Vallaris on Dream Tribal Commanders

3 months ago

I would love to see an Orzhov commander for bat tribal. Only 22 bat creatures have ever been printed, plus two other creatures that generate bat tokens, and then one artifact that does as well. I really don't know exciting this would be for other players, but for me it would definitely be a dream come true commander for me.

Crossing my fingers like mad for something good from the Innistrad sets later this year. I do have a bat EDH deck, but would like the commander to be an actual bat.

Something that flips, like Screeching Bat  Flip that's a bat on one side and a Vampire on the other, but Legendary of course would be cool, but I'd be happy with any Orzhov bat commander. The two non-bat creatures that create bat tokens have white in their identity (a few bats do as well) so WB would definitely be necessary. I feel like Mardu is crossing too much into Vampire territory, and while they have their obvious associations in game, Bats have exclusively been BW so far and I'd like them to keep their identity that way.

As for what this commander would do, anything along the lines of generating a swarm of small fliers, anthem effect for bats, or something with an Exquisite Blood type of effect for bats when they damage a creature, planeswalker, or player, I would be beyond overjoyed. Something really kickass for a super niche tribe.

I think I'd run a playset of Supernatural Stamina and take out Screeching Bat  Flip

Possible Rare Additions

With the ideal of 13-card boosters, and accounting for bad math in the previous post, if we end up with 442 or 429 cards in the cube then it is evenly divisible by 13.

Needs a bit of balancing. There are undoubtedly a few rares in my collection I didn't include. Also could add a few duplicates of uncommons that are already in the cube.

In addition, I've collected the dual and most of the utility lands from Innistrad and Dark Ascension...

Clifftop Retreat, Hinterland Harbor, Isolated Chapel, Sulfur Falls, Woodland Cemetery, Moorland Haunt, Nephalia Drownyard, Stensia Bloodhall.

I may add Kessig Wolf Run and Gavony Township, finances permitting.
