ishai and tana partner commanders (MTG EDH Commander Deck)

Recommended Posts

#MTG #EDH #commander Building a 4 colored partner edh commander enchantment aura deck by starting with a 20 dollar deck builder toolkit.






ishai, the ojutai dragonspeaker and tana, the bloodsower are the two partner commanders.



The four colors of the deck is red blue white and green.



The object of the deck is kinda voltron like and aura enchantment focus but mostly battle focus.



Pump up my already hexproof/unblockable creatures with auras.



Ishai gets more pumped up the more opponents play and tana makes tokens for dealing damage.



Making commanders hexproof and or unblockable works really well.



I did add Aurelia and Bruna (also helm of the host to boot)



Bruna can recover all aura and pump bruna to insane amounts



Aurelia can give double battle phases which is helpful when I need to deal commander damage potentially knocking out 2-3 people in one turn.



We need a list of cards to give you any real constructive criticism.


2x commanders (And my back-up commander but this is mostly deck works around the two partners)



28 lands

1x evolving wilds

1x morph zone

1x shimmering grotto

5x basic land plains

5x basic land mountain

5x basic land island

5x basic land forest

6x etb tapped lands (for mana fixin)



10 artifacts

8 mostly typical mana rocks except sol ring. want to put a sol ring in

1 swiftfoot boots

1 helm of the host



2 multicolored cards

1 Aurelia, the warleader

1 Bruna, the Light of Alabaster




mostly ramp stuff like

1x mana dork

typical mana ramp cards

1x thunderfoot balooft (the one that likes having commander out)

1x cmc 6 drop 8/8 that gives every other creature I own trample

some enchantment auras




unblockable guys

some enchantment auras

some draw cards




cmc 6 flying white angel that gives every other creature I own valiance

some enchantment auras

open the vaults

sagas like fall and triumph





some pump spells

some enchantment auras

tormenting voices

haste/flying/trample creatures



card names.



Your list is vague and unhelpful. For each line, there are many potential options, and I suspect you aren't using the best of them. Just type out the names of the cards, I know it takes time, but the time you spent on the shortcut was wasted.



What I'll say now is to run more lands. Your deck has neither the speed nor consistency to do with such a low number. Shoot for 36.

no, they don't.


Having 3-4 drop Mana rocks doesn't change the fact that you won't be seeing enough land to consistently play the early game, let alone reach the late game. Even if you were running 2 drop rocks (of which there are many, almost all of which are very good) you are running a comically low number of lands. For casual decks, don't even consider running less than 32 lands.
