Dete on A Swarm of Humans (And other Stuff)

Afterlife is a really good removal for white so you might want to add it, Angelic Purge too.

Battle Screech , Captain's Call give you more of a swarm strategy without costing too much, i would add screech to the main.

Emerge Unscathed gets you 2 triggers costing only 1cc and protection, Test of Faith is a neat combat trick for killing pretty much any early creature and giving you a neat early clock as well as triggering and saving your cmdr, Dawn Charm , Benevolent Bodyguard , Standard Bearer give you protection to every creature and Palace Sentinels gives you a bit much needed card draw in white.

thats all i got.

A few options you have that could help are: Auriok Steelshaper , Oreskos Explorer and Shalai, Voice of Plenty . They aren't cats but, they would have good synergy with your overall deck construction.

Another great choice for a tribal deck is Coat of Arms .

It never hurts to have more creature tutors--especially in a tribal deck. A few you might consider are: Recruiter of the Guard , Eladamri's Call , Enlightened Tutor , Idyllic Tutor , Altar of Bone , Green Sun's Zenith , Sylvan Tutor and Summoner's Pact .

If you want to go faster you'll need to get more lands out fast and/or mana rocks. That's where green comes in. White has a few spells like Land Tax , Tithe and Oreskos Explorer but, green has stuff like: Burgeoning , Carpet of Flowers , Exploration Utopia Sprawl , Wild Growth , Land Grant , Crop Rotation , Sylvan Scrying , Azusa, Lost but Seeking , Birds of Paradise and Bloom Tender .

Other options for going faster are: Chrome Mox , Grim Monolith , Mana Crypt , Mana Vault , Mox Amber , Mox Diamond and Mox Opal .

Its also not a bad idea to toss in a few more instant-speed removal spells such as: Swords to Plowshares , Wear Away , Sundering Growth , Nature's Claim , Naturalize , Natural State , Dispatch , Disenchant , Afterlife , Beast Within , Crib Swap and Oblation .

Dete on Underworld Coinsmith Pauper Commander

5 months ago

you could use Conviction, Brilliant Halo, Gossamer Chains, Cage of Hands, Shackles and Mourning for repeatedly trigger Underworld Coinsmith.

Ashes to Ashes, Read the Bones, Night's Whisper, Sign in Blood, Angelic Purge, Afterlife, Snuff Out, Unmake, Pentarch Ward, Cho-Manno's Blessing, Blessing of Leeches are all really good and serve you as card draw/ protection or control.

maybe think on adding something like Pestilence or Shrivel/Nausea for boardwipes like effects.

Ruffigan on Defender of the Faith: Bastion Protector PDH

@Joker207755: As a Pauper EDH player of four years, a staff member of PDH Homebase, the creator of the most popular Pauper EDH Primer on the internet, and the admin of the Pauper EDH subreddit I am telling you with authority they are legal cards. Pauper EDH allows the use of a card that has ever been printed at common in the 99 (including MTGO) and any card ever printed at uncommon as the commander (including MTGO). Gatherer is a useful tool but does not include every printing, as I showed with Bastion Protector in the Legendary Cube. Afterlife was printed at common in Vintage Masters on MTGO. Anyone telling you they are not legal to play at your LGS in Pauper EDH is misinformed.

I would recommend Dwarven Recruiter. It is absolutely NUTS with Depala.

I also noticed that a lot of your dwarves have very little impact on the game state, so I would recommend some dwarves like Dwarven Miner, Dwarven Blastminer, Dwarven Bloodboiler, Master Trinketeer, Toolcraft Exemplar, Restoration Specialist and Bloodfire Dwarf.

Also, Lightning Bolt and Lightning Helix are not particularly good in EDH, I would recommend some other removal like Crib Swap and Afterlife.

Finally, I would recommend Karmic Justice as another way of protecting from Vandalblast.

A little late to the party, but I like that Afterlife is a throwback to Afterlife flavor wise.

I really like your deck and admire your desire to make inexpensive edh decks. That being said I do believe there are some ways you could improve this deck without breaking the budget.

While you do have plenty of board wipe effects I notice that you only have a few single target removal spells. Board wipes are great but the problem is the fact that they are sorcery speed. The ability to react on your opponents turn is invaluable so I would highly recommend adding one or two more instant speed removal spells. Some notable ones would be

I also think there are some counterspell's you would be better off for running that are pretty cheap.

  • Sinister Sabotage is basically a Cancel with upside and still pretty cheap.
  • Rewind is almost free in the late game.
  • Foil is a budget Force of Will that would fit great in your deck given your high island count.
  • Arcane Denial is just a solid counter spell in EDH since it replaces itself and the advantage it gives your opponent is mitigated by the multiplayer format.
  • I would also recommend running Forbid since you seem to draw so many cards but this one is a little more pricey.
Of all your counterspells I do believe that any of these would be better than Cancel,Mana Leak, or Spell Pierce

The only other general improvement I would recommend would be try to add some dual lands. Even if they come into play tapped, dual lands do wonders to help a deck perform at its best. Some really budget ones I'd recommend are.

And since you do have such a robust instant package I would also recommend considering running Tidespout Tyrant as another finisher type card.

I really do like your deck and what you have made so far, but I would like you to at least consider these options to further improve your deck.
