Legendary Artifact

Mattio38 Hey, thanks for stopping by yourself haha!

I've played this a handful of times with my group, and it's always at LEAST been a major threat, with her ability to toss out huge threats at a moment's notice. Magda is genuinely an all-star lol, the ability to fetch Avacyn's Memorial out of the deck is insane. Especially considering you can swing Magda safely, since the fetched Memorial will make her indestructible lol. Allowing you to continue fetching big nasties (Bladewing, Deathless Tyrant, Drakuseth, Maw of Flames, Oros, the Avenger, and Piru, the Volatile are all excellent targets, with Gadrak, the Crown-Scourge as prooobably your last choice) turn after turn. Luxior, Giada's Gift is another great choice.

But honestly? I usually hate infinite combos, so I usually try to avoid tossing those in as wincons, so this deck usually just wins by beating face better than anyone else. There's a good amount of fliers too, which are both great at protecting Dihada, as well as getting in to damage people, and any winning boards just... facilitate keeping your board around to continue doing that haha. The boardwipe creatures are especially good at keeping everyone else's board in check, since all of them deal with most go-wide strategies pretty immediately, as well as smaller utility creatures and whatnot, paired with lifelink to boot, it gets kinda funny.

A combo I do quite like is Dihada + Myrel, Shield of Argive + Agrus Kos, Eternal Soldier.

Lets you target Agrus with Dihada's +2, then you pay the , which copies her +2 for every one of your legendary creatures, and with Myrel out, your opponents don't have too many common options to deal with your board since USUALLY your board is quite vulnerable from your upkeep to your main phase 1. But Myrel stops people from doing anything during that point, so you can basically keep your Dihada +2 going safely for your entire creaturebase, letting you swing relentlessly and gain a ton of life, all while keeping Dihada safe behind the fliers and big bodies etc. etc.

Also Primevals' Glorious Rebirth won me a game hilariously hard once. A Lazav player milled like 3/4s of my library. Got to my turn. Topdecked Primeval. Put basically every legendary card in my deck straight onto the field, lands included. Generally speaking, I prefer to let all 4 cards go to the grave with Dihada's -3, since the 4 treasures is REALLY strong, but if I ever mill Primeval, you bet I'm grabbing that lol.

As for your recommendations, yeah Blasphemous Act is kinda just never a bad idea lol. I might toss it in, but I find I've been able to get by using Piru, Oros, or Ashling in a similar way. The deck makes enough mana to make it functional haha, plus it leans more into the legendary tribal aspect, which I enjoy. Sheoldred is definitely a great include, I'm not really sure why I didn't include her other than maaaaybe being a massive hate magnet. I would argue that Rodolf is even better in the deck with a little extra legwork involved, but Rodolf, for some strange reason, doesn't attract as many bad intentions haha

Definitely not a bad idea though, fits into my theme of "keep my things on the board", if I ever find a card underperforming I might just swap it out for her.

Hey! Just swinging by because I'm a fan of Dihada, I'll drop my deck for you to check out, see if you can pull any ideas out of it. The description kinda goes into details about all of the major legendaries I've included, so maybe you'll find something you'd like in there.

The Deck

Anyways, as for some opinions on your deck as is, I'm just going to assume there's no real budget limitation here since it's already sitting pretty high up there.

I would included a LOT more legendary lands, just, generically. It's incredibly helpful to have Dihada's -3 ability consistently fetch lands if you need them. Honestly just grab as many as you can that aren't like... actively bad for the deck.

I also don't know how particularly worth it the Eldrazi titans are. Like, sure, they're always not BAD, but if you're looking for big splashy creatures, while keeping your CMC relatively low, I feel like there are better options. There's also a distinct lack of fliers, which any planeswalker-commander deck kinda caves to for obvious reasons.

You got Gisela, who CMC aside thanks to the -3, is pretty great, but may also be an absolutely enormous hate magnet from everyone at the table immediately. Skithiryx is solid thanks to his self haste-enabling and regeneration if need be. Drana seems... kiiinda low impact in my opinion? It's easy to connect with someone since she flies, but unless you have a big board set up, she doesn't really do much for you. Breena is a great include for card draw, she can get big, or buff something else, and helps the rest of the table enough to incentivize people to NOT blow her up. And lastly, Rodolf is actually pretty cool, and is probably worth keeping around for sure, his recursion is really nice and synergizes well with Dihada's lifelink shenanigans. Important to note however that lifelink will not give him indestructible when he, or anything else punches stuff, at least, not until AFTER the combat damage and everything has been dealt, in case that matters.

A couple of immediate recommendations, including stuff from your maybeboard, at your discretion then:

Zeriam, Golden Wind - Is a respectably cheap dude, is a flier to protect Dihada, makes even MORE fliers to protect Dihada, and then THOSE fliers can produce even more fliers, it's great.

Agrus Kos, Eternal Soldier - Using Dihada's +2, with an additional , means you can apply her +2 to every legendary creature you control every turn. Which is really, really, really strong lol.

Luxior, Giada's Gift - Let Dihada throw hands herself. Equip this to her, and use her +2 on herself now that she's a creature. Now you have a commander with vigilance, lifelink, and indestructible, that's slowly getting bigger and bigger, and there's very little your opponents can do to shut it down conveniently. Plus, Luxior is legendary, and can be fetched in any number of ways, including her -3.

Magda, Brazen Outlaw - This lady is NUTS. Hear me out. You have her out, and she's able to attack. Use Dihada's -3, putting all 4 treasures onto the field. Then you attack with Magda, creating a 5th treasure. Then, before damage is even dealt, you use Magda's last ability to sacrifice all 5 treasures you just made, to fetch something like Avacyn's Memorial straight out of your deck and onto the field. Yeah she's pretty good lol.

Oros, the Avenger - Flier that shooouldn't hurt your own field too much, but is extremely good at wiping out everyone else's small things, for a small cost. If you give it lifelink, you're golden lol. Is also a target for Magda, if you include her.

Drakuseth, Maw of Flames - This dude with lifelink is wonderful. You get 10 damage to throw around just for attacking, serves as decent removal, and itself hits for 7. Is also a flier, and can be fetched by Magda.

But yeah, I could probably say some more stuff but I'll leave you with this for now, is a super fun deck, I hope you get it to a place where you're happy with it!

Crucible of Worlds and Command Beacon makes it where you no longer pay command tax Divine Reckoning Slash the Ranks The Eternal Wanderer and Hour of Reckoning are decent board wipes to consider

Avacyn's Memorial and Leyline of Singularity i noticed your only using token creatures Mirror Box when your against snowball goblins or elves this combo comes in handy

EyelessStarfish I think Avacyn's Memorial and Darksteel Forge are too mana heavy to fit in the deck but I really like the idea of Leonin Abunas; maybe on a similar note Rebbec, Architect of Ascension could offer similar protection. Gods Willing effects also look like solid cards to look into. I’m not a big fan of Lightning Greaves in this deck since I play such a low number of creatures and if they get stuck on Sram I can’t equip anything on him.

Only reason for Zephyr Boots being in the deck is because it’s a 1 mana equipment so it’s definitely a card I could replace with something better. I don’t think I want to remove Balan, Wandering Knight I play him as a backup wincon when Sram is too expensive to play and/or equip.

Cards I’m considering replacing would be Zephyr Boots, Explorer's Scope and Armed and Armored, Also I’m thinking if I should cut down on removal in favour of adding more protection.

Avacyn's Memorial is a bit expensive to cast, but it protects your key pieces. Darksteel Forge works as a duplicate effect but is slightly more expensive. One less mana intensive card is Leonin Abunas, which is only half the cost of the memorial, but only offers hexproof instead of indestructible. Sram can be protected with cards that give hexproof or protection to the color he's being targeted by with cards like Beaming Defiance and Gods Willing. Something I noticed with Leonin Shikari is that it pairs really well with Lightning Greaves, as you can respond to a kill spell with the equip trigger at instant speed, which will fizzle the spell. Admittedly, these can be a little hard to pull off in a game, but when it happens it's very satisfying. As for things to take out for these cards, Zephyr Boots is nice because it's cheap, but it's effect is outclassed by the other 1 drop equips in the deck. Another card to remove would be Balan, Wandering Knight, mainly because it's hard to focus on two voltron targets. As for some other card swaps, I'm not too sure. There's already a lot of cards that work well with Sram in the deck and it's a bit hard to decide what else should be removed.

Do I properly understand it that Wilhelt, the Rotcleaver and Leinore, Autumn Sovereign are going to be the precon commanders? If so, I'd actually buy the Wilhelt deck from the commander alone, but then again, Leinore is wide open regarding how the precon could be built, so there's definitely potential for interesting cards. Avacyn's Memorial might be boring, but interesting, for sure.

Also, how cute is the artwork of Visions of Dominance?
