Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest Discussion

+1 Looks like a super fun take on Jeskai in commander! I wish I had the budget to build! Have you thought about Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest and more Swords with Trinket Mage?

MoonTurtle7 on First deck help please

Phyrexian... Idk I guess infect may be something worth looking into. But honestly certain voltron commanders are really awesome for kitchen table.Uril, the Miststalker is fun and some fantastic colors for aura-based voltron. he can even get an enchantress draw engine that really gets things going, with vigilance trample and haste being very available to him.

Bruna, Light of Alabaster is pretty sweet, you can self-mill or group mill to your advantage. she has access to unblockable and/or Corrupted Conscience which is makes her a very sudden threat.

Sigarda, Host of Herons is by-far one of the better Voltron options due to the innate issue with most voltron decks is that group sacrifice and targeted sacrifice are the bane of your existence

Sram, Senior Edificer is a great one. White has some of the best auras and equipment support. He's cheap to play (and bring back) and is an engine on his own, drawing cards just for trying to do what you're gonna do anyway. Not to mention, your mana base is SUPER easy on your budget.

Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest is one of the most explosive decks out there. having a pump and control base is extremely strong as long as you grab card draw to keep him going, he's quite the powerhouse. Just Distortion Strike + Titan's Strength and you have 18 unblockable damage launching at someone. That was 2 cards you played and 4 mana used. (if he's already on the field) There is a reason some people call him "One Punch Man"

Now if you want the obvious ones, here they are...

Rafiq of the Many is the grand daddy of Voltron as a strategy. Using his own ability to buff himself then having some really solid aura and artifact support. Though, he's got a reputation as a huge powerhouse making you the target almost always.

Narset, Enlightened Master You want to do all the things all the time once your commander hits the field? Narset is pretty much just swing to do what ever the fuck you want. The downside is that you will either use no other creatures, or almost none. She's downright broken, but has so many options open to her. So you could make her a "take so many turns until your opponents die of old age" or "lets make a weird artifact canon cause I can" to "lets play a storm deck" her power and threat level is entirely based on what you intend to do and how you build/imagine the deck.

Finally Zur the Enchanter more like "Zur who gives cancer". this guy most of the time is an enchantment based control deck. where your opponents do nothing while you tutor for any and everything you might need. This guy is super powerful and is banned in 1v1 for a lot of reasons. Just imagine a tutor on a stick to some of the most powerful enchantments. Ethereal Armor, Imprisoned in the Moon, Darksteel Mutation, Karmic Justice, Authority of the Consuls, Phyresis, Stasis, Land Tax Nevermore, Rest in Peace, Propaganda, Solemnity, even Necropotence. Any of these can just be grabbed if needed to answer any threat. while you either kill with commander dmg or stall into a combo. The deck is very rarely not gonna do what it intends to do.

These are some of the better voltron commanders. Personally if you want to use a commander from the Phyrexian blocks.

Urabrask the Hidden can do it.

Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger is expensive but a for a reason.

Thrun, the Last Troll is from new phyrexia I'm pretty sure. very safe and regenerate saves auras from falling off of him, makes him a solid pick.

vbfabled on Interplanar Grudge Match?

Okay, less controversial post this week. This time just geeking out.

So the question here is: If you could have any 2 characters from throughout Magic's lore to enter into a 1 on 1 fight to the death, who would you choose? Why them? Who would win? How might the fight play out?

Personally, I'd like to see Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest fight Niv-Mizzet. Without the guild backing him up, it'd be a heck of a fight. We know Shu Yun can kill dragons instantly via pressure points, but he'd have to outsmart Mizzet to get close enough which would be a real challenge.

Fair enough, but wouldn't a commander like Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest make more sense then?

Neotrup on Half mana symbol in edh

Another special case is Charmed Pendant, which can be played in decks that have neither blue nor black in their color identity. Again, because the colored mana symbols appear only in reminder text, and this card is likely why Extort cards are allowed in decks that only use white, as the rule regarding reminder text actually predates extort. As for hybrid mana in general, it does count as both colors and thus requires you to be playing both colors, for instance you cannot run Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest in your deck, despite it being a blue card with a triggered ability you could pay for with white, because having the option to pay with red does exclude it from Grand Arbiter Augustin IV color identity.

If You want to change cmdr, Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest might be something You will like.

In response to your Card Creation comment, I was talking about the original Khans from Fate Reforged, not the newer ones from Dragons.

As in, Daghatar the Adamant, Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest, Tasigur, the Golden Fang, Alesha, Who Smiles at Death, and Yasova Dragonclaw.

Flagellum on MagicalHacker

Hey MagicalHacker, I need your sage advice once more. I'm having troubles deciding who I should run next: Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest or Tibor and Lumia.

My worries on Yun is that he wants to go Voltron but I've got 2 commanders that already do that. Instead I wanted to focus on the "prowess" type effects and pump several critters as opposed to just Yun.

T&L also wanted to do the prowess type effects with cantrips of various sorts. Was also keeping it more flier tribal par se and is only dual colors not tri. Things like Charisma and Repercussion can control the board. T&L are also not viewed as a threat.
