Quote from Gutterstorm »Well those are definitely good colors for both +1/+1 counters and tokens. Technically you cpuld cut the blue. But why would you cut blue? Maybe change to Roon of the Hidden Realm since he can allow you to abuse all the things that make tokens or counters on etb. Of note things like Geist-Honored Monk + Cathar's Crusade(I went from Vorosh to Atraxa specifically because I wanted this card). Off the top of my head the only things I can think of that you're losing out on by not going with Atraxa is Atraxa herself, Ghave, and Corpsejack Menace. Having Blue gets you Inexorable Tide as well as the juicy interaction between your choice of Clone variant and Enduring Scalelord (throw in Concordant Crossroads for all the winning) you also gain more stability (and frugality) in your mana which is certainly worth something.
Quote from Boros_Blendo »For myself, I have a Jenara deck. I love her as a commander. With some shroud and/or totem armor, she can be biatch, too. At 3 mana she just keeps coming out all game. All personal preference, though I use her with angels, not a counter/token setup.
Quote from Gutterstorm »The thing Jenara provides that the others don't is commander damage kills. But even there I think she's probably outdone by Rafiq of the Many. But for the given theme, like I said Roon is probably the best. Derevi had her benefits in utility
Quote from ISBPathfinder »I played Jenara for years. The thing I realized with Jenara though is she needs like zero support to be good. Your deck doesnt need to have any synergy with her to make Jenara good on her own. That is part of what I loved about her so when I built her I built her in a way that the deck did its own thing and she did her own thing as well.
The hard thing about +/+ counters in my experience as a build is that its a strategy that always takes time to spin up and it falls flat kind of hard to sweepers. I think Jenara is actually a very good commander as she has great stats and abilities for her mana but I also dont think you should bother trying to make her "better" with your build. Throw in Sword of Feast and Famine and perhaps a few Time Warps and thats really as much synergy as she will ever need anyways.
