Arrest

Enchantment — Aura

Enchant creature

Enchanted creature can't attack or block, and its activated abilities can't be activated.

VensersJournalist on why hasnt titan been banned

I think it mainly has to do with the fact that although Primeval Titan is very powerful and can be either ramped into or cheated into play as soon as turn 3, it is a creature that is easy to interact with, and it has nothing built into it that makes the card itself easier to cast (like delve or convoke).

Because it doesn’t have hexproof, shroud, or any type of built-in graveyard recursion, you can do any of the following:

  • counter it

  • destroy it

  • exile it

  • enchant it (think Arrest type enchantments)

  • take control of it

It may seem hard to believe, but that does make it “balanced” in a certain sense.

TypicalTimmy the best removals are actually the Arrest enchantments. Your examples give them an indestructible chump blocker and a land for ramp as well.

Enchantment - Aura

Enchanted creature can't attack or block, and it's activated abilities can't be activated


Basically a color shifted version of Arrest, as well as others in White. Doesn't necessarily match the colors, but doesn't necessarily not match the others either. Also, for those not familiar, this is an old, classic spell from D&D.

Next challenge, make a creature that has some kind of bonus from gaining levels in its class (example: a Rogue who gets some kind of benefit from having/gaining levels in Rogue Class, or a Wizard who gets a benefit for having/gaining levels in Wizard Class, etc.)

Love the deck! I have a few suggestions for cards that could be cut and some suggestions for what might replace them. I tried the keep the suggested cards reasonably priced. I have a few of them in my binder that I will give you next time we play.

Suggested removal - Most of these cards I figured could be easily upgraded with cards that add more value, utility, stax, or interaction:

smack80, you are right on Breathstealer's Crypt. That would be nicely oppressive. Zur can't fetch it, which is unfortunate, but it doesn't mean it's not worth playing.

There are a couple reasons I prefer Arrest over Imprisoned in the Moon - I've seen too many people blow up their own commander using land destruction. Now, on the topic of Darksteel Mutation, you are probably right. That's an easy swap.

Heyya Tanman, taking a look at the list and I have some broad critiques and some smaller ones. Let's start big.

  • You don't have enough +1/+1 counter cards to make it worth including payoffs for.

  • If you're playing infect, you're gonna need evasion, because no one in their right mind just lets an infect creature through, and honestly they're pretty small bois to begin with. Fleshing out the +1 counter package may help with this, big creatures are more troublesome to block and effects like Tuskguard Captain and Abzan Falconer can provide evasion beyond just being big and chunky.

  • You could do with a bit more ramp and a LOT more card draw.

  • Cards that are probably cuttable include:

Melira, Sylvok Outcast: This synergizes with Phyrexian Unlife, yes, but what else does it do? I don't think this card does enough to justify ots inclusion.

Oko, the Trickster: I see this walker being cast for 6 mana, putting two +1 counters on one of your dudes, and immediately being focused to death by the rest of the table because its ult wins the game. You'd honestly be better off with Citadel Siege, it's harder to kill.

Arrest, Luminous Bonds, and Pacifism: in our meta, with so many creatures that either don't need to attack or can just be sacrificed, you're better off using kill spells like Mortify, Putrefy, or Swords to Plowshares (especially Swords bc exile beats recursion).

Grave Betrayal: such a sweet card, but much too slow.

Omen of the Dead and Omen of the Hunt: neither of these really do anything to further your gameplan. The fact that they're enchantments doesn't matter to this deck, and there are stronger recursion and ramp options.

Sunbond: There are 5 cards in this entire deck that gain you life. Goes great with your commander but there are a lot of things I'd rather spend my turn 4 on.

Courage in Crisis: Three whole mana for this effect? It's not a horrible card, but definitely inefficient.

Debt to the Deathless: This card would only be okay if damage was your primary win condition. As is? Not good.

Duneblast: The 7-mana slot may not be ideal for a wrath? Maybe this one is fine tho, idk.

Planewide Celebration: 7 mana to proliferate four times? No.

Storm Herd: Once again, this might be fine if damage was your wincon. You'd get a bunch of evasive attackers. As is? Probably not good.

Insidious Will and Memory Drain: probably go for cheaper counterspells, like Disdainful Stroke, Negate, or Essence Scatter.

Altogether though, great first deck, this would've kicked the crap out of my old Marath build back in the day.

As far as menace creatures go, I like Dreamstealer or Kheru Mind-Eater to deny the opponent of additional creatures. Red is also well known for menace since you gain access to Labyrinth Raptor, Sonorous Howlbonder, and the odd Sin Prodder. It also has a bomb in Master of Cruelties that benefits from a lack of blockers. Silent Arbiter can accomplish a similar goal to your auras when attacking if you don't mind embracing an exalted style, possibly via Sublime Archangel.

Another option could be to embrace the large number of auras with synergetic cards like Eidolon of Countless Battles, Kor Spiritdancer, and Sage's Reverie. Some other Arrest options I like are Pillory of the Sleepless, Prison Term, or the cheap Demotion.
