Command the Dreadhorde Discussion

multimedia on EDH Under $1 - Hapatra ...

Hey, Hapatra is a good choice. Some cards to consider that meet the budget restraints that might not seem as obvious:

Might want to consider some mass reanimation. Rally the Ancestors and Command the Dreadhorde are good budget options.

I understand that budget is a thing, so I'll try to keep that in mind throughout this comment.

First, I'd recommend Caged Sun over any mana rocks that you currently have. It's a strong card that only helps you.

Also, you need some interaction that's more than just Yawgy boi. I recommend Defile and Mutilate as they are both relatively cheap. Possibly even grab a Cast Down or Price of Fame .

Last, you need some recursion. You're playing mono black after all! If you can, throw in a Reanimate , Command the Dreadhorde , and Chainer, Dementia Master ! It'll help a lot. Possibly throw in a Phyrexian Reclamation for recursion to hand if you need it.

Best of luck!

bossomus Thank you for the suggestions!

Smothering Tithe is a great card that I am sure I could find some room for. I also wanted to thank you for suggesting Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Cleansing Nova . These are cards I have never seen before and will need to consider for the deck. At the moment, Merciless Eviction feels slightly better for me, since I have more choices, and many artifacts myself that can be hit. Caged Sun is always a great idea in ramping decks. And Command the Dreadhorde I had not yet considered, but would work immensely well just as you said.

Consider adding Cleansing Nova as it can function similar to Merciless Eviction except cheaper and allowing you to destroy both artifacts and enchantments.

I'd also consider adding Caged Sun as it functions similar to Crypt Ghast .

I'd also consider adding Command the Dreadhorde . It gives you an outlet for all the life you've gained plus can recur all of your creatures if a boardwipe happens.

Lastly, I'd add Mikaeus, the Unhallowed . He gives most of your stuff undying which is just value.

Maybe I'm missing something but you look rather light on win cons for something with only Spark Harvest as control. It looks like you're not milling your opponents most of the time so you are relying on Syr Konrad, the Grim , some small creatures and a single Command the Dreadhorde to have any kind of board presence. I can definitely see turns 7+ being nuts once your yard is full, you start looping stuff and Syr can do something without being btfo'ed by removal/planeswalkers/bounce/discard/etc. The trouble is aggro will kill you before that happens, control will snipe the win cons and field decks will go over the top.

I'd suggest thinking about what your early game looks like a little. Tyrant's Scorn is a removal spell that gives you options with bouncing secret keepers for more milling and Drowned Secrets triggers. Thought Erasure is the best thing a combo deck can do on turn two while also enabling the surveil package. Overwhelmed Apprentice is something to do on turn 1 that enables some of the mill payoffs while also filtering and being a body to block/sacrifice.

Ashiok, Dream Render on SB to negate a lot of meta decks right now. And I'd put in a copy of Leyline of Sanctity for those pesky control match ups for your SB.

Confused what your win-con is might wana throw in a one off Liliana, Dreadhorde General .

Confused by your large amounts of trinkets? You have basically the foundation of Dance of the Manse and with your golden egg you could run a copy or two without adding additional colors. This is also a win-con.

Finally Command the Dreadhorde seems to have a place here if nowhere else than your SB.

nice deck -- orzhov version of the Dance of Mance esper set but I still think it needs a win con and you should really think about what value the trinkets have here?

Leodragon67890 Just got it today and played a game with a few other people - it's pretty awesome! Won a game by board-wiping with Last One Standing and then using Command the Dreadhorde to take everything and swing over the next few turns. Second game was a little rougher, everyone kept wiping the board and commander tax got way too high on Chainer, Nightmare Adept but I needed him so I kept casting him. Deck definitely gets weaker the more he's removed, but he's not a huge threat on his own so I feel like most people overlook him. Deck could probably use a bit of protection for him, though.
