Thanks for the comment and upvote you two! Yeah this deck isn't around anymore, I might rebuild it one day too finish my mono color decks, but Zada, Hedron Grinder seems more of a likely choice to build. It would go through a whole different list if I were to rebuild it but yes Neheb and Impact Tremors would go in!

Here's my two cents. Kudos to you for thinking through this question so much as a high schooler -- I'm pretty sure I didn't have my brain turned on when I was that age, especially when it came to MtG (;

There's a common fallacy that I've often fallen prey to -- that buying 50 $1 cards is "better" than buying 2 $20 cards. Even thought the second option is cheaper, the first option feels like a bargain. So, I totally understand your budget concerns (there are a lot of student players), but "budget" isn't really related at all to deck-building mania. If you've only got $100 to spend all year on MtG, that won't change if you build 5 decks or 1 from that pool.

Now that that's clear, here are my thoughts on obsessions:

  1. If you really do feel like your current decks are underperforming, upgrade or dismantle them instead of building new decks. When I was in high school, my bro and I built ~10 cheap Commander decks over time, which were great because they became a little meta that never got old. But if one was just terrible all the time, we didn't build a new one -- we changed the old one or traded it away!

  2. More money doesn't always mean a better deck. Sometimes, "sideways" upgrades are the best choice. For example, I recently removed a Heroic/Zada, Hedron Grinder package from an old deck in favor of more ramp and removal. That made the deck much better without adding to the price tag.

  3. Similarly, building synergistically is almost always a better option than just buying "staples", especially on a budget. For example, finding a cheap, yet effective coin-flip cards instead of just jamming Inferno Titan in Okaun.

  4. Every Magic player should learn contentment and restraint. It's okay to spend money on a hobby, but every player needs to know their limits.

So, in light of that, I'd recommend that you focus in on your extant decks until you have side-graded/upgraded the decks you love, and trimmed the decks you don't. Also, post your decklists and ask for advice! The community here can give a lot of suggestions if we know what we're looking at, what your budget is, etc!

ZendikariWol I’ve not ran into any issues honestly because once you start generating draw and mana to hit Zada, Hedron Grinder with a few pump spells it just pops. I toyed with it having a few more creatures and it kinda slowed it down honestly.

I think there is no commander enough bad to not play it (exept the ones you mentionned, but there are different)

I think there are just more effective (they have better impact in the game, or they provide a better deckbuilding) commander than others.

For example a commander like Zada, Hedron Grinder i don't think she's bad on its own but the deckbuilding will need some weak cards, some cards that without Zada, will be useless. Like Accelerate or Crimson Wisps

bugdick, I just picked up Goblin Trashmaster a couple of days ago. I was looking at subing Zada, Hedron Grinder to bring it in. Since I'm gotten rid of most of the cards that give "Creature gets +/+ until end of turn," Zada isn't really pulling the weight that I originally anticipated her to.

Krenko, Mob Boss if you're feeling evil, or maybe Zada, Hedron Grinder if you want a cheap deck
