Palladia-Mors, the Ruiner Discussion
1 week ago
Hey, nice budget version of Atla.
You have three of the best cards with Atla: Mirror Entity, Skullclamp and Goblin Bombardment. Eladamri's Call, Open the Armory and Idyllic Tutor are tutors for one of these cards. Crop Rotation can tutor for High Market or Opal Palace. Palace is actually an important card with Atla because if you cast her with Palace then she gets a +1/+1 counter. Atla having a counter means she doesn't die when you activate Mirror Entity for zero turning all creatures you control into 0/0 Eggs. This is how you can take real advantage of Entity.
Good luck with your deck.

Oh, hello! Sorry I didn't comment earlier. Well, thanks. I suppose the Defender Tribe idea was the better one all this time? I was looking for some more diversity on the effects, but maybe I was wrong after this. Appreciate the advice though! Oddly, I'm not restricted to "Off-Color" stuff also; but a WIP Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge deck of mine doesn't focus of cheap to cast Instants or Sorceries; just the very best in her colors that although Expensive to Hardcast, really are incredible in this case.
But, yeah. You definitely are onto something, but I'll need to revise some of my Older Stuff for recent memory (Core Set 2021/JUMPSTART) for now.
Oh, & almost forgot about the Budget of mine. Get ready. Even though I do make some exceptions to the rule, Original Dual Lands are usually off the table. Fetchlands like Scalding Tarn Are extremely price hungry, but Khans of Tarkir Fetchland Reprints are just fine. Gaea's Cradle was used several times, but I'm not putting another in a future deck list again. Nearly anything not reprinted from Portal as a Whole, Legends, even Arabian Nights are all out; Why would I fork over $1000+ on anything?
What I'm trying to convey is that the budget isn't exactly upon the deck as a whole, but on the individual cards. Usually ~$100 is the average threshold each. Hope this helps. :)
Oh, & one last thing before I have to put the rails back on topic. Besides Dragon Tribal, Auras, or even Equipment, how would you build a Palladia-Mors, the Ruiner deck? I'll get this back on topic after.
& thanks for the advice, Sultai_Sir! I'll see what I can do about it. :)

Hey, nice budget version of Scion.
Open the Armory can help as it's a budget tutor to get a protection equipment or aura. Memory's Journey lets you choose any three Dragons in your graveyard and put them back into your library to then become those Dragons again with Scion. It's also some protection at instant speed from having Dragons in your graveyard being exiled by an opponent. Can do this twice because Journey has flashback.
Faeburrow Elder can tap for two mana (green and white), but if you have other colored permanents on the battlefield then it can tap for that color of mana also. With Scion on the battlefield it can tap for five mana (one of each color). Paradise Druid is a two drop who can tap for any color of mana and it has hexproof protection as long as it's not tapped.
For six colorless mana Cascading Cataracts can cast Scion. It helps a lot with a budget manabase when you don't have ideal color fixing. Exotic Orchard is another budget Rainbow land which is excellent in mutiplayer Commander when your opponents will have lands on the battlefield that can make many different colors. Unclaimed Territory is Dragon tribal Rainbow land. It's worth adding Crop Rotation since it can tutor for a Rainbow land especially if you add Cataracts.
When Savage Ventmaw attacks it makes six mana and you can use this mana to activate Scion three times before the end of combat. Dragon Tyrant is another win condition Dragon. After pumping with Moldensteel turn Scion into Tyrant and kill with double strike Commander damage. Palladia-Mors, the Ruiner is another Dragon who has hexproof.
Some cards to consider cutting:
- Transguild Promenade
- Wind-Scarred Crag
- Bloodfell Caves
- Blossoming Sands
- Navigator's Compass
- Oasis Ritualist
- Quirion Elves
- Strider Harness
- Shielding Plax
- Mage's Guile
Good luck with your deck.

Since I'm/we're not allowed to Bump, I'll just get to the primary topic,
I'll just remove some unneeded elements of the OP Post in case anyone still cares; although I do ponder if My third color is ; but that's for another time.
I'll just ask again: Do you think the Direction I'm going for this is a good idea or not? & if the latter is so, what's the better solution than Low Toughness, but Awesome effects?
Though I really do want to make a Palladia-Mors, the Ruiner, as Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire has a lot of options for Deck Design. That means I'll want some Non-Dragon Tribal Options for Nicol Bolas' Sister of all things as she's the Black Sheep of the Elder Dragons, & I want to see to it she has a use. (Yes, Palladia-Mors is female, like I thought Mothra was a male at first. What localization of a Mothra Film was I watching...? DX)
Wait, we're not allowed to Bump? I still ponder as to why, & if otherwise, why was I following such conduct in the first place? >_<

Arcades, the Strategist? NOPE.
Doran, the Siege Tower? WRONG.
When it comes to Toughness Matters CMDRs, Pramikon, Sky Rampart would be literal Wall Tribe Lord incarnate that's the closest to Tribal Commanders on a Niche status (We got Hydra Lord now, & It creates so many on the fly.), but I'm not here for yet another Tribal Commander, I just wanted help for one thing right now:
(How do I make a Toughness Matters) deck in //? Commander: Pramikon, Sky Rampart. In spite of my Efforts, the First thing I need help w/ is:
1: Is there anything in MTG's entire Glossary of stuff that's good for Toughness Matters in ?
2: Notice most of my High Toughness Creatures aren't simply there as Defenders. Most actually have great abilities; & even don't have to be Wall Card Type to be so. Do you see this as a good idea, or not? This is very important if you're viewing my deck at incomplete status.
3: This is planned as a Toughness Matters deck, but some of the cards seem to show a Sub-Theme (Drannith Magistrate (HE'S NOT THE UNLUCKIEST. CEASE DEBATE. XP), & even Peregrine Drake.). Since this isn't the conventional Toughness Matters Deck using Defender more than I should, what do you think might be good here?
Honestly, I dunno what else to ask; maybe I'll add more questions overtime. Thanks for the help if you can; Obviously, this is a Pramikon, Sky Rampart "Toughness Matters" deck, but I'd rather Talk less of / (Golgari Swarm), & talk nothing at all about Doran, the Siege Tower as well as Arcades, the Strategist; I just want to experiment on a good Brew. Any ideas that can help? Thanks again. :)
(& sorry for the Huge Wall back there; I didn't think I wanted help again. X/ At least I eradicated it.)

Hey, at your Ur-Dragon deck the last part of my comment was cards for you to consider cutting. In that list are the Dragons that I think you could cut.
Dragons to consider cutting:
I think your deck can be improved by cutting some Dragons and replacing them with more low mana cost tutors that can tutor directly for the better Dragons. Four and five drop Dragons are not really needed because the cards you want to play at this stage of the game is ramp which gets you closer to playing more powerful Dragons and Ur-Dragon which is better than all the rest.

Gain control of target creature until end of turn. Untap that creature. It gains haste until end of turn. Rowan's Persuasion deals 3 damage to it.
"You know, it's funny; I thought you'd be a bigger threat." - Rowan.
Sort of a light emulation of both her +2 and -2.
Turn one of Nicol Bolas' other siblings into a Planeswalker. For reference, they are:
- Palladia-Mors, the Ruiner
- Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire (Cousin, not sibling but close enough)
- Chromium, the Mutable
- Arcades, the Strategist
As an alternative challenge, Merrevia Sal is another sister to Bolas / Ugin and the rest but never had a card representing her because she was killed early on by Humans. Do her justice and make her a Shard / Wedge that hasn't already been done by the Bolas family. Since she died so early, she doesn't get a Planeswalker card; Only a Legendary Creature - Elder Dragon.
Funny enough I just realized that Bolas and his family are all SHARDS with Ugin being colorless. Huh, neat! So make their lost dead sister, Merrevia Sal, a wedge :3

I run a Mayael the Anima that is also about as Timmy as it gets, and I definitely feel the frustration you feel when your alpha strike is undone by instant speed removal. The solution I've found is to try and be a Timmy, whilst playing like a Spike, and wait for the perfect opportunity (Opponents tapped out) to seize the chance for an Alpha strike and kill the damn blue player.
I found that getting rid of my removal package was the first key. 1, I found it counter-intuitive to my deck - I want creatures on the field, so every time I was holding a board wipe, it was a dead card. Your dragons win the day with their size and flying anyway, You needn't fear any other board state. You have access to white - you could run a protection package? Stuff like rootborn defences etc, that will stop the killing, Aw hell, you have access to blue? If Cyclonic Rift keeps ruining your day, force your opponents to get creative against you, run Syncopate or Scatter to the Winds and counter their Rift! That'll teach them - and you'll win more games. Screw it all and run your own Cyclonic Rift - you can cast in an end step to ensure there are no blockers for your dragons, and guarantee and open door to the opponent!
