Jasmine Boreal Discussion

I like a lot of this content; it's great to have big lists of viable cards in a central location. but i have some ideas:
- It's worth noting that some commanders are strictly better than others. so if you're building even remotely competitively, something like Jasmine Boreal is probably not worth considering over sisay. I'd make it clearer in your preamble that this guide is about building a strong 99, and that a mediocre commander can be viably in mid-level, not cEDH, tables with a solid deck.
- it's notable also that some decks only work bc of their commander. Sisay is a good example, or my animar. with the option to go 4-color now, this is particularly relevant, since the bar is very low to just add colors to a deck.
- There isn't much discussion of CMC here; it comes out to some extent in the particular cards you recommend (most are cheap) but it's important to emphasize that card efficiency is one of the main things that make decks competitive.
- its worth mentioning that a lot of ecks are built around the wincon, not the commander. Zur is a great example of this; i believe Skuloth actually used Oloro for a while before settling on Zur. Partners are another obvious one; Thras+Tymna are generally just good enables for Hulk, not the central focus of their deck.
other than these tweaks, I'm liking the concept of this primer a lot!
