I play EDH, I prefer to run Mardu colors always. No opinion is greater than another, but they're always worth discussion like they are.

Debt to the Deathless. Most cards from Seb probably work, but this was my favorite card when I first started playing, so I’m ranking it above the rest.

I came across the Rule 0 format recently and its interested me a lot recently. My favorite card in the game is Evershrike and I've always wanted to build a deck with it as my commander. The problem is I used to run Evershrike a ton in my single-player 60 card deck, and the color red was always present in making that particular deck shine. Evershrike doesn't have red in its color identity, but I heard rule 0 can allow the pairing of two commanders even if neither has the Partner keyword. I'd like to build a two partner commander rule 0 deck with one commander being Evershrike and the other being some card that splashes in Red and no other color.

Most importantly, I know two-commander decks can be pretty strong and I want this deck to revolve only around Evershrike with the red commander serving an incredibly minimal role. I could make it something inconsequential as a Dwarven Trader to pair it with, but I feel like most players would find that distasteful and/or lacking any meaningful relevance with the other commander to be worth justifying this two partner pairing. So I'm looking for a second commander with red in the identity that is too weak by itself to be to push the power level of Evershrike but synergistic enough with Evershrike to be considered worthwhile as a pairing. I guess that sounds paradoxical, so let me provide an example:

Evershrike + Smokebraider - I wouldn't plan on running any elementals in the deck, so Smokebraider's only use would be for casting Evershrike. It should also be noted that the mana Smokebraider creates can't be used on elemental abilities outside of the battlefield accroding to its rulings on gatherer, so it only has merits in casting Evershrike from the command zone. Essentially the Smokebraider plays a tiny role, but it still has some kind of synergy with Evershrike to justify its inclusion while also providing the red splash.

I'm wanting to know if there are other red cards I could use to partner with Evershrike instead of Smokebraider that sort of has the same level of underperformance and synergy.
