Lorthos, the Tidemaker Discussion
2 weeks ago
you need 30 more cards to make it edh, have to be 100 count.
not a terrible start, but you need more instants to counter with and some mono blue staples like High Tide, futuresight, Arcanis the Omnipotent, Roil Elemental, Temporal Adept, Empress Galina, Isochron Scepter and such like that.
plus if you want to use so many big creatures, you might want like Caged Sun to get more mana, having so many big beater creatures is a little redundant though.... either Lorthos, the Tidemaker, or Artisan of Kozilek should win you the game by themselves.
you also probably want a Baral, Chief of Compliance to round out your creatures. maybe even as your Commander.
somewhere between 34-37 lands will get you done in a 100 card deck. have fun and keep slinging.

Some ideas from my deck: Lorthos, the Tidemaker, Empress Galina, Seasinger, Narwhal, Kraken of the Straits, Killer Whale, Dance of Many, Coral Barrier, Coastal Breach, Clinging Anemones, Coastal Piracy.

I'm thinking about replacing Trinket Mage, as it doesn't have enough targets here to be efficient.
Should I put a mana rock in its place or maybe another creature that I could flash in with Teferi's ability?
I've got a couple sphinxes (Sphinx of Magosi, Sphinx of Jwar Isle, Arbiter of the Ideal, Master of Predicaments), and some other big creature (Phyrexian Ingester, Stormsurge Kraken, Ixidron, Tromokratis, Lorthos, the Tidemaker; even some Eldrazi like Bane of Bala Ged, Artisan of Kozilek, It That Betrays) around; what do you think about this?

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.

I'd agree with the previous comments -- a good start. I'd try to include a few more win conditions, or at least some UW beaters who can hit the life total. Stormtide Leviathan, Dragonlord Ojutai, Lorthos, the Tidemaker, Inkwell Leviathan... just a couple creatures like these can be tough enough to disrupt that they can pull out a win for you. I'd maybe use the search function on tappedout to find UW, U, or W creatures that can get hexproof, especially, or at least have flying/trample/some other form of evasion. Avacyn, Guardian Angel would also be awesome for your Azor's Elocutors condition. Best of luck, and mention me in the comments if I can do anything else to help!

What about Lorthos, the Tidemaker? I've always liked him and he can shut games down fast.

Arnaud I really appreciate your suggestions! However, keep in mind this is a creature focused deck. Worldspine Wurm might seem bad, but this deck gets alot of mana, and casting it ensures I can play whatever nonland I might pull for free. And copying that creature with Rite of Replication on kicker and copied with Insidious Will (though I'm not running that anymore) for a total of 11 Worldspine Wurms might not be terribly efficient, but that's the kind of Timmy play I'm going for here! Same thing with Naya Soulbeast, in a multiplayer game it usually goes off, but I can always copy it for half the mana to get a second one. The Great Aurora is a good suggestion, but then I'd simply need to replace it with a better board wipe (which I won't do since this one is fun and almost always keeps me ahead while resetting the board) so I can't drop it as one of the four that need be dropped. Lorthos, the Tidemaker is another good suggestion, one that I'll really consider, but I do like the idea of having a mono blue power house creature.

which 4 cards should I drop?
--> i suggest to drop the biggest Converted mana cost (exept from the cards with alternate cost, obviously) :
Worldspine Wurm : cost too much and can never be played freely with Rashmi
The Great Aurora : in a mono green deck, this card is good, but there's better options with blue if you want to reset the board
Naya Soulbeast : maybe it's beacause i play duel but this card has never impressed me.
Lorthos, the Tidemaker : i LOVE this card, but... but... with Rasmi it's note really that effective because it prevents you to use your mana for casting a lot of spells. Lorthos is better when you have few cards in hand.
I hope my suggestions can help ;) don't hesitate to look at my latest decks (Odric and Tana/Thrasios) and give me yours ;)++
