I mean, if we are just talking about Uril, the Miststalker, he has his own baked in problems.

Having hexproof to start is great but auras in general are terrible. One Wrath of God and you're down a ton of cards and now you have to cast a 7 cost creature without haste. You might as well make the argument that you shouldn't have a voltron commander without built in indestructible.

I think, you are better off with whatever voltron commander fits your playgroup/playstyle. You don't need hexproof to start, but yes it would be helpful. There are plenty of commanders such as Feather, the Redeemed, Skullbriar, the Walking Grave and Rograkh, Son of Rohgahh that are plenty powerful without the built-in hexproof due to either there cheap cost, powerful abilities, built-in card advantage, keyword soup, et cetera.

Xianling69, there's

Counterspells, redirects, Lightning Greaves, Swiftfoot Boots, any of the swords of x and y, Hammer of Nazahn, Gift of Doom, Kaya's Ghostform, any number of white cantrips, etc...

I have a partner voltron. I use Akiri, Line-Slinger and Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker.

Jeskai works a lot better than boros. I have the godo/helm combo and feast/famine sword with Aggravated Assault combo in case I get stuck. Blue counter magic and draw is a life saver.

Having partners in voltron is invaluable. Akiri is the go to and when she gets too expensive to recast or I want flying, I switch to ishai. They can also both be out and kill two people at once, but I prefer to be more conservative.

I like phyrexian etchings but the triple black makes it a bit difficult to cast, exponentially so with Blood Moon out.

I'm going to have to get the stylus. Stepter has no mana cost either but the tucking helps to get around the possibility of indestructible. I think I'll swap it in and take out Telim'Tor's Edict. I lose a one time cantrip for a repeatable effect.

Thanks for the suggestions.

You could run the new Heliod. All you need to find is walking ballista.

I'm a fan of red mld. Apocalypse and Jokulhaups being my favorite of the bunch.

Edit: Typo fix

Well my favorite mtg color is black by far and my favorite strategy are non-blue control that bleeds the table dry. Essentially a ton of Painful Quandary effects.

Though if I win, I'd prefer something not black and a strategy I don't use. I'm thinking Grual. I steer away from creature heavy decks, go-wide aggro, chaos, and landfall / land strategies.
