Tahngarth, First Mate

Legendary Creature — Minotaur Warrior

Tahngarth, First Mate can't be blocked by more than one creature.

Whenever an opponent attacks with one or more creatures, if Tahngarth is tapped, you may have that opponent gain control of Tahngarth until end of combat. if you do, choose a player or planeswalker that opponent is attacking. Tahngarth is attacking that player or planeswalker.

Curious how Silent Arbiter works with Tahngarth, First Mate and if that would incentivize other people to use him more or just piss off the table. Unsure if he prevents the ability or let’s other players use Tahngarth as a second attacker. Food for thought anyway. Glad the manotaur is getting some love!!!

Amazing deck! I did not realise there was someone before me with this idea, and I love how your deck is looking. Cards to consider for your Maybeboard: Acorn Catapult, Death by Dragons, Elephant Resurgence, Kamahl's Summons, Plague of Vermin, Tempt with Vengeance, Artifact Mutation, Dowsing Dagger  Flip, Curse of Disturbance, Liege of the Hollows, Sawtusk Demolisher, Akroan Horse, Hungry Lynx, Life of the Party, Sleeper Agent, Tahngarth, First Mate and lets not forget the "Hunted" cycle with Hunted Horror, Hunted Dragon and Hunted Troll

I'm happy that somewhere out there (R&D), they have someone trying to push the viability of newer strategies, & strategies that focus on the multiplayer aspect of this format. I think this same person/team is taking new, creative archetype failures into consideration & finding ways to improve on those failures.

SUBJECTIVE IMO Examples of this: Karazikar, the Eye Tyrant=success, can go toe-to-toe with some more solo fishbowl decks out there. Kardur, Doomscourge=success + budget + frequently keeps up with the more fishbowl strategies. Marisi, Breaker of the Coil=success + somewhat of a pioneer in his field. Kaima, the Fractured Calm=failure - too much design flaw - no ward - massive buildaround - couldn't give him an activated ability to destroy ench? or some spice Tahngarth, First Mate=failure - Creative yes, no oomph to play an impactful game against control, fishbowl, & non-combat meta

Even though I feel some of the failures are a bit tonedeaf when you see some of the other beasts being put out in more established archetypes - it always seems like someone in R&D takes note & circles around to try to address those failings. Goad keeps getting ways around haste, I feel that eventually creature gifting will receive a commander that has a built in workaround for the: "opponent sacs my gift" issue

I don't think any card loves combat more the Tahngarth, First Mate.

Sorry to ask, but how the Berserk + Tahngarth, First Mate combo work? I can't understand why the creature wouldn't be destroyed. Is it because it is already tapped and attacking without you declare it as an attacker? Do you know where I can find the ruling for this? I'm a bit confused lol

I like how the guy above this comment just casually strolls in and tells you to put in a bunch of moxen...

That said, warriors is one of my favorite tribes and I've made a ton of decks with them! Plus Najeela is such a badass commander! These are my suggestions that you haven't included and could serve as some better synergy with your deck than your non-warriors:

  • God-Eternal Oketra make huge 4/4 zombie warrior tokens on every warrior cast.

  • Oketra the True make warrior tokens and acts as a big beater itself.
  • Oketra's Monument tons and tons of warrior tokens.
  • Rush of Battle warrior themed overrun that gains you tons of life.
  • Herald of Anafenza gets bigger and makes warrior tokens at the same time.
  • Raiders' Spoils probably the best card draw you'll see for warrior tribal.
  • Gilt-Leaf Ambush elf warrior tokens with sometimes deathtouch.
  • Hunting Triad elf warrior tokens or modal +1/+1 counters.
  • Presence of Gond give a creature a tap for elf warrior token ability.
  • Lovisa Coldeyes more warrior lord buffs!
  • Obsidian Battle-Axe haste and auto-attach to warriors equipment!
  • Regna, the Redeemer and Krav, the Unredeemed act as a sac outlet and warrior token generation combo.
  • Lord Windgrace deck filtering, color fixing, and generation of a ton of cat warrior tokens
  • Great Hall of Starnheim gets you a 4/4 angel warrior token in a pinch
  • Base Camp cheap 5 color land for warriors
  • Starnheim Unleashed make a ton of 4/4 angel warrior tokens!
  • Emeria's Call  Flip make angel warrior tokens and give your non-angel warriors indestructible or make it a land
  • Ascent of the Worthy pretty fun tricks on this.
  • Firja's Retribution make a 4/4 angel warrior token and give angels destroy and double strike.
  • Battle for Bretagard make warrior tokens, then make copies.

    The black-bordered card that can already attack during an opponent's turn, is Tahngarth, First Mate . I know it's not exactly the same, but the concept you were meddling with, has gone through Wizards designers heads as well, it seems. Just in a way that it's multiplayer only.
