King Macar, the Gold-Cursed Discussion

You can do a lot of crazy stuff with King Macar, the Gold-Cursed. Just fill your deck with ways to tap/untap outside of combat.

You also get good ramp because you can run cards that allow you to tap your Gold tokens for mana like Inspiring Statuary. Gold tokens don't need to be tapped when you sacrifice them for mana so you can double up by tapping them for mana then sacrificing for more mana.

As a side note, I generally don't like using infinate combos, and I know there are two in the deck with Duskmantle Guildmage + Mindcrank and Freed from the Real + King Macar, the Gold-Cursed + Phenax, God of Deception . The first is in there in case, for some reason, it's not possible to mill my opponents out (I.E. They have something like Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre and I haven't drawn my graveyard removal). The second is effectively a targeted board wipe and won't win me the game. Since my playgroup is rather cut throat and is playing stuff like sliver decks and mind control decks, this is one of the few infinite combos that I'm fine with. Personally, I think Eater of the Dead and Consuming Aberration are way worse with my commander than King Macar, the Gold-Cursed.

Did I say Ashnod's Altar? I meant Altar of Dementia. Anyways...

That's cool! I've dipped my toes in the Inspired mechanic a little bit with King Macar, the Gold-Cursed, but I never checked Scryfall for all the potential Inspiring creatures. I think Pain Seer is definitely worth a try. Budget Bob is nothing to scoff at. It's cheap, it's a creature and it draws. That's what this deck needs.

Thanks man! Now, that you mention it, I'll put Dark Confidant in the Maybeboard for anyone who has the cash. Awesome stuff!

Demonic Tutor and Vampiric Tutor are must-runs in black, but maybe belong on your "Sideboard" for now. Diabolic Intent is also super good with tokens and might be cheap enough to run outright. Enlightened Tutor has enough targets in your deck also.

Other general bombs: Catastrophe (an incredible wipe in general, often slept upon), Axis of Mortality (wtf why does nobody run this, you should exercise your queenly authority and tell people that their life total now belongs to the crown), Solemn Simulacrum (ramp in non-green, though sadly in the same slot as your gen at 4 mana), Vedalken Orrery (surprise! always good), Exquisite Blood (biiiig time lifegain, can be a ridiculous difference maker)

Nobles: Falkenrath Aristocrat, King Macar, the Gold-Cursed, Torbran, Thane of Red Fell. I dunno though. At least the Aristocrat is a hawt mamma.

Tokens: Anger, Filth (combos huge with anyone playing Urborg, or even just any black deck), Archetype of Aggression (Trample combos really well with Deathtouch, since you only need to deal one damage to the creature to be lethal and the rest of the damage tramples over), Archetype of Finality, Street Riot, Berserkers' Onslaught, Rage Reflection, Brave the Sands (Vigilance also combos really well First Strike + Death Touch, as does being able to block multiple creatures—basically a wall effect like Norn's Annex), Eldrazi Monument (very cool with token generation), Goblin War Drums, Intimidation, Mirror Entity, Nahiri, Storm of Stone (cutie Nahiri!), Radiant Destiny, Silverwing Squadron (token time), Grenzo, Havoc Raiser (Goads, pretty damn good card, seems popular in Marchesa decks), Skullclamp (big time card draw for your 1/1 tokens), Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs (another wall/token generator), Anointed Procession (double tokens!)

Other Royal Shit: Dreadhorde Invasion (creates Armies (fun flavor), tokens, Lifelink potential), Mobilized District (makes Citizen land, big flavor), Giant Killer (removal + Peasant + taps), Sengir Autocrat (SERFS!!), Righteous War (wild flavor, pretty solid evasion, gives your general Protection from Black AND White, could actually be a huge sleeper card), Stronghold Assassin (also an Assassin, obviously)

Powerful Women & Bad Bitches: Imposing Sovereign (also a Noble), Linden, the Steadfast Queen (also a noble), Agent of Masks (also an Advisor + "Aristocrats" staple), Diaochan, Artful Beauty (also an Advisor, could be neat with Hexproof lol), Masako the Humorless (also an Advisor, also fucking savage holy shit look at her), Orzhov Advokist (I know you've got it in the Maybelist, but it's so on-theme and it may or may not be better than Norn's Annex), Teysa Karlov (also an Advisor, great for tokens, you already have her other baller version), Etali, Primal Storm (I dunno, Elder, he's good), Zetalpa, Primal Dawn (same as before, also she's probably female so yeah), Massacre Girl (also an Assassin), Avatar of Woe, Silent Assassin (also a sexy Assassin), Thorn of the Black Rose (also an Assassin, themey, weak though, I suppose), Adriana, Captain of the Guard (wild with wide/tokens), angelic field marshall, Dark Impostor (also an Assassin), Danitha Capashen, Paragon, Stoneforge Mystic (big time with equipments, seriously some formats have called for her to be banned she's such a bad girl) Thalia, Heretic Cathar, Twilight Prophet (woah)

Tax/Bones: Kambal, Consul of Allocation (seriously amazing, most Marchesa decks run it, also an Advisor), Sheoldred, Whispering One, Urabrask the Hidden, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, Pontiff of Blight (biiig beef, Marchesa controls the church), Wound Reflection (serious finisher, should really consider), Dictate of Erebos, Mogis, God of Slaughter, Fate Unraveler, Ankh of Mishra, Polluted Bonds (Ankh of Mishra on steroids, actually pretty broken card overall, probably should strongly consider it)

Multiplayer Shenanigans: Scandalmonger, Warmonger, and Wishmonger (wild times, probably too wild but they can be game finishers in weird ways); Varchild's War-Riders, Assault Suit, Goblin Assassin (also an Assassin), Embereth Skyblazer

Auras/Equipment: Kusari-Gama (super savage with Deathtouch), Helm of the Host (big theme on the flavor text, also a great card in general), Tenza, Godo's Maul, Angelic Destiny, Argentum Armor, Battle Mastery, Blackblade Reforged (a gen-equiping classic), Blessing of Leeches (Instant-speed free regeneration? This is another sleeper card, and it even has an amazing feminie art), Shadowspear, Colossus Hammer (kinda amazing with your gen), Embercleave, Whispersilk Cloak (you know Marches owns one of these), Fireshrieker (beefer)

PhotogenicParasympathetic on Need Card Suggestions for Kalamax, ...

2 months ago

That's not a hurdle - that's an advantage! Step one: Attack with Kalamax. Step two: cast spells!

A large number of spells that you'll want to cast during opponent's turns seems ideal - you'll want to attack (tapping Kalamax), then copy a spell on each of the following turns. Counterspells are probably going to be quite strong, since copying them means you have a huge advantage against other blue decks that might try to counter back. Targeted removal (Lightning Bolt, Beast Within, Krosan Grip, Chaos Warp, Unsummon, Into the Roil, even temporary things like Icy Blast or Crippling Chill) would all be helped as well, and I'd run a lot of them to help defend you while Kalamax is tapped down. And of course, instant-speed card draw like Chemister's Insight, Frantic Search, Momentous Fall, Fact or Fiction etc. will all be at a premium here. Defensive spells like Veil of Summer and Heroic Intervention won't be as strong, but should probably still make the deck to keep Kalamax safe.

If you're looking for non combat ways to tap Kalamax, and ways to untap him freely, I suggest edhrec's page on King Macar, the Gold-Cursed, who is probably one of the better-known "needs to tap/untap to be good" commanders, and though he doesn't share colors, he'll cover a lot of the artifacts that can help your strategy. Vehicles, I imagine, could be a nice way to tap Kalamax at faster-than-instant speed.

Sick deck. Is King Macar, the Gold-Cursed being used with Freed from the Real and Phenax, God of Deception? That's a disgusting combo. Also, doesn't the Undead Alchemist + haste effect only work if you hit creatures? What if an opponent has all noncreature spells in their library?

Below are my initial thoughts. I'm no mill authority, so take my suggestions with a grain of salt. The most important thing to remember when playing commander is to play the way that YOU want to play, not someone else. These are just some cards I might put in if I was piloting Phenax.

You could use more draw. Cards like Windfall and Whispering Madness are excellent sources of both draw and mill. Ponder, Preordain, Chart a Course, Compulsive Research and Consecrated Sphinx are simply solid draw effects. Additionally, Rhystic Study is probably better for our meta than Mystic Remora, I'd say half the decks at our LGS don't play noncreature spells before turn three.

I'm not a huge fan of The Haunt of Hightower. I'd probably play one of these cards in its place: Lord of the Void or Diluvian Primordial.

I think you need more efficient mill effects. Mesmeric Orb, Memory Erosion, Altar of Dementia, Altar of the Brood, Dreamborn Muse and Nemesis of Reason are cheaper and more effective than some of the millers you're playing.

Finally, stronger ramp is needed. I think cards like Scaretiller and Nyx Lotus are too slow and conditional; you want ramp that will immediately take effect. Consider Thran Dynamo, Solemn Simulacrum, Talisman of Dominance and Arcane Signet.

I think if you take some of the cards I've mentioned here and trim down some of the extraneous cards from your deck you can definitely power it up to a seven. Also: I wouldn't remove a ton of cards right away. I've found it's better to make small changes here and there, it's easier for me to see the card's impact on the deck.

Kinda weird that Tymaret was chosen by Erebos seeing as the latter is very anti-Returned (see e.g. Agent of Erebos ). I could see e.g. King Macar, the Gold-Cursed being his Demigod instead. Oh well.
