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.

I'll look at him!


I might have Gwafa lying around... maybe he will do.

Currently from also a Reddit post these are the ones I'm looking into:

Oloro's life gain won't save you. A card like Erebos would end that right away...or Tainted Remedy. And while Decree of Silence stops spells, it doesn't stop activated abilities...which means certain cards could still break through your defenses. If Venser, the Sojourner can get his emblem out (not impossible), you'll start losing your entire defense. What if someone is playing a Daxos of Meletis or Gonti, Lord of Luxury commander? They might steal one of your pieces ahead of time, putting you at a severe disadvantage.

I think Necropotence is insanely good in any lifegain deck. Daxos of Meletis is also very nice, considering your disruption theme. In that sense, Notion Thief might also be worth considering. Should you need any other ideas, I'd invite you to check out my Oloro deck.

I will post it on tapped out but it will be a while. I'm running a Daxos of Meletis Deck atm. I'm going to keep running this till I win one.
