Nice suggestions. I will definitely consider adding at least one of the latter to the deck. I might think of Gideon's Lawkeeper as well, but what i like about Blinding Mage is that while it is a little more expensive it can block 1/1 creatures without dying and cannot be swept away by things like Electrickery or other spells that deal 1 damage to multiple creatures or target creature.

Thanks so much scaesura! I appreciate all your help! I completely forgot about Riptide Laboratory. I like your suggestions for enchantments and artifacts that make my creatures unblockable. Originally I was going to put in some of the cards you suggested like Aqueous Form or Whispersilk Cloak, but I wasn't sure if I would be better off finding a card that gave mass evasion rather than a single creature. I'll take into account your suggestions and play around with my creatures a bit and see what I can do!

lazarusdraigon, as for my wincon, I hate to say that I'm not entirely sure. I know that sounds awful, but I don't see a singular wincon...maybe I'm just not sure how to define it. If anything, I see the potential for a wincon if I attach Freed from the Real or Galvanic Alchemist to Courtly Provocateur, Blinding Mage, or maybe even Archivist. If I can tap my opponent's creatures, I can swing in with Mirror Entity or something that buffs my creatures for a ton of damage.

I hope that was specific enough...if you have any more questions, please ask!

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.

No data for this card yet.
