Wow. This is the most solid Xiahou Dun Deck I have even seen. I see you decided to build yours in the competitive route. Nice! I built my deck The Descent Into Darkness as a 75% deck but your's is my ultimate dream (should I ever want to do competitive)

It's kind of hard to suggest anything when the deck is already so fine tuned. Maybe an Ugin, the Spirit Dragon, Karn Liberated, Nevinyrral's Disk or Oblivion Stone for enchantment + artifact removal.

Bought my playset of Karn Liberated at $40 each, price has doubled. Need to sell them before Wizards reads this article and decides to reprint Karn.

And YES to Wizards needing to decide what they want to do with these sets. As someone who doesn't draft, draft-based sets don't have much value to me, and I know the price of entering modern isn't as bad in the past, but many more players would be into it if Wizards had focused more on needed reprints.

Like it says. I have a Foil FTV Jace, the Mind Sculptor and a LP Foil NPH Karn Liberated. Asking $100 each. Pics available on request, no trades please. These are cross-posted, and need to be sold by tomorrow morning or I'm taking them to a shop, so act quickly! Thanks much!

Change commander to Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger. He costs less for one, and when he attacks the opponent exiles a 5th of their deck.

Eldrazi Conscription with the right ramp you can attach to Ulamog or Kozilek, preferably Ulamog to get annihilator 4 and annihilator 2 from Eldrazi Conscription (I hope that's how it works) or ceaseless hunger to ruin enemy plans.

Maybe get Ugin, the Spirit Dragon as he's colorless and can be a huge nuisance to the enemy, especially his -X.

Blightsteel Colossus with Whispersilk Cloak, instant win right there. And Swiftfoot Boots if needed. (Minimum 15 mana if Blightsteel Colossus isn't on the battlefield yet)

Get both Kozileks in there, and for a casual format with friends get Emrakul, the Aeons Torn to make your friends hate you.

Either Karn could work as well. (More so Karn Liberated)

In conclusion, change commander, develop new strategy, and be sure to- OH, and Quietus Spike. My friend uses it all the time in his commander deck, and he ALWAYS gets it in every starting hand, without stacking. Attach that onto Eldrazi Mimic on early turns to wipe your enemy's health. Prioritize lower mana cost ramp like Sol Ring, and as a joke for casual play, Black Lotus, Mox Gems (Mox Lotus especially), and obviously, Saute, because we all like some roasted hobgoblin

This deck seems solid. +1 from me. You want to win through combo, but I feel that there should be some sort of back up plan in case your pieces get exiled/destroyed before you are able to use them. The more often people will vs your deck, the better they will be able to deal with your combo. As such here are a few suggestions...

Imp's Mischief - Extremely useful to protect important pieces and can stop a counterspell, very good utility. Speaking of utility....

Mirage Mirror - Very useful utility (or another coffers)

Vesuva - See above

Thespian's Stage - See above

Aside from Spine, I don't see any way for you to deal with artifacts and enchantments. Some useful inclusions might be.... Ugin, the Spirit Dragon, Karn Liberated, Nevinyrral's Disk, Oblivion Stone, and more.

You could also add a soft lock in the form of Bitterblossom/reassembling skeleton/Trading Post + Contamination. Bitter blossom helps against fliers, and trading post allows you to reuse the spine of ish shah. Moreover, the spine allows for artifact recursion, chump blocking (skull clamp fodder), life gain (when really low life with Necro) and more.

If you want some suggestions of what to take out or just more suggestions, let me know!

Most other Tron decks play Karn Liberated, its a very powerful card, I would suggest some amount. Otherwise the deck looks sweet, I dont care for Tron but this looks fun to play.

So, play Tron ramp, and then go off with multiple Karn Liberated or Ugin, the Spirit Dragon. Seems fair and balanced.
