Dakkon Blackblade Discussion

Philoctetes on Neheb, Summoner of Comets

4 weeks ago


Love the reports!

You continue to rave about Loreseeker's Stone - I think I have to test it out at this point! It is no doubt quite powerful.

Humble Defector is undoubtedly a powerhouse, I am actually considering running him in a couple of my Mardu decks at this point, I completely agree the politics of it all are an impressively powerful bonus on the draw.

I also played a game with Neheb this weekend. Ended up winning a 4 player pod, Dakkon Blackblade control, Kruphix, God of Horizons ramp/control, a friend borrowing my The Spirit of Self-Sacrifice Zurgo Helmsmasher piloted Aikido/control list, and myself on Neheb.

Kruphix got out to an early lead with a Seedborn Muse + Capsize lock on the table. I had a ramp heavy hand, doing nothing until turn 4 but landing Thran Dynamo followed by Hedron Archive + Caged Sun. I was identified as the biggest competition for the Kruphix player, who basically just forced me to re-deploy my ramp every turn with his Capsize lock.

At some point I had a miniature explosive turn dropping Neheb + Price of Progress instead of re-deploying ramp, playing Reforge the Soul and praying. I hit support pieces - Lightning Greaves and a few other things. Greaves + Neheb were summarily bounced in that order, setting us back to square 1.

Dakkon player interacted enough to force the Kruphix player to over-extend his own interaction, allowing the Zurgo player to wipe the board with a Blasphemous Act, Kruphix dropped the Capsize shields to save his Seedborn Muse bouncing to hand. I was next and was able to follow up with Neheb plus Lightning Greaves and Acidic Soil, generate big mana, Aggravated Assault and technically go infinite (my meta typically doesn't allow, but we needed the game to end so we called it!)

It was an oppressive game that we all felt was clearly over due to the Kruphix player's dominant early position, but Neheb can truly win from a lot of very behind situations!

If you're aiming to win I'd definitely go with Dakkon Blackblade. Esper opens you up to a lot of powerful cards, plus I think he's just better than the other two ones. Chad's just a little too slow, I feel.

You should play pauper pirate tribal Ramirez DePietro but only if you talk, behave and drink like a pirate when you play. Arrr'ight!

Otherwise I'd go with ol'Nebuchadnezzar his ability could make for some interesting gameplay and build mechanics.

Dakkon Blackblade just says Voltron which is uninteresting to me. Pauper should be about exploring new ideas since you don't have to worry about super competitive decks. (just my take on it)

Hey guys.

These are the 3 I've narrowed it down to:

Looks like a fun guy, there's a lot of uncommons and commons that would help him in a 8-rack style deck.

Technically not a legal commander but my paly group okayed him if I really want to play him. Getting access to esper might really make the deck stronger.

Totally legal, totally a finisher? I guess.

I'm new to Peasant EDH and wanna really use a legendary creature as my commander (I know I don't have to but still).

Hey there! The deck looks good overall, it looks very fun.

A couple of ideas I had looking through your list - you are running a couple of miracles cards like Entreat the Angels and Temporal Mastery, maybe a few ways to enable those cards on command is in order?

In my "miracles" Dakkon Blackblade build I run Sensei's Divining Top, Brainstorm, and Scroll Rack for some library manipulation, plus Mystical Tutor as a way to miracle on command. Just some thoughts!

By the way, this is one of those cases where your skill as a deckbuilder is exceeding the commander you're working with, because this actually is a good list. It's just that you can make a competitive Pharika list the same way I can make a beast Dakkon Blackblade AdNaus list. But why would I want to?

Hey, I have been looking to make a Dakkon Blackblade EDH myself, any tips for someone trying to make a deck around him?
