So I should probably wait for the entire reveal of war of the spark to see potential upgrades but I'm impatient...

I'm building a superfriends deck with Thantis, the Warweaver at the head of it. SuperThantis is what I've put together and I was hoping for some suggestions on things that might be better.

Thantis, the Warweaver , super-fun & bizarre combos. No linear quality, because there are no obvious shoehorned commander synergies to follow. I'm excited for Insidious Dreams into Bolas's Citadel & other things.

MeetTheMayhem on Thantis: Lord of War

Not too convinced by Ensnaring Bridge . It has multiple negatives in this deck:

  1. It stops my opponents attacking a lot of the time, which is directly conflicting with many of my "all creatures must attack" triggers. Kind of relying on other players killing each other, with my help.

  2. Generally, I want to be attacking with largish creatures when the dust settles on my opponents Hunted Troll , Hunted Dragon , or Thantis, the Warweaver for commander damage KO etc. so this would be directly stopping me doing that.

  3. There is no way to turn this off outside of drawing cards. The high CMC cost of the deck means dumping my hand is going to be very difficult and with no in-build sacrifice mechanic I think I might end up getting outraced by token/small tribal decks in the end game as my larger creatures would still be prevented, but smaller token swarms wouldn't.

Thanks for the suggestion though!

MeetTheMayhem on Jund Enchantment Pillow-Fort deck help!

3 weeks ago

Hi all,

I have been working on developing a Jund pillow fort deck using Thantis, the Warweaver as my commander. The basic premise is to try and start a lot of in-fighting in multiplayer games by using Curses and creature donating effects (Hunted creatures, Rite of the Raging Storm etc.) alongside effects that force each opponent to attack with everything on each of their turns, which the commander helps with.

At the moment I think I have a pretty solid decklist with plenty of things that motivate players to attack each other and dissuade them from focusing me. However, I am a little concerned that the high average CMC of the deck, coupled with the do-nothing turns of playing curses/enchantments might leave me very vulnerable in the early game. I am looking for Crawlspace -like effects or those like Propaganda in the Jund colours like Koskun Falls with the aim of making attacking me expensive.

Current Decklist is Thantis: Lord of War

Thantis, the Warweaver helps stir the pot while keeping protection for yourself with his Vigilance. Ive got a friend running a similar Turbofog with Thantis as his CMDR and its honestly really fun to watch. +1

I have been experimenting with a similar deck and i love were your going with this.
I would recommend taking Master of Cruelties out of the maybe board.
Master of Cruelties + Thantis, the Warweaver abilities allows you to choose.

  1. You may attack with all creatures which means Master of Cruelties becomes unable to attack.
    This leaves you with a first strike + death touch as a defender.
  2. You may attack with Master of Cruelties which makes your other creatures unable to attack.
    Leaving you a full strength defense with the possibility of taking an opponent to 1 life.

Thank you sooo much PhotogenicParasympathetic! I run a non-U political deck (feat. Thantis, the Warweaver and Gahiji, Honored One and the like) and OHMYGOODNESS Pharika's gonna kill in that baby!

Also love your name. That is all.

This deck actually started with a lot of commanders, chiri. Thantis, the Warweaver and Gahiji, Honored One were two big ones, but Mathas, Fiend Seeker , Queen Marchesa , Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire , Selvala, Explorer Returned , and perhaps my favorite (mostly because he's such an underrated political piece) Zurgo Helmsmasher are all incredibly fearsome and piles of fun. Not only that, but after the attacks are forced, Tariel, Reckoner of Souls is a very neat fella to toy around with.
