Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant  Flip maybe? Maybe try it as an alternate commander. You could attack and block with your samurai with impunity.

Maskwood Nexus?

I have a Sapling of Colfenor deck with a bunch of tricks that revolve around an Indestructible boss. Nemesis Mask, Avarice Amulet and Coercive Portal would work with any color. (I see you have the mask in already).

How do you not have Konda's Banner in already? Its his own banner!

Whip is perfect, will definitely add it to they maybe board. I just bought the new BG commander precon and will add in Sapling of Colfenor . Any other thoughts on cards from the list that might help? I'm actually considering Willowdusk, Essence Seer .

After trying over and over again, I've finally found a version of Thantis, the Warweaver I like:

Warweaver's Chant

Commander / EDH seshiro_of_the_orochi


I know you'd usually include Revenge of Ravens style effects, but I decided against them on purpose, as I wanted to focus on creature combat, anthem effects, Fog s, lifegain and especially vigilance. You could say I'm kind of a Timmy ;) I'm not totally opposed to adding them in if I learn that the deck simply doesn't work without them, but I'd prefer holding the current course.

The result is the linked list. After adding Toski, Bearer of Secrets because of the great synergy between its indestructibility and the deck's ability of granting vigilance, I'll also add in Sapling of Colfenor soon.

As you'd imagine, thanks to Covid, I've had no chance to test the deck yet in an actual game.

My questions to the community:

With the given direction, do you have ideas I could take my 8-legged friend in? How do you like the general idea? Do you think the direction I took it in is stupid? Please let me know.

I'll build Gyome, Master Chef troll tribal. Even if it's just for the lols (you know, feeding the troll and stuff...). Beledros Witherbloom is pretty cool and I could imagine playing her. But that's about it. I am pretty happy about the reprint of Sapling of Colfenor , and I can't wait to add her to Thantis, the Warweaver The rest of the commanders from both the main set and the commander decks don't really speak to me.

"Toughness Matters" is definitely an alternative name I've used before, and it does help to include a broader set of cards like Sapling of Colfenor , Kin-Tree Invocation , and Grizzled Leotau that only rarely find themselves in the average defender deck.

This deck leans really heavily on three drops. The mutate mechanic needs some lower cost creatures to get started. I see you have Slippery Bogle and Paradise Druid as low drop creatures that are hard to remove. You may want to find a few more. Gladecover Scout and Silhana Ledgewalker are good hexproof creature to add. Mana dorks are also good to mutate onto as well. Llanowar Elves et al. are fine, Birds of Paradise is probably better. I would cut some of your three drops to add some of these.

Cold-Eyed Selkie seems like a great inclusion. Dreamstealer, Cephalid Constable, and Needle Specter play with the same area in different ways.

Predator Ooze seems strong in this archetype. Creepy Doll, Darksteel Myr, Sapling of Colfenor, and Stuffy Doll might also give you some good indestructible options.

The balance between hexproof and indestructible seems like a challenge, but you kinda get both from Thrun, the Last Troll and Troll Ascetic. A few other higher cmc hexproof creature you may find interesting Witchstalker and Aven Fleetwing.

Teferi's Time Twist and other effects that blink creatures can make your single large "Voltron" creature into a small army.

Swiftfoot Boots is also a nice inclusion, but stay away from Lightning Greaves

Doran was my 2nd EDH deck I ever built. I ended up converting him to an Arcades because I think Arcades is better overall. Though, one of my favorite EDH moments was when someone attacked me with an unblocked dragon then they pumped them up +1/0 fire breathing 14 times. I laughed since power means nothing with Doran out (Something Arcades doesn't stop).

Also, there is an awesome combo with Tree of Perdition that you may already know. If you can give it vigilance, attack, then activate its ability if its unblocked, it is almost always a 1KO hit. Sadly, I was only able to get this to go off once.

When you continue cutting I would recommend asking your self if the card checks more than one box. If it can't then maybe its a good cut. There obvious exceptions like Indomitable Ancients since a 10/10 for 4 is great. But cards like Sapling of Colfenor is what you want your deck filled with. Its got high toughness, great key word with indestructibility, life-gain, and card draw all with 1 card.

Otherwise you can try playtesting it on tapped out and try to figure out what ends up being lackluster compared to the others. Best of luck with Doran. He's a fun political build. No one bothers the guy with defenders until its too late.

I mean, they have tried some things.

  1. Deathtouch tribal (Vraska, for example)

  2. Toughness matters (Sapling of Colfenor)
