Gilady089 as stated before The First Sliver is a better combo piece for Food Chain then both Niv-Mizzet Reborn or General Tazri He belongs there.

Food chain First sliver combo Show

About Urza, Lord High Artificer . As of the state if he should belong in tier 1 is up for debate but you can not deny that he's is better then Teferi, Temporal Archmage not saying that Teferi is bad, Urza, Lord High Artificer is simple faster. Don't Make the same mistake I did , do your research or read the comments before this one.

Hey thegigibeast, ShaperSavant and LabManiac_Sigi,

thanks for updating the list! I definitely agree with moving Thrasios / Tymna into their own tier. I would also appreciate a Thrasios ban for a healthier Metagame.

With Tymna, the "centralizing mini-game" you mentioned isn't that problematic in my opinion, as the strategy of abusing the low creature count in cEDH is quite a common thing (looking at Edric, Spymaster of Trest , Najeela, the Blade-Blossom or even Tana, the Bloodsower ) and is actually contributing to the diversity of the format.

I would like to hint on the lack of the old Tier 1,5 category. To me there are some Commanders that just don't belong into the same tier. For example, a Niv-Mizzet Reborn + Food Chain Strategy with a consistent T3 win would absolutely rank up higher than a fairly inconsistent Godo, Bandit Warlord Strategy around Stax and Helm of the Host ... To me, that also counts for Teferi, Temporal Archmage , Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge , Tasigur, the Golden Fang or Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder . Please consider to add that category again.

To conclude my comment I would like to recommend moving Azami, Lady of Scrolls from High Power into the Competitive Category. I think that Deck can compete with other Mono U Strategys (Baral, Kefnet - not being as strong as Teferi). In my lokal game store I played several times with Azami in the EDH-Tournament against multiple other cEDH-Decks like Breakfast Hulk, Blood Pod, Shimmer Zur, Gitrog... and I still have to lose a single game with it. While it's a very subjective impression, it just feels wrong to me to see it in Tier 3.

Davriel, Contract Killer

Legendary Creature - Human Shade

Shadow (This creature can block or be blocked by only creatures with shadow.)

Whenever Davriel, Contract Killer deals combat damage to an opponent you may sacrifice a creature. If you do, that opponent also sacrifices a creature. Then put a contract counter on Davriel, Contract Killer. Then if Davriel, Contract Killer has four or more contract counters on him, exile him and return him to the battlefield transformed.

Let's make a deal...


Davriel, He Who Binds

Legendary Planeswalker - Davriel

+1 Put a contract counter on a permanent you control and a permanent your opponent controls. Those permanents become Shadowbound (If one of those permanents would be destroyed, they are both destroyed. The same is true for returning to their owner's hand, being moved into their libraries, being exiled, being sacrificed, etc.)

-1 Choose one: Destroy, Exile, or Sacrifice a permanent you control with a contract counter on it. You lose 3 life.

-7 Remove all contract counters from all permanents and each player sacrifice all of them. Each opponent loses life equal to the total amount of counters removed in this way and you gain that much life. If that value is 10 or more, each opponent discards their hands and you draw 5 cards.


Make an Oathbreaker that supports Superfriends (See: Ajani Unyielding , Ajani, Mentor of Heroes , Ajani, the Greathearted , Kasmina, Enigmatic Mentor , Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God , Nicol Bolas, the Arisen , Samut, the Tested , Sarkhan the Masterless , Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord , Teferi, Temporal Archmage , Tezzeret, Master of the Bridge , & Will Kenrith )

@SP3CTR3_chelts: Yeah, I even wanted to put in ol' Wrenn & Six in also as an alt for Crucible of Worlds . As for Artifact Searching, I've made a very tough decision: After all the opposition The Big 3 Baka Yarous all got, I've already removed the 2nd of these 3. Maybe their haters were right about them. I'm even contemplating removing the other two as well. Since in such a regard, you no longer need to keep searching for trash that probably won't help the whole deck at all; only those remaining 2. Considering what others said in the past, I might actually remove the other two as well. As for the CMDR change from Najeela, the Blade-Blossom back to my default Sliver Queen , My reasons stand thus:

  1. Sliver Queen is more resilient, & can make chump blockers before you block, & after any opponent declares Attackers.

  2. We have Teferi, Temporal Archmage , which all three of his abilities are great. But his Emblem, allows a Vedalken Orrery -Esque effect making potentially infinite Loyalty Abilities. I kept Chandra, Torch of Defiance in as one of her Loyalty Abilities not only gains Loyalty, but also allows Mana Ramp; but I do, realize, Jace, the Mind Sculptor , while being "The Greatest Planeswalker Card of all time" is slow, I do concur w/ this notion, but if this walker is the best since WORLDWAKE days, how the hell can one reach ultimate status before Jace can't back himself up to do a great Ult.? Back to ol' Daughter of a Dead Father that actually Survived even after Nicol Bolas "Died" (Is this true?) from having his spark forced out of him. In the right Situation, (not) Sliver Queen , she could have a Janky, but regardless infinite Spawn to strike at anyone.

  3. Don't get me wrong, Najeela is Sugoi level Awesome, but I'm fearing she might have the same flaws as Sisay, Weatherlight Captain ; though Captain Sisay is already awesome on her own. Could Sisay Numero Dos do great here as well? We already have Walkers that reach CMC7 here, but, now, the only constant is making a swarm of Walkers all w/ the same cost to search for Legends like Najeela would w/ infinite attacks. From there, though not Superfriends/Avengers CMDR Level power, Sisay #2 is a much better card than Najeela as a whole here; Once you have all 5 colors among Walkers, you might be able to search for whatever the hell you need to win. XP On the Topic of Modern Horizons, is Urza, Lord High Artificer good here as well? I don't want to add anymore cards, but ol' Urza, w/o a Spark; now means the only Walker Left in all 5 colors that can be used as a Planeswalker CMDR, is Lord Taysir of Rabiah. Regardless, This Urza is far better than the dumbass joke of a Walker from UNSTABLE; now having, basically all his abilities as Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God 's Static Ability!

Really sorry about the update. But I really want to make a High Quality Deck as well; w/ Gideon Jura Dead, & the imminent possibility that everyone wants to kill you after Gideon, Champion of Justice Literally Apocalypse 's the rest of the board (Sans your hand.). This is too risky for me to use, & as I can't find a good Gideon to use in his memory; an idiot hero who probably did more good than Gerrard Capashen brainwashed by Phyrexians as he slashed off Urza's Head, I really would like better options in that Gideons stead.

All that said, I hope you can understand my reasons behind all these changes; & that I'm trying to redeem myself to the rest of the community...

Now, If you don't mind, I am trying to rebuild my memory from what I tried to rebuild my CHAOS deck from. Just understand though, that not all such cards are truly that good. Some may be worse than others. & now I'm finishing this debate between me & the rest of this site; unlike John-117, & Thel 'Vadam (Master Chief, & The Arbiter) which one development plan was for these two to Finish the Fight together in Halo 2. Since that was canned, & Halo 5: Guardians isn't even being spoken of as even Halo fans hate that game; but what about Halo 6? Will it end the franchise for good? & what about Beyond Good & Evil 2? If the hype is real, why isn't UBISOFT developing itat even the slowest rate of progressing speed; Slower than even DUKE NUKEM: FOREVER? Fun fact! DUKE NUKEM: FOREVER isn't the worst game in the franchise; maybe you should look back in your efforts back in the GBA days; FOREVER is at least playable, the DUKE NUKEM game for GBA is so glitched, made by an atrocious developer, & is agreed that game is just; the definition of unplayable... Same for all the rest of the trash they made.

Over & out.

First, in commander you can't have planeswalkers as commanders. Second, (I'll stop trolling now, lol) It doesn't seem you have a budget here so why not add Misty Rainforest , Scalding Tarn , Flooded Strand , and Polluted Delta for the extra shuffle effects and minimal deck thinning. Some other possible additions: Windfall , Tolarian Winds , and Scroll Rack . Oh yeah and don't forget in commander we can use planeswalker as commanders (shout out to Teferi, Temporal Archmage ).

Cymorg, I pretty recently started collecting very detailed data, but I can post it once I get a considerable amount, if you don’t want detail, I can just tell you that I currently have a 22-8 win to loss ratio (currently on a 7 win streak mostly against one of my friends who has a nearly optimized Teferi, Temporal Archmage deck).
