My name is pretty much synonymous with Dominus - Dreamcrusher Edition.
It's not the best deck in existence, but it does well enough.
Among the best decks are Hermit Druid combo (which uses Scion of the Ur-Dragon), Zur the Enchanter, Edric, Spymaster of Trest, and Arcum Dagsson. Animar, Soul of Elements and Sharuum the Hegemon are also good.
@Forceofnature1: Cheers, I've spent a while getting this deck where it is so it's nice to see that other people feel similarly about it. The deck is a lot of fun to play, it's actually my most enjoyable deck I think.
I used to run Regrowth but yeah, swapped it out for Noxious Revival. Although Regrowth puts the card to hand, I often found that the 2 mana was a prohibiting the deck from comboing off that turn anyway (usually I only have 1 or no mana spare to get he combo up and running). The other thing is the instant speed of revival meant that I could save something in response to somebody exiliing my graveyard. The other big benefit of it is that it is actually "target player" as well. It means That if I need to make a temporary truce with a player to get them back a wrath or removal spell to stop a 3rd player I can. And I can also screw with other reanimtor decks by putting their reanimation target on top of their library, which also then fixes their draw for a turn. On the whole, I just found it to be a better card (and the phyrexian mana is really nice).
As for meta - I have a casual group and a competitive group. I use this deck every now and again in my casual meta, but it is designed for competition. In that meta, you see a LOT more combo. The noted ones are a Damia, Sage of Stone combo deck, a Sharuum the Hegemon artifact deck, a Captain Sisay beats deck, as well as some other ones like a mono blue Oona, Queen of the Fae deck, a Prime Speaker Zegana deck, Karador, Ghost Chieftain graveyard combo, a Maelstrom Wanderer storm deck, the list goes on. So depending on the banlist (we have a custom one) I will either play this or my Damia, Sage of Stone deck (there are like three at our league) which canbe found here: Damia Morgendorffer.
As for play styles, yeah, the league is fast. This is one of the cheaper costed decks but most of the veteran decks at hte league sit anywhere from $1000 to $3500 which is one of the most expensive (but it is foiled out). As for where this deck fits in - I will try to combo off ASAP. the longer the game goes, the weaker the deck gets. Because I don't have blue or black for card draw, I can get stuck top-decking, which is less than desirable. The fastest the deck CAN combo is turn 3 (with a Sol Ring drop) but I don't like to count that. Realistically the deck becomes a threat in a big way at about the turn 5/6 mark. With a bit of early ramp, I can drop all of the combo pieces (Saffi Eriksdotter is usually on the board turn 2 or 3 anyway) in one turn and combo off. That or by turn 9 / 10 get something like Avenger of Zendikar + Craterhoof Behemoth via something like Birthing Pod. But yeah, its definately an early to mid deck.
No suggestions from anyone? I'm sure there's something that could be changed/added to make the deck better. That said, it's been testing beautifully and I've managed to kill the table in the 2 games I've played with it (2 separate Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury decks - one using banned cards, an eldrazi deck, a Child of Alara deck - twice, a Sharuum the Hegemon deck and a Norin the Wary deck - so annoying!)
For value you get from the commander itself, nothing tops Derevi, Empyrial Tactician. Hands down. That bird should have been 7cmc, and without her activated ability.
So yeah, those three have my vote for the best commanders. If I had to choose the best option, I'd say Damia, because overall deck strength is better than having a bonkers commander, but she shows that those two aren't mutually exclusive.
Sharuum the Hegemon will work as your commander.
@CastleSiege true but im not much of a esper player but it check it out. I have seen Sharuum the Hegemon in action before and it was amazing to see and play against but it seemed a little off to me. But i will give it a second look and check around the site and see whats out there.
You could build an esper deck around Sharuum the Hegemon for stupid shenanigans and use both Karn and Memnarch.
kinda general, but ok:
Sharuum the Hegemon artifact deck
any g-d in theros block fitting its ability (i.e. large creatures/ramp with xenag-d, weenies with heliod)
uhm...Avacyn, Angel of Hope for a nice white ramp/protection deck
this is all i could do for now, but a lot of the legends from kamigawa could make good edh decks...
