Taigam, Sidisi's Hand Discussion
3 days ago
This is my first commander deck I got a few months back and have built it up slowly but am in dire need of help finishing it. I know it is slow and probably bad but I like it and it suits me just fine. I like how it can focus on the graveyard but the only strategies I have for it is the Duskmantle Guildmage and Mindcrank set and the Sphinx's Tutelage. Any help is appreciated.

I thoroughly enjoy the thematic innovation of this deck. While I do think Dragonlord Silumgar may be the better commander choice for this deck, I feel like there's a missed opportunity with Taigam, Sidisi's Hand. Either way, +1 from me!

Regoober, I’ll have to add Crux of Fate to the sideboard for now. I’ll swap stuff around, if there needs to be elementals of removal and control spells. Thanks for checking out the build! Hopefully, I can brew this up to be something big.
skoobysnackz, thanks for the +1. The deck has been extremely fun in a trial base setting, so far. As for Taigam, Sidisi's Hand and Search for Azcanta Flip. They both have the potential to be added. I like the top deck filtering they both provide and helps put auras in the graveyard. I’ll have to give them a shot. Thanks again!

I'm a big fan of this! looks like a lot of fun. Would Taigam, Sidisi's Hand fit in here? He digs three cards deep every turn and puts your auras directly into the graveyard. Search for Azcanta Flip seems to me like it could fit a similar role too.

Golgari Grave-Troll + Life from the Loam + Stinkweed Imp all great means for self milling with dredge. Liliana, Death's Majesty, Living Death, Command Beacon would be really good additions. You have almost no means to sacrifice you own creatures to recur their effects, which is a key component to golgari/sultai. Whisper, Blood Liturgist + Diabolic Intent + Scourge of Nel Toth + Razaketh, the Foulblooded + Eater of Hope are great means for using the etb effect creatures to be able to re-use them again from grave. Replace Taigam, Sidisi's Hand with Sultai Ascendancy because it's pointless to skip your draw step, you never want to exile cards form your graveyard, and it's cheaper. Pelakka Wurm, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, Rune-Scarred Demon, Journey to Eternity Flip, Pattern of Rebirth, The Mending of Dominaria, Birthing Pod, Mimic Vat, Nim Deathmantle, Sword of Feast and Famine, Boseiju, Who Shelters All, Demonic Tutor; all should be considered.

Wellp, it's been a while and a few more cards have been swapped in and out!
Muldrotha has been absolutely top-tier. If it weren't for it's disgusting level of popularity (I prefer to be a bit of a Hipster in that sense), I probably would have re-tooled the deck specifically for her as the commander over Sidisi! But even in the 99, they've been amazingly powerful- Taigam, Sidisi's Hand ended up getting cut for it. Despite the removal of the flavour, I really preferred the idea of a third Crucible rather than simply replacing it.
Void Winnower went in for a while, but quickly came back out as it was closing out games almost TOO well, and my opponents were not enjoying playing against it in any way, shape, or form. Perhaps if my playgroup ends up powering up their decks a little bit more, he'll find his way back in the deck.

So to take full advantage of Muldrotha, you need to STACK your deck with self mill and reanimate cards (in case Muldrotha isn't in play). I made a Sidisi, Brood Tyrant zombie reanimate deck (Sidisi's Zombies) if you want to check it out. Here are some that may help you: Paranoid Delusions, Apocalypse Demon, Avatar of Woe, Champion of Stray Souls, Havengul Lich, Pharika's Mender, Taigam, Sidisi's Hand, Jarad's Orders, Rise from the Grave, Vigor Mortis, Grim Return, Fated Return, Sultai Ascendancy, Deadbridge Chant, Svogthos, the Restless Tomb.
Hope you find this helpful!

Last_Laugh Thanks! and I like the feel of your deck as well. I ended up stealing a few things and realized I could fit in a nice counter creature package by just cutting 2 cards. As for the other suggestions I dont really want to run that many non permanents and if I had to run any more I would put in Rite of Consumption and Essence Harvest. I have looked at Life from the Loam when I was building the deck and it just doesnt do enough since you dont really care where your lands are and there are better cards that fill the dredge factor like Taigam, Sidisi's Hand and Stinkweed Imp who also is a great blocker. Bear Umbra and Sword of Feast and Famine both fit a more aggressive deck like yours and I dont really care if I attack or not unless my Jarad gets exiled. Diabolic Intent is nice but and would fit ok but just no room for another tutor. Pernicious Deed has been in and out of this deck more times than I can count and I have decided that it just slows me down too much to recast everything when I dont really care what they have on their board unless its graveyard hate and also puts a target on my head more then there already is haha. All in all though thanks for the suggestions since they made me take a step back and put a few new things in!
