Najeela, the Blade-Blossom Discussion

RambIe: No matter what format it is though, the average player is going to try and optimise their deck (to varying levels).
Functional reprints of cards exist, you can't hold it against someone for running both Nature's Lore and Three Visits in their deck. And these reprints have existed for a long time, so this isn't some sort of new argument.
And on top of that, while these cards provide value in their non-creature form, there is a very limited number of these effects that poeple are able to pick from. This isn't the same as just gluing a Demonic Tutor to the back of your favourite commander. We as players don't get to choose these effects, unlike formats like Oathbreaker where your choice is two separate cards.
If they start printing MDFC cards which are a broken creature on one side and a mana efficient tutor on the other, then by all means I could understand your concern. But that's not what we've seen thus far.
The whole point of Commander is that it's a social format. Unlike basically any other format, there exists the social contract which should be the number one thing used to regulate a play group's experience.
At the end of the day, cEDH doesn't give a crap about how you feel about a card. If it's legal, the cEDH community will use it to win, as that's the primary driver for cEDH. But everybody is on a common understanding there.
In casual, if you have a deck which is causing problems for the rest of the group because it's too consistent or it's making commander unenjoyable fo the rest of the group, then the social contract exists to help deal with that situation. You may not like having to have hard conversations but that's part of life.
I'm just failing to see the issue here. You talk consistency, but we had that via functional reprints already. Since day dot we have had this. And on top of that, we have seen slews of commanders who, without employing mechanics like companion, partner, etc, have still had stigmas associated with them because of their consistency. Take Najeela, the Blade-Blossom . Or Prossh, Skyraider of Kher . These card both hold reputations, yet still fit within the mold of "traditional commander". And as far as your concerns with companion goes, we just aren't seeing it. For all the hype that was made, peopel aren't just jamming companion cards in their decks left, right and centre. Maybe we see a few Kenrith, the Returned King decks with Zirda, the Dawnwaker but that's it. And they're not exactly at the forefront of cEDH.

Echoing Equation: Brudiclad is very sad that this card has a simic color identity (cough Thousand-Faced Heroics cough). Anyway, point this at Najeela, the Blade-Blossom or Ezuri, Claw of Progress and you'll likely threaten to kill someone. Xyris, the Writhing Storm can produce an absurd amount of sneks for similar results on the turn after, while Edric, Spymaster of Trest can probably make you deck yourself with a source of evasion

My play group has been moving to higher powered decks lately, but even faced with combos as early as turn 3 or turn 1 Najeela, the Blade-Blossom I despise playing against Edgar the most. Eminence is largely unfun for those you’re playing against because you get free value for just playing commander. In a format built around your commander getting value that isn’t interacted with for free by just playing the game in not fun. If they were to fix eminence where you had to meet some additional condition first, say cast your commander and activate some ability you get an emblem it would make things feel more fair and interactive

This is the second deck I've seen like this hit the front page recently, although it seems yours is older and uses a better commander ability! (they used Ur-Dragon to reduce cost of all changelings)
Some things I saw different with their deck that I think would be absolute bombs in this deck are:
- Ayula, Queen Among Bears since she would turn every single creature drop into two +1/+1 counter generators on ETB or a fight/removal trigger. Plus she only costs .
- A very similar albeit not as powerful inclusion would be one of my favorite cards, Bramblewood Paragon for as well that gives them counters on ETB like Ayula but also gives all of those with counters Trample as well!
- Najeela, the Blade-Blossom for gives you hasted token generation with every changeling attack and extra combat steps with her second ability.

RobertoSjaa: Group Hug is bad in competitive. It's pretty bad in casual too. But Yukriko isn't a group hug commander. And while she's good, she doesn't live in the same space as commanders like Thrasios, Triton Hero or Najeela, the Blade-Blossom . I get that you have a Yuriko deck listed on your account and I have see na lot of comments on lists like these that effectively boil down to "I run commander XYZ and they're really good so they should be in the top bracket" but unfortuately that's not a good argument since its pretty subjective (and generally introduces a bunch of bias).
casual_competitive: That's a pretty white noise comment you got there, care to expand?

Да, колёса лучше играть под вором, но я у себя убрал Notion Thief ещё до появления Hullbreacher (и Narset, Parter of Veils у меня в мэйне нет) так что у меня даже меньше воров чем в твоём листе... а колёс - больше))
И какими бы умными не были оппоненты - мало у кого есть возможность рекастить заклинания из кладбища, поэтому как правило, чужое (неожиданное) колесо для большинства оппонентов это очень нежелательная карта.
я убрал именно потому что пронаблюдав за его "полезностью" во всех партиях (в т.ч. когда оппоненты ставили) - я ни разу не видел чтоб с него приходило больше двух карт, а подровать 2 карты за 4 маны - это как-то слишком не выгодно. Так же и держать 4 маны отрытой для его флеша - в 99% случаев не оправданно т.к. его почти наверняка захотят отменить или убить на входе (и не факт что у кого-нибудь будут доп.дровы), а закладывать ещё ману на прикрышку - это дичайшая просадка по темпу (на мой взгляд).
Да, Notion Thief и Narset, Parter of Veils стопят многие дэки, но я всё же предпочитаю иметь что-нибудь более универсальное, что так же поломает (хотя бы временно) овердроу оппонента за меньшую ману.
Да, Воры и Нарсет хороши под колёсами, но тут та же ситуация - нужно иметь минимум 7 маны и бесплатную контру, либо 8-9 маны - слишком поздний тех ящитаю... Да и приходит такое сочетание крайне редко (мне раза три за полгода приходило Вор+Колесо).
Но, если честно - я даже начал собирать вариант дэки со всеми Ворами и Нарсеткой, и всеми возможными колёсами (включая "малые" красные колёса которые лутят по 2-3 карты). Но мотом решил что это будет слишком жестоко по отношению к оппонентам и отказался от этой затеи.
После того как я собрал свою Кесс и месяца два почти не проигрывал, несколько игроков тоже собрали свои вариации Кесс, но эта "мода" быстро прошла т.к. новые командиры крутятся быстрее без заморочек с тошнилкой и лутингом. Да, тошнилка безусловно хороша и сильна, но какая-нибудь Наджила или Юрико быстрее и опаснее.

plakjekaas,Sol Ring has to be one of the best examples
yes paying 1 for 2 is great value, and it seems like one of the best turn 1 plays, so everyone with out second though just auto includes it in there deck
however, its not the best fit for all decks,
infact most cedh decks run around 30 1 drops with 30 lands. that's 60 cards Sol Ring can not interact with
out of the remaining 40 cards being as efficient as possible, 30 or more only have in there mana costs
so in these decks that only have 5-10 cards that have in there casting costs how effective is Sol Ring really ?
isn't their possibly another card that would preform better in the deck?
Feather, the Redeemed as an example, personally i would take Jeweled Amulet over Sol Ring
Kenrith, the Returned King, i would take Mana Vault over Sol Ring
Najeela, the Blade-Blossom i would take Mana Crypt over Sol Ring
Urza, Lord High Artificer i would take Sol Ring over any other option
now i know with staples the status quo is just add them all so i can hope to just get any one of them
but as i already explained over 60 cards in my deck do not require any colorless mana to be cast
so what use is having access to 2-10 colorless mana on turn 2 ?
couldn't those card slots be used instead to fill a more important mechanic in my deck ?
the answer to all the questions depends on the deck
the claim that a select list of cards are so good that only they can be used and should be used in every deck is a lie
the truth is in commader no matter it being casual, cedh or anything in between we have access to 28 years worth of card printing
there is such a verity of combo and mechanics that no matter how powerful one may be it has a sever weakness to another
its not like other formats were its 1v1 and a few select blocks to pick from, in those formats yes you can create a list
this is a 1v3 format with a massive card list
even the almighty fishhulk (considered to be the best deck in the cedh listing pre flash ban) lost to a budget kess deck in its world debut
