    I would have some counterspells for mass removal... Wink

    As I mentioned, the general doesn't need to have hexproof. Bant would work as these colors include most creatures with hexproof, shroud and indestructible. However, I would prefer a 2 color deck to avoid too much color fixing in the 99.

    I am curious to hear about players which have experience using a similar deck with a certain degree of success...

    Hi all,

    I'd like your suggestions or decklinks for a deck featuring creatures with the hexproof ability, in order to better resist against targeted removal. I guess blue-green is an obvious direction to take, however I don't have any general in mind that could work nicely with this approach. I am at the earliest stage of construction so I don't have anything worked out yet, other than this main idea.

    The general doesn't need to have hexproof, FYI.

    Let me know if you can shed some ideas on the matter. I play casual games, no infinite combos, against good decks but nothing too competitive.

    Thanks a lot!

    OK, that's what I thought. With a Urza, Lord High Artificer, I guess it then truly becomes free.

    Otherwise, I guess then that Thoughtcast gets to cost one 1 blue if you keep puting the drawn cards, namely artifacts for 0 cost into play, then keep the engine going until you combo off.

    I agree that the blue mana is always needed (my bad, posted this in a rush)... sorry!

    As for the token, I meant that it helps pay for subsequent recasting of Thoughtcast.

    I see many oathbreaker decks with these 2 cards, and I don't understand how Thoughtcast somehow gets cast for free once you have enough artifacts in play, with Saheeli, Sublime Artificer on the battlefield? People say that it circumvents the tax, but since only 1 tokens etb after each cast, doesn't that lower the cost by only one mana instead of 2?

    If it were up to me, I would have said:
    Commander seeks to increase game-to-game variability by being a 100-card singleton format. Cards that lead to repetitive game play, such as tutors, are not in the spirit of the format.
    2-card combos that win the game on the spot are also not highly desirable, as it gives the sensation of winning out of nowhere. As such, easy to assemble combos are not in the spirit of the format.
    Something similar about stax and MLD
    etc.
    etc.
    With these guidelines in mind, we suggest that prior to every game of commander with players you do not know, you ask if their decks run: Tutors, combos, stax, mld. This is suggested to be part of the social guidelines to make sure that commander games are fun and social experiences.

    I completely agree with you. I somehow think that they don't want to rock the boat too hard by mentioning this (because sooo many people uses tutors, for example). I was expecting more from this announcement... any idea when the next "update" will be made?

    Original concept for sure!

    You could also try that land that makes you win if you control 10 different gates. Just a suggestion.

    A friend and I opened a box last week, and got one FOIL copy + 1 regular copy in the same box... JACKPOT!!!! Woot!

    Just curious, should we hold on to both copies, or sell them? My feeling is that the price should not go down anytime soon... do you agree?

    I would say 5 loyalty would be plausible, based on the CMC and the ultimate of 8.

    This makes me want to build an Empress Galina EDH deck that everyone will hate.
    Glad I'm not playing in your playgroup! lol

    Let the man play what he wants. Build a clone deck and you'll usually be able to do what he does but more efficiently and it's flattering rather than you just being a jerk to someone.
    The guy in question is a good friend with a great attitude (albeit somewhat stubborn at times), so he won't really mind. I just need to send a msg to demonstrate that his strategy can easily come to an abrupt end if his flyers can no longer dominate the sky.

    I know I could use control/removal, this is not the advise I am looking for.

    I have made some decks which can turn things around, the most interesting being thraximundar with (threaten type effects + sac outlets. I also have Zurgo Helmsmasher which really works well (nothing survives for long), and I just created another deck to punch face with Xenagos, God of Revels, the latter still in works but showing potential.

    I like the suggestions about whiptongue hydra and sandwurm convergence, although the latter costs an arm and a leg, might come into play too late to be of real use.

    Keep the ideas coming!

    I would rather have the white version, but hey, can't really complain.
