Counterpoint: Edgar Markov is one of the most powerful commanders out there at the moment and basically all it does is pump out dudes and turn them sideways. Sure, he makes more dudes, but that's not "synergy" by any reasonable definition, that's just making more dudes.

My Edric deck wins by pumping out a ton of evasive dudes from Turn 1 until people stop twitching. My Wort, Boggart Auntie deck does the same.

(Counterpoint to my own counterpoint; Anax and Cymede try to do this with soldiers, and it's not as effective)

"Turning dudes sideways" is a perfectly good way to win a Commander game, and you don't need combo/synergy effects (because let's face it "synergy" - when pushed to its extreme- is just another word for "combo") to make it good.

Likewise, synergy/combo decks are also a perfectly good way to win a Commander game. But I refute your point that you need combo to win.

All decks need synergy between their cards. Two draft pools smushed together isn't going to win you any games. But a coherent strategy with a plan will win games, whether the plan is "combo off", "assemble the unstoppable machine of unstoppable value" or "turn dudes sideways"

Elvish Piper plus a card is hardly a combo. Find a way to put your hand into play with Elvish Piper, that is a combo. But even then, playing Genesis Wave is likely easier and more effective.
