Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker Discussion

seshiro_of_the_orochi on Isamaru, Hound of Konda

Lorewise, it was the pet of Konda, Lord of Eiganjo and his daughter Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker. The season it's a legendary creature is that literally every single rare creature in Kamigawa block was legendary.

Also, wizards kind of started recognizing "legendary" as a drawback around that time. So Isamaru demonstrated that a creature could be bigger than usual because of the drawback the legendary status meant back than (i.e. only one with the name on the battlefield, whenever any controlled a second copy, all of them died as a state-based action).

I like your deck and plan to make one that's similar. Do you plan to update it with the Impetus set of cards like Shiny Impetus? I'm considering going with a set of unblockable cards like Aqueous Form or Spirit Mantle that grant both unblocks let and protection from creatures so they are great blockers as well. My current setup has a large number of pillow fort cards like Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts, Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker, Windborn Muse, No Mercy, Crawlspace, and others that you still have in your deck. Have you found it better to go with just the ones you show as the rest are overkill? I also am running a suite of cards to promote my opponent attacking someone else like Crown of Doom, Gahiji, Honored One, Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, Marisi, Breaker of the Coil, and Duelist's Heritage. It sounds like you have playtested several versions and I'm just starting out. I appreciate all advice you have.

Also, I have the feeling that Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker would feel at home here ;)

Surprisingly few bomb Humans to cheat out in -.

Fireflux Squad: Token polymorph. I'm aware attack triggers won't immediately work with stuff cheated out by Winota.

Moggcatcher: Some more inter-tribal support

Misc CMC 3-: Loyal Retainers, Magus of the Moon, Magus of the Balance, Combat Celebrant

Misc CMC 4+ : Academy Rector, Ranger of Eos, Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker, Dragonscale General, Arena Rector, Aladdin, Zealous Conscripts

Guess you're not up for giving Valduk, Keeper of the Flame the support he needs? I'll also assume Helm of the Host is implicitly in the maybeboard along with Godo

Wait for the board to fill then play Vicious Shadows and then play Blasphemous Act. I love that combo.

Wait for the board to fill then play Phyrexian Scriptures. Next turn play Thrilling Encore.

I love commanders that give you free range to build a deck to however you decide to create it. A good example of this is Queen Marchesa. I built a Queen Marchesa deck with a bunch of deathtouch creatures other dangerous creatures like Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker Ophiomancer and High Priest of Penance. To create a unique pillowfort. Why this kind of pillowfort you ask? Because it's also a planswalker deck with 12 walkers. But that's not all. I also have a plethora of card combos like Protector of the Crown and Shielded by Faith and all the above board wipe combos. And the board wipe combos act like win conditions too.

This is why Queen Marchesa is good. But she gives the monarch. Thats what makes her great. And she has deathtouch and when you dont have the monarch you get deathtouch Assassins that die to Skullclamp or act as good blockers for planswalkers. Creatures with deathtouch work great with Thornbite Staff, Viridian Longbow and Chandra's Ignition. Giving you simple control.


With all that being said. Are their other commanders that you have built around? That has a deck design that seems to be unique? An example of this would be rashmi, eternitites crafter. Rashmi creates no direction to build a deck. A bad example would be Lathliss, Dragon Queen. Clearly you need a dragon tribal. So Lathliss, Dragon Queen gives you a direction to build.


So everyone please share your thoughts and explain what commanders you believe are good for this and share what you did to make it unique.

Thanks for stopping by!

As far as Stolen Strategy and Xantcha, Sleeper Agent are concerned, they were mainly replacements for Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker (because we already run No Mercy) and Aven Mindcensor (which is arguably worth a position somewhere in the deck if you can find one to fill).

My goal with replacing Aven Mindcensor was to reduce the overall stax because my playgroup did not find it fun. Stolen Strategy fit our aikido sub-theme and also functioned as pseudo card draw.

Xantcha, Sleeper Agent adds an interesting layer of politics to any game where it is played. Whenever a player dies from it they almost never complain because they still got a 5/5 body that was fairly easy to remove through board wipes or chump blocking.

Difficult to say without knowing your meta because you are stax heavy. I'll rabble off some thoughts:

  • Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker seems meh
  • Hushbringer might be cut if you run Curio/Aluren because it will use some ETB effects you want
  • Avacyn, Angel of Hope too expensive
  • Dig Through Time doesn't seem the best because it will be too expensive if you get it early and has bad synergy with Rest in Peace
  • Fauna Shaman not a fan of the cost of tutoring (I would add Eladamri's Call instead)
  • Survival of the Fittest same as Fauna Shaman, too much loss of value
  • Captain Sisay is okay if you have super grindy games but not the best
  • Teferi, Hero of Dominaria has some synergy but is weak compared to what you'll be adding
  • Swiftfoot Boots isn't that good, but something like Veil of Summer might be better
  • You could get away with cutting 1 land max if you have to
  • Seedborn Muse is a "win more" card that is too weak by itself
  • Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite too expensive but a meta call for you

  • I have a Chulane deck that is incredibly similar to this with stax/combos if you want to check it out for some card suggestions [Primer] Chulane's Bounce House [cEDH]

    I run a similar style with my Derevi deck, though I use primarily enchantments instead of creatures for one simple reason - Creatures are usually easier to remove. But here's some cards that I'd recommend using if you're going for as much resource denial as possible:

    Lands: The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale , Serra's Sanctum , Rishadan Port , Hall of Heliod's Generosity , Yavimaya Hollow , Fabled Passage

    Sorceries/Instants: Drain Power , Bant Charm , Tamiyo's Epiphany , Sunder , Armageddon , Flood of Tears , Terminus

    Planeswalkers: Teferi, Time Raveler , Teferi, Hero of Dominaria , Estrid, the Masked , Narset, Parter of Veils , Dovin Baan , Dovin, Hand of Control

    Creatures: Seedborn Muse , Angus Mackenzie , Lavinia, Azorius Renegade , Sigarda, Host of Herons , Hokori, Dust Drinker , Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker , False Prophet , Baird, Steward of Argive , Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer , Melira, Sylvok Outcast I'd only recommend using Melira if you plan on having Phyrexian Unlife in the deck.

    Artifacts: Crawlspace , Norn's Annex , Torpor Orb , Candelabra of Tawnos , Forcefield , Meekstone , Ward of Bones , Gilded Lotus , Thran Dynamo , Everflowing Chalice

    Enchantments: Pendrell Mists , Frozen AEther , Blind Obedience , Privileged Position , Greater Auramancy , Back to Basics , Land Equilibrium , Propaganda , War Tax , Collective Restraint , Teferi's Moat , Moat , Humility , Overwhelming Splendor , Leyline of Anticipation , Solemnity , Invoke Prejudice , Mana Reflection , Mechanized Production , Overburden , Rising Waters , Rule of Law , Wilderness Reclamation
