Dakkon Blackblade Discussion
2 months ago
The set of Legends introduced both Legendary creatures and multi-coloured cards into the game. More important is the second for the sake of this comment.
Lady Evangela bears the mana cost of .
All of the two-colour combinations (except for Rakdos ?) are backwards from what we see today, yet are all constant.
(Legends had Jedit Ojanen ())
My concensus here is that WOTC did not have much of a grasp as to amounts and mana costs in the debut set, whereupon inconsistencies may be seen about the expansion, yet they righted this two releases later.
Not much is actually in this comment, but others may use this information as they wish to sieve through Magic's multi-coloured monstrosities.

Mcat1999 - No, please. I welcome any commentary, and I am more than fain to describe my deck building. I stopped using the description for strategy analysis in favour of my turgid writing style some while agone.
So, I enjoy building older commanders, but synergizing can be a little difficult. This is especially prominent in the set Legends. From merely perusing all of them, they are not too powerful and lack much in their colour identity. (As examples, Dakkon cares about lands in Esper and Xira Arien forcing card draw in Jund.) With Halfdane , I had to build an Esper deck that abuses power and toughness.
Due to the general not having Red or Green, I am forced to be creative. The thing I went to immediately were creatures that acquired different stat-lines regarding board states, such as Consuming Aberration . A fair number uses the number of cards I have in hand to tell (around sixteen total in the colour combination), thus I have a deck built around drawing cards.
That brought me the goal of having a large hand size; I then needed to get there somehow. I chose for a control deck with a Flash subtheme, using Nymris and Hippocamp as draw engines. If not, I have a lot of card draw, along with tutors to find the card draw.
This left me with a controlling, card draw deck with giant Flash creatures . It mainly wins by never relenting on any front and slowing my foes to a point of non-progression, all whilst I assail them with 7/7s. Entreat the Angels is honestly just a backup plan if I draw a Mystical Tutor .
This was overlong, but I hope it explained your query.

Note: re:Above list. Serra has no creature legendary so it may exclude her.
- Arcanis the Omnipotent
- Bosh, Iron Golem
- Dakkon Blackblade
- Haakon, Stromgald Scourge
- Higure, the Still Wind
- Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni
- Jaya Ballard (one creature, 2 walkers)
- Karona, False God
- Kresh the Bloodbraided
- Lyzolda, the Blood Witch
- Maralen of the Mornsong
- Mayael the Anima
- Momir Vig, Simic Visionary
- Phage the Untouchable
- Raksha Golden Cub
- Reaper King
- Rith, the Awakener
- Sakashima the Impostor
- Seshiro the Anointed
- Sisters of Stone Death
So now figure out which ones are most likely to fit into Tefiri's Past/Lore. Still say Sidar is most likely, But Jaya as another creature card could be possible I suppose.

The ruling for Octopus Umbra says it overwrites all other previous effects determining the enchanted creature’s P/T, but the official text for Dakkon Blackblade doesn’t specifically say “base P/T”, only “P/T”. Does that make a difference?
I’m assuming that it doesn’t and his P/T would be set to 8/8 regardless of the number of lands you control and not essentially just give him +8/+8, but I wanted to double check with someone.
Thanks for your time!

So a bunch of my local group of friends are all wanting to form budget edh decks the budget hasn't been discussed so much yet, but I believe it will be somewhere around $50. Since it is going to be such a casual edh experience I think I want to make Dakkon Blackblade as my commander since he is a character that I love in the the lore of Magic the Gathering.
I'm imagining some sort of Voltron strategy would be best for him, but I'd be up to hear other people's suggestions for the deck and what would work well while being with in the budget with cards that would be reasonably priced at about $2 or preferably less.
Here is some stuff I've found so far.

Thanks for the quick reply ShaperSavant!
- It would be great to have more example decks linked for High Power! Thanks for finding examples so quickly :)
- I understand the broader point you're trying to make, but Dakkon Blackblade offers no synergy to the Esper Naus/Grace plan, which is not true for any of the decks I listed.
- Piggy-backing on the #2, you have many decks that DO synergize with their commanders that are outclassed (i.e. General Tazri or the plethora of other UGx Food Chain commanders. What if someone wants to play a Razaketh, the Foulblooded + Leonin Relic-Warder strat without having to play partners? Ambassador Laquatus is thoroughly outclassed by Urza, Lord High Artificer .
- Two of the 4 decks I referenced (Edgar and Blue Pod) have been updated TODAY!! The Teeg and Laquatus lists you referenced haven't been updated in almost a YEAR. Part of why I keep harping on these decks is that they're well-written primers geared specifically toward cEDH. I don't know very many up-to-date Mid Power decks that fall into that category, or I would be championing them as well ;)

We are not associated with the cEDH Decklist Database and our resulting judgements may differ.
I think key to this particular set of discrepancies is that while building an analogue deck (in "off" colors with a suboptimal commander) to an established cEDH deck is possible, it doesn't reflect the power potentials of the commander itself. Example: Does a Dakkon Blackblade Esper Naus/Grace build that can steal games at fringe Competitive tables mean Dakkon belongs in Competitive? Definitely not.
We will take another look at how the off-color Partners fit into our schema going forward.
