What Card Should I Put in Place of Chorus of the Conclave?

Commander Deck Help forum

Posted on Dec. 24, 2018, 3:27 p.m. by DemonDragonJ

I have three EDH decks that contain the colors white and green (to be specific, one is red/white/green, another is blue/white/green, and the last is black/white/green), and all of them contain Chorus of the Conclave, which, when I built those decks, seemed to be a great card, but I now realize that it simply is far too expensive to ever be practical, because I shall already have summoned many creatures by the time that I can afford to cast it and each deck has plenty of other ways to make creatures more powerful.

Therefore, I shall be replacing my copies of that card with another card, and I would like to have it be another green/white creature, but less expensive, obviously. Some of the other creatures that I am considering are Dragonlord Dromoka (because her final ability is very powerful), Karametra, God of Harvests (because my green/white decks hav plenty of creatures and mana acceleration is always welcome in any deck), and Trostani Discordant (because she gives bonuses to all other creatures and also foils strategies that take control of other players' creatures; i.e., she would be great against my friend's Memnarch EDH deck).

What does everyone else say about this? What card (either any of these three or another one entirely) should I put in place of Chorus of the Conclave? I eagerly await your feedback.

Since you brought up 3 options and have 3 decks why not put 1 in each deck to give each deck a little more uniqueness.

What about Archon of Valor's Reach for the Memnarch deck naming artifacts lol. Of those 3 I like Dragonlord Dromoka the most.

To really improve the curve, if you don’t already include Gaddock Teeg in those decks, that would be another very solid option.

Azdranax, I do like Gaddock Teeg very much, but he hinders his controller as well as his controller's opponents, so I cannot use him.

As I am told to do by my overlords, Captain Sisay is the commander you want for all of your EDH decks. It can find Gaddock Teeg, Trostani Discordant, Karametra, God of Harvests, Chorus of the Conclave, Paradox Engine (for an instant win with Mox Amber, Mox Opal, Seton, Krosan Protector, and then line up any win of three drops like Bow of Nylea, Bontu's Monument, and Mikaeus, the Lunarch) and Dragonlord Dromoka, as well as many other good utility cards like Avacyn, Angel of Hope, other tutors like Yisan, the Wanderer Bard, Inventors' Fair, etc. and removal like Urza's Ruinous Blast, Mangara of Corondor, and many other great inclusions.

For example, it can fetch any walker, many legendary lands, protection for itself like Hammer of Nazahn, fun wincons like Helm of the Host, etc.

SynergyBuild, Sisay is very awesome, but I am not certain that my decks have quite a sufficient number of legendary permanents to get optimal usage from her.
