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

greyninja on Animar EDH

Animar is crazy color-intensive. You need all the color mana sources you can get!

The main colorless cards to consider are eldrazi and morph creatures; which both go infinite with Animar, Soul of Elements and Cloudstone Curio/Tidespout Tyrant.

I run hydras in my animar Tiny Leaders list. Super fun, especially in a format of cmc 3 or less. The three you mention ZendikariWol are way good. I decided against them in edh in place of creatures with cascade (ie Maelstrom Wanderer) since they're a wombo combo. My only exception currently is Walking Ballista

I notice there's a bit of a control theme here. Phyrexian Ingester is Duplicant's bigger bro, Brutalizer Exarch can either tutor or tuck (I've tucked all opponent's lands b4 it's real mean), and both ulamogs are good at removing threats.

kameenook on cascading into PURE VALUE(most of the time)

In the effort of critiquing, I would imagine Verdant Sun's Avatar isn't very good since it only prevents you from not dying, while it seems your deck profits very well off of killing your opponent as an effective way of not dying. Just in general then I would suggest more fast mana such as Mana Crypt, Mana Vault, Worn Powerstone.

I also think Command Beacon is amazing with Maelstrom Wanderer, as at least when I play a maelstrom deck my favorite thing is to cast it double cascade and hope it dies so that I can cast it again.

Another card I'm just generally a huge fan of is Etherium-Horn Sorcerer, while it doesn't have an ETB ability if you cascade into it it will trigger cascade again allowing you to continue the chain at a lower converted mana cost.

Also don't like Managorger Hydra that much, generally don't like beaters even if they are efficiently costed in commander, maybe Forgotten Ancient would be better, or perhaps more cascade such as Bloodbraid Elf

Oh.. I just figured out. Since you are in those colors. You can also play Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh, Maelstrom Wanderer and Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder. So you can maximize triggers from Kaervek and Vial Smasher :)

Maelstrom Wanderer would have a home here. Cool deck!

If you want a slightly less competitive/expensive version of Animar, may I recommend Maelstrom Wanderer? It's by far my favorite commander deck, and can be built as a combo deck or just a straight-up value engine.

I used to run a, elemental deck, i used Conspiracy at the time, but i guess now we can use Arcane Adaptation, though, i guess all we really need is Ashes of the Fallen for the Horde of Notions ability. That plus Maelstrom Wanderer, too good, ofc a sac engine like Phyrexian Altar would be nice to get the engine started. what amusing is elementals like Thundermare (which has been made a elemental) and Timbermare with like, a Deadeye Navigator, or maybe a Mindslicer and Ashes of the Fallen to control cards in hand. Maybe more control-y than you want. Spike Weaver is for infinite fogs if you got the ashes of the fallen, graveyard hate hurts tho.

TheAmazingSalsa on Basandra and combat step shennanigans

1 month ago

For a while I've been playing a chaos themed Maelstrom Wanderer deck and it kind of sucked the fun out of the game, I enjoy games where everyone is having as much fun as me, but chaos just seemed to crush dreams and hopes (and I didn't even win the game in the end, I would just wait for people to concede).

After a while, I decided that my mistake was that I made everything chaotic, so I'm starting to build a Basandra, Battle Seraph deck, focused entirely on the combat step (such as "all creatures attack if able" followed by cards that penalize attackers/blockers).

I have seen some cards that peak my interest, like War's Toll and Avatar of Slaughter , and I was hoping that someone would give me good suggestions on often forgotten enchantments that have no other place than on a deck that's not focused on winning.

Thanks in advance!
