Acidic Slime Discussion

jdwork I found a compromise!

I decided that dorks were not the way to go. However, I had, and still have, over 30 spells that kill land, and that's a few more than I need. So I enacted the following revisions:

Still don't know what I can do without to include Acidic Slime, but the creature removal part of it is certainly appealing. Maybe you or someone else has a suggestion for that.

Thanks again!

Dear Kronhamilton

Golos, Tireless Pilgrim is my favorite commander, and I've been brewing around him ever since he was teased. Let me just say you've chosen an excellent commander.

(I’ve written quite a lot in an attempt to make a sort of guide for you, so if you want the short version, check out the Suggestions panel)

Golos can be tricky to build around since he can do literally anything pretty well. The easiest way to make an effective Golos deck is to lean into Golos's 7 Mana Rainbow Wheel Of Death. Before getting into that though, we need to cover some EDH deckbuilding basics.

I think the most useful advice I can give someone who is just beginning to explore the deck-building territory of EDH is to structure your deck and mind your Ratios. By this I mean it is useful to categorize the cards in your deck according to the role they fulfill.

We’ll begin by looking at some core categories that you’ll want to make your deck function effectively. Then I’ll present the Ratios (how many of each category of card) you will want to make a generic Golos deck function effectively. Next, I’ll include a detailed (but not totally complete, because I’d be here all day) catalogue of cards within some of those categories. I’ll also offer up some suggestions and input about some of your specific card choices. Lastly, since I’m about to unpack a lot of information, I will include a brief list of suggestions (see the bottom) for a generically good Golos ‘Shell’ that should be able to support most Golos strategies.

Categories

  • Draw

  • Ramp

  • Removal

  • Sweepers

  • Threats

  • Support

  • Land

Draw Show

Ramp Show

Removal Show

Sweepers Show

Threats Show

Support Show

Land Show

The art of Ratios is all about determining what combination of cards from each category makes your deck run the most smoothly.

Please note that these Ratios will not total to 99 cards. This is because you will invariably have extra flexibility to choose how your deck behaves even after establishing functional Ratios. Also keep in mind that although these Ratios do recommend you adhere to the minimum number of cards in each category, you still can choose which cards will fill those slots. The point is not to restrict your options, but instead to create a ‘Shell’ that is reliable enough to power your Threats cards, Support cards, and other cards. Whatever you do, make sure you have at least the minimum number of Draw and Ramp cards. THE MOST IMPORTANT CARDS IN THE DECK ARE DRAW AND RAMP!!!

While I ultimately suggest Ratios resembling the Basic Golos Shell, I will lay out the Ratios for several different Shells;

  • Template: a sort of baseline beginner’s guide which is commonly promoted as a place to start.

  • Basic Golos: a modified version of the Template that suites most Golos decks.

  • Control: a version tailored for a slower game with many Sweepers.

  • Aggro: a version designed to act quickly and deploy Threats before the opponents are prepared.

  • Big Mana: a version invested heavily into Ramp with the goal of deploying many end-game Threats.

  • Mega Mana: an even more extreme version of Big Mana with extremely expensive Threats.

Control Show

Aggro Show

Big Mana Show

Please remember that any suggestions I make are because I am trying to help. Ultimately, the choices you make with your deck are up to you, and I can only provide constructive criticism based on my own experience and opinions.

Good luck :)

Ratio Fixing

The most effective change to your deck would probably be adjusting the Ratios, especially with regard to your Draw cards. Applying the most basic Template Shell, you want to have at least these three quantities nailed down for a smoother and reasonably powerful deck;

  • Lands – 36 --> You have 40 Lands (Cut 4 Lands)

  • Ramp – 10 --> You have 5 true Ramp cards (Add 5 to 8 Ramp cards)

  • Draw – 10 --> You have 3 true Draw cards (Add 7 to 10 Draw cards)

What I counted in your deck Show

Mutate

Depending on how strong your Mutate subtheme is, some of your Mutate inclusions may act as engines. However, I must state that Mutate is a VERY risky and even fragile strategy since your Mutate ‘Pile’ of creatures will all be destroyed at once if your opponent uses a Removal spell or a Sweeper. For that reason, I recommend leaning out of the Mutate theme (unless the Mutate card is just straight-up insane, as in the example of Nethroi, Apex of Death).

With that said, playing a Mutate theme is your decision and I totally respect that and if you want to stick to a Mutate theme then by all means do so. I just want to be sure you know that Mutate is a risky strategy that you cannot depend on to fulfill your Ramp and Draw slots (so you’ll just need to supplement it with other cards).

Cut or Include?

At a glance your deck seems like something you have created using just your collection – and that’s great! However, if you want to incrementally upgrade your deck, then I recommend replacing most of the cards in your deck with more powerful options over time.

Here is a list of cards you should probably keep playing: - Barrier Breach (Removal, because exiling 3 enchantments is helpful in some situations)

In my opinion, there are other, better options for all of the other nonland cards in the deck, however it is up to you to decide on how you would like to proceed so I won’t intrude.

I strongly recommend cutting the Planeswalkers though – Calix, Destiny's Hand doesn’t seem to synergize much with the deck and I feel that Lukka, Coppercoat Outcast is not very potent.

Lands

Just as a recommendation, I would suggest the following spread of Basic Lands;

  • 8 Basic Forests

  • 3 of each other Basic Land

The remainder of your lands could be either more basics (which is really, really, risky if you don’t have tons of Ramp – think like 15 Ramp cards and about 12 Basic Forests) or Color Fixing Lands (see the Catalogue for more options). It is rough to have your lands enter the battlefield tapped, but unless you want to either lean into Green or spend a lot of money on lands, you will just have to live with it (I play around 5-10 tapped lands in a normal Golos deck and it isn’t really that bad).

In this section, I will list out an example of the Basic Golos Shell complete with the necessary Ratios and some examples of good/fun cards in each category. I’ll try to keep it relatively Budget sensitive and most of these cards will be relatively random – this won’t be based on any particular theme so don’t expect it to be optimal.

As a reminder:

Basic Golos Show

The Shell

Ramp – 12

Draw – 13

Removal – 7

Sweepers – 2

Threats – 12

Support – 7

Land – 36

Good Luck :)

jdwork Thank you for the comment!

Acidic Slime was the second to last card I cut from the deck to bring it down to 100. I absolutely want it in there, but I can't justify losing something else with a lower mana cost. Which leaves Feast of Worms, Frenzied Tilling, Volcanic Offering and Deus of Calamity as the only spells at 5 CMC, none of which I really want to trade out for the slime. Playtesting will decide if I'm wrong.

As for mana dorks, I also already had that thought, and your certainly in the right to mention them. By the same token, I've stared at this decklist forever, saying to myself "surely there's a way to fit a Sol Ring in here!" But I really haven't figured out how.

The deck is a slow, grinding victory sort of deck. It operates on resource denial, often at its own detriment. However, the land fetch and land recurrence keeps its own mana base alive, while the opponents have to keep rebuilding. And while it doesn't have an incredibly low curve, it also doesn't have any big-mana spells either.

So I'm torn. I feel like I have to have as much land destruction as is in there to do what it does. I don't know; which cards would you take out for dorks?

Might want Acidic Slime in there for targeted land destruction. Also Dust Bowl?? and maybe some mana dorks too. Looks fun!

Cloudstone Curio makes one drops have infinite ETB/cast triggers when Seton, Krosan Protector is out. (need 2 one drop creatures)

Devoted Druid, Temur Sabertooth, Leyline of Abundance, and Seton, Krosan Protector also creates infinite ETB/cast triggers on devoted druid.

Be careful when using Beast Whisperer, Glimpse of Nature, Guardian Project, and Vanquisher's Banner as you dont want to mill yourself.

Devoted Druid, Elvish Archdruid, Temur Sabertooth, Leyline of Abundance, and Seton, Krosan Protector is the standard infinite mana.

Stone-Seeder Hierophant and Elvish Pioneer also work really well with Cloudstone Curio and another 1 drop creature. This gets all lands into play untapped from your hand.

Note that after drawing your deck you will have some combination of Mobilize, Vitalize, and Benefactor's Draught. Playing all of the one-drops (and other low-cost minions) can help get you the mana to start going infinte.

lets use our deck now.

Gilt-Leaf Archdruid is a good first option, taking your opponents lands removes most of their options

Helix pinacle is noteable (you can max out to win by your next upkeep if everything else goes wrong)

We can pump up our creatures using Leyline of Abundance, giving creatures infinite +1 +1 counters

Thorn Mammoth and Vigor remove your opponents board. If they somehow have enough toughness to still be alive, you can use one of the infinite ETB combos.

Craterhoof Behemoth is the only card we have with haste, but it shouldnt matter as they wont have lands (Gilt-Leaf Archdruid), creatures (Thorn Mammoth + Vigor), artifacts or enchantments (Acidic Slime + Temur Sabertooth)

Greetings fellow Yarok player!

  1. Shriekmaw is a great utility spell for this deck.

  2. Birthing Pod and Prime Speaker Vannifar are great tutors for toolbox decks like this.

  3. It's a mistake to not include at least 1 of Reclamation Sage and Acidic Slime, but both are not needed.

  4. Bojuka Bog is a great way to have graveyard interaction in your deck without affecting consistency. Replace a Swamp and you won't notice any differences.

  5. Sire of Stagnation is straight gas and draws 8 cards off 1 opposing fetchland.

  6. Since most groups outlaw mass land destruction and lands are less prone to interaction, I'd switch the signets for more spell acceleration like Farseek, Rampant Growth, Cultivate, and Kodama's Reach.

  7. Wall of Blossoms, Ice-Fang Coatl, and Elvish Visionary complement Baleful Strix and give you the full suite of 2 mana cantrips. Bounce with Thassa, Deep-Dwelling for insane card advantage. Draw your entire deck via Deadeye Navigator and cast Thassa's Oracle to win on the spot.

If this is cEDH, why is your curve so high?

  1. Reclamation Sage is a lower CMC version of Acidic Slime.

  2. Sidisi, Undead Vizier is a lower CMC version of Rune-Scarred Demon.

  3. I see Deadeye Navigator and Thassa's Oracle, but no way to draw your entire deck or generate infinite mana. Wall of Blossoms, Ice-Fang Coatl, Elvish Visionary, and Baleful Strix can all draw your entire deck if you have infinite mana. They should be auto includes anyway.

  4. Wood Elves and Farhaven Elf type effects would help you accelerate your mana.

  5. With mana accelerators, you're missing Llanowar Elves, Fyndhorn Elves, Elvish Mystic, etc...

  6. I don't see Birthing Pod, Panharmonicon, Thassa, Deep-Dwelling, or Prime Speaker Vannifar, which would help you utilize the toolbox variant and further abuse ETB effects.

Good luck!

  1. Farhaven Elf and Yavimaya Dryad would benefit in this landfall type deck.

  2. Sire of Stagnation is straight gas and draws 8 cards off 1 opposing fetchland.

  3. Cards like Wall of Blossoms, Elvish Visionary, Baleful Strix, and Ice-Fang Coatl really help you chug through your deck.

  4. You should have at least 1 of Reclamation Sage and Acidic Slime.

  5. Panharmonicon and Thassa, Deep-Dwelling will help you further abuse ETB effects.
