Did some research for cards for the deck. Here are some you might like:


Verdant Eidolon

Oasis Ritualist

Karametra's Acolyte


Alena, Kessig Trapper

And obviously, Nyxbloom Ancient is generally incredibly powerful.

What's more, how about Harvest Season?

I never understood the purpose of Piper. Let's say I drafted a total of seven Commanders with Partner, not including Piper. Then, let's add Piper in as an 8th draft. And I'm going to literally pick seven at random. HERE WE GOOOO

In this case, I didn't draft a single Commander, so if I desperately wanted to play , I could run Piper, I suppose. However, why would I intentionally nerf myself when I can run so many other options?

For example, you don't need a Pirate-tribal deck to run Malcolm, Keen-Eyed Navigator. You only need 1 Pirate (Your Commander) to deal damage. As long as you deal damage with at minimum 1 Pirate, you get the trigger which then looks at who all was dealt damage. For example, running with Tana, the Bloodsower could yield a Temur Stompy deck that ramps relatively hard. And technically it isn't combat damage you need, just any sort of damage.

You could run Dimir Artifact Salvage if you drafted a handful of synergy for use between Keskit, the Flesh Sculptor and Silas Renn, Seeker Adept.

Obvious Alena, Kessig Trapper and Gilanra, Caller of Wirewood if you drafted bombs.

Esior, Wardwing Familiar and Alena, Kessig Trapper for some huge spells.

Literally a ton of options. Why would anyone intentionally nerf themselves playing Piper and losing out on some strong synergy between abilities? It literally makes zero sense to me. And if the excuse is that you drafted a few white cards but no white Commanders but you REALLY want to play white, then you need to reassess your situation because it ain't gonna happen.

DarkMagician it gets a bit complicated given we're talking about extraterrestrial humans here, but no young, impressionable indigenous kid looking for a fantasy hero that looks like her will be satisfied at Alena, Kessig Trapper. And that's all I'm concerned about here.

Halana, Kessig Ranger and Alena, Kessig Trapper are married.

Ral, Izzet Viceroy and Tomik, Distinguished Advokist are in a relationship - in the two cards linked, you can even see that Ral is carrying a piece of Tomik’s white cloth and Tomik a piece of Ral’s red cloth to indicate their connection.

Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter’s character blurb mentions how her wife died.

Alena, Kessig Trapper could be budge alternative to Selvala. Halana, Kessig Ranger could do some work here too

Alena, Kessig Trapper has proven to be one of my favorite red mana dorks of literal all time. She may be useful here, potentially!

More importantly, love to see underutilized gruul commanders more so we stan this.

Hi NomadaLoco and thank you! I've haven't thought about Arcbond before and I think it could be potentially really interesting. I think it would be one of those situational cards as Alena, Kessig Trapper doesn't have very high toughness and potentially wouldn't survive a lot of damage. I think it could be really cool though with the right board state!
