Watch out! Ishkanah, Grafwidow has a black activated ability, which means it does not belong in your commander's colour identity.

Assault Formation beefs up your spiders very efficiently and has built-in pump, as well.

Kindred Summons is a very good way to flood the board of spiders quickly.

Coat of Arms is an outstanding finisher. I find it more effective than Eldrazi Monument.

Seasons Past is a great fit in this deck.

Sporeweb Weaver has tons of relevant text.

You're playing a lot fogs. Constant Mists seems better than Respite or Fog.

Why'd you have to go and mention Constant Mists? I said play fogs, not demon-spawn-cards!

I think there's almost always a better mana investment. Even Obscuring Haze isn't any good, epecially compared to even Flawless Maneuver.

The only fogs I think are worth their salt are Constant Mists and Dawnstrider.

I think that River Kelpie is a good card in this deck. I might take out the Constant Mists, as it’s all well and good to keep your planeswalkers protected, but with River Kelpie, you will draw into Spore Frog more often.

Constant Mists with a Crucible of Worlds + Life from the Loam package is fairly thematic and effective. A Crop Rotation to snag up your Glacial Chasm will do wonders when facing down those pesky aggro decks. I'm also a big fan of Wilderness Reclamation and Quest for Renewal (assuming you can add in more dorks) Noble Hierarch, Elvish Mystic, Llanowar Elves, Priest of Titania, Fyndhorn Elves and Avacyn's Pilgrim typically get the ball rolling consistently :)

CaptCreek on Xenagos: Party in a Can

Love the list, always good to meet a fellow party animal!

Personally, my list decided to leave out too many of the mana dorks, since I've found that on average they seem a little more fragile and low impact for my tastes. I'd much rather have cards that put extra lands into play, and the same goes for mana rocks (Aside from the couple that are too good not to run like Sol Ring, Mana Crypt, etc.) I've been having some pretty good success with this change, though I will say it can definitely feel a bit slower sometimes.

In place of the mana dorks, I've opted to add in more beefy threats since that's the deck's bread and butter in the first place. I love that with Xenagos, you really feel like you're always threatening, since at any point you can always just slap down another huge stompy beastie and be right where you were before.

Return of the Wildspeaker has been a GODsend in my games, cause the pump effect and instant speed make for a very flexible card, and for 5 mana? Yes please!

Also curious about how you feel about cards like Warstorm Surge, Stalking Vengeance and the new Terror of the Peaks? This is probably very meta dependent, but I do see a lot of value in having ways to win outside smashing people, because someone could have a Glacial Chasm or a Constant Mists or any other way to hose combat, so they add some reach to make sure you can still handle the nerds that want to pillowfort themselves.

Xenagos is my all-time favorite commander, and I'm always looking to find different perspectives to reflect upon my own deck. I've also been tweaking and tuning mine over the past couple of years, so it would be great if you wanted to take a look! I'm definitely a "75%" player, and I have a lot of fun with my friends, but my local meta at my LGS specifically does lean a little more heavily into the competitive scene and it can feel a little rough, even against their "Casual" decks.

Enough rambling! Here's mine: Xenagos's Party Animals

DeinoStinkus on theoretically worst deck

Using extra turns to counteract the effects of playing Constant Mists on your turn, which is used to protect cards like Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign that have attack abilities.

Alternatively, using Reconnaissance to trigger attack abilities for the victory.
