Sephyrias on Best Commanders in EDH [Tier List]

Could Vela the Night-Clad have "Tier 3: High Power" potential? She wins the game pretty easily with the Naru Meha, Master Wizard + Cackling Counterpart combo.

That Vela costs 6 definitely keeps her out of "Tier 2: Fringe Competetive", but that she is a win-con in the command zone for multiple combo types seems decent.

Hey, I brewed a similar deck! Here's my list if you wanna look at it for ideas! You've already reminded me of a card that I think would be a good fit for it! One note about your above comment though, if you've only got Krark and Sakashima out and cast Cackling Counterpart and win one of the two flips, you would only get one copy of Krark since the original card is put back into your hand and one copy is made.

Apex_killjoy02 So the whole deck is centered around Krark and Sakishima's ability to delete the legendary rule for yourself. So when you cast Sakishima you would copy Krak, then you would cast something like Cackling Counterpart targeting sakishima (who would be copying Krark), you flip 2 coins (I roll dice because it much faster) and even if you only win one of those flips you still get 2 sakishimas AND it goes back in your hand so you can do it AGAIN

Hey! Love the deck, got a few suggestions I think would fit really well in here.

Eidolon of Countless Battles is great for obvious reasons, he'll get huge, with all of these enchantments, he's a spirit, keeps in line with your low mana curve, and quite cheap.

Geist of Saint Traft is a great card, hexproof makes him a great target for your auras, he's a spirit, he makes fliers. A nice card to have a couple of. I'd probably swap him in for your Warden of Evos Isle s since your spells only cost two or three mana.

Followed Footsteps might be a possible replacement for Cackling Counterpart if you can handle the extra mana cost. It fits in great with your theme and can get out of hand pretty quickly in a multiplayer game.

Felidar Umbra is a neat aura to protect your best creatures from any potential removal thrown your way. Also the life gain is a nice way to outpace any other aggressive decks at the table.

Bident of Thassa is the last piece I think would be great for your deck. With all of your evasive fliers, you're sure to fill your hand back up real quick. and that activated ability can quickly put an end to a stalemate. Plus it's an enchantment.

Neotrup on If I play Sakashima of …

Yes, a copy of Myojin of Seeing Winds cast from hand will enter with a Divinity counter, regardless of whether the original has a Divinity Counter. This is true whether you keep both, using a copy like Sakashima of a Thousand Faces or Sakashima the Impostor that lets you keep both, or a regular copy like Clone or Clever Impersonator. Token copies aren't cast, even if the spell that makes them is, so Cackling Counterpart or Spitting Image won't give you the Divinity counter.

king-saproling Dude, thank you for catching the Tribute Mage thing! I was trying to avoid having a confusing board-state with copy engines like Zada, Hedron Grinder or Beamsplitter Mage so I will trying leaving them out this iteration. Dockside Extortionist and Peregrine Drake look like too much value for me to pass on. I'll probably pull in Cackling Counterpart over Quasiduplicate and either Murmuring Mystic or Docent would probably help my survival rate. I was torn on Knowledge Pool, it doesn't trigger if I return the spell to my hand... is there something I'm missing?
