Goblin Sharpshooter would be sweet, but it isn't modern legal.
I feel like Blistercoil Weird and Ashmouth Hound are pretty agressive cards for what you are trying do do. I understand you reasons for inclusion, but they would probably be better as cards like Volcanic Fallout or Izzet Charm.

clayperce,Thanks for the suggestions! I'm definitely considering Clip Wings as a sideboard piece for use against BG Delirium or RG Marvel decks. As for the planeswalkers, I never intended for them to be protected by creatures so much. I felt Liliana, the Last Hope and Chandra, Torch of Defiance did a fairly good job protecting themselves if needed but, both can be game ending if left unchecked. They are basically the draw engine. I pretty much started with a delirium shell then, seen the preview for Chandra and thought, WOW so much utility. I feel the same Grim Flayer is definitely Mvp, right alongside the planeswalkers if not ahead. Thanks for the time used to playtest Steel Cannon-Pummeler (couldn't figure out how to insert the deck name to get it to highlight) vs Chandra Ima Winner I did too, very close matches (I liked the Electrostatic Pummeler+Brute Strength+Uncaged Fury Combo)!

since you are having trouble deciding i always go to this website https://edhrec.com/ when i need to find something interesting to play. not only is every possible commander on it but so are suggested cards giving even the newest players a good starting point. id also like to mention that while voltron can be expensive to build it doesnt have to be. im still working on my narset but it is a cheap voltron if a bit slow, Narset, Let Freedom Ring. a less expensive voltron can go the enchant route or just forgo swords, you lose their power but you can still do fine.

in response to your comment about the value of permanence of quips over chants...while true....just outta curiosity ... did you see the section labeled Recursion? aka...
there's another card or two like these, but less budget...
Not trying to beat a dead horse if you're going a different direction, just making sure you saw how it works....

Thanks! Against decks with counterspells, you have to take out the pans and the EEs. go for more threat density, thus the Demon of Dark Schemes, and the goblin dank dwellers. Painful Truths doesn't flashback with Goblin Dark-Dwellers though, which is a bummer. Maybe I'll put a Succumb to Temptation or two in the board instead.

Oh nice, the thing for me is that i really like playing black and i always have too many white cards, and not enough black cards for all three of my decks, i play a B/G regenerate stall sort of deck, B/B mill deck mainly using consuming aberration, and this deck i'm putting together now. So using some cheap white drops in here might as well be good.

YamiMajinEsper storm (typically headed by zur) and grixis storm (typically headed by Jeleva) both use Doomsday and are consensus Tier 1 decks. Lists are well established and should be easy to find (probably in the Tier 1 lists shown in this post).

IMO, get rid of lili (creature), rings of brighthearth, ugin, farseek, flaying tendrils (commander MP games most creatures are more than 2/2).... replace farseek with explosive veggie... secure wastes.. and 3 fogs... also if willing remove master biomancer, bred for the hunt, and cathar's crusade for more fog types

Hey ketsonkeyser, Awesome that is a great idea. I didn't think to have thought to keep life gain as a side board. Now, would i add creatures that help me gain life or more red and white control aspects like instants and enchantments to help gain life or just a lil of the both?
And right now i am fairly new too magic and i have played commander with a friend two or three times. The cards in commander are a lil too advance for me right now. and i don't understand all the and words to them. But I have learned a lot of the basics sense then and have bought a few of the older booster boxes to help me understand the basics. I wouldn't want to impose and take up your time for helping me build a commander set i don't understand all too well at the moment. At first getting into magic was a lil overwhelming for me knowing the hundreds of cards out there and the many things you can do with them lol but i am getting the hang of it so far lol

I like it... Like you I run Sisay & make them chase my permanent production (Many random players say I should run more cheap removal until they play against the deck) My play group just recently faced the wrath of trying to control the ridiculous Sisay boardstate & 2 of those players were black primary loaded with various removal & destruction...It turned into a 3 vs 1 match that I still ended up winning.
Your deck has many similarities to mine, one thing I agree on above is that you probably could benefit from more lands, my deck has a lower mana curve than yours but still totals @ about 43 lands
3) Akroma's Memorial Unless you have a special place in your heart for Akroma replace her with this
4) Gaddock Teeg

Bhaal666 Tho I agree with you that Alesha, Who Smiles at Death is an admittedly a good commander and I get exactly what you mean, she's a commander that I would totally recommend, even just bringing back Fiend Hunter and his kin Banisher Priest Fairgrounds Warden she's super powerful. But She just doesn't make me feel the fizz.

I'm glad your enjoying building it! I continue to find interactions in it that I never thought of in the first place, such as Jace, Memory Adept's ult plus a Windfall into a Whispering Madness then attack with the encoded spell... everyone draws through 75-80 cards. I actually pulled this off in a game once and no one was happy with me! It's great making other people miserable. Good luck!

slaftergames: Adaptive Automaton will be a nice (and technically tribal-friendly) replacement for Sensei Golden-Tail. I've found him to be lacking in usefulness. He never really gets to activate his ability, most of my foxes have Bushido as standard.
I'll put a couple of copies of Blighted Steppe in too, just to see how well it does.

Oh wow that's awesome i didn't even think of that. i was also thinking of adding some cheap expedition envoy or cliffside lookouts for some good 1 drops for this. the only thing that i'm concerned with now is mana placement.

Hello Quantumsandwich, Thank you very much for the feedback!. And the advice you gave me for my deck and the cards u suggested for it that would make it better. The land advice is something i really needed help with in this deck and the cards you recommended are really going to help. Boros Cluestone, Boros Keyrune, Boros Signet, Sol Ring are definitely cards i will use in this deck. I will buy all the ones you recommended and i will use them and swap them out and see which works best for my deck and then alter it on TappedoutI will remove Angelic Accord and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. You are right these cards is useless and i didn't notice until you and ketsonkeyser told me about them lol Thank you.I do have a couple Stromkirk Noble's that i use for another deck i have, That i might take out and use for my Angel Fire deck instead and take those pesky Akroan Crusaders out and replace them.I will take in the control aspects you recommended to help smooth the control and clean up the deck. I know the deck needs a lil cleaning up lol That is some really great advice you gave me!I do admit the cheap defenders have helped me stall the early game while i try to pump out as much mana as i can to cast my angels of chaos and destruction
Is there any other cards you would consider for me too swap out from my maybeboard into my deck?

Usually I post this in the description of the discussion but everybody decided to post on the decklist itself so, If you are insane enough to follow this series, I just posted the next one, Myojin of Life's Web.

how did you whip back sovereign 4 times when it exiles the creature at end of turn?
Now for suggestions outside the sweep of white and black board wipes available there is always
Your in a grave yard deck running a modest amount of creatures so Splinterfright is strong
Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger is a good reanimator target due to his on attack ability and 10/10 body
Void Maw can often act as a one shot when someone ignores or over looks its affect.

Yeah I suppose that's a better way to put it, I can't believe you were able to find affordable due lands, that takes some looking around.
On the actual deck it seems like a great deck, still alot of expensive cards but I suppose that's just my personal taste, and much more control orriented than I feel people will expect saskia to be.

What makes an Unplayable commander?
I'm using EDHREC'S list of Unplayable commanders. They are commander's that have less then three decks on tapped out, you can find the list here. Although be warned. It hasn't been updated since last July.

How does this work?
I'll randomly select a commander. I'll build the rough skeleton. You send me suggestions for weird cards for it. And we'll cut it down and ship it. Let's put the minds of the internet to the test
Why would you build around (Insert bad commander) when you could play (Insert better commander in the same archetype or colors) instead, what's the point?
First off the object should not be to just build good stuff with X. If we're building Rohgahh of Kher Keep we aren't building R/B good stuff. We're building around Rohgahh of Kher Keep. Weird drawbacks and neat side effects and all.
Because if you limit yourself to just the best deck of their colors, you limit yourself to 30 decks in the entirety of the format (Mono color, guilds, shards ect), But the great thing about commander is that there are hundreds of ways to build around one commander. I can build Zedruu the Greathearted as a prison deck, a evil santa deck, a group hug deck, Heck I could build voltron Zedruu, Sky's the limit.
So instead of simply looking at the cards and seeing what they aren't, let's look and see what they bring to the table. No matter how bad it looks. No matter how weird it is.
Plus it'll be a lot of fun.
TLDR; What's the deck already
For continuing to look behind the door of time for great commanders.
Nah too strong. Good? Decent?
Not horrible commanders
I've been waiting for this one.

MagicalHacker I'm someone who's still not exactly found there place in terms of play style. Tho I know I'm not the greatest at predictions and threat evaluation. So I don't think I'm cut out for control. I'm not a huge fan of burn (dealing with or playing) and I've been told that good voltron takes a lot of money.
