Last_Laugh on Choosing a new Commander

3 days ago

One good path for building decks (assuming you don't mind sharing cards or proxying the 2nd copy) is to share as many colors as possible. This makes building new decks a lot less expensive and eventually you have all your colors covered for different strategies and can build just about anything with minimal purchases. I.e. you run Marchesa, so something like Animar, Soul of Elements , Muldrotha, the Gravetide , Queen Marchesa , etc.

My first 3 EDH decks all shared Izzet colors and it made things much easier on my wallet. Narset, Enlightened Master , Marchesa, the Black Rose , and Animar.

Animar, Soul of Elements + Ancestral Statue and enough mana/+1+1 counters on Animar = Infinitely big Animar.

So if Animar, Soul of Elements has two +1/+1 counters on it and I have Vizier of the Menagerie and Grinning Ignus on the field with it and I choose to pay one red mana to return Grinning Ignus to my hand so that it will add two colorless and one red mana to my mana pool, Can I use the colorless mana as a red mana because of Vizier of the Menagerie and use the left over red mana to bounce Grinning Ignus back to my hand leaving one colorless mana left to create a infinite loop producing infinite colorless mana?

Here is my take on Marchesa, the black rose: Queen of Hearts/Grixis midrange with Marchesa

I would like to hear oppinions on possible additions and replacrments.

So far all I've heard were "change the concept" and "spend more money", both of which are not really sound advices. Of course, I am ready to upgrade, but within reason.

This is midrange deck, so I try to avoid counterspells (though they clutched me out against aristocrats a few times) and focus on creatures that will come back once killed (but not sacrificed). Granted, I have thigs like Bitterblossom and Dreadhorde Invasion , and tokens do not come back, however, I find it to be a nice way to populate the board.

My primary win condition is beating opponents to death, secondary - Nicol Bolas ultimate, tertiary - Karn's land destruction. Optionally, I might sideboard Grafted Exoskeleton for him to fetch, but I dont think our meta would allow that.

Speaking of which, here is s list of common decks I am facing in our hobby shop:

There are two more decks, Animar, Soul of Elements and Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord , but due to level of bitchiness in the playgroup, those players are not allowed to use them.

I am not planning to make a jack-of-all-trades deck (certain lockpick items are sideboarded for wishes, karn and masterminds acquisition), but something to go toe-to-toe with them.

I have had success with Dovin's Veto , Liliana's Triumph , and Blast Zone , not really the rest, but did want to know about them.

Dovin's Veto was just incredible, easy inclusion, etc.

Blast Zone was something I dropped a sweeper for. Your list runs Supreme Verdict and Toxic Deluge , I used Yahenni's Expertise and Toxic Deluge , now Blast Zone and Toxic Deluge instead. It has worked out well so far. I have gotten the trigger targetted by a Stifle but Mental Misstep ped it.

My argument for Liliana's Triumph is similar to that of a mix of Grasp of Fate and Diabolic Edict . Well, while Zur fetches GoF, making it pure value, many lists run it as a 3 for one, even when it only is great against one or two opponents, you can still possibly hurt three, even when that may not be the common case.

Instant speed, nontargeted, nearly unstoppable removal (excluding countermagic, Sigarda and new Tamiyo are the extent to which this gets stopped) for creatures, even at two mana can blow out lists like Laboratory Maniac builds, Narset, Enlightened Master , Animar, Soul of Elements (doesn't get effected by Pro-black), Sidisi, Undead Vizier , Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder , and Varolz, the Scar-Striped variants. It hits plenty of other decks like Gitrog hard, but is situational.

I think it is really good for that reason, but haven't played it in many games yet, so need to do futher testing to prove anything I said xD!

Hey Beebles, good question. It's a liability in my meta. Aluren and Animar, Soul of Elements gets gross too fast for me because they run similar flicker effect creatures. I've thought about trying it again now that I've ramped up the deck quite a bit. I'll try it again when I play next.

I'm bummed they haven't named the home plane for my boy Animar, Soul of Elements

"In the folklore of its plane, the Animar is the ultimate source of all lifeā€”the seed from which all creation grows. In the presence of Animar, crops blossom and herds thrive, and the wake of its wanderings determines the course of the seasons."

Unless you're a little more specific, I'm not sure exactly how to help. What sort of commanders and decks and strategies to you already like?
