Quote from Tev »40 lands seems high. Perhaps add in a bunch of mana rocks to speed up your deck and lower that land count?
Quote from Tev »It's in your title. Control, Stax and Theft. Empress Galina is the stealiest stealer of stealing.
The entire game revolves around a supertype that Empress Galina can steal with only 2 mana; if that doesn't control the game I don't know does.
To clarify: You keep the Legend forever, there's no EOT clause or anything. You like that Jitte? It's yours. You think Erebos is neat? It's yours. Someone dropped a Mindslaver but didn't crack it? It's yours. Someone had the audacity to play their commander? It's yours. This is especially brutal since the majority of decks aren't Commander agnostic, a lot of them revolve around having their Commander.
