Commune with the Gods Discussion

seshiro_of_the_orochi on when wurms attack!

Now that the important things are said: i suggest Benefaction of Rhonas or Commune with the Gods to filter and to fill your grave for boneyard wurm. Also, Advent of the Wurm is pretty powerful, though it would need a little splash.

Thanks for the response, mate.

Oh, so true about Noble Hierarch. There're plenty of them in my town, but each one costs an arm and a leg...

After more casuals and FNM, I realized that Burn's not a problem. When Worship comes in play, it's pretty much over. I'm having a hard time to deal against discard decks. That made me think about just one Soulflayer splash (or sideboard). And this creature has a nice combo with Commune with the Gods. What do you think?

Feels iffy. Would maybe need Commune with the Gods to help it go off with more reliability?

Rishkar, Peema Renegade is pretty gnarly ramp sometimes, has an immediate impact, AND it gets hit by CoCo, probably worth a 1-of. Another good 3 drop is Tireless Tracker but it's worse without fetches, as with Narnam Renegade :/ . BoP feels real bad off of a CoCo and doesn't have counter synergy. A single Pendelhaven could potentially help your early game a little. Commune with the Gods hits enchantments so it might be worth looking at depending on how important you feel your Hardened Scales are. It also gets a bit better if you decide to run something like Evolutionary Leap to dodge removal. If you're going to be discarding stuff and want to be more aggro, Slitherhead is nifty. Tezzeret's Gambit seems like it could be ok in small quantities. More low cmc counter synergy creatures are Obsessive Skinner (which can get delirium a bit faster with Commune), Maulfist Revolutionary, Aquastrand Spider, and Spike Feeder.

Thank you for your comment patderyBlooming Marsh and Overgrown Tomb are good ideas.

But I'm not convinced to Commune with the Gods and Grisly Salvage. Throwing 4 cards away to get one into my hand seems a bit expensive. Isn't there something better?

Cool! I'm actually in the process of building an existence deck as well. A few suggestions: Ghastly Demise is a very good removal spell in this deck. I don't particularly like Seal of Doom, as I usually try to keep removal under two mana, but I'm guessing it's there for the enchantment synergy. Commune with the Gods is also cheaper than Benefaction. Finally, I personally find Transguild Promenade/Rupture Spire annoying, as it actually lowers the ammount of mana available on your turn. Im not sure that you need any 5-color sources in an only 3-color deck.

I would start with some straight cuts/replacements.

Devouring Greed is a lackluster kill condition, too expensive, bad at any point except when you're winning, and is double black in a deck that's splashing black. I would cut it and the black lands to streamline your deck, or I would cut red. Those are the two colors that are doing the least right now.

Benefaction of Rhonas is just way too slow for modern. If you are spending 3 mana for no effect on the board you are going to lose. Commune with the Gods does the same thing but trades a card for a a mana, which is a good trade in a low to the ground deck like this. However, I think something closer to Satyr Wayfinder, which puts a body on the board, but can only get lands, or Grapple with the Past, which grabs lands or creatures from grave and works at instant speed, but only digs 3 deeper, would work better.

Your mana base is questionable. I recognize that most of that is probably budget issues, but there are still things you can do. Scry lands are about a dollar each, and much better than life lands. You also would probably benefit from a few more basics, with Evolving Wilds to filter.

Shields of Velis Vel is just bad. Just about anything on your maybe board would be a better fit.

Next, I think you need to streamline the mana base by removing a color, either red or black. I think you can work with either, but they would be very different decks. Here's my idea, but you might want to take it in a different direction.

No Red: The deck becomes much more graveyard and combo oriented. Run cards like Grisly Salvage and Thought Scour to mill as much as possible. You then run Zulaport Cutthroat and 1 Bloodthrone Vampire for a combo kill off of one of the mass revival spells.

No Black: This is a board control route. Lightning Bolt and board wipes such as Pyroclasm would be the main gain, though the latter would probably be for aggro decks that you won't get the chance to overrun. Ember-Fist Zubera is a powerful card against plenty of decks in the format because of how many relevant 1 toughness minions there are in the format.

That's it for my suggestions, but let me know if you want any more. Like the deck.
