There isn't a rhino-specific commander, but what traits do rhinos have? Bulky bodies, a lot of trample and trample-ish evasion, and some stall with cards like Stonehorn Dignitary and Rhox Meditant.

I would say look for a subtheme and choose a commander based on that. Dragonlord Dromoka and Karametra, God of Harvests are good utility options for protection and ramp, respectively. If you're pumping the Rhinos, Sovereign Okinec Ahau pushes that into overdrive.

I got a lot of these decks in need of commanders. Please send over suggestions for

Enchantments: Citadel of Pain + Manabarbs + Personal Sanctuary sort of thing. I know Go-Shintai of Life's Origin exists, but I'm not interested in adding and/or to this one.

Curses and curse themed Auras: Lynde, Cheerful Tormentor + Eriette of the Charmed Apple. Again, I'm not interested in adding .

Reanimator

"Bleeder" attrition: Value over time. Awakening Zone, Suture Priest, Kambal, Consul of Allocation, that sort of thing.

8cardalchemy on Help me Build a Basic …

Hi All,

I want to build an Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper // Tymna the Weaver life gain commander deck. It will be used for semi-casual play at a LGS, so good players with decent decks but not a lot of bonkers combos going off by turn 5.

I have never been amazing a cooking up commander decks that actually function, especially on a budget. Can anyone help me put together a basic/affordable decklist that I can expand on with more expensive cards later (let's say sub $200, preferably closer to $100, price is a little flexible)?

So far, I have the following cards that I know will work here:

Deathrite Shaman Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose Swords to Plowshares Dina, Soul Steeper Voice of the Blessed Kambal, Consul of Allocation Willowdusk, Essence Seer Vampire Nighthawk Drana and Linvala Rodolf Duskbringer Rampant Growth Farseek

I also own both commanders, so that's $30 I don't need to worry about.

Any help is appreciated.

Great Commander choice, dude, greatly underrated nowadays imho.

I'll get right to it. Considering that they also translate into card draw, I'd have to recommend an abundance of low-cost Lifegain effects. Archivist of Oghma, Serra Ascendant, Soul's Attendant, Soul Warden, Blood Artist, Zulaport Cutthroat, Elas il-Kor, Sadistic Pilgrim, Leonin Elder, Profane Memento, Spectrum Sentinel, Authority of the Consuls & Blind Obedience will trigger often. Zuran Orb allows you to just straight up turn your excess Lands into card advantage mid-late game, provided you tap them for mana before you sacrifice them. Not bad for a 0-drop.

Some higher costed stuff like Kambal, Consul of Allocation, Queza, Augur of Agonies, Sheoldred, the Apocalypse, Life Insurance, Shabraz, the Skyshark & Sunscorch Regent will all draw you a bunch of cards.

As far as winning goes, there are a few combos that work intrinsically with what the deck is already trying to do. I see you're running Sanguine Bond + Exquisite Blood as one of your WinCons, so you're off to a good start. Heliod, Sun-Crowned + Walking Ballista fits here, as does Aetherflux Reservoir + Bolas's Citadel + Sensei's Divining Top. All of these combos can be easily Tutored within Esper, with the only dead card being Walking Ballista. "Dead" meaning it's useless on it's own, not that it's hard to Tutor.

Speaking of Aetherflux Reservoir & Bolas's Citadel, using your Life as a resource is obviously a good strategy here since you'll be gaining so much of it no matter how you build this one. Greed, Unfulfilled Desires, Phyrexian Processor, Phyrexian Reclamation & Defiler of Faith are good examples. Necropotence & Ad Nauseam obviously exists as well. You could also run stuff like Razaketh, the Foulblooded & Vilis, Broker of Blood, but that would require a Reanimator strategy...

Other than that I'd probably add some more Tutors & Ramp for your combos, & more protection for Oloro, Ageless Ascetic.

Cheers!

After looking a bit deeper, there's Kambal, Consul of Allocation, Ob Nixilis, Unshackled, Fate Unraveler, and Harsh Mentor, which covers a pretty good mana value spread.

I have an Abzan life gain deck. These are some cards from it that might be worth a spot in your Esper strategy.

Essence Pulse, Kaya's Wrath, Kambal, Consul of Allocation, Divine Offering, Serene Offering, Shambling Vent, Aetherflux Reservoir, Alhammarret's Archive, Blighted Steppe

Hi,

Not bad! I would definitely include Kambal, Consul of Allocation. Not really a budget card, but he's super strong in here and worth the investment. Good luck.

Wkr,

Update: I made 4+4 Soul sisters and exchanged Indulging Patrician to Kambal, Consul of Allocation. It plays much better now.

I decided to stay with Revitalize, cause it plays well with Lone Rider  Flip and doesnt make me lose the card after playing.

I will also keep Ajani for now, cause it works good versus board swipes, creating creature tokens when I am left with no other creature options.
