Gahiji, Honored One Discussion

Same as _neighbor with regards to the expected quality of the Naya legends. I like that Marisi (and to a lesser extent neo-Tahngarth) plays in the same space as Gahiji, Honored One , that kind of aikido-esque use of enemy resources against each other (as opposed to just directly against themselves) is a neat use of the multiplayer part of EDH,

CaliburnAO on Rienne Recursion

Good start to a deck. Rienne looks like an interesting build, and the built-in recursion is pretty powerful. If I might suggest a few cards that work really well with her; Dauntless Escort , Saffi Eriksdotter and Qasali Pridemage are all cards that self-sacrifice with powerful effects that Rienne, Angel of Rebirth lets you re-use. These cards will help to make your board more sticky and keep Rienne around to keep chugging out that value.

Theres a ton of other multicolored creatures that have reusable effects when they enter, like Duergar Hedge-Mage , Knight of Autumn and Tolsimir, Friend to Wolves . If token making is something you're interested in, then Conclave Cavalier and Trostani's Summoner can do a decent job. If you want some good aggressive finisher cards, theres Gahiji, Honored One and Knight of New Alara who can pump your board pretty nicely, as well as the liege cycle from Lorwyn.

Rienne also likes Sacrifice outlets, so Evolutionary Leap , Brion Stoutarm and some of the card-draw spells like Life's Legacy can generate some serious value.

Since the deck is three color, getting the right mana on time might be a bit of a problem. You could do with swapping some of the basics out for some tri-color lands, like Command Tower and Jungle Shrine , and using cheap fetches like Evolving Wilds , Terramorphic Expanse and Krosan Verge can help you get the lands you need as you need them. Replacing cards like Safewright Quest with things like Farseek , Kodama's Reach and Skyshroud Claim are also going to help, as you can never have enough mana in an EDH game, as we all know.

Your deck is also pretty light on removal, stuff like Swords to Plowshares , Sylvan Reclamation , Return to Dust , Generous Gift and Beast Within can get rid of troublesome creatures or permanents that threaten you or stop you winning with creatures. While they aren't flashy, sometimes you just need to get rid of that Rest in Peace before it does too much damage.

Thats my take on just some of the cards I figure could improve the deck, but I'm no expert. Play around with it and see what you like. If you find yourself struggling to cut cards, here's a list of what I feel are the weakest links in your deck, in no particular order; Chandra, Fire Artisan - You have access to better card draw and the burn shouldn't be super relevant most games. Dryad Militant , Vernadi Shieldmate , Skyknight Vanguard , Boros Swiftblade and Sunhome Guildmage all seem fairly low impact. Fatal Frenzy seems odd as your creatures aren't super large, and your commander isn't going to easily win by Commander Damage. War's Toll and Mana Web seem like filler slots, but maybe these help against your local meta?

Hopefully some of this helps, I look forward to seeing how the deck develops in the future.

Hi KongMing, thank you for asking! I feel honored to serve as an example for your Hub :-)
Feel free to use my decks as references! You can also have a look at my Gahiji, Honored One deck. Naya token swarm
My playgroup is sadly not that disciplined to keep their decklists online, like I do. So sadly I can't offer you other reference lists.
Good luck with your Hub and feel free to share a link for the Hub in the comments here ;-)

Hmm looking through your decklist, I feel like you could profit from some more early ramp, and from cutting some win more cards. I like the inclusion of Armageddon etc, however Ghaji just feels like you don't really need him.

I would cut Avacyn, Angel of Hope , Child of Alara , Gahiji, Honored One , Sliver Queen , Terminus , Hallowed Burial , Merciless Eviction , Pillar of Origins , Herald's Horn , Door of Destinies , Darksteel Forge , Call to the Kindred .

Instead I would Play Nature's Lore , Three Visits , Search for Tomorrow , Skyshroud Claim , Vampiric Tutor , Fellwar Stone , Fact or Fiction , Intruder Alarm , Living Death , Patriarch's Bidding , Teferi's Protection , Mana Drain

Chhris on The Onion, Gahiji, w/ salty hate and infect

Hi!! great deck idea. First things first, you're running such a comprehensive ramp package that 36/37 lands is enough. 41 is way too much, and that makes room for cards you wanna add.

secondly, when you edit, simply put Gahiji, Honored One CMDR in the list, and then Gahiji will appear as the commander of your deck, and he will appear in the lost, rather than the sideboard.

Infect is not often seen in Naya colours. +1

Thank you sooo much PhotogenicParasympathetic! I run a non-U political deck (feat. Thantis, the Warweaver and Gahiji, Honored One and the like) and OHMYGOODNESS Pharika's gonna kill in that baby!

Also love your name. That is all.

This deck actually started with a lot of commanders, chiri. Thantis, the Warweaver and Gahiji, Honored One were two big ones, but Mathas, Fiend Seeker , Queen Marchesa , Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire , Selvala, Explorer Returned , and perhaps my favorite (mostly because he's such an underrated political piece) Zurgo Helmsmasher are all incredibly fearsome and piles of fun. Not only that, but after the attacks are forced, Tariel, Reckoner of Souls is a very neat fella to toy around with.
