Profet93: I understand, you're fine!

Fatestitcher is actually one of the newest additions to this deck, which I decided to try out after seeing it pop up in a couple top Mimeo decks. Gotta say, I'm less-than-impressed. While it is nice to get that extra activation, the couple times that I had him on the board, he didn't do much.
Fierce Guardianship is a card I can speak to, as I recently just picked one up but haven't found a spot for it yet. I'm very bad at picking what to swap out. The classic Cavern of Souls is awesome too, just never got around to trying it out.
I do like Allosaurus Shepherd as well, and I feel like he could fill the role of one of my Veils. Flail is another card that I'm not altogether familiar with, but it is interesting.
Conversely, while Skullclamp is a good card by itself, I'm really not feeling it here. Maybe I'm just overlooking the value.

I haven't really done major updates on this deck in a while, but now you have the gears turning.

I'm glad to see some of my suggestions are worth looking into. It's always worth proxying them first before spending the $, particularly with Yavimaya Hollow. I usually comment on decks with the goal to optimize them, I am in no way giving you a hard time for your choices, just wish to understand. Your response was anything but lackluster.

How has Fatesticher been for you? Aside from Fauna + Grimore, are they any other notable targets? Perhaps a Fierce Guardianship might be worth looking into given that you already run slaughter pact + pact of negation. Being able to bluff is strong.

Alternatively, given I am unaware of your meta and how much blue is rampant, Allosaurus Shepherd and Conqueror's Flail might be worth considering along with a Cavern of Souls. These repeatable sources of anti-blue might pull their weight in the right meta.

Another potential consideration is Skullclamp. Although you only have 3 creatures, it could be a deterrent to kill your commander or force their interaction pre-combat.

Some of these ideas are better than others.

Ultimately, I'm excited to see how this deck progresses.

@nbarry223 when you brought up EDH I instantly thought of cards like Deflecting Swat/Fierce Guardianship... I'm certain that if I feel the way I do about Modern then there are people that share that sentiment for EDH.

I don't know how much weight or how accurate my thoughts about cards going through standard first matters... but I figure if it goes through standard and people find the card annoying in standard (with at least just more eyes on the card and playing with the card) then it gives the community/game as a whole a better way to assess the card rather than surprise here is The One Ring! is it temporarily good? is it forever good? just deal with it for time to find out if the meta can adapt!

With the release of commander masters, Sapphire Medallion and Fierce Guardianship finally have foil reprints! ($.$)

Now that they are all spoiled, I'm glad I didn't pre-order any of the commander decks. Yes there are some nice reprints, but overall the value of the reprints just doesn't line up with the fact that the decks are double the price. And none of the new cards look like the second coming of Fierce Guardianship, which is a good thing. I'll just buy the singles I want.

I will say that the enchantment deck looks like is has the most interesting new cards to me. Composer of Spring, Ondu Spiritdancer and Ghoulish Impetus all look fun to me.

I wonder if the art direction for Exsanguinate specified just two people? The fact that it can hit all opponents is a big selling point in commander. Would have expected something more like Bloodsoaked Reveler  Flip.

At first I thought the art for Flawless Maneuver was meant for Fierce Guardianship due to the blue runes, but then I notized that it featured Orzhov characters. Weird choice, could have been gold? Guess it would be hard to distinguish from the fire.

Did anyone ask for Pianna, Nomad Captain to be reprinted? Feels weird that she's a rarity neighbor to e.g. Kemba, Kha Regent. Battle Screech is pretty underwhelming too. Isn't there better draft chaff available?

With the cost of packs I'm not sure how much the cost of cards that are expensive due to demand (like say, Heroic Intervention will actually drop, especially for mythics. I do think this will serve to crash the price of a bunch of cards that are expensive due to insufficient printings (looking at you Nesting Dragon. I'm pretty happy about the medallions and the Fierce Guardianship cycle being at rare as those are all very good cards that cost way too much.

The sealed prices are just ridiculous right now. $300 for a box of draft boosters? A single collector booster pack is $65 right now. At least the expected value won't be tied up all in a handful of mythics like in Double Masters 2.
