Tymna the Weaver Discussion

Given the state of cEDH at the moment and the shake up that has been Thassa's Oracle, there is a feeling that cEDH has kind of become "solved" in its current state (There's a good deck update here - have a read).
So with this all said and done, since the most competitive lists are now moving to fish hulk as a primary win condition, does this mean that Thrasios, Triton Hero + Tymna the Weaver is still the best commander(s) for the deck? What about Najeela, the Blade-Blossom?
My thoughts for Najeela over Thrasios are this:
Fish hulk doesn't rely on infinite mana, meaning that including infinite mana loops as a backup strategy means a heavier reliance on mana rocks and dorks (and thus card spaces).
Since Najeela is basically a 2 card combo with a bunch of cards already (with one of those peices in the CZ) most lists already take advantage of the forbidden tutors (i.e. Demonic Consultation and the like). In addition to this, they also leverage creature tutors (to get derevi) meaning more value options per tutor.
Najeela gives you access to red, not only allowing you to swap Blood Pet for Wild Cantor (small gains) but also making the deck hardier against Blood Moon type effects since at worst you can still cast your commander and turn sideways. Also gives access to an assortment of red and R/x cards.
Having a single commander means an additional card slot in the deck. It's not much, but every bit counts.
While Thrasios can provide good card advantage even outside of combo (4 mana draw a card is still decent) and Tymna can potentially open provide constant advantage (though mileage may vary), is Najeela actually the better fish hulk commander? Thoughts?

Its cool you like building decks, but this is not really competitive. Its a good deck, and you've certainly got some of the correct tech in here, but it really is a waste of my time and yours when you mislabel shit. Its cool you're building on a budget, but don't tag it as cEDH. Simple as.
Land base is fine for budget. Obviously it extends with fetches and Underground Sea if no budget. Your mana rock base is pretty unfortunate too, as you don't have any of the good 0 or 1 CMC accelerators.
Running Labman + Pact as your wincon in Yuriko seems strange. Yes you're getting additional draws off Yuriko triggers, but why don't you build a different deck if you're interested in a pact combo? Especially since the partner commanders lend themselves so well to this strategy. You could be running Tymna the Weaver + any blue partner and be getting much better draws with better overall card quality. You're missing the Draco + Emrakul package that makes Yuriko an actual competitive deck, and you're missing all the topdeck manipulation pieces that allow you to wipe the board with Yuriko triggers. Your lack of ninjas also means you're failing to get all the Yuriko triggers you would want anyways, and the triggers you do get aren't going to be very effective.
Your creatures are all over the place. Even if you don't have the full ninja suite (they are really not expensive at all), you still need to prioritize evasive creatures to get Yuriko ninjutsu. Benthic Biomancer is a cut. Foulmire Knight is a cut. Universal Automaton is arguably a cut, but it is a ninja. If you aren't going to slot the ninjas, at least get evasive 1 drop creatures for ninjutsu.
You have almost 0 topdeck manipulation. Tutors that go to top are a must for Yuriko triggers. Personal Tutor Mystical Tutor Vampiric Tutor Imperial Seal . Even cantrips or draws that manipulate topdeck are going to be good here. Brainstorm is an absolute must, and its shocking you don't already run. Other topdeck cantrips like Ponder Preordain or Serum Visions can set up big Yuriko triggers, even if you can't afford the MVP Sensei's Top or Scroll Rack.
You run a lot of dead draws, like Arcane Adaptation and Unnatural Selection . If you just ran a ninja in those spots, you wouldn't need those cards. Even spamming your creatures into ninjas, you aren't going to get very good triggers off Yuriko because you run no high CMC bombs to take advantage of the triggers, and no topdeck manipulation. Its easier to kill off of 3 triggers that do 15 damage than it is off of 15 triggers that do 3 damage. You're far more likely to get 3 triggers in than get 15.
This is not a competitive deck mate. It has a long way to go. Thanks for posting, welcome to tappedout, tag your shit appropriately and we'll both have a more pleasant day.

No to Emmara Tandris . I've built that one befor. It's not very good.
There's a player with a Marath, Will of the Wild token deck in my group. He tends to go infinite all the time. But if that's your thing go for it.
I'm sure what ever you do with Yarok, the Desecrated will be very good, but no white.
And of course I'm all in on Iroas, God of Victory

So I am now looking at the following
Thanks for all the ideas!

I run a casual list with Tymna the Weaver and Tana, the Bloodsower which does a pretty good job of pumping out saprolings. It's not a dedicated token list, however it spews them onto the battlefield pretty well (deck is Don't be Blue).
If you want a lot of tokens, Ghave, Guru of Spores is going to be one of your best bets. Saprolings have a lot of support and he enables them well, especially when paired with token doubling effects. You will need a lot of dice though.

1) You have 40 lands. If you keep Exploration while raising draw power, you will see far more use from it. Its a really good card, you can cut down to 36 lands and add 4 draw effects and I bet you will see higher performance. Consider Sylvan Library Dark Confidant Phyrexian Arena Runic Armasaur Tymna the Weaver or any handful of others. You can cut all the way down to 34 lands if you add some strong draw pieces.
2) Najeela has some easy built in combos, one of which you run in Sword of Feast and Famine . Also check out Nature's Will and Druids' Repository . These cards allow Najeela to win all by herself once you hit a critical mass. They're very good in any Najeela deck.
3) If you're playing superfriends, you need more ways to clear board or more ways to stop attacks. Consider wipes like Pyroclasm Whipflare Toxic Deluge Wrath of God Supreme Verdict . Consider no attack pieces like Ensnaring Bridge Ghostly Prison Meekstone Silent Arbiter Magus of the Moat . Having some more of these will help with space for your PW to power up.
4) I'd cut some of the larger spells you run. Expropriate is nice but its going to be a dead draw if its in your hand for first 6-8 turns of game. Same with Primevals' Glorious Rebirth . It might be worthwhile to keep Ulamog.

Another good way to do it if you are willing to be a little bit spikey is to play anything that allows for infinite recasts of a creature or spell such as Palinchron + High Tide , Temur Sabertooth + Dockside Extortionist , or Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal . Remember that you don't need to be strictly orzhov to be an extortionist, you just need either black or white.
That being said, if you want to be strictly orzhov I would suggest Tymna the Weaver + Ravos, Soultender so you can keep putting cards in your hand to keep casting and extorting. I would also suggest low cmc fliers and hard to block creature so you can keep drawing off tymna and casting more to extort more.

Hugomarink - Mindblade Render is a budget choice for Dark Confidant . Comes out the same turn as Dark Confidant (same CMC), has draw potential on the same turn (the turn after it is played), and on a minor note is a good swinger for Tymna the Weaver . Those are the main reasons I chose this over, say, a Phyrexian Arena .
