Austere Command Discussion

multimedia on Ghired Populate

3 weeks ago

Hey, consider Eldrazi Displacer with Ghired? Repeatable blink at instant speed, more Rhino tokens, protects Ghired in combat after he attacks, can tap down an opponent's blocker or remove an attacker, can protect Ghired from targeted removal, blink another creature who has an ETB trigger, etc. You will have to build the manabase around and use mana rocks for colorless mana sources for Displacer, but in my opinion it's worth it because you're not adding bad cards just for Displacer. Crop Rotation is helpful to tutor for a land that can make colorless.


Zealous Conscripts combos with Kiki to attack with infinite Conscript tokens. Quartzwood Crasher and Court of Grace are excellent repeatable token sources. Open the Armory, Idyllic Tutor, Eladamri's Call, Chord of Calling are tutors with prices that are within the budget.

Nature's Lore and Three Visits are two drop land ramp for a Forest dual land. Swords to Plowshares, Beast Within, Heliod's Intervention are helpful instant removal spells. Austere Command is a versatile board wipe.

Eternal Witness is good card recursion especially with Displacer. Feldon of the Third Path can create a token of any creature in your graveyard to then populate that token with Ghired. If you control Ghired Akroma's Will can wreck your opponents with your token army.

If interested I offer more advice in another comment including suggestions of cards to cut. Good luck with your deck.

Omniscience_is_life on Court of Grace, the best …

Peligrad I think it's important to count up just how many cards Court of Grace will draw you over the course of a game... let's imagine you get the Court by T4. Good start, not impossible by any means. Let's also say we choose to cast it over Solemn Simulacrum, Smothering Tithe, or Alms Collector--or even a three-drop like Burnished Hart, or Generous Gift. All that said, let's go with that we cast CoG on T4. We draw one card off it. Move to T5, people have likely stopped ramping (in a typical EDH game) and are now building value engines: such as Thassa, Deep-Dwelling and Mulldrifter. You are now drawing 1 (maybe) card to that players' 2, and you have a target on your back because of your flyers. T6, what's that? Austere Command, Bane of Progress, Cleansing Nova, Tranquility, Child of Alara, or Nevinyrral's Disk? Darn!

Great start! There are a few categories of stuff I would add, I will start with budget options:

Ramp - Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Farseek, Rampant Growth will fix your colors.

Removal - Reclamation Sage, Swords to Plowshares, Austere Command, Wrath of God, Wear / Tear, Sundering Growth

Card Draw - Guardian Project, Shamanic Revelation, Beast Whisperer. Lifecrafter's Bestiary

Lands - Cinder Glade, Canopy Vista

Win Conditions: Overwhelming Stampede, Chord of Calling to tutor out a win

Other good cards: Swiftfoot Boots, Lightning Greaves, Rootborn Defenses

Other good cards, but not as budge

Xenagos, God of Revels, Token Doublers Anointed Procession, Coat of Arms, Heroic Intervention,

Cards to Consider Cutting:

Veteran Warleader, Shanna, Sisay's Legacy, Gruul War Plow, Ajani, Inspiring Leader

That is all for now, but I can suggest more later.

Doombeard1984 on Slivers... Because someone has to be that guy

lil_cheez thanks for dropping by Hive. Your suggestion seems pretty legit, but I have designed my deck in such a way that I am always trying to progress towards my win cons, whilst denying spells to my opponents using counterspells like Pact of Negation, Mana Drain and Voidslime. If the board gets to sketchy I can then also blow up the board with mass removal like Austere Command and Blasphemous Act and pinpoint with Necrotic Sliver. Also, with Crib Swap they get a "sliver token". Usually a token is not a big deal. A token with that many abilities can be something pretty scary.

Thanks for the upvote.

So, do you have or are you looking at building a sliver deck?

Hiya! Obviously Sword of Fire and Ice and Sword of Feast and Famine are obvious expensive upgrades for this deck. Seeing that you have a free equip in the command zone, I think the one thing this deck is missing is more interaction together with a Sunforger. The commander free spells like Deflecting Swat and Flawless Maneuver are phenomenal. Boros Charm is also a really important spell than can protect even your artifacts. Then there are board wipes that would be really useful when you're behind. Blasphemous Act is really good if you can give your creatures protection from red (which is easy with a sword). Winds of Abandon doubles as a one-sided board wipe and single target removal. Austere Command is flexible enough to only hurt opponents in your deck.

Cool take on the deck, I think you're going with a light cat subtheme? But I see some issues with the list: Elbrus, the Binding Blade  Flip's color identity is black, so it doesn't follow normal commander rules; Emeria Shepherd seems to be a bit too expensive to run with 35 lands; I'd suggest putting in Auriok Steelshaper, seing as you run several creatures that want to be equipped; you might want to include artifact and enchantment wipes, even though it'd seem counterproductive to do so in a deck like this- cards like Austere Command and Cleansing Nova. Happy tapping! :p
