Il tuo mazzo necessita di un buon pacchetto di removal per far morire quante più creature possibili, in modo da rendere Kresh grosso, ed allo stesso tempo ti servono cose che diano evasion a kresh per fare in modo che riesca a colpire. Farò suggerimenti su cambi funzionali e cambi di budget, sia in più economico che in più costoso.

Valuta di trovare un posto per carte che diano colpo sicuro a Kresh, come:

Valuta di inserire qualche sacrifice outlet come (nella sezione terre ce ne sono altre molto forti):

Nella sezione terre ti consiglio:

Se con queste sostituzioni nella mana base finisci per avere più di quattro terre che producono , valuta di inserire al posto di una creatura ramp la Chromatic Lantern, che è stata ristampata da poco ed è scesa.

KingZamiel on Hymn of Darkness: Elenda EDH | *PRIMER*

Hey Daedalus19876! I hope you're doing well! No worries, life happens and such.

Anyways, personally I love the new Guilds set. So much so that I'm trying to put together a standard deck again (I haven't been keeping up with standard since the first Amonkhet set, sadly). Also there's no denying that there's phenomenal additions to edh, like Assassin's Trophy. That said, I saw very few cards that would be worthwhile to this deck. I'm just gonna assume that there'll be better game with the next set and Orzhov will shine once more.

Anywho, like lickitypikity suggested, Divine Visitation would definitely add some punch.

Another card that you might consider is Ritual of Soot. It's a little more limited than other board wipes, but it does leave Elenda unaffected. Great for token and weenie decks though!

Alternatively, there is Citywide Bust. It'll more than likely hit Elenda as well if she's powered up, but it's only 3 CMC.

Mausoleum Secrets is an interesting tutor card, and one I think is worth mentioning.

Honorable mentions:

Plaguecrafter. Maybe it can be a cheaper alternative to Barter in Blood?

Dawn of Hope. I know life gain is not that big in this deck but there should be enough there to make consistent use of the card draw. Plus it makes tokens so it's not completely useless otherwise.

As usual, I hope this helps some!

Hi bushido_man96,

Traveler's Amulet and Wanderer's Twig are very good in this format, I do use them frequently in $50 budget decks (example 2C Mardu Alesha, Boros' Crust.

Whip of Erebos is very important in this format, often because combos are less prevalent, and often you will be killed through having your life reduced to 0. Lifelink is powerful in $50 budget commander league. Also, it's an artifact so can avoid removal, plus it allows me to recur creatures like Fleshbag Marauder/Slum Reaper/Merciless Executioner/etc that I can't recur, to trigger my Glissa, the Traitor ability to return my artifacts. Sangromancer to can gain quite a bit of life in an Barter in Blood/Mutilate/Etc type situation.

I did opt-in things like Golgari Cluestone/Horizon Spellbomb/Etc because of draw or LTB triggers as well (on stuff like Mycosynth Wellspring for example. I thought I needed more tutors Razaketh's Rite/Diabolic Tutor but you might be right where I need more ramp now. I'll try and get some reps in, I have 4 $50 commanders now, so i usually randomly choose, but I can select, last season, and this season Glissa, the Traitor runs a 33% win ratio (in 4-player pods), so it is fairly consistent.

Graveborn Muse recently added has been doing tons of work for me, giving Bone Picker a chance now, really like the deathtouch.

Nice deck! You might consider some haste-enablers such as Anger, Bloodsworn Steward, Xenagos, God of Revels, Fervor, Concordant Crossroads, Mass Hysteria, Lightning Greaves, or Fires of Yavimaya to get huge amounts of burst damage with Prossh and OTK opponents out of nowhere. Also with the amount of tokens you generate, cards that have synergy with armies of tokens (e.g. Parallel Lives, Doubling Season, Overwhelming Stampede, Triumph of the Hordes, Harvest Season, and Second Harvest) could be very effective, especially if you area able to curve out with Parallel Lives or Doubling Season into Prossh the next turn. Also, cards that can turn your many tokens into mana could have a lot of potential as well. You've already included Cryptolith Rite and Growing Rites of Itlimoc , but the addition of Ashnod's Altar, Thermopod, Pawn of Ulamog Cards like Green Sun's Zenith, Chord of Calling, Heroic Intervention, Damnation, Crux of Fate, Sylvan Library, Vampiric Tutor and Demonic Tutor could provide the the deck with additional consistency, utility, and power. If you wnt to add another mana-doubling card, Mana Reflection would fill that role. It looks as if you have a bit of a 'sacrifice stuff' subtheme as well, so more cards to add for that could be Barter in Blood, Birthing Pod, Blood Divination Attrition, Awakening Zone, Bloodspore Thrinax, Disciple of Bolas, Eliminate the Competition, Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest, Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Sadistic Hypnotist, Goblin Bombardment, and Razaketh, the Foulblooded. Other considerations might be Sprouting Thrinax, Goblin Sharpshooter, Atarka, World Render, Grave Titan, Oracle of Mul Daya, Dragonlair Spider, Stalking Vengeance, Tempt with Vengeance, Xenagos, the Reveler, Poison-Tip Archer, Avenger of Zendikar, Fecundity, and Pitiless Plunderer. Those are just a few suggestions, and good luck with the deck!

Smelt, Dragon's Claw, and Destroy the Evidence all seem like rather weak includes.

Bloodflow Connoisseur and Barter in Blood might be decent includes for cheap.

Skull Storm upsets me. Thats way to much mana for a that kind of effect.

Board whips 4-5 mana. Half someones life isnt that hard or expensive Quietus Spike, Heartless Hidetsugu, Havoc Festival, and Raving Dead all do this for 6 or less. I get its a sorcery but eh... Do or Die would have been a far better reprint. That card is probably only going to be a Barter in Blood most of the time.

Looks fun, but dude... super cheap card draw w/ Kothophed (assuming you're playing in a group):
Innocent Blood
Smallpox
Death Cloud
Fleshbag Marauder
Merciless Executioner
Barter in Blood
Cards like Phyrexian Arena, Underworld Connections, and Ambition's Cost have a fair mana (and life) cost, and don't really shine here.

How about Barter in Blood? Also, I feel like your deck heavily relies on getting a card like Skullclamp or Harvester of Souls out because otherwise your impact is pretty minimal. Cards like Shambling Goblin need to cantrip or otherwise aren't doing anything. Also, maybe more cards along the lines of Lavaclaw Reaches, like Mutavault, that can be sacrificed if it becomes absolutely necessary.
