Karador, Ghost Chieftain: Has most of the best cycling cards, reanimation, and tends to have a pretty strong number of ETB effects to abuse. I'd also accept Sharuum or Ravos/Bruse Tarl. Daxos the Returned also wouldn't be terrible.

This one is hard since it can't name creatures. I would probably go with Brago, King Eternal. Brago can make it do pretty decent Frontier Siege impression, and you can also play cards like Vendilion Clique in the deck to get information.

That's a great suggestion. I was thinking The Grand Calcutron but couldn't think of a black-bordered commander. TGC lets you see everyone's hands, so you can just pick the card you don't want to see yet. :lol:

Man... 4 mana to give everything you've got menace, trample, and get a lot of assured card draw *and* discarding. I adore Driven//Despair. It does well in any deck that cards about having at least a handful of creatures attacking. (It even does well in wide decks because enemies can block even less of your weenies, and you get that much more card draw; but since you're a green wide deck there's chances you'll have effects like Beastmaster Ascension online.)

The commanders that stand out to me are...
Saskia the Unyielding because you're playing an aggressive deck with multiple creatures that cares about hitting face.
Sidisi, Brood Tyrant because you'll have a bunch of zombies out and some zombie lords. An army of 3/3 or 4/4 (or bigger) zombies with menace and trample can be a game-ender.
The Mimeoplasm because you're playing a deck centered around many big creatures.
Karador, the Ghost Chieftain because all your spells are creatures and you keep getting them back.

Armies of saprolings (Ghave, Guru of Spores), Elves (Nath of the Gilt-Leaf, Rhys the Exiled) or snakes (Pharika, God of Affliction, Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons) also come to mind but aren't at the top of the list.

For this I'm going to have to pick Sidisi and Saskia as tied best commanders for fitting this card into; they both have equally compelling strong claim to it.

(Aside, I'm considering sticking that into a Chaos-colored revision of my dragon deck now, which is going to be powered by Vial Smasher the Fierce and Thrasios, Triton Hero.)

Without question The Mimeoplasm. You can easily give yourself what is essentially an 11+ power unblockable general, and if you ever want him back from exile you can just get him.

Dismiss into Dream

Oooh nice one.

I'd consider a Cephalid Aboshan, or Experiment Kraj or maybe Derevi or Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind for a slightly different take on 'those' decks

But in the end I'd go for either Tibor and Lumia or Alexi, Alexi in particular would make an excellent control deck with Dismiss.

My card is Keep Watch

I wanna say any deck that goes wide. My guess is some brew involving Tishana, Voice of Thunder, because Tishana can get super huge. Get some unblockable or trample, and it's game over.

Mechanized Production (not Breya, plz).

I don't want to name the same general twice, but this card is a baller in my Thada Adel deck. You can easily get 4+ Sol Rings in play before casting the enchantment. But if I have to name someone else, probably either Riku for being able to double the rate or Padeem for protection.

Sen Triplets. They run lots of artifacts and they run Paradox Haze and Strionic Resonator for doubling Triggered abilities.

Next card: Neverending Torment

A favourite of mine. I wrote an article about it once.

It's a great wincon to any prison deck that has black in it. I think Kuon, Ogre Ascendant would be great (clearly), as well as Zur the Enchanter prison. Alternatively, some kind of mass-draw or hand-glut combo with a no-maximum-hand-size mechanic, would work where it only takes an upkeep or two to draw a player out. For that, I'd be tempted to play Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix/Silas Renn or Tasigur, the Golden Fang, so you can play with things like Praetor's Counsel and draw-X spells.

My final answer would probably be Tasigur.

Next up: Null Profusion

I would go with one of the spellslinger generals that plays out of the graveyard: Dralnu, Lich Lord, Kess, Dissident Mage, or Toshiro Umezawa. I think Toshiro is my favorite of those three.

Mastery of the Unseen

I'd just like to thank whoever it was that suggested Driven/Despair, because my Jund deck now has a new favorite toy.

Meren of Clan Nel Toth, without question. A very far second would be Lyzolda,
Blood Witch
. Both of whom are good reanimators who can actually use the little pipsqueak and don't necessarily mind him appearing once per turn. Elandra also isn't terrible with it either.

The first thing I thought of was Nekuzar, the Mindrazer, but I also like this card in Taigam, Sidisi's Hand as long as you include plenty of "players can't draw cards" effects.

Next card: Aether Vial

I would go with Kami of the Crescent Moon.
You can run symmetrical bounce like Aether Tradewinds, Curfew, and Peel from Reality to bounce it on your turn, and then put it back into play with Aether Vial before your draw step so only you draw. Or if you are feeling political, you can only let players who help you draw.
It also can let you play some other tricksy two drops like Spellskite and Gilded Drake out of nowhere.

The next card is Soulblade Djinn.

You're welcome! I can never seem to get it to work for me, which is why I suggested it.

This is a great idea, but I think it would physically hurt me to play a morph deck without blue. XD
