Temur_Frontier on Ojutai, i tap out your shit dancer.

Kamigawa dragons Keiga, the Tide Star and Yosei, the Morning Star are great on their own in this deck. However, along with them, run Rite of Replication because of how you can combo it with these dragons by targeting one or the other with kicker. For Keiga, this means stealing 5 creatures. For Yosei, this means tapping 25 permanents and skipping up to 5 untap steps spread amongst your opponents, and this effect can stack too; say you only have one opponent and you get this combo off, that opponent can't untap for 5 turns in a row while 25 (basically all) their stuff is tapped, effectively giving you 5 extra turns in a row. And you get to keep your original Yosei or Keiga. And with those dragons on the field, using Rite of Replication to copy, say, Sunscorch Regent 5 times is still pure value given Ojutai's effect. Also, I'd run Cyclonic Rift over those blue "wipes" any day. Sleep is better than Icy Blast. Blind Obedience over Kismet which helps snag all players and is more political. As for counterspells, you have a lot of cheap options with this commander. Counterspell should be a staple for control decks, as leaving up 2 islands is not at all an investment. Silumgar's Scorn to get a second one. Stubborn Denial and Swan Song are great for what they do, and Mystic Confluence and Cryptic Command for great utility. Wouldn't run the Gideon because he doesn't offer much for the deck really. Nevinyrral's Disk should probs get replaced by Hour of Revelation for it will only ever cost 3 white mana in a multiplayer game, and Nevinyrral's gives your opponents too much time to prepare for it while also painting a target on your back. I think those are the main points for now. +1 from me. I'm a sucker for anything Ojutai; I used to run a voltron control deck with Dragonlord Ojutai, and now I run a voltron/control/spell-sling with Taigam, Ojutai Master at Ojutai's Mystification.

Temur_Frontier on Ojutai's Mystification

redace10 and true, Ojutai isn't that much slower if you build him right, but mine was slow because it wasn't optimized mostly because I just didn't want to go straight voltron. Going full on spell-slinger and control, which is the style I want, Taigam is much faster and better at it than Ojutai is. And as much as I love Dragonlord Ojutai, Taigam, Ojutai Master has much more explosive potential, namely with cards like Docent of Perfection  Flip or Storm Herd. Also, you mentioned protection. I already have shroud and totem armor, would you recommend hexproof via Swiftfoot Boots or maybe indestructible via Darksteel Plate?

jubale on Your all time favourite Standard ...

Whirler Rogue! I loved that card, paired it with Willbreaker for some busted turns.
My most popular deck by far was Temur Ascendancy COMBO. Turn 6 draw your deck, destroy everything your opponent control and attack with infinite sized hasty creatures.

But I could challenge any standard deck in the modern era to face down this beast:


Standard* jubale


Green megamorph splash blue, my own innovation, dominated for 2 seasons despite my terrible play skills. It beat everything from Atarka Red (one of the most busted aggro decks ever) to Esper Control to all flavors of Abzan in between.

The game plan was the same against everybody: - Ramp into 5-drops Whisperwood Elemental and Prognostic Sphinx. Once you achieve that, you have unbreakable card advantage and board control.
- Courser of Kruphix provided life and land
- Deathmist Raptor came back over and over
- Den Protector rebought all your spells
- Counter magic was always ready to use because morphs and flash creatures could be played if nothing needs countering).
- And one-sided mass-removal in green: Setessan Tactics. And giant Polukranos, World Eater, who on a good day could eat anything your opponent has.

The game-locking combo was having Sphinx, Whisperwood and Courser. Sphinx would guarantee every turn a free land for Courser, a great manifest for Whisperwood and a good draw off the top. That's 3 cards per turn. Or if there's a problem, you could dig so fast through your deck to find an answer. You could even pull off crazy shenanigans like blocking with a manifested instant, let it die, then flip up a Den Protector and cast it.

And the sideboard was outstanding for the colors:- Clever Impersonator to copy and steal an enemy Dragonlord Silumgar
- Hornet Nest to flood the world with flying deathhtouch.
- Polymorphist's Jest to laugh at even Dragonlord Ojutai or monstrous Fleecemane Lion
- and sometimes, Aspect of Hydra. +10/+10 for 1 mana anybody?

Temur_Frontier on Untapped Potential - Dragonlord Ojutai

2 weeks ago

Yep this is the way to build Dragonlord Ojutai: straight voltron with a dash of control. My first iterations of Dragonlord Ojutai were strong for my weak meta at the time. But the meta got much stronger and faster and my deck wasn't voltron enough and too focused on control; basically really clunky and slow with not enough finishing power. I'm not a fan of straight voltron and what I wanted was a spellslinger control deck, so I switched commanders and now run Taigam, Ojutai Master for the double use of instants and sorceries. Ojutai's Mystification is the name, if you're interested, though it's not finished. It's close just needs to cut several cards down to 100 and I'll be good. Anyways, Dragonlord Ojutai will always hold a good place in my heart because of his lore and the fact that he was my first real EDH deck, and the one I had the longest. Looks like a good deck, so +1 from me.

Maybe sneak in Crux of Fate for one sided sweeper potential. Explosive Vegetation.

Also some utility sweepers like Austere Command or Merciless Eviction

Some dragons I think are great includes as well are, Dragonlord Ojutai, Dragonlord Silumgar, Icefall Regent, and maybe Glorybringer.

Finally maybe Vesuva for the mana base.

Either way sweet build friend

usaDiabetic on The Dragon says.. Ur

Maybe some dragon upgrades like Dragonlord Ojutai and Dragonlord Silumgar?

Some more ramp like Explosive Vegetation and Hour of Promise.

Also maybe Path to Exile or Swords to Plowshares over unlicensed disintegration
