Sovereign Okinec Ahau

Legendary Creature — Cat

Ward (Whenever this creature becomes the target of a spell or ability an opponent controls, counter it unless that player pays .)

Whenever Sovereign Okinec Ahau attacks, for each creature you control with power greater than that creature's base power, put a number of +1/+1 counters on that creature equal to the difference.

Dylls If you're only using +1/+1 counters, that works as a rule. If a creature's power is being raised by another source, like the Swords of _ and __ in this deck, Sovereign Okinec Ahau will count that for its ability. If a 1/1 with no counters and equipped with Sword of Fire and Ice is out when SOA attacks, that creature will get two +1/+1 counters.

I wouldn't have seen it if it wasn't for Last Laugh's comment!

Sovereign Okinec Ahau actually reads Whenever it attacks, double the number of +1/+1 counters on each creature you control...

Or am I wrong?

Sovereign Okinec Ahau is another card with potential here.

There isn't a rhino-specific commander, but what traits do rhinos have? Bulky bodies, a lot of trample and trample-ish evasion, and some stall with cards like Stonehorn Dignitary and Rhox Meditant.

I would say look for a subtheme and choose a commander based on that. Dragonlord Dromoka and Karametra, God of Harvests are good utility options for protection and ramp, respectively. If you're pumping the Rhinos, Sovereign Okinec Ahau pushes that into overdrive.

I got a lot of these decks in need of commanders. Please send over suggestions for

Enchantments: Citadel of Pain + Manabarbs + Personal Sanctuary sort of thing. I know Go-Shintai of Life's Origin exists, but I'm not interested in adding and/or to this one.

Curses and curse themed Auras: Lynde, Cheerful Tormentor + Eriette of the Charmed Apple. Again, I'm not interested in adding .


"Bleeder" attrition: Value over time. Awakening Zone, Suture Priest, Kambal, Consul of Allocation, that sort of thing.

Crow_Umbra First, ty for taking a look and posting. Good catch on Broodmoth, it definitely deserves a spot. I'll have to keep a few of those in mind, especially the cheap go-wide counters and Kodama. Can you think of any cheap early game token production like Call the Coppercoats/Flurry of Wings/Scepter of Celebration that will produce a decent chunk of bodies and possibly scale well as the game progresses? I feel like going wide early needs another slot or 2 for consistency.

I spotted the Sovereign Okinec Ahau while building, but that wording is confusing trash... is it everything attacking with less than Sovereign's power gets +1+1 counters equal to the difference? (I.e. he's 3 power and him and some 1/1's attack, the 1/1's all get 2x +1+1 counters to bring them to 3 power too?) If so, yeah it 100% deserves a spot.

The struggle I had in building this is prioritizing between a bit of go-wide early game creatures (mainly tokens), +1+1 counters, historic, and flash speed casting. I had to drop several payoffs I was eyeballing like counter/token doublers, the Ozolith, etc.

A bit surprised you don't have Luminous Broodmoth in here, since 13th Doc cares about any counters on your creatures. Also surprised The Ozolith isn't in here.

I brewed up a Sovereign Okinec deck a few months ago, and that was all stuff I had in consideration for that deck.

To build off of lhetrick13's feedback, but I think you could replace Raksha Golden Cub with Sovereign Okinec Ahau. Sovereign is much lower to the ground, and works well with the pumping abilities you already have in the command zone, and sprinkled across your various cat lords. I think most people look at Sovereign and think it needs to be in a dedicated +1/+1 counter deck, but it is right at home in any strategy that can anthem up its creatures.

Additionally, I think you could replace Paladin Class with Flowering of the White Tree, if you're not against Universes Beyond cards. It gives all your Legends a static Ward 1, and anthems up your entire board. It's essentially the first 2 levels of Paladin Class with less mana investment needed, and a better baseline buff for your Legendary creatures. I've really liked it in the aggro decks I use it in.
