Dictate of Karametra Discussion

Triton on Bumpy Landing $50 Budget Borborygmos

Budget decks and Gruul decks are always my favorite, and this is two birds with one stone haha.

I know it's a budget build, but doubling your opponents' mana can get pretty ugly pretty fast. I'd recommend cutting Dictate of Karametra for Whispersilk Cloak if it fits your budget Trailblazer's Boots practically give some Borbor unblockable. Gratuitous Violence is another card that is relatively cheap that I'd recommend adding to the deck.

I like Unravel the Aether since the artifacts have to be tutored for again which is far harder than using Eternal Witness or something like that to add it from grave to hand. Cheaper $$-wise, mana-wise and the Split-Second on Krosan Grip isn't always relevant.

Hope this helps!

What about Dictate of Karametra? Flashing it in on you opponents end step will give you a good manna boost.

I really like this deck and I think I might build something similar since I have many of these cards, including the commander, already. If I were you though I would include more mana dorks and land enchantments currently you are only running Elvish Mystic as a manadork but you can add Birds of Paradise, Llanowar Elves, Fyndhorn Elves, Beastcaller Savant, Zhur-Taa Druid, Sylvan Caryatid, Voyaging Satyr, Deathrite Shaman, Gyre Sage, and Arbor Elf. You can also run cards like Wild Growth, Overgrowth, Fertile Ground, Utopia Sprawl, Dictate of Karametra, and other land enchantments which interact very well with Voyaging Satyr and Arbor Elf which can untap an enchanted land. Also, with such a small number of instants and sorceries Primal Surge would destroy any opponent. You could try throwing in some removal as well such as Beast Within and cards that allow creatures to fight your opponents creatures. These can come out of nowhere and decimate your opponents thanks to Xenagos, God of Revels. these could include Epic Confrontation, Prey Upon, Nessian Wilds Ravager, Polukranos, World Eater, Pit Fight, Savage Punch, and Setessan Tactics. You shouldnt include all of these cards but go with whichever ones in each category that you like

Spudding, Thanks for the suggestions!

I have made a couple changes to the deck. I definitely plan to add Pathbreaker Ibex as soon as I can, that card is perfect for this deck!

I will have to stick with Dictate of Karametra for now due to cost and I don't mind the slight hug to stay on people's good side as long as possible.

Also, with Mind Slash, the group I play with has a good amount of control and pillow so I like being able to get a counter spell out of their hand before casting say Flowstone Slide or another Sorcery they would likely counter. I'm sure there are better choices for that but it's all I have at the moment.

One lovely synergy in my Selvala, Heart of the Wilds deck is her plus Dragon Throne of Tarkir + Primordial Hydra or Heroes' Bane. Sure, my huge hydra gets turned into a doorstop, but that cannot be said about my other creatures. This same combo can also be used when I want to turn around from ramping to attacking. It gets even better with Pathbreaker Ibex and Overwhelming Stampede or Triumph of the Hordes. You can probably try it out and see how it goes.

You also can try out Mana Reflection, Heartbeat of Spring, Caged Sun, Dictate of Karametra, Zendikar Resurgent, anything that adds to forest mana output, if you don't want to risk getting it Return to Dusted or Krosan Griped.

For some more mana sinks, you also can try out Genesis Wave, Tooth and Nail, Chord of Calling, and Green Sun's Zenith.

I disagree with Jace heavily, on basically all points.

That said, I am not a fan of Archetype of Endurance, Thalia's Lancers, Undergrowth Champion or Odric, Lunarch Marshal. I just think they are a big lack luster, with what you have going on.

I know it is a group hug as well, but Dictate of Karametra should probably also be Mirari's Wake. Group hug is fine but don't let people double their mana. That is when bad shit happens.

Green Sun's Zenith fetches most of your creatures, and can replace Thalia's Lancers (only doesn't hit Odric and Elesh and you can tweak around them).

Grasp of Fate can generally just be a better O-ring? You aren't really abusing it after all.

Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip is a decent enough value engine in this sort of deck.

Fleetfoot Panther is also worth a look as another way to abuse Karametra's effect.

Agreed! Hopefully I can be of some help with this deck too!

I made suggestions thinking we were optimizing for Surge, but if you want to take it out and just make it G/W good stuff then that's your perogative. G/W good stuff with Genesis Wave requires different suggestions than building around Primal Surge.

Either way you go, I like the elf sub theme you have going on. It's definitely one of the strongest ramp engines for EDH. Since you have a fair amount of elves, Elvish Archdruid, Priest of Titania, and Wirewood Symbiote might be worth testing. Not to mention they go very well with the creature draw engines you have (I.e. Soul of the Harvest/Primordial Sage).

As for the top end, I suggest overrun effects, Iona, Shield of Emeria, Void Winnower, and Pathbreaker Ibex.

Swaps I would suggest:

I made sure all the cards I suggested are under $10. I hope was able to help!
