Gahiji, Honored One Discussion
1 month ago
I saw in an earlier comment you said you hate building tricolor manabases. I can link a little bit outdated, but very useful and informative video on how to make a tri-color manabase. Also, if you’re playing green you won’t even realize you’re playing three colors with all the cheap(money and cmc) fixing green has in it. I really think Naya, despite your commander not being able to be an angel has the best colors in it. Green is really good at setting up to cast your angels and making them bigger, while red and white have the angels that can really pack-a-punch.
The best commander in my opinion would be Gahiji, Honored One. Playing an aggressive deck you will always be the other decks target, but your commander will make others more enticed to attack your other opponents because your commander boosts their creatures when they’re not attacking you. The best part is when you get to attack them and Gahiji boosts your guys too.
Idk how to properly link on here, but here you go;
Also, if you want specific card suggestions once you’ve picked your colors I believe I could be of some more use.

Fistly I'd switch Phenax for a path or swords (probably swords first) Cut Jhoira's Familar for another mana rock. YOU NEED THESE!!
Removal and mana fixing is gonna be the MOST critical thing here, making sure you're on color to cast most of your spells without your commander is gonna be very beneficial. you cant just rely on your commander to be the ultimate haymaker. Either protect it or find ways to play around it.
Assuming that you add these two, I'd actually keep most of the creatures on that list.
Omniscience even with Jodah out this is just 5cmc counterspell bait. yes its valuable once you get it but if you draw this on your opening hand... its god awful till turn 5 if you're lucky. other than that is just 10 mana "win the game even more". awful when behind. Would switch this for something like Maelstrom Wanderer
at the time of post I'm sick so most of my includes right now are only the tip of the iceburg.
Legacy Weapon Gets rid of problematic permanents, even at 12 mana (Cast and use) i'd recommend this... also the ability is INSTANT SPEED!!! :D
Sunbird's Invocation hello 3rd way to basically cascade through your deck. VALUE ENGINE.
Yomiji, Who Bars the Way Grave recursion if you protect this guy. Better than Athreos in the grave recusion part, but worst if you're forcing players to either pay 3 or return to hand. its nice to have both.
Urza's Ruinous Blast Better than WoG, Damnation. bad against Captain Sisay decks.
Zacama, Primal Calamity Just like legacy weapon, deals with problematic permanents.
Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage We talked about this guy being really good. surprised hes not here.
Decree of Pain board wipe + card draw??? YES PLEASE.
Time of Need Would run in Captain Sisay, so if its worth it there, its worth it here.
Kamahl's Druidic Vow another Genesis Wave. Best when you have TOO much mana. not bad if you're flooding either. Great card.
Austere Command Just does everything. but makes food or coffee... Im sad.
Merciless Eviction Amazing board wipe when behind, amazing ANTI PLANESWALKERS card.
The Immortal Sun Value for 6 mana... This thing is STUPID.
Paradox Engine ONLY WITH A LOT OF MANA ROCKS, DO NOT INCLUDE UNLESS YOU HAVE A LOT OF MANA ROCKS

I haven't spent a lot of time thinking about Najeela, the Blade-Blossom yet W3R3PLATYPUS. There was a card suggested a while ago that was a red enchantment that didn't allow creatures to block unless their controller paid a mana tax. That would be good. I can't remember the name right now, but it is definitely in the comment archive. Also, any Goad cards are good. If you are going that way, you could try Goblin Spymaster and Fumiko the Lowblood. Just get people attacking. Given that Najeela, the Blade-Blossom is a WUBRG commander, there have to be a metric ton of good cards. You could actually play Queen Marchesa, Gahiji, Honored One, and Gisela, Blade of Goldnight. Anything that gives advantage to attack anyone but you.

Thanks for the solid advice Zakky234!
I really appreciate the advice and I will still try to help with your deck. I see that our metas are a bit different, given the manabases and creatures we run (I have never thought of Anafenza, the Foremost as something worthy of inclusion).
I forgot to mention earlier, but I also enjoyed the primer a lot - combined with your reasoning in the discussion, it gives such a clear picture of what you are doing and why!
To further the discussion, I run a lower land count, but more artifact ramp - with the new Grow from the Ashes this is looking to change slowly towards more lands and less artifacts. I try to budget my manabase, as cash for fetches are currently not an option.
Queen Marchesa and especially Marwyn, the Nurturer are not something that I have thought to include. Marwyn bringing only green and not having a ton of elves makes me hesitant to include her, can you elaborate why she overperforms, I notice you have cards like Heroes' Podium (didn't know that existed) to buff her significantly, but beyond that, I have no idea.
Instead of urabrask, since I do not like the praetors (or their price tag), I was thinking of the new Garna, the Bloodflame to replace kolaghan - worse body but better effect.
Adriana, Captain of the Guard and Gahiji, Honored One were part of the original inspiration to make this deck, so I am unlikely to ever remove them. They function well enough - give the team a nice bonus, are not expensive money-wise, and are not super scary. The deck is fairly explosive and keeping a low profile early on can be very important and these two do help with that. I like to include a lot of fun, political cards like Fortunate Few - I had Cruel Entertainment in there for a long time.
Have you tried out Selvala's Stampede? That card has over-performed for me every time I cast it early on.

hi Boza! cool deck you have there :D
helm of the host seems like a cool equipment to try out, a bit costly on the mana maybe. Traxos, on the other hand, i really dislike, since he is just a big beater and doesnt bring any good effects. always watching is something i had in, then switched out for Brave the Sands because it was cheaper cmc wise. then i switched that out for Reconnaissance because its busted as all hell, you can activate it after damage, so al your creatures have vigilance and it protects you from combat tricks or stupid attacks.
when looking at your deck, the first thing i notice is your low amount of lands. do you ever run into mana problems? (maybve its because you still use partial paris mulligans, which we dont). should you run more duals with basic land types like Canopy Vista or Sheltered Thicket you could consider Farseek over rampant growth. also if you run those, Skyshroud Claim will be waaaay better than explosive vegetation.
now if you look at my creatures, you'll notice i dont run any dumb beaters without some sort of valuable ability. in your deck Zurgo Helmsmasher, Adriana, Captain of the Guard, Gahiji, Honored One and Dragonlord Atarka come awfully close to that. personaly i would prefer something like Anafenza, the Foremost or Queen Marchesa over them since they bring valuable abilities to the table as well as respectable stats. your creatures being a bit smaller doesnt really matter once you drop saskia and a damage doubler, since they will do tons of damage anyway.
also Urabrask the Hidden is just a straight up upgrade to dragonlord kolaghan. same could be said for Sheoldred, Whispering One and mogis, since i find him really underwhelming. Horn of Greed tends to help my opponents more since this isnt a landfall deck. also if you can afford it, Chromatic Lantern is bonkers.
as for dominaria cards, Urza's Ruinous Blast is a 100% must have. one-sided boardwipes are ridiculous. Marwyn, the Nurturer also seems strong in your deck, since you have quite a few ways of pumping him.
thanks for the comment :D hope i could be of help!

Saw your reddit post but don't have an account over there. My question to you would be: Are you looking to make a Mayael deck or just a Naya elf/angel deck? If you want the former, then you need more big creatures. If the latter, then I would suggest a commander like Gahiji, Honored One, Samut, Voice of Dissent, or Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa/Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder.
