I'm living that XMage life for Commander.
So I'm looking for similar cards. My knowledge of the deeper and older world of Magic is limited so I don't know all these sweet cards off-hand, not to mention I rarely partake in Commander.
Anybody know any effective replacements or similar effects? It's probably obvious to most of you but Animar can smack that sucker down pretty quick and ruin a lot of your opponents as has been discovered by others.
So yeah. Throw your ideas at me please! Happy Turkey Day and Shopping life to all you people in this great Jeskai colored nation of ours!

kyuuri117, those artworks are based off of very famous Noveau artworks done by famous people (I don't have the proper information yet). Sandreline and Eric Klug took their images from the same sources. Eric Klug almost always does his artwork based off of historical artwork that he can recreate on a small canvas. The base artwork on the Animar, Soul of Elements alter is a legitimate piece of artwork done by a historical artist that Eric Klug used as source material for his alter. Same goes with pretty much all of his work, like that Reflecting Pool.

Well you sure as hell should. Because I just spent the better part of my days off adding them all to our database for you. Well, most of them. The ones that I could crop without shopping and the ones that actually looked good. It's a shame I couldn't get his Adun Oakenshield medieval wooden manuscript alter on here. Maybe when I feel like it I'll fiddle around with photoshop to get it to lay flat so I can get that luxurious gold textured border intact.
Here are some samples:
- Reflecting Pool
- The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale
- Damia, Sage of Stone
- Elspeth Tirel
- Ancestral Recall
- Black Lotus
- Mox Emerald
- Mox Jet
- Mox Pearl
- Mox Ruby
- Mox Sapphire
- Time Walk
- Candelabra of Tawnos
- Animar, Soul of Elements
Want to see the images in more detail? Click on the little green "A"s next to the card names and you'll be brought to each individual alter's page. Then, open the card image in a new tab/window that you'll see there to be presented with a larger resolution image.

incorrect, i have my own fully finished krenko deck that ive played since krenko was first printed and cost me nearly 1000$ as mono red. which is also my first edh deck, and a quarter of the deck is lord effects that make them much bigger than 1/1s or pain effects like Purphoros, God of the Forge, not to mention that tokens are often used as sacrifice fodder to things like Goblin Bombardment and Skullclamp the second they hit the field. the reason that "heavy deck tech" is in the title is because i have experimented and modified this deck to be competitive against tier 1 multiplayer edh decks like Animar, Soul of Elements, Prossh, Skyraider of Kher. this is my decklist after hundreds of games testing combos and just about every grixis card under 200$ that has a theme based on drawing cards and taking damage. this deck is weakest to creature beatdown and reanimator, which is why i have tailored it over the last 3 years to deal with creatures and graveyard hate as effectively as possible. the win con of the deck is to play a Underworld Dreams effect and proceed to cause infinite damage/exile/mill abusing Day's Undoing on an opponents turn to wheel into more wheels infinitely until my opponents are dead or their entire decks are exiled. with expensive set up cards like Hive Mind and Mind Over Matter, spending 8 mana on decree or casting zenith for 3-10 mana often sets me behind just as much as my opponents as im wasting 2-8 mana on control when it could be being used to wheel away opponents hands and kill them. its a control deck, but that doesnt mean im going to commit my entire game plan on blowing things up as that would get me nowhere as far as the decks purpose, which is to use Wheel of Fortune with dreams or nekusar out and discard my own hand in favor of drawing into another wheel and doing it again. this playstyle often has me being focused by 3-5 of the most potent beatdown or combo decks available, as my adversaries all have decks worth well over 1500$. casting 4-8 mana spells that are worth 1$ due to their very minimal multiplayer power is not detrimental to this decks game plan, which is to set up pain enchantments and kill opponents with wheels before turn 6, so any spells above 6 mana would be pointless if i spend all my mana on a zenith and my opponents play several creatures to attack me before my next turn, i have tested zenith and 90% of the time i cast it i use 5x more mana than a Damnation or Toxic Deluge and have no mana left over to deal with my opponents during the 5 turns before my next untap phase.

I'm making a commander deck and am trying to decide between Marchesa, the Black Rose and Vela the Night-Clad. Thetwo decks I expect to play against are an Animar, Soul of Elements ramp and the same with Omnath, Locus of Rage Any ideas would be great! Thanks!

Kravian i think that's the whole point: they don't want you to cast newkozilek for free. with the introduction of Ancestral Statue i've been able to cast the eldrazi titans for free as early as turn 4 in my Animar, Soul of Elements deck.
i'm hoping that cards like Shivan Reef and Cascade Bluffs will be able to fill the needs for the two required colorlesss mana in newkozilek's mana cost (and who knows about Command Tower and Ancient Ziggurat) otherwise i probably won't run him
