Land Tax Discussion

HobbyGamer007 on Nobody has the intention of building a Wall

To clarify, I never said Teyo is the card to go here, just that he's better than misako :) If you want to try him out at all in commander, this is probably the only deck where he's worth mentioning. Yeah in my meta arcedes would never stick for a turn cycle. This deck is easily thwarted if you never let Arcedes, High Alert or Assault Formation stick, so being able to fight through that is a must. If you face many counterspells Autumn's Veil is a great addition here as well. I dislike Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots here since you don't get much for their cost. Ideally this deck goes someting like:

T1 Wall of Runes T2 Fortified Rampart T3 Wall of Denial T4 Arcedes; swing for 17 Damage.

The nice thing about this is that noone is ever gonna remove or counter your walls. You just need to get Arcedes through. Cards like Force of Will Pact of Negation can help here in an extremely counter heavy meta if you want to play arcedes on curve, or you stay back build up to like 30 Damage wich on T7 onwards is often nearly lethal for a player and then play Arcedes for a big swing. Hardly any playgroup will let him stick for long since he also draws a lot of cards, which makes him so good. If you give him hexproof or shroud all you do is force out a sweeper which you don't want to happen at all, so counterspells are clearly the way to go here imho.

Changes I would do right now:

Cut: Masako the Humorless doesn't do enough Fog Bank 2 mana 2/2 flyer doesn't seem so good Skyshroud Claim ramps you when you're done ramping. average cmc of the deck is 2.2 Perimeter Captain cut for Wall of Runes Island Average cmc of the deck is 2.2

On no budget add: Meekstone Covers your defence Land Tax Color Fixing! Rampant Growth Ramp and fixing at the correct time Three Visits Same Force of Will More control

On a Budget add: Slagwurm Armor Might be really good. Will never get removed and 3 mana for +6 seems kinda broken Geist of the Archives Smooth out draws a bit Rampant Growth Fixing and Ramp Meekstone Defense Autumn's Veil Protection/Control

Added Land Tax , Rhystic Study and Phyrexian Altar .

Phyrexian Altar is going to make more of my endless combos easier to get onto the board. Phyrexian Altar + Gravecrawler + Zulaport Cutthroat or Wayward Servant , Vengeful Dead all have the same effect of dealing with all your enemies at once if not interrupted.

Also a fun combo is Phyrexian Altar + Gravecrawler + Grave Pact .

Oreskos Explorer is similar to Boreas Charger if you need more land search, except its ability is activated as soon as Oreskos enters the field.

Land Tax is another good land search, and can be out turn 1 is you have it in hand/first draw. If you really need more mana, Smothering Tithe is really nice and can help you leave lands open for extra available mana.

Single Combat is a fun new boardwipe and can help prevent opponents from rebuilding for an extra turn.

maybe add Land Tax , Fellwar Stone and Knight of the White Orchid for better / more mana fixing.
Furthermore i would cut Vedalken Orrery for Leyline of Anticipation .
Finally, Mystic Remora has never let me down so i would add that aswell!

I would highly recommend Land Tax . I run a Lavinia Deck as well and that card helps you hit land drops early and late game.

You may want to get Land Tax and Smothering Tithe to ramp the deck a little. Playing Boros can be a challenge due to the lack of mana ramp and having to look around for card draw answers, but it is doable.

I like it.

Some ideas - you don't need to do them all but I would suggest doing some -

Gift of Immortality is an amazing card for you as it negates a wipe or spot removal to get rid of you.

False Demise is also worth a look.

Spirit Mantle is too good to pass up as it stops blocks. Unquestioned Authority is also a great option to stop hate on your commander.

Curator's Ward is hexproof - another nice option.

Greater Auramancy is excellent as it protects your enchantments and your creatures. Its very, very solid. Copy this enchantment to essentially make all enchantments untargetable. Please note that this will stop you from attaching further enchantments but hey.

Sphere of Safety gives you some protection without drawing heat from the board.

Hour of Revelation is a great sweeper as sometimes you need to wipe out their hard to hit stuff.

Austere Command is expensive to cast but is able to target the things you need dead.

Land Tax is also a great one to have for EDH as it gets you the lands you need against ramp.

Hi multimedia, thanks for your suggestions. This was the first commander deck I've ever built, kind of like my little baby, haha. I have a few cards on the way for it, Tree of Redemption , Land Tax , Slagwurm Armor and Brave the Sands . I had Saruli Caretaker in the deck previously, took it out for some land search cards to get Rampaging Baloths going. I've previously searched for Wall of Denial at a decent price, but limited availability made me give up. Postage to Australia from the US or Europe is another factor, hahaha. I will keep your suggestions in mind for future acquisitions, as many of them would work very well.

As far as my cut list goes, Fountain of Renewal , Chaos Wand , Deep Freeze , Worldsoul Colossus , Suspicious Bookcase and Guardians of Akrasa are there because they do stuff, but not great stuff if that makes sense? If you have other suggestions on what to cut, I'm all ears!
