Veitanah on Vampire Tribal Commander

I would try to add some more red cards personally to have a more even mana spread as you don't want to ever be locked out of any cards unless you want to only splash red (although red has lots of good cards such as seen below)

Creatures - Captivating Vampire , Tajic, Legion's Edge , Taurean Mauler , Solemn Simulacrum , Divinity of Pride

The Lieges - Balefire Liege , Deathbringer Liege , Ashenmoor Liege

Opponent Creatures ETB Tapped - Authority of the Consuls or Urabrask the Hidden

Removal & Instants - Terminate , Wear / Tear , Vandalblast , Wild Ricochet , Pyroblast

Tutors - Diabolic Tutor , Diabolic Revelation

Boardwipes - Life's Finale , In Garruk's Wake , Decree of Pain

THE WITTLE - Purphoros, God of the Forge

Enchantments - Warstorm Surge , Dictate of the Twin Gods , Curse of Bloodletting , Anger , Impact Tremors , Outpost Siege , Fervor , GREAT CARD FOR YOU Shared Animosity ,

Equips - Any of the swords but Sword of Feast and Famine & Sword of Light and Shadow in particular

The Kitty

This is Sassy. She's extremely sick right now, with what vets think is Toxoplasmosis - but they need to do an MRI and bloodwork to be sure, and she also needs hospitalization because she isn't eating. :(

I need help paying these vet bills, so the above cards and everything in my binder are for sale! Make me an offer on things in my binder, and please comment if you message me because I don't always get notifications. Thanks!

I'll ship under $15 in a PWE unless otherwise specified. For >$15 or if you want tracking, please add $3 to your total. Payment through Paypal upfront - I have a long history of successful trades on here.

Edit: I can also take a few commissions for alters. I can do simple replacement art (adding details) and border extensions with high-quality acrylics. Example, example. Have some more recent stuff somewhere, too. Email me to chat about prices & details!

Yes i want to stay Mardu as everyone eles is either doing Neheb commander (at least in area) or angrath oathbreaker. And i fully admit that red and black are needed but even if you don add the white minotaurs having the boros combat tricks and support does alot of work and while not need having reusable grave recursion with Athreos, God of Passage , Sword of Light and Shadow , Debtors' Knell , and Alesha, Who Smiles at Death (though she only hits 7 of my creatures). and maybe Haunted Crossroads means you can attack without worrying about removal other than exile. and i guess this deck is less aggro and more mid to late game combat and kill

Hey man!

Before we get into this, I just want to say that if I sound like a know-it-all and a dick, it's toatally unintentional and I apologize for it. Also, I have never played Jeskai in EDH, so please take my suggestions with a grain of salt.

It's kind of hard to find a good Jeskai Commander that is based around creatures, so I think you have two options:

Of course, you could have both in your deck, and switch them around as the meta/playgroup changes, but it's best to choose one now. I'll provide options for both.


The ramp and land package wil be roughly the same, so I'll start with that. I use TCC's manabase template, but feel free to change it.

Ramp

Lands

TCC's template for a manabase is this, but feel free to change it to fit your budget etc.

  • 3 OG Duals (Can be replaced by Check, Scry or Man lands)

  • 3 Shock

  • 3 Zend-Onslought Fetch (Can be replaced by Panoramas)

  • 15 total basics and utility (9/6 split)

  • 3 Filter Lands

  • 3 Pain Lands

  • 4 Any Colour Lands

  • 1 Tri Land

  • 3 Other Lands(more utility, duals, Lairs, etc)


Here's a deck that I drafted if you want Shu Yun, Silent Tempest as your commander. I left three slots for the cards already in your deck


Here's the draft deck if you want Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker and Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder as your commanders


That ends my very long post. Feel free the change anything you want about the decks I made, as they are only a first draft.

Good Luck,

Hex

Sword of Tempered Truths

Artifact - Equipment

Equip

Equipped creature gains +2/+2, protection from blue, and "whenever this creature deals combat damage to a creature, you may return target non-land permanent to owner's hand."


kind of a mono-colored version of the Sword of Light and Shadow series, with a creature based trigger rather than plaer. make another color's sword.

Thanks for the suggestion! I agree with the meta having quite a bit of removal. It is always recommended to not overextend. In Edgar decks, keeping some creature spells in your hand is easy since you get value out of the tokens.

In a similar train of thought for a solution, I figured that I like to recast creatures to get the Edgar effect. The support cards I play to mitigate board wipes and to help with recursion are:

(Although I prefer to use the following offensively)

And of course in the sideboard, if expecting a removal heavy meta:

Ultimately, I am opting for items that can have utility outside of just board wipe evasion and have more functionality.
