My idea of EDH Commander 2019

Recommended Posts

The next #MTG #EDH #Commander #2019Set should focus around Level Up Legendary Creatures that transform after hitting their final level.



Sklink, the Exceed


Colors: Green Red Black

Legendary Creature - Human Cleric Avatar

First Strike, LifeLink

Level up [GRB] (GRB): Put a level counter on this permanent. Activate this ability only any time you could cast a sorcery.) [1/1]

Level 1-2 return 1 creature card from your Graveyard to your hand then, each opponent randomly discard a card. [2/2]

Level 3-4 exile all non-creatures cards from all graveyards, place a +1/+1 counter on this card for card exiled this way. [3/3]

Level 5 Transform Sklink, The Exceed




^in my above example, it starts off rather nice and cheap to cast. leveling up just makes do cool things while getting slightly stronger. in this particular example my level 3/4 commander will be pretty nasty to deal with and transforming may be a nice added bonus.



Low CMC commanders + low cost to level them up. leveling up should always do something or benefit from it (vs the ones where you are just dumping mana into it so you can get to the later levels) making each level up exciting and worth doing while you are boosting up your commander. getting to that optional transformation is a sweet bonus.



In the most ideal way about going about this is to make em low CMC and low cost to level up while leveling up does helpful things (like giving it keywords or etc.) and maybe increasing it's P/T. Getting to that 2nd strip or even transforming should be a breeze.



X : It would take too long when most if not all forms of removal will likely be getting pointed at your commander once they hit the field. The mana investment simply wouldn't be worth probably having to bring them back again and again and again just to transform it.



@SK79LinkXyz : You make the initial side worth putting on the field on its own merit then, lving it up just adds on to it also transforming is just an added bonus that is total optional. I see from your point of view but, depending on the design of these commanders, it can be totally worth it.


Tell me what you think of this?
