smilodex on Best Commanders in EDH [Tier List]

@Imposter: Zedruu the Greathearted is a very fun group hug commander, who can also generate card advantage, BUT you need a lot of protection for Zedru and you have to play bad cards in your deck to get the best out of Zedru. You need so many resources to get him to work and without him, your deck is filled with a lot of horrible cards. So If you want to get the most value out of him, you have to play them, and then you also have to use Zedrus ability to give away these bad permanents. If you play this deck against advanced players, they will always remove Zedru when your bad permanent is on the stack. In this scenario you'll find yourself stuck in a very bad position. Some of these permanents you try to play in Zedru straight up loose you the game if you don't get rid of them. Phelddagrif is also often played as a group hug deck, he's a political tool (gift blockers to somebody who's in trouble), he can protect himself and he's an infinite mana outlet in the commandzone and he's part of an infinite combo with Suture Priest.

@Sephyrias: Mardu is currently in a pretty strong state of the meta, because of meta defining cards like Dockside Extortionist, Underworld Breach, Silence, Ad Nauseam/Necropotence/Peer into the Abyss, all the black tutors and all the asymmetrical stax pieces like Drannith Magistrate/Dauthi Voidwalker/Esper Sentinel/Grand Abolisher etc. The main reason of Kaalia's power is the fact that she can consistently cheat one of the following demons on the field in the first few rounds of the game: Razaketh, the Foulblooded or Vilis, Broker of Blood (Rune-Scarred Demon, Burning-Rune Demon, Doom Whisperer) Anyone who has ever played against a completely tuned Kaalia deck knows that the game is usually over as soon as one of the demons is on the battlefield and you have no answer for it. You can read exactly how this works (like Eisenherz wrote) in the respective Kaalia cEDH primers, but the deck has several combo lines to finish the game.

@Commander_JAR: I think you don't really understand the difference between high powered EDH and cEDH. Have you ever even bothered to read the Kaalia (cEDH) primer, why they only play 3-5 demons? Because they need the other deckslots for protection, interaction, carddraw, ramp and for tutors to find Razaketh. Flooding the board with Dragons Angels and attacking is maybe fun for you but a completely different strategy and by far not as effective as comboing with the demons... Please do us all a favour and educate yourself on the subject of competitive EDH before you post your opinion about ranking commanders. Take atleast a look at a few cEDH matches, deck techs and in general the currently strongest decklists (https://cedh-decklist-database.com) in the format and WHY they are as strong as they are.

Please read the description of the Tier List here, because we explain the difference between a strong and a competitive commander. I can highly recommend the youtube channel and the podcast of Playing with Power MTG, there you'll find many interesting videos on the subject of Competetive EDH (https://youtu.be/FwJyb8vk--4).

RedBullMan2 on Szat and Rograkh the Reanimator and the Sac outlet

GreenHamma I used to run Final Parting but i replaced it with Burning-Rune Demon becausue same thing but a creature too for only 1 mana, also 5 mana tutor for 2 aint the best thing in the game.I actully wanted to try Peer into the Abyss cause discarding whatever creature i want and then reanimate them next turn kinda good ngl, i might replace Promise of Power with it. And i rly dont like Skirge Familiar cause i only need to discard 1 or 2 cards sometimes. Thank you for the suggestions and the ideas tho.

couple of thoughts to possibly help with efficiency: Entomb , Gravebreaker Lamia , Final Parting , Burning-Rune Demon . i can see Filth and Vengeful Pharaoh being useful but not sure if they need to included.

Crow-Umbra on To Drown the World in Death: Araumi EDH [PRIMER]

Daedalus19876 I also pulled a Burning-Rune Demon , but sadly it isn't full art or foil. I've kept it in my stash of maybe cards for Araumi. Anything you'd consider cutting to make room for it? Only Kaldheim cards I've slotted into Araumi so far are Saw It Coming and Mystic Reflection . I've been on the fence for Rise of the Dread Marn (have it in my Brokkos build), and Ravenform . My meta is more creature heavy, so Dread Marn could help me set up defensively post boardwipe.

GoldenGolgari: I am definitely testing Mystic Reflection ! I'm considering Burning-Rune Demon , especially since I opened a full art foil in the only Kaldheim pack I've purchased. But I don't think Varagoth will go in, he's just too slow to be worth it IMO.
