Approach of the Second Sun Discussion

ZendikariWol on Atraxa +1/+1 counters for critters

1 week ago

Okay so the main problem here seems to be focus. Yeah your curve is bad, but usaDiabetic said enough about that. Imma talk about cards. Also I'm linking my deck at the bottom of this comment because it's very similar. Borrow what you will.

There are a lot of cards in this brew that I looked at and just thought 'what are you doing here'. Whether they didn't fit the theme or were just outright bad, these are some cuts I might suggest for taking USA's and my advice into account.

Crystalline Crawler. It feels kind of useless. Like, what is it there to do? It's either a subpar mana rock or a weak attacker/blocker.

Guardian of the Gateless doesn't interact with +1/+1 counters, is 5 mana, and really isn't great in general. Either you block a bunch of stuff and it dies or you just use it as 2 blockers, and there are much better things to do with 5 mana.

Majestic Myriarch, while powerful, is not a card for this deck. Once again there is the lack of interaction with counters and also it's just a big dumb creature with a lot of keywords. At 5 mana? Not worth it.

Noosegraf Mob will die far too quickly for any counters to be placed on him. In commander I'm casting 5 spells every turn by the time you're casting this guy.

Reflector Mage, while a good card in general, has no place in this deck. Once again, why is it here?

The same is true for Reveillark.

And for Vizier of the Menagerie.

And for Nissa, Steward of Elements.

And for Haunted Cloak, Inspiring Statuary, Panharmonicon, Paradox Engine, Approach of the Second Sun, Migratory Route, Nissa's Pilgrimage, Spitting Image, As Foretold, and Ancient Excavation. All of these are good cards, some really good, but their are other decks that could utilize them better. They're just goodstuff in this deck, where elsewhere they could really be something!

Incremental Growth nay not be worth it for 5 mana. There are much better plays for that cost.

If you want board wipes for creatures I would suggest Wrath of God and/or Divine Reckoning rather than Sublime Exhalation?

And once again, after you put in some ramp, I have a ton of suggestions for replacing suboptimal cards here. If you'd like me to go into more detail on specific all-stars I will. If I came off as really harsh I'm sorry, this actually looks like one of the first commander decks I ever built myself so I felt like I had to comment, for nostalia's sake. Thanks for bearing with me through this behemoth of a comment, and happy brewing.

Guys... We're Gonna Need More Dice

  • 1 Approach of the Second Sun... expensive but you can draw it really quick and asnod altar 3 creatures for + 1 white for the win.

Library of Leng could also be good in this deck... so you don't have to discard some sorcery/instant/etc.

Cloudius on Wincons for Quirky Creatureless Yennett ...

2 weeks ago

So I decided to take the path less travelled and made a creatureless Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign Spellslinger deck.

We Love Freebies! *Primer*

Commander / EDH Cloudius


The deck is extremely fun to pilot and thus far, the main wincons are via Proteus Staff or Approach of the Second Sun.

Hoping to tap on the quirky and zany minds of the brilliant deck brewers out there to suggest more alternate wincons for the deck, while adhering to the creatureless theme.

All suggestions and comments are welcomed, however wacky, bizarre and unorthodox the are!

P.S. While you're viewing the deck, let me know whether the layout and color schemes are reader friendly. I've been dolling up the page and would some feedback on that too!

Tutor for Approach of the Second Sun or other lifegain win cons with: Planar Portal, Jester's Mask, Ring of Three Wishes, or Tamiyo's Journal? I know they're all bad, but they are tutors...

Depala plays well with Approach of the Second Sun since she can dig up cards so fast after you've cast it once.

_Delta_ on GRN - Grixis Control

Well Dream Eater and Doom Whisperer are looking like your best options besides maybe Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip.

I have to find new win cons for my 2 standard decks also. My control loses of course Approach of the Second Sun, and then my other deck needs a complete overhaul as all of the counter related stuff like Winding Constrictor, Verdurous Gearhulk etc.

While mine hasn’t been around as long as yours, I have been playing a deck in various forms since Kaladesh now also lol. Was around delirium, then energy/counters, now it’s becoming either aristocrats with Vraska, Golgari Queen and the like or simply a midrange good stuff deck with maybe cards like Doom Whisperer, or others like Ghalta, Primal Hunger, Steel Leaf Champion etc.
