Dauntless Escort Discussion
1 week ago
Hey man, I see that you are a Selesnya fan! Being one myself, and seeing you want some deck help, let me give you some general advice.
I actually made my own 50-60$ Selesnya deck for a casual series I made for my friends, which you can check out here (by the way, please check out the rest of the decks out in my budget series. I made one for each guild). I'll just give you a few suggestions from that deck which should help you.
Instead of Rebuff the Wicked, if you are trying to protect your creatures I recommend you run either an aura that protects them like Shield of the Oversoul or a spell like Gods Willing, because not only is it cheaper $ wise, but it can make a creature effectively unblockable for a turn if you like. Dauntless Escort also has a similar ability to Reknit, although I guess you can see it coming, unlike an instant.
Similarly, Primal Rage could be turned into more offensive power with an Unflinching Courage instead. If you want the passive to all creatures, perhaps a one-of of Nylea, God of the Hunt would be best. She is great with Wilt-Leaf Liege because the liege adds 3 green devotion.
Some other general advice I can make is that I think you would be much better off dropping the Knight of New Alaras and instead upping Wilt-Leaf Liege to a 4-of, because unfortunately the human knight is boltable unless buffed while the elf is not.I also recommend putting in some better removal. My deck has a bunch of options you can consider for that. Also, Tireless Tracker is another card worth considering. Hope this all helps! Feel free to ask me if you need any more help.

Currently, I think that boardwipes would not be too bad - but still bad -, because Gishath, Sun's Avatar can refill the board real fast. I don't want to waste too many slots for boardwipe-protection because this deck is already ramping a lot and in the remaining time it should pressure the opponents, I think.
My personal solutions against boardwipes would be Skullclamp and some of the changelings (Changeling Berserker, Changeling Hero and Changeling Titan) as those cards don't take up additional card slots, because you should play Skullclamp anyways and the changelings can just take three of the dinosaur slots. Skullclamp disincentivizes the use of boardwipes or gives you fresh cards out of it. When Changeling Berserker for example exiled a Regisaur Alpha, then you'd have a Regisaur Alpha + token on the battlefield left after a boardwipe.
If you want to use additional cardslots, then you might include Teferi's Protection, Heroic Intervention, Boros Charm or Faith's Reward but from my experience those cards are too situational, especionally in an active, aggressive deck. This is also why I like Boros Charm the most of them because it can also be used to give Gishath, Sun's Avatar double strike.

I'm going to make my comments here relatively brief, if you don't mind.
You have about zero removal or interaction, which worries me (excluding Price of Glory and City of Solitude, which are proactive). I would simply never leave home without Beast Within and Swords to Plowshares, at least.
Meekstone would be bonkers here. Might be worth picking up a copy.
Eldrazi Monument seems absolutely vital here. Gives you protection against board wipes, and even more evasion to boot. Speaking of protecting against board wipes, Selfless Spirit and possibly Dauntless Escort.
You seem VERY worried about counterspells here, in a (mostly) non-combo deck: you have Vexing Shusher and no less than FIVE "play only during your own turn" cards. Those largely seem like wasted spots - you're going wide, so I'd be much more worried about mass removal, no matter whose turn it is on.
Mother of Runes seems...okay? Protection is helpful, I guess, but she's more suited towards a deck that goes tall rather than wide. Speaking of going wide, True Conviction is neato, and Hazezon Tamar could fit in the 99 here.
And finally, for a deck that's 60-75%, you're sure investing a lot of money and using a lot of high-power cards. Might want to reevaluate how you look at what "75%" is.

Hello! I see that you have 111 cards in the deck, so here's 11 possible cuts for you to consider!
Argentum Armor - Cost 12 mana to get going.
Darksteel Axe - Just okay.
Eldrazi Displacer - Sure, you have a few good ETB effects, but not enough to focus on it. You also don't have as many colorless sources of mana.
Karmic Guide - Sigarda should be your focus and she doesn't go to the yard.
Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist - Neat effect, but do you really have room for a taxes or pillowfort sub-theme? Does this win you games?
Thrun, the Last Troll - I think you have too many people competing for the voltron spot.
Ulvenwald Hydra - Doesn't do much at the top of your curve.
And finally, I'd say cut two lands. 39 seems like a lot.
Sweet deck friend. +1

Alright I took a look.
I'll give you a list of cards I would remove and a list of cards to be considered.
Admonition angel - hell no they get their stuff back immediately
skybind - I might have missed why it is in there?
elvish mystic/avacyn's pilgrim - unless you are hoping to combo off in 5 turns or less I have found these little 1 mana makers to be useless, especially since your commander ramps
oran reef hydra
selvala - unless it's your general or group hug I would try to refrain giving decks card draw
I feel like your deck doesn't need more than karametra and the 3-5 other ramp spells. Your commander is always there and is indestructible so I feel like the cards I mentioned for removal could be swapped for stronger cards for mid-late game play.
Avacyn .... It's avacyn
Angel of Serenity - if it dies the opponents stuff goes back into hand instead of battlefield or you can get cards back from your graveyard if you exile creatures from your graveyard.
Emeria Angel is a not bad option for land fall
Those were already in your maybe board and good options
Here's a bunch of ideas haha. Your deck looks like a mix of enchants and creatures mainly with some token stuff. It's mostly green, sorry
Seasons Past - better than wildest dreams
Hooded Hydra - mana sync with secondary value
Gelatinous Genesis - Late game mana sync
Emeria, The Sky Ruin - getting 7 plains should be easy
Garruk's Packleader - I didn't see how many guys with 3 or over you have
Oracle of Mul Daya - expensive but she is good
Aura Shards - better in token decks but you don't have much removal
Glare of Subdual - better in token decks
Genesis Wave - late game win con?
Bear Umbra - a form of ramp
Vigor - expensive but strong
Into the Wilds - since you like your ramp so much haha
Darien, King of Kjeldor - don't touch me!
Lifeblood Hydra - beater plus lifegain and card draw on death
Temur Sabertooth - send cheapies back to hand and recast for more lands or to abuse other ETB
Greater Good - might be ok, works better with power 5+
Greenwarden of Murasa - more recursion
Primordial Hydra - always scary
Aid from the Cowl - It might work with all your perms?
Scute Mob - Scute Mob. And Scute Mob.
Odric, Lunarch Marshal - if your commander is out attacking creatures get indestructible

Loving your deck, and I love the Glittering Wish idea even more, sounds like a sweet deck with the inclusiomn of cards like Collected Company, I think you could also be a bit greedy and swap some of the creatures that you where using to control the board and use them as a beatdown strategy, basically change Reflector Mage and Lyev Skyknight for stuff like Rhox War Monk, Woolly Thoctar, Dauntless Escort, Jenara, Asura of War, Kitchen Finks...
Now, the deck gets fun when using Glittering Wish, it makes your sideboard very flexible, you can run a lot of stuff that makes sure your deck continues to beatdown uninterrupted, I'd personally think about Naya Charm, Bant Charm, Ojutai's Command, Detention Sphere, Izzet Staticaster, Dromoka's Command, Wear / Tear, Fracturing Gust, Firespout
