Recently, I've been disassembling a few decks to make room for a more consistent competitive deck. Because I'm a bit limited to my budget (no mox diamond, grim monolith, etc) but do have some of the bare bones for a competitive shell at least. With that being said, I was looking through commander choices that may not rely so heavily on these cards. With all of the new reprints in Double Masters and new exciting cards, I knew there was something out there that was being overlooked. Que the puff-puff on the wacky-tabacky and I thought of a great idea that I've never seen tried.
An old geezer summoning an artifact army to do his bidding and combo the heck off.
The game winning combo is Isochron Sceptre or Lithoform Engine mixed with good ol' reliable Dramatic Reversal. Now here's where it gets fun and interesting *eyebrows raised*. As long as you're net positive once you start the Dramatic Reversal loop, you win, and here's how. Create a billion colorless with combo, with Daggson untapped, search out Myr Turbineand tap it to create an Artifact Myr which you can then sac to Daggson to tutor up more mana rocks to continue going net positive. With Turbine in play, you get any amount of non-creature artifacts with Daggson including Aetherflux Reservoir which triggers on the Dramatic Reversal casts. You can also loop Spine of Ish Sah to destroy all your opponents permanents first for good measure too!
You could also opt to put in a backup line of Rings of Brighthearth and Bassalt or Grim Monolith and achieve the same results with more ease as tutoring up artifacts are way easier than finding blue instants to hand (although I'd recommend running all of them)
Do to COVID and school work, I haven't played much and just been brewing but I've already am assembling the pieces of this as I really do believe this could be like a 9 - 9.5 on competitive tier with the new artifact supports. I can post a deck list of what I ended up on for my 99 if there's interest but a lot of it is going to be your typical blue shell with a few Stax pieces thrown in for good measure like Winter Orb and Torpor Orb.
What do you folks think of this idea? I know from my research in Cedh that Daggson was considered Competitive when Paradox Engine was still available but wasn't top tier, and got gut-busted from the banning. I think people just let him fade away, but I think he's still full of unrealized potential!! Could this be something you see yourself playing? Would it be consistently be able to answer the Cedh metagame?
