Astral Cornucopia Discussion
6 days ago
Vorel of the Hull Clade is interesting commander, much different from Zegana (though Zegana obviously fits the bill in the 99 of a Vorel deck, since you can double her counters before her draw ability resolves and double your card drawing).
From my view, Vorel in a control deck works with non-creature cards with counters that stifle the opponents, while developing a huge threat with his ability. For example, Astral Cornucopia is a great budget card for Vorel, while something like Mind Over Matter is a game-winner with the commander, combined with Otherworld Atlas to draw an infinite number of cards.
I personally feel that Vorel is a bit more restrictive than Zegana, since you have to play cards that work specifically with him, but is still a nice commander. Additionally, his abilities lead naturally towards infinite combos, which I am personally not a fan of.
Tl;dr: He is fine.

Aight, the big question- are you an aggro deck that combos out ral zarek? Are you U/R midrange? Are you a control deck that just repeat ults ral and hits with an Invisible Stalker?
At the moment you've got the kind of low cost instants and sorceries that speak to a Stormchaser Mage tribal deck, but the components can be swapped around in that to do a lot of cool things.
You can put together a proleferate list with Thrummingbird/Tezzeret's Gambit/Skyship Plunderer with Cloudfin Raptor,Astral Cornucopia,Braid of Fire and other shenanigans. Ulting planeswalkers every turn is a good way to win.
You could even build a true Fiery Gambit deck where you just pray and flip coins.
Ther big thing is to look at the restof the deck that isn't Ral and decide what the plan to support him is. Is it all counterspells? Multiple mana generating artifacts that abuse his +1? Burn that threatens his -2?

If you have the feeling that you are facing a lot of indestructible creatures, you can consider Soul-Scar Mage. It's just a one drop, so not that impactful, but you can see it as a spell that says: "Your next spell has wither" or something like that. It also works with the damage from your commander, since it triggers on non-combat-damage.
I would also add Comet Storm to the main board, it is in my opinion one of the best X burn spells to target multiple targets with. I think it's better than Banefire and Burn from Within, not considering the niche interaction, where the additional effects these spells bring with them actually matter. They are definately good too, but if you want to kill multiple people in one swing, there are few burn spells better than Comet Storm.
Why do you play Survival Cache, for the card draw? Thats a card you could easily swap out i think.
Also, I would play the big mana rocks, like Worn Powerstone and Thran Dynamo. You're gonna need a lot of mana for those X-spells ;-) Maybe think about a package of Neheb, the Eternal with Astral Cornucopia and Everflowing Chalice

Glad you love it!
I used to run both Everflowing Chalice and Astral Cornucopia but found them to be to slow and lacking in synergy. If I cast either of them I need to have Atraxa out to pump them or I need to spend a lot of mana. I've found Gyre Sage and Crystalline Crawler to be more cost effective as they are cheap, produce mana, can be pumped by anything that gives +1/+1's, and give me something to swing/block with.
Thank you for the suggestions and comment!

More recently, played a super gross hand with this deck, which was an iffy keep. Grossness went like this: T1: basic land, Sol Ring. T2: Astral Cornucopia, emeria. T3: everyone mostly playing nice, Athreos, God of Passage, swamp. T4: plains (people have all played one creature, two were commanders) - Fleshbag Marauder. Trigger - Golgari player, graveyard, or hand. Hand. T5: Golgari spits out four or five creatures, next player declines, third player brings in a fattie with several tokens Archfiend of Depravity. Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth Hi. Vedalken Orrery. Sometime before my next turn, Fleshbag Marauder appeared briefly again. T6: Sheoldred, Whispering One. Opponents start to get upset with the Golgari player. Karmic Guide to Fleshbag Marauder one more time before my creatures were killed. T7: Living Death, repeat. Swing at player 2 for all but his last life. Why? Now I get for sure creature return to my hand (you cannot pay more life than you have). Thoroughly frustrating for opponents. I'm going to try to get more forced graveyard recursions in the deck too.

dhynes1 I actually do have one! And I already have Dramatic Reversal in the deck. I can do the one that you suggested, or I can just have Filigree Sages out with Astral Cornucopia out with at least 4 counters on it. That is the less likely one, but still another possibility.
