This is why I'm never really interested in discussions on new commanders. Optimization discussions are interesting for a time, then it feels like the prevailing wisdom is to only build in that particular way. I understand the motivation for competitive formats/cEDH play and not so much elsewhere.toctheyounger wrote: ↑1 year agoHave to say....the prevalent plan for Chulane is kinda boring. Seems to be spam Shrieking Drake, combo out with Aluren/Laboratory Maniac, or chew through the deck and machine gun with Walking Ballista. Doesn't even seem a lot of fun to pilot. I'd love to see someone do a different thing with him.
Chulane in particular can support literally any creature based strategy in Bant colors, which should give people plenty of room to play around with. Optimizing to Shrieking Drake/Aluren combo lines in every list might be the most effective deck but it doesn't feel like something that would stay interesting to play to me.
