Kambal, Consul of Allocation Discussion

The tokens from Seraphic Greatsword don't exile at the end, in case anyone else had Geist of Saint Traft in mind.

Sphinx of the Second Sun is neat but overcosted

Liesa, Shroud of Dusk faces stiff competition from Kambal, Consul of Allocation imo

Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts is my favorite version of Teysa, but she is nowhere near as popular as her other two incarnations, so I am very glad to see a deck with her as the general, so I shall definitely upvote this deck.

Given that gaining life is a major theme of this deck, have you considered cards such as Exquisite Blood, Defiant Bloodlord, Kambal, Consul of Allocation, or Vizkopa Guildmage? I am certain that they would all be great for this deck.

I used to have a Kambal, Consul of Allocation deck a while ago. I loved it but I hated how a built it. I turned a lot of the cards into a Teysa Karlov deck. But, I've found that I really miss the way Kambal played. So I'm toying around with a new list and I've just finalized the 1.0 version of this remade deck. Check it out if you'd like

Santiago1011 , I have literally spent the last several days brewing nearly the same deck. I went to check out what other Kambal, Consul of Allocation decks there was and yours was the first I saw. I love your deck!

Ysura on [Duel Commander] Help to upgrade …

Hello all,

I am looking to improve the Ruthless Regiment deck, whose main commander is Jirina Koudro.

For the game plan: human tribal, mardu, aggro aggressive (creatures that can be launched quickly and evolve) and with some midrange effects.

I've already tried several games with Silvar, Devourer of the Free in command, but it didn't do me any more.

Where I'm having the most trouble is identifying which cards to remove and which to add to the counterpart.

My budget to start all these modifications is about $50 and i will make it evolve later.

I've identified a few cards that I like:

I also heard about the combo with these cards:

Thank you all

Valengeta I think I got it fixed pretty well. Replace Smothering Tithe with Kambal, Consul of Allocation, Authority of the Consuls, or Land Tax if playing in a 1v1 otherwise keep it for multi-player. Take out Crypt Incursion and replace it with whatever if need be, though I think it works well against most decks, especially since I have Day of Judgment and Wrath of God. Could swap some stuff out if I needed to like Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant  Flip but I think overall it's a lot better. Could use some more utility lands if I want though I don't its super necessary. I would put it as modern but Dark Ritual isn't modern legal and there's no real good replacement for it so I think I'll leave it as legacy for now. I'd love too hear about what you think! Thank you for all the suggestions, it really helped a lot!

KuzcosPoison on Orah Aristocrats Combo

Looks like a cool deck, Orah seems like the commander clerics has been looking for for a long time. Combos are interesting, would suggest leaning into a couple of the more concise ones while cutting out any cards that would be dead outside of them like Shuriken. Also your lifegain combos become much more deadly with a Sanguine Bond or Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose so would recommend those along with a Blood Artist type effect or two. Celestial Gatekeeper seems like an odd choice, not sure if it's worth. If you want the body then Butcher is very good but I find that Martyr's Bond does a lot of work for aristocrats. Also Burnt Offering is fun ramp but Culling the Weak might be better value since there's not a ton of creatures above 5 mana in there. This is definitely a meta call too but with undying combos and Mikeaus in there, a Solemnity might be worth along with some light lifegain tax like Kambal, Consul of Allocation. Anyway, hope that helps
