Benefactor's Draught Discussion

awalloftext on Gahiji: Forever War

Marvell - Great idea! Knight of the Reliquary makes running them even more appealing. Will do a pass with both Strip Mine and Homeward Path at some point and see if I can still effectively have all the colors I need with that many colorless lands.

I recently took out Benefactor's Draught and replaced it with Beast Within. Draught was fun, but hard to get full value out of - it "worked" maybe 25% of the time I drew it, but otherwise was a glorified cycling card.

Did you consider Elite Arcanist?

So much synergy with the deck, especially things like Benefactor's Draught and Dramatic Reversal

And how about Amulet of Vigor? Good with both commanders :)

Azdranax on Derevi, check this out!

Based on his abilities, Derevi is at his best in a stax/prison-type build, with you abusing your opponents with options like, Authority of the Consuls, Stasis, Winter Orb, Static Orb, Meekstone, Blind Obedience, Kismet, Vitalize, Benefactor's Draught, Always Watching , Brave the Sands and other similar low-cost options that create a decided board advantage for you. Using lots of mana dorks with a well-timed Intruder Alarm would also fit, as the more creatures you have in play, the more you will benefit. Adding a Luminarch Ascension to really benefit off the board prison stalling to create 4/4 angel finishers is another option. Those are just a few ideas - good luck with your build.

Skovtrolden on Ramostly wanna cast spells

Green is an essential color (this was actually a Riku deck before Commander 2017 came out), as green give room for things like Forgotten Ancient, Oracle of Mul Daya, and the single best cantrip of the deck, Benefactor's Draught.

The upside about Ramos is that he costs no colors to play, so it's really easy to play him, and with the right mana fix (which commander have tons of), it's also easy to get all colors represented - plus Ramos got mega-prowess. If I should cut green, i would probably end up using Melek, Izzet Paragon as commander instead

I never took out Guttersnipe either, just changed the version i think?

dcoffin on Selvala Brostorm

Suggestions on delaying a win until turn 6? So I can basically drop her and go off.

I made a few changes to my version to help with that..

Included Thousand-Year Elixir (removed Benefactor's Draught) to kick her off as soon as I drop her on turn 6

Steely Resolve in, Carpet of Flowers out (can always name 'Scout' so not everyone benefits) to protect her

Instill Energy in, Scroll Rack out (kick her off as soon as she gets in)

Lightning Greaves in, Deglamer out (this one hurts, but I can't think of anything else to remove) to again, protect Selvala, Heart of the Wilds and give her haste when she drops

Other options:

Lifeforce to deal with black removal (use is little too narrow..)

Asceticism is sweet, but kinda pricy CMC wise to get out quickly

Another option, assuming I have the cards in hand, is dropping her early, and doing the old destroy everyone's permanents with the Staff of Domination Beast Within, Somberwald Stag, Eternal Witness and Temur Sabertooth combo - then just wait until turn 6 (not very nice, but hey)

Any other thoughts?

goblinguiderevealpls on conspiracy: token swarm/spells HYBRID goblin combo

also the biggest difference i noticed upgrading from krenko would probably be that green opens up a ton of card draw spells that can be conspired, and cards like Harmonize or Benefactor's Draught draw much more cards than Cathartic Reunion, due the discard being very high cost when convoked, but as im sure you know, mono red is very lacking in card draw

+1 from me. good list. Copperhorn Scout and Skyshroud Poacher would be useful in this list in helping achieve hide tide mana. Scorched Ruins is like Cradle/Nykthos in mana production. With Deserted Temple it's 7 colorless. Benefactor's Draught should be in the main. Also, Krosan Grip. There are artifacts and enchantment that wreck this strategy. Liking the idea of Winter Orb thats a dirty stax tax that your deck plays around well.

Normally Seton is the go to Druid Commander because you can play cards like Paradox Engine, Mobilize, Benefactor's Draught, and Vitalize + Vanquisher's Banner, Zendikar Resurgent, or Primordial Sage to basically play their whole deck and win on the spot. In an Omnath deck though you want alot of mana doubling effects like Mana Reflection, Gauntlet of Power, Extraplanar Lens, Caged Sun, and Heartbeat of Spring to really make him big along with some mana sinks like Helix Pinnacle or Eldrazi to win.
