Lanzo493 on Cards That Protect Attackers?

You’ve also got Maze of Ith and Labyrinth of Skophos for lands that can be useful.

Thanks for the feedback. :D

I agree in regards to Torpor Orb. The card is cheap, powerful and syngeristic in my deck – sold.

tanglewire seems awesome. Ordered one immediately.

Walking Ballista i had in the deck before, but whenever i played it, it felt clunky and made me wish it was an Eldrazi instead, but you're probably right about the specific threat elimination.

Voltaic Key – I agree, but i might be short on cards to cut now?

Wayfarer's Bauble – You're right. I might cut the Dreamstone Hedron even. It's clunky and it usually just ends up being an expensive mana rock.

Relic of Progenitus, Scrabbling Claws – Both i enjoyed. I'll switch to Progenitus, just because it seems better in most games.

Crawlspace – I'm curious, too. Obviously a little situational, but willing to test it out.


Akroma's Memorial – You're right. Now that i think about it; a 2cmc Torpor Orb had more impact on games thus far than this thing ever has. It's out.

Thaumatic Compass  Flip – It's just supposed to an additional Maze of Ith, because i found having those up for defense after an Eldrazi tapped is super valuable and i'm also a big fan of protecting others if it serves my own agenda. But aside from that it actually did draw me a couple of Basics in a pinch before.

Taking out another land? Which one? Also: I play Maze of Ith, Eye of Ugin and Hall of the Bandit Lord. So in regards to early game ramp, i kind of only have 37 lands.

Endbringer – agreed. It's just such an underwhelming card. I enjoy my deck theme of either preparing for a big play or making a big play. Endbringer kind of does neither.

In conclusion:

Endbringer and Akroma's Memorial out. tanglewire and Wayfarer's Bauble in.

I'll also try to cut a land and test Crawlspace i guess? Or maybe cut the Dreamstone Hedron instead.

Hi Mrs and Mr. NV_1980

Thanks a lot for your suggestions! I'll firstly reply on the cuts, because those are always the hardest ;)

I have to agree with you on the Kess, Dissident Mage en the Shocker. Both cards are pretty cool but they now I've played this deck a couple of times I can't really say that their presence made a change in the game. Capsize neither, but I find it a too strong mechanism to cut it yet. Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip on the other hand I can't really cut. I mean, come on, it's Nicol Bolas. He's just awesome. He's worth that 1 card slot not fitting 100% to my strategy haha!

I like your thoughts about Teferi's Puzzle Box and Torbran, Thane of Red Fell! I've never even heard of that Dwarf! I'm having a little doubt if his isn't going to be a problem but he'd definitly be awesome on the field! I think I can change those 2 cards for the 2 cuts. I don't really want to go to that milling strategy as I have already have another mill deck and I'm convinced that a little mill doesn't work. It's either full pull mill or not at all, in my opinion. The Wheel and Deal I took out because it happend more often then not that I had a disadvantage of my opponents getting a new hand and I couldn't! I back then changed it for another wheel effect which I think I have enough now. Echo of Eons is another good suggestion. It misses out on the discard effect, but it has the flash back option so I'll reconsider that one. Torment of Hailfire is sick. I completely forgot about that card. I actually think I have it somewhere in my collectionfolder. I definitely have to find it!


The problem in the last couple of games is my manabase. I'm more often than not mana screwed or I can't seem to get the right colors fixed. I've already added 2 Mountains, Nightscape Familiar and a Goblin Electromancer (however this last one could maybe be cut because of the same reason you gave me with Kess, Dissident Mage)..... I play 38 lands (I don't count Maze of Ith in this) and 4 rampspells (3 signets and a Sol Ring). That should be enough, right?!

Anyway, a big thank you for your reply, your help and the eyeopener!

Kind regards, Mat

Argothian Elder as well as Ley Weaver both combo with Maze of Ith, since maze doesn't actually remove the creature from combat.

Reconnaissance is cheap and busted, will help keep Kaalia alive, if you can afford one Maze of Ith is just as important.

I hope I’ve helped out some for your first commander deck. Hopefully you enjoy it and keep playing! EDH is a very fun and interactive format that is always changing! Every game is different! Good luck!

wow... SUPER unique build, never thought i would see this. Well done, though I would add more nonbasic lands like Field of Ruin and Tectonic Edge to deal with cards like Maze of Ith and Labyrinth of Skophos which can potentially fog Virtus. once again, props to you for the unique build =)

TypicalTimmy Show

Boza Show


As for my own suggestion on Hunt, I'm sitting on two versions and would like some feedback on the concept if possible before deciding a final route. I'll note which version will be the main entry until I change my mind or the challenge ends - when is that btw dbpunk?

Mechanic Show

Examples for model 1 Show

At the moment I will not make examples on the second variant.
