Ranger-Captain of Eos

Creature — Human Soldier

When this enters the battlefield, you may search your library for a creature card with converted mana cost/mana value 1 or less, reveal it, put it into your hand, then shuffle your library.

Sacrifice this: Your opponents can't cast noncreature spells this turn.

I first read it as "Urza, Land Protector" and was quite confused, as he's not very environmentally friendly. Kinda sad that the melding ability isn't what blows up the world but w/e.

Decent Recruiter of the Guard allusion for the never-ending quest for white card advantage. Queen Kayla bin-Kroog is doing the same for boros; Ranger-Captain of Eos and Gavony Dawnguard are going to go up in price.

Surge Engine is part of a cycle I assume. Sorry defender-matters cards!

Kinda want EDH!Mishra to make Assembly-Worker copies but w/e. Kinda funny that he's the more combo-y one while EHD!Urza is more aggro. Note that Mishra can copy legendary artifacts.

What is the "best" way to Turbofog in 2022?

Turbofog is a deck that has been on my mind lately; and have been wondering what the best way to play the deck is these days.

I first got turned on to this playstyle utilizing Isochron Scepter with spell package of Dawn Charm/Angel's Grace and good ol' Wrath of God to eventually get into a win condition of choice like Hoofprints of the Stag/Luminarch Ascension...Then I started researching some more recent deck lists and saw some new ways to play the deck using creature recursion through Abiding Grace, Ranger-Captain of Eos, Spore Frog/Kami of False Hope...

It seems very interesting and the lifegain seems like it can be a huge boon for the deck in some matches. I am wondering if anyone has piloted Turbofog anytime recently and had any input on this subject because I haven't touched the deck since like 2015.

Big update with Dominaria United! King Darien XLVIII makes such a huge difference in the deck. It passively buffs all of my creatures, which is amazing. But, more importantly, it also provides a board where I can Collected Company or Chord of Calling out my Walking Ballista, and it will live. The Ballista is the best choice for the deck anyways, since it works with both Vizier of Remedies and Devoted Druid as well as Heliod, Sun-Crowned. So Ranger-Captain of Eos is back as well to round the whole thing out.

On top of that, I'm trying out something new. Since Melira, Sylvok Outcast will continue to be relevant forever, as infect shifts to poison, I'm thinking about how to sub her out for game 2. If my opponent doesn't have infect or poison, Melira, Sylvok Outcast can start to hinder instead of help. I'll already have Vizier of Remedies and Heliod, Sun-Crowned for the Kitchen Finks combo. So instead of continuing to hurt the Devoted Druid and Vizier of Remedies combo for game 2, I'm seeing how substituting Fiend Artisan for Melira, Sylvok Outcast will go for now. Seems like a good fit, and could be versatile enough to make sense.

Additionally, Ajani, Sleeper Agent is amazing. A potentially 3 costing planeswalker on the side to Glittering Wish for just can't be beat. And it's also fantastically good

@DawnsRayofLight

Thank you! (I got a sideboard as well if you're interested = 京 An illusion? (SideBoard) 京 = bit outdated but still handy...)

I know I haven't been most active on here anymore and haven't updated it at all indeed. Been playing her a lot though but have had a small dip in activity due to shops closing, and going broke but never stopped playing her since she came out... + just been playing her online... Won over hundreds of Commander events/leagues with her easily...

I'd like to keep the list as Cutthroat and Competitive as possible and not toy around with strategies that don't really compare like random blink, wizard-shell, etc...

Flashy wins are redundant for Derevi, and if you are consistently leaving gaps and misplaying you'll get blown out pretty fast. this primer still holds up to this day with minor tweaks that could increase its power a bit...

If the power of your meta is lacking though and not everyone is playing cEDH lists and BIS/META decks you'll need to adjust some cards and add more specific hate... No Tournament or League is the same if you have even the slightest info on what is going to show up or what is currently relevant. Going in blind this list still holds up perfectly fine though.


Cards that have been released and have been in and out of the list or are still in if you're interested:


The strategy you might be interested in is flickering Derevi, Empyrial Tactician with Emiel the Blessed to untap Circle of Dreams Druid or Gaea's Cradle and generate infinite mana for Finale of Devastation.

Hi there friend, nice deck brew! I really love the lich theme.

I have a few recomendations for you:

-Ranger-Captain of Eos could be great to tutor for Viscera Seer and also to protect your combos twice.

-Selenia, Dark Angel could help you get to the lich state of no life.

-Eidolon of Blossoms and Welcoming Vampire can be a great draw engines.

-Greater Auramancy can be a good protection.

-Thalia, Heretic Cathar to slow your opponents.

I'm brewing a Myrkul enchantress deck, when it's up in tappedout it would be great to hear your suggestions.

See you :)

White has gotten some great toys of card draw.

Other cards like.

And to a lesser degree.

Also my cmdr Djeru, With Eyes Open will always replace its self with elspeth.

lhetrick13 glad that at least some of the information was helpful! To put it briefly, yes, that was more or less what I was saying with points 1 & 2. Those adventure knights are fantastic cards, but when building around CoCo those "modal spells" can seem subpar and force you to use them sub optimally. It is still personal preference as there is nothing wrong with these cards! Adding some extra creatures would be a nice way to smooth that out!

There are a few really nice pieces with Dauntless Bodyguard that aren't immediately noticeable if you are not familiar with it--I played a ton of him in standard and casual formats and I love that card! Here's a few things to think about:

  1. Aggressive stat line -- Being a 1 mana 2/1 may not be the most impressive stat line now, but worst case scenario playing him naked and just going aggro if your hand permits it is never a "bad" plan.

  2. CoCo synergy -- Hitting the bodyguard and a relevant threat in the same hit can change the flow of the game sometimes!

  3. Mana value -- Speaking of CoCo synergy, it might look like you're losing mana value off of CoCo if you hit the bodyguard; however, this is sneakily more complicated. Obviously, the dream is to hit two Knight Exemplars, correct (4 CMC spell, 6 CMC return, net +)? Well, that won't happen very often... However, hitting one of them and then having access to a bodyguard is much more likely. Dauntless Bodyguard effectively forces an opponent to then answer the true threat (at minimum) twice. The Guard and Threat are equivalent to on their own, so that's mana parody, but now factor in the first removal spell (Fatal Push, Any Red Removal) which gets fizzled by indestructible trigger and then the next spell they have to use. Now, you're at a minimum of mana parody of (CoCo hit) and then card advantage/tempo gain over your opponent of (roughly) +.... equivalent to the mana from earlier! Obviously, this isn't fool proof but it is worth knowing!

If you wanna get super spicey, you could also add in Ranger-Captain of Eos to tutor for one and shuffle the deck after you decide you don't want the Bodyguard hit on CoCo lol


Sorry I kinda went on a tangent there, it really is your choice!!!! It's a playstyle thing, and if you don't want to try the bodyguard out that's cool -- it's technically cleaner on mana without it!

In other news, here are a few CoCo articles:

Hopefully those can help! Also, if this is a little sloppy I am writing this out while "trying" to pay attention in class... so.... yea..... I can elaborate on stuff later and we can back and forth this list for a while to find something you love!
