Nice! How about Deification for Gideon and maybe Luxior, Giada's Gift?

Welcome to the club, BIAxKatana!

Obligatory caveat that I'm not a Commander expert, so I might be missing some details. My first thought on looking at this deck is that there might be too many payoffs and not enough support. While cards like Exploration and Burgeoning are generally good ramp, with only 33 lands, minimal land searching, and not much repeatable draw, I don't expect this deck to get more than a couple of extra land drops each match.

How reliable are Fist of Suns and Jodah, Archmage Eternal for you? They combo well with Morophon, the Boundless, so how quickly can you get them and a full color suite active? Is it better to play Esika, God of the Tree  Flip or The Prismatic Bridge  Flip?

There could be some bad interactions between your counterspells and Mana Maze. Mana Maze supports your colorless creatures, but unless an opponent is playing heavy , countering one of their spells basically resets Mana Maze.

What is the role of Luxior, Giada's Gift and the assorted Jin-Gitaxias  Flipes?

Mattio38 Hey, thanks for stopping by yourself haha!

I've played this a handful of times with my group, and it's always at LEAST been a major threat, with her ability to toss out huge threats at a moment's notice. Magda is genuinely an all-star lol, the ability to fetch Avacyn's Memorial out of the deck is insane. Especially considering you can swing Magda safely, since the fetched Memorial will make her indestructible lol. Allowing you to continue fetching big nasties (Bladewing, Deathless Tyrant, Drakuseth, Maw of Flames, Oros, the Avenger, and Piru, the Volatile are all excellent targets, with Gadrak, the Crown-Scourge as prooobably your last choice) turn after turn. Luxior, Giada's Gift is another great choice.

But honestly? I usually hate infinite combos, so I usually try to avoid tossing those in as wincons, so this deck usually just wins by beating face better than anyone else. There's a good amount of fliers too, which are both great at protecting Dihada, as well as getting in to damage people, and any winning boards just... facilitate keeping your board around to continue doing that haha. The boardwipe creatures are especially good at keeping everyone else's board in check, since all of them deal with most go-wide strategies pretty immediately, as well as smaller utility creatures and whatnot, paired with lifelink to boot, it gets kinda funny.

A combo I do quite like is Dihada + Myrel, Shield of Argive + Agrus Kos, Eternal Soldier.

Lets you target Agrus with Dihada's +2, then you pay the , which copies her +2 for every one of your legendary creatures, and with Myrel out, your opponents don't have too many common options to deal with your board since USUALLY your board is quite vulnerable from your upkeep to your main phase 1. But Myrel stops people from doing anything during that point, so you can basically keep your Dihada +2 going safely for your entire creaturebase, letting you swing relentlessly and gain a ton of life, all while keeping Dihada safe behind the fliers and big bodies etc. etc.

Also Primevals' Glorious Rebirth won me a game hilariously hard once. A Lazav player milled like 3/4s of my library. Got to my turn. Topdecked Primeval. Put basically every legendary card in my deck straight onto the field, lands included. Generally speaking, I prefer to let all 4 cards go to the grave with Dihada's -3, since the 4 treasures is REALLY strong, but if I ever mill Primeval, you bet I'm grabbing that lol.

As for your recommendations, yeah Blasphemous Act is kinda just never a bad idea lol. I might toss it in, but I find I've been able to get by using Piru, Oros, or Ashling in a similar way. The deck makes enough mana to make it functional haha, plus it leans more into the legendary tribal aspect, which I enjoy. Sheoldred is definitely a great include, I'm not really sure why I didn't include her other than maaaaybe being a massive hate magnet. I would argue that Rodolf is even better in the deck with a little extra legwork involved, but Rodolf, for some strange reason, doesn't attract as many bad intentions haha

Definitely not a bad idea though, fits into my theme of "keep my things on the board", if I ever find a card underperforming I might just swap it out for her.

Hey! Just swinging by because I'm a fan of Dihada, I'll drop my deck for you to check out, see if you can pull any ideas out of it. The description kinda goes into details about all of the major legendaries I've included, so maybe you'll find something you'd like in there.

The Deck

Anyways, as for some opinions on your deck as is, I'm just going to assume there's no real budget limitation here since it's already sitting pretty high up there.

I would included a LOT more legendary lands, just, generically. It's incredibly helpful to have Dihada's -3 ability consistently fetch lands if you need them. Honestly just grab as many as you can that aren't like... actively bad for the deck.

I also don't know how particularly worth it the Eldrazi titans are. Like, sure, they're always not BAD, but if you're looking for big splashy creatures, while keeping your CMC relatively low, I feel like there are better options. There's also a distinct lack of fliers, which any planeswalker-commander deck kinda caves to for obvious reasons.

You got Gisela, who CMC aside thanks to the -3, is pretty great, but may also be an absolutely enormous hate magnet from everyone at the table immediately. Skithiryx is solid thanks to his self haste-enabling and regeneration if need be. Drana seems... kiiinda low impact in my opinion? It's easy to connect with someone since she flies, but unless you have a big board set up, she doesn't really do much for you. Breena is a great include for card draw, she can get big, or buff something else, and helps the rest of the table enough to incentivize people to NOT blow her up. And lastly, Rodolf is actually pretty cool, and is probably worth keeping around for sure, his recursion is really nice and synergizes well with Dihada's lifelink shenanigans. Important to note however that lifelink will not give him indestructible when he, or anything else punches stuff, at least, not until AFTER the combat damage and everything has been dealt, in case that matters.

A couple of immediate recommendations, including stuff from your maybeboard, at your discretion then:

Zeriam, Golden Wind - Is a respectably cheap dude, is a flier to protect Dihada, makes even MORE fliers to protect Dihada, and then THOSE fliers can produce even more fliers, it's great.

Agrus Kos, Eternal Soldier - Using Dihada's +2, with an additional , means you can apply her +2 to every legendary creature you control every turn. Which is really, really, really strong lol.

Luxior, Giada's Gift - Let Dihada throw hands herself. Equip this to her, and use her +2 on herself now that she's a creature. Now you have a commander with vigilance, lifelink, and indestructible, that's slowly getting bigger and bigger, and there's very little your opponents can do to shut it down conveniently. Plus, Luxior is legendary, and can be fetched in any number of ways, including her -3.

Magda, Brazen Outlaw - This lady is NUTS. Hear me out. You have her out, and she's able to attack. Use Dihada's -3, putting all 4 treasures onto the field. Then you attack with Magda, creating a 5th treasure. Then, before damage is even dealt, you use Magda's last ability to sacrifice all 5 treasures you just made, to fetch something like Avacyn's Memorial straight out of your deck and onto the field. Yeah she's pretty good lol.

Oros, the Avenger - Flier that shooouldn't hurt your own field too much, but is extremely good at wiping out everyone else's small things, for a small cost. If you give it lifelink, you're golden lol. Is also a target for Magda, if you include her.

Drakuseth, Maw of Flames - This dude with lifelink is wonderful. You get 10 damage to throw around just for attacking, serves as decent removal, and itself hits for 7. Is also a flier, and can be fetched by Magda.

But yeah, I could probably say some more stuff but I'll leave you with this for now, is a super fun deck, I hope you get it to a place where you're happy with it!

Easy Cuts

Old-Growth Troll, Walking Skyscraper, Smoke Spirits' Aid, Vastwood Surge, Sword of Vengeance, Unquenchable Fury, One with the Kami, Elemental Mastery,

Ox of Agonas (Swap for Inspiring Call), Ulvenwald Oddity  Flip (switch for Primal Rage), Spearbreaker Behemoth (Swap for Heroic Intervention I have a copy of this card to give you.), Ascendant Acolyte - maybe cut? good card but i think you can do better.

Shifting Shadow, only keep if you have a lot of creatures with ETB effects. By a lot I mean at least 10.

Blackblade Reforged, Bonehoard, andFireshrieker can be upgraded for more synergistic equipment or auras. For example Bone Sabres, Fractal Harness, and Luxior, Giada's Gift. Search scryfall for equipment with counter keywords, then do the same for auras. You should absolutely play Sword of Truth and Justice

Search scryfall for cards with "evolve" for early game creatures that are growers, not showers. I highly recommend Experiment One and Gyre Sage! Gyre is 100% better than either spell I talk about below. vv

Most ramp spells in your deck should cost 2 or less CMC. 3 is fine. But you want to play them early game rather than late game. Cards like Tanuki Transplanter are very good ramp spells, but you only want 1 or 2 ramp spells that cost 4 or greater in your deck. I would keep this card in your deck depending on what the rest of your ramp looks like. Rampant Rejuvenator is another 4 cmc ramp. it does synergies with your counter theme, but its less dependable ramp because it has to die and your deck isn't playing sac outlets like Phyrexian Alter. on the plus side it is nice to beef it up and wait for that pending board wipe to slingshot your land base past the rest of the table. These are the tough decisions we are faced with. You should cut one of these cards. Keep Bear Umbra, it is better than both above mentioned and has the same CMC.

I would cut most lands that enter the battlefield tapped, they really f*ck up your early game. its ok to have a few, but they better be worth it.

Gleeock on Angelic Elspeth

It would be neat if somehow New Capenna was a remnant of Serra's Realm that didn't sucked into the Weatherlight powerstone. Then it would make sense if Luxior, Giada's Gift contained some remaining Serra-spark. Or Serra is somehow just Elspeth's mother with some sort of spark transference - for more lazy story-writing. New Capenna used to be a governed by angels (like Serra's Realm). A lot of that conjecture would line up with Elspeth having a Serra's Realm/Serra/Serra-spark connection.

mathemagic314 on Does Roil Elemental's ability still …

1 year ago

The situation: I controlled Will Kenrith equipped with Luxior, Giada's Gift. My opponent controlled Roil Elemental, and played a land to gain control of him. When I re-equip the equipment, does the Roil Elemental's ability cease to give him control of it, as it only applies to creatures, and like an aura's static effect, its ability would fall off? Or would he maintain control because the Roil only cares about it being a creature at the time of target?

SufferFromEDHD on Jodahs Super Friendship

1 year ago

Big fan of super gimmicky decks like this.

Oath of Gideon and Oath of Teferi legendary enchantments that Jodah can dig for and speed up your planeswalker strategy.

Luxior, Giada's Gift legendary equipment that Jodah can dig for and turns your planeswalkers into beaters.

Ward of Bones not legendary but it's static ability in this list is LEGENDARY.

Inexorable Tide again not legendary but proliferating for playing planeswalkers just speeds up your clock.

Savor the Moment I have a few Super Friends lists and I squeeze this card into all of them.
