Grim Guardian Discussion

NV_1980 on Enchantment Crazy Daxos

1 week ago

Daxos is amazing and I like this deck! So, +1 from me! Some questions though:

  • Rest in Peace seems a bit counter-productive considering you're also running Animate Dead, Debtors' Knell, Grave Betrayal. Not saying it's not a useful card; just that whenever it's out, these three cards become pretty useless (and the other way around too).

  • I find a similar contradiction in your use of Humility. This card is absolutely awesome, but not in a deck that largely depends on you being able to use your (cheap) tokens to win the day for you. Also, once it's on the field, cards like Luminarch Ascension and Sigil of the Empty Throne become a bit obsolete.

As for additions, I'd recommend Crystal Chimes (a Replenish that can be re-cast if you have Sun Titan in play), Grim Guardian (for some nice pinging action!) and Flickering Ward (to give yourself some more XP each turn). For more ideas, check out my Daxos deck freely.

Cheers and have fun!

Now that you have more stuff that triggers off of enchantments, I think that it's worth re-suggesting Flickering Ward. It helps protect your hatebears, lets Doomwake Giant repeatedly keep mana dorks and small utility creatures off the table, is a cheap way of getting Daxos triggers, and can combo off with Bomberman + Grim Guardian. If the game goes long for some reason, it may also be able to help a large token creature slip past defenders to attack opponents.

It could possibly replace Serra Ascendant if it turns out that it is too difficult for the deck to keep itself above 30 life.

Buried Alive for Eidolon of Rhetoric, Spirit of the Labyrinth, and Grim Guardian and then Replenishing them would induce many lols. (Agent of Erebos too I suppose)

The salt would flow.

Thoughts on the -1/-1 guy as well? Doomwake Giant? Him + Replenish is a little silly, maybe too jank (probably) but I could see it to wipe dorks and utility creatures. It would wreck Yisan hard for sure.

On a side note Grim Guardian is a cool card for those who haven't looked into it before. It kills the table if it's on the board when you do Worldgorger Dragon combo for one thing. Just something to consider.

It is like a 4 card combo though. Bomberman (2 cards) + Daxos + Underworld Coinsmith/Grim Guardian. Even if one of the cards is your Commander.

Does Grim Guardian mean you just win with Daxos + infinite mana?

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.

I completely missed Auratog. That does have a nice interaction with Glistening Oil.

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.

If you're trying to make Pharika good... Don't. Just don't.

It's the commander not you. She's terrible as a token producer, since she needs to exile your own graveyard to make snakes, and she's terrible as gravehate, since she rewards your opponents with deathtouch blockers.

If you want to make a Nooze combo deck there are plenty of other G/B commanders that actually contribute to the strategy. In fact, I've been saying it's a good combo for Hapetra for a while, and we still don't have a decklist for her. You're welcome to try your hand at that.

(Also that backup combo you have is 100% not viable. Pharika might be a outlet for Food Chain mana, but without Grim Guardian she doesn't do anything. That means this is a 3 card combo with only one of each card in your deck. Never gonna happen. Food chain Tazri works because you only have to find Food Chain and get Eternal Scourge or Misthollow Griffin into exile, and then Tazri grabs the other pieces as you go off. Not having that tutor is a huge barrier for making other Food Chain decks.)
