Mortlocke on New hubs to be added

3 months ago

Hello legendofa,

I propose a new hub to be added: Phyrexian. During Modern Horizons 2, 225 creatures were retconned into having the Phyrexian creature subtype to join Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider . Additionally, there were a smattering of Enchantments, Artifacts and etc that ether have the Phyrexian subtype or create creature tokens that do. Thanks to this retcon I now have a deck that has a Phyrexian tribal theme. For your reference, below is a full list of spells that were affected by WotC's Phyrexian errata.

seshiro_of_the_orochi - Thank you! I love Beacon of Immortality and used to have it in an old Selenia, Dark Angel deck where I could one-shot someone if I had Tainted Remedy in play. Thank you again for the suggestions!

Check out Selenia, Dark Angel she is a cool commander that pings for 2 damage to return her to your hand. The idea with her is at the EOT of your opponents turn activate her ability with an odd life total to win the game with Near-Death Experience . There are lots of decks based off her.

What about something Orzhov, centered around draining, paying and switching life totals?. W/B offers lots of control options and there are several commanders that fall under that strategy. I personally like Selenia, Dark Angel because her ability allows her evade removal and can be stacked for life loss effects.

Esper has alot of stax builds though I'm not too familiar with the commanders. Black or Rakdos could be discard centric which is also a kind of control. There's Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger or something more Janky maybe like Neheb, the Worthy with a dash of Minotaur Tribal.

This is awesome! I have my own brew of Selenia, Dark Angel that I put on the shelf for a bit but happy that I stumbled across this for some inspiration and ways I can tweak my own. Check out the list here: Selenia's Suicide Squad. Thank you again! +1!!

Karlov is the 'tried and true' and likely easier route to go. Vona I think would require a different approach to make better use of their ability (untap effects, effect copy). Me being me would likely give Vona a try being as it's the path less traveled.

Black generally has no problem ramping (Urborg, Coffers, Black Market, sac effects), and white is slowly getting better ramp (Smothering Tithe), and mana rocks are a thing. So either way I think you're covered. I think the question is: Will you gain big chunks of life at a time (Vona) or small increments of life (Karlov). That I think would be the deciding factor for who gets the captains chair.

Not to further muddy the waters, but Selenia, Dark Angel is a fun commander for a life manipulation deck because her ability stacks, then you use the life loss/low life total to your advantage.

JANKYARD_DOG on The EDH Deck Building Process …

I think my most prominent inspiration is 'The Underdog' commanders. The not so popular, never considered tier 2 or above types. Take for instance Isperia the Inscrutable and Selenia, Dark Angel both I had never seen at a table and at the time, under 100 decks by EDHREC stats.

Second would probably be 'outside the norm' things. Example; Redless Dragons, or taking a popular commander like Riku of Two Reflections and making it an energy deck. Maybe this would fall under the 'Jank' classification? If that's the case you can add Golos.Wincon.dec which is just as it sounds... Mazes End, Gates, Approach, etc 'I win' cards.

And then there's tribes. I like some popular ones like dragons, and humans but I strive for the lesser known/supported like Wurms and Golems. Or try at least. If any of this sounds remotely interesting feel free to snoop. Love the articles btw #Moar_TO_Content_FTW. Keep em coming.
