@Podkomorka: I created a FAQ section that mentions Bastion Protector and folded the Watchlist into the FAQ, which can be replaced completely when the Tier List is finished.

Bastion Protector is on your list, but isn't pauper legal, unfortunately. Would be a pretty great commander choice --->

DerektheRed on Need Help with 3 Decks

looks like your commanders are Ghave, Sharuum, and Tariel, respectively? (you can indicate it in the deck editor by putting * CMDR * after the card name, btw)

First place everyone will send you is EDHrec - maybe it's already been mentioned? Here are the pages for those commanders:

-Ghave, Guru of Spores

-Sharuum the Hegemon

-Tariel, Reckoner of Souls

Those are all fun choices - Ghave and Sharuum are combo machines, and Tariel is underplayed IMO. Off the cuff, I'll say for Ghave your current decklist needs more sac outlets, more ramp, and more removal. Sharuum is on the right track - also needs more ramp and removal, and look for things to flicker Sharuum and artifacts with sac/ETB effects. Tariel is a personal fave - fun take on control, blowing up everyone's creatures and bringing them back on your battlefield. Two things that deck needs are ways to protect your commander (e.g. Bastion Protector , Lightning Greaves ) and all the ramp. She's a 7 CMC commander, so you really don't want to cast her twice if you can help it, plus a lot of the biggest/best spells for Tariel are also high CMC ( Rise of the Dark Realms , Decree of Pain ) - this deck has to ramp like crazy to play consistent.

Happy brewing.

Definitely check the Pauper EDH Deck Compendium, it has some useful links!

There are also some alternate commanders like Bastion Protector and Loyal Unicorn that you could decide on!

I always have to recomend Armillary Sphere , but your deck might not need it!

However, your deck does contain some cards that were never printed at uncommon that arn't your commander, so I would recomend using TO's legallity feature.

Good luck with your deck!

P.S. As far as power levels go, mono-white probably isn't the strongest, but it dosen't matter unless your playgroup is pull on cPDH :)

Motys on Yennett All Odds, No Evens

So first iteration of my yenett deck was put to the test. 3 games, 3 wins. Worth mentioning i'm playing only in paper and that our LGS is small and deck are rather casual (i believe strongest decks are like 6/10 in term of power). We tend to play long games. My build runs 38 lands (21 basics, 1 fetch), and 10 even cards. Cannot provide decklist yet. My build isn't very focused on single target removal. Thou i need to add some removal for enchantments/artifacts. No Future Sight, Sensei, Soothsaying. Rise of the Dark Realms, Anguished Unmaking i have in other decks.

Even cards are : Strionic Resonator (damn this one is strong), Swiftfoot Boots , some 2cmc mana rocks, Supreme Verdict , Wrath of God , Smothering Tithe (Can this get ban already?), Overwhelming Denial .

Since this is "casual", only wheel effect im running along this Smothering Tithe is Dark Deal .

Liliana Vess performed really well. I don't have Animatou. Jace, the Mind Sculptor is probably fine addition to the deck. Dream Cache is probably better than Frantic Search? Living Death is too risky in my opinion.

To protect myself and yenett i'm running packet of : Propaganda , Ghostly Prison , Sphere of Safety , Shielded by Faith , Karmic Justice , Bastion Protector

Ethersworn Adjudicator was really good in my games.

Counterspell package: Stubborn Denial , Disallow , Overwhelming Denial .

Fun's over pack : Time Warp , Temporal Mastery

Examples of odd cards im running: Herald of Leshrac , Artisan of Kozilek , Brilliant Ultimatum , Pathrazer of Ulamog , Blatant Thievery , Void Winnower , Inkwell Leviathan , Mind's Dilation , Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts , Platinum Angel , Angelic Arbiter

If You want to improve Yenett and make deck real nasty , extra turn spells are probably way to go (Nexus of Fate might be really strong). Old Ulamog and New Emrakul are also Odd cards. Magister Sphinx , Enigma Sphinx , Mother of Runes , Iona, Approach of the Second Sun can also be very good.

Hope this helps a little and i'll see another Yenett video on the channel :D

Dango on Chromium, The Esper Bogle

I second the suggestion of Bastion Protector . True-Name Nemesis can probably be cut to make room for it considering Nemesis doesn't really contribute to the Voltron strategy of winning by commander damage. The same could also be said for running the original Chromium, but I can understand the importance of flavor wins.

Surprised to see no Bastion Protector

AkaAkuma on Little Rey of Ishine (Reyhan/Ishai 2.71 cmc)

I personally run 34 lands with a cmc of 3.64, but sometimes have a game I wished i included one more. You have a few more rocks and dorks in your deck, so perhaps 34 is fine. But the cmc is a bit deceiving, I think your creature cmc cuts around 4, but the tutors and cheap removal you run holds it low.

On cuts, I think your deck looks in a good shape. Just quite spread with good stuff. You perhaps can narrow your focus down some more towards your wincons, especially since you run so much tutors.

E.g. Abzan Battle Priest is a good herald, but lifelink adds nothing to your strategy apart from survival.

Bastion Protector even does a double job here. It's great! But you could've also played e.g. Myth Unbound , Asceticism or Herald of War . I mean show em we don't care about their removal!

How often do you play Necropolis Regent over other stuff? She's good, but I'd probably played something else for 6. You already adopted my Rite of Replication plan, Mirror Mockery does nearly the same thing on Reyhan attacks.

Is Tymna the Weaver the optimal choice for card draw here? It's not that you run bleed effects.

And perhaps you could cut on Nature's Lore for Meren of Clan Nel Toth so you can recur the tribe elder or paradise bird.

I play Cathars' Crusade because i can make some tokens off Chasm Skulker , Mycoloth or Ghave, Guru of Spores and clones. But this does not apply to you so much. I'd cut it.
