Reki, the History of Kamigawa Discussion

Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor on Advertise your COMMANDER deck!

Comment coming shortly xander11.

So I opened up a couple Mystery Booster packs and pulled a foil Reki, the History of Kamigawa. It got me thinking about all the mono-green legends that I love so much as cards, but never really wanted to build around. So basically I built a deck that lets me play all of those awesome legends!

Thanks for taking a look:



ShreddedByCrows on Offenza is the Best Defenza

Lots of subthemes you got there, that's some interesting challenge. All in all, you're running way too many high-costed cards for a Commander that generally revolves around more of an aggressive strategy. I'll further provide you a personalized list of adjustments, trying my best to keep it at the lowest budget as possible.

Very first thing, 37 lands is too much for an Anafenza deck imo. You can easily go down to 35/34 in order to feel more proactive. That being said, the mana base of your decklist is pretty unstable, and you'll need better mana rocks, around 5/6 good rocks should do it helping you stabilizing.

The second thing to bring up is that you play loads and loads of creatures with actually specific abilities that don't always combine altogether well. Like, for example, in which way would Slimefoot, the Stowaway help Anafenza, the Foremost being consistent? My answer, without another kind of appreciation than logic: not any single one. If you need cheap legendary to keep it up with your theme, there are better options, but remind that this was only a little example.

Finally, you lack reactivity because of very few instant/flash spells. It's not as necessary as some think, but still have a way to protect dutifully your creatures is a key for aggro/midrange decks in EDH. Being able to answer what your opponents bring up to the tape is moreover essential, and I don't see enough removals/tricks in there.

So, let's take a closer look from now on. I'll make some different categories starting with the cuts to make it easier to read.

1.) Back to 100 cards:

2.) Cheap Improvements:

2.1.) Mana Rocks:

2.2.) More removals:

Those are the classical ones you surely know. They are easily affordable and would give your deck a small lift at controlling the board state.

2.3.) Better Legendaries:

  • Mikaeus, the Lunarch > not the cheapest already, but really effective, almost a staple for your deck style

  • Hope of Ghirapur > underrated card, does a lot, insane with recursion to lock down a combo player at low cost

  • Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit > certainly a staple / and somewhat a reason to get rid of the token subtheme which is maybe a bit too much

  • Syr Faren, the Hengehammer > also certainly a staple / aggressive, good interactions with Anafenza, better than lords already in your deck

  • Kethis, the Hidden Hand > Yawgmoth's Will for legendaries? I'll take that. It could also be a nice alternative commander when you face more control-ish decks you're stuck against, enabling you to have an efficient late game on its own once made your commander.

  • Mangara of Corondor > Legendary creature which works as a nonsituational removal. Really good. Even if you can't always activate it when it hits the table, your opponents have to get rid of it using their hand resources and you make 1 for 1.

  • Masako the Humorless > Underplayed card / can be a game-changer / and it's a legendary creature.

2.4.) Voltron Outlet:

2.5.) Other cool cards to look at:

3.) Medium Budget Improvements:

3.1.) Mana Rocks:

3.2.) Even more removals:

3.3.) Legendaries' Staples:

3.4.) Neverending Voltron Outlet:

  • Konda's Banner > Yeh, it's a little bit expensive money speaking, but it does everything you're searching for, like a bridge between your Cats, your legends and your Voltron strategy.

  • Skullclamp > staple

3.5.) Cool cards:

4.) Expensive Improvements:

5.) Some other cards you could try (which I mostly haven't, or for which I have a doubt about their efficiency):

From your list, the following seem worth considering:

Aminatou, the Fateshifter is great with Thalia's Lancers.

Reki, the History of Kamigawa is a great draw engine.

Shanna, Sisay's Legacy is a flavour win, gives two colours for Sisay and is a protected beatstick. Another good multicoloured two drop is Lavinia, Azorius Renegade.

Legion's Landing  Flip and Oviya Pashiri aren't the best legends to imagine, but consider the following: In my Sisay list, I run Massacre Girl and Gerrard, Weatherlight Hero basically as a tutorable In Garruk's Wake. With the two token makers, this is even more consistent. Massacre girl usually only needs like one or two 1/1s on the board to kill everything.

Another legend to consider: Chainer, Nightmare Adept: Another reanimator that gives haste to any creatures tutored up with Sisay.

K1ngMars on Black Green or Sultai?

K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth is a much more "rush for the win" type of deck, but it's win it or lose it. If you'll always be playing such a deck in you new playgroup, you'll probably be always be kept in check by other players that will try to slow you down/interrupt you.

Tasigur, the Golden Fang is a way more resilient deck, since you get to use green for ramp and blue for card advantage. Tasigur's delve ability let's you exile useless cards from your graveyard, such that your opponents will be forced to choose between the "good" cards that still might be in your yard. Moreover, Tasigur's ability may be used politically with one opponent in order to team up against another opponent: "If you give me my Putrefy back, I'll get rid of that pesky Breya that's attempting to combo off"... Or similar, you got the point.

Reki, the History of Kamigawa is a good card in Legendary Tribal decks as one of the 99, but I probably won't pick him as a legendary tribal commander, as you're limiting yourself a lot in the possible card pool. One good commander for legendary tribal is Sisay, Weatherlight Captain. Moreover, trying to add on top of that an Infect subtheme without being able to run Blighted Agent, Inexorable Tide or Tainted Strike seems like a bad choice because, again, you're too limited in mono green to do that. One good commander for Infect is Saskia the Unyielding.

saj0219 on Selling some high(ish) end cards!

Hello everyone! I have some pretty excited cards to sell. I’m sad to part with them, but the truth is I haven’t played with them in ages, replacing a sewer line in the winter sucks, and replacing said sewer line in the winter while your family is buying holiday gifts left and right extra sucks! Anyway… my plumbing misfortune is your good fortune! All cards are selling below the lowest TCG price for comparable condition, and if you find it priced lower, I’ll happily adjust my pricing! Cards are near mint, except for the dual lands (which are played). Happy to supply pics of any cards you’re interested in, just message me! Shipping is covered in the cost - PWE for sales $30 and under, and I’ll track anything over $30 for free (if you want tracking under $30, we’ll sort that out), and I can take payment via PayPal. I’m planning to list these online Tuesday, so please let me know if you’re interested!

Cheers,

Sean

Seedborn Muse could be pretty fun with Sisay out.

Reki, the History of Kamigawa could help you draw some cards.

Urza's Ruinous Blast could be a pretty good boardwipe in this deck.
