Abzan Banner Discussion

JoosetheMuice on Doran the Angry Ent

I would cut a board wipe, maybe two. I'd also drop a land. Abzan Banner is a strictly worse Commander's Sphere . Solidarity is the one combat trick you are missing. I really don't Huatli is even worth it in here to be honest, shes pretty underwhelming. I think Darksteel Plate would be nice if you can get it, protecting Doran is key and its better than hyena umbra. I also love Read the Bones and Snuff Out in most black decks. Sylvan Reclamation is also really strong. I'd run that or Return to Dust . Crod would recommend Crush Contraband over return but I prefer the former.

As for creatures

I think Sapling of Colfenor would be good. Pontiff of Blight seems kinda fun. Karametra, God of Harvests . Oblivion Sower is something a little unconventional that I like, and World Breaker could also be worth a shot.

Shock lands are cheap right now, I'd try to grab an Overgrown Tomb and a Temple Garden at $5.. Llanowar Wastes is also only like a buck.

Cut Abzan Charm Grim Contest Magnigoth Treefolk and Dauntless Dourbark theyre bad

ToolmasterOfBrainerd on Why Rampant Growth is bad.

I play rampant growth because my edh deck is really casual and I had a copy on hand. It may not be good but it's at least on par with the Abzan Banner and 2-mana dorks that I also play.

Since your curve peaks at 4 mana, I recommend that you focus on 2-mana accelerants: Nature's Lore, Farseek, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Fellwar Stone instead of Abzan Banner, Ratchet Bomb (also destroy your board), Verdant Automaton (too slow), Arcbound Slith and Arcbound Worker (too slow). // Rishkar, Peema Renegade can put the first counter on creatures so you can proliferate them and tap them for mana when needed. Abzan Charm has great versatility. Odric, Lunarch Marshal has great synergy with Atraxa, Praetors' Voice. Chasm Skulker and Cathars' Crusade require quick answer or else they win you the game. Orzhov Advokist serves double duty: she deters opponents from attacking you if they accept the offer, and also put counters on your creatures for free. Lim-Dul's Vault is a great tutor. Utter End, Anguished Unmaking, Abzan Charm, Swan Song, Beast Within, Swords to Plowshares and a overloaded Cyclonic Rift are great for dealing with your opponents' threats. // In the card advantage department, Bred for the Hunt, Path of Discovery (also create counters), Shapers of Nature (also create counters), Zameck Guildmage and Etched Oracle are repeatable draw while Rishkar's Expertise, Prime Speaker Zegana, Painful Truths and the aforementioned Abzan Charm are 1-shot card draw. // I suggest you to replace Grasping Dunes, Ifnir Deadlands, Survivors' Encampment, Simic Guildgate, Tranquil Expanse and Deeproot Champion (almost all your deck are creatures) by Yavimaya Coast, Caves of Koilos, Exotic Orchard, Bountiful Promenade, Sea of Clouds, Morphic Pool, upping your land count to 37.

Well, just in my first few cards on my first page of inventory: Abandon Reason, Abjure, Abomination of Gudul, Absorb Vis, Abzan Banner, etc.

MoonageDaydreamer on Outlast Onslaught

Good day to you, good Pyrowolf,

I think you have some solid ideas. A lot of these cards seem like stand alone cards enhanced by Anafenza, which is always solid, but here are a couple cards that might go well with her +1/+1 counter love: Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit, because bolster is still solid, and Anafenza won't be weirded out at all by seeing her own ghost. Armament Corps, possibly. Avatar of the Resolute because why not? Crowned Ceratok, because all big guys like trample. Cruel Sadist, repeatable removal. Enduring Scalelord is mainly there for looks, but can be useful if your opponents lack flying. Juniper Order Ranger. Map the Wastes, for that mana ramp/bolster combo (but not a combo combo). Retribution of the Ancients, repeatable removal. Servant of the Scale, for when you want to make sweet, passionate love to counters. And I'd think he works real well with something like Sandsteppe Mastodon. Warden of the First Tree, one of my all-time favorite cards. Like Figure of Destiny, but not as creepy (or as good).

You should maybe try to utilize Anafenza's graveyard hate as well. Black loves to throw things in graveyards, and she would bounce them into exile. Standard discard effects might be nice, but try: Magister of Worth, although it would likely be condemnation if you've been exiling everything. Duress, nothing fancy, but a classic in my opinion. When you can utilize every usable part of your commander without having too much going on, you know you're heading in the right direction.

And here are some additional solid Abzan-colored cards and lands, too: Abzan Banner, it's in the name. Condemn. Command Tower, useful in any EDH deck except mono-colored. Duneblast, in theory, but it is a 7-drop :\ Beast Within, pretty slick instant-speed removal in green. Evolving Wilds. Farseek, multi-colored ramp that is unaffected by color identity. Golgari Rot Farm, solid if you're not trying to go bankrupt on the mana base. Korozda Guildmage, or similar mana sinks for all of that excessive mana you should have with how long you're enduring. Orzhov Basilica. Rampant Growth, solid, but just be looking for mana ramp. Sandsteppe Citadel, probably a good idea. Selesnya Sanctuary.

Pardon, but I think you could find some more useful/powerful cards than AEther Snap, Burst of Energy, and Burst of Strength. AEther Snap is pretty good, I feel like it'd be too counter-productive here.

Remember to keep an eye on draw cards, even stuff like Read the Bones can give you that needed bit of card advantage.

Lastly, your deck may be asking for quite a bit of time and effort to build up into a glorious threat. It would sure be a shame to see all of it go to waste when some plays Hour of Revelation or something like that. Board wipes are inevitable in EDH, but maybe try to find some remedy to that for this deck. Glaring Spotlight could maybe help a little.

I hope these are helpful, good luck!

If you aim to get cards out fast you need accelerators (obviously).The world of accelerators is vast, and it ranges from straight up direct mana accelerators like Azorius Signet or Abzan Banner to literal cost reducing ones like Cloud Key,and obviously the ones that directly put a card in play like Dramatic Entrance (even though that one's rubbish). I know this tip is very general, but you can search for suitable signets,banners or cost-reducing cards in Gatherer or magiccardsinfo
