Caves of Koilos Discussion
1 day ago
Welcome to mtg, dude! my first concern is the mana base, if you down have any pain lands (Llanowar Wastes, Caves of Koilos, Brushland), Sandsteppe Citadel should your only land that comes in tapped. good land count though, usually mtg decks have a 33% of lands, but I would consider more swamps and less plains, with forests staying high (especially with the Verdant Automaton's activated ability). I would take out Renegade Map, it does mana fix, but it doesn't ramp (consider Wayfarer's Bauble, Expedition Map for a good nonbasic land, or Sakura-Tribe Elder). And for combos: consider Barren Glory with Renounce, Spy Kit with Cornered Market/ Rememberance/ Pack Hunt. Also consider Tower Defense, Ranger's Guile, Heroic Intervention, Blossoming Defense, maybe Bonds of Mortality if you put in more removal, Young Wolf, Ghave, Guru of Spores. And if you like abzan colors, check out Fungal Growth. Plus I prefer the commander format over standard, there's lass turn 0 win assholes with Leyline of Anticipation, Lotus Petal, Mana Crypt, Show and Tell, Omniscience, Enter the Infinite. Hope this helps! If you or anyone else needs more help or have any questions, I'm always here.

If you want to go aggro, I'd recommend swapping your duel lands for the pain lands from Origins (i.e. Caves of Koilos). If you are focusing on counters, Hardened Scales and Kalonian Hydra are must-haves. Another fun card to play with is Primordial Hydra. Other cards are (in no particular order) Ainok Bond-Kin, Elite Scaleguard, Retribution of the Ancients, Scale Blessing, Sight of the Scalelords, and Tuskguard Captain. Have fun!

That's the horrible part for running a 5C Commander... there really is no cheap option for the mana base. In order for the deck to function on just a basic level, you need so many things.
So, first things first, you're probably gonna want to run each of the signets:
This allows you to filter any color of mana into two others. Honestly, this is the cheapest your gonna do for mana fixing.
Another artifact you may want to consider is Mycosynth Lattice. Not only does it make all your cards castable for just their CMC, it also has great synergy with Hellkite Tyrant for a complete win against every player at the table.
You could go with the Pain Lands. While they are cost efficient, they are definitely on a lower tier than other lands:
You can tell they vary considerably with the cheapest being under $1 and the most expensive being upwards of $20. The big problem here is obviously that these guys hurt you to get that color of mana you need.
The other lands I would suggest would be Mana Confluence and Spire of Industry. With all the artifacts you'll be running Spire will almost always be tapping for any color. Confluence is self explanatory.
There are a ton of other suggestions I could give, but those are the ones that just pertain to the mana base. As a side note, you could also run the Shock Lands like Blood Crypt, but they tend to be more expensive. They are probably better than the Pain Lands in that they don't have to hurt you to produce mana.
Hope that helps!

Ditch Gnarlroot Trapper and put in Elvish Mystic; mystic is just generally better. Another way you can take it is like I did. (take a look at my deck) Since you use lots of blink cards I would recommend Servant of the Conduit and Aether Hub so you can produce all the colors you may need. I would remove Beastcaller Savant for the servant.
Here's my frontier deck if you'd like to take a look: An Elvish Frontier.
Skybolt, I don't mean to sound mean, but you're incorrect. Caves of Koilos and Llanowar Wastes produce the same colorless mana as Westvale Abbey Flip or Crumbling Vestige; the only thing that changed was the image they use to show colorless mana.
