Gahiji Aggropolitical Warfare Sim (on a budget)

Commander / EDH* Budget Group Hug RGW (Naya) Tokens



A decently budget Gahiji deck, focused on the political aspects of Gahiji and the idea of choosing one or two other players at the table as your allies... until they're no longer needed, that is. Or nobody else is left. In this way, the deck operates as a semi-group hug, because obviously you want your opponents to be well-equipped to beat the crap out of each other (but, of course, while you still hold as much control as you can over the battlefield and the results of their petty squabbles... and you stoke the fire).

Definitely built more with casual fun in mind over competitive, but I have yet to fully playtest. Any comments and/or (fairly) budget suggestions are welcome!

With all of these creatures hitting the field Im surprised I didn't see Pandemonium, trust me when I tell you that Pandemonium lives up to its name.

I would also like to recommend Utvara Hellkite which is a great card for dragons as long as it is within your budget.

Hey Zakass Thanks for the suggestions! Lol Pandemonium is a pretty crazy card, and would definitely give me a bigger advantage than the other guys at the table - an earlier iteration had a Warstorm Surge, but I was afraid it would draw too much attention/aggression... definitely something to consider after a few test plays! And Utvara is a MONSTER, but I feel like I should get a few more dragons in there first. Definitely makes me start considering a dragon sub-theme haha

How about ditching the Mind Stone and adding in a Commander's Sphere one more mana but it is add any color and it is just sac no mana inn the cost. Also a sac outlet like an Ashnod's Altar would be good to capitalize on any board state.

Eh eroine - I think swapping Mind Stone for Commander's Sphere would be an excellent idea and I'm going to do that right now! I also agree that with all these tokens, I'd benefit from a sac outlet, so that's definitely something I'm going to examine during play and testing. Thanks for the great suggestions!

I think this card could fit well into your deck. Crown of Doom
