Benalish Trapper Discussion

Hi TyroMaven, thanks for the feedback.

Interesting comment about Privileged Position. I'm aware of the requirement for a spell's colour to match the commander's colour identity, but we thought that in the case of a spell where you can choose which colour to pay with, this spell would count as either or and so would be acceptable. But, I'm happy to be corrected :)

I'm inclined to agree about Jace, Memory Adept and he can go. I've also already swapped out Bonds of Faith and replaced it with Heavy Ballista and I'll probably swap in Benalish Trapper instead of Jace. Some interesting suggestions in your comments to keep in mind; is there anything else in the deck you feel could be swapped out?

Recently this deck got destroyed several games in a row by my goblin deck Goblin Festoon and I need ways to shut down Krenko, Mob Boss. Oppressive Rays is one way and I'll probably add in Arrest too.

Aurelia's Command Tapping down the enemy's creatures is a thing, you can see some cards here. I stopped before I even got 1/3rd of the way through that list but here are some examples.

Akroan Jailer
Akroan Mastiff
Alaborn Cavalier
Angelic Benediction
Avacynian Priest
Aysen Bureaucrats
Ballynock Trapper
Benalish Trapper
Blinding Beam
Blinding Mage

One thing I will say though is I like how for every other command there are multiple combinations that are all great together. Like Jarad is deathtouch and then the +1/+1 and trample. Niv MIzzix is Copy a spell and change target or change target and draw (so it even works against Abrupt Decay!). Aurelia's Command just seems lacking.
