I love taking a pile of cards and seeing what you can turn it into! I don't know which cards you have or what budget you have for acquiring new ones, but I'll list some cheap suggestions I have for a variety of archetypes you could pursue.

1) Simic ramp: Already goes well with Air Elemental, Archetype of Endurance, Oakgnarl Warrior, Overgrown Battlement, Yavimaya Wurm, Simic Keyrune. Some inclusions might be Llanowar Elves, Axebane Guardian, Coiling Oracle, Maraleaf Pixie, Beanstalk Giant, Terra Stomper, Lorthos, the Tidemaker. The goal is to accelerate into big threats.

2) U/G unblockable: Already goes well with Marang River Prowler, Downpour, Giant Growth, Might of the Masses, Aqueous Form, Coastal Piracy, Turntimber Grove. Some inclusions might be Curious Obsession, Daring Saboteur, Mist-Syndicate Naga, Ohran Viper, Trygon Predator, Distortion Strike. The goal is to get value from hitting with unblocked creatures.

3) U/G tempo/control: Already goes well with Breaching Hippocamp, Cloaked Siren, Mist Raven, Fog, Negate, Unsummon, Voyage's End, Claustrophobia. Some inclusions might be Vapor Snag, Dissolve, Mana Leak, AEtherling, Delver of Secrets  Flip, Devastation Tide. The goal is to deny the opponent their things while playing tricky threats of your own.

I also see cards in here that could work with mono green Assault Formation, simic +1/+1 synergy, or flying tribal, so you have a lot of options. As a sidenote, I'd also recommend upping your land count to about 24 while you have so many 5+ cost cards in the deck. Anyway, good luck!

This are the staple cards you need to get.







I hope this helps because it took forever to type out.

DemonDragonJ on What is your favorite combo ...

One of my favorite combinations is to cast Primal Command while controlling Riku of Two Reflections, choosing the search for a creature mode (the other mode is irrelevant) and then copying it to find Bloodwater Entity and Coiling Oracle. I then cast the Bloodwater Entity to put the Primal Command atop of my library, and cast Coiling Oracle to put it directly into my hand (and, if I have sufficient mana to do so, I copy both creatures, meaning that I can recover two instants and/or sorceries).

Hey, could cut Vengeful Rebirth for Twinning Staff. Rebirth for six mana, eight mana if copying it with Riku, is too much for what it does even copied.

An advantage that Riku has as Commander with creatures are creatures who have good ETB abilities since the copy token also triggers an ETB ability which equals lot of value. Coiling Oracle and Mulldrifter are the right ideas, there's also Risen Reef which is especially good with the other Elementals in the deck since it triggers each time an Elemental creature you control ETB including token copies of Elementals. Clever Impersonator is very versatile in multiplayer Commander especially when you can copy it.

Thassa, Deep-Dwelling can be repeatable blink. Blink a nontoken creature at your end step and this triggers Riku letting you create a token copy of that creature for only two mana. Can be great value with Risen or any other creature with an ETB ability. Impersonator being blinked by Thassa can be pretty fun. Eternal Witness for repeatable recursion of any card. The Avatars and Horrors make a lot of devotion for Gods.

There's several difficult color requirements here to cast cards especially Avatars and when adding on Riku's copy ability. Chromatic Lantern helps a lot, so can Dryad of the Ilysian Grove as another total color fixing effect. 24x basic lands is a lot to meet these difficult color requirements consider more dual lands to help with color fixing? Ketria Triome, Exotic Orchard, Cinder Glade, Yavimaya Coast, Shivan Reef, Karplusan Forest.

Other ways to help color fixing are land ramp spells that search for a dual land. An advantage of the new Triomes that are Forests such as Ketria are land ramp spells that can search for a Forest or another land type. Nature's Lore, Wood Elves, Farseek, Skyshroud Claim. These spells also can search for Shock lands which you have, that can really help with color fixing.

Good luck with your deck.

fmastrome2008 on Yarok extreme budget edh

I'll keep a note on budget...

Command Tower, Sol Ring, Sire of Stagnation, Massacre Girl, Elvish Visionary, Wall of Blossoms, Coiling Oracle, Farhaven Elf, Wood Elves, Farseek, Rampant Growth, Cultivate, Kodama's Reach would add some great value for this deck.

Another relatively cheap combo is Woodland Bellower -> Wood Elves and 2 lands, -> Fierce Empath and 2 fatties. That nets 6 cards off 1 creature.

I can tell this is a budget build. Here's some good budget options to strengthen this deck.

  1. Command Tower, Sol Ring should be auto includes in every deck you build.

  2. Great utility spells for this will be Reclamation Sage, Mulldrifter, Shriekmaw. These should honestly also be auto includes in this deck.

  3. You need more mana. Green decks love lands > mana rocks, so further your land acceleration with Farseek, Cultivate, Kodama's Reach. Further your ETB land triggers with Wood Elves and Yavimaya Dryad. Mana acceleration is a good way to speed up the deck via Llanowar Elves, Birds of Paradise, Deathrite Shaman and Elvish Mystic.

  4. Baleful Strix, Coiling Oracle, and Wall of Blossoms all further double card draw.

  5. Sire of Stagnation is straight gas. It draws 8 cards off 1 opposing fetchland. I've also drawn 12 cards in 1 cycle of turns in multiplayer.

  6. Woodland Bellower -> Wood Elves + 2 lands and Fierce Empath -> 2 fatties is a great way to further your board presence. 6 additional cards off 1 is an insane combo. I believe Empath and Bellower are both really cheap.

So, an update on the old 'Plow Under' lists. Worth looking at some of the old ones for tech. I'm not a fan of Coiling Oracle - I always feel like it underperforms unless you are really leaning into things like Familiar's Ruse.

I highly reccomend making 3-4 decklists with different 'packages'- gilder bairn combo, plow under counterspells/control, genesis wave/ramp, then switching between FNMs rather than trying to pack it all into one list. It'll keep your opponents guessing while maintaining consistancy.

I've found Risen Reef to be a powerhouse in this deck, even without the elemental synergy. Also, Cloud of Faeries and Coiling Oracle to be super useful as well. You definitely seem to be working from a higher budget than I am, but perhaps I can give you some inspiration as you've given me!
