I_TappedWrong, thanks for the thoughtful suggestions! I feel like Bazaar Trader would be better replaced by a cheap sac-outlet, since I'd need to have him out for a turn before using him, and can only use him once a turn, and would still have to find a way to steal the creature from my opponent initially before using him, which is what the sac-outlets in the deck are for. Willbreaker has always been a maybe for me. It seems super fragile, and would be a huge target. Most of the instants/sorceries in the deck steal stuff anyway, so his ability might be redundant, but there are definitely times when the ability would be very useful. I may test a few games with Willbreaker in the deck to see how it performs. Jalira, Master Polymorphist is a cool card, but paying three mana and tapping her to get the next creature from my deck onto the field doesn't really fit the theme that I'm going for. I like the fact that she's a sac-outlet, but I'm not crazy about the cost or the tapping.

My beef with Phyrexian Tower is that it either provides just one or two mana at the cost of sacrificing a creature and tapping it. I like my sac outlets to be reusable during the turn, in case I steal more than one creature. I might try to sub it in for something like Conjurer's Closet , since that card is kinda in the same boat as a once-a-turn deal, but I'm not entirely sold on its inclusion just yet.

Good idea to check out other decks designed to steal stuff. I took a great deal of inspiration from other steal-y decks and came to the current decklist. I'll be sure to scope out some other decks with similar properties to see if there are other places where I van trim the fat.

Thanks so much for the thoughtful suggestions!

Bazaar Trader you steal their creature tap this little guy and you keep it forever. Willbreaker and Jalira, Master Polymorphist . id also look at some Yasova Dragonclaw decks they might have some good blue/red cards you could possible use sense she is the threaten effect queen.

Crayfish on The Many-Deck Dilema

I'll preface this post by saying I love commander. I love the complexity and interactions of the decks, I love the long social and political games, I love it all. That being said, my problem comes from obsessive deck-dreaming, and I'm wondering what everyone's opinion on the matter is.

What I mean by obsessive deck-dreaming is I never feel satisfied with the decks I have. Currently I have 11 commander decks, 4 of which are somewhat modified precons, 1 of which is playgroup jank meme, and the other 6 are of my design.

The decks I have are, from at least what I can tell, not terrible decks. They all have their interactions, complexities, and enjoyment factors to them. Yet, everytime I'm bored I end up on EDHREC or TappedOut, looking at commanders and thinking "Man, wouldnt they be fun to play?". I have a mental list of at least 6 different commanders I would like to attempt to build, and a couple I've already designed that I havent the will or wallet to purchase yet. (Neheb, the Worthy I'll buy you one day, pal!)

Not to mention I'm still a lowly high-school peasant, with a near-minimum wage job and college fees to start paying. This means the money I have to spend on MtG is severely limited.

Another issue is I always feel like my decks are lesser than everyone around me. I don't know for certain if this is grounded in fact or if it's just a mindset of anxiety, but that also leaves me split between deciding if I want to upgrade my decks or just try to build brand new ones that may be better, in an effort to impress others and, ya know, claim a few wins.

So therein lies my question. Do I work on these sudden whims of commander brainstorming and continue to create and acquire new decks, or should I try and focus on what I have and improving those so they can be the best they possibly can? Do you prefer to have one or two decks that are your poster children, your heart and soul and major investment, or do you like to spread your money out and invest in a myriad of ideas? I'd love to know your thoughts!

is a sub $50 budget primer I just posted, first in a series. Tons of fun and utilizes Jalira, Master Polymorphist to turn your 1/1s into massive hitters.

I don’t have much experience with the commanders you’re considering so I won’t comment on them.

Always loved Quest for Ula's Temple, I like your build. May as well add a Forest, fetch-able with Evolving Wilds so that you can use Believe is my suggestion. Also maybe Polymorph for speed or Jalira, Master Polymorphist for flavor. +1

I have to mention it because it is one of the best ways to play Magic - Bulk Rare Draft. You get 45 janky rares and anybody else you convince to do it does the same. Separate them in 3 random packs of 15 cards and draft the cards. You make a 40 card deck with what you drafted and play games with each other.

After the games, you keep what you drafted and can repeat it next time, except your pool of cards is now what you drafted the previous time.

It is a ton of fun. Last time we played this, I got to cast a Dubious Challenge revealing a Boldwyr Heavyweights and Jalira, Master Polymorphist. I got to find a Windreader Sphinx off the giants and could pawn off my Keeper of Keys for a better card.

I really like your list! Thank you for looking at mine and giving suggestions. As I look at your list, I would:

Remove: Burnished Hart District Guide Slum Reaper

Add: Underrealm Lich Elvish Rejuvenator Venser, Shaper Savant OR Scapeshift Lazav, the Multifarious Jalira, Master Polymorphist

The best thing about her is there is really no way to do it “wrong”. Good luck!
