Hello, I play lots of edh and love brewing commanders. I have a goal to brew every commander; assuming they can be built around. I like my decks to be as optimal as possible and learning about new cards and interactions is my favorite thing about this game. Mainly, because I like breaking cards. If you'd like me to look over your decks and give you some feedback just send me a message.

Thank you so much for the ideas! and sorry if this is not the right protocol to respond to a comment. i figured it would have been better to have draw advantage from monarch to cycle through my deck some what quickly but getting the equipment cost cut makes more sense. just feels cookie cutter to me i guess. like there's thousands of people with this exact deck since this is really the first time knights got any kind of love and a dedicated commander. plus im a broke ass haha, again ty so much for your recommendations! ill be saving the money for them immediately.

Enjoyed your criticism of my Eldrazi Deck, just made another if youd like to give your two cents. Thank you!

A good start but trimming some of the fat like Grotesque Mutation and Drill Bit and slotting in more rocks/tutors will make things a bit smoother. The blackhole sun list is probably the one you should try to emulate more than mine; that's the community list. Multiple minds are better than one :) best of luck with the build.

jesmister Command Tower only cares about "color identity" which isn't the same thing as the color of the creature. Morophon has a 5c identity because of its' ability.

Kitnz it was definitely up for consideration and could slot in if something under performs. Thank you for your comment and upvote :)

Not sure what budget you're trying to stay in but some good pick ups/things to trade into if given the opportunity for this deck would be

Stoneforge Mystic - grabs anything you could ever need in an equipment deck and has an ability that gets around counter magic but being unbanned in modern made this stupid expensive. Relic Seeker does an okay impression for much less though

Knight Exemplar - $13 bucks was almost bulk before this commander was spoiled but its arguably the best lord for knights

Puresteel Paladin - $17 mostly spiked because of modern cheerios builds but its basically the glue that holds most equipment decks together. Providing both card draw and utility.

Swords to Plowshares - $2.5 currently the best removal spell in white and slots into any white deck with ease

Corpse Knight - the drain is a nice way to get around a clogged board state

The tool doesnt seem too bad actually. Though there are some easy upgrades you can make to it.

Bolster your removal suit with these

Abrupt Decay

Assassin's Trophy

Hero's Downfall

Amp up your draw power with

Phyrexian Arena

Necropotence

Harvester of Souls

Thanks man! I also reccomend looking through some nekusar lists. Theres a lot of over lap but still the best method for figuring out what works is play testing.

The companions all have opturnity costs outside of eternal formats. Also, the new sets to my knowledge are tailored to standard. Expecting RnD to account for every format is absurd and would limit design space. Wizards took proper steps in dealing with the problem they created and the cat is gone. It's always the cats fault. Wizards just needs to ban all cats.

Personally, I like the mechanic. It rewards decks built on a restrictions. Very similar to highlander decks in hearthstone. Outside of the cat and kraken the rest of the companions feel fair given their restrictions. I hope wizards continues to push the envelope.

Inalla is arguably the best wizard tribal commander and has a higher power ceiling than nicol bolas; however if your mind is set on discard go with the dragon. Counterspell, Mana Drain, Narset's Reversal, Flusterstorm and Delay are a control players bread and butter. More of a balance between creatures and interaction will make a world of difference. It's a good start but could use a good fat trim.

You may want to cut Day's Undoing. The reload is nice but you will not get any snakes.

  • If any abilities trigger while players are shuffling cards into their library or drawing seven cards, those abilities cease to exist when the turn ends. They won’t be put on the stack.

I built a more top end version; it might give you some more ideas but definitely think you have a solid start.

Dramatic Reversal with Isochron Scepter is a pretty easy combo. additionally, some more rocks like Fellwar Stone and maybe Mox Opal would be easy ramp.

Just some cheap suggestions

Narset, Parter of Veils

Massacre

Chain of Vapor

So, it's a tad more competitive of a strategy but Worldgorger Dragon + Animate Dead and the ability to produce 1 of each color results in unbound activations of golos; you basically get to pick how you want to win. Though a fair warning is that it's very linear but a relatively cheap combo money wise :)

May 18, 2020 4:30 p.m.

So, one glaring thing I see that's missing is Dramatic Reversal and Isochron Scepter. Additionally, Priest of Titania may not generate blue for the activation of your commander but it's one of the best dorks ever printed and would give you easy infinite green mana with everything else you got going on here. Great start!

May 18, 2020 2:37 p.m.

Very solid deck. The only thing I can think of that'd make it better would be Buried Alive.

So, you mentioned needing help with the mana base...so, for any 5 color deck I'll recommend the rainbow lands every time. City of Brass, Mana Confluence, Tarnished Citadel and because its somewhat tribal Cavern of Souls and Unclaimed Territory - not sure if these would cover demigods but definitely gives you all the fixing for the big gods.

May 17, 2020 9:32 p.m.

I ran her for a little while it's one of those commanders I feel with a couple more cards could sit at a table with the big boys like zur and the partners and give em a run for their money. Hope you stick with it and evolve/grow the deck

May 17, 2020 8:37 p.m.

There are definitely ways to circumvent the downside like Dreadhorde Arcanist and Anarchist. Additionally, Shenanigans is a nice way to deal with pesky artifacts and fill the yard.

May 17, 2020 4:10 p.m.

No problem dude! Looking forward to seeing how this commander evolves for you
