Jul 24, 2016Rivenor posted a message on Share Your Hidden Gems [First post contains a master list of all Hidden Gem suggestions.]Malachite Talisman is an odd little card that I have seen be pretty devastating in the right decks. When I last saw it, it was used in a green devotion deck with big mana creatures to make some pretty nutty things happen.Posted in: Commander (EDH)
Apr 19, 2016Rivenor posted a message on Share Your Hidden Gems [First post contains a master list of all Hidden Gem suggestions.]I have reviewed the OP and removed some entries that have climbed their way out of obscurity into the latest iterations of the top 50 list.Posted in: Commander (EDH)
I also added a card I found while doing research for my Gitrog deck: Terravore. The fact that it counts all lands can make it quite surprising, fetch lands are all the rage after all.

I would not consider it especially hidden considering it was in at the premade commander decks (both 2015 and 2014).
Necrologia is my submission for today. A lesser known card draw for black that is rather restrictive but handy if you just emptied your hand anyway or if you have a Spellbook effect in play to keep whatever you draw.

It is most likely because of the time of release rule that is on this topic. It was cutting off at Theros until very recently. Also Gray merchant is on the Top 50 lists which is another reason it did not make it to the list here.
I am really surprised this isnt on the top 50 lists. Though honestly artifacts are hot competition for spots on there.
Jan 26, 2016Updated the main list with all these great additions. Thanks for the merge mods! Gave me a nice surprise when I checked up on the thread.Posted in: Commander (EDH)
Dec 29, 2015Finally compiled a much needed update to the main post. Thank you all for your great contributions in the last year!Posted in: Commander (EDH)
NOTE: I updated the main post's cut off time to Khans as it was still showing Theros.
Oct 26, 2015Assault strobe / Temur Battle Rage could be pretty decent even without any boosting to your tokens.Posted in: 1 vs 1 Commander
Brute Force / Seething Anger can be nice as well.
Screaming Fury as a blow out card.
Sure Strike / Slaughter Cry/Fit of rage are boosters with the nice bonus of First Strike.
Titan's Strength yet another boosting spell but with Scry tied in.
Commando Raid and Tail Slash can wipe a decent amount of creatures without harming yours, especially potent with the above boosting spells.
I also found Forge Armor which can make for a nice permanent boost to your tokens depending on what you sacrifice.
From looking into this Zada could make a fun budget commander as well since these are mostly commons.
May 16, 2015My hidden gem for today is No Rest for the Wicked. I was actually a bit surprised it had not been mentioned sooner, its a fantastic card to play around in sacrifice decks like Jund.Posted in: Commander (EDH)
May 9, 2015Just as a head's up. I won't be putting Life's Legacy up on the list since its so recent anyway.Posted in: Commander (EDH)
Mar 12, 2015Giving the topic a bit of a bump with a hidden gem I have been using lately for my Scion of Ur-dragon deck:Posted in: Commander (EDH)
A classic card forgotten by most players. Reito Lantern is more versatile but its never a bad idea to have a bit of redundancy in EDH.
Feb 26, 2015I have been testing out a similar deck since Fate Reforged came out, here are a few cards you may want to consider (Suggesting only the budget friendly ones as I noticed your update about that):Posted in: Multiplayer Commander Decklists
- Belbe's Portal: A colorless and relatively cheap way to cheat dragons into play.
- Elvish Piper: Like the above but not colorless.
- Reito Lantern / Soldevi Digger: Use these as a way of putting the better dragons from the grave back into your deck for more uses with Scion.
- Vorosh, the Hunter: I would suggest this guy over Kilnmouth Dragon. You can use it very effectively with Scion if you can get an attack on a player to go unblocked, pay 2 to make scion into this guy then pay 3 to get the counters quickly and easily. Use with Reito lantern/Soldevi digger as above to rinse and repeat for fast GD deaths.
- Patriarch's Bidding: An absolute must for this deck. Very few revived types can stand up to an army of dragons.
Note: The Kamigawa dragons can be interesting when your general is about to be killed, you can quickly switch it to Yosei, the morning star for example and apply that effect as a surprise. You would have to let Scion hit the graveyard though so should only be applied if you have some revival handy or Gift of Immortality on it.
Jan 19, 2015There is a bit of an issue with Pyramids and that is the oracle text which reads:Posted in: Commander (EDH)
2: Choose one - Destroy target Aura attached to a land; or the next time target land would be destroyed this turn, remove all damage marked on it instead.
So essentially it may save your man lands but it will not save them from strip mine and the likes. I am unsure why they changed it to be honest as it is not overly powerful in its original wording.
Jan 6, 2015That's is an interesting card actually. Particularly with what has been shown of the next set. Nice find Weebo!Posted in: Commander (EDH)
Dec 29, 2014Added a couple of cards to the list. I could've sworn we already had these but it seems not. Compulsion and Call the Skybreaker.Posted in: Commander (EDH)
Compulsion is a great graveyard dumping card that I used extensively in my Bruna deck. Call of the Skybreaker of course can give a bit more beatdown to an otherwise spellslinger deck. It also gives you nice options to replace your land draws later in the game.
Dec 15, 2014Rivenor posted a message on [The Spirit of EDH]: Our Decks are Bigger Than YoursI have been away from the forums for ages, just been maintaining the hidden gems thread mostly.Posted in: Retired Clan Threads
EDH-wise im planning a deck for Yasova Dragonclaw, its been a while since I have worked on a Voltron style deck.
What have you guys been up too?
