miracleHat so, I removed those cards but the monument. I still find It quite usefull, I shall run some more tests with It before ditching It for Rootborn Defenses. Thanks for the tip of the demon by the way, there's a certain commander deck with Shadowborn Apostle I want to play with. That cool demon seems nice in It.

Geier Reach Sanitarium could be an option for putting Shadowborn Apostle into your graveyard.

sonnet666 Here's what I threw together as a Savra list based on my Hapatra list. Savra Apostle Storm I'm not 100% happy with it currently. I think it could use more interaction, but it's difficult balancing card slots between combo, interaction, and what is critical mass for Shadowborn Apostles. I'm about to go out of town for a couple days so I won't be able to work on it, but I'd be happy to add you to the deck list so you could do some edits if you like.

Ashes is in the maybeboard as a budget alternative. The issue with Ashes is that you can't combo it with Shadowborn Apostle to search for God Crow

I've been very distracted about my newfound responsibilities here I'm just going to go up the list a little:

RivenVII, Fixed Narset link, and I'm not sure what list you're looking at, but Garta's list doesn't mention anything about partial paris in the description. The opposite, actually.

Anyway, I'm keeping his list because I like his primer and how Approach of the Second Sun streamlines the deck's win condition and his explanation of how it's used.

merrowMania, Ohthenoises, Lilbrudder, & chaosumbreon87: Moved Circu, Dimir Lobotomist to T3 and added chaosumbreon87's deck in the description. His synergy with Dramatic Scepter is pretty clear cut, and chaosumbreon87's list looks good enough to have up for now. (Although, I recommend shifting the mana base more toward blue, my playtests were giving me too many swamps I didn't need with the even split you have right now. Also Time Spiral?)

BestKeptSecret, If you think your Sram list is competitive you could link it here if you want. Our current list doesn't run Alhammarret's Archive, and personally I think that's an oversight.

Ohthenoises, I don't think Ramunap is going to effect Titania that much since Crucible was never really a plan A for the deck, but it's definitely going to be a good addition.

Also, I'm pretty sure that I'm the only one who's posted a Titania list here, so I'll probably figure out where Ramuna goes and put that up soon. (I've also discovered some interesting combo potential with her and Drownyard Temple recently, which could be cool.)

Scyxx, The Commander 2017 legends have not been added to the site yet because they were leaks. When they're added they'll go on here. EVERYBODY ELSE: Remind me what placement was agreed on for them. I was thinking:

  • Wasitora - T3
  • O-Kagachi - T3
  • Ur-Dragon - T4
  • Ramos - T2.5 (? - There was a lot of discussion on him, did anyone come up with anything solid?)
  • Taigam - T2.5 (We need to come up with something here too.)

Ohthenoises: Phenax has actually been a pet project of mine for a while now. I'm convinced that he could make an excellent combo deck that uses self-mill & the yard to see pieces more consistently. Haven't really got it off the ground though. As to your question, most Phenax decks run Undead Alchemist and Altar of the Brood already since they combo with other cards.

Hi Brewstorm! I really like your Arcanis list. It's seems straightforward and powerful. I've added it to the description since TheDevicer seems to have taken his list private or deleted it. (No offense meant TheDevicer! Unfortunately, I never got a chance to view your Arcanis deck, so right now I don't have anything to compare to. If you feel your deck still deserves a shot, then you can feel free to resubmit.)

HezTheGod, Though I think your deck looks just like every other Izzet storm deck ever, it's easy to see how Mindmoil in the command zone is helpful in the archetype. Moved Arjun to T3, added your deck to the description.

ajacobik, There's been a lot of talk about Erebos in cEDH lately. I know there's a good deck up on Reddit. I gotta say, having played against a friend's Erebos deck extensively, I'm little skeptical, but I'm aware he's gaining popularity and he might move up.

SIDBJJ, That list looks very good. I'll throw it up on List of Partner Pairs by Tier. I do think you have room to keep improving though, n0bunga was giving good advice about colored mana combos, Grand Architect and Pili-Pala are a creature and an artifact creature, which gives you much better reception to blue/green's tutor profile. Also, I'm not too sold on Tooth and Nail into Deadeye even with Kydele's ramp, that combo tends to be outmoded nowadays in cEDH. You're definitely off to a great start though, so keep at it. I don't think too many other people are brewing Thrasios/Kydele right now.

chaosumbreon87, Added your Kefnet list. The others didn't really stand out to me (or are too soon to call like Ramos and Taigam). Left you some comments on the other ones.

Other changes:

So long as there are no objections I'm going to make some changes that I've been harping on since forever:

I'd also like peoples opinions on whether the following commanders that were demoted to T3 before the advent of .5 tiers should be given the opportunity to move to T2.5:

Another thing I'd like people's opinions on: promoting Savra, Queen of the Golgari to T3. After playtesting this deck: Hapatra Vizier of Apostles, by HarroHunter I was pleasantly surprised to see how fast and efficient Thrumming Stone+Shadowborn Apostle could be in EDH, especially with one or two other G/B combos to back it up. As I told HarroHunter, I didn't think the deck had enough to do with Hapetra to be representative of her, but I do think the list itself has merit, and it seemed to me like the most logical G/B commander to run it would be Savra, as she'd give you scaleable creature sweep with the Apostles. What does everybody think? With this list in mind, could Savra move up?

Last thing that's been brought up is the possibility of a name change to make the title of this list more coherent. Would anyone be bothered if I changed this list's name from "[List - Multiplayer] EDH Generals by Tier" to "List of All Commanders in Multiplayer by Tier" ?

This is only about half of what I planned on addressing, but Imma take a break now since this comment is really long and I'm losing my mind.

you should use Shadowborn Apostle instead of relentless rats because it can help you stay alive longer.

Hybrow on Shadowborn Apostles and the demons who love them

Penthoplayer I have looked at Edgewalker before, as well as Zulaport Cutthroat, they are both very tempting (Blood Artist, I lump in with Cutthroat)..

The problem with Edgewalker that I see from playtests is that I am not really worried about paying for my Shadowborn Apostles. They are pretty cheap, and after the first initial hand, I am not hurting for mana. And with Thrumming Stone, Immortal Servitude, and Rally the Ancestors I tend to not pay too much for them after the first few hands.

Zulaport Cutthroat is super tempting, the more I play this, the more I realize that I don't need 10 demons in the deck. And the direct damage/Lifegain is nice. I would also get it for the Apostles and then again for the spirits that Teysa, Orzhov Scion produces. I think I am going to have to find a spot for him, but I am thinking only 1 spot, so no Blood Artist :)

Now I just have to figure out my most useless Demon, thinking it might be Stronghold Overseer.
