Hello hivemind,

I just opened a box of commander legends and I wanted to know if you people had any good partner combos. Thanks for your time!!

What parters did you open?

Yeah what did you open? otherwise we don't know what type of suggestions you need.

I just want general suggestions, but I cracked a Sakashima of a Thousand Faces, Livio, Oathsworn Sentinel, Kodama of the East Tree, and most of the uncommon partners except for Malcolm, Keen-Eyed Navigator and Nadier, Agent of the Duskenel. I am also looking for just fun partners that you people want to build, the partners that I cracked aren't a restriction for your responses. Thanks for your time!

I would go Sakashima of a Thousand Faces + Kodama of the East Tree cuz you can put down almost your entire hand, because they abilities don't see the otehr one.

Kodama of the East Tree + that goblin partner who makes rocks is actually a quite powerful combo, because you can dump all your lands onto the battlefield when you have both out.

I also love the idea of Sakashima + Livio, flickering copier creatures. Might not be super competitive, but seems kinda fun.

I also really love Krav, the Unredeemed and Regna, the Redeemer, a set of two “partner with” commanders.

The thumbless boi plus a blue partner (sakashima?) is also a great pairing for the Izzet coins deck, which is quite fun in its randomness.

If you find any fun pairings that don’t get mentioned here, please share them with us! There are literally thousands of these combos.

I was thinking of using livio and kodama, but I also kind of want to use sakashima or the kobold.

Meme deck: there are two damage multiplier partners in this most recent set, plus Torbran and Firey Emancipation, even giving the Kobold +1/+1 can knock out your opponents in one hit (even if it’s not your commander). The meme version is having the Kobold and one of the damage multiplier partners. The non meme would probably be a similar deck without the Kobold, and with Obosh as the commander. So, if you want a meme deck, consider multiplying the kobold’s damage!

I might go for a livio blink theme. I cn't decide between livio+sakashima or livio+kodama. Which do you peoples think is best?

VampDemigod, I love that idea! I just don't like mono-red. My friend has a torbran deck and when he slams down Mana Barbs the game turns into a total damage-fest. I'm going to ask him if he has considered using the kobold/jeska partners.

Sakashima+kobold=Kobold army. That said, I’d suggest the kodoma flicker deck.

I made the Kodama flicker deck with the cards that I have and its pretty good. I haven't done much playtesting in 4 player match ups but it seems good in 1v1. Overall, the deck doesn't have enough card draw and has a hard time functioning if the opponent keeps killing livio.

Lumbering Battlement and Fiend Hunter might be quite useful, if you don’t already have them in there.

Also, Changeling Hero, Felidar Guardian, Restoration Angel, Solemn Simulacrum, and Wall of Omens might be useful (once again, if you aren’t already running them). Sorry for all the white cards, I haven’t made a Selesnya flicker deck in awhile.

Thanks for your input! I need a solemn and a wall of omens as well as a lumbering battlement. Thanks for the suggestions and your time!

No problem!

Lumbering Battlement seems particularly useful, since it can let you drop half your hand when it’s flickered.

Sakashima and Krark. Find Krark's Thumb and copy it infinite times

November 23, 2020 9:21 a.m.

VampDemigod says... #19

Ooh! Krark’s thumb, copy it, use the spell that turns two artifacts into equipment, attach Krark’s thumbs to his body!

King_marchesa says... #20

Lol that would be such a flavor win!!!! I would do it in a second but krarks thumb is 20$ and I really don’t want to spend that much on one card. You made me laugh so hard though!

VampDemigod says... #21

Oh, I’m just riffing off of a meme that attached both the thumb and the other thumb.
