Captain Sisay Discussion

SideBae on Karametra "Goodstuff"/Land-Matters

First thing I suggest is Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip. You have a LOT of creatures, and I like that you're running the whole host of mana-dorks. Rites lets you get even more mana, and serves as an affordable Gaea's Cradle .

I don't think Sapseep Forest is better than a simple basic. Coming in tapped is a big drawback, and 1 life is rarely very relevant in EDH. To a lesser extent, you may find Mistveil Plains to be worse than a basic as well. Mistveil is typically limited to Captain Sisay or other tutor-on-a-stick decks as a means of recursion, but in this deck it seems it won't give you enough bang for your buck. Perhaps you might consider running Drownyard Temple instead? It works well with your Dust Bowl and gives you a good outlet for excess mana.

I see Knight of Autumn is in your 'Maybeboard.' I recommend playing this card. You should generally have access to white mana, so it serves as a better Reclamation Sage .

I recommend running Green Sun's Zenith in conjunction with Dryad Arbor . The arbor on its own isn't very good -- it is effected by summoning sickness and feels bad to play as a land for turn. But Green Sun's for 0 on turn one is excellent. Additionally, later in the game Green Sun's can act as a tutor for your Reclamation Sage or Knight of Autumn to deal with a pesky artifact or enchantment.

Green-White has access to a lot of nice hatebears. I suggest Thalia, Guardian of Thraben , though that one may be a little pricey. Vryn Wingmare and Glowrider are far more affordable and only a little worse. You have a LOT of mana, so taxing non-creature spells isn't too bad for you. Also, your general is a creature on the stack, so it's not an issue with casting her. Aven Mindcensor also comes to mind, but it depends on how search-heavy your meta is.

For planeswalkers, Nissa, Vital Force is a good choice in landfall decks. Being able to cantrip lands is... good. Similarly, Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip is powerful in decks with a high concentration of lands, though I recommend Vital Force much more.

For finishers, you might consider Overrun or Craterhoof Behemoth . They make your dorks into fatties, and let you swing in hard. Craterhoof is expensive these days, but pairing him with Natural Order is a Legacy Elves play that works great in EDH too. Triumph of the Hordes is another candidate for the finisher slot.

Swords to Plowshares is one of the only 1-1s I recommend in EDH. Because it is so efficient, I think it can be played even in a format typically played with 3 opponents. I do NOT recommend Path to Exile , as ramping an opponent is especially dangerous in EDH.

Card draw is always important in EDH. Because you're running so many creatures, Grim Flowering or Nature's Resurgence seem powerful inclusions, similar to the Shamanic Revelation you already run. After a board wipe, they may well draw you 7+ cards. Also, Slate of Ancestry is a boss.

Good luck with deck building!

I used it in Captain Sisay to be able to find Triskelion and Scythe of the Wretched back in the day!

ZendikariWol My problem with Djeru is he's slow. He's 5 mana, and his only notable ability is the tutor, which is admittedly nice with Venser (Who I do plan on getting), he's just too much mana for the effect. The damage reduction is also interesting, but not really noteworthy as it doesn't also protect you. So I may still consider him, but my 5 drops usually are more impactful. A similar card to it that I do run, Thalia's Lancers is the same cost, has a much nicer body, and can tutor legendary cards, not just planeswalkers, and still works with Venser. If I was going to add any 5-drop in that slot, it'd probably be Captain Sisay

Also, I think some number of the following pairings will be the best:

Kess, Dissident Mage + Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain

Muldrotha, the Gravetide + Kess, Dissident Mage

Captain Sisay (All-in-combo) + some Blue commander with White or green in it that can run a ton of counterspells to protect Sisay., Like Ith, with Silence , Counterspell , etc.

Brago, King Eternal + Edric, Spymaster of Trest

Oath of Gideon won't necessarily do that much, so you you may want to cut that. As for your maybeboard, Primevals' Glorious Rebirth , Captain Sisay , Spark Double , and Evolution Sage seem like all-star support, and Sorin Markov is a game-winner with that minus.

I love this idea. Looks like a fun deck to play. I run Samut in my Naya deck, Hazezon Muad'dib: Dune-Inspired EDH, and her untapping ability is particularly potent with Captain Sisay and Knight of the Reliquary . While neither provide protection overtly, both can dig for the many cool tools that this deck already contains. Maze of Ith and Glacial Chasm both seem to fit the theme of this deck well!

Kaya's Ghostform - 8/10 - This thing enables a lot of shenanigans in a lot of different decks. I can't believe this thing is common.

I also feel like Vivien, Champion of the Wilds is more of a 6 or 7/10. She's far more splashable than Yeva, is harder to remove, costs less, and gives the flash bonus to all colors. This enables some gross strategies in G/X lists. I especially look forward to curving this into Captain Sisay .

SynergyBuild on Planeswalkers as Generals: Is it ...

Well, mfogle, Teferi, Temporal Archmage is a tier 1 cEDH deck, and some argue to be the best, or tied for best deck in the format, next to tempo lists like Najeela, the Blade-Blossom combo, Captain Sisay stax-combo, and Kess, Dissident Mage consultation lists, to name a few.

It does this because it combos with The Chain Veil , a card that goes infinite with it, as well as the commander's synergy with Stasis / Static Orb / Winter Orb in a stax prison deck with combo plan-b.


Just taking that approach, Saheeli Rai combos with multiple cards, such as Liquimetal Coating + Altar of the Brood , is in great colors for an artifact list, and helps in getting to the combo, with scry (not much, but not little), while being incredibly cheap to cast.

Then there is Tezzeret the Seeker , which both fetches The Chain Veil , and having combos with it. It also has a combo with a Rings of Brighthearth , Goblin Cannon , and Basalt Monolith setup if you need me to explain that one.

Outside of that, Teferi, Hero of Dominaria makes an incredible stax-control build abusing the untap effect with Stasis , Winter Orb , and Static Orb , while drawing you extra cards, mostly removal and countermagic to protect it after it hits. Untapping two blue sources holding up a Counterspell would be incredible alone, but with the stax synergy and card draw it just makes it really easy to break.

For pure value commanders that would pub-stomp LGS's if a player just wants to spend the money, there would then be Jace, the Mindsculptor. That sounds fun, doesn't it! Mono-blue control always is the pinnacle of EDH fun.

Think that's it? Dack Fayden , vintage allstar, cEDH allstar, greatest thief in the mutliverse, and incredible Careful Study / Faithless Looting every turn or a Steal Artifact once in a while.

On R/U walkers, Ral Zarek . The legacy Stasis walker. Now in EDH, where Stasis is legal. Seems nice. Harmless.


Even from the new set, there are incredible busted walkers. Ashiok, Dream Render allows you to shut off tutors and graveyards with relative ease. It is so good at stopping combo decks, and yet because it doesn't affect the user, it will just be run in a combo deck, blue/black has a plethora. Honestly if this was legal in cEDH, I'd imagine it tier 1.5.

Ral, Storm Conduit makes a great storm EDH commander, possibly better than some alternatives. Cards like Doublecast , Fork , Twincast , etc. all can be copied infinitely targetting each other, which allows Ral to go infinite damage. It is a sweet combo deck, another very competitive walker.

Teferi, Time Raveler could actually see very competitive play, like the original Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir was occasionally thought to with Knowledge Pool , really with the addition of minor removal/draw, some worse flash enabling IMO, and white added into the color identity, and a cheaper cost. This means Enlightened Tutor , cards like Rule of Law or other stax, etc. can combo.

So mfogle, do you really think a tier 2 deck like Prossh, Skyraider of Kher , some tier 4 deck like Edgar Markov , tier 3 Muldrotha, the Gravetide , or tier 2.5 Niv-Mizzet, Parun or Narset, Enlightened Master are so much better than any walker throughout Magic History?
