king-saproling, thank you for your suggestions :) Training Grounds would be awesome indeed, but I can't afford that card. I have a hard time evaluating Hope of Ghirapur , but maybe it would be a good idea to add Sevinne's Reclamation then, as I have a couple of cards that sacrifice themselves. I din't have Esior, Wardwing Familiar on my radar as a cheap flyer with an alright effect, so thank you.

latly i have been running Esior, Wardwing Familiar & Kodama of the East Tree
its a typical simic deck (mana loop, pick up the deck, drop walking)
but i've been surprised how well Esior, Wardwing Familiar functions especially in 1v1
consistent early access to a flyer that is hard to remove has made Esior, Wardwing Familiar on of my favorite commanders

@ DemMeowsephs Thank you for the suggestions! Voltron is a new way of playing for me as well! Yeah, unfortunately adding kaho and eisor would mess up the polymorph plan. Though with Thassa, God of the Sea , Kaho, Minamo Historian , and especially Esior, Wardwing Familiar I think they still have potential as Polymorph/Voltron commanders, with them having a lower converted mana cost and built in evasion, something to look at in the future! The cheap removal cards you recommended were on my radar as well, added them to the maybe board if I find myself needing better interaction!

I agree as well with the recast able unlockable effects! I run Artful Dodge in my Rielle, the Everwise deck! The Crab and our Blightsteel Colossus payoff don't typically need more than one or two attacks to eliminate a player, so it might work! With a primary gameplan to sacrifice the Crab for a polymorph, I'm a little hesitant to include too many enchantment aura effects that make our creatures unblockable, though on the other hand, it could be better in terms of tempo, getting faster crab attacks in the early game. Something to playtest in the future I think!

Hey there! Voltron is indeed a load of fun (check out my Voltron deck, yes shameless plugs), and I may just have some suggestions for you that I have found in my Voltron journey!

I think purely thematically Jeska, Thrice Reborn HAS to be 002. You can def make a case for Tana, the Bloodsower, but I think Jeska is just a stronger choice.

As for 016...

Jeska, Thrice Reborn + Esior, Wardwing Familiar / Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker because of the whole Jian mythical bird story. Some sort of flying tribal (the Franxx can fly... I think... at least 002's can) or Vehicle Tribal.

Jeska, Thrice Reborn + Kraum, Ludevic's Opus could be the two of them becoming "one" towards the end of the show. Focus on Voltron-ing Kraum.

Jeska, Thrice Reborn + Silas Renn, Seeker Adept just because one's a dude, one's a girl, and each share their respective color palettes that the show has.

If you did go with Tana, the Bloodsower you could use Ardenn, Intrepid Archaeologist to go more of a dinosaur tribal route for those Naya colors and pack it with Gishath, Sun's Avatar and Zacama, Primal Calamity for flavor fun.
