Sygg, River Cutthroat Discussion

BS-T on i want a sqaud deck ...

You can build Zombies in so many combinations - , , , , even just or

Merfolk could be , , , or even (Sygg, River Cutthroat but he's not a 'Lord').

You can sort of search Lords by doing something like "all merfolk" in card text on Scryfall, or "all +1".

I also just thought of or Angel Tribal - Lyra Dawnbringer, Kaalia of the Vast. is also quite angel-y but I can't think of a Lord commander that cares about angels in that combination...

Tribal is probably a good way to go for "monsters that benefit each other" - or something like +1/+1 counters? Ghave, Guru of Spores, Reyhan, Last of the Abzan, there's loads more.

Damn I love Commander lol!

Some pretty obvious cards in any UR spell-heavy deck:

  • Opt/Serum Visions. Doesn't matter which one, but at least 4 of these are really helpful. And since they say "draw a card", they even trigger Chasm Skulker. With enough of these cantrips, you can go with a lower land count, since you can dig out land when you want to.

  • Remand. Tempo play of the week. Also draws a card.

  • Isochron Scepter. Because you have a pile of instants at 2 or less mana, and you'd like to play them a lot. Just a single copy should do, or you might like 2 of them.

  • Wandering Fumarole. When you have enough lands, and are running out of cards, this gives you a way to win, and somewhere to get something out of all that mana.

. Sygg, River Cutthroat could be funny, in a deck with evasive attackers and Lightning Bolts. Isn't a horror, though.

I've noticed that that's what rogues do, when I attempted to make a deck I think I went with Sygg, River Cutthroat

Skulloelegy on Aggro EDH Commanders

A lot of commanders you can build to be aggressive, with the commander themselves being more of a supporting role for your main aggro strategy. Look at Sygg, River Cutthroat or Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist -- Their abilities could support an aggro strategy by use of politics outside of your turn, making other players attack each other for perks, keeping you alive long enough to swarm the board or go big.

i tried Sygg, River Cutthroat and feel It would have to take the Auntie's Snitch/Oona's Prowler spot when needed and could def feel the damage loss. Was usually chump blocked unless i had Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive out. Other two had flying or return to my hand so was able to do a little work when struggled with keeping Tetsuko. I'll have to try to test it again if i ever bump up to 4x Tetsuko

Have you considered rogue legendaries like Sygg, River Cutthroat and Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive? I think they could provide some added draw power and unblockability is always nice.

I feel like Sygg, River Cutthroat would work really well in here and give you some more draw power.
