Ok so this is my first commander deck and my first ever real attempt at an MTG deck. I'm planning for cards from Unstable since my locals is OK with some Silver-border cards as long as they don't make up the majority of the deck. All but two of the Silver-border cards are only Silver-border because they utilise either the Contraption mechanic or the Host/Augment mechanic, so I should be fine.
Playstyle has a half-hearted focus on low Power (Sidar) or low converted Mana cost (Renegade Rallier and Timely Hordemate) and on Equipments because Nahiri Lithomancer is like my favourite card for some reason.
Cards listed here I either own or plan to own one day. Cards you suggest I will attempt to get so if there are multiple cards that do the same or similar thing, suggest them all so I can be more flexible when trading. If any of the cards I'm running are generally bad/suboptimal please tell me so that I know what to take out when I get better cards. Helpful posts will get reps, and maybe points too. Thank you so much!

Only gonna suggest black-bordered cards for now, so keep that in mind.
Sidar/Silas are a commander pair I've considered, so I have some thoughts as to what to look out for. You want plenty of "saboteurs" - evasive creatures that get an effect when they deal combat damage - to maximize Sidar Kondo's abilities. Creatures with power 2 or less are always welcome as well:

  • Augury Adept
  • Baleful Strix
  • Behind the Scenes
  • Bident of Thassa
  • Bower Passage
  • Conqueror's Galleon
  • Daxos of Meletis
  • Dense Canopy
  • Derevi, Empyrial Tactician
  • Edric, Spymaster of Trest
  • Mentor of the Meek
  • Mirror Entity
  • Nature's Will
  • Nightveil Specter
  • Raving Dead
  • Reclamation Sage
  • Reveillark
  • Shadowmage Infiltrator
  • Solar Tide
  • Thada Adel, Acquisitor
  • Trygon Predator
  • Tymna the Weaver

As for Silas, you want abilities that interface with artifacts and their sacrifice:

  • Dispeller's Capsule
  • Dowsing Dagger
  • Executioner's Capsule
  • Expedition Map
  • Glaring Spotlight
  • Meekstone
  • Scrap Trawler
  • Skullclamp
  • Trading Post
  • Trinket Mage

And some generically good cards I like in this deck, maximizing your access to four colors:

  • Abzan Charm
  • Ancient Excavation
  • Finest Hour
  • Sphinx's Revelation
  • Sultai Charm
  • Supreme Verdict
  • Sylvan Reclamation
  • Tamiyo, Field Researcher

Hope these are some good ideas for you! You're welcome to post in The Command Tower if you'd like more eyes on it: I can also invite you to the YCM Magic/EDH Skype chat if you're interested.


Also, you're missing the best new un-card:

  • Very Cryptic Command


edh decks • ephara, god of the polishallar, the firefletcher • tuvasa the sunlit (wip)

decathlon challenge (1/10) • (azorius) • (dimir) • (rakdos) • (gruul) • emmara, soul of the accord • (orzhov) • (golgari) • (simic) • (izzet) • (boros)
