Auriok Salvagers Discussion
1 week ago
Ok everyone, I was thinkering about the Daxos the Returnedlist today and here is what I have come up with:
I think we are all stuck about the win condition needing to come from enchantments but... I mean we are not obligated to stick to enchantments!!! Like it has been mentionned before, Bomberman combo would be something pretty spicy IMO with this commander, since it can be an infinite mana sink at the very least (we only need one counter on him). I would stick to that idea, so the core of the deck would be having at least 1 experience counter, then infinite mana. No matter if the commander is still in play or no. We start by generating infinite white with Auriok Salvagers + Lion's Eye Diamond, then we go for infinite black, then infinite tokens. Simple. I know we have to wait an entire turn then to swing and win, but that would be a start.
To gather exp counters, I would add in the deck a suite of enchantments that would help fighting against top tier strategies. I am still looking to list them all, but for sure things like Rule of Law against storm, Leyline of the Void against any graveyard based strategy/Protean Hulk, Leyline of Sanctity against anything that can target you (Aetherflux Reservoir/Walking Ballista)... Many enchantments out there will help us hate on top tier decks, so we could play like a suite of stax enchantments, with all the support from white and black to tutor and draw and have good enchantments, I think it could be fairly potent.
I will work on a decklist form now and post it here again once I will be done to get comments/feedback, and compare with the other lists you guyz are working on.

I would say that the equipment effects are not really important; the idea simply is to keep on drawing. I would, however, include every euqipment that can allow me to draw cards, because it would let us try to restart the chain in case it stops. The only ones here I can't see in the list are Diviner's Wandand Avarice Amulet. I would exclude the Amulet as it is too slow and costs 4, but I would consider adding in the Wand. It would be an infinite mana outlet if we manage to get the Bomberman combo (Auriok Salvagers + Lion's Eye Diamond) online, so it would be a win condition. Sitting at a CMC of 3, it would be the top of the curve, with other win conditions already at 3 (i.e. Monastery Mentor).
As for the swords, I would play only the ones that can help going even further in the combo turn (Sword of Feast and Famine) or the ones that can draw you cards (Sword of Fire and Ice). I would leave the others out of the deck since at a CMC of 3, it starts to be pricy for an equipment that will only be ised for protection or recursion. I would drop Sword of Light and Shadow, since I don't even know what you want to recur with it... As I said above I would replace it with Diviner's Wand, unless you have some pretty good explanations to convince me to keep it in?

There are deck-specific combos and general combos.
Deck specific combos will usually have one card that combos with the commander (Sliver Queen + Mana Echoes), or two cards where one can be multiple cards in the deck (Sac Outlet = Altar of Dementia, Ashnod's Altar, Phyrexian Altar, Blasting Station, Viscera Seer, etc...)
General combos are combos that make infinite something in any deck. Since they don't have anything to do with their commanders you'll generally see the same ones in most decks. They are usually two card combos, or three card combos where one card can be multiple cards in the deck (Sac Outlet or Mana Rock usually).
The most common general combos are:
Paradox Engine + Mana Rocks/Dorks + Something that taps to draw or returns to hand = Infinite Mana, Storm, and/or Draw.
Storm + Aetherflux Reservoir = Win.
Infinite Mana + Walking Ballista = Infinite Damage.
Necrotic Ooze + Creature combos in graveyard. (Usually Devoted Druid + Quillspike + Walking Ballista for Infinite Mana and Damage. This also works on its own. Another option is Walking Ballista + Phyrexian Delver for Infinite Damage.)
That's all I can think of at the moment.
Often good commanders that run general combos are an outlet for Infinite Mana, or are able to easily search out or recur pieces of the combo.

@UnleashedHavok, If you check my infinite combos section Auriok Salvagers is actually part of an infinite damage combo. Restoration Specialist wouldn't fit this combo since its a one-time effect. I have considered the specialist before, and despite its effect being rare for the colors its in I prefer Argivian Find over it just for being cheaper mana-wise and usually it is all I need to get any combo restarted. Thank you for the suggestion though.
@Imraz, Thank you for the compliment. I really appreciate it!

I like this deck, much different from mine Alesha, Who is Unfinished, but I like it a lot. I struggle as well at times with other players that like to play with themselves instead of the table.

I've never seen anyone play Canadian Highlander, but it looks like fun. This is a very similar build to my General Tazri Commander. I haven't uploaded the deck to Tappedout quiet yet so it's pointless to look for at the moment. I'd add Foresight as it can pull Misthollow Griffin and Eternal Scourge in the same way that Manipulate Fate can. I'd also add in Riftsweeper or Pull from Eternity as they can recover your Food Chain if it gets removed. You're also running the perfect set of colors to run the Lion's Eye Diamond combo. 1st cast Entomb putting Auriok Salvagers + Angel of Glory's Rise + Trinket Mage into your graveyard then you Reanimate the Angel of Glory's Rise and pull the Lion's Eye Diamond from your library and simply go off. I'd also consider Yawgmoth's Will and Past in Flames for graveyard possibilities, and Walking Ballista as it can be tutored out by artifact search given that it's a xx cost it's equivalent is zero and it's the perfect sieve to strain away your opponents life when you have all that mana.
