It's just a Commander that can only do annoying stuff to others. Not just once, but whenever anything happens with it, there's a huge bummer enclosed for one player at the table. Not bannable, but something to sigh at whenever someone reveals it as their Commander. Like Tergrid, God of Fright  Flip, like Hokori, Dust Drinker, nobody who runs this at the head of a deck has fun in mind for the entire table, just annoyance for anyone who isn't them. I don't think that's the way to play a casual format, but I don't need a ban to explicitly tell me that. But they have banned Iona, Shield of Emeria so who knows what the RC will decide on it.

That being said, my prediction is that when you build the deck, and it does the thing a few times, it will get boring for the pilot soon enough that it won't be that much of a problem in the long term. I think the format has self-regulated worse cards than this before and it's more clout than this Commander deserves to be called out for instabanning.

DemonDragonJ the argument of “[COLOR] is the color of [XXXX], so it should be able to do [YYYY]” isn’t a great one, as it’s often used as a template by many, for advocating a colour doing anything it wants.

The most compelling argument for Winter Orb being white is the one raised by Gidgetimer mentioning the existence of Hokori, Dust Drinker. This is a big example of why it could be white, though I also feel like the color has changed a LOT since Hokori’s printing, and by todays standard this might be a bend in the colour (though, hard to say, as there are so few cards printed with these kinds of effects). I’m still leaning towards this being more of a blue effect than a white one.

Hokori, Dust Drinker would like a word about what color you think Winter Orb would be.

I don't necessarily have to break Hokori, Dust Drinker in here, it just needs to generate value, and one of the ways is if it is a one sided effect. I updated this to more of a prison build, using things like Thalia, Heretic Cathar to slow them down, Magus of the Moat as a moat effect, and Luminous Broodmoth as a way to get through that effect, and a form of protection for my prison pieces as well.

Since a lot of my pieces are higher CMC, it also makes better use of the excess mana from the amulet engine, dropping whatever 2 prison pieces I have at once in most cases.

I think my weakest cards are now:

Main
Wayward Swordtooth (doesn't do much early)
Mosswort Bridge (significantly worse because of Heartless Summoning)
Wooded Bastion (sort of unneeded most of the time)

Side
Hokori, Dust Drinker


Also, surprisingly enough, my 5 card wish package of:

Abrupt Decay
Anguished Unmaking
Unmoored Ego
Culling Ritual
The Gitrog Monster

covers just about everything I need it to, so I can actually use the other slots to improve various matchups by siding things in.

I don't particularly need Slayers' Stronghold + Boros Garrison if I cut Mosswort Bridge either, since it is mainly there for an enabler of the bridge (vigilance is nice though) - so there's quite a few slots to play with and enough space to manafix for just about anything.

There's still plenty of room for potential improvements, and honestly I'd like to double up on an Unmoored Ego type of effect (Necromentia) and maybe run 2x Culling Ritual. However, targeted discard is just so brutal to face without the leylines. Veil of Summer could be an option I guess, but I generally prefer the leylines since I don't need the and they are still good going second instead of first, since they go into play immediately.

So right now, I'd say my weakest cards are:


Main
2x Ancient Stirrings
1x Force of Vigor (won't be as needed thanks to Boseiju, Who Endures)


Side
2x Hokori, Dust Drinker (not going to lie to myself - aggro heavy meta isn't the place for it)
1x Firespout

So if anyone does have any good suggestions, I do have the wiggle room to fit them in.

I can imagine you're not to keen on running Winter Orb, but Hokori, Dust Drinker seems manageable.

I might consider going flat out zombies for this list. mono White, mono blue Urza, green white, or bant tend to do tax lists a bit better. I get the reasoning with rooftop storm, but it isn't enough.

If you want to do zombies, U/B is great because you have 3 solid generals to choose from between Grimgrin, Corpse-Born, Gisa and Geralf, and Wilhelt, the Rotcleaver

If you want to focus on Stax, maybe look into Urza, Lord High Artificer, Derevi, Empyrial Tactician, Hokori, Dust Drinker, Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker, Yasharn, Implacable Earth, Sigarda, Host of Herons, etc. All make great Stax commanders and have easier colors to work around the orb and tax effects (Opposition, Glare of Subdual, Seedborn Muse, Urza, Lord High Artificer, etc). Black can allow for reanimation for smokestack and the like white also has the potential along with plenty of ways to generate tokens.

You can do whatever you feel like, it is certainly your list, I just wanted to maybe offer the advice that this list is trying to do too much which keeps it from doing either of its game plans effectively. I speak from experience trying to make a Naya list that could be stompy and run tokens which didn't work well.
