Another way to dodge hate is also playing cards like True Believer so cards like Bog and Rakdos Charm can't touch you. Other than that is running cards like Riftsweeper and Pull from Eternity .

Or you can go the ultimate jank route and use cards like Lapse of Certainty ^^

Winterblast those cards are great counters to TLG, but (also IMMG54) i'm not much of a stax player, so I own about one of those cards. | DrukenReaps those commanders would be good if my goal was dealing specifically with TLG decks. No one in my meta is playing those, so what do I know? I haven't seen them in action. The weakness of my Omnath is removal. It's great at land plays and stompy things, but right now having a hard time finding the right removal cards and appropriate slots for them. Of course, let's not forget TLG has lots of blue, and plenty of countermagic to protect it. | SunsChampion I love Rakdos Charm for decks like TLG, Edgar, and all things tokeny, but can't seem to find the right commander in the right colors, though it feels like Nekusar is mentioned more and more in this thread. My only recourse is that there's already another player in the meta and I prefer to be unique. | DruneGrey Do you have a list? Maybe i'll be inspired to give her a hard look. I sure don't want to find myself playing blue solitaire. SynergyBuild I'll keep that in mind. I'm a career tinkerer, can never seem to find a single commander to commit to because of how easily I get discouraged when other decks shred mine. I'm currently running Omnath, Locus of Rage and Purphoros, God of the Forge as active decks. I took apart Meren of Clan Nel Toth because of how much hate it was getting from just sitting at the table, and i'm trying to theorize how to make a Tasigur, the Golden Fang deck to compete with my blue-heavy meta.

All that aside, the point of the thread was to ask folks if there are other commanders with win-power like TLG. Not necessarily blue infinite combos, but a commander with the ability to not only roast every player's life totals in a turn or two, but fill a board with flyers in the process.

If he has a ton of bugs but no sac outlets, a good ol Rakdos Charm should do the trick

Exile removal is a good idea too

Hey, this is a good start. Actually a really well made with the restriction of using most cards from only GRN and RNA, good job, nice Dark Depths :)

Budget cards that are currently in Standard mostly from DOM, GRN, RNA sets to consider adding:

For more upgrades you're going to however want to move away from just GRN and RNA cards, but this doesn't mean you have to spend a lot of money for upgrades. There's budget ($5 or less per card) upgrades you can make. I put a star (*) in front of the best upgrades of these suggestions.


Sac outlets:

Recurable creatures:

Repeatable value from sacing creatures:

Make Judith deadly:

Busted with Dark Depths:

Reanimate lots of creatures:


If you like some of these suggestions I can help you to make cuts.

Good luck with your deck.

Rakdos Charm feels like a good fit here, you don't really play creatures so "Each creature deals 1 damage to its controller." won't effect you and it can wipe a graveyard or kill an artifact... Otherwise this looks like a fun deck, perhaps a little heavy on 3 drops and light on 2 drops, but fun none the less.

A small aside on the meter, it's incredibly weighted to the lands you use, which in some ways makes a lot of sense. It's not a bad indication but it's better at defining how casual something is over how competitive.

Alright can definitely give you some ideas than Salinas29!

Since you are playing in large pods some cards that can definitely help you would be:

Now for the big creatures that can provide additional utility effects, here are some cards that can be considered:

Importantly as well is to have some early game plan, ramp, CA, and utility spells. Here are some cards that can be also considered.

The best route if you want to inflict a lot of pain is going for the big Eldrazis but I won't list them as they are quite expensive even after the reprint in UMA. If you can pick them up than definitely go for it! They are absolutely filthy creatures that would make people cry :3

Aside from that feel free to ask for any additional help, I love helping people tune their decks!

Low creature count allows you to punish value recursion and go wide decks. Play AEther Flash, Tainted AEther, Pyrohemia, etc.

Neheb, the Eternal and Cabal Coffers are notably missing for mana ramp.

If MLD is acceptable in your playgroup you could run a few and play them when you stick a strong enchantment like Revel in Riches or Black Market to pull ahead. In that case play ones that destroy everything but enchantments like Obliterate and Decree of Annihilation.

No grave hate which is a bit dangerous. Run at least a Nihil Spellbomb, Rakdos Charm, and Bojuka Bog.

Fervor and Goblin Assault aren't doing much for you in a control shell. I could see the need for a token producer if you were playing Smokestack and friends but on your current build it only creates a suicide grunt.

If you want to pursue the discard route I suggest Oppression, Painful Quandary, and Words of Waste, Waste Not, and Myojin of Night's Reach. If you're going for reanimator I'd suggest Anvil of Bogardan as well to get the plays going faster.

Seeing as you have 5 colours to play with you might as well run the best multicoloured cards:

Ramp: Mirari's Wake, Land Tax (1 mana card that draws you 3-6 cards is nothing to scoff at, even if they're lands), Carpet of Flowers, Mox Amber, Grand Warlord Radha

Card Advantage: Rhystic Study, Huatli, Radiant Champion

Tutors: Buried Alive

Removal: Aura Shards, Bant Charm (amazingly versatile), Decimate (iffy but playing a 4-for-1 on your opponent feels really good), Swan Song, Sudden Spoiling, Toxic Deluge, Rakdos Charm, Chaos Warp, Cyclonic Rift, Shivan Harvest

Grave Recursion: Muldrotha, the Gravetide, Reanimate

Value: Anger, Heroic Intervention, Sensei's Divining Top, Eerie Interlude, Panharmonicon, Isochron Scepter

In my playgroup this deck would not get very far unfortatunately because Ruination, Back to Basics, and Shivan Harvest are played quite often to gobble up greedy land bases.
