Alright I'd like to become a member. My legend I have chosen is Bontu the Glorified. Unless that's taken, in which case Yarok, the Desecrated

Frankenstein time.

Why not go with a Zurgo Helmsmasher list where 100% of your creatures have Indestructible. Using the aforementioned Stuffy Doll, Creepy Doll, Brash Taunter and cards like Darksteel Myr, Hazoret the Fervent, Oketra the True and Bontu the Glorified, you can build quite the board state.

Then, have a high density of wrath effects -- Red ones are better cos they deal damage to your Taunters and such. You can keep the board clear of everything except your crazy indestructible thingamabobs.

Then, Pariah and Pariah's Shield to create damage locks. Pair one of those with Arcbond and block a big ol' Hoofie (:

Use the stupid combo of Terra Eternal to prevent Worldslayer from being Armageddon. Or use Boros Charm and laugh.

I know that Lantern of Insight can be easily tutored for. Many, many tutors exist. The question is this: is it worth it?

I'm glad that someone else has shown interest in this topic. I made a deck that revolved around Lantern control, though very unsuccessfully. It had Bontu the Glorified as the commander, because I thought that by being able to look at my top, I could just scry when it was helpful, and the rest of the deck was mill.

All in all, I would still like to eventually be able to truly play this type of deck in Commander, however, a lot of creativity, work, and compromises will have to happen.

Oh, one last thing. You can choose to have Nethroi, Apex of Death mutate off an indestructible creature too which is how you'll guarantee your mutate triggers. I'd recommend running creatures such as: Bontu the Glorified, Darksteel Myr, Predator Ooze, Rhonas the Indomitable and Yahenni, Undying Partisan. Indestructible commanders are pretty baller.

KibaAlpha You Not sure I agree with your removal of Blood Artist and addition of Bontu the Glorified and Bontu's Monument. Blood Artist is a staple, and if you're simply replacing it with Bastion of Remembrance I'd personally say that's something I wouldn't recommend. Teysa thrives off of redundancy, so why not have both?

Just curious about your thought process behind these changes.

Stronghold Assassin seems really weak? Like you have to untap with it, which probably won't happen. I'd highly suggest Bontu the Glorified . Oof, Scheming Symmetry ? I think I'd rather run Vampiric Tutor it can also replace Wishclaw Talisman It seems like you're giving the combo players too many tools in competitive.

Before Yargle, Glutton of Urborg was first spoiled (and decided to build that), I was originally trying to put together a Pestilence .deck helmed by Bontu the Glorified , with things like Death Pits of Rath & Worldslayer thrown in for good measure..

How’s that for a spicy one? :)
