For only 1 black mana and a sac outlet you can wipe the board while Child of Alara would come back.

Im sure you already know this but its worth clarifying that if you use Victimize saccing Child of Alara and getting back Sakura-Tribe Elder and Qasali Pridemage youll have to sac them for their abilities right away, as they will be on the battlefield when Child's ability resolves. Saccing is part of the resolution. Victimize is weird like that.

Cmasa435 Honestly been looking at Meren for awhile, debating on her, Gitrog, Jarad, or Mazirek. They all have value and can be strong, but I was waiting on commander anthologies and then I was gonna play with that pre-con and see where to go. As for Sakashima the Impostor it's interesting to say the least, but I'm not sure if I'm feeling it, there are plenty of possibilities there. It's on my radar, and I'll do some digging.

schmugluglu I've heard of doing Rafiq of the Many support before, But the clone Idea is pretty friggin' sweet actually.Also 10 out of 10 love that bird of paradise, reminds me of an old aura deck I made where I won with a 26/26 trample, vigilance, first strike, hexproof Avacyn's Pilgrim, good times...

Unlife nice seeing you again. Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge is an interesting choice. Though the more I've looked into it she's not something that would really be effective in my playgroup (very creature heavy), great choice, so much so it's crossed my mind 10/10. Yet again a commander I've looked into with a very serious interest Borborygmos Enraged, my biggest problem is he can take a bit to get out, and even then becomes either a huge target or removed instantly. The deck I designed was probably super janky, but funny if it went off. I ultimately gotta pass on him as much as I hate to say it. Ezuri, Claw of Progress This one is a tricky one, I've been on the fence about him forever, in one hand if he sticks your doing good, if he isn't my deck is crippled. I feel with him I would just have to play him, but I'm just not sure, he doesn't "Pop" in my head if you get what I'm saying? Anywho you've had some fantastic suggestions. Sorry I feel like I'm shooting down.

Errast beard is always a plus, and I've honestly never really thought of doing Feldon of the Third Path He's certainly different, I'll do some digging see if he sparks anything for me.

griffstick I seriously feel like a broken tape recorder saying this, I have done plenty of digging and playing with Selvala, both iterations. She's one I could never settle on how I wanted to build her and every iteration I was never ever happy. She's a great character and a pair of cool cards, but I was just never happy playing it. Kaervek the Merciless is pretty sweet, never really thought of the Political options with him. Idk if I will dig super deep with him, but he's definitely worth looking into.

landofMordor Oh Rashmi, sweet Rashmi. Both her and Yidris have been on and off projects for me. She is just such a value engine, but DEAR GOD! I can't decide or really be happy with any of the decks I've thought up on TappedOut It's easily in the double digits for her and Yidris each. Hence why I come to you guys for a little clarity, she's one where I more need suggestions on what kind of build. Clones is a neat one, but she's been a headache to me I've dropped time and time again. Ok... Sorry my head hurts a bit thinking of her again, Lazav, Dimir Mastermind is neat-o, but isn't he more of a mill/voltron thing? I could do clones, but I don't wanna force something that the deck isn't.

As for Stealing

I should have kinda expected this. I like taking things, and copying things. It was meant as a general statement, and I thought I was kinda clear with saying the deck doesn't have to. So suggest random goblins or vampires or merfolk or trombones or whatever please don't feel restricted by the fact I like to clone/steal things.

I'm also sorry, I've done a lot of research on stuff like EDHREC so I know a fair bit of commanders. Please don't be offended that I've seen the commander before, I have a hard time choosing thing like this. And my friends as much as I love them, are always sarcastic with this kind of thing. ("you should make a boardwipe tribal deck with Child of Alara as the commander" that is an actual suggestion I was given once)


Trust me the suggestions are great and I write the ones I don't know down and look 'em up. You guys are awesome

Two small notes, Gift of Immortality isn't destroyed, it is put into the graveyard as a state based action (still goes to the graveyard, so not a huge difference). Also, if Gift of Immortality is controlled by a different player than Child of Alara the abilities get put on the stack in APNAP order, so depending on whose turn it is determines whether Child of Alara returns to be destroyed by it's own effect, or comes back after the board wipe.

next time, make sure to link the cards by putting them in brackets

to answer your question, Gift of Immortality does not get destroyed by Child of Alara's effect, it gets destroyed as child is destroyed, because its attached to child. both effects go on the stacks because they trigger at the same time, and you choose which order to resolve them. so you would choose to resolve child first, destroy everything, then child would come back, then gift comes back at the end step.

Thanks for the interesting review. I currently run 19 dedicated ramp cards. I think it should be enough. Perhaps one more would help the consistency, but is there a great dork missing?

The Tabernacle is awsome yes, only the price is to cry for xD

Living Plane I have my doubts, because I can't find it with Sisay. So how many times does it actually end a game in this deck?

My Sisay deck is by far my most powerful deck. But I have high hopes about my new Gods deck. It is still private, cause my meta checks my actions on here regulary. I think this will be super fun to play. Ever played with Child of Alara. Cause I chose her as the Commnader and I am looking for some great abuses with her... evil grin

The new gods from Amonkhet really suck, which is a shame :(

I will go to your list in a moment. Lets see what I might have for you ;)

I am aiming to go high with Sisay on T/O, so if you like to give it a vote, then plz don;t hold back xD
