Overwhelming Splendor Discussion

ZendikariWol on Marchesa-sama

Saw your comment in the deck advertiser. It did not fall on deaf ears.

This seems like a fun base. So here are a couple ways to make it fierce.

1) 2011 Vows- Vow of Lightning, Vow of Duty, Vow of Malice. All help "take down" your opponents' biggest threats.

2) Curses- more misdirection could be Curse of Vitality or Curse of the Forsaken. Overwhelming Splendor might be an okay game ender, and a lot of other curses are fun and worth checking out, but I'm not gonna bother listing all of them here. Look them up on the gatherer.

3) Join Forces and Tempting Offers- Tempt with Immortality, Tempt with Vengeance, Mana-Charged Dragon, and Alliance of Arms could be really fun. Giving people things makes them like you.

Also a fun idea: Blazing Archon. Neither competitive nor hard to remove, but if your opponent doesn't have the stuff, it is the worst/best.

Reflector Mage and Overwhelming Splendor are good options, but for the truly daring, I recommend Mind's Dilation, Shared Fate, and Knowledge Pool. For something even more audacious, give Timesifter a try.

Yeah, I've been actually been experimenting with overwhelming Splendor . Another person in my playgroup happened to have one, and I snatched it up. As of now, I'm experimenting with how it would do, but I definitely have seen it work. I can bridge it in, and I can recur it with Emeria Shepherd. It's a card I should really include. As for the Paradox Engine I've found that Boros doesn't really get enough mana fast enough to benefit. Sure, I can cast Lightning Helix 4 times, but otherwise, it feels like it's a bit useless compared to some other cards. I'd rather make use of my combat combo, rather than using the engine to win. Untapping my creatures is definitely a plus, though. I'd rather just run Brave the Sands instead. Cheaper, and allows my commander to block more creatures too!

Consider adding Paradox Engine. It helps with stuff like untapping the pile of creatures that just attacked so you can block with them. Also helps cause it instantly untaps Isochron Scepter after you use it. So you can use multiple times in one turn as long as you can keep paying 2 mana. It can also untap Planar Bridge... as long as you can pay another 8 mana... Completely different topic now, but PLEASE add Overwhelming Splendor. As long as you have Elesh Norn on board, it instantly wraths the board of whoever you put it on.

Overwhelming Splendor? It's expensive, but works well with Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite.

Anointed Procession could also do some heavy lifting here.

ZendikariWol on Daxos is Okay

Well since Daxos' tokens are GIGANTIC, Lightmine Field could be pretty awesome. Since this deck seems relatively casual, Overwhelming Splendor may also make the cut. If your opponent is playing mono-red or mono-black or red-black it just destroys their game. If you wanna go even further into spite mode, making it a curse deck with Curse of Misfortunes.

Blo on Need Help Picking a Commander ...

A friend of mine runs Ertai, the Corrupted as a witch/curses tribal, includes fun stuff such as Accursed Witch  Flip and is good enough for a casual table. Gives acces to the best curses imo, most notable Overwhelming Splendor and Curse of Echoes to keep both agro and control in check. I feel like this is the colour package you want, but you could consider making a more staxy BW deck with Daxos the Returned.
Good luck :)

After plenty of testing, I've decided that Legion's Landing  Flip was the best choice for a 1 drop. I've also dropped Trove of Temptation and Overwhelming Splendor in favor of dino finishers. Ghalta, Primal Hunger and Zacama, Primal Calamity were what i settled on, and Carnage Tyrant remains in the sideboard though also fills that same spot as a finisher.
