Arcum Dagsson Discussion
59 minutes ago
Kaizer_Marano yes, sometimes without even using any planeswalkers! Only a couple of weeks ago I was introducing a newer player to EDH and let him use a variety of my decks while I piloted others to show how they all work differently and how your commander and colour choices can influence how a deck behaves. Anyway, I got out an early Arcum Dagsson and while I carefully didn't pick out any infinite combo pieces he pretty much won the game for me. In larger multiplayer versus more experienced opponents I actually try to avoid singular infinite parts - eg. Cranial Plating rings fewer alarm bells than Nim Deathmantle so people let it resolve to their detriment. There are just enough reasonably sized creatures plus ways to copy them to get in a beatdown; just enough ways to produce tokens for swarming tactics; just enough removal to deal with a few big problems etc. In fact, by choosing a variety cards I like rather than focusing on Breya-centric combo win with more tutors I believe I have lost some tempo and perhaps lowered my outright win percentage but created a more well-rounded deck.

Unfortunately $100 doesn't go far when talking about a completely tuned deck to be able to compete with decks winning turn 5-6. I'd probably go with something cheap like Xenagos, God of Revels that can eliminate one person by turn 5-6 to feel like you are participating and effecting the board. I would then focus on building something with really strong cards that are not super expensive but would still go over your budget at the moment.
$104 (both deck prices are what you can buy them for right now from TCGPlayer since tapped out pricing is temperamental.) Xenagos, God of Revels deck that you could make some cuts or just use big dumb beaters you already own to cut the price under $100.

Soldevi Machinist, Vedalken Engineer and Renowned Weaponsmith are actually powerful in this deck as well Arcum Dagsson is way too powerful. Sunstone is kinda silly but it will save you a few games sometimes.

You want BROKEN?!?!?! Here are a few broken creatures. Narset, Enlightened Master, Arcum Dagsson, Athreos, God of Passage with shadowborn apostles, Diaochan, Artful Beauty, Atraxa, Praetors' Voice infect, Karametra, God of Harvests Enchantress goes broken with pillow forting and I can give you a goo combo for it if interested, Fumiko the Low Blood + goblins, and last but not least Sliver Overlord. And this is in my opinion but just remember. You can have a $1,000 deck but still lose to a $200-300 deck.

+1 for the deck...
But this deck doesn't really show how to rube-goldberg Machine it all up.
Tap Dagsson to sacrifice the creature, fetching Citanul Flute, tap the flute, fetch any of the at least 2 other 0 drop artifact creatures (Phyrexian Walker, Ornithopter, Shield Sphere, or Memnite) in the deck to hand, cast it, untapping dagsson and the flute. Fetch Gilded Lotus, tap the lotus for , then the flute to fetch the last 0 drop in your deck.
Cast the 0 drop, untapping dagsson, the flute, and the lotus, get 6x with the flute, sacrifice the 0 drop to fetch Thran Dynamo, tap it for 6x and . tap the flute, paying to fetch Myr Moonvessel, cast it, untapping your rocks and the flute and dagsson, tap the flute and pay to fetch Scrap Trawler, leaving 9x and left floating, cast it, untapping your rocks, and the flute, leaving up 10x and .
Pay the mana to fetch and cast every single creature in your deck in this method, by tapping and untapping the rocks, then loop sacrificing Myr Retriever bringing back two 0-drops with Scrap Trawler, casting them, and sacrificing Junk Diver to bring back a 0 drop and Myr Retriever, then casting them and sacrificing Myr Retriever bringing back Junk Diver and a 0 drop, you may repeat this infinitely until you get infinite mana and every non-creature artifact in your deck except for Grafdigger's Cage. You may "fail to find" an artifact so you can get more sacrifices than non-creature artifacts.
With infinite mana, dump it into Staff of Domination, drawing all of your deck. Use Capsize to bounce all of your opponent's permanents. Hold your countermagic, and Capsize or any other number of cards you want, and Scroll Rack the rest onto the top of your library.
Because of Aetherflux Reservoir and your infinite casts, you have infinite life, you also have infinite mana, and infinite bounces, etc. You can pass the turn, and repeatedly Capsize your opponent's lands, or counter any real spells they cast, all while they slowly mill out, and whenever you draw the last card of your deck, Scroll Rack it all back in. If you are ever about to lose, Aetherflux Reservoir them to death, or just let them mill out.
Now that is a rube-goldberg machine!

Going from a pure power standpoint the top two Mono-blue commanders are Teferi, Temporal Archmage and Arcum Dagsson. If you are judging along a metric besides pure power please let us know so that suggestions can be tailored to what you are looking for.

My main concern of the deck is the "competitive" tag. That tag would imply this deck is a fully optimized, competitive list, able to see play against the best decks of the format, and still have a decent winrate.
This list, from what I see, is not able to accomplish this.
I honestly do not know what this deck is trying to do, as there was not a primer for it, nor an explanation, but I will look and see, If I am wrong in my analysis, please correct me, and I will apologize promptly if I am mistaken entirely.
It looks like a Shadowborn Apostle deck, that is using the apostles to cheat out few choice demons, of which there are 7 total, out of them Demon of Death's Gate and Ravenous Demon Flip are simply large beatsticks, and so are basically useless for a cEDH deck, Indulgent Tormentor is the same unless you team with an opponent, and Rune-Scarred Demon is a Demonic Tutor on a stick. Ob Nixilis, Unshackled is a big hate-on search, but the 10 life and sacrifice a creature should barely hurt a player unless they are paradox combo with Captain Sisay or Arcum Dagsson, and so they use a Swords to Plowshares on it or Pongify and then combo off. Harvester of Souls is decent card draw, and Razaketh, the Foulblooded is actual tutoring.
What can you tutor for or draw to win? Not much I am afraid you only have 6 removal spells, and they aren't very good for these colors, no Dismember or anything else really.
Without Mana Crypt, Mox Diamond, Mana Vault, Fellwar Stone, Mind Stone, Lotus Petal, or Chrome Mox type effects, you can't legitimately expect to pull a win with this deck at a competitve table, and your card draw is just horrendous.
At least I would suggest you do the courtesy of running your good tutors, Demonic Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, Imperial Seal and Grim Tutor (some decks don't need Grim Tutor), along with Necropotence for draw and Ad Nauseam + Angel's Grace for the draw your deck.
May I ask about you landbase?
Commonly, for a competitive deck, the usually 2-color landbase looks like:
City of Brass, Mana Confluence, Caves of Koilos, Fetid Heath, Concealed Courtyard, Command Tower, Forbidden Orchard, Exotic Orchard, Reflecting Pool, Gemstone Caverns, and Tarnished Citadel (the 11 unfetchable duals in your colors)
This 31 card landbase is fully tuned and optimized for a competitive deck, why does yours not run the rest of the good fetches, and all of the good duals?
To be entirely honest, I don't think this is a bad deck, and don't want to offend you or your deck-building skills, but I would hope you drop the "competitive" tag or change the deck a lot, it is mis-leading as it is.
If you want any deck-building advice on how to make this deck competitive, I suggest heading on over to Why Every Commander is Competitive and learning from that resource I set up for new players to cEDH.
