Quote from LouCypher »I'm a bit biased, but I do prefer Tariel as a commander for this kind of deck. Even if you only grab small utility dudes, they still provide you with some extra fuel. But that's just the commander.
I'd personally always run a Bitterblossom/Assemble The Legion + Grave pact effects combination in Mardu attrition-based builds. Those tokens + Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobyte also give you another route to victory, one that served my Tariel quite well, and is supplemented beautifully by Grave Titan. Just my $0.02
Quote from Hunding Gjornersen »I think running some guildgates and refuges in the mana base would be better than Manaforge Cinder as a filter. There are, of course, larger-budget options for fixing colors as well.
