Kresnic on Bastion

You need asap a Basilisk Collar, and some swords (Sword of Feast and Famine,Sword of Body and Mind... etc...) I'd also use a Darksteel Plate, those are the equipments I usually use in my commander to keep Narset alive, and in my tiny Kemba, to wreck everyone else...

You may want to exchange a wall for a kitty that gives you the ability to equip anytime you could play an instant. Also, get rid of Veteran's Sidearm its pretty much useless, get some Lightning Greaves or the much cheaper Swiftfoot Boots.


You have a big problem in there, you want to get as much as you can from Strata Scythe but, you have 8 LANDS that aren't plains, and some of then do not give you utility, the lighthouse is ok, but Ghost Quarter, Myriad landscape, Foundry of the consuls, are not the kind of lands you want in a fast paced game as tiny leaders.

You may even switch them for plains and you'd probably be ok, now, Karoo and Emeria, The Sky Ruin would be good substitutes for those as well (If you bought the "Forged in Stone" 2014 Commander I'm sure you have them). Also think about lands that enter tapped, they are not giving you utility, nor helping you out to get your shiny gear and stomp your opponent, therefore I'd switch Myriad, Secluded, and Mistveil for plains, in a monocolored deck, you only want really really good lands to be fast or have utility, or basic lands.

Plains are your friends.

Sorry for my awful english (4 am, and looking at decks... kill me), and I really hope you can improve this deck, and wreck them all with the Mighty kitty blink blink, that calls kittys.

Hey silversponge,

I really like the deck idea I have built one similar using Collected Company, I think you could easily drop the white down a lot and maybe only splash white for Dromoka's Command and maybe Feat of Resistance, I agree with EricGORE that Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit will cause more problems than help and with Avatar of the Resolute being a lot better you may as well have four of him.

Here is what I think the deck could run like with just a splash of white to keep it still all about counters and creatures.

4x Servant of the Scale 4x Avatar of the Resolute 4x Reverent Hunter (I feel this is so undervalued with the current standard pool) 4x Hardened Scales 4x Tuskguard Captain 4x Dromoka's Command 4x Solidarity of Heroes 4x Den Protector 4x Ainok Guide 1x Dragonlord Dromoka (I know he doesn't directly link with Bolster or Counters but he is a very powerful card and is a little harder for the opponent to deal with) 4x Windswept Heath 4x Plains 15x Forest

Here is a link to my deck that is similar if you want to have a look? Collected Trample

Knight of the White Orchid costing WW might be a problem for you, if you want to bring it out early.

My land suggestion would be:

4x Mystic Monastery
4x Shivan Reef
4x Battlefield Forge
4x Flooded Strand
3x Island
3x Plains
2x Mountain

Hey, why play Arid Mesa and Flooded Strand in a mono white deck? If you want non basic Plains then why not put in Command Tower.

I had been thinking about Flooded Strand and a Plains for a while, and I ran them at FNM last night and it was pretty good, so I think I'll make the change permanent.

I've also been losing more and more interest in Anticipate. I know it is good, but I love just drawing straight cards, so I think Jace's Ingenuity is the thing I need.

I'd personally take out the Wingmate Roc completely, and use the two extra slots to add in another Archangel of Tithes and another Brimaz, King of Oreskos. I'd also take 2 or three Plains out and build up a few more enchantments off that, maybe some auras. Starfield of Nyx is basically a must in this deck. Pacifism and or Murder Investigation are some other options for more creature based enchantments :)

Nice deck. I would normally agree with having 12 out of 27 scry lands, but then you also have 3 colorless lands in the mix. So, I would suggest:

- -1 Temple of Enlightenment
- -1 Temple of Silence
- +2 Island or +1 Flooded Strand & +1 Plains

The meta is definitely speeding up, and having access to untapped mana early can help control decks remain relevant in the format.

I have taken a different approach, can you please review & provide feedback on my dragonless UB control deck:

I'm uncomfortable with the 1-of Forest and Plains. :x Maybe put Checklands in for them?
