GrimlockVIII on Dream Tribal Commanders

Im down for a proper Skeleton commander that actually does something for the tribe other than simply exist as a skeleton (Im lookin at you Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon , you pompous asshole).

Id preferably want a Golgari Skeleton commander to take advantage of the recent Skeletal Swarming that came out in the Forgotten Realms set.

Greetings Odric_Magnusson,

In response to your question of What Creatures would you put in? (that have infect) - based upon your current decklist and design the infect creatures I would recommend need to compliment your deck's +1/+1 counters matter subtheme and should be relatively threatening on their own. Therefore, I suggest:

  • Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon : This one is a bit of a no-brainer next to Hand of the Praetors . It has evasion, built in protection and haste. Skittles is a longtime favorite of mine, and is truly an infect staple in my opinion. This one is at the top of the list, without a doubt.

  • Viral Drake : This creature ties in with your deck's +1/+1 counters matter subtheme by serving as an excellent mana dump for proliferation triggers. On top of having infect, it also has evasion. A great pick in my opinion.

  • Ichor Rats : This creature serves as a means of getting poison counters on players when they have a Pillow Fort strategy online before you could get infect combat damage in. Additionally, it's a great recursion target if you can get multiple triggers of it's ETB effect.

  • Inkmoth Nexus : This is an honorable mention, but this land has served me well over many games. It has built in protection due to being a land and +1/+1 counters do not fall off of it when it stops being a creature. The icing on the cake is that it also has evasion.

That's it for my suggestions. Your list is pretty good, and definitely will make any opponent weary of you during any point in a game. +1 again! lol

Mortlocke on New hubs to be added

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.

Vallaris Oooh, you should totally make a Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon block deck!! That would be so gooood. But mono-colour using only cards from one block would present problems of its own. Hmm, interesting.

Vallaris on Commander Challenge! Build A Block …

2 months ago

If I were to build around a specific block, probably Scars of Mirrodin since Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon was my first ever Mythic. Kind of tempted to build that for real...

Second choice would be Innistrad block with Olivia Voldaren or Mikaeus, the Unhallowed . This set I was far more familiar with and saw much more of that than SOM block. It's hard to choose a favourite between those two blocks, but I think I have to give it to Innistrad.

1empyrean Ikoria is definitely a good set to build around! My Snapdax, Apex of the Hunt deck was almost entirely cards from Ikoria when I built the rough draft of it (plus some from Theros Beyond Death). After editing, the majority of the cards were still from sets that came out that year (although to be fair, some of those included cards from Mystery Booster and 2020 Commander). Still, over half the non-land cards are Ikoria, and if I had to make a version that was Ikoria only, it could definitely be done and not be much different.

Moltensteel Dragon is an artifact, and Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon was from Scars of Mirrodin which is an artifact heavy block, so there's that.

When you say "artifact sub theme", can you provide a little more clarity on that? Do you want graveyard artifact combo? Big artifact creatures? Stax? Know this will greatly help streamline suggestions from people.
