This Deck is Legen---Wait For It...

Commander / EDH GW (Selesnya)



As you can see, Sisay likes to search.

As you can see, the deck has a lot of fun things you can search for.

Not to sound opinionated, but EDH is the most fun format (haymakers and synergies and political tension and plot twists and on and on and on) and consequentially, I'm usually looking at cards through a very specific lens. Being that my style of play is to build up my board and utilize really nifty interactions between my own spells, Commander is especially appealing in that you have one spell that you can cast consistently that facilitates your gameplay. Enter Captain Sisay.Seeing Sisay, I figured it would be fun to be able to sculpt my hand, and initially I just searched for legendary creatures to throw out big things, but then I got a little more selective and now the deck has lots of fun things it can do (hasty, recursive Kozilek and Seedborn Muse + Winding Canyons + Sisay, to name a few). At present, it seems the deck could improve most notably in two ways. One is by being able to give Sisay haste and/or protection, as she has a huge target on her back, and usually doesn't make it a full pass around the table without drawing some sort of demise. The other is by having more cool/fun/good things to search for, namely land. Since adding Hall of the Bandit Lord, I've found it quite useful to be able to search for land when the well has run dry, so to speak.

you should take out cultivate, harmonize, regrowth and harrow and call it EDH of long card names. +1 from me :-)

Well, part of why I got so excited about building the deck was that my legendary spells would all have such cool names.

Kor Haven , Eiganjo Castle and Yavimaya Hollow could be nice legendary lands for you. And if you're not on a budget, Karakas ... ;)

I'm pretty sure Karakas doesn't fly in EDH...

Ah yeah that figures, it would be too insane. I didn't know it was on the banlist, but that makes sense.

I love your idea! I have wanted to make a legendary deck for a long time, and this is a nice guide. I may make mine 5 color, but you have a lot of good ideas in here.

Kinda surprised Dragonlord Dromoka isn't in here. You can search her out with sisay and she can make your turns be relatively uninterupted just by being their not to mention being a 5/7 flying lifelink dragon.

Saw this linked off of a deck I just posted and have a few cards in mind for this particular deck type that I ran in an all legendary edh deck myself.

Mirror Gallery

Blade of Selves

Sundial of the Infinite

Dig up your legendaries with your commander, attach and attack with the Blade to get more of the same legendaries but ignore the legend rule because of the mirror and after combat end your turn abruptly with the Sundial and keep the extra tokens.

Another fun one is Dark Depths with Thespian's Stage and Crucible of Worlds.

It works great with the above scenario but also by itself. Dig up the Depths with your commander and play it. Then use Thespians Stage to copy it except it won't have the counters on it so it immediately becomes the 20/20 legendary flying token. Use the crucible to replay the Stage and do it again. Two colorless mana and your land drop for the turn is all it takes to make a 20/20 whenever you want. Mirror Gallery let's you do it every turn and not even worry. You can also just do it after combat every turn on your second main phase. It's stupid good if you can put the pieces together and in green white that is particularly easy.

Neat deck, definitely something I would play.

It seems that you've forgotten that there are legendary cards other then creatures. Drop in Gaea's Cradle, Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip, lots of other good legendary noncreatures.
