Are there any Commanders you'd love to partner together, if you could?

Commander (EDH) forum

Not the "Partner" mechanic, but the "Partners With" that we saw in Battlebond and again in Ikoria.

I was constructing a deck and found a beautiful synergy between Wulfgar of Icewind Dale and Lovisa Coldeyes. While Lovisa may not have an attack trigger off Wulfgar, Wulfgar does get her +2/+2 anthem. With an attack at each opponent, he would become a 9/9 which is absolutely brutal, especially being a Commander.

...WAIT DOES MELEE TRIGGER TWICE?? IS HE A 12/12??!

It's not the biggest synergy, nor the best, but I have wanted to run Coldeyes in a deck for years now and, happily, I finally can :)

That's why I'm asking :3

I would love to have odric lunarch martial and akroma Vision of ixidor together, that would dominate.

Wendithewendigo, disgusting. But what about Zetalpa, Primal Dawn?

I'll have to upload my odric deck, I used to have zetalpa in there but I took him out when I decided to go angel/human tribal. My akroma's both becamey new game winners

I want to partner Karazikar, the Eye Tyrant with Marisi, Breaker of the Coil for the king of all goad and forced combat decks.

Nin, the Pain Artist and Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder would probably make my Torture! deck perfectly flavored. The mechanics would work okay together... but the FLAVOR chefs_kiss.gif Circu, Dimir Lobotomist is a close second... but I really dig Endrek’s mechanic.

If I could, I would partner Tinybones, Trinket Thief with Tourach, Dread Cantor…but my friends would probably stop talking to me hehe

Gyome, Master Chef and Asmoranomardicadaistinaculdacar I love both of their abilities so sadly had to settle with Korvold, Fae-Cursed King leading the helm for a jund deck.

I feel this is a good time to plug my new Commander Variant, and offer some of my favs from that:

Commander Variant: Unlikely Alliances

Some of my favorite unlikely alliances include:

Kaalia of the Vast and Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund dragon tribal

Rafiq of the Many and Uril, the Miststalker enchantress

Omnath, Locus of the Roil and Yarok, the Desecrated elemental tribal

Delina, Wild Mage and Wulfgar of Icewind Dale combat trigger bonanza

Honestly, now that I look at it, Wulfgar of Icewind Dale and Adriana, Captain of the Guard would make an amazing Naya pairing.

I thought that Kami of the Crescent Moon and Seizan, Perverter of Truth would be such a cool pair. It would be an interesting alternative to Nekusar, the Mindrazer

Peoyogon: You, I like you! Up to this point, you've won this threadd.


Toshiro Umezawa and Feather, the Redeemed would be pretty awesome. Also, do Moraug, Fury of Akoum and Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma count? I just can't help the timmyness ;)

seshiro_of_the_orochi My unlikely alliance of choice with Moraug would definitely be Mina and Denn, Wildborn- Mina and Denn basically guarantee you'll get at least two landfall triggers every turn, and give your stuff evasion, imagine this bizarre voltron/landfall strat.

seshiro_of_the_orochi I was thinking Toshiro Umezawa and Horobi, Death's Wail were made for each other tho I dont think it is a deck people would have fun playing against.

On a similar note Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire and Tergrid, God of Fright  Flip would also go quite well together.

There are a bunch that I feel like would be fun, though possibly busted, together.

Two big pairings for me, Zedruu the Greathearted with Blim, Comedic Genius and Lonis, Cryptozoologist with Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer

Also just in general my playgroup has been floating the idea that you can pair up two legends that don't have partner, BUT they have to actually be connected by lore. So pairings like Ixidor, Reality Sculptor and any of the Akromas. Ghoulcaller Gisa and Stitcher Geralf, Karlov of the Ghost Council with any version of Teysa. The legends might pull your decks into different directions, but could make for interesting deckbuilding as you try to make them work together.
