Lord Xander, the Collector

Legendary Creature — Vampire Demon Noble

When CARDNAME enters the battlefield, target opponent discards half the cards in their hand, rounded down.

When CARDNAME attacks, defending player mills half their library, rounded down. (They put those cards from the top of their library into their graveyard.)

When CARDNAME dies, target opponent sacrifices half the nonland permanents they control, rounded down. (Dying is put into the graveyard from the battlefield.)

Lord Xander, the Collector sounds like a great match.

For cheap ramp try Dark Ritual, Cabal Ritual, Pyretic Ritual, Desperate Ritual, etc.. getting Lord Xander, the Collector into play turns early to maximize opponents discard seems good.

Lol added Lord Xander, the Collector. Possible mill victory? With Marchesa, the Black Rose, he'll just keep coming back to life.

Sideboarded Echo Mage since my total sorceries and instants is only 12 anyway.

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.

Hello, do you think you could help me out with a fun themed deck I am making? After Lord Xander, the Collector came out I really wanted to make a deck around him just because while he is not the best he perfectly symbolizes my kind of creature, the only way it could be better is if he had infect too... But I need some help making sure the deck will be able to protect itself while I build up to going off with Xander.

Here is the deck list thank you for any feedback you may have and happy building

wideline1414 yea I'm still working on the deck. Usually I'll add a bunch of cards to my decks then subtract as I build the deck. I haven't even started buying the cards for the deck except I pulled a gilded foil Lord Xander, the Collector.
