SynergyBuild on Commanders by Power Level [EDH Tier List]

3 weeks ago

Nath is a popular discard-stax commander, that uses Necrogen Mists, Sadistic Hypnotist, Oppression, and Bottomless Pit along with a lot of general value cards like Root Maze, Manglehorn, Chains of Mephistopheles, Nether Void, The Abyss, Magus of the Abyss, green ramp like Birds of Paradise along with colorless rocks to pump its commander and other colorless stax options out onto the field.

The list can break parity with tap/stay-tapped effects using its massive tokens swarms and Earthcraft when under the effect of its own Winter Orb, Root Maze, Static Orb, etc.

Because the deck attempts to make each player discard lots of cards, Sylvan Library, Dark Confidant, Phyrexian Altar, Library of Leng, and other effects can synergies well to break parity.

Otherwise, the deck runs a normal Golgari-Stax deck, running black-tutors to fetch the colorless silver bullets like Sphere of Resistance against non-Prossh Food Chain lists like Tazri and green to make enough mana to still win.

Other notable cards sometimes run in this strategy are Mind Slash, Cryptolith Rite, Chord of Calling (with tokens it ends up decently), fast mana to cast Nath like Mana Vault, Lotus Petal, Grim Monolith, etc.


Ishkanah is the best golgari Food Chain list in the format, with Demonic Tutor, Grim Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, Imperial Seal, etc. to fetch the Chain, and to fetch Eternal Scourge there are a ton of green and black tutors.

With Delirium so easy to get between fetchlands, instants, sorceries, and Lotus Petals, Commune with the Gods and other self-mill cards milling over creatures and artifacts, etc. You can reasonably make infinite spiders with Food Chain, and if you can pay Ishkanah's cost you win.

Jessiquinha Commune with the Gods is great because it can grab a Rhizome Lurcher (my favorite Guilds of Ravnica card btw) and throw some other creatures into the yard to use to bulk him up. I'd try Altar's Reap instead of Night's Whisper because once again, it can put creatures in the graveyard. Test out the suggestions and see how you fell with them. Great deck too! +1

Hey thanks for the suggestion. What would Open the Vaults do for this deck though? The only payoffs are Search for Azcanta  Flip and Kruphix's Insight.

If you want to play it, you could build a Search, Kruphix, Commune with the Gods, Starfield of Nyx deck, like Seth's Starfield Paradox. But don't play Paradox because it's terrible.

My only thoughts on this deck are that it lacks hard removal. Journey to Nowhere is the best white removal and fits in perfectly with the theme of your deck. Dead Weight is good too because it can be recurred after it kills something. I would try to have at least 4 pieces of hard removal in your deck to strengthen it against aggro.

Another thing to note is that your deck has a lot of 2- and 3-ofs. This is not always a bad thing. However, there are without doubt going to be cards that are better than others. One card I see that isn't being used to its greatest potential is Edge of Divinity. That card would be well suited in a deck that plays creatures that are both white and black to gain the full +3/+3, but this deck only has creatures of one color, hindering the card.

Custodi Squire combos with Angelic Renewal to make an infinitely recurring 3/3 flier, which can be difficult for some decks to deal with. It's also simply a good value creature to run.

If you're willing to go into green, it offers great enchantment-matters cards like Kruphix's Insight and Commune with the Gods. However, the color pair you already have offer good synergy and diluting it with another color won't necessarily make it better.

Since you are playing five colours you might wish to consider Shard Convergence and Untamed Wilds. Oketra the True might also be a worthy consideration for this deck. Extinguish All Hope may be a fun consideration for a deck that mostly plays enchantment creatures that are indestructible. Humbler of Mortals may be a fun consideration as well as Commune with the Gods: useful and it is on theme. Thassa's Devourer may also be a fun addition to the deck. Whitewater Naiads could potentially make all your creatures unblockable. Worst Fears is also something fun and evil you might want to add to this deck. Rewind and Dissolve are worthy counter spells.

I hope these suggestions prove to be of some use!

You might be interested in Bloodbond March. Also, with that many enchantments, Commune with the Gods or Benefaction of Rhonas might be useful.

Why tron lands? You could run forests and mana dorks and you'd free up all the star, sphere and search colourless cards. With the extra slots you could play Arbor Elf/Utopia Sprawl/Commune with the Gods/Kruphix's Insight as well as something like Ghostly Prison into Sphere of Safety.
