SynergyBuild on Commanders by Power Level [EDH Tier List]

Yeah, and storm is overrated IMO, trust me, there are many reasons I think that a 99 card colorless stax deck without a commander is able to compete in High Powered, not Competitive, not 'Maximum Powered,' but it is as good, relatively to almost each and every other High-Powered list I have tested out, meaning it is equal in winrate to the following lists from a set of hundreds of games against the Tier 1-2 lists:

Xira Arien Paradox Storm, Azami, Lady of Scrolls Paradox Combo-Control, Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker Token-Combo, Talrand, Sky Summoner Control&Extra Turns, Gaddock Teeg Creature-Stax/Hatebears, Sliver Queen Combo, Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir Lockout Combo, Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow turns, Zada, Hedron Grinder storm, Dralnu, Lich Lord Paradox Storm, Inalla, Archmage Ritualist Infinite Turn Combo, Ishkanah, Grafwidow Food Chain, Shattergang Brothers stax, Nin, the Pain Artist IsoRev Combo, Selvala, Explorer Returned Combo-Stax, Seton, Krosan Protector ElfBall/Druid Tribal, and The Locust God combo.

Consider these swaps:

x2 Forest, x2 Swamp -> x3 Hissing Quagmire, x1 Dark Petition

x1 Hythonia the Cruel -> x1 Dark Petition

x4 Doom Blade -> x2 Removal (see Vraska's Contempt alternatives), x1 Seasons Past, x1 Dark Petition

x1 Animist's Awakening, x2 Commune with Nature -> x4 Grapple with the Past

x4 Rampant Growth -> x4 Vessel of Nascency

x1 Sisters of Stone Death -> x1 Ishkanah, Grafwidow

x4 Pharika's Chosen -> x4 Gnarlwood Dryad

Some number of Pulse of Murasa could also be helpful if early game rushes are a problem. Maybe for 1 or 2 between Vessel and Grapple.

Sideboard should be where enchantment/artifact hate goes (2-3 is a good number, Naturalize is efficient, cheap, and good enough for most situations). Consider for sideboard a pair of Languish for go-wide strategies, and some exile removal for go-tall hard-to-remove strategies.

Vraska's Contempt alternatives: I think planeswalkers will be hard for the deck to deal with, unless creatures are chained efficiently, so making sure your removal hits planeswalkers is a good idea. Some alternatives to Doom Blade are: Hero's Downfall, To the Slaughter, Never / Return).

I became enamored of sacrifice a creature to counter a spell + bringing it back and attaching Swiftfoot Boots to it, rinse and repeat.

Not to mention Pernicious Deed to clear the field. And to bring back pernicious deed.

I already have a GB Ishkanah, Grafwidow which runs tokens, sacrifice, and life gain/loss for the win.

Your deck runs more lands than I am comfortable running (basically, I'm too greedy to play even 40 lands, let alone 48). The wizards and drakes and other creatures that sacrifice to counter spells were pretty inexpensive. Made my skin crawl how ugly controlling it got, and how fun it felt.

Bottom line, the store manager even named it "Muldrotha, permanent control"

Permission to be blunt?

Whoever compiled the new draft of the Tier List (Commanders by Power Level [EDH Tier List]) made some really baffling choices.

The Tier 0 generals are approximately correct (though Tana, the Bloodsower and Selvala, Heart of the Wilds should probably be higher), but everything below that is incredibly messed up.

Circu, Dimir Lobotomist Ghave, Guru of Spores Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker Jodah, Archmage Eternal Kraum, Ludevic's Opus Momir Vig, Simic Visionary Oona, Queen of the Fae Ruric Thar, the Unbowed The Mimeoplasm Tishana, Voice of Thunder Varolz, the Scar-Striped

These should definitely not be Tier 1. Meanwhile, Tier 2 is pretty messed up, and I don't even have enough time to type out the ways, but the short version: all three Niv-Mizzets at the same power??? Ishkanah, Grafwidow at the same power as The Locust God?? Selvala, Explorer Returned at the same power as Zada, Hedron Grinder?? Et cetera. Having played many of these, I can't agree.

I mean, I get what they're trying to do? But I think that abolishing the .5 tiers was a poor decision (since there's clear disparity within each tier) and I think they folded the wrong Tier 2 decks into the new Tier 1 category.

Can someone explain to me why Ishkanah, Grafwidow is higher tier than Slimefoot, the Stowaway?

Beln Filth looks good i will look to see what i can swap out with it to get in in there as far as the Loyal (insert) cards go the Loyal Subordinateis the best as it drains the board, the Loyal Apprentice is a 2 drop that when my commander is out generates creatures that have flying which is very important as i very few ways to interact with flyers outside of this and my next point which is Ishkanah, Grafwidowfor 5 mana i get 4 creatures with reach (up to 7 if Doubling Season is out and i can then drain opponents for number of spiders i have if i have nothing to use mana on it allows for me to still do something even if i top deck something that doesnt help me

and Primeval Titan is banned in commander so i cant run that so that is why i run those i will most likely be swapping the loyal that i dont use i am thinking about taking out Loyal Guardian For Filth

do you have any thoughts on tuning the mana base any? I should be getting my Tectonic Edge soon so ill update this once that is here as well

I'm flattered that you thought of me to help you. Golgari may not be my strong suit, but I'll try to help.

It seems to me that if you want to kill with Vraska than a token sub-theme might be a good idea. Off the top of my head I can think of Izoni, Thousand-Eyed and Ishkanah, Grafwidow for this. If you can get poison counters Phyrexian Swarmlord is good, same with Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons if you can get some counters dropping. Craterhoof Behemoth and Beastmaster Ascension along with Swarm Guildmage and Undercity Uprising are some good support for this.

I mean seriously, if you are gonna go Vraska go all the way and include Vraska, Relic Seeker. This Vraska pairs well with Vraska, Golgari Queen and helps with the token sub-theme with her pirates. Also, Vraska's Stoneglare is just great since it kills something and goes and finds Vraska.

Ritual of Soot, Status / Statue, Deadbridge Chant, In Garruk's Wake, and Painful Quandary are just some cards that I like.

Lastly Triumph of the Hordes is just an amazing alt win-con (if you want to go that rout).

I hope that I can be of some help, and that I didn't come off too strong/overwhelming.
