Daghatar the Adamant Discussion

Catpocolypse on The twin guilds of life and death

5 months ago

Ima just clear up a couple things about EDH and rules so that you can have a better experience in the future.

  1. You MUST have 100 cards INCLUDING your Commander. While you have 100 cards there are other things.

  2. You MUST have a Commmander(also called a General). You dont have one.

  3. Whatever color your Commander is, that is the color your deck has to be. For instance, I can only play Naya colors(Green, White and Red) if Atla Palani, Nest Tender is my Commander because she doesn't have any Black or Blue, just Green, White and Red. But if I play Golos, Tireless Pilgrim , I can play all 5 colors, because even though he only costs colorless, he has an ability that uses all 5 colors. Using these rules, I can play Daghatar the Adamant is Abzan colors, not just white, because he has an ability that features both Black and Green.

  4. You can ONLY have 1 copy of each card. This does not include basic lands or cards that specifically say otherwise like Shadowborn Apostle

  5. Here is a link to the EDH wiki: https://mtg.fandom.com/wiki/EDH Use this to further enhance your knowledge, because somethings are difficult to explain through a comment.

Based off your description, i would use Kambal, Consul of Allocation or Ghost Council of Orzhova as your Commander. I have a Kambal, Consul of Allocation deck here: Kambal, Consul of Life Drain that you could use to fill in the slots you are going to have open. I will readily admit however, that I have not built a Ghost Council of Orzhova deck nor that I am any good at building EDH decks competitively. My talents lie in Modern.

Hope This Helps!

DM me if you have any questions that I can help with. You could do this on any of my decks or at my Profile Page Catpocolypse and I would be HAPPY to help.

Tyrant-Thanatos on Junk colors in EDH

6 months ago

So I've become a really big fan of EDH over the last few years, but I've never managed to build a junk deck (), despite it being by far my favorite color combination.

I just took a look at the available commanders, and it's no wonder!

Ghave, Guru of Spores doesn't seem to cater to what I'm looking for out of the colors at all, which is large resilient creatures that I can reanimate time and time again.

Teneb, the Harvester seems prohibitively expensive to cast and to use. Six mana for a 6/6 flyer that has to connect with face, just to have to pay a further 3 to reanimate something? sheesh.

Anafenza, the Foremost is in the same boat as Ghave, plus I have a personal dislike for her.

Karador, Ghost Chieftain seems okay, but pretty much directly inferior to Muldrotha, the Gravetide .

Doran, the Siege Tower is possibly even further from what I want than Ghave.

Daghatar the Adamant More +1/+1 counter stuff. and he's horrible to boot.

Kethis, the Hidden Hand might be interesting, but I'm afraid he'd just devolve into superfriends.

So I guess the question is, what do I do? Who should I build if I want a resilient, aggressive deck that can throw down threats that attack, and block, and come back, and never stop? And how to I build them? Teneb and Karador seem like the only real choices, but I need some tips on making them work. Is this sort of playstyle even viable in EDH?

ShreddedByCrows on Commanders by Power Level [EDH Tier List]

1 year ago

Hey there!

First of all, thank you so much for all your efforts at keeping this Tier list so consistent! It's always nice to have some Tier references to look at when we're planning to brew with some new EDH ideas.

I have a little suggestion to present because I was surprised to see Daghatar the Adamant in the Low-Power Tier.

Considering Daghatar the Adamant as a commander that gives you access to 3 colors and a situational (needs at least one another creature on board (could be under an opponent control)) mana sink with infinite mana (by no means as powerful as other commanders that provide mana sink by their own like, for example - pretty much a bad example given that she provides access to blue, Oona, Queen of the Fae ), I think he at least deserves a spot in the Mid-Power table. With infinite mana (not really hard to pull off with black to tutor all the needed pieces), you may put infinite counters on target X other creature(s) and you have infinite ETB triggers. It makes it a pretty decent/solid pick for a casual EDH deck, and I could even see him as a tricky commander for competitive purposes (that being said, I don't play much cEDH and he certainly won't be good enough).

He also synergizes beautifully with persist mechanic alongside some sacrifice outlet in order to have infinite ETB on cards such as Woodfall Primus . In the same colors, Gaveh is without a single doubt better for this archetype, but Daghatar remains a potent Commander pick.

Here's my casual Daghatar decklist if you mind giving it a look > Adamant Rules.

I decided not to run any sort of infinite mana combo because I find them boring (personal opinion) and I wanted to stay on a casual level to interact fully with my playgroup. So it's not the best template if you're looking for an optimized Daghatar list, but I'm convinced he has some powerful tricks' potential.

legendofa on Commanders by Power Level [EDH Tier List]

I freely admit to not being the most EDH-focused player, but it seems to me like the Tier 5: Casual list could be split up. I'm not going to suggest moving any of them up to a higher tier, but even the most casual player (performed here by me) can envision a deck for, say, Palladia-Mors, the Ruiner or Daghatar the Adamant much more easily than Shimatsu the Bloodcloaked or Torsten Von Ursus. I'm going to guess the tier rankings are deeply ingrained in the PlayEDH Discord conversation, but there is an objective difference between "casual" and "unplayable trash", and I submit that right now, there's a much greater spread in power level within Tier 5 alone than between Tiers 1 and 2, or between 2 and 3. Is there any space for a Tier 6?

ZendikariWol on Atraxa +1/+1 counters for critters

1 year ago

Okay so just going through my list here, I can split it into a couple lists: counter producers, counter enhancers, and counter synergies.

Counter producers give +1/+1 counters to things. Among them are Anafenza, the Foremost, Bloodtracker, Chasm Skulker, Daghatar the Adamant, Dragonscale General, Drana, Liberator of Malakir, Hangarback Walker, Heroes' Bane, Managorger Hydra, Mikaeus, the Lunarch, Prime Speaker Zegana, Toothy, Imaginary Friend Citadel Siege, Curse of Predation, Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants, Cathars' Crusade, Echoes of the Kin Tree, and finally, arguably the best of this group, Ajani, Mentor of Heroes.

Counter enhancers increase the counters placed on things: Gilder Bairn, Pir, Imaginative Rascal, Vorel of the Hull Clade, Winding Constrictor, Doubling Season, Hardened Scales, Primal Vigor, and Solidarity of Heroes.

Finally, counter synergies, such as Abzan Battle Priest, Armorcraft Judge, Battlefront Krushok, Cenn's Tactician, Fathom Mage, Zameck Guildmage, Hindervines, Inspiring Call, and Bred for the Hunt.

Boy oh boy do I hope that's enough to get ya started. There you go.

DemonDragonJ on Moving Counters with Doubling Season ...

1 year ago

If a player controls a Doubling Season and then uses either Forgotten Ancient or Daghatar the Adamant to move +1/+1 counters from one creature to another, will the counters be doubled?
