Rona, Disciple of Gix Discussion
1 month ago
Anybody still interested? Maybe the Yidris CHAOS deck is not CHAOS enough, & should be more Library Manipulation as the overall theme? Is my Omnath Anti-Conformity from deck worth it, or not? Is Sevinne's approach to Flashback, Mass Burn Wrath, & protection not good enough? If so, why? & what would you build Rona, Disciple of Gix around as a CMDR?
This is important as I just wanted not just advice, but also constructive criticism.
Please respond soon, guys.

Please link all cards in your question using double brackets so that people know what cards do.
Rona, Disciple of Gix has what are known as "linked abilities". The cards you are allowed to play via the second ability are only the cards exiled by the first. You will not be able to cast cards that you exiled via The Mimeoplasm 's ability to your Rona copy's second ability.
607.1. An object may have two abilities printed on it such that one of them causes actions to be taken or objects or players to be affected and the other one directly refers to those actions, objects, or players. If so, these two abilities are linked: the second refers only to actions that were taken or objects or players that were affected by the first, and not by any other ability.

First of all, great list! I have been thinking about building around this commander myself for quite some time now as I found this list on Reddit. You were asking for critique/suggestions so here we go:
The new land Field of the Dead seems like a great utility land for this deck, essentially turning all your infinite mana combos also into infinite creatures. It also seems like a solid target to blink for value.
Animate Dead but neither Dance of the Dead nor Necromancy ? If you don't want that many recurion spells I personally would opt to run Necromancy . It costs 1 mana more than Animate Dead , but it can be played at instant speed, if needed.
I know, it's a bit boring, but how about Rhystic Study ? Also maybe Smothering Tithe ?
Propaganda but no Ghostly Prison ?
Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver seems way less optimal than the new Ashiok . He also can infinitely mill your opponents, while providing graveyard hate instead of a mediocre creature steal ability.
Dark Confidant is a great card overall, but I wonder why he is in this deck specifically. He is the only creature in the deck that has no synergy with flickering.
Rona, Disciple of Gix seems very inefficient to me.
I get that you only play the Singets and Talismans that make blue mana, but the deck has only very few ramp pieces (I count 7), so I think Orzhov Signet and Talisman of Hierarchy would be great inclusions. Also have you considered cards like Mana Vault ?
No Path to Exile ?
Disenchant seems out of place. I would replace it with something like Leonin Relic-Warder .
Eerie Interlude but no Ghostway ?
You should definitely play Glen Elendra Archmage instead of Negate .
I know it's pricy, but have you considered Vampiric Tutor (or even more extreme: Imperial Seal )?
This deck is quite boardwipe light for a more control oriented strategy that can, on top of it, save some of it's creatures by temorarily exiling them. Terminus seems especially great, other than that just the classics: Wrath of God , Day of Judgment , Damnation .
These are all my thoughts on the deck, I hope there was something in there that is useful to you ;)

Thanks, EPICSpider23, for all the comments, help, and the links. I do look forward to comparing brews in the future!
Rona, Disciple of Gix is intriguing. I may have to look over EDHRec for some ideas. Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive can just be a pain in the but, and run with cards like Coastal Piracy can really rack up value.

Hey bushido_man96, so here's the link for my Hallar boy: Hallar the Firekicker and I've also got a Brawl deck with Tiana, Ship's Caretaker which has the amazing combos of Valduk, Keeper of the Flame , Danitha Capashen, Paragon and Kwende, Pride of Femeref . I might upload that at some point because at the moment it's just on paper.
I almost made a Rona, Disciple of Gix Commander but there wasn't enough content, I was after equipments/enchantment that gave her Ingest or ": Exile card from target player's library/graveyard/hand/whatever" but there was nothing so I was really diappointed, even after all the exile in the recent Zendikar block.
Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive is also really interesting but at the moment I'm slotting her into a Standard deck (while it's in rotation) combined with Rat Colony , sweet combo. This is in construction here: Tetsuko's Colony.
I don't know whether you've played Oathbreaker or not but I've started using the new uncommon planeswalkers in that format too. Uncommons are just the greatest for budget XD
I'll be keen to hear from you again and hope we can assist each other in our brewing :)

5c0r910n Ahh ok, I forgot about Serra Disciple . Chromatic Lantern was only in there to reach 5 colors for Chamber Sentry , but now that it's 4 colors I can probably add a Mox Amber or two or three and use the Treasure tokens to get there, considering I have a decent amount of Legendaries. Mox would also be another good 0CMC Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle trigger.

Big fan of this strategy. Working on trying to figure if we can make some sort of modern-esque pod deck? A big reason I love Vannifar in current standard is the ability for Kitesail Freebooter/Ravenous Chupacabra/Thrashing Brontodon/Knight of Autumn/Deputy of Detention. These are all spells in a creature, to make for some serious value with Vannifar.
If a combo can be found as an easy wincon with Vannifar, this deck could be really broken. Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle, 2xRona, Disciple of Gix and a Chamber Sentry is the best I have found, but that doesn't do much more than infinite casts, so I don't know what is left. Any thoughts on a version with black and without red?
