Najeela, the Blade-Blossom Discussion

@ Baron_Pretzels It depends. Aesthetically Sisay, Weatherlight Captain would be a good commander, in my opinion almost comparable to Najeela, the Blade-Blossom . The commander for this deck has come a long way in years, beginning with Karona, False God .
For optimization, I still think Najeela, the Blade-Blossom would be better. The second part about having a second combat phase is just amazing. Also, this deck can and should be (at some point) be updated with more cards. The cards in the actual deck and maybeboard only scratch the surface. I would like to at some point find more "warrior" subtype cards so that this deck can be that more optimized while maintaining flavor.

Cool thematic deck, looks fun to play.
I don't know your card pool or budget, but I prefer relying on fetches and shocks than having the 3-colored slow lands. Whenever I see a mana base with this many lands that enter the battle field tapped I can't help but think of Amulet of Vigor. An Enlightened Tutor could allow to find it early and still be helpful in late game. A City of Brass or a Mirrodin's Core could come in handy.
Arguably, Song of the Dryads is a stronger removal than Kenrith's Transformation. Three Visits is faster than Spoils of Victory, you can fetch a Triome (or a shock land) and play it for free on turn 2. You can Fetch 2 Triomes with Krosan Verge.
Hope some of this helps!

I'm a fan of quirky casual decks and always wanted to form a Forced Combat themed EDH deck. Finally got down to 2 versions below with Najeela, the Blade-Blossom as the Commander:
This version is more combo centric and has the capabilities to generate infinite mana to go for the win. There's a small Blink sub-theme as enabler to achieve victory and give opponents plenty of creatures.

This version is more straightforward with over 20 cards focusing on giving opponents creatures, while I sit on the sideline (behind my pillowfort) and watch the Royal Rumble.

Would like suggestions and feedback:
1) Which version would you play?
2) Any card suggestions to improve either decks?
3) Using Najeela, I can give opponents extra combat to help finish off each other (when forced combat effects are in play), the "lifelink" that Najeela grants is a headache though so am considering Tainted Remedy type effects too.
Look forward to your inputs. Thanks in advance.

Could just pick a random theme and put najeela at the helm. Najeela birds could still have a derevi combo finish available. Najeela artifacts doesnt make much sense, but is still just jamming a powerhouse on a good strategy. Flower themed Najeela, the Blade-Blossom would even be able to take wins from her power.

DemonDragonJ - yes and no. Sure Breya, Etherium Shaper ironically won't be sped up by Lotus, but I don't think the color restriction argument is all that strong. For example, if you look at the top 3 played commanders of every 3 color wedge/shard, 19/30 are now T2 plays. That includes heavy hitters like Yarok, Kalamax, Kaalia, Windgrace, Korvold, Kykar, and Elsha. Each of these commanders are kill-on-sight value engines that require quick answers before they bury opponents in value. If you expand the restriction further you get even more strong cards like Xyris and Sen Triplets. Getting these commanders down 2-3 turns earlier, before opponents are even remotely close to being prepared, will just lead to more unbalanced games. Furthermore, most of the heavily played 5-color commanders besides Ur-Dragon and new Niv don't actually have color restrictive mana costs. T1 Najeela, the Blade-Blossom (Najeela can already do this with Mana Crypt, but this is just another way to speed her out) or T2 Golos, Tireless Pilgrim are absolutely disgusting.
I think Lotus will be at its most degenerate in cEDH, but it will likely contribute to the "Sol Ring" problem at casual tables as well. More casual decks are not as well equipped to fend of a fast start by one player. It doesn't look like the RC is planning to emergency ban it, though they are watching it at least. However, after hearing the reasoning behind the Lutri, the Spellchaser emergency banning, I don't see this situation being any different.

there way too many viable win conditions on cEDH.
Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal and in general infinite mana with commanders like Kenrith, the Returned King and Thrasios, Triton Hero.
There are like 8 different Protean Hulk piles.
There are like 2 different Razaketh, the Foulblooded piles.
Food Chain has more than 5-6 viable commanders that can consistently win turn 3-4.
Underworld Breach is the new kid on the block with 2-4 piles himself.
Worldgorger Dragon in rakdos.
and then there are really cool and weird commander specific wins.
examples: Selvala, Heart of the Wilds,Elsha of the Infinite,Najeela, the Blade-Blossom,Animar, Soul of Elements,Godo, Bandit Warlord,Niv-Mizzet, Parun and many many many more.
Sure Consultation Oracle needs 3 mana to win and currently is the fastest but there are a lot of tier 1 decks winning turn 3-4 without it.

Diplomatic Immunity for great protection at a great cmc.

Beatismcscoots This deck wins mainly through combat damage. Beastmaster Ascension can make that easier to do, however, I have won by swinging without it. There is also the Najeela, the Blade-Blossom+Sword of Feast and Famine combo, but this deck isn't tutor heavy because it isn't designed to go for a combo. It's designed to get value and swing with your party.
I plan to keep this deck around the same budget, I originally built it with three fetch lands, but decided to switch out Blighted Woodland for Bloodstained Mire (since I was able to get one for a decent price on TCG player). I don't plan on adjusting the lands anymore any time soon (I'll probably get more fetches if the reprint next year drops their prices decently though). The creatures are pretty set as is currently, I may slightly adjust a creature or two down the rode if I decide I like an effect more than one I have. So overall, I expect the budget to stay the same.
