Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer Discussion
1 week ago
I don't want to burst your bubble, but Shah of Naar Isle cannot exist on Theros without a planeswalker's help, because Naar Isle is a location on a plane called Wildfire. The same goes for Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer, who is from Alara (more specifically, Bant). Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa is from Dominaria (Jamuraa). Swans of Bryn Argoll are from Lorwyn/Shadowmoor. All of the lands that reference the Ravnica guilds in the title obviously don't make sense, as well as Jeskai Ascendancy, Kodama's Reach, and Bant Charm. Keep in mind that I am not evaluating cards based on flavor text or art, and are evaluating them in a "If this were reprinted in a new Theros block, would it make sense, even with new art and flavor text if need be" kind of way. I'm so sorry for sounding nitpick-y, because this is a super fun idea that I've had before, but things like this make it not work for me. I do love the deck however, and I implore you to keep brewing.

Wow! That's some opposition you have in your pod!
You've given us no info on what kind of colours you enjoy playing, but I do get you like politics, manipulating your opponents and winning :p
There are many political commanders, like Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer or Zedruu the Greathearted. Problem is, people don't like blue players (in my group at least) and Zedruu is well known for his power once he gets going so I tend to get focused hard when playing with my bad santa...
I've found that one of the most fun, sublimely political generals out there is Gahiji, Honored One! He is naya colours, so you get good ramp, good removal, good pillowfort-y cards and access to some really strong political pieces (sfr: Diaochan, Artful Beauty!). Also some of the best token generators to go wide and abuse Gahiji's ability.
So yeah! I would suggest looking at Gahiji, Honored One, and the curses in red (Curse of Bloodletting), green (Curse of Predation) and white (Curse of Exhaustion) to make a brew that specifically paints targets on your opponents heads :p
If you wanted to, I could make a list to give you some ideas :)

Probably one of my more entertaining commander choices for politics is Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer.
He is politics incarnate, cuz of how fair his abilities are. Basically the annoying aggro police, with added card draw for hug effects.

I recommend Swan Song, Oblivion Ring, Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer, Ghostly Prison, Propaganda, Condemn, Ethereal Haze, Holy Day, Hallow, Comeuppance, Linvala, Keeper of Silence, Pithing Needle, Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite, Grand Arbiter Augustin IV, Teferi's Moat, Azor's Elocutors, and Reverence.

First I would like to welcome you on T/O!
Perhaps you have seen it already; this place is a great community where great decks and ideas come to life. If you ever need help with any deck, then there are usually several people willing to help you. Just ask :)
While I am here, let me give you a few suggestions for your deck:
- Tamiyo, Field Researcher : Does it still fall within your budget?
- Rhystic Study : A great draw engine
- Willbreaker : Perhaps not into your theme, but so powerful!
- Hokori, Dust Drinker
- Ghostly Prison : Seems missing here
- Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer
- Windborn Muse : Pillowfort creature
If you would like to see other EDH decks, you can always check the ones I play which are present on my profile page. I like to play with this deck the most of the time. An upvote is always appreciated :)
Have fun on T/O!

I run a very similar deck, Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer is awesome. Permanent detainment! Authority of the Consuls helps a lot too, taps creatures when they hit the field. I also run Dovin Baan and he works well. I like Martial Law too, and Cloudshift allows you to reuse your creatures.
Awesome deck, + 1
You can check mine out if you want, might give you some ideas. In the Name of the Law!.

Thanks for the suggestions, and I'm really glad I could help!
Now, maybe you're right about Brago, King Eternal, but he's one of my pet cards (he's a king AND a spirit, my favourite tribe together with angels), so I really don't want to take him out.
Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer is an interesting card, but it's not an ETB and I cannot abuse him very much, and I could say the same about Hedron Archive, even if I have to admit that card draw has been a huge issue for me since the beginning, since there aren't many sources of efficient ETB card draw (well Cloudblazer helped a lot, but I'm still waiting).
Avenger of Zendikar was in the deck, but there was a structural problem: I don't think this kind of deck wins by attacking, and in my opinion having just one or two token producers in the deck is not efficient. If you want to follow that route, you have to commit to the plan, so you have to run a lot of them with the right support cards (Cathars' Crusade), but well that's another deck.
Finally Murkfiend Liege: I LOVE the Lieges, they have beautiful art and hybrid mana is a favourite of mine, so I am pretty open to the idea, I just don't know what to cut. I'll think about it, but suggestions are always appreciated

Great deck. I really like what you have done. This helped a lot with further finetuning of my derevi deck, witch some more tap effects. So thank you for that!Some suggestions:
Conjurer's Closet over brago, because he must do damage in order to get the trigger started.
Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer will help you even further gain control by making your opponents creatures useless. You could cut the signet, as you have enough ramp.
Murkfiend Liege to use your blink creatures multiple times.
Hedron Archive could help you draw even more cards while being a mana rock for as long as you need it.
