CyborgAeon on Commanders by Power Level [EDH Tier List]

I think I may have posted just minutes too soon, so shameless repost:

Now I know this isn't going to go down well initially. But I used to have Zedruu stax deck in my casual meta. Seeing cards such as Gilded Drake , In the Eye of Chaos , Stony Silence , Null Rod , Blood Moon , Ensnaring Bridge , Moat it makes me wonder if there's a Flash -rector deck out there, or a jeskai Stasis build for cEDH.

Not that it would be much better than Keranos blue-moon, but the draw power in the cz seems like something worth considering.

Anybody know of any spicy lists?

Sorry About the Delay.

So far I have a few suggestions:

I hope that this wasn't too overwhelming. If you need any more help just let me know!

Soren841 to be fair, Gilded Drake and Vedalken Shackles are comparable and considerably common to see in cEDH.

i know its a casual deck but you have way too high of mana cost in everything, for one Dark Depths is not meant in this kind of deck if you dont have a way to cheat his counters or have the mana to take them out, as well as Sigil of the Empty Throne you dont have enough enchantments, might as well take them all out. Tempest Djinn, Angel of Jubilation, Yosei, the Morning Star, Exquisite Archangel, Goliath Sphinx, Ornithopter, Rustwing Falcon, Serra Ascendant, Azorius First-Wing, Resplendent Angel are either to expensive, you dont have a reliable source to use they'r abilities or are simply underwhelming. for lowering the mana cost i suggest Warden of Evos Isle. you can replace Serra Aviary for Favorable Winds, for counters Spellstutter Sprite, Nimble Obstructionist, Spell Queller,Siren Stormtamer and probably not very good if its not a fast pace deck (storm) Erayo, Soratami Ascendant. Hope of Ghirapur and Selfless Spirit are good protection, Vendilion Clique and Gilded Drake some good control. Palace Familiar, Owl Familiar net you some card draw and Illusory Angel, Sky Spirit seem ok. i didnt go in to much noncreature spells and i lck sleep so i hope i was helpful.

Hi there, I'm from the advertise your commander thread.

I used to have a Nin, the Pain Artist deck based on stealing and copying your opponents stuff. I always liked to win using your opponents cards, so its nice to see a deck with a similar theme.

I think your current build has a lot of room for optimization as there are many cards that have strictly or subjectively better counterparts. These are some suggestions for cards I would replace and what with:

I would probably drop the flicker subtheme you currently have because you dont run a lot of creatures and go down a few lands (37 should be fine) in favor of more draw (Rhystic Study & Mystic Remora are nice). Also, one of the good things about black is the access to tutors. By adding tutors you increase the consistency of your deck, as they effectively serve as an extra copy of all the other cards in your deck. Lim-Dul's Vault, Beseech the Queen and Dark Petition are some good relatively cheap ones. (If you want to invest a bit of money in it, Demonic Tutor and Vampiric Tutor are great.)

I hope this helps and good luck with deckbuilding!

PS. Dont forget to comment on the previously posted deck in the 'advertise your commander deck' thread. ;)

Not crazy about Gilded Drake or Phyrexian Infiltrator and I feel like you could throw two more super busted ETB cards into the mix. This looks super fun to play though!!!! Just might have to build it myself and give it a try. Awesome job, zigkid3!
