If you haven't been sold yet, I would say to stick to 1-2 color decks when starting off. It's easier it deck building to work with the basics, like the land count ratio and it would technically be cheaper since you don't have to buy so many dual lands (which does get pretty pricey!). On that note, I would say to start with Sigarda, Host of Herons. I myself have an Uril, the Miststalker deck, and having lots of cheap enchantments to smack people for game is pretty fun. You could benefit from having the cool equipments and enchantments. Just know that as a voltron deck, you will be targeted early on, because people know what the commander is capable of if you are left alone. (Lifegain cards are highly recommended.)

I would still consider a Sigarda, Host of Herons, since she can protect against things like All Is Dust, Cataclysmic Gearhulk, and Liliana of the Veil. Thrun, the Last Troll still dies to that, as well as Wrath of God and Damnation and possibly Cataclysmic Gearhulk.

Looking to get into commander. Unsure on the general I want, but I've narrowed it down to the ones listed below. If anyone has any experience (or a decklist for inspiration) either playing with or against the listed commanders, I'd love to hear from people

Animar, Soul of Elements, Sisters of Stone Death , Nath of the Gilt-Leaf, Sigarda, Host of Herons, Jenara, Asura of War, Sapling of Colfenor, Ulasht, the Hate Seed, Uril The Mist Stalker or Savra, Queen of the Golgari.

Thanks gang

Hello everyone!! I am submitting my Sigarda, Host of Herons deck with a great pride and excitement! After about three years of hard work and lots of playtesting, I think I reached the point where it has become as much optimized as possible, with every fetchland available and the necessary answers to my meta. There is a more extensive description on the link itself. Enjoy and thank you for your time!! It would be an absolute honor and indescribable joy if my deck was to be included in the tier list!!

Torpor Orb can also be fetched using Muddle the Mixture. And while I recently removed it (because I didn't find myself needing it), Whir of Invention would work as a great "surprise, your ETB effect isn't happening" tutor. There are a few other good artifact tutors in Blue as well.

I have Disallow to kill abilities, and in my meta that's been enough. Certainly adding other Stifle-esque cards is a good idea if required by your meta.

As far as problems...that's hard to answer. This is my hands-down favorite deck right now, but I don't get to play it as often as I'd like because my playgroup can only tolerate so much mono-B shenanigans in a single evening. Some of my hate pieces (Invoke Prejudice) draw too much hate in response, but it's a pet card and when it works it's backbreaking. Buddy has a brutally effective Sigarda, Host of Herons deck that's really hard to deal with, and Prejudice just shut him down entirely, it was great. Definitely not a political card and it makes me an immediate target, so I have to be careful and sometimes it's a dead card. I've found that I almost always have an answer, or can get an answer, when I need one. The biggest challenge has been playing the political game well enough to not be focused down. I can play Archenemy for a little while, but you can only have so much interaction. And while I definitely have a ton of draw, running out of gas is absolutely crippling; Leovold, Emissary of Trest was a backbreaker before he was banned.

The deck was objectively stronger when I used the Mass Polymorph strategy. It was ridiculously consistent at delaying the game and making drakes until a mana doubler became available, followed by a Mass Polymorph into Palinchron and Tidespout Tyrant for a win. I only took it out due to playgroup feedback. The additional challenge, though, has surprisingly made the deck more fun for me to play as well.

Assault Suit kind of found it's way when I was looking for a cheaper, more on-flavor alternative to Sigarda, Host of Herons. I had totally forgot it prevents the creature from being sacrificed, too lol!

Kaldra+Worldslayer is still my all-time favorite thing. Sadly, I had to cut Kaldra from this deck.

I figured against control you may have some problems since your creatures are resilient against discard, but not against straight removal. And you have no way to reanimate them. This is the main reason I mainboard a Liliana, the Last Hope. The discards will help you some, but a good control deck carries so much removal that discarding one or two won't put a dent into it. Many times I've IOK or Thoughtseized to reveal 2 Exiles and a Push or some other such craziness. In those instances, it's almost futile to have them discard a removal spell.

For those, I SB Thrun, the Last Troll, Sigarda, Host of Herons as my curve toppers and had that extra Liliana but I removed it in favor of something else (per some of your suggestions).

I've had success with aggro against control with a pseudo reanimation strategy tied to token flooding. Granted, this was in standard, but it was during the theros / KTK block when u/b and esper control reigned supreme. You can see what I mean here: The Horde smiles at death - Competitive (budget)

I used tons of little tricks like alesha + chief to get around the max 2 power limit, or could use stance to make creatures indestructible instead of removing. Perhaps there may be something similar in modern that you can leverage?
