Quote from Zervintz »Very cool list. In my opinion the ideal commander for Rebels would be because of a few key cards such as Training Grounds (amazing with rebels), Big Game Hunter (cool to have in the toolbox) and the cool interactions of Amoeboid Changeling + Rebel Informer or Shapesharer.
I used to run an Esper list with those cards in my playgroup (60 cards deck, non commander multiplayer) and it was a blast. Blue also adds counterspells to the mix, which is nice against combo. I'm currently toying with the possibility of an Esper Rebel deck for commander with either Oloro or Ertai as a commander...
Lin Sivvi being monowhite cuts a few of those options, but it's also really neat because you're guaranteed to have her every game, which is amazingly useful to get the tutor engine started. The problem I had with the two commanders I previously mentioned is that I would depend a lot on my draws to get the engine started. Of course I'd only need 1 rebel to start it, but still.
Anyway, super cool list and I always love seeing mono-white or mono-red decks. Well done!
Thanks I know a few people have delved into the BW versions in the past. I at one point looked at Gaddock Teeg as a rebel build for the anti wrathing as well as Skyshroud Poacher for an elf tie in. I am a sucker for mono colored decks especially white ones as I really like feeling the color identity of mono color. There is also potentially the value of having a lower profile with less colors in a deck.
