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.)

How about Maelstrom Wanderer for some haste and 2 big spells for free? :)

Also for reanimation I'd recommend Patriarch's Bidding and Skyshroud Claim for ramp, because you have here too many 6 CMC spells even if some of them are Dragons that effectively cost 5 with Ur-Dragon

Chrisnotia on Maelstrom Wanderer: Energy Primer!

Beezy, so how do you avoid keeping players off of your back in your EDH games? I've been looking for a Maelstrom Wanderer deck that was different from his usual styles of play, and the combination of no energy focused EDH decks in my playgroup and the uniqueness of it makes it pretty likely I will build something similar. With the way my group is, some of the intermediate level players, would see the commander and tunnel vision onto me. Is it just a matter of trying to last until you can hit your 'energy turn'?

Regoober Thanks for taking a look and for the suggestions :)

Expropriate is absolutely on my short list of cards to get for the deck. Speaking of which, I should get around to writing up the "maybeboard".

While Plague Wind may be worse than In Garruk's Wake I think it could be better than Supreme Verdict, in this deck at least. I'll have to give it shot.

I like running fist of the suns as some redundancy of the commander. I'd much rather cast that that pay for 7+ after Jodah dies a couple times. But I haven't got a try too many games yet. It may end up a dead card more often than not.

As far as Urabrask the Hidden, he was in the deck at first. I just felt that Maelstrom Wanderer was a more impactful haste enabler and there is only so much room in the deck. And the Vorthos in me likes that the one praetor that is not in the deck is the the called "the hidden"

NixTheThird on Cascade into Legendary Sorcery or ...

Wanted to confirm a rules interaction that I could not find via Google:

Cascade does not get around the "You must control a legendary" rule for casting legendary sorceries or instants, correct? The way I understand it, even though cascade allows you to cast a card without paying its mana cost, you must still meet other requirements.

Example: I have an empty board. I cast Maelstrom Wanderer and cascade ability finds Karn's Temporal Sundering. However, I am not allowed to cast Karn's Temporal Sundering because I have no legendaries on the field and I have wasted that cascade trigger.

Thanks for taking the time to write up a comment!

I prefer the signets to the talisman rocks because the signets can accept any type of mana, so if I have two of the same color I can convert one of them to a different color with a signet. Also, there's only a talisman for each allied color pair, where there's 10 signets.

I see Maelstrom Wanderer a lot in Jodah lists, but I'm not convinced it's that good. I can only cast CMC 7 or less cards off of it, which doesn't include most of my bombs, so more often than not I fear it'll Cascade into a signet or a ramp spell than an actual threat.

While normally a staple in decks including blue, I felt the cantrips were out of place in my list. In the first three turns I'm ideally using all my available mana for ramp, and once I have Jodah online, I can just cast a massive draw spell like Myojin of Seeing Winds, which throws the need for card selection out the window.

Thanks for your feedback and I'd be happy to discuss further if you're interested!

You should probably play the talisman mana rocks. Maybe Maelstrom Wanderer... you should probably stick to and one mana cantrips like Preordain Ponder Opt I think it would be nice to be able to play something until you are able to ramp into Jodah

Adam_Dills: Thanks for the suggestions and the upvote! I hadn't thought about Blazing Archon, but it certainly could work and I'll do some playtesting. Fist of Suns is also probably a good idea. Maelstrom Nexus is a stretch, but mostly because it usually gets me small things. I had Maelstrom Wanderer in here for a while but it never hit big things. Also trying to keep the deck under $400.
