Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage Discussion

Sun Titan, Faith's Reward, and Second Sunrise would be great for recursion.

The Seals in your commander’s colors, Wayfarer's Bauble, Soul-Guide Lantern, Inspiring Vantage, and Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage are also some cards to consider.

Hope this helps!

If you ever did decide to crew your commander, then Intruder Alarm will let you go infinite without other artifact untappers. I'm assuming that's why it's here, as another backup plan.

It may be too slow for you, but if you ever planned to play a version that was more synergistic and value-based as opposed to infinite combo based, Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage can let you run the deck at instant speed.

Here are some cards to consider dear brother:

Remember, really look at what you're throwing in. Half of these cards have no function, and don't do anything for the deck. I'll leave it to you (for now) to figure out which ones fall under this. One that I'll give you is Nahiri, Storm of Stone. You've got very little equipment, and equipment is not the focus of the deck here.

A good start, but remember what I've taught you. Keep it up!

Thought you'd appreciate the true singleton format for this one. As for why Vorinclex, well it seems like Spike and Timmy have helped you figure that out ;)

Urza's Ruinous Blast and Primevals' Glorious Rebirth : Originally these were contestants, but this started out as a Party Matters deck (Wizard, Cleric, Warrior, Rogues) but I ended up not having enough of a balance of those types to warrant focusing heavily on the mechanic.

Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain : The point of the deck is to not cast the legendary spells. Also, she has her own deck.

Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage : This is one that was cut after deciding I had too many Wizards when I was still looking at Party Matters. Might warrant revisiting.

Kamahl's Druidic Vow : The primary reason this isn't in the deck is I don't have it. Otherwise I dunno what I'd cut.

Marchesa, the Black Rose and Shalai, Voice of Plenty : Damn that's a good combo. I'll need to source a Marchesa, but I have a Shalai coming in the Secret Lair drop. WHAT TO CUT?!

Day of Destiny : Don't has. Would be glorious w/ Arvad the Cursed .

Anafenza, the Foremost : Similarly, don't has. Will have to source as it's glorious.

Blackblade Reforged : Too many other good options to include this, unfortunately.

Heroes' Podium : I really like this one. Didn't know it existed. Will have to source.

Farseek : No idea what to cut. Also probably didn't find it when going through cards and was giving priority to LEGENDS

Thran Temporal Gateway : I've no excuse as to why this ain't in except that I wanted to use Sisay to cheat, not anything else. Which isn't a good excuse but it is mine.

Fblthp, the Lost : Wow yeah I do need one of these.

Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite : Wouldn't go in here anyway. She'd go into Mono-White. And I'm not gonna get my hopes up on getting more than one.

Avacyn, Angel of Hope : If I had an extra, lol. She's basically an auto-include in any white deck.

Sigarda, Host of Herons : See above.

Eerie Ultimatum : Another card that...I wish I had.

Ruinous Ultimatum : Ehh,, I feel like one ultimatum is a bit much for the deck and I'd rather Eerie.

Weatherlight : Valid point. Now, ugh gotta figure out how to fit it in.

Legacy Weapon : Bad Vorthos. Bad.

Rhystic Study : Bad Spike. Bad

Curiosity : ...bad Johnny, bad.

A white-blue artifact synergy commander that's not Hanna you say...? So you mean Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage?

I like your ways :D Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage is something I was looming to build for some time now, but Brago took my Azorius slot for my commanders for now.

I really like instant speed disruption strategies. I haven't seen this kind of deck before personally. I really like the win condition.

Other good decks for instant speed mass disruption strategies that may interest you are Sidisi, Undead Vizier (you can search for Shimmer Myr and play something like a Nevinyrral's Disk followed by Voltaic Key), or play Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage and do similar things. K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth can also play lots of cards like Tragic Slip and Necropotence. Basically, any commander that has Flash-giving abilities, tutoring, and or mass mana giving and/or drawing capabilities can be built like this in the right conditions.
