TheSimikBOat: Yeah he has a name other than "Stangg Twin" in the lore, but on the token and Stangg , his name is "Stangg Twin."

Dango on Brothers Yamazaki Partner Commanders

dbpunk that would be an interesting mechanic, but I'm afraid cards like Stangg and Verix Bladewing do something very similar. I'm tending to favor the idea of a partner commander design, but I haven't the slightest clue regarding how they would work and compliment each other. Seitaro wields two swords while Shujiro wields what appears to be a battleaxe or polearm of some sort. Perhaps that could be relevant to their abilities? Give Seitaro double-strike and give Shujiro something like vigilance? And when they're on the field together they each get double-strike, vigilance, and haste? I feel like that wouldn't be very impactful though, and Sylvia Brightspear / Khorvath Brightflame already do that but in a better way. I'm not sure how to craft them in a relevant manner for them to both be impactful enough on the battlefield together and still remain flavorful.

Daedalus19876 I think they could be potent as partners for sure. I just don't know which direction they could be taken. Equipment and Voltron strategies can get awkward because typically Voltron aims to win via commander damage, and having two commanders for a Voltron strategy would dilute it quite a bit considering that one or the other would need to be pumped up (Unless a mechanic was introduced where they assign shared commander damage? I'm not sure, that could be a little broken). Samurai tribal as of right now is rather subpar due to the lack of relevant samurais out there, but who knows. The tribe is due to be expanded on in my opinion.

Thank you for your thoughts on this so far!

Stangg is legendary and can't be changed with Cytoshape.

If you could find a way to make him something else (no example this time since it is what took so long before since I was looking for something that could change either but not both and came up blank) the ability is still in effect since it is an ability that creates a delayed trigger and the delayed trigger is not an actual ability of Stangg. (DTAs are weird, Once created they no longer care if the objects that they are tracking still has the ability that created the DTA.)

The token is legendary and can not be changed with Cytoshape.

Even if you found a way to make the token something else (Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer for example) Stangg would still be sacrificed if the token he creates leaves the battlefield. The ability tracks the token created and doesn't care what it is named or what other statistics it has.

If I cast Stangg, get its twin token, then use Cytoshape to turn that token into a Saproling and that Saproling dies, what happens to Stangg? Does he get sacrificed or not care at all?
