That doesn't seem like a terrible rate, 4 mana for an almost Sleep... oh wait.
Quote from Umbro »Literally just started getting into commander from competetive legacy and kitchen vintage, I never liked commander as a format to begin with but had a bunch of friends so I thought why not just one deck. I recently just Finished an All ANGEL deck and one of the cards that inspired me was iona. The deck is casual because everything is high cmc and i usually dont win much, if at all with the deck. Iona made it possible to stay in those games. Now im thinking I'll just ditch commander because frankly it inst a fun format for me. I have more fun in competitive legacy and casual 60 card kitchen table magic. I gave commander several shots and its just not a good format or fun. I have people with "casual" decks kill me on turn 3 and 4, or basically aggro me down with infect on t4. Id rather have a chance on equal ground with my 60 card decks. Why am I making this post? Giving you insight from someone who tried to have fun in commander. Two cents.
