Shattergang Brothers Discussion
6 days ago
@ERoss8, jund was a thought I had for goblins (comment #3), since we only have Shattergang brother to rep them. There are a lot of gobbies in those colors! We also have Goblin Electromancer; so they might throw us off and do temur or grixis goblins
@iAzire, the four decks thing is confusing me too. It's awkward to fit five colors cleanly into four decks. My main thought it they might just do 5-color and/or colorless decks.
We have 5c slivers, dragons, angels, eldrazi, allies, scarecrows, elementals, even atogs haha.
Imagine a five color Emrakul?! Either pre-mending or way in the future after she's broken free from innistrad?!
Maybe it's two 5c and two colorless with Karn or something

So, I have the budget (decks will still be quasi-budget ~$10 cards) to make another deck and need help deciding whom to choose. I already own some of the most expensive staples in the decks listed.
Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper Goblin Tribal: it's not Wort bc my buddy runs her and Krenko is in my Purphoros deck. offers a lot of thing unavailable to . The general helps persuade would-be boardwipes. Shattergang Brothers is better off as a build-around. Example: Sek'kuar's Sacrificial Horde
Doran, the Siege Tower: I'm avoiding Abzan goodstuff.dec and voltron. Simple, play big butts and swing while locking down the board via Crackdown/Meekstone/Marble Titan ect. One sided boardwipes also help punch through. The taste of vanilla critters leaves me apprehensive. Example: Doran Smash and Control
Anafenza, the Foremost or Ghave, Guru of Spores: +1/+1 counters. Perhaps some Hydra fun. Yes, I've looked at Abzan quite a bit lately. Probably not the broken combo route with Ghave. Tokens do interest me but I'm not going to use Doubling Season, too expensive.
Flanking "tribal." It's more like a knight tribal deck considering most things with flanking are knights. I threw this list together in like 20 minutes and was something I thought of a long time ago. So real rough sketch. List: Flanking Tribal
Last but not least spider tribal with Ishkanah, Grafwidow

MagicalHacker: what're your thoughts on Jund goblin tribal? Shattergang Brothers I feel are not as useful (in this particular build) as Sek'kuar. Sek'kuar works as a board failsafe against boardwipes which would squash other goblin generals (I.e. Krenko).

I think the answer to going Stax would be to start with getting rid of the +1/+1 counter sub-theme to make a little room, start taking a look at / considering Shattergang Brothers and going Jund.... then and looking at some Shattergang lists (even if your staying with Golgari, still look at some of the lists..) here and / or on EDHREC.

Liliana Vess would be a weaker Sidisi.
Nissa, Vital Force can also untap Cradle, but has the added bonuses of turning it into a creature for easy Umbral Mantle/Staff of Domination/Sword of the Paruns combos; with an Eternal Witness effect thrown in for good measure. Not to mention ult-ing her is actually feasible. This would definitely be competitive, tier 2 or 2.5 probably, and I kinda want to make it now...
Nissa, Worldwaker isn't as good, but plays for 1 mana essentially.
Liliana of the Veil would be pretty good as a stax/discard/reanimator general.
Elspeth Tirel and Elspeth, Sun's Champion are pretty good in commander already, though a little limited by the mono-W color identity. Elspeth Tirel would have a grindy stax plan with everything that makes token copies of things as tech, while Elspeth, Sun's Champion would just be tokens.
Playing a game against Karn Liberated would literally (figuratively) make me want to kill myself. The fact that he can deal with any permanent type from the command zone is probably enough to push him into T2.5 despite being a colorless general.
I could see Kiora, Master of the Depths making it to the comp tiers based off of color identity alone. Untapping a creature and land can be pretty useful even if it's only once per turn (or not: Gaea's Cradle + Kiora's Follower + The Chain Veil = infinite loyalty, infinite mana, infinite activations of another PW, and you can ult on the last activation even though her ult sucks.)
Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast could make a pretty interesting stax/value general similar to Shattergang Brothers. Having sac fodder is great in black, and destroying artifacts is pretty relevant at higher levels of play.
Tamiyo, Field Researcher has great colors, a non restrictive cost, and if you can actually build into her +1, the potential to draw a ton of cards. I could see her acting similar to Edric, Spymaster of Trest.
Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded is obviously OP banworthy. I mean, just look at the guy. Discard a card at random? For only 2 mana? He break the meta in half, no question.
Lastly, Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker makes it to T1 just because of how much cooler he'd be than Jeleva as a placeholder for Grixis Storm.

if there are too many boardwipes and a semi-competitive meta...you should probably rely less on creatures...which leads to combo....or really gross stax/tax or control strategies....
Shattergang Brothers stax ?
Thraximundar control ?
Narset, Enlightened Master combo ?
these are just examples...but if aggro doesn't work for your meta....these are the kind of lines you should be thinking about imo

Shattergang Brothers are awesome, hope you enjoy Commander! My first step when building a commander deck is usually to go to EDHREC.com to see what other players use with a given commander, before customizing it for myself. For this deck, I would check out https://edhrec.com/commanders/shattergang-brothers.
Also, gatherer.wizards.com is a huge database of all Magic cards, with lots of different advanced search options, which is extremely helpful.
