Blind Obedience Discussion
1 week ago
I would say 1v1 games are unfavorable for Marisi, but it's still a decent body that silences the opponent during combat. And you still force utility creatures to attack leaving opponents in difficult situations . If you want to play explosive 1v1 matches, you should look into the new Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin (just imagine with Claws of Valakut or Stoneforge Masterwork haha) or Omnath, Locus of Rage . But against regular match ups I guess Marisi stands some chance.
But thanks for the interest! I hope I have inspired you on something

I don’t think you can run Blind Obedience due to the black mana cost, otherwise, very nice!

I'm not sure about Divine Visitation . You have some token engines, but I prefer visitation in a harder token shell. I might play something like Blind Obedience in its place to slowly bleed out your opponents.

Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help.
Nice upgrade of the precon. Cards to consider cutting to make 100 cards:
- Contagion Engine
- Contagion Clasp
- Righteous Aura
- Seal of the Guildpact
- Helm of the Gods
- Champion's Helm
- Thoughtrender Lamia
Proliferate isn't doing much here except giving you more experience counters and that's not worth it instead play more enchantments to get experience counters?
Consider adding more low mana cost enchantments to get experience counters faster? Flickering Ward is very good because it's one mana enchantment that can be an engine to get experience counters while also protecting Daxos from targeted removal from the color of protection you choose. Also excellent with Mesa as a draw engine. Kaya's Ghostform another one mana enchantment that can help to pseudo protect Daxos by reanimating him when he dies or is exiled. Because Daxos is only three mana and he can be a repeatable source of tokens then consider less creatures? Board wipes that kill all creatures are good with enchantment strategies and with a Commander who can create creatures after a wipe.
Can add enchantments to protect/reanimate Daxos from your own or opponents' board wipes:
Tutors that don't break the bank that can get an aura/enchantment are helpful:
Expanding on enchantments that disrupt your opponents can buy you more time to get experience counters and make Spirits:
Once you have a lot of experience counters then you don't need to really cast lots of enchantments. Can instead utilize Daxos's ability to make creatures without casting them. Which is good with enchantments that only let players play one spell per turn. This disrupts your opponents more than you and in some cases shuts down entire opponent strategies like combos:
Good luck with your deck.

The first thing I notice is that your mana rocks are less than ideal. The Talisman cycle is good, and I'm glad you included it; however, Chromatic Lantern is a questionable inclusion. You have a lot of non-basic lands to help your mana-fixing situation, and three-mana rocks are significantly worse than two-mana rocks. I think you'd be better off running Orzhov Signet , Mind Stone , Fellwar Stone or even Thought Vessel .
Gamble is an excellent tutor for any red deck, and I think you should strongly consider running it. Enlightened Tutor is expensive, but it'll help tutor up some of the curses you want to use. Similarly, Replenish is an expensive card, but it has a Second Sunrise effect without the requirement to cast it on the turn an opponent died. Academy Rector helps grab Overwhelming Splendor early.
I think Ancient Tomb is (almost) strictly better than Ancient Tomb . If you have access, you should try swapping them. Prismatic Vista is way better than Evolving Wilds , so you should run it if you can. Silent Clearing is good in addition to your Sunbaked Canyon . You have a bunch of double-colored-mana-costs; consider running Reflecting Pool as a sort of ETB untapped tri-land.
Card-draw/selection is at a premium in EDH. Consider Painful Truths , Night's Whisper , Read the Bones , Twilight Prophet and Faithless Looting . In all likelihood, your general and Phyrexian Arena will take care of most of your card draw; however, having a few other sources of card advantage is good.
Crackling Doom is a Mardu card I always liked -- it acts as a 3-for-1 in most games, and aims at the fattest creatures your opponents have. Fire Covenant , Ashes to Ashes and By Force are similar X-for-1s. Despark is an interesting removal spell, and may be great depending on your meta.
Blind Obedience is good as a source of life and as a stax piece. It hoses a lot of decks, including mine (I play artifact-based storm), and has generally impressed me.
Reanimation enchantments may be interesting with all your enchantment recursion. Being able to repeatedly cast Animate Dead , Dance of the Dead or Necromancy seems pretty good, especially if you have ETB or death-triggers on the creatures you target. Your Sun Titan and Bitterheart Witch are pretty good with the reanimation cards; adding Grave Titan or Massacre Wurm would make it better.
Alright. That's all from me. Good luck!

First of all, thank you for including the budget in your deck description. It helps me to know what kinds of cards to suggest.
Swords to Plowshares is one of the few one-for-ones I think should be regularly run in EDH -- you should include it in this list. It is easily better than Path to Exile , as the ramp is significant in a format like EDH, where people are always trying to do big things. Ashes to Ashes is another good piece of removal, as it kills two things with one card; Kaya's Guile is similar. Despark is worth considering, if only because of its versatility.
Entomb is 7-odd dollars these days, and if you pair it with Animate Dead , Unburial Rites , Reanimate or Dance of the Dead you can cheat out a fatty like your Harvester of Souls or Sheoldred, Whispering One nice and early. Buried Alive is similar to Entomb . Consider an Ashen Rider or Grave Titan as other reanimation targets.
Caves of Koilos is a good enters-untapped land to consider, as is Isolated Chapel . Shambling Vent , Command Tower and possibly Godless Shrine or Silent Clearing are also worth considering. Speaking of lands, I think you're running too many. Thirty-three lands is generally about where you want to be -- thirty-eight is generally only appropriate in landfall-style, Azusa, Lost but Seeking -type decks. Including more mana-rocks like Mind Stone , Coldsteel Heart , the soon-to-come-out Arcane Signet , Fellwar Stone or Prismatic Lens is also worth considering.
Blind Obedience is a good way to slow down your opponents while providing a way to recoup life you pay to your Necropotence or similar. Blood Artist and Cruel Celebrant are also good cards in the vein of draining opponents.
Card advantage is a big deal in EDH. Phyrexian Arena is worth considering, even if it is a big expensive these days; Twilight Prophet is similar. Night's Whisper and Ambition's Cost are good one-shot draw-spells.
Dawn of Hope is worth considering, especially if you also choose to add Mentor of the Meek . Having tokens to sac with Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim 's abilities (especially the second one) is good. Which brings me to recursive creatures: Having creatures who return themselves to the board will make Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim that much stronger. Nether Traitor , Reassembling Skeleton and Bloodsoaked Champion are worth considering.
Mother of Runes is a good way to protect your creatures from spot-removal. Similarly, hatebears like Thalia, Guardian of Thraben , Vryn Wingmare , Glowrider , Aven Mindcensor or Leonin Arbiter . Smallpox is a card I really love in EDH, and its daddy Pox is worth a nod of consideration as well -- I do think Smallpox is the better of the two though.
If you choose to run Snow-Covered Plains and Snow-Covered Swamp s instead of regular basics, you can run Dead of Winter as a pretty powerful boardwipe that gets around Gaddock Teeg . Planar Cleansing is also worth consideration.
Fiend Hunter is an interesting card I thought of when I looked at this deck. Sac-ing him with the exile trigger on the stack makes the 'return to battlefield' resolve first, resulting in a permanent exile effect. This may be too marginal a synergy to include, but I figured it'd be worth at least mentioning.
Right. That's all from me, at least as far as I can think right now. Good luck with deck building!

its alot, but the following cards i would consider to be your Voltron support. this would mean we are including A LOT of enchantments. I have found as much synergy as i could, but im sure its food for thought. Trophy Mage , Heliod's Pilgrim , Bruna, Light of Alabaster , Sram, Senior Edificer , Sovereigns of Lost Alara , Invocation of Saint Traft , Danitha Capashen, Paragon , Silverblade Paladin , Blackblade Reforged , Sword of the Animist , Swiftfoot Boots (for the haste), Ethereal Armor , Holy Mantle , Shielded by Faith , Daybreak Coronet , Mesa Enchantress (if you go heavier on enchantments), Trailblazer's Boots (OP OP in EDH),
Approach of the Second Sun can win a game out of nowhere
