Command the Dreadhorde Discussion

Righteous Aura is a pet card of mine for any deck I run White in. Got an especially fun combo in my lifegain deck with that and Command the Dreadhorde

TypicalTimmy thanks! I missed that Lili, going to make room for her now. I'm trying a build that's fairly low to the ground aside from an infinite mana combo in Magus of the Coffers + Umbral Mantle, trying to win with the discard damage and just 1-2 activations of Tinybones. So hopefully I won't need Doubling Cube. But I can always steal it from my Kozilek deck if I need it :)

Also going to fit in Command the Dreadhorde...

Major update made, moved the deck more towards a strategy using board wipes and mass recursion spells to better control overall game tempo. Considered swapping in Elenda, the Dusk Rose as the commander given the new rule change but decided to leave her in the 99 for now.

I'm working on an Elenda deck too. Not an expert but I can tell you to look out for some board wipes like Dusk / Dawn or Tragic Arrogance. They serve much the same function as Final Judgment or Settle the Wreckage but leave Elenda alive and buffed after the carnage.

Teysa Karlov is worth hunting down. She doubles the death triggers to add counters to Elenda, then she doubles the death trigger to produce tokens when Elenda dies. THEN she provides an anthem to all those tokens she just helped make. Just so much value when they're paired together.

Blade of the Bloodchief basically triples the output of Elenda's native ability. Not dirt cheap, but definitely worth hunting down a copy.

Fallen Ideal - Really works way better than it has any right to. Feels like it was built for Elenda.

Gift of Immortality isn't necessarily as important as the above options but it is absolutely rad.

Command the Dreadhorde takes advantage of your life gain sub theme, while serving to not only get Elenda back but anything else you take a fancy to across the entire board. Certainly not as slick and synergistic as the above options, but I like it.

Doesn't seem bad! I'd highly suggest Command the Dreadhorde

I dont like Command the Dreadhorde because this commander can win before turn 6. Its a really good card in mill decks but I dont think its on flavor for tokens. Panharmonicon is good with Ayara, so is Epicure of Blood since youre running the blood/bond combo. Oathsworn Vampire and Gravecrawler put in a lot of work with Pitiless Plunderer and Ashnod's Altar

DadHumanPraetor Yeah i wanna replace Sanitarium Skeleton for something else.

Gray Merchant of Asphodel was already listed, i didnt use Nightmare Shepherd because It doesnt work with tokkens and i dont wanna exile my creatures for Command the Dreadhorde in the late game.

Im thinking about the ikoria new enchantment Bastion of Remembrance what u think?

Would personally cut (at least to see how it plays) Mire Triton and place in some number of Tamiyo, Collector of Tales. Good graveyard dump plus recursion, deece body against aggression, and fuel for Command the Dreadhorde
