Legendary Creature — Human Ally
When General Tazri enters the battlefield, you may search your library for an Ally creature card, reveal it, put it into your hand, then shuffle your library.
: Ally creatures you control get +X/+X until end of turn, where X is the number of colours among those creatures.

General Tazri Discussion
1 week ago
Hello again. I'm throwing around ideas and what do you think of Geode Golem + Sisay, Weatherlight Captain or General Tazri to tutor out Zada? And what about spellslinger and Talrand, Sky Summoner / Noyan Dar, Roil Shaper / Jeskai Ascendancy -like spells and free range spells like Manamorphose / Gitaxian Probe / Invigorate ? And if we are doing token/clone stuff I would think Blood Artist / Falkenrath Noble / Poison-Tip Archer would be a good wincon.

Food chain First sliver combo Show
The combo has 3 components:
A cast-from-exile (CFE) creature ( Eternal Scourge , Misthollow Griffin , Squee, the Immortal )
Our commander, The First Sliver
To execute the combo: cast Food Chain , exile your utility creatures for FC mana, cast Eternal Scourge , exile for mana. Repeat for infinite FC mana. Cast and exile The First Sliver until you've cascaded through your library.
From there, you have cascaded Laboratory Maniac into play, cascade Tainted Pact or Consultation to exile lands, and set up to draw a card. You can also Timetwister (or Memory's Journey) + Noxious Revival loop Extract to exile opposing decks or make infinite Swan Song swans.
About Urza, Lord High Artificer . As of the state if he should belong in tier 1 is up for debate but you can not deny that he's is better then Teferi, Temporal Archmage not saying that Teferi is bad, Urza, Lord High Artificer is simple faster. Don't Make the same mistake I did , do your research or read the comments before this one.

@buildingadeck - The First Sliver has replaced General Tazri and Niv-Mizzet Reborn as the premier 5 color Food Chain commander for competitive. It's not going anywhere any time soon unless The RC decides to ban Food Chain.

Hey The_Raven_Guy, What're my thoughts on The First Sliver ? Well, it's an amazing addition to Slivers as a tribe, and adds a whole new dimension of deck construction by giving a viable cEDH Sliver commander. Specifically, this would be an excellent alternative food chain commander outside of Prossh, Skyraider of Kher and General Tazri . One particular list I'm a fan of is ShaperSavant's Food Chain Sliver cEDH build. I don't think it will ever overshadow Prossh , but it definitely outshines General Tazri as you aren't dependent on an outlet ( Kalastria Healer , Hagra Diabolist , or Halimar Excavator ) to win the game. With First you simply cast your whole deck and win with something...almost anything really. It offers more variety with your wincon selection.
Outside of cEDH, First is just plain fun. With a Sliver tribal deck (such as mine) you can simply flood the board with permanents, and turn a relatively bare battlefield on turn 5 to something that looks like you're on turn 9 or 10. In this deck, First took the slot of Dormant Sliver - who in my opinion is woefully underrated. Going from to isn't quite the best feeling...but in the long run I think is worth the sacrifice.

Thank you for your feedback and it's great to hear from another Titania player! I would love to see your list. My list has become very foiled over the years, but that's just because I love the deck! To address your suggestions:
I definitely agree with Pir's Whim and at this point, I'm not sure why it isn't in my deck. I must have been distracted by other cards in Battlebond to have not notice it during spoiler season back then. Ha!
Kamahl, Fist of Krosa is definitely a no from me. The trample is mediocre and I can just make more 5/3 elementals if I don't have enough damage on board. The wrath protection is interesting though. I recently added Natural Affinity to my list, and it does the same thing, but at instant speed and 3 mana. Also, the deck is already good at rebuilding from boardwipes. Usually killing my board means Titania is dying, which lets me play her again for more ramp and value.
Green is so bad at removal. I run very little interaction other than land destruction. Mouth of Ronom definitely would work as a way to interact with my opponents more. Thanks for the idea! I've also ran Karn Liberated at some point because he is great removal. I'm also going to being trying out Ugin, the Ineffable because of Haven of the Spirit Dragon synergy.
Zuran Orb has been pretty bad lately, so I might drop it for other Lifegain cards. Buried Ruin is a good idea, but the artifacts I run aren't essential to my gameplay. Seasons Past and Eternal Witness do the same thing.
As for Food Chain , I removed the Food Chain package to lower the power level of the deck. The package is genuinely insane in the deck, but my group didn't really like to play against it. Instead, I put together a General Tazri Food Chain cEDH deck with it. I highly recommend Food Chain in Titania though. You can exile tokens for creature mana. With Command Beacon + Food Chain , you get infinite 5/3 elementals and with a land sac outlet, you can get infinite mana to cast other spells by casting Titania and bring back lands to convert the Food Chain mana into normal mana. Otherwise, if you have a Strip Mine in your graveyard, you can just cast Titania infinitely and bring back Strip Mine and kill all your opponent's lands. Food Chain is busted.
Again, thanks for the suggestions!

The massive changes to burn spells allowing them to hit "any target" or "target planeswalker" improved a whole host of cards, as the burn spells could hit a planeswalker even if their controller had player-based hexproof .
A whole host of cards were also made better by the removal of mana burn, notably Braid of Fire .
TypicalTimmy - That Food Chain combo is a staple of competitive EDH. The battleplan is to generate infinite mana first, then infinitely sacrifice a commander with an ETB ability that fetches you the cards you need to win on the spot. Originally the commander of choice was General Tazri , as she could fetch allies that won with the infinite combo. Niv-Mizzet Reborn was dominant for a brief period of time, but it is looking like The First Sliver will be the Food Chain commander of choice once Modern Horizons is released, since you can use its own cascade ability to cast your entire deck.

LOVE the concept of a Rat card! I like the idea of her as colorless too ... though maybe with multiple colored activated abilities (kind of like General Tazri ). Unblockable unless opp spends a ton of mana to "notice" her maybe? It's kind of too bad Teyo's a Planeswalker, since I'd love to see the two of them with the Partner ability in EDH ...

If you do not mind me asking, I've seen that Niv-Mizzet Reborn has gotten a lot of fanfare here as the replacement for General Tazri , but when I took a look at the primer (and I realize that it is still early in testing), it looks like Niv as a backup plan only actually grabs 1 piece of the combo engine consistently, and the vast majority of his decklist cannot leverage the draw power attached to the commander.
I realize in cEDH, the commander is often the backup plan, but this seems important to note, in addition to his much more temperamental casting cost over Tazri, thoughts?
