Maralen of the Mornsong Discussion

MagicalHacker on Your guide to "Commanders"

Typically, a commander must be a legendary creature (except for the planeswalkers from that one commander set), but if your commander can search for another card, you can build your deck around that card instead.

So here are all the options for making noncommander cards into your commanders:

If the card you build around and get with one of these commanders, you might need your commander to find a card that can bring that card back to the battlefield, so use MagicalHacker - List of All Recursion Cards to make your noncommander available to you even after it goes to the graveyard.

Feel free to share your builds using these ideas here! I'm currently building Arcum Dagsson Lantern Control, and I might build some others too...

i can personally tell you from experience that Maralen of the Mornsong wont stay on the board. find a way to flash her in at their end step and then protect her. otherwise i love the deck and might try it!

So Im thinking of making a deck with a tutor in the command zone. Either Sidisi, Undead Vizier or Momir Vig, Simic Visionary unless someone else knows of a good non-Maralen of the Mornsong alternative.

Then I need to choose a card to build around... Sidisi limits me to black and artifacts but I could have fun building around Paradox Engine, Isochron Scepter, or even Necropotence.

Momir limits me to creatures but in better colors to protect my permanents.

Just start by saying love the idea. How many times have you playtested? Is it fun? I mean there is only one win condition and I'd be worried you would just get done by turn 3 or 4. Maralen of the Mornsong is a super easy target to kill. Would you consider Lightning Greaves?

One of my personal favorite locks in Rakdos colours.

MEAT_TORNADO: Maralen of the Mornsong is there as part of one of the many random combos - if Stranglehold is in play, and I drop her and use a wheel effect, opponents are effectively locked out of the rest of the game, while I tutor each turn. Based on the CMC's of the combo pieces and the total randomness of it, it happens very quickly and has to be dealt with immediately when the opportunity presents itself. That's her only purpose.

Maralen of the Mornsong seems bad due to the sheer amount of cards you'll be drawing.

Oh, yes... Bruna, the Fading Light has cast effect. Yeah. It is pointless to add her to Kaalia of the Vast decks.

You might be right. I will add Gisela, the Broken Blade and Archangel of Thune. But I don't know what shall I remove instead... Aurelia, the Warleader and Angelic Skirmisher ? Angelic Skirmisher gives me good sustain, but his ability will trigger next combat. He might not survive opponent's turn. And I must hard cast Aurelia, the Warleader, for her to be effective... Other way she probably won't survive until my next turn. And she is only 3/4. Yet I really like those cards and I think they are useful despite no ETB trigger. What do You think ?

I used to play Harvester of Souls, but still, he is very high CMC and if I can't cheat him in with Kaalia of the Vast I don't think he is reliable draw card. Indulgent Tormentor is great. He is relatively cheap and in Duel Commander might be a real threat. Either way - I draw a card for free or opponent loses 3 life out of 20.

Cycling draws are too risky for me. Yet Maralen of the Mornsong and Stranglehold is extremely tempting option.
