darkone8 thanks for your comment!

As far as budget goes, having almost all the cards passed down from 2 generations to me made my life a bit easier for those big boi cards, and newer cards are still being printed so thats nice!

Samut, the Tested is a card everyone really ignored, I liked it a lot and started using her now people at my lgs who build superfriends now see her as a must. To further convince you about her hidden talents Ill debunk her abilities: I completely understand that she seems unviable especially underwhelming with her +1, however, that's not why shes here! Her -2 can kill both your Arena Rector and Academy Rector immediately! Grabbing you an extra planeswalker or your Omniscience / Doubling Season

Alternatively her -7, grabs you 2 more planeswalkers from your deck, and places them directly into play! Usually you have Doubling Season in play when you ult her, so why not ult 2 more planeswalkers while you're at it!

Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip was actually in this deck before, the problem is, her flip isn't very powerful. You barely want to ult her, same with Party Jace, and a couple other planeswalkers that are there for there + and - abilities. I wanna ult these bois!

Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker will be added though! Unfortunately it's not in my collection just yet, but once it is I will include him. The question is who to take out?

Noting how you don't seem to be running on any sort of a budget, I'm just going to throw out a couple of the other planeswalkers to replace a few of the ones you have that aren't that good (Like Samut, the Tested , who isn't effective since your deck doesn't have much to do with creatures). My personal suggestions would be to play some planeswalkers that have +1/+1 counter abilities, like some of the Ajanis do help boost Ramos's ability. Also, I would play some of the flip planeswalkers (like Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip) and I would personally play Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker because of the control options it offers.

If any Planeswalker is going to show up, my money is on Samut. While yes, Vivien also watched her world destroyed by Bolas, we as an "audience" actually watched it happen to Amonkhet. She'd be the perfect lens to see the hate and war through and would keep us grounded in what's at stake.

So, in memory of Amonkhet, here's a 4-ability Samut.

Samut, Enraged Vendetta

Legendary Planeswalker - Samut

+2 Target creature you control gets +3/+3 until end of turn. You may have it fight target creature you don't control.

+1 For each nontoken creature you control, add in any combination and .

0 Samut, Enraged Vendetta becomes an X/X Legendary Creature with doublestrike, haste, and trample until end of turn where X is her loyalty. All damage dealt to her is reduced by half, rounded down until end of turn.

-10 Search your library for up to six creatures and / or Planeswalkers and put them onto the battlefield. Put a vendetta counter on each of them. They gain haste, hexproof, and indestructible as long as they have a vendetta counter on them. Shuffle your library.


A little bit of Vivian / Garruk / Domri / Sarkhan, a dash of Xenagos, a pinch of Gideon (out of color, of course), and a powerful homage to Samut, the Tested .

Same challenge :)

@frezzreaper: I'm currently trying to understand where this could be going for the better. Ramp is good, but I never really knew how splash colors work in Magic as a whole. Is it there for more underrated colors? If is such a choice here, maybe it's because of how so few of such things could be of use here as so many ran Atraxa as the CMDR here, & how I really believe what the true Superfriends CMDR would have to be something not released yet at worst. I simply chose Sliver Queen for this. Also, huh. Paradox Engine does nothing here it seems. I'll... just remove the infinite Clockspinning combo from there. Next, you... might have a great point about that. The Walker Base is too out there, & some are better w/ Creatures than anything else. Didn't think of Sphere of the Suns actually... >~< I'll see what I can rework the Rocks, & non-Dork accelerators... I'll also see what's underpowered the worst of my Walkers as well. If you want to help me still; note that I'll NEVER afford Timetwister ever. Though this means I'll have to cut Samut, the Tested as a result. Sadly, the same goes for Vivien Reid. Also, I actually prefer more than 5 board wipes anyway. What is the number of Tutors you didn't mention some time back? I get >=5 Wipes, 10 Accel, & 5 Draw. Aside from all those, I'll take it from here... I'll see what to cut...

I'll have to take a look at the deck more in depth, but anytime someone says they want to cheat out creatures in Naya, a few cards come to mind.

Nahiri, the Harbinger obviously for her ultimate.

Samut, the Tested gets you two creatures, or a creature and a Planeswalker if you have out Doubling Season, or two Planeswalkers if you are greedy.

Garruk, Caller of Beasts works great to T3 - T4 something massive like Gishath, Sun's Avatar.

I'm not sure how well the consistency would work in EDH, but I find a wild amount of success with See the Unwritten in Modern.

Genesis Wave, obviously.

Savage Ventmaw, my #1 favorite Dragon in literally all of Magic :D Seriously, a Dragon who ramps SIX MANA OF TWO COLORS?!? Oof <3

I see you're not running Tribal, but hey you have a decent chunk of your creatures as Angels and Elves, so Descendants' Path may be worth while?

Just spitballing ideas. Maybe something will stick. Otherwise it looks fun :)

Keep in mind Samut, the Tested is no longer Standard legal, however. I do enjoy the premise.

@DrkNinja (That's another deck of yours I need to upvote. XP): OK, you win. Now you made me want to run Sarkhan Unbroken, but what do you think I should cut? Mirari's Wake? A combo piece that's also vital? Or something else entirely? I guess I could cut Ob Nixilis Reignited for him? Samut, the Tested can potentially put 8 walkers at most on the field on the same turn, you know. ;)

BMHKain on My cEDH Boros Decks need ...

Soldier of Fortune, Boros' Final Stand

Commander / EDH* BMHKain


Before we begin, I'd like to apologize for all this, particularly cdkime, who I dunno what his(her?) thoughts would be about this...

For Deck 1: I still wanted this to be cEDH based, even though awhile back, this is a hopeless case. Currently the best are Tier 4, & I still do in fact want to upgrade them up a Tier, like a joke Depala deck, which was stated as Tier 3, but is unable to qualify as such. Also, since most of my stuff will be 3 CMC, I wanted to focus on cards w/ this quality, 4 CMC at worst for Sunforger. That said, I wanted some versatility further w/ stuff that might be worth it. The list of stuff I want to add is incomplete so far, but I'm thinking of changing my commander to deal w/ this, & potentially, remove my burn. Also, I dunno how useful Lone Missionary is, but Priest of Urabrask makes for Endless . Here's hoping I can find the same for Endless in CMC3 Danger Zone (Not sure how good Farrelite Priest is, actually... :/). For the Commander, I wanted something that could work w/ the mass combo, Stax, & even other things. I'm currently aiming for Tajic, Legion's Edge as he has low CMC, and can hit hard & fast. But maybe there are better; but I'm NOT Complying to Depala as She's a Tribal Commander, and fast fact: I'd rather use O-Kagachi, Vengeful Kami over Geist of Saint Traft anyway. Think about it, she is 5c, & is Thematic w/ Kamigawa, & can splice the night away, & has colors Spirits have even seeped through...

This deck has a huge hole though: Torpor Orb, & Hushwing Gryff. They easily shut down this deck. Suggestions to bypass this are welcome. :)

Any suggestions are welcome; but I'm not scrapping either Deck when I made it this far. I'll find more options later...

Good luck to all! ^_^ Sorry for all this text though...

re:ZERO UPDATE: Finally finished my Superfriends deck. At least until the next set; Ravnica Allegiance... Now, does anybody have any suggestions for my cEDH Boros Deck? I'm open for them...
