Rout Discussion

Optimator on (Budget-Prototype) Iroas, God Shogun of Bushido

With a heavy Equipment theme you aren't going to have much room for utility. A such, all non-card-draw utility cards should probably be removal. I would include at least two board wipes (more is often better, depends on your meta). Blasphemous Act and maybe Rout are good budget options. Vandalblast is sick. I'm super big on enchantment removal so Return to Dust is S-tier outstanding. Not super budget but not expensive either. I like Ray of Distortion a lot. It's very mana-intensive but the fact that you can do it twice is awesome in EDH. Dust to Dust will be handy. Lots of artifacts in EDH. I kind of like Revoke Existence since artifact recursion is common.

Chained to the Rocks, Oblivion Ring, and Banishing Light are versatile on a budget--as are the other cards with similar effects.

White is really good at shutting down commanders with things like Darksteel Mutation, Prison Term, Arrest, Pacifism, Faith's Fetters, etc.

There is also Crib Swap, Swords to Plowshares, and Path to Exile--budget willing. Chaos Warp is good in EDH. Very versatile.

There is lots of random utility to find out there. Reconnaissance and Dolmen Gate are usually great for aggro decks but your commander makes it far less necessary. Perhaps Brave the Sands and Always Watching . Fervor and Hammer of Purphoros are sick too. Ogre Battledriver is nice but not a samurai.

Boros Charm, Make a Stand, and Rootborn Defenses can save your board state.

Really, at this point the sky's the limit. You could do random stuff like Throne of the God-Pharaoh or Gift of Immortality.

Forgot to mention Mask of Memory when discussing card draw and equipment. Slate of Ancestry would be good in your deck.

Gypsyhatten on Karametra - I heard you like ramp

3 weeks ago

Upptckte att tappedout inte tillter svenska bokstver, men fuck it

ADDITIONS

  • Farhaven Elf - en smre Wood Elves men fortfarande rtt s bra

  • Whitemane Lion - om du gillar att rampa med Greenbelt Rampager s finns den hr jkeln, och flash innebr att du kan gra det precis innan det blir din tur (t.ex. hlla uppe mana fr Beast Within men om inget farligt behvde removas s kan du rampa p instant speed), men utan din commander r det ett rtt s dtt kort om du inte har ngon annan hftig ETB creature p bordet som du kan returna och recasta

  • Stonecloaker - som Whitemane Lion fast med inbyggd graveyard hate vilket gr honom mer relevant ven utan din commander

  • Ramunap Excavator - bra med Krosan Verge, Myriad Landscape osv. och mot mill/discard, men r annars inte s relevant

  • Solemn Simulacrum - vldigt bra att ha men lite trkig i en grn lek som inte bygger runt sacrifice/reanimation/artifacts

  • Elemental Bond - effektiv card draw nr man spelar med stora dudes

  • Temur Sabertooth - lter dig runka med extra ETBs och galen mngd ramp, men r vldigt irrelevant i situationer dr du behver ngot med mer impact

  • Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist - duglig combat buff, duglig pillowfort

  • Primordial Hydra - vill du ha en spelbar manadump hydra utver Hydra Broodmaster s r den r en ordentlig must-answer nr man castar den fr X>=5

  • Tireless Tracker - att den blir strre r inte s relevant men det r riktigt bra landfall, dock att behva betala 2 fr card draw r lite meckigt men bra om du ofta knner att du fr slut p gas

  • Emeria Angel - landfall som kanske inte r helt smst, men inte srskilt impactful heller

  • Woodland Bellower - om du har kort som Reclamation Sage, Eternal Witness och Wood Elves s r det hr ett ganska mysigt toolbox-kort

  • Sylvan Reclamation - vldigt bra removal och basic landcycling kan rdda dliga starthnder, men cmc5 r rtt s dyrt

  • Return to Dust - ocks bra removal men jag fredrar Sylvan Reclamation, denna r ett mana billigare men man vill oftast lgga den p sorcery speed

  • Oblation - ganska stor downside att ge motstndaren card draw, men jag gillar mjligheten att lgga det p en egen permanent som hller p att bli removad eller p en token fr lite emergency card draw

  • Momentous Fall - instant speed r det viktiga hr, kan lggas som svar p att ngon frsker remova en fet creature s fr du fet card draw istllet, eller bara lggas p sin tur nr man behver grva efter ett svar och olikt Rishkar's Expertise & co s kan man inte dda creaturen som svar p att du frsker dra kort, fr sacrifice r del av kostnaden (dock kan du counterspellas och d har du varken din creature eller kort)

  • Seasons Past - ungefr en till Praetor's Counsel fast billigare, det r inte allt fr ofta man behver returna mer n ett kort per cmc och recursion av flera kort kan vara vrt att spela mer n en kopia av

  • Traverse the Outlands - relativt billig big ramp men krver board presence och din strsta creature kanske blir removad som svar

  • Hour of Revelation, Planar Cleansing och Akroma's Vengeance - jag gillar dessa board wipes vldigt mycket, extra mycket nr din commander kan ta smllen utan att bry sig, och nr din lek r creature heavy s pverkar dessa dig nstan lika mycket som en Wrath of God medan dina motstndare fr ta massiv skit

  • Day of Judgment - en extra kopia av Wrath of God

  • Explosive Vegetation - bra ramp, men inte p samma niv som Cultivate och Kodama's Reach, och inte heller creature synergy som med Wood Elves och Farhaven Elf

  • Lightning Greaves och Swiftfoot Boots - du har en duglig mngd creatures som vill sl direkt och/eller vill bli skyddade, men det r ltt hnt att du fr slut p gas med kort som dessa

  • Seer's Sundial - en lite smre men lite tligare Tireless Tracker, n en gng bra om du fr slut p gas ofta

  • Primeval Bounty - inte srskilt bra fr 6 mana men mysig mngd token spam och lifegain om du gillar det

  • True Conviction - kostar mycket men lifeswingen man kan f r absurd

  • Mirari's Wake - big mana becomes even bigger, skulle inte sga att den r bttre n Zendikar Resurgent i din lek men man kan alltid ha en extra av samma effekt

  • Evolutionary Leap - bra stt att uppgradera mana dorks och dylikt till pseudo-card draw, men r inte alls lika bra som riktig card draw

  • Garruk, Primal Hunter - primra syftet r att lgga -3 fr en lite smre Rishkar's Expertise, men man kan ocks vara modig och spawna tokens och frska lta honom verleva

  • Temple of Plenty - helt okej dual land, scry ska inte underskattas men den kommer nd in tapped och gr inte att fetcha

  • Homeward Path, Scavenger Grounds, Ghost Quarter och Tectonic Edge - det r bra att ha svar pklistrat p lnder som kommer in untapped, men man vill inte ha fr mnga lnder som gr colorless (och som inte kan fetchas)

  • Blighted Woodland - en bttre/smre Myriad Landscape om du gillar effekten, denna kan man anvnda fr mana direkt men att det kostar totalt 5 fr att rampa med den r dyrt, speciellt nr du vill lgga din commander nr du har 5 mana

  • Emeria, The Sky Ruin - ett vldigt lngsamt och mysigt kort men som du kan f igng rtt s tidigt med din commander, du har dock ingen annan sacrifice/reanimation synergy s ibland har den inget att returna

  • Eventuellt fler basics - ven om din commander rampar och du har mycket annan ramp s mste man kunna behlla bra hnder och ha rd att lgga sina kort speciellt med en s hg average cmc, det r rekommenderat att sikta p 45 reliable mana sources (lnder + unconditional ramp som inte kostar 4+)

  • Sigarda, Host of Herons - en duglig beater och protection, men har utver det inte s mycket med leken att gra, jmfrelsevis s har Avacyn, Angel of Hope mer impact

  • Oracle of Mul Daya - vldigt bra ramp/pseudo-card draw, simply put

  • Lotus Cobra - kan balla ur med din commander p samma stt som Amulet of Vigor

  • Teferi's Protection - nnu bttre n Heroic Intervention, nstan lite trkig fr att den r fr bra men skaffa den om du har cash

  • Austere Command - en av de bsta board wipesen i spelet, flexibiliteten r absurd

  • Akroma's Memorial - en ordentlig soppa av combat buffs men kostar vldigt mycket mana fr ett kort som inte gr ngot i sig sjlvt och kommer vilja removas allt fr ofta

  • Mind's Eye - vldigt bra card draw nr man har mycket ramp

  • Sylvan Library - otroligt bra card selection och i ndsituationer kan man betala liv fr att gra det till otroligt bra card draw

  • Asceticism och Privileged Position - ganska trkiga "sluta interagera med mig"-kort och du ter fortfarande skit mot board wipes, men det kan vara snt som avgr games ocks

  • Aura Shards - vldigt bra removal nr man r creature/token heavy, fuck alla mana rocks

  • Temple Garden och Savannah (lol kp inte pls) - de bsta dual landsen som kan fetchas med din commander och Krosan Verge , auto-include om man vill spendera pengar

  • Windswept Heath - fetch land som kan leta upp duals untapped, auto-include om man vill spendera pengar

  • Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx - big devotion big mana, din commander ger dig big mana but you can always go bigger

CUTS

  • Elvish Visionary, Wall of Blossoms, Wall of Omens - de kommer antagligen vara bra just pga. din commander men de kan cuttas fr roligare kort om du har ont om plats

  • Pathbreaker Ibex - utan haste r han ganska tveksam, men man kan ocks gamblea p att motstndarna inte har removal s ballar han ur

  • Selvala, Explorer Returned - vldigt incosistent ramp och det r inte bra att ge motstndare card draw, men hon r kawaii

  • Subjugator Angel - en finisher fr aggro mot trga board states men hjlper inte mot pillowfort enchantments/lnder och riskerar att bara tvinga ut en Cyclonic Rift/Evacuation/Fog osv., beror p hur ofta du sjlv har knt att den har legat p handen och varit irrelevant

  • Trostani, Selesnya's Voice - enablar devotion och lifegain kan vara mysigt, men populate r sllan relevant och r bara en 2/5

  • Ulvenwald Observer - card draw r bra men folk kommer antagligen inte lgga vanliga board wipes med honom ute och du har inget eget stt att sacrifica, och han sjlv har inte trample

  • Mosswort Bridge och Windbrisk Heights - jag har gett upp p hideaway, alldeles fr inconsistent och conditional

  • Boundless Realms - vldigt bra spell men kanske blir ett dtt kort lite fr ofta om du redan har rampat med din commander, beror p din uppfattning

  • Nature's Lore - typ den bsta rampspellen fr 2, men personligen tycker jag Cultivate/Kodama's Reach r bttre pga. card advantage och Wood Elves pga. creature synergy

  • Revive - smre n Regrowth, fortfarande kanske spelbar

  • Selesnya Signet - signets r bland de bsta rocksen men grnt ska inte behva artifact ramp, just signets kan dock lta en keepa hnder med bara vita/colorless lnder

  • Thought Vessel - samma argument som ovan, no maximum hand size r vldigt verskattat, ven om du ngon gng drar 15 kort s behver du nstan aldrig behlla mer n de 7 bsta, och i grnt kan du spela med recursion som gr discarden nnu mer irrelevant

  • Staff of Nin - borde cuttas nr du lgger in bttre card draw, den r vldigt lngsam

Hey NonsouHiebara,

Thank you for sharing your great deck. I am a long time follower and I love this deck, because it plays the kind of magic which I enjoy the most: Artifacts and a mono-white build. Let's face it: mono white is the single-worst color in Commander. However, your deck is powerful with strong synergies and a flavourful theme, without swingy, game-ending cards and combos. I am taking a break from competitive commander, because it does not fit for me. There are other formats that do that for me. Therefore, I am strongly considering building a mono-white attrition deck for a more casual meta.

I would love to hear your thoughts on some cards.


Mana Crypt it is amazing, but it can do a lot of damage to you (1.5 a turn on average). It is great for decks that try to win fast. I think its probably fine to add it here since you have lifegain but I feel like you are a little slow to try to push for the win. The damage can add up quickly, especially when you aren't lucky with the random results.

Alternative Suggestions:

Wayfarer's Bauble is solid land ramp. I would rather have lands in play than a mana stone as they tend to get blown up. It's cheap to use and doesnt leave you with a target for things like Austere Command. It also lets you ramp into a turn 3 Balan, Wandering Knight.

Tithe is instant speed and let's you dropping lands when you fall behind.


Sensei's Divining Top I have started seeing this card a bit less as a staple for every deck.Card selection is always amazing and the more often you can refresh your selection the better this card becomes. It is amazing when you can manage to shuffle once per turn. This means that every turn, you get access to the best of three cards as your draw. It is great for trigger Miracle, like Terminus, even in your opponents turn. However, you don't have a lot ways to shuffle your deck to filter off the bad cards.

Alternative Suggestions:

Crystal Ball is topdeck manipulation where you dig into the cards you want or need. Whithout many shuffle effects it can make a nice addition.

Mind's Eye is one of the more powerful actual card draw effects available to mono white. It does not provide topdeck manipulation and it consumes a lot of mana. It is no Consecrated Sphinx and it may sit for a round until it provides value. However, it is very reliable card draw, especially if not answered quickly.

Crucible of Worlds is a good backup plan for your many utility lands. It turns Inventors' Fair into an engine. You already run Buried Ruin and Petrified Field which make this setup hard to disrupt. Personally I like including fetchlands if you are going to include this card just to expand what you can do with it. In mono color I tend to not run fetchlands. With Crucible I would consider fetchlands so I tend to have more shuffling, also for Sensei's Top.


Wrath of God and Day of Judgment are great when you are facing very fast decks. However, they lack versatility. At least the Wrath is a flavourful card and mostly stronger than Day of Judgment.

Alternative Suggestions:

Rout can wrath the board at instant speed as a nice surprise option.

Tragic Arrogance and Divine Reckoning work good with your voltron strategy. Keep your best creature and equipment and destroy the rest. Tragic Arrogance can also handle Indestructible and Hexproof, which is a great benefit.

Hallowed Burial Generally speaking I find it hard ever wanting to miracle Terminus. It can be nice with topdeck manipulation especially with Sensei's Divining Top, but I have also concerns with that card. Overall, I feel like the cheaper overall mana cost of Hallowed Burial could be a bit more solid than the random situations where you can profitably miracle cast Terminus.


Grasp of Fate and Angel of Sanctions are both efficient and versatile removal options. Your opponents will typically answer them quickly to get their cards back. I see it more like tempo cards, if you want to push for the win.

Alternative Suggestions:

Aura of Silence can act as as removal or as a tax and slowing effect on opponents until you want to remove something.You can access it with Enlightened Tutor and bring it back with Sun Titan.

Ray of Distortion is costly, but I think it's an underplayed card. Instant speed two-for-one removal is not too bad in my book.

Karmic Guide is amazing recursion on legs. It works well with Reveillark, even if you don't run Clone style effects.


Serra Ascendant is more aggressive and looking for swords. It's a nice and cheap beater.People get really pissed off when they see this on turn one and it usually leads to the whole table running you over first. Anyway, after clubbing a single opponent to under half life people start stabilizing and then you will turn the game into archenemy.

Transcendent Master Not really sure what to say. I think it's a very flavourful option and he gives you something to dump mana into. He can carry equipment and scales well into the late game. On the other hand he is very slow and everybody at the table will see it coming.

Alternative Suggestions:

Wall of Reverence acts as an amazing blocker paired with its lifegain it grants some great sustainability. You don't need to attack to gain life, which makes it great in more situations against decks that push hard on life. You also get the life end of your turn which can make a differnce.

Gisela, the Broken Blade comes down early, has evasion and lifelink. She's an efficient beater.

Baneslayer Angel is just an efficient beater, much like Gisela. She is very good at that. Again, it's a slow card, but so is Transcendent Master.

No Mercy and Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts can easily be removed from the board, I'd rather play more instants. I've thought about Rout, maybe I should put it in for it's flash ability. I'll put Cyclonic Rift in some time, and I really want to put in Comeuppance, Mirror Strike and Entrapment Maneuver to try them out

What about destructive attack like No Mercy or Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts? Rout can be cast at instant speed.

Hi,

your deck-idea is great! +1

I once thought about a similar deck, but it was more goofy. It tried to incentivize the opponents to attack each other and then cast pump spells and cards like Berserk or Blood Frenzy on the attacking creatures - ideally on their commander. Your deck somehow reminded me of that idea. I think, I'll have to start working on that again.

Some suggestions:

The following cards were in the deck I mentioned before and could be nice in yours as well:

That's all for now. Let me know what you think
