Urza, Lord High Artificer

Legendary Creature — Human Artificer

When this enters the battlefield, create a 0/0 colourless Construct artifact creature token with “This creature gets +1/+1 for each artifact you control.”

Tap an untapped artifact you control: Gain .

: Shuffle your library, then exile the top card. Until end of turn, you may play that card without paying its mana cost.

The_War_Mammoth Simic or blue/green have a lot of low cost synergies and combos that go for easy wins like taking turns or Birthing Pod strategies. But if you enjoy stax and control then I highly recommend Urza, Lord High Artificer he has strong synergy with cards like Winter Orb, Static Orb, Trinisphere and Back to Basics. To win with him you assemble infinate mana through a couple different options Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter , Basalt Monolith + Rings of Brighthearth , Grim Monolith + Power Artifact or Basalt Monolith this let's you draw your deck with his ability and traditionally you use Thassa's Oracle or Laboratory Maniac to end it. Being in blue also gives you access to counterspells which is where most of you control will come from. Some of the artifacts and combo pieces may be expensive for him though, but another option though in 3 colors is Zur the Enchanter he let's you play a spell for free when he hits letting you grab Stasis, Rule of Law or Spirit of the Labyrinth to punish opponents winning involves swinging zur until you kill each opponent with coleander damage. Also you can run Necropotence to draw your deck out and win via Thassa's Oracle, obviously he is in blue so counter spells will go a long way to control your opponents.

Hmm Cody isn't super competitive in my opinion but the other two are considered the top in terms of competitive commanders. I second the mono color idea for cost but keep in mind against four and five color decks your interaction and ability to win against them will be low. At minimum I would do a 2 color deck for competitive with the exception of Urza, Lord High Artificer others like Godo, Bandit Warlord, Selvala, Heart of the Wilds, Yisan, Wanderer Bard and K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth are super explosive but, being in one color makes them into glass canons. What kind of budget are you working with? And do you have any ideas on how/what you want to play?

DawnsRayofLight on Breya, Etherium Shaper cEDH combo!

I feel like Farm-IKraum would make a better shell for a cEDH Thoracle-consulation list, at least in my opinion. Obviously there is nothing wrong with doing things differently.

Breya wants to run more artifact combos, especially anything that can make infinite mana ( Pili-Pala + Grand Architect, Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal + mana rocks, Dockside Extortionist + Deadeye Navigator, etc) with a sac outlet to do infinite damage with her. that infinite mana can also use Urza, Lord High Artificer to combo off and cast your deck basically (with thoracle to finish).

jaymc1130 on Which non-partner commanders would you …

There are a number of commander pairings that I'd love to see be possible for a number of reasons.

First on the list is Birgi, God of Storytelling  Flip and The Reality Chip. Doesn't strike me as overly powerful, but it could be fun to run 2/3 of a Sensei's Top combo in the command zone. My gut tells me it wouldn't be quite as capable as the archetype already is with Elsha, but it would be a nifty pairing none the less.

Second on my list would be Gavi, Nest Warden and Rielle, the Everwise. Another nifty pairing where they play off each other's strengths. The Gavi+Library of Leng+Decree of Silence soft lock gets even better when it also draws a card each time you slap down an opponent's spell on their turn, exactly what a control deck like this needs to be effective. Doesn't change the deck any, just puts Rielle into the command zone for convenient access.

Sisay, Weatherlight Captain and Yoshimaru, Ever Faithful would be just too cute a pairing. The theme would be strong with this one.

Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca could be fun with Sygg, River Guide, Jori En, Ruin Diver or Dalakos, Crafter of Wonders to cram even more cool merfolk into merfolk tribal.

Tergrid, God of Fright  Flip and Tinybones, Trinket Thief seem like a match made in heaven. Ditto for Emry, Lurker of the Loch and Urza, Lord High Artificer.

Mina and Denn, Wildborn and Aesi, Tyrant of Gyre Strait would be THE definitive "lands matter" commanders, right up my alley.

All of these seem like fun, none of these mashups present a true problem for the format in terms of play pattern powerlevels, but not all my wish list pairings are things that would play nice with the rest of the format.

Najeela, the Blade-Blossom and Plargg, Dean of Chaos  Flip/Derevi, Empyrial Tactician, for example, would break the entire format.

Guerric on Good Cards That You Just …

4 months ago

It's funny you mention Grand Abolisher. That card has been in my binder forever. Maybe I should trade it for an Esper Sentinel. Drawing cards is more fun than stax.

A card I hated and rejoiced when it was banned was Golos, Tireless Pilgrim. Much of my hate stems from it ruining standard when it had been good, and one of my favorite standard decks was Orzhov Vampires in Core 2020 standard simply because I could wreck Golos/Field of the Dead decks right and left. I also feel like Golos was bad for commander, because there was little incentive to run other five color decks. Also, he has no real flavor. Urza, Lord High Artificer may be broken, but he has tons of flavor and it makes sense. Golos is basically the tin man from the wizard of Oz becoming some sort of god, like he replaced the wizard or something. If its going to be broken and warp the format at least it should be epic. At any rate, I'm a low ban kind of guy who wants them to unban more stuff, but Golos and Paradox Engine are the two bans that made me happy.
