Depala, Pilot Exemplar Discussion

Skinken on Blue/White Weenie Paradox Engine

This is actually a very good idea overall. There are a couple of things that would likely improve the deck a lot. I dont really like Anointed Procession, since it only really works with the kinda bad token makers. I would cut it and Visionary Augmenter.

Running a combo deck generally makes Cast Out better than Ixalan's Binding, since cycling could prove to be very usefull.

Consider a splash. Blue could give you Opt, Glint-Nest Crane and countermagic to protect your pieces. Red could give you Depala, Pilot Exemplar, which could be awesome because almost all of your creatures are dwarfs. And also Veteran Motorist.

I'd say put in two Fatal Pushes because the meta is very heavy on 2cmc creatures such as Winding Constrictor (Sultai Energy) Longtusk Cub (Temur Energy) and Earthshaker Khenra or Soul-Scar Mage (RDW). Plus It's really good against mirror matchups with this deck. Also, take out the Depala, Pilot Exemplars because you only have 8 other dwavres and only 6 vehicles. I's say replace them with the Pushes and 1 Hazoret the Fervent

You can however, crew a vehicle (such as Sky Skiff which you played earlier) in the precombat main phase after you cast Depala, Pilot Exemplar and pay the remaing 1 colourless mana for the X cost when it becomes tapped.

(just pointing this out as I played a boros vehicles deck and I loved doing this)

There's also the flagbearers: Coalition Flag Coalition Honor Guard Standard Bearer But they don't really have synergy with each other. You might be able to pull some shenanigans if you give a flagbearer hexproof or protection with a changeling out though.

Thelon of Havenwood, Fungal Bloom, Sporesower Thallid, Savage Thallid and Pallid Mycoderm are all listed as saprolings. I don't know if you merged fungus and saproling intentionally, but if you did it might make sense to change saproling tech to saproling/fungus tech.

Ramunap Ruins Hazoret the Fervent Glorybringer Bomat Courier are cards you really must have in any red aggro deck.

Above posters Charging Monstrosaur suggestion is horrible but everything else is alright. Probably run Kari Zev, Skyship Raider instead of Captain Lannery Storm.

If you want to go more midrange then White has an amazing selection of cards there, but for full on Aggro Im not sure what to suggest. Sacred Cat Adorned Pouncer Honored Crop-Captain.

You can also go the full vehicle route. Veteran Motorist Depala, Pilot Exemplar Fleetwheel Cruiser and Heart of Kiran is excellent with Gideon.

I agree with you guys a bit about Admiral Beckett Brass. She shares the problem that Depala, Pilot Exemplar shares in that she's too tied to the mechanics of the set and block she's in to really do anything.

To answer your question about the post.... technically yes... but I wont tell.

You have made Consulate Dreadnought FILTHY!!!!! That alone deserves a +1!!!

It looks like you are using Scrapheap Scrounger just as an attacker with limited self recursion I think Depala, Pilot Exemplar would be so much more beneficial! She would pump up everything except the colossus which, I think, is easily worth the -1 attack +1 cmc.

I have been wanting to build my fourth commander deck but I cant choose between vehicles and dwarfs or throwing large creatures. So I have decided to see if you can help me decide which deck to put time and effort into designing and building. Just vote D for Depala, Pilot Exemplar or B for Brion Stoutarm.
