warrior_boots on Part-ners: Silas Renn

5 days ago

Thanks for the comments on this and Part-ners: Ravos, SoulCycler. I hadn't considered Kusari-Gama yet. Between Whispersilk Cloak, Whirler Rogue, and Key to the City, I think I am happy with the number of evasion pieces for now. I also have a few other forms of recursion in the deck between Trading Post, Skeleton Shard and Beacon of Unrest, in case Silas doesn't have a clear path to through the battlefield.

Burnished Hart is a tempting target, but I am trying to spread the love between various partners. I may give the Hart to a deck without as many mana rocks (maybe Ravos, Soultender -- recursion in the command zone and the Hart's even from Theros!).

Nevinyrral's Disk seems like a serious consideration as a synergistic boardwipe. What to cut for it, though? Maybe Thada Adel, Acquisitor?

MoonTurtle7 on Here I Come Again Asking ...

Last time I asked you guys what Mono colored commander I should construct. I wanted something fun and you guys most certainly delivered, that Thada Adel, Acquisitor deck is by-far my favorite deck I've made so-far. Thank you for that.

So I've come back to ask yet again what to build. This time no color limit, I just want something fun and easier on your wallet. I'm leaning towards commanders, and little explanations on the average decks made with them at the helm.

I'll give you a little help finding the ball park.My friends whom I play with, play Animar, Jhoira, Alesha, Tajic, Saskia, and Tazri. I don't wanna overlap, so those guys are a little off limit. I've never been a huge fan of not having creatures. I like "steal stuff" decks, but Thada is that already, though I will hear people out if it's different enough. My playgroup likes to avoid Stax and I'm iffy on doing Voltron. Competitiveness is not what I'm looking for, Strong is good, but being top tier isn't necessary. That should kinda some-up what I'm looking for.

TLDR; Suggest a fun commander that isn't Stax or Voltron. Competitiveness is optional.

I know you guys got this. Thank you at the very least for checking this post out. Ur even more awesome if you leave a suggestion.

Thanks flapjackwars for the suggestions. Let's discuss the ideas. Let me start by saying that this deck was built for a multi-player chaos environment. Speed isn't so much of a concern in my usual meta game. This deck was built more for endurance. At least that was the idea I was trying for.

Scrap Trawler and Pia's Revolution are in the deck to work in situation where someone has played Declaration of Naught naming my Commander. Yep, that has happened. So, in my view, I have 3 cards in my deck that recur artifacts for me instead of just one.

I've played Extruder in an artifact based deck before. It's ok. I thought about it for this deck. I guess I'm still on the fence about this one. I have the Bosh, Iron Golem, Krark-Clan Ironworks, Viscera Seer, Throne of Geth, and Trading Post for sacrifice outlets. Not sure if that is enough or the route I want to go with this deck. Ashnod's Altar is a good choice that I'm going swap out the Ironworks for. It does provide a wider range of sacrifice options.

In the maybe board I had before I posted this deck, I had the some of the cards you mentioned.

I cut the Time Sieve, which is a great card, because I felt that it painted too much of a target on me in table politics. It may still end up in the deck at some point. Not sure on this one. Tough choice for now. I'll probably have to play the deck some more to really get a feel for it.

I cut the Trinket Mage, Trophy Mage, and Treasure Mage because I didn't want this deck to really be about tutoring. Another reason I cut the tutor creatures was that I felt that they didn't syngerize with the +1 counters theme. I can't use them as Modular targets. They don't help as much once they are on the field except as blockers. And I can't recur them like I can with the other artifacts. Thopter Engineer suffers from some of the same problems. I like the 'artifacts gain haste' aspect, but I have Exava, Rakdos Blood Witch to provide haste. Exava gets seen by Marchesa where the Engineer does not. Pia and Kiran Nalaar, and Pia Nalaar are good cards but I just felt that they didn't syngerize as well as some of my other choices. They have the same sort of down sides that the tutor creatures do.

I didn't use the Sol Ring because I didn't think that I needed that kind of mana acceleration. Also, once I cut the Trinket Mage I didn't have a way of tutoring for it early enough in the game for it to be useful.

Thada Adel, Acquisitor is used in another deck I have and doesn't get to stay on the table very long, rarely long enough to be very effective. Check out my Aboshan, Cephalid Emperor deck.

Marionette Master felt to mana costly for what it gave me when i first read it. Reading it again, it might fit. I'll have to think about that one for a while.

Treasure Keeper, Phyrexian Metamorph are really good cards that I overlooked. I am swapping the Cogwork Assembler for Phyrexian Metamorph based on your suggestions since it cost too much mana to make the copies with the Assembler. The Treasure Keeper is another card I'll need to think about for a bit. I like the free cast aspect. I'm not so fond of the reveal my deck to opponents aspect. Tough call.

I need to go through the new cards in Amonkhet to see what can fit into my EDH/Commander decks.

Thada Adel, Acquisitor is easy ramp and more artifacts for you to mess with.

Maybe Acquire. Usually my Thada Adel deck can cast Acquire or turn 4 with the help of some poor saps Sol Ring

This is pretty cool. I have a similar deck that someday I might build. Not sure where you want the deck to end up power level wise but I'll suggest Extruder, Treasure Keeper, Phyrexian Metamorph, Thopter Engineer, Marionette Master, Thada Adel, Acquisitor, Pia and Kiran Nalaar, Pia Nalaar, Trophy Mage with Ashnod's Altar etc, Trinket Mage with Sol Ring etc, and the nuttiest card in the deck, Time Sieve. I feel like you'd also do better lowering your curve, as cards you can cast before Marchesa get to be recurred immediately, while higher cost cards compete with the casting Marchesa and can sometimes be late to the party afterwards (if you have to wait a whole turn cycle to recur them). I'll also warn you that Scrap Trawler and Pia's Revolution may prevent Marchesa from returning your artifact creatures and I'd recommend taking them out. I can suggest a lot more possible additions to consider and point out some things I'd cut if you'd like, I just wanted to rattle off the thoughts on the top of my head.

Your Sol (Ring) is Mine! is my Thada Adel, Acquisitor deck. It has a pretty good win percentage and it's fun to play. Aggro with the commander into huge fatties ramped into via other people's mana rocks is always fun. My vote is for Thada, but if control is your thing somebody like Arcanis or Azami might be better.
