Daxos the Returned Discussion

NV_1980 on Stopping Power!

1 week ago

The reason why I added some token-facilitating cards is mostly because of Daxos the Returned himself. In every other way, this deck is all about enchantments, creating that nice pillow/staxfort and watching em squirm trying to get through my defenses. I think Twilight Drover and Drogskol Reaver are nice, but not better than any of the current creatures supporting the main theme of the deck.

Are you going for a Budget Deck? You may want to give the Theros Enchantment Creatures a look if you want more cards with Keyword Enchantment. There are also a number of cards that can work will with enchantments - Sphere of Safety and Daxos the Returned to name a couple. It will depend more on what end goal is - Combo/Aggro/Token ect. Anyway, good luck with the deck.

MTGApprentice2016 on Daxos The Returned - Budget upgrade

2 weeks ago

The biggest disadvantage Daxos the Returned has is the lack of evasive ability granted to his tokens. So in my mind, this is the place to start upgrading the deck. Sadly, some of the items Im going to mention will be a tad pricy so without knowing your budget, they may be out of range. Akroma's Memorial is a great card that would fit here as the key words are just strong with this card. A cheaper alternative would be Eldrazi Monument. To buff one token, or really any one creature, Eldrazi Conscription is great and synergistic with your commander. A cheaper alternative would be True Conviction which, while not as strong is a good alternative that adds incremental value as you make more tokens with Draxos. In addition to this unlike Eldrazi Conscription it impacts all of your creatures. Another card that does some serious work, Blind Obedience. I have seriously lost games do to it.

If you want to be a bit control-ish you could add Martyr's Bond and Ashnod's Altar which will ramp you some colorless mana and potentially clear the board of threats when used in conjunction. I dont know your feelings on tutors, but Diabolic Tutor, Increasing Ambition and Beseech the Queen are all fairly inexpensive and can help you find the pieces you need. I would also recommend one of the cheaper printings of Swords to Plowshares as it is just a solid piece of removal and can be fairly inexpensive.

Buy it now. It's so worth it. I own one, I have it in my Daxos the Returned deck. About the only deck I can think of it being an important piece. I don't even run it in Zur the Enchanter.

how many enchantments will this actually cast? cards like Mesa Enchantress, Celestial Ancient, Daxos the Returned seem less than ideal since zur just puts them on the field. maybe Skybind or Sovereigns of Lost Alara? also, trinket mage has one target, Sol Ring, maybe get the three artifact lands?

Congratulations on building your first commander deck! While I know it isn't a very exciting suggestion, I would recommend adding in a lot more ramp. Even though it might not seem like it, 3.55 is a relatively high average cmc and since you are in green, you should take advantage of all the amazing ramp that it has! In particular, I would recommend adding Farseek, Kodama's Reach, Skyshroud Claim, Deathcap Cultivator, Font of Fertility and a Sol Ring to get started. This will help your deck be faster and more consistent! Another area where your deck seems to be lacking is in the area of card draw. While you aren't in blue, black and green have a lot of card advantage that synergize with your enchantment theme! I would start by including Phyrexian Arena, Enchantress's Presence, Necropotence, Abzan Charm and go from there! There are also a few cards in your deck that should be taken out, simply because they are either bad or just underwhelming. While these cards might be fine in standard or modern, they are just not up to par for commander. This includes cards like Mark of the Vampire, Sunbound, Verdant Haven, Thoughtseize and Goldenhide Ox. I would also add in some more board wipes and removal since you are in black and white. This might include cards like Wrath of God, Merciless Eviction, Utter End, Path to Exile, Hero's Downfall and Martial Coup. Lastly, I would add in a few more cards that reward you for having enchantments and creatures with high toughness. Stuff like Daxos the Returned, Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper, Kor Spiritdancer and Sapling of Colfenor all seem like they would be a perfect fit for your deck! Good luck!

WargRave on Atraxa, supreme being

1 month 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.
