  1. Original printing could have been amusing with Ojer Axonil.

  2. or impact tremors or Purphoros, God of the Forge

  3. Has always been a sleeper!!! FYI it can go infinite very easily with some pieces such as mana echoes and hardened scale or any additional counters. So you pay 1 generic to make an elemental then get 2 for mana echoes and remove one from marath to have one counter left and put another one on her to make it 3 but with one colorless floating from the mana echoes to repeat this process until you have unlimited counters, creatures and mana. With marath the infinite is actually complete with the remove counters for damage ability on her!!!!!

  4. Still pretty busted. Maybe not Najeela busted, but he definitely does things.

  5. X can't be 0, eh. Well, at least removing 1 +1/+1 counter to put 1 +1/+1 on itself wouldn't be to any value, right? Still goes infinitely hard, just requires slightly more effort.

  6. The really weird part to me is that in the reprint "X can't be 0" is written once next to "choose one" but in the Oracle text it's listed under each option.

  7. Crazy that the rules even allow you to even activate an ability for zero mana to essentially do nothing. I would have assumed that you can't activate the ability unless you spend at least one token, and i would have been a fool

  8. Lol, just last night I almost made a similar issue with a custom card! You could tap and pay any energy to create a robot with x/x equal to the energy spent. But I noticed that exact issue and added a minimum amount.

  9. Wow I actually didn’t know that one! There is a similar funny situation with 3-Color Minsc, where you can have him be a sorcery speed sac outlet for X=0

  10. Boo; you make the mistake, the meta lives with the consequences. Schenadigans in Naya aren't that viable, right. . .

  11. Im still sad that they made this errata. Marath was my first ever commander, and I bought a single copy of the original card instead of the entire precon with the initial intention to build an entire deck exclusively out of my existing collection of cards.

    The deck was absolutely awful, but shortly after I had assembled it, Purphoros, God of the Forge, was released in Theros block. It didn't take very long to figure out what to do with that.

    I still build new Marath decks every other year or so because he's just so absurdly versatile. I think my favorite one so far had an Enrage sub-theme where you just do a single damage to a creature for more value than it should have. It took a lot of setup, but it was a ton of fun.

  12. At first I thought this was going to be something about how the commander tax becomes a bonus rather than a penalty, since I run Prossh, Skyraider of Kher, and that first line on Marath looked eerily similar.
    Then I realized Marath doesn't really get a renewable sac outlet to create tons of mana.

  13. My Commander 2013 of choice is Oloro. Not his precon, it's horrible, but for being a decent commander that you can stax the game with until the heat death of the Universe.

  14. Marath was and still is my favorite Commander. He helms my Naya BloodPod cEdh deck and will forever.

  15. this was my first deck oh how the format has changed

  16. Tangent: why do people keep saying "+1/+1" in full each time? In the majority of cases, wouldn't just "plus" be sufficient?

  17. Getting big Prossh vibes from this guy. 😅

  18. I don’t understand why anybody would be surprised! from now on coming out of Hasbro / wizards is going to be a bunch of shit that makes us want to spend money,that’s it! they don’t care about the health of the game or anything else. They care about their profits and their shareholders
    Nothing else.

  19. One of my favorite mass misprints is definitely from commander 2021. Zaffai, Thunder Conductor is written as Thunder Collector on the text box. And that one doesn’t have a reprint correcting the mistake.

  20. My favorite commander and one of my favorite decks I have. Never gets old to play it as it can be so versitile and fun

  21. Has always been my favorite commander from before I even understood how broken it is

  22. A week after it came out wizards already announced it has errata that x can't be 0

  24. So busted. I stopped playing ghave cuz its too strong but this is just as naughty

  26. Even with the reprint, the ability to add +1 counters doesn't specify it can't be him. So you can pay 1 to remove a counter from him and put a counter back on him. Throw in some effects like hardened scales and the knowledge that this can be done at instant speed and he can get very scary very quickly 😁

  28. I love that marath is busted without errata yet is almost worthless with it. 😂

  30. Can the 2nd ability target planeswalkers? The first printing says "target creature or player", but the second printing says "any target"

  32. I've won with that stock deck so many times it's really strong

  33. Damn can't believe they patched marath doing 0 damage

  34. I recently made a Marath budget deck and he's super easy to build around with cards like Cryptic Trilobyte that gives 2 colorless mana whenever you remove a counter from it.

    Using something like urban daggertooth to ping for damage, proliferate and get as much mana as you want. If you give urban daggertooth a counter before pinging it the thing won't die either.

    Cards like Arwen, weaver of hope are also absolutely busted with Marath. Any mana dork that generates mana based on power/toughness can also be abused lmao

  35. So they gave the commander what is effectively an "indicate" effect before being errata'd?!

  36. Nothing can defeat the cloud fort of selesnya mirri Weatherlight Duelist. Best fog commander ever. 😅
