Tanrin, Lord of the Siege

Legendary Creature- Human Noble

At the beginning of your end step, each opponent loses life equal to the number of enchantments you control. You gain life equal to the amount lost this way.


My friend wants to build a Daxos the Returned upkeep/end step triggers enchantment build.

Wildcard has been long overdue- but please don't make this into the usual wildcard string.

Daxos the Returned could also be another fun card that would work with all the enchantments you are casting.

Combos/synergies for Treacherous Blessing ? EDHREC pointed out Korvold, Fae-Cursed King , Shattergang Brothers , Daxos the Returned & Cloudstone Curio , and I noticed Ertai, the Corrupted myself. Vraska, Golgari Queen & Doom Foretold works too. (Its native set obviously got several cards that can sacrifice it for profit as well.)

Curse theme might be a bit tough just because there are still so few of them, but I'd say any commander that interacts with enchantments and has black in it would be the place to start. Zur the Enchanter , Alela, Artful Provocateur , or Daxos the Returned would be my first thoughts.

If you're doing orzhov enchantments, I'd definitely recommend Daxos the Returned . And Debtors' Knell could be useful.

Here's the ones I had a lot of fun with. I changed each of these into tricolor decks, so it's the dual color paired with the tricolor it corresponds with. I think any of the 20 are pretty fun and unique in their own way.

Dragonlord Ojutai / Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest extra turns/control

Grimgrin, Corpse-Born /Muldrotha the Graveside mill/grave control

Kolaghan, the Storm's Fury / Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire goblin/dragon tribal

Mina and Denn, Wildborn / Surrak Dragonclaw cheating creatures/creature combo

Selvala, Explorer Returned / Mayael the Anima elf tribal/super ramp into creatures

Daxos the Returned / Ertai, the Corrupted enchantments and sacrifices

Meren of Clan Nel Toth / Anafenza, the Foremost sacrifices and +1/+1 counters

Rashmi, Eternities Crafter / Roon of the Hidden Realm bounce and etb abuse

Arjun, the Shifting Flame / Kess, Dissident Mage spell slinging and mass draw

Brion Stoutarm / Mathas, Fiend Seeker burn and destroy

Mark Rosewater said that we won't be seeing all of the gods in this visit. That makes me think that we won't be seeing anything to do with Thassa and her bident. I could see us getting a look at some conflict or interactions between Erebos and Heliod, and perhaps Athreos will play a part in getting to or from the underworld.

I agree that Elspeth is likely to be changed in some way. Maybe she'll shift to B/W like Daxos did ( Daxos of Meletis , Daxos the Returned ).

I don't believe we will see Gideon. He didn't die on Theros so he shouldn't be in/on any part of the plane. I view his Heartwarming Redemption as simply his own vision in his mind as he was dying.

What might be the most intriguing thing to speculate is who we are following to Theros. Ajani seems like too easy of an answer to me. Maybe Karn makes a stop for some help before he goes to take on New Phyrexia?

A couple more recommendations because they make black and white tokens: Daxos the Returned , Knight of the Last Breath , and Westvale Abbey  Flip.
