Dauthi Trapper Discussion

Wintermoon on Ashling, the Fire Extiguisher

Ok, so I took a better look now on my PC and I have a few things to suggest. Firstly, for a deck with so much removal you are missing 2 cards that will help you capitalize more on that removal. Grave Betrayal and Chainer, Dementia Master. I would probably remove Dauthi Trapper from the deck, shadow is very good, but he is a 1/1 which can be easily removed from the game, I'd rather put one of the cards I suggested. With all the evasiveness you have on the deck Hatred would also be a good card to put here, for that surprise kill on someone. Other than that it seems fine, I would have done it slightly different to fit more my playstyle, would probably end up something similar with my Toshiro deck ahaha, but I like your deck, seems fine. Hope you have good games with it. :)

Black has two great, although high CMC, boardwipe spells in Plague Wind and In Garruk's Wake. You might consider those if you play in a creature-heavy meta.

Dauthi Embrace and Dauthi Trapper are also some other considerations to getting your commander damage through. I run those in my Vorath deck. Cards like Lashwrithe and Nightmare Lash are also good staples to run in a swamp-heavy deck.

I like the build, and this is the first time I've seen that commander. Thanks for sharing it.

Snacrifice, thank you for the suggestions, and the upvote. :) I like the suggestion for Hero's Blade, so I'll consider adding it in and seeing how it performs. The reason I'm not running a lot of cards is mainly because I don't know the exist. I played heavily several years ago (I started trailing off during the Kamigawa cycle), and have recently got back in. EDH wasn't really talked about then, but I'd heard a little about it from folks who had played it before it was a "thing." Now, its the only format I'm really playing, but I'm relearning what's out there. I missed about 10 years worth of rotations, I think.

Thanks again for chiming in, I really appreciate it!

I am running both Dauthi Embrace and Dauthi Trapper right now, but when it comes time to sub new things in, I think taking out the trapper is how I'll go. All the stuff in the Maybeboard is a direction I'm trying to go, slowly but surely.

Cool deck! I'm surprised you're not running Hero's Blade since it's a voltron-y deck and you've got a bunch of legendaries already.

Sanitarium Skeleton would give you something to pitch over and over again, but 1B for +1/+1 may not be good enough.

Carrionetteis a neat way to get a secondary removal spell, but you have to wait until someone's tapped out or can't afford to spend the mana(good way to force blue players to dump a counterspell's worth of mana)

Instead of Dauthi Trapper, you could go Dauthi Embrace, which lets you do more with it IMO, though you lose the creature.

Underworld Connections gives you safer on-demand card draw vs. Phyrexian arena, but it costs you a land tap in return. Might be worth it since you have ways to cheat in cards anyway.

Blessing of Leeches is one of my favorite budget black protections auras- free regeneration is amazing.

Looks fun! I've actually been meaning to build a Volrath deck, I might take some stuff from this :D
