Gale, Waterdeep Prodigy

Legendary Creature — Human Wizard

Whenever you cast an instant or sorcery spell from your hand, you may cast up to one target card of the other type from your graveyard. If a spell cast from your graveyard this way would be put into your graveyard, exile it instead.

Choose a Background (You can have a Background as a second commander.)

Comment incoming shortly kookoo.

It's been quite some time since I posted on this thread. I figured I'd start sharing some decks again. This is my Gale, Waterdeep Prodigy + Scion of Halaster list. It is meant to be high powered but not cEDH (I like durdling too much). I am pretty happy with the list and how it's been performing, but I am always open to suggestions. Additionally, I am struggling with the last creature slot between 3 options: Wizards of Thay and Gravebreaker Lamia for obvious reasons, but the new Sheoldred, the Apocalypse is further complicating my decision.

Really like this deck, very different and full of nastiness. I get the importance of inside jokes but I think Skeleton Ship can be replaced with something that might help the theme of your deck, even if you don’t rely on the guy. I think Gale, Waterdeep Prodigy with Scion of Halaster as a background would fit perfect as a Dimir commander piling death and destruction.

Some more thoughts on cards spoiled:

Jodah is really cool. Simply designed, yet enough randomness + power to make it look like a blast to play. He might be the first 5-color commander I actually have the motivation to build.

My Gale, Waterdeep Prodigy + Scion of Halaster deck got a lot of unexpected goodies from this set. Vohar is probably the most interesting

This lord cycle is straight fire. They all seem pretty strong.

Relic of Legends is strong in both nostalgia and power.

I think the return of Rith is lowkey a bigger deal than the return of Sheoldred. She is the big baddie of all the Primeval Dragons. Now that she is back, I would love to see another Primeval Dragon war. Interestingly, the last time in the lore that the Primeval's were causing havoc was during the last Phyrexian invasion. The card is pretty awesome to boot.

Weatherlight Compleated is awesome

Rivaz is realllllllly cool and he/she is making it hard to stay loyal to Lozhan for dragon tribal. I like the subtle nod to Zirilan of the Claw.

Uurg seems great for Gitrog decks.

I haven't been up on the lore since Strixhaven, but based on the spoiled cards, they seem to be getting "rid" of a lot of big name planeswalkers lately. Tamyio in Kamigawa, and now both Jaya and Ajani in this set. I like that they aren't afraid to potentially (or in the case of Jaya, actually) kill off main characters. Everything feels too sunshine and rainbows if there are no major losses.

Sephyrias on Best Commanders in EDH [Tier List] Part 1

Nonary27 There are a lot of competitive/fringe competitive commanders in both sets.

New Capenna

Lagrella, the Magpie serves as Fiend Hunter in the command zone, letting you do sacrifice combos with Karmic Guide. She'll probably end up somewhere close to Saffi Eriksdotter.

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.

Baba Lysaga, Night Witch, Bane, Lord of Darkness, Dynaheir, Invoker Adept, Gorion, Wise Mentor and Jaheira, Friend of the Forest have a lot of combo potential, but I'm not sure how to break them yet.
