skoobysnackz - I really like that idea of Tolaria West and will begin testing it. Could also search up a Celestial Colonnade for a wincon, or Engineered Explosives for removal. Blessed Alliance is great in this list; added removal, life gain, and of course a Dragonlord Ojutai saver if we don't have Minamo, School at Water's Edge or counterspell.

Have you considered Tolaria West to help search for Minamo, School at Water's Edge or Eiganjo Castle. Love the deck, love Ojutai! Got to say I didn't think of using Blessed Alliance to save Dragonlord Ojutai, I'll have to add a couple in my Esper dragon deck.

I have looked at Minamo, School at Water's Edge, but its a little high priced for what it does in this deck.. there are a lot of different cards that do the same thing and cost far less.

I do like the idea of Arena of the Ancients though.. might have to put that on a short list.I desperately want to rebuild this deck, just haven't gotten around to it.

Freed from the Real is very nice. I have come to realize that having card that i can also throw on my opponents creatures would be handy as well.

Thanks for the ideas.

I only ran the deck for about a month before taking it apart because of the crappy game states it generated, but if it works for you, cool.

Arena of the Ancients just screwed over some decks when I played Merieke and didn't do a thing to hurt me.

Minamo, School at Water's Edge is another untap effect and it's baked into a land which is great.

Generally white has the best legendary support:Day of Destiny/Thalia's Lancers/Kitsune Healer/Yomiji, Who Bars the Way followed by green with Reki, the History of Kamigawa/Time of Need

There is also a of legendary lands you could consider running as they are usually better than a basic of that color.

White: Eiganjo Castle

Blue: Minamo, School at Water's Edge

Black: Shizo, Death's Storehouse

Red: Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep

Green: Okina, Temple to the Grandfathers

Phaetion Oh nice! Yeah the vigilance part makes him super dangerous. That's why something like Vow of Duty is so potent with Ojutai. He simultaneously becomes a 3 turn clock for commander damage, can't be targeted, and blocks a lot of decent sized beaters. I wish I had a Minamo, School at Water's Edge, but it's just too pricy. Thats what Fatestitcher is for.

I used to play Ojutai once (I turned it into Jeskai and never looked back), and I can tell you that you really need vigilance.

Heliod, God of the Sun, Ring of Thune, Always Watching , Brave the Sands, and more all grant Ojutai vigilance, so he constantly has hexproof. Minamo, School at Water's Edge also allows you to untap Ojutai if you can't give him vigilance (assuming you have the budget for it).

Feel free to check out my old deck, Cojutron, for more ideas.

Other cards to maybe think about: Topplegeist, Dismember, Kira, Great Glass-Spinner, Mutavault, Minamo, School at Water's Edge.

Hunted Phantasm can be fun in some situations. And even though it's not a spirit, Judge's Familiar is sometimes useful; some Legacy decks use it alongside Mausoleum Wanderer.

Phantasmal Image also works well with Drogskol Captain, since the Image will have hexproof.

Tectonic Edge is a good sideboard card if you end up against Tron decks.
