Tzefick on Shivers, Finicky Fennec

I see the change you've made seshiro_of_the_orochi - however the wording probably needs some changes. Right now it basically says for each card revealed; draw 2, discard 1, put a +1/+1 counter on Shivers. I doubt that was what you wanted. You probably want to word it like this:

"If you do, draw two cards, then discard a card. For each card revealed this way put a +1/+1 counter on Shivers."

I think this version grows the Fox a bit too fast for any format. The trigger itself is also a net +1 card draw and a filter. Even in Commander if you play this turn 2, turn 3 you reveal 5x lands/other 0 MV cards and hit an opponent for 7 Commander damage. This would quickly eliminate players and white has access to a few double strike enablers like Silverblade Paladin and Duelist's Heritage and Battle Mastery and a few temporary enablers.

I think the point was to make this a control Commander, but this reads a lot more like an aggro Voltron Commander. With built in card advantage and filtering, you can run a very low curve decklist that enables some hefty buffs on this Fox and the Fox is cheap, so removal is not that effective. You could consider to have it put a counter on for every two cards revealed. Although that would really make it difficult to stack some counters on it. You could also change it from +1/+1 counters to a specific counter, like a "frost counter" so you can utilize it for the controlling aspect, but not pump up the creature.

Have you put any thought into the information drawback I mentioned? Right now you can continue to reveal the same two lands to draw 2, discard 1 and grow Shivers and there's little to no drawback for the controller but a lot of benefits. And if you have more lands, you might as well reveal them to grow the whiskers even more. All for the cost of 2 mana. That's a bit much if you ask me.

Should consider putting a way to give your commander repeatable double strike so it triggers twice each combat. Here's some decent options without having to change your deck into a spell recursion engine:

Blood Mist Battle Mastery Berserkers' Onslaught Duelist's Heritage Runes of the Deus True Conviction Grappling Hook Fireshrieker Embercleave

You might considering running a suite of 1-drop dorks ( Birds of Paradise , Avacyn's Pilgrim , Llanowar Elves , Fyndhorn Elves , Elvish Mystic ) and 3-drop ramp ( Overgrowth , New Horizons , Weirding Wood , Wellspring , Wolfwillow Haven , Verdant Haven ). The more of these you have, the more likely that Sigarda can drop on turn 3.

You might like these too: Battle Mastery , Duelist's Heritage , Sram, Senior Edificer , Inquisitor's Flail , Helm of the Gods

DreadKhan on Zur the enchanter v3 [CURRENT]

All That Glitters is a really nice voltron card, and it is really great combined with Copy Enchantment or Mirrormade or Estrid's Invocation . Since you'll usually have artifacts on board, Glitters is usually a great finisher for Voltron Zur. These are very competitive in terms of damage output with Battle Mastery , while offering you considerably more versatility.

Oubliette is is now quite easy to include, and can deal with an opposing Voltron commander where Darksteel Mutation might let you down (I run both though).
