Kolaghan's Command Discussion

StopShot on Pure Control with Mogis, God ...

@SynergyBuild, I think your standards are a bit too high. Unless you're advocating for Loxodon Smiter any card can succumb to Thoughtseize and counter magic, and Loxodon Smiter to me seems much more fragile in comparison. That said Mogis can still bypass counter magic if you're running Cavern of Souls and it can bypass Thoughtseize if you're running Kolaghan's Command . 4 Cavern might be too much, but I don't think having 1 will ruin the manabase either. Heck it can be a sideboard card for when you're up against a creature-lite blue deck if you need variance.

I love and have been running Vampires for a while:lagotripha's comment is a great way to go, build with those ideas in mind and you've got a fantastic deck to pilot. There are some cards and strategies I'd on to it, to make for different playstyles.

Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet is great, and you can see him do work in many versions of Jund that run him in the sideboard and mainboard. He's just fantastic as he is, but you can certainly build more around him. Stromkirk Noble and Vampire Lacerator are good 1-drops, if you want to go for a wider strategy. Lacerator can be a bit rough sometimes, and is kinda a preference/build choice. Asylum Visitor 's a strong hitter with card draw, and acts a sorta pseudo- Dark Confidant that fits in the tribe. Drana, Liberator of Malakir is also a powerful flying 3 drop, and the built-in first strike and evasion are incredibly useful.

A great utility piece to consider, as well, is Kolaghan's Command . So much choice on that one, it lends itself to quite a variety of situations.

Yeah, I wanted to make a modern-playable card, and also, I mean, 4, color-specific mana is a whole lot.

Vindicate , Lightning Helix , Boros Charm , Kolaghan's Command , were the main bases for the card. Also, Orcs have attack-triggered abilities, and a narrower annihilator effect seemed good. Maybe menace would have been less powerful, but it seemed less interesting.

None of the brews have been quite right, but a first draft never is. The bolas deck is sweet and absolutely stomps any creature deck. Note that it uses the new Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God (it hasn't been added to the site yet).

The new Bolas is especially intriguing because it looks exactly like Teferi, Hero of Dominaria . 5 mana to cast, enters with 4 loyalty, +1 that draws with an upside (the bolas draw is better), and a -3 that removes something (teferi removal is better). The biggest problem is that the BBB casting cost pretty much rules out Cryptic Command in the same deck.

Lately I've been unhappy with red. Lightning Bolt doesn't kill anything from Phoenix, and Anger of the Gods doesn't kill enough anymore. Also Path to Exile is amazing right now. But when playing without red, Snapcaster Mage becomes much worse. And losing Kolaghan's Command makes all of the interactive matchups worse. While Grixis routinely stomps UWx and BGx, Esper has no such luxury.

I need to try out your tweaks for beating phoenix. I know Surgical Extraction is amazing against them, but it's too expensive in paper. After it gets reprinted I'll pick some up.

Interestingly I've never had problems with burn while playing grixis. Every game is close but I seem to win most of the time. But I also haven't played against the new burn lists.

lagotripha, while that does seem like a good spell to help keep priest or pyromancer around, white is really only for Lingering Souls and Secure the Wastes . I'm not sure I want to go too much farther into white card territory. What do you think about Claim / Fame ? Not exactly protection but it is another way to pull things out of the yard like Kolaghan's Command

Thanks for the suggestion! I agree with the meta having quite a bit of removal. It is always recommended to not overextend. In Edgar decks, keeping some creature spells in your hand is easy since you get value out of the tokens.

In a similar train of thought for a solution, I figured that I like to recast creatures to get the Edgar effect. The support cards I play to mitigate board wipes and to help with recursion are:

(Although I prefer to use the following offensively)

And of course in the sideboard, if expecting a removal heavy meta:

Ultimately, I am opting for items that can have utility outside of just board wipe evasion and have more functionality.

ArchonBlue I'm going to try acquire Kolaghan's Command to replace however many 3 drops I need to down the road.

What do you think of this iteration?
