Princess Twilight Sparkle

Commander Deck Help forum

Now that all of the ponies are out, ( at least the ones to complete the wincon,and honestly I can see them coming out with Trixie, celestia, sunset, spike, the villains, and starlight and maybe a few background guys someday in the future) What does this deck need?

I already plan on filling it with the best horses and unicorns in the game I can get. Maybe some cheap tutors or an expensive one or two if I have one of them free. It would be five color, but, what should I focus on as a strategem? I don't wanna make my whole deck just trying to protect the main character and then enter the wincon on the commander.

Should I make this maybe tokens? Should it be some kind of group hug? If group hug, what five color group hug cards are an auto include?

Do you have a reliable source of toys for Rarity and Applejack?

Outside of the MLP cards, Unicorns kind of have a +1/+1 counter theme with Emiel the Blessed, Lathiel, the Bounteous Dawn, and Good-Fortune Unicorn. Lathiel and Celestial Unicorn tie that to life gain, with Splendor Mare and Brightmare offering further options there. There's also a little bit of ETB that Emiel can set up.

Horses don't have much of a unified theme or depth. Pick from these as needed, I guess.

Adding in Pegasi, they all have flying to help Rainbow Dash, but that's about it. Park Heights Pegasus plays well with Emiel.

The creature base looks very -heavy, with in second. There's not a ton of independent token depth. Group hug would be very on-theme, but my crippling lack of knowledge about the franchise prevents me from offering any thematic suggestions. Legendary creatures matter could work here. Do you want to get Princess Twilight Sparkle out every game, or just use her as support when needed?

Shapeshifters/Changelings are totally a viable option to supplement any Typal deck including horses and the like(Also I think Changelings are actually a thing in the series? Idk) I also dig the group hug idea for what you're building but I don't play much group hug. I'm more of a pay your taxes guy. Be careful with group hugs cards because in group commander games you are typically giving out more value than you are getting. I.E Everyone draws a card give 3 other players a card for the price of your single card.

Bill Ferny, Bree Swindler might have some use here if you just wanna be silly and give your Ponies/horses to other players. You could play cards to get them back too i.e cards with Target player gains control of all permanents they own.

Morophon, the Boundless might be fun

here's a link to a list cards to look at that kind of fit the theme you are looking for.
