You need to add some low end ramp here. You've got an average CMC of ~2.9 but only 3 pieces of ramp in the deck. Not to mention 30 lands is too low given that most of your lands will enter tapped. 30 lands works well when you have a bunch of shocks, ABURs and fetches, but here you're juts going to screw yourself of mana early game far too often. And for a voltron deck, early game is your friend.

I would up the land count to at least 33 and add in Birds of Paradise , Avacyn's Pilgrim , Llanowar Elves , Elvish Mystic , Talisman of Curiosity , Nature's Lore and Farseek .

Avacyn's Pilgrim or Llanowar Elves to replace Steve? I made a deck with 7 1cmc dorks and it's good to go

$600 is a lot of room for work! Sweet!

Okay, so I think you should try to get some good draw in here, and in abzan good cheap draw can be tough sometimes. Tymna the Weaver , Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip, Mindblade Render , and Tireless Tracker all do really well. Sylvan Library if you can fit it in is best.

To be more of a competitive deck, I would try to cut more of the high cmc cards and some more lands down to about 33, and then replace with more 1 drop mana producers. Fyndhorn Elves , Elvish Mystic , Avacyn's Pilgrim , Boreal Druid , and Deathrite Shaman . 2 drop Priest of Titania is also super sweet.

Instant speed interaction is really key to keep opponent's from winning, and to stop grave hate from shutting you out. Natural State , Nature's Claim , Assassin's Trophy , Abrupt Decay , and Path to Exile would be good additions.

If you aren't opposed to infinite combos (looks like you aren't) I would highly suggest Protean Hulk

Along the aggro theme, Triumph of the Hordes is a very strong finisher. Hope this all helps!

Hey, nice budget upgrade of the precon. Good work in progress :)

Birds and Smothering are very good choices for expensive price upgrades. Helm is fine too because you added Aurelia and Godo to give you a combo win. Omnath at $7 is kind of out of place because not playing many ways to take advantage of sacing Elementals. Rampaging does the same thing as Omnath for less than $1 and it has trample. Armada Wurm and/or End-Raze Forerunners each less than a $1 could replace Omnath and have more impact. Hornet Queen at $2 creates some nasty tokens.

Interesting choice for the other expensive price cards: Iroas, Panharmonicon and Splinter. There's nothing wrong with these cards, but I don't think they're upgrades that a budget version of the precon needs. The $20 from these three cards could be better used for land upgrades. $20 can get you the three Check lands, one Shock land as well as some other lands and these will help your deck much more.


In my opinion the upgrades that the precon needs the most are lands, tutors and ramp. I see that you're playing pretty much the stock manabase from the precon, but there's many good lands in the maybeboard. Are you in the process of getting the lands in the maybeboard? If so my advice is make them priority for upgrades.

Some budget cards to consider adding:

Lands

Tutors

Ramp

Other

  • Eldrazi Displacer : with colorless mana sources blink for Ghired and other creatures. Can protect Ghired, after he attacks, triggers, blink him out of combat.
  • Mirror Entity : busted with Atla Palani, Nest Tender since it can turn all your creatures into Eggs. Can activate it's ability for no mana making all your creatures 0/0s. They all die, each one cheating a creature from your library onto the battlefield. Entity is also a good card with tokens because until end of turn it can pump all your creatures/tokens to huge amounts depending on how much mana you can make.
  • Ogre Battledriver : repeatable pump and haste when creating tokens. Can be a win condition with Entity and Alta giving all the creatures/tokens you cheat onto the battlefield haste. Casting Ghired after getting Battledriver onto the battlefield can give an opponent a beating with haste; doing a combined 16 damage with Ghired and two 4/4 Rhinos.
  • Armada Wurm : creates a token with trample, good with blink. 10 power of trample for 6 mana.
  • Hornet Queen : creates nasty flying tokens, good with blink.

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Rugged Highlands
  • Blossoming Sands
  • Graypelt Refuge
  • Kazandu Refuge
  • Myriad Landscape
  • Sungrass Prairie
  • Emmara Tandris
  • Doomed Artisan
  • Full Flowering
  • Ghired's Belligerence
  • Cultivate
  • Slice in Twain
  • Aura Mutation
  • Growing Ranks
  • Flameshadow Conjuring
  • Seance
  • Omnath, Locus of Rage
  • Splinter Twin
  • Panharmonicon
  • Iroas, God of Victory

If you like some of these suggestions I offer more advice about these potential additions and the cards I'm suggesting to cut. Good luck with your deck.

Hey, good start for a budget deck. Nice Rhystic Study and Flooded Strand :)

Roon is the engine of the deck, but he's a five drop which makes the engine pretty slow without more ramp. Consider adding more low mana cost 1-3 CMC ramp?

Roon can benefit from cards that can untap a creature giving you more activations of his blink ability.

There's several budget lands to consider adding to upgrade the manabase.

Command Tower is a budget staple of multicolored decks. Dual lands that have interaction with basic lands are good when playing a lot of basic lands.

Budget tutors can help to search for an put a certain creature into your hand or onto the battlefield. These tutors let you play less high mana cost creatures instead use a tutor to search for one when you have to the mana to cast it.

If you like any of these suggestions then I offer more advice about what to cut. Good luck with your deck.

fair enough, I would be interested in a 1 cost green card that tapped for 1 blue or vise versa. Kind of like Avacyn's Pilgrim
