Legendary Creature — Human Ally
When General Tazri enters the battlefield, you may search your library for an Ally creature card, reveal it, put it into your hand, then shuffle your library.
: Ally creatures you control get +X/+X until end of turn, where X is the number of colours among those creatures.

General Tazri Discussion

With Bumps gone, I just feel this deserves an Update...
I am at a status this needs a Part 3. But I have to ask before doing so (SPOILER ALERT: Part 3 WILL Happen no matter one; & it includes the Ravnican Comparisons (Even after WAR.), & what we got so far for Color Identity confirmation.): are you guys even interested anymore? I actually still am. I just need your help is all. Thanks for helping so far. & , I can completely understand the HUGE amount of Complications from 3+ Colors. I'm just trying to do 5 Personality Traits entirely for each Color Identity & nothing more/less. I just need help more than ever now... Thanks for all this. I just want more Traits, & less complications of Color Identity issues...
Thanks for all the help thus far. I didn't think we'd make to this far...
Oh, & if Ramos, Dragon Engine , Najeela, the Blade-Blossom , Jodah, Archmage Eternal (Who is technically /Jeskai.), General Tazri , Morophon, the Boundless , Golos, Tireless Pilgrim , Sisay, Weatherlight Captain , & now, Kenrith, the Returned King can all count as , nearly more than all other true 5 Colors, I really need more help than ever to complete this campaign. Who still wants to do this? (SPOILER ALERT: It won't matter if you say no... Eheheh...)

Oddly, clayperce, since I made this username several years ago, my favorite plane has changed dramatically, from Zendikar to Ravnica to Tarkir to, finally, Alara. If you're curious as to why, we should talk about it on my wall, not here.
Riffing off of your reprint quandaries, I wonder whether WotC is making an artifact subtheme in Zendikar again? Life, it's cool if they do, but I would kinda prefer that that be on the backburner, we get a couple reprints, like maybe Adventuring Gear , Stoneforge, and possibly Slab Hammer to more easily enable landfall. I would really prefer for us to get a new mechanic that feels adventurous (and no, while there's no way they're bringing it back so soon, Adventure would really not be a bad fit).
Well, fadelightningmm, I guess that's what I get for not looking on the wiki first. Still, it would be pretty bad ass if this was the plot to Zendikar rising- not using Rayami, but perhaps Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim . Narratively, the block would be a way for Zendikar to symbolically overcome its past. And by extension, of course, to truly and finally overcome the Eldrazi. Ayli's story would be that of someone who, when everything she knew was shattered before her, chose to cling to the pieces rather than moving on. It would be super cool if, rather than her death ending the story, she lives and learns to move on. Perhaps she even earns the respect of General Tazri sometime later, or the general decides to take Ayli under her wing in order to help her move on. Remember, that plays into Tazri's story arc quite a bit as well. The inability to move on is something that each of them has experience with, and learning to live with regret and make the most of it is a perinent message today.

Thanks for the quick reply ShaperSavant!
- It would be great to have more example decks linked for High Power! Thanks for finding examples so quickly :)
- I understand the broader point you're trying to make, but Dakkon Blackblade offers no synergy to the Esper Naus/Grace plan, which is not true for any of the decks I listed.
- Piggy-backing on the #2, you have many decks that DO synergize with their commanders that are outclassed (i.e. General Tazri or the plethora of other UGx Food Chain commanders. What if someone wants to play a Razaketh, the Foulblooded + Leonin Relic-Warder strat without having to play partners? Ambassador Laquatus is thoroughly outclassed by Urza, Lord High Artificer .
- Two of the 4 decks I referenced (Edgar and Blue Pod) have been updated TODAY!! The Teeg and Laquatus lists you referenced haven't been updated in almost a YEAR. Part of why I keep harping on these decks is that they're well-written primers geared specifically toward cEDH. I don't know very many up-to-date Mid Power decks that fall into that category, or I would be championing them as well ;)

(CAUTION: A Huge List of CMDRS dead ahead. If you can't comply, remember that I apologized for the huge wall.)
Well, I was just told how to do a Folder, but to choose what for decks is another thing entirely. Especially if such decks are either:
A: What Everyone Plays B: Are good, but have since been outdated by a year C: Are Tribal Leaders in a Specific Sense (No Morophon, the Boundless please.) D: Not Underdog CMDRs. E: Other.
Let's Just assume we use that cEDH Deck Tier List One-by-One; but w/ a new rule for Playtesting such decks so none of the cEDH Decks win out of overall ratios ~100% of the time; CHANNELFIREBALL-style. That said, From using the Tier List, I require the following CMDR Decks to not have cEDH Level Power, but are these:
The First Sliver (Not as a Sliver Tribe Leader)
Animar, Soul of Elements (Morph Decks not allowed.)
Baral, Chief of Compliance (Get your Counterspells Ready!)
General Tazri (Mandatory Ally Tribe Leader)
Scion of the Ur-Dragon (Possible Dragon Tribe Leader)
Tier 3: WIP
But, yeah, you get the picture, right? Since I can't find such decks on my own to put in such a folder for decks worth testing against your own. Rules are as follows though:
Each deck must not be of cEDH-level power; just imagine how much hell I'd have to playthrough against something just to beat a Thrasios/Tymna Partners deck just to have my claim on this notion nullified.
Decks must include CMDRs that are Popular, were Popular as well as Tribal Decks w/ Good Tribe Leaders (For example: The First Sliver & Sliver Queen do not fit this category where Sliver Overlord does fit the Sliver Tribe Leadership. Scion of the Ur-Dragon & The Ur-Dragon can both count as Dragon Tribe CMDRs. Atraxa, Praetors' Voice is actually a bad CMDR to use in Superfriends, but Shines in all Counter Life. Make good use of that instead of making a 4< Color Walkers Deck. The rulings go on...)
I know this is too much for now, but I'm making a folder for Playtesting w/ decks as everyone kept telling me to do so; now I want to hold my end of the Bargain. But I seriously need help from you to do this. If you can find any decks here to add to such a Folder, put it on the comments below.
(& no, It's not like it's a personal thing! Anyone is allowed to use it when it's finished!)

Hello again. I'm throwing around ideas and what do you think of Geode Golem + Sisay, Weatherlight Captain or General Tazri to tutor out Zada? And what about spellslinger and Talrand, Sky Summoner / Noyan Dar, Roil Shaper / Jeskai Ascendancy -like spells and free range spells like Manamorphose / Gitaxian Probe / Invigorate ? And if we are doing token/clone stuff I would think Blood Artist / Falkenrath Noble / Poison-Tip Archer would be a good wincon.

Food chain First sliver combo Show
The combo has 3 components:
A cast-from-exile (CFE) creature ( Eternal Scourge , Misthollow Griffin , Squee, the Immortal )
Our commander, The First Sliver
To execute the combo: cast Food Chain , exile your utility creatures for FC mana, cast Eternal Scourge , exile for mana. Repeat for infinite FC mana. Cast and exile The First Sliver until you've cascaded through your library.
From there, you have cascaded Laboratory Maniac into play, cascade Tainted Pact or Consultation to exile lands, and set up to draw a card. You can also Timetwister (or Memory's Journey) + Noxious Revival loop Extract to exile opposing decks or make infinite Swan Song swans.
About Urza, Lord High Artificer . As of the state if he should belong in tier 1 is up for debate but you can not deny that he's is better then Teferi, Temporal Archmage not saying that Teferi is bad, Urza, Lord High Artificer is simple faster. Don't Make the same mistake I did , do your research or read the comments before this one.

@buildingadeck - The First Sliver has replaced General Tazri and Niv-Mizzet Reborn as the premier 5 color Food Chain commander for competitive. It's not going anywhere any time soon unless The RC decides to ban Food Chain.

Hey The_Raven_Guy, What're my thoughts on The First Sliver ? Well, it's an amazing addition to Slivers as a tribe, and adds a whole new dimension of deck construction by giving a viable cEDH Sliver commander. Specifically, this would be an excellent alternative food chain commander outside of Prossh, Skyraider of Kher and General Tazri . One particular list I'm a fan of is ShaperSavant's Food Chain Sliver cEDH build. I don't think it will ever overshadow Prossh , but it definitely outshines General Tazri as you aren't dependent on an outlet ( Kalastria Healer , Hagra Diabolist , or Halimar Excavator ) to win the game. With First you simply cast your whole deck and win with something...almost anything really. It offers more variety with your wincon selection.
Outside of cEDH, First is just plain fun. With a Sliver tribal deck (such as mine) you can simply flood the board with permanents, and turn a relatively bare battlefield on turn 5 to something that looks like you're on turn 9 or 10. In this deck, First took the slot of Dormant Sliver - who in my opinion is woefully underrated. Going from to isn't quite the best feeling...but in the long run I think is worth the sacrifice.
