Kemba, Kha Regent Discussion

Lexcorp on Cat deck

You could add in a Jareth, Leonine Titan and a Kemba, Kha Regent, though it might be difficult to work in. Also, this deck is going to have a major problem if it ever plays a flyer-heavy deck, considering that it has not fliers and its only creature with reach has a toughness of 3. However, you could run a few equipment cards that give your creatures flying, such as Cobbled Wings, which would also work nicely with Kemba, Kha Regent.

PookandPie on Selvala's got an impressive toolkit...

Grand Abolisher is an excellent type of good stuff creature. It's Dragonlord Dramoka except it comes down way earlier, which is worth a slot if you have a lot of control decks/blue in your meta. I'd drop Qasali Ambusher for Abolisher as Ambusher is really just a 2/3 blocker with a brief, "Surprise" factor that is almost immediately going to be overshadowed by threats on turns 4-6 (that Ambusher isn't anything in the face of a Ghave, Guru of Spores, Meren with sac support, Mazirek with a sac outlet, etc., so even if it surprise blocks one thing, you would have been better off running removal to get rid of the threat anyway).

Cultivator's Caravan seems mediocre. A Birds of Paradise does its job better as it comes out t1 and enables t2 Selvala, while Caravan has a higher cost because, if crewed, it has a bigger body. A 5/5 body doesn't really go that far in Commander since it's a 40 life format, though, so I'd say drop it for Birds to shore up your early turns.

Pilgrim's Eye just seems worse than using Farhaven Elf. Putting the land directly into play to ramp you seems better than being able to chump the occasional flying creature. If you can't tell, I think that chumping flying creatures is kind of weak when you could the creature, lol.

If you're running Tolismir Wolfblood, I see little reason to avoid Wilt-Leaf Liege.

Brave the Sands seems like a mediocre use of a card slot. Heliod, God of the Sun gives vigilance, a body, indestructible, and can generate tokens for 2 more mana. Being able to block an extra creature is nice, but that doesn't help against trampling, etc., creatures at all (so that card won't even remotely save you from a Craterhoof Behemoth, Overrun, etc., hail Mary), so I don't find running Sands worthwhile.

I see no reason to not be running Swords to Plowshares. You run things with reach, etc., to chump block flying creatures, which seems backwards when you could just exile them and get rid of the problem altogether. Or add a Maze of Ith or Kor Haven to your mana base, and suddenly any one thing that swings at you that you don't like isn't an issue so long as you keep mana up for them.

Some of your, "Just in case" cards are super narrow. Discarding shouldn't be an issue for you since you run so much graveyard recursion, so Library of Leng probably shouldn't be in here even if you have a meta game of Chainer and Meren + Mindslicer. Melira is extremely silly to run with no Persist creatures + sac outlets or anything to abuse her abilities, as running powerful, low cost removal would let you beat Infect decks without running such narrow cards that do absolutely nothing unless against Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon or Scion of the Ur-Dragon deck (and let's be real: Each of those decks would kill Melira and then gun straight for you due to running hate for them. Great way to turn games into Archenemy, I feel). Gaea's Blessing is another card that seems super narrow. You have Ulamog and Primal Command, both, to help against being milled out (which, that's not really why I'd use Command as tutor a creature + bounce a thing seems way better, but whatever, you don't have many tutors and that's better than nothing). You have enough recursion in other cards, and you don't run enough tutors that shuffling cards back into your library is even remotely powerful, so I see no need for Gaea's Blessing to take up a slot when you have options that can help you stay in a game.

Those above slots could easily become Swords to Plowshares, Path to Exile, and Beast Within, to help you more adequately against opponent's attacking threats. Opponent trying to equip a Kemba, Kha Regent with Sword of Light and Shadow and Sword of Feast and Famine? No big deal, exile Kemba with the equip activations on the stack, so you don't get beat down by the Angry Cat Lady. Skittles swinging at you for lethal off of a Hatred and haste activation? Again, no big deal, looks like someone replaced that guy's Commander with a 3/3 beast token when he wasn't looking.

Anyway, that's all I got. Have fun.

Since you want to go for an equipment type strategy here are most of the really good equipments/equip matters cards you could use: Godsend Stoneforge Mystic Kemba, Kha Regent Leonin Shikari Auriok Steelshaper Moonsilver Spear Umezawa's Jitte and finally the Kaldra cycle of equipments Helm of Kaldra Sword of Kaldra Shield of Kaldra

So, I see a ton of great cards in here, but I think you need a focus, ya know? If you want to go full control, or full equipment, or tokens, or angel tribal, or lifegain, or whatever, do it! Just don't try all of them at once. Pick one or two I'd say.

Either way, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben probably isn't the right commander. Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite + tokens for an alpha strike win deck, Kemba, Kha Regent for tokens/equipment, Eight-and-a-Half-Tails for control. I'm not sure which is best for a competitive commander, but whichever strategy you like most is probably your best bet.

As for some random card suggestions: Elspeth, Sun's Champion(great token generator/boardwipe), Conqueror's Flail(grand Abolisher as an equipement),Well of Lost Dreams(insane in a lifegain deck), Blind Obedience, Mana Tithe, Lapse of Certainty(control).

sonnet666 on [List - Multiplayer] EDH Generals by Tier

I've been very distracted about my newfound responsibilities here I'm just going to go up the list a little:

RivenVII, Fixed Narset link, and I'm not sure what list you're looking at, but Garta's list doesn't mention anything about partial paris in the description. The opposite, actually.

Anyway, I'm keeping his list because I like his primer and how Approach of the Second Sun streamlines the deck's win condition and his explanation of how it's used.

merrowMania, Ohthenoises, Lilbrudder, & chaosumbreon87: Moved Circu, Dimir Lobotomist to T3 and added chaosumbreon87's deck in the description. His synergy with Dramatic Scepter is pretty clear cut, and chaosumbreon87's list looks good enough to have up for now. (Although, I recommend shifting the mana base more toward blue, my playtests were giving me too many swamps I didn't need with the even split you have right now. Also Time Spiral?)

BestKeptSecret, If you think your Sram list is competitive you could link it here if you want. Our current list doesn't run Alhammarret's Archive, and personally I think that's an oversight.

Ohthenoises, I don't think Ramunap is going to effect Titania that much since Crucible was never really a plan A for the deck, but it's definitely going to be a good addition.

Also, I'm pretty sure that I'm the only one who's posted a Titania list here, so I'll probably figure out where Ramuna goes and put that up soon. (I've also discovered some interesting combo potential with her and Drownyard Temple recently, which could be cool.)

Scyxx, The Commander 2017 legends have not been added to the site yet because they were leaks. When they're added they'll go on here. EVERYBODY ELSE: Remind me what placement was agreed on for them. I was thinking:

  • Wasitora - T3
  • O-Kagachi - T3
  • Ur-Dragon - T4
  • Ramos - T2.5 (? - There was a lot of discussion on him, did anyone come up with anything solid?)
  • Taigam - T2.5 (We need to come up with something here too.)

Ohthenoises: Phenax has actually been a pet project of mine for a while now. I'm convinced that he could make an excellent combo deck that uses self-mill & the yard to see pieces more consistently. Haven't really got it off the ground though. As to your question, most Phenax decks run Undead Alchemist and Altar of the Brood already since they combo with other cards.

Hi Brewstorm! I really like your Arcanis list. It's seems straightforward and powerful. I've added it to the description since TheDevicer seems to have taken his list private or deleted it. (No offense meant TheDevicer! Unfortunately, I never got a chance to view your Arcanis deck, so right now I don't have anything to compare to. If you feel your deck still deserves a shot, then you can feel free to resubmit.)

HezTheGod, Though I think your deck looks just like every other Izzet storm deck ever, it's easy to see how Mindmoil in the command zone is helpful in the archetype. Moved Arjun to T3, added your deck to the description.

ajacobik, There's been a lot of talk about Erebos in cEDH lately. I know there's a good deck up on Reddit. I gotta say, having played against a friend's Erebos deck extensively, I'm little skeptical, but I'm aware he's gaining popularity and he might move up.

SIDBJJ, That list looks very good. I'll throw it up on List of Partner Pairs by Tier. I do think you have room to keep improving though, n0bunga was giving good advice about colored mana combos, Grand Architect and Pili-Pala are a creature and an artifact creature, which gives you much better reception to blue/green's tutor profile. Also, I'm not too sold on Tooth and Nail into Deadeye even with Kydele's ramp, that combo tends to be outmoded nowadays in cEDH. You're definitely off to a great start though, so keep at it. I don't think too many other people are brewing Thrasios/Kydele right now.

chaosumbreon87, Added your Kefnet list. The others didn't really stand out to me (or are too soon to call like Ramos and Taigam). Left you some comments on the other ones.

Other changes:

So long as there are no objections I'm going to make some changes that I've been harping on since forever:

I'd also like peoples opinions on whether the following commanders that were demoted to T3 before the advent of .5 tiers should be given the opportunity to move to T2.5:

Another thing I'd like people's opinions on: promoting Savra, Queen of the Golgari to T3. After playtesting this deck: Hapatra Vizier of Apostles, by HarroHunter I was pleasantly surprised to see how fast and efficient Thrumming Stone+Shadowborn Apostle could be in EDH, especially with one or two other G/B combos to back it up. As I told HarroHunter, I didn't think the deck had enough to do with Hapetra to be representative of her, but I do think the list itself has merit, and it seemed to me like the most logical G/B commander to run it would be Savra, as she'd give you scaleable creature sweep with the Apostles. What does everybody think? With this list in mind, could Savra move up?

Last thing that's been brought up is the possibility of a name change to make the title of this list more coherent. Would anyone be bothered if I changed this list's name from "[List - Multiplayer] EDH Generals by Tier" to "List of All Commanders in Multiplayer by Tier" ?

This is only about half of what I planned on addressing, but Imma take a break now since this comment is really long and I'm losing my mind.

Is there a reason you didn't include Emeria, The Sky Ruin?

Also, is Raksha Golden Cub above the Mana curve you want to maintain?

Leonin Shikari is fun for loading up Kemba, Kha Regent before upkeep and redistribute after your upkeep as needed if Puresteel Paladin is metal crafting.

Kemba, Kha Regent is a possibility for token making but you'd likely want some more equipment to consider her.

how about Soul Foundry?
