Winds of Abandon

Sorcery

Exile target creature you don't control. For each creature exiled this way, its controller searches their library for a basic land card. Those players put those cards onto the battlefield tapped, then shuffle their libraries.

Overload (You may cast this spell for its overload cost. If you do, change its text by replacing all instances of "target" with "each".)

Ahem, so first things first - your lack of deck description makes things really difficult for me, or anyone to really give meaningful feedback as I along with you apparently don't know what you're trying to do with this deck. A good start however for writing up a good deck description would be Epochalyptik's Do you want to write a Primer?.

At first glace all I can say is that 46 Creatures is alot - almost half of your deck. While the creatures you chose all provide excellent value, maybe you could cut a few to make room for some more interaction - which your deck lacks severely. Having a few good removal options in form of:

Could buy you time, especially if your opponents keep removing your commander - which in my opinion is the deck's greatest strength and weakness. Since you're in blue, it never hurts to spec into some counter magic:

You can at least have some say when your opponents target your board when you start to get out of control as you cast more and more things. I remember seeing an interesting post about Chulane on the cEDH subreddit, this particular post detailed a bunch of combos - i'll leave the post here but here's just a sample:

There's plenty there on the sub-reddit to help you go down the proverbial rabbit hole, so I encourage you to check it out and see what combo(s) take your interest. Again I want to emphasize this - please make a proper deck description - it not only helps you but everyone who visits your page. Good luck in your deck building. Also, +1 - for a new deck.

I was thinking of building a gwyn deck as well. Here are some cards I think could be cool to run in this deck. Obviously a lot of options.

equipment

enchantments

removal

creatures

combo

Required are Syr Gwyn, Hero of Ashvale and Surestrike Trident . Then you can just go down the line of creatures attaching all of your power increasing equipment and tapping them for tons of damage. If you have Leonin Shikari and Brave the Sands out, then you can all out attack and then do the tapping out on the endstep before your turn. If you don't have Surestrike Trident but instead have Heartseeker then you can just kill a creature for each one you control.

Hey, consider cutting some redundancy for more stax?

Cards to consider cutting:

From a competitive standpoint I think mana rocks and stax cards are better artifacts to pump Akiri then lots of equipment.

@Dragaan - haha! that's okay, try to make decks here and playtest them. EDH is a fun way to challenge your friends. I have considered Heartwood Storyteller before, but giving opponents ammo by having them draw is a disadvantage for a semi-aggro deck like this. Also I had Grizzled Leotau in this deck before, but i have replaced it with more tribal centric creatures like Ironroot Warlord . I might replace either Mastermind's Acquisition or Diabolic Tutor with Eladamri's Call , but my problem with revealing the searched card/s is that my opponents can prepare when i cast it, unlike the other 2 tutors i have.. I might playtest it first. Nameless Inversion is underwhelming for an instant targeted removal and Winds of Abandon is a desperation removal, plus its overload cost is worse than my mass removals. The only thing going for it is that it's an instant. Anyway, thanks for the suggestions!

Oh, yea one more I forgot to mention, sorry. Winds of Abandon is a card I've been impressed with. Would it not be worth including? Or is the mass ramp too much...

@MrJelly

I see Winds of Abandon as an upgrade over Single Combat.

  • It doesn't leave any opposing creature behind.
  • It doesn't remove any of my creatures.
  • It has the option of being a single target killspell.

I'm holding onto Wrath of God as a cut for another sweeper like Cleansing Nova.

I noticed in the change log you are planning on switching Single Combat for Winds of Abandon , what's your logic?

Personally, I think instead of Switching out Single Combat , switch out Wrath of God instead. Single Combat is one of the best boardwipes for the Voltron Strategy, while Wrath of God is cheaper, it doesn't synergise with the deck as well as Single Combat .
