Taigam, Ojutai Master

Legendary Creature — Human Monk

Instant, sorcery, and Dragon spells you control can't be countered by spells or abilities.

Whenever you cast an instant or sorcery spell from your hand, if Taigam, Ojutai Master attacked this turn, that spell gains rebound. (Exile the spell as it resolves. At the beginning of your next upkeep, you may cast that card from exile without paying its mana cost.)

Taigam, Ojutai Master Discussion

chadsansing on Hack the World

I like the colors here; I usually see mono-blue hack decks locally.

Maybe an Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth to help out the Angry Mob?

I wonder about other commanders and Esper value creatures, as well. Hanna, Ship's Navigator, might have some use here, as might Zur the Enchanter. You could even test with Dromar as your commander. Or maybe Taigam, Ojutai Master to make Dromar and your hack instants uncounterable?

Your land base looks a little unbalanced, as well. Can you swap out some B, BW, and BU sources for more U sources, more W sources, and/or more UW sources? Even going to 5 Swamp, 10 or 11 Plains, and 12 or 13 Swamp might help. You might also be able to cut the Temples (and perhaps some other tap lands) for U and W lands that come in untapped by including more draw spells and effects like Pull from Tomorrow, a bunch of other blue or black card-draw instants and sorceries, Sphinx's Revelation, or something like Search for Azcanta  Flip.

Have fun playing!

LeaPlath on Is this a decent commander?

Dragonlord Ojutai is a fairly decent value commander. A 5/4 flyer for 5 isn't to be sniffed at. However, he gets a lot better with Minamo, School at Water's Edge which is 21 dollars currently.

You could also pair him with stuff like Taigam, Ojutai Master who works as both as value or theme commander, or just a value card and a lot of there "cares about dragons" cards

Maybe Taigam, Ojutai Master could be good, but the fact you have to attack with him might be limiting.

Hey there! I saw your Reddit post asking for help, so I decided to leave a comment here because I like T/O comment syntax better. In any case, I would probably focus more on your control and voltron themes, and cut out cards that don't help either of those plans (mainly the Wizard subtheme, I'd stick to just 2 plans).



Hope this helps!

Razulghul on Token Spellslinger list?

2 months ago

Hi all, I'm in the process of trying to brew a mostly creatureless token deck using spells like Raise the Alarm, Spectral Procession, Rise from the Tides etc. I know these spells are generally not great in edh but I consider it kind of a challenge to make the deck workable.

First off, choice of commander. At first I wanted to do something with 4 colors, like Tymna the Weaver+whoever but that didn't seem great. I really like Jeskai for this but I don't think any of the commanders really seem like a fit. I settled on Taigam, Ojutai Master after much thought. The rebound ability makes a lot of the spells more impactful and the interaction with Dovescape is great and my most likely win condition.

I'm curious if anyone has advice on which token spells are best to include? Should I only stick with the ones that mostly make fliers or are the 2cmc 2 1/1 spells viable as well? Heres a link to a very rough draft of what i have so far: Ojutai Tokenslinger

Thanks for any help!

If you want people to just quit then I find Dovescape + Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite works well, you can also use cards like Boseiju, Who Shelters All or Taigam, Ojutai Master so you can still use your own spells

For a budget manabase, you got almost all the cards you need. You might want to had a Unclaimed Territory and a Terramorphic Expanse. Other then that, the new dual lands reprinted in Ixalan (ex Dragonskull Summit ) are kinda cheap, you can buy them for arround 3 to 4 dollars but your low on basic land to make them worthwhile I think. You can also put more battle for zendikar lands in.If you want to go up in budget though (not to the lvl of Tundra ), a Cavern of Souls does wonder in any tribal deck, especially in a one. Then, there's Wooded Foothills, Polluted Delta, Bloodstained Mire and so on.

On another subject, if you really want to play cards such as Taigam, Ojutai Master and Mirrorwing Dragon, you have to put in more instant and/or sorceries to profit from them. Perhaps Boros Charm for exemple. Also, in a slow paced deck, you will love to use wipes, so a good Wrath of God or Supreme Verdict might help.

Very impressive card list indeed.

In regards to my very first comment, about your commander selection, have you considered Taigam, Ojutai Master at all? I'd be quite curious as to your opinion on him. He looks to fit the mold of the commander you want more than Dragonlord Ojutai. Also looks like he would provide better deck synergy. At the least I think he warrants consideration as one of the 99.
