Come at me bro! SELESNYA CONTROL!!!

Commander / EDH* Aggro GW (Selesnya)



This is my BRAND NEW deck. I made it Sunday (4/20/14) in about 40 minutes.

I have some color of protection.

I have some targeted removal.

I have some (not nearly enough) scary creatures and different ways to get them onto the battlefield.

I think my ramp is ok. I have only played this 1 v 1 and I won 2/3 times. I need to play this in a group of 4 to see what happens and how it plays.

Everyone assures me that I will get hated off the field and if that happens, then fine. But I hate infinite combos and people that use them so anything to slow them down is a plus in my book.

Any help here would be appreciated




Had been awhile since I updated this deck. I just cashed in on a foil Tarmogoyf and bought a bunch of great cards. Some of which I bought for this deck, some I got from opening two boxes of MM '15.

I would like to see another 4-5 lands, and more ramp in here. Skyshroud Claim , Nature's Lore , Gilded Lotus , Basalt Monolith , Chromatic Lantern , Sakura-Tribe Elder , Krosan Tusker -so good

If you end up getting Avacyn and the like, I would switch to Captain Sisay as commander, and tutor for Teeg every single game ASAP. It is a good system. If you are looking for power houses Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger

If you like these let me know.

I totally agree...Captain Sisay seems fun. People don't like Teeg as a commander, so I could foresee switching these two out for each other. I counted my legendaries last night, I only have 6 so far, so I'm a little ways out for the Capt.

As far as keeping Teeg as my general, I don't like to have too many spells with a CMC of 4 or greater, like Gilded Lotus or Skyshroud Claim. I don't think I need Chromatic Lantern, I'm only playing two colors, but I do like Basalt Monolith, I may throw that one in there. Believe it or not (I have a hard time with it) I do just fine with the ramp and low-amount of lands that I have.

I want Vorinclex. The latest card I was able to pick up was Craterhoof Behemoth, he is fun :)

Ty for the suggestions.

When you do end up getting all your big guys the deck will be much different. Also remember the captain can search up a legendary land like the shrine to Nyx or something like that.

A buddy of mine used Teeg as commander, but he just was not good enough in that spot. He changed to Sisay, and ramp. It really stinks that on multiple occasions he has done turn 2 sisay, turn 3 Mirari's Wake, search for teeg, turn 4 Avacyn, and Teeg. That is a tough game to deal with. So tough. He has played sisay on turn one, and teeg turn 2 also. This was followed by more shenanigans.

The reason that I feel sisay works better then teeg in command spot is that after one turn, sisay is not the thing to be feared. When running teeg, he is the constant target. When Avacyn hits the board, opponents are just thrown on their heels while sisay is still dropping Vorenclex and the like.

Dueling Grounds & Crackdown help the control element and keep you relatively safe
