The characters rank in first place in the CEDH Tier List. Typically being Legendary creatures, their prices are a bit high, but their amazing and indescribable abilities make it all worth it. Although, while picking out your favorite one, you need to be aware of their abilities, as they are not cheap as we mentioned earlier.
Najeela: the Blade Blossom
Type: Legendary Human Warrior
- Being a Legendary Human Warrior, its abilities are frightening. Any warrior token created by Najeela can choose which specific player it wants to attack. There is no exception to this, as it can attack players which did not trigger the ability in the first place, or that were not being attacked previously.
- Another one of her abilities allows you yo untap all attacking creatures. Meaning they gain trample, lifelink and haste until the end of a turn.
- Najeela is a relatively expensive card, costing around 50-75 dollars on various card-purchasing websites. However, you can buy a lightly used one for just a fraction of the price here.
Thrasios: Triton Hero
Type: Legendary Merfolk Wizard
- One of his greatest abilities is having an effect to verify if your control over your commander is satisfied if you are currently controlling one or both of your commanders.
- Also, having two commanders is not that complicated. You can have two as long as both have a partner ability as the game begins. And even if you lose your ability during the game, you can still manage to control both commanders.
- When it comes to choosing your two commanders, you can do so with a partner that is the same color. While in the commander draft, you have the ability to even choose the same two commanders with your partner. However, you should be aware of the commander tax when you are doing this.
- Thrasios is unique when it comes to its price. It started off with a median price of 25 dollars, but since then, it has gone up rather than down.
- Worn-down cards for this character will run you 28 dollars, but if you want one which is only lightly played, you will have to spend north of 38 dollars.
Tymna the Weaver
Type: Legendary Human Cleric
- Tymna is a lifeline, so at the beginning of the post-combat phase, you have to pay the number of lives equal to the number of opponents that were dealt combat damage. Once you do this, you can draw that many numbers of cards.
- When it comes to paying for lives, you must pay the exact number mentioned above. If an opponent was inflicted with combat damage and lost the game afterward, Tymna’s ability is triggered, which counts that player. This, in turn determines the number of lives to be paid.
- The listed median price for Tymna the Weaver is around 35 dollars, but you can probably get it for cheaper.
- Cards like Tymna usually do not get much hype, but do not dare underestimate her abilities because of this. You can probably get the card for around 30 dollars from CardKingdom.
Kenrith: the Returned King
Type: Legendary Human Noble
- His first ability enables all the creatures on the battlefield to gain trample and haste until the end of the turn. However, this only affects the creatures currently on the battlefield. Any creature which enters later is not blessed with this skill.
- Another one of his abilities is to revive a creature card from any graveyard. Once revived, the creature card will be controlled by its original owner. Even if you leave the game, the creature card will remain on the battlefield.
- Being more commonly available, Kenrith: the Returned King does not come with a hefty price tag. You can buy it for under 10 dollars from most card-selling websites.
Type: Legendary Human Warrior
- By using this card, you can search your library to search for a card that is legendary. Then, reveal that card, and put it in your hand and, shuffle.
- If you ever want to search for a card, you need to search with certain requirements. So, you don’t get the card if you do not want to.
- Captain Sisay is one of the most expensive cards in the game, with the median price being around 130 dollars.
- If the hefty price tag is worth it is up for debate, but if you want to buy this rare card, you can do so here.
- If the price is too hefty to fit your budget, but you still want this amazing card, you can buy a moderately played one here.
Kess: Dissident Mage
Type: Legendary Human Wizard
- Kess enables you to cast an instant/sorcery spell from your graveyard. However, if you cast a spell like this one on your own graveyard, you must exile it. You need to pay all the costs to cast this card, and alternative costs can be used.
- If you place a sorcery card in your graveyard while the stack is empty and you are in the main phase, you can cast it before any other player has a chance to remove it.
- Another one of its amazing skills is if you gain a new Kess during the game, you can put down another spell in the same turn.
- The card for Kess is pretty cheap compared to other characters.
- With a ceiling price of just 11 dollars, you can buy a lightly used one for around 5 dollars, with shipping included.
The First Sliver
Type: Legendary Sliver
- The First Sliver possesses the Cascade ability, which allows exiling cards from the top of your library until you exile a nonland card that costs less when you cast this spell. Now, you can play this card without even paying its mana cost.
- Also, as a result of recent rule changes in the cascade ability, once you have exiled a card with a lower mana cost than the spell with cascade is exiled, you cannot continue exiling cards.
- All Sliver spells you cast have cascade.
- Due to its amazing cascade ability, The First Silver is quite expensive.
- It will cost you around 50 dollars, inclusive of shipping. Due to its rare nature, there are currently none available on the market, so you must always keep a lookout if you want this card.
Krark the Thumbless
Type: Mischievous Goblin Wizard
- When you cast a sorcery spell, you must flip a coin. If you lose the flip, you have to return the spell to the hand of the owner. But if you win the flip, you can copy that spell and choose targets for it.
- Krark’s second ability is known as Partner; it allows you to have two commanders if both have Partner.
- You can easily acquire the Krark card with a floor price of just a dollar and a half.
- It is commonly available almost on every other card-selling website. You can buy the cheapest one at Card Kingdom.
Kraum: Ludevic’s Opus
Type: Legendary Zombie Horror
- When your opponent casts their spell, you can draw a card because of Kraum. This can give you a huge edge and can often result in you winning matches.
- Like Krark, Kraum also has the Partner ability. This allows you to have two commanders, given they both have Partner as well.
- You can buy Kraum: Ludevic’s Opus from Cardmarket, TCGPlayer, and CardKingdom.
- Although, we would recommend that you buy it from CardKingdom since it is cheaper and have better condition compared to the rest of the sites.
Malcolm: Keen-Eyed Navigator
Type: Legendary Siren Pirate
- The Siren Pirate will give you a treasure token every time one or more Pirates you control deal damage to your opponents. This amazing ability considers all types of damages, which benefits you a lot more.
- Like the previous two cards, Malcolm also possesses the Partner ability, which allows you to have two commanders.
- As we mentioned earlier, this Pirate is the definition of value. You can buy this card for just under a dollar from almost every card-selling website.
Rograkh: Son of Rohgahh
Type: Legendary Kobold Warrior
- It introduces striking abilities, menace, and trample in your deck. Rograkh is a perfect offensive card to use in your deck.
- Once the game begins, both your commanders are tracked separately. If you want to perform an action on one of your commanders, you choose which one of your commanders you want at the time that the effect happens.
- You can buy this offensive piece for just under 5 dollars from any card-dealing website. For its abilities, we think the price is quite fair.
Tevesh Szat: Doom of Fools
Type: Legendary Planeswalker
- The Legendary Planeswalker has the ability to sacrifice. By using this card, you can sacrifice another creature and then draw another card if the creature sacrificed is a commander.
- This card also gives you the ability to gain control of all the other commanders from the command zone onto the battlefield. This can dramatically shift the tides of the match in your favor.
- Tevesh’s price is quite a bargain. It makes your deck stronger than the damage it does to your wallet.
- We advise you to buy as soon as possible, as this card is quite rare. You can buy a near-mint condition card for just under 10 dollars from TCGPlayer.
Winota: Joiner of Forces
Type: Legendary Human Warrior
- This Human Warrior enables you to put a Human Creature card onto the battlefield when a non-Human creature you control attacks. But the Human creature you put must be in the top 6 six cards of your library only.
- This card is quite unique, and since its rare nature, it has a dangerous price tag.
- You can get this card in good condition for anywhere around 25 to 35 dollars.
Also, explore the Dragon Ball Battle of Fate Tier List.
These cards are second to none in the CEDH Tier List if they are used wisely. They have powerful abilities and prove to be worth the price tag they have. Having these cards will be a huge asset to your deck.
Type: Legendary Human Ally
- This card enables you to control a creature ally that changes its color X number of times, keeping in mind that once its final ability resolves, the bonus remains the same regardless of any color changes in your Allies.
- General Tazri’s second ability grants all ally creatures you control to get +X/+X until the end of the turn. Where X is the number of colors between the creatures.
- With all that said, General Tazi comes in the category of one of the more commonly available cards.
- This places its price bracket in the range of 3 Dollars which is a pretty good bargain.
Zur the Enchanter
Type: Legendary Human Wizard
- This Wizard has a powerful ability that lets you search your library for an enchantment card (with a mana value of 3 or less) and put it into the battlefield when Zur attacks.
- Considering the exclusivity of this card, it comes at a whopping price of 55 dollars.
- This price only goes upwards to the mark of 90 Dollars on most card-selling websites.
Armix: Filigree Thrasher
Type: Legendary Artifact Golem
- Armix’s abilities include tracking two commanders separately. Meaning if you cast one commander, then the other isn’t going to pay additional when casting for the first time.
- When Armix’s ability doesn’t have a target when it goes on the stack, you can discard a card that triggers a second ability, and you get to pick one target that gets –X/-X.
- This card is in one of the more commonly available categories, which places its retail at about 35 cents, and can be found easily without any issues.
Yisan: The Wanderer Bard
Type: Legendary Human Rogue
- This card’s ability allows you to search the library for a creature with a mana value equal to the number of verse counters on Yisan and put that card into the battlefield.
- The listed median price for an A-Tier character like Yisan is 18 Dollars.
- You can also get it for 16 Dollars, depending on what site you’re buying it from.
Vial Smasher the Fierce
Type: Legendary Goblin Berserker
- This Goblin Berserker has a triggered ability that triggers every time you cast your first spell. This allows you to choose an opponent to whom Vial Smasher deals damage equal to that spell’s mana value.
- Vial Smasher also has the Partner ability, which lets you have two commanders.
- Vial smasher comes at a retail price of around 10 dollars which is probably because it doesn’t get the hype it deserves. Overall still quite a great value-for-money character.
Zaxara: the Exemplary
Type: Legendary Nightmare Hydra
- This card grants you the ability to add two mana of any color of your liking.
- Also, if you cast a spell with X as its mana cost, you can create a 0/0 green Hydra creature token, then out X +1/+1 counters on it.
- You can easily acquire this commonly available card from all major card-selling websites for just under a dollar.
Yidris: Maelstrom Wielder
Type: Legendary Ogre Wizard
- If you deal combat damage using Yidris, as you are casting spells from your hand, the player gains cascade.
- Yidris comes with a median price tag of 7 dollars.
- Whether it is worth it or not is up to you, but if you do want to add it to your collection, you can buy it at the best price here.
Wernog: Rider’s Chaplain
Type: Legendary Human
- When you choose to exit this card or enter it, each opponent gains the ability to investigate each player who did not lose even a single life. Then, you can investigate as many times as the opponents who investigated this way.
- This card will give you the Friends Forever ability. Friends Forever ability enables you to enter two commandos if both have this ability.
- Being a mere mortal, this card will not cost you must. You can find it for less than a dollar on any card-selling website
The Gitrog Monster
Type: Legendary Frog Horror
- Unless you sacrifice a land, you should sacrifice this card. Then, on every turn, you will be able to play an additional land.
- However, if multiple land cards are in your graveyard, you can only trigger Gitrog’s ability once. Also, when this does happen, you are allowed to draw a card.
- The Gitrog’s price comes at a very fair ceiling price of 20 dollars. Although, you can probably buy it for cheaper.
Sophina: Spearsage Deserter
Type: Legendary Human Soldier
- Whenever this card attacks, you can investigate for each non-token attacking creature.
- She also gives you access to the Friends Forever ability, in which you can have two commanders if both of them have Friends Forever.
- When it comes to price, it does not get lower than this. You can buy her card for under half a dollar, which is one hell of a bargain if you ask me.
- And with its low price, it edges its way into the highly competitive CEDH Tier List’s A-Tier.
Slicer: Hired Muscle
Type: Legendary Robot
- It specializes in the double strike and haste.
- Its unique abilities and rare design is what makes it so special. But when it comes to viability, this card is not of much use to you.
- This card is one of the most expensive cards in the game. You will find its price tag to be very hefty, ranging from 200 to 350 dollars.
- However, since it will not be of much use, players are desperate to sell it. So if you want to add this card to your collection, you can buy a slightly used one for under 30 dollars here.
Sidisi: Brood Tyrant
Type: Legendary Naga Shaman
- You can use this card to inflict the most amount of damage on your opponent. Whenever Sidrisi enters the battlefield or attacks, you can mill 3 cards.
- You can easily have Sidrisi’s last ability trigger. When creature cards are put into your graveyard from anywhere in the deck, you can trigger its ability.
- Sidrisi is rather cheap. Its card will cost you a maximum of 7 dollars, and probably less if you decide to get a card that has been used already.
Shorikai: Genesis Engine

Orvar: the All-Form
Type: Legendary Shapeshifter
- Oravar’s ability allows you to create a token of permanents whenever you cast an instant or sorcery spell. But that is only if you target one or more permanents you control.
- His second powerful ability allows you to create a token that’s a copy of the permanent target when the opponent forces you to discard this card.
- Orvar: the All-Form carries a hefty price tag for an A-tier card. With a ceiling price of a whopping 29.5 dollars, Orvar may be one of the most expensive cards in your hand.
Type: Legendary Creature: Horror

- Old Stickfingers’ strength and toughness vary depending upon the number of creature cards held in your graveyard.
- This card may be one of the cheapest cards placed in our A-tier. This may be due to the varying power of Old Stickfingers.
- You can buy Stickfingers from multiple markets for under a dollar.
Type: Legendary Dragon Wizard
- Niz-Mizzet grants you the ability to deal 1 damage to any target whenever you draw a card.
- If an effect causes you to draw multiple cards, Niz-Mizzet’s first triggered-ability is triggered that many times. You can choose the targets for them after you have drawn all of your cards.

- Magus Lucea Kane may leave your wallet a bit thin as you can buy her for the capping price of 14.99 dollars at Card Kindom.
If you are playing this game, a tier list is absolutely necessary. You cannot aimlessly throw around money and buy cards without knowing which one is best suited for your deck. That is why we felt it was important to develop a comprehensive CEDH Tier List that would rank only the best characters.
