You also have the option of using Athreos, God of Passage as your commander, because unfortunately Kaya is not a legal commander. The only planeswalker that are legal as commanders are the ones that specifically state they are on the card itself Commander works a little differently though, because there are traditionally more people at a table (4 people in a standard pod) lifegain doesnt mean quite the same thing as it does in brawl. Not saying it is bad, depending on the level youre playing at, doubling your starting life total can be really solid. Some options you could consider running alifegain list to win would be things like Approach of the Second Sun, Felidar Sovereign, and Aetherflux Reservoir. there are many other options as well, those are just the ones i would consider. Oloro, Ageless Ascetic is another very popular commander that deals with lifegain if that is the route you want to take. If you want to lean more heavily into the tribal side of things, especially with a focus in angels, I would consider Kaalia of the Vast. She is a really powerful commander. In the deck you tagged here, if you wanted to choose a commander from that list i would go with Firja, Judge of Valor. Selective card draw is really good in commander, and this one you should be able to trigger quite frequently. A phenomenal resource for any player new to the commander format is This link should take you straight to the page for Firja, Judge of Valor as I threw it in the search bar before I tagged the link, that should give you an idea of what to expect from the site. I will be honest, Orzhov is generally outside my comfort zone, but you're welcome to tag me in anything you put together and I will happily take a look. Since you're building a 100 card singleton deck, I highly recommend having in the ballpark of:

10-12 Ramp of some kind Sol Ring, Arcane Signet, etc.

10ish Card Draw/Engines of some kind Mentor of the Meek, Mind's Eye, etc.

8-10 Pieces of Single target removal Swords to Plowshares, Path to Exile, etc.

3-5 Pieces of Board control Damnation, Wrath of God, Merciless Eviction, etc.

This will set your deck up to work consistently, and there are some card that will kind of fit multiple roles for you such as Magister of Worth and the like. I like to start by choosing my commander and working from there, but many people build the deck they want and then choose the best option from every viable commander they can. It is all personal preference. Let me know if anything I said doesnt make sense, or if you want me to clarify anything. Hope you decide to join us for the best format in the game.

You might like these: Vengeful Pharaoh, Approach of the Second Sun, Royal Assassin, Intrepid Hero, Vizkopa Guildmage, Maddening Imp (this one is really cool here; if you use the Imp's ability while you have a Ghostly Prison or similar effect on board, your opponent has to spend mana to allow their creatures to attack. if they don't, they lose the creatures), Wall of Souls, Souls of the Faultless

DuTogira on Personal Play moments you are …

All of my proud moments which I performed are in modern (including taking a game off Patrick Sullivan’s Gruul burn deck using a Pili-Pala combo deck). BUT I have some moments I’m very proud of others for pulling off against me.

LGS: playing in a pod of 4 (using my Sharuum the Hegemon deck) with a Purphoros, God of the Forge player. I’m at 17 life with 7 non basic lands in play. I have an infinite ready next time my turn comes around. ON MY UPKEEP I ask if everyone wants me to end the game, or just keep playing and fuck around (some players at my LGS prefer to lose gracefully than the “pity continue”). I even show my hand and demonstrate what the infinite will be. When I move to draw step, the purphoros player responds by Price of Progress + Lightning Bolting me for exactsies. Never have I been so proud of a loss.

That same purphoros player would later go on to beat my Vona, Butcher of Magan deck (it’s a control/resource denial deck, not vamp tribal) using a Daxos of Meletis deck, by resolving Approach of the Second Sun twice.

Approach of the Second Sun hardly ever works and costs a ton of mana. Other than that I'd play it a few times and see what you don't need in your hand or what doesn't work as well as you thought.

Have you thought about Delay ? Since Approach of the Second Sun will be cast, then delayed, once the suspend counters are removed it's cast for the second time and you win?

Thank you for all the kind words

To answer your questions:

  1. I'm still on the fence about On Thin Ice . All things being equal Darksteel Mutation is probably a better piece of enchantment based removal, it doesn't trigger ETBs and it's hard to remove the creature from play so it's good to put on another players commander. Swords is also a more efficient removal. After I a have think about the cards I'd like to add from the d & d set I'll probably pop one or the other in

  2. Wincon 3 is Approach of the Second Sun . I've tried to format the order of my custom categories but they're always weird. I've looked at the help section but still can get it right. Do you know how to do it?

5.i haven't had a chance to play Norn's Annex . It was added during the pandemic.  I was looking for pillowfort options that protect my Planeswalkers and its technically the same cost as Ghostly Prison and the prison doesn't help estrid & other Walkers so I thought I'd give it a go. I'm not afraid to try weird things especially if the card is $1.

If you want something on theme, someone else may have to help. However, if you want a literal, "win-con only" card that happens to fit your colors, check out Approach of the Second Sun
