Mtg is one of the best games available for the specific reason that they cant change what you already have.
Once you have the cards in your hands, that's it. They cant take the experience from you.
They cant patch it forcing you to play a certain way, hell you could play companion the exact way it was released if you chose.
They cant take your cards because they find them racist 20 years later, they cant nerf or buff your deck, they cant make you buy dlcs to play with new people.

Black and blue have plenty of removal supieor to whites and green doesn’t even care anymore about what your board state is vs theirs, they can still overrun over.
>>
>>76070946
Yeah, they're not winning the game right out the gate. You've given yourself a strong lead, but all it takes is one piece of removal and you're right back where you started, but with a more expensive commander to recast. And before you say it
>dies to removal
Yes, things die to removal. Other players might not have any in hand when you cast it, but they're going to get a full turn rotation or two of draws before you'll likely be able to protect it with counterspells.
Also, like the other anon said

>>76071022
I wouldn't say plenty, but yes, Black and Blue get good removal too. Black getting good removal is a moot point since both Karador and Muldrotha have Black, so it comes down to what you want from your third color. White offers better hate pieces and some decent combo pieces like Reveillark, which Karador works pretty well with. Blue and Black being good for removal doesn't change the fact that White is good as a support color.

Not true. Red is kind of shit as a support color unless you're really hurting for artifact removal. I'd take White over it as a secondary color unless my primary color is Red.

Was thinking of building a Sakshima of a Thousand Faces partner deck with maybe Thrasios since Green has the most clone effects after blue but I wanted to consult /tg/'s opinion as I am doing clone tribal as the theme.

GAAIV seems particularly gross because cutting costs for your own shit on T2 is good, and the tax ensures that it won't be immediately removed. That line of play WILL put you ahead and let you assemble your boardstate before anyone else. Urza will also put you well ahead, and Jhoira can start nonsense several turns early. Those are just three off the top of my head that would be groan-inducing to see T1.

My real problem with Lotus though is that even if it does what it's designed to do the INTENDED GOAL is to randomly create non-games.

What's something that's fun to play against?

I want to hear absolutely ZERO complaints about my deck, I don't care if I win. I want to have fun and it seriously bums me out if my deck is ruining other people's nights.

The best luck I've had with different strategies so far is tribal. The Ur Dragon being the one I enjoy the most, but it still gets complaints about eminence and the few good cards like scourge of valkas/the throne and terror of the peaks.
The other tribal decks I've tested out, zombies, merfolk, elves, vampires, I find myself leaning into some kind of combo and end up hating the deck because if I ever overrun or do any combo that deck will be marked as "has a combo in it" for the rest of time.

Ya know, after typing this my friends have decks like niv mizzet, meren, edgar that do the things they complain about. Maybe it's time I'm just done.

Few of my wincons include enchantment beats with Opalescence, Approach of the Second Sun, unironically having opponents scoop or Solemnity+Decree of Silence lock.

It varies from set to set. Black was the one redeeming feature of Eldraine for me--it was depicted with a sort of melancholy nobility to it, dogged persistence instead of just another pile of zombies or bugs.

Because the game isn't 1v1 and the other players have threats as well? Not to mention if the ghast is ritual'd out or reanimated instead of hardcast they'll still have the mana at their disposal even if you remove it on the spot.

Actually, it happens the other way. Your Mortuary Mire trigger goes on the stack first, per APNAP order. Sire of Stagnation's trigger then resolves first because the stack is LIFO, and then your Mortuary Mire puts the thing you want back on top of your library.

Specifically killing the fun of Commander is what makes it die out eventually when people feel like they need to constantly improve their shells to just play the game, until you're basically playing cEDHlite and want to die.

so if I have a patron of the vein and during my turn I kill my opp's god eternal, he can put it third, but if I kill it during his turn with an instant, it gets exiled? What if I do it during another opp's turn? It gets exiled if I go after him in turn order?

It depends on the deck, the player and the meta. If someone regularly wins once Bolas Citadel resolves, then yes, it's worth it to Disenchant it. If lil Timmy just threw a deck together with cards from his drafts from the past year or two then obviously not

Is Winota still one of the best Boros commanders even with the new ones from Commander Legends? Asking because I pulled one from a pack and I've only played against her in Standard, not EDH. She's powerful in 1v1 but IDK if she makes up for Boros' weaknesses in grindy games.

It's been a long time since I posted here, so forgive me if this question comes up often.

pic related, keeps the board clear of fatties. They can always replay it for another ETB, but it typically only bounces the big creatures so it might cost them an entire turn's worth of mana, and it would just get bounced again anyway
>>
>>76077274
My contention is with Black exiling en masse. The damnation argument was lost chiefly and only because of MaRo's greed, which he even admitted to with the card's printing. White's ways of wiping the board of creatures is meant to be different than Black's.

I love Chainer but he's also one of the most popular ones. I'd invest in sac outlets

>>76077271
Chainer can't hold a candle to Yawg.

Yes. Though they got a mixed bag with the new set. Bell Borca is a pretty cool guy and doesn't afraid of anything

>Besides, if mono-U can exile creatures all bets are off
It feels fucking bizarre to have been introduced to blue as the color that has weak post resolution removal and now it exiles with better value than white.

Curse of Swine. Kiora's Dismissal. Hurkyl's Recall. Fucking Cyc Rift

Blue doesn't even get the worst creatures anymore

>>76077329
Eh, as a mono-B player I don't even run mass exile. Most go wide strategies use tokens and they disappear when they hit the yard

Thanks for the reply, anon. Borca looks alright... but he only accrues 1 CA per turn which isn't nearly as exciting as spinning a few Winota triggers. My biggest issue with Winota is that she limits deck building creativity since you need to fill a certain number of slots with specific creatures.

>>76076945
One more. For 4 cmc it's one of the few red theft effects that can grab any permanent. You get to keep it for multiple turns, too. Stealing a planeswalker to downtick or ultimate it, or nabbing a much-needed mana rock early in the game provides some sweet flexibility.

More like use Sneak Attack to cheat Draco onto the field, exile it with Fiend Hunter, swing for 16+ power with your commander and then next turn just Cloudshift Fiend Hunter to do it again

Classic. My buddy played that card and the Split Second ability has hurt me more than once. But 5 cmc is asking a bit too much nowadays, IMO.

>>76076654
No, it literally isn't how it works. Only the card that represents your commander gets moved to the command zone.
>>
>>76077660
>In a Commander game, your commander may be Bruna, the Fading Light or Gisela, the Broken Blade, and the other may be in your deck. If they meld into Brisela, Voice of Nightmares, Brisela will also be your commander; but if Brisela leaves the battlefield, only the card chosen as your commander at the start of the game may be put into the command zone.
Mutate works the same way, because as far as the game is concerned the whole pile is your commander.

Black literally already does this. The best deck I've ever seen in commander was a monoblack wuberg deck.

It's not some gay fucking Golos deck, is it?
>>
>>76077772
how can a deck be monoblack and WBRG at the same time!!
>>
>>76077599
very based
>>
>>76077772
Black is meant to be able to do lots of shit but at the cost of life. All their card draw and removal and all that shit costs you to use.
Of course in a 40 life format its not as big a limitation as it should be.

>Borca + Banish targets
Huh. Pretty sneaky. A few ways to do that too like with Parallax wave, imprint, Shoal, or suspend. Even after those trigger you can then exile stuff from your yard to get get double value from it. Even a SSG is of some minor value plus mana. Also just noticed it's when anyone's is exiled, so your Path and Swords hitting big targets pulls double duty.

I was unaware Vampire Fucking Nighthawk of all cards was supposedly too weak now

>>76073153
If you have Library of Leng out maybe.

Wish there was a commander with that effect. Could build it like the anti-cure deck in yugioh.
