DrukenReaps on Best Commanders for Out-of-color-pie strategies?

3 weeks ago

I feel like Queen Marchesa, Mathas, Fiend Seeker, and Tariel, Reckoner of Souls are a bit out of the norm for their colors. The rest of the mardu commanders need to be aggressive to use the whole card these ones don't.

Gaddock Teeg is probably the master of selesnya control. I think Karametra, God of Harvests, Selvala, Explorer Returned, and Captain Sisay can be part of solid control strategies. I would mostly expect them to work with hatebears which is not that uncommon in those colors.

Wort, the Raidmother is quite the oddball encouraging spellslinger builds in gruul of all places. Double Hurricane to have all the funz! Rosheen Meanderer usually built with hydras but X spells like Fireball are good too.

There are a few oddballs in almost every combination of colors.

Selvala, Explorer Returned and Spirit of the Labyrinth work well in this deck format.

kozad: OMG I am an idiot! I put it in when I started thinking about elfball, as a Selvala, Explorer Returned deck. I guess it pays to read all the cards!

Selvala, Explorer Returned is the commander of this thread

Hey everyone,

So I have been working on this deck for quite a while as you can see its almost foiled out but I played a few competitive game at a tournament I went to recently and really enjoyed it. I was considering building the same deck but more stax oriented still with selvala. This deck that I have so far I mainly just added some mass land destruction and the artifact stax cards like Winter Orb and Sphere of Resistance type cards. I want YOUR opinions on what to cut or add from my current stax version to make it more competitive. I want to still have a big mana feel to it so that is why i kept in the big hate bears and ways to cheese them out. If this becomes too much of a problem then I can change it but I kind of want to stay away from just 60 hatebears.dec maybe just 30 hatebears ;).

Thanks in advance
