Hello folks, are you as excited with Commander 2019 as I am? :)

I've been thinking of some ways to make the best use of Gerrard, Weatherlight Hero's ability without letting him be exiled or go to the Command Zone.

For dealing damage with ETB triggers, we have:

Inferno Titan
Warstorm Surge
Purphoros, God of the Forge
Demanding Dragon
Burning Sun's Avatar
Impact Tremors

For reanimating Gerrard instantly before he's exiled by his ability, we have:
Adarkar Valkyrie
Brought Back
Graceful Reprive
Miraculous Recovery
Angelic Renewal
Gift of Immortality
Loyal Retainers
Sigil of the New Dawn

What else could be cool for a Gerrard deck?

If you have a sac outlet plus Flameshadow Conjuring / Minion Reflector / Mirror March and a lucky penny, you can play Gerrard, get a copy, let the original die to the legend rule, then sac the copy to get the original back.... annnnnd it goes infinite if your sac outlet adds enough mana to activate the enchantment (Phyrexian Altar for Conjuring and Ashnod's Altar for Reflector) or you have a mana etb/dies trigger like Priest of Urabrask or Cathodion.

That's true, but not very impressive for the amount of setup.

Honestly, I think he's better as Wrath insurance while you do the typical Boros artifact ramp into fatties.

Many of these are good with that plan anyway, but I wouldn't spend too many deck slots on it.

Edit: See also How To Destroy Your Friends with Gerrard Weatherlight Hero from Commander Replay.
TL;DW:
- You can go aggro.
- You can run lots of board wipes yourself, especially with sources of haste like Ogre Battledriver, Urabrask the Hidden, and Hammer of Purphoros so you can immediately attack.
- You can generate value and lock opponents out with artifact wipes like Oblivion Stone, Nevinyrral's Disk and Worldslayer.
- You can combo. Loyal Retainers is particularly good because the only other piece you need is a sac outlet that directly wins the game, like Goblin Bombardment. But he lists some others.
- You can mix and match.
