Anara, Wolvid Familiar

Legendary Creature — Wolf Beast

As long as it's your turn, commanders you control have indestructible. (Effects that say "destroy" don't destroy them. A creature with indestructible can't be destroyed by damage.)

Partner (You can have two commanders if both have partner.)

You can only have 1 commander for an EDH deck. With partner, you may only have 2 commanders as long as both have partner. The partners go with each other, not other non-partner cards. So your commander would either be Aesi, Tyrant of Gyre Strait, Ashaya, Soul of the Wild, or Anara, Wolvid Familiar partnered with Ghost of Ramirez DePietro.

legendofa on I need help coming up …

Rhonas the Indomitable's combat restriction and activated ability strongly support a stompy-style deck. I'm not trying to dissuade you from building the deck you want, but I do suggest at least considering other indestructible options like Anara, Wolvid Familiar + a partner, Nylea, Keen-Eyed, or Toski, Bearer of Secrets, each of which offers a different dynamic in addition to indestructibility. Neyith of the Dire Hunt can be played as mono-green if you want to lean into the fight angle, and Kogla, the Titan Ape is another potential commander there.

TurboFog can be built in mono-green. Aside from the Fog effects like Moment's Peace, Sunstone, and Tangle, cards like Arboria, Elephant Grass, Silent Arbiter, and Crawlspace restrict attacking options. Orbs of Warding and Witchbane Orb offer more protection. Heroic Intervention should be a given if you have access to one, and there's a good number of instants that grant single-target protection. You're going to want to draw heavily, so look at artifact-based draw, top-deck searching like Commune with the Gods or Vessel of Nascency, and Sylvan Library, Harmonize, and Greater Good.

Green's win conditions are heavily based around creatures and attacking, and that's only gotten more true in recent years. Helix Pinnacle works as an alternate win con for a slower game, and artifact combos are always applicable.

Kret on Tawnos plays Jumanji

I'd definitely add Ulvenwald Oddity  Flip -> 2 hasty 4/4 creatures that can also give haste to all your birds and beasts in the late game.
Indrik Stomphowler is a little overpriced but your deck lacks removal spells so I think this could work here.
Consider Anara, Wolvid Familiar and Esior, Wardwing Familiar. They are legenday so Tawnos won't copy them but they are reasonably costed and provide protection for your commander.
The last thing that I'd change is your ramp. You're in simic -> colour that has the best ramp in the game. I would cut all mana producing artifacts and instead play cards that put more lands onto the battlefield like Rampant Growth, Farseek, Nature's Lore, Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Nissa's Pilgrimage, Skyshroud Claim, Explore, Growth Spiral, Joint Exploration or Broken Bond.
If you cut all the mana rocks for land ramp you can also run the new card Fade from History.

How will you enable Erinis to attack without getting murdered by a 4/4? Or four 1/1's? Anara, Wolvid Familiar, Vigor, Alpha Authority, Regeneration, Broken Fall, Rogue's Passage and things like these might help. (I see the Saddle there, thats a good choice).

Hey, for being new to Magic well done upgrading the precon on a budget having a good amount of cards in each area of deck building (lands, ramp, draw, removal).

What makes Vrondiss, Rage of Ancients a scary Commander is when he has indestructible. Then he can take an infinite amount of damage and each instance of damage he takes creates a Dragon.

Anara, Wolvid Familiar is a budget repeatable source of indestructible for Vronn as long as it's your turn. Roar of Challenge and You Look Upon the Tarrasque forces all defending player's creatures to block Vronn who's indestructible. Each creature who blocks does damage to Vronn which is one instance of damage to create a Dragon. This effect creates Dragons equal to the number of creatures who an opponent controls who blocked. Tamiyo's Safekeeping can also protect Vronn from targeted opponent's removal with hexproof.

If Vronn is indestructible then there's a wincon combo here to create infinite Dragons which is infinite damage to each opponent.

When Vronn creates a Dragon then Scourge does damage to an opponent, then Tempest/Outpost/Surge/Ancients does damage to Vronn or vice versa and repeat.

Some budget lands to consider replacing some basic lands:

Good luck with your deck.

Ziusdra on Card creation challenge

I want a partner that works well with commanders that want to attack. Falthis, Shadowcat Familiar and Anara, Wolvid Familiar are the kinds of partners I have in mind.


Tokezu, Frontline Shinobi

Legendary Creature - Human Ninja

First strike

Ninjutsu

Partner

Other commanders you control have Myriad. If you would sacrifice another commander due to the Legend rule, you may instead return it to your hand. It gains Ninjutsu until end of turn, and its Ninjutsu cost is equal to its mana value.

3 / 3


The schenanegans you can get up to with this card... here's the idea: Your other commander attacks Player A, along with one or two non-legendary creatures, for instance. Maybe you also have a non-legend attacking Player B. That commander becomes Myriad, which means you make token copies of it that attack all players. Legend rule means you sacrifice two of them, so if you sac the nontoken one (attacking player A) and the one attacking player B, you now have your other commander as a token attacking player C, with the original commander now in your hand with Ninjutsu = its mana value. You now can threaten to put it back onto the battlefield with its newfound Ninjustu ability, replacing any of your attacking creatures, so it can come in and surprise damage any player. You get extra mileage from its ETB effect, or guarantee a trigger from a damaging a player. Or you can wait until the token damages a player, and then Ninjutsu it in after damage, before the token goes away. The point is, you gain so much ninja unpredictability, and it really lends itself to commander damage-focused partners.

TypicalTimmy on Renegh, Stalwart General

Renegh, Stalwart General

Some fun pairings:

  • Anara, Wolvid Familiar to give them both melee, vigilance and indestructible on your turn. In Naya, there are a lot of ways to make this very useful.
  • Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder because of the double strike and lifelink, the melee is going to net you a huge return. A 4/4 Renegh, when you attack all three opponents, becomes a 7/7. That's 14 combat damage and 14 life. And with vigilance, there is no reason to not attack at all times.
  • Esior, Wardwing Familiar will make it harder to interact with your two Commanders. This gives you great protection while offering you solid combat in both the attacking and blocking phases. All around, great flexibility within Jeskai.
  • Falthis, Shadowcat Familiar will allow you to apply the pressure only in the way Mardu can.
  • Kamahl, Heart of Krosa is a bit costly, but the benefits are pretty huge. A 4/4 Renegh becomes a 7/7 with melee and a further 10/10 with Kamahl. With the trample and vigilance, you can easily knock an opponent out of the game quickly. Realizing that Kamahl also would benefit from the melee, vigilance, +3/+3 and trample, you'd be looking at a 5/5 into an 8/8 into an 11/11. So you'd be swinging with a 10/10 and an 11/11. Now yes, it is true that each of these Commanders track their own damage separately, but realize this is still a 2-turn clock regardless. If they both connect for the full amount, that's 21 damage. One more hit is 42 and game. Likewise, you can swing at one opponent with a 10/10 and one with an 11/11. This is still a 2-turn clock with connecting for 20 and 22 damage the next turn. All you need is to bump Renegh a little more and she hits for lethal. You can literally take two opponents down in 2 turns, and the final opponent down in another 2 turns, just with these two Commanders alone.
