...& by that, I mean an underrated commander that can hold their own in some way possible...

I was thinking of doing 1 of 3 of the following...

1: (Apparently there are little good for Mono- in minority standards.

2: Xantcha, Sleeper Agent forced politics.

3: Wait until my other decks are complete.

4: Be Arcana Tarot 0, & get back to (I'll wait for GRN.).

5: An ULTRA-CUTTHROAT Mayael the Anima Deck that cheats so much into play to the point of lockdown.

I'd like your thoughts on this, as I wanted to do something different from all others while breaking out of the crowd. Please make your descision, everyone...

I'm just wondering what your thoughts are about this...

  1. Even after both ixalan sets, there are still not enough pirates that good enough in EDH to make a deck.

  2. Kaho, Minamo Historian is an interesting one for that angle.

  3. Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign and Arixmethes, Slumbering Isle are the two spiciest commanders from C18.

  4. Yes, do that.

  5. Or that.

@Boza: Well I was trying to make a consistent Pirate Tribal in a way that it just might work. Since this is an impossibility still, I'll remove the choice.

In addition, I was referring to Mono- as in a commander w/o a Wizard element, nor utilizing Instants/Sorceries. Kaho, Minamo Historian might as well hit the bench until further notice.

Those two sound epic; having a Odd Mana Cost Only deck seems great to avoid stuff like Void Winnower. The latter just makes me wonder how to remove counters to have a Turn 4 or earlier 12/12. There is just one problem; I kind of wanted a more underrated choice not a lot of players would want to use...

Actually, I'll see what I can do w/ the others first...

...Even though stuff like Kismet is in cEDH Boros Secret Tech... XP

I'll update the OP in case the staff still cares...

Well, my Superfriends deck is one card away from being "Complete" (There are still more walkers ahead though...). That said, I'm still waiting for an idea. The New Aurelia looks like crap though... Far inferior to her GATECRASH origin...

So... Does anyone have any suggestions? I already Locked Down 3 good ones, shamefully...

UPDATE: Added another choice. I hope this is a better idea, but I still want your thoughts on any of these options...

1/ Mono U artifacts with Muzzio, Visionary Architect or big dudes with Lorthos, the Tidemaker?

2/ Gyrus, Waker of Corpses reanimator?

3/ Good idea.

4/ wait till GRN is fully spoiled.

5/ Mayel and ultra cutthroat does not seem right.

Build Xantcha, Sleeper Agent politics!!

Rejected the Mono-U idea. I'd have to cheat huge Artifice to play. Lorthos doesn't seem promising either. Xantcha sounds epic. My other decks are also almost done. Hopefully Boros Redeems after GRN. & I'm keeping the option of Mayael anyway as it seems nuts...

...In a great way. Xp

UPDATE: I may be psychotic as of now, but I've made my decision. I'll reveal when both my current decks are evened up at 100. Though the answer might be too obvious... Thanks for the help, though I don't think much of it helped, & I apologize for this... Thanks still, though.

Update, Both my decks are at 100. I'm now revealing that my next project is...

Mayael the Anima.

Lots of Fat, each w/ a consistent use. & yes, even stuff w/ 4 Power can be used as support. What do you think of this option?
