What generals do you hate to see in a 1v1 game?

For me, there are 2 I just refuse to play against: Azami and Azusa.

Honorable mentions go to Vendilion Clique and Zur.

Edric. I think he's pretty much the only one I truly loathe.

There are (or have been) 3 Momir players in total in the playgroups I play with. Every each one of them uses him to easily access infinite comboes.



It's just the fact that she needs to be killed on sight unless we want our lands to be nuked. LD is not necessarily a part of a Kaalia deck but it does power them up enough to warrant slots even in groups in which mass LD is frowned upon (such as ours).



Once again, I suppose I hate the decks I've seen him leading more than him. That having been said, he's a true griefer himself.

You know what is funny?

My wife plays



and one of the generals I play is:



I generally don't play GAAIV unless I want to win 1v1 though. It is not fun for the opponent to sit through a turn 2 GAAIV followed by a turn 3 , in a 1v1 game.

Zur. Just waaaaay too identical. Each game the same moves.

We thought he'd be like a less irritating in my play group, but he still sucks. At least Uril lets me keep my stuff. If you actually let him get enchanted by just about anything his exile trigger makes all the players twitch for their spot removal. To avoid having your best thing shot down you have to kill him before he gets to attack which makes you feel like the enemy of fun. No one wins.



I'm sick of Ghave combo lists. Nearly every guy I talk to about commander knows someone with a Ghave list with at least some of the usual combo suspects. I can't relax with a Ghave player at the table, if you don't watch 'em the chance of losing to random //Dark Mike bs increases with every passing turn.

Isn't part of being about individualism? Ghave is not special or unique anymore. Go break something niche and cool instead. I'm saying this and I play Kaalia for God's sake.

The rare time I do a duel or competitive play, of sorts, I used to run . Good luck finding removal for her in time that she can easily end up avoiding with some proper card choices. Heck, even I came to despise her and the strat just felt so boring and linear and the faces I would get from other players.

Ghave and Riku are both really annoying.

And I think Elesh Norn and Jin-Gitaxias players should be killed before they get enough mana to cast their generals, because even if the decks aren't otherwise broken, I can't stand having those guys on the field. Vorinclex too, actually.

I do not dislike any generals right away, since I have seen decks built around many legends which are generally hated by most of the community that were really cool and fun. Although there are a few generals who have a bad reputation for a reason. Joira is probably the only one, where most decks will probably turn out being the same deck.

Omnath gets old for me, but he is popular at my LGS.

Kaalia and Jhoira aren't inherently annoying, but when they are built competitively to win by paralyzing everyone else with landkill, it's a different and agonizing story. My buddy's Jhoira deck is still strong, but doesn't go for Obliterate or any of that craziness.

I haven't seen him as a general much, but I hate, hate, hate Vorinclex. I played him myself once, (Not as a general) watched everyone at the table's eyes glaze over, and haven't played him since.

I suppose I don't auto-hate most generals, but if you are playing one of the mono-blue "combo" generals (Azami, Teferi, Arcum,) I will be watching you very closely for shenanigans. My hate is reserved for those who drop Armageddons, Obliterates, and Knowledge Pool with Teferi out.
