Daxos of Meletis


  • Color: Blue, White
  • Type: Legendary Creature - Human, Soldier

Daxos of Meletis can’t be blocked by creatures with power 3 or greater.

Whenever Daxos of Meletis deals combat damage to a player, exile the top card of that player’s library. You gain life equal to that card’s converted mana cost. Until end of turn, you may cast that card and you may spend mana as though it were mana of any color to cast it.

    Wow… This is pretty good…

  • YouGotFranked

    damn, if only the clause that says “you may spend mana as though it were mana of any color to cast it.” worked in EDH. Will still probably see play

    • Yanu

      But this clause should work. It says “as though”, so it doesnt add mana of that color or change its color, you just can pay W for R or whatever.

    Bant Pants is back in the game, gentlemen.

      Geist still will be better, but he’s a more balanced replacement.

      • Zombie

        Because Geist being cycled out of Standard is a totally relevant power comparison.

        I’ve noticed people have a bad habit of comparing stuff to previous sets. Study the new environment, not how it compares to the old one.

        • Kevan Kramer

          This is a reasonable comparison because both of them fit the same slot in that deck. Geist was insane cause of hexproof.

  • William S. Miller

    alright this could be interesting. . .

    This card is amazing, had the chance of getting one is a sealed theros pre-release event. Once on the battlefield I gave it “Aqueous form”, made it impossible to block and when it attacks it also gave me scry 1. So I was able exile or use his top card and gain it’s mana cost in life for free, damage the opponent and look at my own top card and put it at the bottom if it didn’t please me. If I had received a few aura’s that gave hexproof it would have been pretty unstoppable.
