As Shifting Sky enters the battlefield, choose a color.
All nonland permanents are the chosen color.

It's more of a control build, using Dromar as an enabler as well as a staller. Incorporating cards like Darkest Hour to change the colors of all creature to black than using Dromar's ability to bounce all creatures.
There are a couple cards that works with this synergy like:
Not to mention with the color hacking synergy you can run cards like:
- Devout Lightcaster - Fun to bounce and redo again and again
- Circle of Protection: Black
- Major Teroh
- Northern Paladin
- Tsabo's Assassin
- Mother of Runes
It's a fun kind of cool theme, there are a lot of color hating cards in the old days, so changing the color of the board and color haxing things is pretty funny. Although you do need quite a bit of mana to work, so Esper colors do rely quite a bit of rocks.
What do you peeps think?

At a glance, you'll probably want more mana. ~34 is what most decks run. If you don't want more plain islands, consider Temple of the False God, Halimar Depths, Moonring Island, Desert of the Mindful, Remote Isle, Faerie Conclave, Skyline Cascade, or Soaring Seacliff.

My favorite odd card to use is Shifting Sky. I have made multiple color changing decks where this is the strongest card. See if you can make a deck that both wants and utilizes this.

I rean a lower cost aggro variant of this- relying on Shield of the Oversoul, Clout of the Dominus and Steel of the Godhead with Civic Saber and Blessing of the Nephilim to pump up, and Zur the Enchanter as a one-of. Curved into mantis rider and Lightning Angels where the shroud could really shine. Sedraxis Specter deserves a look as a resilient and powerful threat, and Skyrider Elf is both cheap and big without knights. Hide/Seek is a really powerful tool. I ran Shifting Sky for a while as a mixed pump with Guildscorn Ward, but it isn't great.

With a commander with such a unique ability, I would consider looking for some more niche cards that work with him. I can't really see the strategy (except for the obvious swords) that you are going for, since there is a lack of description, but maybe you should consider cards like these: Painter's ServantPsychic AllergyShifting SkyCards like Swirl the Mists.Even cards that have abilities like Ugin, the Spirit Dragon. Obviously Ugin, the Spirit Dragon would be easy to add here, since he is colorless and you are in mono-blue.

To start off, sorry if this is in the wrong forum, I'm new here.
For a while I've been wondering if there was a "true" undefeatable board state. For me, that means that you start the game with whatever you want in play, with no cards in your hand, graveyard, deck, or exile. Your opponent starts out with a deck with no restrictions and has to try to win the game. Also, you are not allowed to interact with anything in the game (such as activating a scepter). Ideally, you opponent would be able to play things as well (e.g. no combos that prevent players from having hands, playing lands, etc.)
Currently, I have a setup that I think will work, and I want to see if there are any cards that I have overlooked. Here is what I currently have:
Platinum Angel - fairly obvious, prevents decking/lethal damage
Mycosynth Lattice - necessary for many upcoming cards
Darksteel Forge - all your stuff is indestructible
Indomitable Archangel - all your stuff has shroud
Tajuru Preserver - prevents stuff like annihilator
AEther Storm - for Bane of the Living, Ixidron, Crovax, Ascendant Hero or Ascendant Evincar, Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite, Magus of the Tabernacle, Kataki, War's Wage, Avatar of Slaughter + Kaijin of the Vanishing Touch etc.
I'd love to replace one of either AEther Storm or Narset Transcendent because having both means that opponents are unable to cast any sort of spell, which I feel goes against the spirit of the impenetrable pillow fort.
Please let me know if you have anything that you think can get through this. Thanks :D
