Description

Before we begin, YES, I DO REALIZE IT IS NOT LEGAL TO HAVE A PLANESWALKER AS YOUR COMMANDER.

That said, EDH is a casual format that encourages rule-bending and me and my friends are doing Planeswalker Commander decks! I was originally either hoping to do Narset Transcendent or Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas. Yet when I saw the new Nissa, I knew I had found my true love.

Now this deck requires you to think hard and to think often and, to play quickly, you'll need to either master the deck or have absurdly fast thinking speed.

That said, thinking is fun and this is one of those decks that's guaranteed to make you a better player! It's insanely fun to build and play, but you're brain's probably going to hurt and your playgroup will probably yell at you to hurry it up.

That said, the deck is still a lot of fun to pilot and I couldn't reccomend it higher!

fragarach97 you are my hero....I love Pygmy Hippo!!! You need (I think) to make him hit Seedborn Muse + Opposition. The one and only problem is that in we can't tutor enchantment or transmute for CMC. But trust me when you see Opposition in game it makes a significant difference. For the rest you have a good build, maybe Fauna Shaman to tutor more easily Magus of the Future so you can replace Future Sight. For some counterwar Mystic Snake is excellent with Momir Vig, Simic Visionary to tutor Draining Whelk and/or Venser, Shaper Savant, you can simply cast it, see if you can draw a creature and rebounce him back to your hand. If you go infinite mana with Deadeye Navigator Brutalizer Exarch to remove all but creature and/or tutor any creature is a good out-win! Last suggestion.....Cloudstone Curio to make all more repetable can fit well.

Sphinx of Jwar Isle is always a nice body for a deck like this. It may not seem synergistic, but I like to run Telepathy and/or Glasses of Urza in situations like this. When you're looking into/setting up your future cards, you can't put a price on knowing what's coming from the other side of the board.

Along the lines of Imprisoned in the Moon is Song of the Dryads in green.

Throwing my support behing Scroll Rack and Sylvan Library. Rack is really good in its own right, though not as generally powerful as Library, but in your deck Scroll Rack would become a signature card.

Will_Of_Ulamog Thanks for the suggestions, let me know how it turns out! The Cockatrice I think is a bit overcosted, but I really like the Biomancer and will find room for him when I have the time.

DVLuca When I saw Hungry Hungry Hippo, I thought he was hysterical and put him in as a two drop on the curve. I like the idea of using him to the fullest, and I'd certainly love to eventually get a muse, but I have reservations about Opposition... perhaps it's because I've never seen it in action before? On the other hand, I love Deadeye and Venser/Snek, but I'm not really worried about getting into counter wars as I'm pretty much the only dedicated blue player in my playgroup. Usually my counter spells go entirely unchallenged. Thanks for the suggestions and I'll see what I can do.

zensunni I adore the politics behind Telepathy. Everyone knows what each other is up to... except for me of course. That and the guy who blows it up usually has something to hide. As for Song, I love it and that's exactly why it's already in the deck XD... Jokes aside, I understand how good rack and library are in this deck and will get them once I can afford them, which should be relatively soon.

Haha, I saw that you had Song in there just right after I posted and immediately felt foolish.I love the concept by the way. I just saw that Nissa the day I saw this deck and it blew me away. I always wanted to get some people together to make planeswalker EDH too, but it never happened yet.

Super sweet theme and interactions! I've also built a deck around a planeswalker, it also happens to be with the same colours and strong with the walker's themes. Here's the link if you're interested. Kiora, Sovereign of the Depths

If my meta would be okay with this, I would totally try!

Thank you! Thank you alot!

I wanted to make a UG EDH with my loveliest cards, but every commander I've tryed wanted more competitive cards.

When I accidentaly found your deck I thought "If I want to play casual cards, why not to play casual commander".

P. S. I hope with printing Ixalan they'll make planeswalkers legal as commanders

fragarach97 says... #10

Rigol Hey it doesn't get much more casual than using a Planeswalker as your commader! Sadly I feel that, even if they become Legendary permanents, they still won't be legal as Commanders, making me very sadfaced. But hey, we can always hope!

mortilus says... #12

Given the number of creatures in the deck and the topdeck manipulation you have, i'm surprised to not see Lurking Predators

June 25, 2017 8:37 p.m.

fragarach97 says... #13

mortilus Oh it's a great card for the deck, I simply don't have one yet. Once I do, you can sure as hell bet I'll find a cut for it.

June 25, 2017 9:16 p.m.

Prophet of Kruphix seems like it would be good in here

Hyperalgialysis I'd run her if she wasn't banned in EDH...

The no planeswalkers as commanders rule is really retarded TBH.

Just so you know, Archmage is Commander with PW commanders! :D

Wizened Snitches for top deck knowledge?

July 1, 2017 6:33 p.m.

fragarach97 says... #19

KeelHaul10 I'd like to avoid running cards that do nothing but reveal the top of the deck. The snitches doesn't provide me anything my other revealers and manipulators don't already, meaning it does a worse job. Now if it did something else, I'd certainly consider it, as I don't care as much about knowing the top of my opponents deck as I do about mine.

NV_1980 says... #20

I'd probably add Kruphix, God of Horizons; just because mana will never be wasted once she's there.

July 2, 2017 2:32 p.m.

fragarach97 says... #21

NV_1980 I actually recently cut Kruphix for Venser, as Venser is better to cheat out and provides a way to win off my infinite mana combo with a one-sided Upheaval. As opposed to Kruphix who, while strong, doesn't provide a win con like Venser and doesn't have as much versatility as Venser.

This is really cool! I've always hoped it would be legal to use any Planeswalker as a commander, but I didn't think about how it won't get popular until people do it.That being said, I've always wanted to build a Ral Zarek deck, so I'll try to do that!

TheRedGoat says... #23

I mean, I can't be certain where to make space for either, but you gotta remember that Vedalken Orrery and Leyline of Anticipation are things right?

Ilmu011 says... #24

I didn't know T/O even let's you ANY card to be displayed as your Commander. Gonna make a Commander-Deck with Sol-Ring as Commander, lmao

generalrenard says... #25

Inexorable Tide, Contagion Engine, or Viral Drake for Nissa? I would run Viral Drake because Nissa can cheat it out, so the only problem would be what to take out. Maybe Avenger of Zendikar as it is very slow? For Inexorable Tide its not a creature so no cheating it out, and you cheat out creatures with Nissa, Steward of Elements, and play cards with Future Sight and Vizier of the Menagerie style cards, so maybe? Since you need to tap for it, you can really use Contagion Engine one per turn, but it will put two loyalty counters on Nissa, and I don't know if it is that dramatic of an effect. Overall great deck, great idea I hope you have fun with it. +1 Upvote

I can't find a reason in the descrption as to why you don't have Vorel of the Hull Clade in. Seems like an auto included

August 16, 2017 3:46 p.m.

fragarach97 says... #27

KeelHaul10 I have a whopping three things he can interact with, that's pretty much it... If I were a counter deck, he would be an auto-include, but because I'm not he isn't.

fragarach97 says... #28

generalrenard Aside from my Commander, I have three things Proliferate interacts with, and that's why I cut all proliferate cards in an earlier version of the deck. While those are good cards, I have nowehere near enough synergy with them to actually use them.
