Crashing Drawbridge Discussion
3 weeks ago
Thank you so much for the input! I really appreciate it. :D
Some of the suggestions i've already had in the deck prior and for some reason or the other i felt like they didn't work that well yet (a lack of skill might also be a reason here), but i'm really intrigued by:
Cauldron of Souls – would be even greater if i hadn't just taken out most of my ETBs :D
Empowered Autogenerator – that one might just be plain awesome, just because it slowly ramps me to lategame and my local meta is quite light on artifact removal.
Inspiring Statuary – I've had it in when i played fewer artifacts before then took it out. But looking at what the deck has become now, i'm seriously considering putting it back in!
Gilded Lotus – I have no idea why i took it out. Especially cause i'm a little light on the 5-drops and i prefer a smooth curve for my Kozilek counters. ;)

Hey Spell_Slam, thanks for the advice! I think I definitely overlooked Crashing Drawbridge, it's a lot cheaper than some of my other haste effects. I think I'd cut Ogre Battledriver before Fervor, since Fervor is cheaper and more resilient as an enchantment.
My deck isn't as focused on the dragons as they're more of a backup plan (I've actually considered cutting them), so I'm not super hot on Ilharg, the Raze-Boar. I think Etali, Primal Storm is nice, but expensive, not a dragon, and likely to eat removal.
I think you're right on Light Up the Stage since it's really low impact for EDH.
The reason I have Brass Squire is to effectively "discount" playing a protected Drak, and Magnetic Theft is not free, so it's likely to discount by only 1 or 2, while also being one shot. If my playgroup starts running more greaves and boots, I'll slot it in to steal theirs.
Thanks for the advice!

Cool deck! Seems fun.
Magnetic Theft is another good way to equip expensive cards to your creatures. Being able to do it at instant speed can also tip combat in your favour or blank a removal spell or a board wipe.
Etali, Primal Storm is another good way to get card advantage and be a good fatty at the same time. Not a dragon, though.
Ilharg, the Raze-Boar is another great way to cheat in some dragons. He's also a really good trampling, self-recurring body himself.
In terms of potential cuts, I personally don't like Fervor. I think it's too expensive for the effect and you have plenty of other haste-givers. Even Crashing Drawbridge seems like it would be more effective. Light Up the Stage also seems a bit weak for Commander; Etali seems to fit the bill a bit better for card advantage. With all your protection spells and equipment and Ricochet Trap, I wonder if Bolt Bend is necessary.

Meteor Golem Crashing Drawbridge Return of the Wildspeaker Thrashing Brontodon while not elves can be excellent additions to the deck End-Raze Forerunners is one of the best overrun wincons possible for the deck in my opinion. thanks for the tech

Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage is a solid way to get Bruna on board on the end step before your turn, giving her pseudo-haste. Might even be worth running that new Crashing Drawbridge, you really want to be swinging with Bruna the turn your play her.

Hey, Shielded by Faith is a combo with Siona to make infinite 1/1 tokens, but you can't actually win the game by attacking with tokens unless those tokens have haste. Without haste you have to wait until your next turn, a full cycle of your opponents turns, to then attack with the tokens. Giving each opponent a full turn to kill the tokens with a board wipe or stop them another way.
With Crashing Drawbridge on the battlefield and able to be tapped it can give all tokens haste which is a way to win attacking with tokens the turn you create them. Sigarda's Aid with Faith gives your opponents less interaction to stop the combo. With Aid and Siona on the battlefield, at your last opponents end step, cast Faith enchanting/attaching to Siona to combo. Then on your turn you can attack and win with the tokens. Doing it this way an opponent can only have mana and an answer at instant speed to stop you. Aid is a good card with other Auras and interactions with enchantments which Drawbridge is not.
Flickering Ward and Alpha Authority are good with Aid since then they can protect Siona at instant speed. Ward has other uses since it can bounce itself back to your hand which is good to repeatedly make tokens or draw with enchantresses.
Good luck with your deck.

Good start! +1
At some point I think you'll want to hold back on the anthems and Exalted and get more haste enablers, 2 cmc ramp, and doubletrike/double power effects in here. Reason being, in my opinion, you only really want to see 1 anthem per game, to get him to 7 power, the rest should be getting him out early or with haste to get attacks in, and then giving him doublestrike/power to kill in two hits. Haktos decks are going to rely heavily on mulligans to get the right set up.
