Suns_Champion on Will there Ever Be a ...

With the exception of Pang Tong, "Young Phoenix" (lol) and a single activated ability, every pheonix in MTG is red with red abilities, so a multicolor legendary pheonix adds nothing for in tribal sense.

Also, lore wise and traditionally, pheonix are born from the ashes of a previous pheonix, so there’s very little room for a “zombie-pheonix” or a “anything-pheonix.”

I’d be all for a legendary pheonix. It should be mono red, and just a pheonix though. Why do other colors or tribes need in on something special and unique to red?

Mornignman Pang Tong, "Young Phoenix" targets only one creature, therefore it would fit better in a Voltron Deck. But if you like it you should play it!

Annexus Freed from the Real is already mentioned in the "Other Cards" Tab in the primer, together with two other cards which do the same. Thanks for mentioning though!

Happy Birthday To me!

What makes an Unplayable commander?

I'm using EDHREC'S list of Unplayable commander's. They are commander's that have less then three decks on tapped out, you can find the list here.

How does this work?

I'll randomly select a commander. I'll build the rough skeleton. You send me suggestions for weird cards for it. And we'll cut it down and ship it. Let's put the minds of the internet to the test

Why would you build around (Insert bad commander) when you could play (Insert better commander in the same archetype or colors) instead, what's the point?

First off the object should not be to just build good stuff with X. If we're building Rohgahh of Kher Keep we aren't building R/B good stuff. We're building around Rohgahh of Kher Keep. Weird drawbacks and neat side effects and all.

Because if you limit yourself to just the best deck of their colors, you limit yourself to 30 decks in the entirety of the format (Mono color, guilds, shards ect), But the great thing about commander is that there are hundreds of ways to build around one commander. I can build Zedruu the Greathearted as a prison deck, a evil santa deck, a group hug deck, Heck I could build voltron Zedruu, Sky's the limit.

So instead of simply looking at the cards and seeing what they aren't, let's look and see what they bring to the table. No matter how bad it looks. No matter how weird it is.

Plus it'll be a lot of fun.

TLDR; What's the deck already

Pang Tong, "Young Phoenix"

Another Mono White Commander??

Heh.

Hehe.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Goes on murderous Rampage

Comes back after drinking a cup of tea

You know? I'm kinda sick of Mono white. Let's do something else.

Well they came out with the new commander set. I'm sure there is at least a couple of unplayable commanders.

Hmmmmmmmmm. What's the wheel of randomness say?

Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder

Okay, let's build around Our Heavy metal Herder.

"OBJECTION! Bruse Tarl is not an Unplayable commander

Au contraire! EDHREC does say that Bruse Tarl has 44 decks buuuuuuuuut if you scroll down, you find all these partner combination that have stone zero decks built around them.

So let's take a look. EDHREC defines unplayable commanders as 3 decks or less so that leaves our partners as......

Ravos, Soultender, Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa Thrasios, Triton Hero, Tymna the Weaver Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist, Silas Renn, Seeker Adept, and Vial Smasher the Fierce.

Oy vey.

So this is how I've decided to tackle this. Let's start with cards that work well with Bruse in general. Say 40 cards. Then we can come up with cards that overlap with the various commander. Then I'll build the individual lists. Also I won't make a base deck this time so just comment here!

As always any Suggestions for the deck, feedback, Liking and spreadage of the word is great appreciated!

Here's the previous decks if you wanna stroll the Asylum. Ranked for best to worst.

Gallowbraid: Because if you laugh you die

Kentaro, the Smiling Cat: Kentaro the Smiling troll

Yuan Shao, the Indecisive: Yuan Shao the menacer

Chandler: Chandler's list

Kodama of the Center Tree:Spetral Trees

Lu Su, Wu Advisor: Lu shu, Scooby doo

Ur-Drago:Ur Drago of the Ur dragon clan

Nagao, Bound by Honor:Samurai are cool right?

Liu Bei, Lord of Shu: Liu bei, the trilogy maker

Almost got it in three hours, I'm only like 20 minutes late.

Assuming a 6 tier system:

To be moved from T5 to T6: (Rationale: french-vanilla, overcosted with no pay-off, or just vitually no effect on the game.)

(I left out Ramirez DePietro because I just didn't have the heart to be the one to demote him. I mean, come on, he's a pirate. Pirates should get their own tier...)

Moved from T4 to T5: (Rationale: mediocre voltron stats w/ limited defensive or evasion abilities, effects that don't have a strong effect on the game.)

Moved from T4 to T6: (Rationale: a combination of the last two. These guys really didn't belong in T4 in the first place.)

Guan Yu, Sainted Warrior, Hakim, Loreweaver, Hikari, Twilight Guardian, Kodama of the Center Tree, Kuro, Pitlord, Kongming, "Sleeping Dragon", Maga, Traitor to Mortals, Mannichi, the Fevered Dream, Meng Huo, Barbarian King, Nagao, Bound by Honor, Obzedat, Ghost Council, Patron of the Nezumi, Patron of the Kitsune, Tivadar of Thorn, Zhang He, Wei General, Zuo Ci, the Mocking Sage.

Moved from T3 to T4: (Rationale: Just basing this off of my experience with the commanders and the synergies available to them. Trying to split into Good Tier and Average Tier. Priorities for Good Tier: commanders that have built in methods of dodging removal and disruption (e.g. Thrun, the Last Troll), and commanders who's strategies quick swing the board out of proportion if left unchecked (e.g. Rakdos, Lord of Riots).)
