General Tazri Discussion

Daveslab2022 on Maro teases about upcoming Zendikar …

That’s a good question DeinoStinkus, apparently wizards weren’t being mindful when they printed the wedges.

Golos, Tireless Pilgrim, Niv-Mizzet Reborn Reaper King The First Sliver General Tazri Scion of the Ur-Dragon

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.

A bit odd, sure, but I see it as kinda a mix of Awakening Zone and General Tazri. Just a fun constantly active card.

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.

Hello everyone!!!

I’m building my first edh homebrew after playing with the symbiotic swarm deck with my roommates for awhile and I fell hard for the format but now I’m stuck between the two following generals for my first brew.

Najeela, the Blade-Blossom Warrior Tribal

General Tazri Allies Tribal.

I’ve been doing research on edhrec about which cards they can main but I’m still unable to decide which one I should go with.

My big question is to figure out which one would be more aggro and which one can work the best with my 3 "pet" cards

1.Sorin Markov

2.Debt to the Deathless

3.Revel in Riches

I’ll look at everyones opinions and I’ll post my decklist afterwards for tips and questions.

Thanks guys!!!

dingusdingo: If you have a look at MOST Tazri lists, they run all three of the aforementioned allies. This is because Food Chain, a CFE creature and General Tazri is not a win condition. Tazri still has to tutor up one of the actual outlet creatures. Because if you run just one of them and lose access to it due to self exile, even with FC, a CFE creature and Tazri, you still can't win the game. Sot it's not a matter or "Whether your favorite Tazri list runs 3 outlets instead of 1 doesn't really matter to me", it's actually a matter of basically every Tazri list running multiple win conditions so they don't brick their deck.

You never once made mention about how this deck could run a hulk package, especially since you liked running Nomads en-Kor which is a white card and such can't be run in the deck.

My first comment explained the value of having the commander be part of your win conditon loop. Your first comment was "why is this deck a thing?" like somehow this deck is being thrust upon you such that you have to play it. My comment to you was simply, you didn't need to comment on somebody else's deck for the sole reason of telling them that their deck is less good than other options out there, and this was only after providing a simple explanation (to another user) about the benefit of having a win condition in the command zone and you arguing with me about it.

While that comment was made to highlight your actions, please be assured that I have zero interest in posting anything on you lists, given the vitriol I have been met with while simply trying to explain something.

Parosox: Apologies about this getting derailed on your list. I have seen other whale wolf decks running an package Aluren with Cavern Harpy since these two also form an infinite loop. While your current build isn't an Aluren one, yo ucould lean into it a bit as there is a good overlap between FC and aluren cards.

RNR_Gaming: the benefit of having your win condition in the command zone with a Food Chain deck is super useful as you can go deep with Tainted Pact/Demonic Consultation naming food chain with zero fear that you're going to hit your win condition unlike General Tazri or the first sliver who enable the combo but aren't actually win conditions in their own right. This means that overall you actually free up slots, as you don't have to run any redundancy on your win condition.

no, commander color identity includes all colors in the text box. if you were running General Tazri as your commander, you could include Trostani Discordant in your deck though.
