Torgaar, Famine Incarnate is the commander for my mono-black natural disaster deck and he’s is a ton of fun. While he’s mostly just chunky, with a nice angle to counter commander tax, his life total manipulation is great... especially after you pestilence yourself almost to death ;p

legendofa I have a STACK of plant cards set aside waiting for this very commander and I can’t believe I forgot plants in this. Thank you!! (Side note: I love wall of kelp and I’m never taking it out of The Briny Deep)

I’d also love to see a legendary fish for my Briny Deep deck. The ocean, as a uniform entity, is such a powerful thing I’d like it to get a representation that isn’t a kraken. It would also be enjoyable to have one of the ocean-themed spells not be limited to kraken/serpents... the humble denizens of the sea need love too ;p

I’d love an old-school Sarpadian thrull wizard. Endrik is cool, and there were technically thrulls in Ravnica, but (if I remember right) one of the thrull wizards that was made to help with rituals and whatnot led the thrull revolt. A black thrull wizard commander could be cool.

While it’s a pretty well-documented fact that I’m not a fan of planeswalker cards, I absolutely love this deck.

I’ve really enjoyed the trap-door-spider-aspect of Whipkeeper in my torture deck. Being able to double-up on combat damage with a below-the-radar sleeper card like that is a lot of fun. No one pays much attention to it (or recognizes it, honestly) until it swoops at an opportune time...which then, sadly, draws it a lot of hate. Pairs well with Nin, the Pain Artist (unless you’re torturing your own creatures) or any other mana-reliant damage. Also hits the bullseye on theme.

One of the first decks I made, after getting into commander, was The Briny Deep. One of my favorite aspects of having these theme decks is perusing the spoilers as they come out looking for an ocean card (or torture, or haunted house, or natural disaster, etc). The ocean themes are often delightful; Encrust , Crush of Tentacles , and Giant Oyster are straightforward enough... but the powerful push and pull of Breaking Wave takes it up to eleven for me. What a fun color and theme!

I really like this track. The beginning caught me a little off guard, expecting a different tempo at first blush, but then it downshifted into a slow & steady ride. This is really good, smackjack.

TheMeadiator I went to look at my The Briny Deep deck to make sure before I answered. I don’t have any folders, though, so it’s possible that your own organization methods are trumping those of other users. Having said that, though, I expect it’s more likely that someone simply hasn’t added the deck in question to a folder (mostly because it would probably be more difficult to program the site to show some folders but not others).

With all the people who keep storm and cascade and menace and intimidate organized in their brain, I’m confident they can get the hang of banding ;p

I believe you can see this if you scroll all the way to the bottom of your deck’s page, stopping just short of the “Similar Decks” spot.

Please replace “potential upgrades” with “themely upgrades.” My autocorrect replaced it with gibberish and when I fixed it I had forgotten what I was talking about...seems to happen more often these days...

This looks like a BLAST. I checked my Briny Deep deck for potential upgrades but I think you’re well ahead of my ocean deck ;p The one possible spell that could be fun, just because it’s always fun, is Breaking Wave which could bet your blocker back while stalling out at least one opponent. Congrats on a keeper!

My favorite (and only) mono-white Commander is General Jarkeld in my banding deck. The deck is a ton of fun, but of course it’s not super-effective in a four player game...ooooor most other games. But if banding comes back, I’m all set! ;p Banding of Brothers
