Ashiok's Dream Realm

Whenever a spell is cast, if it was cast from a player's hand, exile it.

At the beginning of each player's upkeep, they may cast one spell exiled with Ashiok's Dream Realm.

I'm genuinely unsure how to destroy it. I guess Cataclysm , Apocalypse ...I mean Merciless Eviction , Austere Command , Cleansing Nova , and all spot removal require a sizable amount of coordination.

Perplexing Chimera and Knowledge Pool , but slower and able to be played earlier.

I'd like to see someone else's most annoying card!

Hey, I'm here to help as requested. This is a very interesting idea that I haven't seen before, +1.

Even though your mana curve is pretty low, I'd recommend adding a few more lands. However, if you find that lands are consistently not your problem, then you're probably fine with 32 lands. Tuning a mana base has never been my strength.

One spicy card to consider is Helm of the Host . With Aurelia, you can generate infinite attack steps (as long as you 'stagger' your aurelia attacks). Could be a quicker way to finish a game, although I'm not a fan of infinite combos like that.

If you want more stax-y effects, also consider Storage Matrix . I'm a little surprised you're not running more boardwipes, being a stax deck in white. I'd also recommend Rout and Wrath of God and Cleansing Nova .

I would also recommend swapping Chromatic Lantern for a cheaper mana rock. I'd only recommend the lantern for 4-5 color decks that desperately need the fixing, but 2 color decks like this should be fine. Perhaps Prismatic Lens ?

You might also want to add Unwinding Clock . I think you have enough artifacts to make it worth it.

Lastly, I'd also like to recommend Fall of the Thran as it's a land destruction spell that isn't too painful for your opponents.

Hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions!

  • Consider 4x Squadron Hawk its easy white cards in hand for your life gain.
  • If you are considering going to an FNM you might want white protection spells to keep your win con alive.
  • Tapped lands are a little slow I might consider pulling those out.
  • Ranger of Eos is an amazing card to play. A good 4 of.
  • Proclamation of Rebirth is pretty good as well, but it is like 7$.
  • Being you want to stall out the game to keep your life total high, play cards like Day of Judgment Cleansing Nova and Wrath of God
  • Flagstones of Trokair is also good. (being you can't have 2 legendary of the same name, you remove one and the graveyard trigger happens). This gives you some deck filtering so you draw less lands and draw important cards.

So just wondering if The Wanderer would protect creatures from cards like Cleansing Nova or Kaya's Wrath

Couple quick administrative things. In the future, please use the Rules Q&A section of this site when you have questions about cards, card interactions, or rules. That section has some additional functionality, such as the ability to mark an answer to indicate your question has been resolved.

I have gone ahead and moved this thread for you, as well as marked an answer on your behalf, as you’ve indicated the question was resolved and you have no further follow ups.

Also, please remember to link your cards with double brackets, like so:

[[conclave tribunal]]

[[ixalan’s binding]]

[[Cleansing Nova]]

Conclave Tribunal

Ixalan's Binding

Optimator on Dig Up Her Bones

Yeah, your list looks great. Seems a little light on interaction but that might be inevitable considering how many dinos you need to run and the ramp spells to support them. Rite of Passage is some sick Enrage tech!! Crush Contraband is a great new card. Glad you included Runic Armasaur --seems awesome. I count twelve ramp and discount cards and that's probably where you want to be! It's a lot but dinos.

I know your slots are tight but here are some cards worth putting in the memory banks/maybeboard.

Duelist's Heritage is half-price since the reprint. Might be worth considering. Double triggers and no equip cost, after all. Small upside of being usable in political ways.

I know it's not cheap but Smothering Tithe is great in this deck. Land Tax obviously too.

True Conviction would be castable for you if you're looking to upgrade later. The lifelink might be great since your strategy is a bit slow to start.

You might want to consider putting Swords to Plowshares and/or another instant-speed removal card for when Polyraptor and Marauding Raptor start to combo because without stopping the chain the game ends in a draw. Being 1 CMC is very attractive since you've likely cast a spell once the chain starts.

Nahiri's Machinations might be a good budget way to use your commander liberally. Also worth noting would be Prowler's Helm and Trailblazer's Boots . Key to the City and Manifold Key too.

Kinjalli's Sunwing seems worthy of consideration. I now you're going for Enrage-tribal but the effect shouldn't be underestimated. Worth putting in the maybeboard IMO.

Colossal Majesty is a good one for this deck (most likely). Don't forget Harmonize

Where it me I'd include one more silver-bullet board wipe, like Planar Cleansing , Cleansing Nova , Austere Command , or Hour of Revelation . If you're worried about your enchantments you could do Hallowed Burial or Descend upon the Sinful .

Since you're running so few artifacts it might be fun to include some hosers like Stony Silence , Creeping Corrosion and Shatterstorm (my favs), or Fracturing Gust . Pulverize is on-flavor! By Force and Vandalblast are good too. There are tons of other great interaction cards but with so few slots and with all your ramp you may as well go for the big ones. Purify is good but you may want to keep your enchantments around. Seeds of Innocence is a funny one. Collector Ouphe is good but it's not a dino and it'll probably get killed by your Enrage stuff. Rampage of the Clans is a fun new one. Slight flavor fail though.

Wear / Tear , Ancient Grudge , Destructive Revelry , Hull Breach , Nature's Claim , Unravel the Aether , Deglamer , Dust to Dust , Return to Dust , and Ray of Distortion are solid in case you need something

If you're looking for advice i can tell you a few things:

You aren't running a lot of artifacts (and i think you don't need to) so you can get away with running Austere Command , Cleansing Nova , and Creeping Corrosion to good effect.

Your deck as it stands is also capable of drawing lots of cards with your signature spell so you might want some discard outlets like Grimoire of the Dead and Vivien's Arkbow .

Also also you have three basic lands and uh six nonbasic lands that fetch the basic lands. Maybe just run nine basics. Or cut the primo dual lands unless you really want to show them off,

xaarvaxus on Brago - Where did my cards go?

Cards like Ghostly Prison and Propaganda plus putting in some boardwipes like Wrath of God will help curb token strategies. Throwing down Cleansing Nova and then blinking out your team with Eerie Interlude is going to give you a huge advantage.

Beating out big flyers that can block your commander will probably come down to more evasion like Whispersilk Cloak and Steel of the Godhead [which should replace either Wings of Aesthir or On Serra's Wings as those 2 auras really don't do enough].
