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?

My first rare that I bought was someone that I would love to have as a commander again, even if he is almost totally useless in the format: Sol'kanar the Swamp King. Why? Because I loved the art of Richard Kane Ferguson. The other card he had that I loved the art on was Dakkon Blackblade. He is a little less useless in EDH, but still hard to come by.

You need to find a way to give Dakkon Blackblade a modern print, that card is one of my favorites.

Maybe try some 1 mana removal like Dismember or Disfigure.

kanokarob thank you for the response, and tagging all the related cards. Too bad Dakkon Blackblade is an enemy of Chromium, or else that would have been a good card to add for flavor.

Chromium Rhuell is Nicol Bolas' brother, and one of the winners of the Dragon War on Dominaria.

After the war, he and his life partner Piru became the servants of a planeswalker named Geyadrone Dihada. She summoned them to fight Dakkon Blackblade, who tried to control him and force him to kill Piru. Chromium was strong enough to overpower Dakkon, draining most of his life away, but with Dakkon's last strength, he teleported Chromium to an unknown location, and slew Piru himself.

The next time Chromium was seen, his was in the guise of Ham, the Tickery Man, And assisted the rest of the High Council of Mors Ridge in keeping his sister, Palladia-Mors, asleep.

After this, Chromium once again served a planeswalker named Faralyn, and befriended his spellsquire, Ravidel. During the same time period, Chromium's brother, Arcades Sabboth, was summoned by Leshrac to fight Kristina, who killed the elder dragon.

That's only relevant because as the Shard of the Twelve Worlds closed, Faralyn called a meeting of planeswalkers trapped within it, at the Summit of the Null Moon. In attendance were Leshrac and Kristina, so tensions were high. To make matters worse, Faralyn had secretly betrayed them. He, Leshrac, and Tevesh Szat planned to start fighting between the people present, hoping that the death of a planeswalker would provide enough energy for them to escape the Shard. No planeswalker died, but Szat killed Chromium, who apparently was powerful enough to allow them to escape. During the battle, Ravidel was killed as well, but Kristina and her lover Taysir joined forces to return him to life. Instead of being grateful, Ravidel was furious that they saved him instead of Chromium. Ravidel plotted vengeance for ages, gradually becoming more and more insane. Eventually this would lead him into starting the Planeswalkers' War.

Ravidel took Chromium's corpse and fashioned it into what he called a Planar Barge, which he used to carry his army in while planeswalking.

All of this is either paraphrased or directly quoted from the mtgsalvation wiki article, which this sentence links to.
