And deck looks good for a start. Considered Sidar Kondo at all in the 99? Or Opal-Eye?


I'm not a fan of Kondo and I'm playing Levitation over him currently. I trade dying to less stuff for not giving random utility creatures my opponents have fake flying. I prefer Levitation honestly, and I'm not even sure how good that is. Opal-Eye is an interesting though I'm not sure how useful it is. The body is pretty mediocre vs. other stuff I could play and stopping damage once or twice isn't going to accomplish much I don't think.

I used a hypergeometric calculator, and with the amount of lands I have in my deck, it's about only a 11% chance to whiff. So I think I'll be fine.

the fact that wood elves can grab stomping ground/cinder glade/whatever they named the RG cycle land gives it a ton of utility, and with the former 2 they can come in untapped, accelerating early game and making up for lost tempo later.

Now, I admittedly don't know your list, so you might already have wood elves, but if not, the card is dirt cheap, man.

It's also that I just have an absurd compulsion to try new cards over old, lol.

 

Wood Elves will probably stay in in the long run, tbh. Just want to test this out.

Commander 2018 is here! That said, it's time for my perennial question: what do y'all plan on adding?

 

Ephara: Loyal Drake.

 

Hallar: Forge of Heroes; Fury Storm; Loyal Guardian.

 

Regna/Krav: Loyal Unicorn; Night Incarnate.

 

Tuvasa (new deck!): Just the precon to begin with.

 

Longterm holds and considerations: Aminatou, the Fateshifter; Endless Atlas; Gyrus, the Corpse Waker; Isolated Watchtower; Treasure Nabber; Varina, Lich Queen; Windgrace's Judgment.

 

Overall, my thoughts are mixed on the new decks. The power level seems to have taken a nosedive compared to previous years: there aren't any really exciting reprints, and the new cards are cool but they all fill rather specific niches. Tuvasa is the one commander I'm excited to build immediately, but that's because a. I love merfolk, and b. I've wanted a Bantchantress commander since almost literally forever. Were I to build another from the set, it'd probably be Izzet artifacts, but I can't decide between one of Saheeli/Tawnos/Jhoira.

I actually really love almost all the new commander options we got from 2018. The only one I can't see doing something cool is the Spider, and even then I've seen people that like it. I'm not sure how the power level of the decks themselves compare to past commander decks, but the reprints were certainly a let down.

As for new cards.

Karador: Night Incarnate

Animar: Whiptongue Hydra and Arixmethes and Slumbering Isle

Freyalise: Forge of Heroes

Hanna: Estrid's Invocation

Kemba: Heavenly Blademaster and Endless Atlas

Kozilek: Ancient Stone Idol and Geode Golem

Talrand: Endless Atlas

Pross: Nesting Dragon

Edger: Bloodtracker

Yadda yadda, you know what's coming. Guilds of Ravnica updates, ahoy!
 

Ephara:

  • Dream Eater

Hallar:

  • Beast Whisperer
  • Risk Factor
  • Gravitic Punch

Tuvasa:

  • Conclave Tribunal
  • Sumala Woodshaper
  • Temple Garden (only for the new art)

Sidisi:

  • Assassin's Trophy
  • Discovery // Dispersal
  • Doom Whisperer
  • Find // Finality
  • Izoni, Thousand-Eyed
  • Mausoleum Secrets
  • Plaguecrafter
  • Underrealm Lich

Toolbox:

  • Other shocklands and Chromatic Lantern
  • Mission Briefing
  • Niv-Mizzet, Parun
  • Thousand-Year Storm
  • Expansion // Explosion
  • Invert // Invent

Overall: not a ton of cards that slot into my existing decks, but Im really tempted to now make an Izzet spellslinger deck with the new Niv-Mizzet, and maybe a Muldrotha deck to abuse all those new Golgari and Dimir graveyard payoffs. Too bad jump-start ended up being really anemic, though: hardly any cards printed with the mechanic, and only 1-2 of them look remotely playable.

The more I think about it the more I'm like, man I'd LOVE to build a Muldrotha deck. But I already have Karador and the two decks would be WAY to similar. Not helped that it would also run into a number of common points with Sedris too. Anyway, figured out what cards interest me for my various commander decks.

Karador: Doom Whisperer; Mausoleum Secrets; Assassin's Trophy; Underrealm Lich; Vraska, Golgari Queen

Animar: Dream Eater; Beast Whisper

Sedris: Dream Eater; Doom Whisperer; Mausoleum Secrets; Niv-Mizzet, Parun

Rith: Divine Visitation; Camaraderie; March of the Multitudes

Sharuum: Dream Eater; Doom Whisperer

Freyalise: Beast Whisperer

Grenzo: Legion Warboss

Iroas: Chance for Glory; Response // Resurgence

Sliver Overlord: Assassin's Trophy

Ezuri: Beast Whisperer

Gitrog: Doom Whisperer; Assassin's Trophy; Underrealm Lich; Vraska, Golgari Queen

Kemba: Divine Visitation

Sidisi: Midnight Reaper

Talrand: Mission Briefing

Prossh: Assassin's Trophy; Vraska, Golgari Queen

Arcades: Portcullis Vine

Nothing

Hanna
Kozilek
Phenax
Atraxa
Sigarada
Wort
Edgar

Biggest winners were the graveyard decks. Kind of surprised so many decks got nothing though, especially since two of them are in supported guilds.
