Captain Sisay Discussion
3 days ago
It depends on what you want to build. Edric is a low curve tempo deck that draws into multiple extra turn cards when optimized, so if you're wanting to reach the ceiling of how to play it, it'll be pretty expensive (Capture of Jingzhou and Temporal Manipulation are up there), as you attempt to cast and re-cast extra turn cards to kill three opponents with reasonable life totals in a quick and efficient manner.
He's the best of the three in the post, but he's expensive. I've played against Stax and combo Selvala lists, but Selvala, Explorer Returned just doesn't do stax or combo as well as Captain Sisay (she finds many stax pieces and can fire off combo under protection. That's remarkably decent), so if you're dipping into WG you may as well use her instead.
As far as Niv-Mizzet goes, he's just going to want to go for Mind Over Matter, Curiosity, Ophidian Eye, and Tandem Lookout. He's the slowest of the three and also the most vulnerable in more cases than either of the above (such is the nature of auras on a 6 mana creature with a tap ability- you need to spend time assembling haste, the combo card, and then getting your Commander in safely, which is oftentimes less flexible than Edric).
Azami is one that goes infinite with Mind Over Matter, as well, and she isn't restricted by summoning sickness. She also gets to use Dramatic Reversal and Isochron Scepter if you have at least 2 mana in rocks on board.
Of the ones mentioned, I think Edric is the best of them as he leads to flexible builds that enables higher consistency.

Captain Sisay will be one of the best choices for Stax. However if you want to keep the Voltron theme and play control, why not try Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist? Good combat ability and you can run a bunch of Stax cards to support her.

Karametra, God of Harvests ramps you if you play a creature heavy type of control deck (creatures with etb effects).
Captain Sisay - is a good toolbox commander, but may get expensive as well.
And to point out white / black decks are better at control than green / white decks in general.

For people on the "ban Doubling Season" hype train here. Here are all the commanders that go infinite with a single card:
- Animar, Soul of Elements + Ancestral Statue
- Arcum Dagsson + Paradox Engine
- Azami, Lady of Scrolls + Paradox Engine (with mana rocks)
- Brago, King Eternal + Strionic Resonator (with mana rocks)
- Captain Sisay + Paradox Engine (with mana dorks)
- Ezuri, Claw of Progress + Sage of Hours
- Inalla, Archmage Ritualist + Wanderwine Prophets
- Mairsil, the Pretender + Mirror-Mad Phantasm
- Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind + Curiosity or Ophidian Eye
- Prossh, Skyraider of Kher + Food Chain
- Razaketh, the Foulblooded + Genesis Chamber (with 0-drops and Aetherflux Reservoir)
- Selvala, Heart of the Wilds + Umbral Mantle, Staff of Domination, or Paradox Engine
- Sydri, Galvanic Genius + Aetherflux Reservoir
- Teferi, Temporal Archmage + The Chain Veil (with mana rocks)
- Teysa, Orzhov Scion + Darkest Hour (with sac outlets)
- The Gitrog Monster + Dakmor Salvage (with a discard outlet)
Ad that's not even counting all the cards that are essentially a 1 card combo in and of themselves, like:
- Ad Nauseam
- Boonweaver Giant (with sac outlets)
- Hermit Druid
- Protean Hulk (Why did they unban this??)
Or all the commanders who win the game automatically if you can get a simple infinite mana combo off, which are too many to list here.
My point is that Commander is already super broken on a competitive level because the RC doesn't care about banning competitive cards. Having Doubling Season with PW commanders doesn't even come close to the level of broken that's already possible in EDH, and it would be stupid to ban it. (Especially since it's a lot harder to cheat out a 5 mana enchantment than a lot of the combos I listed above.)

I really think Saffi Eriksdotter is around Tier 2. I have been playing her for some time and it has the potential to beat Tier 1 and 2 decks. It can combo off on turn 2, and it regularly combos off on turn 3 and 4. It can have a lot of interactive games because of the amount of combo's in the deck. I won't say it's better than Captain Sisay, but certainly better than Tier 3!

They're not very good without a lot of card draw (to keep your hand full of land), or some kind of landfall synergy like in The Gitrog Monster. Captain Sisay keeps your hand full by tutoring out hatebears, mostly. She doesn't fall into these categories.

Thanks Mike94 for your input! I made the following changes: Teferi's Protection for Zendikar Resurgent, Eerie Interlude for Fortified Village, Commander's Sphere for Blossoming Sands, Elvish Piper for Wilt-Leaf Liege, Thran Dynamo for Razorverge Thicket, Resolute Archangel for Land Tax and Graypelt Refuge for Gilded Lotus. This now brings me to 36 lands and a couple of more mana artifacts.
I know that I am vulnerable to everything that kills my combos, but I always tried to include a couple of alternatives to Brisela, the Voice of Nightmares, Azusa, Lost but Seeking, and also Captain Sisay.
