Crackdown Discussion

flanagin25 on Aura You Glad I Played Bruna

V 1.2

  • I pulled out Spirit Link in favor of Crackdown, to add a bit more protection

  • I moved Corrupted Conscience, since Infect might be a bit too powerful for my group but I could swap it back in for a more competitive game.

  • I thought I needed a bit more card draw, so I put Pariah in to the sideboard with the addition of Crackdown providing additional protection and added Reparations.

I feel like I don't have enough auras but I'll do some play-testing tonight to see if that's actually the case.

Maybe more tutors + Angel's Grace to combo off of Near-Death experience.

You can also do something like Solemnity + Force Bubble in these colors. Phyrexian Unlife is good with Solemnity, too, especially with something like Karmic Justice or Greater Auramancy on the field.

Insidious Dreams might be a great set-up card for you if you can protect your top deck from manipulation. The usual tutors (expensive and inexpensive alike) might all have a role to play, too.

If you want to play pillow-fort or "Abzan Prison" (or "Junk Prison"), which might also be a good name for the deck, you really want to assemble your defense as quickly as possible, so the more prison effects and tutors the better. You might be able to cut down on some creatures that don't advance your plan. That is to say, play creatures that tax like either Thalia, or provide a Banisher Priest or Shriekmaw effect).

I love the white counter-spells, but you're not really sitting in the control seat in this deck because you want people to be unable to interact with you, so trim everything that doesn't make you invincible or remove a threat. Think cards like Anguished Unmaking and Hero's Downfall.

Finally consider a few wipes, especially tricky ones like Black Sun's Zenith, Settle the Wreckage, Rout, and Comeuppance. See also Arena of the Ancients, Crackdown, and Juntu Stakes.

Have fun brewing!

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. :)
