Finally getting around to this.

I love "for each commander you control" makes partner better and taking other people's commander is encouraged.

Does anyone have feedback for my commanders?

I'll try something like this:

Batman wrote:
Batman 2 mana symbolWhite mana symbolBlack mana symbol
Legendary Creature - Human Knight Mythic Rare
Vigilance, first strike, reach
Whenever a creature dealt damage by Batman this turn dies, regenerate that creature.
Partner (You can have two commanders if both have partner.)
Superman wrote:
Superman 3 mana symbolRed mana symbolWhite mana symbol
Legendary Creature - Djinn Mythic Rare
Flying, trample, indestructible
2 mana symbolRed mana symbol: Superman deals 2 damage to target creature.
Partner (You can have two commanders if both have partner.)

You guys probably have better ideas for race and class than I do...

Okay, this works then.

Roven's end step trigger as it is will trigger once, if you want it to trigger every turn remove "next".

PW Roven's +X is broke, you need to put a comma after the +X and a Colon after Sac X creatures to make Sacrificing a cost.

@Ziolang: The white one doesn't work as expected, its boost wears off much earlier than damage, meaning that the +1 to toughness is usually pointless. I would make it an attack trigger (like the green one) that lasts until end of turn.

So I just whanted to get this one right. Asthanius took my first idea with Partner Planswalkers. So I droped that one.
Then I whanted a comander the could Tutor for the other one and legendary creature in you library, but I droped that one as well.
I whanted something that just screams partnership. and soulbond do that. So one should have soulbond. I was first looking for a horse and a knight, but it turned out to these two instead.


Rawlion is giving some for of Banding. I hope its clear how its works. they attack "as one" but they are still two creatures. I did not what a meld or transform effect, and I tihnk this works.)

Card renders added to original post. If you're too lazy to find original post, see below:


@spazlaz: I really like the idea of the card, but IMO Roven has the problem of being borderline unplayable without the meld. I'd say either he should be larger or have something like "Sacrifice a creature: Roven gets +1/+1 and gains menace until end of turn. Then, if you sacrificed a creature named Alira..."

December 2017 - R32 - "We are more than just rank and file..."
February 2018 - DDH - "Remember that overconfidence is a slow and insidious killer."

I stand with the specimen.

I like the idea behind this challenge, so here's me giving it a shot:

Jeron, Memory's BaneBlue mana symbolBlack mana symbol
Legendary Creature - Human Rogue
Whenever CARDNAME deals combat damage to a player, that player discards a card at random. If you control another commander, draw a card.

Kesvali, Oblivion Seer3 mana symbolWhite mana symbolBlack mana symbol
Legendary Creature - Human Wizard
When CARDNAME enters the battlefield, if you control another commander, you may destroy another target nonland permanent.
Whenever a permanent an opponent controls leaves the battlefield, gain 1 life and scry 1.

@Fermat: Aran's effect seems powerful enough to warrant Mythic Rare status. A simple test of this postulate would be to look at Kaervek. He has quite the powerful ability, so naturally, he's a rare. But what if his cmc was 3, like Aran's? That certainly seems like it would push it up into Mythic Rare, right (as well as pushing it into unfun territory {Come to Unfun Territory. It's where the miserable is!})?

Kaervek can be used as removal which makes it significantly better. I do agree that 1 mana symbolBlue mana symbolBlack mana symbol is too low though.

@ Mahx Michael - What's the synergy between them supposed to be? Just curious.

Looking for fun? Try Battle Boards!

Sun, 2017-03-26 23:26

@sdfkjgh and jacqui: Any suggestions? Will 2 mana symbolBlue mana symbolBlack mana symbol suffice, or would 3 mana symbolBlue mana symbolBlack mana symbol for a 2/3 with this ability be safer?

Thanks for your input


Roven now a 4/4. I meant to do this earlier but i forgot to change it.

Added names, types and a few other changes.

Strefan Maurer Black mana symbolRed mana symbol
Legendary Creature - Vampire Wizard Mythic Rare
At the beginning of your upkeep, choose a creature and draw a card. If you do, discard a card at random, and ~ deals damage equal that cards converted mana cost to the chosen creature.
Partner (You can have two commanders if both have partner.)

Khiesen, Golgari Sage 1 mana symbolBlack mana symbolGreen mana symbol
Legendary Creature - Elf Shaman Rare
When ever ~ deals combat damage to an opponent, you may return a land or creature card with a converted mana cost less then or equal to the damage dealt this way from your graveyard to the battlefield.
Partner (You can have two commanders if both have partner.)

While Khiesen is not an actual mtg figure, Strefan Maurer is, and is the progenitor of one of Innistrad's smaller vampire bloodlines, the Maurer line, and his discard abilities work well with discard vampires, including the "Twins of Maurer Estate".

There is probably none. I just picked them out of flavor. Couldn't come up with any good ideas, so I just took the first that came to mind. I'm not that good with superheroes either. It's not something I'm particularly interested in...
Original idea was Batman and Robin, but I haven't watched any Batman movies or comics, so I have no idea what Robin is like...
