Thoughts on these? Open the Armory, Sword of the Paruns, Mistveil Plains (good with sunforger), Tithe (finds mistveil, can be played with sunforger), Inventors' Fair, War Room, Goblin Engineer, Heliod's Pilgrim, Flickerform

I have a friend who has played Daretti, Scrap Savant to great effect. If you can land an early daretti, Goblin Engineer, or Goblin Welder you need not worry as much of counterspells. He also makes consistent draw and can be used to combo to some extent.

I'm a big fan of your list and I think I will convert my Krenko deck to match your list for Muxus (when mine arrives lol).

It looks like you've put a lot of consideration into this deck! If budget wasn't a question, would you make any changes?

I have not had a chance to playtest your list yet so I may be wrong, but I was thinking of adding Faithless Looting for additional draw, as well as Goblin Engineer for your artifacts as it combos well with treasures from Dockside Extortionist.

I look forward to your feedback and the opportunity to try your list!

boristormodor, thanks again for the feedback. I am always excited to see a notification that you have posted a reply.

Would you be willing to post some of the other decklists from your playgroup? It seems both of our groups are utilizing competitive casual decks. It would be great to have more of these decks from which to choose.

I would like to post one deck that I found online and one that I have been working on for a few years.


This deck was designed to be a cEDH deck by Marcsman. He has not updated the list for Commander Legends. I cut Goblin Engineer for Jeweled Lotus. He recommended cutting a mana dork. You can read our exchange in the comments section. I am also playtesting Hullbreacher for Reap but haven't gotten in any games with this change.

The other list I have been playing and updating since 2012.


It is definitely a glass cannon deck as all Maelstrom Wanderer decks have to be because of cascade. It isn't as strong as the Xyris deck.

I haven't gotten a chance to play your deck yet but I have all the pieces/proxies. My playgroup allows for proxies of cards we own. Should I be able to playtest the deck would you be ok with me posting it on Moxfield.com crediting you in the title? I did that with Marcsman's Xyris deck. I copied a lot of the Tappedout.net chat and put it in the primer section.

Another suggestion would be an early turn chump blocker who can tutor a key artifact out of the library and land it in your graveyard. This Goblin Engineer would be a great addition to the deck. It is not super budget but it's also a very good card to consider for your early turns. I would even suggest running a playset of them depending on how your deck plays out. It's activated ability is not a help for the deck but the tutor ETB is awesome.

marcsman, what are your thoughts on cutting Reap for Hullbreacher? Hullbreacher hinders our traditional wincons but generates massive mana and card advantage. It seems like in theory it would be easy to draw into either Craterhoof Behemoth on a board with a few snakes and/ or mana dorks or to play several dorks and resolve a massive Finale of Devastation. This is just a theoretical change as I haven't had a chance to playtest it.

I am still playing Jeweled Lotus in place of Goblin Engineer. Jeweled Lotus is an auto include in this deck. I didn't want to cut a mana dork because each dork in essence moves us a turn ahead. My reasoning on cutting Goblin Engineer was that it is only good with Underworld Breach and if you have one of the three wheel spells that discard your hand.

marcsman, could Reap be the cut if I didn't want to cut a mana dork to get Goblin Engineer back into the deck?
