Hey, interesting version of Atla, that's a lot of creatures.

Consider cutting a few of the least good creatures for more early game ramp?

Could also replace a few other big creatures for some enablers.

Nature's Lore and Farseek are land ramp spell upgrades for Explosive Vegetation and Cultivate because you have Savannah/Taiga/Garden/Ground and Farseek can get Plateau/Foundry. These two drop land ramp spells can be quicker ramp and they ramp with a dual land.


I don't think I've ever seen a manabase with Savannah/Taiga/Plateau, but also Guildgates... You could improve the manabase a lot. Some changes to consider:

Good luck with your deck.

Just as a starting point I would definitely run some more mana rocks, especially Sol Ring. It's almost always worth the $2-3. Also if you're willing to drop $4-5 Arcane Signet is worth it as well. You have a good amount of lands for what you're trying to do, but I would replace Mosswort Bridge and Secluded Steppe with basic lands. I think it'd be better to just have basics that come in untapped. I would also replace Naya Panorama with Myriad Landscape if you want a good budget fetch that gives you more value, and finally if you can swing it, I'd swap out either Blossoming Sands or Graypelt Refuge with a Sunpetal Grove for better value, and the other you could take out for Canopy Vista or just another basic. Basics aren't bad.

Also with all the 1/1's you're making, Skullclamp would give you a lot of value.

Those are just a few changes I'd make. Good deck. Hope this helps. (:

You have to many tap lands, Graypelt Refuge, Tranquil Expanse, Temple of Plenty, Selesnya Guildgate, Saltcrusted Steppe, Evolving Wilds, and Blossoming Sands just shouldn't be run. Use basics or use expensive duels that can enter untapped. I'd personally remove Scattered Groves, Opal Palace, Gavony Township, and Animal Sanctuary I find them to be slow and often don't return the value spent.

Just a note, one for one trades like Beast Within tend to be bad in commander. You also will probably want to run more one to two mana ramp cards like Avacyn's Pilgrim and Wild Growth.

Hey, nice budget upgrade of the precon. Good upgrade of Kiki.

Budget cards to consider adding:


Cards to consider cutting:


Examples of some changes to consider:

  • Jungle Shrine > Jungle Hollow
    I'm guessing you meant to type Shrine instead of Hollow since Hollow is not a legal card in Naya colors.

  • Breath of Fury or Zealous Conscripts > Burning Anger
    Fury or Conscripts are win condition combos with either Ghired or Kiki, they will have a lot more impact than Burning.

  • Quartzwood Crasher > Desolation Twin
    Crasher at five mana can be repeatable Dino tokens that can be 10/10s or higher that have trample. The 10/10 Eldrazi that Twin creates is not good enough for 10 mana.

  • Ogre Battledriver > Samut, Tyrant Smasher

  • Congregation at Dawn or Shared Summons > Vivien's Invocation
    Invocation at seven mana can miss in the top seven and not reveal a creature. Dawn at three mana or Summons at five don't miss.

Good luck with your deck.

Nice build. You have the Utopia Sprawls, which somewhat mitigates what I’m about to suggest, but I think an adjustment to the mana base could help improve consistency.

Depending on the budget you’ve assigned to this deck, either Windswept Heath or Temple Garden would be ideal. If not, then maybe a simple ETB:Tapped+bonus dual land like Blossoming Sands would work. Whichever you prefer, you’d simply remove 4 basic lands to slot them in. Either way, you’re just an inch closer to always having exactly the mana you need on the turn you need it.

Hey, good start.

Sol Ring, Command Tower and Arcane Signet are three staples in Commander that are within the budget here. Scion of the Ur-Dragon, Utvara Hellkite and Lathliss, Dragon Queen are Dragon upgrades. Dragon Tempest has powerful effects with Dragons. Elemental Bond is good repeatable draw with Dragons.

Ketria Triome and Raugrin Triome are the other two Triomes and Ketria is good in combination with Indatha Triome with Skyshroud Claim which can give you all five colors from two Triomes. Nature's Lore is another land ramp spell that can search for a Forest Triome or Forest Shock land. Crop Rotation is a land tutor for any land and puts the land onto the battlefield. Haven of the Spirit Dragon is another Rainbow land for Dragons.

Hey, good casual version of Gishath.

Even on a budget you can improve the manabase especially by adding some other lands that have interaction with the land ramp spells. Farseek and Skyshroud Claim are unique because they can search for a dual land with two or more different land types.

Glade and Vista are called Battle lands and are the better budget options because they have interaction with a lot of basic lands, only needing two of them for these lands to ETB untapped. These two lands could replace lands that always ETB tapped such as Blossoming Sands. Sheltered and Scattered are called Cycle lands and are simply upgrades for other lands that will always ETB tapped such as Kazandu Refuge.

Some other budget lands to consider adding:

Tower and Orchard are called Rainbow lands and are two of the best budget lands for mulitcolored Commander decks especially Tower it's a powerful land.


You're right ramp is very important with Gishath and one of the best budget mana dorks for ramp is Faeburrow Elder. It can tap for two mana (green and white) which is already good for a mana dork, but it can be better if you control a red permanent then it can tap for three mana (green, white and red). That's it for your deck, since it's only three colors, but for other decks especially five color if you also controlled a blue and a black permanent then Elder can tap for up to five mana (one of each color).

Dinos are fun and there's a new budget Dino in Ikoria who's powerful fun. Quartzwood Crasher is a five drop 6/6 with trample which are already good stats, but what makes it even better is it can repeatedly create huge Dino tokens. It creates a Dino token who has trample therefore Crasher along with the token makes each other Dino token that much more powerful. Since the more trample power you have on the battlefield the bigger the Dino token could be. Crasher triggers when any creature you control with trample does combat damage to a player meaning that itself doesn't have to attack to create a token.

Crasher's power level increases a lot when it has haste such as from Alpha, Huntmaster or Rhythm of the Wild. With haste as long as you do combat damage to a player with Crasher then you create at least a 6/6 Dino token which is potentially 12 trample power of Dinos for five mana. Many of the best Dinos have trample including Gishath and Ghalta as well as Regal and Carnage, etc.


Congregation at Dawn is a budget instant creature tutor that can get three different Dinos to setup the top of your library for when Gishath attacks. Which then lets you cheat those Dinos of your choice onto the battlefield. Fierce Empath is a not a Dino, but it can tutor for a six CMC or higher Dino and put it into your hand. It's good with Regal as another tutor that can get Regal. With Regal and minimum six lands on the battlefield you could cast Dawn before you cast Gishath and end up with a massive battlefield of Dinos of your choice.

Good luck with your deck.

Nice deck, but I have a few suggestions. Using Alseid of Life's Bounty for protecting your key creatures could be quite risky, since the protection can potentially cause your auras to fall off the creature. Instead, maybe try a creature with hexproof like Gladecover Scout? I know it isn’t an enchantment so won’t trigger constellation, but having a second creature to load auras onto might be a good idea. With all of your auras, Season of Growth might also be a nice include, as it will draw for every aura you play, and the scry can also be really useful. As an enchantment, it will even trigger constellation. Also, with regards to the mana base, while shock lands may be too expensive, maybe slightly cheaper options could be viable? I’d recommend either Fortified Village, Canopy Vista or Sunpetal Grove to replace the Blossoming Sands and maybe the Temple of Plenty, since the ability to play out on curve is quite important. Hopefully this is helpful to you and I wish you luck with the deck.
