Greetings, fellow cardsmiths! This is my first challenge. I wanted to make a challenge to highlight some of the more unusual archetypes of EDH. I love playing a deck that plays around some unusual or underused strategy. Here's a few examples to get you started.https://mtgcardsmith.com/view/it-that-consumes-2
It that consumes: A demonic horror straight from a phyrexian's nightmares. A deck built around it wants to dump as many creatures as possible into the grave to make It That Consumes as big as possible. A good variety of powerful abilities would also help this monster become even more monstrous. Pseudo-Voltron is my best description for its playstyle.https://mtgcardsmith.com/view/saevel-hand-of-darknesshttps://mtgcardsmith.com/view/ailin-dark-director
Saevel and Ailin: two characters from my custom set, designed as partner commanders for a sultai enchantment deck. It isn't your typical enchantment build, requiring you to sacrifice your enchantments to use their effects. It also draws on elements from reanimator, mill, and stax. An unusual build to say the least, but an interesting one.https://mtgcardsmith.com/view/faas-krux-death-arbiter
Faas Krux, Death-Arbiter: Another character from my custom set. Faas is an aggro/swarm comander. His effects can grant massive buffs to all your creatures, and he has a sizeable p/t for his mana cost. Cards that would go well in a Faas deck would be effects that grant you additional combat phases, as well as high-power creatures that you can use to simply beat your opponents' faces in.
Following my examples, your entry should have the following:
-Create a legendary creature that has characteristics of some deck archetype (Voltron, Mill, Token Swarm, etc.)
-A brief explanation of how a deck built around that creature would run.
-(optional) other custom cards that support the commander's abilities.
-The deadline for this challenge is tuesday, April 24th at midnight US Central Time. I may end it sooner or later depending on interest.
-Old cards are allowed, but new cards are preferred
Without further ado, let's see what kinds of interesting commanders you can make! Good luck, and have fun!
