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.)

Theasus7 on Horde of Notions

Maelstrom Wanderer would be a pretty awesome bomb to finish off the game. I almost wonder if you figure out ways to get really big expensive elementals into your graveyard and then cheat them onto the battlefield with Horde of Notions's ability.

Also, Vigor is my favorite card in all of MTG. If you are ever looking for some different elementals he might be a good option.

It could probably use a little more card draw......I do have a Mulldrifter and the cluestones can draw if I sacrifice them....the one that would help the most is the Vanquisher's Banner....I also really want to run all of the Omnaths and an Animar, Soul of Elements and maybe a Maelstrom Wanderer but it doesn't necessarily need a wanderer.....Greensleeves, Maro-Sorcerer would also go good in it but also doesn't need need it....and any of the Titanias would go better in it than greensleeves

legendofa on How Did Riku Lose Popularity?

4 months ago

The original Commander 2011 commanders were as much defining and refining the color space for enemy trios as they were introducing a new product. The last 10+ years have seen a lot of development, and what was exploratory and experimental then is well-established now. If nothing else, there are simply a lot more options--a deck that might have been headed by Riku of Two Reflections could now be Iluna, Apex of Wishes or Xyris, the Writhing Storm or Surrak Dragonclaw. If you were playing before 2019, you had five options: Riku, Surrak, Animar, Soul of Elements, Maelstrom Wanderer, or Intet, the Dreamer. Now, there are more options, and more specialized options. The four years since then have quadrupled the lost of possible commanders for that color set.

I haven't seen a Ruhan of the Fomori or Damia, Sage of Stone deck for a very long time, but those were popular, too.

If you're willing to add to your build, Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder brings his friends Maelstrom Wanderer, Averna, the Chaos Bloom and Imoti, Celebrant of Bounty to the cascade party ;-)

Tur on Hidden Power - Crop Rotation

1 year ago


Thank you for noticing my intention, that is the key point of this argument!! Newer and casual players tend to disregard or ignore Crop Rotation, because they only see it for very expensive cards such as: Gaea's Cradle, Mishra's Workshop, The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale, Serra's Sanctum, Bazaar of Baghdad, and Diamond Valley. (I.e. sacrifice a Forest and get Gaea's Cradle.)

In fact, I own all of these cards and in only one single case is Gaea's Cradle the first priority for Crop Rotation. Here are a few examples using commander decks: (These do not include utility lands, such as Bojuka Bog, Cavern of Souls, nor Homeward Path.)

Commander: Lord Windgrace

Lotus Field is great for ramping with Lord Windgrace minus three ability. Cabal Coffers is fantastic for ramp. Field of the Dead provides a win condition and blockers.

Commander: Mina and Denn, Wildborn

Because of Fiery Emancipation, Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle became ridiculously overpowered. Nine damage every time a mountain enters the battlefield. Furthermore, the Scapeshift combo causes you to win the game.

Commander: The Gitrog Monster

Dakmor Salvage is the combo engine for The Gitrog Monster. Therefore searching for it, the sacrificing it to The Gitrog Monster is crucial for the deck.

Commander: Gargos, Vicious Watcher

Hall of the Bandit Lord provides haste to the hydra tribal. Reliquary Tower is necessary for cards such as Soul's Majesty and Greater Good. Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is pretty nice with the triple green devotion from Gargos, Vicious Watcher.

Commander: Carth the Lion

Field of the Dead is way too good in Carth the Lion, because Garruk, Cursed Huntsman emblems immediately with Carth the Lion. Making at least one 5/5 zombie with trample every turn is very strong.

Commander: Maelstrom Wanderer

Sanctum of Eternity allows you to put Maelstrom Wanderer back into your hand, allowing for the on-cast trigger to happen again. High Market not only taps for mana, but allows you to send Maelstrom Wanderer back to the command zone.

Commander: Sythis, Harvest's Hand

Unfortunately, for this deck Serra's Sanctum is the best target for Crop Rotation, however Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is a close second best target. With Sythis, Harvest's Hand you have to commit heavily to the board, so your devotion is going to be high. Field of the Dead gives blockers before you can stabilize with Sphere of Safety, Solitary Confinement, and Ghostly Prison.

Commander: Marwyn, the Nurturer

Unfortunately, for this deck Gaea's Cradle is the best target for Crop Rotation, however Wirewood Lodge is a close second best target for untapping Marwyn, the Nurturer. In fact, I found myself frequently choosing Wirewood Lodge over Gaea's Cradle because it does not draw as much threat for Strip Mine effects. Wizards of the Coast is frightfully aware of this fact and has made many cards to compensate by using creatures and enchantments: Priest of Titania, Itlimoc, Cradle of the Sun, Elvish Archdruid, and Circle of Dreams Druid.

Hope this helps clarify my stance!
