At end of turn, if an opponent lost 3 or more life this turn, you may draw a card. (Damage causes loss of life.)

Sygg, River Cutthroat Discussion

Dammjan on My first own deck

Thank you for your advice once again. I decided to add Zur the Enchanter and Dimir House Guard since I think I ve enough enchantments which cost 3 cmc or less. Further more I decided to add Sygg, River Cutthroat to the deck, since I am sure I will often do more than 3 damage and hopefully my oppononents do it too. And he is a pretty cheap card too. I decided to remove Conclave Tribunal since I don t think it was a fitting card in the first place. I decided to remove Ugin, the Ineffable but I am not sure if it is the right decision but I don t know what to remove otherwise. Maybe you can tell me. The last card I removed was Diabolic Tutor since Dimir House Guard seems to be the better choice to find Zur the Enchanter in my libary. Thank you.

On a budget, I guess Underworld Connections might make the cut. If you find your hand is consistently tiny, Midnight Oil isn't as bad as people think, you just need to be able to play both cards you draw consistently. Castle Locthwainis another option that works if your hand is always small, and War Room might be a bit of life, but Alela has lifelink. Dawn of Hope could work if Alela deals damage often. Faerie Formation is reasonable if you want a 1/1 faerie and a card, and a 5/4 flyer is pretty beefy. Sygg, River Cutthroat is probably good enough to consider, Court of Grace and Court of Cunning both give you the Monarch, which means a card, and the bodies you generate might make it harder for people to take it from you, and 1/1 flyers going wide will always be getting it back. The Blue Court can actually be a backup win con if people can't take the Monarch from you due to Pillowfort effects.

Zur the Enchanter isn't quite card draw, but it is card advantage, possibly multiple turns worth of it. He can find removal, or potentially card draw, so Zur seems like good value for mana if your deck runs enough enchantments he can find. If you want to find him (or any other card), you might consider Transmute cards rather than card draw. If you always want to have access to Zur (or any 4 MV card) you can Transmute Dimir House Guard into that card, and it's cheaper than Diabolic Tutor while not being a spell, and thus being much harder to interact with. Transmute cards exist at other values as well, mostly 0-6 and 9, and they are always in U or B, which Alela has access to.

Hope some of this is helpful! I will probably build an Alela deck at some point myself, so it's neat to see what other people put together

I've played a lot of games with my Anowon deck and what I've found is that Anowon unfortunately does not mill enough to ever kill anyone that way. I've made mine more like a rogue tribal version of a Sygg, River Cutthroat deck where we just hit them with unblockable creatures and use the mill as a vehicle to steal stuff. Throwing in some ninjas to make the unblockable nerds better has also been great. With that said if you want to mill them for the kill I won't judge you for that ;)

This is a good take on Breena. I think people are seriously undervaluing the power of all those +1/+1 counters. A notable comparison besides Tymna is Sygg, River Cutthroat . I would reference traditional tempo builds of that deck when looking for cards. I plan on leveraging some evasive hatebears with Breena to finally actualize my dream of a turbofog edh deck that can actually kill people. This is especially fun with the college dragon that lets me give people creatures while drawing cards.

Have you considered playing Sygg, River Cutthroat considering how much cedh plays hurt themselves.

Ah I see.

You are correct that if the commander's color identity is pure white, then you could only include colorless and white cards. However, Tazri, Beacon of Unity 's color identity is thanks to the appearance of those symbols in her text box.

If you go with Tazri, you might consider picking these up: Coveted Prize , Nimble Trapfinder , Thwart the Grave , Crib Swap (this card has all creature types, so it can be picked up via Tazri's ability!), Nameless Inversion , Linvala, Shield of Sea Gate , Zagras, Thief of Heartbeats , Squad Commander , Oakhame Adversary , Malakir Blood-Priest , Veteran Adventurer , Sygg, River Cutthroat , Nullpriest of Oblivion , Moritte of the Frost , Nin, the Pain Artist

First of all: I'm not really the best person to give feedback on a type of deck that I've never played. I mostly mastered Esper colors, but red is a bad color for me to use.

Next, there are some basic things that a commander deck needs. You need Lands, Removal, Ramp, Draw, and Wipes.

EDHrec has recommendations for your specific commander and it's common playstyles. The site's flaws are any new cards that have only recently came out, and you might find some really good cards that are either relatively new or as obscure as f** due to the fact that the site is based on popularity.

Scryfall can find obscure or new cards perfect for your new commander deck.

As for the basic tools a commander deck needs, it all comes down to 36-37 lands (these need to generate mana. However, some have certain effects and count as spells), 6-8 removal spells (cards that counter spells or destroy permanents), 5 board wipes (Example is Wrath of God and Doomskar. Other options for Grixis are Damnation, In Garruk's Wake, AEtherize, Cyclonic Rift, Fade Away, Devastation, which you should NOT run in a casual deck with casual friends, I REPEAT NO IT WIPES LANDS DO-, and Blasphemous Act), 10 draw spells (Read the Bones, Notion Rain, for decks with unblockable creatures Sygg, River Cutthroat and Bident of Thassa, though there are probably other forms of repeatable draw found in your colors), and 10 forms of ramp. These can take the form of mana dorks which are creatures that generate more mana, like Llanowar Elves, or a blue version of it can be Apprentice Wizard, mana rocks, which are the second safest form of ramp and are most common. Dimir Signet, and Rakdos Signet, and also Izzet Signet are both really good. Sol Ring and Arcane Signet are found in ZendiCommander decks, or Zendikar Commander decks. Land ramp is the safest form of ramping and is most commonly found in Green, but Blue can do it as well due to the release of Planar Chaos. Expect more land ramp in other colors soon with the release of Time Spiral Remastered. Dreamscape Artist is that one single land ramp found in blue.

These are the absolute basics of a casual commander deck. Have fun!
