Thantis, the Warweaver Discussion

Chhris on Advertise your COMMANDER deck!

Comments and +1 incoming on as many decks as I can on this page!

This is my Thantis, the Warweaver deck. I'm looking for any suggestions for possibly cutting out redundant cards, and refining the deck as much as possible. I want the deck to be as much of a chaotic nuisance as it can be, shutting down card draw, controlling the board state, locking down life gain, and basically living that age-old creed: 'A fast game is a good game.' Of course, if you like what you see, please drop me a +1 and a compliment because you're all such lovely people.

Gleeock on Most chaotic deck

I am SO in love with this. Hardcore EDH players have a tendancy to make a "coin-flip chaos" deck though & just make a million flips until it is no longer chaos... So watch out for that. Some Max chaos cards: Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire , Etali, Primal Storm , Oath of Druids , Rampage of the Clans , Infernal Genesis , Endless Whispers (not a may ability) Uba Mask , Captive Audience , Thantis, the Warweaver , Overabundance , Hypergenesis , Painful Quandary , Ruric Thar, the Unbowed , The Great Aurora , Bolas's Citadel - if you don't try the topdeck nonsense... Several of these will achieve chaotic games in diverse ways: punish people for waiting to play, force them to play, force parity, or make random splash plays for your advantage. Of course, forcing unusual parity doesn't lend a hand to you winning, but that is not the point.

Chhris on Direction / Opinions for Thantis

Hi folks!! I'm seeking direction + opinions + maybe even "good jobs" about my Thantis, the Warweaver deck.

Chapter 2: Xenoblade Chronicles Thantis

Commander / EDH Chhris


I'll try and surmise as succinctly as possible what I'm after: My goal with the deck is to create an atmospheric deck that seeks to install panic and confusion in my foes. I wanna do this 1. Via Thantis herself, and causing my foes to attack each round, 2. via effects like Possessed Portal and Omen Machine to stall their plans and force them to adapt. 3. To be the only one thriving in this atmosphere by controlling the combat step. This is my goal. I would appreciate any tips or tricks for doing this better :)

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 months 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
