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

I agree with Z4k16, Maelstrom Wanderer is a must. In addition to the Myojin, I would suggest cutting Ghalta, Primal Hunger and add Consecrated Sphinx or another source of significant card draw. I definitely like some of the cards you have in your decklist, but here is mine:

Thanks for the mention! I do like this! Non-black is something I've wanted to build for a while. Definitely use the same commanders; but my plan was mana rocks/dorks and Paradox Engine combos lol

I can see the goodstuff is real here. A lot of fun bangers on the top end so opponents will need to be ready to respond to lots of threats.

With an avg cmc of 5+ are you finding you're able to ramp hard enough to hit all those things in the 6-12cmc range? If you're casting one incremental spell each turn a control player might keep up. Approximately 20% of the deck is ramp, but you have a ton of fatties in here haha ;D

I'd be tempted to run Enlightened Tutor to find Mirari's Wake and the like. You'll find plenty of creature tutors in and . For eldrazi specifically -> Fierce Empath; but there's a lot of others

You are using the colors to their strengths! Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger! If you're looking for another dope 8-drop it's Maelstrom Wanderer.

I also like Aurelia, the Warleader, Xenagos, God of Revels, and Consecrated Sphinx for this deck.

In the end if I made a suggestion it would be to trim some of the fat for tutors. Darksteel Colossus, Ulvenwald Hydra, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, etc. Ppl will hate you out if you play Jin lol

Have fun!

Ok, I would first off ditch Myojin of Seeing Winds and add in Maelstrom Wanderer , I also swapped out rakdos signet for brain freeze - and I am considering swapping It That Betrays for Rise of the Dark Realms / Necromantic Selection / Grave Betrayal

Agreed. If I can get my hands on a copy of Maelstrom Wanderer I'll have to add it to the list!

Nice deck! Maelstrom Wanderer might be cool for this deck.

SirFowler on MagicalHacker - List of All Free Value Cards

3 weeks ago

I'm not sure why you're limiting the definition of free value tbh. The title of the list is 'all' free value spells, yet you are only limiting it to permanents that only interact with other permanents. Doing so lowers the expectations of those who come here to see cards that give you free stuff when there are many more cards that give you free value. All cards with cascade for example, such as Maelstrom Wanderer, Bloodbraid Elf, and/or Etherium-Horn Sorcerer. Not to mention instants/sorceries with rebound such as Recurring Insight. And what about instants/sorceries that put permanents into play like Collected Company or Deploy the Gatewatch. Maybe you should change the title to say free value permanents so people aren't confused. You can do what you want, but it's just a suggestion.

BMHKain Legendary rules regarding planeswalkers have made the deck even better but too many of one walker is still too many.

The competitiveness scale is still buggy, a deck with good tutors and strong payoffs is all you need.

As for wraths low cost and high impact or special status. Planar Collapse, Supreme Verdict, Obliterate and the like. Make the opponents boards burn while your walkers live.

Vegnus Considering it, I have a lot of good grabs.


  1. Gotta Go Fast, drop draw engines, ramp hard

  2. I usually play utility walkers and draw engines early on but never go full threatening. Doubling Season and Rings of Brighthearth stay in hand until its go time. As for counters I usually hold them for combo pieces. I always kill a Genesis Wave, Living Death, Maelstrom Wanderer, or other things that add too much value or break down my walls. Newly is a mindless and savage attack against all The Immortal Sun.
