Capsize Discussion

Springfluter on Dream Horizon

Well, Kruphix, God of Horizons means you have alot of mana. And you already play a Deadeye Navigator, you should consider Venser, Shaper Savant - this lock wins games!I suggest playing Capsize as well. Why is Talrand, Sky Summoner in your list, it is not that spell heavy!?

Capsize is another card that fits the perpetual bounce theme

I don't think the regular mill subtheme works super well; it's a really convoluted win con for EDH excepting infinite combos, and you don't have many cards that take advantage of the graveyards of other people. I think focusing on the infinite combo aspect harder will give you a more streamlined gameplan for sure, and the alternate win-con should probably be tokens with Oona.

To that end, here are some more great tutors to grab Navigator and your other pieces:

Tainted Pact

Plunge into Darkness <-- works amazingly with Oona tokens.

Diabolic Intent

Dark Petition

Demonic Tutor

Sidisi, Undead Vizier

There are some better board control cards as well:

Toxic Deluge

Glen Elendra Archmage

Notion Thief

Faerie Macabre <-- for graveyard synergies, if those are prevelant

Go for the Throat


Fast mana:

Dimir Signet

Worn Powerstone

Talisman of Dominance

Mind Stone etc.

And some more combos/alt win con ideas:

Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter is also an infinite mana combo.

Scion of Oona can let you swing for the win.

Capsize + infinite mana lets you bounce whatever you choose.

Not that all mill pieces aren't good; Altar of the Brood obviously mills out with infinite bounces, Sword of Body and Mind is just good value, Jace's Mindseeker can be nuts with other go-big decks, etc. But the cards that exist just to mill, like Keening Stone, Mirko Vosk, Szadek, Dimir Guildmage--cutting these for a more streamlined approach will help the deck function smoothly.

Of course, if you love the mill strategy, play what you love! But a better commander for that approach is probably Phenax himself.

I love the statements made in the philosophy of your deck, especially about the "social contract" of commander. I played a game in which the last hour were slave to a single deck's Capsize/buyback. Unable to win, this Damia deck simply locked the three of us out of the game while it slowly drew towards its win. I finally answer with an Armageddon, ending the drawn-out monotony and securing a hard-fought, solid win, and I become the villain of the table, whose deck people now refuse to play with. (Only land destruction I run, btw) I applaud your stance, level-headedness, and wish more people would read and take this to heart.

Some Buyback spells like Capsize or Forbid could do wonders, since they'll return to your hand AFTER Arjun does his thing (increased consistency).

Other than that, though, the deck looks good! I don't generally play Caged Sun in two-colored decks though.

You definitely get my +1, because it looks like a fun deck :)

Capsize and Spell Burst are fine, but its all dependent on what works in your playgroup. They might be efficient because you can recur them without effort, but cmcwise they might be slow, clunky, or ineffective at times.

If they feel like they constantly work, stick with em, or if you find yourself using them without buyback a ton, might swap them out.

Constant Mists is the only recurable fog I know of in these colors, its buyback is pricy but saccing lands to ensure a planeswalker ult is gg

I would highly recommend cards like Reality Shift and Rapid Hybridization, spot removal in these colors is usually hard to come by, but reality shift always feels right when you use it. Using it multiple times in a game to remove problem commanders or eliminating a recursion target like Sheoldred, Whispering One saves games.

since mana isn't a huge problem and flying is a weakness, Predator, Flagship might help you more adequately protect your walkers from flyers and eliminate opposing flyers. I used this trinket temporarily in an early brew of my deck and loved it to pieces, it just got outmoded in my meta until recently when my friends decided to do angel and dragon tribes again, ugh.

Ah alright! What do you suggest other than the ovbious Chain Veil and Doubling Season? I thought about Garruk, he's actually in my Karametra deck! So I think I'll find a spot for him in here, I really like the idea of having a buyback fog effect like i have the cards for Capsize and Spell Burst. I love the Arachnogenesis! I have not seen that card, I recently came back from magic after BFZ came out.
