Enral on Xenaroidâ„¢: FDA Approved

imSandstorm: It depends on the situation. If I have one fatty I know I could take someone out like Blightsteel Colossus in hand I'll use TnN to cheat it out. If I have nothing going on I will entwine it for the following combinations depending on the situation:

There's more combination that I've used but those above are the common ones. As far as Rhythm of the Wild goes, I'm not convinced that it is good in this deck because Xenagos already provides haste and is hard to remove. Also this deck doesn't really care if creatures get countered since I run a redundant amount of fatties.

TypicalTimmy on Favorite Voltron Commander and why?

Just looking to have a fun discussion :)

I love Atarka, World Render for her massive 12 Commander Damage in the air. Stacking her up is just an incredible force to reckon with. But I feel Gruul has it's limitations in viable protection.

Green is good for things like a once-off Fog , sure. Green also ramps and can occasionally draw . Red is good for, in this case, draw as well. Both can produce mana too, though red is often limited to things such as Geosurge and Seething Song . But protection is rather limited and you are forced to stack up equipment to give her Indestructible or Hexproof, though an occasional green Enchantment or something like Archetype of Endurance can do the trick.

I find you need to balance Gruul Voltron a bit more. You have ways to make her uncounterable - Prowling Serpopard and Spellbreaker Behemoth to name a quick two.

Keeping her alive is difficult at first. Commander Tax makes it harder and harder. So politics play heavily into this design, because you want to get her out ASAP and keep her equipped. Not an easy task, mind you.

But at the end of the day, I find Atarka Voltron to be unexpected and fun.

So, what Voltron Commanders do you enjoy and why? :)

Cards (especially creatures) that give you extra lands will synergize well with your commander. Therefore, my first suggestions are Solemn Simulacrum , Sakura-Tribe Elder , Wood Elves , and Burnished Hart . Another suggestion in the same vein would be cards that let you multiple lands a turn, such as Azusa, Lost but Seeking , Mina and Denn, Wildborn , Wayward Swordtooth , and Oracle of Mul Daya . Additionally, for a deck like this, creatures that emulate the effects of noncreature spells are going to be very useful. Brutalizer Exarch , Reclamation Sage , Bane of Progress , Acidic Slime , and Manglehorn come to mind. Finally, utility creatures such as Archetype of Endurance , Anger , Soul of New Phyrexia , Garruk's Packleader , and Woodland Bellower . Cards that draw you extra cards are good, as are cards with the Landfall ability.

A good website to use for suggestions is EDHrec. They have some excellent suggestions based on your colors, commander, and theme.

Took out Nissa, Worldwaker and put in Archetype of Endurance . I think giving my creatures hexproof is a huge key to me winning games, hence why I added them.

Love this dude--haven't played against anyone with this deck yet. This looks pretty solid.

Off the top of my head I think you could add some commander protection (not sure if he gets targeted very much), but on the chance that he does, Swiftfoot Boots , Whispersilk Cloak , Archetype of Endurance , Asceticism , and something really interesting in Darksteel Garrison since your dude comes out as a land (I would assume it would pop off as soon as he becomes a creature, but still.)

Maybe an Overrun or Triumph of the Hordes for the killshot? And he's not a sea creature but Kamahl, Fist of Krosa could be dope to add in for more of that land sub-theme you've got going on!

Defense of the Heart could be a game-changer for you as well.

Hope some of that helps! +1
