ZendikariWol on Commander Suggestions!

I have this lovely Sisay, Weatherlight Captain politics/kingmaker deck! It's got a really fun new toy from C19 in Pramikon, Sky Rampart .

I play a lot of +1/+1 counter decks and I've tried a lot of commanders for the strategy, including some of my favorites; Marath, Will of the Wild , Marchesa, the Black Rose , Ezuri, Claw of Progress (which uses, weirdly, a lot of the same creatures as UG enchantress, minus the bogles), and I bet I could make a really weird, cool one with Feather, the Redeemed using Heroic + a lot of Support and other +1-counter-related spells. We'll see.

I also play a lot of aristocrats, my favorite commanders for that being Meren of Clan Nel Toth (who my spikier friends were quite concerned about), Korvold, Fae-Cursed King (who is very easy to just pop off with), and Reyhan, Last of the Abzan partnered with Ravos, Soultender (yes, that's a +1 counter deck too but it's more of an aristocrat deck)

I also have a Roon of the Hidden Realm blink deck, Sygg, River Cutthroat and Daxos of Meletis decks that focus on combat triggers, a Tiana, Ship's Caretaker aura deck, a Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer token deck, an Emmara, Soul of the Accord tap tribal deck that is sad beans after losing Paradox Engine , an Aminatou, the Fateshifter topdeck matters/trading permanents deck, an Odric, Lunarch Marshal keyword tribal deck, a Feldon of the Third Path deck (you can guess what it does), a Karlov of the Ghost Council voltron deck (yes, you heard me right), and a WUBRG Nekusar, the Mindrazer deck headed by King Kenrith himself!

That being said, my decks haven't been upgraded in a while. Most of them still hold up, but we'll see. Maybe I'll make some alterations.

bushido_man96 on Who is your favourite "Uncommander?"

I've put together several of the Uncommon Commanders, because I really enjoy them.

My Tatyova, Benthic Druid deck, Tatyova, Land-Matters is probably the best one I have. Of all the uncommon commanders printed, I could see her getting reprinted at rare. She's that good, even with the higher CMC.

I finished up Slimefoot, the Stowaway recently: Slimefoot, the Stowaway, and it is a very solid build, even without the staples like Doubling Season and all those expensive cards. Golgari is my jam, so I really love it, and its very consistent.

My favorite of the bunch is an Azorius build I did with Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage at the helm: Raff's Renewal. His ability allows me to play the bulk of the deck at instant speed, and makes for some fun interactions. Its probably the least consistent of my decks, but the one I like the most.

I've also got a Valduk, Keeper of the Flame Voltron build, and am working on a build with Tiana, Ship's Caretaker . The uncommons are great to build with!

The weakness of voltron is removal, so starting of with a commander that is either hexproof or indestructible imho is more important than an ability that makes it a threat.

As K1ngMars stated Sigarda, Host of Herons is a good voltron commander, running your 3 suggested ones as part of the 99.

If you are willing to be a bit flexible on the Selesnya pairing splashing red for Uril, the Miststalker could be great. he is both hexproof and a natural voltron ability. It also allow s you to run some nice voltron cards like Runes of the Deus Temur Battle Rage & Tiana, Ship's Caretaker (and many more these are just nice budget ones that come to mind). Your deck could still be mainly comprised of selesnya cards (including the ones you may already have)

If you were set on a selesnya voltron commander out of the ones you suggested i would recommend nazahn. As Balan is mono white and I think Mirri is so much better built as a classic wide board selssnya deck. I like Mirri at the head of an army and most of it getting through because they can only block with one creature.

Not sure what you would replace it with, but Tiana, Ship's Caretaker might be useful in case your curses get blown up somehow. They, of course, count as Auras, which she returns to your hand at the end step.

Thanks, EPICSpider23, for all the comments, help, and the links. I do look forward to comparing brews in the future!

Rona, Disciple of Gix is intriguing. I may have to look over EDHRec for some ideas. Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive can just be a pain in the but, and run with cards like Coastal Piracy can really rack up value.

I'm going to run a little combo/recursion action with Tiana, Ship's Caretaker , running Auratog , Krark-Clan Ironworks , and a ton of equipment. It may be janky, but I think she'll be fun.

Hey bushido_man96, so here's the link for my Hallar boy: Hallar the Firekicker and I've also got a Brawl deck with Tiana, Ship's Caretaker which has the amazing combos of Valduk, Keeper of the Flame , Danitha Capashen, Paragon and Kwende, Pride of Femeref . I might upload that at some point because at the moment it's just on paper.

I almost made a Rona, Disciple of Gix Commander but there wasn't enough content, I was after equipments/enchantment that gave her Ingest or ": Exile card from target player's library/graveyard/hand/whatever" but there was nothing so I was really diappointed, even after all the exile in the recent Zendikar block.

Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive is also really interesting but at the moment I'm slotting her into a Standard deck (while it's in rotation) combined with Rat Colony , sweet combo. This is in construction here: Tetsuko's Colony.

I don't know whether you've played Oathbreaker or not but I've started using the new uncommon planeswalkers in that format too. Uncommons are just the greatest for budget XD

I'll be keen to hear from you again and hope we can assist each other in our brewing :)

Poly_raptor, thank you for the suggestions. The more I look at Tishana, Voice of Thunder , the more I think I might need her in here, if not for another "no maximum hand size" effect.

EPICSpider23, thank you for the suggestions, as well. I'll address them bit by bit...

Tideforce Elemental does appear that it would be quite helpful. The more I play, I'll see if I need more of that effect, and it may go in. It's added to the Maybeboard for sure.

Lotus Cobra isn't as expensive as it used to be, so I'll consider it, as well. Its just figuring out what to cut.

The other landfall cards are good cards, but I'm not necessarily looking to gain 300 life, so the lifegainers I'll probably pass on (although they would go very nicely in a more landfall-focused build). Guardian of Tazeem has a solid effect, but not sure if I want to wedge that in there. I've got a decent removal package right now, but I'll keep it in mind. I was aware of Tireless Tracker ; I've got a copy I run in a Titania, Protector of Argoth deck. Also a good consideration. At the time of the initial build, it was more than I wanted to pay for a card I didn't have another copy of. Now that I'm fine-tuning, I'm more likely to spend a bit more on a card here and there. The drawfall cards I'm going to pass on; if I switch out too much stuff, then I lose the original theme of the deck with the Moonfolk and land bouncing effects, which I want to keep.

As for the Planeswalkers; I'm not averse to them, I just don't own many of them, and I try to make my initial builds fairly easy on the budget. Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner has a decent static ability and a useful loyalty ability, but I'm not sure she's quite worth a spot in the deck. The others, I just don't have.

Now, on to other matters: I really enjoy the uncommon Commanders, too, and have built around several of them; Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage , Valduk, Keeper of the Flame , Slimefoot, the Stowaway , and am currently working on a Tiana, Ship's Caretaker build. I'd love to see your Hallar, the Firefletcher build. I like him, and think he's worth a build, but am just curious as to how consistent he is for you, and how you manage the kickers, etc. Looking forward to your reply!
