Reznorboy on Klothys Hates Your Lands

41 minutes ago

So, I always wanted to make a Klothys Land Destruction deck too, but never did (I like land destruction, the colors were right, more mana, good idea right?) I never did, but I did make something else that may interest you.This is a deck I made. Basically, instead of Klothys, I made Ramos, Dragon Engine my commander. I also added a lot more storm elements to the deck, and I used hatebears to slow down the game to get me to storm time. I also made another deck with Oloro, Ageless Ascetic as a land destruction commander (that deck was considerably more interesting). In short, land destruction can come in many forms, and don't be afraid to experiment, though I am glad someone else had the same idea as me and went through with it.

Gleeock on What is Your Opinion of ...

DemonDragonJ for me it is not so much about restrictions & it is more about identity. I like it when, for example-lets say, Rakdos is the color of crazy politics... So you have that player that sortof specializes as that crazy politics Rakdos guy, but then its: well, WUBRG politics does it better. WUBRG should be rare & historically connected characters of major import, like Ramos, Dragon Engine. People may like them but: Golos, Tireless Pilgrim, Kenrith, the Returned King, Najeela, the Blade-Blossom are superfluous... This comes from someone who likes Kenrith very much. So yeah, color identity is important to me & it says something to me when a player sticks to their guns on their specialty.

NeonEndymion Just getting around to look at your comments in more details now.. I remember looking at Magmaquake earlier and it would be great if it wasn't for that double red mana and Jegantha... lol

Considered your advice and made the following changes: Feels like it made an overall improvement to the deck, I will add Dragonlord Silumgar and Fire Covenant when/if I manage to get my hands on them. Thanks again for the help.

In: Heroic Intervention - Out: Arcane Denial

In: Steely Resolve - Out: Path to Exile

In: Morophon, the Boundless - Out: Chromium, the Mutable

In: Ramos, Dragon Engine - Out: Hypersonic Dragon

In: Steel Hellkite - Out: Spellbound Dragon

In: Rhythm of the Wild - Out: Negate

Mj3913 on The 'Ultimate' Idea

2 weeks ago

So now that we have 10 Ultimatums I was thinking of making a deck out of them (not that I need another project XD). The first commander to come to mind was Ramos, Dragon Engine, though if you have another idea I'd love to hear it.

One concern I have is being as there are 10 Ultimatums all at 7cmc (10% of the deck) it could clog up the hand if we dont create another use for them like 'CMC matters' cards. Ramos does creates 10 mana for 5 counters, however each Ultimatum requires one color at 3 so I think some mana filters should be added as well.

Also of those Ultimatums Clarion Ultimatum is virtually useless in this format unless you're running Persistant Petitioners|Petitioners, Rats, or Apostles so we'll count it out unless someone comes up with a fantastic idea. A few are about playing cards for free and a few require that you have permanants in your deck/grave/field. I was initially thinking of a 'Non creature spell' theme but I'm not sure it would fit. Too much layering as Suns_Champion would say. If you'd like to weigh in here SC that'd be amazing.

So, how would you all do it? What spicy tech would you immediately toss in here to make it shine?. Let me know in the comments, and any other ideas you may have.

I'll post a list when I have one. Until then the results of suggestions are:

  • 8/10 Ultimatums included
  • Commander changed to Jodah, Archmage Eternal
  • Exploring 'Noncreature Spell' theme
  • Not many useful 'Noncreature Spell' related cards' Now exploring an Enchantress subtheme.
  • Exploring 'High CMC Matters' sub theme
  • all suggestions are being considered at this time. Will inform of any changes.

DeinoStinkus on What commander should I build?

3 weeks ago

I run Sen Triplets, Ramos, Dragon Engine (Ramos Locos Combos!), and Wort, the Raidmother. Korvold, Fae-Cursed King can be a fun build, I once did a Korvold with Treasure.

Giver of Runes, in my opinion, is superior to Alseid of Life's Bounty. Proliferate would be appreciated in this deck, and I question your non-usage of Ramos, Dragon Engine as a commander. However, it is a cool deck idea, and I wish you the ebst of luck with it!
