Dolmen Gate Discussion

cgomes on Grenzo Mono-Red Aggro-Control

@skochems: The only follow up to casting Apocalypse would be recasting Grenzo, and that's not good enough for multiplayer games. I've tried many different cards that give evasion or protection to our creatures (e.g., Break Through the Line, Dolmen Gate) but decided to remove them because their use is too narrow. Making lots of tokens, particularly thopters, is the way to go. Fireblast is awful--we're playing against multiple opponents that start with 40 life each and you really don't want to set yourself back that much just to deal 4 damage. Pyrokinesis is way, way better.

I mostly have the banner for thematic purposes, that and it's a card later on when I don't need it as a rock anymore.

I might trim a land, but I never want to go under 37 lands, especially without access to G for spell based land ramp. Not having the card draw/sorting of U means I need to hit the lands pretty naturally.

Hatred is there because it amuses me to just one-shot someone out of the blue. Ride Down is just another thematic card. I do like In the Web of War, so I might take another look at that, though the cost is a bit high for what I want to be doing.

Purphoros is just not what I want to be doing. Orcs attack, not rely on gods to do damage. I'm even rethinking Iroas in this vein as well. Though, the granted Menace and Dolmen Gate effect is super nice.

The rest I'm taking into advisement. I've built voltron Zurgo already Assault Suit Zurgo so am actively avoiding things that go down that path too much.

Why Dolmen Gate over Iroas, God of Victory is it the mana cost? I realize iroas is more mana but it brings menace and indestructable to the party?

Have you run into problems with the limited amount of artifact/enchantment removal?

Can you tell how Dolmen Gate plays. Looks nice on in theory, but I not try it in deck yet.

haha I posted too soon. I agree it looks better with everything else in. If your looking for another card to help with a more aggressive strategy, I'd recommend Dolmen Gate. I also agree that Edgar Markov is one of the best Vampire commanders. White is a great color for adding boons to your deck.

How well has Mirror Entity done? It appears on a lot of lists. Is it one of those cards that seems like it would be great but in reality does not perform.

You are the only one I have seen who is playing Taurean Mauler, Cover of Darkness, Dolmen Gate, and Land Tax. Are any of these doing great?

I had considered throwing Dolmen Gate into mine with all the attacling but can't figure out what I'd be willing to take out. But figured you might be able to put it somewhere.

Hey DieKnowMight! It looks like you have a lot of suggestions going on here. I'm no expert on Mardu commanders, but I have a few suggestions!

Magus of the Disk is a cheap wipe that can be brought back by Alesha, as is False Prophet. (He doesn't exile himself, as he is dead.)

Elspeth, Sun's Champion has a wipe on her -2 that replicates the wipe people have been recommending to you.

Dolmen Gate is pretty solid, acting as damage negation similar to Iroas.

Cathars' Crusade acts similar to Gleam of Battle by giving counters. It's considered a commander staple for white, I would suggest picking up a few.

Mother of Runes is another way to protect your commander and can be used offensively to get a free swing in as well!

Stronghold Assassin goes 1 for 1 on creatures with your opponents, worthwhile since you can the creature he sacrifices and him if he dies.

Beetleback Chief is similar to Ponyback Brigade.

Balefire Liege could be useful, but unfortunately, Ashenmoor Liegeand Deathbringer Liege have a power of more than 2.

Oreskos Explorer helps search for lands if you are playing against ramp.

Legion Loyalist gives your tiny guys trample, but more importantly ignores tokens.

Flesh Carver drops a big token after he dies and can sacrifice things.
