Mageta the Lion Discussion

Been wanting to build a mono-white deck for awhile and while recently we have received very good commanders with the new Heliod and God eternal Oketra I was thinking maybe using an older commander could be more fun and put the deck at a more casual level.

What I was thinking of was using Mageta the Lion to keep a board of indestructible creatures / Gideon planeswalkers to try and overpower my opponents while also running as many cards with flashback or other graveyard uses to try and make his tap ability less of a pain to work with. Any help with this would be appreciated.

Suggestion: Take all the other cards out and put Mageta the Lion in. Ez.

Twilight Shepherd is nice because of all your wraths, but do you have the mana to wrath -> then pay 6 for the Shepherd? (Well reanimation works too)

Urza's Ruinous Blast isn't good enough I think, as it exiles your artifacts and enchantments too.

Field of Souls would be good with True Conviction but also just synergizes with your commander so maybe switch those two?

This whole scenario gives me 4th-grade playground flashbacks.

“I got you with my machine gun that fires nukes!”

“Nuh-uh! I had my super ultra shield on so you can’t get me!”

As for your post, if this manchild of a friend wants the game to go long so that he can get off to his starter-pack green rares, you can go long, too. Because you can draw two cards per turn, Mageta the Lion is a great board wipe plus win-con. The other three cards can be a counterspell, an artifact/enchantment hate card, and possibly a reanimation spell if you want to go deep on the Mageta discard ability

This deck doesn't have boardwipes for people to hate you. Also doesn't have enough BS creatures that survive, which is critical for max hatred. Also, I'm assuming this is 1v1, which significantly decreases the amount of hate. It's cute, but it's WAYYYYYYYY too nice. If you really want people to suffer, I would recommend building around Avacyn, Angel of Hope in EDH for your opponents to hate you and have a "symmetrical" effect each time, or Mageta the Lion if you don't really care about your opponents complaining about your board and are willing to just make the world suffer. For a similarly infuriating deck, I'd recommend Grand Arbiter Augustin IV and Numot, the Devastator stax in which case your opponents just don't play magic instead of getting to not have their stuff matter.

The first thing I would recommend is finding a way to copy your namesake card the turn it's cast. Copies aren't cast, so both will resolve! It's pretty expensive, so having onboard ways are the best. Primal Amulet  Flip is probably the best. If you utilize spell based ramp and tutors, you should be able to flip it. Swarm Intelligence , The Mirari Conjecture could also work.

Since you're not planning on using your hand or lands into the late game, you might as well have onboard tricks that use those resources.

To use your hand, you could play Rix Maadi, Dungeon Palace , Words of Waste , Null Brooch , Restore Balance , Jolrael, Empress of Beasts , Mageta the Lion , Stronghold Machinist , Stronghold Biologist , Greel, Mind Raker , Alexi, Zephyr Mage , Notorious Assassin , Knollspine Invocation , Pyromancy , and Magus of the Balance .

To wreck everyone else's hand Mindslicer , Bottomless Pit , Creeping Dread , Necrogen Mists , and Oppression work.

To destroy lands, you could use Desolation , Destructive Flow , and Mana Vortex .
