Consulate Crackdown Discussion

I... Have no Idea currently. I'm just in the middle of of cutting nearly 30+ cards, Scytec. & getting it lower than 2CMC.

If I had a guess, either Infinite turns with Grand Abolisher, or over Staxing all opponents. I hope there is a card in the mana identity that can help me with Stax Double Edged Sword, where I don't suffer as much. Ideas? Oh, & Consulate Crackdown & Artifact Blast is added anyway...

So, for the pillow fort:

Consulate Crackdown is too situational. I would recommend taking it out for Merciless Eviction, because it is more versatile, and less susceptible to removal. Also, fun things happen with Copy Enchantment+Sphere of Safety...

Have you considered Consulate Crackdown as a one sided mass artifact removal?

Have you tried Consulate Crackdown? It is a one side mass artifact removal.

If you are planning to play group Brawl, you may want to look into board wipes. If you cast your embalm creatures early, a board wipe puts you in a good position while slowing your opponents down. You have options like Dusk / Dawn, Hour of Revelation and/or Fumigate. Oketra's Monument could be good here as well. If you want all the hate, or are playing 1v1, Authority of the Consuls and Consulate Crackdown could help a lot... Or draw a lot of hate in a group game.

Good luck!

I would write a better description of what you're trying to achieve. It is kind of hard to offer advice when all you have to go on is "win by flying." Other than that I would suggest cards that help reduce the cost. Cloud Key, Foundry Inspector, Mycosynth Golem, and Semblance Anvil. Skeleton Shard is a nice graveyard retrieval. Energy Chamber is nice for a counter. I know you said you're on a budget, but consider Mycosynth Lattice and Darksteel Forge (a destroy all artifacts would easily shut this deck down). I use Consulate Crackdown and Mycosynth Lattice as an alternate win condition.

If you found this helpful, please return the favor.

To clarify a bit Artifacts also follow the rules of colour identity. Godsend or Blinding Souleater would be legal with your commander--the former has a White color identity as a component of its mana cost, and the latter as a component of its activated ability. Contrarily Courier's Capsule and Evolution Vat would not be legal, as they do not have White colour identities.

I run Sigil of the Empty Throne in a deck that is 43% enchantments--it has been a powerful finisher in that deck, but the deck's construction is absurdly skewed toward enchantments. I am not sure it would work well in most other decks, but wanted to mention it as you wanted an angelic theme.

Paradox Engine + Isochron Scepter allows for some infinite combos if you are running a large number of mana rocks. You can use it for casting Holy Day on each opponents' turn in the early game, and eventually use to pump out infinite mana, for cards such as Entreat the Angels (which fits the angel host theme you said you wanted).

Some other cards to consider:

  • Mesa Enchantress - card advantage
  • Lightmine Field - strong pillowfort card, particularly against wide decks. However, if your win condition involves attacking with lots of creatures, you might want to forgo this one.
  • Darksteel Mutation - removes an enemy commander without giving the opponent an option to return the target to the command zone.
  • Consulate Crackdown - remove their mana rocks, and any remaining threat your opponents might be.
