Sen Triplets Discussion
3 hours ago
cdkime Sorry for bringing you into this after a while, I wanted your opinion on the commander for the Aes Sedai deck.
So, I was thinking of doing a wizard/cleric/warrior tribal to fit the theme. I really don't care about secondary creature type on the cards, just wanted to make it a sort of themed deck.
What's your opinion on choosing one of these for the commander?
Taigam, Ojutai Master (minus dragons)

I find esper to be the most exciting. Because of the colors, I think it will be powerful like Atraxa (also bant), but I would like to see a version of Sen Triplets that allows you to peek at the top of each player’s deck and cast one of those spells per turn (at sorcery speed to make it more tame).
For the artwork, I think the mask woman, the girl in the swamp, and the zombie are esper, the spider is jund, and the goddess and the knight are bant.

I specifically meant Sen Triplets, not Sharuum the Hegemon (the real artifact esper commander of choice other than Sydri, Galvanic Genius), in fact now that I think about it, Sen Triplets sucks as an esper artifact commander, and also Celestial Dawn isn't exactly an artifact combo.
Exquisite Blood and Sanguine Bond are enchantments, so they can be Replenished/Open the Vaultsed back with ease after a Tunnel Vision/Traumatize, and the fact they need lifeloss is easy with an unblockable hexproof commander. Neither of your "combos" win the game, let alone can be Replenished.
Celestial Dawn + Caged Sun = Double you land mana, and give it perfect fixing, minus Ancient Tomb, which now only receives fixing, and Boseiju, Who Shelters All doesn't protect you stuff, ad your artifact mana is kind of sucky now.
See what happened, a 9 mana two card combo did worse than a Mirari's Wake, which is another way of saying it sucks, together. On their own, Caged Sun does very little ramping, and it outclassed by Thran Dynamo/Gilded Lotus most of the time, which I could make an argument that they were bad, and Celestial Dawn is even worse, with this deck already having an incredibly powerful landbase, it un-ramps you with Ancient Tomb and Boseiju, Who Shelters All sucks now.
Onto the next "combo:" This one you were kind enough to even put a reason for:
Okay, Mycosynth Lattice + Unwinding Clock untaps all of your permanents (lands, artifacts and creatures mostly), along with fixing each players mana perfectly, and leaving you open to a blowout with Hellkite Tyrant, By Force, Vandalblast or Shattering Spree.
Okay, so tons of value? I mean it has a major couple of downsides, this deck is fine on its own fixing, and it fixes for all of your opponents? it is 10 mana, and can't be cheated out by Replenish, so it comes late in the game, and your opponents can probably tutor a Vandalblast up be now, so tons of value? Lets, see, if we untap every one of our permanents, every turn, what ways do we have to abuse the excess of mana? 8 things, of which 5 are instants (Cyclonic Rift, Dark Ritual, Enlightened Tutor, Mystical Tutor, and Vampiric Tutor), we can also move around Felidar Umbra a lot, activate Nomad Mythmaker, or Flickerform a little bit.
Well, yeah, and the cards are bad on their own, so it is a trash combo in this deck, despite what you said.

As neither combo wins us the game, both are expensive, and all 4 cards are dead, they shouldn't be run.

Don't forget to add cards that remove suspend counters, adds a lot of flexibility to the deck. I played with a guy that had Sen Triplets and lol that was a fun game.

First off, who should be my commander? I was thinking Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder for the colors and the "free spells" aspect. Any other suggestions? Is Sen Triplets the only good white spell in this aspect? Or are there others that could push me into 5 color?
And other cool effects besides the ones I mentioned that I should include?
Here is what I have so far:
All tips appreciated!

You need more affects like Lightning Greaves, Swiftfoot Boots, and Elgaud Shieldmate. Making Sen Triplets indestructible doesn't cut it. You need to protect it (them?) from cards like Path to Exile, Swords to Plowshares, and Darksteel Mutation that will either straight up exile Sen Triplets (making indestructible useless) or will just make the card itself useless.
Just some of my thoughts, I don't know what your playgroup is like. (Oh, and I would also consider the threats I mentioned above along with Insidious Will to deal with threats your opponents may have)

Building this deck as Sen Triplets i like the idea
