Tana, the Bloodsower Discussion

ZendikariWol on Enchantment Voltron Commanders

3 weeks ago

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.

Well Animar has the most potential to get broken. Casting eldrazi titans for is pretty devastating.

Muldrotha hypercompetitive is usually stay but that's really no fun. You can make a pretty normal self-mill + creatures-that-sacrifice-themselves for cheap and mine runs pretty well.

Krenko and Scarab God are both decent tribal pieces. I would say Krenko is scarier, but zombies may well be a stronger tribe.

Alesha is not as good as other small-creatures-matter commander combos. Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa + either Silas Renn, Seeker Adept, Vial Smasher the Fierce, or Tana, the Bloodsower are good. Ezuri, Claw of Progress is also worth noting.

As for Vial Smasher and Ludevic... I don't really see where that would go? What would you do with it?

In general, I would say that the biggest potential competitiveness, especially in a slower meta, is Animar. He just has the potential to get big threats out very quickly.

I second Marath, Will of the Wild, by far my favorite and very versatile.

If you're looking for something more Timmy-ish, I would go for Rith, the Awakener. There's also Tana, the Bloodsower + Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa

UlmBurger on Hatebear toolbox -WB cEDH-

Wouldnt having a partner just make the deck better? Black white doesnt have enough gas in my opinion to actually win at a competitive table. Furthermore Tana, the Bloodsower and Thrasios, Triton Hero just overall offer more gas in the comandzone. On top of that a full hatebear strategy often struggles at a competitive table due to its ability just to get blown out by decks that can combo and especially in this build you cant interact at instant speed reliably with other decks at the table. Id suggest either adding another commander or change to a more proactive commander if you want orzov.

kingquark No problem!

Krosan Grip is great due to the split second clause as it's pretty relevant. Beast Within is generally an amazing card, but because you have access to other colors their are other cards that do it so much better such as Assassin's Trophy, Abrupt Decay, Maelstrom Pulse, and Vindicate.

Another card you can maybe run is Orim's Thunder.

Cards I would consider cutting would be: Shamanic Revelation (Too slow), Woolly Thoctar, Voltaic Brawler, Moltensteel Dragon, Herald of Torment, Bloodbraid Elf, and Accorder Paladin (All of them are a bit underwhleming in terms of value and a bit vanilla).

Some adjustment for budget I would consider are: Iroas, God of Victory, Gisela, Blade of Goldknight , Dauntless Escort, Forgotten Ancient, Shalai, Voice of Plenty, Mirror Entity, Taurean Mauler, Hydra Omnivore (Hidden tech, it also does additional damage to the player you chosen!), Tana, the Bloodsower (Also makes additional tokens due to hitting two players!), Urabrask the Hidden, Gahiji, The Honored One, Hero of Bladehold, and Hanweir Garrison.

Hope that gives an idea that could help!

Q: When no other player helps to handle BloodPod or Breakfast Hulk, they are very hard to beat. (If you have some suggestions, write it down)

A: These are pretty much uphill battles but there are still things you can do to impede their plan.

BloodPod runs as many or even more dorks than us, which accelerates into a powerful game plan. I see that you have Caustic Caterpillar and Nature's Claim to take care of problematic enchantments(Natural State can be pretty good in a fast meta), so other things that you could consider are Minister of Pain or Make Obsolete to wipe out their dorks. If Tymna the Weaver or Tana, the Bloodsower is giving too many problems, you can consider Vendetta(does not work on Tymna), Dismember or Assassin's Trophy.

Breakfast Hulk sometimes gets the nut draw, but that's Breakfast Hulk for you. Like Bloodpod, they also run many or even more dorks than us for ramping/colour fixing etc, so what I have mentioned for Bloodpod also works for Breakfast Hulk. An important thing to note is both of these decks are quite reliant on Tymna to generate CA if they don't get the nut draw, so stop Tymna if you must. Breakfast Hulk also folds to Contamination if they don't have a dork that generate G to get rid of it.
