Vela the Night-Clad Discussion

shadowcaster on Oona OMG

I decided to keep the Psychic Spiral, but trade out the Sickle Ripper for Vela the Night-Clad.

Kenshin72 on Vela, Mistress Of Eldrazi

I do like the idea of using Kruphix, God of Horizons as a commander but already just made a Simic deck, so I was trying to stay away from the combination for now. Yeah, Vela the Night-Clad CMC was the bane of my existence when I had her a Ninja EDH commander. I can drop the Wastes, no big issue, I would like to stay with Vela the Night-Clad as the commander.

Have you thought about using Kruphix, God of Horizons as your Commander instead? He makes it a bit easier to store mana to cast big spells. He also grants the benefit of Green ramp while keeping the Blue you are already using.

My thoughts here are, Vela the Night-Clad is really expensive. At that CMC, you should be casting Eldrazi, not wanting to cast your Commander who has no inherit protection. It would be fairly easy for an opponent to remove Vela and thus remove your Intimidate. Cost + lacking big impact ability + easy to remove = bad times.

The Black cards you are running aren't that great, there are far better options to be running in those slots in Green if you so desired the swap.

Some of the cards you're running don't look to be particularly great either, like Prophet of Distortion. I also don't see much purpose in running ANY Wastes. You should be getting all of your mana from non Basic lands, and Artifact ramp. Stuff like Sol Ring, Thran Dynamo, Mind Stone, Mana Crypt, etc.

I could make further suggestions after you tell me what you want to do.

DemonDragonJ on List of Commanders by Home ...

3 months ago

Now that WotC's Commander products are an annual product (I still refer to the format itself as Elder Dragon Highlander/EDH, because I was introduced to it by that name), I wish to make a list of all the legendary creatures, or commanders, who have appeared in those sets, by plane of origin.

I shall be including both new legendary creatures introduced in those sets, as well as previous cards that were reprinted in those sets (which includes Commander's Arsenal), but I will not include legendary creatures that have not been printed in a Commander set, even if other creatures from their plane have been in those sets. I shall first list the planes known to be home to at least one commander, alphabetically by name, and then list each commander from that plane, alphabetically by name. If a commander is from a specific region or belongs to a specific faction on that plane, I shall list that region or faction in parenthesis after their name.

What does everyone else think of this list? It took a great amount of time to write this list, so I hope that you appreciate it. I would not at all be surprised to learn that I mistakenly listed a commander's home plane as unknown, when it is actually known, so please let me know if I made any mistakes, and I also shall add new legendary creatures to this list whenever WotC releases a new Commander set.

have you considered using Vela the Night-Clad to push your ninja's through?

Lilbrudder on Sidisi, Brood Tyrant Combo

Vela the Night-Clad ends the game with food chain like Walking Ballista. I never knew it existed but it was pointed out to me last night.

TheDevicer: Seriously wtf...Vela the Night-Clad also works and to the best of my knowledge noone (including myself) has ever tried it. Lol this game never ceases to suprise me. Good call! I have been toiling so much harder than necessary with this damn combo. Since the wording is leave the battlefield and not dies the food chain combo itself will trigger vela infinitely. Her being high cc is actually ok too because it helps necrotic ooze combo, which I feel is the ideal backup combo to food chain for sidisi.

Correction: Now that SBT has 2 food chain outlets she is by far the fasest BUG combo general

Neotrup on Vela and Rite of Replication

4 months ago

Each opponent will lose 30 life, which is different from dealing 30 damage, but yes, each Vela the Night-Clad sees the 5 that die and trigger 5 times each. If the Rite of Replication is targeting an opponent's Vela only 4 die with only 5 seeing the deaths resulting in 20 triggers for 20 life loss from each opponent.
