Daxos the Returned Discussion

WargRave on Atraxa, supreme being

1 day ago

It's cool to see an enchantment themed Atraxa deck, really unique. I'll try to avoid suggesting anything with high usage on EDHREC since the description says "different than a typical Atraxa deck".

You might want Vivid Meadow and the other vivid lands in place of Canopy Vista, Prairie Stream, Rupture Spire, and Undiscovered Paradise. The Future Sight storage lands, Aether Hub, and Tendo Ice Bridge are options as well.

Since you're going an enchantress route and you have a planeswalker subtheme, Sphere of Safety, Ghostly Prison, and Propaganda would be nice. Aura of Silence is generally good in any deck that would want Seal of Cleansing. Maybe you even want Daxos the Returned, since you can proliferate the experience counters. Hardened Scales is nice in that it hits the enchantment theme and the proliferate one.

There's not too much card draw other than the enchantresses, how about Dovin Baan and Kiora, the Crashing Wave? Painful Truths, Harmonize, and Concentrate also work regardless of theme. Etched Oracle is nice, and Fathom Mage is better, albeit in about half of Atraxa decks.

Not too much ramp either it seems; it'll be a long time before you can cast Omniscience most games. Coalition Relic and Gyre Sage can benefit from proliferation, although the Astral Cornucopia in 2/3rds of decks is better. That's the second most signature card in Atraxa, but then again you've got the most signature, Deepglow Skate. Making a different deck is good, but "different" shouldn't mean cutting back on basic deck functions like draw and ramp imo. Throwing in a few tutors couldn't hurt either.

@wyatt0781 -- It's hard to say with some of the new sets that came out, but when I was first scouring gatherer for cards to use, green had limited (albeit powerful) options compared to black for enchantress (which I realize you didn't ask about, but black is worth mentioning as an option). The best color combo for the commander itself is still probably WUB, (Zur the Enchanter and Ertai, the Corrupted). Black has some pretty powerful enchantment options, especially with the Daxos the Returned commander deck that came out in 2015. WUB or WB do need some balancing though, because most will be detrimental to the owner.
As far as just WG goes, the color I cut most when making this was probably blue - I think there should still be enough options with just WG to make a full commander deck out of. Balancing WG should be easy. There are a lot of directions to take enchantress decks in, and I used blue for the control and specifically to leverage Enchanted Evening.

To finally get around to directly answering, yes I thing WG could be as good or better than Bant. I think for it to be so, though, it would need to have a higher amount of creatures and probably utilize more from the Theros set. Some of the recommendations DaringApprentice made should be helpful towards that end!

JararoNatsu on Make This Deck Modern-Legal?

1 month ago

Hi all!

I have a W/B Enchantments deck, and currently I run 2x Daxos the Returned in it. Now of course, since Daxos is from Commander 2015, he is not Modern Legal. However, he plays a pivotal role in the deck, as I use the tokens he generates to boost Sphere of Safety.

Basically, can anyone think of a worthy, Modern-legal substitute for this card? I myself cannot think of something, and so I look upon others to assist me. I can't quite find something that fits so perfectly, but unfortunately Commander sets aren't legal in Modern and so I am stuck in a predicament.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Make sure to add Daxos the Returned for repeatable counterspells.

A better option for life gain would be something like Blind Obedience. You just gain 3 life (assuming a 4 person game) all the time by playing your deck. Also its an enchantment and slows you opponents down a lot more that you would think.

if you plan on playing Starfield of Nyx remember it will kill your tokens from Daxos the Returned by making them 0/0's.

Cool. I can do trades. My binder is not 100% up-to date on here. My deckbox account is more up to date. I am also gonna build a Daxos the Returned enchantment deck if you have cards that might work.

I'm currently at work, and will look through your binder tonight to see what else we can trade.

Also if you're looking for BW token generators, I quite like Daxos the Returned. Cheap enough to pop a few out mid-late game, they can become up to 6/6 with your enchantments, and they can be saced off.

White or green for Enduring Ideal and other good enchantment cards like Mesa Enchantress or Enchantress's Presence? I would guess one of those colors would add more than red or blue. Maybe Daxos the Returned for a good general?

Sorry to question the colors! But curses are cool.
