GW Hatebears Commander
Posted on Dec. 20, 2018, 2:49 a.m. by Triton
I’m having a dilemma between either Saffi Eriksdotter and Captain Sisay at helm for a GW Hatebears deck. There are quite a few legendary cards in the deck, so I figured Sisay would work, but not as many as I’d imagine. Saffi seems like a rather unique commander, but I tend to feel like it’s just going the combo route.
Why would you have anyone other than Gaddock Teeg as your commander?

I would go with sisay because her effect just works. Saffi is useful once or twice unless you dedicate 10-15 cards to being able to use her.

Here is a list of good, fetchable hatebear targets with Sisay:
Card draw engines
Paradox Engine -> anything -> Mox Amber -> Mox Opal -> Seton, Krosan Protector -> Dosan the Falling Leaf -> Bow of Nylea -> Bontu's Monument -> Mikeaus, the Lunarch. Loop lunarch with bow&sisay&Paradox Engine, drain opponents with monument for damage.
All of the above is just what I remember off the top of my head, you can find tons of cool things to fetch!

competitive EDH? I aint about that life. What I am about is playing Gaddock Teeg from the command zone over and over and over and over again

SynergyBuild Winning is cool, but have you ever tried annoying the living hell out of your playgroup until they demand you play your other decks? Its better than winning. xD

SynergyBuild's right. Sissay is objectively the best hatebears commander for WG.
Still, for casual hatebears in commander, my vote actually goes to Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa. He's unassuming enough to not draw hate and being able to make all your small dorks unblockable is cool. Making what basically amounts to a Meekstone deck is both good at casual tables and not too oppressive.

Did I mention winning?
(Yes all of the loop is legendary and hilarious, my opponents might as well just hand me their cards for me to play with for a few hours xD)

Also, I meant Linvala, Keeper of Silence with my first post

Oh my God Selvala hands down. Gives you card advantage and you can either choose to go full on stax with Uba Mask or keep the cards flowing. Makes for an excellent Aetherflux wincon, also.

Sisay can even win with Selvala lines faster than selvala can.

SynergyBuild LOL, at this point it is just a meme.
