Odric, Lunarch Marshal Discussion
3 days ago
For mono-White, here's a couple neat options, bushido_man96's suggestion of Sram, Senior Edificer is solid. Card draw is scarce in mono-White, so having a commander who provides card advantage is invaluable.
Some other options to consider:
Isamaru, Hound of Konda can be surprisingly explosive as a Voltron commander, as you can start swinging for commander damage on turn two. Personally, I find its strategy a bit too straightforward for my taste.
Odric, Lunarch Marshal can be good for a lot of different, interesting creatures.
Eight-and-a-Half-Tails has very interesting abilities and can make for some fun mindgames with your opponent.
If you're looking for a less popular commander, you could try Soraya the Falconer. Unfortunately, mono-White, particularly mono-White birds, are not great alongside Banding. But, if you could make it work, you'd be in the interesting position of using (and explaining) one of Magic's unfairly maligned abilities.

have you tried chandra's ignition? kill everything and make zurgo a lot larger. also you might try Odric, Lunarch Marshal and wrath effects, since you want to always be attacking but your commander can't be killed on your turn. also Worldslayer to make everyone your best friend

Ooh, and Odric, Lunarch Marshal, epic with the Akromas in play.

The core of the deck looks pretty good, but I have a few changes that I would make. For a deck like this you'll want way more ramp. Try to hit 8-10 pieces of ramp, and since your mono color I also recommend the doublers in Caged Sun and Gauntlet of Power. But you should include some combination of things like Burnished Hart, Solemn Simulacrum, Worn Powerstone, Thran Dynamo, Mind Stone Commander's Sphere for the sun titan interaction.
I would cut Codex Shredder, and Sands of Delirium and I'm a maybe on Perpetual Timepiece. You already have altar of dementia which will vastly out perform those cards. If you are interested in self mill Mesmeric Orb is ridiculous but expensive. Memory Jar is also solid in a deck like this, but again probably out of budget. I would also cut Mind's Eye its really only good in decks that don't tap out to play creatures in their main phase.
Mask of Memory is a nice way to get some card draw especially with the fliers. Endless Atlas is a nice way to get some card draw. Since you are running all of the find land cards (which are great) things like Azor's Gateway Flip and Scroll Rack are really good with those. But again those are pricey. Ive been experimenting with Treasure Map Flip for additional card draw...no verdict yet. Oh Thaumatic Compass Flip is sweet, it helps you make land drops and turns into ramp/protection when it flips over.
Id also like to see some additional removal in mono white I like to be at least 5 board wipes. You can pick the ones that best suit your needs. You'll also want Return to Dust and/or Crush Contraband.
I would cut always watching and add Odric, Lunarch Marshal in its place. 1 more mana for a lot more abilities.
hope this helps!

Don’t forget Tajuru Preserver and Selfless Spirit. Odric, Lunarch Marshal would be a solid addition to either Naya commander. I’m assuming you plan on hitting a combo in dropping your deck onto the board? Craterhoof Behemoth and the likes...gotta basically end the game that turn. Platinum Angel will save you from getting mill-killed.

Thanks for your suggestions NV_1980!
Actually i have a Champion of Lambholt laying around and she was in my deck a few times. But i didn't feel like she performed good enough. BUT! i think i will put her back in!
Glen Elendra Archmage was in my considerations too because she seems really powerful in this kind of deck. But she is a bit expensive too.
I am not sure about As Foretold because i am having a lot of creatures with X in their CMC. i think that might backfire some times.
The other cards you suggested are really cool too especially Odric, Lunarch Marshal! I think that card is going to go in my deck really quickly :-D

We feel Odric, Lunarch Marshal and Marton Stromgald would be awesome in this list. Also since your deck is filled to the brim with creatures, we'd think Cathars' Crusade could have some great value to pump everything up.
With kind regards,
Mrs. and Mr. NV_1980

Here are some ways in which you could protect your creatures:
- Heroic Intervention; makes your creatures immune to boardwipes (at least, for a turn);
- Altar of Dementia; since this deck can get your creatures pretty strong, pretty fast, having a card like this alongside makes it rather a foreboding proposition to wipe the board for your opponents. It's not pure protection, but it may persuade people away from a wipe.
- Living Death allows you to recover quickly from a wipe, in case it does land.
- As Foretold is another great way to get things on the board quicker after a board-wipe.
- Glen Elendra Archmage; such a fantastic counter engine since you can basically re-use her again and again if you are able to move +1/+1 counters onto her (to negate her -1/-1 persistence counter). She's a bit expensive to obtain though.
We definitely feel like some of the cheaper-to-cast counterspells in your maybeboard could alleviate some of the worries you have.
By the way, we love the use of Odric, Lunarch Marshal in our Atraxa deck (still needs to be posted on TO) since he grants all of Atraxa's awesome abilities to our attacking- or defending creatures. Also, we like Champion of Lambholt because with all this proliferation around, it becomes easy to create an unblockable army.
We hope any of these ideas help you out a bit. Good luck with the deck and have fun playing it (and MTG overall of course)!
With kind regards,
Mrs. & Mr. NV_1980
