Bartel Runeaxe

Legendary Creature - Giant Warrior

Haste, Vigilance, Shroud

Whenever Bartel Runeaxe attacks, put a +1/+1 counter on it.

Creatures with power less the number of +1/+1 counters on Bartel Runeaxe can't block during your turn.


Make a legendary creature thats descended from one of the old legendary creatures similar to how Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive and Toshiro Umezawa are descended from Tetsuo Umezawa

Toshiro Umezawa maybe? It was my first commander, and I've just revamped it. You can simply stuff the deck with Doom Blade s of all kinds, some card draw and any obscure wincon you wish for. Mine currently are Aetherflux Reservoir , Torment of Hailfire and Revel in Riches , but I originally went with a Voltron approach. The deck can basically be mono kill storm and doesn't need any expensive cards to do what it needs to do.

legendofa: Good to know. I thought it was one of these commander-only cards that picked up an older mechanic. Awesome. Btw, Battlefield Thaumaturge is such an awesome card. I have multiple copies and after dismantling my flicker deck, I still haven't found a new shell for it.

Looking at Thaumaturge, Toshiro Umezawa is anothwr nice fit with Dismiss into Dream .

You're welcome.

I see you've already found the spot for Citadel. What did you cut for it?

I have K'rrik and Vilis in my Toshiro Umezawa list, and Citadel is in there, too. The three are a veeery powerful combination of cards. Vilis can often help in situations where Citadel gets stuck and the second land on top, and the others are insane ramp. Also, he basically is removal on a stick that draws cards at a great rate.

Trickster's Shadowblast


Secretly choose a number between 1 and X. Then choose an opponent. That player guesses your number. If they guess the correct number, ~ deals X damage to any target. If they guess the wrong number, ~ deals 3 damage to each creature and each player.

Draw a card.

I always felt that Toshiro Umezawa could easily be a Dimir character. He's reckless and very ambitious, but also adept in planting traps for his opponents. Create a Dimir of Toshiro.

Black Market and Toshiro Umezawa could be decent here

Hey DemMeowsephs, thanks for the suggestions:

Dark Ritual, I was running this in my old Toshiro Umezawa deck (which could easily cast it twice), but I never found it to be worth a slot. That deck (and this one) wasn't really designed to ramp out the commander, or get a game-winning combo going early on, so I found that I'd rather have a mana rock than a single turn ritual effect.

Bubbling Muck, This one on the other hand looks much more suited to this deck. I'm still in the early days of testing this list, but I'm sure i'll proxy it at some point to give it a try. I could see this as a late-game enabler that gives me a TON of mana to cast Chainer and use him to reanimate a few Creatures on the same turn. Great suggestion!

Thought Vessel, Hmmm, this is kind of a "win more". I also don't mind discarding down to hand size because it lets me put high CMC Creatures into my graveyard so I can reanimate them with Chainer for only 3CMC. I'm also hesitant to add any more rocks that can't tap for black mana

Read the Bones and Sign in Blood, I love these cards, and I do want to add them in, but for this initial build I'm fousing more on Creatures that give me effects like this (like Disciple of Bolas), or engines that work well in longer games (like Phyrexian Arena, because this deck tends to take a while to get to a state where it can win.

Vendetta, I think I already have too many dedicated removal spells, and this one eats away at my health (which Chainer already does a LOT), and my Meta has a lot of Black in it.

Dimir Machinations, I like Transmute spells, but I prefer ones that I can hardcast for a good effect. Shred Memory is good emergency graveyard hate, and Dimir House Guard is an evasive, regenerating Sac outlet, and both have a wide range of situational and outright powerful tutor targets. Dimir Machinations is just never worth hardcasting unless someone has used a Vampiric Tutor on a mainphase, but that's an unlikely corner case. I also don't have too many goot targets at 3CMC, Dead of Winter would be the main one that might be worth spending 3 mana to fetch out, but this deck prefers to loop Plaguecrafter to clear a board.

I'll have to have a look through all your primers, they look really cool and very detailed! I'm assuming you need an upgraded account to set styles like you have.

Toshiro Umezawa might be a good choice. It's control, it doesn't use counter spells, but instead plays all the Doomblades.
