Fog occurrence in decks from the last year
Latest Decks as Commander

After trying over and over again, I've finally found a version of Thantis, the Warweaver I like:
Commander / EDH
SCORE: 3 | 134 VIEWS | IN 2 FOLDERS
I know you'd usually include Revenge of Ravens style effects, but I decided against them on purpose, as I wanted to focus on creature combat, anthem effects, Fog s, lifegain and especially vigilance. You could say I'm kind of a Timmy ;) I'm not totally opposed to adding them in if I learn that the deck simply doesn't work without them, but I'd prefer holding the current course.
The result is the linked list. After adding Toski, Bearer of Secrets because of the great synergy between its indestructibility and the deck's ability of granting vigilance, I'll also add in Sapling of Colfenor soon.
As you'd imagine, thanks to Covid, I've had no chance to test the deck yet in an actual game.
My questions to the community:
With the given direction, do you have ideas I could take my 8-legged friend in? How do you like the general idea? Do you think the direction I took it in is stupid? Please let me know.

Hey, a Turbofog deck! First couple things I see: in the Fog package, switch Haze of Pollen for Angelsong for a cheaper cycling card. Thwart the Enemy doesn't do anything that a straightforward Fog doesn't do for a third the cost; Thwart the Enemy is better for creature-on-creature combat. Even with the Seasons Past recursion, if you've been careful with your Fogs, pulling back a 1-mana fog and a 2-mana fog should be enough, especially since you only have two of them. If you're set on the 3-mana Fog, consider Sudden Spoiling .
For the removal package: Abrupt Decay is solid. Vraska's Contempt is a little more mana-hungry than I personally prefer, but I can respect it. I would switch it for something 3-mana, maybe Anguished Unmaking or Maelstrom Pulse for broader removal.
Win condition: I've never used Approach of the Second Sun personally, so I'm interested in that choice. There's an earlier suggestion about adding a backup win condition, and I agree with that. Something resilient and difficult to interact with. I see Dragonlord Dromoka in the maybe board, and I like Sigarda, Host of Herons , but those are questionably budget.
Other: Adding some ramp that comes down before turn 3 might help you reach your late game faster. I also like a small discard package; even a handful of Duress can preempt a lot of problems. Leyline of Sanctity has dropped in price a lot, and it's practically required if you see a lot of burn or 10-rack or anything like that.
So that's what I get out of my first pass over this deck. Use your Fogs carefully and use your life total as a cushion, and this could get some good results. More comments to come later.

Targeting does matter in this case.
If Fog actually targeted your creature then it's protection would matter. And nothing would happen to it. But it does not do anything directly to your creature. It only replaces any combat damage during the turn with nothing.
For example, if the text on the Fog spell was written this way, "Prevent all combat damage this turn that would be dealt by any number of target creatures", then your creature's protection from green would stop the spell from affecting it because of D.E.B.T.. And your combat damage would get applied to your creature's target.

I think it's also worth mentioning that cards like Everlasting Torment and Leyline of Punishment render Fog -effects completely null & void, as well as allowing damage to occur to permanents and/or players with "Protection from X"..

If Fog is cast and resolves, 0 damage gets through from any creatures as the combat steps resolve.
There are no exceptions or exclusions from Fog 's effect. The card just says prevent all combat damage that would be dealt.
Since Fog says "prevent" on it, this operates like a replacement effect which replaces the damage part of all of the combat damage the turn it is cast with "nothing".

Just looking for confirmation that a creature with protection from green gets damage through even if Fog is cast. Thanks.

Intervention Pact has the text box " : pay on your next upkeep or lose."
"But it's good in commander!!!!1!" Nope. It's probably hitting one token, or one of the creatures Hoofie buffed, or their commander one time. Let's see what does much, much better: Fog , Holy Day , Clinging Mists , Blinding Fog , Arachnogenesis and Teferi's Protection , most of which are unplayable and the best are, well, Teferi's Protection is pretty good because white doesn't get much else.
Compared to Pact of the Titan, which is Bonebreaker Giant except it has flash and you don't have to pay for it immediately.
It's like comparing a Frito to draft chaff. One shouldn't be in your deck, and other's life purpose is to be destroyed.
