Lurrus of the Dream-Den

Legendary Creature — Cat Nightmare

Companion — Each permanent card in your starting deck must have a converted mana cost of 2 or less. (You may reveal this card from outside the game before you start and declare it as your companion. If you do, your deck must follow the companion's restrictions. You may pay to put this companion from your sideboard to your hand at any time you could cast a sorcery. This action can't be interacted with or countered. You may only choose one companion for your deck before the start of each round.)


During each of your turns, you may cast one permanent spell with converted mana cost 2 or less from your graveyard.

Yeah. I like the un part of this set but the eternal legal cards make me physically ill. Space Beleren is already giving me headaches, Clown Car is as already said just plain obscene, and stickers are possibly the worst idea for eternal ever besides maybe (maybe!) Lurrus of the Dream-Den.

I wish I could enjoy this spoiler season. I really do. It's such a fun and goofy design. But I've spent most of it anxiously looking at the eternal legal cards and worrying.

Balaam__ just realized.. I think you could feature Lurrus of the Dream-Den as a companion for this build.

Maybe not a priority since I realize you don't favor the new cards, but an interesting enough advantage for you that I thought to mention it.

It might mess up your current rendition a bit but I think it could be interesting to add a layer of "I'm gonna do this from grave anyways".

I personally have a soft spot for Haakon, but I think he's the only thing really bothered by Lurrus.

Hope this post fines everyone doing well. So I havea Lurrus of the Dream-Den deck and its been doin okay. Lately I've been thinking about changing commanders to Athreos, God of Passage. I have 50-50 on the switch over and now I'm reaching out to others to help. Thanks in advance!

Jenson Carthalion, Druid Exile is the only way yet to play WUBRG Lurrus of the Dream-Den. This should definitely be noted.

There are propably like 10 deserts that work with Hazezon. This isn't great, but it can be done. Shefet Monitor, Crop Rotation and Tempt with Discovery really need to be in there, as well as multiple ways to recover those deserts.

Words of Whatever is definitely fun with Shanna. I have no current ideas here.

If you’re trying to keep to format-legality, it’s worth noting that Lurrus of the Dream-Den isn’t modern legal.

If you’re looking to improve the deck the obvious 3 things to aim for are:

  • don’t play more than 60 cards. Any number over this weakens your deck consistency and power.

  • aim for the deck to be mostly playsets. Having loads of 2-ofs will lead to consistency issues, you should be running playsets of all the cards that matter, and ditching those that don’t.

  • aim to lower the curve. As an example, most modern decks can’t justify running more than 4 cards (1 playset) costing 4 mana, and run nothing above this. You currently have 12 cards costing 4-or-more, which is going to make your deck quite slow/clumsy.

Drahydra on Lurrus requirements vs MDFCs

Can I have Lurrus of the Dream-Den be my companion if I'm building a Shaile, Dean of Radiance  Flip commander deck? Does Lurrus's requirement care about the total value of the card, or only the "front" value of the card? Related to that, could I cast the back side of Shaile from my graveyard using Lurrus's ability?

TypicalTimmy Of course, I enjoy the creation forum, and I know that new legendary creatures are popular there. I've happily put together a good few myself. But there's a difference between a fan site and official company policy, and right now the official company policy seems to be to create a potential commander for every niche and specific ability, and a few broad ones to cover all the bases. This makes a lot of the official ones, the ones most likely to be seen in the wild, either hyper-specific (Jorn, God of Winter  Flip, Satsuki, the Living Lore) or generically useful (Kenrith, the Returned King, Volo, Guide to Monsters). And that's not touching the non-Commander-focused legendary creatures (Lurrus of the Dream-Den).

I'll poke at the numbers with your outlier suggestions, but I don't think it will change the trend of legendary creatures per set jumping. First, though, I need to correct for the Thalia, Guardian of Thraben reprint in Crimson Vow.
