Zhang Fei, Fierce Warrior Discussion
1 year ago
Looks like a good start. I'll do my best to suggest older cards but most of the cards from portal 3 kingdoms where liu is from are either bad or super expensive due to its very limited print run in english. Here are a few initial thoughts:
I think the weak spot of the deck right now is card draw. EDH games tend to go on a lot longer than other formats. This means that you will soon run out gas in hand and be reliant on topdecks. White unfortunately has the weakest card draw/section of the 5 colors so your options are a bit limited. Mentor of the Meek is borderline as to if you should run it since with that card you want a lot of 2 or less power creatures. In terms of artifacts, The Immortal Sun, Staff of Nin and Mind's Eye can help. It has the potential to backfire really hard but if you are wanting older cards you could try Pursuit of Knowledge but it's really bad if they destroy it after you've skeipped a couple draw steps.
If you wanted to boost your commander, the cards he mentions are Guan Yu, Sainted Warrior and Zhang Fei, Fierce Warrior. If you don't have either in play, guan has better stats and is arguably a better commander than liu as he's more consistent.Thalia's Lancers can help liu find his missing buddies as well as several other cards in the deck. (worth noting it doesnt just find creatures so it could also find the imortal sun or a land like Eiganjo Castle or Kor Haven if needed.
Right now i think a lot of your games will be won off of smacking them a few times with yor commander and dealing lethal (21) commander damage. This archetype is called voltron. If you're planning on going down this route, Inquisitor's Flail, Fireshrieker, Strata Scythe and Battle Mastery among many others can help speed up the clock. If you go for this route, i'd recomend adding more mana accelerants to the deck to get liu out before turn 5
I'd also probably cut lifelink, i don't think it does enough for you here without much in the way of life gain synergy. Archagel of thune likewise isn't super synergistic but atleast she both gains life and rewards you for doing so on the same card.

Also, you don't have to include any of these if you don't want to, but these are all the White commanders I could find that weren't in your list.

How is Yisan, the Wanderer Bard a tier 4? Strongly disagree with a deck built with the slightest amount of synergy Yisan is one of the strongest most consistent mono-green commanders. With him you literally never worry about getting the right creatures he tutors right for them grabbing answers for everything when well constructed.Not going to make the attempt to prove he is Tier 1 even though with my yisan deck I played and went either very evenly or beaten many of the Tier 1/2 Commanders on this list.Just asking for a reconsideration of Yisan. He is Fast tutors and consistent. Defiantly not on the same level as Zhang Fei, Fierce Warrior

Almost got it in three hours, I'm only like 20 minutes late.
Assuming a 6 tier system:
To be moved from T5 to T6: (Rationale: french-vanilla, overcosted with no pay-off, or just vitually no effect on the game.)
Akuta, Born of Ash, Anthousa, Setessan Hero, Baron Sengir, Bartel Runeaxe, Boris Devilboon, Cho-Manno, Revolutionary, Arcades Sabboth, Atogatog, Chromium, Circu, Dimir Lobotomist, Cloudhoof Kirin, Commander Greven il-Vec, Crovax the Cursed, Dakkon Blackblade, Daughter of Autumn, Gabriel Angelfire, Gallowbraid, Gosta Dirk, Grandmother Sengir, Haakon, Stromgald Scourge, Halfdane, Hazduhr the Abbot, Hivis of the Scale, Huang Zhong, Shu General, Hunding Gjornersen, Ihsan's Shade, Irini Sengir, Ishi-Ishi, Akki Crackshot, Iwamori of the Open Fist, Jacques le Vert, Kei Takahashi, Kentaro, the Smiling Cat, Lady Caleria, Liu Bei, Lord of Shu, Livonya Silone, Lord Magnus, Ma Chao, Western Warrior, Marhault Elsdragon, Morinfen, Myojin of Cleansing Fire, Myojin of Life's Web, Orim, Samite Healer, Palladia-Mors, Pang Tong, "Young Phoenix", Pavel Maliki, Princess Lucrezia, Purraj of Urborg, Rashida Scalebane, Rashka the Slayer, Reveka, Wizard Savant, Riven Turnbull, Rohgahh of Kher Keep, Shimatsu the Bloodcloaked, Sima Yi, Wei Field Marshal, Soraya the Falconer, Spirit of the Night, Stangg, Taniwha, Tarox Bladewing, Telim'Tor, Tuknir Deathlock, Tuktuk the Explorer, Ur-Drago, Vaevictis Asmadi, Veldrane of Sengir, Xun Yu, Wei Advisor, Yukora, the Prisoner, Zhang Liao, Hero of Hefei, Zhao Zilong, Tiger General, Zhou Yu, Chief Commander, Zuberi, Golden Feather.
(I left out Ramirez DePietro because I just didn't have the heart to be the one to demote him. I mean, come on, he's a pirate. Pirates should get their own tier...)
Moved from T4 to T5: (Rationale: mediocre voltron stats w/ limited defensive or evasion abilities, effects that don't have a strong effect on the game.)
Arashi, the Sky Asunder, Adamaro, First to Desire, Alexi, Zephyr Mage, Atalya, Samite Master, Autumn Willow, Ayumi, the Last Visitor, Balthor the Stout, Bounteous Kirin, Cabal Patriarch, Cao Ren, Wei Commander, Chandra, Fire of Kaladesh Flip, Commander Eesha, Daghatar the Adamant, Diaochan, Artful Beauty, Dong Zhou, the Tyrant, Eron the Relentless, Fumiko the Lowblood, Geist of Saint Traft, Gerrard Capashen, Ghost Council of Orzhova, He Who Hungers, Heidar, Rimewind Master, Higure, the Still Wind, Iizuka the Ruthless, Iname as One, Iname, Life Aspect, Isao, Enlightened Bushi, Infernal Kirin, Jareth, Leonine Titan, Jedit Ojanen of Efrava, Jiwari, the Earth Aflame, Kamahl, Pit Fighter, Karona, False God, Kami of the Crescent Moon, Kaysa, Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs, Kiyomaro, First to Stand, Kiku, Night's Flower, Kodama of the North Tree, Kumano, Master Yamabushi, Korlash, Heir to Blackblade, Kuon, Ogre Ascendant, Lady Evangela, Lady Sun, Latulla, Keldon Overseer, Linessa, Zephyr Mage, Llawan, Cephalid Empress, Lovisa Coldeyes, Masako the Humorless, Masumaro, First to Live, Munda, Ambush Leader, Ob Nixilis, the Fallen, Oyobi, Who Split the Heavens, Oriss, Samite Guardian, Pianna, Nomad Captain, Pharika, God of Affliction, Polukranos, World Eater, Radiant, Archangel, Ragnar, Rakdos the Defiler, Rayne, Academy Chancellor, Rorix Bladewing, Ruhan of the Fomori, Sensei Golden-Tail, Shauku, Endbringer, Shisato, Whispering Hunter, Silvos, Rogue Elemental, Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer, Sosuke, Son of Seshiro, Squee, Goblin Nabob, Starke of Rath, Sun Ce, Young Conquerer, Sunastian Falconer, Tahngarth, Talruum Hero, Tajic, Blade of the Legion, Takeno, Samurai General, Thriss, Nantuko Primus, Tymaret, the Murder King, Vhati il-Dal, Vorosh, the Hunter, Zhang Fei, Fierce Warrior, Zurgo Bellstriker.
Moved from T4 to T6: (Rationale: a combination of the last two. These guys really didn't belong in T4 in the first place.)
Guan Yu, Sainted Warrior, Hakim, Loreweaver, Hikari, Twilight Guardian, Kodama of the Center Tree, Kuro, Pitlord, Kongming, "Sleeping Dragon", Maga, Traitor to Mortals, Mannichi, the Fevered Dream, Meng Huo, Barbarian King, Nagao, Bound by Honor, Obzedat, Ghost Council, Patron of the Nezumi, Patron of the Kitsune, Tivadar of Thorn, Zhang He, Wei General, Zuo Ci, the Mocking Sage.
Moved from T3 to T4: (Rationale: Just basing this off of my experience with the commanders and the synergies available to them. Trying to split into Good Tier and Average Tier. Priorities for Good Tier: commanders that have built in methods of dodging removal and disruption (e.g. Thrun, the Last Troll), and commanders who's strategies quick swing the board out of proportion if left unchecked (e.g. Rakdos, Lord of Riots).)

Sorry for the lack of spoilers. They don't seem to work on my browser, and I don't want to just type in code and hope for the best.
