Oops, I linked one of them twice my bad Eldrazi Conscription

HUFFDADDY on EDH - Annihilator: Kozilek, Butcher of Truth

mahdik, Thanks again for the help. Here's what I've decided to do so far:

Added Clock of Omens over Voltaic Key
Added Metalworker over Eldrazi Conscription
Added Darksteel Plate over Myr Retriever, out of your 3 suggestions Darksteel Plate is best suited for this deck.

Dark Depths is fun but not necessary

I didn't add Cloud Key or Semblance Anvil, because like you said they are not that important.

Mishra's Helix is so awesome, I've loved this card for a long time but also not necessary for this deck.

I like Tower of Fortunes and Well of Knowledge, but I don't know what to take out for them, any ideas?

In your maybebaord you have some tasty cards, see the next few lines:

  • You run a lot of mana rock, you should then definitely consider Clock of Omens, it could give you a lot of free mana. You could then get rid of Doubling Cube or Voltaic Key, which are both great cards on their own (with entire different mechanic), but not on the same level as Clock of Omens (especially for commander in the case of Voltaic Key);
  • In the same vain, you should also play more draw engine to utilize that mana you already have: Tower of Fortunes is one of my favorite for exemple. I know draw engine can be difficult in colorless. If your meta has no infinite-mana combo, or any deck that do similar to yours, I STRONGLY advice you to play Well of Knowledge, it's an incredible card for commander, but it's more casual minded;
  • Metalworker is another all-star, no wonder why it's limited in vintage. You should definitely play it, no way you can skip that.

About the mainboard:

Random cards I would consider:

  • Mishra's Helix is a pretty funny card if you want to play more control, with all that mana you play right now you can literally kill people turn's even before they start it. But that card is really uncommon and eccentric. If you look at my decks you'll see I like to play strange cards XD.

Question:

Overall, great deck, super fun to play robots!

djewell on F*ck You.

2 weeks ago

The reason i say that it's not good as a Voltron commander is because of the text on the card, as well as the rule of how one loses to commander damage. from the MTG comprehensive rules:

    903.14a A player that's been dealt 21 or more **combat damage** by the same commander over the course of the game loses the game. (This is a state-based action. See rule 704.)

"Combat Damage" is the key word.

From the MTG rulings on Saskia found on gatherer:

    11/8/2016 The damage that Saskias ability causes a creature to deal isnt combat damage.

So therein lies the problem, Saskia is no better than the average commander for killing via commander damage. Sorry to rain on that parade :(

I would say, though, that she still puts out a TON of damage and therefore you might be likely to win by just straight damage through her alone. The buffing artifacts are your saving grace there.

HOWEVER, This is still a good deck and can put out a ton of damage! We just need to up the damage output a bit with some more cards.

Dictate of the Twin Gods, Gratuitous Violence and Inquisitor's Flail will capitalize on that damage output as well. Strionic Resonator will do the same OR ALLOW YOU TO CHEAT SASKIA'S EXTRA DAMAGE ABILITY TO SOMEONE ELSE!... or copy the triggered ability on say ... Hydra Omnivore

speaking of fun stuff, Blade of Selves would be great for your Malignus or Hydra Omnivore. Not so much on Saskia unless you fancy killing off your commander due to the legendary rule.

You could also use some more trample in case your hard hitters get blocked. the damage that rolls over more than likely will still do a hefty amount. Archetype of Aggression is always my go-to.

I think you need more target changers in this deck. You have one which blinks Saskia, but otherwise you need to kill her with one of your removals if you want to change target player any time soon. Legion's Initiative might be good for ya. Emancipation Angel or Kor Skyfisher aren't as good.. but at least doesn't send your commander to the command zone like removal would.

now for what you don't need...

Mina and Denn, Wildborn is much better for landfall triggers. If Land Tax is the only reason you have it in there, i think the slot could be filled in better ways. at least you can get out Burgeoning and Exploration when you have 1 mana, actually ramping you to Saskia. I feel like especially since your only card draw is either Land Tax or Phyrexian Arena that you won't see her ability very frequently. Granted you do have card tutors, its probably not a card you are going to want to tutor for anyways.

You mentioned in your omissions tab that you don't want Leonin Abunas in your deck because you would much rather move forward with your deck than worry about lost artifacts. I would counter this by pointing out that you are running more slots with graveyard recovery than you would with that one card. Sun Titan can only return one per turn and only in the late game. Glissa, the Traitor is not terrible.. but taking up a slot. and relies on other creatures entering graveyard. a lot of your removal is exile, so you can't control that trigger very well. also Eternal Witness is good utility, don't take it out but it shows the slots you are using for artifact recovery. slots that could be used to press the attack forward.

Sakura-Tribe Elder is not terrible.. but if you are looking for recurring mana, i'd just as easily put in a Birds of Paradise or Sylvan Caryatid

Silverblade Paladin does indeed give double strike, but is limited to one creature and assumes that it will not be destroyed, i think you can do better than that. the moment you put it out, it's a target. One substitute that comes to mind is Duelist's Heritage which will work not only on Saskia, but also on any of your other hard hitters like Malignus (one hit kill someone) or Hydra Omnivore, striking everyone for massive damage. Not to mention that it's the same mana cost with 1 less white mana symbol and won't be destroyed by your creature board wipe.

Vigor is a very fun card.. and yet.. I imagine never works the way you want it to, but acts more as a deterrent. They probably just won't block. The only real utility I can see in it for you in an actual game is that you can block with Saskia due to her vigilance. Maybe that's reason enough? I dunno, i've not played against or with a vigor yet, so you'd know better there.. just pointing out how I imagine it going down. Pathbreaker Ibex might be a better option for you! that with Malignus is just disgusting.

You have enough card tutor that it might be worth getting rid of Akroma's Memorial and put in Eldrazi Conscription (less chance for repetition of double strike and more chance of damage.. and the annihilator 2 is nice. Not to mention trample so your damage gets through.

I feel that Basilisk Collar is a bit of a dead card in your deck.

AND THAT'S IT! whew. That was a lot! Do me a favor and give me some things to think about! check out my decks, Nana Tana's Getrekt Stew and Stop Hitting Yourself!! Thanks!

MTGApprentice2016 on Daxos The Returned - Budget upgrade

2 weeks ago

The biggest disadvantage Daxos the Returned has is the lack of evasive ability granted to his tokens. So in my mind, this is the place to start upgrading the deck. Sadly, some of the items Im going to mention will be a tad pricy so without knowing your budget, they may be out of range. Akroma's Memorial is a great card that would fit here as the key words are just strong with this card. A cheaper alternative would be Eldrazi Monument. To buff one token, or really any one creature, Eldrazi Conscription is great and synergistic with your commander. A cheaper alternative would be True Conviction which, while not as strong is a good alternative that adds incremental value as you make more tokens with Draxos. In addition to this unlike Eldrazi Conscription it impacts all of your creatures. Another card that does some serious work, Blind Obedience. I have seriously lost games do to it.

If you want to be a bit control-ish you could add Martyr's Bond and Ashnod's Altar which will ramp you some colorless mana and potentially clear the board of threats when used in conjunction. I dont know your feelings on tutors, but Diabolic Tutor, Increasing Ambition and Beseech the Queen are all fairly inexpensive and can help you find the pieces you need. I would also recommend one of the cheaper printings of Swords to Plowshares as it is just a solid piece of removal and can be fairly inexpensive.

Gidgetimer on Clockwork Hydra's Wording; "This isn't ...

2 weeks ago

As Neotrup said you MUST remove a counter from clockwork hydra if able. The "if you do" is not in fact a grammatical oversight. It is a clause so that if there are no counters on the hydra but it is still alive because of Glorious Anthem effects, equipment (Argentum Armor), or auras (Eldrazi Conscription) it will not still deal the damage.

Balinor5 on Big Hairless Monsters...

3 weeks ago

I agree with aeons... Find room for 2 Wastes... to deal with things like Ghost Quarter or the aforementioned Path to Exile. The Eldrazi Conscription is a cool card, but can generally be cut, Eldrazi are big enough on their own.

Also agree that you can cut the big 3 down to 1-ofs, due to their recursion and generally hard to get rid of. You could add Conduit of Ruin in their place to help get them.

Don't forget to upvote your own primer! Not sure if you want any help/suggestions. There are all sorts of fun not top tier ways to play such as Sovereigns of Lost Alara and Eldrazi Conscription, which I believe was standard with Noble Hierarch. Here is my U/W aura spirits deck if you are looking for a more comprehensive description The Ministry of Lost Spirits
