus I couldn't see it, let me know if you fix it.
Anyways, since Angus Mackenzie is one of the most expensive commander legal legendary creatures around, you'd probably do better with a Kruphix, God of Horizons turbo fog build: fog on opponent's turns, attack with fatties on yours, that's the basic idea. Save a lot of money for one card and straight up build a complete competitive deck.
On the other hand, as suggested previously, if you like defenders, you might want to build Arcades, the Strategist with a lot of walls instead.

Ashnod's Altar is in because of the stupid Angus Mackenzie player who regularly shows up at my normal store and other pillowfort and life gain players. Most of the rest of those managed to make it in not in the exact way you suggest but thanks.
