Heliod, God of Tanning

Commander / EDH plakjekaas


This deck uses Meekstone , Crackdown and Marble Titan in combination with Authority of the Consuls , Blind Obedience and Thalia, Heretic Cathar -like effects to neutralise most creatures, keeping them tapped down if they have power 3 or greater. This works especially well with Heliod, God of the Sun , because he gives your team vigilance, making sure your creatures are still able to attack.

The problem I have with Crackdown is that it is the very type of card I want to avoid.

It denys people from performing an action where I only want to tax and discourage.

most of your creatures don't get caught by Crackdown

How about Time of Need? Could be useful to throw an opponent off when they don't think you have the mana or speed to play and tap Sisay for another tutor, or when you need two in a turn.

Awakening is a risky play, but you may be able to make better use of it than your opponents. Quest for Renewal has a more limited scope, but you can put it to good use in this deck. And of course, there's Seedborn Muse.

You could also make advantageous use of Crackdown, since so many of your attackers are white.

Gideon, Martial Paragon gets you another tutor and buffs your field, and is also tutorable with Sisay. Nissa, Genesis Mage is similar, but helps you mid-game ramp.

Staff of Domination has many uses. Also, Paradox Engine, because I assume you like winning?

Entrapment Maneuver . I second the motion for Cathars' Crusade and Call the Coppercoats

Recruit the Worthy is cute if you have spare mana or need an instant speed blocker.

Azeworai, Crackdown actually looks fantastic. Such a great mention. I haven't seen that card before.

Abolish also looks interesting. I've added that to my scratchpad and it's up for consideration.

I had considered Mass Calcify, but figured I'd go with Wrath of God instead. It's really there to help me against early board pressure. I'm still undecided though. It would definitely be to my advantage to play Mass Calcify to preserve my own board, but it is kind of costly. I've actually been thinking about Catastrophe, but not sure if I want another land removal card.

The artifacts you mention are nice, but I can't find room for them :(.

I've made a few changes since you last looked at the list and included Crackdown :)

Ok if you're gonna go into legacy there is a huge pool of cards that you can use (I'm more of a modern guy myself so I'm not super experienced with this but I'll try to help as much as I can). First off, Swords to Plowshares best white removal in legacy im pretty sure. You could only run a singleton of Blood Moon and two Shared Animosity to make space for a bunch of Enlightened Tutors which can also fetch later sideboard hate like Suppression Field, Rest in Peace, Stony Silence, Crackdown, etc. Not sure if you want to go in that direction though. Pyroblast/Red Elemental Blast are great for sb but also pretty good in mainboard since everyone sucks Brainstorms and Force of Wills dick in legacy as far as I can tell.

Mana costs don't seem too restrictive, but adding some dual lands would help consistency a lot. If you have no budget, there's shit like original duals and fetch lands. Other options are shock lands, check lands, fast lands, filter lands, horizon canopy lands, scry lands, etc. There's also stuff like Karakas and Ancient Tomb that everyone runs for some reason. Maybe Cavern of Souls for goats? although you only have a few actual goat creatures so it won't be great.
