Shifting Sky Discussion

Sumradagnoth thanks for the update!

Reconstruction seems like a great include, the deck can certainly afford to lose the Gitaxian Probe so that sounds like a good decision. I think I will edit that change into my version of the decklist as well.

As for your other two suggestions, I'm not completely sure about them. Shifting Sky seems pretty good at first glance because it allows Llawan to bounce everything, but on the other hand it becomes a completely dead card if you draw it after Llawan is already in play unless you have blink effects. I think Wash Out costs too much mana for it's effect, especially at sorcery speed, but it may be a good meta call depending on what your opponents are playing. I think I'll add a maybeboard section to this decklist just to keep these "almost" cards organized and easy for myself to remember.

Thanks again for all of your input and hard work playtesting the deck! It feels great to be getting updates on this deck's performance from another user while I have it disassembled. Cheers!

mynameisfifi small update...

I have removed Gitaxian Probe for Reconstruction. Artifacts are so critical for wincon and my pod was getting very aggressive so this switch has helped.

Maybeboard now includes Shifting Sky and Wash Out.

Please comment on any of this :) I appreciate your input.

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:

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?

I strongly recommend Shifting Sky for this commander.

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.

There's also Shifting Sky for color changing. Caged Sun might be too expensive, but if not, it'd be great.

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.
