Desert Twister Discussion
1 month ago
3 removals, like you said, is definitely way too low. Of course, doesn't have a LOT of removal, but you can consider those :
Scour from Existence, Bramblecrush, Desert Twister, Mwonvuli Acid-Moss, Reclaiming Vines. Land destruction is good for those who use Glacial Chasm, which is bad for your strategy. All Is Dust ONLY if you're in a pinch.
To a certain extent, you can go the route of making everything on the board an artifact with Mycosynth Lattice and all the green artifact/enchantment removal becomes effective against anything - even lands.
Also, an elf deck without Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury? BLASPHEMY! (I'm joking.)
Non-elf too good to pass : Eternal Witness.
Notable utility : Mirri's Guile is a free pseudo scry 3, every turn. Abundance if you do not need any other land drop OR if your absolutely need a land, you can choose... AND! If you got Sylvan Library out with it, it transforms it into a free Draw 3 every turn due to its replacement effect!
Hope this helps a bit!

Collected Company would certainly be of big help. Sol Ring is banned in Duel Commander which is the main format I happen to play.As for Sylvan Library I ordered one online last week and hope it will arrive soon. I will soon make some changes: i'll add Regal Force and Mystifying Maze and other cards. Beast Within will certainly substitute Desert Twister sooner or later.
Thanks for your positivity Despionnage

First off, welcome to MTG. It's a fantastic game.
Now on to the suggestions. A lot of them aren't budget, but they are things to keep in mind.
Collected Company, while not being budget, is a fantastic card for the amount of creatures you are running with many of them running in the less than 3 mana range.
Sylvan Library is really good for card draw.
That's all I've got for now.
Good luck on building!

VietMoneys I'm almost ready (after a little cleanup of my magic area) to start building my four color non- Dune deck. I think I'm going to make another mono deck too with Blind Seer as Paul Atreides post-blinding. But the non-blue versioni is going to have every desert possible and all of the flavor cards like Desert Twister and Razia's Purification along with all the wurms possible.

Tormod's Crypt for more graveyard hate. Nevinyrral's Disk is a good reset button. Desert Twister is high CMC, but for what its worth, you can nail a pesky Planeswalker with it if you need to. I'd go for Tranquility over some of your other choices, just to get the mana cost down a bit. Naturalize and Wear Away are other cheap spells that Disenchant. Every green deck can benefit from running an Eternal Witness, as well.

Mj3913 Thanks for the suggestions!
I'm thinking about taking out all the nonvital artifacts/enchantments so adding Fires of Yavimaya is iffy. Anger is surprisely expensive, and though i think it's better than Surrak, the Hunt Caller that's what i have for now.
The 7 mana removal options kinda don't do it for me. I think the idea that your removal should cost less than what you're removing sounds smart, especially when we're talking about a 7 mana kill one thing. That's not great in commander, I think at least.
bushido_man96 I like your ideas!
Crater Hellion is interesting. It's going to kill radha, at the very least, and I think I'd need to retool the creatures at least a little to ensure i don't lose too much.
Groundskeeper is good after a land wipe, but only in certain situations. The land kill spell almost has to be Epicenter, all the others kill it if it's out. I think it might be too slow right now, but I'll need more playtesting to see.
Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor Thanks for explaining your reasoning about Crop Rotation! I agree it's a good card, but it's not very powerfull by itself and kinda expensive($) so i think i'll leave it out for now.
Growth Spasm could go in, it's basically a 2 land ramp that has a least a marginal upside late game. Thanks for suggesting this one!
Argothian Wurm seems like a trap. It's just a big dude, and it might time walk me. especially if people are spitefull after a land wipe haha.
Ember Swallower seems so lackluster, if only it was a mini wildfire on monstrosity!
