Using Blade of Selves with Reyhan is pretty inspired, I like doing the same thing in a Roalesk, Apex Hybrid deck. Honestly, Roalesk would probably be pretty good here, too, along with Chasm Skulker and Prime Speaker Zegana .

I've got a more aristocrat-focused Reyhan/ Ravos, Soultender build that runs stuff like Elenda, the Dusk Rose and Teysa Karlov . Check it out if you want.

I really like this deck start. I would add more Wood Elves type cards and have less instants/sorceries. Ex: Springbloom Druid , Farhaven Elf , Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip.

You're talismans are good ramp but are strictly worse than basic signets. I would replace them. In a deck with hefty lifegain they might be better - but i can forsee taking a ton of damage from then.

Terastodon and Venser, Shaper Savant should be mainboarded.

The The Immortal Sun , Guardian Project , Mystic Confluence , Ulvenwald Hydra , Seedborn Muse , Rune-Scarred Demon Muldrotha, the Gravetide , Hornet Queen , Courser of Kruphix , Oracle of Mul Daya ...and anything with Landfall are my least favorite cards for the deck. I think Landfall is an entirely different style this commander can be played with - as in I think it would need support from the entire deck and need to abuse Landfall with more cards. Right now I think the deck has a bigger Control theme. Cards like Roil Elemental or Sire of Stagnation need to be protected - and need an entire support system of counters and Explore and Harrow and Scapeshift and Splendid Reclamation and Crucible of Worlds etc etc.

I think you would benefit more from cards like Equilibrium Treachery Strionic Resonator Lightning Greaves Diluvian Primordial Duplicant Prime Speaker Zegana

Also you can probably go down to 32 lands.

Bojuka Bog graveyard destruction!

Reliquary Tower no hand size is nice if u have good draw


Craterhoof Behemoth super strong in combination with your commander tho its a bit pricy

Man-o'-War good for bouncing enemy beefy targets or your own creatures for more ETB

Prime Speaker Zegana good draw with the etb doubler

Progenitor Mimic keep making copys each turn of the creature u want

Tireless Tracker Nice landfall trigger wich can make him beefy


I would throw in some counters, counterspell, mystic confluence, swan song etc. cyclonic rift is also really strong in any deck with blue!

Bababad , would you prefer Rishkar's Expertise or Prime Speaker Zegana ? They essentially do the same thing, but you get a creature with one and more cards in play or whatnot with the other.

Here's a question: what colors do they already play?

Also, I've had the same issue with my mom (since I play with her and she doesn't like complicated multicard interactions, generally the decks I build are simple enough for her to understand but strong enough to compete) and generally the commanders that I've noticed work best for commanders are the big legends from RTR block ( Isperia, Supreme Judge , Lazav, Dimir Mastermind , Rakdos the Defiler , Borborygmos Enraged , Trostani, Selesnya's Voice , Obzedat, Ghost Council , Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord , Prime Speaker Zegana , Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind , Aurelia, The War Leader) or the first legendary from each of the tricolor decks ( Rafiq of the Many , Sharuum the Hegemon , Sedris, the Traitor King , Kresh the Bloodbraided , Mayael the Anima , Zurgo Helmsmasher , Anafenza, the Foremost , Sidisi, Brood Tyrant , Surrak Dragonclaw , Narset, Enlightened Master ).

None of them are horribly expensive, and you can build fun decks using any of them using simple strategies but the nice thing about them is that you can slowly build them up into better and better decks over time if you like playing them.

Besides another Ghired recomendation, I want to suggest two other commanders:

  • Prime Speaker Zegana - great colors, multiple ways to build (I went with wizard tribal, but there are better option as well) and can scale how impactful it is.

  • Korvold, Fae-Cursed King - this guy is part of the new Brawl decks in throne of eldraine set that have not even come out. His theme is obvious - sacrifice things for value, but he does it extremely well.

Commanders that draw cards with their abilities are great for new players.
