TheMillKid on [Help Needed] Taigam (Budget) - Token Rebound

7 months ago

Let me start out by saying this might be the most interesting take on Taigam that I have seen!

I think running a few anthem effects (such as Glorious Anthem or Spear of Heliod ) will help make you token army more impactful. Cathars' Crusade is particularly potent, triggering for each token you produce.

You may want to consider cutting Even the Odds , since it has a casting restriction that is not as easily met as some of your other token producers. A few draw spells (even Divination is fine) can help keep you from falling behind on cards.

Happy brewing!

I found some cool things when trying to find human solders. Brave the Elements could save your creatures from some hate, or a free blocking turn. you could also use Cloudshift to flicker Captain of the Watch or Ranger of Eos for extra triggers.

Humans: Increasing Devotion and Gather the Townsfolk

Solders: Raise the Alarm, Timely Reinforcements, Launch the Fleet, Even the Odds, and Martial Coup

MindAblaze, absolutely! Do you already have a gameplan in mind, or would you like suggestions for a deck direction from me?

Because either way, I'm assuming that the idea is to flip Kytheon as soon as possible (turn 3-4) and then spam board wipes after activating his 0 or +1 to protect him or other creatures.

If that's the case, you want two other creatures by turn 3-4 to attack with so that he flips. Those creatures will probably die (this is commander, after all), but a worthy sacrifice to get a flipped Kytheon, I think. Activate his +2, and I think 5 loyalty is a good place to be for turn 3-4.

Those two creatures can be two tokens made via a 2-3 drop (4+ drops are too slow!), and I have put them here for your convenience:

Fourteen is what we need, and fourteen is what we can get.

Going wide in Boros? Soldier tribal? I'll suggest some cards to cut in your current list. Keep in mind these are suggestions and I don't expect you to accept them without thinking (saying regarding the battleshaper particularly; he's more okay than the others).

These cards are generally too small scale to make a difference. You need to be thinking larger scale than this.

There are some other iffy ones but seems like a good start.

At base, I'd look to increase boardwipes a lot. Should have at least four. A fast Boros deck throws threats at the board fast; it should be able to recover from a boardwipe quickly. If someone is actually faster, you can open with a cheap boardwipe on T3-5 and THEN start playing the real threats, letting everyone's Llanowar Elves and Serra Ascendants bite the dust.

Find yourself a Sun Titan my friend!! (And a Commander's Sphere.)

ComboCrazy Well, there is a lot of good generators for turn 2/3, but I'll just list some of the best ones. Gather the Townsfolk, Timely Reinforcements, Even the Odds, Master's Call (Myr!!!), Raise the Alarm, and, my personal preference Promise of Bunrei.

No data for this card yet.
