Ravos, Soultender Discussion

scotchtapedsleeves on Time to only help myself (Please Help)

2 days ago

So the first thing is, your deck is too slow, mainly because of the seven planeswalkers and the low amount of creatures. This type of deck should be geared towards a high amount of creatures and spells to buff them. I also wouldn't recommend Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker as a commander for this, because he only buffs himself. If you enjoy the aggro theme with Ravos, Soultender, then I'd suggest switching Ishai with Tymna the Weaver or Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper. Sadly, blue doesn't really work with strategies relevant to spamming creatures, so Ishai is probably out of the question.

As for your planeswalkers, you should really only need 1-3 in a deck, so if you go on with replacing Ishai, then you will have to take out Dovin Baan, Jace, Unraveler of Secrets. I'd also take out Sorin, Grim Nemesis, and Elspeth, Sun's Champion.

For your creatures, I'd look to add more anthem creatures, like Ravos, Soultender's +1/+1 effect.

Good luck decking!

ThermalMeerkat That is the commander I started off with actually after deciding to drop blue. She could be devastating on occasion but she doesn't directly help the deck. Ravos, Soultender + would be better for the reanimation and small buff for the 1/1 enragers.

Black adds some great cards like Pestilence and Pestilence Demon but adds more than enough burn on all sorts of sources that it isn't needed. You would get Soul Link and High Priest of Penance which are pretty awesome.

I find it to be really nice to use marath to activate enrage and I'm probably going to reduce my activators because of him and add more enragers. The only thing better than him is hitting all the things at once with Pyrohemia or similar.

Thank you chadsansing!

I have tried out Ravos, Soultender together with Silas Renn, Seeker Adept and I kinda like your suggestion better as I don't have many artifacts for Silas to bring back. The counter that Ertai offers is very nice though as I often have many tokens to sacrifice. Being able to block multiple creatures does sound good with the tokens, so I might run Brave the Sands instead as I have a few copies of that one already, but Reconnaissance does seem like a good addition to let some tokens get through and not sacrificing a bunch to big blockers.

I do like those sorceries too. they would really allow me to ignore board wipes more.

My mana base does feel quite off considering how few white spells I do have, and how many double black symbols there are. I'll try to speed it up a bit and go for more basics, optionally running Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth =)

Thanks again for the Feedback!

Interesting to see an Esper zombies deck :)

You can remove Ertai from your creature list since it is your commander. Or, if you'd like Ertai in the 99 and to have a different Esper commander (instead of a UB one), maybe try Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker + Ravos, Soultender or just park Oloro, Ageless Ascetic in the Command Zone.

Patriarch's Bidding might offer some value here, as well as Rise of the Dark Realms.

Since you make so many tokens, it might also be worth running High Ground + Reconnaissance, which is broken for blocking.

Finally, consider rebalancing your mana to run more B sources and fewer U and W ones. Perhaps replace all your tap-lands with Swamps.

Happy brewing!

DrukenReaps on Kumena or Derevi for Merfolk ...

You should build for fun and since you like the lorwyn guys derevi isn't a bad choice.

Another thought you could do is Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa and Thrasios, Triton Hero since that gives you a merfolk in the command zone gives you your colors and Sidar works with merfolk pretty well.

If you wanted to add black since merfolk have some black Thrasios also works with Tymna the Weaver or Ravos, Soultender.

Personally of the options you gave I would lean towards Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca for consistency.

MagmaArmor0 on Advertise your COMMANDER deck!

You may need a bigger calculator for this deck: Thrasios, Triton Hero and Ravos, Soultender team up to make some very, very big (but not infinite!) numbers.

I'm mostly looking for advice on how to streamline the deck without ruining any of the super-awesome-huge-mega-choclately-fun combo, particularly when it comes to creatures that work well with Ravos. But general advice is appreciated too!

enpc on Reanimators?

1 month ago

If you want access to black and fast reanimation, why not run Ravos, Soultender + Tana, the Bloodsower as your commander. Then you also have a graveyard recursion effect in the command zone.

Slim_Brady on Thrasios, Triton Hero and Ravos, Soultender

First of all, thank you both for the feedback on this, and ClearSkyFriday, I think that I am going to switch commanders and incorporate green into my deck. Now, ShiningSpear, I saw that Thrasios, Triton Hero, Ravos, Soultender, and Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa all have the partner ability, what would be the best combo out of the three?
