Hi everyone. Long time lurker, first time poster here.

I'm building a Glissa The Traitor deck, my favorite commander. I already build her based on her combat ability (voltron + recursion) and sac artifacts + her second ability. I was thinking about building with cards that care with the number of cards in my hand, since her recursion ability can get nuts and I don't have enough mana to play them all.

Is there any cards like that in BG ?

Welcome to the forums Gabriel

Quick search reveled the following (there are likely more but I didn't go too deep in the search):

Number of Cards in your hand:
Venser's Journal
Empyrial Plate
Psychosis Crawler
Maro
Inner Calm, Outer Strength
Masumaro, First to Live
Kagemaro, First to Suffer
Kagemaro's Clutch
Neverending Torment
Nightmarish End

Number of cards in all hands:
Realm Seekers
Multani, Maro-Sorcerer

More cards than opponent:
Exile into Darkness
Death of a Thousand Stings

Things to do with cards in hand:
Scroll Rack
Nostalgic Dreams
Rites of Spring
Restless Dreams

Hope that helps

Empyrial Plate, Psychosis Crawler and Kagemaro make sense in Glissa. Beware that big beaters without evasion... aren't that great. So put that armor on a trampler.

Another thing where cards in hand matter is with discard outlets. I like Mindless Automaton in my Glissa.

And don't forget Metalworker. Simply playing all those cards from your hand likely is the best strategy.

Thanks. I did the same search, but dismissed most of the cards you cited, either because of lack of evasion, underpowered or I already tried and the card is underwhelming. I'll try another look.

I'm thinking about them, mainly Plate. Metalworker is a plan B as soon as I have $ to get it. Is there more cards like it ?

I'm running dredge with her. I dump a lot of creatures and artifacts and Living Death them, but a lot of times creatures dies and I end up with a lot of artifacts in my hand. Maybe something to abuse artifacts in my gy ?

There are some cards that let you reveal cards from your hand, like Ivy Seer. That's not what you're looking for, because you're running a lot of artifacts.

Obviously you could try artifact creatures plus Living Death, which works just as well. Just load up on Arcbound creatures (as a reference, look at Sheldon's deck: http://sales.starcitygames.com/deckdatabase/displaydeck.php?DeckID=70639). You could try to use those cards in hand as a resource, not too different from Metalworker. There are a lot of spellshapers like Urborg Syphon-Mage, but I doubt that'll be a huge success. You could try Pack Rat, or the Mindless Automaton I suggested. Zombie Infestation can be a good one. If you go with more discard outlets, I'd work in a reanimation theme.

You could look at these threads for inspiration:

The list is this https://imgur.com/RN0KpCO. Results are mixed, for the last two days I remember losing about half of the games. What am I'm doing wrong, besides the lack of artifact creature ? Still working on get some good ones.
