Dosan the Falling Leaf Discussion

Izu_Korasu on Ape commander deck

EDHREC is a solid resource, but it appears your charting new territory with Ape tribal, However while most apes are green, there are some red ones so ....

for R/G id consider Borborygmos or Mina and Denn, Wildborn

but in mono green you get Yeva, Nature's Herald or Dosan the Falling Leaf

but it really depends on how you want the deck to run and what kind of effects you want access to in the command zone to support the deck .

Well, not including the many counterspells in blue like Counterbalance, you could add City of Solitude/Dosan the Falling Leaf or Defense Grid, depending what type you're after. Just thoughts to mull over.

@ Profet93

Many thanks for your suggestions. I will consider to play Academy Rector again as there are some mass removals in my meta such as Toxic Deluge.

As for the other suggestions here are my thoughts on them:

  • Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite: It is too costly for this deck in terms of mana cost and doesn't do much against my meta outside of the combo. I play against tasigur, teferi, storm (though it would hit arcum pretty hard - but then again this deck wins before you could cast elesh).

  • Kamahl, Fist of Krosa: same as elesh

  • Mana Crypt / Sol Ring: This deck mainly uses mana dorks and enchantments to ramp as I seek to hate artifacts as hard as possible with Kataki, War's Wage/Stony Silence/Null Rod ect... Also it would hurt my draw-engine in terms of having two less enchantments available to draw cards with my enchantresses like Argothian Enchantress. Furthermore when you look at above list, you will see that I make it up with 24 ramp cards. I.e. I prefer to play Exploration/Wild Growth/Utopia Sprawl early on to generate further advantage with Serra's Sanctum (which in turn is tutorable with Captain Sisay). Also when considering to play Armageddon, while having Kataki, War's Wage/Stony Silence/Null Rod on the battlefield, any mana artifact becomes quiet useless and you would wish to have any other sort of ramp that breaks parity for you at this moment.

  • Selvala, Heart of the Wilds / Umbral Mantle: as I already play 24 ramp cards, I don't feel like I need any more right now. If I would choose to have more wincon I would rather go for the following ones because they fit more into my enchantment deck: Squirrel Nest + Throne of the God-Pharaoh (Earthcraft is already in the deck). Or I would put back in Monastery Mentor to get infinite token/storm with Earthcraft (note: I play only around 20 creatures and 33 enchantments, which makes this card deadly outside the combo) as described in my game plan section above. But honestly, I think that Paradox Engine and Living Plane are already enough for this deck to win. Usually I either stax everybody so hard that I get a ton of time to assemble my combo pieces, or I can go off with Captain Sisay, getting Dosan the Falling Leaf first and then Paradox Engine to draw my deck and once that happens, there is no way for the table to win as at that point I will get infinite mana and will be able to play my whole deck and to get all relevant cards back with Holistic Wisdom. Even, if for some weird reason, I would not be able to kill everybody, the board would be so staxed after that turn, that nobody would ever be able to cast a spell anytime soon.

  • Helm of Obedience: As I described above I think I don't need more wincons at the moment and if so, I would avoid to use artifacts which require an activation as there are other cards available that give me more synergies.

All in all you pointed out some very good suggestions, which make sense when trying to make as much use of Captain Sisay as possible. But to be fair and honest, Captain Sisay was actually one of the last cards that I changed in this deck because this deck was built around Rhys the Redeemed and used to be an enchantress/combo token deck where you have a big variety of ways to make infinite tokens ect. However, as time passed the deck slowly turned into an artifact, hatebear, stax list but I kept the enchantment core engine running. So, try to look at it this way: Though I play Captain Sisay as commander, I do not seek to win with her, she merely gets me there faster but the true strenght of this deck lies in staxing/hating everybody while keep drawing more hate with the enchantress. In this regard this deck plays pretty much like a storm deck. First play your hate and once you slowed down the table, you get to generate card-advantage that slows everybody down even more, play Captain Sisay and decide whether you can go off, get some ramp or more stax :)

Well that's pretty much it. I think this deck is a new way of playing Captain Sisay and I hope, as a fellow sisay player, you might have some other suggestions (maybe enchantments), that could fit the bill here.

Cheers, Noc

I'm not sure if it belongs in a midrange deck like this but wouldn't Dosan the Falling Leaf be a decent SB choice to be able to bring in for fighting burn and spellslinger decks?

Dosan the Falling Leaf and Soul Conduit. The latter could really start to level the playing field fast.

No worries. Tbh I usually don't get to use blade of selves. If possible I would have Dosan the Falling Leaf out or Conqueror's Flail out on the field before using it so others can't stop what is going to happen. Plus you could use Sage of Hours as an alternative win con for infinite turns.

Trepanation Blade, Whispersilk Cloak are definitely good for a deck like this.

Non-Cat considerations: Linvala, Keeper of Silence, Dosan the Falling Leaf

So one way you could thwart graveyard hate during your turn to prevent interrupting a combo your putting together is Dosan the Falling Leaf. He's cheap, he's useful, and he'll receive a lot of hate.
