Dictate of the Twin Gods Discussion

Conjurer's Closet to flicker Varchild in and out with. Inquisitor's Flail to give Varchild the same effect as Furnace of Rath and Dictate of the Twin Gods.

I would say damage doublers like Dictate of the Twin Gods might also be good in his deck too. Maybe things like Crawlspace to limit the number of attackers? Or something that makes it even tougher to attack you with giant hordes.

Or of course the classic combo of Pariah's Shield and Stuffy Doll

Maybe consider Dictate of the Twin Gods/Furnace of Rath? They're both cheap ways to double the damage from Varchild, and unlike the previously suggested Gratuitous Violence, they affect opponents creatures as well. While that is usually a downside, since most of your opponents creatures can only attack eachother you wont be taking much damage from them. However, you have to be careful with them, and if your playgroup has decks like Xenagos, God of Revels or Saskia the Unyielding they might be more likely to kill you than help you

Avatar of Slaughter, Curse of the Nightly Hunt, Goblin Spymaster, Grand Melee, Rowan Kenrith, and Warmonger Hellkite all force opponents to attack with their Survivors. Even though they can't block or attack you with them, they might sometimes want to keep them back and gang up on you instead. Goblin Spymaster is my favorite here, since it also gives opponents additional tokens to have to attack with. Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs helps make it so opponents dont attack you with their other creatures.

Some takeaways from today's games:

  1. Curse of Opulence is wonderful at influencing combat and helping ramp. A lot of value packed into one red mana. The card has cemented its slot in this deck.

  2. While I never got to actually activate it, Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep was a fantastic option to hold up, as a 5/5 first striker can survive most fights in the early to mid game; it was nice to have the option.

  3. I run too many non-basics for a two-color deck. A late-game From the Ashes neutered any chance I had at winning one of the games.

  4. Drawing Words of Waste felt awful. I didn't want to skip out on the card draw for a Xantcha activation just to make everyone discard a card, and it didn't seem like a good use of 4 mana, either, even with the added loss of 2 life. I can see cutting this immediately for something more impactful.

  5. I'd like to decrease my dependency on creature blockers as rattlesnakes, which will allow me to include something like Bedlam to more readily encourage combat. It improves the usefulness of Virtus the Veiled and Master of Cruelties, too.

  6. Targeted unblockable repeated effects from cards like Key to the City seem like a better long-term goal for keeping Xantcha connecting each turn than to run extra targeted removal. I'd rather save that removal for the actual threats, while enabling Xantcha to continue dealing damage in other means.

  7. Group damage doublers like Dictate of the Twin Gods definitely seem promising in such a world, so I'm likely to give that a try.

Finally, I need to take a hard look at how I actually intend to win. Seems simple and silly to admit, but in the late game, after casting a tutor, I didn't have the confidence in knowing what my ultimate end game needed to be. Maybe I do need to put some combos in after all...

List of cards that might interrest you :

Double your damage : Bitter Feud, Insult // Injury, Inquisitor's Flail, Furnace of Rath, Dictate of the Twin Gods

Protection for you and your creatures (and some boost in power) : Shalai, Voice of Plenty, Vines of Vastwood, Heroic Intervention, Blossoming Defense

Evasion (Unblockable, trample, etc) (Plus boost in power?) : Champion of Lambholt,Whispersilk Cloak, Surestrike Trident, Trailblazer's Boots, Fireshrieker, Rancor, Triumph of the Hordes (Overwhelming Stampede is a cheaper and maybe better option in your deck, since most of your creatures have infect)

Removal : Putrefy

Surprise infect/poison counter (mostly to finish someone : Tainted Strike, Caress of Phyrexia,

Anafenza, the Foremost : I thought it could fit well. Since people don't want poison counter, they won't really care about this creature. You can boost your other creature, little by little and mostly, instead of going to the graveyard, the creatures of your opponent will be exile (depending of your meta, that may be important)

Sorry for commenting excessively again, but I want some help for cutting this to 100. I currently have 39 to cut. Here are some combos I'd like to keep:

Amulet of Vigor + Orb of Dreams (All my stuff enter play untapped, where others are tapped.

Final Fortune + Isochron Scepter + Sundial of the Infinite + Grand Abolisher (Extra Turns w/ protection.)

Dualcaster Mage X Any opposing Instant/Sorcery (Anti-Counterspell card.)

Imperial Recruiter + Recruiter of the Guard + Any P/W creature 2< (Tutor for many kinds of creatures.)

Eldrazi Displacer + Any creature with ETB properties. ((Maybe a Fallacy) Repeating effects over & over.)

Bygone Bishop + 3

Gisela, Blade of Goldnight + Serra's Blessing (Gives the Broken Blade & my other creatures Vigilance.)

Gisela, Blade of Goldnight + Dictate of the Twin Gods + Personal Sanctuary (x2x2 Damage Plus Protection from damage on my turn.)

+

War's Toll + Manabarbs + Sulfuric Vortex + Personal Sanctuary (Opponents are Dealt damage just by a tapping of one land.)

Trinisphere + Sphere of Resistance + Static Orb + Winter Orb + The Immortal Sun + Suppression Field + Thalia, Guardian of Thraben (The Stax Package.)

Anyways, these are just some of what this deck is capable of. Do you want to help on this? I should be doing this myself, but it's like a nail bomb inflicted on a Surgeon's Patient; I dunno where to start. What do you say?

Anyways, cut some stuff, but added more in response. Just got another Damage Doubler (Switching to Dictate of the Twin Gods...). Tried to find some help, but they are busy otherwise. I don't need help with Superfriends right now; my Primary Directive is already stressed enough. I actually found some stuff you'd be surprised in such colors. (Bygone Bishop has Investigate, which can lead to Card Advantage for instance.) I think outside of the Commander, 3 drop creatures seem good here. But I'm trying to get JUST below CMC2. Anyways, enpc, if I were able to do so, & you want to help at all, We'll split the credit evenly. Please respond when you're willing to help. Oh, & for Gisela, Blade of Goldnight needing Vigilance, do you think Serra's Blessing might help?) Thank you if you're able to help... ;)
