So this looks like it used to be a brawl deck. If it wasn't, it might work better as one.

I don't know what exactly you are looking for. Based on your build, you seem rather new to the commander concept or you're on a budget.

You have very few mana rocks/dorks I can see you struggling with mana with those high CMC cards. Card advantage is difficult in those colors, but your commander should help with that. At the very least get a Sol Ring. Every commander deck should have one (unless you're playing french).

You say you want rage triggers, but I don't see much in the way for helping with that. Maybe something that pings/tims for direct damage like Vulshok Sorcerer or Acorn Catapult. There might be better options for this, but these are at the top of my head.

I have a lot of suggestions, but it would help if you gave me more direction.

The M10 rules change did not change "put into play" to "cast", it changed:

  • "play" to "cast" (except in case of lands)
  • "comes into play" to "enters the battlefield"
  • "put into play" to "put onto the battlefield"

The first is play as a verb, the action of playing a spell. The others are play as a noun, meaning the space of "in play". This is an important distinction to make in appreciating the change in the rules text.

Casting is a specific game action, and now play is a distinct one used for the act of playing lands. For something to be cast you must either cast it as normal or an ability must explicitly say "cast" as part of its resolution. If an ability does not say cast and uses language like "put onto the battlefield" or "create [a token]" or "copy [a spell]" then it's not cast and will not trigger abilities looking for a "cast" event.

Braids, Conjurer Adept puts permanents onto the battlefield, none of them are cast. Acorn Catapult creates creature tokens, they are not cast. Bonus Round's copies of spells are not cast.

Elite Arcanist on the other hand creates a copy of a card which you then cast. This is a case where an ability uses the cast action.

For your mana engine i would remove Planar Gate and replace it with a Worn Powerstone

also you don't have lots of card to ping your dino and activate enrage yourself, perhaps you can have a use of cards like Acorn Catapult, Caltrops or Outpost Siege ?

If you want to take the deck in the direction of a bit more artifact/piddly-damage-to-ones-own-creatures-matters synergy that adding the Aether Grid would suggest, I'd also look into Acorn Catapult, Staff of Nin, and maybe getting Akoum Hellkite in there.

I've enjoyed your deck so much that I've created a budget version here --a bit fewer anthems, a bit more artifacts/piddly damage floating around. Nice work!

RazortoothMtg on Question about Heart-Piercer Manticore

1 year ago

The rules for EDH/Commander state that a card's color identity is the combined colors of all symbols in it's mana cost and text box, as well as the little colored circle on the back of flip cards to the left of the type line. The manticore (and the other embalm/eternalize cards) simply make an off-color token and have no white color identity otherwise. Look at cards like Hunted Phantasm having a color identity and Acorn Catapult/Moonsilver Spear having colorless color identities.

Also, Hunted Troll from the same trend, Acorn Catapult, Genesis Chamber, Seed the Land.

Kamahl, Fist of Krosa can help to kill lands.
