Gorm the Great Discussion

Looks like you've already got pretty much every spicy card I was going to recommend. I would say maybe look at picking up an Idyllic Tutor, it's probably the cheapest it's going to be and your Rolling Stones/Assault Formation turns on 8 of your 23 creatures. Gorm the Great might be pretty cool too

Partner commanders are powerful, and often free your deck's ability to do more than a single commander deck. Companions give decks restrictions on what cards they can run. By running both it limits your deck even more, since most partner pairings don't work with the companion requirements.
Yorion, Sky Nomad and Lutri, the Spellchaser straight up can't be run as companions, and Jegantha, the Wellspring won't work since it requires five colors, and no partner pairing currently allows for it. No partner pairing also allows for Lurrus of the Dream-Den. Gyruda, Doom of Depths also can't be run, since no partners are both even cmc and have black in their color identity. Kaheera, the Orphanguard also can't work, since the types aren't found on partners that can be run together.
Now, what lists are now able to be run?
Wow, that only took a half hour longer to write up than expected.
Which of these would you want to make, if any, and how would you make them?

You've got a few blue decks, so why not something G/W or G/B?
While I talk G/B, you could always build around the partners from Battlebond -- Virtus the Veiled and Gorm the Great are my personal favourites, but Sylvia Brightspear and Khorvath Brightflame are an interesting tribal challenge, and you even have two izzet options if you fancy coin flips or planeswalkers!
As for Neheb, maybe consider his R/B version just so you get access to black's reanimator and draw pools and even more minotaurs?

Sure! How about a set of partners -- Virtus the Veiled / Gorm the Great ? I've got my own idea but it mostly revolves around combat tricks, guessing that'd be the same on such a hard budget but interested to see what you build!
I'll spare you the agony of trying to make anything out of Heidar, Rimewind Master

I will try and summarize all the discussion so far:
1 year ago
For what it's worth, a quick Google search for Camouflage 's interactions with menace pulled up this quote (from Stackexchange, but quoting someone asking on a Magic Judge tumblr):
- I asked this question to the (Unofficial) Ask a Magic Judge tumblr blog worded like this: "Say Anthony attacks with a Charging Rhino and Boggart Brute, then casts Camouflage. Then, while declaring blocks, Nathan puts 2 vanilla creatures in one pile and 1 in the other. Unfortunately, he gets unlucky, and the pile with 2 creatures is assigned to block Charging Rhino and the pile with 1 creature is assigned to block Boggart Brute. Which creatures end up blocked, and why does it work that way?" and this is the response: "Neither creature is blocked because neither set of blockers is legal."
So menace should probably still require a legal set of blockers (2 or more), even though blockers aren't declared, if intimidate and flying are also considered for this. Basically if a creature with menace is assigned a pile with only one creature, too bad, that's not a legal block for the menace creature.
Gorm the Great doesn't count in this situation since he doesn't actually have menace, just an "if able" condition. The implication there is "if unable, then block normally."
