Black has two great, although high CMC, boardwipe spells in Plague Wind and In Garruk's Wake. You might consider those if you play in a creature-heavy meta.

Dauthi Embrace and Dauthi Trapper are also some other considerations to getting your commander damage through. I run those in my Vorath deck. Cards like Lashwrithe and Nightmare Lash are also good staples to run in a swamp-heavy deck.

I like the build, and this is the first time I've seen that commander. Thanks for sharing it.

Ok, that should work for what I want to do. Thank you guys for all the help!

Ok, thanks a bunch. Now, just a clarification. Once the artifact returns to the battlefield, its just an artifact. So, will the -1/-1 counter fall off the artifact, since it isn't a creature?

July 20, 2017 5:55 a.m.

I have a question in regards to interactions with Cauldron of Souls and Karn, Silver Golem's ability to turn non-creature artifacts into creatures.

If I use Karn's ability to make several artifacts into artifact creatures, then activate the Cauldron's ability to give them persist, then sacrifice them for something, will those artifact cards return to the battlefield, even thought they aren't creatures anymore? Will they still have a -1/-1 counter on them? I don't think they would, because they would not be creatures anymore, but still wonder if the Cauldron's ability will work to bring them back.

I read through the rulings on Gatherer, but I wan't quite clear on this.

Thanks for the help.

No, I don't think it would be. But, it would be fun, once at least.

It sounds like you've got quite the task ahead of you, and your playing a much tighter deck than any I have, so kudos to you for the build. Best of luck, and keep us posted!

I like Martyr's Bond. Its almost a white Grave Pact.

Well, it sure wouldn't be fun to play against this one at all. But, it looks like your missing a few other staples, like Capsize, Force of Will, and Pact of Negation. Otherwise, looks like this one would be quite frustrating to play against. Are you looking at this as a 1v1, or group, or both?

I think with running 5 color, you should maybe look into some counters possibly? I also think there are some cards that let you search a player's library and remove cards, but the name doesn't come to mind. Something like that might also be helpful. In red, you could run a Chaos Warp perhaps.

Look into Nim Deathmantle and Thornbite Staff for some combo options. When I get a list put together, I'll share the link here if your ok with that.

Sounds good to me!

I guess any kitchen table would work, though....

Yeah, its just something to keep in mind. Anything that searches for a basic land won't be able to search those out, either. But they still look like solid additions.

I love this list! Looks like a ton of fun to play. I'm wanting to put together a Karn deck, as well, and this is going to help out a lot! Thanks!

I'm looking to do a Karn build myself. I was curious as to how this plays?

I don't disagree with you, enpc. It ins't a problem, really, there's just so much more out there than the turn 3 kill. Yes, it is a social setting, and I would call it a more casual format, too. But, I understand that there are the spikes out there who enjoy the game if they can decimate someone early, and that's cool if you are in a playgroup like that, and have the budget for those kinds of things.

Then there is the meta, and apparently, his playgroup likes to slow down those turn 3 wins by running hosers like Blood Moon and Magus of the Moon. So, you have to adjust to the meta, which means perhaps running a deck that is a touch less powerful. Or that appears to be less powerful, but allows you to win when you want to.

I don't mean any offense when I make that comment. None at all. When I think of playing Magic, I think of group games that involve lots of socializing and that build for a bit before someone goes off, but that's just me, and I know I'm not the only guy that plays Magic, so my opinion isn't really worth anything, other than some consideration.

I've only played very little competitive Magic, but have played tons of casual constructed in large groups. My funds are also very limited, so I have to build my decks accordingly, and fortunately have some good cards from years ago when I bought boxes and packs. So when I make a comment like that, that's just where I'm coming from. I'm not ragging on a guy for building a turn 3 win deck. I really think its cool, and wish I could do it.

Now, with all that said, it sounds to me like what Winterblast needs is to put together another deck, mono or two-colored, and make it just as powerful in a different way, so that Blood Moon and company don't hose it as bad. Adjust to the meta, and if they don't know which deck your playing, they can't hose you quite as bad.

They are Plains/Mountain, but they are not basic, so keep that in mind. Cards like Blood Moon will wreck them. With that said, I think they would make good additions to the deck. Thanks for spotting them, as I will likely add them to my maybeboard!

That is a good point, but Yavimaya Elder = 3 cards every time I sacrifice him. A draw, and then two lands. Put into play tapped = can't use it that turn. Two lands to my hand might mean I get a land drop I didn't have, or gives me the choice of swamp or forest, whatever I need. Also, with the Viridian Emissary, it can't self-sacrifice like the Elder and Steve can, which makes them much more valuable in the deck. I appreciate the suggestion, though!

Aura Shards might be of help. Paradise Mantle is a mana-producing equipment that I never see mentioned, and might help you here.

Really, though, perhaps you should cut the number of combos you have to focus on just a few, and then you can work in more options to combat the meta you have to face. You might have to run more basic lands. I saw you only run 31, and that seems really low, but I don't play the deck, so don't know.

I can understand wanting to win by turn 3 or 4, but, its Commander, and its supposed to be casual and fun, right?

Been looking through your list again. Jarad's Orders is another solid tutor for this deck, giving you a creature to play and one to pitch for Meren or whoever to bring back. Nice touch, and I'll look at adding it somewhere, if not just to switch out some of my stronger tutors for the flavor. I also want to add Buried Alive, but I'm just not sure where to put it yet. I've made some changes to my list, trying to make it more balanced with some removal and whatnot.

Last I checked, everything was legal at my kitchen table...
