Hazezon Tamar

Legendary Creature — Human Warrior

When Hazezon Tamar enters the battlefield, put X 1/1 Sand Warrior creature tokens that are red, green, and white onto the battlefield at the beginning of your next upkeep, where X is the number of lands you control at that time.

When Hazezon leaves the battlefield, exile all Sand Warriors.

Hazezon Tamar Discussion

Hey, since you upvoted my

Ghired Dead Redemption

Commander / EDH* TypicalTimmy


deck, I wanted to let you know that I've been making revisions.

First and foremost, I removed Hazezon Tamar because he is too much money for a single card, his ability doesn't trigger right away, you can't ramp into him appropriately (Using stones means less tokens), and the tokens leave when he does.

I also removed the "Wincons" section, because I figure I am going to be generating a ton of hate from the other three players; If my creatures are constantly dying and my board is being wiped, creature-based win conditions mean nothing. So, instead I replaced them with boardstate protection to stop my guys from being blown off the face of the mat.

Lastly, I added in four sweepers myself, in the event I just need to reset the game and rebuild. Each of the sweepers will actually generate me value, such as Hour of Reckoning as it protects my creature tokens from being blown up.

I may consider dropping a few Superfriends, perhaps down to 4. I have the following ones for the following reasons:

As you can see, there is a theme here: Mana & Life. Keeps the engines going.

If I drop any, it will be Freyalise and Huatli as they feel the weakest, being only viable for one option.

Ajani and Elspeth both generate mass amounts of life and have sweepers built in that give me advantage. They can also generate tokens, if need be.

Domri and Xenagos both offer me mana, give me tokens, and allow me to either filter the top four or merely play the top seven.

Frey and Hualti just give me a dork and some life. Frey can get me some serious draw if she sticks around, but Hualti is basically a one-trick pony.

As an aside, Haz' hasn't been a $12 card since 2011, when Commander became A Thing (source).

TypicalTimmy on Why did Hazezon Tamar spike?

MTGGoldfish shows that just a few years ago Hazezon Tamar was a small $12. Now he is around $160.

His spike seemed to occur directly after Ixalan was released and he has continued to grow. And yet, I see nobody using him?

I feel as though the Naya Dinos hype train had the majority of push behind him, and now with Ghired, Conclave Exile coming out, he may see still more increase.

But I don't see Hazezon in decklists? On EDHRec he is listed as the General in just a mere 8 decks and the decks he runs are relatively low-ball in terms of cEDH. He seeks to implement copy abilities and passive enchantments in order to steadily grow the boardstate. Then, once boardwipes happen, enchantments are more likely to stick around and begin to rebuild for you.

Regardless, if he isn't running competitive decks, and he isn't showing up in other decks, why did he see a 1354.55% increase? That number was retrieved using this free calculator

Maybe there was a subtle buyout that occurred during the release of Ixalan and it just didn't pan out for the investors the way they were hoping?

Thank you, Grixis776! I agree that they’re pretty meh. That being said, I host a group of new players and they’re pretty hype about... the two interesting ones.

The new Naya Token guy seems good (bound to be a more affordable option than Hazezon Tamar ) and I am fascinated by where we might be able to find him in the lore.

And Anje Falkenrath is a fun Madness commander- something we’ve never gotten from a commander before.

The others? ... nah man. Nah. Not interesting, not abusable.

Yeah the one thing I want to see is more creative representations of some older characters or even Characters that haven't yet been represented.

Belbe was mentioned and I think thats a great idea. Also seeing what they did with Yawgmoth and Urza I wouldn't mind seeing some other pre walkers either... Lashrac has never had a card for instance.

There were also some really well designed characters way back in legends like Sivitri Scarzam and Hazezon Tamar that would be neat to see new versions of (UB Dragons and Deserts Matter?). Even though the stories are more or less irrelevant.

Idk about the Plane itself, but I love Naya colors :-)

I'd rec' a Token theme ... some of my favorite Naya Commanders ( Rith, the Awakener and Hazezon Tamar ) worked very well with that as a theme. It's maybe like you said, that the denizens revere huge Creatures ... so a huge Creature that makes more worshipers seems quite on-flavor.

In case it might help, my favorite way to pick themes is to check the available Commanders in those colors and see what theme(s) they suggest. If nothing else, we know there's already enough support for them in those colors to make a decent EDH deck. Here are the Naya ones ...

Good luck (and good skill) with the design!

NoNeedToBragoBoutIt on Hazezon Muad'Dib: Dune-Inspired EDH

Good lord, i didn't know this decklist exists until you commented on one of mine... now i want it!

For one, i always loved Hazezon Tamar but did shy away when he was 40€... now that he's beyond 100€ i wish i had pulled the trigger on that.

On the other hand i loved Dune when i was younger and this is just the kind of theme deck i'd actually play (i'm usually a tech oriented player).

I gotta say, i'm missing Pithing Needle , though. It would fit so well and is a great card! Another - a lot more casual - card i'd love to see would be Sandwurm Convergence , duh.

Hazezon Tamar is a delayed ETB ability that triggers on your upkeep, so the game will check how many lands you have then
