Winds of Abandon

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".)

ChaosJester on Shuffle and Lose!

Thanks a bunch for your upvote plus great suggestion, Grind ! I have to playtest this commander. Do you have any experiences with Kraum? I play the Piper because of the white shuffle cards in my Maybeboard - especially Winds of Abandon , Cataclysm and Sharuum are amazingly powerful in this deck. Sharuum and Phyrexian Metamorph go infinite by sacrificing each other and trigger Bitter Ordeals Gravestorm effect infinite times, which is crazy as hell. So, the piper is just a flavorful flexible color fixer.

Raining Cats and Dogs Nice work bdodds, I think you have selected a handful of great cards but I'd think you could benefit from an earlier CatDog play and cheaper creatures to really start raining cats and dogs. Even without Aluren, every creature coming in with an extra token produces insane value. Especially considering your general's ability.

Below, I would like to outline 4 core concepts and considerations. Ramp, Creatures, Protection, Draw.

Ramp - Prioritizing cards that help you play Rin & Seri turn 3! Nature's Lore Rampant Growth Three Visits Boros Signet Selesnya Signet Gruul Signet Talisman of Conviction Talisman of Unity Talisman of Impulse Fellwar Stone This should be easy to replace the ramp packaging you already have. Look to cut cards like Explosive Vegetation, Chromatic Lantern, Obelisk of Naya, etc.

Creatures - Prioritizing 3CMC or less and upping your creature count to closer to 30! Think about adding creatures that fullfill multiple roles and allow you to run less other stuff. Qasali Pridemage is a great example cause it can pump a swinger +1/+1 as well as remove a pesky enchant or artifact.

Cheap Utility Kitties- Adorned Pouncer Brimaz, King of Oreskos Bronzehide Lion Initiate's Companion King of the Pride Leonin Relic-Warder Oreskos Explorer Pride Sovereign Qasali Ambusher I like the returners you have for multiple cast triggers too! Can get stupid with Aluren... Whitemane Lion Temur Sabertooth Fleetfoot Panther ? Snow Hound

Cheap Utility Doggos- Abzan Beastmaster Ainok Guide Bolt Hound Resolute Watchdog Selfless Savior

Some real cheap beefers could be nice considering they make a token, but could also see not making the cut- Wild Nacatl Loam Lion Leonin Vanguard Isamaru, Hound of Konda Sacred Cat

Protection/Return - Build a huge board and keep it protected! Unbreakable Formation Rootborn Defenses Heroic Intervention Teferi's Protection Asceticism Marshal's Anthem Kindred Boon Akroma's Will Flawless Maneuver

Draw(ish) - The cheaper the cards in hand the more you gonna empty and wanna draw! Skullclamp Colossal Majesty Elemental Bond Beast Whisperer Fecundity Garruk's Uprising Descendants' Path Realmwalker Hunter's Insight Snake Umbra Lifecrafter's Bestiary Mentor of the Meek Guardian Project Return of the Wildspeaker Shamanic Revelation Slate of Ancestry Collective Unconscious Camaraderie

General good cards for Cat/Dog: Maskwood Nexus Mirror Entity Crib Swap Felidar Retreat Basilisk Collar Thousand-Year Elixir Rings of Brighthearth Seht's Tiger Shields of Velis Vel Naya Charm Kindred Summons Volatile Claws Beastmaster Ascension Titanic Ultimatum Hour of Reckoning Triumph of the Hordes Finale of Devastation Idyllic Tutor Winds of Abandon Lightning Greaves (secret lair dog art!) Coat of Arms Swiftfoot Boots Impact Tremors Rhythm of the Wild Aura Shards Shared Animosity Mirari's Wake Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip Any Cheap Changelings really...

White does have the best mass removal.

Wrath of God, Day of Judgment, Cleansing Meditation, Fumigate, Planar Cleansing, Austere Command, Cleansing Nova, Settle the Wreckage, Winds of Abandon.

Is Blasphemous Act a good board wipe? Absolutely. But white consistently gets good board wipe compared to the one or two good creature board wipe that red has (which are also all damage based).

Oh, also, Winds of Abandon is a good one if you really want to run another. Especially if you're running stuff like Acidic Soil. Nothing wrong with that if you feel like you'd do better with another boardwipe. Everything is meta dependent.

Neotrup on Alternate casting costs without paying …

No, when you cast a spell without paying it's mana cost, you cannot choose to pay an alternate cost. Casting Winds of Abandon using Mizzix's Mastery will not be overloaded, you will have to choose a target and cannot exile all creatures you don't control.

When you cast a spell without paying it's mana cost, you can pay additional costs though. So you could pay the kicker on Bloodchief's Thirst to destroy any creature. You would need to actually pay the cost, it wouldn't be included in the "without paying it's mana cost." If there is a mandatory additional cost (such as Village Rites), you would be required to pay it.

From the Gatherer entry for Mizzix's Mastery: 11/4/2015 If you cast a spell "without paying its mana cost," you can’t pay any alternative costs. You can, however, pay additional costs, such as kicker costs. If the card has any mandatory additional costs, you must pay those.

SirGrodus on Alternate casting costs without paying …

The question is a bit poorly phrased but this is what I'm referring to. Can I cast an overloaded Winds of Abandon without paying its mana cost after exiling it with Mizzix's Mastery?

Heliogabale on First attempt BW

I am only saying this because you mentioned this is your first Commander deck: going down the infinite combo route and playing this many tutors will result in very similar games for you. If consistency is your focus that can be a good thing, but if it is your only deck it can get repetitive fast.

I would lose some single effect cards like Hymn to Tourach or Lapse of Certainty and select cards with recurring effects like Court of Ambition and Liliana's Caress.

Fate Unraveler is a walking Underwold Dreams. Rackling is a living version of The Rack.

In most cases, Memory Jar makes all your opponents draw 7 and discard 7 cards when you trigger it. That can be a win for you with the right setup.. I second Bloodchief Ascension as mentioned above, with or without Mindcrank.

Consider adding either Teferi's Protection or Flawless Maneuver. You may want to Invest some space for spot removal like Vindicate and Anguished Unmaking or Despark. As for mass removal, you may find Winds of Abandon more satisfying than Fumigate if you have a board.

Try Children of Korlis with Necropotence and your Commander or Enduring Renewal.You can add recursion that fits your mechanic with Luminous Broodmoth.

Finally, I think you would like Sangromancer. I do.

Hope you find something useful, welcome to the Commander format!
