Hi!! Really like your build. +1 for Thantis Spiderboy. Looks fun. Have you found many challenges playing this commander? Anything you feel you need to deal with better? I like your addition of Virtus the Veiled I admit he's not someone I thought of, but he and his partner I feel are amazing for Thantis. What do you think of Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs and Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor ? They would go good for you.

I would appreciate any help you could offer me on my Thantis build also:

Well here is every golgari commander:

https://edhrec.com/commanders/bg

For your first deck it is better to stay away from having too many colors. It just makes the deck more expensive and harder to put together, imo. That said if you want other colors then go for it.

Since you want the deathtouch/trample thing I would go for one that already has deathtouch or trample. So here are a few you might really like.

Glissa, the Traitor - generally an awesome stax deck with her being able to kill most anything. Lots of equipment give trample and if they get blown up she can put them beck into your hand.

Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons - doesn't have either ability her self but makes tons of deathtouch tokens. It is a fairly easy step from there to give them trample and pump them with any number of green spells. She is also a pretty staxy commander.

Gorm the Great // Virtus the Veiled - I haven't played this pair but I've seen them in a few games. Virtus is devastating... And no one wants to get hit with him so he almost needs to be given trample or other evasion even with Gorm being present.

Sisters of Stone Death - She is a bit different. Technically she doesn't have deathtouch. What she does is better! Add trample and she does her thing while smacking in for a lot of commander damage.

Finale note is power level of these commanders. None of them are considered competitive and Hapatra and Glissa are likely the only ones I listed that could sit comfortably at a high powered table consistently. And your strategy doesn't always work very well in commander. The attack step is usually just not strong enough... Still you should play what you want.

Virtus the Veiled is a legendary Azra, so I'll make him a flipwalker.

Virtus, Bereft

Legendary Creature - Azra Assassin

Virtus, Bereft and other Azra creatures you control have "Whenever this creature deals combat damage to an opponent, draw card and discard a card".

When Virtus, Bereft dies, exile it and return it transformed at your next upkeep.

1/1

Virtus Reborn

+2: Create a 1/1 red and black Azra Warrior creature token.

0: Sacrifice an Azra creature. Draw a card.

-4: You get an emblem with "Attacking creatures you control get +1/+1."

-10: Return all Azra creatures from your graveyard to the battlefield. They gain haste until end of turn. Repeat this process at the beginning of you next upkeep.

2

Create an Aminatou, the Fateshifter moth

I know this modern, but if it weren't, Virtus the Veiled and Gorm the Great would be an awesome fit.

Updated Replacements:

  • In
  • Koskun Falls More taxing effects are great for this deck.
  • Comeuppance An instant speed punish for someone wanting to go all in against us.
  • Crush Contraband Artifact and Enchantment spot removal, much needed addition.
  • Cleansing Meditation Enchantment board wipe that will usually bring all of our enchantments back.

  • Out

  • Thunderstaff Too slow and isn't overly useful for us since we don't go wide on the board as much, however may come back if I feel like giving our opponents creatures a +1/+0 will help us end the game sooner.
  • Virtus the Veiled Not enough evasion effects in the deck to make running this guy worth it.
  • Kami of Ancient Law Needed better removal; swapped out for Crush Contraband .
  • Dark Petition Not enough instants and sorceries to always hit the spell mastery in this deck.

I thank you for your comment.

I'll definitely replace Thunderstaff for Koskun Falls . More taxing effects seem to work wonders in this deck.

As for Comeuppance , what a great card in here! I'll likely replace Virtus the Veiled with that. I don't see me ever really connecting to a player with him to make it worthwhile unless I have Break Through the Line on the field.

I think I'll drop either Felidar Cub or Kami of Ancient Law for Crush Contraband .

As for having a board wipe, I've honestly been thinking of replacing Magus of the Disk with Merciless Eviction . But since it hits everything I'm worried it would put me so far behind on the board. What board wipes would you recommend for this style of play?

Wanted to throw in my motions for my meta-tuning/upcoming release :

Blood Tribute -> Revival//Revenge - Well covered in thread already! Strictly better.

Thaumatic Compass  Flip -> Weathered Wayfarer - I typically find myself with this card in hand in low mana situations, leaving me in a position where I'm painfully waiting for a third mana to crack it. Wayfarer is cheaper and can find maze quicker than Compass transforming if desired.

Curse of Opulence -> Smothering Tithe - Same effect, but more upside without singling out an opponent

Virtus the Veiled -> Surgical Extraction - Virtus generates too much heat at my table without evasion/haste feels like a dead card; I feel the same about master of cruelties, but payoff is far greater. I've seen a rise in early game Entomb/Reanimate effects - I've been hit twice with a turn 2 It That Betrays in the last month, along with a Shadowborn Apostle deck becoming a heavy hitter at my local LGS and an infinite spore frog loop.. I don't want to use Rest In Peace, etc. since that will generate too much hate, as opposed to singling out a combo piece. Also, the surprise 0 cost will catch even the best players off guard.

Xantcha, Sleeper Agent -> The Scorpion God - Too many sacrifice effects in my meta for this to be worth the slot; it’s also killed me twice due to Homeward Path type effects. Scorpion God seems like a good politicial tool and dump for mana kept open for instants before next turn, also card draw.

Caves of Koilos > Cabal Coffers -> Lots of Urborg usage in my meta.
