Hello guys!

I don't know if you have been playing Magic the Gathering: Arena, but there's this AMAZING card called Inspiring Commander there (https://scryfall.com/card/ana/5/inspiring-commander). Wouldn't be AWESOME if the Comitee asked the WotC staff to bring this nice guy to Commander 2019 or 2020?

Inspiring Commander
4WW
Rare
Whenever another creature with power 2 or less enters the battlefield under your control, you gain 1 life and draw a card.

A six drop Mentor of the Meek? I guess.

White needs ways to generate CA THAT badly.

It's also a Mentor of the Meek with zero mana requirements, which is easily worth the extra cost in my book.

Or another way to look at it: it's a Soul of the Harvest that works with tokens.

I'd whirlwind slam Inspiring Commander into any white deck.

That one would become such a white staple I'd rather see it in an expansion product where we'll see higher production numbers of it.

It's also mandatory -- so something that generates a bunch of tokens *could* deck you with that out :)

So what you're saying is that it's an auto-include in Zedruu?

Just imagine it with Hero of Bladehold, Elspeth, Sun's Champion, Hanweir Garrison!

Yeah, seems undercosted for what it does. Would also super windmill slam it into all white decks

MaRo has gone on record (as much as Tumblr is "on record") saying Inspiring Commander is a colour pie break and will not see paper, ever.

Unfortunately I've seen it. They seem to even think that Mentor of the Meek and Dawn of Hope might have been mistakes... I really don't understand their fear of giving White any means of drawing cards.

Because White has answers to everything and lots of cards that change the rules (like Grasp of Fate, Authority of the Consuls or Mystic Barrier). If they had card draw (without having to play another color) then they could access these cards a lot faster. They already have some of the best cards, so making sure that they can play them more consistently isn't in anybody's best interest. It is widely believed that Sultai (G/B/U) is the best color combo in EDH, but if White got better card draw then why would you play 3 colors? If Green got more creature removal why ... wait Green is constantly getting better Fight cards ... nevermind.

"Breaking the color pie" is a garbage excuse. If Wizards was concerned in any way about the color pie, True-Name would have been white and Snapcaster Mage would have been red. Don't even get me started on Delver of Secrets.

By the time Inspiring Commander would land in a mono-white EDH deck, they should definitely be allowed to do dumb things like draw a bunch of cards off of tokens. Think about six drops in all the other colors and how much they impact the board. Consecrated Sphinx, Doubling Season, Dark Mike...the list is waaaay longer than that, obviously but those were first to pop into my head. Giving white a six mana creature that eats every removal spell in the game and only has four toughness wouldn't be hurting anyone.
