Profane Command Discussion

thewyzman on Sultain Goodies

enpc, I know what you mean, bud. Goodstuffs is a bit scattered, naturally. Obviously, the colors can do so much: Control, Reanimator, Combos, etc. Since I haven't really gotten a chance to play this live much, it's mostly theorycrafted, and will likely evolve as it gets more experience.

  • Rewind was actually the first major counterspell I put in the deck, and here's why: In most cases, I'm keeping 4 mana open anyhow for Taz's ability. Once I cast it, it untaps the mana and then I can still use Taz's ability, so it's a free counterspell if I can keep the mana up for it. Honestly though, it has been a card I've been eyeballing for cut.

  • I hear you on the bouncelands, and I've got Cabal Coffers (I'm just not black-heavy) and High Market in my paper maybeboard.

  • I, too, feel like I need more ramp. I have cards like Tempt with Discovery and Explosive Vegetation, as well as dudes like Sylvan Caryatid, but the problem is that they're junk past the first few turns... easy pickins for opponents when I'm pumping mana into Taz's ability, and awkward cards are the first to get cut. NOTE: I actually just got Burgeoning in the mail today, so that'll be the first ramp card to find its way in methinks.

  • I've got an Animate Dead somewhere, MIA atm, but also have Beacon of Unrest and Profane Command in maybeboard also. This deck is actually a descendent of Sedris, the Traitor King, which I built as reanimator, but found it vulnerable and ineffective too much in multiplayer, so I made this. I skipped reanimation as a theme because it's one of those that feel like it's all or nothing, but a few inclusions couldn't hurt.

  • Regarding self-mill, I agree with you completely, which is why I took out Deadbridge Chant (10 cards with no control, swiftly met with Rakdos Charm just feels horrible). That said, the Siege is a loot engine that at least lets me select 1 out of the 2 cards as additional draw. Nyx Weaver is one of those cards that feels sketchy, but that sac ability means I can turn it off at any time. Sidisi, Brood Tyrant is the only card that feels bad self-milling, but at least I can sneak a zombie or two onto my board. If anthing, she's the one to get chopped simply because she doesn't provide me any cards while all other self-mill cards provide loot effects.

jaeger_Konig on Breya's Bouncing beauties!

GS10 you are absolutely correct in my avoidance of combo pieces. I want it to be a fun deck that relies on the power of breya and etb effects. My main problem right now is I have very few win condition's outside of just draining them to death with Marionette Master after having Panharmonicon say, enter with 3 counters and 3 dudes. I am currently thinking about adding in Profane Command as a utility card, along with another possible win condition through Ashnod's Altar and sacrificing all of my token guys for the kill. Disciple of the Vault sort of fits this theme and might make it in, once I find a card to take out for it...Thanks for the suggestions!

TearsInRain23 on first deck build

I'll throw it n my 2 cents on some black that will fortify your deck as well as agree you have too many creatures and not enough land.

Painful Quandary, Cabal Coffers, Demonic Tutor, Profane Command, and Liliana Vess just to cover some random mono black good stuff.

When building commander you need to think about how impactful the cards you use will be after you play them. One time casts need to have real omph, mana needs versatility or ramped in quickly, board presence is key but you need to think on how the deck will work. It is easier to start with a theme or play style before you even pick a commander. I would recommend browsing as it will tell you literally everything you need to know about commonly used strategies for chosen commanders and tribes.

Also I got some more ideas here for you, Liliana's Influence, Tree of Perdition (I'm sure it's easy to figure out why. I know you are against infect for this deck, but you could use this alongside something like Glistening Oil). Besides that however, you could try things like Battle at the Bridge, Profane Command etc on it.

Rhonas's monument, Channeler Initiate, Dusk Urchins, Wickerbough Elder, Worldly Tutor,Flourishing Defenses, Sudden Spoiling, and maybe Noxious Hatchling.

I hope some of these are of some use, too me like 30 minutes to either think of/find these in gatherer lol. I know I gave a bunch of suggestions here worth consideration, and so feel free to ask if your having trouble finding something to swap out for some of these potentially later on.

Training Grounds discounts tasigur activations. In my tasigur deck i employ a combo to finish the games. Deadeye Navigator + Peregrine Drake gives you infinite mana then with tasigur you can activate it infinite times to put every non land in the deck in hand and every land in the graveyard at which time i either use Stroke of Genius, Profane Command, or the last resort Seasons Past + Time Warp. Happy gathering!

Thanks for the suggestions! You brought up an interesting point about reach. I've included some Profane Command to fill that role.

Honestly, I have 8 reusable sac outlets and between those and combat casualties, I don't think I need anymore.

Pumping power is fine but pumping toughness is not so good here. If I gave all my creatures x/+1 it would turn off my Desert as a way of getting bodies in the grave. Thanks for the thought though.

TreyV on Budget Black Control ($60)

I dig this.

My suggestions are Abyssal Persecutor or Master of the Feast. Desecration Demon's thing where the opponent can tap him is maddening sometimes. Percy suffers from no such problem, and is Trample. You've got a fair number of ways to get him off the board, too. Master of the Feast is so huge, and so early that people usually wind up using those extra cards to kill him, and if he does whack them once or twice, great!

Also, Profane Command for Consume Spirit. Does basically the same thing (except for the life gain) and then so much more, for the same mana.
