Retiring my first EDH Deck. It was how I got into playing EDH and it was a fun deck to play and learn the nuances of Magic Rules. It went through a bunch of changes from full aggro tokens, clone, infinite turns to its final version (Aggro/Shenanigans).
Here’s the final deck list!

The first few times I saw this deck in action it feels too slow but after looking through the cards and possible ways to play it I realized that it just needs to be tweaked more then the other Commander Decks.
Daxos as a Commander is a solid 2/2 for his WBC casting cost but its his ability to bring more creatures to the board that makes him shine. My plan is to start converting it to a constellation deck as the tokens Daxos brings would trigger off of them.
Same with the previous deck it has most of the lands you need to build a nice base around and you’ll just need to put in a few more into those special lands e.g Godless Shrine.
I took out the alternate general as it doesn’t fit in the flavor/strategy anymore and loaded up with more Enchantments that remove or hinder my opponents more. I’m debating on adding Whip of Erebos as I don’t like the idea of losing a card to exile in EDH. Rule of Law didn’t make the cut as it would be counter intuitive. Will write more about how it performs once I play it against other people and it will be updated constantly for the next few months (along with Sen Triplets) as I slowly get my hands on cards I want to add.

This deck is built for a really aggressive player. With a casting cost of WRCC you can potentially put Kalemne into play by 2 Turn and Swinging for Damage by Turn 3. (A God Hand opening would involve either a Plains or Mountain/Sol Ring/Mana Vault as that will allow you to swing in by Turn 2).
After using the deck during Arma-Game-Don which had me attacking the first place person right from the get go (forget diplomacy I was aiming not to be last place). It was apparent that it suffers from not enough draw which coupled by the high casting cost cards in my hand kept me from being able to keep up the pressure as well as defend myself.
Straight out of the box its good but as with everything you can make it better with the addition of new cards particularly ones that fit your play style. With that said here’s an updated list with cards I’ve added from my own stuff and the reasoning behind it.
The only card I removed was the Blasted Landscape its removed because that slot can be used by something better e.g Slayers Stronghold, Sacred Foundry, etc. etc. if the trend continues with the other decks expect to be only looking for a few utility lands as these decks come with it.
I try to keep a theme within a deck (that’s fancy talk for I don’t have the right cards at the moment) so for the most part I stuck with Soldiers, Giants, and Angels. Kalemne’s Captain was removed due to the addition of Equipment and Enchantments to help make Kalemne a potential one shot. Some utility creatures were added and can potentially combo with Sun Titan.
With it being EDH I just added a board wipe if things go awry. Enchantments added were those that make a creature better by giving them +/+ but also some evasion.
Mana Rocks and Filters were added. Would probably call in a favor to get the Swords as I never had the opportunity to use them yet. Thought Vessel is currently one of my favorite cards as its a Mana Rock AND Reliquary Tower in one.
The updated list is here! Unfortunately their database does not have the new Commander stuff in their database yet so I’ll have to update that down the road.
