EDH deck with Hanna, Ship's Navigator as commander.

Trying to implement pillowfort and land destruction/mana lock effects and in the same time abuse Hana, Ship's navigator with cards like mind slaver , Tangle Wire , Oblivion Stone, Ratchet Bomb, Aura of Silence and other artifacts/enchantments with sac abilities etc...

Pillowfort package consists of Ghostly Prison, Propaganda, War Tax (three vital cards that also protect me from inevitable hate) there's also Meekstone with similar effect and of course Humility and mass removal spells).

Land destruction/mana lock consists of the usual Winter Orb, Static Orb , Tangle Wire package. Armageddon, Cataclysm, Catastrophe are here for mass land destruction. Mana Vortex and Land Tax, Sun Titan or Crucible of Worlds is another combo where I can gradually remove my opponent's lands.

If there's no recursion engine for my lands, mana rocks enable me to have an edge over my opponents when I nuke the board.

Smokestack is a finisher card, but can also be used early or mid-game in certain situations. Once again I can use one of my recursion engines or a token producers ( Mobilization , Luminarch Ascension, Myr Battlesphere) to fully utilise smokestack.

Luminarch Ascension and Steel Hellkite are here to finish off the game when I lock the board through pillowfort or mana denial.

Alternate win conditions consist of Azor's Elocutors and Solitary Confinment and a three way combo with Salvaging Station + Grinding Station + Flayer Husk .

It's still a work in progress so please share your thoughts, observations, suggestions.



have you thought about Propaganda ? it would combo nicely with Norn's Annex

I love what you're doing with this deck. I considered this idea myself.May I reccomend some more Hexproof rocks to keep your Commander safe from Kill-Spells? If you're relying on your Commander, you need to make absolute sure the only way to get rid of him is to Exile all Creatures or Cyclonic Rift them all away.

also, something that would combo well with Hinder and Lapse of Certainty would be Tunnel Vision . you put the card on the bottom of the deck, cast Vision, then mill their entire deck out.

Strionic Resonator for Daxos.

edit to my previous comment: Hinder and Spell Crumple are the ones that would work well with Tunnel Vision

I'm not very fond of Tunnel Vision combo, I don't like to win in that kind of manner :D


I was thinking about Strionic Resonator , very good card with Daxos and Medomai the Ageless

Beksl if you're wanting to focus on the Medomai extra turns thing, Fireshrieker is good because double strike will trigger Medomai's extra turn ability twice, due to damage being dealt twice (first strike damage, then regular damage). anything that grants double strike will work, naturally.

canterlotguardian I know, that's why I have Battle Mastery and have Fireshrieker and Grappling Hook in my maybeboard. There's also Silverblade Paladin to consider but I opted not to put to much attention to these cards as I mostly play multiplayer and I wanted to have more options with cards that can manipulate my opponent's library, or give me insight into their libraries, cards like Field of Dreams , Precognition etc.

Quick update: I took Strionic Resonator (and Rings of Brighthearth ) out of my Daxos deck because it only reacts with a tenth of the playable cards in your deck. Not very strong TBH.

Also, Lantern of Insight is made for Daxos.

In my 1.0 Build i used Flickering Ward with Sigil of the Empty Throne and made lots of angel Babies

Sigil of the Empty Throne is a great suggestion as I find it difficult sometimes to finish off my opponnets, I also added Luminarch Ascension for the same reason.

Mindslaver is my first combo choice with hanna next is Second Chance (a bit risky to let your life get that low but it could save your butt as long as needed once you get that low)

And personally having read most of the books i would have to run her father (Barrin, Master Wizard ) and her one true love (Gerrard Capashen ) and probably her ship too (Skyship Weatherlight ) just cause of who she is and how she died i think those are important cards for her (but then again i she was always my favorite character and i almost cried, who am i kidding i did cry, when she died)

Need more Counterspell s

Could you elaborate a bit more? With Hanna it just doesn't feel right to stock up with counter spells as she's better when you run other forms of denial.

Kozelek says... #17

For counter spelling you want Ertai, Wizard Adept

January 19, 2014 1:52 p.m.

Kozelek says... #18

Ertai, Wizard Adept paired up with Arcane Laboratory /Rule of Law is devastating especially if you put a Freed from the Real on him to use more than once a turn

January 19, 2014 1:55 p.m.

Beksl says... #19

I just don't see counters as a viable tool when playing Hanna, I'm just not the sort of player to auto include counters as soon as I'm in blue colors.

As in the game we played, this is pretty damn solid.
