Cover of Darkness


As Cover of Darkness enters the battlefield, choose a creature type.

Creatures of the chosen type have fear.

Kindred Dominance and Kindred Summons quality tribal big spells.

Cover of Darkness and Steely Resolve quality tribal protection.

Species Specialist quality tribal draw.

Gives a new meaning to toxic players, lol.

Cover of Darkness would be interesting to see in a Phyrexian tribal build.

This is a pretty good reference (I was surprised that among good reprintable cards, Capture of Jingzhou was the most expensive.)

Some neat cards that have seen little to no reprints for a long while:

I expect the various Sliver legends to make a reaprearance. Also, Mana Crypt could stand to be a less of a luxury.

mtgplayer903 Thanks, .. but what? :D

Crow-Umbra Indeed, I also have never played 5 colors before. Thank you for your suggestions, I'm still collecting suggestions and taking notes. I really like Impact Tremors, Cover of Darkness and Shared Animosity.

Myr tribal finally gets its long awaited commander. 5 color lists aren't my typical cup of tea, but I have a few things for your consideration:

I hope these suggestions are helpful. Having access to all 5 colors really opens the possibilities for tribal support.

Neat deck. I like the theme that you are going for. Here are a couple thoughts:

Maybe a few more ways to ensure your creatures connect? Any of Cover of Darkness (a bit pricey), Fear, Trailblazer's Boots, Changeling Outcast, Dauthi Voidwalker, Access Tunnel (most of your stuff is small), Whispersilk Cloak, or Prowler's Helm could work.

You only have a few non-rogue/assassin/mercenary creatures, but you could use Conspiracy or Maskwood Nexus to make every creature that you have count.

Crow-Umbra on Some Light Clerical Work

I've liked Fanatical Devotion as a free sac outlet/protection piece in Aristocrats and reanimator decks. I like Dismantling Wave as a removal piece for any of my decks with White. You could also include Dance of the Dead and Necromancy to expand on the combo potential with Leonin Relic-Warder, Animate Dead, and any of your Aristocrats pieces. Here is an explanation of the Animate Dead + Leonin Relic-Warder type loop in case you are unfamiliar with it.

Depending on your budget and meta, Cover of Darkness could be an additional anthem to help you go on the offensive if needed.

Crow-Umbra on Isshin Warriors

Thanks for the explanation Andramalech. So, to confirm some games Isshin sits in your command zone as the commander, and other times it will be Jeska & Tymna in the command zone instead? I'm familiar with how partner commanders work, I just wasn't sure if you switched between Isshin and the partners, or if you worked out an agreement with your group to have all 3 in the command zone all at once.

It seems like your deck is more thematically tied to having Samurais and Warriors as your creature types? Kinda like a pseudo-tribal. Depending on your budget, I'd recommend giving Cover of Darkness a look, especially since you already have Conspiracy in your mainboard. You could even include Maskwood Nexus as a second copy of Conspiracy if you really wanted to make sure all of your creatures are Samurai and Warriors.
