Smallish on Need a new fun/cheap commander ...

Ok cool! I'm thinking (even though it's not that cheap ;) of going with a Vial Smasher the Fierce deck (my cousin made one, and it was really fun! I'll try and check out some more of your decks.

Well Animar has the most potential to get broken. Casting eldrazi titans for is pretty devastating.

Muldrotha hypercompetitive is usually stay but that's really no fun. You can make a pretty normal self-mill + creatures-that-sacrifice-themselves for cheap and mine runs pretty well.

Krenko and Scarab God are both decent tribal pieces. I would say Krenko is scarier, but zombies may well be a stronger tribe.

Alesha is not as good as other small-creatures-matter commander combos. Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa + either Silas Renn, Seeker Adept, Vial Smasher the Fierce, or Tana, the Bloodsower are good. Ezuri, Claw of Progress is also worth noting.

As for Vial Smasher and Ludevic... I don't really see where that would go? What would you do with it?

In general, I would say that the biggest potential competitiveness, especially in a slower meta, is Animar. He just has the potential to get big threats out very quickly.

Consider a change in commander. If you run Vial Smasher the Fierce, then your other commander could be Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa. Now, reading Sidar Kondo, it's not too difficult to see his application in this deck. The only question is... how much instant-speed pump ya got?

Cyberseb you win with value ! With Myojin of Seeing Winds you draw tons of cards, with Myojin of Night's Reach every opponents discard his hand, with Tidespout Tyrant if you draw enough cards, you can clean the board every turn. (look at this stax version of cEDH channel

With Jodah I think you have to choose between the way of "spellsliging" or "creature". Than, you don't need to have a combo to kill all your opponents, just find some stax effects, some way to remove their permanents every turn. In my deck, i run a spellslinging (and less competitive) theme. With sunbirds invocation, Swarm Intelligence, Paradox Engine, Vial Smasher the Fierce, Omniscience. I run 10 wrath, Enter the Infinite with some Time Reversal effects.

May I suggest Shadowblood Ridge instead of Temple of the False God. This filter land may help you pay for a turn 2-3 Vial Smasher the Fierce. Also Exotic Orchard and Shivan Reef are not expensive. You might want Ancient Excavation, Steam Augury, Fact or Fiction instead of Frenzied Fugue, Thought Scour and Extract from Darkness for fuel for Delve. Mind's Dilation, Sunbird's Invocation, Stolen Strategy, Fury Storm and Fevered Visions can often win the game by themselves. You might want some counterspells which can also be card advantage: Izzet Charm and Arcane Denial. Disdainful Stroke and Swan Song stop almost everything for cheap. Have you tried Phthisis? Bojuka Bog and Rakdos Charm are good against graveyard decks (which is a popular theme). You may also consider Brainstorm for better control of your draws.

enpc on Any advice? Thrasios / Tymna ...

Parasitic Strix + Cloudstone Curio doesn't work as a backup combo since Curio specifically states "non artifact". Cloudstone Curio is still a good card in the deck, but that specific line doesn't work.

Aluren is a bit of an interesting card with Thrasios as he works best as a mana sink, however Aluren combos don't typically generate mana. For this reason it could be worth adding cards like Cloud of Faeries and Village Bell-Ringer to help generate mana to then use Thrasios to dig.

Out of curiosity, have you thought about using Vial Smasher the Fierce over Tymna? if your deck is built around ETB, red gives you a lot of good options like Impact Tremors, and you can include cards like Animar, Soul of Elements as a backup line, as well as Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker combos.

If you want some lower cost creatures you can try Goblin Spymaster, Discordant Spirit, Vial Smasher the Fierce and/or Mogis, God of Slaughter
