Daxos of Meletis Discussion

I really like Righteous Authority, it doesn't draw aggro very often for some free draw and also Cathedral of War is very helpful with Daxos of Meletis.

It all depends on the competitiveness you are going for. I am not the best helper when it comes to the competitive scene since i am more of a casual player, so i won't be able to help you make it really competitive if that's what you are going for with the build.

If you are a casual player, i would recommend running cards you enjoy and would love to use.

However i will come with my thoughts on the cards :) Depending on your budget i would run 2-3 copies of Geist of Saint Traft (Keep in mind the legend rule when playing). Selfless Spirit i think you are primarily running it for it's sacrifice ability than the body itself.

Eidolon of Countless Battles seems pretty fun as a one of could possibly be a big threat in the late game

Sandsteppe Outcast Seems slow, but i can see the funny and potential combo with Anointed Procession.

For me Daxos of Meletis seems pretty solid to with just the first ability. Think of the combo between Daxos of Meletis and Invocation of Saint Traft or Eidolon of Countless Battles boosting him. Invocation of Saint Traft could be a possible suit for the deck to?

Found some other cards you may like Geist-Honored Monk (just saw you had suggested it, but gonna keep it here xD), Mausoleum Wanderer, Rattlechains and Nebelgast Herald.

Ok, I think I'm getting pretty far. I do have a couple questions. First, how many Geist of Saint Traft should I run? Right now I have 2 of them and that seems pretty good. But I want all the suggestions I can get. Second, do you think that Selfless Spirit is worth it. It doesn't seem to pull its weight. It is a sorry and a flyer for cheap which is why I am so much on the fence about it. But there there are other cards who might work. I was thinking of either running a single Eidolon of Countless Battles, or two coppies of either Sandsteppe Outcast or Daxos of Meletis (preferably Sandsteppe Outcast)

Our decks are kinda similar? Some cards I found useful:Daxos of MeletisErebos, God of the DeadRhox FaithmenderBlood ReckoningObelisk of EsperI wouldn't do Blood Baron of Vizkopa. Does better in Orzhov than in Esper decks.

Hello fellow Magic players! I have recently started brainstorming on a budget esper colored deck revolving around the gun ability of Royal Assassin with the snagging of creatures with Adarkar Valkyrie. Looking to make it control based maybe putting in creatures like Grand Abolisher, Daxos of Meletis, Grand Arbiter Augustin IV, and maybe Angelic Arbiter to tax the opponents and limit what they can do while I kill and take creatures they put out. Looking for other possibilities of things to put in it. Any preferences and opinions are greatly appreciated!

Hi Hiotoko, Thank you so much for all this help you're giving me, it means a lot!The reason I don't have Liliana's Caress in there is honestly because I don't know what to take out for it.Same with the other cards you've suggested, it took me ages to decide what to take out for them.My playgroup consists of a lot of creatures, we have Alesha, Who Smiles at Death,The Gitrog Monster and Daxos of Meletis and so on, with a couple of decks that rely on infinite combos such as Riku of Two Reflections

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.
