Agent of the Iron Throne

Legendary Enchantment — Background

Commander creatures you own have "Whenever an artifact or creature you control is put into a graveyard from the battlefield, each opponent loses 1 life."

I don’t wanna be picky, but that are more than your suggested 5 non-land cards from other sets (Agent of the Iron Throne, Putrefy, Mortality Spear, Netherborn Altar, Cranial Plating, Disciple of the Vault).

What do you think abiut using Call of the Ring. It provides constantly card-draw at a neglectable cost and constantly tempting triggers. Galadriel, Gift-Giver and Horn of the Mark can do some work.

May i ask you the reason of cutting Merry, Warden of Isengard? You will automatically tutoring him/Pippin, Warden of Isengard if you cast the other. Kinda-Cantrip.

But i like your approach. I restricted myself to up to 10 non-LotR cycle cards (lands too, currently used 9). Maybe we can share some thought?

Hi there! I think you might have a smoother time playing Burakos, Party Leader / Folk Hero as your commander. I also bought and upgraded the Party Time precon, and initially tried it with Nalia de'Arnise as the commander. I've found having Burakos at the helm and leaning more heavily into the Party focus can make for a very fun and resilient build.

You have a lot of strong and higher mana costed cards, so having some Treasure production in your command zone will help you cast some of your bigger spells more consistently if you decide to keep your deck in its current form.

All that being said, I think that although you have many strong cards in your deck, it does lack some cohesion and synergy. Although you have Maskwood Nexus in deck to turn all your creatures into Party members, you may not always draw it or tutor it out, so having your creatures be primarily be Party classes will help with consistency, regardless if Nalia or Burakos is the commander.

Having Burakos and even a couple Party creatures can have you pumping out 1-4 treasure per combat, which is nothing to scoff at. This opens up additional alternate win-cons like Revel in Riches, and creates some fun synergy with things like Agent of the Iron Throne, Disciple of the Vault, and Marionette Master.

Aceh: hi, sorry I didn't get around to responding to this until now. Bontu will be going in shortly, and in fact I bought one a while ago for this purpose! I just haven't gotten around to updating it. Other new additions are going to be Agent of the Iron Throne, Dark Ritual, Braids, Arisen Nightmare, and Malakir Rebirth  Flip.

I haven't taken a solid look at them all yet but a few seemed pretty neat. I think a lot of folks just like to build 3 color decks mostly. Maybe I'm wrong though.

Cultist of the Absolute

Haunted One

Agent of the Iron Throne

All seem like they could be pretty good if paired up well.

Updated for Baldur's Gate! Ghost Lantern and Agent of the Iron Throne barely missed the cut. Im still interested in trying to see if I can fit them in at some point. Ghost Lantern is pretty interesting with it's Adventure Effect. Agent of the Iron Throne provides an extra death trigger ping which is something im always trying to pack more into.

     elliotmward97: I think they're both pretty good!

     Agent of the Iron Throne will likely be a little more impactful in this deck, but I'm definitely going to try both of them.

     elliotmward97: So in the end, I actually cut Cunning Rhetoric for Imperial Recruiter. I was looking really hard at Mayhem Devil but thought it would be better to cut it for Agent of the Iron Throne once I pick one up.

     Rhetoric is good, but similar to other cards we've talked about in that it requires participation on behalf of my opponents.

Why not use Agent of the Iron Throne background? It would streamline your combo considerably and I am not sure ward really protects the combo that much as the reanimation parts are not protected.
