I think these are all solid commanders but would have to say Kodama of the East Tree and Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder is my favorite combination. Although Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder isn't my favorite he does give solid protection thru the threat of death to most blockers which is nice since you will be attacking a lot.

The real fun comes with Kodama of the East Tree paired with cards like Ilharg, the Raze-Boar or Etali, Primal Storm, although high cmc's the pay off is worth it.

Throw Wulfgar of Icewind Dale and Adriana, Captain of the Guard into the mix now that is a lot of free creatures put onto the board for some explosive turns.

Rienne, Angel of Rebirth is a really solid option, especially if you want the potential of winning on commander damage, but there is plenty of recursion in G, what with Regrowth effects.

Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder + Tana, the Bloodsower would be a pretty sweet combo. Ghired, Conclave Exile would work great with Delina, Wild Mage and all those other Flamerush Rider effects- imagine having several Wulfgars out! Marisi, Breaker of the Coil prevents opponents from messing with your combats and makes your opponents tap out their creatures.

So, I really want to build a deck with secret Commanders. As I posted in another forum about Wulfgar of Icewind Dale, I would love to "partner" him up with Adriana, Captain of the Guard.

So, obviously I need a Naya Commander, be it singular or some combination of Partners. While it is true I could always go Najeela, the Blade-Blossom, I really don't want to. I feel like she's overused and I don't intend to run Dimir, even if I could add more utility to the deck. I want it to be strictly Naya.

I know that because I want Wulfgar and Adriana, I need to focus on attacking as much as possible during combat. Good Commanders for this are:

These two have actual attack triggers, though I am unsure how much of the deck, if any, will utilize tokens, which thus makes Ghired a little bit lackluster. And given how Melee works, I need to declare as an attacker anyways. Therefore the token Ghired populates would not trigger Melee.

So this sounds like Gahiji, Honored One, as she gives the +2/+0 to everyone. What's nice is that Wulfgar doubles this into +4/+0 and Adriana gives Melee on top of it, for a potential +3/+3. With them both combined, you'd see two triggers of Melee and two triggers of +2/+0 for a total of +10/+6 on everything, assuming they are both out.

That sounds supremely awesome and overpowered and broken.

But my concern comes in the form of removal. Once Wulfgar and / or Adriana are off the battlefield and in the graveyard, it feels like it would be extremely difficult to get them back.

Following that logic, would it actually make more sense to build around Rienne, Angel of Rebirth?

Or does the community have better ideas? I'm also looking at Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder possibly partnered up with Kodama of the East Tree, as this gives me both an incredibly powerful attack trigger to kick off of, but also a means to help cheat some larger creatures into play, essentially doubling my efforts each turn.

I basically want the deck to be able to stand on it's own two legs, but kick off when Wulfgar or Adriana hit the field, and become a dominating presence when both land.

I mean, Wulfgar of Icewind Dale doubling Aurelia, the Warleader is just immensely brutal, especially with Adriana, Captain of the Guard triggering Melee off of everyone during what amounts to all three combat steps. Seriously, that's Melee on all three of them and Wulfgar doubles each time. So by the third combat phase, you're at +18/+18.

  • +3/+3 for attacking all three opponents
  • 2x for Wulfgar
  • +3/+3 again during the 2nd phase
  • 2x for Wulfgar
  • +3/+3 for the final phase
  • 2x for Wulfgar
  • +6/+6 + +6/+6 + +6/+6 = +18/+18 by the end of it.

All of this said, I'm thinking the wisest option is Rienne, Angel of Rebirth since she helps protect against death. What's everyone else think, though?

Rienne's 5/4 body would also be bumped to 8/7 on Adriana and with Wulfgar, an additional +3/+3 to a total of 11/10. If you happen to have Aurelia, the Warleader or someone such as Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder for double strike, that's a 1-shot kill due to Commander Damage.

I think I'm talking myself into running Rienne, Angel of Rebirth but I want to be sold on it by the community. I feel like I'm missing something here... Am I?

legendofa on Best objectives for deck idea: …

I had another deck concept this morning: Use the cascade from Flamekin Herald to cast Resurgent Belief for a big pile of enchantments. I'm looking for some direction to go forward with this idea. Budget isn't a serious concern, but it should match the competitiveness. I don't want to put a $300 card in a casual jank deck. Similarly, I tend to play toward the lower end of the competitive EDH scale. I like to win, but I like to mess with the game and try new things just as much. Uniqueness is more important than victory, as long as victory is possible.

Right now, I see two ways to design this thing. First is straight enchantment combo, something like Havoc Festival + Wound Reflection that just wins the game. Second is Voltron, using something like Eldrazi Conscription and Rage Reflection .

I'm also not sure where to go with the commander. I'm looking hard at a partner set. Sets that support the Voltron line are Kediss, Emberclaw Familiar + something , or Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder + pretty much anything at MV 2. Akiri, Line-Slinger is on color and MV 2 for the cascade, but the ability doesn't offer much. So basically, I need a partner set that includes:

  • a very cheap (MV 2) option
  • + color identity
  • something that reasonably interacts with enchantments or Voltron

The commander consideration is also related to how the enchantments are getting into the graveyard in the first place. There aren't any huge, game winning enchantments with cycling. Wheels give away free cards in this setup. Self-mill might be the way to go.

Also, if anyone has any specific card suggestions to help the core concept, please throw them in, too. This deck is more or less a Living End variant for enchantments in EDH.

RazortoothMtg on Elephant's Graveyard (Boros Reanimator Combo)

Arcaneful: yeah, that sounds about how I thought it would: fun but probably not great. If you want another color, Tormod, the Desecrator + probably Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder ? Then you can play Quin in the 99, but I think it being boros is kind of the whole novelty of the deck (if it's a black deck, it's just another graveyard deck, although you do get to use some cards you usually wouldn't still). I'm probably gonna proxy this list or something close to it once I get to play again (if my LGS survives covid :/). Good luck on those exams!

legendofa, Oh, the possibilities. You could go voltron with Ardenn, Intrepid Archaeologist , Anara, Wolvid Familiar or Keleth, Sunmane Familiar , and you could also have an interesting build with Halana, Kessig Ranger , but I'd probably go with Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder . The whole time, though, I'd be wishing that Yannik, Scavenging Sentinel didn't have a specific partner.

Although, having him in there with Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker just to get the color identity to five colors would make for a pretty sick stax build.

Sephyrias on Best Commanders in EDH [Tier List]

Why exactly is Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder in tier 1? Just for Partner colors? If so, why is Akiri, Line-Slinger much lower?

Seeing Roon of the Hidden Realm above Atraxa, Praetors' Voice and Amareth, the Lustrous, and in the same tier as Tuvasa the Sunlit strikes me as odd. Is there some secret tech that pulls Roon out of tier 4(casual)?

I'm surprised that Siona, Captain of the Pyleas is "only" tier 3, considering the 2 card combo with Shielded by Faith. I suppose it is because GW doesn't offer a lot of consistency for it?

Liesa, Shroud of Dusk still needs to be added. Probably goes right next to Kambal, Consul of Allocation. Almost exactly the same 99. Her tax effect also hits creatures, but she costs more mana in exchange and isn't one-sided, so it evens out.

Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip, Westvale Abbey  Flip, and Hanweir Garrison for more human tokens, it looks like you have most of the other good ones.

For human tribal, Jirina or Trynn/Silvar are probably better, but Alena/Ravos could be pretty good for a different concept. Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder is a solid alternate to Alena, and is much cheaper now that commander legends is out, so unless you have a need for that red mana, he's worth considering.

For mana, you could add more mana rocks, but it doesn't look that bad other than lots of lands come into play tapped. I tend to run basics over many tapped lands.
