Dovin, Hand of Control Discussion

No problem Zuzur, your deck gave me a challenge so it's the least i could do:)

I thought my deck was finished, but i'm always finding more possible additions.

As for the 2x Dovin, Hand of Control slots, i do think there are cards better suited, when playing against your deck that's one of the cards that never worries me or really disrupts my play style - although i can see it's uses if you were up against a more spell based deck

Thanks for your comment papafranku99 :)

Being a full custom decklist, it changes everytime.

Atm, I am still thinking about the x2 Dovin, Hand of Control slots. I have several ideas behind it, I will test it more and come up with an answer on these slots.

I run a similar style with my Derevi deck, though I use primarily enchantments instead of creatures for one simple reason - Creatures are usually easier to remove. But here's some cards that I'd recommend using if you're going for as much resource denial as possible:

Lands: The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale , Serra's Sanctum , Rishadan Port , Hall of Heliod's Generosity , Yavimaya Hollow , Fabled Passage

Sorceries/Instants: Drain Power , Bant Charm , Tamiyo's Epiphany , Sunder , Armageddon , Flood of Tears , Terminus

Planeswalkers: Teferi, Time Raveler , Teferi, Hero of Dominaria , Estrid, the Masked , Narset, Parter of Veils , Dovin Baan , Dovin, Hand of Control

Creatures: Seedborn Muse , Angus Mackenzie , Lavinia, Azorius Renegade , Sigarda, Host of Herons , Hokori, Dust Drinker , Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker , False Prophet , Baird, Steward of Argive , Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer , Melira, Sylvok Outcast I'd only recommend using Melira if you plan on having Phyrexian Unlife in the deck.

Artifacts: Crawlspace , Norn's Annex , Torpor Orb , Candelabra of Tawnos , Forcefield , Meekstone , Ward of Bones , Gilded Lotus , Thran Dynamo , Everflowing Chalice

Enchantments: Pendrell Mists , Frozen AEther , Blind Obedience , Privileged Position , Greater Auramancy , Back to Basics , Land Equilibrium , Propaganda , War Tax , Collective Restraint , Teferi's Moat , Moat , Humility , Overwhelming Splendor , Leyline of Anticipation , Solemnity , Invoke Prejudice , Mana Reflection , Mechanized Production , Overburden , Rising Waters , Rule of Law , Wilderness Reclamation

Good improvements. But Cloudkin Seer is strictly better then Tome Raider . If you want to try another walker in here Vraska, Swarm's Eminence or Kasmina, Enigmatic Mentor or Dovin, Hand of Control will help you bide your time. Keeper of Fables could get you more card draw. Silverback Shaman is ultra cheap less then 20 cents. Gargos, Vicious Watcher while you have no synergy and comes in at around 50 cents is and 8/7 for 6 mana.

Benthehen333 - Absolutely! Not a problem. Excited to see the "Still Budget Upgrade List" for sure! I'm hoping to branch out and get more fun "Budget" decks after I made my first EDH Deck modeled after a Voltron Kozilek, the Great Distortion . The deck is a little strong for my meta as well, with the exception of two other not budget decks. If you care to see it: Koz, Colorless EDH Deck

To answer your question I looked at The Tax Man Cometh by KayneMarco and I would prefer you didn't by Molesto-the-Egregious as references: Disruptive Student , Vodalian Mage , Disruptive Pitmage , Turn Aside , Approach of the Second Sun , Kasmina, Enigmatic Mentor , Dovin, Hand of Control , God-Pharaoh's Statue , Monastery Siege , War Tax , Lavinia, Azorius Renegade , Daxos of Meletis , Baird, Steward of Argive , Aven Mindcensor , Teyo, the Shieldmage , The Wanderer , Time Wipe , Foresee , Azor's Elocutors , and Marble Diamond are several Non-Land Sub $1 cards I saw in there as well. The list goes on, for sure. I didn't look into it beyond this but any W/U or Colorless card that let's you draw when an opponent draws would be fantastic. Mind's Eye would be a good Sub $5 card I know of, if there were to be upgrades in that deck.

I run Aminatou as my main commander, and i like the idea.

If youre going to run cards like Aura of Silence you might wanna run the rest of the stuff like that, too. Kasmina, Enigmatic Mentor , Dovin, Hand of Control , God-Pharaoh's Statue . The planeswalkers can be flickered for extra value as well.

And i feel Reality Acid is required removal for Aminatou. 3cmc, and ruling says you still control it even when their things are enchanted. So go ahead and flicker the crap out of it and destroy everything they know and love.

Finally, just adding Spark Double and Altar of the Brood is a sneaky wincon, because SD and Aminatou blink each other forever and they mill out.

Theres a ton of different ways to go infinite with various combinations of Felidar Guardian , Panharmonicon , Oath of Teferi , Spark Double ... Shameless plug, you can check out my deck for a listing of alot of them.

Id also recommend the all-powerful Peregrine Drake or the Palinchron if you have money.

I love her as a commander so much and i love seeing other peoples takes and ideas.

Hi Kiyomei,

Very nice deck you got there. Please, allow me to give some input as a fellow cEDH player. First off, I see all stax cards in your deck there is but very few removals. Hence, I kindly would like to share some input on balancing the decks versatility.

I hope this was insightful to you. And no, I am not playing Derevi myself ;) But I do actually play a lot against it.

Cheers, Danda

keevel on U/W infect/control

When you want to mix control and an aggro strategy your best bet is what we call a Tempo deck. You want to slow down your opponent a littlen while speeding yourself up. Otherwise you find yourself slowing yourself down, to also slow them down Law-Rune Enforcer is a good example of you slowing yourself down as much as it slows the opponent, whereas Dovin, Hand of Control supports your tempo advantage.

I like the white splash for Giver of Runes and being in WU would allow you cool stuff like Teferi, Time Raveler (also a tremendous tempo play), it is missing too much of it's aggro side.

It wants Scale Up (note: the creature keeps infect, just gets better stats), it wants Glistener Elf , it wants to protect it's threats with Blossoming Defense . It wants Green. It wants Might of Old Krosa , it wants Mutagenic Growth (even if you do not add green.

Take out the stuff that does not actually help your control or your aggro and are just cute tricks: Grateful Apparition , Law-Rune Enforcer , Priests of Norn , Viral Drake and focus on making cheap threats, making them big fast, getting them through and protecting them.
