Maybeboard


My shot at making aggro work in Commander. Wincon is swarming the board with vampires, then dropping Shared Animosity, Coat of Arms or Mirror Entity and taking all opponents out in one swing, or stopping my opponents from clearing my board or playing pesky blockers with Armageddon or Contamination and repeatedly smashing face for as long as is necessary. Alternative wincon is Oathsworn Vampire + Phyrexian Altar/Pitiless Plunderer + Cruel Celebrant/Blood Artist/Impact Tremors. Comments and suggestions are very welcome.

Upcoming Changes: Out: Scheming Symmetry, Nomad Outpost, Caves of Koilos, Inspiring Vantage, Isolated Chapel In: Diabolic Intent, Sunbaked Canyon, Arid Mesa, Verdant Catacombs, Scalding Tarn.

Notable exclusions, tech choices, budget options, fun suboptimal options: Steelshaper's Gift: I feel that this deck has enough card draw and general tutor effects that I don't need to run ways to specifically look up Skullclamp. This or Open the Armory could replace Wheel of Fortune.

Contamination vs Armageddon: Contamination is generally better because it can be looked up with Academy Rector and Enlightened Tutor. If you're feeling particularly evil, run both.

Temple of Silence, Malice, Triumph: It might be correct to run these even in the fully pimped out version, because you can almost always get away with sacrificing one mana for digging one card deeper into your deck.

Oketra the True, Anya, Merciless Angel, Tajic, Blade of the Legion: I like these a lot, but they are somewhat too fair for my meta.

Door of Destinies, Cathars' Crusade, Fervent Charge, Dictate of Heliod, Ajani Goldmane, Obelisk of Urd: These are all slower and less impactful than Shared Animosity, Coat of Arms, Mirror Entity and Eldrazi Monument. You should include a couple of these for redundancy if you can't afford to run all the tutors.

Anointed Procession: Hot take, this card sucks in this deck and you would be much better served by running an anthem effect.
