    Ladies and genltlemen another forever staple in edh revealed by accident

    Unclaimed Territory
    Hardly a staple. Cavern of Souls can be put into literally any Commander deck and at the very least reads "your commander is uncounterable". Unclaimed Territory needs more tribal density in the deck to be playable.

    hostage taker is better for that
    I'd put odds close to 100% that there's a wording change from what we've seen, day 0 errata, or some sort of rules change related to Hostage Taker by the time the set drops. There's no way WotC wants a 1-card instant draw on an empty board in their current set.

    You never know. Maybe an overlooked mistake
    Yeah, and an overlooked mistake is how you get day-0 errata, like on Darksteel Mutation and Marath, Will of the Wild. Note that Darksteel Mutation's Oracle text also says the enchanted creature loses other card types and creature types (because turning something into an artifact creature is a special exception to changing a card's type), and Marath's Oracle text won't let you choose X=0 for his abilities (because otherwise "pay 0, remove 0 +1/+1 counters from Marath, make a 0/0 token, it dies" instantly goes infinite with any dies or ETB trigger effect).

    Well hopefullu tbey just change it to may exile instead of exile another...

    Would be nice to still have the 1 card infinite with vela.

    I do not see many decks really going out of their way to play it with something like aura shards.

    Grixis may use it in combo with purphy.

    By the way, I can totally relate with Gashnaw.
    My friend hates plansewalkers and i want to build an all-planeswalker deck to annoy him.

    I know players like tbat (who hate PWs)

    I play superfriends. They bate it. (Not just because they hate pw but also because they have a lot of creature removal but no way to deal wkth pws aside from attacking.

    Or Repercussion for that matter.

    Having seen the dino legend I'm really hoping we get some good support. From the rares spoiled thus far most of the dinosaurs are curve toppers so it could be viable but im hoping for some more good ones at the common/ uncommon rarity.

    Lots to think about but I can already see many interesting cards from the set that I expect to see popping up in games.
    at least dinos are in naya and not 5 color

    Quote from Dunharrow »
    Funny, I was thinking about using this to ramp like crazy in a token deck.

    In a lot of EDH decks, people won't have enough basics to search out.

    Oh, this is tutorable with Sunforger. Does it replace Comeuppance?

    ramping is one strat. But as you said most edh decks dont have that mana basics. Use it to mass exile an attack. Fog effects ftw.

    I see OP sitting at a table alone because no one wants to play with him and his troll-y deck.
    That being said I did just finish my new deck where 30+% of non-land cards are some sort of counterspell.

    Sound like my old Azami eck, I had like 20 wizards, Win combo (maybe 10 card were focused on win conditions), Lands and counterspells.

    It must be possible to do something nasty with Aegriah's Marauders...but what? Hmm...not now Heartless Hidetsugu, I'm thinking...

    Why is Heartless Hidetsugu not a more common general? He is dangerously good. Red has so many ways to get haste along with ANGER
    EDIT: misrea, i thought it said opponent not player. Not so good after all.

    I am actually looking forward to Hostage Taker built in infinite combo for Vela.

    posted a message on 5 color eldrazi.
    Quote from Fenrir Rex »
    There aren't really any 5c commanders that synergize with the eldrazi directly, so your best bet is just run plenty of ramp and a commander that ives you some kind of additional advantage on top of your monstrous eldrazi and presumptive devoid/ingest shenanigans.

    Child of Alara gives you a wrath in the command zone and is suitably creepy looking if you want some eldritch horror with your Eldrazi.

    Progenitus is the flagship big dumb beater apart from the Eldrazi themselves and is another payoff for ramping.

    Cromat is a boring swiss army knife, but could work. Not high on my list as the Eldrazi don't often want you leaving mana open.

    The new non-tribal dragon commanders probably have the best value for you, Ramos, Dragon Engine ramps you up to Kozilek or Ulamog 2.0 mana and O-Kagachi, Vengeful Kami helps protect you while packing some ulamogesque removal in the command zone. Karona, False God is your only real option if you want to go pure tribal, but with the tribal commander decks dropping her drawback is a real thing.

    I was thinkin cromat but you do have a point.
    Ramo would be a poor decision as even if I do run some colored eldrazi, it would not be enough to ramp ramos up to WWUUBBRRGG

    posted a message on 5 color eldrazi.
    I have been wanting to build eldrazi tribal for a while. Sadly with card like eldrazi displacer being my favorite wbite card in tha game (and second favorite drazi with ulamog being my favorite) i have bèen trying to think of a general. I would like to just run kozilek but he does noy allow access to the colored eldrazi (like displacer)

    destructive flow to punish nonbasics
    manabarbs to punish players tapping lands
    personal sanctuary to negate the last card
    phyrexian tyranny to punish players for drawing cards
    eon hub to avoid paying for your cumulative upkeep on naked singularity

    so i should be checking into four or five color.
    Solemnity would also help Naked Singularity.
