Ghost Council of Orzhova Discussion

There's definitely better commanders you can play without breaking the bank if you want to break your uncommon rule:

Of all of them, Borborygmos Enraged is probably the closest to playable in Modern.

I agree Obzedat, Ghost Council isn't as good as Ghost Council of Orzhova.

Triad of fates is slow but you can make it work if you want to. There are a number of good untap effects and cards like Illusionist's Bracers.

Another option is to run a commander that you want to blink instead of a commander that blinks other creatures. Ghost Council of Orzhova and Obzedat, Ghost Council are both solid choices. I like the first one more as it becomes an aristocrat/blink and can be done once for each player at the table instead of only once per your turn.

If you are not opposed to adding a color Aminatou, the Fateshifter is crazy strong. Unlike triad you don't need enablers for her and it stays on your original idea of blinking things in the deck and opens more blinky options.

Chandra, Flamecaller out Atla Palani, Nest Tender in as another cheaty card.

Neheb, the Eternal out Azor's Gateway  Flip in since it can make a lot more mana of any once color. Neheb's ability is definitely useful I just think Azor's might be better in this case though it is more difficult to get to...

Ghost Council of Orzhova out Darien, King of Kjeldor in now as long as I have with Sisay any less than lethal attack against me can be turned around to my favor. I'll likely be adding more shannenegins like this down the road.

If a commander would go into any zone except the stack or battlefield you may put it into the command zone instead. You are able to put Ghost Council of Orzhova onto the battlefield from the command zone after using it's own ability provided it hasn't changed zones since leaving the battlefield. (No exiling it, casting it, it getting Murder ed, and then returning it.)

Commander tax is multiplied by the amount of times your commander has been cast this game. If it is returned to the battlefield from its own ability it was not cast and commander tax will not go up.

If i use the ability of Ghost Council of Orzhova to exlie it i can choose to put it in my command zone instead. To my knowledge it will also return from the command zone to the battlefield with its effect. Is that correct?

And, as i technically didn't cast it, will the command tax increase every time i do that or not?

Ima just clear up a couple things about EDH and rules so that you can have a better experience in the future.

  1. You MUST have 100 cards INCLUDING your Commander. While you have 100 cards there are other things.

  2. You MUST have a Commmander(also called a General). You dont have one.

  3. Whatever color your Commander is, that is the color your deck has to be. For instance, I can only play Naya colors(Green, White and Red) if Atla Palani, Nest Tender is my Commander because she doesn't have any Black or Blue, just Green, White and Red. But if I play Golos, Tireless Pilgrim , I can play all 5 colors, because even though he only costs colorless, he has an ability that uses all 5 colors. Using these rules, I can play Daghatar the Adamant is Abzan colors, not just white, because he has an ability that features both Black and Green.

  4. You can ONLY have 1 copy of each card. This does not include basic lands or cards that specifically say otherwise like Shadowborn Apostle

  5. Here is a link to the EDH wiki: Use this to further enhance your knowledge, because somethings are difficult to explain through a comment.

Based off your description, i would use Kambal, Consul of Allocation or Ghost Council of Orzhova as your Commander. I have a Kambal, Consul of Allocation deck here: Kambal, Consul of Life Drain that you could use to fill in the slots you are going to have open. I will readily admit however, that I have not built a Ghost Council of Orzhova deck nor that I am any good at building EDH decks competitively. My talents lie in Modern.

Hope This Helps!

DM me if you have any questions that I can help with. You could do this on any of my decks or at my Profile Page Catpocolypse and I would be HAPPY to help.
