Crystal Quarry Discussion
3 days ago
It is good, but Cascading Cataracts is better since I can make any combination of colors, and Crystal Quarry is specifically WUBRG. I don't have a problem getting all 5 colors out, but I sometimes have trouble with the Cavaliers since they're triple color.

Oh, but looking at that page, there haven't been any submissions for WBG wolves. My suggestion is Karona, False God as a commander. You can still use Green Sun's Zenith , Finale of Devastation , and Chord of Calling to tutor up psuedo-commanders like Immerwolf or Tolsimir, Friend to Wolves , but you also get access to the Garruks you want. With access to red, you get Immerwolf, Huntmaster of the Fells Flip, Arlinn Kord Flip, and Pyreheart Wolf . Also, if you build it nearly mono-green, you can really take advantage of Fable of Wolf and Owl , relying on Channel the Suns , Crystal Quarry , and Cascading Cataracts to power out Karona.

Honestly there is one thing that you can do that is budget and will greatly improve the deck, make the mana base only run lands that enter tapped if the land taps for 3+ colors, if you can get it down to being only 1/3rd your lands enter tapped you will see quite the power boost, even the borderposts will greatly improve as you will have basics to pay the alternate costs.
"but I need the color fixing" you might ask, make the deck a little heavier green and run Rampant Growth effects or even Abundant Growth like spells. you can even keep the ravnica guild theme and run as many of the guild signets you can fit.
Now if you spend money on any land I'd suggest Cascading Cataracts , it's a better Crystal Quarry but is still cheaper, Fist of Suns is also an interesting option for any 5 color commander as you can pay that cost instead of the increasing cost for niv the 2nd or 3rd time you might cast him.
Now I am far too tired to get into much beyond that, there is quite a bit of things you could try for the guild spells. But if you make changes to your mana base it will indeed greatly strengthen the deck.

Picked up a Painter's Servant - just in case :)

This deck is pretty interesting. My primary deck is Najeela & I just run red & white. The only thing I can recommend to you is to include Crystal Quarry to assist in using her ability easier.

Hey there, love The Reaper King. I never made the deck myself but i had a friend in my meta who had it for a few years. It was formidable late game but he got bored eventually since there lacked enough interesting scarecrows. But now I think with the amount of shapeshifters/changelings out there the deck can be very fun, and it already looks like you have more than a solid start going on already.
Taurean Mauler , Mirror Entity , Amoeboid Changeling , Changeling Berserker , Changeling Hero , Cairn Wanderer , Crib Swap , and Shapesharer are the best of the changelings you have to pick from. Definitey no need to use them all but a few can definitely replace some of the weaker scarecrows like Wicker Warcrawler .
Crystal Quarry seems like a cute land to run.
I know scarecrows lean artifact but what are your thoughts on Prismatic Omen or Chromatic Lantern ? There is also Blinkmoth Urn for mana generation in artifacts. Krark-Clan Ironworks as an artifact sac outlet that also generates mana.
Oh and another thing about not enough good scarecrows to pick from... Arcane Adaptation is something to think about because you can even then play around with the idea of throwing in 2-3 absolute bombs like Vorinclex or Ulamog that would then become scarecrows.
Again, sweet deck ;) Let me know if any of that helps!
