Maelstrom Wanderer

Legendary Creature — Elemental

Creatures you control have haste.

Cascade, cascade (When you cast this spell, exile cards from the top of your library until you exile a nonland card that costs less. You may cast it without paying its mana cost. Put the exiled cards on the bottom in a random order. Then do it again.)

Maelstrom Wanderer Discussion


4 days ago

Hey, thanks so much! I'lol definitely have to check your list out. I came to this list as more of an alteration/extension of my former Maelstrom Wanderer list - a commander that tends to spew value. While wheel effects are nice to have, I often feel like players wind up "spinning their wheels" rather than accruing much actual value. These colors are so rich, I would feel remiss if I didn't go the value route. Thanks for the vote and interest!

Phaetion on Dreaming on a Budget-<$50 Intet

Araganor: Oh my, that is quite a list. Here's my breakdown:

Those above $3 are too difficult to add for right now, as much as I want to add Maelstrom Wanderer and Indomitable Creativity.

Ancestral Knowledge: The card is even better than I gave it credit for. I'll add it.

Crystal Ball: I'd be more than happy to reuse an old EDH staple of mine (Elixir of Immortality was another one).

Soothsaying: It's good but the price tag means that it's not likely to make it. I'll try but I have no guarantees.

Darksteel Pendant: You're the first person to heap praises on the card. I'll add it.

Orcish Librarian: No thanks.

Sigiled Starfish: Sure.

Insidious Will: This is a sweet counterspell. I might replace Plasm Capture due to its intensive mana cost.

See the Unwritten: Budget Tooth and Nail is nice.

Temporal Aperture: I'll try it out.

Dragon Mage: Sure, this seems good but it might get ugly with Atarka, World Render out. Possible but that's an ugly play that I might run into.

Djinn of Wishes: Always welcome.

Riptide Shapeshifter: This seems a bit slow but I like its implications.

Thank you for all of these suggestions. Any advice on what to remove?

Giving double strike to Ydris is pretty great, since that allows him to deal damage twice and then your spells get multiple instances of cascade (just like Maelstrom Wanderer). So maybe you want to include a couple of cards that provide double strike, such as Psychotic Fury or Fireshrieker.
Shizo, Death's Storehouse is a useful tool: Most of the time it's basically a Swamp, but occasionally it can provide evasion to Ydris.

Artisan of Kozilek is a great way to recur a combo piece or valuable creature that was removed, for cheap or for free.

Why no Maelstrom Wanderer? If it isn't interrupting setting up combos for you, there's just so much value he gives you.

Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre doesn't exile compared to the version you currently have in the decklist, but his annihilator is just crushing. Great to run aside your Kozilek.

iAzire on Superfriends deck, want advice :3

2 weeks ago

I have to say, even though my Superfriends deck is still very much in testing, I believe Five Color is the way to go. There are multiple Commander choices that are good like Sliver Queen to generate chump blockers and my preferred Commander Horde of Notions due to its synergy with Maelstrom Wanderer.

At least to truly optimize Superfriends, you want every Planeswalker available to you. I feel as though as the weakest Planeswalkers, but there are a few that are fairly strong.

Going Four Color should save you some money. I feel is also the weakest color in the Commander format.

Atraxa is probably the better choice due to the colors, and synergy offered for the Superfriends.

Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind + Curiosity is a must have in this deck. Personally, I think Temur is the way to go with this. Riku of Two Reflections, Animar, Soul of Elements, or Maelstrom Wanderer are all excellent choices for a pinger commander.

I'm a huge Timmy, and I absolutely love playing Maelstrom Wanderer, but without infinite combos like Tooth and Nail into Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Zealous Conscripts. It's my favorite deck by far to play, and hasn't been hated out of any tables I've played in so far.

I have a couple of questions about combos previous to my post. What am I missing about Maelstrom Wanderer + Phyrexian Altar + Avenger of Zendikar with 7+ lands that it goes infinite?

Second question is doesn't the Prossh combo only work in commander?
