The Beamtown Bullies

Legendary Creature — Ogre Warrior

Vigilance, Haste

: Target opponent whose turn it is puts target nonlegendary creature card from your graveyard onto the battlefield under their control. It gains haste. Goad it. At the beginning of the next end step, exile it. (Until your next turn, that creature attacks each combat if able and attacks a player other than you if able.)

One bonkers card for The Beamtown Bullies? There you go:

Beamtown Devastator

Artifact Creature - Construct

Trample, Vigilance, Haste

When ~ enters the battlefield, exile cards from the top of your library until you've exiled 30 land cards.


I tried to balance it for being a heavy build-around option in a standard-legal set while still being powerful for the Bullies. Thoughts?

Create an Artifact Creature - Bird Equipment.

It's because you give creatures from your own graveyard to your opponents, and then Goad them.

So a goaded creature can't attack you if there's anything else to attack, and The Beamtown Bullies makes your opponents beat down each other with your stuff.

So because you're safe from the attacks of your own creatures, you can fill your graveyard with creatures with the most devastating attack triggers that only bully the defending player. That's what you see happening here. These Eldrazi creatures have the biggest impact on the battliefield because of their annihilator-like attacking triggers, while still be able to reside in the graveyard. An Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre would be awesome to make one opponent send at the other, but the Bullies say 'nonlegendary' and shuffling your graveyard is not great in this deck.

I haven't seen the deck in action, but I assume The Beamtown Bullies reanimates one of these creatures under an opponent's control. Since the Bane of Bala Ged or whatever is goaded, the opponent will be forced to attack another one of your opponents, hopefully killing a few creatures and exiling a couple of key permanents. It's basically forcing one opponent to use mass removal on another opponent.

I read the thread when I tried to look up the rules for the cards which is kinda important for EDH Endless Whispers. (I plan on including it in Obeka)

In a 1v1 match it mostly tries to get the best creature of an opponent while donating negative effects. But in commander it becomes a game of "hot potato" where you can never be sure who gets the creatures of another player but you can decide what "garbage" you donate. That is the gist of what the deck will do in a multiplayer game.

Depending on what you give away you may want cards that can counter triggered abilities in case ove Leveler, Sky Swallower, Boldwyr Heavyweights, Eater of Days, Hunted Wumpus, Inverter of Truth, Dust Elemental, Avatar of Discord, Indentured Djinn Ebon Drake Plague Reaver Master of the Feast Tempting Wurm, the haunted one like Hunted Troll, Hunted Dragon,Hunted Dragon, Hunted Lammasu or Hunted Phantasm. Personally I would use Obeka, Brute Chronologist to counter the ETB of the creatures you play by ending the turn and then giving them to an opponent. But that only works for when the creature with negative effect enters the battlefield during your turn. But it is a great plan B in case you don't have Endless Whispers to give your opponents creatures from the list above by simply playing an 8/8 trample for then ending the turn before the trigger resolves.

Other options are Jon Irenicus, Shattered One or Blim, Comedic Genius both want your opponents to control your creatures. If you just want the effect of giving your opponents negative ETBs you can also build a deck on The Beamtown Bullies. But including Endless Whispers in this deck can backfire by giving you one of the negative effects if the creature dies. And it also is hard to let e.g. Leveler enter the battlefield to donate it through endless whispers. What helps with that may be to manifest a creature with a negative effect with e.g. Scroll of Fate. You can also manifest creatures with negative effect from your library but that is a bit more random.

To prevent getting creatures with negative effects from your opponents you to gain hexproof. There are plenty of effects giving yourself hexproof in white but I couldn't find a good commander for that. To gain hexproof yourself in a non white deck you most likely need Orbs of Warding which may be the way to go to prevent opponents to return the hot potato to you. Which is what I do in Obeka (sadly I don't have any list online of that deck).

If you like Endless Whispers to take your opponent cards however you might rather want to play Grave Betrayal or Lim-Dul the Necromancer. Overall it can still be used as a politicle tool. Especially if you donate one of the Haunted once you can build a pact with another player that you always trade them with each other to get more and more tokens.

Talking tokens it is also possible to put Endless Whispers in Grismold, the Dreadsower which gets into the direction of Dagger Burn known through Rampaging Ferocidon, Trespasser's Curse, Massacre Wurm, Slaughter Specialist and e.g. Illness in the Ranks/Virulent Plague. Whenever you donate Hunted Troll to an opponent or it enters the battlefield you let the 1/1 faeris directly die causing Grismold to trigger and also cards like Poison-Tip Archer.

It is also possible to play with effects like Plaguecrafter, Abyssal Gorestalker, Gravelighter. The player who gets the creature has to sacrifice one creature less and choses who sacrifice one creature less the next turn. But as long as you profit from death triggers via e.g. enchantments or artifacts you will profit most from your favourite card.

I also like Rakdos the Defiler to use Endless Whisper. After all one can donate some negative effects and if the opponent sacrifices creatures they have to donate them to someone else. Altough that also works better in 1v1.

I hope the explanation helps to find the right deck to play Endless Whispers in Commander.

Necrosis24 on Have you ever discovered a …

During a game with my The Beamtown Bullies deck I had a Leveler in hand and a Greater Good in play but no other creatures on board besides my commander. So I was unable to discard Leveler without sacrificing my commander, but in doing so I would not have enough mana to recast my commander and one of my opponents would win next turn thru combat damage so I did not have time to wait.

So my only option was to hard cast Leveler which would exile my library and in response I sacrificed Leveler to Greater Good to draw 10 cards then discard three cards. Then Leveler's ability would resolve and exile my library. Luckily I drew Tel-Jilad Stylus which is meant to combo with Oriq Loremage, but in this case it would keep me from decking myself completely.

On my next opponent's upkeep I reanimate Leveler thus exiling their library and they would lose on their draw step. So then I activate Tel-Jilad Stylus targeting Leveler putting it into my empty library so now when it comes back to my turn I don't lose when I draw a card.

Oh...Jon Irenicus is an interesting commander. A little less feels bad than The Beamtown Bullies as well since you can't just one-shot people at instant speed with Leveler or Bronze Bombshell. Homeward Path is now in need of a reprint more than ever with all of these donation style commanders popping up.

Yesterday on Worldgorger Combo + ETBs?

Oh jeez, I just realised that I completely misunderstood what you were trying to do.

Yes, if you are constantly flickering your own The Beamtown Bullies as part of a Worldgorger Dragon combo, you can respond to the Woldgorger exile trigger to tap Beamtown Bullies to reanimate a Bronze Bombshell under you opponent's control. Your opponent will be made to sacrifice the Bombshell before your Worldgorger flickers everything again, and then you can rinse and repeat this.

In-colour for Beamtown Bullies as a commander, you could do this with Emergence Zone, Necromancy, Vedalken Orrery, or Vernal Equinox.
