How much does her dress weigh? If that's gold, She's probably carrying around 20-25kg. And I can't really tell how it is supported. Is she carrying that on her shoulders? She'll ruin her back in no time.
The more I keep looking at it, the worse it gets. I've seen the picture of what it is inspired by, but that doesn't change the fact that it's incrdibly ugly, and would be a nightmare to move around in.
How would she even get up the stairs? The hem of her dress would catch on the steps, making it nearly impossible to move up. Even if it didn't, walking up stairs carrying 25 kilos of pure gold is no small task.

Kinnan is probably the perfect litmus test to figure out who is a faggot to not allow into your group. If they're such a degenerate simicfag that they're willing to make a deck around a character with such terrible art and lore, just to have an obnoxious infinite combo and degenerate ramp maker in the command zone, then they're probably the sort of massive faggot to slurp up wotcs liquid shit, and you don't want that shit in your group.

So I guess WotC is doing this whole official commander nights thing with handing out prizes for doing different stuff?

My LGS just posted their achievement criteria. Getting 7 of them nets you one prize, 14 a bigger prize:

>Cast a Companion from outside the game.
>Cast a spell with Ultimatum in the name.
>Control a creature with 40 or more power.
>Mutate a creature that has already been mutated twice.
>Cycle three or more times in a single turn.
>Control a creature with 4 or more different counters on it.
>Attack all other players in a single attack.
>Eliminate another player with Commander damage.
>Control 8 or more permanents with different converted mana costs.
>Control 10 or more creatures with at least 1 counter on each.
>Have no cards in your library.
>Draw 10 or more cards in a single turn.
>Win a game of Commander.
>Finish a game without playing your Commander.
>Have a life total of 100 or greater.

Besides, the shape of it indiicates it's heavier at the back, meaning it should constantly be sliding backwards.

Nah, combo decks live and die by consistency, and the additional deck size Yorion enforces is a lot more of a drawback to that than the consistency promised by always having Yorion. The decks that are interested in Yorion are control decks. Combo decks need a very specific set of cards, but Control decks can take a much more relaxed stance, since those additional 20 cards can just be more generic Control cards. The main thing it'll hurt is game 2 and 3 where powerful sideboard cards come out and games can be very quickly determined by who gets their hoser first.

Here is some spice I found. Not super sekrit spice but still spice.
Run the fucking Tethmos package. Just fucking run it. The guy will never die when you draw him and he recurs almost all your threats for free.
Once you are running him you add Kami of Ancient Law and Torch Fiend. There is a better target than Torch Fiend but that isn't the point. You will never have a problem with artifacts or enchantments again.
Auto-include the Sunforger. You will end up with at least 30 targets. The great thing is you never need to even draw the forger, its completely winmore but feels like playing a pod deck in EDH when you get it. When you add Sunforger Metallic Theft is a must add.

Which is why I passed on building him. You can throw in a bunch of return to hand effects to keep recasting your few mutate creatures, but you're probably only rarely going to have more than Vadrok and one other mutant in hand so it really doesn't seem like it'd function well.

I rarely see the tax go above 4. Maybe to 6 once or twice, if someone’s playing a 2-mana commander. But it’s not like you just mindlessly slam it onto the table whenever you have the mana—sometimes there are better plays than casting your commander, sometimes you want to wait until you have something else in hand, and so on. Dedicating that much of your deck to avoiding a minor inconvenience, rather than ways to actually advance the game, is silly.

Giving you cards that let you cheat Command Tax isn't taking the unique nature of Commander out of Commander, because it means you're dedicating resources to interacting with a part of Commander. Having access to cards like Command Beacon is infinitely different from getting rid of Command Tax, because you're having to make deckbuilding and gameplay considerations about Command Tax every time you use them. Is it worth it to compromise my mana base in case I need to get my Commander into my hand? Is it worth sacrificing a land now to be able to play my Commander? Should I dedicate cards to recurring this in case I need to use it again? All of those are questions being posed because of Command Tax. You might as well say they're trying to take the unique nature of Magic out of Magic because you're only supposed to play one land every turn and this motherfucker Oracle of Mul Daya seems to think differently.

To play sanctioned tournament formats, you have to play decks that are competitive in the tournament meta. Commander meta is local.
