Hi, I love MTG and have a special place in my heart for Commander. I enjoy the versatility this format promotes (for the most part) and the many creative deck ideas that come forth because of it. Since its inception in 2012, I have literally seen hundreds of different commanders being used in thousands of different winning combinations. I have no doubt I will continue to enjoy this format until the day I leave this plane of existence. I hope to share that enthusiasm with you lot. Have fun brewing and playing; see you on the battlefield!

Regards,

Cool! I've got a Daxos deck myself (https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/stopping-power-primer/) and it's interesting to see the different choices we both made. I like the integration of auras and curses in your version. I decided to skip those in mine (mostly) and focus more on stax-elements.

I play-tested your deck a few times just now, to see how it runs. I think it could benefit from adding a few more ramp options and maybe two more lands; because I had trouble taking meaningful actions in all cases until turn four. Not sure if this would be an issue in your meta, but it definitely would be in mine :) Anyway, those are my thoughts. Feel free to check out my Daxos version. I'm interested in your comments.

Looks like an interesting deck! Ulvenwald Tracker might be interesting to consider, as he can repeat the kind of removal you're into (through the 'Fight' mechanic). Granted, he's a bit of a weakling and thus prone to removal at some point, but then again, he's not that expensive to use so might be worth the gamble to include.

Also, since you're often dependent on token armies, it would be nice to include a (one-time) boost or two for them, to be used as a finisher. Since your deck seems to be on a restricted budget, I would recommend options like Strength of the Tajuru, Overrun or Overwhelming Stampede.

Have fun with this brew and completing the primer!

I hate the injection of 40K into the MTG universe, but I like what you've done with this deck :) Cathars' Crusade comes to mind for more powerful attacks (and defenses). For the token theme, Bitterblossom also seems to fit rather neatly.

I drew 10 hands from this deck to confirm a suspicion I had about the deck, that turned out to be correct. With 7 of the starting hands that I drew (and the follow-up five cards), I couldn't do anything except summon Mayael and then I had to wait until enough turns had passed to use her ability. Not sure if this is what you intended, but I would prefer a bit more speed. My conclusion: your deck needs more mana-fixing. Therefore, I'd recommend cards like Chromatic Lantern, Fellwar Stone, Dryad of the Ilysian Grove or Prismatic Omen. Maybe add Sylvan Caryatid to replace Fyndhorn Elves. Other than this, I think the deck looks just fine.

I love how creative you've been in terms of the cards you've added. So many that would be rather weak without the proliferate mechanic and almost no player that has recently started playing knows about. +1 for that alone!

Would Contagion Clasp also fit, in the role of providing more proliferation redundancy? I'd say cards like Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider and Doubling Season would be perfect in here, but you probably didn't include these for budget reasons.

Gold themed? Then you have to include King Macar, the Gold-Cursed! :):) Kidding aside, this looks like a lot of fun to play. I can't imagine it being a very fast deck though, considering its mana requirements. Maybe add some more mana fixing options like Chromatic Lantern or Prismatic Omen? Also, can't help but notice that most of the card-advantage options you've included for extra draw require (lots of) mana to draw. Maybe think about adding some options that aren't as expensive to use (Rhystic Study?).

Nice deck! Have you considered Sheoldred, the Apocalypse? Seems tailor-made for a deck that forces lots of draw. Geth's Grimoire can also be very beneficial for you, to profit from opposing discards even more. Same goes for Tinybones, Trinket Thief. I would also really recommend Torment of Hailfire as it's absolutely devastating in here on multiple levels.

To make room for these changes I would recommend top remove K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth, Murderous Rider, Profane Command and Worst Fears.
