Tana, the Bloodsower Discussion

I took out Bident of Thassa , Coastal Piracy , and Edric, Spymaster of Trest . Let me know if I am still missing some. I also noticed Tana, the Bloodsower says combat damage so I changed the description and will likely remove some or all of the cards that simply provide the ability to tap for damage as that was the main reason they were in.

What if you could have both?

Yidris, Maelstrom Weilder: there are some equipment that are treasure based so a mild voltron theme could be a thing, giving you an additional wincon via Cmdr dmg, while also cascading into your other treasure spells.

Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper or Reyhan, Last of the Abzan and Kraum, Ludevic's Opus or Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist : Ikra offers some life gain, though looking through treasure related creatures a majority are even if not top heavy. Reyhan would require some +1 counter devotion I think. Both U/R partners offer card draw in a different way.

Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix or Thrasios, Triton Hero and Vial Smasher the Fierce : Considering there are ways to draw cards off of treasures it could be viable. Thrasios on the other hand is a mana sink that can ramp/net cards. Vial Smasher is just a bit of fun that give you the colors you need.

Silas Renn, Seeker Adept & Tana, the Bloodsower : Silas could be good with an artifact heavy deck. Tana I think serves only for colors... unless you can sacrifice the saps for treasures.

ZendikariWol on Favorite Voltron Commander and why?

I actually LOVE playing Zurgo as a political piece. My fav voltron is kinda tough to say, but Tana, the Bloodsower with Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa or Akiri, Line-Slinger or Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder or Silas Renn, Seeker Adept , all good partner combos.

But honestly? The slot for my favorite voltron commander, if only it were legendary, is easily Cephalid Constable . This desperately underrated card should, in my opinion, appear in any voltron deck that can run it. I have ended so many games with this card and a good ol' Aether Tunnel . Throw some pump enchantments on that baby and watch 'em all concede.

mrdehring thanks for checking out the deck im not a big fan of Tana, the Bloodsower the idea is to kill your enemys without the creature attacks i want creatures that enter the BF and do something like the ones i have.

I do like the delve spells i might consider the Bedlam Reveler .

You mention that you are using Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper just to add green mana. If you don't really use her for the life gain I might suggest you use Tana, the Bloodsower . The few extra chump blockers might be helpful and occasionally you may make a small army.

I see a lot of X spells here I imagine that is to take full advantage of Vial Smasher the Fierce , but you also mention that you cmc is a bit high. Delve is a good answer to this problem, cards like Tasigur's Cruelty and Dead Drop can be cast for only one mana. I see you have Murderous Cut , but see what else fits your style.

You seem creature light Bedlam Reveler and Ancient Stone Idol might be nice, both have reduced costs and the idol has flash so you can always play it when someone else is being attacked.

Baloth Cage Trap is also a way to cheat mana costs and make a creature. A few other trap cards might help bring down the cost as well. Needlebite Trap and Nemesis Trap are fun depending on your playgroup.

First of all, it doesn't need to be voltron. I can go wide with enchanted creatures too. Still, I want to make an enchantment voltron deck but I don't know which commander I want to use. Here's who I'm considering so far:

Tuvasa the Sunlit

Estrid, the Masked

Tana, the Bloodsower plus Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker

Zurgo Helmsmasher

Ruhan of the Fomori

Any of that cycle of legendary dragons (probably Dromar, the Banisher, Rith, the Awakener, Vorosh, the Hunter, Numot, the Devastator)

Storm Crow

Of course, new additions are welcome if you can make a convincing claim for them, but note that I play in a fairly noncompetitive meta, so decks that want to win immediately and shut out all interaction are off limits.

Tana, the Bloodsower & Tymna the Weaver is better, abuse Tana with Skullclamp, and win through card advantage and Birthing Pod.

If you want non combo, sans blue aggro that works in a cEDH environment, Tymna the Weaver+Tana, the Bloodsower blood Stax seems like a decent fit.
