Lagrella, the Magpie

Legendary Creature — Human Soldier

When CARDNAME enters the battlefield, for each player, exile up to one target creature they control other than this creature until CARDNAME leaves the battlefield. When an exiled card enters the battlefield under your control this way, put two +1/+1 counters on it.

Lhunthane on Does Temur Sabertooth still bounce?

10 months ago

If Temur Sabertooth is removed in response to the activation of its own ability, does the ability still allows a player to return a creature they control to its owner's hand upon resolution? Even if Temur Sabertooth is no longer on the battlefield, there is no reason this becomes an illegal action if I'm correct.


1) Activate Temur Sabertooth while controlling Lagrella, the Magpie.

2) Enemy destroys Temur Sabertooth with Hero's Downfall while ability is on the stack.

3) Hero's Downfall resolves sending Temur Sabertooth to graveyard.

4) Temur Sabertooth's ability resolves, allowing the abilities controller to choose to return Lagrella, the Magpie's controller to it's owners hand.

Thanks for your time!

Well, in blue:

Lagrella, the Magpie seems abusable, Neoform gives you a nice creature tutor option in a way, Winterthorn Blessing / Hallowed Respite is nice "removal" and works with the persist. There's also Meddling Mage, Teferi, Time Raveler, and Unmoored Ego.

There's plenty of other value blue creatures as well.

Just a thought. I'm sure there's plenty of higher CMC stuff too, but I'm trying to keep it realistic. I think blue is the way to go if you wanted to add another color.

There's other obscure options like shaving black and using something like Greater Gargadon as your sacrifice outlet, you could explore that too.

Sephyrias on Best Commanders in EDH [Tier List] Part 1

Nonary27 There are a lot of competitive/fringe competitive commanders in both sets.

New Capenna

Lagrella, the Magpie serves as Fiend Hunter in the command zone, letting you do sacrifice combos with Karmic Guide. She'll probably end up somewhere close to Saffi Eriksdotter.

Cormela, Glamour Thief combos with reanimator spells like Footsteps of the Goryo as long as you have cost reduction cards like Goblin Electromancer or a sac outlet that generates mana. I think she's pretty strong. Anhelo, the Painter is a grixis version of Kalamax, the Stormsire. Probably the best of the new Grixis commanders. Evelyn, the Covetous is weaker than it looks. I don't think there is an infinite blink/flicker/cloning combo piece that's also a vampire. Probably not better than Vela the Night-Clad, even with the extra color. Lord Xander, the Collector has a big impact on casual tables, but is nowhere near as relevant in competitive play. Would put him somewhere close to Evelyn.

Falco Spara, Pactweaver is an okay value engine, but you have to jump through extra hoops to go infinite with it compared to Elsha of the Infinite, so it will be a few tiers lower than Elsha. Rigo, Streetwise Mentor has to compete with Edric, Spymaster of Trest, they want to do more or less the same thing. I'm not sure if Rigo is better or worse.

Ognis, the Dragon's Lash does the same as Grand Warlord Radha. You get an extra color, but have the restriction regarding haste in exchange. Henzie "Toolbox" Torre is just a bad Grim Haruspex that can serve as pseudo-haste-enabler. Not weak, but also not very strong. Rocco, Cabaretti Caterer is a Wargate for creatures in the command zone. Might be the strongest Naya legend to date, although Marath, Will of the Wild is no joke either. Jolene, the Plunder Queen enables untap combos with Black Market Tycoon, but it just ends up being a much worse version of the Freed from the Real combos that other commanders can do.

None of the others are worth mentioning imo.

Commander Legends 2

Abdel Adrian, Gorion's Ward is similar to Lagrella, all about Fiend Hunter-type flicker/sacrifice combos. Candlekeep Sage is probably the best background for it. Alaundo the Seer is a simic version of Jhoira of the Ghitu, except that it's slower, but also draws cards. Bhaal, Lord of Murder is more or less an Odric's Outrider in the command zone, but that it only counts for nontoken creatures means you can't combo with Scurry Oak, so it's probably not that great. I think Duke Ulder Ravengard combos with Port Razer?

Gale, Waterdeep Prodigy sort of gives all your instants & sorceries flashback, which is usually very powerful. Not sure how good it ends up being in practice however. Ganax, Astral Hunter is basically just Galazeth Prismari. Kagha, Shadow Archdruid is yet another Golgari recursion commander, which are usually at least decent. Jan Jansen, Chaos Crafter goes infinite with Clock of Omens and Liquimetal Coating.

Baba Lysaga, Night Witch, Bane, Lord of Darkness, Dynaheir, Invoker Adept, Gorion, Wise Mentor and Jaheira, Friend of the Forest have a lot of combo potential, but I'm not sure how to break them yet.

OrneryOnion on Lagrella, the Magpie and Donate?

If I donate a creature to an opponent, then cast Lagrella, the Magpie targeting that creature, when it comes back, who gets it?
