Ajani, Strength of the Pride may replace Elspeth Tirel as it essentially does the same thing and acts as a board wipe for the opponent.

Niv Mizzet, Guildmaster

Legendary Planeswalker - Niv

{Whenever you cast a spell that is two or more colors, scry 1. Then If it is three or more colors, draw a card.}

+3 Add three mana in any one color. Until end of turn, Niv Mizzet, Guildmaster has ": Deal 1 damage to any target."

-3 Draw three cards, then discard two cards. You may return another card from your graveyard to your hand.

-14 Exile all nonland permanents you don't control. Each opponent gets an emblem with "You may only cast one spell per turn."


Like Elspeth Tirel , Niv Mizzet, Guildmaster is meant to cycle between his +3 and -3. You get the mana to cast big spells, Then, you get card advantage and filter out your hand as need be. Then, you get the mana to cast big spells and draw some more.

The option to deal damage is put in because it's interesting and allows more interaction. Let's you kill off other Planeswalkers, threats on the board, or just destroy your opponent if you are sitting on 5 - 6 red mana. Disgusting with Neheb, the Eternal .

If you happen to get his ultimate, you've won the game.

Give us an Omnath Planeswalker. He can be mono-green, Gruul or Temur.

Hey, since you upvoted my

Ghired Dead Redemption

Commander / EDH* TypicalTimmy


deck, I wanted to let you know that I've been making revisions.

First and foremost, I removed Hazezon Tamar because he is too much money for a single card, his ability doesn't trigger right away, you can't ramp into him appropriately (Using stones means less tokens), and the tokens leave when he does.

I also removed the "Wincons" section, because I figure I am going to be generating a ton of hate from the other three players; If my creatures are constantly dying and my board is being wiped, creature-based win conditions mean nothing. So, instead I replaced them with boardstate protection to stop my guys from being blown off the face of the mat.

Lastly, I added in four sweepers myself, in the event I just need to reset the game and rebuild. Each of the sweepers will actually generate me value, such as Hour of Reckoning as it protects my creature tokens from being blown up.

I may consider dropping a few Superfriends, perhaps down to 4. I have the following ones for the following reasons:

As you can see, there is a theme here: Mana & Life. Keeps the engines going.

If I drop any, it will be Freyalise and Huatli as they feel the weakest, being only viable for one option.

Ajani and Elspeth both generate mass amounts of life and have sweepers built in that give me advantage. They can also generate tokens, if need be.

Domri and Xenagos both offer me mana, give me tokens, and allow me to either filter the top four or merely play the top seven.

Frey and Hualti just give me a dork and some life. Frey can get me some serious draw if she sticks around, but Hualti is basically a one-trick pony.

just want to first say that this looks like a good start and a fun deck, so good job with that

cards i would highly consider: Aerial Responder , Ballyrush Banneret , Brimaz, King of Oreskos , Preeminent Captain , Tajic, Blade of the Legion , Boros Charm , Path to Exile , Lightning Bolt , Elspeth Tirel (take advantage of indestructibility)

cards i could see work: Anax and Cymede , Mentor of the Meek , Odric, Master Tactician , Thalia, Heretic Cathar

I don't want to completely change up your deck to the point that it doesn't feel like it's your deck, so make whatever changes you feel comfortable with. i can maybe help if you give me a clearer picture of your budget, the direction you want to take you deck both in terms of competitiveness (assuming it's more casual atm) and in terms of style of play (not sure b/c it's not straight up aggro beat face win with odric, captain of the watch, etc.), but also i haven't been in the magic scene in years and never competitively so take everything with a grain of salt haha

my thoughts for the deck were to win by/in combination of General damage Tokens by the general, Elspeth, Sun's Champion , Elspeth, Knight-Errant , Elspeth Tirel , Assemble the Legion Etc etc theres a few more but im at work cant think of all the token generators

A few walker. Ultimate and beats downs from walkers like gideon.

Either works really. I've found Knight-Errant to be a little faster with a table of aggressive decks, but Sun's Champion has more raw power.

Realistically, any White planeswalker that can create a token the turn they enter is a viable candidate for an Oathbreaker of this deck:

Gideon, Ally of Zendikar

Elspeth Tirel

Serra the Benevolent

Ajani, Strength of the Pride .

You want an Oathbreaker that will give you shuffle fodder for Oblation immediately.

I feel like Elspeth Tirel should be a bit higher. With cards like Forge of Heroes or any one proliferate effect she can instant reset the board which I feel is pretty strong considering that it hits all oathbreakers. She is one of the few planeswalkers who can boardwipe like this too. Most other destroy thing planeswalkers only hit certain permanent types or have color restrictions or require more than one loyalty added to them before being used.

Also feel like Chandra, Flamecaller is a little to low. The ability to wheeel constantly is pretty powerful and she also can clear the board.

Think the ones I mentioned can maybe be moved up a rank.
