Have you thought of Akiri, Line-Slinger partner with Silas Renn, Seeker Adept artifact creatures buff Akiri so does sials. Plus using things things like Aether Spellbomb buff akiri until you need to use it and you can pull things back from the graveyard with things like Myr Retriever and Skeleton Shard these are all commons an uncommons plus a alot of draw and fetch lands from common and uncommon artifacts

casual_competitive yeah she is a gem for sure! I have used her to such great effect in my wizards tribal deck that she convinced me she needed her own build. Probabaly my favorite art in magic as well! I originally ran Silas Renn, Seeker Adept as my general but the fact that Vela can just close out games really helped the deck gain some stability and staying power.

Hi. The name of the post may be misleading. I just wanted to say that I was starting a project where I was going to build 8 different EDH decks. Each deck is going to be one of the different color combinations that include both White and Black. (Hence the title).
(I'm making these decks in real life). I just thought it would be cool to share my journey, as I've never really ever focused on having more than one deck at any given time.
Anyway, I will be updating this post here as I finish. (The rules say no deck lists here, but I'm sure you can find them on my profile. I'll put a note next to the ones that I have finished below). I really want to make these decks at least somewhat competitive with my limited knowledge, so any help is appreciated.
The current plan for the commanders is this:
UBW - Ertai, the Corrupted
WUBRG - Golos, Tireless Pilgrim
(Subject to Change)

Hi, I recently commented on your Glissa deck, and I wanted to know if you were willing to help me with a deck that is similar, considering that you most likely know far more on the topic. The idea is to attempt to make a cEDH deck with Silas Renn, Seeker Adept and Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa. (I have those cards and wanted to build a deck with them). I vision it as - 4 color Glissa. Thank you regardless.

Partner commanders are powerful, and often free your deck's ability to do more than a single commander deck. Companions give decks restrictions on what cards they can run. By running both it limits your deck even more, since most partner pairings don't work with the companion requirements.
Yorion, Sky Nomad and Lutri, the Spellchaser straight up can't be run as companions, and Jegantha, the Wellspring won't work since it requires five colors, and no partner pairing currently allows for it. No partner pairing also allows for Lurrus of the Dream-Den. Gyruda, Doom of Depths also can't be run, since no partners are both even cmc and have black in their color identity. Kaheera, the Orphanguard also can't work, since the types aren't found on partners that can be run together.
Now, what lists are now able to be run?
Wow, that only took a half hour longer to write up than expected.
Which of these would you want to make, if any, and how would you make them?

Running a non-creature artifact as commander wildly disregards the rules of the format, adhering to neither the commander rule nor the color identity rules. I've seen decks run silver bordered commanders or Legendary-ish creatures, like Genju of the Realm, Chromanticore, or the Nephilim but I think you're diverging into something else entirely here.
I've run plenty of decks that relied on a specific artifact to do the "Thing" they want to do. It's generally not a problem if you're building around a specific effect, there are plenty of ways to go find or recur any one card.
Running Silas Renn, Seeker Adept and another Partner commander might work well for you if you wanted Sundial to be your lynchpin.
Neat as a thought experiment, but I wouldn't want to play against this deck and I'm really easy going about most things. Banned cards? Ok, whatever. Silver bordered? Sure have at it. Proxies? No problem. But ignoring two fundamental rules of the game to run a colorless artifact as your commander and not build a colorless deck around it too? Man what are we doing here?

Je pense que t'as assez de cartes dans le deck qui profite d'artifacts qui rentre sur le jeu ou qui sont mis dans le graveyard. J'irais pour une synergie encore plus token à cause de cela. Si jamais en plus tu n'es pas sur le Throne, Marchesa pump tout le bord de +1/+1. Ça peut très rapidement dégénéré et tu pourras overwhelm encore plus facilement tes opponents.
En ce qui est de ramp, j'irais avec une liste semblable à ceci:

Hiya folks, just gunna drop this here for awhile... As much as I don't need new projects I've me up with another idea while being bored to death at work. That idea though needs your ideas, examples, and input. If you haven't guessed from the title...
That leave the 4 other colors to work with. Commander options are in short supply for these colors being:
I guess we have to ask what do we lose with red, and it's a lot. Fire breathing, most tribal bluffs, cost reduction, and dragon tokens. Could be replaced sort of, but that leans heavy on green for ramp which is the least shiny of the dragon colors I think. So much so that I am on the fence about dropping to 3 colors.
Esper dragons offer control as most esper decks do, but can it go fast enough like a typical dragon deck or will it stall for the long game? Or keep green and drop another color? White seems like the next best choice except I like Taigam, Ojutai Master and Scalelord Reckoner alot for this. Sans black would lose alot of removal options like both Silumgars, Crux of Fate, and Deathbringer Reagent. Blue too also loses the Silumgars, Taigam and control options like counterspells.
So now that my thoughts are out of the way, what are yours? Have any of you done this before and care to share examples/ideas?
