Caves of Koilos Discussion

Hey, keeping your overall deck heavy black is good, the right direction, because of the low budget white and red are better as splashes mostly just for Edgar. You have about $50 to spend before you reach $100. All my card suggestions will cost half that. For the manabase consider a few more budget dual lands?

Can cut basic Mountains and Plains for these dual lands.

Most of my Vampire suggestions are one and two drop Vamps because I think you need more of them since they give you board presence faster because of eminence. The 10 budget Vampires to consider including:

Adding all these additional cards will cost about $24. This leaves another $20+ for a few higher end cards with Edgar such as Bloodline Keeper  Flip, Drana, Liberator of Malakir and Shared Animosity . Good luck with your deck.

Hey, Caves of Koilos , Concealed Courtyard and Shambling Vent are more budget dual lands. Esper Panorama can search for a basic Plains or Swamp. Reliquary Tower is very good when drawing a lot of cards. Consider adding more cards that can search for Skullclamp? Games where you have Skullclamp are going to be much better than not therefore having more ways to get Skullclamp directly into your hand is pretty beneficial. For budget consider Open the Armory , Diabolic Tutor and Relic Seeker ?

Requiem Angel , Viscera Seer , Reveillark , Archon of Justice are all budget upgrades for cards here. Requiem is a 5/5 flier can be a finisher and in combination with another token producer, a sac outlet and Teysa can make a lot of Spirits. When Reveillark leaves the battlefield as a result of it dying it triggers Teysa getting to reanimate 4 creatures with power 2 or less which is good with afterlife creatures. Justice is a 4/4 flier who when it dies can exile any permanent; exile two permanents if it triggers Teysa.

Cards to consider cutting:

  • 2x Plains
  • 2x Swamp
  • Orzhov Guildgate
  • Butcher of Malakir: don't need her since you have Dictate of Erebos .
  • Martyred Rusalka
  • Plagued Rusalka
  • Pious Evangel
  • Xathrid Necromancer
  • Harvester of Souls
  • Final Payment

Hey, I think the Tri lands are better than the Storage lands. Even though they come into play tapped, after that being able to make one of three different colors of mana is very helpful with a four color manabase. Mirrodin's Core and Tendo Ice Bridge are budget and they ETB untapped. Either can tap for colorless with/without a counter or with a counter they can tap for any one color of mana. These are like Storage lands, but are Rainbow lands that can also take some advantage of proliferate/Doubling Season.

Budget lands to consider adding:

These lands can replace basic lands since 24 basic lands is a lot for a four color manabase. I also recommend adding Fellwar Stone , Farseek and Nature's Lore . Potential early game plays that can help four colors and Farseek/Lore interact with Shock lands. Adding an Overgrown Tomb and Murmuring Bosk would help with these spells. Good luck with your deck.

Hey, nice version, but I think there's too many five drops, six drops and seven drops here. 16 five drops are making the avg. CMC of your deck higher than 4.

4.2 avg. CMC is too high especially when playing a three drop Commander. You can narrow down the five drops and keep the best ones: Mulldrifter, Peregrine Drake, Liliana Vess, Devastation Tide, Oath of Teferi and cut the rest. The same can be done for the six drops keep: Duplicant, Terminus, cut the rest. The seven and higher drops keep: Razaketh, the Foulblooded and that's it.

Vela the Night-Clad is a six drop, but if you combine her with Felidar Guardian and Aminatu then it's a combo to make all your opponents lose all life since both Aminatu and Guardian are continually leaving the battlefield which triggers Vela infinite times. Consider including both Vela and Guardian as your main win condition with Aminatu?

Consider cutting many of the high CMC cards for lower mana cost cards that interact with Aminatu or give you good value for the mana cost? Budget cards $3 or less each to consider adding:

Budget land $3 or less each upgrades to consider:

Hey, my suggestions are to improve the manabase. Lands $5 or less each to consider adding:

If playing proxies then add Fetch lands, Shock lands, City of Brass , Mana Confluence , Reflecting Pool , Forbidden Orchard , Glimmervoid , Academy Ruins .

Other cards to consider adding:

nathanl69 on Grandma's crippling sacrificial addiction

3 weeks ago

I'd cut Pitiless Pontiff for Viscera Seer or Carrion Feeder . Cartel Aristocrat is also pretty good, considering the entire Aristocrats archetype is named after it. Doomed Traveler , Doomed Dissenter and Hunted Witness are very good sacrifice fodder and would allow you to sacrifice things much more efficiently.

You have enough life gain to where Caves of Koilos is pretty much just an original dual land.
