Hey,

I like your deck. Didn't even know that Volrath the Fallen existed.

Some suggestions:

cuelix on Sidar Kondo: give them toys ...

Hey gang, first thread here so please feel free to provide any constructive criticism! Haven't been active in a forum for quite some time..

Anyways, I'm contemplating sort of an odd strategy to utilize Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa as a general. I'm considering Vial Smasher the Fierce or Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist as his partner. Right now it seems like black brings more to the table for this particular strategy and I love b/w removal options but it's possible there are things I've overlooked in blue, and Ludevic insentivizes the kind of thing I'm going for and gives me access to Edric, Spymaster of Trest for total craziness!

The main strategy of this deck would be to give my opponents little 1/1 and 2/2 tokens to hit each other with providing evasion with Kondo, maybe turn up the heat with goad and goad-like effects while trying to deter combat damage directed to myself with cards like Ghostly Prison, Sphere of Safety, Crawlspace, Dictate of Erebos, Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs, Mystic Barrier. You get the picture!

Mob Rule, Insurrection, Army of the Damned and Massacre Wurm are possible win conditions and Overseer of the Damned, Blood Artist, Soul Warden, Vicious Shadows, and Revel in Riches benefit from a carnage of etb and death triggers. I can also benefit from the Commander 2017 curses so that's something to consider as well!

What I feel I need the most help with is cards that put tokens into the battlefield under an opponent(s) control. They're definitely a corner case and it's not entirely easy to do a search for them either seeing how the wording varies quite a bit for cards that do this!

Some I've found are:

I'd also love to hear some interesting synergies if someone comes up with any! This will definitely be a casual deck so no suggestion is too outside of the box, please feel free!

Thank you!

P.S. ooooooh! I just discovered Mogg Infestation!!

Nice one, but I feel like you kinda went to heavy into the token strategy, because those don't trigger your Commanders abilty. That's why I think more creatures and less token producer would be helpful and adding some value.F.e. Drain: Blood Artist, Zulaport Cutthroat, etc.; Mana: Black Market, Revel in Riches (with an extra-cheeky win-con); Thiefery: Grave Betrayal; Card-Draw: Harvester of Souls Commander Boosting: Eternal Thirst If you really like tokens than you may include: Overseer of the Damned And maybe Necromantic Selection as an very good Wrath and even a finisher like Rise of the Dark Realms.I hope you still are interested in the deck and think that my suggestions are helpful.

Both picks sound very strong for the deck. I could replace Bloodline Keeper  Flip for Overseer of the Damned since I don't run only vampires. Probably rotate Join the Ranks for Anointed Procession for better value. Thank for the comment Draglord_Sim, your advice was very helpful.

How about Anointed Procession? Or maybe Overseer of the Damned, it 'combos' quite nicely with Teysa.

Mandalorian I have added everything but Graveblade Marauder, Ob Nixilis, Unshackled and Overseer of the Damned. What should remove for them ?
