Crackdown Discussion

LittleBlueHero on Eight Tails Enchantment

Don't let the haters get you down. I have been tweaking a mono white deck pretty much since I started playing commander. It definitely has a lot of drawbacks but its fun to play and when it works it works well.

Speaking from experience the biggest problem I have is balancing the deck. If I want to play big splashy white creatures one usually has to lean towards stax effects and keeping other players from interacting with you until you can find enough mana/rocks to start going. This however, is counterproductive because it puts a big target on my head because im being the fun police.

So I stopped running things like Crackdown, Kismet, and Authority of the Consuls. or any other card that effected other players all the time. I switched them up for more reactive cards like Wing Shards that would allow me to have turns where I could play "draw go". It takes the target off my head and makes people more leery of coming at me.

Its worked for me pretty well. Right off the bat people aren't paying attention to me because im in mono white. But there are plenty of strategies that can work in the color, you might just have to work a little bit to find ways to get there.

As for you deck my only questions would be Hundred-Handed One and Pull from Eternity. I might be missing something with pull, but I am not sure what you're pulling back with it.

Also if you want some control, you might like Crackdown and Retribution of the Meek

War Tax, Mark of Asylum, High Ground, Reconnaissance, Well-Laid Plans, Authority of the Consuls, Blind Obedience, and Crackdown might all be worth testing to slow down the board.

Have you ever tested with something like Archangel of Thune + Nyx-Fleece Ram (for a second upkeep trigger) + Karlov of the Ghost Council? Serra Ascendant seems like a helpful 1-drop, too, perhaps.

Have fun playing!

Unlife: Eldrazi Monument cost is kinda up there. As for Storm Herd, i dont use it because most of my token producers are chosen because they keep on giving and have med to low cmc. Plus by the time i get ten mana ill be wanting to cast other stuff. Also im steering away from anthem cuz they tend to have high cost nd imo arent worth it.

Steelspike:Crackdown and Crawlspace are both good. Ive considered both before. I consider them more staxy than taxy. Ill consider them again. Now Contagion Engine for some reason i never considered before nd i think its a good suggestion. Not sure i like the others you mentioned. Im unfamiliar with that combo but i will look more into it.

Profet93 Thank you! Gotta do what you gotta do in mono white. Dont have much to work with. Ive been considering Mind's Eye for a while nd i think i will add it in there.

Thank you all for your time.

Crawlspace and Crackdown seem like pretty good tax cards...

Also, Umbilicus/Blood Clock and Contagion Engine seem pretty good.

Omen Machine is great against control decks. Also, you can bounce it with Blood Clock/Umbilicus so you can skip the reveal if you want. With Vedalken Orrery you can play it during your opponents upkeep, or keep it for a political reasons.

Just a few thoughts. :)

Flagellum on Big Booty Gang

Can't believe I missed Mentor of the Meek for card draw in my Doran deck. Apparently I haven't updated my deck for a while now. My deck focuses on punishing creatures based on their power. But I have a few ideas to run by you, use them as you wish:

Abzan Beastmaster: card draw

Eidolon of Rhetoric: can neuter some decks and has a nice body to boot.

Guiltfeeder: Possible evasion and can hit for 4 with Doran out. Added damage is better the longer the game goes on.

Kami of Old Stone: I don't care for vanilla critters but this one was too good to pass up

Marble Titan: another Meekstone v2.0

Necroskitter: steals opponent's critters and plays nicely with Obelisk Spider and his infect friends Priests of Norn and Tangle Angler.

Priests of Norn/Tangle Angler: See above, Also can be finishers with cards like Tower Defense ect.

Raving Dead: testing this out. Can be brutal with cards like Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa/Behind the Scenes or after a wrath effect that targets higher powered critters. It's a Quietus Spike with legs.

Sun Titan: recursion

Tree of Redemption: huge with Assault Formation or a last ditch life saver.

Noetic Scales: currently testing but probably the first thing to be cut.

Crackdown, Retribution of the Meek, Wave of Reckoning: all higher power critter punishing cards

My deck if you want more ideas:

Doran's Spring: 'Tis the Season of Big Butts

Commander / EDH Flagellum


StolenVHS on Balan, The Wandering Voltron

I forgot how good Silent Arbiter is. I'll probably have to find a place for him in my Balan deck. Ward of Bones is really neat, and something I'll probably try in my Neheb, the Eternal deck. Holy Mantle and Crackdown were 2 others in particular that wouldn't have crossed my mind, but are awesome inclusions. Check out the equipment base in my Balan deck to see if any of the niche stuff in there tickles your fancy. I tried to put in as many viable haste enablers as possible, like Haunted Cloak (which you have) and Fleetfeather Sandals, so that as soon as Balan comes down he can activate his ability and swing. Some other cards that are great for Balan that aren't in my build yet are Knight Exemplar and Bastion Protector. Sweet build, dude! Glad to see someone else running this dude. He's a house. P.S. Grafted Exoskeleton flat out kills people.
