Thanks for all your suggestions :) I prefer having enrage enablers as permanents, because for an instant or sorcery the slot is just not worth it. Even some of the flashback spells isn't worth it since sadly there are only about 9-12 enrage dinos that are worth running in EDH, so the board is not to often filled enough for 1 turn spells to be worth it.

I have already included Staff of Nin and i do think after some playtesting with this version ones i get the cards from RIX i will definitely try out Caltrops and maybe Powerstone Minefield and Fire Ants.

Thanks Again :)

Oh you need enrage triggers well here you go

And because Temple Altisaur

I should point sweeps like Chain Reaction and Blasphemous Act become one sided like Plague Wind just give the altisaur indestructable somehow

Thanks Hc_Clan!! The Porcelain Legionnaire and the Lantern Kami was both cards that never get very useful in the main deck, now you tell me, i can see it better, i took off both of them and put Mind Stone and Junkyo Bell found this card on an old COK sealed Booster and I think that goes in the deck perfect, lot of times I have TONS of creatures and only attack with Gisela so, BOOM.

Never thought about Endless Horizons I'll give it a try. Staff of Nin, Ghostly Prison and Tamiyo's Journal are Actually on my "Acquire List" haha.

Took off the Sacred Cat too and put on Forsake the Worldly I had it on my "Interesting cards that i like but I dont know if are REALLY good" List haha.

Im VERY thankful of your help. :) have nice Deckbuilding too!

PS:I totally NEED the Immortal Sun from RIX haha.

Hey Dr.Crust, I like this build! I like the use of flagbearer-type cards to keep the hate away from Gisela.

A few recommendations I have is that I'm confused about a couple of card choices. If this is a voltron deck, what are Porcelain Legionnaire or Lantern Kami doing to help you achieve that goal? I would recommend increasing the amount of card draw in the deck by using artifacts like Staff of Nin, Tamiyo's Journal and the newly-spoiled Immortal Sun from RIX. It may increase your curve but at 3.1 you may have some room to spare depending on your meta. If aggro is a problem, Ghostly Prison is a great card and I can see has been mentioned before.

In my Bruna deck, I'm able to keep a lot of cards in my hand by spending a lot of my mana on recurring stuff from the graveyard to get more value out of those cards. That's the goal of that deck so I run cards like Emeria Shepherd, Sun Titan and Emeria, The Sky Ruin.

Also, I highly recommend Endless Horizons it's such an excellent enchantment and helps you make sure you always get your land drops.

Happy deck building!

Hey, this looks like a great start to a commander deck, I would recommend this video if you're interested in making your deck more competitive:

The Professor highlights using your commander's strengths at a crucial part of the deck, which is why my Bruna deck revolves around recursion, angels and humans.

Flying and lifegain are great strengths for this white decks but can't always win you the game, which is why many players like to include a healthy amount of removal (both spot removal and boardwipes) and draw. White has a hard time getting draw but there are some artifacts that can help keep your card draw up such as Staff of Nin and Tamiyo's Journal.

You have a really great low curve for your deck and since this is commander you'll be a lot faster than a lot of other decks. However, since your commander costs seven, it would probably still be a good idea to cut some plains and put in some rocks -- Mind Stone and Hedron Archive are great because they can also draw you cards.

Just some thoughts, happy deck building!

I would look to add in some white ramp via Land Tax and Oreskos Explorer. Worn Powerstone and Thran Dynamo will help as well. Gotta remember how expensive your commander is. Some card draw from artifacts would be helpful too. Smuggler's Copter and Howling Mine and good. So is Staff of Nin
