Drana and Linvala

Legendary Creature — Vampire Angel

Flying, vigilance

Activated abilities of creatures your opponents control can't be activated.

Drana and Linvala has all activated abilities of all creatures your opponents control. You may spend mana as though it were mana of any colour to activate those abilities.

No problem dude! Glad to help, truly.

As a longtime brewer of this particular Commander, I'm definitely seeing a few cards here that I would cut in favor of more card draw, Ramp, Tutors, & Interaction to get you to your power pieces like Vilis, Broker of Blood. Please don't take this the wrong way, but it will be a shorter list to include the things that I would personally keep in the list, sans Lands. Here we go:

Creatures: Vilis, Broker of Blood, Rune-Scarred Demon, Burning-Rune Demon, Ancient Gold Dragon, Drana and Linvala, Mother of Runes, Giver of Runes, Grand Abolisher & Serra's Emissary

Artifacts: All Mana Rocks CMC 2 or less, Swiftfoot Boots & Lightning Greaves.

Enchantments: Dragon Tempest, Phyrexian Arena & Phyrexian Reclamation.

Instants: Boros Charm, Swords to Plowshares, h Path to Exile.

Sorceries: Damn, Diabolic Tutor & Seize the Spoils.

Everything outside of these ones should be replaced with value pieces imo! I'd also heavily recommend that you pick up a copy of Razaketh, the Foulblooded. It was just reprinted in Commander Masters, and is hovering around ~$8 at the time of this post! It was just like $25-$30 a little while ago. Insane. I'd also recommend looking through the Dominaria Remastered set, lots of spicy reprints in there that have taken a price plunge & could be great here like Sneak Attack & Gamble.

8cardalchemy on Help me Build a Basic …

3 months ago

Hi All,

I want to build an Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper // Tymna the Weaver life gain commander deck. It will be used for semi-casual play at a LGS, so good players with decent decks but not a lot of bonkers combos going off by turn 5.

I have never been amazing a cooking up commander decks that actually function, especially on a budget. Can anyone help me put together a basic/affordable decklist that I can expand on with more expensive cards later (let's say sub $200, preferably closer to $100, price is a little flexible)?

So far, I have the following cards that I know will work here:

Deathrite Shaman Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose Swords to Plowshares Dina, Soul Steeper Voice of the Blessed Kambal, Consul of Allocation Willowdusk, Essence Seer Vampire Nighthawk Drana and Linvala Rodolf Duskbringer Rampant Growth Farseek

I also own both commanders, so that's $30 I don't need to worry about.

Any help is appreciated.

Steel Hellkite, Karmic Guide & Drana and Linvala are good places to start.

Other options like Rune-Scarred Demon, Burning-Rune Demon & Vilis, Broker of Blood are a few bucks each, but worth it.

I would second Poprox's suggestion to add Bloodthirster. It's strictly better than Scourge of the Throne in this deck, so I would replace it for that. Though he's no angel/demon/dragon, I think Isshin, Two Heavens as One can also prove very useful. Drana and Linvala should be a maybe- or sideboard consideration at least, as they have exceptionally powerful, versatile potential.

I don't see the problem with this deck. Not at all. However, I have some suggestions to make it even more "fun" for Kevin:

It would be based on Drana and Linvala's power. When something uses its own name in the text of an ability (without specifically saying something like "a card named N"), it means "this object right here". If something else gains that ability, it will keep the "this object" meaning, so in your example that means Drana and Linvala will have an ability that says "Add an amount of equal to Drana and Linvala's power".

Since Marwyn, the Nurturer's activated ability says "Add green equal to Marwyn's power", Drana and Linvala's activated ability would say the same. Would Drana and Linvala look at my opponent's Marwyn's power to tap for mana or would it just tap for 0?
