I think it works really well with her powers as someone who sees and alters fates. I'd like to see a card, preferrably a commander, with a unique built-in pillowfort method.

Current methods or deterrence:

Full Protection: Blazing Archon, Peacekeeper, and Glacial Chasm

Conditional Protection: Arboria, Elephant Grass

(Mana) Tax effects: Ghostly Prison, Propaganda, Archangel of Tithes, Archon of Absolution, Forbidding Spirit, Elephant Grass, Windborn Muse, Baird, Steward of Argive, and War Tax (My favorite, I love the politics!)

Other costs: Norn's Annex, Reclamation, Flooded Woodlands

Hurt the attacking creature: Barbed Foliage, Briar Patch, Sarkhan the Masterless, Lightmine Field, and Lost in the Woods

Hurt the attacking player: Revenge of Ravens, Hissing Miasma, Blood Reckoning, Marchesa's Decree, Riddlekeeper? (Is this even a downside? It's not a cost, per the rules.)

Protect/Help you, the defending player: Revenge of Ravens, Righteous Cause, Orim's Prayer, Isperia, Supreme Judge, Search the Premises, Thantis, the Warweaver, Slumbering Dragon

I don't count Aurification-style effects, as the damage was already dealt.

I'm gonna take a wild guess and say Thantis, the Warweaver is the Commander? If so, I'd add CMDR to the side of him in the decklist, so that way it's more apparent.

Maybe Thantis, the Warweaver and Kardur, Doomscourge to channel all the spite? In that vein, Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs seems useful.

This is my Thantis, the Warweaver list. I'm putting the main focus and granting Vigilance to fatties and winning by abusing some lifegain triggers a la Blossoming Bogbeast . It's kinda hard to get feedback on the list due to Thantis propably being the most open-ended Jund commander that rver junded ever.

I've always been curious about Thantis, the Warweaver as it seems like it could be quite a political deck without being the typical pillow-fort, defensive style, and these types of decks often make play experience more fun. I guess my question is how does this play? Do you use Thantis politically to keep your opponents hitting each other and not you? Do people enjoy being at the table with this deck win or lose? I'm curious mostly because I want to find a deck to pull out the for the game after I destroy the group with nasty combos that they know they'll have more fun with, and Josh and Jimmy on CZ suggested that Thantis was such a commander.

I 2nd Thantis, the Warweaver . The commander often has great impact on the game when it does come down... but if you build it right you don't HAVE to play the commander to be effective, which is the sweet spot for me.

Thantis, the Warweaver is my latest hobby-room-deck. You can basically do whatever you want with it. Also, how about a colour-cropped Codie, Vociferous Codex ?
