And now I regret trading my Sliver Queen six months ago. Not because I wish I was still running her, and certainly not to play Slivers - merely because the price has gone insane and I could have gotten an additional $100 if I had it now.
Sisay, Weatherlight Captain
We can Tutor planeswalkers to the field now
So, I don't know if a legendary tutor in the command zone trumps every other contender, but this does feel like a first. I don't just want to cast as a back-up plan or just when things go wrong. I think this means we struck gold.
Yeah, new Sisay is a possible contender for Superfriends commander. She's a huge mana sink and card advantage engine rolled into one. It's mostly a question of whether she is win-more. Is it worth paying 2WWUBRG on an empty board to tutor up Oath of Nissa?
She's kind of hard to judge at the moment though for superfriends because yeah, her restrictions are weird. Her comeback potential though is huge, especially with the static abilities on the WAR planeswalkers. Hypothetically, depending on how we can or can't work around her tutor restrictions will determine whether she's win more or an actual Toolbox commander. A number of our planeswalkers are silver bullets. getting them at will is worth it.
We also have Sneak Attack for planeswalkers, but I'm not sure I really want that. I mean, sure, if I have Doubling Season in play and five planeswalkers in hand, and a Venser, it seems great. Or Teferi's Emblem and some spicy walker in hand during an opponent's turn. But deliberately one-shotting my walkers feels bad.
Yeah, I'm not impressed by that for tempo superfriends, which is what the majority of this thread is dedicated to tuning. Something like the combo Superfriends I'm working on with Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God or the Kenrith Siblings superfriends deck combo deck that I've seen on this board may take an interest in this. Otherwise, it runs into the same problem as Jace, Cunning Castaway outside the deck I'm working on him: it's a situational card in a tempo deck. Tempo decks want broader situations cards.

I didn't even think about lands. I run Reki, the History of Kamigawa, and he has me looking for legendary spells, but he doesn't care about land. I completely missed that this Sisay can get lands (pretty pricey land tutor, though), which is extra dumb because I use old Sisay for that in her own deck.
