Daxos the Returned Discussion

SpecimeN87 on Alesha Infernal Enchantress: Sheathing the Sword

In place of marchesa, or another card perhaps, have you considered Daxos the Returned for a back up win con? after all, he is Alesha return-able? or would that make it feel a bit "same-y" with actual daxos returned decks for your taste?

Hi Kirded, I though quite a bit about Daxos the Returned , but I think he is not benefitting enough for this deck to be played. With only 7 enchantments he is not really contributing much to the experience count. His best ability would be generating other beaters, which I find the deck does not really need. The deck is heavily focused on Kelsien, the Plague , and deviating from that tends to destroy the delicate balance, that keeps it together....

This deck seems realy powerfull. I'm looking forward to build it.

But if you're going for voltron, don't you think adding Daxos the Returned to get experiense counters faster should be a good idea?

Daxos the Returned might give a couple more exp counters but more importantly use the ones you already have to make blockers etc.

Tariel, Reckoner of Souls can bring out all the guys you murdered

If you're going to give deathtouch to a pinger you have to have get Goblin Sharpshooter, Wojek Embermage and maybe Frostwielder. coumbajj witches would be turned against you.

Grave Betrayal

Proliferate affects Exp counters so anything with that would help.

TheGiftedBard on Picking the right precon

7 months ago


I’m fairly new to the game and new to edh, my apologizes if I’m not in the right section.

I’m currently looking at the precons and there’s a few I’d like to try but right now I think that getting just one is probably smarter in case I end up not liking the format.

In all the precon I looked at, these are the one that my lgs still have. I’m gonna list them one by one with a quick reason why I’m interested by them.

Commander - Devour for Power - The Mimeoplasm: I do like the idea of dumping stuff in my graveyard to basically make my commander into whatever I need for a particular situation, I recently bought a small collection with a Sheoldred, Whispering One, Mortivore, Golgari Grave-Troll, Lhurgoyf and Hermit Druid.

Commander - Political Puppet - Zedruu the Greathearted: The idea of casting curses on my opponents and giving them creatures to screw them over seems terribly funny and diabolical. Switching my Steel Golem for Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre would be a win for me even if I end up losing the game.

Commander 2015 - Call the Spirits - Daxos the Returned: Building an enchantment deck seemed fun and I also have cards like Sorin Markov with his -3 and cards line Debt to the Deathless or Exsanguinate in my collection for alternative way of winning the game.

Commander 2015 - Seize Control - Mizzix of the Izmagnus: It’s probably not the main goal of the deck but casting instant and sorcery with Talrand, Sky Summoner or Murmuring Mystic and having Crackling Drake on the board to swoop in with a bunch of flying drakes and birds on the board made me laugh.

Commander 2015 - Swell the Host - Ezuri, Claw of Progress: Ezuri just looked so badass and flooding the bord with a bunch of 2 and 1 power creatures and adding stuff like Craterhoof Behemoth and Beastmaster Ascension or using Triumph of the Hordes or even buffing them up with Ezuri + some proliferate triggers looked like sometimes that could be very scary for the table.

Sorry for the long post but There’s so many choices that I got lost and confused on what could be better a first deck.

Thanks for the help.

Daxos the Returned could offer a source of blockers at least.

War Room: Not bad! ChannelFireball's article covers most of it; fine in e.g. mono- or even mono- to make things a bit more reliable

Thalisse, Reverent Medium: it's not quite Anointed Procession in the command zone, but I like it. Strionic Resonator triples the number of created Spirits. Temporary tokens from Tombstone Stairwell and Lightning Coils still count. Finally, it doesn't specify creature tokens, so with Pitiless Plunderer and a sac outlet, in response to each turn's trigger, you can sac the Spirits of the previous turn to get Treasure, only to have those Spirits replaced by new ones!

Vow of Torment: took me a second to parse that the point of this was further the deprecation of intimidate.

Promise of Tomorrow: More experiments in card advantage! I like the art and name, very hopeful and wholesome.

Ghen, Arcanum Weaver: the art for this looks more to me than anything, but whatever. Enchantments with ETB abilities are obviously nice, e.g. Act of Authority, Demonic Lore, and Sage's Reverie (no Induced Amnesia and Hatching Plans in the 99 tho, sorry). Spirit Loop-styled cards and enchantment tokens from e.g. Daxos the Returned can be used for sac fodder. Sagas can be recycled (you can loop Fall of the Thran if you really want to).

I'm going to be lazy and post a card I made a while back.

Budando, Hob-Mayor

Comment: I always felt Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas felt underwhelming and not really in the spirit, and goblins could easily take advantage of 's love for weenies. Could maybe be tweaked to CMC 5 and/or delay token creation until upkeep instead?

Flavored as a Shadowmoore hobgoblin (token bonus, see also Goblin Trenches). Name is attempt at translating Billy Blind's name to proto-celtic, using the words "budā" (will) and "ando" (blind). (Word source: University of Wales.)

Make a experience commander that's more interesting than Daxos the Returned.
