Elsha of the Infinite occurrence in decks from the last year

Elsha of the Infinite Discussion

I have a beginner's question to ask. Why is Elsha of the Infinite 's ability better than casting from hand? And what are the benefits of having her as commander?

I mean if you want my advise, use Kykar, Wind's Fury or Elsha of the Infinite as your cmdr. These would give you a good platform to build from.

I do like some of the new cards in Commander 2021, but I am very displeased that nearly every reprinted card in that set has already been reprinted, before, and that no cards in the older border are being updated to the new border, thus far.

Excavation technique will be a great replacement for Bramblecrush in my Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis deck.

Monologue tax is less powerful than is Smothering Tithe , but it shall be great to have that redundancy.

Archaeomancer's map is an example of how card advantage works in white, and I am glad that WotC printed that card.

Veryan, voice of duality will be awesome for the Elsha of the Infinite deck that I am building, but, with so many awesome cards in this set, I worry that I will not be able to put every one of them in that deck.

Solve the equation is exactly the spell that I was seeking, and WotC printed it only shortly after I asked if such a card would ever exist; what an amazing coincidence! I wish that it was an instant, but it will still be perfect for the Elsha of the Infinite deck that I am currently building.

Revel in silence is very nasty, and this is a rare instance in which I am very glad that a spell exiles itself upon resolution, because it would be far too powerful, otherwise.

Codie, vociferous codex is a very fascinating card, so I will be very interested to see how players use it, in the future.

Magma opus and creative outburst are both very awesome, but they are too expensive for me to seriously consider using them.

Wandering archaic looks exactly like an eldrazi, so I wonder if it has any connection to those beings? It would be awesome for some of my decks, but there is no guarantee that my opponents will have instants and sorceries (although it is usually safe to presume that they shall).

Galazeth Prismari is actually rather subdued compared to many of the card in his school, but he (the name sounds masculine) still provides excellent support for certain strategies.

Tanazir Quandix is likewise rather modest, but still excellent as a support card for decks of the appropriate colors.

Coward_Token, I agree that it is ridiculous that blue continues to have such powerful creature removal when it is supposed to be the color that is worst at removing permanents (due to its ability to counter spells), so I hope that WotC soon realizes that and stops printing such cards.

I see that all of the campuses have the same activated ability, but I still say that 4 mana is too much to scry only a single card, especially when Crystal Ball can scry 2 cards for 1 mana.

Reconstruct history is very nice, although I personally feel that it should not have been able to return a planeswalker, as that makes it too powerful.

Potion of empowerment should have been a green/white hybrid card, because I feel that green alone should not have an effect such as that.

Why does blade historian grant double strike only to attacking creatures? Why is WotC making card that force players to attack, rather than both attack and defend?

Rip apart is not too bad, but the fact that it is merely a sorcery prevents it from being useful, so I shall keep Wear / Tear in my red/white decks, instead.

It seems that there shall be a cycle of campuses and pledgemages for each school, and, thus far, I am not impressed; Lorehold pledgemage could have been good if its ability increased its toughness in addition to its power. It is not yet known if all of the campuses shall have scry, but, if they do, 4 mana to scry one card is terrible, so I shall not be using them, in any of my decks.

Elite spellbinder is very nice, as it explores new design space for white while still feeling appropriate for that color, so I am very pleased by with it.

Venerable warsinger is awesome, so I do hope that I can put it into at least one of my decks.

Dueling coach is almost entirely worse than is Mikaeus, the Lunarch , so I will not even bother with it.

On returned pastcaller, why is the hybrid symbol between the two mono-colored symbols? Would it not make more sense for it to be after the colorless mana symbol?

Strict proctor is thankfully not as annoying as Hushwing Gryff or Hushbringer , but why is WotC printing so many cards that punish permanents with enter the battlefield abilities?

Efreet flamepainter will be amazing for the Elsha of the Infinite deck that I am building, so I shall definitely get a copy of it.

I shall presume that each school shall have an uncommon legendary creature, who shall be students who are the main characters of the story, and Quintorius is acceptable, but too narrow, in my mind.

Velomachus Lorehold, the founder of the Lorehold school, is as impressive as I would expect an elder dragon to be, so, perhaps, I may put him into one of my decks, but his high mana cost is unappealing.

Given that nearly every card that was revealed today was red/white, is it now safe to presume that each day this week shall feature cards from one specific school?

Previews for Strixhaven have finally begun!

I shall first say that I am not particularly fond of the learn mechanic, because being able to obtain cards from outside the game is very powerful and prone to abuse, so I believe that that ability should have bene abandoned.

I also severely dislike the wording on Augusta, dean of order, because players do not attack, their creatures do.

Even further, Will, scholar of frost being able to unconditionally exile permanents is yet another break in blue; it does not matter that the players are given tokens to compensate for the loss of the permanents. Blue is not supposed to be able to remove permanents, other than by returning them to their owners’ hands, so why does WotC continue to give blue such powerful removal?

Why does Uvilda not use the suspend mechanic? That would have been much easier than creating an entirely new type of counter for her ability.

Willowdusk’s ability would be so much better if it could be used at any time, as the fact that it can be used only as a sorcery severely limits its usefulness.

Lisette is mostly worse than is Archangel of Thune , but it is nice to have that effect on a legendary creature, for use in EDH. However, Valentin is far too inexpensive for such a powerful effect; how did WotC think that such a card was balanced?

Breena, the demagogue is very nice, but her ability is useless in one-versus-one games, so any deck that contains her must be used only in games with three or more players.

I do like the cards in the mystical archive, but only two of them are multicolored, thus far, so I hope that more of them shall be. Another reprint of Time Warp is always welcome, to me.

The flavor text on both Blue Sun's Zenith and Krosan Grip implies that the students of Stirxhaven are aware of the existence of other planes, which is actually a nice departure from the majority of planes being utterly unaware of each other’s existences.

Ward being a new keyword is nice, so I do hope that WotC gives it to all previous cars that had it (which were admittedly not many).

Adrix and Nev render Parallel Lives obsolete, but still cannot replace Doubling Season , due to them lacking that card's other ability. Also, why has the wording been changed from "if an effect would create one or more tokens" to "if one or more tokens would be created under your control?" I dislike that, because there is a difference between a cost and an effect.

I see that the "reveal land" cycle from Shadows Over Innsitrad is the cycle that is being completed, which is nice for fans of that cycle, but disappointing, to me, as I was hoping for the "battle land" cycle from Battle for Zendikar to be completed, but I am certain that that cycle shall eventually be completed, some day.

I cannot make any room for archmage emeritus in my Riku of Two Reflections EDH deck, but that card will be great for the Elsha of the Infinite deck that I am currently constructing.
