I like that you have Hermit Druid but I feel 12 basics is too many. I could be wrong, just my opinion.

Overall I like the deck. Nice job.

AkaAkuma Thanks for the love!

Tayam is a super versatile commander in that there's SOOOOOOO many different ways to build him! Originally, I was gonna build 3cmc Superfriends, with just value creatures and stuff in the mix. Then it turned into an Ophiomancer / Pawn of Ulamog style value/token/aristocrats deck where the fun stuff was all 3cmc. It wasn't until I found the card Squandered Resources that I figured out the Piranha Marsh kill and fell in love with how weird it was. I think the beauty in Tayam is just HOW MANY different iterations of feasible deck ideas there are because of how open ended it is. You can build the deck with no combos and I bet you'd have a great and still very valid deck on your hands!

I'd love to see -1/-1 counters variant! The support is there! And I never even considered the enchantress style, but that sounds SICK!!!!

It's very easy to go too far and make Tayam this bland combo-graveyard deck by leaning a lil too hard into it, so at least with my list I tried to build it in a way that even if all the combo pieces were removed the deck still can function as a tokens-counters shell c: I left out stuff like Hermit Druid to avoid that kinda "too far" strategy. I also left out alot of the best tutors for this reason too. If you're playing for the combo kill, more often than not you'll get the win with the combo, but if you don't think the combo is ready, you can switch gears and play for value and bodies and it works just fine!

And what my playgroup thinks of the deck... we're a bunch of shitlord's honestly and we tend to play some very rude strategies, so usually no ones upset about getting combo'd off, cause they would've probably tried the next turn anyway lol. I wouldn't recommend a list like mine to anyone playing with people who might still be learning or are playing "weaker" decks. It can be a bit much, and sometimes in a very do or die situation, you might take a pretty long turn while you wheel and deal with Tayam's ability or count dice and counters on your stuff.. But other than that, I find it to be SUPER fun to play and nobody has hated on me for playing it!

Tayam in general feels more like a surprise ever time you activate him because you never know whats coming off the top of the library, which leads to less linear play and generally more fun in games. That can be changed if you want to up the competitiveness of the deck, but you don't gotta c: It all comes down to you and your group, and Tayam offers a very cool design than can be used for MANY different styles and groups.

The world is your oyster! Whatever you build will end up a really sick deck, so link me if you happen to go through with it!

There's also the Hermit Druid combo, as well as Consult/Pact + Thassa's Oracle in it, which is pretty easy to tutor in Sultai colors.

Strangelove on Atraxa, Planeswalkers' Voice

Hey Rilakai, +1 :)

@your reddit post

Here's a Kethis deck I put together that turned out to be crazy fun: Superfrens Tokens/Reanimator. I wanted to play only planeswalkers that made tokens. Because Kethis, the Hidden Hand is basically Yawgmoth's Will / Underworld Breach , I found cards like Oath of Druids that could turbo self-mill, kind of like Hermit Druid . Primevals' Glorious Rebirth and Urza's Ruinous Blast became my go-to wincons. Planewide Celebration is probably another.

I've played vs. several Atraxa decks and they're usually very similar. Often she plays as archenemy and often relies on 10+ mana combo wins (like Teferi + Chainveil). What I liked about Kethis was that I didn't care if my planeswalkers died.

Imo, go beyond "planeswalkers" as a theme and narrow your focus to #tokens, #+1/+1 counters, etc. This lets you play around weaker planeswalkers, making your deck less threatening and more versatile and unique.

Hmm, this is strange. As far as I can tell, the endpanel and endaccordion lines are in the code, but it's not showing up in the description. I put the code for the description in a code box if you want to glance over it. Thanks for your help dude!

TheShadowNite on Dead Men Tell (some) Tales

BrassLord, those are some good suggestions! I would love to use Birds of Paradise , but right now its a $10 card. If it ever gets a reprint, I'll definitely pick some up (my other decks could use it too haha).

Yeah, I considered using a bunch of 0/0 creatures, but like you said it felt the same every time. I have a very creature heavy meta, and it felt just good enough to make me a target, but not good enough to close out the game immediately. When I had a first draft of the deck, Hermit Druid was in there as well, but again, the price is a little high for me. As I look to upgrade the deck in the future, I'll definitely consider it, I would absolutely love it in there, it's just a too pricey right now.

That's interesting you say that, as when I was goldfishing some hands I would always have a pretty empty hand (2-3 cards), but I would be able to fill my graveyard with some milling cards. I've always considered the graveyard an extension of my hand, so in filling it, I'm filling my hand, but I think I might've gone a little too far with that idea. Skullclamp is a great idea, as are the others. What are your thoughts on single use card draw, such as Read the Bones , or Return of the Wildspeaker ? (Those are just off the top of my head, I'm sure there are better ones out there).

Nethroi is a good boi! Just some minor suggestions. Avacyn's Pilgrim out for Birds of Paradise . 0 attack means free body later on, can produce all colors of mana and flying makes it a great target for mutate!

It really depends on the direction you'd like to go. A lot of Nethroi decks go all in on the self milling 0 cost creatures, which is effective but kinda plays the same way every game. This shell looks like you have a lot of different options and recursion redundancies at the cost of some of the turbo self mill cards. something like Hermit Druid outside of a combo could get in a lot of work if you slim down the mana base.

An observation, the deck itself seems like you have a solid basis, but I think it's a little lacking in card draw. Something like Skullclamp with all your mana dorks, The Great Henge , Painful Truths Deathreap Ritual could help keep the gas going, especially in the early game.

Just some ideas, hope it helps!

Nice list! Got some inspiration from it for my own Karador deck. I dont think you need Gift of Immortality , Kaya's Ghostform and Swiftfoot Boots . Sure, your commander are central for your strategy, but the cost reduction does include commander tax, so it will always cost you 3 mana if you fill you yard efficiently. See my list for inspiration, Hermit Druid is a goddamn beast in a Karador list! Reduce your basic land count and include that guy for some serious self mill. I use 6 basics because i don't want it to be auto win, but feel free to go down to 1-2 basics to really abuse the hermit :). Eldritch Evolution targeting Karador (you can always recast him for 3) plays any creature with cmc 10 or lower from your deck. Yosei, the Morning Star with a sac outlet lets you Stasis  your opponent while tapping down all their stuff. Nethroi, Apex of Death can mutate from your graveyard, so as long as you mill that guy you have a way to play any amount of creatures with total power 10 from your graveyard any time you have Karador out :). Stitcher's Supplier is a great self mill card especially with a sac outlet.
