Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer would be a great control commander, i know hes in your deck but him as a commander can just nullify ridiculous creatures

It really doesn't look like your deck has a focus. You've got some group-hug in there, but then you've got some annoying things in there like Archetype of Imagination and Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer and Trygon Predator . I'm not saying I don't like these cards, or that they aren't decent cards, but when you try to play group-hug with little to no group-hug effects, and then stack on annoying cards that might make you a target, then you really aren't focusing in on what you want to do (at least in my opinion).

If you are group-hug, then a card like Archetype of Imagination just screams to be removed from the board, especially if someone is invested in flyers. Ideally, playing group-hug means you are mostly running creatures that other players don't want to remove, and possibly are willing to protect on the table because they offer some sort of benefit, like the ones I mentioned earlier.

I'm kind of on the fence about the curse enchantments you are running. If you enchanted me with one of them, I'd probably go after you for it just out of principle. I'd rather run some pillowfort in their place, something like Propaganda and Ghostly Prison . These effects don't outright harm anyone else at the table right away, directing their attention elsewhere for the time being.

Hopefully these ideas help point you in the right direction.

ZendikariWol - I did a little playtesting with Ghostly Prison and Propaganda and found them lackluster. They did nothing to immediately hinder my opponents' ability to develop a boardstate or advance my own victory. I have decks where I run them, but those are a bit more casual than this one, so these cards perform a bit better against that level of meta.

Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer just is not fast enough, too little impact, and provides too much card advantage to be all that effective here.

Might I suggest my boi: Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer ? Also where are Ghostly Prison and Propaganda ? These all serve to ward off attacks. That can be very useful or kinda useful, depending on your meta.

Yes, cool deck! I like the way it works, especially that you've stayed away from an ultra control themed deck. The main thing to change is your average mana costs. Depending on your deck an average cmc could be around 3.0.

Many flying creatures are the proper card for this deck, but I would prefer to turn down Bruna, the Fading Light , Gisela, the Broken Blade for your decks strategy. Unesh, Criosphinx Sovereign on the first sight seems right, would be great to insert some more Sphinx creatures. Sphere of Safety is indeed a good card in enchantment decks, but in case of mana costs it may not be worth to consider the payment. On turn 5 you have really good spells in your deck, and the Sphere of Safety doesn't do anything more than Ghostly Prison or Propaganda . Whirlpool Drake is in my opinion not good for shuffeling your graveyard into your library.

My suggestions are Darksteel Plate , for giving your creature indestructible. As I see you are not going into the strategy to pump up your commander with many equipments, but this card could be useful. Also a nice card for giving any of your creatures vigilance I recommend Reconnaissance (okay, it doesn't say dirctly vigilance, but with rules understanding you can untap the creature after the damage is done and before end of combat - so the same effect as vigilance. Also it protects your attacking creatures). Commander staples for white-blue are of course Cyclonic Rift (budget alternative Devastation Tide ), Supreme Verdict or Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer .

In your Maybe-board are already some nice cards - Aura of Silence does work well. Also Kinjalli's Sunwing slows your opponents down. Please consider the following:

  1. Strionic Resonator for getting more trigger effects!
  2. Warden of Evos Isle for some kind of mana ramp
  3. Steel of the Godhead

In my opinion you have to make some desicions wheter you play:

  1. Control with instants (Counterspells, etc.)
  2. Control with enchantments (Stax strategy)
  3. Creature based (more creatures - less spells)
The more strategies you follow the more complicated and destructive is your game plan. I'm really looking forward for this deck - again: many ideas are already awesome!

Hi Pekka88!

Thanks for all the explanations on the lingo, I think I understand what Pluralkumquat was trying to say now!

The Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer was suggested to me from a friend who is sorta helping me start in Magic. He said it could fit into my colors deck, and that even though the opponent would draw a card, it would prevent creatures from attacking me, letting me keep my creatures healthy.

Not sure if he meant for my style of deck but I liked the idea! If it doesnt fit, then I can drop it.

I will check those videos out for sure! Thank you!
