Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker Discussion

Redace878 on Sultai Proliferation Help

1 week ago

I know this would be a big change, but you might want to go Bant rather than Sultai. WHite gives you things like Gideon's Avenger, Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker, Abzan Battle Priest, Abzan Falconer, Cathars' Crusade Juniper Order Ranger, and a ton more.

For your deck I would reccomend Deepglow Skate, Prime Speaker Zegana, maybe Sage of Hours, and Kalonian Hydra.

PlattBonnay, during my brainstorm I considered a partner pair of Ravos, Soultender and either Silas Renn, Seeker Adept or Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker. Ravos, Soultender and Silas Renn, Seeker Adept where a real contender for the commander. Ravos would be good because I can get creatures back, but I feel like Silas Renn is more for an artifact deck. I like Oloro, Ageless Ascetic because he can just sit in the command zone and gain me life.

However, now that you bring it up and I've thought about it Ravos, Soultender and Silas Renn, Seeker Adept might be a better pair for my commander than Oloro, Ageless Ascetic.

Thanks for the feedback! I really appreciate it

Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker, Vial Smasher the Fierce, and possibly some other partner commanders don't have a price listed. Also, many fuse cards and double cards (Wear / Tear for example) don't have prices.

CHANGELOG 29.05.17

Major overhaul to account for finalized archetypes.














Note: With Welder and Daretti in the picture, I think its worth reconsidering whether we want Spine of Ish Sah. Its just pure value at that point (still slow to reduce opponents board presence, but you get your artifacts directly to the battlefield)



A few thoughts:

If we want to include Eldrazi Displacer, then I think we have to keep the painlands, and should probably include some other colorless utility lands as well. I would be okay to lose some of the tap for any color lands as well as the artefact lands for this purpose. Its also possible that the Displacer is also just too good, in which case we can add the trilands over the painlands to give Simic Domain a bit more oomph.

Speaking of: Im not familiar with the enablers for Domain, so Im gonna be relying on you a bit to help flesh out the archetype. I look forward to your suggestions!

Anyways, let me know what you think about cuts/additions and I will make the changes. After that, we should probably just switch to cubetutor to get a better idea of where we are with each archetype.


Noctem on [List - Multiplayer] EDH Generals by Tier

a friend of mine is attempting to create an esper blink deck. He's looking at Ravos, Soultender + Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker for the commander slot. Would there be a better commander for this strategy out there and/or an example deck amongst this awesome list I could point him to?

Gleeock on Ishai Voltron Prototype

Looks pretty good, I have a Sram deck with fairly similar counts on voltron + lands & it tends to beat face consistently. Your's is a little different in that you utilize 2x commanders. That being said, I see a couple of reasons for KEEPING Reyhan, Last of the Abzan

    1. GREEN color identity, those low cost green hexproof/shroud auras are reason enough to keep Reyhan - In fact I'd think about more due to you having a self-growing commander that isn't quite so screwed by shroud: Sexy BUDGET green aura to think about - Aspect of Mongoose , Canopy Cover , and CURSES!! Bear Umbra isn't budget but it sure smacks people. Pollenbright Wings can suddenly make you swing/block wide & is ridiculous with all that double strike.
    1. You use so much shroud so it is nice to have a secondary equip option, unfortunately in Sram I actually had to PULL Lightning Greaves due to several games where I played it early for protection but never found myself drawing in to a new equip option; fortunately for you, you have a 2nd option readily available in Reyhan if Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker is shrouded & blocked from further equip/targeting (nifty bonus that his innate ability lets him continue to grow)

Other things I think I noticed/possible suggestions (trying to stay on budget)

    1. Vanishing - SERIOUSLY CAREFULLY READ THE RULINGS ON HOW PHASING WORKS!!!!!!!!! - I have seen this card attached to Zur wreaking MASSIVE havoc, it is by far more damaging than both indestructible & hexproof combined (as long as you have 2 blue mana open (the only downside for you is if you phase out (Ishai - I don't think his ability makes him grow... but still very strong) Seems mostly superior to Mistmeadow Witch
    1. Sigarda's Aid maybe?
    1. Trepanation Blade can surprise people
    1. Sword of the Animist a little $$ right now for some reason :(
    1. Grappling Hook I know the cmc is steep but I have surprised quite a few people by using that secondary ability
    1. Mask of Avacyn due to the importance of hexproof in your deck & the current $$ of Champion's Helm
    1. Argentum Armor maybe a bit steep $$ or cmcwise
    1. I would think about taking out Blade of Selves although it is cool I THINK duplicating your legendary creatures would be a dead effect seeing as how those legendary duplicates would be instantly erased (maybe you have it for some deathtrigger combo with Reyhan?)
    1. Banshee's Blade or because

Really neat deck, I'm a little jealous of some of the color combos & other stuff you utilize that Sram cannot. Curious as to how it would square off against Sram voltron.. probably a 50/50 FAST game type of situation. Also, would depend heavily on the types of mana base both decks were drawing in to.

You'll probably hate me for saying this, but I would suggest getting rid of Reyhan, Last of the Abzan and making Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker your only commander for consistency.

WhiteWeasel on Building my first Voltron!

1 month ago

Given that I'm very fond of my newest commander Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker, and how quickly they can get out of control, I was brainstorming an idea to do a deck that revolves around him involving some of the cards I already own and the stuff I can order (on a roughly $30 budget).

So far this is what I have came up with: Ishai Voltron Prototype. And I'd like to know what you think, or rather if this particular setup works/gets the job done. Since....

Sadly, If I do order the cards I need to complete this deck, I will be maxed on my spending for my hobby for the next few weeks. So unfortunately, that means any suggestions are going to have to cost about as much as whatever it replaces. I'd even argue I'm slightly over budget, so no exceptions, even for genuine goodies like Darksteel Plate or Avacyn, Angel of Hope.
