Hello and welcome to my commander deck featuring the real hero of Dominaria, Niambi, Faithful Healer

Adding to my list of unusual commanders we have the daughter of Teferi. So why her? Firstly, she's new and probably very unlikely to appear in your playgroup. Secondly, Teferi, Timebender is actually a decent planeswalker (and capable of infinite turns with The Chain Veil + 20 mana if that's your thing) providing utility, life gain and card draw on top of his ultimate. Finally, she can fetch Teferi from either the deck or graveyard, allowing us a reusable planeswalker. As you can see from the list, we have a good selections of Azorius' finest down to some fun includes. If you wanted to make this deck more competitive, you can swap out Niambi for Grand Arbiter Augustin IV and go a more control style.

So the main goal of the deck is to get as much value out of our planeswalkers, whether it's jumping up and down on loyalty or heading straight for the ultimate, we need to protect them. To do so, we have quite a few tools up our sleeve to build an effective pillow fort since combat is the biggest threat to our superfriends. Silent Arbiter means our opponents can only attack one creature at a time making our Path to Exile and Swords to Plowshares targets easier while Norn's Annex means if they don't run white, they have to pay life, which towards the end of the game can make a big difference! Should the board become overwhelmed, we can either wipe or bounce.

So we built the fort, now lets go over the walkers and their usefulness. Ajani Steadfast , Elspeth, Knight-Errant and Tamiyo, the Moon Sage are all fantastic utility emblems. Dovin Baan , Jace, Unraveler of Secrets , Narset Transcendent and Teferi, Hero of Dominaria are you control emblems and resolving a couple of those will generally win you the game. Our Token generating planeswalkers like Gideon, Ally of Zendikar and Jace, Cunning Castaway help protect our other walkers too. There is generally a planeswalker in the deck for whatever situation you would need.

What would a superfriends deck be without the almighty The Chain Veil ! This card helps us greatly hit our ultimates for those sweet emblems. To get hold of this reliably, we have Fabricate , Enlightened Tutor , Thalia's Lancers and Tezzeret the Seeker . These can also search for our Silent Arbiter or Norn's Annex if we need the protection. Finally, Deepglow Skate can allow us to insta-ultimate all but Dovin when it comes in and Clockspinning can provide extra counters if we need to save a walker or just sink some mana before our next turn.

Thanks for having a look at my Niambi, Faithful Healer deck. I hope this brought you some inspiration for any future decks you are planning. There are certainly upgrades you can make if you wanted to make it more competitive. If you enjoyed browsing, feel free to check out some of my other commanders below:
