Gleeock on Jund or Glint-eye (whiteless) Oilmannder

9 months ago

Thantis, the Warweaver likes counters and proliferate as well. It would be a labor of love since Jund doesn't just spell out any oil decks for you (like Abzhan).

Another option would be Tana, the Bloodsower with a black-splash partner

Epicurus on I'm looking to build a …

legendofa is absolutely correct. However, I had at one time thought it would be interesting to build a Golgari deck with Reyhan, Last of the Abzan and Slurrk, All-Ingesting. They might work here also, though Carth the Lion is a better choice. I mention it because I was trying to figure out a partner combo that would get you into Jund, which there isn't really anything that would be better than Carth. The best I can figure would be either Kamahl, Heart of Krosa with Vial Smasher the Fierce, or Tana, the Bloodsower with Krav, the Unredeemed. Either would be viable options (albeit much different deck designs) if you wanted to add Red to the identity. Of course, using Krav would stretch the rules, since Tana is not actually its partner.

Triton on Tweaking Naya Tokens

1 year ago

Recently put together a Naya token deck with Tana, the Bloodsower and Prava of the Steel Legion, and needed suggestions on what to cut for Angelic Exaltation and Chord of Calling. If there are any better suggestions than the former of the two, I'd love to hear them! The deck as-is struggles with starting up token generation I've noticed, is there anything I'm missing potentially to get a large army out?

Here's the deck in question:

Saprolings of the Steel Legion

Commander / EDH Triton


Abaques on Background pairings

I'm in the process of brewing a deck with Wilson, Refined Grizzly and Shameless Charlatan with the idea of turning Wilson into a copy of whatever is the best creature on the battlefield. Wilson's cheap to cast and has some baked in protection and nice abilities in case there's nothing great to copy. I'll be putting a bunch of +1/+1 and ability counters on Wilson. Kind of a build my own voltron.

I also built a background tribal deck with Tana, the Bloodsower and Tymna the Weaver at the helm called You Came From Where?. Its pretty low budget (I just bought some cards to slightly improve the mana base) but it can be surprisingly powerful. Its not surprising, but Noble Heritage and Raised by Giants are really, really good with Tana and Tymna. I've made tons of saprolings and gained a whole lot of life very quickly. Basically partner commanders are very strong with backgrounds.

Overall I really like what they did with them. They meet the need that Battle for Baldur's Gate had for the draft environment without really breaking things like the partner mechanic kind of has.

Abaques on So what are the Background …

1 year ago

Unlife I'm working on a Tana, the Bloodsower and Tymna the Weaver loaded with backgrounds and other 'commander matters' cards like Fury Storm and Bloodsworn Steward. I don't think it'll be great by any means, but hopefully it'll be fun.

Kazierts on SKELETONS!

When I said Jund, I actually considered Tormod, the Desecrator and Tana, the Bloodsower. Mainly because Tormod just sinergizes very well with a lot of skeletons and some Skeleton support also supports zombies too (namely Death Baron and Death-Priest of Myrkul.

Another option, but 4 colored, would be still Tana, the Bloodsower now with Ravos, Soultender. You can still have Tormod in the deck, still have access to a lot o reccursion (even in your commander) and get a lot of good anthems, and tribal support, in white.

bushido_man96 on DePietro and Channel?

Partnering with Tana, the Bloodsower also opens up the opportunity to use cards with the Bloodrush ability, expanding on the theme you want to abuse with the Channel ability.

Another option to give Pietro more evasion is Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa. But that will limit your pool of Bloodrush cards moreso.

Necrosis24 on DePietro and Channel?

This has made me realize I’ve been reading Ghost of Ramirez DePietro wrong this entire time. I thought his trigger was tied to the player that was dealt damage.

Well anyways my top pick for a partner would be Tormod, the Desecrator for all the graveyard shenanigans (i.e Living Death) and discard value.

Some high synergy cards would be:

Looking at channel tho there seems to be a higher density in temur so you would have access to better ramp and can do wheel/card draw affects. So perhaps Tana, the Bloodsower with:

  • Rielle, the Everwise

  • Brallin, Skyshark Rider  Flip
  • The Locust God + Wheels
  • Conspiracy Theorist
  • Mizzix's Mastery + Lier, Disciple of the Drowned
  • Glint-Horn Buccaneer
  • Surly Badgersaur
  • Otherwise you can go for purate tribal in izzet with Breeches, Brazen Plunderer or monoblue with Malcolm, Keen-Eyed Navigator
