Commander / EDH

The Trinisphere Episode 1 Chance Encounter Commander: Mikaeus, the Lunarch

During the first episode of The Trinisphere, during the "Chance Encounter" segment, we randomly selected Mikaeus, the Lunarch. We each built the deck in our own unique way to showcase the diversity of the three psychographic profiles.

Goal

Mikaeus, the Lunarch is a XW commander that puts +1/+1 counters on each other creature you control. This lends itself to a go-wide strategy of generating a lot of tokens. Unfortunately, this strategy is fairly commonplace, and does not allow for a significant amount of brewing. With a token heavy strategy you are trading resilience to spot removal for vulnerability to board-wipes.

Design

Mono-white doesn't allow much room for creativity, so we're going to limit the number of sub-themes in the deck. The main themes of the deck are:

  • Ramp & Draw - combined due to few efficient outlets
  • Anthem effects - increasing power/toughness and adding +1/+1 counters
  • Counter Consumers - cards that can utilize +1/+1 counters in a meaningful way
  • Token generation - providing bodies to place counters on
  • Removal - to deal with threats that can't be deal with by creature swarms
  • Utility - one-off cards to deal with particular threats

Gameplay

Hopefully this deck displays some of the strategies behind Timmy deck-building, even if the subject matter is bland and fairly one-dimensional.
