Strixhaven Stadium can give you an alternate win con, worse case scenario it is a three CMC mana rock, it can go off fast with all the untap mechanics these decks usually run

As expensive as it is" Metalworker is hilarious, I have put out a T2 Kozilek in my list. Totally worth it

     DawnsRayofLight: Thank you, great suggestions!

     I am running Counterspell, so I'm not quite sure what you mean about running Stoic Rebuttal over it. I've considered cutting SR a few times for Negate, but I always end up deciding against it, as it's nearly always another Counterspell. This slot is more likely to become Disallow and eventually Force of Will. =)

     Absolutely love AEtherize! Used it a lot in standard back in the RTR block; I should definitely find a home for it here! I think I'll definitely consider Aetherspouts as well. Propaganda is really good with the land control, but I always feel like without running a whole Pillow Fort package, it's an enchantment I can't tap for mana. Same kind of feelings for Dissipation Field, despite the strength of the card.

     Manascape Refractor is an awesome suggestion that I hadn't considered! Definitely going to look to make room for it. Field and Vale, though, I feel would just slow me down more than they would be beneficial in the face of some of my stax effects. I'd be more inclined to add Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx back into the deck, I think.

     This deck honestly doesn't need more win-more cards. I used to have it very full of big value creatures like Darksteel Colossus and Sphinx of the Second Sun that I could turn up with Urza's active, which was fine - but I'd frequently find myself stuck with too many in my early hand, and was way more susceptible to being mana-screwed. At this point I'm down to one big fatty in Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur. All that being said, I am planning to eventually cut God-Pharaoh's Statue for Blightsteel Colossus haha. =P

     Metalworker would be a great pickup too, but I'd definitely be more inclined to trade for than buy, and finding someone willing to trade one is easier said than done lol

     Thanks again! =)

Hey! This is a really fun looking deck! I'd like to make a few suggestions if that is cool:

Stoic Rebuttal: there is no reason to run this over Counterspell or really any other counter spell

AEtherize. Aetherspouts, Propaganda, and Dissipation Field are great for protection.

Strixhaven Stadium: can act as an alternate win con

Lotus Field, Lotus Vale, and Manascape Refractor can help if you are unable to keep Winter Orb untapped for your turn so you can play what you need to.

Maybe add some big bois like Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger and Blightsteel Colossus as other win cons and utilize the large amounts of mana you generate.

Metalworker: I know he is pricey but it is hilarious to Turn 2 a Kozilek, Butcher of Truth

Caerwyn: Reading the article you linked, it's completely counter intuitive (as you mentioned). The RC talks about a lack of diversity in running Golos as you commander and yet lists a bunch of different builds in the same article.

And even with goodstuff decks, the attitiude that one goodstuff deck looks exactly the same as another completely undermines lower levels of play (and basically any battlecruiser deck).

Bans like this will actually regress creativity, as all that will happen is that everyone will move back to running Child of Alara as their 5C goodstuff commander. Remember those days?

As for the Worldfire unbanning, isn't there somebody in the RC or CAG who has a Jhoira deck? I feel like with these unbannings, the RC/CAG should have a full list of their current decks (or at least commanders) which is live on the official commander website. I am aware that three of the RC have a list of current commanders, but that's not the whole decision making crew. Unbannings like this and Metalworker (I think somebody had a Sharuum deck at the time) feel just a little bit alterior motive-y.

Hey Gsanna, thanks for stopping by. Really appreciate the comment/ upvote and all the nice words. Happy to hear you enjoy playing the deck. It's definitely one of my personal favorites at the moment.

To answer your question, I do not play Zirda, the Dawnwaker as a companion. Reason being it would be way too difficult to meet the requirement in order to play it as a companion. It's mainly in the deck for the infinite mana combo with Basalt Monolith, but also to help reduce the activation cost on Osgir, the Reconstructor's second ability.

I do really like the idea of using Metalworker in place of Dockside Extortionist. I honestly didn't even noticed either of those combos, so thank you for bringing that to my attention. I avoided using Metalworker and Phyrexian Dreadnought in my original draft of the deck because of their high price tag, but now the more I think about it, the more I think they may be worth it.

I am currently playtesting Recruiter of the Guard and Imperial Recruiter in place of Swiftfoot Boots and Platinum Angel based off another suggestion, and have been quite happy with the results. I may look into playtesting Metalworker and Phyrexian Dreadnought in place of Dockside Extortionist and either Recruiter of the Guard or Imperial Recruiter.

Thanks again for the contributions, much appreciated. Cheers.

I'm thinking of just cutting the Glacial Chasm for a Swamp , i hasn't saved me in the one set of three games, and I don't really think that i'll truly be needing it in the future. it was there for assuming the role of archenemy, can be not paid sac'd then replayed with Crucible of Worlds creating a small lock of sorts.

My friend was the one that suggested Oblivion Sower , I like the idea of ripping lands with it, as well as it's awkward 5/8 body. I do think its a little though and reaching into the casual realm which isn't really what im looking to do.

Bitter Ordeal can technically combo with the Lotus Petal loop and exile everyones Libraries(also less color intensive), but again, i'm looking at dream land. but it sounds really nice!

After some deliberation here's what I've come to:

Minus Dreamstealer plus Opposition Agent

Why: better value, answers answers

Minus Glacial Chasm plus Swamp

Why: need access to more colored mana, land count ins fine. Chasm doesn't currently do anything and doesn't tap for mana

Minus Metalworker plus Varragoth, Bloodsky Sire

Why: Metalworker is a good card, the idea pf it still works for the deck, but it requires to much set up, Varragoth i'm hoping "gets us there" also makes the deck "possibly"

Back at it with a small tweak

- Agadeem's Awakening  Flip for + Dance of the Dead

why: I feel confident with the amount of ramp and lands that i'm playing, Awakening is a little expensive regardless of the versitility. Dance lowers my curve, grants a small buff and haste. (also I still don't have access to Necromancy so the patience continues

cards i've been considering lately, perhaps better to "sideboard" the cut for them, I would like to discuss the viabilty of these cards I have in mind for tuning.

1. Varragoth, Bloodsky Sire

Why:

Varragoth has a good body at 2/3, Deathtouch and the ability to tutor (yes i'm also considering the opposing Opposition Agent ). I'm sure we all agree that "tutoring"is good. I feel like this deck, despite not having yet played it, needs access to it's gameplay quickly.

Political? It can accomplish that. It can be in play as soon as T1 ( Dark Ritual effects, Rocks) which only helps the then shaped draw into T3. I didn't at first realize this says "1(B): "...TARGET PLAYER..." ", however now I do. I think the card has potential, only cut I currently see is Metalworker ...feels bad, maybe Tinybones, Trinket Thief ???

  1. Sadistic Sacrament

Why:

RIP combo players
