Blinding Powder Discussion

Suns_Champion on Flashback to the Past

Dralnu seems really risky to run as a commander. One Blasphemous Act and you're pretty much out of the game.

So let's protect him!

Magebane Armor, Blinding Powder, Shield of the Avatar, Soratami Cloud Chariot maybe?

If not, some emergency sac outlets may help. Ashnod's Altar, High Market etc...

Further, I think the deck could use a greater mass of instants and sorceries. Maybe up it from 25% of the deck to 33%, cutting some creatures and enchantments.

From the maybeboard, Secrets of the Dead, Nephalia Drownyard, Cyclonic Rift, Ancient Excavation, and Rise from the Tides all seem pretty good.

If you go really heavy into the self mill aspect, some creature recursion might be nice. Raise Dead, Fortuitous Find, Dread Return...

Good luck! +1 for risky commanders!

I'd started working on a variant of this without the puresteel's for budget reasons and they're just too necessary. Still, I think Sigarda's Aid is a boon for when you would end up drawing over hand limit which I noticed happening a lot. Just wait to finish out one or two equip drops and unload them during opponent turns when the 7 card limit is not a factor. I was also consistently mana flooded with 17 in this style deck, so I dropped to 15, breaking a few of my core rules for deck building, but with so many 0 drops and such a low curve and massive draw it's not an issue that I've seen.

I replaced the paradise mantles for Kite Shields and the Bonesplitters for Blinding Powders which when you can flash them in are amazing salvation drops that can also then surprise boost other creatures via puresteel/edificer draws, and I don't need the extra land.

The biggest thing I noticed is how badly this fails against chump blockers and weenies. A 2 add either in main or sideboard of Dragon Throne of Tarkir fixes that completely, and better than o-naginata, and throws hundreds of damage downfield fairly consistently. My friends and I play a lot of multiplayer so that's handy enough for me to keep main not side. Seriously though... the throne on a kor token with all of the cranial platings and most other things on an armament master (1 each of accorder's shield on your double strikers and flyers obviously) is absotively brutal... then just move the platings back in your second main phase.

My original build's numbers were fairly different and less consistent but yours curved out so much better that I modified mine to nearly match with a few fairly minor differences. Hope you don't mind but sent an upvote your way as payment. Cheers

babydaggers, that's a great idea! I'll replace Angelheart Vial for that. As much as I love Angelheart Vial for the theme, art and potential card draw, it has not been as useful as I would wish for a drop card. Sun Titan will definitely be a card worth having.

I've had a ton of fun so far playing this deck. Another change I am going to make is replacing Blinding Powder with Skullclamp. Blinding Powder has just not been reliable. Staying the Monarch is a huge game-changer, so being a bit more aggressive with Skullclamp should help keep it that way.

Emzed - First off thank you very much for the detailed feedback.

Blinding Powder is reequippable to make sure he stays on the battlefield and Godsend is there for the case of not getting the hexproof, trample, ect on him quick enough. This deck is still in playtesting and those were just cards I liked. As far as blocking it'll happen eventually. Godsend and Sword of Kaldra are there to get rid of any creatures they decide to block, and the trample gets through that with full damage.

I don't want my commander to have shroud. Whispersilk Cloak is one that I am purposefully avoiding.

I kind of wanted to go to more artifact way of voltron for this deck. I'm sure aura's would make it more competitive, but it's not what I wanted. Loxodon Warhammer is there for Armadillo Cloak, Trailblazer's Boots are there for Traveler's Cloak even though I do see the difference and benefits of the aura instead of the artifact.

The two lands seem unnecessary in the deck. Okina, Temple to the Grandfathers is only +1/+1 and Llanowar Reborn is only a +1/+1 counter. This deck is voltron so the small benefits don't seem too necessary. I might do the Okina, Temple to the Grandfathers because it can enter untapped.

I do understand the more ramp aspect though. And in the form of creatures helps with Sublime Archangel. You've mentioned two cards to take out, any others?

Blinding Powder and Godsend seem unnecessary. Do you honestly expect people to block in meaningful ways against your giant double striking attackers? I would rather play Whispersilk Cloak, Hot Soup, Armadillo Cloak, Spirit Mantle, Unquestioned Authority, Rancor or Traveler's Cloak to get around blockers altogether.
Medomai the Ageless looks decent for this deck, if you grant him double strike you get multiple extra turns.
Having a fast start seems like a big deal, so maybe you want to add Arbor Elf, Avacyn's Pilgrim, Llanowar Elves, Wild Growth, Utopia Sprawl and Carpet of Flowers (that card looks very situational, but test it, if there is even a single Island somewhere on the board it's solid, and it can easily be better than Sol Ring).
Your distribution of basic lands seems off, you have too many Islands for your needs. Maybe find room for Okina, Temple to the Grandfathers or Llanowar Reborn?
