Cage of Hands Discussion

TypicalTimmy on LGS has a Problem Player...what ...

Build a Selesnya deck and run things such as Darksteel Mutation , Lignify and Song of the Dryads . If you want to make it Bant instead and have counterspells, you now have access to Imprisoned in the Moon . There is also Humility , Overwhelming Splendor , Kasmina's Transmutation and Kenrith's Transformation .

Then, so it isn't killed when turned into a blocker, you have Pacifism , Cage of Hands , Prison Term , Arachnus Web , Arrest , and like just a whole slew of them in blue.

Basically you're going about the deck in the wrong way. Stop trying to "kill" him and start trying to "out pace" him.

You can also prevent him from even gaining life; Leyline of Punishment , Erebos, God of the Dead , Stigma Lasher , Forsaken Wastes , Everlasting Torment , Witch Hunt , Havoc Festival , Rampaging Ferocidon , and Archfiend of Despair .

You're going to want solid enchantment removal. For those, you have; Tranquil Path , Back to Nature , Paraselene , Bane of Progress , Primeval Light , Tranquility , Rampage of the Clans , Fracturing Gust , Austere Command , Tempest of Light and Merciless Eviction .

I'd highly recommend you go Bant and just ignore the Rakdos options I have given you, but those are there in the event you want some extra possibilities.

So you have two things here; Prisons & Mass Removal. They are working against each other, so you want something that protects your own boardstate; Teferi's Protection , Avacyn, Angel of Hope , Darksteel Forge + Mycosynth Lattice , Starfield of Nyx + Eldrazi Monument , Soul of New Phyrexia , Heroic Intervention , etc.

Run someone like Tuvasa the Sunlit , Jenara, Asura of War , Arcades, the Strategist or even Rubinia Soulsinger .

I'd recommend you run all of them, actually. Put Tuvasa as your Commander so you always have access to card draw. He basically turns your first enchantment each turn into a cantrip (Trading 1 card for 1 card).

Cage of Hands , Faith's Fetters , Prison Term for aura based removal... I have always like Mystic Restraints but I’m biased towards it

Cards like Conviction , Flickering Ward , Cage of Hands , and Forced Worship are sometimes cool ways to generate extra experience counters.

Ghostly Prison and Sphere of Safety are popular ways to keep your opponents from attacking you (although I think Ghostly Prison might be a little less budget-friendly).

Vault of the Archangel is a good utility land, since life gain is a good way to keep yourself alive during a long game.

Happy brewing!

you could use Conviction, Brilliant Halo, Gossamer Chains, Cage of Hands, Shackles and Mourning for repeatedly trigger Underworld Coinsmith.

Ashes to Ashes, Read the Bones, Night's Whisper, Sign in Blood, Angelic Purge, Afterlife, Snuff Out, Unmake, Pentarch Ward, Cho-Manno's Blessing, Blessing of Leeches are all really good and serve you as card draw/ protection or control.

maybe think on adding something like Pestilence or Shrivel/Nausea for boardwipes like effects.

Another suggestion: in my opinon, some of the strongest cards in pauper commander are white enchantments. Since you are running white, you may want to consider auras like Arrest and Cage of Hands to control the board.

Ghostly Prison would help you out wonders here, so yeah i’d defo recommend a full 4x of that.

Looking for cheap interaction, i’d advise something like a playset each of Cage of Hands and Beast Within. The cage will give you creature control you can move around (though Journey to Nowhere could be equally viable), Beast Within just deals with so many issues you might face it seems worth - and the 3/3 shouldn’t pose much of a issue... it seems to me though that you need at least 8ish of these kinds of interaction cards just to help bide time.
