This should help some folks be more inclined to help you. I for one have no idea what the name of most of the decks are, it is just the commander(s) that I care about. What I would highly recommend is if you know your general preferred play style let us know and we can start pointing you in one direction or another.

I'm officially necro'ing this deck as of today. We had a fun last run with it, culminating in me using Emrakul, the Promised End to take my friend's turn. It wasn't enough though and he won anyway. I've enjoyed the versatility, but not the variance in this deck. I could make it more consistent and probably it would be strong. However, to do that I'd have to focus almost exclusively on winning with Walking Ballista every time, and that wouldn't be a deck I enjoy as much. In the meantime I've wanted to build Kadena, Slinking Sorcerer since she was spoiled and have the unopened precon, but never built her because I already had a Sultai deck. I'll continue to use the mana base and some of the relevant tutors and such in the new deck, while selling the splashy cards that have gone up in value a ton over the years to finance new cards for her. Rest in Peace, my T-Rex armed friend, you are great.

king-saproling on Pokemon EDH - 111% altered art

8 months ago

4/22/2021 Update - finally finished the general, Kadena, Slinking Sorcerer (Mewtwo). Like Nantuko Vigilante , I tried to mimic the art of the original pokemon card as much as possible, except that I also wanted Mewtwo to extend beyond the art box a bit.

Next up is the partner, Umori, the Collector (Mew)

My favorite decks to play are Ghave, Guru of Spores , Kadena, Slinking Sorcerer , and Queen Marchesa . Yeva, Nature's Herald is a fun one, too, if you like winning at instant speed. Let me know if you want to see any decklists. Actually they all should be on my page.

  • Cyclonic Rift gets used way too much in my play group so I opt to not include it in any of my decks and I don't think its even necessary seeing as I have tools to make it unblockable.
  • The point of Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir and my other flash cards are to ensure I can get a free morph out on each of my opponents turns using Kadena, Slinking Sorcerer, so I want to ensure that the flash is recurrable. Considering that, Emergence Zone is not something I would want. I don't have any big one-turn flash plays that can win me the game so it wouldn't be good for that either
  • Ezuri, Claw of Progress is one of my infinite combo pieces so I absolutely am not getting rid of it
  • This is also a control combo deck so I'm not interested in using Forsaken Monument and Beastmaster Ascension to make my morph creatures big. Swinging with a lot of big creatures isn't my goal and I don't want it to become that
  • I don't think I need signets, I prefer mana fixing through lands rather than artifacts and I'm not in a rush to get my commander out on t2 (it's not the level the deck is intended to be playing at).
  • I intend to replace Temple of Mystery with Rejuvenating Springs at some points
  • Ancient Tomb is currently $40 and I don't want to spend that much on one single land

Thanks for the recommendations though! All the other ones you gave were pretty good, I'll consider adding them for sure

New Akiri is interesting as she is a lower cmc and less restrictive Syr Gwyn, Hero of Ashvale. To me that instantly makes her more palatable as Syr Gwyn is sooo expensive and you feel crushed if she gets removed quickly.

Forsaken Monument is immediately going into my Kadena, Slinking Sorcerer list. Beefing up all my Morphs and gaining 2 life for each one is fantastic. Plus it will help the deck finish games (one area where Kadena usually struggles).

The alternate art for Moraug is freaking sick!

Holy hell is Nahiri's Lithoforming great for lands matters decks! DemonDragonJ, being able to sac lands off this card is not a downside, it's a boon. Lord Windgrace/Korvold, Fae-Cursed King will certainly abuse the heck out of that card, and even my Mina and Denn, Wildborn list will gladly take this.

Zoli00Hun on Mono Goblin Deck for Commander

1 year ago

Yeah, so the problem with Ancient Tomb, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, and Hall of the Bandit Lord are all really expensive and I wouldn't like to spend more than approximately 5 dollars on a single card.

In my opinion, Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep can only work well with Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin so I don't think that adding this land would make a big difference.

Vance's Blasting Cannons  Flip is interesting. I think I might add it to the deck.

I really like Mikokoro, Center of the Sea. I'll definitely make some space for that card.

I see your point with Dormant Volcano, adding this one as well.

Temple of the False God is not for me. My very first deck was the pre-constructed Faceless Menace deck with Kadena, Slinking Sorcerer as my commander. However, I always ended up not being able to use Temple of the False God since I did not control enough lands. Finally, after some games I decided to never use that card ever again.

The problem with Forgotten Cave is that it enters the battlefield tapped, while Ash Barrens does not.

On the other hand, I'm sure I'll put in Hanweir Battlements  Flip.

Thanks for your help Kyle_Winter again!

Personally, I felt like he was doing the "right" thing for self-serving reasons, much like how he views the animals. I definitely can see a Boros Lukka. But, to me, he's still not a good guy. Like, he still wants to kill the cat for most of the time and is seeking both his city's protection, yes, but also personal glory. I think he's more

Lukka, Master of Men and Beasts

Legendary Planeswalker - Lukka

+1: Create a 1/1 white Human Soldier creature token with lifelink and a 1/1 red Human Warrior creature token with haste.

-1: Gain control of target non-Human creature until end of turn. Untap that creature. It gains haste until end of turn. If it dealt no combat damage to its owner, it's owner gains life equal to its power, then exile that creature, then return that card to the battlefield under your control.

-12: Each non-Human creature you don't control deals damage equal to its power to its controller. You gain life equal to damage dealt this way.


I think he should've had a threaten effect on him, but more as a recruiting idea. I designed the -1 to reflect a more recruiter effect, but also, just reflecting his view of these creatures as weapons, he can just use them and let them leave.

So, some Companions work particularly well with specific Commanders, e.g.:

In that spirit, I'd like you to make a companion with a specific commander in mind. The Companion should be non-sentient and the Commander should be sentient, because I think being like a familiar/pet is cool as the dynamic and reflects the concept of bonders I think the design is to imply.
