General Tazri Discussion
2 months ago
I currently have a three color Tymna/Sakashima deck that draws a lot of cards and has a lot of interaction, but my playgroup doesn't like it. I am looking toward a budget General Tazri but I'm worried it won't be powerful enough to compete with one friend's Estrid deck. How can I make Tazri as powerful as possible and do you have any other suggestions for commanders?

UpperDeckerTaco, No, not in this one. I didn’t want to build around a Food Chain combo deck and it be frowned upon with my buddies. My playgroup considers Food Chain combo decks as degenerate builds that lack creativity and fun. Because the guys feel that way is the reason why I got rid of my General Tazri and my Omnath, Locus of the Roil - Food Chain builds. The combo would definitely gear the deck closer towards being competitive. It just wasn’t what I was trying to accomplish here, but if anyone’s goal is to build around cEDH then I’d recommend building that way.

Massacar, oh, and i forgot to address the question about General Tazri. At first, I was considering that version of her for the commander, but realized that her Beacon of Unity version was better for that role. And when I made that change, I further concluded that the General Tazri version really wasn't that great if she's not the commander, so she got the axe.

I'm surprised General Tazri isn't included here as well.
If I may suggest, while you do want to get maximized value from Tazri, Beacon of Unity's ability, I would recommend cutting down your overall creature count. Even for a tribal it's creature heavy and I think cutting that category down to 36 would give the rest of your deck room to breath (counterspells, removal, draw sources, etc). Plus then you could slot in some of the spicy tribal artifacts like Coat of Arms.

That’s a good question DeinoStinkus, apparently wizards weren’t being mindful when they printed the wedges.
Even cards older than those like Sliver Overlord follow the “color wheel” that’s found on the back of every MTG card. Idk why the wekdge cards are different.
However I just seen Jodah, Archmage Eternal and his activated ability followed WUBRG color wheel but his personal CMC does not.

Unaligned Hedron Network
Legendary Tribal Artifact - Eldrazi
At the beginning of each player's upkeep, they put a 1/1 Eldrazi Scion token into play under their control. They have: "Whenever this creature where to die, you may pay , if you do, put a storage counter on ~."
Whenever ~ has five or more storage counters, transform it.
Aligned Hedron Network
Legendary Tribal Artifact - Ally
Whenever ~ transforms, exile all colorless creatures.
Ally creatures gain +X/+X, where X is the number of colors among creatures you control.
Whenever an Ally Creature dies, remove a storage counter on ~. If it has 0 storage counters on it, transform it.

abierto, Grim Tutor seems like an upgrade over Homing Sliver. It's nice to have a tutor on a body, but for as long as i've owned this deck, i've never actually used Homing Sliver's body. That sounds alot weirder than it did in my head. But yeah, I've never been interested in Homing Sliver's body - only it's ability. Grim Tutor on the other hand can get me any card in my deck for an adjustment in the CMC (from to ). I think the benefit outweighs the cost - and I will happily report in on my findings after thorough experimentation!
Oh, and in regards to Krosan Grip - you're correct. On occassion I do face a General Tazri Food Chain deck - (the commander could have changed now, as COVID has given people tons of time to brew). But i'll keep Nature's Claim in the back of mind as my meta will likely be shifting considerably in the near future.

Hey, so, something important that you should know is that if you copy a spell, say, with Mirrorpool, you won't be able to use Zada's ability on it. You still get the copy, just not the additional ones. This is because copies are not cast, they simply "exist". This is stated on Zada's Gatherer Rule information as well. Other than that, this is a very good list. Also, just to let you know, though Zada (as commander) is quite good, there is another variant where you play General Tazri as commander, and then use their ability to immediately search for Zada, effectively making Zada 5 colors for more mana. I mention this because, though the Tazri version is not perfect, playing mono-red can be repetitive and that is Zada's greatest flaw.
