Merciless Eviction Discussion
3 weeks ago
I think you should add: Moonveil Dragon, Arcane Signet, Nature's Lore, Three Visits, Path to Exile, Swords to Plowshares, Lathliss, Dragon Queen, Klauth, Unrivaled Ancient, Dragonlord Dromoka, Scion of Draco, Terror of the Peaks, Scourge of the Throne, Hellkite Overlord, and Return of the Wildspeaker.

Mirrorworks: I kind of like it but it may be too slow
Kuldotha Forgemaster You have other options, too slow
Merciless Eviction: Damn and other spot removal may better

Hope I'm not annoying anyone by indulging in thread necromancy, but a couple of points about phasing that I feel have been missed:
While flickering effectively kills tokens, phasing protects them. Compare Eerie Interlude to Teferi's Protection. More effects like that would make EDH go-wide decks more resilient, which I think they deserve considering the format commonly contains board wipes (Teferi's Protection is pretty much the only way for tokens to survive a resolved Cyclonic Rift or Merciless Eviction), and would also help mitigate the inherente disadvantage combat damage faces in the format.
Banisher Priest-style temporary removal risks giving free value when used on an opponent's ETB creature, and and opposing commander can simply "escape" to the command zone. Oubliette allows neither of those things.
The above points, plus the mentioned bonus voltron decks get by also being able to survive removal that hexproof can't protect again, would help white in EDH: Wide protection, mass tokens, temporary removal, and Equipment/Aura friendlieness are all in its primary piece of the color pie.

I honestly feel that Sythis should be higher up than she is. Merciless Eviction isn't played in cEDH, and with how she is built, stax enchantress is a very viable strategy. It just seems like the more viable strategy with decks like Urza out there that essentially do the same thing that Sythis wants to do, but with artifacts. The only thing that makes Urza great is that he taps the artifacts for blue mana and he can do the Golos trick. But Sythis seems more in line with the Stax route and you can get the value off of proper placement. I believe I'm at about an 80% W/L record in cEDH with Sythis.
Also, Jeska should be higher up as partnered with Dargo or Tymna, she is able to be in the top tier commanders.

beside tiamat in your edit page, put CMDR in asterisks, that will denote it as your commander.
As for cards, i would start with Farseek, Explosive Vegetation, Rampant Growth, Kodama's Reach, Coldsteel Heart, Mind's Eye, Rhystic Study, Mystic Remora, Fertile Ground, Dawn's Reflection, Sphere of the Suns, Mask of Memory, Swords to Plowshares, Path to Exile, Counterspell, Vanquish the Horde, Wrath of God, Semester's End, Pongify, Beast Within, Chaos Warp, Vandalblast, Merciless Eviction, you need some answers, consitent ramp, and tons of draw. These are a few of the cards/effects i would consider or search for if i were you to start with. Hopefully they give you more ideas as well. You're gonna want to run 37-39 lands in my opinion. I'd probably start with 37-38 if i were you i think. Let me know if you think of anything else you want to know about. I tried to keep these mostly budget. A few are kinda expensive, but most are $5 or less. Silence is another fun one to consider.

Normally I like to go through the changes I make as one-for-one tradeouts, providing a rationale for why I'm taking this card out and putting this other one in. In this case, however - being that I haven't updated this deck in years - I'm changing out nearly a quarter of the deck, so making those one-for-one explanations doesn't make a ton of sense. This was the first commander deck that I ever attempted to build, and looking back at the original build, I think I spread myself a little thin on the the themes I wanted to run, so this overhaul is mostly about becoming more focused in what I want to accomplish, so instead of looking at individual switches, these are more-or-less the themes I'm either trying to drop vs. the ones I'm trying to reinforce.
Counter-magic/tempo: (Counterspell, Render Silent, Jace, Unraveler of Secrets, Capsize). Targeted removal (Utter End, Vindicate, Ethersworn Adjudicator). The overall idea here is going to be that I don't want to stop you from playing your cards. I don't want to kill your nice stuff. I want you to get your cards into play. That way I can take them.
Big creatures that first-time-commander-deck-builder me wanted to include just cuz they're Esper: (Sphinx of the Steel Wind, Sphinx Sovereign). Again, not bad cards really, but they're expensive and not entirely on-theme.
Inferior lands: (Temple of Deceit, Temple of Enlightenment, Temple of Silence, Dromar's Cavern, Esper Panorama). The temples I felt were the weakest of the dual lands I'm running. Between the lands that are going in, the fact that all these changes are bring my average mana value down 0.2 points, and the amount of mana rocks I'll be running, not only am I improving some of these lands slots, but I'm also running 2 fewer lands.
Other: Diabolic Tutor to be replaced by a better tutor effect for this deck. Merciless Eviction because while I still like board wipes, I don't wanna exile everything. Leyline of Anticipation. This one pains me a little, I may try to find a spot to get this back in sometime in the future. Acquire because there's not a guarantee that there'll be a good target for this. I'd hate to spend the mana just to steal someone's Sol Ring.

You also have the option of using Athreos, God of Passage as your commander, because unfortunately Kaya is not a legal commander. The only planeswalker that are legal as commanders are the ones that specifically state they are on the card itself Commander works a little differently though, because there are traditionally more people at a table (4 people in a standard pod) lifegain doesnt mean quite the same thing as it does in brawl. Not saying it is bad, depending on the level youre playing at, doubling your starting life total can be really solid. Some options you could consider running alifegain list to win would be things like Approach of the Second Sun, Felidar Sovereign, and Aetherflux Reservoir. there are many other options as well, those are just the ones i would consider. Oloro, Ageless Ascetic is another very popular commander that deals with lifegain if that is the route you want to take. If you want to lean more heavily into the tribal side of things, especially with a focus in angels, I would consider Kaalia of the Vast. She is a really powerful commander. In the deck you tagged here, if you wanted to choose a commander from that list i would go with Firja, Judge of Valor. Selective card draw is really good in commander, and this one you should be able to trigger quite frequently. A phenomenal resource for any player new to the commander format is edhrec.com. This link should take you straight to the page for Firja, Judge of Valor as I threw it in the search bar before I tagged the link, that should give you an idea of what to expect from the site. I will be honest, Orzhov is generally outside my comfort zone, but you're welcome to tag me in anything you put together and I will happily take a look. Since you're building a 100 card singleton deck, I highly recommend having in the ballpark of:
This will set your deck up to work consistently, and there are some card that will kind of fit multiple roles for you such as Magister of Worth and the like. I like to start by choosing my commander and working from there, but many people build the deck they want and then choose the best option from every viable commander they can. It is all personal preference. Let me know if anything I said doesnt make sense, or if you want me to clarify anything. Hope you decide to join us for the best format in the game.

Thanks for taking the time to comment RazortoothMtg, I haven't had the time to look at the new sets. On to the Maybeboard they go. Will definitely have to do some testing. I'm not so sure of Glorious Protector , as he can't save my 7 angels witch is kind of a deal breaker as most swords to plowshares aim at Avacyn, Angel of Hope anyway... or Merciless Eviction . Dx
oh, I could run both. Now, just what to pull. XD it's so hard at this point.
