MESS1802 on card:Dakkon Blackblade enchanted with card:Octopus …

1 year ago

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!

Joe_Ken_ on Budget Blackblade

1 year ago

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.

Card draw Read the Bones , Ancient Craving , Ambition's Cost , Rush of Knowledge

Utility Key to the City , Druidic Satchel

Spells Blustersquall , Sleep , Aether Gale

Enchants + Voltron Mirror Mockery Will mostly be for defense since putting it on Dakkon won't do anything. Vanishing , Flickerform , Inquisitor's Flail , Fireshrieker , Blackblade Reforged

Rocks Star Compass , Guardian Idol

Thanks for the quick reply ShaperSavant!

  1. It would be great to have more example decks linked for High Power! Thanks for finding examples so quickly :)
  2. 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.
  3. 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 .
  4. 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.

It may be best to try to focus on two or three specific colors to make your mana base a little more consistent. RUG are the best colors for dragons so maybe if you could drop some of your greedier-costed White and Black cards, such as Serra the Benevolent , Dakkon Blackblade , Debt to the Deathless , Pox , Settle the Score , Leyline of the Void , Heightened Awareness , and Divine Intervention and replace them with some ramp spells, cheaper dragons, and potentially some anthems, I think you've definitely got more consistency and less dead draws than you did before.

TypicalTimmy - No worries man. The artist is the best person they could've commissioned for the art. He hasn't done any MTG art in 11 years (since Shadowmoor) and he did the art for both Dakkon Blackblade and Korlash, Heir to Blackblade , so the fact that they obviously went out of their way to make this happen (and even thought to) is pretty damn cool.
