Thantis, the Warweaver Discussion

Coward_Token on Commander Legends Spoilers

1 month ago

Court of Virtue: not too bad, even though I think it's unfairly costed compared to the one. I'll probably add this to my Marisi deck; has surprisingly few ways of steadily making evasive tokens, and the monarch is obvious great for encouraging conflict

Livio, Oathsworn Knight: more experimentation with card advantage. As alluded to, if he's your commander then you're free to recast him and tap him down for the creatures he got tucked away

Belbe, Corrupted Observer: not bad in the 99 of a Thantis, the Warweaver deck, although note that she doesn't trigger off just damage (let alone combat damage), so a simple Impact Tremors or exploit will net people . (You're not allowed to run Sygg, River Cutthroat in her 99 because the RC hates you.)

Toggo, Goblin Weaponsmith:

PW!Jeska: hey, finally. Slam dunk in the 99 of Tahngarth, First Mate. 15 power's worth of pain coming your opponent's way 4 times a turn cycle!

Jeska's Will: Not super excited tbh, but it's reassuring that they're exploring the aikido design space of punishing excess, esp. in &

Archon of Coronation: Pretty clever that this lets you weather the back-and-forth of the monarch as your opponents are less likely to hit you when you're not crowned. Beware of infect tho.

Eligeth, Crossroads Augur: The Scarab God

Wheel of Misfortune: took me a while to parse, but basically don't be the one to pick the highest OR the lowest number (unless you want to keep your hand, in which case I think you're free to pick minus infinity). I assume if e.g. one player chooses 1 and the rest 0, nobody wheels (but the former still gets a single ouchie)

Rograkh, Son of Rohgahh: Ha.

DemonDragonJ: maybe Prossh just got a mate?

Thantis, the Warweaver & Marisi, breaker of coils. Marisi is a little less political by nature since he is taking away more choices, but there are still plenty of political cards.

Thantis, the Warweaver or Marisi, Breaker of the Coil. Both make sure that gifts are delightfully causing action

Phostration on Attack Me But Don't Hurt …

My first commander deck. There have been a couple of legendaries that I have seen and thought, "you know that looks like it would be fun as a commander/brawl," but Thantis, the Warweaver made me say "Ok, I gotta put a deck together."

Behold my Thantis deck Attack Me But Don't Hurt Me UwU (WIP).

I knew from the start that I wanted 3 things to happen:

  1. I wanted to make ALOT of tokens on my side of the field AND on the opponents side of the field,

  2. I wanted to make it so that the opponent is forced to attack me each turn and,

  3. To make it so that their creatures attacking cause them to lose life and I gain life or counters etc, while when I attack, I deal TONS OF DAMAGE.

I would say the enchantments make a pretty good majority of the theme cards. There are some important Creature cards like Hungry Lynx, Goblin Spymaster, and Grismold, the Dreadsower, but others like Adun Oakenshield and Urabrask the Hidden are for their pure utility.

I am used to making Modern and Casual Kitchen table decks so trying to figure out which card to take out and which card to not have at all in the deck has been interesting. 100 singles is ALOT harder than 60 with a limit of 4 on each card.

I'm not looking to be winning tournaments with this deck, but I do want to be able to have fun and winning is a nice little bonus :).

Suggestions are appreciated and memes are welcome, so why not both?

Thantis, the Warweaver will never be accepted as a cedh commander
but with that said
if you give up on the timmy aggro and build a powerful jund combo deck
utilizing Thantis, the Warweaver for the goad effect only
(as you stated yourself it is good for tapping down utility creatures)
you could play at a much higher power level then you opponents would be expecting to deal with
