Anafenza, the Foremost Discussion

Some things I noticed while looking at the deck:

Sorry if that was too many words, but I just typed literally everything I thought of when I saw your deck. In any case, the deck looks really cool, and I look forwards to seeing what you decide to do with it.

I like Anafenza, the Foremost as your commander because she shuts down eggs and Jarad by herself. You can add cards from MagicalHacker - List of All Anti-Control Cards to also shut down Baral and other control decks. In addition, you can play cards from MagicalHacker - List of All "Tuck" Cards and MagicalHacker - List of All Creature Removal Cards to always be ready for him.

Granted, if successful, he will have to adapt, prompting you to adapt again, but such is the wonderful ebb and flow of commander.

Have you considered bumping the number of Anafenza, the Foremost up to 3 or maybe even 4? I remember playing against this deck too many times while it was in standard, and the decks that could reliably get their Anafenzas out were the ones that would win.

If you're going to do the attacking plan more than control and get in with Goyf when you can plan, both Noble Hierarch and Anafenza, the Foremost are good cards you should at least consider.

Also, I think you're playing way too many shocklands and you can't cast Lingering Souls, Rallier or Path under a Blood Moon.

The Choices:

Rafiq of the Many

Doran, the Siege Tower

I'm having a difficult time building a deck in these colors. I was originally wanting to do a +1/+1 counters matter theme with Anafenza, the Foremost. I even had a +1/+1 build with Rishkar and hydras. However, I ultimately decided that having creatures that hit the board and are immediately a threat are better than anything slowing building up a threatening board presence. Slowly turning weenies into fighting shape also invites wraths.

What's great with these two commanders is I already own some of the nicer staples.


Doran: not as great at voltron as Rafiq (but he is still good at it). You're playing cheap CMC high toughness creatures, Which become big blockers when Assault Formation, or Doran but offer no other real ability. Doren does synergize well with things like Meekstone, Crackdown, marble giant or wraths such as Fell the Mighty, Wave of Reckoning, Solar Tide.

Rafiq Access to blue means card draw. Can be run as Exalted or enchantress (both). No natural evasion but easy enough to give.

Have you thought about adding Sage of Hours for a possible combo?

Or maybe Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit, Anafenza, the Foremost, or Shaman of Forgotten Ways?
