DuTogira on Overperforming Cards?

Portcullis . Does almost all the same work as Ensnaring Bridge for a fraction of the $.
Also Sunforger because so much fun shenanigans come out of that card. It’s not that good. It just FEELS amazing

You want a truly hard lock, I need to you suspend disbelief on how difficult it would be to set up.
Mycosynth Lattice + Consulate Crackdown + March of the Machines + Portcullis + Dovescape

If I get that setup, you’re done playing. Unless there’s a creature you can figure out how to cast for 0 mana in gruul with an etb that destroys artifacts/enchantments. Although I could just add a Darksteel Forge before casting March of the Machines and force you to exile now.

If you Mutate Skullbriar, the Walking Grave you could keep some of those counters while in the graveyard etc. He would have to be the top card I think.

Portcullis can be a hard card to work with, but your opponents couldn't play more creatures and you could still Mutate things.

Mutate works on cards you own, not control, so if you can trade creatures from any number of effects you can keep theirs and then Mutate onto the card you traded.

Cephalid Constable or anything with Myriad (careful of the legend rule)

There are 5 creature based board wipes in the deck an 4 of them make tokens. The 4th one is Ezuri's Predation . That card had a very interesting interaction with token doubling. The extra tokens created do not fight.

Anyways enough about that.

Reverent Silence is awesome. The fact that it can be free is soo cool I'm surprised I've never seen it in action or I've never seen it in my searching. What else do you guys got? Oh and DuTogira I've been raving about Portcullis to alot of my friends with super friends decks. That card is so good.

Portcullis is a brilliant commander card whose praises I will always sing

Vadrok looks really sweet and fresh! I’ve been brewing it after seeing your requested commanders video.

My comfort zone is green creatures, stompy, and overrun, so I might use this to branch into a stax/control style. It’d punish crazy ramp and board states, bringing them down to my level, white—style. Recurrable ones include Restore Balance , Smoke , AEther Barrier and Soul Barrier , and your Culling Scales . Some cost more than 3 but are still effective - Damping Engine , Portcullis , Noetic Scales , Incite Rebellion .

I guess from there, win by attacking? Or find a combo. It’s a case of decision paralysis atm, but it’ll be easier to shave down once I decide on a direction.
