Glistening Oil Discussion

Just like Kalemne, I'm ready to straight murder people with a Voltron commander that's immediately disregarded as boring. Some cards I've thrown into mine so far include
I like what you've done so far, more Vampire tribal than just voltron but all the lifelink seems like it will make her much easier to cast.

I run half of those in my budgetless list, the other half i used to run back when he first got printed and i was on a budget, just speaking from experience howling mine effects often prove to be unproductive cuz your opponents just kill nekusar and get free draws to counterspell or murder him again, oh and i forgot Mindmoil

why was Glistening Oil still in this list? i lol'd when i drew it in playtesting. replaced with Touch of Moonglove because it lowers average CMC further while pushing another infect point through at instant speed. tricks yo.

I was working on a Daxos the Returned deck list. I will try to get it finished up. Of course if other people would like to do it I would appreciate that.
Something I agree with is running Enchantment Creatures. I included every Constellation effect that was any good. Grim Guardian is an example of what I found a good effect to be. It is important to note that Daxos' token creatures are in fact Enchantments as well and trigger the effect. I tried to include any of the good non Constellation Enchantment creatures as well, like Spirit of the Labyrinth.
I would include Anointed Procession. It doubles all of your tokens, doubles your Constellation effects, etc. I also had huge issues finding cards that really fit the theme and were worthwhile.

FOr now I don't think there has been a lot of discussion about Daxos the Returned, so unfortunately we have no decklist available for him ATM, but I still have a few suggestions for you.
If I was to build this deck, I would try to include things like Glistening Oiland Phyresis. You could have fun sacrificing Glistening Oilto cards like Auratog, returning it to your hands to cast it multiple times a turn and stack on exerience counters. From there, you could simply create some huge tokens with your commander, give them infect and swing to take down a player in 1/2 swings.
Luckily for you, W/B has access to good enchantments, enchantment support, good tutors, removal... For a tier 3 deck you are not in a bad spot. For sure, all the black tutors allowed by your budget (Demonic Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, Imperial Seal, Grim Tutorare amongst the best) would be good. More specific tutors like Enlightened Tutor, Idyllic Tutor would be good as well.
You have a lot of enchantment support, and depending on the route you decide to go you might need different enchantments, but on top of my head I would for sure try things like Ghostly Prison, Worship, Phyrexian Arena, Necropotence, Chains of Mephistopheles, Moat, Island Sanctuary, Luminarch Ascension, Sphere of Safety...
For lands, you always have the white version of Gaea's Cradle, Serra's Sanctum. You could also include Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth+ Cabal Coffers, with lots of tutors you could get those reliably and you would never miss mana.
You also have access to enchantment creatures, they would also trigger your exerience counters. Some hatebears also would not be that bad, and I am thinking about Spirit of the Labyrinth.
And also don't forget removal (lots of options so I won't list them all here.)
Good luck and if your decklist seems optimized enough don't be afraid to come back here for a review and improvements!

Thank you for commenting. The great thing about Glistening Oil in this deck is that there isn't any downside or risk to using it on my own creatures. The counters can be taken off by Ammit Eternal and Channeler Initiate by themselves. Noxious Hatchling does it when I cast any other spells, and tokens replace themselves. It gives the creature wither, so if they block they're just gonna give more triggers. If they don't block I have an option to close the game out sooner. In case of a stalled board I can get a Snake/Insect/ +1 life +1 damage each turn.
Crumbling Ashes is literally the worst thing for this deck. I want -1/-1 counters on my creatures, and since it's not a may effect it would kill my Ammits, Hatchlings, and Channelers every turn.
