Plea for Guidance Discussion
6 days ago
This incarnation of the deck is having fairly regular FNM wins against fairly competitive opponents!
This week I won a three-man pod by casting Plea for Guidance to grab Debtors' Knell and True Conviction to make my Doomwake Giant and Thoughtrender Lamia more formidable, and while hitting one opponent, draining the other as I had Sanguine Bond in play.

Some tutors wouldn't be bad either (because of Curse of Misfortunes): I have a couple of Open the Armory sitting around, even though the CMC is steep I've had good luck with Plea for Guidance I also have an extra Enlightened Tutor I must've got from modern masters

I saw your forum post and thought I would offer my two cents because Daxos was my first commander ever! So let's take a look under the hood shall we?
I do think there could be more ramp because Daxos is always hungry for mana. There could also be more in the way of card draw as well. Which when I give recommendations you will some cards that will help with both categories.
So we will begin on in my opinion what should be cut. The following cards I believe should be cut: Necromancer's Covenant, Grave Peril, Seal of Doom, Skull of Orm, Tragic Arrogance, Marshal's Anthem, Nighthowler, Celestial Archon, Banshee of the Dread Choir, Planar Cleansing, Three Dreams, and Herald of the Host. These cards which I have played with before are very slow and sub optimal for locking down the board with a pillowfort strategy.
Now it should be noted that when I recommend cards, I recommend a lot because I like to give people options of what's out there. With that being said there are a few cards that I believe fall under the category of *Must Haves*, those being the following: Dictate of Erebos, Anointed Procession, Mirage Mirror, Phyrexian Arena, Day of Judgment, Ghostly Prison, Kismet, and Plea for Guidance. They do beautifully in a Daxos deck. Now for the other cards I believe would be beneficial(This is where we get lengthy lol): Curse of Disturbance, Nevermore, Darksteel Ingot, Commander's Sphere, Oblivion Ring, Coldsteel Heart, Heartstone, Authority of the Consuls, Darksteel Mutation, Flickering Ward, Grim Guardian, Erebos, God of the Dead, Greed, Kambal, Consul of Allocation, Hour of Revelation, Underworld Connections, Read the Bones, Anguished Unmaking, Utter End, Aegis of the Gods, Swords to Plowshares, Return to Dust, Relic of Progenitus, Whip of Erebos, Ancient Craving, Solemnity, Grand Abolisher, Eidolon of Rhetoric.
Those are my thoughts as of this moment. If you have questions about why I chose certain cards we can talk about it! Lastly as I alwasys say with recommendations; these are my thoughts based on my experience. By no means are they the end all be all for your deck. The point of Magic is that it's your deck and your choices for what you want to do. So please do keep that in mind!

So I had a nice big list of suggestions and they went poof. I'm gonna summarize my main points and give a short list of cheap and less cheap cards. First is that if you're going to run such a healthy amount of card draw AND Eidolon of Rhetoric you ought to have some kind of no max hand size. Second is that Arcades gets help from Vigilance. The following list is choices of cards to fulfill those two functions (in various price ranges) as well as a couple other cards I run in similar decks. I know some of them would require you to free up a significant amount in your budget but I feel I'd be remiss not to mention them.
- Brave the Sands
- Heliod, God of the Sun
- Reliquary Tower (let's hope this and/or the following one get reprinted in Commander 2017)
- Thought Vessel
- Kruphix, God of Horizons
- Plea for Guidance
- Curse of the Swine
- Windborn Muse
- Planar Cleansing (this works well with the following one)
- Praetor's Counsel

RubyOrzhov - The deck didn't start out to expensive, but its been one I play and tweak the most over the past couple of years. Looking at it now yikes, lol. Snow-Covered Plains are important for Sunstone, but you can ditch Scrying Sheets if you're trying to knock down the budget. Kor Haven can slot in for the Maze of Ith for a couple of bucks cheaper, and it taps for mana (or more straight up removal like Condemn works too!). Glacial Chasm is a new edition, but before then it was just a plains and I was still running a Selfless Squire as another fog. Serra's Sanctum is completely non-essential. I'm not even running enough enchantments to get as much value from it as I'd like.
Land Tax and Tithe can be Gift of Estates and Oreskos Explorer. Temporary Truce is from Portal so it costs a few bucks because of that, but for much less you can run Truce, which is the instant version of it. Or just slot back in the Mentor of the Meek I took out. Angel of Finality can be Stonecloaker. In the general theme, you can run Mobilization and Knight-Captain of Eos for a nice repeatable fog as well. This works well if you've got out a way to protect the Captain.
Academy Rector and Crucible of Worlds are the two expensive cards I put the closest to be needed, but you can work around that too. Just the way EDH works there's still cards I've NEVER drawn in the deck, so I can't say any one is completely needed unless its the actual wincon. Plea for Guidance is your budget Idyllic Tutor or Rector. And White has enough ways to find land (including Eternal Dragon) that CoW is just something nice to have if you can run it.
Thanks for the comment, I hadn't really taken the time to think about a more budget friendly version of this lately!

This looks disgusting (as per your usual, i wouldn't enjoy going up against this beast).
That being said I think though you should add some ways of getting more enchantments back such as Starfield of Nyx and some other uses for your deck rather than just curses. Id add more creatures and items that play on your enchantments such as Myth Realized,Daxos's Torment,Whitewater Naiads, Skybind, and Plea for Guidance. Also probably remove the illegal cards from the deck and add in non basics, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx.
Well have to play-test it when i get back (if you have the cards for it). -Jr
