Phyrexian Dreadnought Discussion

Feyamius on Varolz, the Jank Ridden

Vanilla creatures are way too bad with their power compared to their mana cost. I once had collected a list with creatures I wanted to put in a Varolz deck, but I lost it. But if you search a bit, you'll find stuff like Death's Shadow, Phyrexian Dreadnought, Hunted Horror, Lupine Prototype, Tempting Wurm or Barrow Ghoul. Two of which (Lupine Prototype and Tempting Wurm) could even be made able to cast profitably with a discard subtheme in the deck.

KingDeSanders, thank you so much for the kind words! I'm so glad you've enjoyed the deck! I know I have! I've really tried to focus on the cost effective and win-out-of-nowhere attitude, so I'm glad it's working for others as well!

Yeah removal is always tough on me; I know I can improve my protection, and those are good suggestions! Thank you!

Shielded by Faith doesn't work like that with Phyrexian Dreadnought. Indestructible doesn't prevent sacrifice effects unfortunately :(

(If you confused, check the gatherer text for the Dreadnought. The "bury" has been corrected to a sac effect in the errata)

I've used Sundial of the Infinite in early versions of the deck. Never got it to work for me but glad you found some use out of it! It's a fun card.

This deck got you into commander?? I'm touched. Seriously. I'm honored. I don't know what else to say.

re: P.S. I'm not very devious haha! Not a huge fan of the infinite combos but they're alright.

wonderboyrox on Illusionary Horror (Torpornought)

I 100% agree with one of the prior comments made.. drop green. Green is not doing you a damn bit of good in this deck. Splashing a second color for a single Maelstrom Pulse and a bit of lifegain from Deathrite Shaman? Definitely not worth it. You are far better off splashing blue for some counterspell protection/disruption. Especially for Stifle which fits right into your theme. Turn two Phyrexian Dreadnought? Who could complain about that?

What I would do:

-1 Maelstrom Pulse

+1 Hymn to Tourach

-2 Abrupt Decay

-2 Illusionary Mask

+4 Stifle

-3 Liliana of the Veil (Great card, but honestly too slow for the deck imo)

+3 Spell Pierce

Of course swap out the nonbasic G/B lands for U/B lands. I'd start there and playtest for a bit. But I honestly think these changes would go a long way for your deck. And with the changes I mentioned.. you could probably even get away with running 19 lands instead, since my suggestions are lowering your overall mana curve.

WolfEatsPenguin on Gisa Sacrifice EDH

3 weeks ago

I don't know your budget, but I recommend Phyrexian Dreadnought. He can immediately be sacrificed to gisa to avoid his cast stipulation so you get his power in tokens. This also could work with Mimic Vat. I also recommend Staff of Domination which can help you combo off with the affordable mentioned cards and Ashnod's Altar and maybe Xiahou Dun, the One-Eyed

Torpor Orb makes a ridiculous synergy with Phyrexian Dreadnought!

Thorbogl on Selvala's Hydras

Sheltering Ancient, Phyrexian Dreadnought and Phyrexian Soulgorger are additional kickstarters for selvala.

May be a bit pricy but definitly speeds up the whole thing even more

GeminiSpartanX I'll be dropping a comment shortly!

Here's my beloved deck again! I'm trying to make it more competitive! I'm also stuck at 69 upvotes!

Commander / EDH Suns_Champion


Looking to spend another $75-$90 tops on this.

Trying to find slots for Reforge the Soul and Slumbering Dragon.

Mainly looking for suggestions in card draw, ramp, lands, and creatures with good mana to power ratios, regardless of any downsides(think Phyrexian Dreadnought).

Meta includes Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite, Zurgo Helmsmasher, Narset, Enlightened Master, Nekusar, the Mindrazer, and Sliver Overlord, among others.

Any help with this would be much appreciated! this is my first attempt at a competitive deck!
