Thanks for the upvote bushido_man96

They’re all very good ideas, this draft is still very early stages so I’m going to have another tinker around over the next few days, this probably will be the next list I actually build on paper so I really appreciate the input.

I wish I could afford/justify a Gilded Drake !

Flickering is interesting but I’m not sure what I could cut out for that effect..

What would you think of using a different commander? I feel like, at the moment it sort of screams “I’m going to steal your stuff” and people may well think twice about what they put into play with Show and Tell or hold up counterspells. But if I used Roon of the Hidden Realm or even Phelddagrif then it make it more of a surprise when I cast Blatant Thievery , for example.

It depends on what kind of deck you like to play. Chulane, Teller of Tales is really powerful since he has a built in draw/ramp engine (and if you like playing combo that's a big deal). And you could very easliy build him around using flash creatures to get value (hell, he could lead a pretty nasty faerie subtheme deck).

Roon of the Hidden Realm is very strong in that he takes advantage of other creatures that have ETB effetcs, however doesn't really do anything himself. the problem with Roon is that he can be very unfocused, in that there are so many good ETB effects that the deck ends up being a little all over the shop. He can be very powerful however with cards like Gilded Drake however, since Roon lets you bounce anything.

I think that you could happily run Chulane in a Roon deck, but not the other way around though.

Ultimately it comes down to your preferred play style, I would personally play Chulane over Roon, but that's because Chulane suits me better.

shadow63 on Do you switch between Commanders ...

I usually try to build as much synergy as possible around my general. So swapping what commander I want to use will make the deck weaker. I could see doing it of I'm playing something like Chulane, Teller of Tales and switching it around with Roon of the Hidden Realm but they're just so similar the game plan wouldn't change.

I play Muldrotha, the Gravetide and no other legend does what she does and the deck was made with her in mind so using a different general would be putting a needless handicap on the deck. And I'm by no means playing cEDH

Forkbeard on Chulane or Roon?

I'm curious to hear opinions on who you all think is the better general for a creature heavy blink/flicker/ETB style of deck. Roon of the Hidden Realm is the classic Bant flicker general of choice, but the draw/ramp + bounce option on Chulane, Teller of Tales is very appealing.

I have this lovely Sisay, Weatherlight Captain politics/kingmaker deck! It's got a really fun new toy from C19 in Pramikon, Sky Rampart .

I play a lot of +1/+1 counter decks and I've tried a lot of commanders for the strategy, including some of my favorites; Marath, Will of the Wild , Marchesa, the Black Rose , Ezuri, Claw of Progress (which uses, weirdly, a lot of the same creatures as UG enchantress, minus the bogles), and I bet I could make a really weird, cool one with Feather, the Redeemed using Heroic + a lot of Support and other +1-counter-related spells. We'll see.

I also play a lot of aristocrats, my favorite commanders for that being Meren of Clan Nel Toth (who my spikier friends were quite concerned about), Korvold, Fae-Cursed King (who is very easy to just pop off with), and Reyhan, Last of the Abzan partnered with Ravos, Soultender (yes, that's a +1 counter deck too but it's more of an aristocrat deck)

I also have a Roon of the Hidden Realm blink deck, Sygg, River Cutthroat and Daxos of Meletis decks that focus on combat triggers, a Tiana, Ship's Caretaker aura deck, a Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer token deck, an Emmara, Soul of the Accord tap tribal deck that is sad beans after losing Paradox Engine , an Aminatou, the Fateshifter topdeck matters/trading permanents deck, an Odric, Lunarch Marshal keyword tribal deck, a Feldon of the Third Path deck (you can guess what it does), a Karlov of the Ghost Council voltron deck (yes, you heard me right), and a WUBRG Nekusar, the Mindrazer deck headed by King Kenrith himself!

That being said, my decks haven't been upgraded in a while. Most of them still hold up, but we'll see. Maybe I'll make some alterations.

Here's the ones I had a lot of fun with. I changed each of these into tricolor decks, so it's the dual color paired with the tricolor it corresponds with. I think any of the 20 are pretty fun and unique in their own way.

Dragonlord Ojutai / Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest extra turns/control

Grimgrin, Corpse-Born /Muldrotha the Graveside mill/grave control

Kolaghan, the Storm's Fury / Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire goblin/dragon tribal

Mina and Denn, Wildborn / Surrak Dragonclaw cheating creatures/creature combo

Selvala, Explorer Returned / Mayael the Anima elf tribal/super ramp into creatures

Daxos the Returned / Ertai, the Corrupted enchantments and sacrifices

Meren of Clan Nel Toth / Anafenza, the Foremost sacrifices and +1/+1 counters

Rashmi, Eternities Crafter / Roon of the Hidden Realm bounce and etb abuse

Arjun, the Shifting Flame / Kess, Dissident Mage spell slinging and mass draw

Brion Stoutarm / Mathas, Fiend Seeker burn and destroy

Goretast This was my Roon of the Hidden Realm deck until Chulane got spoiled and well So Long Roon!!! We'll see you some other time. Once i procure a Glimpse of Nature it's immediately slotting in for Beck / Call . Shrieking Drake , Whitemane Lion , and Dream Stalker may eventually find themselves a slot in the deck just not currently.
