The Dos and Don'ts of Silver-Border Commander

    Command Beacon to get it into your hands, and BG is the best to tutor the Beacon.

    Can’t you exile it, and then it goes to the general zone instead? Or does doing that negate Iname’s ability?

    Anyway, it seems like more hoops to jump through than it is worth.

    NICE.

    Are there good combos with this cycle at least? I didn’t think so...they just seem like beaters that need some help to get there.

    Hapatra only gets one snake out of Noxious, the GB one. Eh.

    Overwhelming Splendor always seemed like more of an Academy Rector trick. Do you hard-cast it often?

    Do you get a lot of use from Second Sunrise?

    We were so spoiled by the spoiled cards from the last set!

    ...unless you want to dump cards into your GY...which is not uncommon in EDH.

    Whoa, is this a Dash superstar? There are a few of these random red enchantments that maybe want to help with immediate combat...but I rarely see any make the cut.

    Lignify and Song of the Dryads stop them and are auras. Journey and Oring work, too.

    No combo ideas from me, but I love multi-color identity cards like these. The Yasova khans cycle and the mythic rares from that set (like Shaman of the Great Hunt) are just neat cards in my mind.

    Marath and Hazezon are both Naya options. Red gives you Purphoros/Warstorm Surge/Pandemonium and more access to haste.

    I’ve considered Kaseto, Lovisa, and Radiant decks, which would use the U, R, and W myriad critters, respectively.

    I never built those decks.

    Using BB as a Mana Geyser substitute for infinite mana combos? It costs more...and requires way more lands...but does generate infinite artifacts?

    Oh, man, I hope there are bounty cards for each tribe/color. Like when they had the expertise cycle!

    Nykthos
    Seat of the Synod (Trinket Mage target)
    Fetches + Crucible
    Search for Azcanta (becomes a land)
    Expedition Map (for Nykthos)
    Wayfarer’s Bauble
    Scrying Sheets

    Not all ramp, but some either help you hit land drops or interact with other aspects of your deck.

    Since those decks have access to white, you have two stellar options for single target removal instead...that exile at a cheaper cost and instant speed.

    Repercussion shenanigans? It’s not a good card.


    This kind of thought is what Stifles creativity and makes Commander stagnant. By your logic here, why play anything else other than Path to Exile or Swords to Plowshares? Let's make every deck exactly the same. When I see a card like this, I see a lot of potential other than a card like Swords to Plowshares that plays the game for you. Pay one white to exile, real challenging. Takes alot of deck design and decision making out of the game and makes your personal touches on your deck blandy bland bland. I feel like alot of people are missing the point of Commander when they look at everything in the strictly better sense. If everyone did strictly better, every deck would be exactly the same. No thanks.


    Ha! Actually, I run neither card in any deck. I’d prefer more popular cards like them are banned, so people have to find other options. Everything in those top 50 lists? Ban ‘em!

    I use Dispatch in artifact builds.

    But this card is trash.

    Not a huge fan of cards that are aware you're playing EDH. I do not think you should benefit from your general...without playing your general. Also don't think you should be able to turn a negative (general tax) to your advantage.

    I would like to see more partners in future sets. Adding mono- and tri-colored partners will allow players to make whatever colors decks they want. (I'd also think/hope a mono-green enchantress partner would solve everyone's enchantress gripes.)

    That last one is Vanguard.
