Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker is a lot of fun in my own atheros shadowborn deck

Ensnaring Bridge can be a good combat lockdown when you attack with butts. Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker can also be a lot of fun.

Funkydiscogod, Updated the deck with Immortal Servitude. You're right, it's a much more effective card for what I need in this deck. Thanks!
Iname, Death Aspect is a really interesting idea with some interesting synergy in this deck. Could be very powerful if the circumstances are right. It ABSOLUTELY requires I have Bloodbond March out or Immortal Servitude in my hand though, and ideally Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker out as well. Not sure what to take out to put it in, but I'll play around with it and see.

I am going to go through a few commander's real quick that have been brought up.

Dralnu/Circu: I personally still think that Dralnu list is Tier 2, but if that is not accepted yet, 2.5 works. Circu is also running a similar deck with a different upside in hozing the other storm players with the third ability, and adding another wincon and should be moved up similarly.

Prossh: He is no longer the best food chain deck, as Tazri is. He is still very strong, but tier 1.5 still may not be justified.

Yidris: Having to connect with combat damage is a downside. While the storm does not rely on it, he is still sitting in tier 1 or 1.5 once consensus is heard. Increase of an archtype is not the best excuse for placements, every deck has bad matchups.

Brago: The commander breaks Stasis, there are very few cards that can do that and that is arguably the hardest stax card in magic. No Change.

GAAIV: Probably still on par with Tasigur Control. No Change.

Animar: It has been discussed here quite a few times that he is not what he once was, but is still a very consistent combo deck, no change.

Karador: He continues to only get better with Protean Hulk and Razaketh, no reason to change despite Thraisos+Tymna/Ravos probably doing it better, but that is why they're higher.

Teneb: He is Karador-lite and I now support moving him up to tier 2.5 like somnus suggested before his absence, hulk got him back.

Razaketh: He needs no change, as gigi summed up.

Scion: There is no reason to move that deck down with the amount of combos and consistency of each it achieves.

Jeleva vs Kess: I am staying out of this discussion.

Savra: Why is Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker not the Shadowborn apostle deck with his synergy? Vela the Night-Clad also seems quite good with that strategy.

Atraxa: The deck listed is not the stax version of her with parallax wave and parallax tide, but the boonweaver combo which she does nothing for other than colors for draw and counters. I am confused in why the build doesn't utilize her, and why she is placed here with boonweaver, likely needs lowered until a different build is figured out.

Alesha vs Edgar: Edgar needs proven, both do helm stax decks of the same color that will directly compete.

Azami: Probably needs revisited due to the wizards deck and if changed evaluated to be moved back to tier 1.5.

Keranos: Needs moved up to tier 2.5 with the deck I listed above as a stax deck.

I think that raps up most topics, probably missed something.

I have around 5 neglected generals in mind for decks like Reaper Kings that should bump them up.

I am also still working on a lower tier cleanup list that is a hidden deck on here, I will release it when done. There are 470ish generals down there so it is taking much longer than anticipated and I have also neglected it for a few brews lately, will get back to it.

We still need to get decks for all tier 3 commanders, so continue to submit decks for somnus tier 3 project.

Remember to not take any of the debates personally (specifically Jeleva vs Kess), as some people seem to be doing just that.

I agree with you completely, I ran both in a Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker deck. I originally had Ogre Slumlord but the mana the scions/spawns generate is invaluable! I only mentioned both because I ran both for redundancy

Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker is really great with apostles, since you can get their effects way more often this way.

That actually sounds pretty sweet. I know the majority of Shadowborn Apostle builds are either Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker or Athreos, God of Passage. I like the idea of sacrificing your 6 apostles just to get 6 spirits which translate into 2 exiles... sounds good. Don't forget your Illusionist's Bracers, Living Deaths, and Anointed Processions!

A lot of your discard creatures are one power. This makes me feel like Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker could be an interesting card for you to try. You could sac the same creature multiple times as the turns pass around the table if all goes well.
