Creatures You Wish Were Legendary

Commander (EDH) forum

Every so often I come across a card that I would absolutely love to build an EDH deck around and only upset myself when I see it isn't Legendary.

I am wondering what cards you may have wanted/do want too build decks around.

The card that annoys me to no end is the beautiful......perfect.......NOT LEGENDARY!?!?!?..... Maelstrom Archangel. Since the first time I saw this card, I have wanted an EDH deck for it. Why isn't it Legendary!?

What about you?

Deadeye Navigator is my pick. Love mono U combo. Goblin Welder for red. Karametra's Acolyte for green. Sun Titan for white. Reaper from the Abyss for black.

The Nephilim. Specifically Glint-Eye Nephilim, and they just rubbed salt in the wound with SOI.

Adarkar Valkyrie, Godsire, Tamanoa, Azor's Elocutors, Lightning Angel, Monastery Mentor, Diamond Faerie, Juniper Order Ranger & Cosi's Trickster. The list goes on and on. There would be so many fun abilities to build around....

We're all missing the most important three of all. Guard Gomazoa, fblthp and...

Storm Crow!

Well... I just accidentally linked a user...

Sadly, Fblthp isn't a card on its own. However, Totally Lost is what you're looking for.

Dryad Arbor because the rules would be hilarious.

But in all seriousness, I wish Godhead of Awe was legendary the most I think.

OMG I've wanted to make a Soulfire Grand Master deck for so long why isn't she Legendary.

It could make burn playable and it's ability works perfectly for the colors it provides.

I see chirz2792 chose a different one from that cycle. I don't understand why that cycle of cards isn't Legendary there is so much flavor.

That just made me think of a fun deck building challenge for me and my friend's it'd be like classical EDH where you have to use an Elder Dragon. Except you have to use one of the creatures from that cycle.

Living Lore. Making a mill/ramp/extra turn deck out of it would just be hilarious.

Master of Cruelties. It just FEELS legendary

Nirkana Revenant would be my first pick for this. A few others I can think of are Stoneforge Mystic, Master Transmuter, Dragon Broodmother, Argothian Enchantress, Dark Confidant, and Noble Hierarch.
