Quicksilver on Sisay: The Ultimate Human Tribal **PRIMER**

Alesha, Who Smiles at Death works with quite a few of these guys. Mantis Rider is pure value, Hero's Blade for the large number of legendary dudes you have and with the number of multocolored dudes you have, perhaps Morophon, the Boundless ?

A friend has been trying to convince me to run Alesha, Who Smiles at Death which I know would technically be broken, but... I just don't know if I want that flavor fail...

multimedia on need help building zurgo

Hey, consider Warriors with Zurgo as Commander and Aurelia, the Warleader at the top of the mana curve?

There's many budget Warriors. Some that stand out are Mindblade Render , Rushblade Commander , Alesha, Who Smiles at Death , Ash Zealot , Bloodsoaked Champion , Blood-Chin Rager , Blood-Chin Fanatic , Arashin Foremost , Brutal Hordechief , Azra Oddsmaker ,etc. Aurelia is not a Warrior, but she can come into play after Zurgo for big double combat phases swings. Some budget pay offs for being tribal are: Raiders' Spoils , Shared Animosity , Obsidian Battle-Axe , Blood-Chin Fanatic , Arashin Foremost , Metallic Mimic , etc.

Zurgo benefits a lot from repeatable double strike being able to potentially do 14 or more points of Commander damage with one Zurgo attack. Arashin Foremost , Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder , Duelist's Heritage , Fireshrieker , Ajani, Caller of the Pride . Boros Charm is also an excellent card in Commander.

Hey Vlasiax, thank you for your comment! I have thought of running Cruel Celebrant before, but at the moment I don't have enough slots open enough for it to test and at my current meta it's not needed. If I run into more Sadistic Sacrament , Praetor's Grasp , Extract type of cards in my meta than I will consider running it in.

Edgar Aristocrats is fun, you can definitely be running some synergy, tbh it will be an interesting build for sure, but I am unsure exactly how many playable vampires there will be. Is there a reason you want to play Edgar aristocrats instead of lets say Alesha, Who Smiles at Death ?

Itake on Master of Ninjutsu

3 weeks ago

I've made some changes! I've rarely (if ever) been able to use the ability on Judge's Familiar . Swapping two for Siren Stormtamer , which I think will be more useful.

Slip Through Space is a great card but I mostly use it just to "cycle" really. Sometimes it's great to pull of a combo with Master of Cruelties, but most of the time I don't need it. Swapping 2 of them for Chart a Course . Might swap the other two for Artful Dodge , would be very useful to have it ready for use in the graveyard.

In with 1 Alesha, Who Smiles at Death for a Okiba-Gang Shinobi . Okiba-Gang is great, but pretty expensive even to ninjutsu in.

Lastly swapping out a swamp for Leechridden Swamp .

Yes i want to stay Mardu as everyone eles is either doing Neheb commander (at least in area) or angrath oathbreaker. And i fully admit that red and black are needed but even if you don add the white minotaurs having the boros combat tricks and support does alot of work and while not need having reusable grave recursion with Athreos, God of Passage , Sword of Light and Shadow , Debtors' Knell , and Alesha, Who Smiles at Death (though she only hits 7 of my creatures). and maybe Haunted Crossroads means you can attack without worrying about removal other than exile. and i guess this deck is less aggro and more mid to late game combat and kill

From a commend above by Coward, Alesha, Who Smiles at Death actually is a female, lore-wise. She's currently (I believe) the only trans character in the MTG universe. Her backstory tells the story of how she chose her name and her identity, along with the acceptance of her tribe.
