Firegriff on EDH Custom Deck Challenge

The Challenge that I propose is this: pick a plane, then design a featured Commander of a Legend from the plane. The twist is that the Commander needs to be at least two colors and be designed as a Planeswalker that can be played as Commander. Describe the idea for the deck, how the Commander's Spark triggered, and a general idea of cards you might include as part of the deck if you were designing it for sale. For instance:

Deck name: Saving Grace Plane: Innistrad Commander: Sigarda, Heron of Light (3)(G)(W) Sigarda, Heron of Light can be your Commander. [+2] Put a 1/1 Human token with hexproof into play under your control. [-2] Discard a creature card from your hand. Put a 4/4 Angel token with flying and hexproof into play under your control. [-8] You gain an emblem with, "Creatures you control have lifelink and hexproof. Creatures you control may not be sacrificed. [4]

Spark: After the confrontation with the fused, corrupted Bruna and Gisela, after the 'victory' of the Gatewatch, Sigarda's heart longed for answers, for how to help heal her world. Her heart's cry pulled her out of her world to another, before pulling her back home, where she found Arlinn Kord waiting to speak with her. Realizing now the existence of other worlds, Sigarda has determined to find a way to keep the humans of her ravaged world safe from both internal threats and threats from other planes.

Deck concept: Angels, Humans and Spirits working together to protect and support each other.

Sample cards: Briarbridge Patrol, Cathedral Sanctifier, Champion of Lambholt, Champion of the Parish, Devout Chaplain, Bygone Bishop, Dearly Departed, Drogskol Shieldmate, Angel of Glory's Rise, Angel of Jubilation, Herald of War, Haunted Cloak, Avacyn's Collar, Inquisitor's Flail

Metallic Mimic feels kind of weak in a deck with actual strong tribal tools like humans. In addition, Angelic Overseer feels kind of low impact for 5 mana. While it offers a bit of protection against board wipes, Selfless Spirit and Dauntless Escort are much better options.

Mayor of Avabruck  Flip is a great human anthem that can flip into a repeatable token producer, while Devout Chaplain is a piece of repeatable artifact/enchantment removal. Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip is a great token producer that doubles as a strong beater.

Finally, there are some great mana dorks that work very nicely with Samut's untapping ability. Somberwald Sage and Shaman of Forgotten Ways both generate multiple mana, and the shaman's second ability can't be overlooked as a way to close out games. Krosan Restorer also generates lots of mana when you have threshold. Avacyn's Pilgrim, Zhur-Taa Druid, and Steward of Valeron are some other decent mana dorks in your colors.

Gadianten on Divine Machinations (Cleric Tribal)

In: Dusk / Dawn, Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip, Anointed Procession, High Priest of Penance, Angelic Accord, Luminarch Ascension, Path to Exile, Swords to Plowshares, Arashin Cleric and Temple Acolyte

Out: True Conviction, Reliquary Monk, Devout Chaplain, Test of Endurance, Austere Command, Ancestor's Prophet, Alhammarret's Archive, Beacon of Immortality, Heliod's Pilgrim and Gift of Immortality

Got rid of Test of Endurance and Beacon of Immortality since my current combo tends to make it redundant. Ancestor's Prophet always seemed to disappoint since by the time I could activate him I had either won or lost.Alhammarret's Archive seemed like a win more kind of card in the deck and I was unable to always get value out of it. Devout Chaplain and Reliquary Monk got seldom if any use. Gift of immortality tended to be difficult to set up quickly enough to matter. I am not sure about Austere Command but wanted to test Dawn/Dusk.

I have attempted to increase the decks token generating theme and increase gain life ETB's to hopefully improve pre combo game play. I have also added more spot removal as I face Kalia often.

This advice is for going full Human Tribal, so no soldiers and spirits.



Austin_Smith_of_Cards on Sigarda, the last good guy

In human tribal, Devout Chaplain is a premium removal card that gets to repeatedly exile artifacts and enchantments. Gives you something additional to do with your Human Soldier tokens Sigarda creates.

Increasing Devotion churns out Human tokens, but can also be replayed from your graveyard for extra value. When games run long and you're reduced to topdecking, this is a good card to have.

Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip is a strong Human that starts pumping out tokens once you get to flip her. Scales with the number of creatures you control, too.

Hamlet Captain is a pretty nice cheap Human lord in green.

Herald of War makes all your creature spells cost less, and is an evasive flier herself that grows over time.

Odric, Master Tactician creates favorable combat steps, or makes all your defending opponents forced to not block and thereby swing in for lethal damage.

ill be updating a little, so you can change out Mortify for Vindicate now you can keep them both in, i love my control, it is amazing ! but the ability to destroy target permanent for the exact same cost... amazing ! i dont see Path to Exile or Swords to Plowshares if money is an issue just get Swords to Plowshares very cheep very good !, if you can have the option to exile rather then Destroy choose exile to many people run indestructible.

Reveillark oh Reveillark, Reveillark ,Reveillark is amazing i love him he works wonders with Karmic Guide both are really strong in there own right even more so when his P/T is 2/2 "my commander says you come back, and you come back and you come too ! lol.

nice small cards fro protections that can be reanimated Selfless Spirit never failed me ! can sac at instant speed and save alot of hassle ! - Sun Titan great animated and great card - Devout Chaplain only matters on how much humans you have on final build, but it has saved me alot so if you have an extra spot and maybe like 8+ humans throw him in - Ashnod's Altar with reanimation i love to have a sac outlet that produces mana ! i love this - Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip okay this card, is a creature, easy to kill off, and turn into a planeswalker, +1 keeping your card advantage, with all that draw this shouldn't hurt you, -X reanimate again ! can be brought back if dead by your commander revlark or Karmatic because it goes back as a 2/3 creature to your graveyard ! and can be searched in your deck as a creature !
