Selvala, Explorer Returned. She generates lots of man and card advantage. Because of this you can cut lots of ramp cards and card draw cards. I myself have a selvala deck and can tell you from experience that your cmdr will likely not be the target of removal. Also players like selvala

In a 1 v 5 I'd recommend using a suggested deck from the Cedh database/discord. If that's not your thing then perhaps a commander that scales with the amount of players like Selvala, Explorer Returned.

Build Selvala, Explorer Returned good ol Selesnya stompy. Its perfect for ramping into big creatures all while keeping your hand full. And with cards like Nature's Chosen, Instill Energy and Thousand-Year Elixir you can really make some mana plus the added life gain

enpc on Isochron scepter and dramatic reversal …

Monomanamaniac: Unfortunately because you are casting spells, it does mean that dramatic scepter is suseptible to both ability hate but also storm hate, which has gotten me a few times before. But in a vacuum, it's one of the more compact combos.

I think the thing which makes it so strong is that it's such a low cost to entry on the combo - you only need 4 mana available to play and activate scepter which is super low. I used to run Tooth and Nail for Deadeye Navigator / Palinchron (with a bit of Rune-Scarred Demon enabling) in a Damia, Sage of Stone list which was good, but you always had to generate so much mana to so you could combo out with counterspell backup. With Scepter, a Mana Vault or Grim Monolith basically pays for the combo by itself and makes you mana positive.

The other thing I like with the combo is that there are replaceable pieces for it. I run the combo in my Thrasios, Triton Hero deck (alsongside Tymna) and I have Sigil Tracer who with Thrasios lets you copy Reversal on the stack. You can also use Nivix Guildmage or Izzet Guildmage in this role. But I was even toying with hte idea of using Isochron Scepter + Vitalize + Karn, Silver Golem as a janky combo in Selvala, Explorer Returned. I know it's not a great combo but it shows how you can adapt it so easily.
