Delta-117 Deckling

I started playing Magic the Gathering around the time of Journey into Nyx and since then I have come to enjoy this trading card game a lot. I have gone on to collect a growing number of cards from both sets old and new. I play generally a biy of near everything; Standard, Commander, Modern, Pauper, drafts and other limited events like prereleases.

My favourite color combination would be Although as of late has been growing on me, particularly in standard where I have been playing such colours since Kaladesh. The standard deck I speak of can be found below:

B/G Counters - AKH

Standard* Delta-117


Besides that I really love commander as a format and I first started with Vorel of the Hull Clade about 2 years ago before Atraxa, Praetors' Voice arrived and replaced them. During the time long before Atraxa still however, I became aware of Slivers and besides Vorel I also started a Sliver Overlord deck as slivers have just become my favorite creatures. I have during these times also started other. While none of my decks I consider yet complete, i'm always looking to improve them with new card additions from new sets, and all the while slowly improving the mana bases of all, particularly that of 5 colour slivers.

Add in Abrade, add in more Fatal Push's. Swap your gideons for Gideon of the Trials. Add more copies of Chandra, Torch of Defiance.

Add in 4x Concealed Courtyard, 4x Inspiring Vantage. Ixalan will have a new land cycle, I won't say anything further though, but you can find this out if you do some searching of your own.

Consider adding Fumigate, Yahenni's Expertise or similar effects. Add in a second Cast Out maybe too.

I would cut out your current creatures. The only creatures worth consideration in your colors after rotation are the gearhulks, then i'm sure Ixalan will have something.

Other than that though I suggest to just wait and see what is on the way for Ixalan.

Oh and might I suggest adding Chromatic Lantern, Prismatic Omen, and Cascading Cataracts to this.

I'm actually quite annoyed neither of those first two suggestions of mine were included in this precon.

It might be worth it to consider running Amulet of Vigor here. Also Enlightened Tutor as a means to find it, or any of your other good enchantments/artifacts present.

Looks like an awesome list though so far, thank you for giving me the ideas of Skarrg, the Rage Pits and Kessig Wolf Run for my own The Ur-Dragon list I am just starting to build now.

Said on don't do crack...


My dissapointing packs were all from modern masters (my last 7 packs bought were the following in this order).

Mizzium Mortars, Cruel Ultimatum, Cackling Counterpart, Broodmate Dragon, Evil Twin, Scavenging Ooze, and a Seance...

Hey there, thanks for the suggestions on my own decklist, now here are some for yours.

Swap Stromkirk Noble for Insolent Neonate.

Swap Worn Powerstone for Urza's Incubator or Thran Dynamo.

Swap Blood Baron of Vizkopa for Olivia Voldaren.

Swap Pawn of Ulamog for Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet (Wait for him to drop a bit lower in price if your uncertain still, after he rotates out of standard).

Iroas, God of Victory I would make room for here along with Anointed Procession somewheres.

As it's rather late for me when i'm writing this, I will continue to think up some more suggestions tomorrow, but this looks like a good start for sure.

Said on Mardu Vampires...


Thank you felletje!

I have taken out some of these suggestions including Tithe Drinker, Exsanguinate (instead of Debt to the Deathless, and Alhammarret's Archive. Then I kind was thinking I kind of wanted to try out Basilisk Collar in here because it seems like a lot of fun with edgar or Olivia, and I feel it's at least worth a try in the deck once I build this.

I will be continuing to update this decklist up until the release of commander 2017, and by then I hope to buy the precon and also I will be doing few trades to get a Bloodline Keeper, Kalastria Highborn and a few others, so I hope to try and get some gameplay in with this deck hopefully then as well.

August 14, 2017 12:12 a.m.

Thanks for the suggestions, was going to add Cryptic Command and just hadn't got around to it yet.

I only made this recently and with the commander being so new, I have had nothing to compare this list too. Since I was buying the dragon deck I will have access to Taigam, and he's a commander that offers a much different playstyle that is much better in another whole deck.

I was thinking of having my main win condition be Approach of the Second Sun here and I have added in a number of ways to help find it more often like Mystical Tutor, and Merchant Scroll plus a fair bit of draw effects.

This is just a quick draft that I will improve on tomorrow (definitely foxing the lands once I decide on the number) and so thanks for the suggestions.

August 12, 2017 9:15 p.m.

hwagner, I put together this quick decklist anyways. I still haven't quite narrowed it down to 60 cards and that is where I still need help. Also I think the mana base is still in need of a bit of tuning.


Standard* Delta-117


I was building this from the point of as if Bfz and Innistrad already have rotated and for that reason I chose to ignore Foreboding Ruins, Game Trail which I do admit would have helped the manabase, Grasp of Darkness, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet and a few others.

Said on vampire changes...


Hey there, I see your interested in building vampires too. I started doing up a list with all of my changes included, and this is what I have come up with so far:

There's just so many cards I wanted to cram into this thing and that is why it's currently about 5-6 cards over the limit, but this should still give you some ideas as to what to do with yours as well. Any feedback is appreciated on my own version!

Mardu Vampires

Commander / EDH* Delta-117


I'm currently leaning towards edgar markov as my commander although Licia, sanguine tribune I do admit looks like fun too.

Anyways the first thing I would start with here for your deck is improving the mana base a bit and taking out things like Orzhov Guildgate and swapping them for things like Godless Shrine, Shambling Vent, Concealed Courtyard, and what not. Same goes for the Urborg Volcano swapping for Blood Crypt and or Smoldering Marsh, and Foreboding Ruins. Some other lands to consider adding if you want to pay more on this deck include; Cabal Coffers & Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, fetchlands such as Marsh Flats, Arid Mesa, and Bloodstained Mire.

Additionally i'm sticking with the life subtheme, and strengthening it actually a bit by adding Exquisite Blood once I acquire one, Debt to the Deathless and or Exsanguinate, Aetherflux Reservoir, Felidar Guardian, and Alhammarret's Archive. Also while not being a vampire Rhox Faithmender could help even more with this kind of strategy, and you can get around them not being a vampire by running cards like Mephidross Vampire and Conspiracy.

Others to get for this are Bloodline Keeper, Necropolis Regent, Kalastria Highborn, Nirkana Revenant if you can afford it which would work great alongside previously mentioned Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, Cabal Coffers and furthermore Crypt Ghast, Magus of the Coffers etc.

I'm also likely using Anointed Procession in my deck, as I can't resist wanting to try that out alongside edgar markov's eminence ability, and other effects from Bloodline Keeper and Call the Bloodline. Then likewise I will be including cards that care about having a lot of creatures out preferably. So I will have Westvale Abbey  Flip, and things like Stensia Banquet, Sorin, Solemn Visitor, and possibly some other cards such as Vampiric Fury.

But I think I have written enough already and better come to an end, I do hope anyways some of this is of help to you!

I had actually been considering a jund deck myself to replace my energy deck later on.

I myself was thinking of trying something with the following cards:

The Scorpion God, Channeler Initiate, Abrade, Soul-Scar Mage, Chandra, Torch of Defiance, Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons, Fatal Push, Crocodile of the Crossing, maybe even Archfiend of Ifnir and some cycling lands.

This was a missed chance for them to reprint Chromatic Lantern, Prismatic Omen and Coalition Relic unfortunately.

Teferi's Protection perhaps?

August 11, 2017 1:05 p.m.

Utvara Hellkite, Scion of the Ur-Dragon and Fist of Suns are the only things of value RedUndead40.

It's a shame they didn't do Prismatic Omen since the cat deck got Mirari's Wake. Chromatic Lantern or even some lands like Clifftop Retreat would have been nice too.

Some interesting new cards coming for commander 2017.

August 10, 2017 3:53 p.m.

Does anyone think a card like Exquisite Blood would have a chance at a reprint in the vampire deck?
