Commander Deck Help forum

Posted on June 10, 2019, 9:40 p.m. by blackfox4893

So the commanders that I've narrowed my choices down to are: Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow Aminatou, the Fateshifter blink deck Oloro, Ageless Ascetic lifegain Dragonlord Silumgar theft/copy deck

Out of these commanders which one should I choose?

next time, be sure to link cards using double brackets. what kind of deck are you trying to build? aggro, midrange, combo, or control?

I think Aminatou and Oloro are more combo control,so maybe Yuriko?

I would personally go with Yuriko. Fun commander, can be built tribal or not. Card draw in the command zone. She makes for a good midrange imo. Plus, you have access to removal and counterspells to manage every little problem which could cross your way.

Oloro and Aminatou win with combos and are very control focused. Not too mention, combos are generally not playgroup friendly. Silumgar makes for a cool deck, but has to "wait" for others to play good spells to steal, and you generally steal at sorcery speed, so this could put you in a bit of a disadvantageous position.

Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow is the only midrange commander there the others are control heavy really and could make a really fun deck :)

yuriko is probably the strongest here. definitely use as many ninjas and changelings as possible, with some spells that let you put cards from your hand on top of your library plus a few bombs. get that Emrakul, the Aeons Torn to the top of your deck and then draw it with yuriko and watch everyone cry as they lose 15 life.

Buddy of mine made the planeswalker general into a miracle based control deck... It's doable and I have to admit as much as I hate playing against control it was a well functioning deck

blackfox4893 I had a look at your deck and its looking god, I would recommended ALL of the split cards in blue black or dimir. This is due to the split cards having an "inflated" CMC. The CMC of a split cards is both sides added together, even if you cant cast both sides at the same time or even from the same zone. For example Commit // Memory is a cmc 10 card and will therefore cause lots of pain with your commander :)

Looks like a solid Yuriko list. A couple of suggestions for your consideration though. Back when I still had my Yuriko deck I loved using the Eldritch Moon Eldrazi: Emrakul, the Promised End , Vexing Scuttler , Elder Deep-Fiend , etc. They all have huge mana costs, but each cost can be reduced. It's especially fun to sac Yuriko to the emerge eldrazi, then bounce the emerge eldrazi back to hand with Yuriko, and then repeat the process.

Other cards with high CMC that can be reduced that I really liked were Temporal Trespass , Curtains' Call , and Commit / Memory .

Lastly, I can't stress enough the importance of top deck manipulation in Yuriko. If you can budget it I would strongly recommend picking up Scroll Rack and Sensei's Divining Top .

Here is my old list if you want to take a look: Pocket Sand v2

Thank you guys for this I didn't even know that the split cards are counted for as a combine mana cost so I'm definitely going to be adding them.
