Prossh, Skyraider of Kher

Sacrifice another creature: Prossh gets +1/+0 until end of turn.

Prossh, Skyraider of Kher Discussion

Hey The_Raven_Guy, What're my thoughts on The First Sliver ? Well, it's an amazing addition to Slivers as a tribe, and adds a whole new dimension of deck construction by giving a viable cEDH Sliver commander. Specifically, this would be an excellent alternative food chain commander outside of Prossh, Skyraider of Kher and General Tazri . One particular list I'm a fan of is ShaperSavant's Food Chain Sliver cEDH build. I don't think it will ever overshadow Prossh , but it definitely outshines General Tazri as you aren't dependent on an outlet ( Kalastria Healer , Hagra Diabolist , or Halimar Excavator ) to win the game. With First you simply cast your whole deck and win with something...almost anything really. It offers more variety with your wincon selection.
Outside of cEDH, First is just plain fun. With a Sliver tribal deck (such as mine) you can simply flood the board with permanents, and turn a relatively bare battlefield on turn 5 to something that looks like you're on turn 9 or 10. In this deck, First took the slot of Dormant Sliver - who in my opinion is woefully underrated. Going from to isn't quite the best feeling...but in the long run I think is worth the sacrifice.

cdkime Prossh, Skyraider of Kher originally abused Food Chain as mana dorks ramp you into foodchain and then chain up to recasting prossh for infinite mana/etbs. But recently cedh seems to be mostly pushing 5c and partners.

I would recommend against most of the suggestions presented above, for the following reasons:
Ezuri, Renegade Leader / Krenko, Mob Boss - tribal strategies are pretty easy to pick up, but very limited in what they do. If she does not like the tribe or the very linear, go wide and swing playstyle, that's going to dissuade her from playing the game.
The Theros Gods are pretty hit-or-miss. You'll want to avoid the mono-coloured gods, since you want to provide as much diversity of play as possible so she can start to learn what type of deck she enjoys. Kruphix, God of Horizons might be a good choice--decent colours and an ability that fits well in a couple different types of playstyle.
Prossh, Skyraider of Kher can probably be fine, but, based on the limited information provided, R/B does not seem like her colours.
Isamaru, Hound of Konda and other Voltron commanders tend to be a bit linear.
My recommendation would be to get a couple of the precon decks, as they tend to be similar in power level to one another, and tend to be diverse enough to be enjoyable, without being too complex.
Baring that, consider building your own decks that are at the precon power level (i.e. not that optimized, so they produce longer games where new players can experience a plethora of different interactions). It's pretty easy to take a couple random Legends you already have sitting about and combine it with bulk to build a precon-level deck with little-to-no additional investment.
This will leave you with a bunch of different decks, so she has several options and can learn what type of playstyle she enjoys. The decks themselves might not be great, but I've found diversity and playing against similarly-powered decks is more important than optimization to a new player.

I was getting pretty upset last week, when I saw God-Eternal Kefnet and Jace, Wielder of Mysteries then I saw the Leonin Relic-Warder + Animate Dead , I abuse him with Oblivion Ring in other decks, Brago, the Banisher $50 EDH with Reveillark and Alesha, Boros' Crusade $50 EDH with Fiend Hunter , but this one BLEW my mind, it's so simple, good on it's own, and doesn't need any off-synergy cards!
Sounds like your having great success with this type of build! When T2-T4 good ol' Buried Alive is the back-up plan, in pretty good shape. He's the Master of Cruelties should never show mercy! If they winning on T7 that's pretty good too, no fun in dragging the game out past T5!
Agreed Hatred is just too much of a life commitment, even when casting it on a Lifelink creature, the initial burden of life is too much, Leonin Relic-Warder is far more value as an alternative win-con! I always find it strange that people fear Kaalia of the Vast , sit down at table with Kess, Dissident Mage , Prossh, Skyraider of Kher , and Derevi, Empyrial Tactician , it's wrong evaluation that Kaalia of the Vast is the highest threat, even if I resolve a Avacyn, Angel of Hope early.
Sneak Attack doesn't get me a Buried Alive so it's not as useful, in many cases (without a Razaketh, the Foulblooded or Rune-Scarred Demon ) for example. Sneak Attack needs other synergistic cards to be truly effective (unless you have a Razaketh, the Foulblooded )

Okay. Well with control and aristocrats I can do some work.
Okay so for aristocrats, Meren of Clan Nel Toth is obviously the “tierest” of them all. But for more casual folks like me there are good options too. Queen Marchesa , Sedris, the Traitor King , Prossh, Skyraider of Kher , Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper , Karador, Ghost Chieftain , Ghave, Guru of Spores , some other guy + Ravos, Soultender (my pick goes to Reyhan, Last of the Abzan ), and as was pointed out prior, Teysa Karlov (along with the many other good aristocrat legends in those colors- my Teysa deck runs 7 potential commanders), but if you want something a lil more out there, Judith, the Scourge Diva , Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker , or a few listed up there (especially the grixis picks) will do ya well.
Now for control? I play this deck with Karlov of the Ghost Council that SLAPS- it basically just puts “drops in the bucket”, casting a bunch of permanents that gain consistent, small bundles of life, and basically exiles anything of consequence that an opponent plays.
Sedris, the Traitor King could actually be a really fun sort of “2-for-1.deck”, focusing on getting a lot of value out of the cards in your grave? Good blockers with death triggers that you can recur, flashback spells, self-mill? Though I suppose that could be said for a few of the above aristocrat generals...
Maybe an aristocrat deck that focuses on wasting enemies’ resources until they peter out? Seems kinda fun in Abzan, Grixis, ... maybe a four-color combo?
