entheogeneral on Tier 1 Stax General?

5 hours ago

Oh shit, so the only Tier 1 commander I can use with Stax to be considered Tier 1 would be Teferi, Temporal Archmage?Also, what deck can I make around Zur to be considered Tier 1. I'm really trying to level up

JaceTheSwagSculptor on Tier 1 Stax General?

9 hours ago

I would recommend looking at the EDH Tier list. The only true "Tier 1" stax general is Teferi, Temporal Archmage. Your next option is Brago, King Eternal at Tier 1.5.

metalmagic: They are both long dead but I still hope that someday they give them their just due like they did withTeferi, Temporal Archmage and Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury.

besides those it would be neat to get an ink-eyes or a Marrow-Gnawer planeswalker

A Teferi, Temporal Archmage wouldn't be bad considering it can mana ramp and add extra draw power. Also I think a Freed from the Real would be good for those cards like Arcanis the Omnipotent, Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind, and Jace's Archivist

I would suggest The Chain Veil. I just got it for my Atraxa deck because I found out that it can set up a combo with Teferi, Temporal Archmage and one or two mana artifacts. Teferi can untap four permanents with his -1, so you would tap mana rock, tap the Veil to allow your planeswalkers to use a loyalty ability. Then Teferi would untap both the mana rock and the Veil to do it again until you ult all planeswalkers and use their other abilities as many times as needed.

What is the best way to use Teferi, Temporal Archmage

is it as a commander or in the deck as a regular planeswalker (and if it's in a deck as a regular planeswalker what type of deck does he shine the most in other than superfriends atraxa stuff)

PookandPie on Mono Coloured Deck Choices

I mean, if you're just wanting a strong mono color deck, you've got Arcum Dagsson and Teferi, Temporal Archmage as combo options. Paradox Engine Selvala is really fun, as well. Yisan is probably the only other one cheaper than these, but his deck gets noticeably worse in non-combo metas (because there tends to be a higher amount of creature interaction in those meta games. Arcum now needs 1 turn, while Yisan generally needs to be uninterrupted for several which really only happens when everyone is set on combo plans, otherwise the Yisan player tends to Strip Mine himself in order to keep the guy safe as everyone flings their removal at him, one after another).

Arcum and Teferi both are relatively cheap to build and absurdly easy to highly tune. Teferi can do stax quite easily, and then combo out and win via The Chain Veil. Dagsson, on the other hand, just needs to be cast and then you win the turn you play him if he has haste, or you win the following turn.

Both require expensive mana rocks to be fully optimized (IE, Tazri/Animar/Prossh metas), though you can forego those if your meta isn't that hot and heavy.

Best options for creature toolbox is clearly Yisan. For combo, you've got Arcum and green Selvala with Paradox Engine. For reanimation you have Chainer, Geth, etc.. For stax, you have Teferi Planeswalker. Though, these are what I'd consider to be the good options, so if you're wanting something that's different for the sake of being different that's a whole different matter entirely, lol.

It really depends on what is fun for you. I, quite obviously, prefer combo or control style decks and I've made both Arcum, Teferi, and Yisan. Hell, I still play my Arcum list at my LGS.

If you're looking for reanimation, Chainer, Dementia Master is pretty great at it and does surprisingly well at 'competitive' tables. This is, of course, using the understanding that you mean competitive to be, "Players run the best casual cards they can" and not, "The meta is Food Chain Tazri, Doomsday/Ad Nauseam Zur/Leovold/Jeleva Storm, Arcum Dagsson, and Teferi, Temporal Archmage." If that's the case and your games have the capability to end on turn 3-4, don't play a mono color Commander that isn't Teferi Planeswalker, Arcum Dagsson, Selvala, Heart of the Wilds, Yisan, the Wanderer Bard, or black Sidisi. Other ones like Azami, baby Jace, Baral Storm might be able to steal wins if you keep other players from going off so that you have ample time to win, yourself.

Anyway, if the meta is just good players running good cards, then Chainer, Dementia Master is a lot of fun. I run him a lot against things like either Selvala, Yisan, Animar, Breya (non Doomsday, non-Bomberman/Worldgorger), both Sidisi, Skithyrx, Edric, Brago, Gitrog, etc., and it does quite reasonably against them (with Daretti and Breya being the most difficult since they care little about creatures). Lots of people just don't know how to deal with the stupid amounts of creature hate Chainer enables, and I primarily win by looping Gray Merchant of Asphodel.

My deck is here, though it's probably not the most optimized Chainer deck: The Chainer That Binds.

It's important to note that when someone pulls out their Thrasios, Zur, Tazri, etc., basically anything that can win before turn 5, I put away Chainer and grab my own Zur, Breya, or Arcum decks (or maybe see if I can get lucky with Ghave). So, if your meta truly is competitive players and decks, don't seek out reanimate shenanigans in mono color because there's a lot you won't be able to stop, and you'd be better off looking to Meren or Karador since you have some big combo leans there.
