Eberyn's Finest Omelettes [EDH]

Oversoul

The Tentacled One
I built a pretty bad deck this time and it was bad because I was bad. But it won two out of three games anyway and accrued the most league points for the day. I attribute this to the awesome power of Sir Shandlar. After all who could forget the rallying cry of the Eberyn militia...

So, this was the first time anyone in the West Coast Commander League used on of the original vanilla legendary creatures. Collectively, we'd already showcased 18 out of the 55 originals, but all of those had some abilities. In the case of Bartel Runeaxe or Livonya Silone, those abilities might not be especially helpful, but that's not the point. Sir Shandlar of Eberyn has no abilities whatsoever. The option to try to hit opponent with equipped knights was the inspiration for this, but I didn't really end up doing that in my games. Instead, I got beaten up very badly, but kept using "eggs" (cheap artifacts that draw cards and then die so that Second Sunrise can bring them back).

With some upgrades to this rather odd list, a more properly tuned and robust white/green Second Sunrise combo deck in EDH could easily be viable. For such a purpose, I would not recommend Sir Shandlar as your commander. But it's what I did!
