Reznorboy, Past in Flames seems awesome in theory, but is a bit too costly for this deck. To pay 4 mana and then the mana cost of whatever spells I want to flashback, most of the time I'd be able to recur one spell, maybe two, and forget about casting it for its own flashback cost. Desperate Ritual and spells like that are certainly something I'm considering, if I can find the right one or two. Mana Seism is really the only one I'm using at the moment. Also, hell yes build that Tasigur deck!

Peoyogon, I'm already running Boom / Bust and Impending Disaster, as well as Tectonic Break and quick spells like Raze and Tremble. Jokulhaups and some of the others you listed are too high mana cost. If I have that much mana to spend, I've either been messing up, or I've been doing amazing. If the latter, I have a lot more lands to lose than the opponents, and if the former it's probably too late to be helpful. And Decree of Annihilation is a hard no because I have a lot of interaction with my graveyard, and would be screwing myself if I exiled it. However, Boil and Ruination are certainly possible maybes.

Have you considered putting in any mass land destruction? Jokulhaups, Decree of Annihilation, Boom / Bust, Impending Disaster, and Obliterate are great options if you want everything to wipe away and cards like Boil, Ruination, and Wildfire can be basically one sided land wipes in the right build.

epott It's not silly! I totally get not playing the ascension, but thought it should be recommended in the event you hadn't thought of it! I also get the downsides to Rampage of the Clans. I'm a bit of a chaotic/go-for-the-crazy-move kind of player so it's a card I love. Glad you like the Tower Defense rec. That was an easy one to upgrade.

Just looking over your list again and I would say you should replace Plummet for Beast Within as it provides more options when the moment calls for it.

If you like the "party" theme, maybe cards like Final Fortune, Goblin War Drums, Bedlam, Uphill Battle, Possibility Storm could be of use?

I do love the flavor you have going on in your Artifact department. I missed that before!

Lastly, I notice a lack of board wipes (unless I missed something on your list or it's another flavor/casual choice over competitive then you can ignore this). But Wave of Vitriol, The Great Aurora, Bearer of the Heavens, Obliterate, Decree of Annihilation, Hour of Devastation could be some options for you. (Creeping Renaissance as something to bring back a permanent type if you're looking for that as well.)

If you have the time I'll take feedback on my budget version of Gallia. It's far from great and I have yet to actually use the deck but it never hurts to get another pair of eyes on something. No worries if you don't!

Oh, and Fierce Guardianship. Can’t have too many free counterspells.

I’d look for more cycling cards as well, since that’s the Commander’s main deal.

Decree of Annihilation and Dismantling Wave come to mind.

Escape Protocol is a faster flicker than the slides, but it costs [1].

Recruiter of the Guard would be a great etb.

Emisary121 Great deck! I miss my previous Master Woundgrace deck, but I had to retire him with the release of everyone's favorite Jund Dragon Boi (Korvold)!!

Would you consider running Decree of Annihilation? I don't know how often you would think about using it for its cast effect, but I was thinking more along the lines of its cycle ability. You pop all lands and draw a card. You have many ways at your disposal to start bringing your lands back faster than most people will at your table :)

Have you considered running Decree of Annihilation and Crucible of Worlds? Then, if you want the deck to be more competitive, I would consider removing the bounce lands.

Honestly, decks like that have a tendency to get dismantled very quickly. I get that it might be funny once, but once you've achieved the deck's goal, there isn't really any point to keep it.

And on top of that I have watched people play Decree of Annihilation because "it's funny". sure, funny for one player, annoying for the other three. Plus nobody wants to play a game where somebody is playing kingmaker. And even if your deck isn't doing that directly, it still is. Because one of the other decks will benefit from you playing suicide damage more than all of the other decks.

Honestly these arent as pushed, but I think these could be interesting/fun commanders. Like I definitely wanna try building the Jeskai one (also we really havent seen a good cycling commander yet, at least not one that lets you Decree of Annihilation for free
