Halfdane

Legendary Creature — Shapeshifter

At the beginning of your upkeep, Halfdane's power and toughness become equal to the power and toughness of target creature other than Halfdane, until the end of your next upkeep.

Halfdane Discussion

Javiolanti on Halfdane, the Imitator (EDH Voltron)

6 months ago

I made some tough changes, ended up cutting a land for it, but it seems to grab enough ramp to not be an issue in playtesting. Thanks a lot for the help MunchingAberration! The perk towards Halfdane that I find is that even if I don't get the perfect combo out, if any other opponent has a big guy floating around, I'm probably profiting from it. Since I usually play in multiplayer format, that will probably be good for me. I feel like I have a better chance in multiplayer than some voltrons.

I did replace Dakkon with a Sun Titan, though. Dakkon doesn't do enough special things for the 6 CMC, while Sun Titan is at least bringing something back for me.

BUMP BUZZING CHROMIUM FOR SOMEONE ELSE!

Alright. Here's the situation. I seriously doubt Chromium, the Mutable would work good as an ESPER CMDR here. I've a lot of things to add at some point, but I'm unsure what CMDR to replace Chromium 2.0 though:

Oloro, Ageless Ascetic : We're playing powerful cards that best fit my Vorthos Deck based on "BMH: The UnExperience", if you want to poke fun at that name, not do something Orzhov () can do better w/o .

Zur the Enchanter : Don't get me wrong, he's awesome, but... just look at the number Enchantments I have already; not even enough to warrant this.

Sen Triplets : I seriously dunno how the Powerpuff Girls as Esperites would work as it just simply counts as only one opponent as a target each turn. Skip.

Sharuum the Hegemon : Remember when Breya, Etherium Shaper outclasses this creature after Commander 2016? This Sphinx is worse here as this is not an artifact manipulation deck.

Sydri, Galvanic Genius : If she were a Legendary Artifact Creature, she would be WAY better than the aforementioned Sphinx that's more incorrect than The Riddler. Even so, this is a skip for the same reasons as the Hegemon herself.

Merieke Ri Berit : Err... Why would I use this, when I plan to update this deck with one Perplexing Chimera that, when one casts something good, I trade control over such a much needed creature anyway, while Eldrazi Displacer can easily give me back my Chimera. Now I just want to protect my Displacer though....

Aminatou, the Fateshifter : Awesome Walker, unsure if she'll do any good here; though this is part Value Town, so how should I know? Opinions?

Ertai, the Corrupted : The original Ertai, Wizard Adept is far & away, the better creature, & the latter is better off as a part of the 99 (98 is Partners based...) anyway.

Varina, Lich Queen : If I wanted to make a Zombie Tribal Deck, I'd use either her, or even Thraximundar ; & exclude anything involving "Gisa the Mad"; she's a (A kitten died as I said the B word, & is censored by #CATMEGEDDON), & clearly wants to kill both Stitcher Geralf , Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist , & everything they both worked on as "Impurities" to the undead. Kaya, Orzhov Usurper , & Teyo Verada both say hi, you Mad, Necromancing, Excuse for a MTG Character. I hope you get executed by the Inquisitors of Innistrad; by Guillotine! & if anyone tries to use Ghoulcaller Gisa, even Gisa & Geralf (See? No Links because Gisa the Mad doesn't deserve this crap! :D) for Zombie Tribal decks in the future, Grimgrin, Corpse-Born & Rooftop Storm both say the exact thing Anne Robinson will say to everyone as a former game show host: (Tips head) "You suck!" (Smirks like an asshole).

/endrant, & all further use of Gisa abusing Geralf in all errata, & decks with said errata; Geralf is wiser, & more reserved anyway. I can relate to Geralf more than that Kaya-Hating Brother Killer not deserving of life anyway. :D

/endrantforreal.

Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign : Finally... something. While I do have some even costs here & there, at least this seems decent as I have more odd costs. I wonder...

Dakkon Blackblade : Are you an idiot!? Blackblade Reforged is basically the same effect, just a Legendary Artifact - Equipment. Skip for damn sure! &, Gideon Jura is using it now, after he was dubbed a crap leader of the Gatewatch by Nicol Bolas, & lost his Sural & Self-Determination! I bet he now has in his blood!

Dromar, the Banisher : Why the bloody hell would anyone run Monocolors still?!

Chromium : What the hell is Rampage? How does this work, & why am I taxed to keep this MechaGodzilla wannabe incarnation of one from Core 19 that's far better?!

Halfdane & Lady Evangela : Legends sucked as a whole when it came to their Legendary Creatures. These two are no exception.

(Any Partner CMDR Duos that have a combined Identity of ): (Rips one of them to show they suck.)

Yep, that's my thoughts of all the other Esper Legends. If you have something to say that could be used in this situation in place of Chromium, the Mutable , your opinions for a better substitute is very much welcome. It's just I'm running a COMPLETELY differing deck than what Esper normally runs.

Opinions are open for debate now. Oh, & about Geralf, here's his best quote as a warning to priests (Including Gisa the Mad as a Ghoulcaller.) as he zaps hell on Innistrad:

"Let those idiot priests tremble! A new era in unlife begins here and now. Oglor, raise the lightning vane!"

You have to admit, this is Geralf at his most badass. I don't even give a crud about "Olgor" anyway. PX

Tiny_Sir on Figured out an Idea, Just ...

1 year ago

Hello!

Some of you might remember me from an earlier post about getting back into commander after a 1 - year hiatus.

I think I got the best idea from DualCastGaming who said I need to just play decks to find out what I like. I figure the best way to do that is through a "Steal Yo' Stuff" deck that plays clones and takes people's cards.

I figured maybe the best colors for this would have to include Dimir colors (U/B), and I thought white added in some good effects to add and had some good commanders for this type of strategy;

Halfdane: I know I know. I said I wanted to make this on a budget. But I think if you put a big part of the budget on the commander, you won't be let down since you'll see it everygame no matter what. This guy is kinda silly, but I think he looks really fun.

Zur the Enchanter: Maybe can get tons of Control Magic type enchantments? I'm kinda unsure.

Sen Triplets: Really fun looking getting to not only steal creatures but spells as well.

Lady Evangela: Gives us some protection and is unassuming.

Dromar, the Banisher: Copy their stuff and then bounce their copies? Sounds fun!

I will not be including Merieke Ri Berit because I just don't like her to much. I don't know why she doesn't feel right however.

Any suggestions? Thanks!

I've cut it down to three colors and made Halfdane my general. I think this is probably the most flavorful general in these colors as I believe he is representative of Andy Dufresne (the main character.) Andy has to learn how to adapt to life in prison and takes on many different roles to do so. It also helps that Halfdane and Dufrense rhyme!

I still need to cull the rest of the deck down trying to balance theme and function.
