Maelstrom Wanderer

Legendary Creature — Elemental

Creatures you control have haste.

Cascade, cascade (When you cast this spell, exile cards from the top of your library until you exile a nonland card that costs less. You may cast it without paying its mana cost. Put the exiled cards on the bottom in a random order. Then do it again.)

Maelstrom Wanderer and Embercleave would both very much like to be invited to this party.

Hey, good start, still have 25 cards to cut though which is a lot.

Lets start with cutting noncreature spells and then move to cutting creatures? First cuts to consider:

You can afford to cut a couple of the subpar lands for five colors. Ash Barrens is fine if you want to spend one mana to fetch a basic land, but if you have to play it as a land then it could slow down being able to cast Jodah too much. Shamanic Revelation is not good draw here for five mana. You're much more likely to have a higher power creature than the same number of creatures equal or more than the amount of power.


There's 40 creatures here, but if I was building this deck I would play only 20 of them which includes both nonLegendary Elders. Some advice to consider is choose the 20-25 best Legendary creatures and cut the others? Since you're not playing hatebears, what you're looking for with Legends are getting value from other Legends or casting spells from exile. How they support Jodah because he's the best attacking creature when you control other Legends.

Using Legendary creatures you're currently playing here's how I would break down the priority areas from Legends to keep:

Those who draw, ramp or find other Legends.

Those who make Jodah a better attacker.

Those who help for recovery from removal.

Those who are support, but don't fit into the other areas.

In place of two of the lesser Legends consider Legend tutors, Time of Need and Search for Glory?


Some Legends within the budget to consider adding:

Good luck with your deck.

Well, Niv is copied upon ETB, not cast.

So Niv sits on the stack while you Cascade into one of the others.

I actually added Maelstrom Wanderer during my last upgrade to test the waters with it. But your idea likely is a bit more stable.

I was actually thinking of adding Kruphix, God of Horizons to hold onto the mana from Savage Ventmaw and Klauth, Unrivaled Ancient as well as just generally pooling unused mana. Even considered Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy to bypass the whole draw, cast and mana issues. Getting 7+ mana is easy. Getting something to use it on? Eh not so much.

Might I recommend swapping Oko, Thief of Crowns or Maelstrom Wanderer for Sunder? Sunder does a few things very good in this deck other than slow your opponents down. The first is replenishes your hand for those sweet sweet landfall plays especially since the deck runs only 35 lands. The second is it works exceptionally well with Cultivator Colossus! Additionally works fantastic with Patron of the Moon as 4to16characters had mentioned.

Remember a while ago where I made Zaren, Silverback Ironfist? The Ape Berserker who revolved around the Fight mechanic? So I built a deck and he was way to powerful. Every single creature spell becoems removal. Even when I nerf him, dropping it from two +1/+1 counters when the creature survives down to just a single +1/+1 until end of turn, everything just decimates the boardstate. Dropping a Hornet Queen just wrecked a game I was playing in. Because he is a custom commander, I have the deck here on Tappedout and I have the browser tab open. My current boardstate (after winning the game) looks like this:

Oh, right. I also have 5x Forest in play, 4x Mountain, Gruul Signet, Mox Amber, Mana Crypt and Arcane Signet. Das a lotta mana, man!

  • It's my Turn 9.

Game ended with me at 24 life.

Took down The Ur-Dragon, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Maelstrom Wanderer.

Poor Ur-Dragon died twice to my fights; Once to Akroma, Angel of Fury after she triggered a second time since The Ur-Dragon is both white and blue, she couldn't deal damage back. So when Akroma dealt 6, she got +1/+1 until end of turn and I had her fight again with Hunt the Hunter, since The Ur-Dragon is green. Later, Hornet Queen made short work of it, again.

I think I vastly underestimated the power of the Fight mechanic, and now I understand why we do not have a Fight Commander. T-T

Enchantment

At the beginning of combat on your turn, you and target opponent may each reveal cards from the top of your library until you both reveal a creature card. If you do, they enter the battlefield tapped and fight each other. Put the rest of the revealed cards on the bottom of their libraries in a random order. If one creature survives, it remains on the battlefield. If both creatures survive, their owners shuffle them back into their library.

There isn't much of a difference, my understanding is that WotC prefers that formatting to avoid the confusion of whether the creature grants the ability to itself. Some creatures though do use the other formatting (Maelstrom Wanderer and Slivers for example). The functional difference is that Archetype of Aggression only has trample while it's on the battlefield, while Aggressive Mammoth has trample in all zones. This means Mwonvuli Beast Tracker would be able to search for the Mamoth, but not the Archetype.

Yldris always seemed like such a fun commander to me, probably because Maelstrom Wanderer was one of my first commanders. Biggest thing I see write of the back is your man base. Your deck is really blue with barely any black. might I suggest cutting back on a swamp or 2. Along with the mana base I highly suggest adding some MDFC's as most of the are fantastic. I would avoid Agadeem and Shatterskull because X spells (you might wanna cut Villainous Wealthbecause of that too), but Turntimber Symbiosis  Flip, and Sea Gate Restoration  Flip are both big spells to play after connecting with Yldris. Bala Ged Recovery  Flip, Glasspool Mimic  Flip, and even Song-Mad Treachery  Flip kinda goes with your theft theme. With the MDFC's I've been able to cut my decks down to 34-35 lands with barely any noticeable performance issues. I have even gone down to 32-33 in lower curve decks. Also I would cut decimate. It is too often a dead card when there isn't one of everything on the field and worse off might have to target your own things in dire situations just to remove key piece from someone else's board. I hope My advice helped you out! Have fun and may the Gods of Chaos be ever in your favor.
