ShatteredEmpires on A Tribute to the Five Colors

Hello Woiteck. I've thought about the spirit dragons, as Kokusho, the Evening Star and the rest of the cycle are actually pretty decent. 5/5 flying creatures with various death triggers aren't bad. However, I don't have a reliable way of saccing the dragons and only Sheoldred and Beacon to get them back, making the cycle less valuable compared to things like the Gearhulks or Bringers.

The Myojins were another cycle that I considered, except that I really don't like the land destruction on the red one. I'm not a fan of Mass Land Destruction. The green one wouldn't get as much use either as I don't put a ton of creatures into hand. Still an interesting cycle though.

Since you play all-colour tribal, what about Myojins? E.g. Myojin of Cleansing Fire. Those are quite popular with Jodah. Or maybe the spirit dragons from Kamigawa. Kokusho, the Evening Star etc.

Amyas, great suggestions! I especially like the Progenitor Mimic with Kokusho, the Evening Star. I just mean enough where my friends can complain, but it's not crazy.

I like it! Perhaps Lazav, Dimir Mastermind in the 99?

Also since you are already running Progenitor Mimic consider Gray Merchant of Asphodel / Kokusho, the Evening Star. I have won a few games via pairing them and protecting them with counter magic. The AoE drain pads your life total while it slowly melts the table away,

Defense of the Heart has won me multiple games from grabing Gray Merchant of Asphodel or Kokusho, the Evening Star with Progenitor Mimic. The AoE drain closes game and grants huge life gain padding.

I love Sultai as a color combo, mine has been deck teched over and over with 3 different commanders. When this guy came out I made the swap and am loving it.

I really enjoy pairing Progenitor Mimic on Grey Merchant of Asphodel or Kokusho, the Evening Star.

Also the Sagas are really neat.
