Oath of Druids

Oath of Druids


At the beginning of each player's upkeep, that player chooses target player who controls more creatures than he or she does and is his or her opponent. The first player may reveal cards from the top of his or her library until he or she reveals a creature card. If he or she does, that player puts that card onto the battlefield and all other cards revealed this way into his or her graveyard.

Thantis, the Warweaver - similar to others above. Just make sure tutors don't have the combo temptation. Oath of Druids is one of the best cards ever

To preface, chaos decks in general draw a lot of ire, especially when it is chaos for chaos's sake with no direction toward victory. I personally have no issue with the chaos style, though resolving a Warp World or Scrambleverse is definitely a chore haha. Anyway it looks like you aren't going for anything too egregious here, so you should be fine in the eyes of your opponents. Even so, I might describe the deck as "unique/oddball effects" rather than "chaos" just so opponents don't get the wrong idea and try to eliminate you first because they think your goal is Hive Mind + Undying Flames lol.

As far as the general, have you considered Arjun, the Shifting Flame ? He makes it so that every time you cast a spell, you get a new hand. Pretty chaotic if you ask me! You could fill the deck with unusual effects (like you've done here with Jhoira) so that neither you nor your opponents will know whats coming next. Tasigur, the Golden Fang could be an interesting general as well, since the fact that an opponent chooses the card you get makes it both chaotic and interactive. Ruhan of the Fomori and Atla Palani, Nest Tender are pretty chaotic as well.

These cards might interest you: Chaos Wand , Mindmoil , Stolen Strategy , Charmbreaker Devils , Tomorrow, Azami's Familiar , Shared Fate , Telemin Performance , Proteus Staff , Endless Whispers , Infernal Genesis , Bottomless Pit , Thieving Amalgam , Evolutionary Leap , Oath of Druids

Also, things that efficiently cheat for everyone & parallel creature buffs can bite this fellow in the butt. I have done this with Oath of Druids many times, stax makes lots of enemies, let everyone freeplay creatures & stomp this guy (who doesn't want anything to do with banger creatures). Eventually you refine this unusual style, have some fun, & he has to shift to your meta/play a different deck... all this done with actions instead of words.

MurderForBrunch on Oath of Show and Heart! Temur Combo Control

Oh! Right, it is sacrifice. Still, this deck does not have any proper reanimation because it doesn’t have either white or black. The reason it works in Legacy I believe it’s because of the consistency of 60 cards plus the 1v1 nature of the format. Without reanimation Sneak Attack I don’t believe it’s that good in commander.

On the other hand, Divergent Transformations is a really cool card, but as you say it needs tokens, which is a total nombo with Oath of Druids . There’s a different Temur deck with Polymorph and Proteus Staff that super wants that card. That is possibly a variation of this deck that I might try put together. It also looks really fun! :D

Hi SufferFromEDHD! I just checked your list, pretty cool list as well. In this case, red adds wraths and removal mostly. I love Subterranean Tremors and also Etali, Primal Storm which are bonkers! :D

I did think of some of those cards, specially Sneak Attack and Selvala's Stampede being the cheaper ones (this deck does not have a ton of ramp). However, I opted for the dirtbag route, focusing a lot the ways of cheating big creatures and play more tutors. Actually, this deck has a lot of something I love, which is tutoring for the right tutor. Example: you Merchant Scroll into Bring to Light into Hypergenesis . Or you Merchant Scroll into Muddle the Mixture and transmute into Oath of Druids ! :D

That being said, I might still add Stampede, it's a really good card! I don't like that Sneak Attack exiles the creature in multiplayer. And Aminatou's Augury and Tooth and Nail are expesive manawise, but really good. I don't know!

I'm glad you liked the list and thanks a lot for commenting! :D

Cats off the Lawn! - Has undergone some transformations. But surprising spells that have been consistent: Oath of Druids , Earnest Fellowship , Glory anything with shadow, the burst-draw cards Return of the Wildspeaker and others like it have been great. @ one point I packed in a ton of artifact/enchantment hate & that worked well for me.
