Daxos of Meletis can't be blocked by creatures with power 3 or greater.

Whenever Daxos of Meletis deals combat damage to a player, exile the top card of that player's library. You gain life equal to that card's converted mana cost. Until end of turn, you may cast that card and you may spend mana as though it were mana of any colour to cast it.

Named_Tawyny on You may spend mana as …

Gidgetimer, are you sure about that?

My understanding is that if the card says you can "Spend mana as if it were any type" (eg Hostage Taker ) that this would include WUBRG and Colourless, but if it says you can "Spend mana as if it were any colour" (eg Daxos of Meletis ) that you can't use coloured mana to pay for colourless costs.

A few other mechanics to look for: rebound, cipher, retrace, aftermath, cascade. Of all these I think Oona's Grace is probably just a crazy card.

I was also thinking of other ways to cheat cards into being cast Mind's Dilation , Daxos of Meletis , Planeswalker's Mischief , Baral's Expertise , Stolen Goods , Talent of the Telepath , Diluvian Primordial , Chaos Wand , Omen Machine , Djinn of Wishes , God-Eternal Kefnet . Some of these seem like they may be inconsistent, but I really like Knowledge Pool .

Ugh, I'm going crazy, I've got a friend who I only mostly just play Commander with and he has a BLUE-WHITE Daxos of Meletis commander and I'm convinced he has less than 10 creatures in his deck. The rest are all just Blue counters, White lockdowns (for anything I'm actually able to resolve), Copy spells, card draw and some life gain. -Oh I forgot to mention that I play Mono-Red... Only commander I've had any luck with has of course been Krenko, Mob Boss that has worked out really well, yet Purphoros, God of the Forge was not quite fast enough to get ahead of him. But I'm not someone to just stick with just one way to win, I Love to constantly create and tinker with decks. I've tried out over a dozen different commanders with several deck variations and I'll still always lose about 2/3 of our match-ups... I'm determined to not venture outside of mono-Red, I'm in Love with it -and despite it kinda being the red-headed stepchild (Pun intended) of commander I'm 100% determined to create a dominant mono-red commander deck (besides Krenko:) ). I'm really trying to resist the temptation of resorting to land destruction for some pay-back for all the frustration and heartache he has put me through when he'll have me completely locked down while he swings at me to death with like a 3 power creature lol, It's like my finger is on the NUKE button but trying everything I can to not have to press it... Any ideas??? Thanks!

Thanks for the feedback, Pikobyte! I like the control pieces in your deck. Seems like you're playing a bit more protective with more focus on Rafiq himself. Mine have some other funky creatures which might not be AS good, but chill a bit with their own stuff (looking at you Thada Adel, Acquisitor and Daxos of Meletis)

I think it's better to keep the deck size to 60 because it will be a lot more consistent and you probably won't mill yourself.

To cut: 2 Opt or Serum Visions, Feat of Resistance, Frantic Inventory, Dovin, Hand of Control, Spear of Heliod, Daxos of Meletis, Grand Arbiter Augustin IV, Citadel Siege, Teferi's Ageless Insight, Jace, Memory Adept, and Teferi, Timeless Voyager.

I don't know about the rest of the deck and playing a couple extra cards can't hurt as long as you play extra lands. If you do play extra cards play Yorion, Sky Nomad as your companion so that you can get a free card every game.

Good Luck on the deck!
