Drumbellower

Creature — Spirit

Flying

Untap all creatures you control during each other player's untap step.

Tenza, Godo's Maul is an equipment that you might want to check whenever you have a Red Commander, with Iroas I think you gain plenty to justify it. Inquisitor's Flail is good for your Commander at least, but you don't have Trample built in, so it might not actually work unless you can count on having Vigilance. Maybe Brave the Sands would help? Drumbellower also exists.

True Conviction, Berserkers' Onslaught, and Blade Historian are Double Strike sources that seem decent and global. I find Gisela, Blade of Goldnight is a great damage doubler since she also halves it vs your stuff.

The Pestilence + Samite Elder combo seems like a good idea, because pestilence alone could boardwipe (at the cost of creatures) if I don't have samite out. Drumbellower is also a fun idea so I can block with deathtouch stuff as well. However, Energy Flux doesn't seem like the best idea unless i'm facing off against an artifacts list, because even though it would work as stax, I don't want to lose my artifacts. thanks for the ideas nonetheless.

It's a lot to set up, but Pestilence (or any analogue of it), Samite Elder and your Commander can wipe the board of opponent's creatures each turn for B, and you gain a ton of life potentially since it'll also have Lifelink, any excess Black mana can be dumped into Pestilence, and Pestilence can swing for 4 on an open board, and you can do the actual wipe at instant speed. Also good with a Drumbellower I suppose, then you can wipe on each player's turn for B.

It's a bit weird, but New Zur can do some shenanigans with Parallax Wave, since it can then exile itself, which brings everything back, including itself, so you can keep it around if you want, locking down a few problem creatures that don't have important ETBs (or you can flicker your own that have important ones, even a Spirited Companion drawing a card isn't bad technically), which is pretty good value for the 1W needed to turn it into a creature.

With so few artifacts, you could maybe look at Energy Flux, that really hurts decks that use artifacts.

I'd cut Soul Warden and Ajani's Welcome. Incidental life gain is ok, but not great, and not really worth two slots in the deck unless they were benefiting you in some other way.

Looks like you need more card draw, otherwise you'll stall out too early. Keeper of Fables is pretty subpar. Collective Unconscious will draw you a ton of cards when you have your game plan going. I'd also recommend the courts, Court of Grace for sure, as it will produce more tokens for you. Court of Bounty is great for getting more land drops or creature drops, and Court of Ire can help you finish. You wouldn't necessarily need to have all three of them, but I think the white one really fits the theme of your deck.

A rather obscure card, but I find Kyren Negotiations to be a good way to use your creatures to punch for damage when you don't have advantageous attacks. Tap them for damage at the end of turn before yours, then untap and do your thing. This would pair nicely with Drumbellower.

Preface:

This deck was an idea to use some of my old cards, and also see just how nuts I could go with Kwain, Itinerant Meddler. This deck is a spider-web of synergy and combos, multiple infinite combos, and complete bonkers level shenanigans lurking behind a friendly-looking magic rabbit. This is not a budget deck, but in a gracious nod to Lewis Carroll, it is incredibly fun to go "down the rabbit-hole".

=====================

At it's core, the deck is group hug with card-draw, card based mana-ramp, and multiple options for life-gain. I use a few card-draw creatures as well, such as Shabraz, the Skyshark for their synergy with Kwain. Alternate win conditions include Approach of the Second Sun, Jace's Archivist, Windfall, Jace, Wielder of Mysteries, Triskaidekaphile, and Test of Endurance; but the deck is also perfectly capable of beating someone to death with a giant fish - or a giant anything thanks to numerous life-gain options paired with an Archangel of Thune.

The deck has several prison elements with Moat, Silent Arbiter, and Archon of Emeria, as well as Propaganda, Ghostly Prison, and Sphere of Safety. Silent Arbiter and Crawlspace help directly reduce the deck's exposure to attack, along with Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer for any specific threats or "when attacks" triggers. Finally, since this deck does not rely on creatures or doing damage to win, and generates lots of cards in hand, Meishin, the Mind Cage is an easy way to reduce all opponents' creatures to 0 power. For direct damage and targeted attacks outside of combat, the deck includes The Wanderer and Greater Auramancy.

Card draw, treasure tokens, and unlimited hand-size combine with four different Tutors, an Urza's Saga, and a Teferi's Puzzle Box help you keep multiple options in hand, and hopefully keep Kwain hopping one or two steps ahead of your opponents (Remember to use the tutors before your Teferi's Puzzle Box hits the board). Tidal Barracuda, and Vedalken Orrery let you cast anything on anyone's turn. Walking Atlas helps get rid of lands anytime it's not tapped (another combo with Mind Over Matter), and Drumbellower and Teferi, Who Slows the Sunset make sure you're able to untap on every turn, so you can play cards anytime - including win-cons like Laboratory Maniac or Jace's Archivist on an opponent's end-step, then draw for the win.

Circling back to Sphere of Safety - the deck runs 18 enchantments natively, but also features Enchanted Evening to turn everyone's permanents into enchantments. (The deck also conveniently includes Cleansing Nova to destroy all enchantments, which is an absolutely devastating total board wipe when paired with Enchanted Evening, especially if you have Avacyn, Angel of Hope in play on your side). With Enchanted Evening on the board and Sphere of Safety, every permanent you control also counts toward your opponents' cost to attack you for each creature they target you with. Comboing Enchanted Evening, Avacyn, Angel of Hope, and Greater Auramancy means every permanent has both indestructible and shroud, and prevents your planeswalkers from being targeted (or targeted for attacks) directly.

I am only running two counterspells, Mana Drain and Force of Negation, so the deck uses Dovescape to lock down any stray non-creature spells, as well as Tidal Barracuda and ultimately Forced Fruition to further reduce any errant spellcasting. And in this deck, Dovescape not only helps creates magnitudes of tokens, but each of those tokens is potentially an enchantment when it hits the board. With Enchanted Evening in play, those tokens, or ... literally ... any ... other card you play, combos off Archon of Sun's Grace to instantly create infinite (enchantment) pegasus tokens, and become effectively a 1 card infinite combo of 2/2 flying (avoiding Moat) lifelink pegasus. Every. Single. Time. any permanent hits the board under your control after you have both in play.

The Deck includes a The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale to help keep down on the riff-raff, (plus kill off a few billion pegasus every turn), and helps tie up opponent's mana; meshing with the prison cards we already use. For its own mana, there are some basic mana-rocks and a Smothering Tithe to help offset some of the higher casting cost spells if Braids, Conjurer Adept is not on the board.

The Smothering Tithe pairs well with sheer card-draw provided through Forced Fruition, Temple Bell, Kami of the Crescent Moon, and Kwain, Itinerant Meddler to almost guarantee several dozen treasure tokens each turn and help the deck rapidly ramp to maintain both card and board advantage towards casting an Omniscience.

More combo madness, Teferi's Puzzle Box helps spin through the deck looking for lands and combo solutions. Teferi's Puzzle Box also combos really well with Shabraz, the Skyshark and Alhammarret's Archive, effectively doubling the card-draw effect of Teferi's Puzzle Box each draw phase - and Sphinx of the Second Sun provides double the draw-phases per turn, so you're geometrically quadrupling your cards in hand each turn (and possibly playing them for free). And, for every card you draw, the shark is growing, your life is growing, and if you have the Archangel of Thune, everything else is growing too.

If you want to discard cards from your hand, to hit Triskaidekaphile for instance, or just go infinite with your commander, you can use Mind Over Matter, Omniscience, or Peace of Mind to manipulate your hand-size and either play or discard. The deck includes an Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, Timetwister and Elixir of Immortality to shuffle your graveyard back into your hand, as well as Displacer Kitten and Angel of Finality to exile your opponents' graveyards with a quick bounce.

=======================

Summary Combos:

Forced Fruition + Smothering Tithe == Treasure Tokens

Teferi's Puzzle Box + Shabraz, the Skyshark == Giant Shark and TONS of life-gain every turn

Teferi's Puzzle Box + Shabraz, the Skyshark + Alhammarret's Archive == Sheer madness

Teferi's Puzzle Box + Shabraz, the Skyshark + Alhammarret's Archive + Archangel of Thune == Same as above, but now ALL of your creatures grow exponentially, every turn

Kwain, Itinerant Meddler + (any of the above) == even more nuts

Kwain, Itinerant Meddler + Mind Over Matter == Infinite combo, draw your deck

Kwain, Itinerant Meddler + Mind Over Matter + (any "if you cannot draw you win") = instant win

Enchanted Evening + Sphere of Safety == every card you have counts towards attack cost

Enchanted Evening + Cleansing Nova == total board wipe (lands, creatures, artifacts, all permanents)

Enchanted Evening + Aura Fracture + (any land) == targeted removal of any permanent

Enchanted Evening + Archon of Sun's Grace == infinite flying pegasus whenever ANY card hits the board under your control, even treasure tokens from Forced Fruition.

Enchanted Evening + Greater Auramancy == every card you play has shroud when it comes into play, but will interfere with Mind Over Matter combo with Kwain.

Sheer Card Draw and hand-size + Mind Over Matter == you can tap or untap whatever you want, whenever you want, and you can reshuffle your graveyard with Elixir of Immortality or Timetwister.

=====================

There's more I could write about with additional combos and card interactions, but those are the highlights. The deck is just all-out madness to play and can quietly build and recycle cards until it comes out of nowhere with an 600/600 flying shark. I enjoy it. I hope you will as well.

Thank you.

you need to find more cards that have some kind of synergy with what your commander does/is trying to do.

I would try to focus more on cards that work with either the tap effects or untap effects your creatures have. A card like Throne of the God-Pharaoh would do wonders in this deck, since your goal at the end of your turn is to have every single creature on your side of the field tapped.

I would also SERIOUSLY consider adding more Vehicles. the crew mechanic is supposed to be a hindrance but with your commander, it becomes a huge strength. I don't think you are taking advantage of that enough here. Think about adding cards like Consulate Dreadnought Skysovereign, Consul Flagship Dermotaxi and Untethered Express, as well as any others you like, would be amazing in a deck like this since at the end of your turn they would also count as triggers for Throne of the God-Pharaoh

Lastly, I would think about Meekstone, its a great way to help lock down the board for you if you pair it with Drumbellower

I too don't sign in to Tappedout much lately so this too is a delayed comment :)

I love the idea of Emiel the Blessed, because not only is it a wincon WHEN you combo it with Village Bell-Ringer, but it also can be used as a defensive tactic when a creature - specifically Captain Sisay. Problem is it requires another creature that is not easily tutorable - but it IS only a 3 drop creature, has flash, and it is awesome to work with Gaddock Teeg. So a definite possibility that I will test.

As far as Drumbellower, its basically a 2 mana cheaper option than Seedborn Muse but still has the same strategic value as it - so it boils down to whether that 2 less mana cost is enough to warrant it being included over other options.

Agreed about Halo Fountain. It's a no brainer Gaddock Teeg proof tutorable wincon :)

Thanks for on going input.

Delayed comment (I dont used tappedout much signed in) but all your comments make sense, good information! I think the usual combo I see with Vivien is Emiel the Blessed, so you can grab out a Village Bell-Ringer with enough mana dorks, or mana dorks that specifically un tap lands like cradle. It's a different build of course, both look like cool options but all your considerations / reasonings make sense.

Love seeing Halo Fountain as well, card is sick I need to figure out a use for it. I assume Seedborn Muse would be too slow, but thoughts on Drumbellower? Or is the idea you should only need one or two untaps in order to close out what you need
