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.)

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


Challenge Dominance

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.

unwucht, I wish I could add Fastbond for sure.

Koeketroef, I personally enjoy cloning different creatures in the deck. Mainly I clone the commander, but I’ve cloned other things depending on the situation. I usually have fun enough shenanigans with the clones. I had Moraug, Fury of Akoum in the deck, I just cut it on my last update for Maelstrom Wanderer because I wanted to test out having a haste enabler on a body. Though there are cheaper options, I like the value I get from the cascade, cascade.

I just realized that Tiamat can win with Food Chain. She should have a slot in "fringe competitive" considering Maelstrom Wanderer is up there.

TypicalTimmy - I wouldn't say that the card is shit, it's just narrow. High ceiling low floor type of deal. My configurations for deck are different depending on where and what I'm doing. Good ol' sideboard/maybeboards are amazing things to have access too. Also, it's a great feeling to 3 for someone with an odd ball card. I remember this dude was telling me Mana Vault was bad because you have to pay to untap it...I turn 4ed him with lucky flips off of Maelstrom Wanderer . Some people just cannot evaluate :)
