Tasigur, the Golden Fang


Standard likely would only run one curve-topper type creature and this has stiff competition from Soulflayer and Necropolis Fiend and common sense. Standard is out, which leaves EDH.

EDH don't want this. This has a few things going for it.

  • It's in Sultai colors
  • It puts things in the yard
  • It can be a political card, allowing an "opponent" let you select a removal spell you need to thwart a third player
  • You can pay his commander tax by delving more cards, making him easier to recast

The negatives outweigh the positives, the most important of which is that this is worse than Sidisi, Brood Tyrant, a general people aren't enthusiastic about. Why would you not build The Mimeoplasm and build this instead? This has "bulk rare" written all over it.

  1. Well as far as edh goes I think you’re right that he’s not great for a powerhouse deck, but if you want to run a more subtle, political control deck then this guy is awesome. Unlike the other possible generals in these colors he is neither creature-centric or prone to painting a target on your head before the game has even begun. edh is a format that allows for more creativity than you’re giving it credit for I think.

  2. Hahahha, worst speculation of the decade. This is number 1 replacement for Goyf in modern atm. This will only see increase in price. It is a standard beast and loads of decks are currently playing it in modern.
