Might want to consider Aluren since the deck is so close to the ground.

Spirits on Arahbo, Xenagos... for Cats EDH

2 days ago

Ok, so lost to Tolsimir, Friend to Wolves, not awesome, he really matches well with the fight though. I did manage to win all the other rounds, but seeded low right off the start, so didn't face too many difficult decks.

New strategy:

Switch Spike Feeder to Heliod, Sun-Crowned + Walking Ballista line that has a win-con instead of just infinite life, which is useless. This combo is CMC9 so it's not functional without further rework of the mana ramping. Can break it up, CMC3 for Heliod, Sun-Crowned and then CMC4 + CMC2 for Walking Ballista and Lifelink, but thats still CMC6.

Infect will still be line 1, refine some synergy around that.

Add more fast mana like Lotus Petal. Add Swiftfoot Boots or Lightning Greaves back to have some synergy with Puresteel Paladin. Figure out something there. Have to ramp more.

Synergize the tutors with Walking Ballista. Finale of Devastation is probably wrong now. Green Sun's Zenith still is CMC1 ramp for Dryad Arbor. Re-audit each cat.

Add infinite draw combos with The Great Henge and cats, likely Whitemane Lion + Aluren but there must be others. Fleetfoot Panther isn't too exciting, but we'll see, there are a few other cats like Fleetfoot Panther, only take on cats that don't suck as well.

Have to find a way to build combos with a cat, need a T1 solution? in selesnya? I don't want to take it Stax, would rather figure out how to stay combo.

I can't see any equipment changes other than the boots coming back in. Greater Good might come out if no combos with it, but I do like it for the draw, so maybe not. I've been looking at Rafiq of the Many and Uril, the Miststalker but don't see that as the right way to go, think the equipment package is correct. Sword of Feast and Famine still presents the challenge with Pro-green, but none of the other swords give me pro-black without pro-white/pro-green that are any good.

Need to get creative, might start a Arahbo, Roar of the World discord, hmm, need to brainstorm. We need some good white cards in commander, and some really high powered cats. Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist and Leonin Relic-Warder the only really functionally played cats.

Thats the plan, lots of thinking and building synergies to work through. I'm playing it as is again (no Heliod and Ballista) this weekend again to try and get an evaluation of what is working. Strengthen the infect a bit too.

Xephon_ on Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath (w/Primer)

Why be overly complicated when you can just play Aluren ? Once Aluren is on the battlefield, cast Uro, let his ETB resolve, let his sacrifice trigger resolve, put him back to the command zone, and repeat. You get to draw your whole deck, gain a bunch of life, and put all (or nearly all) of your lands onto the battlefield. Not only that, but it's at instant speed!

Good deck though, just swap out one card for this for redundancy.

Some notable standouts from Theros that I will be testing:

  • Destiny Spinner - Great stats, stax, and active ability for us. Protects our creatures and Aluren . The active ability also has great synergy with the deck. A step up from an already good cards that I was considering like Prowling Serpopard .

  • Nylea, Keen-Eyed - I mean, look at it. Creature discounts and an active that wins us the game if we get infinite mana. This one gets me the most excited.

  • Heliod, Sun-Crowned - Opens up a 2-card infinite damage combo with Walking Ballista . With how many creature tutors we run this is not hard to obtain at all.

  • Overall, these are some exciting cards that should spice up the deck quite a bit.

    New favorite combo is Aluren + Grinning Ignus . I'm using it to fuel a giant Hurricane or Squall Line as a finisher for Gallia of the Endless Dance satyr tribal.

    The two ways you can build a casual EDH deck are A: Play a handful of very broken cards/combos to enable jank and B: Play a pile of generically good, interactive magic cards. Dinos should probably look more like the former, while the Blightsteel/Eldrazi plan is going to lead to the latter. Case in point, right now I'm building Satyr tribal. Cheap creatures aren't great, but with Aluren , it's not so hard to go off. I'm not exactly sure how that would look for a dino deck, since most people choose Gishath, Sun's Avatar , but I can tell you that activating Mirror Entity 's ability for X=0, turning all your creatures into 0/0 "Eggs" is gas.

    Sachora, Nature's Striving 

    Legendary Enchantment Creature — Demigod

    Whenever ~ attacks, untap target attacking creature you control and put a +1/+1 counter on it.


    3-colored gods seem antithetical to the devotion theme, but maybe something like this could work.

    Create a multicolored card that changes the way you cast spells. Something that would fit in with Aluren , Omniscience , and Fires of Invention .

    multimedia on Chulane, teller of tales

    1 month ago

    Hey, well made for your first Commander deck. Nice Aluren :)

    You forgot Plains in the manabase? I suggest cutting 3x Forest and 2x Island for 5x Plains. This will give you 15 white sources in the manabase which is my opinion the lowest amount of sources to have for a color. Another option is to add more lands that can Fetch or make white mana: Bant Panorama , Ash Barrens , Prairie Stream are other budget playable lands. Whatever you decide my advice is play at least 2x basic Plains.

    Whitemane Lion is excellent with Chulane since it can bounce itself back to your hand. It has flash which lets you trigger Chulane on an your opponents turns. Cast Whitemane with Aluren for infinite creature casts which with Chulane results in infinite draw/putting all lands from your hand onto the battlefield.

    Eladamri's Call is an excellent creature tutor, among the best in Commander. Neoform is another great tutor, sac a creature you control to tutor for another and put it onto the battlefield. Swords to Plowshares and Beast Within are staple instant removal spells in Commander. Exiling any creature for one mana is very good. Destroying any permanent, includes a land, is versatile in Commander.

    Eternal Witness is a staple green card for recursion in Commander because it can recur any one card includes a land. Guardian Project and Beast Whisperer are other sources of repeatable draw with creatures. On cast with Whisperer and ETB with Project. These can be backup repeatable draw sources if Chulane gets disrupted.

    Cards to consider cutting:

    • Overbeing of Myth
    • Karametra, God of Harvests
    • Kruphix, God of Horizons
    • Agent of Treachery
    • Tishana, Voice of Thunder
    • Avatar of Growth
    • Angel of the Dire Hour
    • Hour of Eternity
    • Forgotten Creation
    • Primordial Hydra

    The majority of these suggested cuts are high CMC creatures who don't interact with Aluren and some of them are five drops. My advice is not to play a lot of five drops because you already have the four five drops you want to play more than others: Chulane, Tatyova, Crawler, Muse. These five drops are also better than all the six drops therefore you could, cut all the six drops too.

    I offer more advice. Good luck with your deck.
