Play opponents cards, what cards do I need?

Commander Deck Help forum

Posted on March 23, 2019, 6:28 p.m. by jessniem

I’m trying to figure out my next deck. I think it would be fun to play a deck that changes after your opponents decks. So I would like to play cards that let me steal and copy cards. Please help me with some suggestions and inspiration.

I think I need a plan on how to win. Any suggestions? I like it to be a bit controling. Making my opponents nervous on what to play.

The commander doesn’t really have to do with stealing or copying, I’m up for some creative suggestions. I was thinking on maybe using partner commanders to get the colors I need.

Please inspire me :)

Etali, Primal Storm , Gonti, Lord of Luxury , Stolen Strategy , Praetor's Grasp and Dire Fleet Daredevil are some cards that come to mind when it come to playing opponents' stuff.

Don't forget Geth, Lord of the Vault , Word of Seizing , Dragonlord Silumgar ... & my favorite pet-card: Frenzied Fugue - the card with which I either ult. other player's planeswalkers or just keep taking advantage of their (-) ability.

Rubinia Soulsinger is fun. Use with Cloudshift and other blink spells that says ”return under your control” to permanently steal their stuff, and various sac outlets to be a dick :)
