Sunken Hollow and Choked Estuary shouldn't be too expensive and both should have a pretty good chance of coming into play untapped as you have a good number of basics. Underground River also isn't too $$ as long as you can get your hands on a more recent printing of it.

Hey, good job for your first Commander deck. Nice Tezzeret the Seeker :)

When on a budget for the manabase it's better to rely on basic lands and dual lands that have interaction with basic lands. These can replace dual lands that will always ETB (enter the battlefield) tapped such as Azorius Guildgate and Dismal Backwater . The Guildgates and Life lands are not better than a basic land.

Lands within the budget to consider adding:

Land to consider cutting:

  • Azorius Guildgate
  • Dimir Guildgate
  • Dismal Backwater
  • Scoured Barrens
  • Tranquil Cove
  • Jwar Isle Refuge
  • Vivid Creek
  • Dimir Aqueduct
  • Temple of Deceit
  • Temple of Silence

I see too many creatures that don't interact with Alela. Nonartifact/enchantment creatures don't have much interaction with Alela. My advice is cut a lot of these creatures for more artifacts, artifact creatures and enchantments. You have Tezzeret that's a good reason to expand on artifacts.

Lots of mana rocks are good with Alela because they can be used to make ramp to play her faster and then after she's on the battlefield they can create Faeries. I see you have the Signets already which is great, but consider more budget mana rocks?

Three drop mana rocks such as Coalition Relic which you have are fine, but if you can replace a three drop mana rock such as Obelisk of Esper , Mana Geode with a one or two drop mana rock then this will help your deck.

Consider cutting the creature base down to only a few? Keep: Strix, Architect, Shimmer Myr, Simulacrum, Assembly, Master, Seer, Rider, Titan? Can then replace the other creatures with more artifacts/enchantments to make more interaction with Alela.

Cards within the budget to consider adding:

Etherium Sculptor and Foundry Inspector are good as low mana cost artifacts that reduce the mana cost of all other artifacts you cast. CMC artifacts are free for you to cast with one of these on the battlefield which can help to chain cast artifacts and make a lot of Faeries. Casting two drop mana rocks for is also good. Sai, Master Thopterist and Mirrodin Besieged are three drops that any artifact you cast after creates an artifact creature token.

If you're wanting to attack with a large Faerie/Thopter army then Bident of Thassa and Cranial Plating are cards that you want. Bident can be busted repeatable draw with attacking flying creatures. Cranial is good to equip to Alela since she has flying and the damage she does to a player is Commander damage. Throne of the God-Pharaoh is a deceptively powerful two drop artifact with Faeries. The life loss this can do will add up fast since it's repeatable at your end step making all your opponents lose life not just one.

Good luck with your deck.

I would suggest some other lands, preferably some of the following: Hallowed Fountain , Irrigated Farmland , Seachrome Coast , Flooded Strand , Mystic Gate , Fetid Pools , Darkslick Shores , Choked Estuary , Sunken Hollow , Polluted Delta , Sunken Ruins , Godless Shrine , Isolated Chapel , Silent Clearing , Fetid Heath , and Marsh Flats . If you find any of these suggestions helpful, I would appreciate it if you upvote my deck: A Deal with the Devil! But nonetheless, nice deck, hope this helps, and have a nice day.

Nice Deck, Mishra is a cool commander! The only suggestion I have regards the lands. Lands are my favorite part of magic as weird as that seems, so I am very specific about them. If I were you I would consider the following types of lands: Fast Lands, Reveal Lands, Filter lands, Shock Lands, Battle Lands, Check Lands, and Fetch lands: These types include but are not limited to the following cards: Darkslick Shores , Choked Estuary , Sunken Hollow , Polluted Delta , Sunken Ruins , Blood Crypt , Dragonskull Summit , Bloodstained Mire , Blackcleave Cliffs , Foreboding Ruins , Smoldering Marsh , Graven Cairns , Steam Vents , Sulfur Falls , Spirebluff Canal , Fiery Islet , Cascade Bluffs , and Scalding Tarn . If you end up finding any of these lands helpful, I would appreciate if you upvote and support my commander deck: A Deal with the Devil! Thanks, good luck on your deck, and hope these cards help!

Hey, nice start, several good cards and interactions here.

The manabase alone tells me this is a budget deck, but there's some budget upgrades to consider for the manabase. Your relying on basic lands which is fine on a budget, but if playing a lot of basic lands then consider adding lands that have interaction with basic lands?

Stream, Hollow and Vista have interaction with Farseek . Farseek being a two drop land ramp spell that can get a dual land is good when playing four colors. Other budget lands to consider adding:


Additional mana sources that use counters thus have interaction with proliferate is helpful ramp:

If going heavy on the +1/+1 counters theme then consider these cards that are within the budget here:

Cards that give you repeatable sources of counters should be priority over cards that only give you a one time source of counters. Repeatable effects especially if they don't cost any mana are very good in Commander.


More repeatable sources of proliferate can be helpful:

Other good budget cards to consider adding:

I offer more advice if you would like. Good luck with your deck.
