Panas on Best Commanders for Politics

2 weeks 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 :)

Some suggestions I have for your deck:

  1. One downside to token decks is that the best token producers are at a high cmc, so I would recommend you get a good ramp package for your early drops. Cards like Avacyn's Pilgrim, Farseek, Rampant Growth, Boros Signet, Gruul Signet, and Selesnya Signet.

  2. You can stack your commander's triggers to utilize the buff from both Cultivator of Blades and Wild Beastmaster which is extremely potent with lots of tokens.

  3. The power buff of your commander also helps to let cards like Spawnwrithe and Tana, the Bloodsower get through. And when they get through they make tokens.

  4. Champion of Lambholt benefits from both token producing and the additional power granted by your commander.

  5. Mercy Killing is a really flexible card which is usually used to convert your own large creatures (hopefully after getting the attack buff from Gahiji, Honored One) who will die from spot removal anyway into tokens. It also can deal with problem creatures your opponent's control in a pinch.

  6. Board wipes are a problem for decks like this that commit to the board, so you may want to try out cards that lessen their impact like Dauntless Escort, Fresh Meat, and to a lesser extent, Goblin Bombardment.

  7. Taking additional combat phases is disproportionately good with Gahiji, Honored One as the attack buffs stack, due to this I would consider World at War and Aurelia, the Warleader.

  8. Some extra token producers that you can consider are Avenger of Zendikar, Deranged Hermit and Elspeth, Sun's Champion.

Overall this is a solid deck, and with a bit of tweaking could become extremely powerful and unique.

Tk4890 on Saskia - TO Build-a-deck

Coupla suggestions:
Hate: Citadel of Pain, Mana Barbs; yes, both hurt you, but with Gisela, Blade of Goldnight out, it is a pain in the butt.
Creatures: Iroas, God of Victory, Ankle Shanker, Aurelia, the Warleader, Gahiji, Honored One Sheoldred, Whispering One
not much beyond that, as when I played Saskia, her non-creature spells were horrible, and there is a basic toolbox to pick and choose from.

Do you tend to win a majority of the EDH games you play with your friends? It sounds like you have some of the stronger decks in your group. If that's the case, then it may not matter what sort of win condition you use since your friends are always going to feel outgunned by the cards you are running (which may be why they're quitting during the slower games).

I'm not going to suggest weakening your decks, since I would hate to do that to mine, but maybe you could build decks that use strategies that scale with your opponents? Decks that use a lot of clone effects are restricted to the power level of creatures your opponents use, so perhaps a The Mimeoplasm deck that uses a bunch of clones and reanimation effects? Or you could go political, and use commanders like Grenzo, Havoc Raiser or Gahiji, Honored One that encourage your opponents to attack each other instead of you. Granted, there are some people who find those strategies more obnoxious than regular ones, so you would be the best person to make that call in regards to the people you usually play against.

golgariizzet on Hail Hydra!

i dig it i love hydras i use them a lot and i get why you want these colors so you can have all the hydras in there Gahiji, Honored One might have a higher cmc but it benefits hydras more giving them +2/+0 when ever they attack. i also think that there are some way better red/green commanders for hydras out there Rosheen Meanderer is great and Xenagos, God of Revels is my fav and the one i used and also Ulasht, the Hate Seed i know these take away your white though another one to maybe think about is Atraxa, Praetors' Voice she is great but this takes away your red here are my three hydra decks maybe you see some ideas you like and maybe throw a upvote on them HydrAtraxa, Revel Yell (hydra tribal), Heil Hydra (tribal)

DemonDragonJ on List of Commanders by Home ...

2 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.

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.

I would say, if you're going critters plus burn, I would start with Cryptolith Rite, Ashnod's Altar and Burn at the Stake as go-to spells that are (at least relatively) inexpensive pickups.

Buff them with Bow of Nylea, Soul of Theros, Ogre Battledriver, Gahiji, Honored One, Iroas, God of Victory, and Second Harvest.

And further advantage can be taken to draw cards and kill things with Perilous Forays, Mentor of the Meek, Garruk's Packleader, Impact Tremors, Warstorm Surge, and Bygone Bishop.

From there, add a little ramp, and make a bunch of tokens, maybe add a little populate for seasoning, and go!

Not to mention Gahiji, Honored One seems quite Kamigawan.
