Daxos of Meletis

Legendary Creature — Human Soldier

Daxos of Meletis can't be blocked by creatures with power 3 or greater.

Whenever Daxos of Meletis deals combat damage to a player, exile the top card of that player's library. You gain life equal to that card's converted mana cost. Until end of turn, you may cast that card and you may spend mana as though it were mana of any color to cast it.

Daxos of Meletis Discussion

I have a Rafiq with Swords build which might have been like your old offensive deck. The allstars of my deck are the ones that have triggers when they deal combat damage like: Augury Adept, Cephalid Constable, Cold-Eyed Selkie, Daring Saboteur, Daxos of Meletis, Thada Adel, Acquisitor, and Medomai the Ageless - with double strike all their triggers happen twice :-)

Also you should consider Stonehewer Giant cause you can attack then tutor and equip for two mana!!

I also like Brass Squire for fun combat tricks

Check out my deck if you'd like.

cornpie987387 definitely adding support for the Dovescape lock that's exactly the kinda of stuff I want this deck to do plus I have a bunch of 1/1 Bird tokens so I'd like to put them to some use. Thanks for the recommendations I added some to the deck and to my maybeboard like Daxos of Meletis until I find a copy! Appreciate it!

The more protection the better! Whenever I say swap, feel free to add. I am just assuming that you want a card with a similar effect and offering cards that I think are better.

While I am at it, I swapped Daxos of Meletis for Augury Adept in my commander deck, mostly because it basically has unblockable. If you are running Illusionist's Bracers and Rings of Brighthearth you also want to consider Medomai the Ageless. With one of those, you could take two extra turns!! Come to think of it, you might want to consider changing your commander to one of those two cards. Huh.

If your detaining stuff use Lyev Skyknight its a really good blue white card for that.

I would recommend a Whispersilk Cloak for both hexproff and unblockable, both seem useful for your deck.

It does not look to me like you have enough fliers for Pride of the Clouds to be worth it. Unless you are planing on using Dovescape with it. If your looking for a flying heavy hitter I would use Akroma, Angel of Wrath, Baneslayer Angel, Iridescent Angel. If you are looking for something flying related try Stormtide Leviathan. If you are looking for something cheap for use in the early game try Deft Duelist or Judge's Familiar. Deft Duelist can be really nice against those pesky death touch thingers and Judge's Familiar can counter something later in the game.

On the off chance that you want to keep pride of the clouds and go for the Dovescape lockdown thing. Throw in a Guardian Seraph and a Godhead of Awe as well as a Lightmine Field. Voila, complete lock down.

Also, with your Illusionist's Bracers and Rings of Brighthearth, Admonition Angel is a really good fit.

Possibly switch 1 Reflector Mage for an additional Champion of Lambholt, but not sure about this one.

Daxos of Meletis perhaps?

You might consider Daxos of Meletis if you feel the need for more creatures that fit your theme of using opponents threats against them. I have several more suggestions that fit that theme, but I hate making long posts on other people's decks so I will just refer you to a deck I have with a similar central theme. It is called "Would You Kindly". I can't link it for some reason.

Yo, I'm back -- just realized AEtherspouts is perfect for you. This is, once again, an awesome list.

Simon_Williamson, I just realized today that Daxos of Meletis is an Aikido commander for sure. He gets better the bigger your opponent's creatures are, and literally wants you to play the opponents' decks. I started brewing him today @ Fight Club: the Meletis Aikido Dojo to satisfy my inner Johnny and had to refer back to this list for a great reference on Azorius Aikido.
