what do u think about Rakshasa Deathdealer as a mutate target? I also had some loose thoughts about cards like Fleecemane Lion with Outlast Abzan Falconer (but those are humans... scratch that thought)

A few more suggestions. Looking at the +1/+1 counters, Mer-Ek Nightblade, Abzan Battle Priest, Abzan Falconer and Ainok Bond-Kin all see

I have replaced Herald of Secret Streams with Abzan Falconer, which lowered the average converted mana cost of this deck from 3.63 to 3.62, and also because flying is more versatile than is unblockability.

hejtmane, that sounds to me like another point in favor of Abzan Falconer; it will not be as major of a target of removal spells as will be Herald of Secret Streams, so I thank you for that advice.

DemonDragonJ on Herald of Secret Streams or ...

In my Atraxa EDH deck, I have Herald of Secret Streams, because of how awesome that card is, but I am considering replacing it with Abzan Falconer, which I actually had in that deck before I replaced it with Merfolk Skydiver.

Being unblockable is very awesome, but the falconer has a lower mana cost than does the herald, it can put a +1/+1 counter on itself, and flying is usually more versatile than is unblockability (i.e., it has both offensive and defensive uses, whereas unblockability has only offensive uses), so such a replacement does seem to be very appealing.

What does everyone else say about this? Should I replace Herald of Secret Streams with Abzan Falconer?

On Thin Ice doesn't work for this deck, as it requires a snow-land to enchant, and your deck doesn't run any (and they will increase the cost quite a bit). If you don't have a Coat of Arms already, I would drop it for other things. It's a nice card, but will benefit other tribal strategies and is pretty expensive overall - Door of Destinies might be a better option. Sigarda, Heron's Grace is not actually in your list, so you'll need to drop a card and put her in. Make sure to type * CMDR * (no spaces) after the card name to show her as the commander. I would look for some ways to push damage through, like adding some equipment that gives trample Ring of Kalonia or Loxodon Warhammer come to mind. Skyblinder Staff makes any of your flying creatures blockable only by creatures with Reach, which is a pretty powerful effect, with a flying commander. Champion of Lambholt can quickly give you an army of unblockable creatures. Dictate of Heliod is another option for an anthem. I think Elder Cathar may be an underperformer here and better replaced with another creature. Maybe Juniper Order Ranger, Abzan Falconer, Aegis of the Gods, Baird, Steward of Argive, Goldnight Commander, Karametra's Acolyte, Krosan Restorer, Tuskguard Captain, Wild Beastmaster or Yisan, the Wanderer Bard. Good luck, and let me know if there are any specific questions you have.

ShreddedByCrows on Offenza is the Best Defenza

Lots of subthemes you got there, that's some interesting challenge. All in all, you're running way too many high-costed cards for a Commander that generally revolves around more of an aggressive strategy. I'll further provide you a personalized list of adjustments, trying my best to keep it at the lowest budget as possible.

Very first thing, 37 lands is too much for an Anafenza deck imo. You can easily go down to 35/34 in order to feel more proactive. That being said, the mana base of your decklist is pretty unstable, and you'll need better mana rocks, around 5/6 good rocks should do it helping you stabilizing.

The second thing to bring up is that you play loads and loads of creatures with actually specific abilities that don't always combine altogether well. Like, for example, in which way would Slimefoot, the Stowaway help Anafenza, the Foremost being consistent? My answer, without another kind of appreciation than logic: not any single one. If you need cheap legendary to keep it up with your theme, there are better options, but remind that this was only a little example.

Finally, you lack reactivity because of very few instant/flash spells. It's not as necessary as some think, but still have a way to protect dutifully your creatures is a key for aggro/midrange decks in EDH. Being able to answer what your opponents bring up to the tape is moreover essential, and I don't see enough removals/tricks in there.

So, let's take a closer look from now on. I'll make some different categories starting with the cuts to make it easier to read.

1.) Back to 100 cards:

2.) Cheap Improvements:

2.1.) Mana Rocks:

2.2.) More removals:

Those are the classical ones you surely know. They are easily affordable and would give your deck a small lift at controlling the board state.

2.3.) Better Legendaries:

  • Mikaeus, the Lunarch > not the cheapest already, but really effective, almost a staple for your deck style

  • Hope of Ghirapur > underrated card, does a lot, insane with recursion to lock down a combo player at low cost

  • Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit > certainly a staple / and somewhat a reason to get rid of the token subtheme which is maybe a bit too much

  • Syr Faren, the Hengehammer > also certainly a staple / aggressive, good interactions with Anafenza, better than lords already in your deck

  • Kethis, the Hidden Hand > Yawgmoth's Will for legendaries? I'll take that. It could also be a nice alternative commander when you face more control-ish decks you're stuck against, enabling you to have an efficient late game on its own once made your commander.

  • Mangara of Corondor > Legendary creature which works as a nonsituational removal. Really good. Even if you can't always activate it when it hits the table, your opponents have to get rid of it using their hand resources and you make 1 for 1.

  • Masako the Humorless > Underplayed card / can be a game-changer / and it's a legendary creature.

2.4.) Voltron Outlet:

2.5.) Other cool cards to look at:

3.) Medium Budget Improvements:

3.1.) Mana Rocks:

3.2.) Even more removals:

3.3.) Legendaries' Staples:

3.4.) Neverending Voltron Outlet:

  • Konda's Banner > Yeh, it's a little bit expensive money speaking, but it does everything you're searching for, like a bridge between your Cats, your legends and your Voltron strategy.

  • Skullclamp > staple

3.5.) Cool cards:

4.) Expensive Improvements:

5.) Some other cards you could try (which I mostly haven't, or for which I have a doubt about their efficiency):

HalbrechtHalbrecht on Kenrith +1/+1 Counters/Life

5 months ago

Hey, thanks for the +1 on my deck! I +1'ed you back. :)

A couple thoughts: First, I suggest that you more clearly define what you mean by budget, as it's different for everyone. Some people mean no one card being over a dollar, some mean nothing over $10, while others are fine buying one $50 card as long as the total budget for the deck isn't more than $100, etc.

On that note, you currently have 3 creatures — Abzan Falconer , Sapphire Drake , and Skatewing Spy — that grant flying. Since this buff doesn't stack, it would feel bad to draw more than one at a time. Instead, I'd recommend keeping just one of them (probably the Falconer, as he's the most cost-efficient) and replacing the other two with creature tutors, such as Green Sun's Zenith and Chord of Calling . I consider both of those budget, at about $5 to $7 each (T/O pricing puts them higher than that, but they can be found on TCGPlayer for that price). These essentially become copies 2 and 3 of ALL your creatures, so you can go grab whatever team-wide buff is most relevant at the time — ramp from Rishkar, trample from Zegana, etc.
