Godo, Bandit Warlord

Legendary Creature — Human Barbarian

When Godo, Bandit Warlord enters the battlefield, you may search your library for an Equipment card and put it onto the battlefield. If you do, shuffle your library.

Whenever Godo attacks for the first time each turn, untap it and all Samurai you control. After this phase, there is an additional combat phase.

I would suggest Mycosynth Lattice , for many reasons: it pumps up akiri to a ridiculous level, makes Dockside Extortionist nuts and stops combo pieces like Painter's Servant .

Another nice combo would be the inclusion of Godo, Bandit Warlord and Helm of the Host . You are not forced to combo at all, he can grab anything you could need, but it's a nice backup plan.

If you like Sunforger interactions, especially once you also get Puresteel Paladin online, you could consider some more instants for removal and/or damage mitigation like Comeuppance .

  • I wasn't aware red had a card draw dilemma.
  • The idea of the deck seems nice, and there are even some synergies with this type of strategy, so good on you for making Izzet Draw without the blue.
  • You have questionably left out Legion Warboss , Warren Instigator and Moggcatcher .
  • I'm not certain if it is really worth having Godo, Bandit Warlord in the deck.

  • You get half a cookie and a well-worn $5 bill out of a can of beans.

Looks like a solid build. I see you got a nice Sunforger package! You might like these cards: Tithe , Mistveil Plains , Godo, Bandit Warlord , Runed Stalactite , Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle , Valduk, Keeper of the Flame , Kemba, Kha Regent

CrustyCraig, I've definitely considered Godo, Bandit Warlord as tutoring your Staff or Mantle into play seems so good. I haven't had the chance to test him yet, but definitely should. If you're already testing him out, let me know how it goes.

As for Seasoned Pyromancer , I haven't been a huge fan. Card draw really isn't a necessity in this deck, and there are other more impactful creatures I'd rather play.

I think Athreos, God of Passage tribal Shadowborn Apostle is a quite competitive deck, can stomp really fast with black mana ramp and huge demons.

Other good choices for competitive decks could be:

(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:

Tier 0:

Thrasios, Triton Hero & Tymna the Weaver Partners

Tier 1:

Kess, Dissident Mage

Kraum, Ludevic's Opus

Najeela, the Blade-Blossom

The First Sliver (Not as a Sliver Tribe Leader)

The Gitrog Monster

Urza, Lord High Artificer

Vial Smasher the Fierce

Yisan, the Wanderer Bard

Zur the Enchanter

(NOTE: Unknown if Kraum, Ludevic's Opus & Vial Smasher the Fierce need to be Parters to be of this level.)

Tier 2:

Animar, Soul of Elements (Morph Decks not allowed.)

Baral, Chief of Compliance (Get your Counterspells Ready!)

Brago, King Eternal

Breya, Etherium Shaper

Circu, Dimir Lobotomist

Derevi, Empyrial Tactician

Edric, Spymaster of Trest

General Tazri (Mandatory Ally Tribe Leader)

Ghave, Guru of Spores

God-Eternal Kefnet

Godo, Bandit Warlord

Golos, Tireless Pilgrim

Grand Arbiter Augustin IV

Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip

Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge

Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain

Kykar, Wind's Fury

Meren of Clan Nel Toth

Mizzix of the Izmagnus

Momir Vig, Simic Visionary

Narset, Enlightened Master

Niv-Mizzet, Parun

Niv-Mizzet Reborn

Oona, Queen of the Fae

Prime Speaker Vannifar

Xantcha, Sleeper Agent

Yarok, the Desecrated

Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder

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:

  1. It needs to be up to date, prior to the Iona, Shield of Emeria & Paradox Engine bans & Painter's Servant unbanning/CMDR 2019's release; or just not include any of those at all.

  2. 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.

  3. 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!)

Demarge on Aurelia's Angelic crusade

2 months ago

Honestly the best way to try to up the power level of a boros commander would be to lean harder on the combo that commander is capable of and that'd be the Helm of the Host combo, Godo, Bandit Warlord could be rather good.

Settle the Wreckage is a sweeper you can add to a Sunforger package. Sigarda's Aid can help the equipment strategy, it turns your greeves into a spot removal protection spell, makes sunforger more a surprise, and lets helm of the host come in as a surprise win. Quietus Spike can very quickly chunk down an opponent's life total.

Angel of Serenity is a rather powerful angel (that gets really sweet with a helm of the host).

... Though honestly Kaalia of the Vast would greatly work better with an angel tribal theme. gameplay wise aurelia wants to be an infinite attack step deck.

I played with this deck at my local store commander tournament: everyone was watching Zndrsplt drawing 26 cards and then Oukaum kill them all!

I tried it with some modifications so far: Mox Opal instead of Chromatic Lantern and Tribute Mage instead of Snapcaster Mage

I'm also testing it with some more defensive options, like Red Elemental Blast and Pyroblast and some spicy Godo, Bandit Warlord + Helm of the Host . To make room for them I removed some flash cards..

also I saw someone using Venser's Journal and it could be an option...I does fits well with Zndrsplt
