Phage the Untouchable Discussion
2 months ago
Not every card is meant to be for commander. There are a lot of hoops to jump through to make make his ability moderately relevant but in black there are much better options if you just care about colors. It would probably play out very similar to Haakon, Stromgald Scourge or a Phage the Untouchable deck. Command Beacon and Netherborn Altar become your bread and butter and everything else is generic black value.

voltron was the first type of decks i built and mono black is my favorite color, this deck makes my heart feel fuzzy. i always wanted to build a mono black voltron deck, Phage the Untouchable was one i always wanted to build, Volrath the Fallen would be fun to. the early stages of my The Mimeoplasm deck was voltron and my two-headed commander deck Wasitora, Nekoru Queen was a great voltron commander. anyways nice deck.

I think I'll bump Phage the Untouchable up to the side board so that I can mess with people

Thanks for appreciating!
Phyrexian Dreadnought is the single best card in the deck, and the deck is built around tutoring it as soon as possible. As a result, replacing it efficiently is impossible a no other creature can offer such a high power for such a low mana cost. That being said, there are a few "decent" alternatives:
Virtus the Veiled is less of a voltron creature, but potentially deals more regular damage.
Depending on how casual your playgroup is, you could consider Phage the Untouchable as a very expensive one-shot kill.
Just keep in mind that without the Dreadnought the deck will be significantly slower.

Note: re:Above list. Serra has no creature legendary so it may exclude her.
- Arcanis the Omnipotent
- Bosh, Iron Golem
- Dakkon Blackblade
- Haakon, Stromgald Scourge
- Higure, the Still Wind
- Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni
- Jaya Ballard (one creature, 2 walkers)
- Karona, False God
- Kresh the Bloodbraided
- Lyzolda, the Blood Witch
- Maralen of the Mornsong
- Mayael the Anima
- Momir Vig, Simic Visionary
- Phage the Untouchable
- Raksha Golden Cub
- Reaper King
- Rith, the Awakener
- Sakashima the Impostor
- Seshiro the Anointed
- Sisters of Stone Death
So now figure out which ones are most likely to fit into Tefiri's Past/Lore. Still say Sidar is most likely, But Jaya as another creature card could be possible I suppose.

Board wipes that seem "on theme" and white "ramp" to consider. Kaya's Wrath Fumigate Retaliate Austere Command Decree of Pain Martial Coup Merciless Eviction Descent of Dragons Angel of the Dire Hour Magister of Worth Sunblast Angel Boreas Charger Oreskos Explorer Surveyor's Scope Solemn Simulacrum Sword of the Animist Verge Rangers Smothering Tithe Sword of Feast and Famine Dowsing Dagger Flip
Queen Marchesa doesn't have a clear single way to build so you have lots of options. However, I feel like said you want to play her like the Kween she is and create a royal court full of politicin' and group interaction to make all the boys whine. I don't think you want to discourgage people from taking the monarch from you, more encourage them to swing others IE: NO Ghostly Prisons, YES Teysa effects. Punish the ones who swing you only after the fact and reward the ones who swing others. There is a lot listed!
You will also want to get retake the throne each turn and lets face it, the Assasin's won't always get through Dauthi Embrace Dauthi Trapper Nether Shadow Nether Traitor Soltari Visionary Changeling Outcast Tormented Soul Break Through the Line Ferropede Gingerbrute Key to the City Whispersilk Cloak Trailblazer's Boots Zhang He, Wei General Yellow Scarves Cavalry Wei Night Raiders Wei Scout Xiahou Dun, the One-Eyed Lu Bu, Master-at-Arms Guan Yu, Sainted Warrior Shadow Alley Denizen

OK with the fact that the parallel release of a commander product with a normal set means that they'll include more legends that aren't EDH-pushed yet still interesting, e.g. Yidaro
Quite happy about Mothra, Flawless Maneuver, and the red warrior that gives menace to anyone that attacks your opponents for my Marisi deck. Shiny Impetus is... meh, but it got the right spirit.
I hope there's enough EDH-playable mutate cards to support the abzan, jeskai, and temur apex legendaries as commanders
the Human mardu commander isn't bad, but it's even less interesting than Syr Gwyn
Kelsien is there to carry Kalemne and zombie!Daktos I guess
Shabraz is very, very silly and I approve
Lukka: make a deck where all creatures are either 1 drops (or 0 drops and tokens instead) or bombs, then feed one of the little ones to this guy
Was going to post this several hours ago before I ran into DNS problems: "Flavorwise, let's acknowledge that this set is ripping off various monster movies, Pokémon, & Monster Hunter, and that's OK. (Sharknado copyright holders, now is the time for one last cash grab by suing over a certain blue enchantment.)"
Finally: Am OK with the Kaiju alt cards since they're non-canonical, although I'd prefer if they didn't use art that features modern non-sci-fi stuff like skyscrapers. I realize that's a tall order with the genre in mind though. As for the Spacegodzilla thing, I think they could get away with it since corona-related humor is pretty widely accepted as a global coping mechanism, but even then I agree that specifically "Death Corona" is really cringeworthy here. Hell it was pretty bland to include "Death" in the title in the first place since afaik SGZ isn't associated with e.g. zombies; "Void/Cosmic/Astral Corona" or something would have been more fitting (Godzilla franchise fans are free to voice their disagreement).
