Cream of the Crop


Whenever a creature enters the battlefield under your control, you may look at the top X cards of your library, where X is that creature's power. If you do, put one of those cards on top of your library and the rest on the bottom of your library in any order.

Command Tower and Exotic Orchard are good cards

maybe take out vivd grove?

destructive revelry could be Hull Breach, Wear / Tear, or Orim's Thunder

lens of clarity and mighty emergence don't make sense to me

guild fued could be Lurking Predators

Cream of the Crop and Call of the Wild could be good

how has bearer of the heavens worked for you?

Greater Good could be nifty as well

I've been working on a budget deck that could use another set of eyes on it, Radha, Butcher of Keld.

Looks like a fun deck, hope you enjoy playing it!

How about Cream of the Crop or Greater Good both can help get those combo pieces for you Commanders infinite Mana.

Cream of the Crop is a really fun card, moreso with Elemental Bond or similar effects

While I know they're not tutors Cream of the Crop and Sylvan Library are pretty good top deck manipulation so maybe you can use that.

Congregation at Dawn isn't necessarily a tutor but I can set it up for your commander to do damage and get some free dinosaurs and play

Blood Mist and Duelist's Heritage I think really shine with this particular Commander.

I tried Cream of the Crop, which is a card I love, but card filtering just isn't as good as gas in this deck, imo, which is why cards I'm normally bearish on like Harmonize have found their way in. I'd probably even run something like Invasive Species over it.

Paradox Engine is great, sticking it to the board is usually a win because it usually gives you functionally-infinite mana while assembling a combo without the drawbacks of Umbral Mantle (and being a bit cheaper to get going).

BTW, if you haven't tried Prowling Serpopard, I really recommend it. It's more tutor-able than some of the other good options, has an efficient CMC-to-power ratio, and it can protect your combo turn on its own. It's a utility card I'm not angry I have to play on T3, which is great.

It's always great to see another selvala deck have you thought of adding Cream of the Crop I'm finding that it's extremely useful in my deck to dig through the deck and find that piece I'm looking for.

Maybe it can do the same for you.

And if you don't mind me asking how much is paradox engine helping you out in this deck I have a lot of people tell me to add it to mine. I just can't seem to pull the trigger.

I like both of them, but I am having a hard time taking cards out as it is. I had to make room for some good dinosaurs already. Any suggestions on what I should take out for Cream of the Crop and Sylvan Tutor ? I already lost two lands and two acceleration cards (one of which was my Mana Crypt).

Cream of the Crop and Sylvan Tutor for more deck manipulation, if you desire.
