This looks like so much fun; your opponents won't know what hit them :)

I'd recommend the following cards:

  • Gamble: because it's the essence of chaos (thus adding to the flavor) and could potentially work very well for you.
  • Disrupt Decorum: everyone must attack, but no-one may attack you!
  • Repercussion: works incredibly well in your deck, as it's not creature heavy anyway.
  • Basilisk Collar/Shadowspear: just incredibly funny to attach to Heartless Hidetsugu as you'll be able to use his ability while actually gaining life, instead of losing it.

Have fun with this brew. And I'd appreciate if such a creative mind as yourself could check out some of my decks as well. I'm interested in your feedback.

Regards, NV

Hi Profet93! I wouldn’t say “serious” consideration per se. I am more inclined to give a slot to Heartless Hidetsugu than Sunforger, since Hidetsugu is a win-con.

Hey everyone, it’s been a while! I’ve been swamped with work. Thanks for the comments! Since the last time I updated this list, I have not seen any new releases which are worth including, but I did add a few honorable mentions to the Maybeboard.

AngelKyleeLin, were you able to build the deck? If so, how do you like it? :) Regarding Isshin, Two Heavens as One, imho there are too few effects in this deck to justify including him. Kaalia’s ability is the obvious target for Isshin, but she is rarely usable more than once per turn, as I need the Angel / Demon / Dragon in my hand to drop it, and I am lucky to have one to drop per turn. Since this deck is more Stax-oriented, I’d rather spend the mana on a stax piece rather than Isshin. I typically only want to attack when I know I am eliminating a player or at least making a near-fatal swing.

How’s it going XinZhao?! Mythos of Snapdax is interesting, it is like Cataclysm without the land-hate. I wouldn’t replace Damn with it because like the cheap targeted removal and option for creature wipe, whereas Mythos doesn’t wipe the entire board of creatures. I suppose it depends on your meta, especially if you feel that Mythos would be a better tool to target lots of Walkers (against something like Superfriends).

Hey Wuzibo, thank you for the great suggestions! I used to run Aurelia, the Warleader, but I don’t run her for the same reason I don’t run Isshin. I can’t take advantage of her with Kaalia and she doesn’t make enough of a board impact alone. But I definitely need to revisit Sunforger and Heartless Hidetsugu. In the past I hesitated to include them due to their relatively high mana costs. Sunforger is a large mana investment and I can’t cheat-in Hidetsugu. But I do like how the latter affects every player and combos with Gisela, Blade of Goldnight for an insta-kill. I’ll have to figure out what to swap for Hidetsugu to test it.

And thank you Nyrmak for the nice comment!!! I’m really glad you enjoy the decks as much as I do! If you have any thoughts or suggestions, I’m happy to hear them :)

Anyone know of cool legendary creatures that can deal damage to all opponents. Like Nekusar, the Mindrazer or Heartless Hidetsugu? I love weird commanders like these and I wanna try building one around the use of infect (basically, I want to do this weird nonsense instead of a standard atraxa infect).

Thanks for reading.

Makes sense, but yeah, the commander damage had to be changed to combat damage only after people realized what Heartless Hidetsugu was capable of ._.

Heartless Hidetsugu could work in this, to kill opponents quickly

Out: Pestilence - Pyrohemia - Heartless Hidetsugu

In: Repercussion - Blasphemous Act - Lightning Reaver

Needed to make room for Repercussion and Blasphemous Act which both have good synergies with some win conditions, so easy choice there. Heartless Hidetsugu just draws so much hate its almost a waste of mana to cast - but its still in the maybe pile. Lightning Reaver looks like a fun card and seems like it will fly under the radar - plus Fear will be tough to block for some opponents so the consistency of it getting counters should be relatively high.
