Talisman of Dominance Discussion

Daedalus19876 on Ides of Marchesa, The Dethroner of Boners

1 day ago

I used to play Marchesa so here are a few of my suggestions:

If you can give your commander shroud, Death Match seems awesome here.

Have you looked at Magmasaur? Hilarious tech for Marchesa.

I'd try to find a few cheaper mana rocks, like Talisman of Dominance and Talisman of Indulgence. In general I try to have my mana rocks cost 2 mana or less if they only add a single mana to my mana pool.

Your deck can abuse "destroy all" effects very well since most of your board comes back. For example, Necromantic Selection.

Free sac outlets such as Goblin Bombardment allow you to sacrifice your undying creatures twice per TURN. Grim Haruspex draws disgusting numbers of cards off of this combo.

Hope this helps! This was my original list:

Entrei on Nekusar, the Friendship Destroyer

I would seriously advise running a few more mana rocks. My personal favorites are Coalition Relic and Talisman of Indulgence/Talisman of Dominance, but relic might be a bit pricey. Seeing as you are playing nekusar, 0 mana mana rocks such as Chrome Mox, Mana Crypt, Mox Opal, Mox Diamond and Lotus Petal allow you to get more value from continuously wheeling, but most of those cards are rather expensive. I also advise taking out Howling Mine, as it is rather slow, and instead run something akin to Hive Mind(and if you would like Mizzix's Mastery, which is hilarious with hive mind)

@Icbrgr: Good luck with this deck! It sounds like fun!

I was brewing 4C Land Destruction for a while and really liked playing it, but then they banned Deathrite Shaman.

That reminds me, does your deck benefit much if you added mana acceleration, like Golgari Signet, Mind Stone, Solemn Simulacrum, or Talisman of Dominance?

The only other suggestion I can think of is adding Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoths to the deck so that you can tap your Ghost Quarters and Tectonic Edges for . It also lets you play cards like Mutavault or Stalking Stones more efficiently. It also makes Mutilate and Corrupt insane. I think even with a limited budget, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth is the one card definitely worth investing in.

Hello! I think the area this deck could most improve in is ramp. I see that your deck is relatively budget so I'll try to keep my suggestions cheap :)

33 lands is very, very low for a control deck. Artifact ramp is one of the best ways for you to increase the speed that your decks runs at (so that you can keep up with a faster-ramping table). At the very least, this deck (like every other commander deck) needs a Sol Ring. Talisman of Progress and Talisman of Dominance are good in your colors, and since your deck is so slanted towards white, Pearl Medallion might serve you well.

Speaking of color slanting, you might want to shift your mana base to use more white (since nearly 70% of your deck is white but your mana base is evenly distributed). Do you usually have problems casting your spells on time?

(Also, have you considered Boon Reflection?)

I think you should drop all ETB tapped lands, drop your land count to about 32 and add in a lot of signets and possibly talismans like Talisman of Dominance

Do you intend to win through damage?

Winterblast on Please Hold (Oloro Stax)

I play Stax is various variants myself and I can only suggest reducing your land total and replacing them with mana artifacts for 0-1 mana...and use all of the ones legal for commander: Mox Diamond, Chrome Mox, Mox Opal, Mana Vault, Grim Monolith, Voltaic Key, Lotus Petal. You become much faster and avoid your own land destruction easily.

I would also Play Talisman of Dominance and Talisman of Progress, Coalition Relic too (maybe instead of the Signets because they can produce mana themselves without paying 1 first).

Land Equilibrium is my all time favourite because it completely stops the game for everyone relying on lands. After a mass removal on lands no one can put a land into play unless you do - with lots of mana artifacts you won't ever need to do this and that's it then. Perfect synergies are Overburden, Mana Breach, Sunder (and the bounced lands can even be used for Card Advantage with Scroll Rack). It would require some adjustment of your mana base, especially adding all the mentioned artifacts, but it's a play style most opponents can't deal with. Maybe you can find some more ideas in my deck Absolutely Static Stax

Academy Rector is great with so many enchantments in the deck, especially to get out a killer Card like Humility. Nether Void, The Abyss and Consulate Crackdown are also nice to bring into play unexpectedly.

Yeah, just swap to Talisman of Dominance

CalUrycki on Breya Goodstuff

So I like the signets and talismans because they ramp so efficiently, and to add all the on color ones:
Dimir Signet
Izzet Signet
Boros Signet
Orzhov Signet
Rakdos Signet
Azorius Signet
Talisman of Dominance
Talisman of Progress
Talisman of Indulgence

I think you can add these to your 34-land count and be fine. These are great because they can be used for things like Reshape, Goblin Welder, Daretti, Scrap Savant, etc. as well as tapping for mana and ramping you.

I'm usually not sold on Trinket Mage packages unless you're fetching combo pieces, and in Breya colors, you have awesome removal. You aren't some mono color or colorless deck that's dying for Executioner's Capsule.

For other cuts I would look at Mechanized Production and maybe some spot removal. You already have Vindicate, Swords, Path, etc. so cards like Utter End and Dispatch might be overkill.
