Hey, you're welcome :)

What's the max budget you have to make card upgrades? When you finish making upgrades what price range can you have for total deck cost? The precon for example at $60 is low and I would hope you could afford at least $50 for upgrades. If you can afford more expensive price cards then my card suggestions will be different then if you can't. Smothering Tithe and Birds of Paradise for example are very good cards for ramp, but they might be too expensive for the budget.

What advice about upgrades would you like?

Some cards from the precon that can be cut since they're not as good as others or don't have good enough synergy with Ghired:

This looks like a fun deck. My only suggestion would be to work on the mana base a bit. For example, there's really no reason to be running Tranquil Expanse, a tapland with no upside. There are a lot of replacements such as Temple of Plenty for scry, Scattered Groves for fetching and cycling, or even Graypelt Refuge or Blossoming Sands for life gain. You could also look at bounce lands such as Selesnya Sanctuary, or filter lands such as Sungrass Prairie. Those are just the WG ones, but there are WU and UG equivalents for most of those dual lands.

Some other cool lands are: Treva's Ruins (a good replacement for Seaside Citadel), Soldevi Excavations (scrying for 1 generic), Halimar Depths, and Mistveil Plains (return card from graveyard and then tutor for it).

So I was thinking about this deck a little further, and I had a couple other thoughts:


MANA BASE — Your curve is too high to be running so few lands. I ran a few playtests of this deck against a couple different decks, and I found that it's imperative you get Regal Caracal out. That's always what won me the game (or lost me the game if I couldn't). But in several games, I was mana screwed for too many turns. In one game, I was sitting with 3 lands and a Bird for 2-3 turns before I finally drew another Bird, then had to wait another turn to use it. So I'd recommend adding at least 3 more lands.

You probably have already thought of this, but in case not, you'll definitely want better lands than guildgates. Even Blossoming Sands is better than those, since it gains you a life. But I'd recommend Sunpetal Grove and of course Temple Garden if you don't mind spending the $$. If you're worried about being mana flooded, then try Scattered Groves .


CARDS TO CUT — Other than creating tokens for Anointed Procession, Oketra has no synergy with your deck, and it's competing with other much more important 4-drops. I would cut these for 3 more lands.

Creeping Renaissance isn't Piorneer legal, sadly, so it has to be cut. But thankfully, cutting it helps lower your curve, and it won't compete with Regal Caracal for the 5-drop slot.

Finally, I don't love Watchers of the Dead mainboard. Perhaps sideboard? I'd much rather have 2x more Metallic Mimics.


TL;DR — I'd move Watchers of the Dead to the sideboard, and cut Creeping Renaissance and Oketra completely. In their place, add 2x more Mimics and 4-5 more lands. Also replace your current tapped lands with better duals. You'll still have 1-2 more slots to fill. Some suggestions:

There's also always Ajani planeswalkers to consider. Adversary of Tyrants or Strength of the Pride both might be fun!

You might also consider Prowling Serpopard and either Enlightened Ascetic or Felidar Cub for the sideboard.

you can replace Explosive Vegetation with Circuitous Route , and replace Blossoming Sands and Jungle Hollow for guild gates that can be more effective to ramp with the aforementioned Circuitous Route . for this 3-color deck, Golgari Guildgate , Selesnya Guildgate and Orzhov Guildgate .

So I was looking at your stats and it says you have 62 cards. I'm not 100% on the rules but 60 is pretty standard. My advise is to drop 1 Bloodthirsty Aerialist and 1 Aid the Fallen IMO; if this is the build you stick with.

If you add a splash of green I'd build the land base like so: 1 forest, 8 plains, 6 swamps, 4 scoured barrens, 2 Jungle Hollow , and 1 Blossoming Sands

Blue_Flame Thanks for the upvote! I was glad I found Folk Medicine too, it can really end up being a blowout against a lot of aggro decks.

As far as Evolving Wilds and Ash Barrens go, I see your point. I might rather just play some Blossoming Sands instead so I can gain a little bit more life and even gain some value with Selesnya Sanctuary returning them to my hand if I get desperate. Is there a reason I’d want either of the cards you mentioned over Blossoming Sands ?

And great point about Electrickery , I’ll definitely look into some sideboard options for that. I do notice that it would only affect Squadron Hawk and Elvish Visionary (which I don’t really care about dying, so I’m not sure if it would be that devastating. But I’ll definitely take another look at the sideboard.

Thanks again for the suggestions!

Hey Miggsy, my suggestions are:

I think that the list can be like that:

22 Lands:

Appart of this, note that in the sideboard there are cards that aren't legal in standard: Elspeth, Knight-Errant , Hour of Reckoning and Scatter the Seeds . That cards where reprinted recently, but aren't legal in standard because are from adittional products.

I hope that this helped you,
