Draw a card if an opponent has cast a blue or black spell this turn. Spells you control can't be countered this turn. You and permanents you control gain hexproof from blue and from black until end of turn. (You and they can't be the targets of blue or black spells or abilities your opponents control.)

Veil of Summer Discussion

Thanks for the effort of building the deck, and of proposing the ban. I've got a question to ask, though. Can the card Memory's Journey be used as an anti-fish tech? The card has been seen some fringe usage, especially in budget decks. Most winning conditions in this deck guarantee three cards in the graveyard, and a devotion as high as five or six is almost unrealistic for a fast deck like this. Furthermore, the flashback may also cause some dilemma for a player backed up with counter magic.

Admittedly this card is useless against the "go-to" breakfast combo, which makes the Blood Pet/Wild Cantor Route a bit less attractive, and has no use when Veil of Summer is up. Adds to the frustration trying to fight a deck this all-mighty.

Well, that's pretty much all I can come up with the topic. In vain as it might seem, any comment is appreciated.

CardTyrant - Do you ever find yourself getting hated out of games because of your commander? At my LGS there's one player in particular that tries to get the other players to gang up on me when I play my dinosaur deck. I'm testing out things like Veil of Summer and Seedtime to try and protect myself. Also thinking of running Carpet of Flowers as there seems to always be someone playing blue. Interested in hearing your thoughts!

I completely agree on White being one of the best supplementary colors for a Voltron strategy, if not for anything else than their affinity for equipments, auras and not letting the opponent do anything on your turn.

I feel like you're not giving enough credit to Green and Black and too much credit to Blue. Mainly because blue-white (as the preference for at least 2 of the colors for your Commander) don't have that good Voltron commanders to blow the other colors completely out of the waters.


Green have ways to protect with Veil of Summer, Heroic Intervention, Autumn's Veil. Green can re-use the graveyard far better than you give them credit for. Which is not irrelevant if your plan goes awry and your Commander ends up dead or countered a lot. Or if all your equipment gets blown up with a Vandalblast.

Green also have a piece of the "my turn, I play, you don't!" with City of Solitude and Dosan the Falling Leaf.

Green has a lot of card draw available to them to substitute blue's card draw. And in certain situations their card draw is more efficient than blue, especially for Voltron. Hunter's Insight, Return of the Wildspeaker, Soul's Majesty, Rishkar's Expertise. If you choose the aura approach, there's the entirety of the Enchantress group that white also have some additions for.

Green also have a few enchantment affinities like white, with the likes of Sterling Grove, Ancestral Mask, Rofellos's Gift.

And how could I forget about the lovely interaction between trample and deathtouch - you're basically getting unblockable at that point. Hmm, it seems like black is more keen on giving it to creatures than green is.


Moving on to Black, there's a group of surprise cards that Voltron Commanders can take advantage of, like Hatred and Tainted Strike. And the ever-weird Endless Scream that's permanently applied firebreathing. Of course not to mention the best variety of tutors available in Commander.

One way to get past your opponent's defenses is if they don't have any. Black is certainly one of the better to provide in that aspect.

I'm quite certain I don't even do black justice here, but I'll refrain from bloating this response further. I just feel like the ranking is skewed disproportionately.

I wasn't able to find Hornet Queen or the Selesnya Sanctuarys, and the Deputy of Detention is actually one of my wants, not one of my haves. I do have Kambal, Consul of Allocation, though, as well as a Gruul Turf if you're just looking for any green bounceland for Amulet.

What about Spell Queller and Kambal, Consul of Allocation for 2x Veil of Summer and Eladamri's Call?

@Pieguy396 How does this look?

Spell Queller - 11.31
Hornet Queen - 1.62
2x Selesnya Sanctuary - .23ea = .46
Deputy of Detention - 3.17
Total: 16.56

3x Veil of Summer - 5.47ea = 16.41

If you don't end up having a Hornet Queen, I'd take Kambal, Consul of Allocation (1.41) instead.

I have a Spell Queller and potentially a Hornet Queen and a couple Selesnya Sanctuarys. Would you trade 3 Veil of Summer for them?

Hey all! I've recently decided to let go of my Druid combo stuff, since I prefer a more Pod-like approach as opposed to all-in combo, so I have the following available:

Playsets of:
Devoted Druid (Ultimate Masters)
Vizier of Remedies
Giver of Runes
Finale of Devastation
3 Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip
Eladamri's Call
Knight of Autumn
Birds of Paradise (2 M12, M11, Battlebond)

also:
1 Silent Clearing
2 Walking Ballista
1 Ranger-Captain of Eos
3 Postmortem Lunge
1 Chord of Calling (M15, Russian)
1 Collector Ouphe
3 Veil of Summer
1 Thalia, Guardian of Thraben (Dark Ascension)
4 Restoration Angel (Avacyn Restored)
3 Wall of Omens
1 Spellskite

So yeah, I'm keeping the lands, Hierarchs, Eldritch Evolutions, and Pod stuff (you can't pry Voice of Resurgence or Kitchen Finks from my cold dead hands), but most everything else I have is fair game. If there's anything else I may not have listed, feel free to ask about it. I probably have it. :)

I'm looking for:
Sword of Feast and Famine
4 Ice-Fang Coatl
1 Spell Queller
2 Monastery Mentor (I have 1 Korean if anyone wants to swap their English one)
1x Cavern of Souls (preferable Innistrad, either printing is fine tho)
2x Selesnya Sanctuary
1x Hornet Queen
I will also binder dive, but my binder seems to show only the foil/promos?
