Noyan Dar, Roil Shaper
Legendary Creature — Merfolk Ally
Whenever you cast an instant or sorcery spell, you may put three +1/+1 counters on target land you control. If you do, that land becomes a 0/0 Elemental creature with haste that's still a land.

Noyan Dar, Roil Shaper Discussion

Glimmer would be great if she could flicker or bounce more ... maybe Derevi, Empyrial Tactician? Also found this Linessa, Zephyr Mage it would be better if she did something other than 'granduer' for the commander format
Perfuma's great on flavor but her function might be better found in Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy
Mermista might be cool as Noyan Dar, Roil Shaper or Prime Speaker Zegana something about the way she is in the show makes me think that she can get suuuuper big p/t wise. Maybe even Gravelgill Duo because of her cynicism?
anyhow, it's got me thinking ^_^ here's an alter for She-Ra Sisay, Weatherlight Captain

I think a Noyan Dar, Roil Shaper lands matters type deck could be really cool. I have a buddy who plays one that is basically a draw-go deck looking to wipe the board a bunch and take over the game as people lose resources. Cards like Tomik, Distinguished Advokist and Sacred Ground also give this type of deck redundancy. Not to mention the fact that Noyan's ability is so open, you can adjust your spells to be what you want, maybe putting in some weird jank.

Artifact - Fortification
Fortified land has infect as long as its a creature. (it creature deals damage to creatures in the form of -1/-1 counters and to players in the form of poison counters.)
I'm working on a Noyan Dar, Roil Shaper deck, and this would be a second Inkmoth Nexus.
Make a Vanguard Card.

+Land Ramp, it's a Land Creature deck after all and even if this outpaces the ability to create creature lands, extra mana good. Mitotic Manipulation Dig and Cheat a land into play Retraced Image cheat a basic Land from your hand into play Terrain Generator cheat a basic Land from your hand into play, Downside is the land needs to be reserved to tap and another 2 colourless available, it's pricey but it's land ramp outside of Green Myriad Landscape cheat a basic Land from your deck into play, the same downside to Terrain Generator
+Mana Ramp, never hurts, plus there are a few high CMC cards in here. Prismatic Lens just another insurance that Noyan Dar, Roil Shaper can come out earlier, added benefit of fixing mana High Tide Double that Island production for a turn, On the fence with this one since it's a Two coloured deck
+Vigilance, Ideally removing the hard decision of A. Attack and limiting mana. or B. Hold open Mana and limit attacks. Plus many of these have low CMC and can be played early before Noyan Dar, Roil Shaper especially in a slow game where you miss your Ramp Always Watching is another Brave the Sands Hold the Gates Serra's Blessing These do have the downsides of being removed from some of your board wipes Heliod, God of the Sun may work around that
+Untap Creatures be it fainting opponents or bursting extra mana, this shit is gangsta, you have Unity of Purpose and To Arms! can always add Call to Glory, Energy Arc, Rally of Wings and Roar of the Kha. these can boost the over speed of the deck. Thoughtweft Gambit has a high CMC but comes with Sleep attached (Didn't see them in the Maybeboard)
-Stragglers There is some fluff in here. 1. -Swiftfoot Boots add another counter or some other form of CMDR protection 2. -there are a few things with awaken where paying extra for the awaken are just silly, ie. pay extra 3 colourless for 3 +1/+1. You could save the mana a cast some extra cantrips. cast 2 for a total of 2 CMC and get 6 +1/+1 counters with Noyan Dar, Roil Shaper 3. -Sorcery speed card draw. there are some good staples but the instant speed with some vigilance of the field will be better 4.-Proliferate. hard to say really, most cards that come with proliferate have higher CMC, unless your getting 5 or more +1/+1 counters from spending 3CMC, using cantrips really do become much more Efficient.

Meren of Clan Nel Toth is a nice combo deck that fits together rather easily.
Noyan Dar, Roil Shaper lets you build a control deck that wins with creatures.
Narset, Enlightened Master would let you build a creatureless deck a number of different ways.
My best recommendation is don't focus on picking a commander. Find some theme you want to build around and go from there.
