You can link cards by enclosing the name in double brackets. I'll do so here so that people can get an idea of the colors/strategies that these cards support.

Scalding Tarn

Valakut Awakening  Flip

Takenuma, Abandoned Mire

Tergrid, God of Fright  Flip

Tekuthal, Inquiry Dominus

Preston, the Vanisher

Leyline Binding

Isochron Scepter

Looking at this list I'd say the most cards you are going to fit into a single deck would be some sort of Nekusar force feed deck with Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter in it. This would let you run Scalding Tarn, Valakut Awakening  Flip, Takenuma, Abandoned Mire, Tergrid, God of Fright  Flip, and Isochron Scepter. It definitely wouldn't be the most powerful Nekusar deck, but it would let you run the maximum number of the listed cards IMO.

Thanks for the suggestions, they're awesome! I wish I could use Tergrid, God of Fright  Flip but it's banned in the league. I'm going to mull over these cards and figure out what changes I want to make. I'm definitely adding Burglar Rat. I cant believe I missed that one in my search for discard triggers.

Hey there!

Rogue's Passage is a good, cheap staple for decks looking to win via commander damage.

Kaya's Ghostform is awesome for providing basically an extra life to dodge removal.

I'd look at replacing some single-use, low impact discard like Mind Rot with some better stuff that affects multiple opponents like Syphon Mind.

Burglar Rat is a straight upgrade to Corrupt Court Official.

Tergrid, God of Fright  Flip is on the expensive side for the budget, but so, so good. Similarly, The Haunt of Hightower would be really good as a "backup commander".

Heartless Pillage can be replaced with Unnerve

Ill-Gotten Gains might be a good card to help pump your commander's power quickly.

Hope that helps, happy building!

ImNora on I Need Card Draw Help

I'm building a Tergrid, God of Fright  Flip deck centered around discard and card draw for all players. It's intended to play as a non-taboo Tergrid (IE not making everyone top deck the whole game, no land sacrifices, few creature sacrifices, etc). The goal is to make players constantly discard so we gain permanents but also make them draw lots of cards so they aren't angrily top decking.

So here's my question. Am I missing any cards that make players draw extra cards each turn? I added all the ones I know of but I'm guessing there's more.

That's what you get when you complain for five years that white is not good enough in commander. You'll get powerful cards that excell in what white does well. You'll get asymmetrical stax pieces that cripple the game, from the command zone. Can we finally stop bullying white as the weak color in commander?

It might be as problematic as Tergrid, God of Fright  Flip, which is on the same watchlist for the rules committee and therefor might regulate itself. Doesn't mean it's not miserable to play against. Torpor Orb is miserable to play against, and that just disables creature etbs. This even disables an Obscura Storefront. It's literally the same mana value as Yarok, the Desecrated, does the same thing, and then some.

This is as much a big middle finger from the command zone as I've ever seen. A quick search for the oracle text "when" "enters" "battlefield" gives 3781 results. That's about 17% of all unique cards printed. About 1 in 6 cards printed ever is hosed by this card . I understand the worries the RC has, even if they present them in an unbecoming way.

It's a very powerful card. Better Panharmonicon and a one-sided better Torpor Orb is a lot of power on a commander. It can obviously be backbreaking to some decks that depend heavily on ETB or landfall effects. I think if you play Elesh Norn as your commander you should expect people to try to remove it as soon as it hits the battlefield. But is it in the same league as Leovold, Emissary of Trest? No, I don't think so. Rule 0 discussions should mean that new Elesh Norn decks aren't played too often against decks that can't deal with it in some ways anyway. Those discussions have kept Tergrid, God of Fright  Flip from getting a ban and I think Tergrid is a much more annoying commander from a social aspect.

I do think there is a risk if more cards of a similar power level start being printed regularly. If every set has something equivalent in power and as potentially annoying to play against then the format might start having a problem. I don't have a huge problem with a card for Elesh Norn being very powerful. She's the leader of the Phyrexians! She should be crazy powerful! I just don't want it to become a trend for cards.

Your opponents would be able to return the cards they discarded to Ill-Gotten Gains. Tergrid, God of Fright  Flip's triggered ability would only resolve after Gains had fully resolved, including the "return to hand" portion.
