Parallax Wave Discussion

Bxbx on Cards worded like fiend hunter

2 weeks ago

Parallax Wave can be abused in a similar way. With its activated ability on the stack remove it from the battlefield so that its triggered ability resolves before the activated ability.

Also note that the activated ability can be used to abuse Fiend Hunter etc

I like to run Opalescence and Parallax Wave for Hanna (it's technically still not creatures). They also work with Decree of Silence as a backup to Solemnity and if you want to throw in Parallax Tide you can get some infinite mana to help get yourself out of your Stasis lock.

Parallax Wave and Parallax Tide are what go nuts in stax with atraxa.

The golden goose for this deck has a hefty price tag, but Doubling Season often ends games.

Ramp that abuses Atraxa would be helpful. Astral Cornucopia and Everflowing Chalice can become huge mana sources.

Mirrodin's Core is excellent fixing.

The whole cycle of Parallax "X" get very interesting when sustainable w/ Atraxa. - Parallax Wave, Parallax Tide, and Parallax Nexus.

Norn's Annex and Sphere of Safety to keep your PWs safe.

You could use Parallax Wave, Parallax Tide, and Opalescence. All three area a combo for infinite mana and removal of all creatures, lands, and enchantments. You can use the Opalescence with the Parallax Wave to bounce 4 of your creatures and/or enchantments. Let those resolve, then target itself with the last fade counter removal which will exile it and return it with 5 fresh fade counters, and the 4 creatures/enchantments you exiled, letting you get all those ETBs. Rinse and repeat for all the ETBs endlessly, assuming they will kill your opponents or give you the victory in some manner.

I see Felidar Guardian in your list, so you could probably try for the endless Felidar Guardians with haste with Saheeli Rai. I don't think that has been banned in EDH, just standard.

What kind of deck are you looking to be? Control? Aggro? Mill? etc.

TearsInRain23 on Commander for a Mono White ...

I have done this already with great effect running Thalia, Heretic Cathar. Most white enchantments carry brutal control options that rival if not over power blue control in the commander metas I have seen. Ghostly Prison, Sphere of Safety, Solemnity, Spirit Mantle, Land Tax, Martyr's Bond, Opalescence, Aura of Silence, Parallax Wave, Worship, Seal of Cleansing, Idyllic Tutor, Enlightened Tutor, Academy Rector, Replenish, and I could go on.

Nice, I also have an atraxa decklist. You might want to check it out, it could give you some ideas. I'm not sure how much play you've gotten with atraxa, but i've found that people really hate her, and tend to target her quickly (might just be my local meta) but having a way to get counters on her as she comes in is great. I see you already have Master Biomancer, but other cards with graft are a great way to get counters on atraxa. Cards like Plaxcaster Frogling, and Llanowar Reborn are FAN-TAS-TIC in this type of deck.

Also if we're talking about abusing counters, nothing beats Parallax Wave. As for other great (and very broken cards) in atraxa: Spike Weaver for infinite fog, Sage of Hours for infinite turns (its like Lighthouse Chronologist but your opponents can't stop you). Retribution of the Ancients turns counters into killing power. Odric, Lunarch Marshal, because your commander has FOUR KEYWORDS. And why not toss in Umezawa's Jitte to kill your opponent in no time with commander damage?

But I hear you saying: "this is to much mana, I can't cast all this!" WRONG. Atraxa has THE BEST four color manabase out of all the 2016 commanders. I see you have some of the vivid lands and one of the storage lands, grabbing the other two vivid's and storage lands from that cycle would be best. Vivid Marsh and Vivid Creek, Saltcrusted Steppe and Calciform Pools. You can also add lands that would normally only tap for 5 colors sometimes, but always tap for any color with atraxa. Like: Aether Hub, Mirrodin's Core and Gemstone Mine to name a few.

As for cuts? Cut all of the cards that don't have synergies with counters first, and then cards that don't Synergize that well after that. My picks for removal would be Bred for the hunt, commander's sphere, garruk wild-speaker, reveillark, zameck guildmage (sage of fables does this for colorless mana), and abzan falconeer.

Sorry for the long post, I did alot of brewing on my atraxa list. Let me know if you want more feedback.
