Tymna the Weaver Discussion

Drawing from JohnnyCrass' Tasigur Stax decklist:
Hoping to provide some constructive feedback to make the deck more competitive. :)
Sorry for replying to you here! I wanted my comments to be public enough to possibly generate discussion. Twitter's character limit, however, makes this type of commentary a little tricky.
So, first of all, I want to say that I like the general direction you're going with the decklist. is arguably the strongest combination of colours in Commander and provides a lot of tools to build stax decks with (even in the absence of hatebears). There's a few structural issues with your deck I can identify right off the bat that I hope don't discourage you too much:
- Tasigur, the Golden Fang doesn't provide much to a stax deck as the general: Typically you want your Commander to help break the symmetry of most taxing and permanent-hating cards by generating some kind of recurring value or by serving as an asymmetrical lock piece in their own right. Good examples of this principle include: Derevi, Empyrial Tactician who is able to tap or untap lands under Winter Orb, Nath of the Gilt-Leaf who is able to hate on opponents' hands and generate value in the form of elf tokens or Leovold, Emissary of Trest who is an absurdly powerful, one-sided lock piece. Tasigur, the Golden Fang gets halfway there by being able to provide value over time but this ability is extremely overcosted (particularly when paired with resource-denying stax effects) and puts too much of the decision-making in your opponents' hands for an archetype like stax (which tends to hate on the entire table simultaneously). Ultimately, Tasigur, the Golden Fang really wants to be played as a more traditional control deck with the ability to grind value and reuse specific answers almost on-demand through political maneuvering with a combo win to back it up. You might want to consider running Thrasios, Triton Hero partnered with Tymna the Weaver instead to basically replicate Tasigur, the Golden Fang while also gaining another powerful, efficient draw engine and access to hatebears for additional stax effects. If you really want to stick to (and a lot of the really fun prison effects like The Abyss don't tend to play well with hatebears anyway) then I personally think Sidisi, Brood Tyrant makes for a very interesting, fun and atypical Opposition stax commander with the potential to assemble neat combos like Mesmeric Orb with Basalt Monolith for infinite tokens and something like Earthcraft to help produce a resource asymmetry. This doesn't mean you should give up on Tasigur, the Golden Fang, however. How to break parity is just an important consideration to make when building any stax deck.
- Your taxing/lock effects aren't particularly synergistic: Running effects like Thorn of Amethyst generally demands a particular type of deck construction to insure that they are hurting others more than they hurt you. You also want to be able to start playing stax pieces early and continuously to prevent opponents from breaking out of your lock. Your deck currently runs a high density of noncreature spells for which you end up having to pay more mana. This is extremely undesirable because your deck should be the most capable of playing from underneath your assorted lock pieces. The Doomsday package, for example, becomes a lot less powerful with a couple of tax effects on the board and it becomes extremely risky with something like Arcane Laboratory out. Also, you aren't hating on many types of mana production that you easily could be such as creature-based mana (e.g. Birds of Paradise) using a card like Cursed Totem or lands using Winter Orb. In a nutshell, I can identify a few too many specific anti-synergies and I can't really identify an especially cohesive resource denial plan. If you want to discuss specific cards and interactions in greater depth, please hit us up on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/TeamTurnThree/
- Finally, you should consider the average casting cost of your cards: stax decks are not like storm decks in that they don't need to play a critical mass of spells rapidly in order to produce a win. That said, resource denial is rarely entirely asymmetrical and, as such, it's important to play a pretty lean deck if you are committed to the strategy. Again, breaking parity (which I referred to as "creating a resource asymmetry") needs to be your goal at every level. You should strongly consider cutting some of your more expensive spells in favor of stuff that will help you produce more resources than opponents or, alternatively, help you set up a board state more favorable to your shenanigans more quickly. Things like Carpet of Flowers or more mana rocks.
Again, feel free to message us on Facebook if you'd like to discuss any of these points in greater depth. We easily could--just had to keep it relatively brief on account of time constraints! Note that these suggestions are really in the context of a particular competitive EDH meta that we're used to and may not be the best advice for your specific playgroup. That said, we're always excited to discuss Commander strategy and theory. And thanks so much for checking out the videos! :)
Thanks so much for watching,

For this deck? I suppose Tymna the Weaver or Ravos, Soultender could synergize mildly with the theme, but I don't believe that another partner is wholly necessary. I'd look into what the other colors offer (whether there's some sweet card/s that you're itching to add) to decide if a partner yields enough incentive to add another color.

Personally I'm running a token deck partnering Tana, the Bloodsower and Tymna the Weaver which I think are the better commanders. Tana provides a solid win condition and Tymna provides a constant source of card advantage which is a big deal to have on such a low CMC commander.

Is the Hermit Druid -> Angel of Glory's Rise package the definitive best combo engine to run with Thrasios, or is it just as viable to instead modify ShaperSavant's Food Chain Tazri list and run that combo package instead? I figured that swapping out the allies for Laboratory Maniac and Walking Ballista as win cons could work just as well.

Sticking with named characters here: Fumiko the Lowblood,Rakka Mar, Exava, Rakdos Blood Witch, Tymna the Weaver, Sheoldred, Whispering One, Masako the Humorless and Sakiko, Mother of Summer are all ladies I have enjoyed playing with in EDH. I think all of them fit your general strategy fairly well as well.

Wouldn't Tymna the Weaver combo better as a commander with Kydele?
Since you are running both Archeomancer and Ghostly Flicker, add a Palinchron for infinite mana (Great Whale and Peregrine Drake are the budget options). They also go well with Eldrazi Displacer and Deadeye Navigator.
I'd stick with the ETB/flicker and Reanimator plan. Sounds really powerful, and decks like Roon have prove it right. Mulldrifter is pretty good for that deck, and Shriekmaw can be very helpful. Try to cut the creatures that don't have a ETB ability unless they are vital for the deck. Also, add more creatures with ETB that searches for lands, like Wood Elves or Solemn Simulacrum.

Thank you all for the suggestions. I will have to pass on the Ajani, Caller of the Pride. I could just use his -3 ability off the bat to do slap some face around. One of the easiest things to do with this deck are drop Kokusho, the Evening Star and keep recurring him. I do like Tymna the Weaver. Will defiantly need to fit in here somewhere. Thanks.
