Diaochan, Artful Beauty Discussion

Hey great looking deck! Got s few suggestions for ya... Strionic Resonator can double his counter distribution trigger or even a "bounty collection" trigger. I agree Queen Marchesa would be great in the 99 of this deck. If you need more control and pillow fort cards maybe try War's Toll, Archangel of Tithes, Lightmine Field, Do or Die and Parting Thoughts. Then there's Diaochan, Artful Beauty, who is basically a wild card. It could survive a while and be insane if you can make allies, or it will die right away but you should collect at least one bounty no matter what. Maybe you want to be in charge of combat to control the board and force bad blocks with Fumiko the Lowblood, Goblin Spymaster, Boros Battleshaper, Master Warcraft, Odric, Master Tactician, and Brutal Hordechief. I love the idea of using curses too especially Curse of Disturbance and Curse of Shallow Graves since you don't mind extra creatures floating around. Happy gathering!!

I was trying to do something like this, but couldn't get it to work how I wanted it to. Here are some cards that might work. Excited to see where you take this concept!

So does Nissa, Steward of Elements ever cast Flash on the good boys or bad boys (when outside the fort :P). Also, Diaochan, Artful Beauty wants to mention that chandra is a serious b*tch for taking her rightful place on the beauty throne (have you seen her hair when she was taking the Oath of Chandra?!).

I love it! Now I want to build something like this.

How about Humble Defector or Diaochan, Artful Beauty or even Starke of Rath for further political elements?

Panas on Best Commanders for Politics

6 months ago

Wow! That's some opposition you have in your pod!

You've given us no info on what kind of colours you enjoy playing, but I do get you like politics, manipulating your opponents and winning :p

There are many political commanders, like Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer or Zedruu the Greathearted. Problem is, people don't like blue players (in my group at least) and Zedruu is well known for his power once he gets going so I tend to get focused hard when playing with my bad santa...

I've found that one of the most fun, sublimely political generals out there is Gahiji, Honored One! He is naya colours, so you get good ramp, good removal, good pillowfort-y cards and access to some really strong political pieces (sfr: Diaochan, Artful Beauty!). Also some of the best token generators to go wide and abuse Gahiji's ability.

So yeah! I would suggest looking at Gahiji, Honored One, and the curses in red (Curse of Bloodletting), green (Curse of Predation) and white (Curse of Exhaustion) to make a brew that specifically paints targets on your opponents heads :p

If you wanted to, I could make a list to give you some ideas :)

For lands, you could also go with the tri-colored lands from Khans of Tarkir and Shards of Alara.

Diaochan, Artful Beauty, Sheoldred, Whispering One, Rhystic Study, and Chromatic Lantern are your biggest budget offenders if you don't already own them, so look at replacing those first.

nobu_the_bard on Fun: where to start?

Norin the Wary likes stuff like Confusion in the Ranks, Impact Tremors, Pandemonium, Purphoros, God of the Forge, Warstorm Surge (things that can benefit from his constant triggers).

The decks often include a lot of chaos stuff too, like KIngWiggins suggested, maybe Possibility Storm or sillier stuff like Goblin Game (not a lot of stuff at that level of silly though).

Maybe a Reverberate variant or two also, but you need to not use too many of these unless you're bringing a lot of your own stuff to copy in the deck. You'll never get to target some goofball's Time Stretch with your Wild Ricochet if you don't include Wild Ricochet, after all!

Personally I'd like some political stuff like Diaochan, Artful Beauty, Humble Defector, Assault Suit, Avarice Amulet, Throne of the High City (and maybe Homeward Path or Brand heh) but that's just me. Not everyone enjoys that stuff.

DemonDragonJ on List of Commanders by Home ...

8 months ago

Now that WotC's Commander products are an annual product (I still refer to the format itself as Elder Dragon Highlander/EDH, because I was introduced to it by that name), I wish to make a list of all the legendary creatures, or commanders, who have appeared in those sets, by plane of origin.

I shall be including both new legendary creatures introduced in those sets, as well as previous cards that were reprinted in those sets (which includes Commander's Arsenal), but I will not include legendary creatures that have not been printed in a Commander set, even if other creatures from their plane have been in those sets. I shall first list the planes known to be home to at least one commander, alphabetically by name, and then list each commander from that plane, alphabetically by name. If a commander is from a specific region or belongs to a specific faction on that plane, I shall list that region or faction in parenthesis after their name.

Commanders Show

What does everyone else think of this list? It took a great amount of time to write this list, so I hope that you appreciate it. I would not at all be surprised to learn that I mistakenly listed a commander's home plane as unknown, when it is actually known, so please let me know if I made any mistakes, and I also shall add new legendary creatures to this list whenever WotC releases a new Commander set.
