Sisay, Weatherlight Captain Discussion

Generally avoiding one of the Seven Deadly Sins is a good place to start. Personally, I find treating the fairer sex as human beings, rather than objects to be desired, works pretty well. For more information, feel free to check out Jane Austin or similar sources of information.
Those cards are always cited by individuals seeking a justification for objectifying women. I think this argument is flawed in a couple respects. First, and foremost, if those cards were objectifying men, two wrongs do not make a right; it wouldn't change the fact that objectifying women is wrong. Second, I do not think either of these cards really objectify men. They are designed to be sexy characters, but they are not designed to be purely sex objects. Enthralling Victor stands tall and proud, in a natural pose that exudes confidence. Rakish Heir likewise is shown in a moment of victory, covered in the blood of his prey. These are not objects; they're powerful figures who exude power. Siona, Captain of the Pyleas has her legs bare, Sisay, Weatherlight Captain has her middriff exposed... but both are drawn to be individuals in positions of strength; their exposed portions are not to objectify them, but just part of showing their character. Same goes for the Birth of Venus--Venus might be nude, but Botticelli draws Venus with a degree of character and uses the nudity to further define a character that is inexorably intertwined with lust. I'd say your other example was purposefully designed to be provocative, and create a visceral reaction in the viewer, so isn't actually a good example to prove your point.
Again, it seems a lot like you are trying to justify something that 100% of the responses on the thread have said is problematic.

Astral Cornucopia is actually halfway decent with proliferation, I'd say better in this deck than Relic. If he can reasonably proliferate a couple time in the first handful of turns(by t5 or so), it's a 3-mana rock that has the potential to tap for 3, 4, 5+ mana as the game goes on.
Everflowing Chalice is a 2-mana rock anyways, and then it can add 2, 3, or 4+ easily after a few turns.

But other than that, Elk Sisay is entirely ramp and disruption.
I also have Mairsil, and that's just really easy to randomly win by drawing one specific card. I need more 1-card combos tho.

Thanks for your suggestions! I just played (and lost) a couple of games with The Ur-Dragon. Maybe with different ratios of color, I'll add more basics and see how it goes. I might cut some of the tri-lands and add battle lands. I'm a bit worried about battle lands because it will be disappointing if they ETB tapped, although replacing some of my worse mana rocks with basic land ramp might fix this. Cascading Cataracts will also help my mana, and I can also look into getting cards like Chromatic Orrery.
Great suggestions and I would like to hear more, especially dragon recommendations and dragon cuts. I really need early game blockers going up against Syr Gwyn, Hero of Ashvale and Sisay, Weatherlight Captain decks.

Glimmer would be great if she could flicker or bounce more ... maybe Derevi, Empyrial Tactician? Also found this Linessa, Zephyr Mage it would be better if she did something other than 'granduer' for the commander format
Perfuma's great on flavor but her function might be better found in Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy
Mermista might be cool as Noyan Dar, Roil Shaper or Prime Speaker Zegana something about the way she is in the show makes me think that she can get suuuuper big p/t wise. Maybe even Gravelgill Duo because of her cynicism?
anyhow, it's got me thinking ^_^ here's an alter for She-Ra Sisay, Weatherlight Captain

I hate that Lithoform Engine goes into 80% of EDH decks below power level 8. It's so stupidly universal, why not put it in? Does your commander have an activated ability or care about instants, sorceries, tokens, or generating value by doubling your spells? Congratulations, you account for roughly 90% of the commander format.
This card would slot very comfortably into five of my seven paper decks (Roon of the Hidden Realm, Sisay, Weatherlight Captain, Ezuri, Claw of Progress, Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge, with Chainer, Nightmare Adept, and Korvold, Fae-Cursed King being the exceptions). It slots comfortably into four out of my best friend's four decks (Golos, Tireless Pilgrim, Meren of Clan Nel Toth, The Ur-Dragon, and Olivia Voldaren).
This card is not nutso bonkers silly powerful. It is, however, so versatile that as long as your deck can spend 4 mana on an artifact that does nothing immediately (which most EDH decks can at some point in the game), you should probably be running this card. I don't like cards like this at all. The strokes it paints in are just too broad, which is a shame because this card would be a massively cool proof of concept for a new deck I want to make, Double Masters: helmed by Riku of Two Reflections and sporting only cards which have a 2 on them or interact somehow with 2. It's a shame that this card isn't cool and is instead just very, very good.
Sorry if this is a rant but I am annoyed; I love this card as a johnny, because I want to maximize it, but the floor is so broadly applicable that it's useless to do so, and it'll probably be prohibitively expensive anyway- we love being a Magic-playing college student- because of its broad strength.

I think those cards are amazing for comboing out and going infinite in cEDH. I generally dont want to go infinite in this brew because I have 2 other infinite combo decks in Marath, Will of the Wild and Sisay, Weatherlight Captain.
this deck mainly wants to interact with any opposing deck and have varied games in my goofy meta.
