Daxos the Returned Discussion

Undeaddroo on Curse you

Bleona1753 I just tested out this brain child tonight and realized 2 things. More creatures and more Land. That would probably handle some of the quick creature by adding in Daxos the Returned due to him making more and being a low cast and low activate. Thanks for the suggestion. Im forsure going to cut Stalked Prey due to the counters being added and then smacked at me right after :( but its a new brain child and that means test test test.

Thanks for the suggestion!

Have you thought about adding Daxos the Returned?

My first piece of advice, is to look at another Commander. You seem to like the Enchantment, Tokens, Stax, so I would look into the "Call the Spirits" preconstructed deck with Daxos the Returned as the Commander.

I believe he will be a better Commander than Athreos for what you're trying to do. You also get to run Athreos in the deck!!

You keep the same colors, so any cards you already have can go right in. It may also provide you with some good cards for the deck.

Here is my attempt to figure out my "7 by 9" classification of my deck (Referenced article about "7 by 9"). The deck doesn't really fit into the model well since many of the cards overlap by just being enchantments that there's a lot of categories/single cards that only care if other enchantments get played.

The deck itself cost a lot to get rolling and I like where the ramp sits right now even if it's a bit high on cards, but being a 5 color deck has its requriements. I'd like to increase the number of cost reduction cards. And slightly increase the number of draw, and combo cards. If I had to I would probably remove some of the buff/removal/graveyard cards. The issue I have though is that I want to keep the same number of creatures as early agression is this decks downfall. If I could I would also update the mana base and then be able to cut some of the ramp cards.

Number of enchantments: 36 (a * represents that this card cares about enchantments) (15 are auras)

Mana (14)

Hey NV_1980.First of all, thank you for commenting on my deck. I really appreciate the feedback.Secondly, this looks like an AWESOME deck. When I started in commander my first deck was a Daxos the Returned deck and I loved it but unfortunately couldn't stick with it.I do have a few suggestion, however. Looking over your list I noticed that you didn't have any board wipes. I don't know what your playgroup is like but I know in mine it's essential to run at least a few. A great one I found for a deck like this is Extinguish All Hope. The amount of card draw in the deck also seems a bit scarce. In my experience you should be aiming for about 5-10 cards that can draw you cards, so maybe adding some cards like Ancient Craving, Greed or Necropotence may help. Also, if you are going heavy on the stax theme, you might like to consider painful quandry and maybe even Nevermore. I hope that this helps. :D

colton815 on 0/0 Tokens can be sacrificed?

sac a creature before WHAT resolves? before Daxos the Returned resolves? no. the effect is whats creating the token so no you obviously cant sac a token being created by an effect before the same effect resolves.

Robborino on Daxos the Returned: Pillow Fort

1 month ago

I've been using my Daxos the Returned commander deck lately, an old C15 deck that I bought with friends. Back then I had made some adjustments to it, then I quit playing MTG for a few years. Well, I'm back and I'd like to "modernize" this deck so to speak.

I'd really like to use enchantments, obviously, but I'm also looking at pursuing a pillow fort, given that I'm playing 5-6 other players at any given time. I'm also open for additional mechanics people think might be a good add.

See my deck for additional details. Thank you all for taking the time to read this, look at my deck, and offer advice!
