Captain Sisay Discussion

soulwarden11 on Yisan the Library Nerd

No problem, dude!

This is a pretty cool list on TappedOut that can give you a general idea for tiers and commanders that can easily be built to be utterly horrifying. The description has an overview of each tier and also has deck lists linked for some of the more popular decks in the tier.


Here's the Yisan Stax list they have linked


It's making use of that new Manglehorn as well that I only just now saw. Great piece for Yisan...It's almost a Reclamation Sage combined with Blind Obedience or Root Maze on a creature you can grab with Yisan...looks fun for a stax list, or even just a regular list since it's so one-sided!It's been updated since I looked at it last, but I started there and tweaked it to fit my own play style a little more and for my local meta.

My EDH decks average like, $400-$700. Playing against some of their $1,000+ decks is...boring or frustrating. They are so fast and consistent that they can have the game locked in their favor in the first 4 turns 9/10 and the game is over before anything else really happens (unless 2 or more of them are playing in the same group and they counter each other until one of them gets the upper hand and then proceeds to crush everyone). I try to avoid playing casual games with them because I like EDH to at least be fun and take more than 5 minutes to finish.

Yisan is a lot of fun because he lets you be more responsive to the current board state, but if you aren't interrupted, you can stomp people quickly, but you have access to enough recursion or redundancy that you can hold out in the long game as well--Super flexible deck to play.

I myself am now playing Alesha, Who Smiles at Death Reanimator and Rhys the Redeemed Tokens (though I'm about to re-work this one to be Selesnya Enchantress (under Karametra, God of Harvests or Captain Sisay); I still have all my Yisan pieces though, in case I convince myself to rebuild my deck because he is a lot of fun!

But I'm smiling thinking about the groans you'll be getting when you play some of those cards! They'll learn to hate Yisan! haha

First thing you should do is add four lands to the deck to make it EDH legal.

Descend upon the Sinful: don't see how this helps you with 30 creatures in the mainboard.

Consulate Crackdown: I find it too narrow. It doesn't have flash, so when you need it most, it could be too late. Spot removal is typical better.

Paraselene: Like Consulate Crackdown, too narrow in its use.

Captain Sisay: You only have 10 total legend cards in the deck. I think you can find better cards for the theme you are going for.

Before I suggest cards and/or replacements, what is your budget for the deck?

Captain Sisay is what makes my world go round. It can be achieved without her however it is incredibly more difficult and I usually just go for a lock whenever she's not in play. I usually use my ridiculous amounts of mana as left over to continue playing larger and larger spells. Putting Brisela into play is definitely fun!

I like your style. Ridiculous over legitimate +1

Captain Sisay because if storm is what you want, just angle her for moxen, etc, then play Paradox Engine & let people watch as you play your entire deck... of course those are not your preferred colors/theme, but she can be ridiculously "stormy"

You should find room for Mimic Vat. Great with Paradox Engine and Seedborn Muse plus your ways to ramp. Also, a way to benefit from all the resources you are giving your opponent.

You mentioned wanting both creatures and ways to control your opponents. What about Sunblast Angel?

Bow of Nylea could be something flexible to search up with Captain Sisay

Thank you all for the input.

Karametra, God of Harvests is a commander I've considered. she's safe gives lots of ramp. Pretty solid options. Kinda like Mina and Denn but it's conditional on using creatures.

Mayael the Anima feels a little double edged to me. If she's removed, the deck is a dead in the water, but if you can keep her out she can be a repeatable thing with enough mana.

Kruphix, God of Horizons is something a little more different, kinda leans towards colorless things though. Which can get expensive fast because of the usability and Animar overlap.

Captain Sisay isn't the worst, actually she's a pretty great commander, and the deck can become pretty toolbox. The but all the real big legends are on the expensive side. Honestly I've checked out EDHREC 's pages aside from a few really minor ones the cheaper legends are pretty lame.

I actually noticed a commander while doing some research, Surrak Dragonclaw? He kinda fits the bill, but I've honestly never really seen or heard of one in action. Or maybe Prossh, Skyraider of Kher would he fit that bill? Could he?

But thank you all for the comments so far I will play around a little more.

Also any input on those two I just mentioned would be awesome.

The EDH deck I built relies on mana ramp in order to play tons of strong creatures. I would recommend Captain Sisay as your commander, as you can use it to fetch as many strong legendary creatures as you want.
