Prismatic Omen seems like it would be reliable in the deck. [serra's sanctum] would be helpful, but expensive. Go-Shintai of Life's Origin seems pretty versatile here too. If you removed the tri lands and added Tricycle lands (example: Indatha Triome) you could play Emeria, the Sky Ruin, since you're playing plains searches... It would be a late game strategy.

There isn't a rhino-specific commander, but what traits do rhinos have? Bulky bodies, a lot of trample and trample-ish evasion, and some stall with cards like Stonehorn Dignitary and Rhox Meditant.

I would say look for a subtheme and choose a commander based on that. Dragonlord Dromoka and Karametra, God of Harvests are good utility options for protection and ramp, respectively. If you're pumping the Rhinos, Sovereign Okinec Ahau pushes that into overdrive.

I got a lot of these decks in need of commanders. Please send over suggestions for

Enchantments: Citadel of Pain + Manabarbs + Personal Sanctuary sort of thing. I know Go-Shintai of Life's Origin exists, but I'm not interested in adding and/or to this one.

Curses and curse themed Auras: Lynde, Cheerful Tormentor + Eriette of the Charmed Apple. Again, I'm not interested in adding .


"Bleeder" attrition: Value over time. Awakening Zone, Suture Priest, Kambal, Consul of Allocation, that sort of thing.

Beyond Reach


Dredge 10

Whenever Beyond Reach leaves your graveyard, exile all cards from all graveyards.

Each player mills cards equal to the number of cards they own in exile.

The voices of the lost are growing louder. "Remember me! Remember!" But their cries are futile.

I think I got it. The more you use and dredge it, the less you're able to control it, and the graveyard exile prevents basic discard-and-dredge graveyard filling. Any thoughts?

Create a mono-blue or mono-black legendary creature card with a five color identity, along the lines of Najeela, the Blade-Blossom, Go-Shintai of Life's Origin, or Kenrith, Returned King.

What's the mana value of this thread? I'm about to Reanimate it. I'd like to see more four-color stuff. Unlife mentioned this earlier, but I'd like to expand on the thought.

Four-color cards are especially hard to design and make meaningful, per Mark Rosewater. I'm willing to grant that. Right now, though, I'm trying to line out a Curse deck that uses Lynde, Cheerful Tormentor and Eriette of the Charmed Apple. Breya, Etherium Shaper, has absolutely no synergy, and the best partner options, in my opinion, are just kind of generically useful.

(I know Go-Shintai of Life's Origin is an option, but I don't see having a deep role in this deck, and it feels a little too "five-color good stuff" for me. It's off-theme and is offering stuff I'm not sure this deck concept wants or needs.)

There could be a graveyard commander, or a damage over time commander. Maybe I'm just being demanding, but I feel like outside of the two Atraxas and 's wealth of options (so two color sets out of five), there's just not any worthwhile choices for brewing four-color decks with cards that work well together but happen to not overlap in color identity.

FormOverFunction Please build a Chandler and Joven partner deck! That would be awesome! In my head-canon those two cards now have Friends Forever with Chandler/Joven.

On the original topic, I'll say that I really don't want a lot of goodstuff or niche commanders anymore. I personally prefer to need to find more unique ways to make niche strategies such as Shrines work rather than just having Wizards print Go-Shintai of Life's Origin. What I personally like to see is commanders with interesting abilities that aren't pigeonholed into a single deck. The backgrounds and background commanders from Battler for Baldur's Gate are things I love because there are so many open-ended and interesting combinations from them.

Sicii on Curses with Lynde

Hey folks!

I've created a Lynde deck because I really like the curse theme. Somehow the deck isn't working that good and I really can't figure out why. Is there too less card draw, too less ramp or were I just unlucky while drawing?

What would you change?

I'm thinking to change the commander to Go-Shintai of Life's Origin.

Thanks for your help!

Hi soul_knightmare, Thanks for your comment :) While looking through my deck, i saw, i already added Yavimaya Coast^^

Bred for the Hunt and Guardian Project are already on my wants-list, Mystic Remora is a nice tipp, i'm still not sure, i like the card that much. But i will give it a try. Same for Fact or Fiction.

Psychic Possession seems very expensive with cmc 4. On my list is Cold-Eyed Selkie, which i want to try out soon.

Lands are a generell problem, cause i also have a Miirym, Sentinel Wyrm and a Go-Shintai of Life's Origin deck, which also need green-blue-Lands. But i put your suggestions into my list, it's always work in progress.
