Looking For Inspiration

Commander (EDH) forum

Posted on Sept. 19, 2021, 3:30 a.m. by Harbinger69

Hey! I'm looking for inspiration for new brews. I have a few commanders I've been interested in - feel to suggest which direction I should go with that commander, or suggest an entirely new one, I'm just looking for new ideas and fun brews.

The commanders I've been looking at are:

Sigarda, Champion of Light - Human Tribal/Coven

Halvar, God of Battle  Flip - Equipment

Neheb, the Eternal - Storm

Elenda, the Dusk Rose - Aristocrats

Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath - Graveyard/landfall

Tovolar, Dire Overlord  Flip - Werewolves

Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip - Discard/Control

Esika, God of the Tree  Flip - God tribal

Zacama, Primal Calamity - Combo?

Go wild!

There are so many humans in the game I feel if you were trying to put together something easy Sigarda, Champion of Light would be the easiest to build and likely the cheapest.

I'd stay away from Halvar, God of Battle  Flip. It's mono white

Neheb, the Eternal storm is a neat approach but there's not gonna be much fuel to keep the storm going.

Elenda, the Dusk Rose is so good now that they changed the cmdr dies rules to work with her. Aristocrats are one of te most popular archetypes for good reason. It's strong and fun and Elenda, the Dusk Rose allows you to go wide and tall and generate tons of mana with altars . This is my recommendation.

Simic landfall is always strong everyone should try a landfall deck at least once. Playing a deck that has so many layers of triggers is so much fun. However Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath isn't the best landfall cmdr.

Tovolar, Dire Overlord  Flip... this is my least favorite because it's the least diverse. Every Tovolar, Dire Overlord  Flip deck list will look the same. That will get boring fast and predictable.

Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip is surprisingly not that good. Grixis discard and control is very unfun for the table. But if that's your thing who am I to judge.

Esika, God of the Tree  Flip god is such a unique deck however it's the way everyone is building it. It just looks like so much fun. This will be the hardest one to build because of all the Mythic rares and the 5 color mana base.

I like the last one too. Zacama, Primal Calamity combo feels fun. Not much to say here.

Krark, the Thumbless + Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa as a naya token build with some enchantment support. Keep all your token makers instant/sorcery spells, and run Wheel of Sun and Moon. Every time you cast a token maker with krark out, either you get a copy of it, or it’s countered and put to the bottom of your library.

Unlife - A naya Wheel of Sun and Moon tokens deck should really use Sunforger instead of trying to get value out of Krark. Personally, I'd use a different pair, like Ardenn, Intrepid Archaeologist / Tana, the Bloodsower.

But, hey, whatever works.

I would suggest World Shaper for Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath. Instead of lands deck, you can make it into a mill deck instead. Magus of the Bazaar could also make a nice include.

I think I would more or less do the same with the commanders you have laid out so I don't have much to offer there. Instead here are some deck ideas I have planned/currently working on:
