I like Mardu. I like Enchantments that are in Mardu colors. This thing is a Enchantment, token, pillowforty thing. I dunno. I played it once and it was a lot of fun. I think I need more removal. I may find a spot for Knight-Captain of Eos. This deck just wants to sit back and build up some tokens. Vicious Shadows and Shared Animosity plus Iroas will usually take someone out.

I woke up this morning realizing I forgo two wincon cards. Vicious Shadows and Shared Animosity

-Cleansing Meditation - Cute but that's about it
- 1 land - I can deal with 38
-Doomwake Giant or Blightcaster -Doomwake costs more and only does -1/-1. Blightcaster isn't an enchantment but does -2/-2 and is cheaper to cast.
-Rest in Peace or Demonic Tutor -haven't decided yet. RiP will clear my graveyard and stop Vicious Shadows. Demonic is just a tutor and I'm meh on tutors

+Vicious Shadows -wincon
+Shared Animosity -wincon
+Commander's Authority -more soldiers
+Knight-Captain of Eos -I love this guy. Even if he only gets two fogs, he's still good in my book.


at some point I'll trade for a Greater Auramancy. Can't believe its up to $20!

Infernal Genesis and Tombstone Stairwell should probably find their way in here.

Is there a reason why Crackling Doom and Austere Command are absent? I get that you want to stay super proactive here, but there are a choice few ways to manage the board that you can use to stop a couple of opponents from going off too quickly.

EDIT: Of the edits you've put about, I'd go with Rest in Peace and Blightcaster. Doomwake is way too sweet imo- and aside from RiP blowing back on you, shutting off everyone's recursion has a habit of making EDH drag; and outright stopping a Teneb or Karador player from playing the game is unnecessary.

I have a whole stack of answers I pulled out for this deck including those two. I'm not sure where I'll cut yet. I don't like to stock up on one use answers without ways of finding them when needed or if the deck warrants filling it with them (Sunforger deck etc)

I'll play it a few times and see where some can fit. I have a sweet foil Austere Command that I'd put in.



I agree with those two and that's where I'm leaning.

Got a couple games in with this deck. Won both of them but was heavily reliant on Shared Animosity or Vicious Shadows and Assemble the Legion. I think I need more token producers and maybe one more wincon.

:3 Grave Titan and Savage Beating (the mostly aptly named card in MtG)? I think I may have hurred and durred by not asking about Grave Titan sooner, since your plan seems to involve Purphoros. Would definitely rather play GT over Silent Sentinel (though that does push you more towards Warstorm Surge silliness.)

Funny question, do you feel that the deck has enough ramp? I get that the monarch angle fixes some amount of lack of card draw, but since the list is ridiculously proactive, do 4 rocks, a Robot, and a Fetchland grabbing Titan really cut it?

also Land Tax. I haven't had a problem with mana yet but only had two games so far. This is not a quick deck and takes a few turns to really get going. I thought about dropping in Caged Sun. I have enough white sources that I can get some decent use out of it.

Only saw Purphy once and he didn't deal too much damage before Share Animosity did it's thing and finished off the last two players. That being said, I can see him being another wincon.

Grave Titan is always a welcome sight. I also like Twilight Drover. I'll look swapping in those two somewhere.

I'm going to drop Tombstone Stairwell. I don't have enough creatures to get enough value out of it.
