Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas Discussion
5 days ago
Yesterday I had over 38k life but still struggled against a 7/7 Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas with flying because one more attack from her and I would have died through commander damage. I got Aetherflux Reservoir out when I had around 500 lifepoints but I wanted the game to last so I didn't use it against my two opponents, only for their creatures. It was a very fun 4-hour game xD

Now that WotC's Commander products are an annual product (I still refer to the format itself as Elder Dragon Highlander/EDH, because I was introduced to it by that name), I wish to make a list of all the legendary creatures, or commanders, who have appeared in those sets, by plane of origin.
I shall be including both new legendary creatures introduced in those sets, as well as previous cards that were reprinted in those sets (which includes Commander's Arsenal), but I will not include legendary creatures that have not been printed in a Commander set, even if other creatures from their plane have been in those sets. I shall first list the planes known to be home to at least one commander, alphabetically by name, and then list each commander from that plane, alphabetically by name. If a commander is from a specific region or belongs to a specific faction on that plane, I shall list that region or faction in parenthesis after their name.
Breya, Etherium Shaper (Esper)
Derevi, Empyrial Tactician (Bant)
Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer (Bant)
Jazal Goldmane (Naya)
Mayael the Anima (Naya)
Meren of Clan Nel Toth (Jund)
Roon of the Hidden Realm (Bant)
Sharuum the Hegemon (Esper)
Silas Renn, Seeker Adept (Esper)
Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder (Grixis or Jund)
Akroma, Angel of Fury (alternate timeline)
Feldon of the Third Path (Terisiare)
Intet, the Dreamer (alternate timeline)
Numot, the Devastator (alternate timeline)
Oros, the Avenger (alternate timeline)
Prossh, Skyraider of Kher (Terisiare)
Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa (Jamuraa)
Teneb, the Harvester (alternate timeline)
Chorus of the Conclave (Selesnya)
Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord (Golgari)
Karlov of the Ghost Council (Orzhov)
Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest (Golgari)
Melek, Izzet Paragon (Izzet)
Mizzix of the Izmagnus (Izzet)
Prime Speaker Zegana (Simic)
Szadek, Lord of Secrets (Dimir)
Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts (Orzhov)
Vorel of the Hull Clade (Simic)
Alesha, Who Smiles at Death (Mardu)
Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper (Sultai)
Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker (Ojutai)
Reyhan, Last of the Abzan (Abzan)
Vial Smasher the Fierce (Kolaghan)
What does everyone else think of this list? It took a great amount of time to write this list, so I hope that you appreciate it. I would not at all be surprised to learn that I mistakenly listed a commander's home plane as unknown, when it is actually known, so please let me know if I made any mistakes, and I also shall add new legendary creatures to this list whenever WotC releases a new Commander set.

Ehh, I don't like voltron though. Building and using Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas taught me that lesson.
I want to go this route because I have a "cube" that's mono-green themed and I build decks from it. A +1/+1 counters deck is a deck type missing in my repertoire.

Have you thought of trying Gift of Immortality? This enchantment provides an extra buffer so they would have to kill your commander an extra time before it gets through. Two other Buffs to consider would be Angelic Destiny or Tenza, Godo's Maul. Both can provide decent buffs to your commander (or something else if she is not on the field).
I run Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas as well and I agree that those are the most common weaknesses for the deck. If you want you can take a look at how I run things with We're the Titans, We are Strong - Kalemne.
One final note is since you are running Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, have you thought of trying to run Pyrohemia? This combo lets you deal 2 damage to all creatures you don't control and all opponents per and you take no damage.

Alright, so the overwhelming majority votes for quality, so that's what I'll go with.
Also, in response to enpc's second paragraph, I've built a lot of decks similar to Saskia (Like Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas and Xenagod) but I didn't like them so much for some reason. I know dependence on the general was a major factor in my decision not to build Xenagod, and voltron is an archetype I'm not fond of. I tried a lot of decks but Saskia was the one that clicked...at least for now.

I used to run Smoke and Static Orb in my deck a long time ago because Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas has vigilance as well. Smoke isn't good enough to put back in, but I'd consider running Static Orb again. My problem is that my curve is so dang high it sets me way back
