Daxos the Returned Discussion

Not sure Tendershoot Dryad fits with this deck. It doesn't get counters, just +2/+2. Also, consider these cards, since they give experience counters that stack with Meren's:Daxos the Returned, Ezuri, Claw of Progress

If you actually want another pre-con:

Some of the other 2015 decks are, or can be, really good and don't draw the same hate: Ezuri, mentioned above; Daxos the Returned(1) is narrow but can be incredibly powerful; Mizzix of the Izmagnus is classic Izzet spell-slinger - super fun if you're into that kind of thing; and Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas is the one I see least - Boros stomp n smash.

I'd also second Daretti artifacts and Prossh, as two decks that are both good/fun out of the box and have potential to be broken with some tinkering.

If you want to avoid getting targeted altogether and play group politics / late-game wins, get Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis from 2016. Hide behind your pillowfort until the time is right...

(1)Here's my Daxos deck if you want to see what that's about (decklist is slightly out of date)

DrukenReaps on Ways to protect Lich?

I would look at doing for colors. Maybe Anafenza, the Foremost so that your opponents will have to exile a bunch of things too? This will give you access to green so you can always ramp into the black you need and give you Sterling Grove and Privileged Position. I would also put Avacyn, Angel of Hope and other indestructible in the deck.

this link should help with ideas:



Due to the triple and quad black the only other things I would consider for commanders are:

Daxos the Returned- interacts well with enchants

Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts- there is a cost for hurting you

Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet- similar to anafenza

Horobi, Death's Wail- if nothing can live long enough to attack you will never exile

Razaketh, the Foulblooded- always tutor what you want

Stopping damage or reducing it seems rather important to me for this kind of deck, otherwise these cards will just work against you. take a look at the pillows I use in Divine Decree some of them should really help.

Ajani Steadfast emblem and Palisade Giant would be great ways to protect you from exiling a bunch of things. I really like the giant because some people run damage that can't be prevented and the giant redirects the damage.

BMHKain on What Brawl Legend to run...

@multimedia: Out of all that is mentioned, you made the best point; I am at least thankful stuff like Iona, Shield of Emeria has cycled long, LONG ago. Anyways I have four ideas for underrated Orzhov commanders: Daxos the Returned, Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts, Triad of Fates, and that one Human Knight of Dominaria. Not sure who to choose, but in any case for Brawl, I'll see what I can do for Mono Color; there isn't even a full cycle of new Duals, and Tri Lands are pretty much gone.

BMHKain on What Brawl Legend to run...

Anyways, for those that wish to help for BW Commander Suggestions, here are the requirements for thus:

Ichi: No Life Manipulation. Too many commanders of this identity either can weaponize this, or worse...

Ni: No Graveyard Manipulation: We get it; Orzhov is about the afterlife. There is a commander that can do this without the Grave though...

San: No flipping Vampires! Besides, given lore, Sorin Markov should escape Nahiri's encasing of stone anyway.

Yoh/Shii/DEATH: Which reduces us to just 3: Daxos the Returned, Triad of Fates, & Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts. & all three are average. What is your opinion of what blows the least?

Just asking for ideas still. Any thoughts?

Would Daxos the Returned be of any benifit?

But, Daxos the Returned isn't modern legal. Oh well...

If you'd like to branch out to include some non-hexproof creatures, add Alpha Authority. To maximize your enchantments, add either Ajani's Chosen, Daxos the Returned, or Celestial Ancient. For more ideas on how to get this deck to the next level, use some cards from Commander 2015. Here it is:https://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/feature/commander-2015-edition-decklists-2015-11-06. Hope my suggestions help, keep up the good work!
