Evasion in Black

Commander Deck Help forum

Posted on Oct. 19, 2016, 3:07 p.m. by RazortoothMtg

So my journey through every legend ever has brought me to Withengar Unbound  Flip. Yes, I am doing transforming legends.

Anyway, the front side, Elbrus, the Binding Blade  Flip, needs to hit to flip. I have Tormented Soul as a good way to get it through, but don't really know any other good ways.

Anyway, my question is: What are some unblockable/good evasion creatures in mono-black?

I would say skulk, fear/intimidate, and landwalk abilities.

Vampire Cutthroat, Cover of Darkness, Blind Zealot, Trailblazer's Boots.

Trailblazer's Boots will probably provide the best results. If it wasn't for the equipment, I would say Whispersilk Cloak.

Just ensuring that you are aware. Elbrus, the Binding Blade  Flip is not a legal commander since it is not a creature and Withengar is not a legal commander because it is not the default state of the card it is printed on.

As long as you are aware of this, have fun building the deck.

Yes I'm entirely aware of that fact. The idea is simply to throw together a deck for all the legends, of which I am including transforming and flip legendaries, along with nephilim, since they are "honorary commanders" in a lot of playgroups. Just want to have the ability to pull up a quick deck to play online for any legend, and can hopefully build some interesting decks with some of the less played legends.

Predator, Flagship can give your guys evasion or destroy some other creatures (with enough mana, which shouldn't be a problem in mono black).

Mogis's Marauder is a personal favorite.
