Quote from Fenrir Rex »For convenience, the following are the commander-legal Oathbreakers:
Saheeli, the Gifted
Quote from TheAmericanSpirit »My bet is on Saheeli. Izzet artifacts is really easy to break in half, even with the expanded banlist.
Quote from DirkGently »Smart money would be on either Aminatou or Teferi. Aminatou because she comes down early giving you access to your spell, and has good colors. Teferi because he's already known powerful commander. Although he might lose a lot of luster without some of the fast mana that really sends him over the top.
Quote from Fenrir Rex »I can definitely see the value in these options, though the value engine offered by Daretti also seems fun. What signature's do you like for Teferi or Aminatou?
Quote from DirkGently »Quote from Fenrir Rex »I can definitely see the value in these options, though the value engine offered by Daretti also seems fun. What signature's do you like for Teferi or Aminatou?Aminatou...probably demonic tutor for blink cat? Boring but effective.
Teferi could run some version of fabricate in the same vein, to fetch his infinite combo. Not sure if that's the best use, though, it is a bit slow. Maybe transmute artifact would get there, with enough big mana rocks I think you can infinite on 6 with that bad boy. You need 6 mana (minus the cost of the sacrificed artifact) to get it into play, and then 4 left over to actually activate it (and then enough big mana rocks left that you can generate enough mana to recast teferi after he dies, which means he's untapping either 6 mana, or 5 mana with a couple extra at the start).
So for example, T2 fellwar, T3 thran dynamo into worn powerstone, T4 play teferi with 4 mana leftover, untap into 11 mana, cast transmute sacrificing the fellwar stone going to 7 mana, activate chain veil going to 3 mana, go infinite. Actually with that nutty start you could get there off fabricate, but I think transmute will get you there in situations that are a little closer, mana-wise.
Not that either of these would be my cup of tea personally, but you asked what the most powerful options are, and those are my guesses.
Quote from Fenrir Rex »Doesn't have to be the best option, if you're more into something more "fun" than I'm open to thoughts. (Gods know I'm no spike, which is part of why I'm only buying half-in on the format as it is, since it looks to be about as spiky as Commander spin-off can get.) I find it hard to believe there is much better than Demonic Tutor or The Elderspell for anyone with a black identity, unfortunately. Maybe a ramped out Torment of Hailfire or some cheaty Exhumes?
