Jorn, God of Winter Discussion
1 day ago
I am trying to make a list of Commander's who have a color identity that extends beyond their casting cost. These are the ones I know of, and I would like to know if there are any others out there.
This list EXCLUDES MDFCs from Kaldheim and Strixhaven, such as Esika, God of the Tree Flip, Jorn, God of Winter Flip, Blex, Vexing Pest Flip and Plargg, Dean of Chaos Flip. The reason I am asking to not include these types of Commanders is because their color identity and casting costs match.
I am specifically seeking Commander's who have a casting cost that lacks their full color identity - that is to say, they have colored mana symbols in activated or triggered ability costs that are not part of their cost to cast the spell.

zapyourtumor, thank you for your comment.
Expedite felt needed (from FNM experience with an older Snow pile) to make Abominable Treefolk and Marit Lage token attack asap, since they're the win conditions. After KHM it's also nice to hit Jorn, God of Winter Flip with it.
Growth Spiral is just a bit of draw and ramp here (dropping snow basics is the safest way to stack snow permanents), it also feels nice coupled with Ice-Fang Coatl for feints, keeping things flexible. And yeah, I would have boarded 4 if the list needed more Lands.
As for Wall of Shards, yeah it looks janky, I just wanted to give it a try, with Glacial Revelation and stuff like that, any cheap snow permanent with out-of-the ordinary kit feels worth trying. In Modern and its short matches the upkeep effect might not be relevant, since we're trying to hit face with big creatures.
I was actually giving some thought to Lightning Bolt as a Modern staple too good not to use, it's just that the list is so cramped already, and I want to keep it flavorful.

I would recommend adding some clones into this deck and some powerful legendary creatures. One of the awesome things about mutate is that you can mutate a creature above a Legendary creature and then clone it without bumping into the Legendary rule.

You probably don’t need 25 lands, especially considering how much card draw you have. Personally i’d lower the land count down to 23 and ditch Into the North .
As far as good snow cards to consider adding, consider the following:

Surprised not to see Murderous Rider in the list, that card is a pretty decent utility zombie! If you're leaning into the self mill thing, I've been on the painful receiving end of an early game Egon, God of Death Flip. Also the flip side of Jorn, God of Winter Flip is really useful with snow permeants.
For recursion, Corpse Churn and Call of the Death-Dweller are both really good ways to get back your zombies. Lurrus of the Dream-Den is another often overlooked source of recursion, though not a zombie. It does give you a more consistent grindy end game though when paired with Priest of the Haunted Edge and an early Liliana's Steward .

thank you. To answer your question: I might honestly just put Fynn in the 99 of some deck that runs deathtouch creatures instead, I'm thinking Jorn, God of Winter Flip. I actually forgot to make the fynn deck hidden. If you are looking for infect, I suggest going Simic, Golgari or even Sultai. if you go Sultai and Don't want to go Voltron, you could go for Damia, Sage of Stone . just know, if you play infect, they will try to kill you first, which is why I personally don't have one myself. Seton druid tribal is one of my favorite decks along with my The Locust God deck and Edgar Markov . Winota, Joiner of Forces can also be really busted. I love that one too. the next deck I plan to do is Lathril, Blade of the Elves , I've already bought the precon and I am gonna test it out to see what works and what doesn't and upgrade accordingly. oh and in case you were wondering, other good infect commanders are the following: Ezuri, Claw of Progress and Volrath, the Shapestealer . Ezuri can make your Blighted Agent huge and kill someone with 1 or 2 hits by putting counters on it. in that deck you run all the blue and green infect creatures, scryfall is your friend. with Volrath, you want to be playing Evasive infect creatures that you then put a counter on a turn Volrath into, so again Blighted Agent is a very good card there. same with Phyrexian Crusader and Plague Stinger . The reason I broght up Damia, Sage of Stone is that she's just a really good value commander in sultai colors, she draws you cards, the other 2 kill faster.
