GoblinsBeatElves on Daretti's Dragons

3 days ago

Hmmm... Daretti’s Dragons. When I first saw this name, I didn’t think the deck would work very well, considering that most dragons do not work with artifacts. However, this actually seems like a pretty strong deck, with the artifacts doing all the cool stuff and the dragons coming in late game for lots of damage. Now, I don’t particularly like to play artifacts. I’m sure that many people do, but I just prefer creatures and spells. However, I have experience with dragons, and should be able to give you some good suggestions for that bit of the deck. I would guess that you probably want dragons that interact with artifacts, so here’s what I have for you:

Dragons that do artifact stuff: Covetous Dragon

Freejam Regent

Furnace Dragon

Hoard-Smelter Dragon

Moltensteel Dragon

Other cool dragons you could use:

Scourge of the Throne

Furyborn Hellkite

Dragon Mage

Bogardan Hellkite

Ancient Hellkite

And some more artifact dragons:

Henge Guardian

Teeka's Dragon

Clockwork Dragon

Lotus Guardian

Now, you might use a or a f these, or you might use none of them. I am just giving ideas that you COULD use. So try them out if you want, keep experimenting. Hope this helps! Good luck!

unstablemustard on Kaalia, Winged beatdown

2 weeks ago

The biggest drawback for my Kaalia deck is when she hits the field without haste. She eats removal in almost every 4 man pod I have ever played against. Hall of the Bandit Lord is well worth the 3 life loss for her. Also Bastion Protector, Grand Abolisher, Fervor, Hammer of Purphoros and Urabrask the Hidden.

Balefire Dragon, Thundermaw Hellkite, Yosei, the Morning Star, Adarkar Valkyrie, Chancellor of the Annex, and Bogardan Hellkite are excellent inclusions.

Might I also suggest Twilight Shepherd and Karmic Guide for that sweet recursion?

Swords to Plowshares and Angel of Serenity for removal. Phyrexian Arena and Bloodgift Demon for card draw.

Spirits on Kaalia in the works(Final Draft Maybe?)

Hi Khentimentu,

Welcome to the world of Kaalia of the Vast, fellow play Kaalia, Mirror Breaker

Dragon Tempest is a CMC2 Fervor, Mother of Runes won't like it but she'll live!

Grand Abolisher is very nice, means Kaalia of the Vast can attack and play an A/D/D on your turn without interference. He is $6 though, so doesn't help your under $200 budget, but you have some room it looks like.

Karmic Guide is pretty cheap, has protection: and has recursion built-in, I really like her, she can be abused too if you choose. Could easily replace Tariel, Reckoner of Souls, he's too random, and can't get your graveyard.

Should also spend the $8 on Master of Cruelties. Instant kill-con.

Terminate is an inexpensive removal, more modular than Condemn. Lightning Bolt feels a little under-powered with all the good Exile in .

Archfiend of Depravity is a reasonably good budget demon. Mortify is a good budget removal spell. Aegis Angel is a good budget angel, and protects Kaalia of the Vast. Bladewing the Risen is good budget recursion dragon. None are auto-includes though, but there's some stuff there they could replace.

Hellspark Elemental feels wrong, does he combo something? No synergy.

Talisman of Indulgence > Rakdos Signet > Manalith (Commander's Sphere is better too, Cultivator's Caravan)

Battlefield Forge is a budget land that can get rid of some of the "ETB Tapped" lands your running.

Crackling Doom feels in the flavor of this deck because of the red spells you play. Thunderous Wrath is awesome to top deck, but sucks in the hand, can always just burn a player if drawn at a inconvenient time. Bogardan Hellkite also feels kind-of in this flavor too.

Flameblast Dragon won't work if he enters tapped and attacking, you'll have to wait until next turn to activate his ability.

Whip of Erebos its $3 I think, but gives all your creatures lifelink, and has recursion build in. Especially great to trigger guys like Rune-Scarred Demon.

I'm testing Demonlord Belzenlok, I think he's going to work out, I have a feeling.

Since your playing Ugin's Nexus, not knowing the commanders, I'm thinking Ob Nixilis, Unshackled might support that too.

Necropotence is $6 I believe, but can help with the draw issues.

Hopefully you find something useful here. Nice build. +1.

DarkStarStorm on Hunt the Throne

3 weeks ago

Ashling the Pilgrim: Doesn't really do anything here. Sure, you can boardwipe, but there are better things for this.

Bogardan Hellkite: Eight mana for the effect? This is overcosted. Consider Inferno Titan or Ryusei, the Falling Star.

Dack's Duplicate is in a lot of Marchesa lists, and it shouldn't be. It's better in almost every way to run things like Captivating Crew or Sower of Temptation.

Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief Kinda just a goodstuff card, with a commander that doesn't want to be running goodstuff.

Duplicant: Allow me to introduce you to Patron of the Vein.

Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius: Again, why is this here? This ain't a goodstuff deck.

River Kelpie is a trap. I have played this card EXTENSIVELY and I find it to be a "win more" card. It ONLY works when you have your board state set up, whereas Harvester of Souls or Dark Prophecy gives you cards regardless of whether or not the things that died slipped through the cracks.

Shadowborn Demon: It's a goodstuff card that isn't even good. Run Vindictive Lich or something else that actually has synergy with Marchesa.

Finally, why don't you have any sac outlets? Ashnod's Altar, Attrition, ect. I feel like you're not entirely grasping what makes Marchesa powerful. You need to find a way to build around her and abuse all of her abilities. I'm not even recommending my list, just that you look at what stands out about the general and go from there.

First edit:

Out:

Zoetic Cavern - replaced with better land option

Trepanation Blade - doesn't really belong b/c it's not a mil deck

Syphon Flesh - replaced with better wipe option/ not a token deck

Stranglehold - good card, really just inspires a lot of hate in my playgroup (searching for lands

Stoneforge Masterwork - moving away from Counters/ doesn't help kaalia

Scale Blessing - moving away from counters

Righteous Cause - good card, but not a lifegain deck(will probably find its way to my Oloro deck

Prismatic Lens - deck is overflowing with mana ramp and this one doesn't help as much as the others

Master Warcraft - fun card, can't seem to use it efficiently, might add it back in

Lightkeeper of Emeria - Good early blocker, swapped for a fatty, might add it back in

Gleam of Authority - Moving away from counters

Contagion Clasp - moving away from counters

Cathars' Crusade - moving away from counters

Bomb Squad - moving away from counters/swap for fatty

In:

Reya Dawnbringer - recursion

Hall of the Bandit Lord - Haste option

Karmic Guide - recursion

Swiftfoot Boots - haste option/protect Kaalia

Gisela, Blade of Goldnight - more effective aggro

Tainted Field - land upgrade

Merciless Eviction - wipe upgrade

Steel Hellkite - fatty/wipe

Harvester of Souls - card draw

Hallowed Burial - wipe upgrade

Bogardan Hellkite - a lot of options with this fatty(spot removal, aggro, clear small tokens)

Kokusho, the Evening Star - aggro upgrade

Austere Command - wipe upgrade

Rune-Scarred Demon - tutor option

NV_1980 on It's Stompin' Time!

Hi Jacka2813,

Thanks a bunch for your comments and upvote.

Hamletback Goliath is a great idea. What I like most about him, is that he also grows whenever a creature appears on an opponents' side. His most important drawback, is that unless he has support from some sort of trample-enabler, he can be blocked by a 1/1 chump. The deck does contain some of these enablers though. I could even replace a basic land with a Rogue's Passage and make him unblockable that way (as well as a host of other creatures). I'm going to think on this for a bit; also on what I would cut should I decide to add him.

Dragonlord Atarka and Bogardan Hellkite are cool as they sort of double as damage-sorceries. However, I believe the deck currently contains more powerful nukers atm that I'd rather use (Angel of Serenity, Balefire Dragon and the eldrazi's). Still, I'll keep this in mind though in case the deck somehow needs to become more nuke-heavy.

Thanks again.

Hey,

Cool looking deck, I have a similar style deck but not in commander format, but it runs in a similar style with Elvish Piper

A few creatures you could consider are Hamletback Goliath as he gets bigger with every other creature you play and with the guys in here he could get or retry massive.

My last two suggestions as creatures would be Dragonlord Atarka and Bogardan Hellkite as theyre pretty big and do some decent damage or removal when entering the battlefield.

Thanks,
