Academy Rector

Creature — Human Cleric

When Academy Rector is put into a graveyard from the battlefield, you may exile it. If you do, search your library for an enchantment card, put that card onto the battlefield, then shuffle your library.

No Academy Rector ? High Market to sac rector and thief.

Seems kind of underpowered, even for a budget deck. Obviously, your Mana base wouldn't be great to begin with in a budget deck, but you lack ramp and card draw, both of which are essential to decks in EDH, especially in White. Whilst I profoundly disagree with the argument that White isn't very good on its own in EDH, it does have many problems in budget decks. I'd recommend you to filter out cards that are seemingly purposeless such as Wall of Omens or Eight-and-a-Half-Tails .

Furthermore, I find that your removal is barely acceptable considering that you're playing mono-White. Since you don't really have an aggro strategy, consider adding cards such as Land Tax , Smothering Tithe , Norn's Annex , Moat , et cetera. Maybe try to lean into a Proliferate strategy.

Cards such as Academy Rector , Karn Liberated Gideon, Ally of Zendikar and Ugin, the Spirit Dragon would greatly benefit your neutral game. Consider adding Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite , Pearl Medallion , Enlightened Tutor and Sword of Truth and Justice for general play as well. DEFINITELY add Thran Dynamo , Mana Crypt , Thran Temporal Gateway , Mana Vault and Metalworker to the deck as your ramp is not very good.

All in all, your concept for this deck seems interesting but lacks focus. I struggle to see how you could make a Superfriends deck on a budget, but keep on trying and you'll get there eventually.

P.S: I forgot to add Scroll Rack .

Why not Academy Rector up Impact Tremors for quick 2 card win at instant speed?

Jamirostyle on Atraxa, Praetors' Voice [Superfriends]

Thank you for support my petition for this brew! Now I can share some ideas I had for my Atraxa deck and maybe can help you.

Contagion Engine could be a nice answer against mini hordes and also indestructible creature using the double proliferate ability killing them slowly and pumping up your permanents.

For card draw, Rhystic Study , Phyrexian Arena and Toothy, Imaginary Friend are good refilling your hand during the game.

Some mana rocks I run in my deck are Gilded Lotus , Coalition Relic and Astral Cornucopia .

And for the SuperFriends team I will suggest Liliana, Dreadhorde General , Ajani Unyielding and Dovin Baan . First, Liliana allows us to create chump blockers and draw cards when they die or another creature of our own. This also is good using her -4 while we have on the board Academy Rector and Arena Rector and needless to say about her -9; Just brutal. Then Ajani can help us find more Suprefriends with his +2, exile some annoying creatures with his -3 and pumping up our board with his -9. And Finally, Dovin can silence creatures, draw cards for us and his ulti is just obscene as hell.

Nice catch! I was planning on putting a few walkers in the deck when I added the card but in the end I never did and it seems I forgot about Arena Rector . I choose not to run Academy Rector as they are a little too expensive and I didn't want to include too many cards with such a price tag, but I do agree the card would work great in the deck.

Instead of Arena Rector maybe run Academy Rector since you do not run any planeswalkers.

I really really like this deck and I want it. Any chance that you will sell it (prices are negotiable maximum $10.00)?

However: Blood Moon without basics and 6% deck being red feels like an accident ( Cursed Totem ) waiting to occur. I'm thinking 3 basics (plain island forest). If running blood moon, why not magus of the moon as well? If running Academy Rector , thoughts towards Overwhelming Splendor - it seems on-key?

GhostChieftain on Najeela's Hulk Pod Project (cEDH Primer)

In my hulk deck I really love having Academy Rector and Pattern of Rebirth . It just makes it so much easier for pod, eldritch evolution, or finale of devastation into rector into pattern to get hulk on board. Natural Order is also super good in mine because turning an elf into a hulk feels real nice.

All that being said, I have not played cEDH all that long and I am in a homebrew abzan hulkweaver deck so I am not super familiar with everything necessary to keep a najeela deck running smoothly.
