Bad Decisions

Commander Deck Help forum

Posted on June 11, 2018, 5:25 p.m. by DrukenReaps

So I use to run a really fun 60 card deck with a bunch of cards that make people choose between one bad thing and another bad thing. Killing Wave is a great example of this, doing these things turn after turn really gets ridiculous. For whatever reason I never tried to bring the deck into commander but recently decided I would try.

Looking around the first commander that I found that would work well for this is Mogis, God of Slaughter. Although thinking about it Queen Marchesa has a similar effect in whether or not to let me keep the monarchy.

Can you guys make any suggestions for other commanders that force some kind of bad decision on my opponents?

Athreos, God of Passage- apparently the in thing to do now is to runShadow born Apostle

Sorry apparently that's a deck

I meant the card shadow-born apostle ( I don't know what I'm doing wrong I'm trying to put a link for the card but it keeps going to somebody's deck)

I have a deck like the one you described, with Kaervek the Merciless at the helm. Mogis is in the deck.

Here's the link: Trick or Treat?

I would go for the mogis deck as he is very hard to remove. Then you can run cards like Sulfuric Vortex to dish out more pain.

Homelessguy its because you're not quite spelling it right. "shadowborn" is all one word, but you separated it into 2 words when you tried to link it. Shadowborn Apostle

Gahiji, Honored One is making your opponents into attacking each other, which is always the right choice. Tasigur, the Golden Fang's ability is great at making opponents have a tough choice.

I'm not super impressed with Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist as a commander, but he encourages opponents attacking each other - similar to Gahiji. Might be suitable as a partner?

There aren't many legendary creatures that do this, but lots of enchantments, so you could go with an enchantment deck? (e.g. Painful Quandary)

Could be fun to look at the Tribute cards from Theros block. Nothing suitable for a commander, but good flavor.

Thank you guys for your thoughts. I'm loving the look of Trick or Treat Uskebasi so I think I'll be stealing some of your ideas :D
