Suspicious Bookcase Discussion

How is it you have so few lands? You have way too little ramp to pull of 34 lands! Wild Pair is awesome for this deck as most or your walls are similar total power/toughness. Speaking of walls, Suspicious Bookcase is one of the cooler walls and can ensure one of your big butt creatures can smack an opponent in the face when you need it to. Hope I helped...

If you're running Phenax as the commander, then I recommend stocking the deck full of walls, because they always have higher toughness. Moreover, they are generally cheap to cast, so by the time Phenax hits the board on turn five, you are ready to start up the mill engine. I recommend Glacial Wall , Amaranthine Wall , Wall of Lost Thoughts , Hover Barrier , Suspicious Bookcase , and Wall of Frost .

My two cents:

(1) you need more evasion. You have a metric ton of +1/+1 counters, which is great... but only 2-3 things that give trample and only 1-2 other pieces of evasion. Against the wrong deck, you'll get chump blocked all day. These specific cards are mostly just examples, but consider adding unblockable ( Suspicious Bookcase , Whispersilk Cloak ); deathtouch ( Gorgon Flail , Nightshade Peddler ); trample / multi-purpose ( Loxodon Warhammer , Haunted Cloak ).

(2) you need more protection. Everyone will gun for your doggo, knowing that it's your whole win-con. You have a few things, but not enough IMO. Add more indestructible ( Hammer of Nazahn ) and hexproof ( Mask of Avacyn , Archetype of Endurance ).

I'd suggest culling some of the +1/+1 cards - especially one-shot like Battlegrowth . Also, shroud isn't great with voltron because you can't target/enchant/equip, so I'd lose Lightning Greaves and Aspect of Mongoose .

Looks like a fun deck!

Dauthi Embrace .. I've won games with this card, whether it is making a blocker ineffective or ensuring an attacker gets through unharmed, real weird game changer. Other weirdees: Bedlam , Magistrate's Veto , Suspicious Bookcase

Rogue's Passage can give your infect creatures unblockable. Suspicious Bookcase does as well, but it's more susceptible to board wipes.

Passage or Bookcase are excellent in your deck because you're really just looking to get one or two infect counters on your opponents, then use proliferate effects to kill them.

Hi multimedia, thanks for your suggestions. This was the first commander deck I've ever built, kind of like my little baby, haha. I have a few cards on the way for it, Tree of Redemption , Land Tax , Slagwurm Armor and Brave the Sands . I had Saruli Caretaker in the deck previously, took it out for some land search cards to get Rampaging Baloths going. I've previously searched for Wall of Denial at a decent price, but limited availability made me give up. Postage to Australia from the US or Europe is another factor, hahaha. I will keep your suggestions in mind for future acquisitions, as many of them would work very well.

As far as my cut list goes, Fountain of Renewal , Chaos Wand , Deep Freeze , Worldsoul Colossus , Suspicious Bookcase and Guardians of Akrasa are there because they do stuff, but not great stuff if that makes sense? If you have other suggestions on what to cut, I'm all ears!

I think Suspicious Bookcase and Aegis of the Heavens should be in the deck as they win the game. And Memorial to Unity let's you find Tetsuko and Arcades (like Incubation , but more is better). Maybe you have a different approach. I just want to kill the opponent with an unblockable defender. So I play some more draw spells to get some combo out.

Whispersilk Cloak is perfect for this commander. Suspicious Bookcase could work like another rogue's passage. I am a big fan of using Nemesis Mask in aggro builds, it forces blocks that may allow you to take out creatures that sit on the board with effects.
