Azoth2099 on Kykar kicks ass (Suggestions needed!) (Budget)

Hey man! As someone who's brewed this one alot, I'm telling you right now you need waaay more mana rocks. Literally like 10+ rocks, plus a few rituals. The fact that they also generate a token is incredible in practice. Here's a list of the ones I'd include on top of what you already have: Fellwar Stone, Talisman of Progress, Izzet Signet, Boros Signet, Azorius Signet, Springleaf Drum, Jeweled Amulet, Lotus Petal, Pyretic Ritual, Desperate Ritual, Seething Song & Battle Hymn.

Also just so you know, Mystical Tutor, Personal Tutor, Enlightened Tutor & Gamble are all super cheap right now due to recent reprints! Gotta get it while the getting is good, ya know?

A great combo here is Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal, it generates infinite Spirit tokens on top of just being great individual utility pieces for the build outside of the combo!

Lots of great, cheap synergy pieces like Wild Research, Kindred Discovery, Opposition, Vicious Shadows, etc...

I'll stop rambling now, great Commander choice dude! Let me know how you feel about my mediocre suggestions lol.

I really like it! A tiny bit more ramp might be nice though, as it's quite land reliant right now. Arcane Signet, Commander's Sphere, Fire Diamond, Coldsteel Heart, Desperate Ritual, Pyretic Ritual, or Seething Song for a few to consider. Hope this can help a little!

Azoth2099 on Sauron, The Dark Lord Commander Deck

5 months ago

Hey dude! So I've tested Sauron quite a bit, let me give you some free game.

The most critical thing about running a 6-drop commander is...having an absolutely absurd amount of mana in the deck, if you can believe that.

I would recommend running 10+ mana rocks alongside a handful of rituals, enough to drop Sauron T3 or T4 consistently. Here's a nice list:

Rocks: Sol Ring, Arcane Signet, Fellwar Stone, Thran Dynamo, Basalt Monolith, Talisman of Dominance, Talisman of Creativity, Talisman of Indulgence, Dimir Signet, Izzet Signet, Rakdos Signet & Chromatic Lantern.

Rituals: Dark Ritual, Cabal Ritual, Culling the Weak, Burnt Offering, Sacrifice, Rite of Flame, Desperate Ritual, Pyretic Ritual & Seething Song.

If you incorporate a good amount of mana generation, you can cut down to 30 lands and be waaay more consistent. And then once you power him out you can slap stuff like Conqueror's Flail on him and smack everybody around like a proper villain!

Cheers m8, happy holidays!

So having tested Sauron, the Dark Lord into the dirt since his release, I think you're gonna need to get him on the board waaay faster than this list is currently doing if you really want to be mean like that. I'd recommend a few of the following "means" lol:

Rocks: Talisman of Dominance, Talisman of Creativity, Talisman of Indulgence, Dimir Signet, Rakdos Signet, Izzet Signet, Fellwar Stone & Springleaf Drum

Rituals: Dark Ritual, Cabal Ritual, Culling the Weak, Burnt Offering, Sacrifice, Rain of Filth, Bubbling Muck, High Tide, Rite of Flame, Infernal Plunge, Pyretic Ritual, Desperate Ritual & Seething Song.

Cost Reducers: Nightscape Familiar, Sapphire Medallion, Jet Medallion, Ruby Medallion, Cloud Key & Urza's Incubator.

And then there are other value pieces like Conqueror's Flail to go along with The Reaver Cleaver to help you get out of hand once he's summoned, & Faerie Mastermind to draw you cards while your commander builds your board from your opponents actions. Mystic Remora is also great in this sense and is still pretty cheap compared to Rhystic Study. Teferi's Ageless Insight is another banger post-commander that should be considered imo, especially since you can't run Necropotence as efficiently as other decks can.

For more villainy, consider Dauthi Voidwalker, Opposition Agent, Praetor's Grasp, Mnemonic Betrayal, Bribery, Acquire & maybe even something like Empress Galina to really peeve your pod.

Peace!

As a person who plays mono red prison I can tell you that 4 gemstone caverns are normally too many. I would cut one in favor of another ritual (probably Pyretic Ritual to help ensure the possible turn 1 moon/fable. Mazemind tome also feels slightly out of place since since your early game revolves around creatures and speeding up higher costing things. Do you really want to be taking turns off to scry? I'm not saying it wouldn't be useful at some point but the early game isn't it. I would trim some copies to avoid having them as early. I know this may sound crazy, but perhaps replace 1-2 mazeminds with Mutagenic Growth. The reason I think this might be viable is that people will often keep questionable hands with removal to fight ragavan. As such you might get lucky and be able to blow them out with a suprise pump spell. Not to mention that the only common removal that will kill your dragon is fury and being able to pump against it seems real good to me. Especially if you are playing against the beanstalk decks who's other removal is solitude and leyline binding (which dragon has protection from already).

As far as the sideboard goes, I would up the dismember count, drop the pillage and defense grid and maybe trim on chalice. I'm not sure what you're looking to combat with it. My suggestion is to add a couple Obsidian Charmaw as a way to slow down things like tron, or dirupt 4/5 color decks that really rely on leyline binding. Plus it's really fun to copy with a flipped fable since you are just putting them down a land instead of replacing it like a field of ruin would. Anyhow thats my main thoughts and I hope they might help you. (One small note: You have Koth listed in your deck description when he's not in the deck...not majorly important but I thought you might want to edit that out.)

You need way more ramp in this list if you want it to be consistent with it's curve. Pyretic Ritual, Desperate Ritual, Seething Song & Battle Hymn are all great here. A few more rocks would do you some good as well, like Thran Dynamo & Basalt Monolith. The ones that you usually see in multicolor decks like Arcane Signet & Fellwar Stone are still pretty solid in monocolor builds that aren't .

Treasonous Ogre & Birgi, God of Storytelling  Flip are classic bangers that can help ramp you out, with the added benefit of pseudo card-draw on Birgi's flip side.

More card draw and tutors never hurts, either. Tectonic Reformation is pretty nice here since you're running so many lands, & Gamble is one of the best tutors in the game. Fervent Mastery is worth considering, but can obviously be especially punishing for non-graveyard decks. Reckless Handling is pretty nice if you're running some dank artifacts, which you are! Imperial Recruiter is another classic that I wouldn't necessarily recommend for this iteration of your list, but may come in handy later.

Other enchantments to consider here in my opinion are Molten Echoes, Sneak Attack & Mana Echoes as grease for your deck engine. Running Underworld Breach would allow you to more comfortably run draw pieces like Faithless Looting, Thrill of Possibility, Cathartic Reunion, Tormenting Voice, Wheel of Fortune, Magus of the Wheel & Wheel of Misfortune. Also certain stax pieces like Blood Moon, Price of Glory & Stranglehold to help shut down whatever your opponents are trying to do.

Universal Automaton seems like great value here as well, but I could understand not including it. Wandering Archaic  Flip on the other hand I would 100% recommend for any & all monocolor decks.

Good luck refining your list!

Hey man! Good to hear from you, nice job refining this list so far!

Yeah, Avacyn, Angel of Hope is stupid expensive lol, she probably always will be just because of how awesome she is. Proxy it in the meantime? Hell, I'd proxy an Ancient Copper Dragon too, they both win games.

Concerning Burning-Rune Demon: This card tends to get cut from a lot of decks that aren't running winning lines for it. Personally, my Kaalia of the Vast list also includes Dockside Extortionist, Corpse Dance & Disciple of the Vault, which enables Burning-Rune Demon to grab Razaketh, the Foulblooded & Reanimate to enable either a same-turn win or a next-turn win by generating infinite Treasures (and infinite Life via Children of Korlis) and nuking the board. It's also really good in Reanimator lists that are running the aforementioned pieces, as well as cards like Animate Dead, Necromancy, Buried Alive, Victimize & Karmic Guide to accelerate sheer board value if you don't want to run combos like that. If you apply it creatively, it essentially acts as an uncounterable Intuition in the deck, but for no mana cost & at Sorcery speed. Not the worst...

Concerning catching Ws: the #1 thing that's going to snag you wins here is making sure that you capitalize on the Commander's value as quickly as possible, as well as making sure that your deck doesn't necessarily need it's Commander on the field to dominate. You need more ramp and card draw, simply. I'd add the following ASAP:

Ramp: Culling the Weak, Dark Ritual, Burnt Offering, Cabal Ritual, Pyretic Ritual, Desperate Ritual, Seething Song, Talisman of Indulgence, Talisman of Hierarchy, Talisman of Conviction, Fellwar Stone Lotho, Corrupt Shirriff, & Deep Gnome Terramancer

Draw/Tutors: Archivist of Oghma, Moon-Blessed Cleric, Tectonic Reformation, Diabolic Intent, Gamble, Grim Tutor, Idyllic Tutor, Steelshaper's Gift & Sarkhan's Triumph.

Also, I know you've stated that you are trying to stay withing certain budget constraints, but Demonic Tutor, Vampiric Tutor & Enlightened Tutor have seen recent reprints, and are cheaper right now than they will be in the future. Just something to consider.

All of these will help you get on and stay on! Let me know what you think.

Hey man, have you considered adding more rituals & mana rocks to this list? With the Commander being a 7-drop, you need all the mana you can get.

Consider finding space for Arcane Signet, Mana Vault, Talisman of Dominance, Talisman of Creativity, Talisman of Indulgence, Fellwar Stone, Pyretic Ritual, Seething Song, Culling the Weak & maybe even Drain Power.

Essence Flux & Dauthi Voidwalker are also really great here, & some Reanimator pieces like Reanimate, Animate Dead & Necromancy could help maximize on Xander's 2nd triggered ability.
