Ojutai, Soul of Winter Discussion

Hyperalgialysis on Is this a decent commander?

2 weeks ago

I agree with the above comment, and there are a lot of better commanders. That being said commander is a more fun format, so if you would like to use ojutai do so. Ojutai, Soul of Winter would be nice in the same deck. I would want to focus on ojutai's ability, so I would want a lot of effects giving your creatures vigilance. Brave the Sands Always Watching Akroma's Memorial etc. The next thing would be to make sure combat damage gets in so either things like Steel of the Godhead Aqueous Form and the like. One nice thing is your colors offer a lot of draw and ways to interact with your opponent, so the rest would be how you want the deck to play. If you want to be more control, Cyclonic Rift Rout Austere Command Sphinx's Revelation. You could easily run tokens, this isnt a good commander for it but azorious can do them pretty well. You could also try some niche ideas like an army of flying or just hard to remove creatures, but these are likely to be less effective than control.

All right, I have a couple concerns. Looks at my deck Yidris and his Sky Friends for more stuff.

1) one of the Kindred cycle?

2) literally no noncreature removal.

3) are the gods really necessary?

4) Kavu Lair and Temur Ascendancy.

5) maybe Where Ancients Tread and/or Warstorm Surge.

6) why not Ur as the commander, not his scion?

7) Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius, Numot, the Devastator, O-Kagachi, Vengeful Kami (though he's pretty cool), Ojutai, Soul of Winter, maybe Orator of Ojutai, and Thundermaw Hellkite are all subpar creatures, at least in this deck (or in general, depending).

8) your deck is very surprising; you aren't very proactive (not very active, in fact) in the early game. Then turn 5-7 you're like surprise! I have the biggest shit on the board. That's one of the things I love most about your deck, and you can capitalize on that by getting haste enablers. Dragonlord Kolaghan is a good one, though it physically hurts me to see a creature's ability go totally unused.

Ojutai, Soul of Winter is absolutely goddamn bonkers in this deck. I'd cut the Dragonlord version for him.

Vice versa, bolstering 2 isn't that great. I'd cut Dromoka, the Eternal for Dragonlord Dromoka.

As far as I can tell your only spell that's easier to Fist of Suns cast than hardcast is Hellkite Overlord. I would cut for Somberwald Sage.

Aggravated Assault goes great in this deck, specifically with Savage Ventmaw.

I would second the addition of Prismatic Omen and/or Amulet of Vigor.

Sarkhan the Mad is potentially a crazy good finisher. Just drop him and ult him on a huge board of Dragons.

I'm always running Thunderbreak Regent now since he enabled me to win against a more expensive Tribal Dragon deck...Ojutai, Soul of Winter's abilty triggered ten times - take 30 damage to the face beeyotch!!

Not a fan of Gift of Estates or anything that specifically adds lands to your hand without away to dump them into play like Terrain Generator or Ghirapur Orrery. Gift is doubly awkward because it only gets Plains, and you only have 11. Yeah, you get your nonbasic Plains as well, but if you draw a glut of them early, or get Gift really late, it isn't worth it. You're better off with something like Burnished Hart, Myriad Landscape, Journeyer's Kite, or Thaumatic Compass.

I think you might want some more dragons if you're serious about Ojutai, Soul of Winter. His effect is stellar, but if you can't reliably swing with more than 2 dragons, it's a bit rough.

Shroud is nice, but I don't think Taigam wants it. It's very difficult to protect him from things when you can't target him. The Crystal Shard is a stellar touch, but not great if you have Whispersilk Cloak on. You might be better served with Swiftfoot Boots to get haste with your hexproof. Also a great taste with Taigam’s Strike, Distortion Strike, and Slip Through Space

Valorous Stance is pretty cool, great if you're focusing on just keeping Taigam around. Some other cards that help your team live through boardwipes couldn't hurt much. Eerie Interlude is one of my favorites even if it works better with ETB abilities and doesn't help tokens out at all, poor Monastery Mentor

It's a shame that Kor Haven doesn't help protect Taigam on his way in to slugging someone in the face to rebound all your spells. Speaking of which, Instants/Sorceries that draw you cards might be worth looking at since what's better than drawing X cards? That's right, drawing 2X cards.

Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius vs any of the 5 legendary dragons from Tarkir... Ojutai, Soul of Winter/Silumgar, the Drifting Death/Atarka, World Render/Dromoka, the Eternal/Kolaghan, the Storm's Fury...

I would be curious to know how the Dragon guild leader from Ravinca would fair against any of the future/would-be Dragonlords of Tarkir.

From the Hip... Despite the large following of Niv-Mizzet; I don't think he has what it takes to best any of them 1-on-1 battle to the death.... Anyone think otherwise?

Ojutai, Soul of Winter is most definitely worth it- I lost a game yesterday due to the dragonbird tapping out all of my draconic defenders...hella annoying.

I'd choose Quicksilver Amulet over Cryptic Gateway...like you said already- tapping down dragons is not the best way to play aggro.

TheRedGoat, thanks for those fixing options. I had forgotten about Celestial Dawn and had never heard of Joiner Adept! I'll look into them. In terms of the fate reforged dragons, I believe I'm only missing Silumgar, the Drifting Death and Ojutai, Soul of Winter. I've considered Silumgar as he effectively counts as a removal spell. I'm not sure about Ojutai though. Is 7 mana for a creature that taps things down worth it? I already have more 7-drops than I really want. What are your thoughts on Silumgar and Ojutai?

Etoilebane, I could see Cryptic Gateway being a great tribal card in a "go-wide" strategy. I'm not sure about it in here though. How often will I have two dragons I want to tap down (as opposed to attacking)? Appreciate the suggestion.
