Sultai_Sir on How's Kaldheim Looking to You? …

3 days ago

In my humble opinion, Kaldheim is looking like an amazing set. We haven't gotten any broken things, but they all look fun. Let's go over some of the future commanders of our hearts! I'm skipping over commanders that use fortell, as we don't have many cards for them. Oh, and the cards that don't interest me. My post, my rules!

  • Halvar, God of Battle  Flip: While pretty good in Voltron decks, he makes for the first artifact commander we've ever had, and I know my Inner Johnny is tickled at that fact. The Equipment side is also super cool, with being able to pay 4 mana to resuscitate one of your creatures. With some Phyrexian Altar + Ashnod's Altar janks, we can make a fun mono-white combo deck! Oh, and Batterskull says hi.
  • Lathril, Blade of the Elves: I'm really psyched for this general. She looks like a way to make Golgari Elfball more viable, has a crazy, but not broken, activated ability, and is one of the only generals to make a usually too-competitive strategy fit for more casual tables. She has synergy up the wazoo with cards like Immaculate Magistrate and Timberwatch Elf. Oh, and one card that should be in every one of her decks, but is in zero so far, is Elder of Laurels. This card = broken in this deck, often turning your Lathril, Blade of the Elves into a four-digit power commander. Run it!
  • Sarulf, Realm Eater: Golgari Control is a thing, I guess? Stack your deck like card:Skullbrair, the Walking Grave does, but instead of going for the voltron combos, instead, you wipe your opponent's board every turn. Evolutionary Escalation is a must. Who cares about an 8/8 on your opponent's side when it's dead?
  • Vega, the Watcher: I'll say it: This is probably the most powerful uncommon commander ever printed. This triggers off of so many things: Elsha of the Infinite, Flahsback, Cascade, Retrace, Future Sight, Suspend, Adventure, Foretell, Impulse Draw, etc. Need I say more?
  • Jorn, God of Winter  Flip: ... Sigh. I know this is a fun card, but why is it sultai? Oh wait, it's generic value. EVen from a sultai-loving man as myself, this seems like overkill. Oh, you want me to talk about the commander? Stuff your deck full of snow lands. Attack. Repeat. Etc. So uninspiring.

Chandra, Awakened Inferno is super fun. Even if you only get one activation off of her, that damage adds up over time very nicely and it's unstoppable.

Descent of the Dragons is a wonderful upgrade if you have too many small creatures and want to wrath yourself.

Hellkite Tyrant is really fun. It's an underrated card. Not only does it have evasion, but it has trample also. Don't worry about that wincon, you'll seldom if ever land it. What's fun is the stealing ability because it's permanent. Consider that EDH relies heavily on mana rocks. You can disable an entire mana base while boosting yours. It's honestly a super great card that I never see played.

Rage Reflection is really good if you go wide. Works better in 2+ colors such as Gruul but it is a fun card, nevertheless.

Whims of the Fates is great if you love chaos decks.

sub780lime, Blightsteel Colossus would certainly be a good card to run for the commander, but I don't think it's right for this deck. And even if it did make the deck better, it wouldn't fit the theme, and that's important to me. Maybe I'll change my mind at some point. But yeah, I think that artifact-heavy is a good way to build Magda. Especially if you include Hellkite Tyrant.

wereotter Awesome suggestions! I already have Kyren Negotiations on the maybe board. And Obelisk of Urd looks damn amazing in here! I'm going to try to figure out what to cut for it. Any suggestions?

Depending on how aggressively your meta plays board wipes, you might just take out the token dragon generators which will make it less killy on turn but allow you to play out more game with the cards you like. For example you could play with the Hellkite Charger + Savage Ventmaw which will give you tons of combat steps to use The Ur-Dragon's effect, and will still kill players ded. I used to have the Hellkite Tyrant in the deck because I don't have any way in the deck to destroy trouble artifacts and enchantments. Same with the Dragon Mage except I was using it to get dragons out of my hand and fill it back up with cards when I wasn't hitting a BIGWIN card. Wishclaw Talisman seems really cool I like it as a card and it makes for a good 2 mana tutor when you have the other support cards down.

Thanks kaigen! You're very kind but this is still an experimental build, with many pet cards of my collection like The Ur-Dragon and Hellkite Tyrant. Probably, replacing them with some talisman would be better, but I like them too much. So far I've been impressed with the little artifact synergy in Wishclaw Talisman and the discard/draw utility of Dragon Mage.

Hey maxmcnugget,

Yes, I can recommend building this deck if you do not plan to go infinite :). The value you are going to get through treasure with this deck is going to be a lot of fun also without combo. Not sure I would lean to that Thermo-Alchemist-spellslinger path though. Focussing on Mechanized Production/Hellkite Tyrant and Voltron might just be all you need, maybe adding some more counterspells to protect those wincons. But adding some more pirates sounds good too!

If I had to alter my list, I would likely remove Havoc Jester, Reckless Fireweaver, Arcane Adaptation, Coercive Recruiter, Curiosity and Sigil of Sleep. That gives you quite some spots to round up the deck in another way. Glint-Horn Buccaneer you can keep in the deck if you can agree with your playgroup you won’t use it to go infinite. If you only use it once a turn for example, it’s still a very good card in the deck I think.
