Daxos the Returned Discussion

JararoNatsu on Make This Deck Modern-Legal?

1 day 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.

Cmasa435: Replaced Phyrexian Gargantua with Puppeteer Clique. Side Board Mockery of Nature for Vraska the Unseen. Those last two, I'll have to buy. I do not have any currently on hand.

My brother plays Daxos the Returned, and a few friends of mine also run a lot of irritating artifacts or enchantments to run up against with this deck (Sword of Feast and Famine)

Profet93 on Playgroup Competiveness

I apologize in advance for this long rant.

I'm currently in between playgroups as I go around LGS's to see the different Meta's, atmospheres and overall feel. Upon entering the new LGS, I play a 3 play game. I'm Captain Sisay, vs. Oloro, Ageless Ascetic and Ghave, Guru of Spores. I quickly play Iona, Shield of Emeria on turn 5, Ghave scoops. I then use Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite and Living Plane to blow up Oloro's lands. He scoops. Had I not blown up his lands, he would have killed me with Aetherflux Reservoir next turn so I don't feel so bad.

Now keep in mind I've only played the deck a few times and it is my most (perhaps 2nd most) competitive deck. Also, I have only played 6 games of commander so far.

New game. I stay as Sisay, vs. Nin, the Pain Artist (previously Ghave) and Oloro, Ageless Ascetic. Oloro says he can kill me off and barely survive. He is hesitant but I insist he does it because I'm curious how he would. He uses Aetherflux Reservoir. I laugh like crazy because I love dying out of nowhere (no, seriously, I love the randomness and craziness that is magic). He then proceeds to lose to the other player. Had he not killed me, I would have blown his lands next turn.

I switch decks because I wanted to try out my Talrand, Sky Summoner for the 1st time. Moreover, Sisay seemed "too competitive." Talrand vs. Nin, the Pain Artist and Daxos the Returned. I try to use my counter magic evenly on both players (which isn't ideal as the blue player can only counter so much and end up with an empty hand) to be fair. I tried to play defensively (just countering, getting drakes and not attacking) but Daxos the Returned decided to exile some stuff of mine and attack me so I fought back with 6 drakes. He gets mad that I'm only attacking him. I tell him that I keep to myself unless someone hits me first. Nevertheless, I decide to not kill him on my next turn and attack Nin, the Pain Artist to be fair yet again. Towards the end, Nin, the Pain Artist had a choice to kill me first and then Daxos the Returned or vice versa.

He kills me off, I don't really care, but I ask why. He says because no one likes their stuff being countered. I kind of understand where he is coming from but it isn't much different than you playing a creature and then I destroy it. He argues for the satisfaction of a spell resolving (and I guess ETB's even though he didn't say it). To me, a counter is a kill spell. I don't mind getting my stuff countered (he was running counters too but never drew one). But apparently people get annoyed and want to kill the blue player first. This is annoying as I love blue, counters and shenanigans.

That LGS is more casual and I thought Talrand was the best choice. I have 4 decks, Captain Sisay (LD/Toolbox) Sisay Deck , Xiahou Dun, the One-Eyed (Infinite combo/Control/Stax), Xiahou DeckGrand Arbiter Augustin IV (Infinite Combo/Control/Stax), GAA4 DeckTalrand, Sky Summoner (Control) Talrand Deck.

I have a couple options...

  1. Return to a different LGS which is competitive (turn 3 - 4 wins consistently)
  2. Create a casual deck that isn't stax, combo, or control and remain at this LGS

I'm more inclined towards option #2 as this LGS is close to my work and convenient. I don't want to spend too much $ on this deck (My other decks cost over 1k each) which will both save me $ and lower the power of the deck. I am just not sure which commander to choose. I want it to be a fun commander that has a decent chance of winning with no infinite combos, has a fair amount of synergy and isn't incredibly difficult to pilot. I take it that I should stay away from blue, my favorite color.

So far, the only thing I thought of is Xenagos, God of Revels. Green ramp is cheap, I already have a small amount of green cards. I can play fatties and smash face. I would also like some form of removal for artifacts, enchantments and creatures.

What are you're guy's thoughts?
