Nadier, Agent of the Duskenel

Legendary Creature — Elf Warrior

Whenever a token you control leaves the battlefield, put a +1/+1 counter on this.

When Nadier leaves the battlefield, create a number of 1/1 green Elf Warrior creature tokens equal to its power.

Nadier, Agent of the Duskenel Discussion

jamochawoke on Najeela, Queen of the Blossoms

I like how the guy above this comment just casually strolls in and tells you to put in a bunch of moxen...

That said, warriors is one of my favorite tribes and I've made a ton of decks with them! Plus Najeela is such a badass commander! These are my suggestions that you haven't included and could serve as some better synergy with your deck than your non-warriors:

  • God-Eternal Oketra make huge 4/4 zombie warrior tokens on every warrior cast.

  • Oketra the True make warrior tokens and acts as a big beater itself.
  • Oketra's Monument tons and tons of warrior tokens.
  • Rush of Battle warrior themed overrun that gains you tons of life.
  • Herald of Anafenza gets bigger and makes warrior tokens at the same time.
  • Raiders' Spoils probably the best card draw you'll see for warrior tribal.
  • Gilt-Leaf Ambush elf warrior tokens with sometimes deathtouch.
  • Hunting Triad elf warrior tokens or modal +1/+1 counters.
  • Presence of Gond give a creature a tap for elf warrior token ability.
  • Lovisa Coldeyes more warrior lord buffs!
  • Obsidian Battle-Axe haste and auto-attach to warriors equipment!
  • Regna, the Redeemer and Krav, the Unredeemed act as a sac outlet and warrior token generation combo.
  • Lord Windgrace deck filtering, color fixing, and generation of a ton of cat warrior tokens
  • Great Hall of Starnheim gets you a 4/4 angel warrior token in a pinch
  • Base Camp cheap 5 color land for warriors
  • Starnheim Unleashed make a ton of 4/4 angel warrior tokens!
  • Emeria's Call  Flip make angel warrior tokens and give your non-angel warriors indestructible or make it a land
  • Ascent of the Worthy pretty fun tricks on this.
  • Firja's Retribution make a 4/4 angel warrior token and give angels destroy and double strike.
  • Battle for Bretagard make warrior tokens, then make copies.
  • Housegheist on Lathril Blade of the Elves

    I like your list, i'm builing a Lathril deck too. Here are some of my suggestions:

    A mana-cheap protection option could be delivered by Heroic Intervention . Malakir Rebirth  Flip and Bala Ged Recovery  Flip could be helpful too as they are pretty versatile cards.

    If you want some recursion Phyrexian Reclamation could help you to rebuild booardstate after a boardwipe or t-removal.

    What about Skemfar Avenger ? He's pretty cheap (in both ways) and would grant you pretty good card-advantage. An absolutely "must have" with that many 1/1's should be Skullclamp which could draw like your entire library. Realmwalker could grant you the top card of your library as a hand card as you can cast elf-spells from top of it.

    Maybe you should think about Skyshroud Poacher too, which can tutor all of your elves repeatably for just 3 mana. Only Elvish Piper would be a mana-cheper option.

    Gnarlroot Trapper is a perfect Manadork which can grant a creature deathtouch for protection as well. If your gameplan is winning by combat-dmg Beastmaster Ascension would be an absolutely blast.

    I personally am not a bit fan of Nadier, Agent of the Duskenel and Eyeblight Cullers as their cmc is too high for what they cosst. Belbe, Corrupted Observer and especcialy Glissa, the Traitor don't push your gameplan any further, too.

    Hope you don't mind my wall of text :D

    Polaris on Nadier, Agent of the Duskenel …

    All creatures will be destroyed simultaneously. All of Nadier, Agent of the Duskenel 's abilities will trigger at the same time when this happens (its own leaves the battlefield trigger and 10 token leaving triggers), so you can put them on the stack in whatever order you like (triggers put on last will resolve first). However, the triggers to put counters on Nadier won't find Nadier because it's already in the graveyard, so it won't get any counters. When its own death trigger resolves, it will create three tokens.

    For this reason, decks running these kinds of cards want free instant speed sac outlets (like Viscera Seer or Altar of Dementia ) so when a board wipe comes to town you can make sure the tokens are dead and Nadier gets its counters before the board wipe resolves.

    Mystic Reflection

    This card seems pretty wild, being kind of a preemptive (and non-Disenchantable) Metamorphic Alteration. If you foretell it on one turn, it only takes one measly mana to use it in response to something on another turn. What kind of tricks can you think of using it for?

    • Grave Peril-esque pseudo-removal, turning an incoming commander (including Lord Windgrace) into a random 1/1 token. (Like being elk'd, you could cure this with flickering.)

    • Force someone to copy an unpleasant creature, like Steel Golem. Sadly, no Phage the Untouchables tho

    • Most obviously, use spells/abilities that bring in a lot of creatures in one go so that they all enter as a copy of something strong. One awkward thing here though is that an opponent could ursurp the reflection by getting in something of their own at instant speed. -inclusive commanders I can think of that qualify are Oona, Queen of the Fae and Nevinyrral, Urborg Tyrant, plus Tana, the Bloodsower & Nadier, Agent of the Duskenel with an appropriate partner. (Note that e.g. The Locust God is AFAIK underwhelming here since its triggers are separate; you'll only get a copy out of the first token.)

    • Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer could use it as an inexpensive (if somewhat risky) way of getting a token copy of something that his other tokens can then copy in turn.

    • Kind of narrow, but you could get extra value by having creatures with on-cast triggers like Mockery of Nature come in as a copy of something with an ETB trigger, getting you both triggers at the end of the day. (You could also do something like having a creature cast from your hand come into as a copy of a Dread Cacodemon to qualify for its ETB, but you could do the same with any creature card Clone variant.)

    I just want general suggestions, but I cracked a Sakashima of a Thousand Faces, Livio, Oathsworn Sentinel, Kodama of the East Tree, and most of the uncommon partners except for Malcolm, Keen-Eyed Navigator and Nadier, Agent of the Duskenel. I am also looking for just fun partners that you people want to build, the partners that I cracked aren't a restriction for your responses. Thanks for your time!

    A food chain deck featuring Thrasios and Nadier, Agent of the Duskenel might be good.

    Tropical_December on My Opinion on New Partners

    I've already taken a shot at a Dargo-Ikra deck, where Ikra is more for colors however I don't think its very great. I think that one of the most intriguing generals though is Jeska, Thrice Reborn a Dargo-Jeska deck could be interesting with jeska being a win condition in the command zone; however, it may just be a worse Godo though.

    On the more casual side I think your Toggo-Kodama of the East has some wheels, with wheels. Making a more controlling deck with Field of the Dead and Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle as win conditions and winning with wheel after wheel where either creating a token or putting a land into play will put 3-4 lands into play triggering the Field or Valakut.

    Since Nadier, Agent of the Duskenel goes infinite with Food Chain I am thinking of a Tana-Nadier food chain deck because I'm not a fan of Korvold, but Korvold is probably just better.
