    Even if it's not attacking you get to extort, so a very versatile creature.


    But that’s still on a 6 mana creature. Lifelink, death touch, anything else to make “just extorting” a reasonable fall back. Don’t get me wrong, extort can be stupid strong, but that’s not why you play this card imo.


    Which is why I called it versatile. It yields good benefit when it attacks, and it helps out even if it doesn't attack.

    Of your choices, Triad of Fates let you make allies a lot more proactively. You could even add protection cards like 8.5 Tails to be even more political.

    Technically, anything that deals damage to each opponent would “double” under 2HG rule, and any extra turn effect would mean both you and your teammate would get a turn, so I’d go WU control (Augustin?) + a token damage deck that features Purphoros/Impact.

    The Plains and the Mountain are probably the best looking in my eyes. The sun hiding behind the structures is a gorgeous angle.

    So because GRN/RNA are happening at the same time in Fall, does that mean War of the Spark is happening during the winter?

    Winter is coming!

    Quote from OCPunisher »
    Hello friends,

    I have way too many decks with black/red/green, and not enough white/blue, and I need some help picking out an Azorius commander from the following choices:
    - Raff Capashen: Flash is the most fun keyword a card can have!
    - Dragonlord Ojutai: Hexproof and a steady source of extra draw power seem like good things for these colors.
    - Rasputin Dreameeaver: somehow I have a copy of this old and expensive card.
    - Ephara, God of the Polis: another steady source of cards, and it’s indestructible.


    I personally like Ephara's persistence, since you get to draw cards with tokens also. You can approach her with small creature route or full control while having token producers to keep up the draws. If you can produce creature at instant speed you might even get to draw during each of your opponent's turn.

    Funny that the first thing I saw was that they covered Teysa. XD

    Good decks overall. I might’ve miscounted, but Gruul has no mythical, Rakdos has four, Simic/Orzhov each has only one?

    Declare Dominance


    The flavor of this card implies that the target survives being blocked by everything, and I wonder how common that could actually be.

    There will be a 1 day hiatus tomorrow while I freeze to death in the snowy mountains.


    If it doesn't survive, it best killed everything that blocked it. XD

    Now, you see, n00bs, this is a deck where I use Akroma's Memorial. And also Repercussion and Basilisk Collar and...


    Which are all great with a Boros base. Black conveniently covers Boros' weakness of draws and recur.

    Damage per turn, no matter how small (but preferred a LOT), works really well with Rakdos, Lord of Riots, and Mogis is often included in his deck list. So yes, I think spectacle definitely has a place in EDH, especially if cards like Neheb, the Eternal exists. Remember Subversion too.

    Oros, the Avenger


    I'm happy we haven't done this one before, just so I get to type Oros, the Avenger. Of the hit and they do something dragons, I think this one suffers least or close to least from the "no, don't die from commander damage, I want to keep hitting you!" effect.


    I like Oros for being a dragon leader for a white weenie deck. A lot of times a commander fears to attack when opponent has an army, Oros would wipe them out with his hit trigger. The more players in game, the more liberal he could attack and wipe the board again. Deathtouch is a must with Oros, so is Repercussion. The more creatures your opponent has the stronger he is.

    I believe some people (like me) have issues playing hyped generals, and since many of those have one designated trick I tend to avoid them.

    Vannifar is the new hyped general of the set and I have 0 interest in building her. I find it a lot more entertaining to build Rakdos III. (Pun intended)

    Intet, the Dreamer let’s you play dragons for cheap, and blue offers tricks like clone and Polymorph.

    If you go Naya though, you gain all the protections from white. Dragonlord Dromika and her ilk has innate benefits for dragons.

    Jund is probably the most efficient with reanimation and recur.

    The cost in blue prevents people from trading things back. I love it, even if it give that person scry 1 each turn.
