Rith, the Awakener Discussion

LanceBluPaladin on Advertise your COMMANDER deck!

Hello everyone,

I've been working on this deck for a while now and wanted to get some feedback on it. I'm going with a more conservative route on making tokens using Rith, the Awakener . I'm also using spells to generate tokens, Planeswalkers, enchantments, and even a land as well. Creature removal and board wipes are huge in commander so I figure by using enchantments and some other spells I could keep a pretty solid board state and rebuild easily.

There are some other things in the deck like Purphoros, God of the Forge and Impact Tremors . So the deck has win conditions in there and even an infinite combo between an enchantment and a creature as well which I didn't even think about at first.

Let me know what you think?

Tokens "R" Us

LittleBlueHero on Commander 2019 early hopes and ...

I love tribal. I have a really hard time building anything that doesn't at least have a tribe as a sub-theme so I wouldn't be opposed to seeing some tribal love even if its not the focus of the decks, much like Animatou had a zombie sub-theme.

If they do I for sure would love some new cards for underrepresented tribes like Dwarves, Orcs (who just got new cards in m20) or Skeletons Etc.

DemonDragonJ I agree I think all the invasion dragons and Planar Chaos dragons should not only be reprinted but get a new art treatment. The updated arts on Crosis, the Purger , and Rith, the Awakener were awesome and I would love if the rest got that treatment. The cards aren't as strong as commanders as they might have once been but when I see a card with awesome art im gonna find a way to build it anyway.

Idk about the Plane itself, but I love Naya colors :-)

I'd rec' a Token theme ... some of my favorite Naya Commanders ( Rith, the Awakener and Hazezon Tamar ) worked very well with that as a theme. It's maybe like you said, that the denizens revere huge Creatures ... so a huge Creature that makes more worshipers seems quite on-flavor.

In case it might help, my favorite way to pick themes is to check the available Commanders in those colors and see what theme(s) they suggest. If nothing else, we know there's already enough support for them in those colors to make a decent EDH deck. Here are the Naya ones ...

Good luck (and good skill) with the design!

Have you checked out the gaea's cradle championship edition... its only $50 and gold cards are totally legal in commander. Just a thought, I took the dip this week on my first cradle. Yay!!!

Anyhow great deck and its always great to see the underused commanders. I actually made a Rith, the Awakener deck that has a lot of memories for me too. Keep up the foiling!

Dragons should pick from:

Utvara Hellkite , Scourge of Kher Ridges (could be a good wipe for the board, 2x mana for ur, 4 mana to do 4 damage to each creature), Nicol Bolas (wipe someone's hand turn 6? yes, please), Hellkite Overlord (Big damage), Tyrant's Familiar (single creature killer), Scourge of Nel Toth (direct return ability), Ojutai, Soul of Winter (this is a maybe, gives vigilance), Eternal Dragon direct return ability, Dragon Mage Drops your hand into graveyard plus drawing 7 cards..risky af given it help others, Chromium, the Mutable you can actually pay 2 on ur to make him hexproof with this card..could save Ur in time of need, Bladewing the Risen this guy is weird idk if i would put it in because enter the battlefield abilities don't help Ur, Balefire Dragon fuck yes, Atarka, World Render Huge damage. low toughness, Vorosh, the Hunter 6 counters for Ur, Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire a little risky but seems to be worth it, Teneb, the Harvester yes yes yes, Silumgar, the Drifting Death give ur hexproof, Rith, the Awakener many tokens, Palladia-Mors, the Ruiner hexproof trample vigilance, O-Kagachi, Vengeful Kami potential permanent killer, Numot, the Devastator destroy lands (probably should be left out), Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius draw a card, Intet, the Dreamer I think he is really good, Hellkite Tyrant could steal you a bunch of artifacts, Dragonlord Silumgar steal a creature a turn if using ur. steal a creature if putting out permanently. good for removing a particular blocker, Crosis, the Purger good against mono decks.

DemonDragonJ on Ravnica Allegiance: Spoilers and Speculation

8 months ago

Judging from the past several sets, will all angel tokens now have both vigilance and flying, or is that something being done for only those sets?

Also, the original Ravnica block had Rakdos Pit Dragon , the Return to Ravnica block had Hypersonic Dragon , and now, this block has Skarrgan Hellkite , meaning that the Boros guild is now the only red-aligned guild that does not have dragons (in fact, there are no pure red/white dragons in the game, at all: Rith, the Awakener , Numot, the Devastator , and Oros, the Avenger all have a third color), so will the Boros eventually have dragons, as well?

ZendikariWol on Enchantment Voltron Commanders

9 months ago

First of all, it doesn't need to be voltron. I can go wide with enchanted creatures too. Still, I want to make an enchantment voltron deck but I don't know which commander I want to use. Here's who I'm considering so far:

Tuvasa the Sunlit

Estrid, the Masked

Tana, the Bloodsower plus Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker

Zurgo Helmsmasher

Ruhan of the Fomori

Any of that cycle of legendary dragons (probably Dromar, the Banisher, Rith, the Awakener, Vorosh, the Hunter, Numot, the Devastator)

Storm Crow

Of course, new additions are welcome if you can make a convincing claim for them, but note that I play in a fairly noncompetitive meta, so decks that want to win immediately and shut out all interaction are off limits.
