Bxbx on Grenzo, Havoc Raiser, Blood in, Blood out!

Hi, I like your deck!

Here are some suggestions:

cuelix on Sidar Kondo: give them toys ...

2 weeks ago

Thanks for all the suggestions everyone! I appreciate the token generators you've linked RazortoothMtg the deck can't really do what it wants to do without them!

Oh my gosh I just realized just how much Bident of Thassa would pull some weight in this deck, I really like that one! Grenzo, Havoc Raiser seems like a must include now that he's been suggested as well!

Suns_Champion: Disrupt Decorum gives me so much inspiration to play red in commander, I just love some of the chaos red has access to!

I just prefer when I am conveniently placed out of the effects of said chaos. For that reason I usually prefer Fumiko the Lowblood over Avatar of Slaughter. That being said Fumiko can get the party started and Avatar can finish the job!

Still really uncertain whether I wanna go WURG or WBRG, blue can incentivize attacks with possible card draw a la ludevic, edric, and curse of verbosity and can even redirect attacks with Illusionist's Gambit / Portal Mage. But I think I'm more comfortable giving my opponents little weeny creature tokens that I can prepare my deck to deal with than I am offering them extra cards that might totally unravel my strategy! For that reason I believe Curse of Disturbance beats Curse of Verbosity in this situation. Black also has the cards that insure that if someone gets fed up and wipes the board I get to benefit from it with all the death triggers!

Thanks for all the helpful discussion! Feel free to comment further if you have any other ideas!

I'd do Sidar + Ludevic. Get Grenzo, Havoc Raiser in there. Cruel Entertainment. Any red - force attack enchantments... of which there are plenty. Avatar of Slaughter (because 2/2 suddenly double striking is great). Forbidden Orchard and things like it. The new curses could be KEY: Curse of Opulence, Curse of Verbosity, Curse of Disturbance, Curse of Misfortunes, Overwhelming Splendor

You need to have ways to force your opponents to attack. For example, Bident of Thassa. You activate, they can either pay through your Ghostly Prison effects and attack you or attack an opponent for free, but they must attack. Same idea with Avatar of Slaughter, Basandra, Battle Seraph, Curse of the Nightly Hunt, Fumiko the Lowblood, etc

Benevolent Offering, Hungry Lynx, Kamahl's Summons, Phelddagrif, Questing Phelddagrif, etc

I've got a similar God deck that runs less off the Enchantment bit and more off indestructible. I've found a lot of use out of the Avatars like Avatar of Woe and Avatar of Slaughter

Also had great success with the Praetor's, which are kinda like Phyrexian Gods. Of course the trick with them is to keep them on the field for more than a turn...

Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite

Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur

Id say Avatar of Slaughter is a good one, as well asBerserkers' Onslaught and subsequently Rage Reflection, simply because if you are already running big, stompy creatures, you may as well get twice the value. Also, there are a good handful of Gruul planeswalkers that give Trample, Haste, or both to creatures you control.

TheAmazingSalsa on Basandra and combat step shennanigans

1 month ago

For a while I've been playing a chaos themed Maelstrom Wanderer deck and it kind of sucked the fun out of the game, I enjoy games where everyone is having as much fun as me, but chaos just seemed to crush dreams and hopes (and I didn't even win the game in the end, I would just wait for people to concede).

After a while, I decided that my mistake was that I made everything chaotic, so I'm starting to build a Basandra, Battle Seraph deck, focused entirely on the combat step (such as "all creatures attack if able" followed by cards that penalize attackers/blockers).

I have seen some cards that peak my interest, like War's Toll and Avatar of Slaughter , and I was hoping that someone would give me good suggestions on often forgotten enchantments that have no other place than on a deck that's not focused on winning.

Thanks in advance!
