Lutri, the Spellchaser

Legendary Creature — Elemental Otter

Companion — Each nonland card in your starting deck must have a different name. (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.)


When Lutri, the Spellchaser enters the battlefield, if you cast it, copy target instant or sorcery spell you control. You may choose new targets for the copy.

DrukenReaps on Alternate Ban List

I've never really been a fan of the ban list used for commander. I don't think it addresses potential problem cards the right way. There's always going to be a new problem card printed. I also think there's cards stuck on there that use to be scary and just aren't now. Like when Worldfire came off and no one really cared lol. So I wanted to just go through the mental exercise of designing a new ban list. First thing is I wanted to bring back the old "banned as commander" and therefore have 2 ban lists. The argument I heard most against this is that it's complicated but we play the most complex deck design game in MTG. I think people can handle 2 ban lists. For the banned from the 99 part of the list I was thinking I'd focus on fast tutors and fast mana. Like I said there will always be more problem cards. Many that aren't banned are arguably stronger than banned ones currently. For example Godo, Bandit Warlord + Helm of the Host is arguably easier and more consistent than Cromat + Coalition Victory.

So here are the 2 lists, they do not contain everything. Just wanted to start the idea and see people's thoughts.

Banned as Commander- Braids, Cabal Minion Emrakul, the Aeons Torn Griselbrand Iona, Shield of Emeria Leovold, Emissary of Trest

Banned from the 99- Mox Emerald Mox Jet Mox Pearl Mox Ruby Mox Sapphire Black Lotus Channel Sol Ring Mana Crypt Mana Vault Worldly Tutor Enlightened Tutor Personal Tutor Vampiric Tutor Demonic Tutor Mystical Tutor

I would also simply declare that Companion doesn't work in Commander. So you can play your Lutri, the Spellchaser if you so desire. I think this mechanic as a whole was poorly thought out and poorly tested, hence the changes and bans across multiple formats.

I remember when companion was first introduced Lutri, the Spellchaser was the topic of conversation - not companion itself which is a shame. I find the mechanic fairly "meh" as you can only place the companion into your hand once, and most of if not all of the companions aren't necessarily going to turn the tide of a game - if I recall correctly. I'd suggest you reconsider Kaheera, the Orphanguard and companion altogether as it's just a "win more" card/mechanic, also your commander already has Vigilance.

I too am enamored with Tyrranax Rex, it's essentially Phyrexia's answer to Questing Beast that happens to be a badass Dinosaur as well. I intend on getting a copy and putting in one of my own decks as well, but it's very much dedicated to Poison counters and proliferation. I suggest you try and include Poison as a subtheme - Triumph of the Hordes is a start, but also include the recently spoiled/leaked? Tyrranax Alpha: a Phyrexian Dinosaur with haste and Toxic 3 for printed at common. Also there's Grafted Exoskeleton and the recently spoiled Prosthetic Injector as well. Will your Dinos be covering their victims in Glistening Oil, or will it simply be some more of that strange oil?

Is there a reason you are not playing Lutri, the Spellchaser in your mainboard as a 1 of? i imagine if it was good enough that you wanted to make it your companion it should make the cut for the 60 as well.

For Determined Iteration, I feel Helm of the Host has this base covered pretty well although Determined Iteration does combo really easily with Combat Celebrant so perhaps. I'll also have to check out more cards with Populate, I almost forgot about them so thank you for reminding me!

And you should definitely build a deck with Brudiclad hes kinda wild!


Awww man you're right, I just new the Companion conditions were too easy. I was so looking forward to Lutri, the Spellchaser + Snap hijinx though.

Splinter Twin lost its spot to Endless Evil, for what we use it for we don't really need haste and if we do Brudiclad covers it plus now the tokens stick around.

For Desolation Twin I went with Myr Battlesphere instead because it drops more tokens. Going wide felt a little more right and we can still make Myr Battlesphere tall if we need to. Also we have Dark Depths to grab Marit Lage for a giant creature token if we need it.

Thanks for the suggestions and send more if you think of any! Also let me know what you guys think of these cards for what to potentially take out to get the deck size to 100: Reduce / Rubble, Rhystic Study, Treachery, Taigam's Scheming, Replication Technique

Lutri, the Spellchaser is banned in EDH, just a heads-up.

I am surprised to see no Desolation Twin or Splinter Twin, though.

Riveyn I think this deck is so adorable. I made something similar for a casual deck that I've had a lot of fun pumping out the big Ole bubbly bear bois.

My deck: Bear Dredge

As a fellow LGBTQ+, I love everything about this and the "Gay Influence" makes me scream with pride.

Now if only we could get an otter.. I'd feel really represented! (Lol)

oh wait.. they banned that guy. ;)

From what I understand, no.

If you're saying for example that you cast Blur targeting a Grizzly Bears originally (and I'm just using this as a placeholder), then played Lutri, the stack would look like:

  1. Cast Blur.

  2. Cast Lutri, the Spellchaser.

  3. Lutri, the Spellchaser resolves, and enters the battlefield.

  4. The Lutri, the Spellchaser trigger goes on the stack and resolves, copying Blur.

  5. The new copy of Blur targets Lutri, the Spellchaser.

  6. The new copy of Blur resolves, blinking Lutri, the Spellchaser and drawing a card.

  7. Lutri's triggered ability does not trigger upon blinking because it specifically contains the clause "if you cast it", which is tied to the specific instance of it entering the battlefield.

  8. The original Blur resolves, blinking the Grizzly Bears and drawing a card.

So in total, you will blink Lutri once, and the original creature once, and draw two cards.

Hi everyone, Is this combo working? So we have a creature in play, we play on it Blur , and we exile it. Then we cast with flash Lutri, the Spellchaser, we exile it and we draw a card, then we return Lutri, copying the spell again and drawing again, and so we go on to infinite loop and infinite drawing. Is this working ? Thanks
