Dictate of the Twin Gods Discussion

Beastmaster Ascension is essential for any deck trying to close out the game through combat damage.

If tribal is your game, Coat of Arms is super effective at pushing for damage. Call for Unity is also pretty good.

Double damage enchantments like Furnace of Rath and Dictate of the Twin Gods are also good.

I'd definitely suggest running Stranglehold or Mindlock Orb as a way to slow down combo decks, as it prevents everyone from fetching for perfect mana, and prevents combo decks from tutoring the pieces they need.

Love the name. But where are the Everlasting Torments and Wound Reflection? The spell base in general struck me as weaker. You should have Blasphemous Act and a few more wipes. And damage doublers like Dictate of the Twin Gods and Furnace of Rath can be double edged but very effective. Painful Quandary embodies this deck. Make every decision painful and you should choke out a win!

So I don't really like Academy Rector here - you've only got one enchantment, which, granted, is a really good one, but if it's removed or already in your hand or you're out of creatures to use with it, Rector becomes a dead draw.

I'd add a few backups options, things like:

Furnace of Rath/Dictate of the Twin Gods which double's Brion's damage.
Angelic Accord which guarantees you an angel every turn you activate Brion, sac'ing the last angel you got.
Boon Reflection, in case you desperately need to survive.
Concerted Effort, to share the lifelink around.
Cradle of Vitality, to very quickly make things HUGE.
Celestial Convergence, to be rude.

precociousapprentice, absolutely! All of them are playtest based. I can't speak for the new cards yet, except in theory.

I dropped Curse of the Nightly Hunt, Goblin Diplomats, Goblin Racketeer, Grenzo, Havoc Raiser, and Maddening Imp because they weren't as impactful as I'd like.

I dropped Pariah's Shield and Helm of Possession because I rarely had tokens I wanted to use up.

I dropped Darksteel Mutation because it's sorcery speed removal in a deck that wants opponents yo attack each other.

I dropped Aegis of the Gods and True Believer because they didnt ever do anything important when the combo players are likely getting pummeled thanks to my helping out mutual opponents.

I dropped Crumbling Sanctuary since it pillow forts my opponents.

I dropped Sun Droplet since it doesn't trigger in a pillow fort, or it doesn't fort and stop me from dying.

I dropped Volrath's Stronghold since it doesn't add colored mana and has an activated ability I rarely needed.

I added Dolmen Gate, Iroas, God of Victory, and Reconnaissance to protect my attacking creatures.

I added Avatar of Slaughter (previously ignored due to cmc) and Season of the Witch to replace my dropped goading cards.

I added Blood Feud, Furnace of Rath, Dictate of the Twin Gods, and Pain Magnification for additional reasons to make people attack, while also making my opponents worse off.

I added Island Sanctuary since I misread initially, thinking it made a Moat effect. No, it only protects you!

I added Thran Dynamo and Tymna the Weaver back in for another ramp card and draw card respectively.

And then I added a Swamp or so other basic to replace Volrath's Stronghold.

thanks for the feedback.

I'll have to test run it between the commanders but I like the easy access to Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa and search up Mirror Entity, pay 2 to make all creatures into 2/2s then boost up after blockers are('nt) declared.

I'll test Dictate of the Twin Gods but the down side it I would get hit for double too...

Gisela, Blade of Goldnight is already in the deck.
