Isperia the Inscrutable

Legendary Creature — Sphinx


Whenever Isperia the Inscrutable deals combat damage to a player, name a card. That player reveals their hand. If they reveal the named card, search your library for a creature card with flying, reveal it, put it into your hand, then shuffle your library.

Flying, First Strike

When ~ enters the battlefield, destroy target artifact or enchantment.

: Shuffle ~ into your library


This is designed with my favorite commander in mind, Isperia the Inscrutable . As there are no fliers that destroy both, just one or the other.

Create an equipment (as balanced as possible) to equip a player and/or planeswalker.

My favorite is Isperia the Inscrutable , and Here is my list. The one 'trick' I guess you can say is sticking to 'Look' effects rather than 'Reveal' so to leave a bit of mystery for the other players. I've also thought of going different ways with it like Voltron or Go Wide/Flying tokens so there's that.

Another Commander I ran before was Sigarda, Heron's Grace as a Human tribal/Hatebear deck. Here is the list, though its outdated... I retired it to build other things. Was fun while it lasted, to me... my opponents didn't think so much.

There's a couple to work with. I have others if you wish to look through my profile. Hope you find something you like.

  • dbpunk; Ertai, the Corrupted looks wildly fun. I have a Sen Triplets deck on here that's all about resource denial, so I think I could build an Ertai deck and enjoy it.

  • griffstick; Queen Marchesa looks fun, but I have no idea how I would build around her. Mardu isn't really a strong color pattern for me. I'd have to see how other decks on here run her, but I think it could be fun with Mathas, Fiend Seeker . Then, while their creatures are getting bounty counters, I'm creating 1-shot kill creatures. That just sounds horrific, lol.

  • ZendikariWol; Of all the Commanders you have listed here, the only one's I've attempted were Grand Warlord Radha and Ruric Thar, the Unbowed . I have a finished Ruric Thar deck on here that is private, but I'm not sure if I enjoy it enough to buy. It's also pretty expensive. One thing I sort of struggle with in regards to Radha is figuring out what to dump the mana into. I feel like it should be the kind of deck you'd see a player like me use - Tokens + big stupid spells, but I can't for the life of me get an appropriate balance between giant finishers like Crater's Claws or Rolling Thunder and bases that produce enough tokens to make it matter. I say tokens because it gives you more mana if you swing with a bunch of 1/1s then if you swing with a few 4/4s. I'll have to look into the rest of your suggestions and check out builds.

  • smackjack; Marath, Will of the Wild kind of confuses me. It seems to me that this is a Commander you want to constantly die, so that you can bring it out bigger and bigger? Or alternatively, dedicate a huge portion of your deck to putting +1/+1 counters on it? Seems like it'd basically be just two things: Ramp & Counters. I think I could make that work, but I don't know how solid of a build it would be. I am a bit worried that there would run into the conflict of resource management. If I dedicate resources to ramp and counters, I lose defense. If I begin to add defense, ramp and counters drop and Marath becomes less effective. I'll have to see how other users better than myself build it, because right now I haven't the slightest clue.

  • Woiteck; I've attempted The Scorpion God before now I think twice. Thanks for your deck link. Your deck looks like it's really well streamlined, and I can see the mistakes I was making. I'll definitely look into it a bit more :)

  • Mj3913; Isperia the Inscrutable is pretty gross, lol. Looks fun though. :)

  • Boza; Hahaha I actually DO have a Shattergang Brothers deck :D It produces 19 different types of tokens, including the super rare Enchantment Creature tokens such as from Pharika, God of Affliction and Hammer of Purphoros . Right now my deck is priced at $1,130 - $1,177 on Card Kingdom :c lmao but once the new Theros set comes out, we should be getting more cards that can make Enchantment Tokens.

That's a nice deck you have there, pal!

Just my two cents:

I run a deck with Isperia the Inscrutable at the helm and it needs a lot of bounce and telepathy effects for it to work nicely, and I see you don't run much if any, so I'd consider cutting it unless you really like the card or if your opponents like to show their hands lol or it is used politically

Quicksilver Amulet is kind of another Thran Temporal Gateway so it may work for you

A few other options are Isperia the Inscrutable , and Daxos of Meletis , both Azorius with evasive deck designs and based on connecting.

Well, to me Isperia the Inscrutable seems really fun. A deck of fliers, hand revealing like Gitaxian Probe bounce spells like Unsummon or Remand so you know what's in their hand . . .

Great, I think I need to build this now. If you decide to go that route and want any help just let me know!

Isperia the Inscrutable

Isperia, Supreme Judge

Hey all.

With the spoiling of the new guild kits the Azorius has really inspired me to build an Azorius deck.

I can't decide between the two Isperias though. One lends itself to flier tribal, while one lends itself to a more pillowfort strategy. Both sound really fun to me, so I can't decide.

Any thoughts?

I rin it in my Isperia the Inscrutable deck that only has Azor as a 99 card, but my commander can tutor him, so yeah.
