I actually think you want some cheaper removal all around. I havent played Pauper in 5 years but back then the common decks were Aggro, Hexproof (boggles? Basically hexproof with enchantments), MBC, Mono blue control and others.

Cruel Edict/Diabolic Edict. Some people prefer the instant speed, others prefer flashback. Also note, Geth's Verdict

I would cut 1 drinker and 1 agent for 2x Phyrexian Rager to help you maintain gas in the late game. or 1x rager and 1x Gurmag Angler as a beater for late game.

Maybe consider Blood Fountain for longer games against removal-heavy decks?

Blightsteel Colossus, Spinebiter & Phyrexian Swarmlord don't really do much for the mana investment imo. Runic Armasaur on the other hand could potentially draw you a bunch of cards per game!

Also, is there a particular reason you haven't included Flux Channeler? It's a work horse of a card in this deck imo.

Is Opposition Agent better than Aven Mindcensor? (aven is more evasive tho)

depends on what you want, Aven is a better beater but, Agent is card advantage.

Make a cut for Teferi's Ageless Insight (I cut Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite. Archfiend of Ifnir is a good one sided wipe in this deck)

Serra Paragon<Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite, Norn helps the go wide

More 1 drop creature and more legendary creature suggestions are welcome. (legendary creatures take advantage of Gold-Forged Thopteryx etc).

Iron Apprentice, Krydle of Baldur's Gate, Benthic Biomancer, Cosi's Trickster, Judge's Familiar

Less counter spells required due to many protection spells in deck.

Glen Elendra Archmage w/connive you can keep her online

Consider Rhystic Study (slows my creature attack strat. But op... Gix, Yawgmoth Praetor in its place for now)

Rhystic Study gains table aggro, Gix, Yawgmoth Praetor gets your opponents to look at each other

Weak to oppo swing back. Solutions include war tax effects and vigilance.

Luke the Warrior

Legendary Creature - Mouse Warrior

When Luke the Warrior enters the battlefield, create two 1/1 green Mouse creature tokens.

Other Mouse and Squirrel creatures you control have hexproof.

Whenever another creature you control dies, until the end of your next turn, Luke the Warrior gets +2/+2 and must attack if able.


"A coward dies a thousand times, but a warrior dies only once."

If this becomes a Universes Beyond, I might not be able to resist. Luke probably won't show up, but there will be enough.

Anyway, create a Rat.

Toha, the Prehistoric? I'm not familiar with that one...

So the goal is to turn the game into an automatic and independent system. Seems like a long shot, where you get exactly the right cards with minimal disruption. Still, I like the idea.

As far as the commander goes, since it's not critical for the deck's function, I think any five-color option will be more or less usable. How about Garth One-Eye for some more interaction? Progenitus would make a statement, too.

Glad to see some suggestions went through. Like you said to the prior user, let me know how your games go. Deserted temple is also useful politics!

Have you thought of swapping out Scour of Existence for Spine of Ish Sah? It really comes down to if you need the exile for GY/Indestructible meta and if you consistently can hold up 7 mana. Spine is reuseable, double triggers with Strionic Resonator + Lithiform engine.

Since you're running Maralen of the Mornsong you can run Opposition Agent for the combo, and it's also another great way to control un black.

Nice deck friend :)

I've considered Changeling Outcast. I stuck with Ichor Drinker over it because it's got lifelink and can make a 2/2 later plus the synergy that artifact has with Deadly Dispute made it the better choice

You need to read about Alex Churchills MTG Turing machine. Its originally a Legacy deck, but I took out the multiples and added lands to see if it would play as a commander deck. Just need a proper 5 color commander like maybe Toha, The Prehistoric or The Prismatic Bridge.

To be completely honest, as somebody who writes and publishes fiction for fun, this makes me feel awesome about AI : ) It's not that it's bad or anything, and I absolutely understand an application like this where you might just brew a deck for yourself and just want an effective description available for it.

I don't know, I guess I just see this kind of thing as a tool and the more I see of it is like, yeah it has it's uses, but it also absolutely has it's limits. It reminds me of those things you see that are like "75 tools in one", because sure that's useful, and maybe it's just me being old-school, but I'll always probably be lugging around those 75 individual tools : )

It looks like you have two copies of Odric, Lunarch Marshal, but I'm guessing you meant to run Odric, Master Tactician as the second?

I'd recommend checking out Flowering of the White Tree, Rising of the Day as some helpful anthems, as well as Minas Tirith as another utility land. The new Lord of the Rings set has lots of Legends matter support, more so intended for the Ringbearer mechanic, but is gas for Shanid, Dihada, and other Legends matter commanders.

So it is at 68 cards which is still larger than id like, but after some playtesting, it actually runs pretty well. Will it win in any tournament anytime soon? Probably not. Is it fun to play and does it bring me joy to have lots of cats? ABSOLUTELY. My friends like playing against it and it may not win every time but it does its job in my scene. The comments posted really helped so thank you <3. Here is to more fun matches!

Thornbite Staff

Hooded Blightfang

Halana, Kessig Ranger

Thornbite is another pinger but even better since you can uptap when a creature dies.
Hooded Blightfang makes attacking with all your deathtouch creatures really hurt. I think Halana fits here if it can be stacked so that the creature gets deathtouch first then it does its damage to another creature.

KongMing very true. I should definitely consider insight.

Though looter is on theme, it seems under powered. Dauthi Voidwalker is sort of in its place. But that may be a blind spot of mine. Thanks!

Love it! Recently built Kadena myself! Curious about your thoughts on cards like Ebonblade Reaper in there. Going to swing with it as a morph will negate us losing life, but flipping it over if the opponent doesn’t block it will take half of theirs!

DreadKhan on Rakdos Santa Deck

Well, here is what I found: Anarchist, which seems over costed but will leave you a body you can Blim away, Ardent Elementalist is similar but 1 mana less. Backdraft Hellkite can let you Flashback Offering, but that's one and done as it's exiled after. Biblioplex Assistant has Flying, but that's a bad thing to give an opponent obviously. Bloodthirsty Adversary is another one off. Charmbreaker Devils are one of the more interesting ones, but it's awfully clunky. Efreet Flamepainter seems half-decent, but isn't repeatable. I'm a bit curious if Finale of Promise would work at all, it's annoying that you'd need both types, but if you can copy a Dark Ritual/Seething Song and Harmless Offering you can still do more stuff after. Invoke Calamity might be a fit, it's a lot of mana but is a strong effect. Goblin Dark-Dwellers is a beefy body but probably not something you'd want to donate after. I'm not sure if you could get in for damage with the spell-creature, but if you can Magar of the Magic Strings is pretty interesting. If you can get enough mana together Mizzix's Mastery might work, 4 mana to recast a 3 mana spell isn't terrible I'd say. Ogre Battlecaster might do it's thing more than once with First Strike. I'm not sure if Shreds of Sanity is reasonable, 2R is pretty cheap for this, but having to discard sucks. Revolutionist seems openly bad unless you can cast it via Madness. Spellweaver Helix is cool but might be too janky, but it can generate more Offerings (and another Sorcery I guess). I don't think you have a wide enough board to use it, but if you added more creatures then Surge to Victory could fit. Hope something in that pile I could dig out will work, there are some really pushed options like Yawgmoth's Will and Underworld Breach too fwiw, I guess you could Blim away Breach when you're done with it?

Random thought, but if you're fine with recursion effects maybe Oriq Loremage would fit in here? Probably would require more building around though, but Entomb is a great effect to have stapled to a creature if you've got the right cards.

legendofa on New hubs to be added

15 hours ago

My current proposal is to split the Aikido hub into two. The current Aikido hub will become Redirection, which will include Deflecting Palm and Swerve effects. The new hub will be Theft, which will broadly cover both Threaten and Control Magic effects. If nobody objects (and please share your opinion, if you have one on either side), I will get this done tomorrow. This will be a trial run to see how these hubs get used. If they seem to be intuitive and popular, then they'll be locked in. If they seem to be causing confusion, I'll mess around with them some more.

Menagerie Keysnatcher

Creature - Mouse Warrior


Whenever ~ deals combat damage to a player, you may put a creature card with Mana Value X or less from your hand onto the battlefield, where X is the amount of damage ~ dealt to that player.


Being conscious and someone being conscious of you sometimes don't allign. Being the size of a thumb helps a lot with that.

Blade of the Oni is bad because most of your creatures already have decent power and toughness. It works best in a deck with tiny creatures

Charmbreaker Devils you need a few additional spells for this to work. I suggest adding Mizzium Mortars and Terminate

Altar of Bhaal this is best with enters the battlefield effects, which you don't play many

Arcane Signet this does nothing without Commander. Replace this with Rakdos Signet

Bolas's Citadel this is a suicide in a deck with high mana costs like yours. Replace this with Phyrexian Arena

Guardian Idol this is weak creature, and bad fixing. Play Talisman of Indulgence instead

Rakdos Locket I suggest Rakdos Keyrune instead

Davriel, Soul Broker this card is not legal. If you like the theme of devils, play Tibalt, Rakish Instigator
