Burning-Tree Emissary Discussion

Burning-Tree Emissary + Cloud of Faeries (or similar) + Cloudstone Curio would work I suppose. Although without the combo pieces in hand both pieces are relatively dead draws.

I like Cloudstone Curio but without a haste enabler on the board its definitely weaker. I've replaced Erratic Portal for Cloudstone Curio as I do believe it is a better substitute for that spot

Always keep in mind: What does your deck want to do? How does it win?

I'm taking an educated guess with Ulasht, but I'm guessing what it wants is more creatures (especially ones of both colors), and it can win through either overrunning with lots of creatures or with a few really large ones that benefit from all the little ones (like Ulasht itself).

So, we cut things that don't help with this (and that aren't support such as ramp and removal). Some of my picks would include Burning-Tree Emissary, Young Pyromancer, Hidden Herd, Hidden Guerrillas, Gaea's Anthem, Mass Mutiny, Mizzix's Mastery...all these cards (and a good number of others currently in your list) are good cards...but are not really what your deck is doing. Pyromancer and Mastery want to be in decks that have far more spells, where Ulasht doesn't care about spells at all. Anthem and Emissary don't offer effects that make much difference in commander...commander is a format of haymakers, and they don't offer enough 'bang for your buck'. And the Hidden cards rely too much on your opponents for benefits.

I didn't take out enough for all the land -and- all the suggestions you might want to add, but you probably get the idea!

TraetusMN Sure very often the green mana of Burning-Tree Emissary will be wasted... Which leaves you with a 2/2 for 1 mana (you will use the red one). Not so horrible. But quite often you will cast it T2 -and that usually means GG-, with Reckless Bushwhacker, which you can't do without too I think. In no lords Goblins, you need these pseudo anthems effects, or you'll just get a bunch of 1/1, which won't be enough -Raging Goblin just doesn't give you enough.

Well first of all, Burning-Tree Emissary, and second, you need a new name. How about 'Animar: Creatures and Mana and Creatures and', 'It Costs... NOTHING', 'And Now All My Lands Are Untapped'. Something like that. You can steal one, if you wish.

zertsdfg Burning-Tree Emissary Isn't ideal in this deck because there will be times where the extra green mana will be wasted. Also the OP is playing only 1 drops.

hellakevin I really suggest having Skullcrack in the sideboard to deal with lifegain!

Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep Seems random. Have you tested like a 1 or 2 of Teetering Peaks ?

Thank you very much for the suggestions! I will definitely try the suggestions you made, although Chandra pushes the budget a little. I tested out Burning-Tree Emissary in a few matches before replacing it with more copies of Expedition Map as the green mana often felt like it was being wasted in many hands.

Chandra, Torch of Defiance seems like a great add to me. I also like Eidolon of the Great Revel, Ash Zealot in the SB for graveyard matches, Burning-Tree Emissary, and Stormbreath Dragon
