I doubt Trinisphere is good in those kinds of decks (I'm running a Galazeth Prismari deck), you can't make it only affect other people like Winter Orb or Static Orb

Thanks, Sephyrias, currently I'm thinking about making a Jaheira, Friend of the Forest deck, this card makes many underplayed cards like Gingerbread Cabin become very good, still picking the background, there is no background really impress me, Cloakwood Hermit seems decent but mono green means the fewer option
Also, I'm planning on getting a Captain N'ghathrod deck and making some small change, is there any good cheap cards should put in that deck?

Nonary27 There are a lot of competitive/fringe competitive commanders in both sets.
Cormela, Glamour Thief combos with reanimator spells like Footsteps of the Goryo as long as you have cost reduction cards like Goblin Electromancer or a sac outlet that generates mana. I think she's pretty strong. Anhelo, the Painter is a grixis version of Kalamax, the Stormsire. Probably the best of the new Grixis commanders. Evelyn, the Covetous is weaker than it looks. I don't think there is an infinite blink/flicker/cloning combo piece that's also a vampire. Probably not better than Vela the Night-Clad, even with the extra color. Lord Xander, the Collector has a big impact on casual tables, but is nowhere near as relevant in competitive play. Would put him somewhere close to Evelyn.
Falco Spara, Pactweaver is an okay value engine, but you have to jump through extra hoops to go infinite with it compared to Elsha of the Infinite, so it will be a few tiers lower than Elsha. Rigo, Streetwise Mentor has to compete with Edric, Spymaster of Trest, they want to do more or less the same thing. I'm not sure if Rigo is better or worse.
Ognis, the Dragon's Lash does the same as Grand Warlord Radha. You get an extra color, but have the restriction regarding haste in exchange. Henzie "Toolbox" Torre is just a bad Grim Haruspex that can serve as pseudo-haste-enabler. Not weak, but also not very strong. Rocco, Cabaretti Caterer is a Wargate for creatures in the command zone. Might be the strongest Naya legend to date, although Marath, Will of the Wild is no joke either. Jolene, the Plunder Queen enables untap combos with Black Market Tycoon, but it just ends up being a much worse version of the Freed from the Real combos that other commanders can do.
None of the others are worth mentioning imo.
Commander Legends 2
Abdel Adrian, Gorion's Ward is similar to Lagrella, all about Fiend Hunter-type flicker/sacrifice combos. Candlekeep Sage is probably the best background for it. Alaundo the Seer is a simic version of Jhoira of the Ghitu, except that it's slower, but also draws cards. Bhaal, Lord of Murder is more or less an Odric's Outrider in the command zone, but that it only counts for nontoken creatures means you can't combo with Scurry Oak, so it's probably not that great. I think Duke Ulder Ravengard combos with Port Razer?
Gale, Waterdeep Prodigy sort of gives all your instants & sorceries flashback, which is usually very powerful. Not sure how good it ends up being in practice however. Ganax, Astral Hunter is basically just Galazeth Prismari. Kagha, Shadow Archdruid is yet another Golgari recursion commander, which are usually at least decent. Jan Jansen, Chaos Crafter goes infinite with Clock of Omens and Liquimetal Coating.

As an example, I am routinely finding a lack of utility out of Galazeth Prismari. So that's one cut I could make. Even if I get the token, and a doubler, that's 3 treasures. That's useful but not the best return on the investment.

This deck is absolutely bonkers. I just finished another playtest (not against any players; Just testing to find themes, synergies, combos, curves, etc) and ended Turn 7 with the following:
- Miirym, Sentinel Wyrm
- 2x Savage Ventmaw
- 2x Dragonborn Champion
- 2x Galazeth Prismari
- 2x Old Gnawbone
- 3x Lathliss, Dragon Queen
- 3x Utvara Hellkite
- 30x Lathliss' 5/5 Dragon tokens (Yes, thirty)
- Bramble Sovereign
- 9x Thunderbreak Regent
- 9x Terror of the Peaks
- Warstorm Surge
- Parallel Lives
- Impact Tremors
- Primal Vigor
- Temur Ascendancy
- Rhythm of the Wild
- 7x lands, Arcane Signet, Sol Ring, Mana Crypt and Dragon's Hoard
Along with (according to the screenshot) 58 cards in hand.
I "ended" the turn when I ran out of mana, lolol

Hey there thenewlollipopjam, thanks for your questions.
In my latest update I wrote about most new treasure cards from New Capenna, including Rain of Riches. I am pretty split on that one. You can check my thoughts on all those cards there.
I’ve been asked about Galazeth Prismari before. It’s a cool card that does fit in the deck, but at the end of the day it’s basically half an Inspiring Statuary in this list (which is also a Magda, Brazen Outlaw target). Urza is another better card that does a similar thing. And since both of those cards are better in tapping our treasure for mana, I did not include Galazeth as a third worse option for that effect.
Seize the Spotlight is not a card that really excites me. At best it gives you 3 treasure, which does not compete with most of the other treasure makers in this list. I also have 0 synergies with the steal side of the card (for example, sacrifice outlets to sac the stolen creatures after swinging with them). So I don’t see enough synergy to include it here.
Same is true for Terror of the Peaks. I run only 19 creatures and 0 creature token makers in this list. So Terror of the peaks is just going to sit there on the battlefield and be pretty most of the time. There isn’t enough synergy here to warrant an include.
Hope these thoughts make sense. Again, thanks for reaching out!

Treasures in edh are again getting more support from New Capenna Commander Precons, and the was wondering if you thought about including Rain of Riches or Seize the Spotlight, and was also wondering why you haven't included Terror of the Peaks or Galazeth Prismari, as both are decent tutor targets for Magda.
