TypicalTimmy on LGS has a Problem Player...what ...

I just thought of another potential solution:

If this guy insists on playing Tamanoa , who is an illegal Commander, why not go for broke and just have the group build non-legal Commander decks?

Then everyone is on the same level of sleezyness?

My vote goes to Maelstrom Archangel . Cheat ya big bois into play and take all the extra turns .

What I like about Jodah is that I also have a Jodah deck -- Jodah Has a Few Tricks Up His Sleeve -- that I think is kickass, but using the compare decks feature I see that there's a difference of ~55 cards. It's sweet that he facilitates such a wide variety of decks -- there's no single best way to build it. I run a much lower CMC list, there are some differences simply because I don't have the cards ( Avacyn, Angel of Hope , Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite , Emrakul, the Promised End , Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger ), and I see why you wouldn't want to play Omniscience and Show and Tell .

Anyways, here's a handful of the cards that I run and you don't that I've had good results with:

Splash white for Maelstrom Nexus and Maelstrom Archangel

power level is an ambiguous term in commander. Just try to match the power level of your play group as much as possible

Welcome to the best format imo. I've got a couple of tips for additions and cuts.

To start out, you'll want the new Kethis, the Hidden Hand . Great abilities for your deck. In commander, you also typically want board wipes, and the best one for this deck is Urza's Ruinous Blast . Primevals' Glorious Rebirth will help you get your grave back. Lastly, to help with your colors: Kodama's Reach , Cultivate , Rampant Growth , and Farseek will all help you out, as could Birds of Paradise .

Now for what I'd cut. Untaidake, the Cloud Keeper isn't as useful as it looks, just cause you're going to want to be sure you have all your colors. Time of Need is less useful than you'd think in this deck, because your commander searches legends, as does Captain Sisay . Combat tricks aren't usually helpful in commander unless you're running infect, so I'd cut Blessing of Belzenlok . Iwamori of the Open Fist will probably end up helping your opponents more than you. Eiganjo Castle is arguably worse than a plains, since it can't be fetched by cards like Cultivate , and preventing 2 damage won't matter that often. Sword of the Chosen just doesn't feel worth it to me. And I get why you're running Maelstrom Archangel , but it's not legendary so I wouldn't really bother.

If we wanna talk about creatures that don't belong in Ravnica btw, Maelstrom Archangel is extremely lost. LMAO.

For myriad:

Helm of the Host , Blade of Selves

For "colors matter" voltron:

Chromanticore , O-Kagachi, Vengeful Kami , Genju of the Realm , Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder , Maelstrom Wanderer , Maelstrom Archangel , Maelstrom Nexus

(note: the Maelstrom cards' oracle text does say "cast")

For win cons:

Simic Ascendancy , Mayael's Aria , Helix Pinnacle , etc

You can do anything with 5 colors! If you're going for chaos, look for asymmetrical combos that buff Ramos or leave you with huge card advantage.

Good luck!

Neato +1 from me

I really like the Honden cycle, Tatyova, Benthic Druid , Reki, the History of Kamigawa , Crackling Perimeter , and a lot of the new stuff like Guild Summit , Wilderness Reclamation and Plaza of Harmony

Nim Deathmantle seems out of place. It's because you're running a lot of boardwipes (so is everyone else); and hopefully you're going to have a lot of mana ?

No Tempt with Discovery ? It gets any land. I guess it's a little over costed unless you're in a big group game. I try to never give in to someone else's tempt ;)

What do you think about Bring to Light , Maelstrom Nexus , Maelstrom Archangel , Demonic Tutor , etc? They're not legendary but are good. Maybe Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder , Thrasios, Triton Hero and Azusa, Lost but Seeking to really drop some CA$H XD

Keep up the good work!
