Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle Discussion

hkhssweiss, Suns_Champion, I already have a Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle deck. With that being said, it's not a commander that I want to build again.


The only thing about is that I don't want to build voltron. I want to go for more of a white-weenie strategy, and with that in mind I'm thinking either Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit , Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip, or Jazal Goldmane . Thoughts?

For , I was thinking about doing the most Jank thing possible, and playing Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs pillowfort, or Etali, Primal Storm chaos, though the latter seems rather strong. Again, thoughts?

Lol no worries DrkNinja I understand your plight, Meren is one of the commanders that far exceeds the other experience commanders from the set, with the exception of Mizzix. Mizzix I believe is on par with Meren, although I will say, she is easily stopped and there are plenty of set up required with Meren. I have a long history with her.

I did read your Top 10 cards on your forum, good job on the write it, it was a good read!

@ IAmTheWraith I totally forgot about Tetsuko! Ah yes she is actually one I was also brainstorming of cuz she is definitely one of the more interesting blue commanders that is out of the norm! My other thought was playing Thada Adel, Acquisitor . I will agree for the mono red choice that Krenko is basic, it's why I chose Zada for mines. It's out of the norm, you can draw a lot of cards, also decent on budget since the cards for Zada is cheap but efficient. Might I suggest Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle for your mono , he is out of the norm, a different take on a white deck and has surprising value. Another you can consider is Eight-and-a-Half-Tails as another interesting commander for value and can be open ended to build, plus style points for being a foxy commander :P

The deck looks good so far, just a couple of things I think:

I really, really like Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle . It lets you keep your hatebears alive and functional, which is good for a deck that is going to get the brunt of removal thrown at it. I think Dragonlord Dromoka is a bit slow and mana intensive, I would swap it for Tithe Taker if you still want another of the effect.

Hidy Ho neighbor,

Really like what the deck has going on, the hatebear theme is well established, and the voltron is still prominent. Love the addition of Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle , and loving the pre release hebrew promo of Glory . But I see some things that may be better.

What are your thoughts on Teferi's Protection to add to your Sunforger package? It always seems like it's a good way to bail yourself out of a really bad spot.

I think either Blind Obedience or Kismet is reasonable. I don't think Loxodon Gatekeeper is worth it as it's a bit mana intensive.

I assume the reason Nahiri, the Harbinger is for the loot ability, but aren't things like Dawn of Hope , Chandra, Torch of Defiance , or Chandra, Flamecaller all better options?

I third Tithe Taker , the ability is really nice to have one instance of.

Rant aside, really love what you've done, I think this deck is stronger than its counterpart in many ways, and I believe it's well on its way to being optimised.

Well, if you want a good boros aggro deck, you can always just play a classic burn shell. Eidolon of the Great Revel makes burn one of the best decks in the modern format. And it's probably the best pure aggro deck.

They usually look something along the lines of this: Boros Burn

But if you want to keep a build close to this, that would be perfectly fine. Bomat Courier is a really good card, and I'm not faulting you for building around it, and although Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle is a really bad card, I think you've got a nice idea with her.

If you do want to continue with this deck style, I suggest you get a better mana base, with lands like Inspiring Vantage , Sacred Foundry , Arid Mesa , or/and Clifftop Retreat .

Lightning Bolt and Lightning Helix should be you burn spells of choice, giving you some reach to kill early creatures and go face when the opportunity to kill comes around.

Path to Exile is the premium cath-all creature removal spell in white.

If you want to continue on playing with Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle , you should probably include Faithless Looting to get some good setups with her.

Brimaz, King of Oreskos could also be pretty good, being both a cast trigger, and good card to retrun, (but you probably should't include more than 1 copy)

Same is true for Alesha, Who Smiles at Death

Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip could also be good here, at which point, you could be looking at a legit Mox Amber deck

There doesn't seem to be a combo going on... you could try doing things with Historic spells and birds

  1. Jhoira's Familiar -gets Legendary and Artifacts spells out quicker
  2. Aven Wind Mage
  3. Senate Courier
  4. Aesthir Glider
  5. Artificer's Assistant -gives you some _Scry_ action
  6. Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle

Thanks for the comment and upvote SoulSlayerKnight! I appreciate it. I like putting Dauntless Bodyguard in for 1 grace and a malice or 2. I thought about Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle and have tried it, but it is a little underpowered compared to the 4 drops I currently have. Cheers! !

Awsome deck, I have my own legendary deck similar to this as well and honestly yours is definitely and more seemingly powerful than mine. I can't offer much for feedback but I will mention a couple things I like.

  1. Those Artifact cards are legendary (no pun intended) for the creatures itself and at the same time being able to seal off and destroy non-legends are a good way to clear the board for your creatures safely. No changes needed there

  2. My only idea would be, what are your thoughts on Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle ? I currently use it in mine for MTG Arena and I gotta say, it highly benefits the cards like Malice and Grace so if one dies, teshar comes out and then bring out the knight again to keep the other knight (malice or grace) back to power. I see doubts with teshar as well for being low in attack and toughness however.

  3. Maybe if you would like some more 1 drop creatures Dauntless Bodyguard is a good one, not terribly strong, not legendary, but the ability becomes quite useful for keeping a creature with perhaps Blackblade Reforged alive.

4.All else maybe I could say is perhaps Baird, Steward of Argive . Legendary, vigilance, prevents opponets from attacking without paying mana for each one that attacks, quite useful against tokens.

Otherwise I also really enjoyed playing around with All legendaries and I hope you enjoy it just as much. It's very fun and has a basic concept thats fascinating. I'll have to remember to grab sigiled sword of valeron when I can for Arena since its powerful alongside more knights. That is when I decide to make a full knight/soldier only deck. Keep up the good work, +1 from me :)
