Niko9 on Ramos's Dragon Horde

Ramos is a really awesome commander. Big giant clockwork dragon that can do any number of things in any number of ways, yep, so cool. I've never built Ramos, just thought about it a few times, but what do you think about having ways to power counters onto Ramos and pay off his mana ability? Things like:

Kalonian Hydra

Sword of Hours

Doubling Cube

Karn's Bastion

Solidarity of Heroes

Avabruck Caretaker  Flip

Hardened Scales

Luminarch Aspirant

and Slippery Bogbonder can be really good, giving Ramos permeant hexproof, moving all counters to him, adding a counter to Ramos, and also being a counter to removal. Snakeskin Veil can be similar but more limited.

There are a ton more, but I don't know, it's just something I'd been thinking about with Ramos. Looks like an awesome dragony list you have!

Cards like Blossoming Defense and Snakeskin Veil give your creatures hexproof plus a little toughness buff. Rabid Bite and Blizzard Brawl or Prey Upon give you some removal options.

If he plays T1 Guul Draz Assassin, T2 level up, you might be able to just outnumber that, with T1 Elvish Mystic, T2 Elvish Mystic and Llanowar Elves. This isn't an unreasonable start and gives you a significant board and mana advantage. With a playset each of Llanowelves, Mystics, and Arbor Elfs, you should be able to make a fast, reliable start and get around the Assassin play. Dark Ritual gives a big shot of mana for one turn, but Elves are capable of sustaining that level of mana production. Good luck!

Something tells me protection isn't really what you're needing for this strategy; I'd remove Snakeskin Veil, as it doesn't provide nearly enough of a buff to aid your ASAP strategy. Replacement options could be anything from Groundswell to Prey's Vengeance to Viridescent Wisps for some card draw.

Sorin_Markov_1947 Thanks, I like that advise. I'll make those adjustments. I have to admit I hate playing against Snakeskin Veil

All basics is not a good strategy right now. Faceless Haven is good, but if you're worried about mana, Den of the Bugbear and Lair of the Hydra are two of the better manlands and they go in this deck nicely.

I feel like Snakeskin Veil is much stronger than Roil Eruption here given the prevalence of Izzet and Dimir in the format.

I love the super-wide deck idea, don't forget some protective cards such as Heroic Intervention or even Snakeskin Veil.

Nayru_Incarnate on Yisan, my first commander deck

Seems like a solid deck… except for the use of your commander. A lot of commander is about playing off your commander’s strengths and for Yisan, that’s about getting counters onto him and having them stay there. For example, cards like Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider will double the number of verse counters (proliferate will help with that as well,) cards like Benefactor's Draught will untap Yisan so you can use his ability again. Cards like Snakeskin Veil will also help with keeping Yisan on the board.
