bushido_man96 thank you for the commander card, totally didnt notice that until u pointed it out!

Workhorse is actually kind of usefull here because of Epitaph Golem , with those two you break even on killing workhorse, gaining 4 mana, and using 4 mana to bring him back. Now with Desecrated Tomb that means u can get infinite amout of flyers or with Heartstone u can essentially create free mana.

With Grenzo, Dungeon Warden you have to remember that u can cheat out expensive cmc cards from the bottom of your library.

I'm guessing this is a Grenzo, Dungeon Warden deck. You need to list him as your commander, and that will help more people figure out how to help you. The mana base could probably be improved by getting more fast lands, but that depends on budget, and can be corrected over time. I'd recommend switching of the life-gain lands for Temple of Malice , as it gives you another scry.

Workhorse in here seems....bad? Six mana to make four and then it dies doesn't seem a good rate. Better to run another mana rock that sticks around. I'm not a big fan of the lockets, either, like Rakdos Locket . If you want the card draw, run Commander's Sphere . Otherwise, I'd run Talisman of Indulgence . You should also try to maindeck Skullclamp , especially if you'll be sacrificing creatures.

As for a wincon, I'm not sure. I haven't played Grenzo, so am not sure what the typical paths to victory used for him are. Hope this all helps.

Arvad and Elenda, Contingent Companions

Legendary Creature - Vampire Knight

Deathtouch, lifelink

Whenever a legendary creature dies, create a 2/2 black Vampire Knight with flying and lifelink.

, Sacrifice another creature: Destroy target legendary creature.


I feel like any scenario which would have them both, they would work together, as they are both very genuine in their righteousness, moreso than most . But I mean Dominaria and Ixalan... clearly different worlds, although I'd love a Captain Sisay as a Pirate!

I'd like to see an unusual commander for its tribe, but with precedent like Grenzo, Dungeon Warden (not really goblin tribal), Vona, Butcher of Magan (More control than aggro), or Jareth, Leonine Titan (Voltron vs. tokens), or Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord (not elves and also land destruction).

Currently i have 3 decks. Selvala, Explorer Returned Krenko, Mob Boss Shu Yun, Silent Tempest I used to have more, but keep scrapping. I need help deciding on a commander i would actually decide to keep in the end. These are what I've narrowed it down to Tatyova, Benthic Druid Ghave, Guru of Spores Okaun, Eye of Chaos + Zndrsplt, Eye of Wisdom Grenzo, Dungeon Warden Doran, the Siege Tower Arcades, the Strategist

Sell me on one or multiple

Congrats enpc, welcome to the jungle! We've got fun and games! And by fun and games I mean the endless figuring out more and more about your partner as time goes on!

Also boiz...

So I want to play a fun goblin tribal deck with all the new toys from Horizons. Now I have two options I can either play Rakdos or Jund with Grenzo, Dungeon Warden or Shattergang Brothers heading the respective decks.

With Grenzo I'm sure I can generate an almost infinite stream of goblins with Mana Echoes and his ability which would be fun and pretty competitive. (Yes I know there are other combos, and if you think I should play Grenzo please list some nearly infinite ways to poop out gobos).

With SGB I have a sac outlet built into the commander, I have access to green and all that comes with that. Plus I have removal on a stick!

Either way the gameplane is to use them to sacrifice into various sac outlets, including Sling-Gang Lieutenant , into your standard Blood Artist, Judith, Mayhem Devil, and Zulaport cutthroat abilities. Obviously aggro is always a back up to this plan.

Hello. I am planning to make a (Mardu) CMDR deck at some point or another. But the thing is: I wanted to make a Doomsday Pile of a certain sort. I wanted to make a (Yep, Boros.)-only pile; & such a restriction is that none of the five cards are allowed to enter the Graveyard; considering some cards are known for turning Graves to Exile Zones. Planar Void , Rest in Peace , & Leyline of the Void . Because Laboratory Maniac & even the new Jace are out of the question as they don't even run in (& I'd like to avoid that part of the pile, please. So no Grenzo, Dungeon Warden piles please. X/), how about infinite damage? That's pretty much all that I can do. :/ I'm actually not doing this idea as a joke, but as if there is even a Doomsday Planarshifted version at least in as a hypothetical clause. For pile pieces, you can replace some, but right now, I have 2.5 pieces for the job: Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker , Felidar Guardian , & a choice I'm stuck between in: Mana Tithe , or Pyroblast . Since we can't merely deck out, or keep some pieces in the "Grave-that-was" idea of a clause (The Spot Removal is good to waste though. ;)), how would you approach this w/ the aforementioned rulings?:

  1. , , & only. Natually: Round Wave Crusher.
  2. Outside of Spot Removal, nothing is to touch the graveyard turned into Exile.
  3. DO NOT USE . This is more of a Thematic Concept; & putting anything not of Rule 1. ruins this entirely.
  4. You may replace whatever is needed moreso, within all this; but I still wonder if, at all, how useful Mana Tithe &/or Pyroblast is...

I hope I'm not stressing you or anything, sir. It seems nobody wants to do this kind of thing. Your Primer for Doomsday is awesome, but it always seems to me that in order to win, you'd have to use , &, more optionally, . Not this time. I have to prove something as of this point. I don't suppose you have any ideas? Thank you in advance. ^_^
