No worries! I always appreciate detailed primers & the list itself looks like a lot of fun.

Advisor I have that card in my binder and have often thought about putting it in. Do you find it slows down your opponents a lot?

I do think Esper Sentinel is moving in the right direction, we just need more of this type of effect, and it already needs to be reprinted because like anything that draws cards in white, it is pricey in real-world money. When I spend money on my decks, it never feels good to do it on ramp and draw, those should be the cheap cards so that we can spend money on fun ones! I do think taxing card draw is a great way to go for white though. Taxes has always been true to color, and Rhystic Study is really off-color by today's standards.

Gidgetimer is correct. The rules of commander make it pretty hard to abuse stuff like this. The only reliable ways to get there commander and keep them from re-playing it are simply stealing it with Control Magic type effects, or to just destroy it enough to up the tax on it so it isn't desirable to recast. You can also turn it into a land with Imprisoned in the Moon or Song of the Dryads , which they can really only beat with enchantment removal or land destruction. Anything that will exile, destroy, or discard will always allow them to safely put it in the command zone away from your meddling.

DankMagicianD I agree! When Inalla was first spoiled the cEDH community knew right away that she was great in that format, but there was less focus on her ability to function as a powerhouse tribal and combo commander at the top end of regular commander without resorting to reanimator shenanigans. Its very powerful, so after winning with it I always switch to a less combo-oriented deck for the following game, but its always fun and presents lots of options.
3n3rgy2 Thanks so much for your comments and I hope that you enjoy making it! It makes all of the primer writing worth it for sure. What I love most is its perfect synergy. It has many combos, but every piece is good on its own, which makes our cards always useful and makes us willing to lose a combo piece since there are always more paths to win. Thanks again!
