I was able to track down a Thassa in my nearby vicinity. What this all means is I'm making another update, its been so long I know.
Deepfathom Skulker -> Whir of Invention: An overcosted card to a more flexible card. Skulker wasn't terrible, but suffered from the fact that it costed so much to bring out. At worst, Whir can find an ersatz replacement for the Skulker in Bident of Thassa for only 7.
Raven Guild Master -> Thassa, God of the Sea: The Guild Master has always had the problem of not really doing anything other then drawing us ire. Thassa gives us another source of unblockability, and provides a large-ish beater, something which this deck is somewhat lacking in.
I've been happy on how this deck has been playing currently, and I'm probably going to focus more on refining the main post at this point. In addition, I want to start giving recaps for my games. If you have any suggestions on updating the main deck be sure to give me a recommendation, I always appreciate them.

Apr 24, 2018Another Quick Update:Posted in: Multiplayer Commander Decklists
I got a few more 1v1 games with this deck in, and boy does it feel nice there. I had some problems organizing larger game with the Pre-Release going on, and whilst not my preferred way to play, it does have some definite game to it in 1v1. I say, nothing feels better then attacking with 2 unblockable creatures drawing 6 and discarding 2.
Anyways, I've also decided to make one more change.
Jhessian Thief->Gilded Drake: While not inherently bad, Thief makes us need to cast anything other than creatures on the second main phase. I figured the easiest way to circumvent it is to get rid of it, and the Drake is always a good card. It often can't block us, and allows us to have slight more late game reach.
In other news:
I'm needing to find a Thassa, God of the Sea, and everywhere in my local area seems to be sold out, sigh. This next cut will probably Raven Guild Master as we're not a mill deck.
Apr 22, 2018Posted in: Multiplayer Commander DecklistsQuote from GrimoireDark »Quote from ChaosNomad »I would cut Knight of Dusk. Not many people will block it when you're mana is open, and it's really not a big enough creature to justify it in deck. I would replace it most likely with Final Parting. It gives you another way to bin Haakon, Stromgald Scourge. Otherwise, I would try to lower the overall CMC as your curve is really predicated on getting to 5 Mana.
Hmmm, I can understand what you mean with Knight of Dusk. So maybe adding some other lower costing knights to help lower the cmc curve? Like Knight of Grace and Knight of Malice just to name a few.
What would you suggest?
Actually, I just got another look at your deck, and there's two more important things your missing. Unconditional card draw and spot removal. Currently, you have no way at all to interact with Artifacts or Enchantments other than Vona, Butcher of Magan. Replace the Knight of Dusk with an Anguished Unmaking. Probably drop Darksteel Ingot for Phyrexian Arena. Finally, replace Kabira Crossroads as you don't have any need for the life, and a mono-coloured land that enters tapped. I would personally choose Unclaimed Territory, and probably drop something else for a Strip Mine like effect. Nothing's worse than facing a Itlimoc, Cradle of the Sun and watching your opponent tap for a bunch while you can't do anything. I would most likely choose Dust Bowl for this effect as it directly synergizes with your deck and general.

Apr 22, 2018I thinking about trading mine off. As Cyberium_Neo stated, it doesn't accelerate well, and the Amber doesn't fix well. The only notable exception I can think of is in Captain Sisay. She can tutor for it, so it's relatively low investment for what it is. Cheap One mana Legends will also want it, most notably Rhys the Redeemed or Norin the Wary. Granted, I wouldn't really want it in too many other decks.Posted in: Commander (EDH)
Apr 19, 2018Niambi, Faithful Healer could play a nice U/W Control deck with Teferi, Timebender. The Planeswalker deck Teferi is nowhere near as unplayable as some people make him out to be. Just remember to include Oath of Teferi and The Chain Veil.Posted in: Commander (EDH)

It will never go away as long as the MTG story is basicly a saturday morning cartoon.
True the worst I think is when Urza made anime mecha suits and gathered the infinity stones...I mean pieces of the legacy weapon to fight the cyborgs horrors of phyrexia.
And you could but more originality into it, the Mana Rangers/Powerstone Rangers, The Fantastic Four-Drops, Captain Gideon and the Walkers, Guardians of the multiverse, Multiverse's Finest, ect
Hey if they ever get Weatherlight fully up to snuff again, we can call them the Guardians of the Multiverse.

Apr 18, 2018Posted in: Multiplayer Commander DecklistsQuote from Muffinz »I also considered Warkite Marauder, but it doesn't really do anything for us.
Also, if you want to get the most out of coastal piracy effects, I suggest adding a few cheap flyers to your list. In particular, I would suggest Siren Stormtamer, as it protects Tetsuko, and Cloud of Faeries, as it is free and combos nicely with ninjas.
Oh, I really like Siren Stormtamer. I'm going to need to throw it in here somewhere. Cloud of Faeries, I'm a little more hesitant on as I'm not sure if a free 1/1 flier is really worth it. Granted, it's definitely something for me to keep in mind as I restructure the deck.
Library of Leng isn't something that I want as I don't find myself often needing the cards I'm discarding, and I would often have to cut something more valuable.
In other news,
I've been messing with the deck, and I've come to the conclusion that I might need at least another end game threat. I have an issue of closing out games. I was looking at one of the Eldrazi Titans. I would like someone else's opinion on this. Does anyone out there in the empty void of the internet have any thoughts?
Apr 16, 2018Posted in: Magic StorylineQuote from Lumovanis »I do like Gideon's new approach to things. I'm actually beginning to believe we'll see a w/b Gideon in the future at this rate. Of course I'm sure something angelic and "goodly" will set him back on the boyscout's path at some point, unfortunately. I get the feeling we may see Liliana's involvement in the gatewatch come to an end soon. Vraska was certainly getting set up to take her place it felt like.
Well, I know what I'll be thankful for this Christmas.
Seriously though, as pointed out by AUTUMNTWILIGHT Liliana never clicked with the Gatewatch. She's really too self-motivated to be a member of any group long-term. I'm not really sure how long she'll even be with Bolas for. Actually scratch that, I know exactly how long she's going to be with him. As long as it takes to find a work around for her current contract.
Apr 16, 2018Posted in: The Rumor MillQuote from Havrekjex »
I think that by "special occasions" they actually mean "whenever we need an otherwise bad set to sell better", which is definitely not Dominaria.Quote from saneatali »They went too far with the masterpieces by putting them into every set, so they pulled back and decided to save them for special occasions. Here we are, special occasion central. Magic's home plane on its 25th anniversary.
That plan worked well...
Honestly, that's the feeling I'm getting from the entire thing. Dominaria has so much hype being built around it, that really, adding Masterpieces wouldn't do much. That being said, I'm happy to see such a positive feedback for the home plane, and that they didn't stick it with the theme of Post-Apocalyptic Wasteland that I thought they would. At this rate, I'm hoping it overtakes some of the more popular planes in popularity, so we don't have to 11 years to, properly, see it again.
Apr 16, 2018So, I just got around to reading the most recent story, and my take away from it was, that Liliana's character development is constantly hamstrung by the fact Wizards seems intent that she has to be the mono-black representative of the Gatewatch. Granted, I'm enjoying Gideon's quasi-existential crisis going on. Him realizing that he may not be powerful enough to accomplish his goals is actually really good way to take the character.Posted in: Magic Storyline
Also, I'm going to miss the Dominaria plane-bound characters when we leave. Raff is such a lovable brat.
Apr 15, 2018ChaosNomad posted a message on Grenzo, Dungeon Warden - The Slot Machine of ValueHey, loving the Grenzo deck. I’m curious is there a reason you’re not running Canal Dredger? He’s legal in Commander, it’s just his draft exclusive text does nothing. You also get style points for running a draft based card.Posted in: Multiplayer Commander Decklists
Apr 15, 2018So I was thinking, how about Frenzied Fugue? We run an easily fetchable Sac Outlet in Lunarch Mantle.Posted in: Commander (EDH)
Serra's Sanctum is a must.
Greater Auramancy seems like a pretty sweet buff to our enchantments.
Fountain Watch is always another way to protect our Auras.
Also, consider Monastery Mentor. We cast an awful lot of non-creatures.
Finally, Karn, Scion of Urza is another draw engine that synergize with the equipment build.

Feb 4, 2014Either Blightspeaker or Wheel of Fortune.Posted in: Announcements
For Blightspeaker, I like the art, creature typing, the flavour text and the abilities present on the card. Everything is just so right, and is probably favourite creature. It also probably helps that my two favourite tribes are Rebels and Clerics.
Wheel of Fortune is a little different. It is one of the first cards I remember having, and is one of the few that I still have my original copy of. Every time I play my copy, currently in my Nin, the Pain Artist commander deck, I feel taken back to my early days of playing MTG with friends during School at Lunch.
