TheLoreSeeker on Weatherlight Crews Past & Present

I love this! I had been planning a Sisay lore friendly deck for about three and a half months, but I never could decide whether I wanted to include cards like Yawgmoth, Thran Physician or Urza, Lord High Artificer which did get original border treatment and came out in the same set as Sisay; but to what extent does one involve the weatherlight crew when there were entire sets dedicated to their villains ( Crovax the Cursed, Volrath the Fallen, the Slivers as a whole on Rath and Dominaria, Tsabo Tavoc ) to what degree does flavor keep the deck from playable. Even now, remembering the lore, the Nine Titans, Eladamri, Lord of Leaves and Belbe, Corrupted Observer; all the prints of Squee alone! lol. There's just so much to go off of. So many strategies one could take and characters you could add.

To see a completed list, no matter how flavorful and thematic. It's a relief to see it doable.

There are just so many cards, and characters alone, from the sets, Weatherlight to Dominaria United, that are lore relevant to characters like Karn, or Gerrard. Urza alone got three sets to his name which include some of the largest staples in magic; some include later reference to the crew. Likewise with characters like Mangara who was in Mirage. It's just such an expansive story, I've got two one-subject notebooks literally just organizing cards specifically referenced in lore, story, literature, and trying to make a viable deck from it without using staples.

This delights me to no end! You've done the work and the deck looks great. If I ever manage to construct my deck list, would you be alright with me linking it here? Seeing you driven by the theme and flavor of the weatherlight is a touch inspiring.

I was going to try and in the 99 of my deck bring all the items to the Legacy Weapon which was largely constructed from Ramos, Dragon Engine and has nearly twelve cards alone just referencing the thing. Seeing this deck list, was really cool. Makes my day you could say.

The_Revenant_Wyvern thanks for your comment! Yeah this deck definitely has that metal vibe, when smashing someone's face with 21+ commander damage in one hit! and it wins surprisingly often too - I even had a game the other night against Tatyova, Benthic Druid, Orvar, the All-Form and Prosper, Tome-Bound in which Volrath the Fallen proceeded to knock everyone out (with a bit of luck from the EDH gods of course!) single-handedly! Was so epic!

Mortlocke on New hubs to be added

Hello legendofa,

I propose a new hub to be added: Phyrexian. During Modern Horizons 2, 225 creatures were retconned into having the Phyrexian creature subtype to join Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider . Additionally, there were a smattering of Enchantments, Artifacts and etc that ether have the Phyrexian subtype or create creature tokens that do. Thanks to this retcon I now have a deck that has a Phyrexian tribal theme. For your reference, below is a full list of spells that were affected by WotC's Phyrexian errata.

My all time favorite is Balthor the Defiled but I also really like Kami of the Crescent Moon and Xira Arien . I've also seen really cool builds around Volrath the Fallen too! I play in quite an underpowered play group so these might not be best picks for you but I would still try giving them a shot! You never know, a janky old lengendary might be the perfect match :)

Volrath the Fallen was the first EDH deck I built of my own. I loved that card since it came out in Nemesis.

You know 3n3rgy2, I thought about running Chainer but I honestly like Balthor more. It's such a powerful (though expensive) ability! And yep, it's called An Old-School Nightmare; you may have seen it before? There is also a really awesome old-school Volrath the Fallen deck I see from time to time - highly recommend checking it out if you haven't already!

PAHamster, Plague Spitter seems like it might go really well here. Gloomdrifter, Plague Dogs, and Death's-Head Buzzard also might be useful if you have reiable sac outlets. I use them as dusters in my own deck :)
