BIG question remaining though- who do you guys think Ajani's retrieving? I think he's going after Ugin.

Okay. So as long as Bolas keeps absorbing power (likely not a problem for him), he never ages.

Actually, Hazoret (before hour of devastion) would have considered Bolas both immortal AND a god. That being said, there is a solid argument as to whether Bolas is immortal. He doesn't age, being a dragon, and is extraordinarily powerful. So unless someone proactively kills him- which Hazoret would not think possible, he will never die.

Further thoughts? Gideon is gonna die. I have suspected this for a while now, but given how generally uninteresting Gids is as a character, I think WotC wants to get rid of him.
They are literally introducing a character with nearly identical powers. What further proof do we need?

Replace the 4x Goblin Warchief - all it really does is give haste and that's not worth it.

Hah! I forgot that Kiki doesn't work because commander. Yeah, Yisan would be much better, you're right. Silly me.

Sucks that Prime Speaker Vannifar is so much better than Yisan but so much less interesting. I LOVE this character in terms of concept and mechanics, but he's kinda not good.

I did not read "during your turn".
In light of this new evidence, we have two revelations:
1) I'm a dumbass,
2) This commander is actually pretty weak- especially compared to other commanders at the same or similar cost. My bad.

Well, as to your commander, if its effect was symmetrical, this card would be 7 mana. It essentially reads "you win the game", under a few conditions- which are very easy to reach.

In answer to your question, PlatinumOne...
First, the commander. I am not the slightest bit opposed to custom commanders- in fact I've been trying to get my playgroup to do an all-custom game for quite a while. But I do have a problem with hilariously, ridiculously broken custom commanders, because they give innocent custom card designers like me a bad name. The Dark One is the most ludicrously OP card that I have ever seen pass to the realm of reality- outside of a joke, that is. The concept that any playgroup would willingly allow this card to exist is laughable.
Secondly, the decklist: what on earth is this deck even trying to do?? You have a needlessly large amount of mana ramp, especially for a deck that plans to set its opponents so incredibly far behind on mana. It looks like this is your first commander deck- like you just threw together a bunch of pretty good cards and a few not very good ones. And I'm all for that, I love to help out a new commander player. I was asking above for a relative experience level, and I'll admit it, the way I said it I sounded like an asshole. Sorry. That was not my intent. But my question stands- are you new to the game, or just the format, or neither?
February 15, 2019 10:31 p.m.
Of course not. That would be a terrible comment.

My friends and I are trying to draft some of the new sets that come out, or just play a good game of commander, or do anything at all. Unfortunately, our schedules are... less than ideal.
Does anybody have some tips or tricks for possibly helping these schedules align?

If you want combo, that's the place to go. However, if you want a lil more control, esper is by far my favorite color for that! Aminatou, the Fateshifter , controlling your topdecks, blinking your things- there are a lot of fun interactions with this fellow. If you're willing to put the money down, Sen Triplets can be a wicked commander as well, and can be played very politically.

I cannot foresee a single scenario where Teferi, Hero of Dominaria is not much better than Dovin, Architect of Law . I'm assuming you're using him mostly for the life gain? You'd be better with a Nyx-Fleece Ram . Super underrated card: it dies to black removal, but against burn this thing is a monster.

I actually primarily enjoy casual modern and commander. My most delightfully flavorful modern deck is a jund combo of Bloodrush and Varolz, the Scar-Striped . I play a lot of sort of semi-budget commander decks. My more competitve commander brews (still pretty casual but they can do a surprising amount of damage) usually go around 300$.

I knew what you meant by budget, . A decent modern deck costs 500-2k$. I'm familiar with what not being casual is, I'm understand the modern meta and price tag, I just choose to reject that in favor of the play style I prefer.
And it's just that- the play style I prefer. Just me. I have a lot of friends who are super competitive. They consider it a fun challenge. I consider it an unnecessary deck building restriction. Are either of us totally right? No. Because both our arguments have some truth to them. In the end, we prioritize the joy that we get out of the game. For me, that's a game of commander with no combos and no stax! And for them, it's a game of pauper where they have tron out, a Stonehorn Dignitary , a Mnemonic Wall , and Ghostly Flicker in the graveyard.
TL;DR I understand and see the appeal in competitive, especially competitive modern. It's a nice cup of tea, but it's not my favorite. My comment was meant to poke fun and not to actually offend or criticize.
