Needs Mor Beatdown [EDH]


The Tentacled One
In case you've forgotten, Commander was originally called Elder Dragon Highlander and originally the commanders or "generals" were the five elder dragons from Legends. Since those are now some of the worst three-color commanders in the game, I'd never actually seen them in that role. So, when I had the opportunity to pick a weekly point in the West Coast Commander League, I went with elder dragons as commanders. I know at least one player used one of the M19 elder dragons. And the guy who accrued the most points this time, my nemesis, played with the original Nicol Bolas.

Palladia-Mors isn't even the worst of the original elder dragons. But she's still pretty bad! I threw this together yesterday morning. It could definitely be improved upon. I'll note that I did originally intend to build this deck with no Pioneer-legal cards, but I didn't spend the requisite time on hunting them down. I pulled off a last minute swap to get Zendikar Resurgent out of the deck, putting Heartbeat of Spring in its place. But I totally forgot that Crucible of Worlds had been reprinted and I also didn't take out Finale of Devastation, although I never saw either card during actual gameplay anyway.
