@SynergyBuild: What I'm trying to say is: I wanted to know 's biggest bane in CMDR is as a CMDR; the hardest can handle while still having a shred of a chance of winning. If Animar, Soul of Elements isn't it, & neither is Sigarda, Host of Herons , then who is harder than either? Once I get the results imputed, & find out what weakness' such a deck has, I'll proceed to find such answers, & make the cuts from there (Finally...). Any thoughts? I wish I could make this an actual outside topic, but this unfortunately is where it'll happen...

The Ur-Dragon: Tibalt is a FAR better Walker than Davriel Cane!


As I still don't have any answers on what the biggest opponent Orzhov can fight & has more of a chance to lose, than win; I'd like some ideas. Once I find the right CMDR, I'll adapt my Orzhov deck further based on how to beat it. Then we'll talk abut cuts; though Edicts are the obvious first to die as I already have enough needed to deal w/ Animar, Soul of Elements , & even Sigarda #1 ( Sigarda, Host of Herons ). All suggestions for the most powerful CMDR Orzhov can fight, & have a hard time beating are welcome. I just want answers soon though; I dunno if anyone remembers this exists though...

Altar of the Brood + Felidar Guardian

According to some, it was stated that Felidar Guardian can flicker herself; though I wanted to be sure myself; after reading the card's ability...

When Felidar Guardian enters the battlefield, you may exile another target permanent you control, then return that card to the battlefield under its owner’s control.

"Another", being the key word. If Felidar Guardian is incapable of Bouncing herself over & over alongside a mass mill engine like Altar of the Brood , I'll be more than happy to remove the combo from there.


The next card I just wanted an opinion on is, sadly, not in that many Superfriends Decks AT ALL. & she's Top-Secret Tech for the Deck archetype as her Second Loyalty ability can be abused for, potentially, Infinite Loyalty Ability use. Yep. It's...

Aminatou, the Fateshifter

Her Second Loyalty Ability states, & I quote:

-1: Exile another target permanent you own, then return it to the battlefield under your control.

Can't believe there is a ruling about this as well:

Aminatou’s second ability can target any permanent you own, including those another player controls. (2018-07-13)

So why does so few use Aminatou in Superfriends? Just with her Second Loyalty Ability can she bounce Walkers you control w/o the risk that you can't use them again on the same turn.

Since I'll be making a Primer for Superfriends, I'm going to need a list of Anti-Walker Tech to defend such beings from. Obviously The Immortal Sun , AEther Snap are what I can think of. Does anyone know the rest? Don't worry, I'll get to the primer soon enough; although...

Orzhov's Weapon against Animar...

Commander / EDH* BMHKain


As I stated, Animar, Soul of Elements isn't the biggest problem. W/ so many creatures w/ either resistance to having Sacced Permanents Sigarda, Host of Herons , High amounts of Toughness (Anything over, say, 4.), & stuff that is immune to all this deck has to offer. As a result, I wanted for the longest time what (Orzhov)'s biggest enemies really are; as I wanted to resise above deck, & not just make cuts. What would be this deck's biggest opposition as Orzhov Standards be? Now I feel like Orzing (OTL)... I'd like your opinions on these. If the ruling about Aminatou above is true; should it also work for Felidar Guardian ? & what's the biggest opponents against (ORZ)hov, & how to thwart each one? I hope this helps a bit even... Thank you. ^_^

Now at 99, I'm getting a bit concerned as to why you all deck was initially intended for Animar, Soul of Elements . I am looking at ways to take out even Mayael the Anima , Mizzix of the Izmagnus , even some truly high caliber CMDRs. Your opinion on this matter is needed as this isn't just meant for Animar; it was meant to dispatch of many others.

I'll leave you to your suggestions; if anyone cares anymore...

Erm… Do you guys have any other ideas for replacements? I've stated this too many times now: This is targeted for MORE than just Animar, Soul of Elements ; just that Animar is this deck's Lex Luthor; though it should also do good against other decks as well. Again: Any suggestions? A lot of good decks don't seem to use creatures that much besides the CMDR. What would be your approach to this aspect, & what to cut?

But, with the above comment finally mentioned, I still want to make some kind of revision of this deck so it can Dispose Animar, &... basically many others as well. I'd like an audience for suggestions...

...As I prepare another project as well; Selesnya based, but not in the form of Creature Mania like Rhys the Redeemed , or even Stax like Gaddock Teeg , crap like the pre-Mirrodin Legends, Voltron Nazahn, Revered Blacksmith, Tribal Sigarda, Heron's Grace , or just stuff that straight out sucks. Krond the Dawn-Clad . I also will not use Enchantress decks either. I just want something Different from . After this project is complete, I really want suggestions for a commander in that can do any of this, besides all that, but can still be different from all else the Conclave could've used in the first place. After all, All six Mana Symbols (Even Snow.) have a part of nature & are all capable of their own way of Progress, regardless of combination of mana. I'd still like some suggestions for this in the meanwhile though while handling more than just Animar, Soul of Elements ...

Still at 98, but I'm not here for help of what to include. Since nobody seems to get the decks purpose; It is about beating Animar, Soul of Elements , but I also want this deck to beat other decks w/ as much efficiency. That said, I am here for what to replace in the current 98 for now. I just want cards that can dispose of both Animar, & even more... Eheh… I'd really like your suggestions from here.

Oh, & One last thing. I'm trying to find a card that can protect my Power 2 (Or less or more; same for toughness.) creatures in as I'm planning to update my cEDH Boros deck for the use of playtesting against Tier 3, & potentially better if successful; same for stuff that protects my CMC <=3; there doesn't seem to be any of this; & I'd like something like that in aforementioned Boros Deck... :/

Alright... just to be clear, this deck isn't only meant to be used against Animar, Soul of Elements . It's just a thought I had since making such an deck against it seemed like anti-meta. In actuality, I also want this deck to excel against so many other commanders as well; especially if Animar isn't even going to be used. I'm almost done, but after this comment, maybe you guys have thoughts on what to replace that can work just as well as Animar, Soul of Elements as is for anyone else? Thanks again for the help; I'm just clarifying this whole damn thing so it can be viable in so, better ways. :)
